The Daily Word in The Presidential Debate, Bionic Yarn and Mars Colonization

By Monica Schmitt [ Tue Sep 27 2016 10:53 AM ]
The Daily Word

One short list of falsehoods from the Clinton-Trump debate, and one much longer analysis.
And in case you missed the debate and are interested, here's a link.

Speaking of debates, here's one way to settle them.

Have a strong opinion about the presidential candidates? Today is National Voter Registration day, so make sure you register and go vote on Nov. 8!

Say hello to recycled polyester, otherwise known as Bionic Yarn, a clothing material made from used plastics. Optimistically speaking, this could make a huge positive impact on the atrocious amount of plastics currently floating in the oceans.

To be happy is to be healthy. And it's contagious.

Nearly 300 tech firms across the country are declaring Nov. 8, election day, a paid company holiday.

Elon Musk speaks at the International Astronautical Congress in Mexico about his plan to colonize Mars. Watch the talk live here.

In an analysis of revolutionaries vs reactionaries in modern American history, opinion writer David Brooks states, “It doesn't matter how much living standards rise or the poverty rate falls, it makes you seem smart and woke to be alarmed and hypercritical.” Read the article for more thoughtful insights about our strange yearning for an idealized past, and why “it's stupid and impossible to turn back the clock.”

The Daily Word in Shrinking Ice Caps, Jim Carrey and Eating Off The Floor

By Monica Schmitt [ Tue Sep 20 2016 11:18 AM ]
The Daily Word

Arctic sea ice is melting, and is currently at the second-lowest on record.

The number of smokers in England is at a record low, with just around 17% of adults lighting up.

Obama gives his very last address to the United Nations.

Hate to break it to you, but the 5-second-rule is a myth.

Mark Burton wrongfully files lawsuit against Jim Carrey claiming the actor supplied his girlfriend with prescription drugs that she used to commit suicide.


Gas prices spike as a result of a 330,000-gallon pipeline spill in Alabama.

Professors at New Mexico Tech are working to recreate the explosion that injured dozens in New York's Chelsea neighborhood.

Since trending news is generally depressing and the Internet probably won't put a halt to the constant headlines any time soon, here is a virtual bioluminescent forest for at least some temporary relaxation.
