The United States under-20 men’s national team is headed for Poland next spring. Tab Ramos’ side took advantage of a favorably altered CONCACAF Championship format and dominated the tournament perhaps more than any class before it. The U.S. won all six of its meaningful games, including their initial classification stage match against Costa Rica to book their trip. To help you understand how dominant the young Yanks were against their out-matched competition, check out this handsome blogger’s tweet from six days ago: This doesn’t even take into account the 4-0 win over Costa Rica, lifting the total goal differential for the six games to an incredible +41.

Philadelphia Union teammates Matthew Real and Mark McKenzie helped lead the defense to a third straight clean sheet and two LA Galaxy Academy alums Alex Mendez and Ulysses Llanez provided the fireworks in the first half with goals inside 20 minutes. Juan Pablo Torres and Toronto FC forward Ayo Akinola added goals in the second half. Real wore the captain’s armband for the fourth time in the competition, which has been a resounding success on both sides of the ball for the Yanks. Through six games, the U.S. has put together

Eating locally reduces your ecological footprint, but studies show what you eat may be even more important. Humans have been moving food around the world for thousands of years. Toward the end of the second century BC, merchants traveled along the Silk Road, transporting noodles from Xi’an, grapes from Dayuan and nutmeg from the Moluccas Islands to eager buyers along its 4,000-mile network. While it’s possible to trace the evolution of food through that matrix of ancient caravan routes that linked China to the West, it’s hard to measure its environmental impact. It’s likely that, as with any road, wildlife corridors were disrupted. But greenhouse gas emissions were fairly low, consisting of the methane from the belches and farts of the horses, yaks and Bactrian camels, and the fires that humans burned along the way.Fast-forward to the 20th-century US. Modern transportation and the rise of post-World War II suburban life changed the agricultural trade — and the way we at...

I destroy Apple Watches. It's not intentional. It just kinda happens. The first Apple Watch was a Series 1 piece of wrist candy. I loved how it kept reminders for me to take my medication, pay my bills, and all of the other things that my PTSD-addled brain refuses to keep track of on my wrist. I hated how slow it was to respond to requests and that it wasn't possible to hide apps that I never used from its interface. It died in a torrential downpour. Same thing for my second Apple watch. It was a Series 2. While it was a little bit faster and the OS was a tiny bit more agreeable, it was unable to avoid being smashed by a passerby at a street market in Costa Rica. From the impact, it looked like it had met with a single, focused impact, like the tip of a knife or another object that wouldn't be agreeable to have in my body.
