Florida’s nuclear plants have outlasted hurricanes before, but Irma may be a bigger test

The only thing that separates Florida’s Turkey Point nuclear plant from the ocean is a thin squiggle of land that doesn’t seem to offer much protection. There’s a reason the place is so close to the water. Such plants need loads of H2O for constant cooling. But that need also means that, periodically, you’ll come across a story about a potentially catastrophic storm whirling toward Turkey Point’s nuclear facilities. Turkey Point and its northern neighbor at St. Lucie, which is also perched precariously on a thin spit of land, have survived frightening hurricanes before. However, the storm currently blitzing toward Florida has the potential to be unlike any those facilities have seen. Read more…More about Science, Science, and Climate Environment

Incredibly pragmatic dog braves Hurricane Harvey with, yes, an entire bag of dog food

A dog named Otis wasn’t about to go hungry during Hurricane Harvey.  As the hurricane made landfall, a dog was spotted wandering around Sinton, Texas carrying a full bag of dog food.  The German shepherd mix wasn’t a stray—he just got loose from a screen porch.  “I kept yelling his name and yelling his name and he wasn’t around,” his caretaker Salvador Segovia told the Houston Chronicle.  The dog belongs to Segovia’s 5-year-old grandson, who had evacuated in anticipation of flooding. Otis is well-known in the town of 6,000, Segovia said. “Otis can go to Dairy Queen and he can get a hamburger. He’s the only dog allowed to lie down in front of the county court house,” Segovia said. “He also goes to H.E.B. He’s not a stray. He’s a good dog.” Read more…More about Dogs, Hurricane Harvey, Culture, and Animals

Tom Cruise’s fake butt is the internet’s newest conspiracy theory

Anyone remember the 2008 film Valkyrie, starring Tom Cruise?  Probably not a question you expected to be asked today of all days…in 2017. But the film, which takes place during World War II, has made it’s way back into the cultural dialogue — and not because of anything happening in politics. No, no. It has everything to do with Tom Cruise’s booty in a single shot of the film.  Intrigued? We thought so.  SEE ALSO: ‘Mission: Impossible 6’ shoot faces significant delay while Tom Cruise recovers from stunt injury So, here it is.

Drone captures travel blogger’s hectic brush with a great white shark

It’s one thing to hope to catch a glimpse of shark while on vacation, but it’s another to be stalked by one. Ask French blogger behind “Travelling with Isa,” Isabelle Fabre.  It seems like she found herself being shadowed by a great white shark while kitesurfing off Fitzgerald River National Park on the Western Australian coast. The footage captured on video by drone and posted on Facebook on Jan. 9. “As usual, I was first thinking that it was my kite shadow… but no. Then I thought it was a dolphin trick. You know, when they spring out just in front of you! But no,” Fabre explained in French. Read more…More about Blogger, Isabella Fabre, Drone, Video, and Videos

5 things left unsaid between us and our building’s super in 2016

We’ll say it: it’s hard to be young. The hardest part of being young but trying to be an adult? Interacting with your super in order to make the apartment you’re privileged enough to have work properly.  Ken, our super, has been nothing but kind, but sometimes the thought of having to call him up isn’t worth getting the problem solved. We’ll do almost anything to avoid a social interaction, even if that means leaving things unsaid between us and Ken (and putting our lives at risk by having no heat or locks on our windows).

35 tons of dead fish suddenly wash up in a lake in China

Authorities are still scratching their heads over what killed 35 tonnes of fish all of a sudden, which washed up in a frightful sight in south China this week. The fish floated to the surface of the Hongcheng lake, located in the Hainan island, China’s southernmost point. The government is investigating the cause of their death, but experts speculate that it might be due to fluctuations in the water’s saline levels, reports China Daily.
