5 Things to Read Today

The holiday stress is real, y’all.

That Humble Bundle I linked to is a magnificent deal if you want to do any kind of video editing. I may snag that one for myself. You get Vegas Pro for $20. That’s unbelievable – it’s a $400 program.

It sounds like they’re voting on the GOP tax bill today. If you haven’t called your senators and representatives, now’s a good time to do that. You can use CallYourRep.co to get the numbers.

Daily Reading List

Mother Jones: 7 Years Before Russia Hacked the Election, Someone Did the Same Thing to Climate Scientists
“Climate change deniers claimed the messages showed scientists engaging in misconduct and fabricating a warming pattern that didn’t really exist. Multiple investigations ultimately exonerated the researchers, but not before a media firestorm undercut public confidence in the science—just as world leaders were meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark, to attempt to rein in greenhouse gas emissions.”

Buzzfeed News: The Senate’s Russia Investigation Is Now Looking Into Jill Stein
“When asked Monday what the committee was looking for from the Stein campaign, North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr, the committee’s chairman, responded, ‘collusion with the Russians.’ Burr said that the committee is ‘just starting’ its work investigating two campaigns, but did not elaborate.”

New York Times: 2 Navy Airmen and an Object That ‘Accelerated Like Nothing I’ve Ever Seen’
“Cmdr. David Fravor and Lt. Cmdr. Jim Slaight were on a routine training mission 100 miles out into the Pacific when the radio in each of their F/A-18F Super Hornets crackled: An operations officer aboard the U.S.S. Princeton, a Navy cruiser, wanted to know if they were carrying weapons.”

Polygon: Humble Bundle’s latest deal is a fantastic package for aspiring YouTubers
“It takes quite a bit of time and effort to become a full-fledged YouTube creator, and when you add in the cost of professional editing software, it can also become pretty expensive. Humble Bundle’s newest deal has a couple of great editing software packages that, if you or someone you know is serious about getting into creating YouTube for the purpose of monetization, is a great place to start.”

Lifehacker: Resolve to Go to the Gym in 2018
“Getting ready to hit the gym in January? Here’s your starter pack of all the information you need to walk into the gym with confidence and build a habit that will last all year long.”
