Elon Musk built the world’s biggest battery–in just two months

Swarovski delves into man-made gems

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 10:12:17 GMT

As man-made stones make a bigger dent in the jewelry industry, luxe labels are more readily adopting them. The New York Times reports that Atelier Swarovski–the brand that collaborates with designers such as Jason Wu and Christopher Kane–is now using diamonds and emeralds created in labs. These are far different from inexpensive diamond substitutes, such as …

Small ISP disputes FCC claim that net neutrality hurts small ISPs

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 08:11:48 GMT

After 50 pages of legalese, the FCC’s new order on net neutrality makes its case for why regulations are bad for broadband companies and consumers. The biggest argument—pushed by major ISPs like Comcast—is that “Open Internet Order” regulations have made ISPs gun-shy about investing, depressing spending by billions per year. Ironically, Comcast was among several ISPs …

After 50 pages of legalese, the FCC’s new order on net neutrality makes its case for why regulations are bad for broadband companies and consumers. The biggest argument—pushed by major ISPs like Comcast—is that “Open Internet Order” regulations have made ISPs gun-shy about investing, depressing spending by billions per year. Ironically, Comcast was among several ISPs that actually increased investment in that time period. Analysis by Morgan Stanley says that wireless carriers may have over-invested because they were too optimistic about the demand for faster service.

Why Is Gratitude So Difficult, Yet Outrage So Easy?

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 08:00:20 GMT

At a time of year that reminds us to be grateful, brain science explains why we aren’t quick to say thanks.

Our brains are at odds with the concept of Thanksgiving. Gratitude should be the order of the day (and every day if you subscribe to the notion that giving thanks daily can make you happier), yet we are much more likely to be outraged by traffic delays, rude people, and a barrage of headlines blaring the latest bad news.

How Mother Teresa & Smart Career Advice Inspired “Novitiate” Director Maggie Betts

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 06:00:49 GMT

In her first narrative feature, about nuns grappling with changes in a 1960s convent, Betts explored religious devotion while finding her own authority as an artist.

Halfway through making her 2010 documentary The Carrier, about an HIV-positive pregnant woman, director Maggie Betts was already hungering to create a narrative feature. To stage a story not as is, but how it plays in her head became an alluring prospect that she couldn’t shake–and one that seemed doable based on three tenets a producer once told her to abide by.

Food Banks’ Massive Plan To Move From Canned Goods To Fresh Produce

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 06:00:03 GMT

By tackling our national problem of wasted fruits and vegetables, food banks think they can also get vital, nutritious food to people who lack access.

On the Thursday before Thanksgiving, in a room inside City Harvest’s 45,500-square-foot distribution warehouse at the southern tip of Long Island City, Queens, around 30 volunteers assemble boxes and move them down a makeshift assembly line, where others fill them with ingredients for a holiday meal: bags of sweet potatoes, stripetti and delicata squash, canned beans and pumpkin.

Ten Surprising Things We Learned From A Year Of Longreads

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 17:01:21 GMT

What “made in America” looks like now, how to get rich on reviews, why you could be fired in 28 states, and other lessons from some of our favorite stories.

Fast Company spilled a lot of ink in 2017. We wrote—a lot—about sexism in Silicon Valley, fake news, and our tweeter-in-chief. But we also spent time digging into Samsung’s attempt to beat Apple to a health wearable, the history of Pac-Man, and the rise of dessert-based activism.

John Waters Doesn’t Need To Make Movies To Make Trouble

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 16:20:51 GMT

The famed filmmaker, artist, and writer has a new album, a global spoken-word tour, and a bunch of jobs that don’t involve making films.

Despite the fact that he has “never graduated from anything,” John Waters was invited by the Rhode Island School of Design to deliver its 2015 commencement address. In his speech, Waters urged the graduating class to cause trouble. “Go out in the world and fuck it up beautifully,” he advised. “Design clothes so hideous they can’t be worn ironically. Horrify us with new ideas. Outrage outdated critics. Use technology for transgression, not lazy social living. Make me nervous.”

This Giving Platform Lets Kids Donate To Other Kids

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 14:00:50 GMT

Daymaker wants to give young people a chance to experience the power of philanthropy (with their parents money, of course).

When you give kids cash, they tend to sock it away in a piggy bank in order to buy something special someday. Which means most probably don’t consider that those funds could actually go toward charity instead of consumerism.

What I Learned Watching 11 Very Special Thanksgiving Episodes In A Row

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 13:00:51 GMT

Here are some lessons you might learn while watching other people learn The True Meaning of Thanksgiving.

“This ain’t an episode of Growing Pains,” Lena Waithe’s character says in “Thanksgiving,” the Emmy-winning episode of Master of None that Waithe co-wrote and stars in. She’s right, obviously. Not only is Master of None a more highly evolved beast than the ’80s sitcom that gave the world a pre-born again Kirk Cameron, this particular episode of the show is in an entirely different league than most Very Special Episodes of television.
