This month marks 350 years since John Milton sold his publisher the copyright of Paradise Lost for the sum of five pounds. His great work dramatizes the oldest story in the Bible, whose principal characters we know only too well: God, Adam, Eve, Satan in the form of a talking snake — and an apple. Except, of course, that Genesis never names the apple but simply refers to "the fruit." To quote from the King James Bible: And the woman said to the serpent, "We may eat the fruit of the trees o…

I awoke to the sound of a mosquito buzzing near my ear. It was still dark out, and I could see the stars from my window, a rare sight in India when you are in the city. I, however, was at least a few hours from the nearest one. To be honest, I wasn't quite sure where I was as I was never given the address or directions, having been transported by a private car from Hyderabad, one of India's bustling tech hubs. I was spending a few days at the Prajwala facilities, a compound of several…

They use a gas powered drill to bore through 3 to 4 feet of ice — though it's sometimes more. They do this at several l…

Sometimes, even professionally compassionate people get tired. Kristin Laurel, a flight nurse from Waconia, Minn., has worked in trauma units for over two decades. The daily exposure to distressing situations can sometimes result in compassion fatigue. "Some calls get to you, no matter who you are," she says. That burnout is what Laurel says she was trying to understand when she wrote her semi-autobiographical poem, Afflicted . The poem delves into the night shift of an emergency room…

"Why am I doing this, again?" I've asked myself that question several mornings over the past few months as my stomach begins growling, usually after I smell popcorn in my coworker's office. He's on a strict 10 a.m. popcorn schedule that coincides with my strict 10 a.m. hunger pang schedule. I am following an intermittent fasting program as part of a clinical trial for people with multiple sclerosis. For the past five months, I have tried to eat only between noon and 8 p.m., and am allowed…

A tornado has injured dozens and killed multiple people in Canton, a small city in the east of Texas Saturday. Capt. Brian Horton of the Canton Fire Department said authorities did not have an exact count on the number of people killed by the weather, and told reporters late Saturday numbers were "still coming in," but there were "maybe five casualties." The number could rise as search teams expand their operation in the morning, he said. At least 54 people went to hospitals and one person…

"Is anyone going to come through here?" That's what a Hilton hotel employee asked one of a dozen photographers along the red carpet at the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner a couple of hours before the event officially started Saturday evening. But, like a blood-thirsty mosquito on a sweltering night, it was the nagging, persistent thought that seemed to plague attendees throughout the event. The reason: the vacuum left by the absence of President Donald Trump who had decided…
