Sept 22 (Reuters) - A magnitude 6.0 earthquake startled the residents of Melbourne on Wednesday morning - including one rare peregrine falcon shaken from a nest full of eggs. A live video stream of the nest, tucked into a ledge on an office building in the city's central business district, caught the moment the temblor struck, causing the spooked falcon to leap from its nest to the edge of the building, and then dive off it with a squawk.

What Are the Best Reads in Reese’s Book Club? Just ask Google Assistant!

We love the Nest Hub here at Slickdeals (read our full Nest Hub review here), but sometimes I wish Google Assistant could help me with more of life’s critical decisions.

In “The Humans,” Thanksgiving Finally Gets the Horror Movie It Deserves

Just as the angst of playwrights is potentially infinite, so too is the number of plays about big, fractious families. It’s the most reliable tradition of American dramaturgy we’ve got: generational tensions and long-simmering personal resentments come to a head as everyone gets together for an event like the holidays, a wedding or a funeral, with any uncomfortable boyfriends, girlfriends or in-laws forced into the role of reluctant interloper. Theater being predominantly written by people living in New York, that dynamic often reiterates itself through setting, as a city-dweller returns to their outer-metro childhood home or the loved ones they’ve left behind come back to visit. Distant fathers, overbearing mothers, sibling rivals, abuse, yelling, tears — it’s such stuff as Pulitzers are made of, from Inge to Albee to Shepard to Wilson.
