Why we like a good robot story

Jim and Kerry Kelly live in a small town in the rural Midwest. Their sons, Ben, six, and Ryan, twelve, attend the local public school. Their school district is always short staffed. The closest town is 40 miles away and the pay for teachers is abysmal.This year, the district’s staffing has hit a critical low: Class size will have to be huge, and there’s limited money for aides who might help with the teaching load, which will further discourage teacher applications. The school board considers ac...

Breaking: Bernie Sanders Withdraws From 2020 Presidential Race

Sanders stands at a podium looking well-adjusted and completely cognizant. U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- In news shocking only to those with a memory shorter than four years, Vermont senator and unabashed socialist, Bernie Sanders has just officially withdrawn from the 2020 presidential race. The news comes after rumors of the Senator's failing health and establishes former Obama administration Vice President Joe Biden as the forerunner. Second Amendment supporters can rest a little easier, knowing ...

Nikon P-223 3×32 Scope – A Budget ACOG? ~ VIDEO

  U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- In life, you can never be too good looking, too rich or have too much ammunition – but you can definitely have too much magnification. Which seems counter-intuitive; how could making your target clearer and larger be bad? Ask any deer hunter how hard it is to find a target in a 12 power scope from a stand that’s starting to move. It’s like playing Where’s Waldo with your face six inches from the page – you might get lucky, but you’re more likely to get lost. The ...

"The incredible true story of two brothers raised on the hardscrabble country music of rural West Texas who dropped out, tuned in, found God, and helped launch the seventies soft-rock revolution."

I am not a soft-rock fan, and I've even gone out of my way to scoff at "Summer Breeze," but I loved this Texas Monthly article "The Secret Oil Patch Roots of ‘Summer Breeze.'"Excerpt:When Jim [Seals] was four, the family moved to Iraan, a recently founded boomtown. [The father] Wayland worked for Shell—first as a roustabout, digging ditches, and then as a pipeliner—and he and his family lived in a modest company house surrounded by derricks that stood like trees in a forest...Wayland was an old-...

‘The Office’ Executive Producers Developing New Comedy Series Inspired By Working from Home During Coronavirus

Right now, everyone is looking for some kind of reprieve from being locked up at home due to the spread of the coronavirus across the United States. That doesn’t appear to be in the cards anytime soon, but The Office executive producers Paul Lieberstein and Ben Silverman think they’ve figured out a way to make light of the situation by crafting a new workplace comedy series inspired by the sudden rise in employees working from home due to the outbreak of coronavirus forcing people to practice s...

Audible has the first Harry Potter audiobook (as read by Stephen Fry!) streaming for free right now

If you’ve ever tried to buy the Harry Potter audiobooks, you probably noticed something kind of tricky: there are two very different versions. The version most widely available in the U.S. is narrated by Jim Dale. The U.K. version is read by Stephen Fry. Which is better? I won’t get into that — that’s something the internet has been arguing about for a decade+ now. I will say, however, that getting the Stephen Fry versions in the U.S. (legally) is usually a pretty big pain in the butt. Different...

Flat Out: Jillian Deschenes’ Royal Enfield flat tracker

Minnesota native Jillian Deschenes is not a pro custom motorcycle builder: from Monday to Friday, she’s a hospice nurse in the suburbs of Minneapolis. But on the weekends she’s a flat track racer—and a fierce one, too. In just her second year of racing, Jillian’s already the number one plate holder in the women’s class in her AMA District. Her success piqued the interest of Royal Enfield, who invited her to test out their Himalayan-based flat tracker—the FT411. Jillian’s affable nature lef...

Phantom Stranger v2 #11 - Neal Adams cover

Neal Adams Phantom Stranger v2 #11, 1971 - Grabbed by the image of an ancient Egyptian statue, a woman struggles helplessly as she's pulled into a purple void. The layout is among Neal Adams' weakest, allowing the least defined area to serve as the focal point. The headlines appears to be placed at the last minute, avoiding a lull in the negative space. Other artists in this issue include Jim [Author: Ted Ignacio]

Physician burnout is a patient safety issue

He was supposed to be the first patient of the day — not the last. He started as a “no-show” on an already overbooked afternoon office schedule.

Whicker: Jim Wynn Cannon-ized pitchers throughout the National League

Jim Wynn was ahead of his time, even when he was out of place. A home-run hitter in Houston’s Astrodome, at least in its old configuration, was like a fisherman in the Mojave. Put a 5-foot-9 guy in the batter’s box, surround him with guys who hit soft singles when they hit at all, and Wynn has to be recognized as one of the unlikeliest power sources in baseball history. Wynn had 291 home runs, most of them executed from the heels. In 1967, Wynn had 37. Some modern analysts project that as a 50-h...
