Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images for Disney Angela Bassett, who played Ramonda, the Queen Mother of Wakanda, in "Black Panther," says that she learned how to treat food as "fuel" when she became an actor.

Angela Bassett says as we're headed in to "eating season," this November and December, it's important to remember that what we put in our bodies is the fuel that keeps us alive.  For the star, an ambassador for the American Heart Association and American Diabetes Association, heart health and healthy eating are personal.

The Challenge Vault: a locksport training tool and mechanical puzzle that teaches you to be a safecracker
Every year around this time, our friends at Sparrow Lockpicks (previously) come out with a incredibly clever, giftable addition to your locksport arsenal; I always buy a few of these for Christmas gifts (often for younger people on my list) and they're universally well received. This year, Sparrow's seasonal offering is the Challenge Vault, a safecracking practice box that is both a gorgeous artifact in its own right and a superb mechanical puzzle that can be made progressively harder by adding wheels that you access by opening the safe, which arrives set to the easiest setting. The box is also useful as a safe! That is, to the extent that any safe is useful -- and as with all locksport items, this doesn't just confer a better, deeper understanding of the mechanical principles behind locks (nor merely an improvement in fine motor skills and spatial reasoning): it also armors your intuition about whether the security measures you take in your own life are worthwhile, and thus whether the companies that make them are honest about the efficacy of their products. I played with a Challenge Vault prototype at the Atlseccon conference in Halifax last spring, and my thoughts have returned to it often since. It's a fiendishly clever little gadget, well-made and well thought-through, and I know I'll be buying some for the future lockpickers in my life this year. This is more than a puzzle box … this is safe cracking. Get ready to learn a new skill with this challenge. Read the rest

Most Americans fear they've lost control of their personal information, as Facebook and Google continue to dominate the online ad market (GOOG, GOOGL, FB, AAPL)
Tom Williams/CQ-Roll Call, Inc via Getty Images Technology platforms like Google and Facebook are raking in record revenues from helping advertisers use personal information to target ads, as the industry continues to grow. At the same time, an overwhelming majority of Americans are concerned about companies harvesting their personal information and say the risks outweigh the benefits, according to a new survey from Pew Research Center. The survey found that people feel paralyzed by a lack of understanding about how companies use their data and an inability to do anything about it. The complexity of data privacy issues has prevented both companies and the government from finding one-size-fits-all solutions. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Journey down a rabbit hole created by Barry Bonds’ ‘Untitled’ career
We’ve made a lot of videos at SB Nation. Like this one. We made that, probably. Sometimes, after we make a video, we’ll realize that video contains a whole bunch of tangents to other stuff we’ve made. Episode 3 of Untitled, which explains everything that happened to stop Barry Bonds from winning a World Series, is one such video. If, after (or before!) watching that Bonds episode, you want to dive even further down any of various rabbit holes, here’s some more stuff we recommend you watch. Maybe you left this episode fixated on Bonds’s individual greatness. Well, our pal Jon Bois once demonstrated that Bonds was so ridiculously frightening to pitchers that he could have had a very good 2004 season without using a bat: If you came away from Untitled thinking less “Bonds was amazing at sports” and more “Bonds was kind of a dick,” well, we’ve got even more to watch about his distaste for Jeff Kent, which was mutual, and included that 2002 dugout brawl: One important event in this Untitled is the final out of the 1992 NLCS between Bonds’s Pirates and the Atlanta Braves. You’ll already know how it ends, but if you want to know even more about what came before that legendary play, there’s a whole episode of Rewinder digging into the relevant background and context: Also mentioned in Untitled is how often the National League teams advancing at Bonds’ expense went on to win the World Series. That includes the Marlins in 1997 and 2003, with the 2001 Diamondbacks in between. Those Bonds foes had some compelling stories of their own. The Marlins’ bizarre up-and-down-and-up-again-and-then-even-more-down-somehow trajectory is captured in this episode of Collapse: (If you want to ride a tangent off that tangent, the Jose Mesa vs. Omar Vizquel beef budded directly off the outcome of that ‘97 World Series finish. Also, the saddest plate appearance of all time came from a Giants-Marlins game. We warned you about the rabbit holes.) Meanwhile, Arizona’s path to the 2001 World Series vs. the Yankees, which came down to a thrilling walkoff, is covered in this episode of Rewinder: Oh, and one more! Perhaps you noticed Bonds’s manager, Dusty Baker, making some dubious decisions, including the fateful pitching change in Game 6 of the World Series. Well, uh ... it got worse for Dusty, but not with the Giants: Oh, and if you’re a Giants fan and that Untitled episode made you sad about the ‘90s and 2000s ... we’ve got a Rewinder about good ol’ 2014: So yeah, we’ve made a lot of videos.

