This week, Netflix said that its long-term goal is to have a site filled with 50% licensed content and 50% original programming.Although the streaming service is quite a ways off from achieving that goal, this October might be the biggest month for Netflix originals to date.By my count, there are 24 original shows, movies and specials coming next month, which might even be a new record.MUST SEE: 10 hidden gestures in iOS 10 to help you get the most out of your iPhoneThose original include shows like The Ranch, The Fall, Black Mirror and Mascots, as well as comedy specials from Joe Rogan, Russell Peters and the Trailer Park Boys.Check out the full list of additions for October 2016 below:
At 8:30 a.m. on a recent Friday, Dean Thomas, chief marketing officer for influencer marketing agency Gnack, stared at his to-do list for the day: phone calls with the marketing team, write up press releases, reach out to 500 influencers to get their feedback and check Facebook ad campaigns.“They allow me to battle the distractions and stay more focused,” said Thomas who started taking nootropics this past January, and now takes them twice a week.They are also looked at as a “safe” alternative to Adderall, a stimulant often consumed recreationally.Charlie Fiordalis, chief digital officer for agency MediaStorm, started making his own nootropic mix back in 2013.And then he got hooked up with a nootropic pill called “alpha brain” after comedian Joe Rogan discussed them on his podcast.Now, he takes alpha brain every morning as well as caffeine and L-Theanine at 3 p.m. every day.
Roseanne Barr took to Twitter early Wednesday morning to suggest that the racist tweet she sent about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, which prompted ABC to cancel her sitcom, was the result of taking the prescription drug Ambien."guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me," she wrote in a since-deleted tweet."It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting."ABC cancelled Roseanne Barr's sitcom, "Roseanne," on Tuesday after Barr tweeted a racist comment that compared former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to an ape.Barr has gone on a Twitter barrage following the show's cancellation, apologizing to Jarrett and, in a series of tweets, suggesting that her racist comment about Jarrett was the result of taking the prescription sleep drug Ambien."I think Joe Rogan is right about ambien,” Barr wrote in a since-deleted tweet around 2 a.m.
Roseanne Barr’s show was cancelled yesterday after she tweeted a racist joke against a former adviser to President Obama.But Barr is more active on the site than ever, retweeting supposed hypocrisy by Disney, and even partially blaming the sleep drug Ambien for her racist tweet.Barr spent the night tweeting apologies to Valerie Jarrett, the Obama official who Barr said looked like a cross between the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes.But Barr also retweeted plenty of far right users who believe that ABC was hypocritical to cancel her show, since left-leaning entertainers have said offensive things about President Donald Trump.But Barr started taking heat yet again when she explained that maybe it was the Ambien that made her do “weird stuff” like send out racist messages.“I think Joe Rogan is right about ambien,” Barr tweeted at roughly 2am ET, 11pm PT.
Over the past decade, the most popular podcasts have elevated the medium to the same pop culture status shared by our favorite movies and TV shows.However, there’s one significant difference.While you likely don’t have the cash to backroll a movie or television series, all you need to create a podcast is a microphone, a computer, a distribution outlet…and of course, a killer idea.But that doesn’t mean all you have to do is crack a mic and start yapping.Like any other medium, you need to know what works — and what doesn’t — in the podcasting realm, which are lessons you can learn in this How to Start a Podcast course bundle.It’s only $49 (81 percent off) right now from TNW Deals.
And to think I was just lamenting the fact that with the decision to end the quixotic bid to take Tesla private, we wouldn’t have anything fun to say about Elon Musk.Tesla’s stock has plunged from $379.59 on the day Musk tweeted his plan to take Tesla private to $280.95 at the close of trading yesterday.Questions continue to swirl about Musk’s leadership and whether Tesla can continue to meet production goals on its Model 3 and avoid a big cash crunch.During the podcast, Musk notes that he has been thinking a lot about designs for an electric plane, and how the battery system could work.Though he notes that he’s unlikely to pursue the idea for now because, he’s like, totally running three other companies: Tesla, Space X, and the Boring Company (which he describes a “hobby.”)Apparently, the word “focus” is not in the man’s vocabulary.
Tesla shares plunged as much as 10% Friday morning following two high-profile executive departures.Tesla shares have since recovered and were down 5.4% to $265.77 a share at 8:20 am P.T.The executive departures were just the latest tumult at the automaker headed by CEO Elon Musk .Dave Morton, company’s chief accounting officer, resigned from Tesla on Tuesday a month after taking the job, according to an SEC regulatory filing Friday.News of his departure was quickly followed by another.This time it was Gaby Toledano, who joined Tesla in May 2017 after 10 years on the executive team at video game publisher Electronic Arts.

