What an amazing night we had with Old Blind Dogs!  I never thought we would sell out at Eagles Hall, but we filled every one of the 240 chairs and had to turn a few people away.  You were a mighty crowd, singing and hollering and clapping and dancing... the band said this was the best gig of the tour!  And they responded with an amazing display of musicianship.  I've seen the Dogs many times over the years, and this was just a stunning performance.

The news of Harvey Weinstein's expulsion from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences over the weekend is prompting victims to share their own experiences of sexual harassment and assault.

The academy ousted the powerful Hollywood producer over multiple abuse allegations, prompting social media users around the world to proclaim a simple idea: that sexual abuse is a common experience in women's lives.

It sounds like a joke, but, well — keep reading.

In December 2015, 64-year-old Daniel Rushing had just dropped off a friend at chemotherapy and was driving home an older woman from his church who worked at the 7-Eleven and would otherwise walk the 2 miles home.

On this week's edition of “Point & Click Radio,” the long-running KZYX computer show, Jim Heid and guest Toby Malina discussed many aspects of digital disaster preparedness.

This week’s wildfires have exposed weaknesses in the communications grid, from overwhelmed phone circuits to damaged or destroyed cell towers. Digital tools, including email and social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, have proven their value for sending and receiving information. But they’ve also been prone to inaccuracies.
