Migrating Russian eagles run up huge data roaming charges
Russian scientists tracking migrating eagles ran out of money after some of the birds flew to Iran and Pakistan and their SMS transmitters drew huge data roaming charges. After learning of the team's dilemma, Russian mobile phone operator Megafon offered to cancel the debt and put the project on a special, cheaper tariff. The team had started crowdfunding on social media to pay off the bills. The birds left from southern Russia and Kazakhstan. The journey of one steppe eagle, called Min, was particularly expensive, as it flew to Iran from Kazakhstan.

The crankhandle of history
On his journeys Chatwin came to believe that the nomadic inclination was not just a wider human tendency; it was almost a moral obligation. His hunch became a theory. Agriculture had been a mistake. Cities had fostered violence, not culture. He spent years trying to organise these ideas into a book, The Nomadic Alternative, but instead produced an armada of index cards and notebooks, and some stillborn pages of manuscript. The project was important not just because it was a self-justification but also because it would redeem everyone else as well. Chatwin’s interest in anthropology was more than amateur-grade, and he would test his theories on experts. Humans were not naturally violent at all, he believed. They had developed weaponry only to fend off a species of ancient carnivore (that he would call “the Beast”), and these arms had only been turned on other humans because of the stagnation of living in farms, settlements and metropolises. All he needed was proof.

[no title]
A lot of white people were shocked to learn about the bombing of Tulsa from HBO's "Watchmen" while most black people are familiar with the bombing of Black Wall Street. Even historians mention these events as isolated incidents.

Racial terrorism is actually normal in American history but I believe we talk about in the wrong way. These are not isolated incidents , nor are they rare. This is the story of how a national campaign by whites terrorists overthrew the US government

The first race war was the genocide of native Americans. The Civil War was the second. But I want to talk about the third one because it was actually an overthrow of the US government.

Planting misinformation in the human mind
The misinformation effect refers to the impairment in memory for the past that arises after exposure to misleading information. The phenomenon has been investigated for at least 30 years, as investigators have addressed a number of issues. These include the conditions under which people are especially susceptible to the negative impact of misinformation, and conversely when are they resistant. Warnings about the potential for misinformation sometimes work to inhibit its damaging effects, but only under limited circumstances. The misinformation effect has been observed in a variety of human and nonhuman species. And some groups of individuals are more susceptible than others. At a more theoretical level, investigators have explored the fate of the original memory traces after exposure to misinformation appears to have made them inaccessible. This review of the field ends with a brief discussion of the newer work involving misinformation that has explored the processes by which people come to believe falsely that they experienced rich complex events that never, in fact, occurred.
