I'm strongly of the opinion that we stop allowing police officers to carry guns and instead supply them with only non-lethal weapons and better training. Thankfully this victim survived.

It's hard for a party to "Make America Great Again" if it doesn't look like the America it's trying to lead.

I'm a big admirer of +Vox but please, nobody remembers the original Ghostbusters for it's Reaganesque political message.

And FWIW the new Ghostbusters didn't disappoint this fan one eensy teensy bit.

It was sortof Reaganesque, by making the badguy be from the ERA.  But it was so thinly written that it was just kind of a throwaway, I found.

The DSCOVR satellite, over a million miles away, saw the Moon pass directly in front of the Earth in July, creating this wonderful and amazing animation.

Mike Olbinki's time-lapse video, "Vorticity", is an intense and intensely beautiful demonstration of powerful storm clouds.
