If episode 3 is any indication, Extant is emerging as a series that deftly juggles out-of-this-world sci-fi spookiness, alongside relatable human problems
While viewers see Molly Woods (Halle Berry) grapple with visions of her dead former lover Marcus Dawkins (Sergio Harford), crop circle-esque rings popping up from under her skin and searing stomach pains, we are also privy to the challenges of her home life. For instance, Molly's struggle to reconnect with her humanoid-robot son Ethan (Pierce Gagnon), is reminiscent of the difficulties some parents face when raising non-birth (i.e. adopted or foster) children Read more...More about Cbs, Television, Entertainment, Tv, and Halle Berry

European regulators are not happy with the way Google has handled the controversial "right to be forgotten" ruling.
In May, the European Court of Justice ruled that citizens had a right to ask search engines to have links to outdated, irrelevant or misleading information about them removed. Since then, Google has complied with the ruling creating a web form to request a link removal and trying to draw as much public attention to the issue as possible, even publicly criticizing the ruling.
On Thursday, Cristopher Graham, Britain's Information Commissioner, said that he expects a "tsunami" of requests. And referring to Google, added that "the polluter pays, the polluter should clear up." Read more...More about Google, Europe, Privacy, Media, and Us World
Get your goggles bathing suit, it's time to go for a dip in America's top swim cities
According to a new study commissioned by USA Swimming and Speedo, the following cities are the most swim-friendly in the United States
The scoring was based upon the percentage of active swimmers in the area, the number of swim clubs, accessible pools and top-level swimmers from the area relative to the population.
Topping off the list is Ann-Arbor, Michigan. Despite the city's lack of swim-worthy weather for the majority of the year, the area has produced more than 60 Olympian swimmers. Read more...More about Travel, Lists, Lifestyle, Watercooler, and Travel Leisure

As if starting your own business and projecting sales weren't hard enough already, setting up shop in major cities also calls for an abundance of paperwork and bureaucratic hurdles, often unforeseen and potentially detrimental.

Google's media streaming gadget Chromecast launched one year ago Thursday, and to celebrate its big birthday, the company announced an impressive stat: It has streamed more than 400 million casts and Google has sold "millions" of the devices.
The Chromecast, a dongle which "casts" (or streams) online videos from your tablet, smartphone or computer to HDTVs, has added hundreds of apps in the past year, including HBO Go, ESPN, PBS Kids, Gooogle+ Photos and Hulu

More than 6,000 developers are actively developing apps for the device across Android, iOS and Chrome, Google said. One incentive for investing in the device is Chromecast's $35 retail cost, which puts it ahead of its pricier competitors like the $100 Apple TV and the $50 Roku. Other features the device has added in the past year include mirroring and the ability to stream content from a central TV to multiple phones using ultrasonic sound.

Snoopy is branching out on social media and taking his sister, Belle, with him. The iconic Peanuts character is joining an expanding list of brands on the small but growing social network We Heart It.
We Heart It, which reports 30 million members and recently added ads, is something of the social media lovechild between Instagram and Pinterest. It has the artsy images of the former and the grid-style pinup board of the latter. It differs from most networks, where hateful comments seem to inevitably bubble up, by focusing on more positive imagery and banning comments of any kind.Entertainment, Tv, Peanuts, and We Heart It
Happiness isn’t something you find, or work toward — it’s something you buy and have delivered. Or at least that’s the premise of one of the newest jobs over in the C-suite. Now, alongside the CEO, CFO and their ilk, we have the CHO, or chief happiness officer. As the name clearly suggests, the CHO is responsible for the contentment of individual employees, sort of like an HR manager, but on steroids; the theory goes that happy workers are productive workers, so happiness turns out to be in the company’s best interest. Perhaps unsurprisingly, many CHOs reside in Silicon Valley — both at startups and more blue chip tech companies. Read more...More about Privacy, Business Productivity, Happiness, Business, and Jobs

Without thinking, humans tend to mimic the facial expressions of others. When other individuals smile, people smile and feel warmth. When others frown, people frown and share their sadness. This empathetic response is so strong that people might even instinctively copy the facial expressions of creepy robots, a new study suggests.
Researchers observed how students interacted with a robot made to look like physicist Albert Einstein to explore the phenomenon of facial mimicry. This instinctive human quirk, also observed in chimps, causes individuals to subconsciously mimic each other's facial expressions.

But there are so many little things that need to get done every day.
It’s so hard to stay focused on the big picture.
Sound like you?
If so, I can relate. In running my own business, I know how challenging it can be to get all of the “little things” done, while still making progress toward your bigger, more meaningful career goals.

Comic-Con's buzzy, newsy movie panels really get cranking on Thursday, starting with a morning session for DreamWorks Animation and Paramount Pictures in the afternoon.
But Wednesday night had its own special place in the Comic-Con universe. Preview Night is all about roaming the more than 600,000 square feet of the main floor at San Diego's Convention Center in search of freebies, sneak peeks and shiny objects to fill up your camera's memory card.
The cosplayers don't generally come out on Preview Night — they tend to emerge as the weekend approaches — but really, its purpose is for badge holders to marvel at all enormous displays that brands, movie studios and TV networks have erected to attract attention at the 'Con before the homemade costumes steal the show.

DONETSK, Ukraine — In an interview with Reuters on Wednesday, Alexander Khodakovsky, commander of the Russian-backed Vostok Battalion, admitted that rebels possessed a BUK missile system — the same system Kiev and Western intelligence agencies say downed Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in eastern Ukraine
“I knew that a BUK came from Luhansk. At the time I was told that a BUK from Luhansk was coming under the flag of the LNR,” Reuters quoted him as saying, referring to the Luhansk People’s Republic, one of two rebel strongholds in eastern Ukraine. They also control the eastern region of Donetsk.
