The heat wave currently baking the midsection of the country has turned portions of at least 21 states into a sauna, with unusually high humidity with air temperatures running up to 20 degrees Fahrenheit above average.

On Wednesday, as high temperatures reached the mid-90s all the way into southern Canada, dew points that exceeded an astonishing 80 degrees Fahrenheit sent the heat index – which measures how hot it feels to the human body – soaring into the 100s. 

On Thursday, similar conditions are predicted for much of the corn belt, where evapotranspiration from corn fields is boosting the amount of moisture in the air. This phenomenon, known as “corn sweat,” is helping to make the heat more unbearable in states like Iowa and Minnesota, in particular. Read more…

Bill Cunningham, a longtime fashion photographer for The New York Times known for taking pictures of everyday people on the streets in New York, has died. He was 87.

Cunningham was known for his trademark blue jacket and riding a bicycle with a small camera bag strapped to his waist.

Tech has indeed worked both for and against Obama throughout the last few years of his administration. The president has frequently butted heads with Silicon Valley over how much access the federal government should have to encrypted private data and the government has endlessly battled the spread of Islamic State (ISIS) propaganda across the web and social media Read more…
