Google is putting an algorithmic audio news feed on its Assistant
Google is rolling out a new service for Google Assistant that it’s calling “Your News Update.” It takes the idea of an algorithmically determined news feed — the kind you get from Facebook or on Google’s news feed — and turns it into an audio stream. To play it, you simply ask a Google smart speaker or Assistant on your phone to “listen to the news.” Google uses the information it has learned about you over the years alongside your location to custom-build a series of short news updates from partners from which it has licensed audio. It hopes to foster an ecosystem it’s calling “the audio web,” according to Liz Gannes, Google’s product manager of audio news. These aren’t podcasts so much as news bites, similar to the hourly news updates... Continue reading…

"Softbody Tetris": what if tetronimoes were made of jello?
C4D4U's SOFTBODY TETRIS V16 is (as the name implies), the latest in a series of "softbody" simulations of Tetris, in which the tetronimoes are rubbery, jelly-like solids that glisten as they wobble into place. It's an incredibly soothing thing to watch (C4D4U calls them "ASMR for my eyes") and part of a wider genre of softbody sims. JWZ argues that this "becomes intolerable" upon the "realization that completed rows don't liquify" but if that's your thing, you need SOFTBODY TETRIS V9. Read the rest

A notoriously bearish hedge fund manager is more convinced than ever a crash is coming — and has pushed his short bets to a record
Reuters / Kai Pfaffenbach Bearish fund manager Russell Clark increased Horseman Global Fund's net short position to 111% of gross assets, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday, citing an investor letter. Clark is betting against a historically long bull market at a time when central-bank rate cuts and tempered trade-war tensions have pushed stocks to record highs. Horseman is eyeing its worst yearly loss yet, with its short-heavy strategy yielding a 27% loss on a year-to-date basis, according to Bloomberg. The manager told investors in October he "can see all the problems with the markets," and the only issue "is timing." Visit the Business Insider homepage for more stories. Hedge fund manager Russell Clark stands to win big from a market crash. But record-setting stocks haven't been kind to his bearish investments.

Angry vegans are suing Burger King for 'contaminating' Impossible Whoppers by cooking them on the same grill as meat products
AP Photo/Ben Margot A group of vegans are suing Burger King for engaging in what they claim are deceptive practices surrounding its plant-based Impossible Whopper, NBC reported.  The vegan plaintiffs say the Impossible burger is not actually meat-free because the patties are prepared on the same broiler as beef patties.  The lawsuit demands Burger King to take all of the profits made off of the sale and marketing of the Impossible Whopper and redirect it to the plaintiffs.  While the standard Impossible Whopper is cooked on the same broiler as beef patties, the Burger King website says that customers seeking a meat-free option can ask to have the patties prepared separately.  Burger King began selling the plant-based burger in August and has received some backlash in the past after customers in New York were allegedly sold beef patties they believed were made with Impossible Meat.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Fast-food giant Burger King is facing a potential multi-million dollar lawsuit from a group of vegans who say the franchise's plant-based Whopper option was contaminated with real animal meat.  The suit, brought forth by Philip Williams in Miami court on behalf of several vegans, claims the chain's Impossible Whopper, made with a plant-based fake meat, is contaminated by animal by-products when it's cooked on the chain's broiler, and therefore isn't totally meat-free.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: A podiatrist explains heel spurs, the medical condition Trump said earned him a medical deferment from VietnamSee Also:Trump jokingly told Jewish donors that he could one day be Israel’s prime ministerWaffle House customers jumped into action to help an overwhelmed cook after finding out he was working aloneA stream along the South Korean border turned red after the government slaughtered thousands of pigs infected with swine fever

Revisiting Operation Mindfuck
Over at Medium, BB pal Douglas Rushkoff explores how today's propaganda -- born in the 17th century to propagate the Catholic faith and reborn in the 20th century as "public relations" -- is no longer about convincing people to believe in whatever story the source happens to be selling. Today, Doug writes, "the primary goal of government propaganda is to undermine our faith in everything. Not just our belief in particular stories in the news, but our trust in the people who are telling the stories, the platforms, and fact-based reality itself." Interestingly, he traces this kind of systematic reality disruption to the counterculture. From Medium: Before Watergate anyway, it felt as if the press and the government were on the same side, telling the same story to us all. There was no way for the underfunded counterculture to compete with mainstream reality programming—except by undermining its premises. The flower children couldn’t overwhelm Richard Nixon’s National Guard troops, but they could put daisies in the barrels of their rifles. Taken to the extreme, this sort of activist satire became Operation Mindfuck, first announced in 1975 by Robert Anton Wilson and Robert Shea in their Illuminatus Trilogy!. The idea was to undermine people’s faith in government, authority, and the sanctity of consensus reality itself by pranking everything, all the time. The idea of Operation Mindfuck was to break the trance that kept America at war, blindly consuming, and oblivious to its impact on the rest of the world. Destabilize the dominant cultural narrative through pranks and confusion. Read the rest

A time-management expert says there's one important downside to the 4-day workweek, even if it does make you more productive
Getty Images Companies like Microsoft and Shake Shack have experimented with the four-day workweek to improve work-life balance for their employees. But for all the advantages a shorter workweek may offer, there's also a downside to consider. Cutting the workweek short could mean less time for longer-term career development, says time-management expert Laura Vanderkam. A more viable answer to providing a better work-life balance could be offering more flexible working hours throughout the week rather than cutting the business week one day short. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.  Companies like Microsoft and Shake Shack have recently experimented with the four-day workweek as part of an effort to help their employees achieve a better work-life balance. And while cutting the business week by one day can motivate employees to get more work done in a shorter timeframe, there's a downside that can come from only working four days per week. A shorter workweek could mean less time for opportunities that may advance an employee's career in the long-run, like networking with important industry peers.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: 8 weird robots NASA wants to send to spaceSee Also:Ousted WeWork CEO Adam Neumann can still reportedly name directors to WeWork's board, even though he left the companyThe life and career of John Legere, the unconventional T-Mobile CEO who just announced he's stepping down next yearThe FTC confirmed Facebook isn't the only tech company it's investigatingSEE ALSO: I took a class at Google on how to get the best search results, and I learned 5 tricks everyone should know
