“Last year, a small group of researchers unveiled their plans to sequence the DNA of every species on Earth in the next 10 years. The daunting task, known as the Earth BioGenome Project, would actually only include eukaryotic species (so plants, animals, and fungi—no bacteria), but is still a mammoth undertaking that would require mapping the genomes of more than 1.5 million species. As of Thursday, they’ve officially begun.”

Remembering the Morris Worm, the world’s first cybersecurity incident.

“Here’s the story of a TV renovation we can’t wait to see: Six original stars of The Brady Bunch came together to help HGTV launch a new series that aims to fix up the real-life Brady Bunch house.”

“I know this much: MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki is the GOAT of election night coverage.”

Somia El-Rowmeim is a damn good American. (Remember how in the early Dubya Bush days, Muslim Americans were seen as a rising demographic for the Republican Party? Funny how these things go.)

Things to watch over the Thanksgiving holiday.
