Dialects of American English
This is fascinating.
This trend is likely to continue as the monopolization of our economy spirals upward. Systems of locality will increasingly have to compete with cities’ corporate strength, and as the exodus from rural America comes to our nation’s urban centers these people will be forced into close proximity with otherness, having the unintentional effect of broadening their perspectives through sheer necessity to coexist.
The U.S., despite lack of U.N. approval and growing demands for legal justifications, is determined to strike Syria in response to an Aug. 21 chemical weapons attack attributed to the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Earlier we posted a Reuters map that listed the U.S., British, and French forces and bases that are positioned near Syria. But that doesn’t tell the whole story, since it does not illustrate what those assets are threatening.
So we added to it with information from maps created by Foreign Policy, Agence France-Presse, the Institute for the Study of War, The Telegraph and two via BBC in addition to highlighting U.S. military bases in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.Here’s what the Western assets in the arena currently look like.
A satellite barely bigger than a washing machine and launched just two months ago has already made this great map of the world’s vegetation.
The Belgian-built satellite called Proba-V is the latest in the European Space Agency’s PROBA series of small satellites and will take over vegetation monitoring duties from the Spot-4 and Spot-5 satellites, which are at the end of a 15-year mission.
Proba-V will circle the Earth 14 times a day, covering the entire globe every two days with its 100-meter resolution camera. Every 10 days, a new 200,000 megapixel image of the world’s vegetation will be produced.

Map: Another Major Tar Sands Pipeline Seeking U.S. Permit
Canadian energy giant Enbridge is quietly building a 5,000-mile network of new and expanded pipelines that would achieve the same goal as the Keystone. By Lisa Song, InsideClimate News
As I understand it, the pipelines currently in existence have outlived the expended lifespan and will become more and more accident prone. Which is worse?
We Californians be like
“Excuse me but your shirt is fucking gorgeous”
“Wow thank you very much! My nanna fucking knitted it for me!”
“So fucking fetch”
