Science Shows What You Think Will Make You Happy Probably Won’t

Science says there’s a good chance you don’t what really makes you happy. When estimating our happiness, we humans tend to engage in something called “impact bias” where we overestimate the actual effect that different outcomes will have on our life.

When if they think they’d be happier winning the lottery or becoming paraplegic, most people quite understandably respond that they’d be happier with all that money and no handicap.

Still, real life statistics show that one year after winning the lottery or losing the use of their lower body, people in both these groups are equally happy. Yes, really, EQUALLY.

Landmark Study Shows Legal Marijuana Sales Reduce Crime

The researchers noted that medical marijuana dispensaries actually increase the ‘walkability score’ of a neighborhood which deters criminal activity. What this study illustrates is that Sessions’ policies of bringing back D.A.R.E., continuing to clamp down on pot, and removing state’s rights, would not only be detrimental to fighting the opioid epidemic, but it would also create more crime.

Intense Solar CME Shockwave Hits Magnetosphere | S0 News July.16.2017

The intense CME shockwave struck around 6am UTC, causing immediate magnetosphere compression and delivering vastly increased electro-magnetic pressure on the Earth’s system. The shockwave was very dense, and geo-magnetic disruptions are underway. Major troubles with transformers, airlines and airport radar, GPS, internet, and communications can begin at any time and last through the peak of the geo-magnetic disturbance, but it shouldn’t be as bad as it could have been.

Tech Billionaires Are Secretly Funding a Plan to Break the Human Race out of The Matrix

In recent years, a number of high-profile figures have come out to state their belief that we are living in a simulation. Chief among them is tech magnate Elon Musk, who has stated that the video game No Man’s Sky confirmed his belief that someday simulations would approximate reality so comprehensively that they would be indistinguishable from reality. When he was asked about whether humans are living inside a computer simulation, Musk made headlines last year by saying he thinks the chances are one in billions that we aren’t.

US Intel Agency Funding Research Into Wildly Accurate Mind Reading Technology

Even more unsettling is who is funding the mindreading research and, evidently, has a stake in it: the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) via the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA), an organization within ODNI. According to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence’s own website, the government organization’s roots can be traced back to the early years of the CIA.

What Caused the First Human Death in Self-Driving Car: Sensors “Aren’t Sophisticated Enough…”

Tesla’s sensors were not “sophisticated enough to overcome blindness from bright or low contrast light.” Videographers know how easily blown-out light that is too bright can ruin an otherwise well-composed shot. Cameras can do a lot, but digital sensors aren’t usually good at compensating for this issue.
