Nice!
 
A little over a year ago I started something that has changed my life. I was tired of not being able to do the simplest of tasks like getting out of bed, or walking up a flight of stairs. I started eating healthier and got more active. I started playing this game called +Ingress which forced me to go out and walk all over the place. Through that game I have met so many awesome people and haven't had more fun playing a game and being social since, well... I dont know when. During this passed year I have lost 140lbs and have finally said good by to the 300s. Thanks everyone for all of your support!

That's amazing, but the secret sauce isn't really the robots, is what's behind the innocuous one liner "The items appear to be shelved randomly, but they're actually organized based upon a computer algorithm."
As consumers buy more from the Internet's largest retailer, it keeps up by outfitting warehouses with robots that work at speeds humans can't.

Google will give $2 for every $1 you give to any of a collection of organizations that are actively working to fight the Ebola outbreak. My family and I have been longtime supporters of the +International Rescue Committee, but they're all great organizations. I am very proud to work for a company that views humanitarian and epidemiological crises as important issues.

"It's no secret that men make up the majority in the tech industry. That means it's incumbent on us to support and encourage the ideas and achievements of the women we work with. We know it works — that when male allies confront prejudice on women's behalf, it can change behavior. If we don't take action, then we're failing not only our female colleague but ourselves — because we also know that more diverse workplaces are more innovative and, ultimately, more successful."

"Imagine if millions of young Tyson fans stopped searching for facts to confirm their personal biases, or ceased prioritizing using their education to leverage personal wealth, and instead sought the most sound solutions to identifiable problems for the betterment of the species. If the rising generation of young voters actually starts demanding rational, evidence-guided leadership, few in our current crop of elected officials would survive the political fallout."
Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson has been the recipient of a seemingly bizarre political backlash — after the conservative magazine National Review penned a takedown cover story on the “ Cosmos ” host last week depicting him as a smug, intellectual bully.
