HTC One S for T-Mobile gets more official, coming April 25

T-Mobile One S

If you've been waiting for news about T-Mobile's HTC One S, you're in the right place -- they have just announced availability and pricing of the sleek new phone, and the good news is that it's not months away. The One S will be available at T-Mobile stores nationwide starting April 25, and it checks in at $199 with a new agreement. 

The One S looks to be one of the sexiest phones HTC has ever put out, being super thin, with great specs and Sense 4.0. HTC knows that the road to the top of the Android food chain isn't easy, but with devices like this and the rest of the HTC One line they are on the right track. The review is coming shortly, but in the meantime have a gander at the press release, after the break.

Study finds way more emperor penguins than previously thought

New satellite data reveals that emperor penguins are far more abundant in Antarctica than previously estimated.?

Emperor penguins in Antarctica are far more plentiful than previously thought, a study that used extremely high-resolution imagery snapped by satellites has revealed.

Skip to next paragraph

"It surprised us that we approximately doubled the population estimate," said Peter Fretwell, a scientist with the British Antarctic Survey and lead author of a paper published today in the journal PLoS One.

Fretwell said that in contrast to previous estimates, which put?emperor penguin?numbers somewhere between 270,000 and 350,000 birds, the new research counted 595,000 birds.

Antarctic research is challenging, since humans can essentially only work on the frigid continent for three months out of the year, and nailing down hard numbers for the iconic birds has proved difficult.

Bird census

The last overall population estimate, done in 1992, found that approximately 135,000 to 175,000 emperor penguins lived around the continent.?[See Antarctica's iconic emperor penguins in action.]

Fretwell and a team of researchers melded several kinds of high-definition imagery captured by satellites to arrive at their new number. They sharpened the images to allow them to differentiate between penguins, shadows on the ground, and the penguins' poop, which is plentiful enough to show up in satellite pictures.

The team also used actual ground counts of penguins in their analysis. "The ground counts told us the density of penguin clusters, and we used this to multiply the area of penguins calculated by our satellite image analysis into penguin numbers," Fretwell told OurAmazingPlanet in an email.

The analysis not only doubled the previous estimate of emperor penguins, but also uncovered seven previously undiscovered colonies.

Fretwell said this kind of research is important, particularly in the face of a changing climate.

Penguin future

There are concerns that changes to Antarctica's ice heralds a difficult future for emperor penguins. The birds breed on the Antarctic sea ice during the brutal winter months, but earlier spring melts may pose threats to the more northern colonies, according to a statement from the British Antarctic Survey.

88% Miss Bala

Miss Bala (Mexico's foreign film entry for 2011) is an unwavering, startling, and deeply tense movie about one woman's tragic and unwilling association with a powerful drug cartel. Laura (Stephanie Sigman) wants to be the next Miss Baja California, but she's unwittingly pulled into a life of crime after she witnesses a gang hit. The cartel ensures that Laura wins the beauty pageant and becomes a courier for them. The movie takes a Lars von Trier approach to storytelling, putting its heroine through a torture chamber of anxiety and terror. This woman only wants to escape the hell she has accidentally found herself a part of, but every attempt to escape, be it going to the police or confessing assassination plots to the intended targets, gets her corralled back into the fray. For Laura, there is no escape. The movie packs a near-constant surge of paranoia, as we fear that at any time something awful will happen. In fact it's usually only a matter of time. Laura is more a symbol of the collateral damage of Mexico's billion-dollar drug war than a character, and she kind of becomes a numb zombie by the movie's latter half, perhaps accepting her doomed fate. Director Gerado Naranjo favors long unwinding takes and handheld cameras, which add a gritty realism and sense of compounding dread to the picture. The movie has an unflinching level of realism to it that makes it all the more haunting, stripping the romanticism from a life of crime. Much like Italy's heralded crime film Gomorrah, this bleak but impassioned movie shows the inescapable tentacles of organized crime and gives a face to innocents caught in the middle. Miss Bala is a testament to the hidden toll of a nation at war with itself. Nate's Grade: B+

'Perfect recipe' for wildfires as season starts early

By Miguel Llanos,

The U.S.?wildfire season that typically starts in late spring has taken off this month, with crews tackling fires up and down the East Coast in recent days.

