How to Fight Back the Human Instinct to Flee When You Panic

In 2003, Aron Ralston went hiking alone in southeastern Utah. An experienced outdoorsman, the trail didn’t seem to present any danger for him. Things were going well until he slipped, dislodged an 800-lb. boulder, and was pinned to the canyon wall by it. With limited supplies and no way to call for help, he realized that the only way he’d leave the canyon alive was if he amputated his arm. Using a dull multi-tool and leverage, he managed to free himself after five days.[1] Aron could have lost his wits and…

How to replace the back glass on the Samsung Galaxy S7

It might be tempting to get a new phone if you smash the back on your Galaxy S7. But it’s a lot cheaper to just replace the glass yourself. Glass-backed phones are inherently more fragile than their plastic or metal-backed counterparts. Glass is more slippery, phones are more prone to just slide off surfaces, and while metal or plastic will chip, glass will crack and shatter. That’s exactly what happened to my Samsung Galaxy S7, and while the Galaxy S8 is here and the Galaxy S9 won’t be too far…

Nebraska’s main anti-pipeline group is trying to rally opposition to the TransCanada Corp’s Keystone XL project’s recently approved route through the state, tracking down landowners it says were not given a voice in the regulatory process. If it succeeds, Bold Nebraska could throw up new roadblocks to the controversial project to move Canadian oil to U.S. refineries, backed by U.S. President Donald Trump, by pressing regulators to revisit TransCanada’s application, or by suing if they refuse. The Nebraska Public Service Commission issued an approval for Keystone XL to pass through…
