TechDirt: Moral Panics And How ‘The Kids These Days’ Adapt.
Mashable: 2 black bears cozied up to a hiker but she just wasn’t having it.
“Don’t be scared.” She *should* have scared it. It needs to stay away from humans. Bears need roughly 20,000 calories to fatten for winter, and this is prime bear time. For god’s sake, don’t offer it food or drink. The result of this encounter, for this bear ... means being put down.
Colossal: Journalist Traverses India to Document Subterranean Stepwells Before they Disappear.
Surprised these haven’t appeared in any Bond or other adventure films.
A Continuous Lean.: Escape to Maine II.
Wish we had antique shops like this.
Archaeology News Network: Pharaonic mummy gets facial reconstruction surgery.
This facial reconstruction stuff ... I don’t know. This guy looks like he was the Royal lemon-sucker. I’d send the specs out to more than one outfit, and correlate the results.
Atlantic: The 2015 Interest-Rate Hike Watch - Jackson Hole Edition.
In which the Atlantic dances around and tells us nothing new.
Youtube: Longmire - Season 4. New trailer.
September 10. Can’t wait.
NY Times: The Problem With G.O.P. Plans to Sell Health Insurance Across State Lines.
Read the comments. The exchanges set their networks up very fast; this article makes it sound onerous.
Mashable: NASA flies you past Pluto in new animation.
Neat. I wonder if the ‘wobble’ on approach is the various thruster operations required to stay on target?
Archaeology News Network: FBI warns collectors about ISIS-smuggled antiquities.

Autoweek: Mark Webber sides with former F1 teammate Sebastian Vettel in Pirelli spat.
AppleInsider: ‘KeyRaider’ malware harvests 225,000 Apple IDs from jailbroken iOS devices.
Lifehacker: Moleskine Unveils New Notebooks Designed for Productivity and Organization.
Moleskine has, without my intention, become part of my brand. If I don’t show up with my little black book, clients ask if I forgot it.
TG’s Political Wire: Trump Continues War Against GOP Establishment.
Well, the positive thing is he’s bodily shoving the GOP around. Maybe he can do something about the preponderance of beehive hairdos at conventions.
DesignYouTrust: The Truth Is Somewhere Upside Down.
Autoweek: Smart ForTwo goes topless for the Frankfurt motor show.
Kelby: Desert Fashion Shoot (with behind the scenes pics and video).
You can have all the equipment in the world, but without people, you’re lost. Notice, in a windy location, there’s one live person for every lightstand. In spite of sandbags. You can’t risk anyone (esp. a model) getting hit in the head.
Mischiefs of Faction: Trump, Biden and The Politics of Consumption.
The Atlantic: Even Though it Has $50 Billion of Oil Money, Alaska Can’t Pay Its Bills.
Was going to tease that Alaska might be able to purchase Greece - but Greece’s debts are at least 6x the Alaskan nest egg.
Valet/Fall 2015 Buying Planner: Chukkas.
Guernica: Fukushima and Beyond.
“There seems to be no way that deep nuclear disarmament can occur as a result of international diplomacy without a parallel process that involves phasing out the nuclear energy option for all countries.”
Medium: Stock photos that don’t suck.
Not One-Off Britishisms: “Stroppy”.
Perhaps I should rename the blog.
