"FATAL heroin overdoses in America have almost tripled in three years. More than 8,250 people a year now die from heroin. At the same time, roughly double that number are dying from prescription opioid painkillers, which are molecularly similar. Heroin has become the fallback dope when an addict can’t afford, or find, pills. Total overdose deaths, most often from pills and heroin, now surpass traffic fatalities. • If these deaths are the measure, we are arguably in the middle of our worst drug plague ever, apart from cigarettes and alcohol. • And yet this is also our quietest drug plague. Strikingly little public violence accompanies it. This has muted public outrage. Meanwhile, the victims — mostly white, well-off and often young — are mourned in silence, because their parents are loath to talk publicly about how a cheerleader daughter hooked for dope, or their once-star athlete son overdosed in a fast-food restaurant bathroom."

"As Shakespeare would say, 'We have seen better days.' • The American Council of Trustees and Alumni has found that less than 8 percent of the nation's top universities require English majors to take a course focused on Shakespeare.
"It's not just the size of objects in space that boggles the mind — it's the vastness of the timescales on which events in space occur. Pluto takes 248 Earth years to orbit the sun. To put it another way, the entirety of US history has occurred during a single Plutonian orbit. When Pluto was last in its current location, we hadn't invented aviation, let alone spaceflight. This map was released by NASA's New Horizons team in anticipation of the probe becoming the first spacecraft to visit Pluto in July.
"Given the ubiquity of mobile devices being used by students in their university, a group of lecturers formed an action-learning group to learn collaboratively about enhancing their teaching with mobile pedagogies."
