Comment This past spring the cook and food writer J. So he proposed a workaround. Rinse your uncooked rice with broth first and set aside that starchy liquid; toast the rice like crazy; then stir the broth back in, reintroducing the starches you safeguarded in step one. Then, perhaps fearing further revolt, he ended the session altogether. Today, his fans include prominent chefs Tony Maws, Alton Brown and a passionate cadre of amateur cooks, among whom his word is authoritative. He discovered that slow-cooking steak first, then pan-searing it, contra tradition, results in more even cooking and no loss of juiciness. He sings the praises of sous-vide circulators, pricey gizmos that cook food at perfectly uniform temperatures, but also devised a simple home substitute: He never adored New York, he says, and took readily to life as a suburban homebody. His take on a pulled-pork sandwich, for instance, features meat cooked sous-vide, shaped into disks, then flipped over a hot grill to crunch up the exterior:

Most of the focus is on the question of how to accomplish this ideas include cloning yourself, then using the blood of the younger clone to nourish your older body. But few discuss the spiritual implications of these projects. If the technology we create surpasses us in intelligence, does it ever have a soul?

Tinder is a location-based social search mobile app that allows users to like (swipe left) or dislike (swipe right) other users, and allows users to chat if both parties swiped to the right (a match). The app is often used as a hookup app. Information available to the users is based on pictures from Facebook, a short bio that users write themselves, and optionally, a linked Instagram or.

At a panel discussion on the issue in , a King County prosecutor said the Seattle tech community is a major sex consumer—with the most frequent buyers middle- and upper-class white men. And a law enforcement source in Seattle told Newsweek that authorities know there is a concentration of buyers in tech, and that Seattle investigators have communicated with detectives in and around San Jose County, California, the jurisdiction that includes Silicon Valley.

According to an ongoing study by the Organization of Prostitution Survivors in Seattle, reported on last year by a local news website, 63 percent of prostituted people said they met clients on company properties. A spokesman for Microsoft emailed Newsweek the following statement: The personal conduct of a tiny fraction of our , employees does not in any way represent our culture. No organization is immune to the unfortunate situation when employees act unethically or illegally.

Posted on May 11, by Scott Alexander The nation has spoken: So says the Washington Post: So says Newsweek, which renames the area Silly-Con Valley in its honor. This is, admittedly, pretty silly. But I want to take a step back and suggest a reality check. Or maybe we should try to be more quantitative about this. I looked at the latest batch of 52 startups from legendary Silicon Valley startup incubator Y Combinator.

So I also looked at the first twenty startups in the portfolio of Andreessen Horowitz , a famous Valley venture capitalist firm. One of them seemed explicitly prosocial — some kind of science education partnership company. Four of them seemed high-tech or otherwise awesome — including the obligatory aerial-surveying-with-drones company. Which is hardly that vapid — nobody would bat an eye at that if it were done by Kodak or Staples. So how come everyone thinks that they are?

Silicon Valley: A Reality Check

Jul 11, When the ocean of hype turns toxic. Past tense because the maker of fitness trackers and other gadgets began quietly liquidating last month. And it blew this money. Getting something at half-off must have been too tempting. Similar down rounds have since bedeviled the startup scene.

In August one of Silicon Valley’s hottest startups closed a $17 million round of funding. The Series A had attracted some of the biggest names in tech.

Cows require a whopping 26 pounds of feed for every one pound of edible meat produced. In a culture obsessed with high performance, that is maddeningly wasteful. Photograph by Spencer Lowell for Fortune So why not take them out of the equation?

Plato is a startup that connects programmers and engineers with mentors from companies like Amazon, Facebook, and Lyft. Plato was born out of the founders’ own inexperience managing a team the first time they tried releasing a product. Their first business idea for Birdly was a robot, integrated with the popular chat app Slack, that would simplify the process of filing expense reports.

