Americans younger than 50 oppose fracking more than they support it--though a fifth of the population has no opinion.

Facebook wants to change your shopping experience. But do you really want to chat with businesses on your phone?
If Facebook Messenger has its way, retailers will have a very intimate platform to talk to you, and sell you more.

Maria Fernandes worked three jobs, at three different Dunkin’ Donuts stores in New Jersey. She napped when she could, often in her car between shifts. She tended to sleep with the engine running, and kept a container full of fuel in the back in case she ran out. On August 25th 2014, the container had accidentally overturned and the car filled with fumes while she slept. Fernandes, 32, died there, still wearing her uniform.
Health researchers are underscoring the connection between sleep, work, and povertyand the immense value of sleeping in.

It's no secret that the tech industry isn't very diverse. But when Kathryn Finney and her team at Digital Undivided starting digging into the numbers, the picture looked worse than they thought: when searching for black, female founders who have raised $2 million or more in funding, the tally was not encouraging. They could only find three.
High-profile, black female founders are incredibly rare in tech. Here's how Project Diane aims to change that.

You can change the Disney logo's most signature element, the castle, and it's still iconic.
The 30-year-old logo has had countless iterations over the years, nearly all of them wonderful and whimsical.

What's the most popular course at Stanford? If you guessed computer science, think again:
It's called "Designing Your Life," a course that's part throwback, part foreshadowing of higher education's future.

Bad news: BPS is probably not much less toxic than BPA. We just don't know as much about it because far fewer studies have been done on the replacement compound.
Hate to break it to you, but the chemical that replaced BPA in those plastic water bottles is probably just as bad.
