The financial system has gone crazy!

They accuse someone who trades a few thousand futures contracts of causing the flash crash of 2010 from his basement while absolving institutional High Frequency Traders of any responsibility.
Navinder Singh Sarao's actions have been described as heroic by a fund manager, as US authorities pursue him for allegedly causing a market crash

These people are my heroes. They grow so much food in so little space.

The next iteration towards the universal translator.
Google translate is a very useful app when traveling. It was invaluable on my trip to Shanghai last year. 
 
Whether you’re deciphering a sign in Rio de Janeiro or negotiating with a shop owner in Berlin, Google Translate can be your guide. Starting today, you can instantly translate signs using your phone’s camera and the Translate app, available on Android and iOS: http://goo.gl/lVse9T

I couldn't close my mouth out of shock when I tried it.

False testimony by FBI resulted in defendants sentenced to death. Should these false testifiers be themselves charged with murder?

"The review confirmed that FBI experts systematically testified to the near-certainty of “matches” of crime-scene hairs to defendants, backing their claims by citing incomplete or misleading statistics drawn from their case work."

If false testimony resulted in someone executed with death penalty, shouldn't the testifier be charged with murder?
Forensic hair matches were overstated in many cases heard before 2000, including those of 32 defendants sentenced to death, the FBI and the Justice Department acknowledged after a review.

It is better to invest in experiences over material things.
The value of material things diminish over time, but great experiences grow fonder and more valuable over time.
You don't have infinite money. Spend it on stuff that research says makes you happy.

That should always be the case. And spacing experiences that make you happy, as Dan Ariely points out. I.e. go on two shorter holidays instead of one and, if possible, eat half a chocolate bar now and half later. Or one bar now and one later, that sounds even better, I think :).

I have always wondered why transferring money from one bank account to another is so expensive and is not instantaneous. Moreover, transferring money internationally is even more expensive. This especially hurts families in poorer countries that depend on small remittances that are sent by their immigrant relatives.
This is a story of a small bank in Weir, Kansas that is trying to change all this. Wish them all the best.
