    @BuzzFeedAnimals started a #PuppyOff yesterday afternoon and solved everyone's post-vacation workday blues. Next time you're in a rut, try puppies.

    First off, if you're worried about your employer's feelings about a Puppy Off, just show them this study:

    First off, if you're worried about your employer's feelings about a Puppy Off, just show them this study:

    A study released last October shows that looking at pictures of baby animals greatly increases focus and productivity.

    In other words, a Puppy Off will help you get your work done and everyone who participates should probably get a raise or an Employee of the Month award or something. Feel free to send us a cut of the bonus you're bound to receive after looking over this Performance Enhancing PuppyOff.

    I spotted this puppy on Pinterest yesterday and just had to share with BuzzFeed Animals' Twitter followers.

    "I think this is one of the cutest pups I have ever seen!"

    Then Twitter user youneedabath sent over another ludicrously charming puppy. Although he sent it without commentary, it seemed to be an invitation to spar...

    #PUPPYOFF!!!

    Now, we received close to a hundred puppies* yesterday and it was the best day ever. We've managed, through objective scientific measures, to narrow it down to the the 50 most productivity enhancing pups of the group.

    * For purposes of the puppy off, all dogs are puppies. That's how it is in their hearts, where it matters.

    Three bodies were discovered inside a town home where there was an ongoing hostage situation this morning in Aurora. The gunman was shot by police.

    Windows shot out by SWAT team during the standoff.

    Via: @ninasparano

    According to 9 News, a man barricaded inside a town home fired shots early this morning. They believe he may have 3-4 hostages inside the home.

    Neighbors have been evacuated and police have been in touch with the man inside intermittently. The NY Daily News reports that as many as 40 officers, including SWAT and hostage negotiators, are on the scene.

    Melissa Blasius, a reporter with 9 News who is on the scene, tweeted at 10:52 AM that shots were fired inside the home. One minute later, she said that she saw a white puff come up fromthe townhouse and smelled tear gas.

    Aurora was the site of the mass shooting at a screening of "The Dark Knight Rises" on July 20. A hearing where prosecutors will outline their case against Holmes, the man accused of killing 12 and wounding 70 in the theater, is set to begin on Monday.

    Update, 11:35 AM: Police have confirmed with 9 News that four people are dead, including the gunman who was shot by police. One person was able to escape and alerted the authorities this morning. Melissa Blasius reported that the gunman shot at officers and refused to come out even when tear gassed.

    The victim's father, Badri Singh Pandey, spoke to the Mirror online and said that he is proud of her and that he hopes that “revealing her name will give courage to other women who have survived these attacks.”

    Image by Amit Dave / Reuters

    Jyoti Singh Pandey's brutal rape and beating, spurred many in the country to protest. The victim has been anonymous up until now, in accordance with Indian law that does not reveal the name of a rape victim unless authorized to do by the victim or their family.

    Pandey died in the hospital from a heart attack after the incident. The six men who are accused of the crime are now being tried for murder.

    Badri told the Mirror that “I so desperately wanted her to survive, even though she would have to live with a memory of that attack and get through her trauma. We’re so devastated that she’s gone. There’s a huge void in our lives. She was the centre of our universe. Our lives revolved around her."

    “Her absence is so painful, a future without her is unimaginable.”

    Jyoti's father described the timeline of learning that his daughter had been in an accident and then hearing the horrific details of what happened, and he called for the death penalty for her assailants.

    Badri also said that "the people of India have given us strength to cope up with our loss."

    "I feel she’s not just my daughter but also India’s daughter."

    This kid is probably the best human being on the planet.

    Evan loves cats. After he adopted his own kitty, Macha, from City Kitties rescue in Philadelphia, he wanted to find a way to continue to help the cats they were rescuing. He was only 7-years-old, but he saved his allowance money for several months and donated $46.75 to the charity.

