FACEBOOK’S BOTS ARE OUT OF CONTROL SUSPENDING PEOPLE EN MASS DURING A PANDEMIC CUTTING YOU OFF FROM FAMILY AND FRIENDS!

Last week I started noticing some people on Instagram posting about being suspended on Facebook with screenshots of them joking around between friends and getting suspended. The comments were over nothing worth getting suspended over and people were freaking out. I wrote it off as a bug since Facebook had recently told everyone their posts were taken down in another bug system-wide. I, like everyone, got about 4 notices saying my posts had been taken down. After everyone screamed about it Faceb...

Unreal photos of foggy streets dreamily illuminated with stoplights

Photographer Lucas Zimmerman captured these dreamy long-exposure shots on foggy streets near Weimar, Germany. He followed up on the original 2013 series a few years later with Traffic Lights 2.0. "...Photography shows us things we otherwise overlook, such as a simple traffic light on the street," Zimmerman says. "An all-known object, which produces a strong effect in an unnatural situation with a simple photographic setup." (via Kottke)

Impressions: 1. Sunrise, and... 2. A few minutes on the car radio with Morning Joe.

The sunrise at 6:59 (20 minutes after the "actual sunrise") time: And here's my impression of what I heard on Morning Joe, somewhere between 7 and 7:10 (Central Time). Trump must be criticized, so they have to pick a way to criticize him. What Joe has picked is that Trump failed to heed the advice of the experts until recently. We really were facing a pandemic with a million plus Americans dead, and the economy absolutely did need to be shut down, and Trump should have done it sooner. Now, he's...

Does Hand Cream Stop Hand Sanitizer From Working? We Asked the Pros

We've all been washing our hands and slathering on more hand sanitizer than we ever thought possible. And while we should absolutely still continue practicing good hand hygiene, we also need to take care of our dry and irritated hands. Thankfully, there are plenty of hand creams out there to soothe sore skin. But with all of the talk of obsessive washing, it got our editors wondering: could using hand cream immediately after using hand sanitizer alter the gel's ability to effectively kill bact...

Easter Dogwood Images for You

I photographed some dogwood blooms on at a local park on our last day before Georgia’s shelter-at-home took effect. When I uploaded the images to Lightroom at home, I rediscovered a batch of dogwood images I took in 2014 and added text for Easter. Honestly, I don’t remember what I did with them then, but I want to make them available to you now to use as a screensaver this week to remember what it represents. Dogwood blooms represent a beautiful, visual reminder of the crucifixion. Many of us a...

The air temperature was 35°, and I don't know what the water temperature was, but he'd clambered out onto a rock, and he slipped and splashed all the way in. Don't worry. He got out. And he didn't even say, "I'm cold." It's Wisconsin! And the Wisconsin thing to say when you fall into an ice-cold lake is, I can report: "That rock was slippery."
