The Subscription Service That Promises To Deliver ‘Jew-y Goodness’ To Your Door

There’s a (soon-to-be) new delivery service in town, but this one is ” bubbe-approved .” Hello Mazel  is a new nationwide subscription service that promises to deliver a box of both edible and non-edible Jewish goodies four times a year, starting this April for Passover. The service was dreamed up by members of The Kitchen , an alternative, non-denominational Jewish community in San Francisco and includes items that are curated by a variety of experts — from San Francisco tastemakers to Facebook’s former director of market development, Randi Zuckerberg, who is a member of the Hello Mazel team.  The team launched a  Kickstarter campaign  earlier this month and doubled its initial goal of $18,000 in just one day. It’s now the most funded Jewish project in Kickstarter’s history. The $45 boxes will ship nationwide in the U.S. and to Canada.

Inventor of BitTorrent Explains Why Manufacturers Will Stop Making Your Products Hackable

These questions originally appeared on Quora – the knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights . Answers by Bram Cohen , Inventor of BitTorrent, on Quora . Q: Should Apple be forced to de-crypt the iPhone to help the San Bernadino investigation? A: First, it should be pointed out that the central issue in the iPhone case isn’t one of cryptography, it’s tamper resistance. If you use a randomly generated 20 digit PIN then nobody will be able to forcibly unlock your iPhone even with the help of Apple, the NSA, and the Illuminati. When you have a short PIN the issue is one of physical tamper resistance.

NASA Has High Hopes For Powerful New Telescope

There’s a new telescope on the horizon — and it’s huge. NASA is planning to launch the Wide-Field Infrared Survey Telescope , or WFIRST, in the mid-2020s. The telescope has a primary mirror that is  7.9 feet in diameter and will offer a view of the sky that is 100 times larger than what the Hubble Space Telescope provides. The space agency released the  new video above  on Thursday to detail its ambitious plans for the telescope, which is meant to discover new exoplanets, unlock the secrets of dark energy and shed new light on the evolution of the cosmos. “Telescopes generally come into two different flavors,” Jason Kalirai, an  astronomer at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, says in the video. “You have really powerful, big telescopes, but those telescopes see a tiny part of the sky.

Announcing My Candidacy for President of Facebook

Dear Citizens of Facebook: Facebook is much more than Mark Zuckerberg’s server farms and his army of coders. Facebook is the most effective means today for people to communicate with each other and to form networks for collaboration beyond national borders. Facebook is an unprecedented international network of people who could make a tremendous contribution to solving the challenges of our age, if permitted. The time has come for us to declare our independence from the empire that controls us. The Internet is often conceptualized as a series of separate layers that range from Layer 1, the physical connections of wires and cables that support our communications, to Layer 7, which is the operation of applications over the Internet

Dudes Are Sending This Creepy AF Tinder Message, Thanks To A Pickup Artist

Women on Tinder, beware. At the recommendation of a pickup artist, men are asking women to sleep with them using the creepiest form letter of all time. In said message, these dudes claim to be “genuine guy[s],” not “creep[s]” or “pervert[s].” Because nothing says “genuine” like a pre-drafted sexual invitation, am I right, ladies? On Feb. 15, the Instagram account @feminist_tinder  shared a screenshot of a message sent in by a woman who said she and her friends had received the same message on Tinder “word for word.”  “Hey, I know this is kinda weird and pushy haha, but would you like to have sex with me? I’m not a creep or a pervert, just a genuine guy

San Francisco Entrepreneur Suggests Removing ‘Riffraff’ As Homeless Solution

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Martin Shkreli of gentrification. Justin Keller , a self-described wealthy tech company founder and entrepreneur living in San Francisco for the past three years, has had enough of the homeless roaming his city. He published an open letter to Mayor Ed Lee and Police Chief Greg Suhr on Feb. 15, decrying the “riffraff” walking his streets and bemoaning a commute that forces him to see the “despair of homeless people to and from my way to work every day.” “I’ve been living in SF for over three years, and without a doubt it is the worst it has ever been,” he begins. “Every day, on my way to, and from work, I see people sprawled across the sidewalk, tent cities, human feces, and the faces of addiction. The city is becoming a shanty town … Worst of all, it is unsafe.” Keller’s letter starts off with some legitimate concerns over the state of San Francisco

The Bottom Line: ‘Private Citizens’ By Tony Tulathimutte

If a friend or a relative or a paranoid new love interest ransacked your apartment, dredging up the diary you kept in college but never bothered to throw away, the collection of beer caps or stamps or thingamabobs, the extra-lacy underwear, would he be surprised by what he found? It’s a question on dating sites everywhere, a litmus test for secretiveness. But the truth is, no matter how much we strive for honesty — factual or emotional — most of us have sides of ourselves that seldom leave the confines of our own cagey heads, or at least our own search histories. Often, if Tony Tulathimutte’s new novel Private Citizens is to be believed, those selves-within-ourselves can be pretty nasty. His debut book follows four friends who’ve somewhat begrudgingly reunited in San Francisco a few years after graduating from Stanford. Will is a programmer whose porn addiction could only be cured by his unrelenting obsession with his newish girlfriend Vanya, a super-hot paraplegic girl who devotes most of her time and conversational energy to establishing herself in the startup world.
