North Carolina’s LGBT Law Could Cost the State Almost $5 Billion a Year

May 12, 2016 Discrimination can get expensive, it turns out. The sticker price for North Carolina’s HB2—a hastily made law that bans transgender people from using public bathrooms consistent with their gender identity, and bans cities from passing anti-discrimination ordinances protecting LGBT people—is pretty shocking. The law will cost North Carolina nearly $5...

Here's What a Trump Presidency Would Actually Look Like

February 12, 2016 If it wasn’t clear before, it is now: Donald J. Trump doesn’t just have fans, he has voters—and there are a lot of them. In the wake of his commanding victory in the New Hampshire primary, it’s time to take Trump a little more seriously than when he was just...

Trump and Sanders Are Doing Well Because They Tap Into the Same Anxious Feelings

February 9, 2016 Last summer, as America fawned over Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, the media dismissed them as unelectable—reasonable-seeming bets given Sanders’s socialism and Trump’s chronic offense-giving. But after both took second place in the Iowa caucuses, Sanders and Trump are now on track to win the New Hampshire primaries for their...

Signs Point to China in US Research Facility Hack

October 16, 2015 Tech companies, healthcare giants, defense contractors, top universities, the US government—you name it, Chinese cyber-spies have probably hacked it.

Lyme Disease Is Spreading Faster than Ever and Humans Are Partly to Blame

July 10, 2015 Avril Lavigne is the latest celebrity to reveal being felled by Lyme disease.

California’s Governor Signs a Law That Makes Parents Vaccinate Their Kids—Regardless of Their Personal Beliefs

June 30, 2015 California is now officially anti-anti-vaxxer.

China's Island-Building Spree Is About More Than Just Military Might

February 22, 2015 China’s playing Monopoly in the South China Sea—only, instead of building hotels on Pacific Avenue, it’s constructing helipads and, in some cases, whole new islands. In less than a year, shallow reefs in the Spratly Islands have sprouted white-sand outcrops, sporting what look to be Chinese military facilities, according to...

35,000 Walruses Have Mobbed the Alaskan Coast—Because There’s No Sea Ice Left to Rest On

October 1, 2014 It’s exhausting, being a walrus. Seals can swim indefinitely. Not walruses. After a day cruising Arctic water for food, they like to plant their tusks onto an ice floe, haul their blubbery selves up, and have a snooze. But it’s been hard to find a comfy chunk of sea ice...
