When You Have Wanderlust, Heres How To Survive A Long Plane Ride

By Mesut Kaya These frequent flyers from Ask Reddit have some tips for you! By Mesut Kaya 1. Once you’re in the air, loosen your shoe laces. Don’t, I repeat, don’t be one of those people who takes their shoes off and sticks their bare feet on the armrest of the chair in front of you, but you should be aware that the lower air pressure will cause your feet to swell. Loosening your shoelaces will help you deal with this, although some people wear compression socks. 2. Get hard sweets. The sucking motion stops you from getting sore ears. 3. Download an entire TV series and binge watch it all, you have loads of time so you can watch …

Americans Trust Scientists, Until Politics Gets in the Way

Nothing’s more American than a science-hero—an indomitable, big-brained hasher-out of ideas that change the world, that make the impossible possible. At least since Ben Franklin sat with the founders, and certainly since Vannevar Bush explicitly connected the US’ future to federal funding of science after World War II, the idea of sciencing the shit out of everything has been core to the American character. Like many surveys and studies before it, a new report from the Pew Research Center confirms this truth: Americans love and trust scientists. In 2019, 86 percent of Americans said they had a great deal or a fair amount of confidence in them—up 3 percent from the year before. That’s higher than confidence in the military …

How White Nationalists Have Co-Opted Fan Fiction

During a recent summer stroll near an Ivy League campus, I happened on an SUV with a decal on its rear window that read “The University of Rhodesia.” The University of Rhodesia no longer exists, but it was located in Rhodesia, a self-declared state in southern Africa from 1965 to 1979 (the area now known as Zimbabwe). An independent state successor to the British colony of Southern Rhodesia, it was named after the British imperialist Cecil Rhodes. In recent years, Rhodesian iconography has gained popularity among young men with white nationalist leanings. Infatuation with Rhodesia first received media attention after it was discovered that Dylann Roof—the white supremacist who killed 9 black churchgoers in 2015—had a personal website called “Last …

Marianne Williamson: the ‘leftwing Trump’ preaching the Politics of Love

As 20 candidates prepare for todays second Democratic presidential debate, Stefanie Marsh meets the celebrity self-help guru accused of being a dangerous wacko who just wants the United States to harness love The left-wing version of Marianne Williamson was written off as a joke until last month when, almost 30 minutes into the televised Democratic debate, as if emerging from a pupa of deep meditation, she calmly blindsided Joe Biden, Tony Robbins or Laura Dern in her 20s, Williamson had transformed herself into Hollywoods spiritual darling by her mid-30s. Shes unique among the Democratic candidates in having been both Oprah Winfreys spiritual adviser and the officiator at Elizabeth Taylors eighth and final wedding at Neverland (where Michael Jackson was best …

Female “Viking” Warrior May Have Been A Slavic Migrant

The grave of a person archaeologists have identified as a female Viking warrior may actually be a Slavic migrant from an area in today’s Poland, new research suggests. The skeleton lies alongside an axe in a Viking cemetery on the island of Langeland, Denmark, and was rediscovered years ago – but until now, no one has paid attention to the heritage of the weapon, says Leszek Gardeła, an archaeologist and Viking age specialist from the Department of Scandinavian Languages and Literatures at the University of Bonn, Switzerland. “So far, no one has paid any attention to the fact that the axe in the grave comes from the area of the southern Baltic, possibly today’s Poland,” Gardeła told Science In Poland.

This Is What Happened When I Cut Out Sugar Betches

Pregnancy makes your body change in really weird ways. Huh. The more you know. You may suddenly crave things you’ve avoided for years, like Flamin’ Hot Cheetos (ily) or German potato salad (ily most of all). Disturbingly, you may also suddenly NOT crave things you’ve been literally addicted to for most of your adult life. This isn’t an essay where I detail how I got off hard drugs once I became pregnant. I’ve never been cool enough for hard drugs, anyway, much to my 5th grade D.A.R.E. officer’s pleasure. No; this is about how I unknowingly unhooked myself from sugar, thanks to the fetal slug growing inside of me. Turns out pregnancy is good for something! When you go from …

More than 200 reindeer found dead in Norway, starved by climate change

The findings from the scientists’ 10-week investigation were grim: Reindeer population numbers were down, and the individual animals were much thinner than they should have been. And hundreds of reindeer carcasses showed signs of starvation, Norway’s national news outlet, NRK, reported on July 27. [6 Surprising Facts About Reindeer] “It’s scary to find so many dead animals,” Åshild Ønvik Pedersen, an NPI terrestrial ecologist, told NRK. Reindeer in Svalbard are a subspecies, Rangifer tarandus platyrhynchus, and they are short-legged, with endearingly small, rounded heads. Males are slightly larger than females, measuring about 5 feet (1.6 meters) long and weighing up to 198 lbs. (90 kilograms), according to NPI. Climate change is bringing warmer temperatures to Svalbard, which means more precipitation. And heavy rainfall in December …

Trump Reelection Campaign Rakes In Nearly $500,000 Selling Plastic Straws

Donald Trump’s reelection campaign has made nearly half a million dollars selling red plastic straws emblazoned with his name, his base apparently lapping up the new merch. “Can’t wait to see the pictures of Trump supporters drinking with them,” he wrote. According to The idea, the outlet said, came to Parscale when he was on a flight to Florida sipping ice tea through a paper straw when it tore in two. “This is exactly what they would do to the economy as well. Squeeze it until it doesn’t work.” Still in the air, Parscale sent his staff an email titled “Making straws great again,” proposing they become part of the Trump brand, Politico reported. When Parscale’s plane landed, the straws …

NYPD beekeepers work to save bees as US government seemingly tells the insects to buzz off

Officer Michael Lauriano, pictured here on the roof of the 104th NYPD Precinct in Queens, says he and Officer Darren Mays are similar to “bee whisperers.” “These calls can come pretty much 24 hours a day,” Lauriano, who’s assigned to the 1st Precinct, told Fox News from the 104th Precinct in Queens, where two hives — one with more than an estimated 40,000 bees — are located on the roof. The infamous swarms that appear in the city are most likely from the hives of amateur beekeepers “who mismanaged it,” Mays, of the 104th Precinct, said.
