Global News

WATCH ABOVE: Hackers take control of moving Jeep from safety of their couch.

DETROIT — Fiat Chrysler has decided to recall about 1.4 million cars and trucks in the U.S. just days after two hackers detailed how they were able to take control of a Jeep Cherokee SUV over the Internet.

The company will update software to insulate the vehicles from being remotely controlled, and it said in a statement that hackers are committing a crime by manipulating vehicle without authorization.

The Rise of the ‘Good Divorce’

TIME

Most marriages don’t break up in a single, recognizable moment. It’s more like an irreversible fraying of the bonds between two people who are entwined in a thousand small ways. This is why separating can get so ugly, especially if children are involved. A former partner is now an adversary, a competitor for finite resources, someone to avoid.

Or at least that’s how the story used to go. Last year, when Gwyneth Paltrow split from Chris Martin, her husband of 10 years, she introduced us to the concept of “conscious uncoupling”–what her website described as a way for divorcing parents “to be partners in each other’s spiritual progress,” for the kids’ sake as well as their own. At the time, she was mocked, mostly for using such a superior-sounding phrase. But it’s become increasingly clear that the philosophy of collaboration has gained momentum beyond the celebrity sphere. For Gen X-ers…

The Weyanoke (and Nottoway/Tuscarora) origins of Granville’s Kersey Family

Native American Roots

Many of Granville County’s Native American families came to the county from Virginia to escape the intrusions of the British colony. The Bass,Evans, and Anderson families are just several examples of coastal Algonquian speaking peoples that followed this route. The Kersey family is no exception, and has roots in Surry County, VA among the Weyanoke, an Algonquian speaking people who allied and moved in with Nottoway and Tuscarora on their reservations. In this blog post I will trace the Kersey family from the Surry Co, VA area to Granville Co, NC.

Lumbee scholar J. Cedric Woods published an essay titled, “Lumbee Origins: The Weyanoke-Kersey Connection” in support of the Lumbee Tribe’s federal recognition bid. The full text of the essay can be found here and here (pdf format). The tribal origins of the Kersey family are relevant to the Lumbees because the tribe’s Lowry/Lowrie family of Robeson County, NC…

Supreme Court upholds subsidies in King v. Burwell

The aihfs blog

So what does this mean?

For those of you how haven’t been following this issue let me start with what this case was about.

When the Affordable Care Act was originally written, the thought was that all of the states would manage their own exchanges. In reality that is not what happened. There are currently 34 states who do not operate their own exchanges and rely on the federal exchange to provide coverage to their constituents.

Those who have been challenging the Affordable Care Act found a part of the law that would have completely undermined the intent of the Affordable Care Act. The part of the law that they challenged was that it was written that subsidies are only available to those who enrolled in a state exchange. According to them, those in the 34 states who enrolled in plans through the marketplace would not be eligible for the…

100 wood bison flown into Alaska to help re-establish species

Global News

WATCH: A hundred wood bison were flown into Shageluk, Alaska to help re-establish the species. Lauren Maxwell reports.

PORTAGE, Alaska – The first of 100 wood bison aimed at re-establishing a species that went extinct more than a century ago in Alaska were flown Sunday to a rural village.

Thirty 30 juveniles age 2 or younger were loaded into specially designed “bison boxes,” and trucked from the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center in Portage to Anchorage. They made a one-hour flight to Shageluk and arrived at about 1 p.m.

In several weeks, after 70 more wood bison reach Shageluk, and after they’ve become acclimated, they will be released as a group into the Inoko Flats, one of the areas of Alaska where wood bison once roamed.

Mike Miller, director of the conservation center, which has housed animals imported from Canada since 2008, said restoring an animal to its native habitat is…
