Bill Gates is one of the richest people in the world. So when he doles out advice about how to spend money wisely, it's a good idea to listen. Gates' latest investment tip?

In an interview with C-SPAN, Gates said he disagrees with Trump's [...]

A study looking at 21 years of data on genetically modified crops (GMOs) in the US has found that not only can they increase crop yields, but they can also be good for you. Published in Scientific Reports, the team was led by Elisa Pellegrino from the Institute of Life Sciences in Italy. They conducted a meta-analysis of 6,006 peer-reviewed studies from 1996 to 2016 on maize that had been genetically engineered. Only 76 publications, however, met the researchers' high standards for inclusion. The results showed that genetically engineered (GE) maize produced a greater yield of 5.6 to 24.5 percent [...]

Everyone agrees that crime is bad ... except some criminals, we suppose. So what can we do about it? Some people believe in rehabilitation, some preach incarceration, while others support systematically murdering billionaire parents and hoping for an army of Batmen down the line. We might have made up that last one, but some of the most common crimefighting techniques in use today are so objectively terrible that they make Batseeding seem practical.

The Florida school where an expelled student on Valentines Day was named after a champion of environmentalism, womens suffrage and civil rights who received the Presidential Medal of Freedom when she was 103, thereby proving what you can accomplish if your life is not cut short by a bullet. The same day in 1993 when Marjory Stoneman Douglas received the medal from President Bill Clinton at the White House, she was invited to witness the signing of the Brady Bill, which established a federal background check for those seeking to purchase firearms. One eventual result was that Nikolas Cruz was [...]

Everyone loves Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. The guy isn’t just an all-around superstar — he’s an inspiration, too. That’s why so many people flock to his Instagram every time he shares a photo or video. Ladies and gentlemen, this is Pablo. He’s a star. He’s the monkey who starred in Pirates of the Caribbean with that John Depp fella. The other one is the big, brown, bald, tattooed silverback who stars in RAMPAGE. We’re comparing IQ’s. The monkey’s intellectually superior. As per yoosh. Lotta fun promoting RAMPAGE with my buddy here. He told he to f*ck off when I told [...]

"Boys are broken," wrote comedian Michael Ian Black on Feb. 14th. Just hours earlier, a gunman shot and killed 17 students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The tragedy led Black to get a bit introspective about his gender and speculate the role society's more toxic messages play in these much-too-frequent massacres. "Until we fix men, we need to fix the gun problem," he wrote on Twitter. "The last 50 years redefined womanhood: Women were taught they can be anything. No commensurate movement for men who are still generally locked into the same rigid, outdated [...]

That's why, over time, we've learned to stop eating random berries in the forest and pay attention to what exactly we're putting into our food holes. But while we assume that our restaurants, grocery stores, and farmers are being honest about what they're selling, the horrific truth is that what they're truly feeding us are lies. Damn lies. And sometimes mold. Carol Franzia/Bronco WineYes, this one has a very nice garden hose bouquet. Read Next 5 A Third Of All Fish [...]
