    How Dungeons & Dragons somehow became more popular than ever

    There was something about Dungeons & Dragons that spoke to Mario Alvarenga in a deep way. He tried it for the first time five years ago — never mind that he was not a teen, as most newbies are, but an adult. While experiencing the role-playing game, he could imagine scenes down to the tiniest detail: the bump of cobblestones on a street, the smell of baked goods in a market, the coldness of the wind. The boredom in his life melted away.

    Glitter is terrible for the environment. Here's why scientists want you to stop using it.

    You can probably remember the joy when you were allowed to get the glitter out at school. There's a sense of fun and nostalgia about the sparkly stuff that reminds us of being young when we paint our faces with it at festivals and concerts. But glitter is also terrible for the environment. Most glitter products are made from plastic, which is a huge problem for marine life. When glitter is washed down the drain, it becomes part of the growing problem of "microplastics," which are ...

    On The 25th Anniversary Of Kurt Cobain's Death, His Legacy Remains In A League Of Its Own

    Nirvana were my first true musical obsession. The self-titled greatest hits collection released when I was 12, and at that age, primed for teenage angst in a wave of hormonal shifts, their music spoke to me on a level that I had never experienced before. As with many kids my age, it wasn’t long before my bedroom walls were plastered with printed images of Kurt and the lads.

    Turning the tables on cold callers

    A man targeted by marketing companies is making money from cold calls with his own higher-rate phone number. In November 2011 Lee Beaumont paid £10 plus VAT to set up his personal 0871 line - so to call him now costs 10p, from which he receives 7p. The Leeds businessman told BBC Radio 4's You and Yours programme that the line had so far made £300. Phone Pay Plus, which regulates premium numbers, said it strongly discouraged people from adopting the idea.

    Bitcoin Transactions Approach All-Time High

    On March 28, 2019, the Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain recorded a total of 393,698 confirmed transactions as both its hash rate and coin price climbed steadily over the past month. Confirmed transactions are now at the highest value since the beginning of January 2018 and are just 20 percent lower than the highest ever recorded value of 490,644 transactions per day achieved at the absolute height of the 2017 bull run — indicating that interest is picking up for the dominant cryptocurrency.

    Lottery winner grateful after good Samaritan returns $273 million winning ticket

    A New Jersey man would have missed out on a $273 million lottery jackpot if it wasn't for a good Samaritan store clerk who kept his tickets safe after he accidentally left them on the store counter. Mike Weirsky, 54, scored the life-changing Mega Millions jackpot when Quick Chek clerk Phil Campolo found the pair of $2 lottery tickets that Weirsky left behind after purchasing them last week at the location near his home in rural Alpha.

    American consumers spent more on Airbnb than on Hilton last year

    Airbnb has long felt like an existential threat to hotel companies. New data shows that it actually is one. US consumers spent more money on Airbnb last year than they did on Hilton and its subsidiary brands like DoubleTree and Embassy Suites, according to new data from Second Measure, a company that analyzes billions of dollars in anonymized debit and credit card purchases. Their Airbnb spending is even catching up to Marriott, the world’s largest hotel company, which added to its revenue by ...

    Citing climate change, U.S. judge blocks oil and gas drilling in Wyoming

    A judge blocked oil and gas drilling across almost 500 square miles in Wyoming and said the U.S. government must consider climate change impacts more broadly as it leases huge swaths of public land for energy exploration. The order marks the latest in a string of court rulings over the past decade — including one last month in Montana — that have faulted the U.S. for inadequate consideration of greenhouse gas emissions when approving oil, gas and coal projects on federal land.

    We're 'Well On Our Way' to Discovering Alien Life, NASA Chief Says

    We may not have to wait much longer to get our first glimpse of E.T., NASA chief Jim Bridenstine said. NASA has made the search for alien life a high priority, and recent discoveries give ample reason for optimism that the endeavor will be successful soon, Bridenstine said last week at a ceremony announcing the death of the agency's record-setting Opportunity Mars rover.

    Scientists Microdosed Rats With DMT and It Was Both Good and "Concerning"

    People who experiment with microdosing claim that it can help a person to think more creatively, feel less anxious, and sharpen focus. But despite plenty of anecdotal evidence and Silicon Valley’s ample claims that these positive effects are real, scientists still can’t definitively say that microdosing — consistently taking low doses of psychedelic drugs — actually works. Bringing us closer to a clear answer is a new study showing that microdosing can indeed have beneficial effects — ...

    Forget growing weed—make yeast spit out CBD and THC instead

    We as a species would be miserable without yeast. Baker's yeast has given us leavened bread for thousands of years. And I don’t even want to begin to imagine a world without beer and wine, which rely on yeast to convert sugar into alcohol.

    Millennial depression on the rise, study says

    Today, young people are more likely to suffer from depression and self-harm than they were 10 years ago, even as substance abuse and anti-social behavior continue to fall, a new study says. Depression levels rose to nearly 15 percent among people born between the early 1990s to 2000, while self-harm rates increased to 14 percent, research published Thursday in the International Journal of Epidemiology shows.
