Author Neil Strauss, formerly known as Style. Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists available at my local bookstore comes bound in gold-embossed faux leather with gilded page edges and a satiny red ribbon to mark your place. It looks like a combination of Bible and diary, which matches its contents: Published in , The Game recounts a two-year period during which Strauss, an entertainment journalist for the New York Times and Rolling Stone, hung out with and absorbed the strategies of the pickup artist, or PUA, subculture, men who have transformed the delicate dance of flirtation into a kind of step-by-step recipe. Follow her on Twitter. The Game portrays Strauss as a reformed nebbish. Under the tutelage of a series of pickup gurus—in particular a former stage magician calling himself Mystery—Strauss is reborn as Style. Dopey monikers are de rigueur in these circles. As Strauss, he was pale, skinny, balding, and barely capable of uttering a word to an attractive woman; as Style, he is declared the No.

In the minute short documentary below, the story of a farmer named Michael White is told, who with his father Wayne, took on the corporation in court. Wayne White was sued by Monsanto decades after he stopped farming. The dark act takes away the rights of those people to vote for or against things like GMO labeling in their states. It does seem ironic. If the act is passed, it will truly be a dark day for America. Family farms have been replaced by giant agri corp farms across this great vast country we call home.
Farm aid and other organizations have been fighting the losing battle against this for 30 years now. Dairy and meat farming is done in those white sheds you see from the freeway, no longer on the green pastures of home with the old farmhouses and barns. Those beautiful buildings now stand in ruin across the country. This has happened on our watch while the country slept, distracted by advertising and false information from the corporations. Monsanto and others simply pay the politicians for voting their way.
Both Democratic and Republican front runners are in bed with Monsanto, from Clinton to Bush, as many government branches are and have been for years.

Neil deGrasse Tyson explains why dark matter matters and is kind of our frenemy Excerpt: We have no clue what it is. But we desperately need it in our calculations to arrive at an accurate description of the universe.

Neil deGrasse Tyson Astrophysicist and Science Educator There’s something fundamental we all need to understand about dark matter—it may not actually be matter at all. Neil deGrasse Tyson has a bone to pick with this misnomer that is distracting physicists and the public from the real discoveries to be made. Scientists know very little about “dark matter”, and in fact it can only be observed indirectly by its effect on other objects.
Tyson has a few suggestions for its re-naming: But if you want it to sound sexy and be accurate, then the way to go is dark gravity, according to Tyson. That is so-called “dark matter”. What makes it so interesting isn’t the wild-goose-chase question of whether or not it exists, but why it doesn’t interact with ordinary, known matter? On the way to explaining that dark matter “doesn’t give a rats ass about us,” Tyson explores ghost particles, the essence of objects, and why we haven’t found any dark matter planets.
Tyson’s new book is Astrophysics for People in a Hurry. The question isn’t about whether dark matter exists or not. What’s going on is, when we measure gravity in the universe—the collective gravity of the stars, the planets, the moons, the gas clouds, the black holes, whole galaxies—when we do this, 85 percent has no known origin.

After this date, each contestant can invite another contestant for a one-on-one date; these dates are also held in the dark room.
Throughout the show, the host, Rossi Morreale , provides the men and women with additional insights by providing personality profiles showing which contestants are their best matches and also allowing them to view items the others have brought to the house, such as items of clothing or luggage.
