The New York Post bringing a new level of suck to journalism. Initially reporting 12 death at the Boston Marathon without fact checking and now marking two innocent bystanders as suspects.

Neato. This might solve that problem of losing each other on the slopes. 
With about a month left in the season, time’s ticking down to hit the slopes for that last little bit of spring skiing. Now it’s even easier to plan your trip (and not get lost) with Google Maps.

We’ve just released trail maps for the runs in over 100 more resorts across the U.S. and Canada, from Alta to Whitefish. Check out all the new additions - greens, blues, and blacks - on this map (http://goo.gl/680Ni), and don’t forget to share this post with your fellow snow lovers!

This really makes sense after seeing the PS4 announcement. Going from console generation to generation the changes have become less distinct.

I wouldn't be surprised if this hurts adoption rates for the new round of upcoming consoles. Excluding the Wii U with it's own set of issues.
The diminishing returns of videogame graphics

The number of polygons a console can create is ultimately what gives you better graphics (not to be confused with art style). From PS1 to PS2 we saw a huge leap and the same can be said for PS2 to PS3. Now that the PS4 has been announced, we shouldn't expect a gigantic graphical leap again as exhibited in the image below. Now more than ever artificial intelligence, art style, and immersive game worlds will be the future - not photorealism.

I'm sure the games will be insanely beautiful and being able to render more thingies at a time is fantastic, but here's to hoping developers use the processing power of next-gen consoles to do more than just make realistic graphics.

I would hope that National Geographic would be more careful in potentially encouraging the same sketchy Eastern medicine that has already been devastating wild life all over the world.

I'm Vietnamese myself; I've reluctantly gotten to see some of these foolish superstitions firsthand.  I've seen people ruin and lose lives where proper modern medicine would have worked miracles.  There is a danger when people choose to delay or forgo treatment in favor of these wild goose chases.

Yes, venom and other biological functions of animals can be studied and offer great advances in the medical field, but making these wild and dangerous claims outside a scientific/medical context without further studies is irresponsible. Further studies should be encouraged as well as the preservation of these ecosystems for that same reason.   

So much wildlife and ecological diversity has already been lost and Eastern superstitions are not helping that fact. Rhino horns do not cure cancer and tiger bones ain't gonna solve your limp friend. 
Snakes, snake eggs, and lizards infuse rice wine in bottles at a restaurant in Le Mat Village. Locals say that drinking these concoctions eases pain, keeps organs healthy, and boosts virility.

See how scientists are unlocking the medical potential of venom: http://on.natgeo.com/XPkngI

The freedom to give away wealth rather than a government enforced obligation.  I'd like to know whether one or the other has more of a an impact. Whether people can be relied upon to be charitable upon there own will or whether society and government are necessary to enforce the common good over an unwilling populace?

Fracking has been a huge game changer in the US. Increased natural gas supplies and the subsequent drop in price of gas has changed the landscape of energy and resource production. Strangely enough though this has hurt producers and been a boon for their consumers. 

There's been a push in both gas and coal for the export of these resources into the higher priced international market and out of the oversupplied and under priced US market.

I'm curious whether such an effort would be beneficial to US interests? And also where our current candidates stand on this topic?
