3 Mountain Lions Killed in Arizona After They Were Found Eating Human Remains

(TUCSON, Ariz.) — Three mountain lions found feeding on human remains near a popular Tucson hiking trail have been killed, Arizona authorities said Wednesday. They were not suspected of killing the person, but were determined to be a danger to the public because they showed no fear of officers trying to remove the remains, the Arizona Game and Fish Department said in a statement, according to the Arizona Daily Star. The area in the Coronado National Forest was closed for a day while officials at...

Review: Women’s Patagonia Capilene Air Hoody

Sometimes you find a piece of gear that just works. The comfort, function, style, fit… all the important elements blend together so well that you aren’t entirely sure how you managed to get along before it entered your life. These items must be categorized as great gear, not just good gear. I’ve worked with plenty of good gear in my life, but the Capilene Air Hoody by Patagonia is in a class of its own. It keeps me warm, it breathes effortlessly, it is stylish and comfortable and beautifully tho...

Week 7: Desert Attacks in Tucson (+ stunning cactus scenery)

“Shh Savannah. Listen to that” She was incessantly talking again and I couldn’t quite make it out. It was a weird mixture of howling and yelping and we’d heard a similar sound earlier in the trail but had no idea what it was. “I think that might be a coyote. How cool is that? Keep an eye out for it Savannah” We kept walking. Craig and Kalyra were no match for my long legs and had fallen behind. Savannah always wanting to be by my side manages to keep up. We were on the switchbacks determined to...

Empirical SCOTUS: Breadcrumbs in a new term

On November 6, the Supreme Court released its first signed majority opinion of the term, written by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. This is Ginsburg’s third consecutive term as author of the court’s first signed majority opinion. In a concise unanimous decision (8-0 because Justice Brett Kavanaugh did not participate), the court in Mount Lemmon Fire District v. Guido held that coverage under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act protects government employees in organizations of all sizes. With t...

Argument analysis: “A strange statute that was written in a strange way”

In the second oral argument of the new term, the justices did not seem to display any of the fractiousness that can sometimes characterize the court’s more high-profile cases. An observer who had nothing to go on except the back-and-forth in Mount Lemmon Fire District v. Guido would probably find it difficult to sort the justices according to their judicial philosophies or liberal or conservative leanings. The question in Mount Lemmon is whether the Age Discrimination in Employment Act applies t...

RV Trip: Tucson, Day 2

Pretty much a work day today as temperatures rose into the high 70s once again.Woke up just before the alarm went off and made breakfast while keeping an eye on the sunrise over Tucson. Rest of the day was spent on work, resoldering the starter switch on Scarlett since the connection had become sporadic again, some minor work on the RV and routing maintenance.I decided not to do much extensive riding towards either the Pima Air and Space Museum or Mount Lemmon on the NE side of Tucson.  Per...
