New cross-country system to take heavily worn winter storm path

Meteorologists are closely monitoring yet another cross-country snowstorm on the way. Even though it will take a jog southward over the Rockies, the storm will then trek northward and aim at the Upper Midwest, just as many storms have done so far this winter.The weather pattern feels like the movie "Groundhog Day" as Mother Nature seems to be exercising from muscle memory, according to forecasters, and that will start, in this case, with the storm rolling into the Pacific Northwest coastline."Th...

‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Review: An Exhausting Video Game Adaptation With an Identity Crisis

Who is Sonic the Hedgehog for? What is the target audience for a film that wants to take its cues from Deadpool but also family films about the Easter Bunny? Ostensibly, children should want very badly to see this movie adaptation of the long-running Sega video game about an extremely fast blue animal. But Sonic the Hedgehog can’t figure out if its audience is the parents of those children — those of us who grew up with the first iteration of Sonic — or kids themselves. The result is...

Most endangered plants in the US

A rose by any other name may smell just as sweet, but what about a blackspore spillwort? Or cabbage on a stick? Do you even know what cabbage on a stick is supposed to smell like?

In pursuing NetCredit’s research on the most endangered plants in every state, you’ll not only notice the plant names are absolutely fantastic, you’ll also see how human ...

New study estimates U.S. climate migrations

Climate migrations are already happening across the world, although not always talked about in those words and often having more to do with droughts and famine.

Bistra Dilkina, a computer scientist at the University of Southern California, led a study to try and predict how sea level rise might drive U.S. migration patte...

At the time, she was managing the kitchen at Blue Bottle coffee shop in New York City after leaving a career in book publishing.

Biologists recommend urgent action to protect California spotted owls

In the Pacific Northwest, the range expansion of barred owls has contributed to a conservation crisis for northern spotted owls, which are being displaced from their habitat. How will this interaction play out in the Sierra Nevada, where barred owls are starting to move into the range of the California spotted owl? New research suggests that wildlife managers may still be able to head off similar problems in the Golden State -- if they act now.
