    As if by magic, a new Harry Potter book is here. While not technically a new volume in the series - it's the script of a hit play in London - eager fans lined up at bookstores this past Sunday to see what kind of mischief Harry's son Albus is managing in the wizarding world these days. But if you don’t want to wait to read Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to revisit J.K. Rowling’s brilliantly imaginative world of Hogwarts and Hogsmeade, you can actually experience much of it in the real world, too.

    Dr. Alois Pichler was almost always surrounded by books. In 1869, Pichler, originally from Bavaria, became the so-called “extraordinary librarian” of the Imperial Public Library in St. Petersburg, Russia, a prestigious position that gave him a salary three times higher than the average librarian: 3,000rubles. While many librarians have a deep appreciation for books, Pichler was inflicted with a specific irrepressible illness.

    On New Year’s Eve in 2015 local and federal agents arrested a 26-year-old man in Rochester, N.Y., for planning to attack people at random later that night using knives and a machete. Just before his capture Emanuel L. Lutchman had made a video—to be posted to social media following the attack—in which he pledged his allegiance to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS. Lutchman would later say a key source of inspiration for his plot came from similar videos.

    Late one June night in 2011, a large animal collided with an SUV cruising down a Connecticut parkway. The creature appeared as something out of New England's forgotten past. Beside the road lay a 140-pound mountain lion. Speculations ran wild, the wildest of which figured him a ghostly survivor from a bygone century when lions last roamed the eastern United States. But a more fantastic scenario of facts soon unfolded.

    Away from the prying eyes and very real dangers of the outside world, lesbian bars were cultural centers for many women in New Orleans for decades. This scene, however, shines faintly in the past: today, in a city with one of the most concentrated and vibrant gay bar scenes in the country, there are exactly zero lesbian bars left.

    “It’s better than Disney World,” said Kelsey Trainor, standing in a field in upstate New York, surrounded by 700 costumed Mormons. All around were throngs of missionaries and tourists. People took photos in front of a seven-tiered stage, and families staked out seats among rows of green plastic chairs. Children walked around in the grass, dressed as the sinners of an ancient Mesoamerican civilization. Out on the highway, protestors shouted into bullhorns.

    The woman in her 70s was in trouble. What started as a broken leg led to an infection in her hip that hung on for two years and several hospital stays. At a Nevada hospital, doctors gave the woman seven different antibiotics, one after the other. The drugs did little to help her. Lab results showed that none of the 14 antibiotics available at the hospital could fight the infection, caused by the bacterium Klebsiella pneumoniae.

    One of the most famous and enduring miracles of all time comes from (who else) Jesus Christ - the epic feat of walking over water. In fact, the phrase “walking on water” is basically a synonym for miracle. But while he might be the most famous miracle worker of all time, he is far from the last person to pull off this classic stunt.

    Bread clips! Consider them for a moment, if you will. They're those flat pieces of semi-hard plastic formed into a sort of barbed U-shape—you know the ones. They can be found keeping bread bags all over the world closed and safe from spoilage, smartly designed to be used and reused. They're all around us, constantly providing an amazing service, and yet still, they're taken for granted. And it turns out they're almost exclusively all produced by a single, family-owned company.
