Orange is the new green

"Netflix service in Chicago is about to get notably more expensive. On the hunt for new revenue, Chicago's Department of Finance is applying two new rules that would impact companies like Netflix and Spotify. One covers "electronically delivered amusements" and another covers "nonpossessory computer leases"; together they form a unique and troubling new attempt by cities to tax any city resident that interacts with "the cloud. According to the Chicago Tribune, streaming service providers need to start collecting the tax starting September 1."

"These explorations will take us in two main directions. One, wherein we seek to perfect our understanding of fundamentals, is the direction of depth We will find hidden connections among aspects of the world that at present seem separate: superficially different forces—force and substance, material and spacetime, history and law, information and action, mind and matter. The other, wherein we apply our knowledge, is the direction of growth. We will vastly expand the human sensorium. We will develop self-repairing, self-assembling, and self-reproducing machines will be developed, enabling the emergence of titanic computers and engineering projects. Advanced numerical and quantum simulations, augmenting more sophisticated understanding of matter, will revolutionize chemistry, medicine, and materials science—and usher in the age of quantum intelligence. Artists and scientists will collaborate to create beauty in rich new forms."

 
Nobel Prize-winning physicist Frank Wilczek forecasts the next 100 years. If he’s right, we’re in for an mind-blowing future.

It's not over yet folks!

"A secret US tribunal ruled late Monday that the National Security Agency is free to continue its bulk telephone metadata surveillance program—the same spying that Congress voted to terminate weeks ago.

In setting aside an appellate court's ruling that the program was illegal, the FISA Court ruled that "Congress deliberately carved out a 180-day period following the date of enactment in which such collection was specially authorized. For this reason, the Court approves the application (PDF) in this case."
Thought Congress put a halt to the snooping program Snowden exposed? Think again.

Freakin Awesome!

"Gunhild Swanson broke a record on Tuesday when she became the oldest runner to cross the finish line at the 2015 Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run at age 70. Swanson crossed the finish line just six seconds before the race's 30-hour cut off, meaning she took home one of the race's prized bronze belt buckles for her achievement."

Common Sense

"If you ignore that pulsing, throbbing pain in your head long enough, it'll go away eventually — right?

While it's hopefully just a small headache, a migraine is usually recurring and severe enough to make you feel nauseous or sensitive to light. If left untreated, migraines can last for up to 72 hours."


Here's how technology is making your headaches worse, according to a neurologist.

"People love life hacks. These simple tips and tricks force you to look at things in a whole new light, and they can often be game-changers in the most surprising ways. For instance, who knew that all it took was a few inches of duct tape to ensure you never have to struggle to open a jar again? And who knew that a few crumpled up balls of aluminum foil could save you a trip to the store to buy batteries?"

This, this, and this!

"Open a paper, turn to the International section, and look under ‘Africa.’ Chances are, you’re highly likely to find images of war, starvation, hunger, or disease. That’s why a group of young Africans on Twitter, organized under the hashtag #TheAfricaTheMediaNeverShowsYou, got together and started sharing powerful and positive images of their continent. From large stadiums to contemporary architecture to high fashion, the campaign has already earned tens of thousands of tweets, and is adding more by the second."
#TheAfricaTheMediaNeverShowsYou is giving people across the continent a way to share their uplifting stories and images.

Talent upon talent!

"An 18-year-old girl became a viral star and designed a dress for a celebrity all in one month.

Kyemah McEntyre, who created her own prom dress to an applause heard 'round the Internet, designed a gown for an actress at Sunday night's BET Awards."

"Were you hoping that the first trailer for Snowden, Oliver Stone's upcoming political biopic, would include a glimpse of Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the bespectacled title character? What about a look at Shailene Woodley as Snowden's longtime girlfriend, Lindsay Mills?

Too bad; you're out of luck. Instead, the moody teaser features close-up shots of an American flag, excerpts from Snowden's biography — "Army recruit at 20. Joined CIA at 22. NSA contractor at 26. By age 29, the most wanted man in the world" — and a gloomy cover of "This Little Light of Mine."
The first trailer for Oliver Stone's 'Snowden' is heavy on the moody images, but light on the Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Another fail...

"On the video, Dorsey is heard waiting patiently in line for more than 5 minutes. When he reaches the check-in counter, he informs the desk he needs a transfer from the Athens, Georgia, VA system and an appointment
.
The response?

"We're not accepting any new patients — not this clinic," the VA employee behind the desk says, without providing any extra information, assistance or follow-on guidance for treatment."
 
And it's happening to pretty much everybody, including me, which is why I just sort of sigh and close the tab when someone asks me, "Why don't you just go to the VA hospital?"

Me and about a million vets would be highly obliged if you were to reshare this. Much love.
Iraq war veteran Chris Dorsey figured that no one would believe he had been turned away from a VA clinic when he sought an appointment for

Yes, I'm a veteran and I see those assholes screw people out of medical care and other benefits. They've perfected it like an art.
