The company recently crowdfunded over $230,000 to manufacture the Flask Coffee Brewer, a relatively simple manual coffee maker, but they won’t end up shipping a single product. No refunds or late arrivals.

But it’s far worse for the company’s commercial customers. Alpha Dominche’s flagship product that launched in 2014, the Steampunk, is—or, was—an eye-catching $15,000 coffee and tea brewer designed for high-end cafes. And soon they’ll all stop working.

Flask Brewer backers are out eighty dollars, Steampunk-wielding cafes around the world are about to have a useless hunk of metal when the official servers go down, and Alpha Dominche’s brand new cafe in Brooklyn has turned the lights off.

Apparently the machines can only work if pinging the official servers through a proprietary app.

:lol

One of the most popular terms on Chinese social media is diaosi, which literally means penis hair but has become shorthand for anybody who feels they’ve failed at work, romance or life in general.

According to one survey, one third of Millennials believe President George W. Bush killed more people than Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin. Over 40 percent of Millennials have never heard of Mao Zedong; another 40 percent and 30 percent, respectively, are unfamiliar with Vladimir Lenin and Che Guevara. Two-thirds of Millennials cannot identify Auschwitz, and 22 percent have never heard of the Holocaust, twice the percentage of American adults on average.

Millennials might not know much, but according to a 2016 Harvard survey, they know they don’t support capitalism, with 51 percent of young adults rejecting economic freedom.

I'm sure Reason, tagline,   "Free Minds, Free Markets" and the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation are super reputable sources for studies about socialism.

They probably were using an old list for Bush that still included JFK Jr.

There's no reason for government employees to go hungry when there are plenty of payday loans to go around. Also prison food ain't too bad.

It did though, cross a significant line for us. We are a private business, we are not owned by the Government, FCA or ASA, and we will never be told what we are/are not allowed to say. If we want to campaign to put Batman on the moon, then that is our business, not the Governments. Naturally, we told them no, we wouldn't retract it. Who knows where this will now end up.

This is a massive concern for us given the nature of the next project we were going to launch in the UK. Avoid.com is going to be the world's first negative-only travel review website. It launches in March 2019 and was going to be based in the UK - a massive investment with hundreds of jobs.

We no longer have faith in the UK Quangos on the issue of free speech. For this reason, it will now be based in the States. I'll be out there in the next week to start laying the groundwork for it.

But that’s not all that’s wrong here. The trend that the graph depicts is based on a poverty line of $1.90 (£1.44) per day, which is the equivalent of what $1.90 could buy in the US in 2011. It’s obscenely low by any standard, and we now have piles of evidence that people living just above this line have terrible levels of malnutrition and mortality. Earning $2 per day doesn’t mean that you’re somehow suddenly free of extreme poverty. Not by a long shot.

Scholars have been calling for a more reasonable poverty line for many years. Most agree that people need a minimum of about $7.40 per day to achieve basic nutrition and normal human life expectancy, plus a half-decent chance of seeing their kids survive their fifth birthday. And many scholars, including Harvard economist Lant Pritchett, insist that the poverty line should be set even higher, at $10 to $15 per day.

So what happens if we measure global poverty at the low end of this more realistic spectrum – $7.40 per day, to be extra conservative? Well, we see that the number of people living under this line has increased dramatically since measurements began in 1981, reaching some 4.2 billion people today. Suddenly the happy Davos narrative melts away.
