The app boasts over 10 million matches, but there’s a dark side of Tinder one needs to swipe through to find their true love. I have never used the app before, but curiosity killed the cat. I downloaded the app in hopes of coming across a few characters using the platform, and it wasn’t hard ー at all.

Social media didn’t kill email — but it did change it

Too much digital ink has been spilled over the apparent demise of email. “What’s to replace email,” and “why email is dead,” are all well-worn topics musing over a thin premise: social media will replace the well-worn 45-year-old medium.

In 1905, an Ohio farmer survived a railroad accident that cost him both of his legs.

The company grew, surviving the Great Depression and a fire that destroyed the plant, and still thrives today in rural Ohio. Few who work there now might remember the curious footnote in the company’s history that occurred during World War II, when the rebuilt factory was diversified to build parts for PT boats and B-17 bombers.
