Welcome to the anti-Coachella: Luck Reunion is all about the music and almost impossible to get into
This one-day concert every March in Texas outside Willie Nelson’s ranch features incredible musicians and a ticketing process that’s almost as mathematically difficult as the lottery. Believe it or not, the first Coachella was actually about the music. Twenty years later, it’s an excuse for teenagers to get drunk and wear flower crowns. Ariana Grande headlined the first weekend of the two-weekend 2019 festival, which ends April 21—and judging by this review, those of us who stayed home can be glad we saved $500 and the cost of a flight to LAX.  Read Full Story

Columbine 20 years later: This map shows every school shooting since
A disturbing visual record of a uniquely American phenomenon. Twenty years ago on this day, two students opened fire at Columbine High School, killing 13 people and injuring 24 more. While the scourge of gun violence in U.S. schools didn’t begin with Columbine, the massacre near Littleton, Colorado, reshaped debates on gun laws, school bullying, mental health, and the media’s role in glorifying mass shooters.Read Full Story

Why haven’t we evolved a solution to aging?
Reconciling the apparent paradox between the optimizing drive of evolution, and the inevitable deterioration of the body. Life pits the order and intricacy of biology against the ceaseless chaos of physics. The second law of thermodynamics, or the thermodynamic arrow of time, states that any natural system will always tend towards increasing disorder. Biological aging is no different, making death inevitable. However, one of the least-addressed questions of aging is the apparent paradox between the optimizing drive of evolution, and the inevitable deterioration of the body. Considering the 3.5 billion years in which we have evolved from single-cell organisms, why hasn’t life countered the inefficiency of aging? Or more accurately, how has aging persisted within the Darwinian framework of evolution?Read Full Story

The Bauhaus of Blunts? Today’s most ambitious cannabis companies are high on design
To stand out in the crowd, cannabis companies are getting creative with their lifestyle branding. Marijuana has come a long way from the days of plastic baggies and glass jars filled with OG Kush and Sticky Icky Icky. Today’s cannabis (née weed) is sold in posh retail outlets, which stock dozens of different products, from medicinal-style vaporizers to THC-infused candies, aimed at veteran users and neophytes alike. In the past year, $2.2 billion of venture capital has flowed into 324 cannabis deals globally, according to research firm CB Insights. In the United States, many of the deals are rooted in California, the largest legal market, where recreational use has been legal since 2018 and consumer-facing companies are scrambling to turn what is essentially a commodity product into something more distinctive.Read Full Story

How these savvy 'Jeopardy!' champions use statistics and game theory to walk away with millions
Associated Press James Holzhauer, the current reigning "Jeopardy!" champion, is currently on an 11-day winning streak. The Las Vegas-resident and professional sports gambler has taken home more than $770,000 so far.  But Holzhauer isn't just getting lucky. His impressive daily totals (four of them tallying upwards of $100,000) are a result of how he plays the game — knowing when to hit the buzzer, how much to bet on daily doubles, and which clues to knock off the board first. Other famous "Jeopardy!" champions used similar strategies to increase their earnings and guarantee a win. In 2014, contestant Arthur Chu used principals of game theory in determining how much to bet during Final Jeopardy to maximize his chances of moving onto the next day of game play. Just making it onto the show "Jeopardy!" is challenging enough. But winning the day once you're in the studio is even more difficult. Unless you know how to play the odds.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Sumo wrestlers eat up to 7,000 calories a day, yet don't typically suffer from symptoms of obesitySee Also:11 common traits of highly intelligent peopleShare your opinion — become a BI Insider!A former student returned to his college and fried $51,000 worth of computers using a simple device you can easily buy onlineSEE ALSO: We spent a day behind the scenes of 'Jeopardy!' with Alex Trebek in 2017 — here's what he's really like

