1. Make the most of fitness by mastering this one technique
When it comes to fitness, the focus tends to fall on active minutes and “sweat time.” As it turns out, how you breathe between movement matters just as much.
2. The moral dilemmas of self-driving cars
Is your car autopilot is going to save you or save the 10 pedestrians about to be run over by your car? Technology needs to have moral values.. This article sheds some lights on the challenges ahead
3. Distances covered by Moon/Mars rovers
This cool graphic all the space rovers and the distances they’ve covered. Who will win the race?
4. Book of the week: Factfulness
It’s oftentimes easy to look at the state of the world and get depressed at the way things are going, or to be disappointed at the lack of progress. The wonderful thing about this book is that Hans shows, with undeniable fact based statistics, that that just isn’t the case. There is more progress than ever before, and the future is brighter than you’d believe. We’re just basing our beliefs on “instincts” that need re-wiring. This positive outlook couldn’t come at a better time, and I highly recommend the read. (Contributed by Will T.)
5. Game of the week: Inside
This game has zero voiceovers, no text dialogue, and yet, conveys so many different emotions, and layers of interpretation. Truly a work of art in video game form. And available on almost ever platform you can think of.
