Really interesting and pertinent article on the importance of #sanitation to prevent #disease - especially in #developing nations! 
It might not be sexy or nice to talk about but we know toilets save lives. Toilets provide copious benefits.

Health is enhanced, fewer days are lost to sickness, and children, especially girls can stay in education. Currently one in three children do not have access to a basic toilet. As a result, ten million under...

Pretty cool and intuitive way to explain it!
 
Scientists like Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk have recently signed and supported an open letter warning of the dangers of AI. Should we be worried about the socio-political ramifications of artificial intelligence? Here's a great elaboration of the subject using waffles:
Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) is more than just self-driving cars, super-intelligent stock calculators and military drones. It has already infiltrated our lives in many mundane ways. Artificial Intelligence is in your phone’s auto-correct, and can control your... #ai #automation #elonmusk
