Uber debuts its first fleet of driverless cars in Pittsburgh

Starting later this month, Uber will allow customers in downtown Pittsburgh to summon self-driving cars from their phones, crossing an important milestone that no automotive or technology company has yet achieved.
The company’s fleet of robotic cars will be supervised by humans in the driver’s seat.

The Netherlands is considering a ban on selling gas-powered cars in the next 10 years

The Dutch government is debating the possibility of banning new gas and diesel cars from 2025.

The initial proposal, which was brought forward by the Labor Party, called for an outright ban of all petrol and diesel cars, but was eventually modified so the ban only affected the sale of new petrol and diesel cars. Traditional cars already in use will still run on the streets.

The proposal has since passed in the lower house of the Netherlands’ parliament. It now needs to pass through the Dutch senate.

5. Finland (6)
6. Singapore (7)

Innovation plays a key role as a driver of economic growth and prosperity. The GII seeks to improve the way innovation is measured and understood. It recognizes the need for a broad vision of innovation, applicable to developed and emerging economies alike, and includes indicators that go beyond traditional measures of innovation, such as the level of research and development.

European economies dominated the ranks of the world's most innovative countries, but China was fast climbing the ladder, according to a study.

There's no plan b

‘Plan A’ Works Better When There’s No ‘Plan B’

"Simply contemplating backup plans make you want to achieve the primary goal less, which makes you put less effort into it.”

It turns out, the best-laid plans are those that don’t include a Plan B.

New research has found that when people make a backup plan for their goals, their performance on the primary goal can suffer.
Research participants asked to think of a backup plan did worse than those who simply did a primary task

I was reading some economists' thoughts about our recent economic meltdowns, and that was one thing they said as well: you have to bail out major lending institutions, but you can't let them know you're going to or they'll screw up worse.

Does burnt food give you cancer?

If you’re offered a plate of blackened barbecue food this summer, you might think twice about eating it. It’s commonly thought that food that has been burnt could cause cancer. This is in part down to one particular molecule that forms when food is cooked at high temperatures, known as acrylamide. But while the chemical is a known potential toxin and carcinogen in its industrial form, the link between consuming it in food and developing cancer is much less clear.

One of my biochemistry profs was studying exactly this and he felt quite strongly about it. I did not realize there was much doubt, so maybe now I'll be a little less tense about BBQ.

How Breakfast Became a Thing

"Be vigilant. Breakfast is the most marketed meal of the day."

Breakfast is the most skipped meal in America, which means money on the table for the food industry.

The most successful food trends tend to combine science and morality, and the invention of cereal was no exception.

Does food make the Olympian?

Olympians eat the same food as normal people, they just need to be a bit more careful. They represent the extremes of body shape, body size, body performance, but they don’t live the life of an extremist. They’ll still go out to burger chains, they just won’t do it twice a day every day.
Olympic athletes can burn thousands of calories as they strive for gold medals, making food essential for their training. We were fascinated by how professional athletes fuel themselves for Olympic events, so we reached out to the Olympians themselves. Here’s what they had to say:

Delta is building suites for business class, and it could make in-flight luxury cheaper on all airlines

Delta is taking business class private.

The airline is adding doors to its flatbed seats on international Delta One cabins, taking a page from the playbook of carriers like Singapore Airlines, Etihad and Emirates, which offer suites in first class. It’s also adding memory foam cushions and 18-inch, high-resolution monitors. The new business-class cabin will have what Delta calls “residential feel.”

Until the 1950's this was a thing on at least some domestic aircraft and certainly on airships.

Doctors need to be taught how to discuss their patients' excess weight

An individual’s weight is a complex and sensitive issue, which may be related to many factors that are not only medical but social, environmental and emotional. The skills to address the issue in a way that communicates the health risks of being overweight without judgement and without inciting negative responses are not easy to acquire or universally taught.

I just saw a Penn Jillette video where he was saying that his doctors didn't bring-up the subject of his weight until after he had heart-bypass surgery and they wanted him to get a stomach sleeve. My doctor, however, always tells me that I need to lose 20-30 pounds.

The Mystery of Kombucha Culture

While kombucha fans have long promoted the drink as a cure-all, listeners may be disappointed to learn that there's little science supporting such health claims, though Wolfe does suggest a potential mechanism through which fermented tea might have a positive impact on the gut microbiome. But, even though it likely doesn't hold the secret to eternal life, Wolfe is hoping his kombucha collection will help answer much more fundamental questions about microbial life. Along the way, he may even discover how to engineer the perfect blob.


The fizzy, fermented tea is not the cure-all that its devotees want it to be, but it still might have health benefits.

Luckily, the price may discourage some people from becoming "healthy".
