    As incredible as it is to believe, NASA’s Opportunity rover is still going strong on Mars, nearly fourteen years after landing in January 2004. And now once again, it has just passed the shortest daylight time of the Martian year, the worst part of the Martian winter, with pretty clean solar panels to boot.

    L.A. begins crackdown on Hollywood Hills 'party houses'

    It’s one of the worst-kept secrets of living in the Hollywood Hills. Many of those raucous parties hosted above the glittering lights in those midcentury boxes of glass and beams are not hosted by people who actually live in the upscale canyons and hillsides.

    The evidence about Jesus is weaker than you think

    Before the European Enlightenment, virtually all New Testament experts assumed that handed-down stories about Jesus were first recorded by eye witnesses and were largely biographical. That is no longer the case. Assuming that the Jesus stories had their beginnings in one single person rather than a composite of several—or even in mythology itself—he probably was a wandering Jewish teacher in Roman-occupied Judea who offended the authorities and was executed.
