$2.50 an hour and exposure to riders who may have the virus: Uber drivers say their income has collapsed and help has been sparse. Here's how bad it is.

Rideshare drivers for Uber and Lyft say their income has collapsed amid coronavirus, and support from the rideshare companies has been sparse. Business Insider surveyed over 1,000 rideshare drivers and gig workers. Drivers who are still working said their weekly earnings have dropped by anywhere from 50% to 80% in the past month.  Many have stopped driving altogether due to safety concerns. Others are pivoting to delivery work, which they say has remained more profitable amid the quarantine. U...

"Japanese Artist Has Drawn Every Meal He’s Eaten for 32 Years: Behold the Delicious Illustrations of Itsuo Kobayashi"

Image and text from Open Culture, 3/24/2020. Since the 1980s, Itsuo Kobayashi has drawn a picture of every single meal he eats. However notable we find this practice now, it would surely have struck us as downright eccentric back then. Kobayashi began drawing his food before the arrival of inexpensive digital cameras and cellphones, and well before the smartphone combined the two into the single package we now keep close at hand. We all know people who take camera-phone pictures of their meals...

"There used to be a show on Fox called Man vs. Beast and you should know about it because it was probably the best show of all-time."

"In one of the competitions, a sprinter lost a 100-meter dash against a zebra (yet beat a giraffe!). In another, professional eater Takeru Kobayashi lost a hot dog eating contest against a Kodiak bear that did not even know he was taking part in an eating competition. And then there is my personal favorite: the world-class gymnast who defeated Bam Bam the orangutan in a 'dead hang,' even after Bam Bam clearly tried to play mind games with the gymnast by dropping his pants and urinating during th...

Japanese Cook Draws Every Meal He Eats, Now Has 32 Years' Worth

One of the more surprising things that happened in my high school: There was a kid I'll call Sal who was a jock through-and-through, athletic, competitive, football star, his dad was one of the coaches. Junior year Sal badly injured his knee and was out for the season.Sal would sit on the sidelines, still wearing the team jacket, to watch all the practices. One day I noticed he had a sketchbook with him. He'd taken up drawing to idle away the time. Then he realized he loved it.By senior year Sal...

L-Theanine: Benefits, Dosage, and Side Effects

Everyone is curious about what the future has in store for them. The difference is what we choose to do with that curiosity. People attempt to find those answers from many sources, like spiritual leaders and palm reading. Sometimes, they even go looking at the bottom of a cup of tea—tasseography is the ancient practice of reading and interpreting the formations of tea leaves at the bottom of the cup. But you may not need to get to the bottom of your cup to get to the bottom of what’s ...

The never-ending Mt. Gox saga: Cryptocurrency recovery deadline pushed back (again!)

In a statement released earlier this week, Nobuaki Kobayashi said a Tokyo District Court had issued an order to extend the deadline until March 31, 2020.

Identifying 'friends' in an objective manner

Dr. Teruyoshi Kobayashi of Kobe University and his team developed a new method for identifying individuals that have essential connections between them -- what they call 'significant ties'. Dr. Kobayashi says: ''The point is that we need to distinguish between the contact events that could happen by chance and the events that would not happen without a significant relationship between two individuals.'' Their findings were published in Nature Communications on January 15.
