    A distant cloud briefly blocked the sunrise on Aug. 4 near the Kansas-Colorado line. (NWS Goodman)  An unusual phenomenon was captured last week both by a photographer and in satellite images. Just before 6 a.m. on Aug. 4, the sun had risen above the horizon on Kansas’ western plains — but it was obscured by a thunderhead, the cumulonimbus cloud tower associated with a thunderstorm. The 35,000-foot-tall cloud cast a shadow over 75 miles of northwest Kansas. The photo taken by a meteorologist at the National Weather Service office in Goodland shows a fan of darker blue in the lightening morning sky.

    (CNN)When the flu pandemic hit the United States in 1918, medical care was a privilege reserved for the elite. But the widespread outbreak of a deadly virus did not adhere to social hierarchies.

The psychological pressures that Covid-19 has brought — isolation and physical distancing, fast-rising unemployment and economic loss — have triggered what amounts to a secondary pandemic...

    The racism that carried slavery and Jim Crow laws continues to impact virtually every aspect of American culture.

    The Last of Us , released by Naughty Dog and PlayStation in 2013 to cacophonous acclaim by the critical establishment, is perhaps the most significant exemplar of one of the biggest trends of its era of gaming: the dad game. Spawned (so to speak) by the fact that many upstart gaming studio heads began becoming parents in the early 2010s, the dad game centers on the relationship between a father and a child, using the language of games to emphasize that supposedly sacral protective bond. The child is usually a daughter—a character that, using the language of patriarchy, is defined as much by her vulnerability as anything else—and the games, being preoccupied with violence, are eager to utilize that character...
