The world’s oceans are the warmest they’ve ever been in recorded human history.


In 2019, the world’s oceans were the warmest they’ve ever been in recorded human history, and over the past 25 years, the amount of heat we’ve put into our oceans is equivalent to the energy released by 3.6 billion Hiroshima atom bomb explosions. Scientists say the only reasonable explanation for this extent of warming is human emissions.

The beginning stage of a project can be overwhelming. Power through and reach success by prioritizing and aligning your goals.


When I was preparing to launch my company’s core product­­­­­—a technology management software—I ran into several hurdles that I didn’t expect. I severely underestimated the scope of the build and the amount of time it would take to develop features and product sets, and I definitely hadn’t narrowed my focus enough.

With a shoe-in like ‘Frozen 2’ out of the race, this could be a banner year for indie animated films at the Oscars.


The nominations for the 92nd Academy Awards are in, and, as usual, snubs abound: Women directors including Greta Gerwig (Little Women) and Melina Matsoukas (Queen & Slim) were shut out completely. Jennifer Lopez’s buzzy performance in Hustlers didn’t make the cut. Lupita Nyong’o’s haunting turn in Us appeared to count for nothing.

A new study found the effects on inequality from lowering global temperature via limiting the sun that reaches the Earth could be massive. But can we get those same effects simply by reducing carbon emissions in a less risky way?


Climate change has made the world more unequal. As the planet has warmed, poor countries have gotten poorer while some rich countries got richer, and that disparity is expected to only increase as temperatures do.

Is this a simulation?




The manga series Akira, created by Japanese Artist Katsuhiro Otomo, and first published  in 1982, was set in the future: 2019. And though written long before a host city announcement was made, the backdrop for the action in Akira is eerily accurate: it took place during the 2020 Olympics. In Tokyo. This prediction and its relative implausibility might make you question the nature of time and space. How could Otomo have known? And while that’s a discussion for another day, the Tokyo Olympics have, in some sense, brid

Professor Karen Cates of Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management finds that likable leaders may be perceived as good leaders but may not fully be achieving what is required of them.


When presented baldly it can seem self-evident, but it is remarkable how few managers really adhere to the approach that when you treat people well, with respect, and give them some responsibility, they are more likely to perform better. This is the core of people-centered—or human-centered—leadership, and it works.

The concept of “home” appears to be undergoing a fundamental transformation.


For years, life went something like this: We’d grow up in one place, head off to college, then find a city to live in for a few years at time to pursue a job or higher education. The end goal was to find somewhere to settle down for the long haul, buy a house, start a family, and begin the whole cycle all over again.

This is an excellent week to stop taking generic Zantac: The FDA announced recalls of batches of ranitidine from two more manufacturers, Appco Pharma and Northwind Pharmaceuticals, due to the presence of a carcinogenic called NDMA, and last week an independent lab advised that the medication should be pulled from shelves entirely, because NDMA levels increase when the medication is stored in mild heat like a warm car or stuffy closet.
