Ever wonder why it is that so many storms seem to follow the route of Interstate 95? http://theatln.tc/2ohAjNG

    Why Storms Seem to Follow I-95
    The cities and roads are where they are because of what the Fall Line is: a more or less invisible, small, underground cliff-an escarpment-that marks the old edge of the continent. On the Fall Line's west side, the high side, are tough crystalline rocks; on the east side, the low side, are soft, easily moveable sediments.

What can you learn from the brain of a genius?

    Who Stole Einstein's Brain?
    Einstein's brain has been on a bit of a journey, and most people aren't aware of it. There's a lot of debate as to whether or not the late, famed intellect had a unique brain structure, but few would argue that the story that began following his demise is anything other than a cloak-and-dagger thriller.

Philadelphia PR and Digital Marketing Agency Flackable Continues Expansion Following its Move to Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 20, 2018- Flackable, a national public relations and digital marketing agency headquartered in Philadelphia, has expanded its team by adding Katie Dunphy as an account coordinator. In her role, Dunphy will be responsible for developing and executing results-driven PR and digital marketing campaigns for Flackable's growing client base.

Founded in 2014 by financial marketing strategist Brian Hart, who was recently recognized in Irish America Magazine's 2017 Business 100 and PR News' 2017 Rising PR Stars 30 & Under, Flackable takes a dynamic approach to helping clients reach their communication goals while leading them into the New Media Age.

"Philadelphia is home to some of the brightest, most passionate creative professionals on the planet. We moved to the city last year to tap into this abundance of talent, recruiting results-driven team members committed to our clients' success," said Hart. "Katie brings the talent, energy and attitude needed to flourish in her new role."

Dunphy is a graduate of High Point University, where she received her B.A. in Strategic Communications, with a minor in Event Management. Prior to joining Flackable, Katie completed internships with Philadelphia Magazine, ProServ Event Management, YSC Sports Marketing and Adoptions From The Heart. While at High Point, she was a member of the National Communication Association Honor Society and the National Society of Leadership and Success.

"This is beyond exciting - joining one of Philadelphia's newest and fastest growing creative agencies," Dunphy said. "I'm thrilled to be part of such an accomplished team, and I'm eager to help the company continue establishing itself as a premier player in the region."

"The difference between normal light and what the researchers created is actually best illustrated by the example of a lightsaber like those in the Star Wars universe." http://cnet.co/2o9bFyy

    Science takes a step toward real-life lightsabers
    Researchers from MIT and Harvard in 2013 managed to get photons, which are basically particles of light, to play nice with each other and create a new state of matter. Harnessing such a breakthrough could lead to actual quantum leaps in computing and perhaps even give us a real-world lightsaber.

    The surprising science of why ice is so slippery
    Winter Olympic ice sports depend on this one fact: Ice is slippery. The low friction of ice is why speedskaters can reach 35 mph, why figure skaters can twirl in dizzying circles, and why a 40-pound curling stone can glide and accomplish whatever the heck the point of curling is.
