Atlanta, Georgia , Oct. 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Stephanie Hess once lived in a powerful world of Fortune 500 companies. You’d think this is a success story about a woman climbing to the top. Instead, this success story was how she freed herself from a life she didn’t love and then built one she did. 

With a prestigious background in business and having worked for major movers and shakers like Estee Lauder and the New York Knicks, she thought she’d found her way, but something was off. In fact, when she did finally leave her corporate career, she found she’d been diagnosed with “Corporate PTSD.” How was that possible? She’d been doing everything she thought she was supposed to. Where was the happiness and satisfaction, along with her authenticity?

Decent living for all does not have to cost the Earth — ScienceDaily

Global energy consumption in 2050 could be reduced to the levels of the 1960s and still provide a decent standard of living for a population three times larger, according to a new study.

The study led by the University of Leeds has estimated the energy resource needed for everyone to be provided decent living standards in 2050 — meaning all their basic human needs such as shelter, mobility, food and hygiene are met, while also having access to modern, high quality healthcare, education and information technology.

The findings, published in in the journal Global Environmental Change, reveal that decent living standards could be provided to the entire global population of 10 billion that is expected to be reached by 2050, for less than 40% of today’s global energy. This is roughly 25% of that forecast by the International Energy Agency if current trends continue.

This level of global energy

Snakes disembowel and feed on the organs of living toads in a first for science

Snakes disembowel and feed on the organs of living toads in a first for science
A Small-banded kukri snake with its head inserted through the right side of the abdomen of an Asian black-spotted toad, in order to extract and eat the organs.

While the majority of snakes would normally swallow their prey whole, the Small-banded Kukri Snake seems to have evolved a particularly macabre feeding habit that has never before been witnessed in a serpent.


During a survey on the relatively small-bodied Asian kukri snakes in Thailand, a Danish-Thai research team, led by Henrik Bringsøe, documented three occasions where a snake uses its enlarged posterior maxillary teeth to cut open the abdomen of

How ‘Microsoft Flight Simulator’ became a ‘living game’ with Azure AI

Microsoft Flight Simulator is a triumph, one that fully captures the meditative experience of soaring through the clouds. But to bring the game to life, Microsoft and developer Asobo Studio needed more than an upgraded graphics engine to make its planes look more realistic. They needed a way to let you believably fly anywhere on the planet, with true-to-life topography and 3D models for almost everything you see, something that’s especially difficult in dense cities.

A task like that would be practically impossible to accomplish by hand. But it’s the sort of large-scale data processing that Microsoft’s Azure AI was built for. The company was able to push 2.5 petabytes worth of Bing Maps satellite photo data through Azure machine learning to construct the virtual world of Flight Simulator. You could say it’s really the cloud that brings the game to life. Azure also helps to model real-time weather. (That’s
