Saw the eclipse and aurora? Now comes a third once-in-a-lifetime event | Forbes

“The ‘comet of the year’ is getting brighter. In the wake of the total solar eclipse and the sudden solar ‘superstorms,’ it’s looking more likely that we’ll also see a naked-eye comet later this year in the evening skies. Comet Tsuchinshan-ATLAS (C/2023 A3) is now getting brighter and growing a tail, according to Sky and Telescope. … Comets visible to the naked eye are notoriously difficult to predict in advance, but this one is expected to brighten substantially during October and possibly become as bright as Venus in the night sky. That would make it the ‘comet of the year’ — and possibly the century.”

Dice Cream - Diversifying your portfolio starts with dessert [Partner]

A few things your current portfolio is lacking: sprinkles, hot fudge, and ice cream. Seriously, imagine an investment opportunity where revolutionary robotics meets consumer delight — because that’s exactly what Dice Cream is. It’s an autonomous parlor that self-scoops and self-serves square-shaped ice cream, taking labor and maintenance costs out of the dessert industry.

Invest a minimum of $250 or $1,500+ for bonus shares. [Ad]

Mexico is so hot, monkeys are falling to their death from trees | Wired

“Brown howler monkeys are dropping dead by the dozens in southern Mexico. Between May 4 and May 21, at least 138 died, with deaths occurring in places where temperatures have been abnormally high, exceeding 109° Fahrenheit. … Organizations responding to the catastrophe note that the main cause of death seems to be heat stroke, although they haven’t ruled out other factors. … ‘The feeling of the work team is tragic, it is painful,’ says Gilberto Pozo, a wildlife biologist at the Institute of Ecology in Xalapa. He was one of the first to witness and document the current catastrophe. ‘It hurts because all the efforts we have been making for years are going down the drain,’ Pozo says, referring to recent efforts to protect the species.”

Want to be more productive? Here's how Google executives structure their schedules | Entrepreneur

“When a Google executive is feeling unproductive, they have a secret weapon: They can call the company's in-house productivity expert for help. … ‘After I ask an executive I'm coaching what their top three priorities are,’ Laura Mae Martin writes in her new book, Uptime, ‘I pull out their printed calendar from the last few weeks. I give them a highlighter and ask them to circle every meeting, task, or individual work time that relates to those three priorities. It quickly starts to become clear whether or not time spent is lining up with priorities.’ If your days often feel out of control, or if you're adding more items than you're checking off from your to-do list, you might want to run an exercise like this too. And that's just the start.”

Dogs playing in the NBA? Google's AI overviews are already spewing nonsense | PCMag

“Has a dog ever played in the NBA? Google's AI thinks so. What are some ways to keep cheese from sliding off pizza? Google recommends adding 1/8 cup of non-toxic glue, citing a sarcastic Reddit post from 2013. It's been just over a week since Google unleashed its AI Overviews to all U.S. users and reports of outlandish responses are emerging on social media. Confusing or false responses from AI are a known issue, but they are now on full display via the most popular search engine.”
