In the scam, the homeowner is told that they must leave their house for a period of twelve hours while the individual sprays crops in the nearby vicinity. There are some indicators that these visits are a scam in an attempt to get the homeowner to leave their house unattended. There are currently no agricultural pesticide spraying practices in Delaware that would require one to leave their…

Brent Deppe is taking me on a tour of the farm supply business, called Key Cooperative , that he helps to manage in Grinnell, Iowa. We step though the back door of one warehouse, and our view of the sky is blocked by a gigantic round storage tank, painted white. "This is the liquid nitrogen tank," Deppe explains. "It's a million-and-a-half gallon tank." Nitrogen is the essential ingredient for growing corn and most other crops. Farmers around here spread it on their fields by the…

German police stopped a vehicle Saturday night, only to find the father and son inside allegedly hauling a heap of ecstasy. The roughly 5,000 pills packed in a handful of bags had a street value of nearly $46,000, according to authorities in Osnabrück . A big catch, to be sure — but that's not the weird part. When they took a closer look, they saw a familiar face staring back. With mouth open wide, impressive eyebrows holding back a swept tuft of mane, each of the thousands of orange pills …

Muslim men in India will no longer be able to terminate their marriages in a matter of moments, after a split decision by the country's Supreme Court overruled the practice of "triple talaq." Previously, Muslim men (and only men) could irrevocably end their marriages by repeating " talaq ," the Arabic word for "divorce," three times. Women's rights advocates in India have fought to end the practice. Now, three of five judges on the Supreme Court have ruled the practice violates the…

It was not until his late 20s that Vincent Doyle discovered that his dead godfather, a priest based central Ireland, was in fact his biological father. And Doyle, a Catholic himself, says that startling discovery inspired in him an abiding mission: to offer support to other children of Roman Catholic priests, who are bound by a vow of celibacy — and to ensure the church supports them, too. "I'm doing this because I love Catholicism," he told The Boston Globe as part of a two-part series t…

The horror of last week's events was a wake up call for many Americans about the rise of American groups dedicated to the tenets of fascism. I was just coming out of the woods after seven days on the Appalachian Trail when I got a text from someone asking: "Did you hear about the Nazis?" This was not what I was hoping for on my return to civilization. The blatant, naked display of hatred, intolerance and violence in Charlottesville was both stomach-turning and shocking. In the face of this…

To get a sense of how severe the opioid crisis is in the U.S., you can look at the number of fatal overdoses – more than 33,000 in 2015, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That means, on average, 91 people are dying after overdosing on opioids each day. And for every fatal overdose, there are believed to be roughly 30 non-fatal overdoses. Clinicians and researchers trying to get a handle on the epidemic look at those non-fatal experiences as opportunities to jump i…

What if I told you there was a way to use technology to save an estimated $100 billion to $300 billion dollars a year in health care spending in the U.S.? That's the estimated cost incurred because people don't take the medications they're prescribed. A number of companies are now selling wireless "smart" pill bottles, Internet-linked devices aimed at reminding people to take their pills. But recent research suggests that actually changing that behavior may take more than an electronic…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIjXUg1s5gc For nearly a decade T-Pain reigned, the ubiquitous King of Auto-Tune. A top-hat wearing ringmaster of tongue-in-cheek club anthems that celebrated his weakness for strippers and lady bartenders, the Tallahassee chart-topper personified the life of the party — until his vocal tricks became the punchline. Copycats rode his wave into the ground, then clowned the man synonymous with the sound. So T-Pain took some time away from the spotlight, only to …

On May 25, 1978, a package exploded at Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill., injuring a security guard. It was the first of a series of 16 bombings that would occur over the next 17 years, killing three people and injuring many others. The suspect in the case, a shadowy figure who frequently used the U.S. mail to send his homemade explosives, became known as the "Unabomber." FBI criminal profiler James R. Fitzpatrick began working on the case in July 1995. He remembers the Unabomber…
