Does Listening To A Certain Type Of Music While You Work Make You More Productive? (Video)

You know that mode that the right kind of music puts you in? Not that ‘mode’ with your mate (that’s more of a ‘mood’ anyway). Talking about ‘do work’ mode! Well, if you do, Dr. Levitin says you are fooling yourself. Better to get an earful of the ‘sounds of silence’ if you actually want to get some work done. Watch the quick clip above.

Daniel J. Levitin, a cognitive psychologist at McGill University and author of “A Field Guide to Lies: Critical Thinking in the Information Age,” explains the relation between listening to music and work-efficiency.

Nigerian Tribal King Takes Shell Oil To Court (Video)

Lawsuit for millions and millions of dollars. Think that even makes an oil conglomerate blink? Hardly! Real question is… Where is the humanity?! If you got it for the clean-up, when the courts force you, why not spend the money PROTECTING the people?

(Wait. Don’t answer. I think I already know. Sickening…)

A Nigerian tribal king has taken oil giant Shell to court in London. Here’s why.
– Al Jazeera English

Long Live The Chief! Watch him work. Shame on you Shell! Immeasurable amounts of oil spilled. Land made wasteland. Militarization and the killing of Ken Saro-Wiwa. On you (and the Nigerian government)!

Host Trevor Noah Has An Intense Discussion With Outspoken Internet Conservative Tomi Lahren On ‘The Daily Show’ (Video)

Taking a different angle for the noon hour today. Tomi Lahren is cute. No doubt. But her views, well, we may not see eye-to-eye a lot. And though I play the horndog on here, I care about what people say…even the beautiful people I ogle. To be clear, all views matter. We have to listen and try to understand. We cannot even have a good argument if we are not understanding who and what we are fighting. And eventually, we are going to have to find a way to get along.

Trevor Noah gets at her in the clip above, but not in an angry way. Tomi talks about her views, not too angry either. In the end, the convo comes out about the same as when Jon Stewart was running ‘The Daily Show’ and would have uber-Conservative frienemy Bill O’Reilly on there. Give it to Trevor: He won with that ‘Why so angry, Tomi?’ approach. Take a look/listen.

(Tomi Lahren. Her name makes me think of Jim Lehrer from PBS NewsHour back in the day. Maybe it’s because I want to her to move at least a bit closer to center.)

Paris, France, Will Be The First To Have Flying Taxis In Service (Video)

Paris will be the first city with flying taxis.

Seems like they are just hydrofoiling in this clip though. Still, cool tech.

Fidel Castro Ruz: The Untold Story (Video)

Like most world leaders, the “Untold Story” of Fidel Castro (RIP) is compelling. It is an hour-and-change long, but the presentation and content shared might provide different insights on the man who was once the West’s preeminent dictator. Watch with your eyes and mind fully open.

New GoPro Throwable Camera Lets You Capture High-Quality Aerial Footage (Video)

Wow. When the director calls out “throw” to camera 3… well, now the cameraperson will need some further clarification… Because GoPro, that’s why! Watch the clip above: You can aim, throw and shoot this GoPro (as many times as needed) to get the perfect aerial shot. Whyyyyy are we not filming touchdown receptions with a ‘football cam’ yet? Get on that GoPro. ASAP. And get Cam Newton to speak on it (Cam’s Aerial Cam, Air Cam Cam, ThrowPro…something more catchy).

Hey! What about a dodgeball cam?? Imagine commentating someone getting BLASTED in the face, huevos, guts, glutes or somewhere sensitive (yet hilarious) from the ‘incoming!’ point of view. Could be some fun tech! And you can invest in it via the link below.

Eye Candy: Arii Bang (Video)

Hot, hot, HOT! So much I had to post at midnight, not noon. Nooners are one thing, but this is another. Arii Bang is hot enough. THEN she delivers that SUPER THICKNESS sooooo sexily…it’s just good sense to not risk daytime employment teasing you with this. Plus, her Instagram is private. Probably some real goodies she’s being exclusive about on there, right?

(And if you work nights, know this is Not Safe For Work!)

Your Plane Might Get Struck By Lightning! It Happens More Often Than You Think (Video)

Welcome back to the work-week, Americans. Did you enjoy the holiday? Did you travel…by airplane? If you did, what are the chances it got struck by lightning? Probably a lot higher than you think! Peep the science.

Although the idea of your next flight being struck by lightning may be terrifying, it’s actually pretty common. Every airplane is stuck by lightning about once a year. The lights may flicker, but thanks to some smart engineering, the danger is low.

StarTalk: Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson Sits Down With GZA (Of Wu-Tang Clan)

I’m continually impressed that much of the GZA content we share on here places just as much a premium on high intellect and science as it does on skillz. Watch world-renown new school science guy Neil deGrasse Tyson talk with GZA; really getting into real-life love of science, being inspired by it, and how it can (and should) inspire others.
