A Swell Buoy

Utahn Michael Ruzek began tracking Buoy 51101, a weather buoy moored far off the north shore of Kauai, over a decade ago. He observed that when swells cause 51101 to start climbing—activity he’s dubbed a “buoy pop”—Utah’s Wasatch Mountain Range almost always receives a snowstorm two weeks later. At first, Ruzek kept this intel to himself. But, before long, friends encouraged him to go public. Now, more than 13,000 Instagram and 8,000 Facebook followers later, savvy powder hounds from around the ...

Facebook Threatens To Pull Out of Europe If It Doesn't Get Its Way

Facebook has threatened to pack up its toys and go home if European regulators don't back down and let the social network get its own way. From a report: In a court filing in Dublin, Facebook said that a decision by Ireland's Data Protection Commission (DPC) would force the company to pull up stakes and leave the 410 million people who use Facebook and photo-sharing service Instagram in the lurch. If the decision is upheld, "it is not clear to [Facebook] how, in those circumstances, it could con...

I’m glad I have a lot of photos so I can keep my blog going. I’m not even sure of the year of most of them. Autumn in the Luxembourg Garden. A pretty door knocker. Bread ready for customers in a Paris restaurant. The covered walkways in Place des Vosges. A look in a mirror of, I think, Hotel de Ville, the seat of the government of Paris.
