Another wonderful and personal story of a lady whose parents vanished in the Alps during a storm and then 75 years later the bodies are found…
What happens when climate changes quickly in a previously frozen place, when the earth heats up and the mountains melt? In the high Swiss Alps, here’s what happens: The ice gives up the bodies—and the secrets—of the past.
This may make you emotional, you have been warned!
Well, you will love this if you are an NBA fan. And you are into memes. This is hilarious stuff!

I agree with most of this article by the way…
Google and Facebook are easy scapegoats, but companies have been collecting, selling, and reusing your personal data for decades, and now that the public has finally noticed, it’s too late. The personal-data privacy war is long over, and you lost.
It’s a shorthand comfort to blame Google for this state of affairs. It puts a face on the scourge, and it targets an enemy that feels worthy. But the opponent in the data-privacy invasion is not a comic-book enemy of fixed form, one that can be cornered, compromised, and defeated. Instead it’s a hazy murk, a chilling, Lovecraftian murmur that can’t be seen, let alone touched, let alone vanquished. Even “the Cloud” isn’t the right metaphor, because pumping out its gaseous poison only draws in a new, cold draft of it from sources unseen. If not websites, pharmaceuticals. If not location data, household goods. If not likes or shares, bank balances and neighborhood demographics. Your data is everywhere, and nowhere, and you cannot escape it, or what it might yet do to you.
And I leave you with these…
