A great opinion piece by +Mike Lofgren over at billmoyers.com that distinguishes ignorance from anti-knowledge. 
Ben Carson’s rise to the top of the Republican presidential field shows that many Republicans, especially Christian fundamentalists, have decoupled from the real world — and are proud of it. The more that GOP candidates embrace “anti-knowledge” the more popular they become, as Mike Lofgren explains.

Here are some creative remixes of #starwars characters blended into rock music culture. 
The return of Star Wars has brought us many good things (a chance to revisit our Han Solo crushes from 4th grade) and many bad things (ketchup-infused VaderDogs). But nothing out there is as truly awesome as these album covers inspired by the Star Wars universe.

A reminder that, just because unusual weather moves off the eastern seaboard, it doesn't stop being unusual.

Rising sea levels, strong storms, and longer droughts may not be the most challenging problems of #climatechange. These evolving (and rapidly spreading) disease organisms will bring another dimension to the crisis. 
Brazil is in the grips of yet another crisis: a fast-spreading virus some health officials are linking to thousands of cases of infant brain damage and 40 related deaths this year.
