      Shopping by voice is getting a bit easier on the Google Home connected speaker through a partnership with Walmart. The world’s largest retailer will start shipping items through the Google Express delivery service in late September , which in turn will allow Google Home users to buy Walmart products with voice commands. Connecting a Walmart account will also provide personalized shopping recommendations, along with the ability to replenish previously ordered products.

      Here’s What The Solar Eclipse Looked Like From Delta’s Flight Of A Lifetime

      This morning, Anna Ruth Williams and Cooper Pettway found each other in the Delta Sky Club in Portland, awaiting a once-in-a-lifetime experience. They were going to fly with the eclipse. A Redditer had already caught wind of this potentially spectacular flight, Delta 2466, which is how Williams learned of it. Normally, this is a routine transcontinental flight, but today would be different–the plane happened to be traveling through the “path of totality” during the solar eclipse.

      Patagonia Steps Up Its Public Lands Activism With First-Ever TV Commercial

      Why we care: Back in March, Patagonia created a series of videos, including a 360 experience, to raise awareness for the need to protect public spaces like the Bears Ears national monument in Utah. When the Utah government planned to roll back protections for ­Bears Ears, a 1.4-million-acre swath of high desert considered sacred by local tribes–the brand led industry leaders to take their Outdoor Retailer trade show, representing an industry with almost $50 billion in revenue, to another state.

      Not Everyone Found Tina Fey’s “Sheetcaking” Funny, And Here’s Why

      There have been several times when Tina Fey sat at SNL’s Weekend Update Desk and became the right person to say the right thing at the right political moment. Last night was not one of them. At the tail end of a soul-testing week in which the president himself unambiguously threw his lot in with white supremacists and not those resisting them, viewers of SNL’s Weekend Update were probably expecting a strong response.

      “I think we’re so addicted to external stimulation that we’re not often comfortable turning inward,” Newman says. “That’s why when you start to turn inward and try quieting the mind, it can quickly lead to a general sense of anxiety or agitation, which is a disincentive to establishing the routine necessary for it to become a habit.” Many experts say it takes at least four weeks for most people to feel the results of mindfulness practice.

Actually, that’s totally normal: 70% of us suffer from “imposter syndrome,” the feeling of being a fraud, according to the International Journal of Behavioral Science.

      One of the major criticisms of The Blair Witch Project , a chief progenitor of the found footage craze, is that it was unrealistic to suggest that the lead character would in actuality keep filming the terrifying events of the movie. However, the reason Heather Donahue never puts the camera down is baked right into the mockumentary’s premise. The character clings to her role as documentarian while her woodland romp deteriorates into a certain deathmarch.

Now a company called SquarePeg is throwing them a lifeline.

      Does something feel different about the world today? Is Mercury in retrograde? It’s not. Rather, it may be that you can sense that the world has outstripped its annual resources, well before the year is over. We’re now living on extra resources we can’t afford to lose.
