- Seas rise, trees die: Climate change before your eyes
By WAYNE PARRY, Associated Press - Tuesday Aug 1, 2017
PORT REPUBLIC, N.J. (AP) — They're called "ghost forests" — dead trees along vast swaths of coastline invaded by rising seas, something scientists call one of the most visible markers of climate change.The process has occurred naturally for thousands of years, but it has accelerated in recent decades as polar ice melts and raises sea levels, scientists say, pushing salt water farther inland and killing trees in what used to be thriving freshwater plains.[...] scientists agree the startling sight of dead trees in once-healthy areas is an easy-to-grasp example of the consequences of climate change.[...] the death of the trees makes soil microbes release nitrogen, which adds to nitrogen already occurring from other sources, including agricultural runoff, to contribute to algae blooms and reduced oxygen that can sicken or kill fish.Seas off the East Coast have risen by 1.3 feet over the last 100 years, said Ben Horton, a Rutgers University professor and expert on sea level rise.Marcelo Ardon, a biology professor at North Carolina State University, studied one site called the Palmetto Pear Tree Preserve on Albemarle Sound in North Carolina from 2006 to 2009.In southern New Jersey, the most affected species is the Atlantic white cedar, which was a mainstay of the shipbuilding industry because of its resistance to rot.

He's here to fill that hole in the marketplace with exactly what you need, because, well, what else is he supposed to do now that he's not on tour?
The singer is partnering with Hanes and celebrity stylist Karla Welch to bring a variety of white t-shirts to the masses for an impressive cost of $30.
Nah, this is not a joke.
The collaboration came into fruition when Bieber approached Welch and asked for a white shirt albeit slightly longer than the normal. According to Vogue, Welch went to town with a bunch of Hanes shirts and resurfaced with exactly what Bieber needed. That spurred a realization that well, if Bieber wants it then others might as well.

- Casey Affleck dons a sheet in ‘Ghost Story’ — and it’s actually good
By Sara Stewart - Thursday Jul 6, 2017
I’ve heard of an actor losing himself in a role, but I’ve never seen one so literally and figuratively lost on-screen, to moving effect. For most of “A Ghost Story,” Casey Affleck is hidden under a plain white sheet as the title’s apparition. (Yes, apparently it’s really him under there.) The costume initially comes across...
