Tierra Ruffin-Pratt wants the new normal to include this current, collectively heightened sense of social consciousness relating to matters of racism and police brutality. “Blacks, whites, doesn’t matter what race you are, what ethnicity you are, what orientation you are, it just has to be a constant conversation that’s being had because it’s a constant and continual cycle that’s happening in America,” the 29-year-old Sparks guard said.

Nikola Tesla’s Grades from High School & University: A Fascinating Glimpse

In the history of science, few people got a rawer deal than Nikola Tesla. Cruelly cheated and overshadowed by Edison and Marconi (who patented the radio technology Tesla invented), the brilliant introvert didn’t stand a chance in the cutthroat business world in which his rivals moved with ease. Every biographer portrays Tesla as Edison’s perfect foil: the latter played the consummate showman and savvy patent hog, where Tesla was a reclusive mystic and, as one writer put it, “the world’s ...
