[Translate] This year’s Golden Globes started out awful and became absolutely maddening—then news of David Bowie’s death hit VIDEO (Credit: AP/RTNWalter) David Bowie died late last night, which is not, itself, strictly related to last night’s telecast of the Golden Globes. The rock legend was 69 years old and lost his battle with cancer after an incredible, decades-long, massively influential career. The news broke in Hollywood on one of the industry’s most decadent, glamorous nights, as the Globes afterparties were in full swing. Bowie was the perfect pop icon for an event like the Golden Globes, precisely because he was so endlessly versatile—a musician, an actor, a political force, and a performance artist. (He was nominated only once — for best original song for a motion picture, “Theme from Cat People,” 1983.) His dedication...

In particular, Ted Cruz, once the crazy conservative of the right wing, is being talked about as a “compromise” candidate. Never mind that the compromise candidate talks lovingly of carpet bombing, wants to shut down a good chunk of the government and plans to hand the super rich a fat tax break or several. The logic seems to be that as long as you’re not Donald Trump, you must be sane and a few steps closer to a smart, reasonable candidate. Alas, the quieter ones...

So when the Obama administration launched the 14th annual Solar Decathlon—a contest to build the most badass, cutting-edge, solar-powered home—they put pen to paper and hammer to nail. The result is the Sure House (a take on “shore house”), which was awarded first place in the competition this weekend.

POPCORN, CLIMATE CHANGE, AND CRAZY WEATHER: WATCH THIS NEAT SCIENCE EXPLANATION...

Facing “constant, and sometimes toxic, public challenges,” scientists overemphasize uncertainty while downplaying the risks of climate change. “We all lose when scientists self-censor due to continued harassment.” The study identifies several reasons for this response, but one in particular stands out: the looming...
