Today's reason to give up meat: it directly supports domestic terrorism. 
Juliette Kayyem: There is no justifying what the armed group did in Oregon, but federal authorities should be patient. Time is on their side.

The comments reflect some great thoughts about the discrepancies between the perception of science and the reality of science.

If you're in MA, the good news is that solar is expanding fast... the bad news is that the state won't let it expand as fast as it could. 
Did you know that Massachusetts is one of our nation's solar powerhouses? In the last year alone, the state more than doubled the amount electricity it gets from sunshine. In fact, 100% of all new generation in 2013 was solar power. A program called net metering is one of the most important ...

Just watched Blade Runner last week, and realized it's a bit of a Noir SciFi film.

Now that the fed has made their interest rate not 0%, it seems likely that we are going to get to hear a lot about taxes this year (because the same economic indicators that signal the fed are going to be a subject of debate in paying for our governance as well). While I have strong and specific feelings on tax amounts (happy to get into that but not actually the topic here), I think everyone who does not sell tax prep software could agree that taxes could and should be simpler.

And they could REALLY be simpler. The IRS has over two thousand forms available on their website. Reports are that tax evaders regularly slip through the cracks because the IRS lacks the money and resources to follow up, and it's gotten to the point where some deductions are just bizarre in their complexity (much less existence).

With 2016 just around the corner, maybe we can all hope for congress to take a serious look at taxes in the coming year - not just arguing over whether they should go up or down, but eliminating loopholes and smoothing things so that automated systems begin to take hold for things like mutual fund investments and family trusts, so that people pay their fare share, but don't have to spend months chasing loose ends just to be sure they are reporting the right thing.

Or maybe we can do something much more radical and change the way taxes work all together.

Windows 10 is now officially my least favorite Windows since ME. Sure, just reset in the middle of me working on taxes, without warning. Then leave a sinister message "Your files are all where you left them"... no they aren't!

Okay, I admit I'm mostly just putting this here for myself... but I'm looking forward into digging into it a little more.

Introduction
I have taken things apart and built things for as long as I remember. I love good sci-fi and fantasy, in pretty much any media. I believe that progress is a group effort, and work as an educator to do my part in seeing the world become a better place for us all.

This is an amazing and well cared for area. We went up for the annual swing dance and lawn party, and it's well worth a modest ticket price to see and wander around this property. Truly a beauty... but expect to be stuck in traffic for Crane Beach for an hour if you come on a nice day.

This is decidedly not the place to get a large meal, or even sit and study while snacking, but despite its petite proportions there is a good variety of vegan food (mostly prepackaged) for you to grab and enjoy at your convenience, which include some interesting combinations off the usual path of vegan food.

The falafel here really is better quality than in many other places, and there are a lot of options for a good price, but it is a "make your own" environment selling something that vegans and vegetarians seem to have available in abundance already. Still, with friendly staff, good food, and a clean space, it's worth a stop.
