Microplastics have also been...

Fun idea but many people in Nepal don't think the statue looks anything like their beloved beast. From the BBC: "In folk tales, the yeti has been described as a big monkey-like creature," Ram Kumar Pandey (author of several books about the yeti) tells...

Sherpa climbs Everest twice in week

This piece of news might be a bit discouraging for Everest-trekking hopefuls whose longtime bucket-list item has been to scale Everest just once in their life.

Kami Rita, a Nepalese mountain climber and sherpa, has climbed the tallest mountain in the world a record 24 times — and even more impressively, twice just this past week. Just three days after his 23rd summit, he began cl...

Menlo Ventures was founded in 1976 but it took 35 years for the venture capital firm to hit the jackpot. Since the dot-com boom, Menlo Ventures has teetered between good and great. A prolific Silicon Valley investor, it’s never quite reached the heights of Accel or Andreessen Horowitz (a16z), or established the level of name recognition as Benchmark or Sequoia, firms that struck gold with bets on Facebook, Instagram and Snap.
