The Great Thaw Of America's North Is Coming

The Great Thaw
The Great Thaw Of AmericaVladimir Romanovsky walks through the dense black spruce forest with ease. Not once does he stop or slow down to balance himself on the cushy moss beneath his feet insulating the permafrost.

It’s a warm day in July, and the scientist is looking for a box that he and his team have installed on the ground. It’s hidden nearly six miles (10km) north of the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska in Fairbanks, where he’s a professor of geophysics and heads the Permafrost Laboratory.

The box, which is covered by tree branches, contains a data collector connected to a thermometer installed below ground for measuring permafrost temperature at different depths. Permafrost is any earth material that remains at or below 0C (32F) for at least two consecutive years.

Have You Ever Wondered?

Have You Ever Wondered?
Have you ever wondered what side of the fence you sit on?

- If a Conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one. If a Liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

- If a Conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat. If a Liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned.

- If a Conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation. If a Liberal is down-and-out, he wonders who is going to take care of him.

- If a Conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels. If a Liberal doesn't like a talk show host, he demands the talk show host be shut down.

- If a Conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church. If a Liberal is a non-believer, he wants any mention of God or Jesus silenced.

- If a Conservative needs health care, he goes about shopping for it or getting a job that provides it. If a Liberal needs health care, he demands the rest of us pay for his.

- If a Conservative reads this, he will have a good laugh. If a Liberal reads this, he will be offended.

The 4 Breakfast Trends That Dominated 2017

The 4 Breakfast Trends
For some people, breakfast is more about trends than nourishment. Some of the latest breakfast trends can’t possibly taste good (please @ me if you genuinely enjoy spirulina and dyed cream cheese with activated charcoal on bread—excuse me, mermaid toast—I want to talk to you). But thankfully, the majority of trendy breakfast foods these days actually make for a meal that will keep you energized throughout the morning. Working with data based on meal entries from over 220 million users of the app MyFitnessPal, Self has reported on the biggest breakfast trends of 2017. Some are meals you've probably made in the last week. I know I have. And no, mermaid toast didn’t make the cut.
