NooOOoooOOOooI “The Dark Side of Almond Use" by James Hamblin on The Atlantic says “thousands of endangered king salmon in northern California’s Klamath River are threatened by low water levels because water is being diverted to almond farms” and “ecological implications of almond farming during a drought are ‘potentially dire.’” Oh, delicious almonds…nothing can ever be perfect, can it?
For someone who has only ever seen a bear in the wild once—when it ran across a highway a half a mile ahead of my car—I am peculiarly obsessed with avoiding bear attacks. (I blame it on reading “The Bear" by Claire Cameron.) So, “The Best Things to Do in a Bear Encounter" on Slate.com was perfect for me. So much more useful—but not as funny—as I Love Charts’ “How to Survive a Bear Attack, If You Are Too Lame to Fight.”
“Email is Killing Us" by Derek Thompson on Quartz really hit home…hard… ouch.
