Bill Gates is leading a more than $1 billion fund focused on fighting climate change by investing in clean energy innovation. “It’s such a big market that the value if you’re really providing a big portion of the world’s energy, the value of that will be super, super big.” BEV estimates the global energy market at $6 trillion, with energy demand increasing by one-third by 2040. He has personally made extensive investments in various energy technology companies over the years, including nuclear energy startup TerraPower, which he helped launch and where he serves as chairman.

Photo by Davis Turner/Getty Images When did banking apps from the big finance giants suddenly get good? Lately I’m finding the various money-related apps on my phone (Bank of America, Citibank, Capital One) to be genuinely helpful and capable of things that they couldn’t do even a year ago. (Also on Android.) It’s another of those Mint-like utilities that aggregates all of your banking and credit card accounts in one place and becomes an easy reference for when payments are due and how much money you’ve got on hand.

(Obviously, the fact that this information made it to the Rebel Alliance at all is later revealed to be part of the Emperor's trap to destroy the Rebels, which means the Bothans probably died for nothing, but I digress.) The Bothans probably died for nothing, but I digress As to what a Bothan is, and the details of the operation that caused the death of many of them, we turn to the now-defunct Star Wars Expanded Universe, which explains that Bothans are a bipedal race of furry humanoids who are spies — yes, all of them are spies, in a...

After all, the US didn’t use nuclear weapons against Iraq in the 1991 Gulf War, even though Iraq didn’t have any nuclear weapons to retaliate with. It lumps nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons into a category of weapons of mass destruction that are unusable precisely because they’re so powerful and hard to control, says Tannenwald, author of The Nuclear Taboo: The United States and the Non-Use of Nuclear Weapons Since 1945. After the bombing of Nagasaki, President Harry Truman reportedly called off any more nuclear attacks, saying, “The thought of wiping out another 100,000 people was too horrible.” “Taboo” is...

According to Shepparton News, Jaeschke spends about six hours setting up the lights for each song. This year, the display consists of 280 channels of lights, which is up from 200...

It’s not just that lots of bad and middling games exist, it’s that there aren’t enough really good ones yet to make them ignorable — at a time when we’re rarely short on fantastic non-VR games, and it’s easier to get a sense of their quality through videos or the creator’s past work. Even with all the progress made this year, the overall bar for quality for VR is set at “not literally painful.” Of course, it’s complicated for developers who can’t rely on selling games for cheap in economies of scale, since they’re working in a tiny market.

With every toss and turn, the progress I’d make in those minor weeks would roll backwards, and I’d inevitably find myself just as tired and cranky as before. A short time before my sleep issues, I’d turned my life upside down. I’d killed off my old life with about as much grace as an HBO show and never given myself the headspace to mourn it. Retreading old comforts (and this precious, quiet window of time) were permissions I didn’t know I’d been looking for: a place to think about problems or even depression without feeling selfish, conceited, or ignorant.
