Fla. mom guilty of firing ‘warning shot’ at husband is freed
Marissa Alexander, who was sentenced to 20 years in prison for firing a single shot toward her husband, was freed as part of a plea deal.

In the meantime, I wonder how many abuse victims/survivors had to pick “not going to jail;” over protecting themselves and their family.

I am excited that she is at least home, despite my disgust that it even had to go this far…

Seafaring spiders depend on their ‘sails’ and 'anchors’

Spiders travel across water like ships, using their legs as sails and their silk as an anchor, according to research published in the open access journal BMC Evolutionary Biology. The study helps explain how spiders are able to migrate across vast distances and why they are quick to colonise new areas.
