A civil rights historical marker in Mississippi has been vandalized, obliterating information about black teenager Emmett Till, who was kidnapped and lynched in 1955. The slaying galvanized the civil rights movement when Till's mother, Mamie Till Mobley, had an open-casket funeral in Chicago to show how her 14-year-old son had been brutalized while he was visiting the Mississippi Delta. Allan Hammons, whose public relations firm made the marker, said Monday that someone scratched the marker with a blunt tool in May. During the past week, a tour group discovered vinyl panels had been peeled off the back of the metal marker in Money, Mississippi.

By Alister Doyle OSLO (Reuters) - The rise in global sea levels has accelerated since the 1990s amid rising temperatures, with a thaw of Greenland's ice sheet pouring ever more water into the oceans, scientists said on Monday. Sea levels have risen by about 20 cms in the past century and many scientific studies project a steady acceleration this century as man-made global warming melts more ice on land. The study found that early satellite data had exaggerated the rate of sea level rise in the 1990s, masking the recent acceleration.

Not too long ago RideApart first told you about Vanderhall Motor Works, a Utah-based company making three-wheeled vehicles. Is it a car, or is it a motorcycle? Legally, since it has less than four wheels, it's considered to be a motorcycle in the state of California (where we tested it).
"We've sold up to 1500 a day and people have waited up to 2 hours in line just to get one," says co-founder of The Loop, Jed Cartojano. This is no accident: Cartojano runs the popular Instagram account @dailyfoodfeed and knew that if he opened up his own dessert shop, he had to be sure of one thing: No one could leave without snapping a pic. "We only have one soft serve machine," Cartojano says, "and have been told by our vendors that we sell more of it than soft serve ice cream stores!" It's all for that pic.