28 places in America with the harshest winters
Spencer Platt / Getty Winter is the harbinger of snow, bitter winds, freezing temperatures, and plenty of darkness. In the US, the intensity of the season varies across the country. While many Americans complain about winter, some cities and states have more reason to whine than others. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Northern cities like Anchorage, Buffalo, and Minneapolis are known for their punishing winters. But the US has dozens of cities and many more small towns where the season is just as bad — or worse. Some experience plunging temperatures far below freezing, or hundreds of inches of snowfall, or months with barely any sunshine. Others have ice-storms that coat entire cities in inches of slippery ice. Here are 28 places with some of the harshest winters in America.Anchorage, Alaska, gets 74.5 inches of snow per year on average. The record fall was 133 inches in 2012. It remains below freezing for most of winter, and on top of that, it gets about 20 days where temperatures fall below 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Associated Press Sources: Current Results, CNN Fairbanks, Alaska, is known for dog sledding and the Northern Lights, which prompted the town to create a fifth season, known as the Aurora Season.

Fashion experts reveal the 12 items from your 2010 wardrobe that you should get rid of
Getty/Theo Wargo Some popular trends of the 2010s are predicted to fall out of fashion in the 2020s.  Neon colors, skinny jeans, patterned leggings, and chunky sneakers are on their way out.  Professionals told Insider that cold-shoulder tops and garments with lace accents won't be as popular next year. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Although some fashions are timeless, a few major trends from the 2010s are predicted to fade in the next decade in order to make way for fresh new looks.  To figure out what's here to stay and what's on its way out, Insider spoke to a range of style experts. Here are some fashions from the past decade that experts predict will be out of favor in the 2020s. Skinny jeans will be ousted in favor of looser styles. Getty/Theo Wargo Skinny jeans may have been a staple in your closet for the past decade, but professional fashion-trend analyst and forecaster Marie-Michèle Larivée told Insider that they are on their way out.  "The skinny shape took over the jeans market in early 2010; It was the key shape to wear. However, fashion is a cycle and the pendulum is slowly swinging to the other extreme. Skinny jeans will be replaced by a looser fit of jeans and a flared leg," said Larivée.  Boot-cut and relaxed, boyfriend-style jeans are poised to become the standard jean silhouette of the 2020s, she explained. Culottes, palazzo pants, and even bell-bottoms will also likely be hot items in the coming decade. Ultra-high heels will be swapped out for lower, trendier footwear. Kim Kyung Hoon/Reuters Although 4-, 5-, and 6-inch heels were considered de rigueur for evening wear in the 2010s, television fashion stylist Cindy Conroy told Insider that lower heels and dressy flats will rule the 2020s.  "I'm happy to say stilt-like heels are taking a major fashion nap. Likely because no one can comfortably walk in them for extended periods of time," said Conroy. Ankle-breaking stilettos may be out, but fancy footwear is still in vogue. Conroy told Insider that ultra-high heels will be replaced with comfort-driven shoes like slides, flats, sandals, and exaggerated chunky heels.  Ripped jeans are on their way out. atdigit/Shutterstock Fashion publicist Isoke Salaam told Insider that the days of sorting through racks of ripped jeans may soon be over.  "Ripped jeans popped back up about seven years ago and they have been hanging on. However, they're on their way out," said Salaam. "Though they work for concerts and maybe festivals, ripped jeans don't work for most restaurants or first impressions. Instead, polished and classic styles are here to stay." To keep up with changing trends, Salaam suggests wearing a slim pair of black, cropped jeans instead of shredded denim.

A dog drove a car in circles around a Florida neighborhood for a hour, and it turns out he wasn't half bad
WPBF A dog drove around a cul-de-sac in Port Saint Lucie, Florida, for an hour on Thursday before police stopped him.  The dog was surprisingly good at driving. In the hour he was behind the wheel, driving in reverse, he only hit a mailbox and a couple garbage bins.  Police think that the dog's owner left the dog in a running car and stepped out. That's when the dog inexplicably took the wheel. Ruff trip. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. At around 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, neighbors in Port Saint Lucie, Florida, spotted a silver sedan driving in circles around a cul-de-sac. The car appeared to be driverless, but there was someone behind the wheel: A dog. Specifically, a dog named Max. "I saw this car going around in a circle and it was doing it for about an hour.

‘The time is now to have a federal privacy bill,’ says Tim Cook
Photo credit should read SAUL LOEB/AFP via Getty Images Congress has been struggling for years to pass a federal data privacy law, but on Friday, lawmakers gained an unexpected ally in Apple CEO Tim Cook. In an interview with ABC News, the executive said big tech companies haven’t corrected their mistakes, and it’s time for the government to step in — ideally with a federal privacy bill. “I think we can all admit that when you’ve tried to do something and companies haven’t self policed, that it’s time to have rigorous regulation,” he explained, “and I think we’ve passed that time.” But while many are focused on splitting up companies like Facebook into separate, smaller entities, Cook also said regulators are too focused on antitrust action and not focused enough on data privacy.
