    Google collects Android users' locations even when location services are disabled

    Many people realize that smartphones track their locations. But what if you actively turn off location services, haven’t used any apps, and haven’t even inserted a carrier SIM card? Even if you take all of those precautions, phones running Android software gather data about your location and send it back to Google when they’re connected to the internet, a Quartz investigation has revealed.

    Method demystifies the center of our chromosomes

    A new technique has yielded clues to the role of centromeres in Down syndrome, which arises when a child inherits an extra copy of chromosome 21.A new technique could give scientists access to the “final frontier” of our DNA—the centromere. It’s in nearly every one of our cells, at the center of every X-shaped chromosome, and it plays a crucial role in the everyday cell division that keeps us healthy. Which also makes it a key suspect in birth defects, cancers, and other diseases that ar...

    How to write articles fast (that people actually want to read)

    “Work harder,” they say. “Make more content and 10X your life,” they cry. “But this stuff needs to be good, and I can’t keep up,” you counter, meekly. “Go beast mode! Hustle!” They interject. And you protest: “I don’t have time to produce a lot of content. Plus everyone else is faster and better than me. Why bother?” Why bother, indeed. Content is a tough one. We know we need to share plenty of stuff to get attention. We know we need to do it a lot.

    Working For Free Is Not An Opportunity.

    The other day, I sat down for a meeting with an entrepreneur who was looking for a marketer and content writer. A mutual friend had put us in touch, and prior to our meeting I had provided him with a clear breakdown of my fees and estimates. We met up at a cafe and shared some coffee to discuss his project.

    Trump’s likely pick to empower women is mad that Disney movies don’t feature enough strong male leads

    It’s hard to imagine a more ironic choice for America’s next ambassador-at-large for women’s issues. The position is tasked with overseeing State Department programs to end gender-based violence and empower women and girls around the world. So, naturally, President Donald Trump is reportedly considering Penny Young Nance, a far-right Christian activist who opposed reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act...

    Elon Musk Was Wrong About Self-Driving Teslas

    A year ago, Tesla Inc. set up a hastily organized conference call between Elon Musk and reporters. Tesla had something big to announce—big enough for the chief executive to open the floor to questions. That doesn’t happen very often.

    How I Went From Zero To 200,000+ Views My First 30 Days On Medium

    My first semester of college, I attended the University of Missouri to study journalism (one of the top journalism schools in the country). I was sitting in an auditorium of 500 students when my teacher threw blogging under the bus. “It’s a trend. A fad. Blogging will never be considered real journalism.” I raised my hand. “I think it’s going to be the opposite.”

    Sodium-based batteries more cost-effective than lithium

    As a warming world moves from fossil fuels toward renewable solar and wind energy, industrial forecasts predict an insatiable need for battery farms to store power and provide electricity when the sky is dark and the air is still. Against that backdrop, Stanford researchers have developed a sodium-based battery that can store the same amount of energy as a state-of-the-art lithium ion, at substantially lower cost.