    Evan's first letter from 2009, when he was 7

    Evan's first letter from 2009, when he was 7

    Dear City Kitties,

    My name is Evan. I am 7 years old. And guess what? ... I LOVE cats! They are my favorite animals and I got my cat at City Kitties as well! THANK YOU for letting me get my new cat! Thank you, City Kitties.

    Sincerely,

    Evan

    P.S. I get an allowance every week and I chose to make a donation to you. I love that you help cats find homes. I saved this money to help you help cats.

    Evan with Calvin, 2010

    This cat, Calvin, was adopted by Evan and his family after Evan took an interest in him, buying his portrait at a City Kitties art auction. Evan would come check on the cat, who was living in a foster home. Then Evan set up a sidewalk stand to sell figs from his family's tree to help raise more money in Calvin's name, raising $86, which he donated to City Kitties.

    Eventually, Evan's family decided to adopt Calvin, but staged a little surprise for him. They told him that Calvin had finally been adopted and that he should go say goodbye. Evan asked City Kitties if Calvin would be living nearby, prompting them to show him Calvin's new address... his own!

    Dear City Kitties,

    I hope you have had a great year! I have given my annual holiday donation with this letter. I am inclosing... $97.00! I saved up a lot of money this year! How is Clark Kent? I hope he is getting better! I am so happy that people like you are around to save abandoned kitties from danger! I want to help you do that and I hope other people will help, too!

    Fondly,
    Evan S.

    P.S. Our city kitties are doing great - (despite Macha playing roughly with Calvin and Elsa.)

    The Baseball Writers Association voted on the 2013 class for the HOF and elected…no one. And the Internet's leading Hall of Fame sketch artist wonders who they think they were sticking it to.

    Jeff Bagwell is a Hall of Famer by almost any standard. Despite playing most of his career in the pitcher-friendly Astrodome and being plagued by injuries, he logged 449 home runs, 1529 RBIs, and a .948 on-base plus slugging percentage (the 22nd-highest of all time). He's never been named in any PED reports or called to testify in any Congressional hearings or even had his name tossed around in a steroids discussion by anonymous sources.

    Jeff Bagwell — the fourth-greatest first baseman of all time, according to the rankings of the legendary Bill James — didn't get into the Hall of Fame in either of his first two years of eligiblity. He didn't get in this year either.

    No one did.

    Why? Because many Hall of Fame voters have decided to ignore players from the 1990s, even those who've never been accused of PED use, or even to turn in completely blank ballots this year in protest of the entire steroids era. Their attitude is summed up by what sportswriter Jeff Pearlman wrote about Bagwell in a now-notorious column: that even if Bagwell "didn’t use [he] stood by and watched his sport morph into WWE nonsense." (Bear in mind here that there are more than a hundred Hall of Famers who "stood by" when black people were banned from playing baseball.)

    Putting the problem on guys like Bagwell is a terrible solution to the (legitimately difficult) steroids conundrum — even if you accept the dubious premise that voting on individual players is an appropriate place to make a statement about a collective issue.

    To understand why, consider the example of Bagwell's teammate, Craig Biggio, who's never been associated with steroids by anyone. He was never that kind of player. He hit home runs, but not at a crazy rate. He never got big. He was never injured, a frequent reason/excuse for using banned substances — he was on the DL once over his entire 19-year-career! He recorded 3,060 hits, joining the elite "3,000 club" — every eligible member of which is in Hall of Fame except for Rafael Palmeiro, who tested positive for steroids days after recording his 3,000th hit. Biggio was a seven-time All-Star, a four-time Gold Glove winner. He is the only player in the history of baseball with more than 3,000 hits, 600 doubles, 400 stolen bases, and 250 home runs. He is, unquestionably a Hall of Famer, and if he had been inducted this year, he would have been the first player to go into the Hall as a Houston Astro.

    Biggio got the most votes for the Hall of Fame this year, his first year of eligiblity, but still fell 39 votes short of the total he needed to get in. Whether he gets in next year remains a question mark with an unusually crowded field.

