1. This hedgehog who now knows he can fit perfectly inside a Starbucks cup.
"Two expressions that became especially popular with CBS News brass, [Sharyl Attkisson] says, were 'incremental' and 'piling on.'"

The administration, with the full cooperation of the media, has successfully turned “Benghazi” into a word associated with nutters, like “Roswell” or “grassy knoll,” but Attkisson notes that “the truth is that most of the damaging information came from Obama administration insiders. From government documents. From sources who were outraged by their own government’s behavior and what they viewed as a coverup.”...
If lone-wolf terrorists are "idiots who are sitting in their tighty-whities, in their mother's basements" — as the editor of Islamic Monthly called them — is there anything American Muslims should do about them?
On "Meet the Press" this morning, Chuck Todd asked Arsalan Iftikhar, senior editor at Islamic Monthly, about "the role of the American Muslim community" in dealing with the problem of the so-called "lone-wolf" terrorist, those "people that are self-radicalizing," perhaps "newcomers into the Islamic communities": "What's the role of the leadership in these Islamic communities to identify perhaps people that are joining, converting, but not for the right reasons?"

Like many people, I’ve been using various cloud services for a few years. But recently I moved my whole life into the cloud, and I thought it would be worth sharing the experience here.
My previous situation was that my files were spread all over the place – the majority on the hard drive of my PC, many on my laptop, a few on my phone and iPad, and anything I needed to share was split between Google Drive and Dropbox. It was a mess! And as someone who travels a lot, I was often in the situation where I had the wrong piece of equipment for whatever I needed to access.

Why do families choose home birth?
A woman might choose to have her baby at her home for a variety of reasons. For example, some women might choose home birth after being disappointed or upset with the hospital birth of a previous child. Other women might choose home birth because they want to give birth without medication, and they might feel like that option is more doable outside of a hospital setting, where an epidural, or an anesthesia generally delivered through shots in or around a person’s spine, are readily available. Some women might feel safer having their babies at home than in a hospital. Also, some families might be more comfortable with planned home births for cultural or religious reasons.
When discussing whether to have a planned home birth, it’s important for families to research midwives or physicians they would like to use, interviewing prospective midwives to ensure they are comfortable with their levels of experience and practices. Also, it’s important to have a birth plan in place to ensure that the family knows what will happen in case of emergency.
