"GOP Race Engulfs Indiana" -- Headline of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 2 May 2016. Perfect use of words.

This is neat: The Ingress community is thinking of creating public art.

Ingres is a cell-phone game that overlays on top of the real world; special points ("portals") in the game are paired with interesting spots (public art, historical markers) in the real world.

So, when the Ingress people want more portals, what do they think? More public art! I congratulate them.

Who wants to fund some portals?!?!

More enthusiasm for blowing up people even than the Republican candidates?
Throughout her career she has displayed instincts on foreign policy that are more aggressive than those of President Obama — and most Democrats.

This is quite an interesting study!!
When a single genetic mutation first let ancient Europeans drink milk, it set the stage for a continental upheaval.

Renewable energy sources need energy storage to get you through cloudy, calm days. This looks like a beautifully simple technology for doing that.

It's the kind of idea where we all should be annoyed that we didn't think of it ourselves, years ago.
A new company stores energy using high-tech solutions, namely rocks and gravity.

Today, in a surprise ruling from the bench in the critical climate case brought by youths against the State of Washington’s Department of Ecology, King County Superior Court Judge Hollis Hill ordered the Department of Ecology to promulgate an emissions reduction rule by the end of 2016 and make recommendations to the state legislature on science-based greenhouse gas reductions in the 2017 legislative session.

Locally made mead and ciders. Quite good; you can come in, taste, and buy a growler.

A comfortable, ordinary coffee house. Good coffee (without being as pricey like some I could name). Coffee sizes are expressed in English (vs. made-up pseudo-European names). The iced green tea is nice on a hot day; pastries are generally unimpressive. Very friendly staff; good place to hang out, talk, or meet people.

It's the best view of Pittsburgh, *and* you can see the gears and cables that drive the cars.
