The Fox That Plays Golfs

An angry fellow writes to tell me he is an expert on digging dogs and knows all about sheep and fox. Except it seems he lives in an east coast state about three hours away and he has never even *seen* a sheep in that state. Really? Okay. Cool. I will accept he is an expert in working terriers and all other things. Who knows,  he might be.  Never heard of the guy before, but the "stars" on the cover of the supermarket tabloids are a complete mystery to m...

Fable hopes to make disability-inclusive design easier by providing testing and development assistance from disabled folks on-demand, and has raised a $1.5M seed round to do it. “The person who experiences this problem is usually the best one to solve it,” Alwar Pillai, co...

The Matchup will change the way you get sports news

Almost two years ago, our friends at Google challenged the Local Media Consortium (LMC) to come up with a “moonshot”—a project that would be big and game-changing and maybe even a little outside our comfort zone. Gathered in a conference room in New York, a dozen of us pitched 100 ideas, but only one was compelling enough to hold on for two years of planning and negotiation.  That idea, which had the pet name “Sportsball” for most of its infancy, is now launching as The Matchup, with the...

Western Bumblebee Population Drops Up To 93% Over the Last 20 Years

The western bumblebee is one of around 30 bumblebee species in the western U.S. and Canada.
