    PayPal Director Makes Spectacular Statement About Bitcoin

    Xapo CEO and director at PayPal, Wences Casares, recently made some spectacular claims about the potential price of Bitcoin in the future in an essay that was published in Kana and Katana, stating: “In my (subjective) opinion those chances of succeeding are at least 50%. If Bitcoin does succeed, 1 Bitcoin may be worth more than $1 million in 7 to 10 years. That is 250 times what it is worth today (at the time of writing the price of Bitcoin is ~ $4,000).”

    We are not yet doomed: the carbon cutters determined to save the world

    We are all doomed, it is said. Carbon dioxide is amassing in the atmosphere at levels not seen for millions of years when there were trees at the South Pole and Florida was under water. We have barely a decade to make amends. Protesters are on the streets. But huge numbers of people have not given up. Not yet. Call them the carbon cutters. They are companies and cities, niche groups and nations.

    How Old Are Saturn's Rings? The Debate Rages On

    Of our solar system’s wonders, one reigns as the emblem of all that is alien and otherworldly: the majestic rings of Saturn, rising resplendent and shimmering above the giant planet’s buttery, cloud-crossed face. Stretching nearly 300,000 kilometers from tip to tip and containing countless icy particles ranging in size from “microscopic” to “mobile home,” the rings make Saturn undeniably eye-catching. But more than mere decoration, they are one of the most enduring enigmas in planeta...

Kelsey was spotted in London looking like a man on a mission while carrying what appears to be a "Frasier" script -- the binder cover has the show title and Kelsey's production company, Gramnet.

    Windows 10 Is Doing A Great Job Persuading People To Switch To A Different Operating System

    “Hallelujah! All our problems are solved!” At least that’s how some reacted when it was discovered that the May 2019 Update for Windows 10 will give users some control over when feature updates are installed. This reaction is perfectly understandable after last year’s update disasters, but I wouldn’t get my hopes up just yet. There are widespread reports that the recent April update for Windows 10 has caused system freezes, crashes and slowdowns for some users.

    The Everyday Brutality of America’s Prisons

    Earlier this week, the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division released a summary of its findings on the state of Alabama’s prisons. The accounts are stomach-churning: The New York Times noted that one prisoner had been lying dead for so long that “his face was flattened,” while another “was tied up and tortured for two days.” A dive into the 53-page report reveals yet more horror. One prisoner was doused with bleach and beaten with a broken mop handle. Another was attacked with s...

    Google and other tech giants are quietly buying up the most important part of the internet

    Google makes billions from its cloud platform. Now it’s using those billions to buy up the internet itself — or at least the submarine cables that make up the internet backbone. In February, the company announced its intention to move forward with the development of the Curie cable, a new undersea line stretching from California to Chile. It will be the first private intercontinental cable ever built by a major non-telecom company.

    America's 2019 harvest is already in trouble

    As farmers plant their 2019 crops, hopeful for an abundant harvest, they are unknowingly battling history. Past wildfires and other tree loss in California will likely interfere with U.S. food crops, based on emerging results of our own and colleagues’ research. An estimated 147 million trees in California forests died between 2010 and 2018, an unprecedented loss.

    All hail regular guy Keanu Reeves, king of the airport

    Celebrities, the sparkling gods of our age, do not seem like they should be able to operate like normal people. More used to having stuff done for them than doing stuff themselves, we all just sort of assume that, say, Brad Pitt or Matt Damon would be an absolute nightmare to be around if their car broke down and nobody was around to fix it.

    Criminal charges against 'Empire' actor Jussie Smollett dropped

    Chicago prosecutors on Tuesday abruptly dropped criminal charges against “Empire” star Jussie Smollett, who was accused of staging a phony hate crime against himself. Smollett, 36, who had faced 16 counts of disorderly conduct, appeared at an emergency court hearing Tuesday morning, where the case was dismissed. The move came as a surprise. There had been no suggestion in recent court filings or media reports that Smollet’s case would be tossed out.
