Dear Canada: Please continue Spocking.
  Bank of Canada is pleading with Star Trek fans to stop “Spocking” its five dollar bills. Since Leonard Nimoy’s death, Canadian folks have been “Spocking” the hell out of the five dollar bill that features a portrait of Canada’s seventh prime minister Sir Wilfrid Laurier. Sir Wilfrid now sports, on certain bills at least, pointy ears, the signature Vulcan haircut and eyebrows and Spock’s mantra “Live long and prosper.” According to Bank of Ca...

And it's a good thing for everyone living nearby. Once the lake freezes over, there's no more lake effect snow.

The Yellow Sea | NASA Aqua Earth Satellite
Remote sensing of ocean color in the Yellow Sea can be a challenge. Phytoplankton, suspended sediments, and dissolved organic matter color the water while various types of aerosols modify those colors before they are "seen" by orbiting radiometers. Aqua-MODIS satellite data from February 24, 2015 were used to create this image.
 
NASA's OceanColor Web is supported by the Ocean Biology Processing Group (OBPG) at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. Our responsibilities include the collection, processing, calibration, validation, archive and distribution of ocean-related products from a large number of operational, satellite-based remote-sensing missions providing ocean color, sea surface temperature and sea surface salinity data to the international research community since 1996.

Preposterous!

I can't believe that beaming electrons to form words on a screen will ever be as convenient and efficient as growing huge forests in Canada, cutting down the trees, grinding them to a pulp, pressing it into thousands of sheets, smearing ink on them, then having fleets of trucks carry the result to everyone's doorstep.

I'm gone for just a week, and California turns green!

Here's Mount Diablo, surrounded by green hills and cumulus clouds. Both have been pretty rare in this historic drought. What a nice sight.

This is an interesting (and a little gross) way to generate some "free" power.

I would presume these folks know what they are doing and there's no additional risk of blocking up the system ("attention residents of Portland: eat more oatmeal!"). This is probably only worth doing at a certain scale too. 
Hydoelectric turbines have been installed in one of the main water pipelines in Portland, Oregon, utilizing the water pressure to produce electricity. The turbines work where water is flowing downhill, and are already recouping some of the energy...

I'd read about the Soviet fox domestication experiment many times before, but this had a lot to say about other animals people have had as pets, and was rather amusingly written.
How a furry-convention-attending, Midwestern-accented fox owner teamed up with a bizarre Floridian exotic animal importer and a Soviet geneticist to bring pet foxes to your living room.
