This infographic, showing the genetic makeup of different dog breeds, is fascinating. As a past Borzoi-owner, I would not have guessed they were genetically related to herding breeds...

Interesting... I wonder if that's because people can't get jobs in their

The numbers might be off a little, but this is the kind of analysis that the media should do. People need more data about real risks, rather than more scary stories...

The "Higher Education Bubble" is starting to get mainstream attention. Key issue: "For example, in 2009 the base salary of UC Berkeley’s vice chancellor for equity and inclusion was $194,000, almost four times that of starting assistant professors. And by 2006, academic administrators outnumbered faculty."

Maybe it's just me, but if you're hoping for lots of good press coverage for the release of your new console, wouldn't you pick a day other than the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination?