BuzzFeed is struggling to defend its major Trump scoop after Mueller's report discredited it
Brendan McDermid/Reuters BuzzFeed published a bombshell story in January saying that President Donald Trump ordered his former fixer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about plans for a Trump-branded skyscraper in Moscow. No other news outlet matched the story, and the redacted version of the special counsel Robert Mueller's report appears to discredit it. BuzzFeed's editor in chief issued a statement detailing the outlet's reporting, but the company has not retracted the story. Visit INSIDER.com for more stories. When BuzzFeed reported on January 17 that President Donald Trump ordered his former fixer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about plans for a Trump-branded skyscraper in Moscow, the upstart outlet framed the story as a revelation of historical importance — "the first known example of Trump explicitly telling a subordinate to lie directly about his own dealings with Russia" — and a vindication for BuzzFeed's ambitious newsroom. Unlike other bombshells to emerge from the Russia investigation, this was the first to unambiguously accuse the sitting president of committing such a serious crime — an impeachable offense, many said. And the story's headline — "President Trump Directed His Attorney Michael Cohen To Lie To Congress About The Moscow Tower Project" — lacked any caveats or hedges. Moreover, the reporters Anthony Cormier and Jason Leopold said Mueller's team had documentation showing Trump instructed Cohen to lie.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Here's how North Korea's Kim Jong Un became one of the world's scariest dictatorsSee Also:Share your opinion — become a BI Insider!11 common traits of highly intelligent peopleA former student returned to his college and fried $51,000 worth of computers using a simple device you can easily buy online

Tesla is shuffling its board of directors amid ongoing negotiations with the Securities and Exchange Commission (TSLA)
60 Minutes Tesla on Friday announced four members of its board of directors will leave their posts once their terms have ended. Brad Buss and Linda Johnson Rice will not pursue reelection to the board at Tesla's stockholders' meeting in June. And in 2020, Steve Jurvetson's tenure will officially end. Jurvetson has been on leave following accusations of sexual misconduct at his venture-capital firm Draper, Fisher, Jurvetson in 2017. A fourth independent director, Antonio Gracias, would also bow out in 2020 if Tesla stockholders approve a proposal to reduce director terms from three years to two. If that proposal fails, Gracias would instead exit in 2021, the electric-car maker said. The shuffle comes as CEO Elon Musk and the Securities and Exchange Commission negotiate terms governing Musk's activity on Twitter, a matter on which the chief executive and federal regulators have locked horns in recent months.

Wall Street firms are being taken over by 22-year-olds — here are the big banks that rely on junior talent the most
Peter MacDiarmid/Getty Images Wall Street investment banks are spending more on tech and eliminating rote tasks that used to go to junior staff. But the banks aren't cutting back on their crops of recent college grads — if anything, they're relying more on younger workers. Analysis of FINRA records by efinancialcareers shows that nearly one-fifth of Finra-licensed employees at the big New York banks are brand new to the business.   Some banks, like Barclays and Goldman Sachs, rely more heavily on first years than others.  Visit BusinessInsider.com for more stories. As Wall Street banks spend billions to upgrade technology and automate tasks, the mundane and tedious work that used to define the early years of a career at an investment bank is increasingly disappearing, with bots and algorithms springing into action to take over.  JPMorgan Chase, for instance, is digitizing dealmaking, using machine learning for elements of underwriting stocks and bonds and saving hundreds of thousands of hours of work in the process. Goldman Sachs is automating initial public offerings, stripping out half the roughly 130 steps in the process and delegating them to computers. See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Physicists have discovered that rotating black holes might serve as portals for hyperspace travelSee Also:Goldman Sachs's Rich Friedman gives up day-to-day oversight of private-investing business as rising executives step inMorgan Stanley beats profit estimates as wealth management and bond-trading revenue outperformGoldman Sachs is moving away from a tool championed by its former CFO as it pushes its traders to see clients where they once saw quick wins

Getty Apple will announce a Mac software update that brings Siri Shortcuts and Screen Time to its desktop software, says a new report.

Gig-economy workers like Uber and Lyft drivers may be skewing low unemployment numbers
Justin Sullivan/Getty Unemployment numbers may not fully account for gig economy workers, who may self-report as being "employed" despite not being on payroll, according to a new report from the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. Gig workers do not have the bargaining power of payroll employees, so they may also account for slowing wage growth. Uber and Lyft drivers make up much of the country's gig workforce, and they've long complained of the low pay and lack of benefits independent contractors deal with. Visit BusinessInsider.com for more stories. While unemployment may be at record lows, the growing number of gig workers who aren't on payroll may be skewing the data, according to a new report.  The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas — one of 12 regional reserve banks that make up the centralized Fed — found that although unemployment is low, wage growth has not increased. One reason could be the rise of gig workers: The report found that the number of workers who pay self-employment taxes has risen steadily over the last 35 years.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: 12 everyday phrases that you're probably saying incorrectlySee Also:This video shows the moment Sarah Sanders lied to a room full of reporters about FBI agents telling her they were happy Trump fired ComeyBlue-collar jobs like plumbing pay $90,000 without a college degree, and it's driving more workers to trade schoolWhy legendary hedge-fund founder Ray Dalio is choosing to explore the sea instead of space like other billionairesSEE ALSO: The world's largest hedge fund breaks down how the US workforce got screwed over the past 20 years

