Here’s a casualty of the cashless society you might not have previously thought of: the humble street performer. After all, if more of us are paying our way with smartphones and contactless cards, how can we give spare change to musicians on the subway? London has one solution: a new scheme that outfits performers with contactless payment terminals.

What would Stuart Little make of it? Mice have been created whose brains are half human. As a result, the animals are smarter than their siblings.
The idea is not to mimic fiction, but to advance our understanding of human brain diseases by studying them in whole mouse brains rather than in dishes.
The altered mice still have mouse neurons – the “thinking” cells that make up around half of all their brain cells. But practically all the glial cells in their brains, the ones that support the neurons, are human.
“It’s still a mouse brain, not a human brain,” says Steve Goldman of the University of Rochester Medical Center in New York. “But all the non-neuronal cells are human.”

A dissident Russian journalist reported murdered in Kiev on Tuesday dramatically reappeared alive on Wednesday during a televised briefing by Ukrainian state security about the killing, which they then said they had faked. "I would like to apologize for what you have all had to go through," said Babchenko, who looked on the verge of tears. "I'm sorry but there was no other way of doing it. Separately, I want to apologize to my wife for the hell that she has been through."

Wetumpka, Ala. – Shortly after fire crews responded to an alleged arson at a local Church’s Chicken late last night, one member of the Alabama black metal scene came forward to claim responsibility for the blaze.
When asked about his issue with Church’s Chicken directly, Nyxx explained, “That place is the lovechild of the two things in this world I despise most: Processed meat stripped from abused and inhumanely treated animals, and organized religion. I saw it as a sort of ‘two birds, one stone’ opportunity. Anyone who bows to an empty God or eats a bucket of drumsticks for dinner is part of America’s biggest problem. You people are why I want to just move to the dark woods of Norway and be done with this hellhole of a country.”

It's not Monday but it is the first day back to work after a long weekend for many, and we haven't done one of these for a while... so for your consideration today we have Penelope Spheeris' opus to punk angst, Suburbia, featuring a very young Mike B. the Flea with performances by DI, the Vandals, and TSOL. Either join those nutty TR kids in their hijinks or drag your ass into the office, whatevs.
