This is how you announce a major scientific breakthrough: (8 min video, very worth a look). You start the press conference by "We have detected gravitational waves, we did it!" followed by explanations so clear and interesting that your eyes tear up in awe. This man's name is David Reitze and he's the executive director of LIGO. Hopefully they put him in front of cameras more often.

What I loathe about some publishers: when they know a piece they publish is fake, but still decide to leave in online - to get advertising views.

Before you criticize Jack Ma, the CEO of Alibaba, for saying what the headline claims he said: know that this whole piece is garbage and fake. Jack Ma never said this.

If David Ogilvy's famous saying is still true today, 80% of people never read past the headline, so 80% of people might believe Jack Ma was an asshole.

This piece not only tarnishes a good reputation of an honorable and otherwise humble man, but it says a lot about that online publisher VulcanPost.

Another publisher debunked this: http://mothership.sg/2014/12/biggest-lie-of-2014-jack-ma-did-not-write-that-article-about-how-you-deserve-it-if-youre-poor-at-35/

And what does VulcanPost do? They edit their original bullshit post with a disclaimer at the bottom of the post: "Disclaimer: Mothership.sg has very kindly brought to our attention that the original post of this article may not be as reliable as we thought. Upon further deliberation, we have decided not to remove the article because there is still lessons that can be learn from the article itself, as pointed out to us by some of our readers."

Takeaway: raise your awareness about the headlines you never click and refuse to make decisions based on what you do NOT read. Many headlines are misleading, some (like this one) are fake for advertising views, and some are downright malicious, exploiting the lack of time to read the whole article.

This is why I use an ad blocker. VulcanPost did not earn a damn penny for deceiving me.

P.S. if you're wondering about who Jack Ma is, this 4 min video is great: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCr9-7It7fY - he's a billionaire entrepreneur and a great inspiration.
Jack Ma is a Chinese Internet entrepreneur. He is the Executive Chairman of Alibaba Group, a family of highly successful Internet-based businesses.

Experimental treatment never before tried on humans gets results: "Layla’s doctors got permission to use an experimental form of gene therapy using genetically engineered immune cells from a donor. Within a month these cells had killed off all the cancerous cells in her bone marrow."

Gene editing, named the most significant scientific breakthrough in 2015, is promising. Yes, this baby was saved with something that has the words genetically engineered in it. Does anyone have a problem with that? I don't.

The most important car of the 21st century will be unveiled in two months. You won't be able to drive it at least until 2018, but I can't stress enough how important it is that this model catches on. It will be the first low(er)-cost, 100% electrical car in the world, aimed at the middle class. I believe that the adoption of this model can speed up the demise of the fossil fuel industry, and I believe that, based on the events that will follow the launch of this car, the world can transition to fully clean personal transportation much sooner than 2050.
 
"Speaking to Reuters, Tesla spokeswoman Khobi Brooklyn confirmed that the “Model 3 is on schedule” and will be unveiled in March of this year. Brooklyn further added that the company fully expects to start selling the car to consumers in 2017."

The Model 3: 200+ miles of range, seats 5, price = $35K, can use Tesla Superchargers
Since its release in 2012, the performance, ingenuity, safety, and commercial success of Tesla's Model S has far exceeded almost everyone's expectations. The forward-thinking luxury sedan has accum...

Veganism is going mainstream in the US. Good news! And also an advice on how to successfully influence your friends to eat less meat: stop making veganism about animal welfare (most people don't care that much about animals), start making veganism about their own health!: Read this article too for more stats and data: http://www.foodnavigator-usa.com/Markets/Vegan-is-going-mainstream-trend-data-suggests

Touch without the touchscreen for $49 - I have no idea how they make this work, but it's cool. No Macs yet, though.
Check out AirBar by Neonode. It is a sensor bar that you attach beneath your PC screen. Then you can pinch, swipe, zoom and scroll to your hearts delight. Launching on CES in January and is available for pre-order right now. Plug-and-Touch, when you need it!
