• Seattle's Minimum Wage Rise Is Reducing Employment In Seattle - I Was Right In Predicting This

    We’ve all been having the most wonderful fun in snarling at each other over the effects of raising the minimum wage. More specifically, there has been a certain back and forth between myself and various acolytes of Nick Hanauer over what the effects of the minimum wage rise in Seattle will do to employment prospects in that fair city.

A rise in the price of low skill labour will lead to employers purchasing less of that low skill labour. The claim is not that, and the claim never has been that, raising

  • Blanca Flores from "Orange is the New Black" is actually a total beauty IRL

    This season of Orange is the New Black featured a lot of secrets, a lot of drama and a lot of that badass that we know as Flores. From her frizzy hair to her uni-brow to her storyline this season where she was smelling particularly janky on purpose - Flores is definitely not the beauty queen of Litchfield Correctional Facility. But wait until you see what Blanca Flores, played by Laura Gomez, looks like out of her drab prison clothes. Flores never really says much, but that doesn’t stop her from being badass and scary in a good way. In Season 1, she convinced the other inmates she’s crazy, so they didn’t find her secret cell phone. And in Season 4, she stood on a table for days to keep the guards

And now scientists believe they have mapped a genetic picture of the qualities that would have belonged to Luca, giving us a startling look at how life on Earth might have begun: ...By comparing their sequence of DNA letters, genes can be arranged in evolutionary family trees, a property that enabled

  • Fisherman captures footage of epic battle between hammerhead and tiger shark

    Despite what totally realistic movies like Sharknado and The Shallows (or the original Jaws) tell you, sharks aren't usually dangerous. To us. To each other, they can be brutal. In an admittedly unusual occurrence, fisherman William Wall discovered a hammerhead shark and a tiger shark in a fight to the death just outside of his fishing boat, located off the coast of Venice, Louisiana.  His friend used a GoPro to check things out.  SEE ALSO: One group's strategy for saving sharks: buy a commercial fishing license A video posted by Captain William Wall (@pelagiccharters) on Jul 22, 2016 at 2:31pm PDT It looks like the tiger shark swam away with the win at the end - an impressive feat considering
