A great story of a kid who started out making videos on his unmade bed! He now has millions of followers!

From the article:
I’d asked Reed how he justified using a fiction (race) to measure reality (body shape). Reed responded that while, yes, race was a social construct, because people tended to think about themselves in predictable ways in relation to racial labels, race could still yield solid information.
A startup finds that asking for certain data improves the fit of its clothes — and lands the company in a cultural minef…

The rise of artificial intelligence could actually make our lives better.
The futurist sat down with Neil deGrasse Tyson to discuss what it means to think and create in a near-future where knowledge and expertise are downloadable.

From the article:
"American author, sociologist, historian, and civil rights icon W.E.B. Du Bois reached out to Einstein for a contribution to The Crisis, the official journal of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. "
 
“Professor Einstein is not a mere mathematical mind. He is a living being, sympathetic with all human advance… and he hates race prejudice because as a Jew he knows what it is.”

From the article: But this was Star Trek. Lin kept thinking of how, when he was a child, his father would come home from his 12-hour workdays and the two would watch reruns of TV’s most trailblazingly diverse show—one of the only to feature an Asian American actor (George Takei).

Lin drove to his parents’ house. “I just remember looking at them and thinking, ‘I should do it.’”

Any doubts about Lin directing the new Star Trek should be removed after reading this article.
The director supercharged the Fast and Furious franchise and gave it global appeal. Now he's about to soup up Star Trek.

Before visiting Applebee's, I had never been to a restaurant in Texas that actually let my tea reach the bottom of my glass. And that pretty much sums up my experience at Applebee's. The food was good, not great. The service was good, not great. We had a pleasant dining experience but it was nothing to get excited about.

It's almost as if Grandma were in the kitchen cooking. Hartz may be a chain, but the food is delicious and has the "home cooked" taste. This is a regular stop for me and my family.

The Margaret E. Blizzard Senior Activity Center has two main goals. The first is to give quality and dignity to the lives of senior citizens, and the second goal is to give relief to the huge and growing costs of medical and nursing home expenses. They are poised to accomplish both goals with the new 18,00 square foot building that was funded totally with donations. The Center has a huge dining room, a gift shop, a library, and a computer lab, among many other activities. All the volunteers are very friendly and are eager to help. The Margaret E. Blizzard Senior Activity Center will make a great addition to Brenham and will offer great service to the more than 900 seniors in and around Brenham.

Me and the wifey come here for the food (Cobb salad and Spicy Chicken Deluxe are personal favorites), while the kids enjoy the awesome play area! We've never been disappointed at Chick-fil-A, and the customer service is top-notch.
