For safety concerns, the U.S. government has issued travel advisories on several countries. Here are 10 of them:
According to an article published by MSN, the U.S. State Department has a standing “do not travel” advisory on Libya. The country has been unstable since its dictator was toppled in 2011. The government is unable to control crime, for the most part, and extremist groups are known to target foreign travelers, particularly those from the U.S.

Having lived in Los Alamos for 30 years, I had heard about the tent rocks near Cochiti Pueblo but had never been to see the rock formations. During a recent visit to Los Alamos, we took a day and discovered what this park was all about.

A happy La Fête Nationale for all you French folk out there, or “Bastille Day” for we non-French speakers. Americans have camaraderie with you in having our independence day so near your own, as we benefited the early assistance of the likes of the Marquis de Lafayette in our own struggle for independence. Viva la France! … y’all. Let Le Marseillaise ring all around.
In recalling these days of independence, one cannot help but admire that dogged determination and self-sacrifice offered by those who were in the midst of those landmark historical times and events. A difficult way

Jared Shipley is the new youth minister at the Los Alamos Church of Christ.
“Young people need a place where they can practice their faith, question it and grow in it,” Shipley said. “Church can’t be a social club. Christians have to go deeper than that.”
He plans learning and service projects, in addition to teen social events.
Shipley, 25, and his wife Sydnee moved to Los Alamos in late May to begin work with the church’s youth group. He had recently graduated

Since the causes of behavior are cast in terms of “contingencies,” the time has come to make some sense of the term “contingency.”
This term stands in generically for the range of “causes” of behavior the way other terms cannot, such as “stars” in astrology, or “selves” in psychology.

Hmmm … in the news this weekend is that Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos’ divorce is finalized. Since MacKenzie will no doubt get a large chunk of the Bezos fortune, that’ll likely drop ol’ Jeff down the “richest men” category a few notches. But … I doubt that he’ll have trouble finding a date nonetheless. MacKenzie, either. Too bad, though; it’s always a sadness to see a couple lose the love with which they began.
Such news highlights the truth of the old adage: “The best things in life are free.” Jeff and MacKenzie’s earlier mutual love cost nothing, and yet one might speculate that
