Trump’s Lack of Regulation May Make Some Farmers Very Rich, Pacific Standard

Up in the Air: NASA’s Uncertain Future Under Donald Trump, Pacific Standard
“Generally, in the past, as non-defense discretionary spending has diminished, NASA tends to diminish in that budget too,” Dreier says. “So if the overall budget goes down despite the intentions to make it good, NASA won’t be able to go much of anywhere. NASA policy doesn’t drive budgetary policy. It’s the other way around.”
Traer Scott’s Adorable Photos of Wild Baby Animals: How a photographer documented rescued critters big and small, American Photo
One of the challenges with photographing wild babies, Scott says, presented itself when she realized she had no idea which species were going to be born when. “For the years I was shooting, I was nervous that I’d be able to find enough subjects within the constraints of the deadlines,” she says. “I shot within the peak of baby season and then wouldn’t shoot for six months.”

Status Foe, Bitch
When she isn’t tending to crops on Farmville, she finds herself asking, “What did I do wrong? Where did I so obviously make a huge mistake?”
