Pool Repairman Saves Squirrel With CPR

"C'mon little guy. You can't die," Gruber, a pool repairman who lives in Phoenix, Ariz., told the waterlogged squirrel as he tried reviving it.
When Rick Gruber saw a squirrel drowning in a pool last month, he did something most people would never consider: he pulled the tiny animal out of the water and performed CPR. "C'mon little guy. You can't die," Gruber, a pool repairman ...

Vintage Crime Scene Photos Superimposed on Modern NY Streets

"Grisly violence is an undeniable part of New York’s DNA and the juxtaposition of the old, black and white images with the modern “Times Square” version of what most people expect today is incredibly fascinating – truly making ghosts walk amongst us."
Photographer and historian Marc Hermann has done a beautiful job pulling historic crime scene photos from the New York Daily News archive to blend them with photographs of the same locations today....

NASA has officially called off attempts to fix Kepler

"The $600 million Kepler mission has been in trouble since May, unable to point with precision at faraway stars in its quest for other potential Earths. That's when a critical second wheel failed on the spacecraft. The first of four gyroscope wheels broke in 2012. At least three are needed for precise pointing."

Brain Activity Shows Basis of Near-Death "Light"

"There may be a scientific explanation for the vivid near-death experiences, such as seeing a shining light, that some people report after surviving a heart attack."

University of Michigan scientists performed research on nine lab rats that were anesthetized and then subjected to induced cardiac arrest.  In the first 30 seconds after their hearts stopped, they all showed a surge of brain activity, observed in electroencephalograms (EEGs) that indicated highly aroused mental states.

"In fact, at near-death, many known electrical signatures of consciousness exceeded levels found in the waking state, suggesting that the brain is capable of well-organized electrical activity during the early stage of clinical death."

Why You Should Spend Your Mornings In A Cave

“Creativity happens when you work independently,” she says, echoing our finding that insight comes from not having distractions. “Individuals are really good at generating a whole lot of ideas, while groups are good at selecting, shaping, and refining those ideas.”
 
People are most creative when they work without distraction. But what does that mean for the team? Welcome to the cave-dwelling future of...

Q: HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED?

A: "You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids."
