Apple might be artificially slowing down your iPhone, to force you to upgrade.
Why does my phone seem to slow down when a new one is introduced? The data show correlations, not conclusions.

Attention all northeast residents. 
 
Don't think you have Lyme disease in your neighborhood? Check out the map--it's spreading. (And there are other tick-borne diseases too.)
This year may be a bad one for Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. One group of parasitologists is predicting “higher than usual threat” in areas where Lyme is already common, and the disease continues to gain territory every year (as the CDC maps above show).

Night time recovery of the Puma AUV, after completing a long successful mission.  

We have beein using the Puma AUV as a scout for the submarines. Each day we send the AUV to collect thousands of images of the seafloor, and use ROST based topic modeling to identify interesting locations for further exploration through the submarine.

Do these sea urchins belong to the same species? We are not quite sure yet. Will have to patiently wait till we get the results from the DNA analysis.

Briskets and pulled pork sandwiches are just great. I love the spicy sauce they have. Its thin and lets the flavors penetrate deep into the meat. Simply delicious. I just wish they also served beers.