The 10 characters fans think are most likely to die in 'Avengers: Endgame'
Marvel/Disney "Avengers: Endgame" is in theaters Friday, April 26, and we doubt all of our favorite heroes are going to make it out alive. INSIDER surveyed 760 Marvel fans to find out who they believe is most likely going to die in the fourth "Avengers" outing. People are most nervous about Captain America and Iron Man across the board. No one is expecting Captain Marvel to go anywhere. We're not expecting everyone to make it out of "Avengers: Endgame" alive when it comes to theaters Friday, April 26. INSIDER polled 760 Marvel fans to see who they think is the most likely to die by the movie's end. There are a lot of characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In creating our survey, we confined our choices to 32 survivors and fallen characters featured prominently on "Avengers: Endgame" posters. As a result, Thanos was not included here as a voting option. (Personally, I don't think he's going to die. I could be totally wrong though!) We wanted to focus here on the heroes.  INSIDER asked fans to choose up to five surviving "Infinity War" characters they believe are most likely to die by the movie's end. We then asked them to select the one individual character they don't think will make it out alive. We then asked these two questions again with all 32 characters seen on the "Avengers" posters. INSIDER found that a lot of respondents decided to skip questions that involved characters who seemingly died in "Infinity War." Because of that, this list is focused around the surviving characters fans think are most likely to be killed by the end of "Endgame." What do fans think? They don't feel good about anyone who is close to Tony Stark. Most people think Captain Marvel, the most recent hero introduced into the MCU, is definitely safe. Keep reading to see who fans think won't make it out of "Endgame" alive ranked from least likely to most likely to be killed. At the end of our ranking, you can see the results of several questions laid out in graphs. Who took this survey? Respondents to our "Avengers: Endgame" survey ranged in age from under 17 to 75 and older. The largest percentage of survey takers (41.2%) were between the ages of 18 to 24. 66.5% of respondents said they always keep up with the MCU films, and 343 of our survey takers said they live outside of the US and Canada. Our survey skewed male with 473 men and 248 women responding. There were 17 persons who preferred not to respond regarding their gender. Two preferred to self-describe. 10. Bruce Banner/Hulk —13.9% Marvel Banner was among some of the top characters when we asked fans to select up to five characters they thought might die in "Endgame." However, only two respondents believed he will be the one character most likely to die by the movie's end. When INSIDER asked fans who may die out of 32 characters living or lost after the events of "Infinity War," only one respondent out of 367 who decided to answer the question thought Hulk would bite the dust.  Our take: The Hulk probably isn't going anywhere. Ruffalo said in 2012 he signed on for a six-film deal. "Endgame" will mark his official fifth film. He had a cameo in "Iron Man 3." If the Hulk and Bruce Banner have patched things up in "Endgame" to work together, we'd love to see more of this new and improved Banner.   9. Thor — 14.2% Disney/Marvel The God of Thunder is definitely one of the most beloved characters in the MCU, but he's not one fans seem overly concerned about. Across the board, Thor was consistently near the very bottom when we asked fans to predict who they expected to die in "Endgame." It didn't matter whether or not the characters were confirmed alive after the snap or were among those who vanished. When fans were asked to choose up to five characters they thought were most likely to die in "Endgame," Thor was positioned nine out of 16 possible responses. Only eight respondents said they thought Thor was the one character most likely to die in "Endgame." When we asked fans what characters they would be the most upset over losing, Thor was always one of the top four heroes. Our take: We hope Thor doesn't perish in "Endgame." His popularity skyrocketed after the evolution of his character in the hilarious "Thor: Ragnarok." Plus, according to Tessa Thompson, who plays Valkyrie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there's already talk of a fourth "Thor" movie. You can't have that without Hemsworth, right? "I heard that a pitch has happened for [another "Thor" film]," Thompson told the Los Angeles Times. "I don't know how real that intel is, but I hear that the pitch has happened. I think the idea is Taika [Waititi, who directed 'Ragnarok'] would come back." 8. Pepper Potts — 15.8% Disney/Marvel Studios Fans don't think things are looking too great for Potts. When we asked about the characters in all 32 of the "Endgame" posters released, fans were less concerned about Potts and more worried for other superheroes.  58 respondents said they would be most upset by her death when they were allowed to select up to five characters who could die in "Endgame." Our take: Paltrow's days may be numbered in the MCU, but we're not certain we'll see her killed off. The actress confirmed in February to Variety she'll be retiring from the universe after "Endgame." A trailer for "Spider-Man: Far From Home" teased Potts will still be alive in the universe, and we know the movie takes place minutes after "Endgame." Paltrow said if she's ever needed for a flashback scene or for a day, she'll always be more than happy to step in for a day.

