Orlando victim reunites with cop who saved him
Five days after the shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, the injured victims are on the road to recovery (and likely facing massive medical bills, so, you know, donate if you can).
Angel Colon was shot three times at the club, then was trampled, as others tried to run for their lives. Now, in a video from Inside Edition, he meets Orlando Officer Omar Delgado, who rescued him from inside the club. They hug and Delgado has (click on the title to read the full article).
How They Got Their Guns
A vast majority of guns used in 16 recent mass shootings, including two guns believed to be used in the Orlando attack, were bought legally and with a federal background check. At least eight gunmen had criminal histories or documented mental health problems that did not prevent them from obtaining their weapons. (Click on the title to read the full article).

The World Nears Peak Fossil Fuels for Electricity
The way we get electricity is about to change dramatically, as the era of ever-expanding demand for fossil fuels comes to an end—in less than a decade. That’s according to a new forecast by Bloomberg New Energy Finance that plots out global power markets for the next 25 years.
Call it peak fossil fuels, a turnabout that’s happening not because we’re running out of coal and gas, but because we’re finding cheaper alternatives. Demand is peaking ahead of schedule because electric cars and affordable battery storage for (click on the title to read the full article).
Scientists map the global spread of HIV – through the Western world and beyond – for the first time
The major study, published in the Journal of Molecular Epidemiology and Evolutionary Genetics of Infectious Diseases (MEEGID), finds that HIV travelled from the US to Western Europe on a number of occasions, whereas Central and Eastern Europe remained isolated for the most part of the early epidemic.
Analysis of thousands of genome sequences shows that geopolitical events such as the fall of the Iron Curtain had a big impact on human migration patterns within Europe and thus the spread of the virus through the continent.
Co-lead author Dr Gkikas Magiorkinis, of the Department of Zoology at Oxford University, said: (Click the title to read the full article).
Leo headed to court over ‘Wolf of Wall Street’
Leonardo DiCaprio’s next role? On the hot seat.
The Oscar winner will be deposed in a $25 million defamation lawsuit over his 2013 blockbuster “Wolf of Wall Street,” a Long Island federal-court judge ruled Thursday.
DiCaprio, who earned an Academy Award nomination for best actor for his role as sleazy businessman Jordan Belfort in the flick, is set to be grilled by lawyers for Andrew Greene. Greene sued Paramount Pictures and others in 2014 claiming the flick portrayed him as a toupee-wearing, prostitute-loving degenerate character named Nicky “Rugrat” Koskoff.
Earlier this week, Greene’s lawyers, Aaron Goldsmith and Stephanie Ovadia, indicated that (Click on the title to read the full article).

Why Your Dirty, Lifeless Office Is Killing You
If you think your work is actually making you dumb, you might be onto something.
Researchers at Florida State University recently conducted and published a study on the relationship between a dirty, lifeless workspace and cognition, demonstrating that the former can very much affect the latter.
“Psychologists say that the brain is a muscle, while industrial hygienists point to chemicals in the work environment that may cause decline,” said Joseph Grzywacz, the Norejane Hendrickson Professor of Family and Child Sciences and lead researcher on the study. “There are real things in the workplace that can shape cognitive function: some that you can see or touch, and others you can’t. We showed that (click on the title to read the full article).

Phoebe Snetsinger lived a life that proves middle-aged bird-watchers can be action heroes
When Phoebe Snetsinger was diagnosed with melanoma in 1981 and given less than a year to live, she knew how she wanted to spend it: seeking out birds. Snetsinger, honored in today’s Google Doodle, exceeded expectations.
She lived 18 more years. She didn’t die of cancer. And by the time Snetsinger, who would have been 85 today, died in 1999, she’d seen about 85 percent of all of the bird species in the world. She called her autobiography Birding on Borrowed Time.
Bird-watching — or birding, as its practitioners prefer — might seem like a relaxing (click on the title to read the full article).
