Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin If you are feeling a little too hot at work (in a temperature and not a sexiness sense), should you just lay on the floor on your belly and spread out your arms and legs? After all, that’s what many squirrels seem to be doing these days. With temperatures at the too freaking hot levels in recent week, squirrels and other animals have been doing a lot of “splooting” to beat the heat. Now, you may be wondering whether “splooting” is a made-up word because spell-check recommends using “looting” instead. But “looting” at work would be very different from “splooting” there, and the New York City (NYC) Department of Parks & Recreation defined “splooting” as “stretching out” on “cool surfaces to reduce body heat” on a tweet on Tuesday: As you can see in the tweet, another word for splooting is “heat dumping,” which I described for Forbes about a year ago . By stretching yourself out, you are trying to maximize the … [Read more...] about Can Splooting Help Beat The Heat? Here’s Why Squirrels Are Heat Dumping

Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) director Christopher Wray is running the agency at a time when even J. Edgar Hoover would blush at the FBI’s brash anti-American tactics. Hoover’s FBI infamously spied on Americans and gathered intelligence on high-ranking officials like sitting U.S. presidents. But Hoover never raided the home of former President Richard Nixon after his involvement in the 1972 break-in of the Democratic National Committee ( DNC ) headquarters located in the Watergate Office Building. Unlike Wray’s FBI, which raided former President Donald Trump’s personal Mar-a-Lago home for over ten hours on Monday. The FBI removed several boxes reportedly linked to the U.S. Department of Justice ( DOJ ) investigation into whether Trump mishandled White House documents — a significantly lesser offense than Nixon.