They both come from Jewish-Iranian families. Rad has stated that the impetus for the app was his observation that “no matter who you are, you feel more comfortable approaching somebody if you know they want you to approach them. Rad has also stated that Tinder filled a gap for social sites for meeting strangers, rather than connecting with people a user already knows.

Initially, instead of a swiping motion, users would click on either a green “heart” or red “X” to select or move on from the photos shown. The average user would generally spend about an hour and a half on the app each day. Chatting on Tinder is only available between two users that have swiped right on one another’s photos. However, once you have matches on the app, the user is able to send personal photos, called “Tinder Moments”, to all matches at once, allowing each match to like or not like the photos.

The site also has verified profiles for public figures, so that celebrities and other public figures can verify they are who they are when using the app. Tinder Plus users have up to five Super Likes a day. The app notifies the user if they have been Super Liked with a blue border that surrounds the profile of the person who Super Liked them.

Silicon Valley’s “Death by Overfunding”: Next Unicorn Collapses

Jan 24, If you’re a business executive and she’s knocking at your door, it probably means your company has been accused of doing something few Americans have much tolerance for: Advertisement So, if you’re an executive in Silicon Valley — where businesses are lauded for disrupting the old way of doing things, tearing down the hierarchies of the past, making the world a better place — you’d think you’d get a pass, right?

I’m still entertained but the recycled get up, fail, come out on top again through a technically premise is getting stale. The clever humor they had in the last three seasons has diminished.

Last night Mrs Benussi said increasing numbers of women were shying away from work and marriage and looking instead for easy financial sources. Instead women want a baby.

Babies are becoming a lot more fashionable — they are becoming trophies. They are paid to stay at home and look after their baby. Last night she warned how a one-night stand or fling could leave men with a long-term financial hangover if it leads to pregnancy. Her company is dealing with an increasing number of cases involving single women falling pregnant and chasing the fathers of their children for financial support.

They can attack at any time, whether it is in the workplace or at a bar in a posh hotel. The single woman will fall pregnant and exploit her target through a legal loophole which could result in her landing a house, suitably furnished, a car and nursery, school and university fees.

O , which will enjoy big tax cuts and the chance to bring back billions of dollars from overseas at a reduced rate. And contrary to the dire warnings of California officials, a large swath of Bay Area workers and their families stand to get a tax break as well, even with new limits on state and local tax deductions. Startup employees, freelancers and venture capital investors are among those who will get new tax benefits or keep those they already have, tax experts said.

Even some of the middle- and upper-income professionals who form the core of the technology industry workforce will still get significant tax cuts, while most others will see little change, they said.

The Economist offers authoritative insight and opinion on international news, politics, business, finance, science, technology and the connections between them.

But as more details have emerged, what we all knew to be true has been slowly reasserting itself: The salacious claims have been the main PR output from a new book being pushed by tech journalist Emily Chang called Brotopia. Presumably because the details that Chang has elicited about tech-bro culture are unlikely to elicit a response greater than “yeah, that sounds about right,” her team has focused on claims of wild, drug-fueled sex parties hosted by all-male millionaires and billionaires in luxury locations to which young, nubile tech ladies are invited and then subjected to unspeakable actions.

Much of the detail however appears to be pulled from a single party hosted by VC company Draper Fisher Jurvetson DFJ with a number of attendees recalling a far less debauched version of events. The party was thrown as part of an annual conference that DFJ runs called Big Think, and the invite included no mention of drugs nor sex — something that the Vanity Fair article hilariously flags up as evidence of just how Bacchanalian these Silicon Valley folk are: Except no one seems to recall any drugs.

Which, for this corner of California, is notable in itself. This is, after all, the birthplace of the Summer of Love. Drugs and sex are as much as part of Northern Cali culture as hiking and weird health kicks. One of the most salacious details covers a “cuddle puddle” where a small area of floor was covered in pillows, the lighting was dimmed, and people laid down and… cuddled. It even extended to heavy petting. Which is so outrageous it is banned at public swimming baths.
