*"You Are Not Crazy: Taking a Time Out"* by Madisyn Taylor, The DailyOM "Sometimes as adults, we just need a time out to refocus and gather ourselves before starting out again. Most of us feel a little crazy from time to time. Periods of high stress can make us feel like we’re losing it, as can being surrounded by people whose values are very different from our own. Losing a significant relationship and moving into a new life situation are other events that can cause us to feel off kilter. Circumstances like these recur in our lives, and they naturally affect our mental stability. ... more »

According to the 2018 Military Balance Report, Russia fields 177 heavy to medium transport aircraft. This stands in contrast to America’s 658, China’s 84, France’s 46, and the UK’s 44. Russia’s transport fleet has proven useful in recent operations in Syria, but how did such a numerous fleet evolve in a military that has a strong focus on ground warfare?

Many astrobiologists think there is a decent chance that there’s native life on Mars, although probably only microbial. If so, astronauts landing on Mars might become part of a collision of two biospheres, mixing some of the microbes from Earth with some from Mars. What happens if you do that? Could the biospheres harm each other, or will both types of microbes get on wonderfully well together? Would we notice problems on Mars, or only once they get back?

Strange Wolf like creature discovered, shot by Montana farmer

White Wolf at White Wolf - 7 hours ago
The animal’s front paw appeared too short, the front claws too long, the canine teeth too short, and ears too tall in proportion to the skull to be a purebred wolf, experts said. US wildlife experts are baffled by a "wolf-like" animal that was killed by a Montana farmer. The rancher near the town of Denton shot the creature last week when it came within several hundred metres of his livestock, said officials.

The New Old Nationalism

jurassicpork at Welcome Back to Gotham City - 7 hours ago
(By *American Zen*’s Mike Flannigan, on loan from Ari) *I*n Martin Scorsese's *Gangs of New York*, modern day America was introduced to a new villain who was actually an old villain.

Bill Poole was a large figure in Lower Manhattan in the 19th century. He was a crime boss, Bowery Boy gang leader and Nativist political activist who headed the Know Nothing Party.

On Thursday, the Supreme Court of Israel dismissed a petition against the rules of engagement governing use of force by the Israeli security forces in the violent clashes in Gaza (HCJ 3003/18 *Yesh Din v. IDF Chief of General Staff*). The clashes began on March 30, 2018, around mass Palestinian protests held in various points along the fence separating the Gaza Strip from Israel. The court’s judgment deals with several international law issues arising from the use of force by Israel, but the positions taken on some of these issues are less than clear.

Real Patriotism on Memorial Day Means Losing Fewer Soldiers in Meaningless Wars

Ivan Eland at 10 hours ago
[image: undefined] Most people, when thinking of Memorial Day—if they don’t confuse it with Veterans Day—think of the start of the summer season or great sales at the stores and online. Yet the holiday is supposed to honor those who died in America’s wars. Even some of the limited remembrance on TV and in the news is more superficial than deeply reflective. Perhaps the greatest tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice might be to reduce the number of those who die in future wars. Unfortunately, throughout US history, but especially after the Cold War ended, politicians... more »
