Naegleria appears to be spreading northward. The amoeba is found in warm, fresh water and can infect swimmers causing a fatal brain infection. Climate change is likely playing a role as US states, here Nebraska, report their first cases.
When it comes to conflicts of interest, Supreme Court justices only have to follow the honor system. It isn’t working (looking at you, Justice Clarence Thomas). I’ve got a bill to overhaul the recusal process and make them finally follow a binding code of ethics.