Twenty-five?states, all east of the Rockies,?posted their warmest January-March periods on record, and many Northeastern states have had their driest starts ever.

"Those two factors, and recent wind, is a perfect recipe for fire" in the eastern U.S., Weather Channel meteorologist Mike Seidel told NBC News.

?Humidity also also been low, and there's lots of fuel in the form of brush to burn.

"We haven't seen many rainstorms nor snowstorms and all the vegetation that grew up rapidly from?last winter's rainfall is just all?dry and ready to burn," noted meteorologist Janice Huff of New York's WNBC-TV.

On Wednesday, the immediate threat shifted west as?"red flag warnings" advising of severe fire potential were posted for parts of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming.

Those states have seen above average temperatures, and some are also in drought.

The eastern U.S., meanwhile, wasn't completely off the hook on Wednesday.?Parts of Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia?and West Virginia were facing red flag warnings.

Moreover, New Jersey saw a new brush fire on Wednesday just off the state turnpike near the Izod Center arena.

On Tuesday,?crews battled brush and wildfires in several eastern states.

On New York's Long Island, two brush fires merged into one that consumed three homes and nine business properties across 1,000 acres before firefighters got the upper hand.

Seth Wenig / AP

This home on New York's Long Island was among three destroyed Tuesday by a brush fire.

In Florida, most?of which is in drought,?89 wildfires were burning as of Tuesday, according to the Florida Forest Service.

Eighteen fires were larger than 100 acres and the largest, a lightning-sparked blaze?in the?Osceola National Forest near the border with Georgia, more than doubled on Tuesday to?25,000 acres burned.

National Interagency Coordination Center

Across the nation, the next few months do not look any better.

"Severe to extreme drought conditions continue for much of eastern New Mexico, western Texas, parts of the upper Midwest and much of the Southeast coast," the National Interagency Fire Center said in its outlook posted on April 1. "Worsening drought was occurring over much of the Southwest including California and the Great Basin."

"During May through July above normal temperatures are likely across most of the Southwest and Great Basin, and the Gulf and East coast states from Texas to Maine," it added.

National Interagency Coordination Center

As for Florida, it "will remain the highest fire risk area into May," the center warned.

NBC's Tom Costello contributed to this report.

Arranged Marriage and Intermarriage | Psychology Today

In a previous post of mine concerning arranged marriages,?I tried to demystify the practice for an American audience. A recent comment?by a blogger who was born in India and is now in the United States emphasized the downside of arranged marriages, especially the loss of freedom by the parties involved. His discussion of the matter on his blog?is worth reading.

Although the example I used in my post was from India, I was actually trying to discuss the phenomenon of arranged marriages in general, not just in India, because it is so difficult for Americans to understand. However, the comment raised another issue that I?d like to discuss: the difference between disapproving of a custom in an unfamiliar culture versus disapproving of a custom in one?s own.

In his comment, the blogger wrote, ?On understanding the drawbacks of arranged marriages, I am sure no one in their right mind would pick Indian arranged marriage system as an ideal to copy.? I don?t think the United States is in any danger of adopting the Indian arranged marriage system. However, I do see a difference between Americans disapproving of an Indian custom because it is different from what we do, and Indians making their own efforts to change it in ways that work for them. For example, segregation and bans on interracial marriage in the United States during much of the 20th century are in some ways parallels to the limitations of caste and arranged marriages in India. (Americans believe you are born into a race that you cannot change and discourage marriages between races; Indians believe that you are born into a caste that you cannot change, and discourage marriages between castes.) The outside world often disapproved of the American practices, but we were eventually able to change them ourselves.

Agrarian societies, like the pre-Civil War American South and much of India today, tend to produce extremes of economic inequality, accompanied by justificatory ideologies, such as race in the United States and caste in India. When society changes rapidly, as is currently the case in India, it is to be expected that many cultural practices will also change once they cease to serve a useful function or become counterproductive.

In societies where many people live in extreme poverty, life is too precarious for individuals to survive indefinitely without assistance from others. They may need help during hard times from relatives or religious institutions, and preexisting social forms offer them security in exchange for surrendering autonomy in various areas of their life: for example, choosing a spouse or occupation. Traditional practices generally have a stronger grip in rural areas and among people with less formal education, in comparison to educated cosmopolitans living in large cities.
