  • Leonard Nimoy's final tweet is beautiful, and it broke my heart

    My dad was — and is — a huge Star Trek nerd, and when I was a kid he'd excitedly show me episodes of the original series in syndication. It was a show that he watched in college, he'd say, explaining why Kirk was Kirk, Bones was Bones, and most importantly, why Leonard Nimoy's Spock was Spock. One of my earliest moments of geek fandom was when I tracked down the script for the original Star Trek pilot, "The Cage." I got it, read it, and excitedly took it to my dad. He was a Star Trek geek after all.

  • Daytona winner Logano takes Atlanta pole; 13 cars shut out

    Joey Logano is on quite a roll, following up his victory in the Daytona 500 by taking the pole for Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Atlanta Motor Speedway. NASCAR is on the defensive after 13 drivers - including four former champions - didn't even get on the track for qualifying Friday after failing to pass inspection. Four-time Cup winner Jeff Gordon, who is retiring at the end of the season, called the situation ''absolutely embarrassing.'' Logano led the final session of qualifying with a blistering speed of 194.683 mph, taking advantage of temperatures in the 40s as the sun set on the 1.54-mile trioval. He has never been a strong qualifier in Atlanta, but he's on quite a roll after his victory last weekend in the biggest race of the year.

    Stephen Hawking may be most famous for his work on black holes and gravitational singularities, but the world-renowned physicist has also become known for his outspoken ideas about things that could destroy human civilization. Here are a few things Hawking has said could bring about the demise of human civilization.

  • Pelosi Slams ‘Toxic Anti-Immigrant’ House Republicans

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi came out swinging at House Republicans on Friday for pushing a vote on a bill that will fund the Department of Homeland Security for the next three weeks. The short-term bill, which the House will vote on later Friday, before DHS’s looming midnight shutdown, will allow Republicans time to possibly dismantle President Obama’s executive amnesty action. “Democrats will not dignify House Republicans toxic anti-immigrant riders by supporting going to conference,” Pelosi said. “With every House Democrat supporting long-term DHS funding legislation, it’s clear this crisis exists only because Republicans prioritize anti-immigrant extremism over the safety of the American people,” Pelosi continued.

  • Saudis' Oil Price War Is Paying Off

    Those steps highlight how the Saudi-led OPEC decision on Nov. 27 to maintain output levels and protect its market share is having the desired effect -- pushing prices down so far that they threaten to curb output in the U.S. and other non-OPEC countries. Saudi Arabia, the most powerful member of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, will maintain that tack when the group next meets in June, according to some of the world’s biggest banks. “OPEC giving up on trying to control the price is working,” Francisco Blanch, head of commodities research at Bank of America Corp. in New York said by phone. The number of rigs drilling for oil in the U.S. dropped by 37 last week to 1,019, the fewest since July 2011, data from Baker Hughes Inc. showed Feb. 20.

  • The End of the Big Mac

    If you like to lunch on two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun, you’d better act fast: McDonald’s has announced plans to phase out the Big Mac. McDonald’s had announced that it had been testing menu cuts after finding that sales in November were down 4.6 percent compared to the previous year. With the rise of “fast casual” chains like Chipotle and Shake Shack, fast food is on the rocks, at least among the middle classes who can afford a $10 lunch instead of a $5 one. Chipotle enjoyed a 16.8 percent increase in sales at stores open more than a year in 2014, and shares of Shake Shack—a self-styled “anti-McDonald’s”—doubled on the day of its January IPO, despite the fact that Danny Meyer's burger business only operates at 63 locations.
