<div class="col-md-8" id="homeview-story"></div>
<div class="col-md-4" id="homeview-stream">
$("#log").append("<div>Handler for .scroll() called.</div>");
The issue is that,
#homeview-story isn't overflowing, So it isn't scrolling. First of all it should have some content larger than that for it to scroll, which is missing in your code.
Here's a Demo, where
#logo has a height greater than it's parent
#homeview-stream and we're listening to it's scroll.
