Meme stock guru Roaring Kitty reappears, and it’s blast off for GameStop, AMC Entertainment | Deadline

“Shares of GameStop and AMC Entertainment exploded Monday, up close to 80% and 50%, respectively, as Roaring Kitty, aka Keith Gill, the trader and Reddit celebrity who sparked the so-called meme stock revolution on Wall Street starting in early 2021, posted on X (formerly Twitter) for the first time in almost three years.”

Eli Motors - Think about this next time you’re stuck in traffic [Partner]

We can see it now. You’re sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic, wishing you had invested in the solution. You’re thinking: Dang, if more people were driving snappy little EVs, we probably wouldn’t be in this mess. And since we here at The Futurist believe in a #noregrets lifestyle, we’re gonna help you prevent all that. Investing in Eli Electric Vehicles means becoming part of the solution to urban mobility’s very fragile infrastructure. Unlike standard cars, these micro-EVs are energy efficient, affordable, and designed for cities. Your investment of $793.80 or more could mean safer, more efficient driving in urban areas — and, as a result, maybe a bit less traffic and a whole lot less honking. [Ad]

Alarmed by climate change, astronomers train their sights on Earth | New York Times

“Wildfires, exacerbated by climate change, were becoming a problem for their field. Since the 2003 Canberra bushfires, several other observatories have been damaged or threatened by fires and other extreme weather, and changing atmospheric conditions have made ground-based astronomical research more challenging. Such incidents have drawn attention to Earth’s plight, and a growing number of astronomers are rallying to fight climate change.”

Mobirise - Can’t code? No prob. [Partner]

Not everyone can be a coding whiz. And not everyone has to be to build a fully functional website. Sure, there are lots of options on the market for no-code website builders, but none are as affordable and integrated as Mobirise. To put it into numbers: You pay $70 once for access to 5,500+ website blocks, 400+ templates, and 140+ themes. When you break it down like that — and compare it to all those other pricey and confusing options — the choice is pretty obvious. [Ad]

NASA's proposed plasma rocket would get us to Mars in 2 months | Gizmodo

“NASA’s Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC) program recently selected six promising projects for additional funding and development, allowing them to graduate to the second stage of development. The new ‘science fiction-like concepts,’ as described by John Nelson, NIAC program executive at NASA, include a lunar railway system and fluid-based telescopes, as well as a pulsed plasma rocket. … The new propulsion system could drop off humans on Mars in a relatively speedy two months’ time rather than the current nine-month journey required to reach the Red Planet.”

QVC - It’s time to put your current laptop into sleep mode (... forever) | [Partner]

It’s not you. It’s not your job. It’s the laptop you’re using to get it all done. Working from your dinosaur of a computer might be noble, but it’s not really doing anyone any favors (and by anyone, we mean you). The problem is that upgrading to new tech is usually insanely expensive — but with QVC, it’s not. Shop deals on HP 15” and 17” Touch Laptops — plus bundles with a one-year subscription to Microsoft 365 included — starting at just $550. And, if you’re a new member, use code NEWQ10 to save $10 on your order. This might just be the smartest decision you’ll make all week. [Ad]

No, we aren’t all eating ‘too much’ protein | Lifehacker

“I am sick of the articles that seem to pop up every few months claiming that we are all eating ‘too much’ protein. … They tend to bolster their argument with statements that are true, like the fact that the RDA (recommended daily allowance) of protein is set at 0.36 grams per pound of body weight, that protein-boosted foods are trendy, and that it is possible to get plenty of protein while eating a vegan diet. But the framing and the conclusions don’t follow because eating more than the minimum doesn’t mean that you’re getting ‘too much’ protein.”
