Confirming that which was expected

In the scientific world confirming, through observation and testing, a hypothesis is a monumental accomplishment worthy of high accolades. Never mind the fact that it may have already been supposed and generally accepted in some scientific model years before its discovery. To be fair, many hypothesizes could not be confirmed because technology was not advanced enough to allow observation or proper testing.

New Internet Security Going Forward

Another reason NOT to click

It is a long standing statement of fact that the general internet public is a click happy bunch of folks with little concern or thought for what might be real or not. Currently, coinciding with the cascading avalanche of information on the disaster of Flight MH17, there is an influx of malware, false stories, and spam, permeating the internet.

Beware of what you click on and don't be duped by bold and sensational headlines promising onsite footage or other such nonsense. It is a shame that people exploit tragedies such as this one but it is not surprising.

A new ranking of the Booziest States in America — using 10 criteria ranging from per-capita craft breweries to last-call hours — finds that Tennessee ... well, isn't very boozy.

Megan Brennan, the soon-to-be Postmaster General, has a heavy task on her hand in steering the beleaguered U.S. Postal Service in the right direction as it continues to hemorrhage cash. She's well aware of what's in front of her, as she has served as the Chief Operating Officer of the USPS, and has a basic framework: Run it like a private-sector business. This seems to make sense, given that people are sending less mail and more packages, putting the USPS against FedEx and UPS. Her first task is…
