There’s a plus and a minus to this story about Facebook banning ads that lead to “fake news” sites. That’s the fact that Facebook is the 2 billion user gatekeeper to what’s fake or not.
In a similar story, a popular Destiny YouTuber talks about how hard it is to make money on the platform!
My first of TWO cannabis stories today. Evidently Netflix has a marijuana pop up shop to promote a new show.
Guess we can’t call it “Whole Paycheck” any more. Amazon just cut prices on lots of Whole Foods groceries to almost 50% off in several core products.
Want to get creative with your storytelling? This cool video essay teaches you how to make a good twist ending.
This great post by Kissmetrics talks about why your homepage doesn’t convert.

In, “the future is pretty much here already,” Audi shows off its solar panels for their electric vehicles. Rainy days be damned.
My second pot story of the day, evidently cannabis is effective in helping with schizophrenia and/or Tourette’s syndrome.
Lastly, this is how you play it cool. For the upcoming version of the movie Hellboy, Ed Skrein was cast to play an actor of Asian heritage. This is called whitewashing. What happened next… well, Ed said, “That’s not cool” and he backed out of the role. THAT is cool.
