Colombian forces stormed the building and freed the hostages, but scores were killed, including many justices. The Colombian government has been accused of abuses during the siege, and leaders have apologized. On Wednesday, November 6, 1985, the guerrilla group M19, or the April 19 movement, stormed Colombia’s Palace of Justice and held all 25 of the country’s Supreme Court justices and hundreds of civilians hostage. The M19 rebels had been frustrated by the government’s violation of a ceasefire, and they were […]

by I'm Struggling
Wikimedia First we scoured coast to coast to find the most famous book set in every state. Now we’re hitting the books to discover the most famous author from every state. Not all the choices were cut and dried. To qualify for this list, the esteemed wordsmiths had to be born in their respective states but not necessarily live out their years there. We considered the authors’ fame in terms of ubiquity, literal acclaim, and financial success — and awarded bonus points if the authors showed state pride by setting their works there.

in News
By Dr. Mercola When you house nearly 10 million pigs in a coastal state like North Carolina, placing them primarily in low-lying counties near the coast, you’ve set the stage for inevitable environmental disaster. Yet, many are talking about the devastation caused to North Carolina’s concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) by Hurricane Florence as a catastrophe, as though it came as a surprise. History has already shown that hog waste, which amounts to 10 billion gallons annually in North Carolina alone, is not adequately contained in tidy, impenetrable “lagoons,” the way Big Agriculture would have you believe. Even under the […]

What 9/11 looked like to the only American service member not on earth

by I'm Struggling
NASA The question of “where were you on Sept. 11?,” the traditional addendum to the distinctly post-9/11 rallying cry of “never forget,” means something different to the service members and veterans who saw combat in the Global War on Terror than it does for the average civilians. Thousands of military personnel sprang into action on that Tuesday, from racing toward the World Trade Center and Pentagon alongside first responders to securing U.S. air sovereignty from the cockpit of an F-15. In the decade that followed, more than 3 million Americans joined the armed forces. The attacks were an unmistakable call of duty, one that Americans are […]

A small startup forced its employees to take vacation time and forbid answering emails, and the results were astounding

by I'm Struggling
Shutterstock Vacation time was mandatory during an experiment at a small startup called SimpliFlying. Employees had to take one week off every seven weeks, and if they got in touch with the office while they were away, they weren’t paid for that vacation week. Productivity and happiness increased afterward. There’s evidence suggesting that unlimited vacation policies don’t necessarily encourage employees to take time off. Work can be nerve-racking. So can taking a day off. Which is why many modern employees are guilty of checking their email, Slack, and voice messages while they’re supposedly out of the office: What if something […]
