Blue gems in teeth illuminate women's hidden role in medieval manuscripts - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
The discovery of semi-precious gems in the teeth of a 1,000-year-old female skeleton proved women were more widely involved in creating medieval manuscripts than previously thought, a group of international historians have said.

How to Make the Best Shrimp Cocktail
I can’t think of a shrimp dish I don’t enjoy, but the rate with which I inhale a shrimp cocktail is alarming. There are only two components to the dish—shrimp and sauce—so making a good shrimp cocktail is all about maximizing the flavor in each. To do this, you’ll need to do a bit of roasting (and brining).

'We might have something special here': The genesis of Tom Brady's legend
It’s a story that almost sounds too outlandish to be true. In reality, it’s one of many, part of an entire genre of bold Brady assertions that ooze self-belief. Per his sister, Maureen, teenage Tommy told his mother: “One day I’m going to be a household name.” Per a roommate at Michigan, he’d consistently declare: “I’m going to be a starting quarterback in the NFL.” At the roommate’s bachelor party in March 2001, in the shadow of Bledsoe’s 10-year contract, Brady told the roommate’s cousin: “I think I have a great shot at being quarterback this year.”

There is, of course, Robert Kraft’s famous story, of Brady’s pizza-box-in-hand introduction, followed by the words: “I’m the best decision this organization has ever made.” But there are others. Brady told fellow rookie Casey Tisdale in 2000 that he’d have Bledsoe’s job within three years. Once he got it, he told cornerback Ty Law: “[Bledsoe] isn’t getting this f – – – ing job back.”
[...]
Nugent remembers him stepping to the front of a meeting room the day after an early season loss, asking Belichick for a word with the team. Nugent thought to himself, “Tom, no, buddy. Not now, it’s too soon.” But head coach ceded the floor, and sophomore Tommy delivered his message, essentially: I know we’re not where we wanted to be as a team. I know I’m not the quarterback you’d expect to lead the turnaround. But I’m going to do everything in my power to do just that. All I ask is that you all do the same.

“I just remember the passion he had, and the seriousness of his expression,” Nugent says. “There was not one person in there that thought it was funny, that didn’t buy in. And sure enough … he became our leader that year. We never doubted him.”

Brady began to build bonds with the team’s elder statesmen, often accompanying the linemen to a since-shuttered Foxborough restaurant called Outlaw BBQ on Thursday nights. “We would sit back and eat, and drink beers,” center Damien Woody reminisces. “Man, we would have a ball.” And Brady, as tradition required, would often pick up the tab. “He ingratiated himself to us,” Woody says. “And when you have that type of relationship, man, that’s a lot of equity in your pocket.”

T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T Are Selling Customers' Real-Time Location Data, And It's Falling Into the Wrong Hands
It is obvious that the telecommunications companies know your location when you have a mobile phone, but there is some trust that that data isn't being used for other purposes. We shouldn't trust.

> Microbilt buys access to location data from an aggregator called Zumigo and then sells it to a dizzying number of sectors, including landlords to scope out potential renters; motor vehicle salesmen, and others who are conducting credit checks. Armed with just a phone number, Microbilt’s “Mobile Device Verify” product can return a target’s full name and address, geolocate a phone in an individual instance, or operate as a continuous tracking service.

This is a crisis of ethics. How is it justifiable to track your location and sell it to other commercial entities when there is no expectation that that is occurring. This has the additional issue that there is no way for the user to even know that it is or is not happening since it’s on the providers end.

Big investment of money, time, and energy to dig up dirt on someone a) who’s seldom mentioned in celebrity mags,
b) whose face is unknown to millions, BUT
c) who just happens to own the Washington Post and is often attacked by POTUS because of its coverage. https://t.co/MUwDR6u3tE
