Warm water rushing under ‘Doomsday Glacier,’ scientists warn | The Byte

“Things are heating up at the Thwaites glacier in Antarctica — popularly known as the ‘Doomsday Glacier’ — which, not to put too fine a point on it, is a very worrying thing. Should it completely melt, scientists have long warned that it contains enough water to raise sea levels by more than two feet worldwide — hence its ominous nickname.”

Dice Cream - Dessert technology just got cooler — and a whole lot more autonomous | [Partner]

Years from now, we’ll forget that ice cream was ever scooped by hand. Why? Because the dessert industry is getting automatednbsp;— by way of a robotic arm that scoops and serves ice cream entirely on its own. Dice Cream, named for its signature square-shaped scoops, is introducing its highly efficient robotic servers to malls, arenas, and campuses, giving high-traffic areas easier access to sweet treats. With a functioning prototype and plans to test-run the product across Asia, Dice Cream is looking to bring automated ice cream to The States. Join the movement today with a minimum investment of $250, and get bonus shares for investing $1,500 or more. [Ad]

The misleading, wasteful way we measure gas mileage, explained | Vox

“Time for a pop quiz. Which of these trades saves more gas: A) Swapping a car that gets 25 miles per gallon (MPG) for one that gets 50 MPG, or B) Replacing a car that gets 10 MPG with one that gets 15 MPG? If you said that A conserves more gas, you’re mistaken. And it’s not even close. … If you answered wrong, don’t be too hard on yourself. You’ve succumbed to the MPG Illusion, a widespread fallacy that can easily distort perceptions of a car’s efficiency and muddle debates about transportation and climate policy.”

The world's revolt against 'bad tourists' | BBC

“As the recent rallies in the Canary Islands have highlighted, many residents in over-touristed places increasingly want a better type of tourist. … On the yes list: tourists who spend money in local shops, boost the local economy, and behave respectfully. On the no list: boozy tourists who behave badly, disrespect local traditions, and negatively affect local lives and lifestyles.”

The Kingdom Hearts games, ranked from worst to best | Kotaku

“The Kingdom Hearts franchise is finally coming to Steam next month (most of it is, at least), and now people who don’t like the Epic Games Store will be able to see Sora, Donald, and Goofy’s story from start to finish. But like any long-running franchise, the series has had its high points and low points. With a bunch of new players and old fans alike about to jump into the Disney x Final Fantasy crossover, we thought we’d pit 11 baddies against each other and rank the series from worst to best. Grab your keyblades and your closest anthropomorphic animal friend, it’s time to start a keyblade war.”

Founder’s Corner: The struggle is real — and it’s worth it

If you’re fundraising right now, here’s some key advice on how to get the most out of your investors and advisors. Many people will tell you that giving up .25% or .50% of equity for an "advisor" isn't worth it. I argue those people just didn't know how to extract the value out of the relationship or simply picked the wrong advisor. And in many cases, the value is provided in one conversation 4, 5, or even 10 years down the road when that advisor makes an intro that leads to an M&A or fundraising event. I know this because I sold my company through a connection of one of my advisors! The important thing is to pick the right people to work with. Keep reading for a few specific tactics you’ll want to keep in mind.
