Adventuring alone sounds exciting, but it’s also scary. Like most people, I’ve done the majority of my travelling with friends and family. That is, until I realised that I had places I wanted to go and no one wanted to go with me. I struck out on my own because my desire to continue travelling was greater than my fear of being alone.

Even Einstein took a “why not both?” approach to tackling the wave and particle behaviors of light. One thing Einstein did not reconcile was particle superposition. Quantum superpositioning is the theory that subatomic particles have the … Continue reading

Over the weekend, reddit users posting on the subreddit /r/cordcutters were surprised to find that some of Sling TV’s most recent channel additions—A&E, Lifetime, Lifetime Movie Network (LMN), and WE TV—were not entirely available. Shows like Criminal Minds on A&E, Kept Woman on Lifetime, and Intervention on LMN were throwing up a “Restricted Content” notice, sometimes for eight- and ten-hour blocks.
The new channels are not part of Sling TV’s basic, $20 per month package, but require users to pay an extra $5 per month for the Lifestyle Extra package.
“Due to rights restrictions, this content can not be streamed on Sling TV,” the notice tells Sling TV users.

Opposition to Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which was signed into law by Indiana Governor Mike Pence last week, has been particularly strong among the tech and hobbyist sectors, and that opposition grew even louder thanks to a letter written by Apple CEO Tim Cook.
His Sunday op-ed, printed in the Washington Post on Sunday, didn’t mince words, describing Indiana’s new bill—and similar bills around the nation, including a few that have yet to be signed into law—as “dangerous” means of enabling discrimination.

As a child, I was baptized in a Baptist church, and faith has always been an important part of my life. I was never taught, nor do I believe, that religion should be used as an excuse to discriminate.”
