We've now found microplastics on the very highest and lowest points on Earth. Mount Everest is littered with them.

Members of the National Geographic and Rolex Perpetual Planet Everest Expedition celebrate after setting up a weather station 27,650 feet up Mount Everest. Mark Fisher/National Geographic Every part of the climbing route up Mount Everest is littered with microplastics, researchers found. They even found plastic fibers just below the summit — at 27,690 feet above sea level — according to a new study. The fibers likely came off climbing gear, clothing, and tents. Microplastics have also been...

Wine, lots of wine, and sweets and pizza and very little sleep got election watchers through the night and ready for a long day. “It was wine and cake for me,” said Samanaz Kapadia of Hawthorne. “I woke up around 2:30 and checked then again at 6. There was a lot of disbelief last night, but today I’ve looked at the math and I am hopeful.” There are a lot of bleary-eyed people at work Wednesday, Nov. 4 in Southern California. They stayed up late staring at the network television “big boards,” doi...

1 infected camper likely led to 115 coronavirus cases at an overnight camp where people didn't have to wear masks or social distance

Vladimir Servan / Getty Images 76% of campers and staffers at a faith-based retreat for high school boys in Wisconsin came down with COVID-19 after a single camper developed symptoms.  The camp implemented some mitigation strategies, like requiring the 152 attendees to quarantine at home for a week before travel, but didn't require mask wearing or social distancing.  Attendees who didn't contract COVID-19 had tested positive for antibodies prior to arrival, providing evidence of their pot...

Is There A Google-Free Future For Firefox?

Bizarre performance of The Del Rubio Triplets on the New Monkees (1987)

Remember the Del Rubio Triplets? The three sisters who played guitars, dressed alike and wore too-short dresses…? You probably recognize their campy act from eighties shows like Pee-wee's Playhouse ("These Boots are Made for Walking" and "Winter Wonderland"), Full House ("Whip it!"), and Golden Girls ("Neutron Dance"). However, Milly, Eadie, and Elena didn't start performing in the eighties, their career was actually 50+ years long. In fact, one of their first performances was on a Bob H...

Hannah Lebovits, her husband and two young children live in a county in Texas that has not been as hard-hit by COVID-19 as neighboring Dallas has been.

BIPOC summer camps

Most summers, millions of US children head off to spend a week, a month, or the whole summer attending camp, where they’ll enjoy the restorative power of nature, learn new skills, strengthen friendships, and hopefully build upon a lifelong relationship with the outdoors. The problem is, these camps are not representative of the country as a whole. “Only about four percent of campers in America identify as Black or African-American, even though we make up 13 to 14 percent of the population,” ...

Swiss scientists grew mini Neanderthal brains in petri dishes

Researchers at the Institute of Molecular and Clinical Ophthalmology in Basel, Switzerland have attempted to isolate the Neanderthal DNA from certain human stem cells.

Their research, titled "Human Stem Cell Resources Are an Inroad to Neandertal DNA Functions," was published on June 18, 2020, and began with...

California Showcase has become a showpiece for young football players

The eighth annual California Showcase combine, a one-day free event, was held Saturday at the vast Great Park of Orange County in Irvine – the site of the former El Toro Marine Corps Air Station.

How to raft the Owyhee River

Unlike many rafting trips that start with epic views of a big mountain objective, the put-in on the Owyhee River is unassuming. The start of this classic excursion lies at a small, grassy landing at the end of a dirt road near a tiny speck of a town called Rome in eastern Oregon. This Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land has more open-range cows than humans — but don’t let this fool you. The Owyhee, not far from the border with neighboring Idaho, is one of the best-kept secrets in the country...

How a curious VC found Uber before anyone else and helped net his firm a stake that's now worth $2.5 billion

On July 4 2010, Rob Hayes' family was not happy with him. He spent too much of the holiday on his phone, trying to organize an investment in a new, unproven startup. Hayes had learned about Uber a few months earlier when he saw a tweet about it from Garrett Camp. Camp founded Uber; he also ran StumbleUpon and sold it to eBay. Hayes' firm First Round Capital (FRC) had backed StumbleUpon. Hayes emailed Camp to ask what Uber was. Uber, Camp told him, was a startup that promised to solve transpo...

What is Camp? When the “Good Taste of Bad Taste” Becomes an Aesthetic

Even if you don't care about high fashion or high society — to the extent that those two things have a place in the current culture — you probably glimpsed some of the coverage of what attendees wore to the Met Gala earlier this month. Or perhaps coverage isn't strong enough a word: what most of the many observers of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute annual fundraising gala did certainly qualified as analysis, and in not a few cases tipped over into exegesis. That enthus...
