Why I Love Poker

love of poker

I love poker. Unfortunately, I haven’t played online in a while. The site that I use did a complete overhaul of their software. Not only is the layout completely different, albeit better, but part of the overhaul meant changing their server provider. So, you had to take a “scenic route” to get the update by …

5 Countries Threatened by Climate Change

countries threatened by climate change

It’s easy to say there’s no scientific consensus on climate change when it’s not your home that’s in jeopardy. Even though the United States isn’t going to be swallowed by rising sea levels (well, not exactly true when you consider Kivalina, Alaska), the country as a whole isn’t at risk of nonexistence.
