Obama to rename Mount McKinley

mashable.com — President Obama is about to leave his mark on maps everywhere, but don't worry, he's not pulling a Trump.

The startup-filled Silicon Bayou in New Orleans lives on, 10 years after Katrina

mashable.com — The grand old restaurant Commander's Palace, in New Orleans, is hidden among multicolored mansions in the city's smartest neighborhood, not far from where Sandra Bullock owned a house. To get in, you have to pass muster: no jeans, no shorts, nothing that would detract from the genteel luxury where the city's old guard drink scandalously cheap 25-cent martinis along with their turtle soup, gumbo and bread pudding.

Putin's perfect man date with Medvedev: Pumping iron, BBQ, tea

mashable.com — Vladimir Putin's summer vacation is infinitely more badass than yours. While on a getaway in the Russian resort town of Sochi, Russia's perennial president and government-approved definition of "manliness" took his prime minister on the perfect man date: an afternoon of lifting weights and grilling up BBQ finished off with an elegant (but still totally manly) tea session.
