How is this tolerable in our country? Here are mortality rates for gun homicides in a variety of countries, along with a correspondingly likely cause of death in the United States. From the NY Times.

People’s blood sugar rises or falls differently even when they eat the exact same fruit, bread, deserts, pizza and many other foods.
Eating the same foods can produce very different reactions in people.

I don't know how much I believe this, but love the experimentation they did. Fun to read.
The human hand is a marvelous evolutionary invention: it can tie knots, tap out blog posts, wield tools and wire circuit boards. But how did we get these hands, with their long, dextrous fingers and conveniently opposable thumbs? It’s likely that tool-grasping played a role, but according to one evolutionary biologist, so did whacking your enemies upside the head.

Wow, that's great!
70% of of Iran's science and engineering students are women, and in a small, but promising community of startups, they’re being encouraged to play an even bigger role.

An interesting graphical illustration of income, student debt, and delinquency rates. 
More than 42 million Americans owe a total of $1.1 trillion in student debt, yet we don’t know much about it. We’re changing that. Using zip code-level Experian data on student debt, we’re mapping how borrowing for college affects the nation, your city, and even your neighborhood.

Two leading London galleries have join forces to exhibit a spectacular survey of masterpieces by leading international photographers spanning over a hundred years from 1910 to the present day. Exhibition opened on 25 November 2015 -- worth a visit if you're in London.

Some lovely photos of Fall colors across North America. 
Across North America the landscape is awash with color. Here are some of the best views, including a selection of readers’ pictures

This used to be a place you could get a top notch steak, and you'd pay for it. Now you just pay for it. The restaurant has grown into a much bigger new spot, and clearly they can't manage it well. My steak came half-cooked. Literally not cooked at all on one side. The replacement took so long to arrive that everyone else had finished eating already. We ended up leaving the restaurant without me ever getting my food. Please people, save your money and go to a decent diner if you want a mediocre steak. At $50 or more for a steak, it better be perfect. At Fleming's, it was not even close.
