Super cool! Science is fun!!
Scientists have developed a portable invisibility cloak that can be taken into classrooms and used for demonstrations. It can't hide a human, but it can make small objects disappear from sight without specialized equipment.

This would be devastating if it goes through.  Just to illustrate the mentality of those instigating this measure:

 "This isn't against libraries. Hell, my wife has a library card. I live, like, half a mile from a library," Voelker said. "The problem is, it's a matter of priorities. Libraries aren't bad, but in lean financial times, you can't be spending all your money on luxuries like libraries when you have other critical needs, like roads and jails."

Jails wouldn't be a "critical" need if libraries had more funding.  I work with many people who don't find libraries a "luxury," as they provide basic core services, such as access to a computer with internet access.

Most of the state's public library systems could be forced to roll back their tax rates and collectively refund millions of dollars to local taxpayers under a pair of lawsuits heard Monday by the Kentucky Court of Appeals.

An unknown number of hostages are being held by a gunman at a cafe in Sydney’s CBD as heavily armed New South Wales police move into position. Some inside the cafe were apparently forced to stand at the cafe’s windows holding up a flag bearing what appears to be the Islamic creed

Danny was such a beautiful person and will be missed by many.  A great tribute by Robert V. Aldrich.
At the dawn of November, my good friend Daniel Taraschke passed away. It was a very unexpected death, one with no warning or precursor. Not unlike an automobile death, he was there the night before...
