Saklatvala Mausoleum in New York

An email from my friend Kersi Shroff tipped me off on what turned out to be a great treasure hunt in search of the Saklatvala Mausoleum in the Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx in New York City.

Australia Gun Culture Part 8: Brucellosis Risk for Pig Hunters and Dogs

By Dean Weingarten Feral Pigs Dean Weingarten Arizona -( Feral pigs in Australia are a serious pest. They destroy habitat and native species, and inflict large amounts of damage on crops.

On the batting h-index

Kartikeya Date has written a post applying the h-index, originally designed as a measure of academics' research impact, to batsmen.

And he’s 5’10” and 245 pounds – which means he is classed as obese. In an effort to lose weight, Nash uses an app to record the calories he consumes and a Fitbit band to track the energy he expends. These tools bring an apparent precision: Nash can quantify the calories in each cracker crunched and stair climbed. But...
