Twitter rants help scientists study red tide

It's no shocker that we turn to Twitter to complain about the effects of red tide: things like itchy eyes, coughing and dead fish.Yes, but: Researchers studying our first major red tide event since social media became ubiquitous have found evidence that Twitter can be a trustworthy and fairly specific reflection of red tide's impacts.How it happened: They compared Tweet activity during 2018's red tide — both geo-tagged posts and using locations from user profiles — to official K. brevis cell counts and dead fish levels and found a strong correlation.Why it matters: Researchers say crowd-sourced data could be super useful in assessing and responding to red tide and potentially to other natural disasters.

Staff Rants: The holidays

It’s the start of another holiday season and with it another year of adjectival inequality. Brace yourself for “merry Christmas” galore while every other celebration settles for “happy.” Happy Hanukkah, happy New Year and happy holidays. How long are we supposed to tolerate this blatant double standard in our greetings? And let’s not kid ourselves about why this is happening: corporations save a fortune in printing costs by just reusing the same adjective over and over instead of giving each holiday the semantic uniqueness it deserves. This is to say nothing of how maintaining the exceptionality of Christmas helps perpetuate Christian hegemony in the English-speaking world. Nativity? More like nativism. So this holiday season, let’s challenge the status quo and drag the Notzrim down to our level by wishing your friends, family and platonic loved ones a happy Christmas.

Column: Ranting paused for a month of holiday cheer

Well, the holiday season is upon us. It’s a trying time for some. There is a common expectation that we transform into happy, cheery people from the day after Thanksgiving until the day after Christmas. Then we can revert to our grumpy selves. What is with this hopelessly futile expectation?...

Rants & Raves, Dec. 3, 2021

I think the county or Florida needs to do one of two things for Ormond Beach. Either completely remove bicycles from John Anderson Drive or make a bike path. It is very dangerous. No more gambling. I see once again the State of “Floriduh” wants to bring more casinos and...

SCENE - Rants and Raves: Merry COVID Christmas! Here's to everything I haven't gotten done.

Christmas 2021 will be a holiday season unlike any other! Most of us weren’t even sure we’d survive the first six months of the pandemic, let alone make it this far. We’ve grown snippy, impatient and generally disagreeable during all this time alone. Worse yet, for some of us, we spent an extraordinary amount of time with our family members in a confined space. All of this spells disaster for what is normally a stress-filled time of year to begin with.
