This rendering released by Moses Tucker Partners shows the plan for Premier Medical Plaza at the former location of a Kmart in Little Rock. Redevelopment of the former Kmart shopping center at 10901 N. Rodney Parham Road in Little Rock into a medical complex has grown into a $38 million project.

By Wire Report | PUBLISHED: March 2, 2019 at 9:38 pm | UPDATED: March 2, 2019 at 9:38 pm Sarah Kaplan · The Washington Post Aspiring lunar explorers, take heed – any newly discovered ridges on the Moon must be named for a geoscientist. If you want to name a landform on Saturn’s satellite Titan, you’d better be a fantasy or science fiction fan: Mountains and plains on the lake-covered moon are styled after places in Tolkien’s Middle Earth and Frank Herbert’s “Dune” series. And almost everything on Io, the eruptive moon of Jupiter, must have a name associated with fire, volcanoes, or Dante’s “Inferno.” So decrees the International Astronomical Union, the official arbiter of planetary and satellite nomenclature since 1919. As ever more powerful telescopes and ambitious new robotic missions add to the identified real estate of the solar system, the IAU’s brilliant, byzantine and sometimes marvelously nerdy naming … [Read more...] about The bizarre and brilliant rules for naming new stuff in space

A headline appears on a television screen on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, Wednesday, Dec. 26, 2018. Stocks are opening strongly higher on Wall Street Wednesday, with real estate, raw materials and energy stocks leading a broad rebound from Monday's steep losses. (AP Photo/Richard Drew) Wall Street's wild Christmas week rolls on. The Dow Jones Industrial Average slumped about 300 points early Thursday, a day after notching its biggest-ever point gain, as the market endures a bout of volatility to end what has been a topsy-turvy year. Technology companies, health care stocks and banks, all big gainers on Wednesday when the market had its best day in 10 years, accounted for much of the broad slide. Energy stocks also fell as the price of U.S. crude oil slid 1.5 percent a day after posting its biggest increase in two years. The S&P 500 index fell 30 points, or 1.3 percent, to 2,436 as of 10 a.m. Eastern Time. The Dow slid 295 points, or 1.3 percent, to 22,582.
