I'd hibernate through summers. I rarely exit my A/C apartment in Florida summers. It's just wayyyy too hot for me. I was born in ice and snow and that I can take.

The article is a summary of the findings of military analyst Andrew Krepinevich on where threats economically and militarily could escalate in the near and long term globally for American national security and the security of allies. He states his reasons for such findings as well as recommendations on where military investments should be made and focused.

What a find! Viruses leave behind messages for succeeding generations of viruses to tailor-make a stew of variables to overhwhelm the host or they then decide to go dormant for awhile and spring out a surprise later...

These are questions that people ask themselves when faced with the reality of a domestic abuse victim or survivor. This article answers these questions for you so that you do not inflict further harm to the battered one who is in perhaps too confused a state or emotional quandary and/or financial straits to remove themselves from their isolated state in a relationship.
For National Domestic Abuse Month, here's what you probably shouldn't say to a domestic violence survivor. Make your bystander intervention more effective.

Two gentle giants often adopt or nap with much smaller farm animals - even baby chicks. There are great photos in this article....

Tiny goat Hans arrived as a new-born at a farm in Belgium after his mother died, but his new owners realised they couldn't bottle-raise him - so St Bernards Julie and Basiel stepped in.

Once thought to be a rare condition, some forms of synesthesia may be fairly common

+Timothy Sveum indeed there are benefits - for instance the more senses involved in learning something the greater the ability to recall them.

As for negative... if you've seen my posts about suffering migraines, imagine what experiencing one where something like the visual distortion/aura from them is like if you 'hear' what you see. No imagine what it is like when all your senses are cross wired like I have.

But I'd rather be a synaesthete than not be one.

I've been catching up on emails that piled up while I was in hospital and during recovery time and found this one I wanted to share. It's due to the efforts of several conservation organizations and supposedly more new calves will be here shortly.
Conservationists are celebrating the birth of a rare Scimitar-horned oryx in Chad, who is the first calf to be born in the wild in 30 years.