    If your goal in voting for the Hall of Fame is to strike a blow against PEDs, what have you done by voting against Biggio? You've given steroids a win they don't deserve. Houston fans — and baseball fans — could have had the chance to celebrate the wonderful things about baseball this year. Even if we can't agree on everything yet, we could at least take the opportunity to agree on the merit of someone like Craig Biggio. Instead, in the absence of fresh inductees, we will spend Hall of Fame induction weekend pouting and sulking about what some guys did wrong 15 years ago. The writers' tantrum, allegedly thrown in the name of ideals, is depriving the fans who care about baseball the most — the geeks who get excited about things like Hall of Fame weekend — one of the few occasions to celebrate those ideals.

    I can't pretend to be objective here: I have spent the last two years drawing every member of the Hall of Fame. I plan to be done with the project this year. I thought I'd have a player or two to add to my list, and that I might have the chance to actually draw the uniform of my own beloved Houston Astros. There was ample warning that Biggio might not make it this year, but I allowed myself to believe that the writers might cut the Houston baseball fan base a bit of a break. And according to the strange Hall of Fame phenomenon in which players get more votes the longer they've been retired, Bagwell and Biggio are actually both almost guaranteed entry at some point during their eligibility, which begs the question: what's going to have changed between now and then? Here's one thing: as Dave Cameron of Fangraphs pointed out on Twitter today, "there are aging Astros fans who are going to die before Craig Biggio and Jeff Bagwell get elected."

    BBWAA members were supposedly sending a message with their votes this year. The message I got was that they are too bitter and proud of their own moral tenacity to celebrate baseball with the rest of us.

    Swartz was the co-author of the first RSS specification, an instrumental part in creating Reddit, and co-founder of the Advocacy group Demand Progress. He was 26.

    Source: ragesoss

    Aaron Swartz was 13 the first time he was recognized for his achievements with technology. He was the winner of the ArsDigita Prize, a competition for young people who created "useful, educational, and collaborative" web sites. By the age of 14, he was collaborating with experts, including Cory Doctorow of BoingBoing. He co-authored the first specification of RSS when he was still a teen.

    More recently, he became widely known after he was caught illegally downloading roughly 4 million academic journal articles from the digital library JSTOR, in an attempt to distribute them for free. In 2011, the Department of Justice charged him with "wire fraud, computer fraud, unlawfully obtaining information from a protected computer, and recklessly damaging a protected computer," and refused to drop the case. He was facing the possibility of a prison term of 35 years and a fine of up to $1 million.

    On Friday, Swartz committed suicide at his apartment in New York City.

    "The tragic and heartbreaking information you received is, regrettably, true," Swartz's attorney wrote to MIT's newspaper confirming the news.

    Swartz attended Stanford University for one year before leaving to found the software company Infogami and work on a new website, Reddit.com. Reddit was eventually bought by CondéNet (a division of Condé Nast), and Swartz left the company a few months later, becoming, in Doctorow's words, a "full-time, uncompromising, reckless and delightful shit-disturber."

    Swartz went on to co-found Demand Progress, an advocacy group that used the web to organize people towards political victories. The group was an instrumental factor in 2012's fight against the SOPA/PIPA "internet censorship" bills.

    Although JSTOR declined to file a civil lawsuit against Swartz, the federal government pursued the case. (This week, JSTOR announced that it was introducing free limited access accounts.)

    Swartz struggled with depression and had written about the subject on his blog.

    You feel as if streaks of pain are running through your head, you thrash your body, you search for some escape but find none. And this is one of the more moderate forms. As George Scialabba put it, "acute depression does not feel like falling ill, it feels like being tortured … the pain is not localized; it runs along every nerve, an unconsuming fire. … Even though one knows better, one cannot believe that it will ever end, or that anyone else has ever felt anything like it."

    Doctorow also wrote today that "Aaron had an unbeatable combination of political insight, technical skill, and intelligence about people and issues. I think he could have revolutionized American (and worldwide) politics."

    "His legacy may still yet do so."
