Nothing better than cheese!

The future and extent of encryption may boil down to this...
- strong encryption / customer privacy, or
- business models that rely on capturing and extracting value from customer data

... which is more valuable to companies?

Having spent a few years helping the ultra-wealthy invest their wealth, I can unequivocally say (1) there are legitimate reasons for secrecy/off-shore accounts, and (2) many wealthy individuals and families are honorable and not looking for ways to violate laws or their responsibilities to society.

That said, I believe the ‪#‎PanamaPapers‬ are going to put the spotlight on how some lawyers, bankers, and 'the system' help criminals.

It's Morgan Freeman. The trailer gave me goose-bumps. And they may talk about my tiny religion: Zoroastrianism. So, yeah... you could say I'm excited!

Starting price at $35k - how does that compare in the US to new family style sedans? It is a beautiful car.

Hey @Claire... with government subsidies aimed at promoting electric cars, the purchase price ends up being below $30K. That puts it in the neighborhood / just below the base-models of Mercedes and Audi's entry-level cars. A new Mazda or VW on the other hand is about $20K.

That said, I understand the base model of the Tesla comes with features that aren't standard in other cars. If you add those technologies to the other cars, I imagine the calculus will change a bit.

Architecture not your thing? The National Building Museum in Washington DC got creative to show you otherwise! Go on... give art and design a chance.

Wow. For decades entire communities have been brushed off as "paranoid conspiracy theorists". How do you even begin to make amends?!

sure, just another fairy tale. As much as I can't stand any politician but this is made up story.

Would love to get more of your thinking, Jason. When I first saw it I was skeptical / hoping it wasn't true, so I did a quick search and a few reputable news agencies had run stories about it.

the idea is that black supremacists are as bad as the white ones, This days hate groups like The Black Live Matter have revolving doors in the White House. Sort of like black KKK.
