What Happened When One Guy Set Out To Follow A Snowy Owl's Path
Huffington Post - 9 months
People know surprisingly little about snowy owls -- including what sparks the iconic Arctic birds' occasional mass migrations south. That’s one of the main reasons that scientists Scott Weidensaul and David Brinker launched Project Snowstorm in 2013, when thousands of owls flew south in a movement known as an "irruption." The project tracks the travels of snowy owls using small GPS transmitters attached to the birds like little backpacks. (Don’t worry; they don’t hurt the owls.) NPR’s Adam Cole decided to take the idea even further. The video above, published Wednesday, details Cole’s journey along the route of one snowy owl, a male named Baltimore that had logged 14,000 GPS locations from Maryland to Canada. It’s a pretty wild ride. (Read Cole's entire account here.) And Weidensaul, one of Project Snowstorm’s creators, is a fan. “Obviously it's not hard, cold science, but it catches a lot of the same sense of wonder and excitement we feel as we peel back ...

Bitcoin Belongs to the People, Not the 1% Super Rich
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Bitcoin is without a doubt the best economic invention of my lifetime. Created six years ago by a person (or persons) identified as Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoin is a game changer for two important reasons. The first is its practical use. Using Bitcoin, it is possible to send and receive payments anonymously and instantly without any intermediation charges, such as storage and transaction fees by the financiers. Second, and perhaps most crucial of all, Bitcoin operates outside the interest-based financial system. In order to understand why charging interest is so injurious to society it is fundamental that we recognize its extreme power. In 1836, an American lawyer named John Whipple, made this stunning observation: "If 5 English pennies... had been... at 5 percent compounded interest from the beginning of the Christian era until [his] time, it would amount in gold of standard fineness to 32,366,648,157 spheres of gold, each eight thousand miles in diameter, or as large as the ear ...

Aircraft Carrier Group Rerouted For Possible Syria Strike
Huffington Post - over 3 years
By Andrea Shalal-Esa WASHINGTON, Sept 1 (Reuters) - The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Nimitz and other ships in its strike group are heading west toward the Red Sea to help support a limited U.S. strike on Syria, if needed, defense officials said on Sunday. The Nimitz carrier strike group, which includes four destroyers and a cruiser, has no specific orders to move to the eastern Mediterranean at this point, but is moving west in the Arabian Sea so it can do so if asked. It was not immediately clear when the ships would enter the Red Sea, but they had not arrived by Sunday evening, said one official. "It's about leveraging the assets to have them in place should the capabilities of the carrier strike group and the presence be needed," said the official. President Barack Obama on Saturday delayed imminent cruise missile strikes by five destroyers off the coast of Syria, and sought approval from ...

The loonie drops to almost two-year low on jobs data
Financial Post - over 3 years
The Canadian dollar fell to the lowest point in almost two years as stronger-than-forecast U.S. job growth prompted speculation the Federal Reserve will proceed with its plan to start winding down monetary stimulus this year. The nation’s currency weakened even as Canada lost fewer jobs than projected in June, hanging on to much of the gain of the previous month, which saw the biggest jump in a decade. U.S. job creation picked up with 195,000 positions created in June from 175,000 the month before. Economists surveyed by Bloomberg had predicted 165,000 new jobs. Fed Chairman Ben S. Bernanke said June 19 reductions in the Fed’s bond-buying program, which tends to devalue the currency, will depend on improvements in the job market.

Boobies Rock Accused Of Misleading Donors
Huffington Post - over 3 years
DENVER -- The Colorado attorney general says the man behind Boobies Rock and Say No 2 Cancer misled donors and customers around the country into thinking more of their money was going to breast cancer charities. Instead, Adam Cole Shryock only sent a little bit of money to legitimate cancer groups while using company bank accounts to buy himself a BMW, subscribe to an online dating service, and to pay bar tabs and a maid service, Attorney General John Suthers alleges in a complaint filed in Denver District Court. A phone number listed for Shryock wasn't accepting messages Tuesday. A phone message left with Say No 2 Cancer wasn't returned. Both companies sell merchandise such as shirts, bracelets and beer koozies with pro-breast or anti-cancer slogans.

Loonie tumbles to four-month low against greenback on eurozone fears
Financial Post - over 4 years
TORONTO — The Canadian dollar tumbled to a four-month low against its U.S. counterpart on Friday as investors fretted about Spain’s deteriorating finances and a possible Greek exit from the euro. The euro plumbed a 22-month low against the U.S. dollar after the president of Catalonia, Spain’s wealthiest autonomous region, said the region is running out of options for refinancing more than 13-billion euros in debt that comes due this year. “There’s a lot of uncertainty regarding Europe, and the Canadian dollar, which is largely a play off risk sentiment, is reacting accordingly,” said Mazen Issa, macro strategist at TD Securities. “With risk sentiment as bruised as it is, it’s hard to see it going the other way for the moment.” Related What would a Greek exit mean for North America?
