Weekend Round-Up The Only Land We Have, Baking With 4,500 Year Old Yeast, And The Great Hack
The Great Hack – Netflix
Digital privacy has been a topic of conversation for a long while now, and Netflix has made sure we’ll keep talking about it with “The Great Hack.” This chilling documentary plunges into Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica scandal, however more importantly gives a startling knowledge into the data business (presently greater than oil), and its power to sway the masses – be it for commercial or political purposes — without anybody noticing.

Baking with 4,500 Year Old Yeast – @SeamusBlackley
If any of you follow me on Instagram , you’ll realize that I am a major foodie. I love cooking and smoking meat in particular because I’m super into the cooking process and artfulness it takes to produce genuinely amazing flavor. At the point when I saw this tweet thread appear in my Twitter channel, I realized it planned to be a decent one. I will not spoil an excessive number of details, however I am eager to see updates on this experiment in the future.

You are not a brand – Fast Company
“you must form your personal brand,” is a piece of advice that’s frequently dispensed to young people hoping to make a name for themselves – however what exactly is a “personal brand,” and is it actually solid counsel? As we probably are aware from the watch world, it’s easy to create a sham brand off the back of false history. Maybe “branding” isn’t the way to consider the big picture. This article explores alternative ways to take a gander at it.

How Scientists Colorize Photos of Space – Vox
In “Until” news today – that’s internet speak for Today I learned – we dive into the process of how exactly those photos from the hubble telescope of distant galaxies and nebulae are shaded. I’m certain at this point we’re all familiar or have been momentarily entranced by seeing historical photos colorized, yet it turns out pictures of space are significantly more required than combining red, green, and blue sifted negatives. Before I continue attempting to seem like a smarty pants, look at the video explainer video from Vox and I promise you’ll never take a gander at a desktop background of space the same again.

This Land Is the Only Land There Is – The Atlantic
As somebody who lives in New York City and regularly takes the subway, it is hard to reject that climate change is real. I mean, have you felt the temperature in the Broadway/Lafayette station in August? It’s essentially a human easy bake broiler moderate roasting us commuters…
For those of you who require a touch more science, look at this article from The Atlantic. Robinson Meyer made a decent showing summarizing the new IPCC report (IPCC = the UN-drove Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) into seven central issues. I strongly recommend you check it out.
