Another first for Obama. A good one, too.
President Obama has achieved a first for a sitting president – he's published a paper in a leading peer-reviewed journal. The paper reviews the introductio

Gorgeous clouds rolled into Kansas City today. I just had to take pictures. Roll clouds and everything. Looked like paintings in some places.

Apologies for the quality and such. I rarely take pictures. But I hope you enjoy anyway. :)

This? This is good storytelling. Give it a read.
In Il Lupo, a blind girl who has no sense of fear gets lost in a deep, dark forest—the kind of place where one might expect to encounter a monster, which she does. But then things take a turn in this short horror comic drawn by Victoria Ying, and written by her brother Jonathan Ying. Read the whole thing here.

The local plants, they be important to the history of the area as well as potential descriptions that can anchor the reader in the place and time. This article reminds us why it's important to have gardeners as well as warriors in our narratives.

This? Gorgeous. Go watch if you're a weather junkie.
If you didn’t grow up in the American Midwest, you’ve probably never truly experienced the fury of a tornado-spewing summer thunderstorm. Storm chaser and wedding photographer Mike Olbinski edited 60,000 frames worth of timelapse sequences into this six-minute montage called Vorticity that will leave you with a new respect for Mother Nature.

This robot? Damn impressive. I want one for Winter Solstice. :p
Boston Dynamics, better known for the hulking robot brute known as ATLAS, has just revealed a considerably smaller creation that looks like a cross between a golden retriever and a baby giraffe. But forget about it just replacing your family pet: SpotMini looks like it can replace your housecleaner too.

Love Patricia A. McKillip!

Cats and cakes combine in other memories, as when I made a chocolate cake (entirely edible) for my parents’ wedding anniversary. I frosted it with chocolate, and filched a jar of my father’s maraschino cherries he liked in his Manhattans. I cut the cherries in half and placed them decoratively all over the frosting on the top and sides of the cake. I left it on the table to be admired and went to do other important things. When I came back I saw the cat on the table gently picking the cherry halves off the cake and munching them down. I did the lightning thing with my hair and the thundery thing with my voice and the cat vanished. I contemplated the problem for a moment. Nobody else was around. I halved more cherries, stuck them on the empty spots on the chocolate, and everyone ate cake with enthusiasm, blissful in their ignorance.

YES!
Alexander Hamilton will stay on the front of the $10 bill, and Harriett Tubman will boot Andrew Jackson from the front of the $20.

Another bit of why it's important to worldbuild not just the food, but the plants that the food comes from.

~~~~~~~
Attention all single, divorced, separated, and widowed men who continually circle me!

I am not interested in any outside relationships. I am far too busy with my current set of relationships, including my marriage, to be looking for anyone else to add to the mix. My life is complicated enough. So, Not. Interested. No special cases, no long-distance relationships, no exceptions. My looking for line is not lying. Friends only. If someone wants to follow along to see what I have to say, that's fine. Otherwise, I refer you to Johnny Lee's song "Looking for Love". As in, this is the wrong place.

I am especially Not. Interested. if you're older than I am. Hard limit. Nope. No exceptions, either. No special cases, no give it a try, no nothing. Look somewhere else.
