'I'm Going to Die': Fear Grips Vegas Strip; Gunman Kills 59 (jdargis)

"People start screaming and yelling and we start running," said Andrew Akiyoshi, who provided the cellphone video to The Associated Press. "You could feel the panic. You could feel like the bullets were flying above us. Everybody's ducking down, running low to the ground."

While some concertgoers hit the ground Sunday night, others pushed for the crowded exits, shoving through narrow gates and climbing over fences as 40- to 50-round bursts of fire rained down on them from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay casino hotel.

One bedroom. No parking. One million dollars. (Aaron M.)

Most people would be thrilled to have a million dollars to spend on a home, of course, or even half that or a quarter that. They don’t need a mansion, just a place to live that’s safe and a decent commute to work.

But $1 million used to mean something, even to those who could only dream. It was a golden threshold — the champagne lifestyle.

One ex-banker's built-in advantage in the Fed chair race: Family ties to Trump (Uncletommy)

Ronald Lauder, Estée Lauder's younger son, has known Trump for five decades, ever since they attended the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. The two have since run in similar circles, both in New York and in Palm Beach, Florida, where they have homes. Trump even launched a cologne in 2004 called “Donald Trump, the Fragrance” in partnership with Estée Lauder.

South Korea Phones the North Twice a Day. No One Answers (jdargis)

The world has responded by stepping up sanctions and military pressure on Pyongyang. In South Korea, the most important decisions on North Korea now come from the president's office and the defense and foreign ministries. The Unification Ministry has been mostly left to issuing boilerplate denouncements of Pyongyang's weapons tests and propaganda outbursts.

The Gold Coin Dilemma, Politics and Nonsense (GE Christenson)

There is a straightforward answer to this question, but let’s speculate on what happens when we involve politics and prejudice.

Catalan referendum: Anti-police strike hits public services (jdargis)

The strike was called in protest at "the grave violation of rights and freedoms" seen during Sunday's ballot. Almost 900 people were hurt as Spanish police tried to prevent voting, in a referendum declared illegal by the Madrid government.

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said the vote made a "mockery" of democracy.

The Next Big Offshore Boom Is About To Happen Here (Michael K.)

Exxon will now join these fellow supermajors in the Brazilian shelf, partnering with Petrobras on six of the ten licenses it won. This should be indication enough that Brazil’s deposits hold enough appeal for an industry that has suffered a worrying shortage of new discoveries in the last few years. Wood Mackenzie estimated the capital spending cuts for the global oil and gas industry at a stunning $1 trillion, and that estimate was made in the middle of last year.

The end of an epic butterfly journey? (edelinski)

Now, a new analysis has quantified the western monarch’s historic population as far back as the early 1980s by combining long-term data sets collected by researchers and citizen scientists. The results both surprised and alarmed butterfly experts. “We knew the population was declining,” says Cheryl Schultz, a conservation biologist at Washington State University and lead author on the study. What surprised her was realizing that the West held, on average, 10 million monarchs in the 1980s – a far cry from recent annual counts of approximately 300,000. If current trends continue, Schultz says, western monarchs could stop migrating in as few as 35 years.