Samsung's Galaxy Fold is an ambitious but flawed first attempt at what could be the future of smartphones
Hollis Johnson/Business Insider Samsung's Galaxy Fold proves that foldable phones are more than just a gimmick; it offers a large, beautiful screen that fits in your pocket with battery life that lasts for days. But it's far from being perfect, making it hard to justify the nearly $2,000 price tag. Screen malfunctions aside, the crease is still very noticeable and there are some aspects of its design that require you to trade-off some convenience for that extra screen real estate. Still, it's an ambitious first look at where the smartphone industry may be headed.  Visit BusinessInsider.com for more stories. Samsung has been flaunting its flexible display technology for years, but the company finally showcased the culmination of those efforts with the Galaxy Fold, its $1,980 foldable smartphone that goes on sale April 26.  The Fold features a 4.6-inch cover display on the front, which unfolds like a book to reveal a larger, tablet-sized 7.3-inch screen. Cameras are located on the front, back, and inside of the device so that you can take photos whether the phone is open or shut. The device supports facial recognition, so you can unlock the device just by looking at it, but there's also a fingerprint sensor located along the side of the device near the volume keys and the button that launches Bixby, Samsung's virtual assistant. It comes with a case and Samsung's new $129 Galaxy Buds in the box.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Watch Google unveil Stadia, its new video-game platform that streams across devices without a consoleSee Also:The $2,000 Galaxy Fold from Samsung is a massive risk for anyone who buys itReview units of Samsung's folding phone are breaking, and it's a potential fiasco that threatens the company's fragile reputationReview units of Samsung's $2,000 Galaxy Fold are already breaking — here's what it's been like to use so farSEE ALSO: I just used Samsung's Galaxy Fold for the first time — here are 5 things that stood out to me the most

Blue Sleep; Alyssa Powell/Business Insider Blu Sleep Essential Oil Pillows (currently $89 from Amazon) are infused with lavender, eucalyptus, citrus, chamomile, and green tea essential oils to help you relax as you sleep.  But after sleeping on it for just one night, I realized that the pillow's memory foam technology is actually what made it a stand-out for me. I've been using my Blu Sleep Green Tea pillow for more than four months and I've never slept better. When I moved to New York City in November, I lived in a completely empty apartment for more than two weeks while waiting for my things to be driven over from Michigan. Throughout this extended stretch of bleak domesticity, I slept on a leaky air mattress.

The scientific reason hangovers are the absolute worst
Common symptoms of a hangover like headaches, nausea, and anxiety are caused by chemical changes in your body and brain that accompany drinking. Alcohol suppresses a hormone called vasopressin, which normally prevents you from urinating too much. Without it, you pee more and become dehydrated (cue morning headache). Other chemicals called proinflammatory cytokines are to blame for your flu-like symptoms, while changes in brain chemistry — not your choices last night — are responsible for so-called "hangxiety." Hangovers and the horrible headaches that come with them are caused by chemical changes in your body that take effect as soon you down your first drink. Following is a transcript of the video. Ahhh. Your head hurts. You're nauseated. You're achy. And you're certainly: Never. Drinking. Again.
