You'd be surprised to discover how often you check Instagram. True you might only spend a few minutes total scrolling through it every day, but if you're anything like me—i.e. committed to staying off social media for a month—you'll come to find you check your apps almost compulsively, at all hours of the day.

This is a starting point of what Theresa May would like overtime. The other question is, how fast can this be achieved? That is the main concern, that there is a cliff edge, that after two years of negotiation we go over the edge.

Chalk this one up to mysteries of the deep: a female zebra shark in an Australian aquarium has reproduced asexually, giving birth to three baby sharks without the contribution of a man-shark or any male DNA. Get it, single lady. As the New Scientist reports , lady shark Leonie was matched with a fellow from 1999 to 2012 and gave birth to dozens of offspring before the partners were separated into different tanks and no new dude was introduced into her life. Fast forward to 2016, and despite her isolation and lack of access to a sperm bank, the independent woman still managed to reproduce three baby sharks. Ensuing DNA testing proves that the offspring are Leonie's own through and through, and don't retain any residual stored sperm. In other words: single motherhood, for the win. This is not the first tracked instance of single females in captivity figuring out a way to make kids without a Y chromosome; both an eagle ray and a boa constrictor were seen to have switched from sexual to asexual reproduction, the journal notes, and there are examples of female turkeys, other sharks , and snakes reproducing asexually when they've never had a male partner.

Amid speculation that Donald Trump's pick for Labor Secretary, Andrew Puzder, may have lost his appetite for the job, the fast food CEO's personal financial disclosure documents are being kept from public view. When -- and if -- the Office of Government Ethics releases these documents, we'll get a clearer picture of the grand fortune Puzder has built up in his 16 years as the chief of CKE, the company behind the Hardee's and Carl's Jr. chains. But even the incomplete data CKE has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission make clear that Puzder has received massive rewards for exploiting his low-wage labor force. In just the four-year period of 2009-2012, SEC filings show Puzder made $27.5 million in total compensation, with a peak haul in 2011 of $10.1 million. (After 2012, CKE no longer had to report executive compensation data because it had become privately held.

It was always the gearhead in me that was trying to make something on the cheap using parts available. As far as cars, I had a little SAAB Sonnet we put a Ford V8 in to. It was a fiberglass body so that left it open for aerodynamic mods, which worked out really well. When we started driving it fast in the open road races in Nevada, we found it had a lot of lift on the rear end. So, I built a rounded nose for it to decrease drag and installed a wing I designed myself on the back. The final version of that, we had a supercharged V8 in it making about 540 horsepower. The fastest I ever got that was 175 mph, without the supercharger. When we got the supercharger and the fuel injection working correctly, I sold it to a guy who then won the Texas open road race two years in a row and was clocked on radar at 202mph. It was a movinmachine. I had a Chenoweth frame dune buggy with a Corvair motor in it.

We discussed Werners history of filmmaking and I briefed him on the myriad of advances made possible by the invention of the Internet. A magnificent and intriguing beginning to a journey I still didnt fully understand. Fast-forward to when Dave Arnold, ECD of Pereira O'Dell New York and trusted creative friend, embarked on a journey with me to create something for Netscout that transcended traditional B-to-B marketing. We needed something that would travel beyond our media spend and connect with an ever more advertising-averse audience. After a few proposed concepts Dave and his team came back with a long shot of an idea, What do you think about doing commercial shorts with Werner Herzog? I started to hear Werner's rich Teutonic voice narrate the importance of the connected world in my head. Why not? There's certainly no harm in trying, I said, harboring some doubt.

Fast and slow talkers end up conveying information at about the same rate, research shows, because faster speech packs less information into each utterance. The study suggests we tend to converse within a narrow channel of communication data so that we do not provide too much or too little information at a given time, says Uriel Cohen Priva, author of the study in the journal Cognition and assistant professor in the department of cognitive, linguistic, and psychological sciences at Brown University. It seems the constraints on how much information per second we should transmit are fairly strict, or stricter than we thought they were, Cohen Priva says. In information theory, rarer word choices convey greater lexical information, while more complicated syntax, such as passive voice, conveys greater structural information.

Or if you’ve been looking around longer, very old paradigms rediscovered. All the old, may have new uses. The New System Oops. Yes, it’s still in the making. Many voices around the world talk about this. Here are some of my suggestions to include: Science has to embrace the new realities it is discovering. If everything is intricately connected in a delicate system, then science can’t continue being of service to big corporations, creating lump solutions to drive profit. True science should be: How is it all hanging together? And more importantly: What impact would this ‘solution’ have for the whole system of life on this planet? Just bringing new products to the market for fast profits has to lose out to making choices that help heal, improve the whole web to flourish. Better saws to cut trees, agricultural chemicals, GMO’s and cheaper plastics would get way more scrutiny before even slightly considered.
