Meteor Blast Over Bering Sea Was 10 Times Size of Hiroshima (slashdot)

A meteor explosion over the Bering Sea late last year unleashed 10 times as much energy as the atomic bomb that destroyed Hiroshima, scientists have revealed.

Desert Island Delights at the RCM: Offenbach's Robinson Crusoe

‘Britannia waives the rules: The EU Brexit in quotes’. Such was the headline of a BBC News feature on 28th June 2016.

Culture’s race war: 'Blackness is something to consume but not engage with'

From Dave to Green Book, artists and the art they create are too often critiqued for being ‘too black’ or ‘not black enough’Last month, the UK rapper Dave released his latest single, Black. Sparse but affecting, and largely threaded around a few minor piano chords and a drum beat, it saw the south Londoner dissect facets of black identity through lines such as “Black is my Ghanaian brother reading into scriptures / Doing research on his lineage, finding out that he’s Egyptian” and “Black ain’t j...

20% of gamblers attempt suicide — why don't we take the addiction more seriously?

Gambling addiction has been shown to have the same pharmacological effects as opiates. Eighty-five percent of all gambling revenue comes from slot machines. Casinos are designed to disorient and confuse patrons, from the lighting and carpeting to the key of machine sounds. None The smell is the first assault even though the triggers for sensory overload occur concurrently. That is by design.

Woman on a 20,000-mile trek

Karen Penny had better have packed a decent pair of boots and a reserve of blister-protection bandages, because she is on a four-year, 20,000-mile trek around the coastline of the UK and Ireland.
