William Shatner has played an attorney, a starship captain, an alien and a Roman tax collector, among many other roles. Over the past half-century, the Canadian actor has performed on television, in commercials, in movies and on Broadway — and penned several novels.
He recently returned to Broadway for the first time in over 40 years with a new solo show, Shatner's World: We Just Live In It. In the 90-minute performance, Shatner talks about his childhood growing up in Montreal and reflects on his many acting roles with an assortment of photos and video clips.

I have bad news for you. You don't matter. Not very much. Not really at all. The darkness, that's what matters.
Many folks have heard of Dark Matter and Dark Energy. Most folks, however, can't tell you anything about them. They're dark. They're lurking out there. That's about it.
They're too important to leave at that. So, let's look at the "whys" and "wherefores" of both the Dark Duo. With today's post, I'm going to begin this exploration with a simple fact and its cosmic (literally) interpretation.
A member of the Free Syrian Army looks at the valley in the village of Ain al-Baida, in Syria's Idlib province, near the Turkish border, in December.

Abu Jafaar is the alias of a Syrian smuggler who has been dodging Syrian army patrols for the past several months.
Almost 25 years since the first organic farm took root in Hong Kong, the appeal of organic food is finally catching on. But restaurateurs, chefs, suppliers and organic experts say scant supply is leaving consumers hungry for more, and what is available still costs too much.
