    Have you ever wondered why there is such a lack of commonality in political discourse today? In America, you are either a Trump-supporter or not.

Why is this? Well, there is a theory that precisely explains this dichotomy of behavior. This theory is called the “r/K Selection Theory in Evolutionary Ecology”, and it is based on the observed survival behaviors of creatures. It...

    As tourists lined up to snap photos of the "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign Monday morning, many noticed something amiss. Red graffiti was scrawled on the famous landmark, defacing the main face and one of its structural legs.

"It's kind of sad someone would vandalize something like that," Daniels said. "It's the entrance to the city and everything." The Young Electric Sign Company owns the sign and leases it to Clark County, county spokeswoman Jennifer...

Apparently, not even a lawyer. Juist someone who can read...

    South Korea has chosen a site in central South Chungchong province to house its new capital city. "The Yeongi-Kongju area has been selected as the site for a new capital," Prime Minister Lee Hai-chan said in a live national broadcast. Construction of the new capital, which has not yet been named, is due to begin in 2007 and be completed by 2030. The $45bn move is designed to reduce Seoul's overcrowding and economic dominance over the rest of South Korea. Government and administrative functions will be moved to the new city, and possibly parliament and the supreme court, although...
