Terrorism is not WWIII. Not even close. Terrorism is theater. Trump plays into terrorists hands and perpetuates it. 
Terrorism is a serious problem, but it has been blown out of proportion by political opportunism and a sensationalist news media. Managing terrorism requires us to recognize that it is a form of theater aimed at eliciting a disproportionate, counterproductive reaction.

Why most medical research cannot be reproduced. I am not advocating quack alternatives like reiki, homeopathy, magnetic field therapy or faith healing, but something is definitely wrong here. http://qz.com/603356/why-scientific-studies-cant-be-reproduced/
Something is rotten in the state of biomedical research.

No, it is a boulder.

CNN must be really desperate to put this crap on their front page.

The world isn’t going to hell in a hand basket. Got that going for us. - FiveThirtyEight
People on Earth were on average about as free at the start of 2016 as they were a year earlier, and the average global resident remained much freer than at almost any time in modern history. That’s…

It sounds like a good idea for all nations to ban any form of encrypted data. I cannot see anything that could go wrong. >> China Passes Law Requiring Encryption Keys From Tech Companies

Really great soba, udon and bentos. Good variety of related dishes, all excellent. Family eats here all the time and the staff remember my favorite dishes. The main downside is they allow smoking in half the room, which isn't partitioned from the non-smoking area. As of August 2016 the shop closes on Wednesdays.

The Mud Pie shake was pretty bland. I should have gone to McDonald's to get the same quality shake for half the price.

Good beers, decent burger. Got a side of veggies instead of fries and they were grilled perfectly, not too soft or oily. Good experience overall. Probably best menu in the immediate area.
