He has also promised to make Apple  start manufacturing its products in the US  instead of China.

Inside Hampton Creek’s Empty Boardroom

The group departure happened in June and was the culmination of over a year’s worth of infighting during which many of Hampton Creek’s executives, investors and board members lost faith in the aggressive founder they’d previously hailed as a visionary. They came to question whether Tetrick was the right leader for the struggling startup, which was losing money, missing product deadlines and trying to manage a litany of food safety problems, according to interviews with more than a dozen Hampton Creek insiders, former employees and investors, who asked to remain anonymous because they have signed non-disclosure agreements with the company.

The Pi 3 does have built-in support for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, something the Gigabyte machine lacks although it has a mini-PCIe slot for the addition of a Wi-Fi card.

This TV Backlighting System Fucked Me Up

This is opulence. Suddenly, there is extra light blasting from behind my TV screen, making a day-glow title sequence positively atomic. The DreamScreen, a backlighting system that’s designed to make your TV viewing more immersive, is a luxury that I absolutely don’t need. In theory, the supplementary lights change color based on the pixels on the TV screen for an “immersive theater experience.” In practice, it’s an overstimulating, distracting, nauseating novelty, and I can’t get enough of this shit.

Lyft is growing faster than Uber, but there's a long way to go

Lyft's driver-generated revenue went up 25 percent to hit $1 billion in the second quarter of 2017, up from $800 million in Q1. In aggregate, the company has a ways to go before it rivals Uber's $8.25 billion gross bookings it earned in the same period -- but that figure only improved 10 percent quarter-on-quarter. Ergo, Lyft is growing faster.

NASA moves ahead with plans to build a quiet supersonic jet

NASA's dreams of a quiet supersonic jet are one step closer to fruition. The agency tells Bloomberg that it'll start taking bids to build a larger (94-foot) real-world demo version of the aircraft that it tunnel-tested in June, and we now have a clearer sense of how well it'll perform in real life. The design is expected to reduce noise to no more than 65dBa, which is exceptionally quiet for an aircraft -- co-designer Lockheed Martin likens it to the inside of a luxury car. That would make it safe to fly just about anywhere. The Concorde, by contrast, was an assault on your ears at 90dBa and was limited to overseas flights.

Sperm counts among men have more than halved in the last 40 years , research suggests, although the drivers behind the decline remain unclear. The latest findings reveal that between 1973 and 2011, the concentration of sperm in the ejaculate of men in western countries has fallen by an average of 1.4% a year, leading to an overall drop of just over 52%. The study, published in the journal Human Reproduction Update by an international team of researchers, drew on 185 studies conducted between 1973 and 2011, involving almost 43,000 men. The team split the data based on whether the men were from western countries -- including Australia and New Zealand as well as countries in North America and Europe -- or from elsewhere. After accounting for factors including age and how long men had gone without ejaculation, the team found that sperm concentration fell from 99 million per ml in 1973 to 47.1 million per ml in 2011 -- a decline of 52.4% -- among western men unaware of their fertility. For the same group, total sperm count -- the number of sperm in a semen sample -- fell by just under 60%.

Apple manufacturer Quanta seen riding high on 'Apple Watch Series 3' coming this fall

Regular Apple supplier Quanta Computer is likely to enjoy strong revenues in the second half of 2017, in part because of the third-generation Apple Watch, reports reaffirmed on Tuesday. Compal Electronics has joined the Watch supply chain but will probably handle older-generation models still on sale, said the Chinese-language Economic Daily News , cited by DigiTimes . The company's involvement was rumored as far back as April , and at the time said to involve taking over some Series 2 production. It's unknown if Apple will continue to sell the Series 1 in a post-"Series 3" environment. The 1 is essentially a first-generation Watch with a faster processor, lacking upgrades like waterproofing or GPS. Since 2015, flagship Watch production has been handled entirely by Quanta, making it natural for that relationship to continue. Rumors about the "Series 3" remain relatively few and far between. One of the most common is that that device could get LTE, allowing it to operate independently of an iPhone —at least, to a greater degree than the Series 2. It may also get built-in sleep tracking , like many other wearables, and possibly even a non-invasive glucose monitor.

Sam Adams Tries To Raise Up Craft Brewing By Supporting The Competition

The program has made 1,300 loans worth $17.7 million total since it started. That includes about $1 million for 40 small independent craft brewers. According to that the Brewers Association, indie craft brewers generally make less than 6 million barrels a year with the brewery owning at least 75% of its own operations. All Brewing The American Dream recipients fit under that umbrella, with the majority having less than $500,000 in revenue. The average loan amount is $10,000, a sum that, if used wisely, often spurs job creation. Once you create a keg wash system, say, you need a person to run it. As production increases, the demand for delivery drivers and sales staff might grow. (Sam Adams estimates that each infusion ultimately leads to three to four more employees.)
