This week also brings us news of the discovery of this new species of pistol shrimpSynalpheus pinkfloydi, named for its giant pink claw. Wish you were here…unless you were an angry pistol shrimp!


Making us feel grrrrreat right now is news that Fight for the Future is providing seed funding for “A-Teams,” letting real people apply with their own ventures to become professional activists. Oh snap!
