How Googlers are making unseen disability visible at work

Five years ago, I discovered that I had left temporal epilepsy, a condition that causes unprovoked seizures. To manage it, I was prescribed medication.

What made the journey harder was knowing that my struggle with this condition had no cause identified, and was an invisible battle with myself.The conversation about invisible disability is often overlooked, especially a...

Google’s biggest moonshot is its search for a carbon-free future

Google envisions its latest campus as the embodiment of a grander ambition to run its operations entirely free of carbon.

That year, Google also claimed it had offset all its carbon emissions, though it shared little data. Google lists greener options in Maps and carbon emissions for flights in ...

The New York Times reports: Ruth Hamilton was fast asleep in her home in British Columbia when she awoke to the sound of her dog barking, followed by "an explosion."

New Study Finds Ridesharing Actually Increases Pollution, Congestion

Greg Bensinger of the New York Times editorial board argues ridesharing companies haven't delivered on their promises of well-paying driver jobs with less traffic congestion (let alone their predictions of an end to car ownership — or even of a sustainable, profitable, business model). And he adds that now a new study "is punching a hole in another of Uber and Lyft's promised benefits: curtailing pollution." The companies have long insisted their services are a boon to the environment in part ...

Star Wars: How The Knights of Ren Are Different From The Sith

The Sith are the primary antagonists of the Star Wars saga, but they’re largely absent from the sequel trilogy, having been seemingly replaced by a different dark side religion: The Knights of Ren.
