Why do people enjoying spoiling? We could tell you what we think now. But that would spoil the rest of this story.

Libraries in many big cities often serve as de facto homeless shelters — a place for people living on the streets to find quiet and warmth — and it can make others, there to just check out books or videos, uncomfortable. 
KQED’s Scott Shafer reports that’s why the San Francisco Public Library has hired a full-time social worker. She spends her days roaming the library floors, keeping an eye out for regulars who look like they could use her help. And sometimes she hires the formerly homeless patrons she’s helped, like Joe Bank, to do outreach under her supervision.

    The National Zoo has teamed up with the band Portugal. The Manto create an “endangered song" - a song "manufactured to go extinct unless it’s reproduced."

    It currently exists on just 400 polycarbonate records — symbolizing the ~400 Sumatran tigers left in the world.  Those records will degrade every time they are played until the song can no longer be heard.

    "The song will go extinct unless it’s digitally produced. The Sumatran tiger will go extinct unless we take action."

    400 people have received records, and they plan to digitize and share the song (and their conservation message).  It’s a clever awareness campaign - and I’m looking forward to hearing the song!

In today’s interview with Seth Meyers Terry asked him about his transition from Saturday Night Live, where he spent 12 years, to hosting Late Night. Terry asked Seth how it feels to move on:  

"I do [miss it]. I miss it a little bit less every day, which is nice. The thing I was so worried about leaving SNL was just the family and the routine and all of the wonderful people that I got to spend so much time with. And obviously as you build a new show like we have, you find there are other really lovely people that you get to sort of build a new family with. I do miss the rush of SNL and on Saturday at 11:30 when I’m sitting at home I feel phantom limbs, if that’s the right expression, of just wanting to be out there.”

    I’m writing this while waiting in Tokyo for our final flight home to Okinawa. I’m trying to find the words to describe Monday’s race experience but it isn’t easy.

    The morning of the race, I woke up early to check my Facebook and email accounts. I could not believe the number of “good luck”…
