Christianity: A Christianity Today author on getting rid of her own "tribalism," with lessons for all of us.
Relevant reports that the government of Nepal has made evangelism illegal.

Listverse tells us a lot about pumpkins.
FiveThirtyEight on which candy is most popular for Halloween, and why.
Philosophy: He Lives points out that free will is outside of nature, and of scientific explanations.

Wired reports that the Federal Communications Commission has made it easier for large companies to expand their media share. This means that one kind of political view may be unchallenged in some media markets. See also here.
FiveThirtyEight reports that the Trump Administration's first FBI crime report is much less informative than previous such annual reports.
Science: A dying female chimpanzee recognizes a former human associate. (Less than 3 minute video.)
Scientific American on whether global climate change is making hurricanes more dangerous.
FiveThirtyEight considers what would happen if there were no number 6. (This was based on a 5-year-old's question, and gets pretty deep into interesting questions.)
Listverse on how animals, of many kinds, have had large effects on the environment.
The Seattle Times on how monarch butterflies have been affected by warmer climate.
