On Monday afternoon in Amalia, New Mexico, up a rocky stretch of dirt road, the land is quiet, the only noise coming from cicadas and news crews walking on clay to the entrance of an abandoned compound. The property is littered with debris from the people who once lived here — baby seats, David Lindahl’s book, Principle of Success: How Ordinary People Become Extraordinarily Wealthy, copies of the Koran, mixed piles of school books, Stoli bottles and bullet shells. A white Budget van is parked before six-foot stacks of tires, near an Alumalite trailer draped in white tarp. A Bushmaster Firearms International ad lies on wood flooring inside the trailer, while plastic plates and Folgers cans line the sink. Russet potatoes, pinto beans and canned peaches are in the closet. In the open air there is a board with a blue, childlike drawing of a figure in the back of the structure. It is riddled with bullet holes. It was here that, nearly two weeks ago, authorities raided the … [Read more...] about New Mexico Compound Suspects Charged, Given Bail as Baffled Community Reels
Last summer, an elite group of scientists, economists and government officials gathered at Snowmass ski resort near Aspen, Colorado, to contemplate the end of the world. The weeklong “workshop, held in the shadow of 14,000-foot-high peaks at the Top of the Village lodge, was organised by the Energy Modeling Forum, a group of academics and industry leaders affiliated with Stanford University. A few months earlier, Stanford professor John Weyant, the director of the group, had asked participants to consider a nightmare scenario: It’s 2010, and global warming is not only happening, it’s accelerating. The Greenland and western Antarctic ice sheets are melting at an exponential rate, leading to predictions of a twenty-foot rise in sea levels by 2070. In this scenario, southern Florida vanishes, New York City becomes an aquarium, London looks like Venice. In Bangladesh alone, 40 million people are displaced by the rising waters. Droughts cripple food production, leading to … [Read more...] about Can Geoengineering Save The World?
Soccer Mommy, a.k.a. Sophie Allison, unveiled a sinister new song “Lucy” accompanied by a Matrix-like visual. The track will be released as a 7-inch single via Loma Vista Recordings. Short for “Lucifer,” “Lucy” is a slow-burner with a fuzzy guitar riff and intense, sensuous lyrics like “You cannot resist him/When you look in his shiny eyes/The face of an angel/With the heart of something less nice.” “‘Lucy’ is a really fun song for me because it has a dark, evil vibe,” Allison said in a statement. “It’s a song about struggling with inner demons and your own morality, but I masked it with this scenario of being seduced by the devil. I’m really excited to share this with everyone because I think it shows a different side of my writing.” Allison recently released a demo of “Blossom.” The track originally appeared on her 2018 critically-acclaimed LP Clean, which she dropped out of … [Read more...] about Hear Soccer Mommy’s Stark New Single ‘Lucy’
