I knew there was a good reason to eat fish, just could not remember it.
 
I had lasagna.
Among carriers of the gene that increases Alzheimer’s risk, a study found a benefit from eating seafood at least once a week.

My mother used to say that fish was brain food. Not sure what she based that on. I like to take fish oil though. It's cheap enough and there seems to be a lot of evidence that it's helpful.

The only thing that matters is if you can afford the education and, if loans be taken out, be able to pay them back.

Save the date.  About 30 million years from now a part of the Milky Way will get quite a light show during a major star formation event.  Of course that will be spread out over quite a long time ...
A giant gas cloud hurtling towards the Milky Way could form two million new stars when it finally collides with our galaxy. The discovery was made after astronomers managed to figure out the chemical composition of the Smith Cloud, a huge formation of gas approaching the edges of the Milky Way at a speed of around 193 miles per second.

Seems like democracy takes a distant second place to oligarchy in the Democratic party.

Sanders won 60 percent of the vote, but thanks to the Democratic Party’s nominating system, he leaves the Granite State with at least 13 delegates while she leaves with at least 15 delegates.

...

In the overall delegate count, Clinton holds a commanding lead after a razor-thin victory in Iowa and a shellacking in New Hampshire. Clinton has 394 delegates, both super and electorally assigned, to only 42 for Sanders.

Sanders never had a chance, no matter how many people voted for him.
Though Bernie Sanders won the New Hampshire primary in a landslide over Hillary Clinton, he will likely receive fewer delegates than she will. Sanders won 60 percent of the vote, but thanks to the

Eating the equivalent of spreadable bacon on rye bread. It is so good, but probably a dietician's nightmare.

And here we go ladies and gentlemen ... every indication is that Trump as a candidate has a glass jaw. This is a turning point in his campaign, certainly not for the better. I expect him to become irrelevant within the month. He won't even make it to the SEC primary. It's been entertaining, but the show will end soon. The coda certainly won't be quiet.

Just remember, never go full Trump.

+Johan Edstrom, it's the election season. I'm taking my shot at political punditry, but I'm keeping my day job. It's a bit of fun, my prediction is bound to be wrong in some way.

There is no good reason for this to happen. A country favored with natural resources, an educated workforce, good climate, fertile soils should not suffer so. They have everything they need to have prosperous economy, well except for a society that's organized to take advantage of it.

The super duper swiss army knife of combat aircraft just doesn't cut it.  Dump this turkey, cut our losses.  The whole approach is flawed from the beginning.  Too expensive a lesson, but maybe enough will heed it.  We don't have enough money to keep throwing it away on this, we didn't have enough money to waste on it from the beginning.
The F-35 program is $163 billion over budget and seven years behind schedule. And the planes still don't work.

Then again - maybe the super secret reason the F35 is so darn expensive is that it's really a space interceptor.   I say "maybe".  Don't bet on it.
