Several days ago I wrote about how I was desperately in need of a luggage makeover.

Several days ago I wrote about how I was desperately in need of a luggage makeover. You guys had a lot of amazing suggestions, which I really appreciated. As I explained, I needed to make a decision by this past weekend, not just because both my bags needed to be sent for repair, and I have too much upcoming travel to be bagless, but also because I’ve spent the past year complaining endlessly to Ford and Tiffany about my luggage trying to decide how to fix my luggage situation. I can’t tell you how many hours I’ve spent looking at options, getting frustrated, and then giving up. Well, I have some good news — I have some new luggage, and I’ve also finally dumped Tumi. I’ll share this in two separate posts, because there were two unrelated decisions here — I decided I was done with Tumi before I actually knew what I was going to replace it with. I’ve had Tumi luggage for a long time… probably about 15 years? I’ve had various bags from them, and overall I’ve found the bags to be decent quality. Do I think they’re the highest quality and most stylish bags out there? Nope, but for the most part they’ve been good enough. I’ve also been able to score some great deals on their bags over...

The condition of Redwood Spiritual Life Ministry’s greenhouses after law enforcement left, according to a photo submitted by the Redwood Spiritual Healing Ministry A church called Redwood Spiritual Healing Ministry filed a lawsuit Thursday, June 27 against the County of Humboldt and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) alleging violations of its 1st Amendment right to religious freedom as well as due process violations when a multiple agency task force destroyed cannabis as well as private property during the execution of a search warrant. The case further alleges that the County of Humboldt may have withheld relevant information from a judge by having CDFW file the Affidavit for the search warrant without informing the judge that the property in question may be a church under the law. Attorney Matthew Pappas explained that the Redwood Spiritual Healing Ministry views marijuana as a sacrament just as many Christian faiths view wine as a sacrament.  Pappas listed a number of religions that have used cannabis religiously over the generations including Hindu, the Sufi, Rastafari, Shikhs and Taoists.

Inside the Lab That Pushes Supergrid Circuit Breakers to the Limit

Imagine a blazingly hot day in central China, when all the air conditioners in every megacity are running at full blast. Through the remote mountains of Shanxi province, the major transmission lines that carry ultrahigh-voltage electricity to the cities are operating at close to maximum capacity. Heated by the sunshine and the flowing current, the transmission lines sag dangerously close to the treetops. Suddenly the current jumps from line to tree branch, finding the path of least resistance and pouring through the tree into the ground. There’s a bright flash as the current ionizes the air. During this short circuit, the abruptly unleashed current reaches 10 to 20 times its normal level within a blink of an eye. Now the power grid’s protection system must act fast. Within milliseconds, protection relays must recognize the fault and command the circuit breakers at both ends of the line to switch off the current, isolating the faulted line. The stakes are high: A sustained short-circuit current can trigger a chain reaction of failures throughout the grid and cause widespread blackouts, severely damaging expensive equipment in the process. The 2003 blackout in northeast North Amer...
