While I'm reviewing politics today... an article that might interest conservative intellectuals. (Like +David Brin, but I'm sure there must be others here on G+.)
"The gravitational center of the Republican Party is white nationalism."

Science, games, and humor.  What's not to like about this video of #PokemonGo ?  (Disclosure: I'm only level 2 after a whole week, but I did use the trick to catch Pikachu at level 1.)

Hmm. :(. You can also try at Facebook, where the video was published.

I said it about Star Wars, and now I'll say it about Star Trek: We, collectively and individually, have to stop paying money for this drivel. We succeeded in driving George Lucas away from the franchise, and now we need new minds at the helm of the Enterprise. We deserve better.
In its early days, the franchise studiously explored the big moral questions. No longer

Wrote a lot of the same things over the past few weeks. Sigh...

It'll never happen. Hollywood thinks "darker, grimmer, and dumber" are sure bets.

Kinda figured.  I think +George Takei​ was right.  Make a gay character that's real.  Half a century after the interracial kiss, Star Trek still can't have a gay kiss?  The franchise stopped being "Star Trek" years ago by refusing to force current society to examine itself.  The "pew pew zoom" action is supposed to carry the audience to the story, not substitute for it.
By revealing that Hikaru Sulu is gay, Star Trek Beyond boldly goes where no other installment in the classic sci-fi franchise has gone before. Speaking to Vulture’s E. Alex Chung, the 44-year-old actor disclosed that a scene was shot featuring Sulu and his husband (played by screenwriter Doug Jung)

Like anything this benighted branch of the franchise tries, they [bleep]ed it up. If they're going to make him gay, show the damned kiss.

One weather site says heat index 41C/105F.  At least it's comfortable in the basement.  :)  Burrow, overheated mammals, burrow.

If the election were held today, Trump would win. Keep up the pressure, delegates at DNC, to promote anti-establishment goals. That's the only way to whittle at Trump support. Sanders had that in spades, but DNC seems bent on preventing any such move.. *shrug*. It's their funeral. Epitaph: "Vote Hillary, or else."

P.S. There's still cause for hope!

P.P.S. I like some of those slogans, DNC protesters, but others aren't really useful. Regardless, keep up the pressure. The nomination votes have not yet been cast, and that's the only tally that matters.

I'm doing better than many Americans. I do have $400 for emergencies, and I might have $2000, but spending it would empty my accounts.
 
47% of us would have trouble finding $400 to pay for an emergency.
When nearly half of Americans would have trouble with a financial emergency, the nation has a problem

Humans do not live in isolation from nature.  It helps if you don't deliberately ignore other organisms as lesser therefore irrelevant.
 
New research indicates that a long-known relationship between honey harvesters and a small bird called the honeyguide may be more than just coincidental.

Lichens aren't quite what you were told. They aren't a symbiosis between 2 species, but between 3 species.

Biology textbooks tell us that lichens are alliances between two organisms—a fungus and an alga. They are wrong.

The science is great and the years of endeavor are admirable, but the headline is sensationalism.

Weather.com says the heat index right now is almost body temperature. The air upstairs in my bedroom is worse, even with all the windows open upstairs. I put a cot in the basement, so I think I can get some sleep tonight. Still no air conditioning here. :(
