In December 2010, law enforcement found four bodies along a scrub-covered stretch of highway on the south coast of Long Island. The following spring, six more sets of human remains were found in the same area. Six of the victims have been identified as young women who were sex workers. Four, including a toddler and a person with male anatomy remain unidentified. In late 2011, authorities announced they were looking for one murderer responsible for all of the deaths. A decade later, the mystery, which became known as the Long Island serial killer case, remains unsolved. A new podcast looks at why. Hosted by crime podcast veterans Billy Jensen ( The Murder Squad ) and Alexis Linkletter ( The First Degree ), Unraveled: Long Island Serial Killer — and its accompanying TV special premiering March 9th on Discovery+ — examines how corruption in the Suffolk County Police Department may have stymied the investigation of one of the biggest homicide cases in Long Island … [Read more...] about Did Police Corruption Derail the Long Island Serial Killer Investigation?
Someday, high schoolers may have to decide if they should fulfill their language requirement with Spanish or Dothraki. The words spoken by Khal Drogo and the rest of the Dothraki people on Game of Thrones is a conlang (constructed language), as this TED Ed video explains. Dothraki joins the ranks of other conlangs like Klingon ( Star Trek ), Na’vi ( Avatar ) and Elvish ( Lord of the Rings ).

What holiday dinner would be complete without the texting teenager, the drunk uncle, the eccentric aunt, the hideous Christmas sweaters and the new girlfriend as an awkward plus one? Now what if these guests were all animals? Not just poorly mannered, mind you, but actual furry, four-legged creatures. Freshpet, a natural pet food company, launched a short video this week with just such a setup. Thirteen dogs and one cat took their places at an elaborate seasonal feast for an ad that’s racked up 170,000 views on YouTube in less than two days. Since videos of dogs eating with human hands have become Internet sensations, the brand and video producers, shareability , decided to double down on the concept. They used mostly shelter animals for the shoot, and hired trainers and wranglers to serve as their expressive paws. Other props like bow ties, eyeglasses and jewelry give the animals more realistic and often ridiculous human qualities. While there’s plenty of eating, or, … [Read more...] about Freshpet’s doggie Christmas tribute will give you paws
