the other as yet unnamed victim Lu Lingzi , as well as all of the injured and their families. As awful as it is at a time like this, it’s important to remember that there are criminals who take advantage of times of disaster and tragedy. Please exercise judgment when you donate to charities. If it isn’t a charity with which you’re familiar, check out Charity Navigator or the Better Business Bureau. Exercise extreme caution if giving to an individual. In fact, unless you have personal knowledge of the situation, you’re better off giving to an established organization. (End Public Service Announcement.)
But even though it’s Wednesday, this is still a Terrible Tuesday post. Got it? Links!

EarthSky gives you get a heads up on what’s happening in the sky that night, so you don’t do like I usually do: “Oh! That awesome astronomical thing was last week? And it won’t happen for another 3 years? Well, dang.”
Speaking of astronomy, Stellarium for Android is half price at the Google Play store until April 19th! It’s always free for computers and iThings.
From Cracked: The 5 Creepiest Ways Major Companies Are Watching You. It’s good to know that Mac users will overpay for everything, not just tech. And yeah, that’s Cracked, so fair warning on bad language and coarse humor.
