This is pretty sad. I didn't know about Cat Island, but after watching this I feel like everyone should know about the island. 
 
April 14, 2015 - Cat Island was once one of the four largest bird-nesting grounds in Louisiana. But the Deepwater Horizon oil spill killed the mangroves growing there, destroying the root system that held the island's sediment in place. Since 2010, the 5.5 acre island has been washing away into the Gulf of Mexico, and migratory birds find their home disappearing before their eyes.Click here to read more:"Scientists tracking Gulf sparrows, insects...

This is actually pretty funny stuff. 
 
A satirical website like The Onion but made especially for women.
The sharply witty ‘Reductress’ site doesn’t just satirize the sexism women face, but also the inadequacies and failings of feminism itself.

If PAC was a little bigger he'd have a real shot. This is what I expected so far.

I'm so glad the group of friends I was with last night didn't decide on buying the PPV fight last night. We were hoping Pac would win.

The union representing Baltimore police officers set up an online fundraiser on Friday on behalf of the six officers indicted in connection with Freddie Gray’s death, only to have it disappear within an hour.

The decision was based on the cost of the fight. I think it's about $5,100 a restaurant and so we did not feel comfortable with the cost. And then, also, with the time of the fight being at 8 o'clock Central, for our stores on the West Coast it would be right in the middle of our dinner hour.

That Harry Potter book thing was funny!! But all in all, I don't care for Mayweather at all. Boxers box, and he has been dodging fights for years now. Can you imagine if Hagler dodged Hearns, or Ali dodging Foreman. It would have never happened in their day because if you were the best you fought the best. Mayweather is a drama queen and thirsts for attention, I don't support him or his fights. On top of that dude is a defensive counter puncher the whole fight, well at least 10 of the 12 rounds. That is so boring to watch. I just don't respect the guy in the ring. Lastly, hitting women is being a coward, I could go on and on about that but I won't.

Amazon gets it

I just purchased a used book I've been wanting to read for about 16 years. If only that were the cool part. Immediately after I purchased this used book I was notified by amazon that I could start reading it immediately on my kindle app. I don't know how far I'll be able to read, it could only be a sample, but I still think that's great marketing for their kindle store.

"I've always been a boxing fan of Mayweather, but I just didn't think he had that left in the tank to shoot down Manny Pacquiao, and he did. He ran away with it, made it look so easy. The guy is a genius, a goddamn genius." 

There are boxing fans and there are people that want to pay money to see a knockout. Listen to Johnny Nelson break down why Mayweather proved him wrong for picking Pacquiao, and why he wouldn't pay to see rematch between the two. This was a clinic. One fighter wanted a brawl and the other fighter came to box. The pure boxer outclassed the smaller brawler, and that's usually going to be the result when those type of fighters clash.

+T. Osinubi I couldn't pull it off and I can't think of any other fighter that could. As far as the hand picking, that's harder to say now that he fought paquiao. Who can really beat the guy? He could have beaten PAC 6 years ago. Father time eventually will defeat him, but I think we agree on his level of skill. I'd like to see him retire after 49 wins, but I think the money will keep him in the game.

“I think this is a serious equality issue, and I’m not going to shy away from it,” Venice Council member Melissa Diner, who sponsored the bill, told the Los Angeles Times. “The wave of publicity that instantly followed the decision had done exactly what she’d hoped: “start a conversation about not only wanting to show our nipples on Venice Beach but about what else people want to see.” 

“Venice Beach was founded and designed around the European culture of Venice, Italy,” the neighborhood council said, “and … topless [sun]bathing is commonplace throughout Europe, much of the rest of the world and many places within the U.S.” 
Gender equality takes all forms. And if the Venice Neighborhood Council has its way, women will once again be treated to the same freedom as men when it co

You may not know Michael Jones, but you know what he built: Google Earth. Now, he's behind a product that is essentially Google Cardboard done right. 

Unlike MS's offering, it has a wide FOV so that you're not wearing blinders. Unlike Facebook's, it leverages your existing smartphone. Unlike either, it's designed to be cheap. 

This is a very good idea and he's absolutely the right person to make it work. -+Steve S​

Don't let them tell you we can't afford it

The truth is we can't afford not to invest in being competitive.

The U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq will cost taxpayers $4 trillion to $6 trillion, taking into account the medical care of wounded veterans and expensive repairs to a force depleted by more than a decade of fighting, according to a new study by a Harvard researcher.

“Historically, the bill for these costs has come due many decades later,” the report says, noting that the peak disbursement of disability payments for America’s warriors in the last century came decades after the conflicts ended. “Payments to Vietnam and first Gulf War veterans are still climbing.”

"Another reason to support body cams on cops: a newly released video out of San Francisco shows a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) police officer slamming a drunk woman down to the ground rendering her unconscious in a pool of blood with multiple face fractures and broken teeth. 

Megan Sheehan, 28, was arrested for being drunk and belligerent at a BART station on St. Patrick’s Day of 2014. According to police reports she struggled with police while arrested and then in the car ride over to the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, Sheehan urinated and tried to wipe herself on arresting Officer Nolan Pianta’s pants. 

Once Sheehan was escorted into the lobby of the jail she began to riffle through her purse, after Pianta told her to stop Sheehan flicked a hair tie at him. According to Pianta’s incident report, he then attempted to handcuff Sheehan but she tried to punch him."

Their Pho hits the spot when I'm in need. Every once and a while I have a serious craving for Pho and this is usually where I decide to spend my money.

Long lines, empty shelves, most of the cashiers are decent but they have a couple that don't even greet you, and it's a small store with a very limited selection. There really isn't much that can be done, other than closing it down. I'd recommend shopping at another safeway. This is the worst one I've ever seen.

Cold fries... If you complain about getting cold fries the manager will give you a bad time. Also, they won't give you a refund if they give you cold food. They need a change in management.

This is my favorite Costco! I can't believe we have a Costco in the city. It just sounds like it would be a total nightmare but it works. 3 level parking FOR FREE! It's even easier to get in and out of than the one in South San Francisco and it's close to the freeway.
