An idea not worth spreading... 
Suspicious emails: unclaimed insurance bonds, diamond-encrusted safe deposit boxes, close friends marooned in a foreign country. They pop up in our inboxes, and standard procedure is to delete on sight. But what happens when you reply? Follow along as writer and comedian James Veitch narrates a hilarious, weeks-long exchange with a spammer who offered to cut him in on a hot deal.

Check out my team's latest predictions for the 2015-2016 flu season.

The Los Alamos team’s model is an ongoing research project that forecasts the current flu season probabilistically, similar to best-practice forecasts of weather, presidential elections, and sporting events.

I think this is a thoughtful piece. Bernie Sanders, if elected, wouldn't get anything done because he doesn't understand what a post-Obama Democratic presidency needs to be like. We need someone nasty and pragmatic enough to take on the right — Hillary fits the bill.

Also keep in mind that those polls showing Bernie does better against various Republican candidates aren't apples and oranges. They are comparing a Hillary after years of right-wing attacks to Bernie before any. Of course he does better now. But once the right starts real opposition work, his campaign will be hopeless.

“Clinton's theory of change is probably analytically correct, and it's well-suited to a world in which Republicans will almost certainly continue to control the House, and so a Democratic president will have to grind out victories of compromise in Congress and of bureaucratic mastery through executive action.

But it is not an inspiring vision — it does not promise grand advances, transformative change, or a kinder, gentler political sphere. Clinton has the audacity to believe in the limits of her persuasive and political power, and an emphasis on limits doesn't fill arenas.”
There's never been anything audacious about hope.

'I’m tired of seeing her [Hillary Clinton] confronted by entitled men weighing in on her personal honesty and likability, treating the most admired woman in the world like a woman who’s applying to be his secretary. I’m stunned anew by the misogyny behind the attacks on her, and her female supporters, including my daughter. I’m sick of the way so many Sanders supporters, most of them men, feel absolutely no compunction to see things through female Clinton supporters’ eyes, or to worry they might have to court us down the road, take special care not to alienate us lest we sit the race out in November, if our candidate loses. Of course we won’t do that; we’re women! We’re trained to think about everybody else’s needs first."
I’ve come to feel passion for Clinton herself, and for the movement that supports her.

it turns out antivaxx nonsense has always been an auto-generated scam: HealthMe’s business model is to make an automated program that runs through every single drug and every possible side effect, scrapes the FDA database for examples, then autopublishes an ad-filled web page titled “COULD $DRUG CAUSE $SIDE_EFFECT?”. It populates the page by spewing random FDA data all over it, concludes “$SIDE_EFFECT is found among people who take $DRUG”, and offers a link to a support group for $DRUG patients suffering from $SIDE_EFFECT. Needless to say, the support group is an automatically-generated forum with no posts in it.

"If you're one of those people who know more than doctors [i.e., anti-vaccine], that's fine, but you're not allowed to go to the doctor anymore. Why would you want to go to a doctor who knows less than you do?"

A Brief History of Mathematics

This ten part history of mathematics reveals the personalities behind the calculations: the passions and rivalries of mathematicians struggling to get their ideas heard. Professor Marcus du Sautoy shows how these masters of abstraction find a role in the real world and proves that mathematics is the driving force behind modern science.

Story
Tagline
I'm a mathematical epidemiologist, a science geek, and fashion enthusiast.
Introduction
I work on developing and analyzing mathematical and computational models for infectious diseases. I also study the role of social behavior on disease dynamics. 

I'm passionate about increasing the number of women in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and making a better world for future generations. 

I strongly believe that you can be a scientist and still be fashionable. 
Bragging rights
I was an extra in the movie "The Avengers". My Erdös number is 4. I got to ride on a fire truck when a firefighter offered me a ride.

We used Kira for our maternity shoot session and had a wonderful experience. She provided guidance throughout the session and was able to incorporate some of the ideas we had in mind. The result was beautiful, effortless, and unique pictures that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. We're from out of town so she allowed us to view the pictures right after the session so we wouldn't have to drive back to view them. I should note that it was late at night and she had not had dinner yet. I think this clearly shows her commitment to her clients and work. We were back in town a couple of weeks later and she made sure our prints and CD were ready for us to pick up so (once again) we wouldn't have to drive back to pick them up. In summary, she's friendly, easy to work with, and very professional. I highly recommend her!

Worst Service EVER! If you want horrible service and average food, this is the perfect place for you! I've been living in Los Alamos for over 10 years and my husband and I eat out at least once a week. We like to support local businesses and since we have a very limited selection of restaurants, we were excited when the Dixie Girl restaurant first opened. I've been to the Dixie Girl several times (4-6) both with my husband and with colleagues from work. The food has always been OK and COLD, the service has mostly been average, however, all that changed on August 14, 2013, when the service from HELL emerged. We had a summer student and a research scientist who were leaving on August 16 so my team and I decided to take them out to lunch on August 14. I made reservations for 8 people at 11:30 am, we decided to go early because we didn't want to bump into the lunch rush hour. Our server took our order by 11:45 and we had to remind her to bring some drinks for some of us but that's alright. 45 minutes later (12:30), we still had not gotten our food, we had to go back to work by 1:00 pm because we had some meetings so I asked our server. She apologized and said that they had had some issues in the kitchen but that our food was coming right out. We got our food around 12:40, and she said that due to the long wait, that they were going to apply a discount to our bills, which I thought it was reasonable. However, when she brought the checks, there was NO DISCOUNT, I inquired about it and she said that her manager hadn't done it and if I wanted to get a discount, that I needed to talk to the manager. I had a meeting to attend and I honestly didn't care about the discount too much, but I think this is clearly unacceptable. I'm never going back. It's a shame that my options have been reduced. I always felt like their food was just OK so I don't mind not going back but the managers and servers both need to make sure that if the food takes more than 30 minutes to come out, that they reward the clients with something.
