    Investment in energy fell again in 2017, raising fresh concerns about security and climate change

    The amount of money flowing into the energy sector fell for a third straight year in 2017, raising concerns about the world's ability to provide enough power and tackle climate change, the International Energy Agency reported Tuesday. On the whole, governments and businesses plowed $1.8 trillion into the infrastructure, equipment and resources that keep the world running. That means global energy investment fell by 2 percent from 2016 after adjusting for inflation, and the IEA warned the tr...

    Four Reasons Taxpayers Should Never Subsidize Stadiums

    Your tax dollars are being wasted, on an enormous scale, by uncompetitive socialist enterprises that ignore the basic rules of economics. I refer, of course, to the practice of politicians who give taxpayer dollars to subsidize the business of sports by paying for the construction and/or renovation of stadiums and arenas. These exercises in crony capitalism make no sense whatsoever. There has never been a decent reason to subsidize these successful businesses, which rarely produce a real return ...

    2018 Keyboards Will Not Be Used to Repair 2016, 2017 Macbook Pros

    There has been some hopeful discussion that the silicone-covered keyswitches in the 2018 MacBook Pros could filter down to 2016 and 2017 models via repair. There is some precedent for this; many customers with 2016 models have reported that Apple has replaced their keyboards with the 2017 variant.

    MPs warn that 'racist' Trump is causing mayhem for British police

    Donald Trump’s UK visit is causing “mayhem” for British police with security operations costing millions of pounds, MPs have said. Thousands of officers are being moved around the country to guard areas where the US president will make an appearance, as colleagues in their home forces have shifts extended and leave cancelled to cover their absence. Louise Haigh, Labour’s shadow policing minister, accused the government of providing “no guarantee that the additional costs required will ...

    FAA Gives the OK for Airlines to Jam You Into Dangerously Small Coach Seats

    Many of us know the moment of dread. You’ve boarded the airplane and you’re in the seat. The last passengers are still coming down the aisle. There’s an empty seat next to you. The people streaming down the aisle are of assorted sizes…pray for a slim one. But no, it has to be the unraveling 300-pound latecomer. They struggle to ram their bag in the bin. They collapse into the seat, thighs and hips barely contained, a chunky arm and an elbow spilling into your space.

    Trump Ends NATO Summit by Announcing Diplomatic Breakthrough That Did Not Happen

    By now, it is beyond cliché to say that Donald Trump approaches his presidency (and/or entire existence) as though it were a reality-television show. But like Trump’s political career itself, that analogy is forever forcing its way into one’s consciousness, no matter how tired and irritating it has become. Take Trump’s diplomacy with North Korea. The president would surely like Pyongyang to forfeit its nuclear arsenal, all things being equal. But, at the end of the day...

    Judge rules First Church of Cannabis cannot use weed as religious sacrament

    The mission of Indiana’s First Church of Cannabis to get the state to recognize a religious exemption to the state’s marijuana laws appears to have gone up in smoke, at least for now.

The church’s officials filed a lawsuit against the state in 2015, just days after becoming a recognized church in the state, saying that Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act...

A shock rise in the gas in recent years was revealed by atmospheric scientists in May, but they co...

    I was a young student in college when I first decided not to eat any animal products. It came from a well-intentioned place—I had educated myself on factory farming, CAFOS (or concentrated animal feeding operations, where animals live in deplorable conditions), and the damage that eating animals caused our health and environment. I thought I knew it all. I was going to tell anyone who would listen about how being a vegan was better than what they were doing.
