Maybe I'm just in a cynical mood this morning, but if this gist of this article is correct... well, I can only shake my head and sigh.
 
"The Kochs and their organization, like many prominent conservative groups and pundits, are ideologically opposed to public transportation. Mass transit projects require government revenue—Amp was going to be made possible with help from federal funding—and mildly inconvenience drivers who share roads with them."

#publictransport  
Lawmakers just passed a bill making Bus Rapid Transit illegal in the state of Tennessee. And if a conservative advocacy movement gets its way, that's just the beginning.

Egad...
 
Jews in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk where pro-Russian militants have taken over government buildings were told they have to "register" or "will be forced outside the country with a confiscation of property."
Jews in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk were handed leaflets ordering them to register with the new self-proclaimed pro-Russian leadership, according to an Israel-based organization that monitors

Agreed. Just the fact that someone who's currently in authority there would do this is ghastly.

Google buys robotics companies and now a drone maker who's drones can stay airborne for years. I've said it before and will say it again: Google will usher in the robopocalypse.
 
Google agrees to buy Titan Aerospace, maker of high-altitude drones.

That's only because you haven't seen Colossus: the Forbin Project. Skynet has nothing on Colossus.  ;)

SPOILERS! Don't read on if you didn't watch last night's episode of A Game of Thrones.

...

I like this article for this quote:

“The Lion and the Rose” spends more than 24 minutes on Joffrey’s wedding, a remarkable piece of social theater. But cruelty is the real theme of the episode, rather than the rather more obvious lesson that you never, ever want to go to a wedding in Westeros.
Who pulled off the most audacious murder "Game of Thrones" has ever seen?

Since 2001, 26 atomic-bomb-scale explosions have occurred in remote locations around the world, far from populated areas. This Earth Day, Tuesday, April 22, three former NASA astronauts will present new evidence that our planet has experienced many more large-scale asteroid impacts over the past decade than previously thought… three to ten times more, This, according to a new visualization of data from a nuclear weapons warning network

I wrote about this in EARTH (1980).  Defense folks have long worried about such things triggering a war.

This is something you'll love to watch. This is a very good Japanese animation. I watched this cartoon with great pleasure. I hope you like it too.

I somehow missed this as a kid. I don't know if it just wasn't on our local UHF stations or what. I can't wait to see this, though.

I need to read more details about this, but it sounds promising.
 
Just going to leave this here for people who understand the science of turning sea water into a viable fuel source better than I do...

A quick game of Combat Commander: Europe had my Germans push some of the British D-Day invaders out of a small French town. I was lucky with a great smoke round hit from my mortar, obscuring one of the Brit heavy machine guns, and fire from my own HMG suppressing the other Brit heavy MG. That allowed some of my troops to assault the smoked gun, then continue on into the town center where the objectives lay.
