  • Ever tried getting someone from the US to make a bank transfer? The system implemented there has made it so that people are more inclined to the "convenience" of swiping some more charges into the credit a opposed to using their actual funds, or god forbid a secure means of going through with a transaction... Let's see when the obsolete SWIFT gets replaced.

  • It it hilarious to imagine the infinite power of memes in the post-network era.

    If 4Chan indeed helped make Trump president then it is only the tip of the iceberg regarding the reach internauts have in real life.

  • "[...]the original product was developed “to remove all friction from sharing” without prompts to “contextualize or comment” on forwarded content, a dangerous precedent that — when put in an environment where people are less educated, less experienced about the web — can have dire consequences."

    Is it really WhatsApp's fault that rampant ignorance has real social consequences when empowered with technology?

  • Very interesting read on the beginning of a worldwide trend in marketing, no longer selling a product, but selling a lifestyle.

  • The author of this article has only investigated sources based in America, his conclusive statements and affirmations can attest that while he has tried $9 CBD infused coffee, he hasn't dug much deeper than that for this piece. For starters there is a book by Mary Minchin called "CBD Made Easy" that explains the functions of CBD first within the Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol molecule and subsequently within the human body. "Anyone who tells you anything definitive about what CBD — or THC, for that

    The author of this article has only investigated sources based in America, his conclusive statements and affirmations can attest that while he has tried $9 CBD infused coffee, he hasn't dug much deeper than that for this piece. For starters there is a book by Mary Minchin called "CBD Made Easy" that explains the functions of CBD first within the Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol molecule and subsequently within the human body. "Anyone who tells you anything definitive about what CBD — or THC, for that matter — does to your body is lying. Nobody knows." is frankly lazy journalism and an easy way of saying "I limited my research to the FDA website".

    He then goes on to say "Both of these compounds stimulate the same receptor in the brain, called CB1, but have differing effects on the brain. Researchers aren’t totally sure why." but researchers know that this is because of the effect of each cannabinoid within the system, there is also neglect of mentioning the endocannabinoid system or how there are more plant species with CBD content like Nigella Sativa or hops.

    The discussion should be broadened into taking other markets and research into account, but I do coincide with the notion that CBD is profiting on the cannabis craze sweeping the USA, but not all CBD is extracted equally.

  • Interesting how the fitness industry is taking the example of people shopping through reviews, only in this case the review is (as stated by the author) "skinny white women in fitness bras"

    Perhaps as an American girl you could go to the gym with all the skinny white girls, but in reality other girls would be looking for the gym with multi-cultural girls that have nice butts...

    Regardless of what you look for(or at) in a fitness influencer, they have become the new USP for their industry... (Also

    Regardless of what you look for(or at) in a fitness influencer, they have become the new USP for their industry... (Also, this is just nitpicking, but the author has a typo on the second paragraph...)

  • THIS is a blast from the past, I kind of feel a sense of melancholy but at the same time it is shocking to see how quickly time flew by

  • Interesting piece on the future of cameras... As the trend to downsizing continues, cameras are getting smarter

  • Sorry diplomat... This is a bit of a controversial one for me, while in Kenya diplomats have the opportunity and sometimes indulge in abuser of power, the Trump administration has chosen to interfere in the privacy of people's bedrooms, diplomat's bedrooms and impose such laws... It is definitely a great conversation starter.
