meanWHILE, in #investing :
""Retail is a landmine and you just don’t know who is going to be disrupted by Amazon. You are seeing money rotate into names where people feel comfortable with companies that won’t be Amazon'ed away,” said Scott Moore, a portfolio manager at Buffalo Funds.
More has shifted his portfolio from traditional department stores and into companies such as Home Depot Inc, whose bulky, heavy items are hard to ship profitably, he said.
Overall, actively managed large-cap funds now hold more restaurant, home improvement, and leisure stocks - all sectors in which Amazon does not yet compete - than at any other time in the last five years, according to Morningstar data, while they have steadily cut holdings of apparel and department stores over the same period." #amazon

"Though Eternal Return's creators call it an art space, it feels much more like a real-life MMO, where visitors solve puzzles, gather clues, and access new maps to level up. The aesthetic is often reminiscent of cult movie Donnie Darko, with its trippy gothic feel and pocket universes. But it will also feel familiar to anyone who ever got sucked into the ethereally beautiful Myst video game series, where your task is to figure out how a family tragedy led to the abandonment of increasingly weird and magical places. Like Myst, Eternal Return goes deep and is full of games-within-games. You can read Selig family journals, open their drawers, and take any number of pathways to find answers."

This is fantastic #neuralnetworks #artwork  
These bizarre images, created by users via Russian website Ostagram, are the product of an art technique known as Inceptionism, where images are combined using neural networks to generate a single mind-bending picture.

Chalk animation makes astrophysics lectures easier! #blackholes #stephenhawking #science  
An illustrated version of Prof Stephen Hawking’s second Reith lecture, Black holes ain't as black as they are painted. Prof Hawking examines scientific thinking about black holes and challenges the idea that all matter and information is destroyed irretrievably within them.

"In Amazon’s third decade, with its complete domination of the e-commerce landscape, there are signs it is beginning to emphasize the value each customer brings.
“They are trying to figure out what product categories have customers who are so tied into the Amazon ecosystem that list prices are no longer necessary,” Mr. Compeau, of Clarkson, said. In some categories, like groceries, Amazon seems to be using just one price, the buy-it-now price."
As retailers face consumer lawsuits over discounts, Amazon is changing the way it presents bargains to customers.

We asked copy chief Benjamin Dreyer if he could justify his undying affection for Shirley Jackson's 'Haunting of Hill House.' We weren't disappointed.

"He owned the screen and the stage, and he was so damn weird. Everything that my brother and I were told not to be as black kids, he was. He was sensitive, he was flamboyant, he was sexy, he was bold, he was as feminine as he was masculine. He lived in a place where nobody questioned why his voice didn’t sound “black enough,” he lived in a place where nobody asked why a black dude would love rock n’ roll, he lived in a place where nobody told him to “toughen up” the way they were always telling my brother, he lived in a place where he could wear heels and lace and eyeliner and nobody told him to “be a man.”
And nobody questioned Prince’s blackness. Not a single person." #prince
