Tinder and the Dawn of the Dating Apocalypse

quote [ As romance gets swiped from the screen, some twentysomethings aren’t liking what they see. ]

For me this is like reading something by Jane Goodall. Despite being genetic compatriots to these sort of people there's just so much unintelligible awfulness and confusing mystery about the way they live their lives to me.

All Aboard the Nazi War Train

quote [ The German Heavy Gustav was the largest gun ever built. It was more than 150 feet long, 40 feet tall and weighed almost 1,500 tons. The steel giant Krupp A.G. made only two, and neither worked well. ]

Another story of the massive changes to technology and conventional military tactics that occurred during World War II

Taiwan Will Have a Female President in 2016

quote [ For the first time ever, two female candidates will square off in Taiwan?s presidential election. ]

It's interesting to me that Asia is famously so socially conservative and yet not only have many countries there had females leaders (India, Pakistan, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and South Korea to name a few) but Taiwan is now shaping to have a female-only presidential election.

Also, I hate that TIME referred to Taiwan as Chinese and their piece regarding Tsai was very poorly researched but it still seemed an appropriate thumbnail.

So What Else Has North Korea Been Up To This Year?

quote [ North Korea continued efforts to develop its missile and nuclear capabilities during 2014. Although the opacity of this Northeast Asian country makes any attempt to meaningfully assess the strategic potential of either North Korean program a difficult task, open source information can provide some insights into the progress it has made. Of particular importance are its advancements in nuclear infrastructure, the quantities of nuclear fuel produced, and the country?s ballistic missile program. ]

A sober summary of the general progress of North Korea's big projects for the year. It's not really a primer on the general state of North Korea in any sense and just focuses on new advancements for the year in a few key areas so maybe the info will just be a bunch of random acronyms for some.
