"What's driving Elon Musk?"

By Amit Katwala  via Wired UK

Elon Musk is a science-fiction character. That’s how one friend puts it. In some ways, the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla is the archetypical cartoon billionaire – Tony Stark meets The Simpsons’ Hank Scorpio – with the rockets, the rollercoaster personal life and the fast cars – one of which is currently speeding away from us at 13,000kph. Those who know Musk talk about the inevitability of his own ascension to the stratosphere. After setting up online mapping and directory service Zip2 in 1995 with his brother Kimbal, and netting $22 million from its sale four years later, Musk ploughed much of that money into, an online bank. That eventually became PayPal, which scored him a further $165 million. Musk then found another interest, and has dedicated the last 17 years of his life to it. Saving humanity from itself, as he sees it, is what wants to achieve through electric-vehicle company Tesla, rocket firm SpaceX, plus interests in energy startup Solar City, brain-hacking company Neuralink, tunnel-construction firm The Boring Company, and, of course the hyped Hyperloop. Musk’s entrepreneurial journey has been characteristically unpredictable. “He is absolutely burning the ships to shore. There is no way back. The only way to go is forward and through” Dave Lyons, former director of engineering, Tesla. Money may be a means to a larger end for Musk, but his fascination with storytelling,  “You don't get the feeling that he wants to be a billionaire, or that he wants to be famous. He wants to save humanity” Scott Halderman, uncle.

"Led Zeppelin" 50th Anniversary

50th Anniversary

50 years ago  history was made, #LedZeppelin was formed. Awesome anniversary! Initially called the New Yardbirds, Led Zeppelin was an English rock band formed in London in 1968 and are widely considered one of the most successful, innovative, and influential rock groups in history. The band's heavy, guitar-driven sound has led them to be cited as one of the progenitors of heavy metal. Their style drew from a wide variety of influences, including blues, psychedelia, and folk music.   Although their musical style was diverse, they came to be well known for their influence on the development of heavy metal.

"A Graphic Biography of Warhol"

By Maria Popova via

Andy Warhol, the iconic Pop artist, presented himself as the vacuous, dumb kid, famously saying, "If you want to know all about Andy Warhol, just look at the surface of my paintings . and there I am. There's nothing behind it." This book penetrates the surface and explores Warhol's art from his beginnings as a commercial artist to his apotheosis as a society portrait painter. Vivid illustrations reveal Andy's worlds. Who shot Marilyn, and other illustrated anecdotes of Warhol’s fallible humanity.  As a lover of graphic biographies, including those of Sigmund Freud, Charles Darwin, Richard Feynman, Hunter S. Thompson, Steve Jobs, and the human brain, I was delighted for the release of This is Warhol (public library | IndieBound) — the first installment in a new series of graphic biographies of thirty famous artists by Scottish art historian Catherine Ingram. What makes the concept especially appealing is that, unlike most art history books, which tend to be either dry textbooks to be studied or lavish monograph-artifacts to be owned and admired, Ingram’s approach embodies Tolstoy’s assertion that art is about emotional infectiousness. She tells a living story, at once illuminating and vibrantly human, rather than weaving a static tapestry of facts. The result is a book that’s inviting without compromising its intelligence.

It's #OvershootDay. Earth Overshoot Day marks the date when we (all of humanity) have used more from nature than our planet can renew in the entire year, We are using 1.7 Earths. We use more ecological resources and services than nature can regenerate through overfishing, overharvesting forests, and emitting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than ecosystems can absorb. In less than eight months, humanity has exhausted Earth's budget for the year, that means humans have officially used more natural resources in 2018 than the Earth can renew this year. The Earth Overshoot Day lands on August 1, and  marks the date when humanity has exhausted nature’s budget for the year, for the rest of the year, we are maintaining our ecological deficit by drawing down local resource stocks and accumulating carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. We are operating in overshoot.

"BLOOD MOON" by @msanhuezacelsi





Artwork by @msanhuezacelsi

Several cultures have myths related to lunar eclipses or allude to the lunar eclipse as being a good or bad omen and "Blood Moon"  It may sound like the apocalypse is nigh,  due to its reddish color, This amazing phenomenon are Total Lunar Eclipse & Blood Moon; everything at once...  The association of the Moon with both oceanic and crustal tides has led to claims that the bloodmoon phenomenon may be associated with increased risk of events like earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and doomsday, but there is no such link.  Certain lunar eclipses have been referred to as "blood moons" in popular articles but this is not a scientifically-recognized term. The  reddish color a totally eclipsed Moon takes on to observers on Earth. As sunlight penetrates the atmosphere of Earth, the gaseous layer filters and refracts the rays in such a way that the green to violet wavelengths on the visible spectrum scatter more strongly than the red, thus giving the Moon a reddish cast.
