    A summer job. That's all it was supposed to be. It never crossed my mind that I was about to collide with a man who would obliterate every plan I ever made. My mother has always warned me that love is like a lightning bolt and it strikes without warning. But I had no intention of getting struck by either lightning or love anytime soon. I'd be too busy finishing my journalism degree and landing a job in a city far more sophisticated than Phoenix. There was certainly nothing in the cards about getting involved with an ex-ballplayer turned nightclub boss.

    For many, the call to enter the political fray feels necessary. “Sure, scientific inquiry should be immune from the whims of politicians. It just isn't,” science editor Miriam Kramer recently wrote in Mashable. Others worry that staging a political march will “serve only to reinforce the narrative from skeptical conservatives that scientists are an interest group and politicize their data,” as coastal ecologist Robert Young put it in a controversial opinion article in The New York Times.

    The breaking news of July 4, 1915, shocked New Yorkers and the rest of the country. A shooting at the home of America’s most powerful banker J.P. Morgan, the son of the financial giant (and tyrant) with the same name, exposed tensions that could barely be kept under wraps as the United States—with about 15 percent of its population born abroad—struggled to remain neutral in the war tearing apart Europe.

    It started with a simple question: where were all the women pirates? Laura Sook Duncombe loved Peter Pan as a child and gobbled up every book on piracy she could find. But as she read, she was forced to face the harrrrrrd truth: All of the women seemed relegated to mere footnotes and short paragraphs sprinkled throughout books about male pirates. This curiosity spurred a quest for answers—and led to her new book.

    According to a press release, the site was covered by sediment from the Jordan River, which helped preserve the 9,000 bits of plant debris and seeds. Stone tools and animal bones found in the same layer of sediment as the plant debris allowed the researchers to associate the food remains with the shoreline’s prehistoric residents. The research appears in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Sometimes fate has other plans. Now our future is in her hands.
