Has it covered 

click to enlarge HAS IT COVERED: The latest cover of National Geographic features an illustration of a historically recreated Machu Picchu, the famed Incan site in Peru. The University of Arkansas reports that the foundation of the design came courtesy of researchers at its Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies (CAST), who spent time in 2005 and 2009 scanning Machu Picchu with high-resolution laser scanning instruments, which generated the first hi-res 3D data on the ruins. For a better visualization of the CAST researchers' work, check out the 3D fly-over video of Machu Picchu on National Geographic's iPad edition.

  • The Kochs, Tom Cotton and their dislike of helping farmers

    The Koch political lobby is trying mightily to pretend it supports American farmers and that Tom Cotton's vote against the farm bill isn't a measure of farm support. A new report from a Democratic organization blows that dishonest messaging out of the water.
