He'd never seen his online support – fueled by celebrities like John Mayer, the community at Reddit, and probably your mom's Facebook "like" – translate into two million votes in mere days..."

"...The flapping wings of a butterfly can cause a hurricane on the other side of the world, or so goes the official definition of the "butterfly effect." To me, however, it will always refer to the crushed butterfly on the boot of a time-traveling hunter in Ray Bradbury's "A Sound of Thunder," which in elementary school sent me down the rabbit hole of time travel theory. In the story, a man goes back in time to shoot a doomed-to-die-anyway dinosaur but accidentally steps off the path, killing a butterfly and irreparably changing the future...."

"...The Travel Channel’s Food Paradise, a show dedicated to visiting must-visit eateries across the country, will be filming an episode on the patio of this local beloved bierhall and bakeshop, and they want you to be part of the action. While, in a piece of bad news for day drinkers, the patio will be closed for filming until happy hour begins at 5pm, the bakery will be open and slinging coffee and pastries all day, so you can get all juiced up on buttery tiger claws before making your big break..."
"...With the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s updated Great Texas Wildlife Trail driving maps, traveling on the wild side of Texas just got a whole lot easier. The new maps and an interactive website mean it’s even easier to discover the best of Texas wildlife viewing areas..."

"...Hills, valleys, and rivers dominated, with land that alternated between harsh limestone (perfect for Rioja's grapes) and fertile farmland.

Adding the Green Line was cited last year by the Transit Working Group (now inactive) of the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization as an effective long-term strategy to reduce the region's vehicle miles traveled (VMT) – and thereby reduce Central Texans' cost of living, air pollution, and greenhouse-gas emissions..."
