Donald Trump wore proper safety glasses to look at the solar eclipse that crossed the U.S. today – at least at first. Near the end of his viewing, the President seems to have forgotten why he was wearing those stupid glasses to begin with, since he took them off and stared directly at the astral bodies, which is not advised as intelligent by anyone, eclipse or no eclipse. Trump’s aide even shouted “don’t look” when he made the move, but to no effect. The Commander-In-Chief removed the protective glasses and gazed upward, squinting and even pointing at the thing he was told not to look at.
Via @science_insider: Parts of the US will get to see a total solar eclipse on August 21. While the entire country will get to witness at least a partial eclipse, the lucky people who live along a 70-mile-wide streak will be able to see totality – when the moon crosses between the Earth and the sun, completely blocking out the sun's light. For those who plan to watch the total solar eclipse in person or via livestream, there are a few key stages to keep an eye out for as the moon makes its way across the sun.

HBO’s international partners and affiliates should be extra careful going forward: For the second time in a little over two weeks, one of them was responsible for the early leak of an episode before its official airing. Episode 6, which is set for its broadcast premiere this Sunday, August 20, hit torrent sites after it was aired accidentally by HBO Nordic and HBO España. HBO said a third-party vendor was responsible this time around, and this has nothing to do with the much-publicized HBO hack from the end of July.

The DeLorean name is iconic thanks largely to Back to the Future, in which one of the original automaker's cars was turned into a time machine by 'Doc' Emmett Brown. Now, the original DeLorean founder's nephew is working on making flying cars a reality, with his own aerospace company.

Comparably has come out with a ranking of the top 10 tech companies for people of color, as well as the top 10 for women. Comparably’s gender score is based on how female employees rate their experience at a respective company, while the “diversity” score is based on how employees of color rate their experience at a company. All of the ratings were collected between March 2016 and August 2017. As you may have noticed, in light of the controversial post about gender from a former Google employee, Google is missing from the top 10 list for gender.

Our personality has significant power on how we see the world. It is our personality that makes us interpret events in very different ways. A recent study, published in the Journal of Research in Personality suggests that our openness to experience is key to changing how we see the world. The study suggests that people who are open to experience are “more likely to experience certain visual perceptions.” This is what researchers at the University of Melbourne Australia found when they studied 123 volunteers. Explaining the links between openness and creativity, the researchers write that our ability to merge the two images is “like a ‘creative’ solution to the problem presented by the two incompatible stimuli.”

They have started work to fight the rise with an estimated cost of $20 billion dollars. This is to protect a risk of loss in Miami that has about $6 trillion dollar in assets.