Elon Musk appeared on the "Joe Rogan Experience" podcast on Friday, where he said that The Boring Company first started as a joke.Musk said that he couldn't be sure that the project's ambitious plans to build a high-speed transport system under LA would be successful — but the idea was born out of "desperation.""I don't see any other ideas for improving the traffic," Musk said.Elon Musk described The Boring Company is a "hobby company" that first started as a joke — and said there is a reasonable chance that his plan to build tunnels for a transit network under LA would be successful.On the "Joe Rogan Experience" podcast on Friday, Musk outlined the origins of The Boring Company, a tunnel construction company that is trying to build a high-speed transit systems under LA, and later other cities."And we decided to make it real, and dig a tunnel under LA.
Elon Musk took a drag on a joint during his interview with former UFC commentator Joe Rogan.Musk said last month that he is no fan of marijuana, arguing that it kills productivity.Elon Musk took a drag on a fat joint while being interviewed on the "Joe Rogan Experience" podcast on Thursday.Musk spoke to Rogan for more than two-and-a-half hours, in the latter stages of which the presenter offered Tesla's CEO a drag on the joint, which was rolled with tobacco."It's marijuana inside of tobacco," said Rogan, and asked if Musk had ever had it."Yeah I think I tried one once," replied Musk.
Elon Musk made an appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience, a podcast hosted by the eponymous comedian, where the pair smoked a blunt and pondered the flat-Earth movement, the future of AI, “inventing shit” and several other of the eccentric billionaire’s favorite topics.The now-viral interview, which was live-streamed to thousands of viewers, was immediately followed by two high-profile executive departures at Tesla.Here are a few highlights.Elon Musk probably got high.We weren’t in the room with him, but the Tesla CEO looks to have inhaled what was described as a mixture of marijuana and tobacco.“You probably can’t because of stockholders,” Rogan said to Musk before he took a hit of the blunt.
Elon Musk said it is "probably not wise" to kick robots in a wide-ranging interview with Joe Rogan.Musk, who has famously voiced concerns about AI, said he worries less about it now because he has adopted a more fatalistic attitude.He believes the danger with AI will come when people weaponise it against each other.Robots are a bit like elephants, they never forget.Musk expanded on previous remarks about AI during two-and-a-half-hour long podcast the "Joe Rogan Experience," presented by comedian and former UFC commentator Joe Rogan.Rogan joked about animal protection group PETA putting out a statement that you shouldn't kick robots, in reference to footage of Boston Dynamics robots being kicked around by engineers to test their sturdiness.
Elon Musk thinks we're all probably trapped in a "Matrix"-like pseudo existence.The universe is 13.8 billion years old, so any civilizations that may have arisen throughout the cosmos have had loads and loads of time to hone their technological know-how, the SpaceX founder and CEO explained early this morning (Sept. 7) during a long, wide-ranging and very entertaining appearance on comedian Joe Rogan's popular podcast, "The Joe Rogan Experience."[13 Ways to Hunt Intelligent Aliens]"I think most likely — this is just about probability — there are many, many simulations," he added."You might as well call them reality, or you could call them multiverse."You'd make a simulation that's way more interesting than base reality," Musk said, citing the video games and movies that humanity makes, which are "distillation[s] of what's interesting about life."
After a string of executive departures over the past several months that continued Friday with the resignations of two people in high-profile positions, CEO Elon Musk announced a series of promotions and job updates in an email sent to employees.To be clear, these are not new hires and some of these promotions were already finalized before the most recent resignations reported earlier Friday.In other words, Musk didn’t suddenly promote a bunch of executives in response to the negative market reaction Friday to the resignations or his marijuana-sampling during a live-streamed podcast with Joe Rogan.Still, the promotions are notable because it gives rarely-provided insight into the structure of the company—as well who is left.For example, Kevin Kassekert previously headed up infrastructure development, a job that included leading the construction and development of Tesla’s gigafactory near Reno, Nevada.His new title is vice president of people and places, a position that gives him responsibility of human resources—a job that was once filled by Gaby Toledano— as well as facilities, construction, and infrastructure.
The CEO of Tesla and Space X smoked marijuana toward the end of a more than two-and-half-hour live interview Thursday on comedian Joe Rogan's podcast, the Joe Rogan Experience.The conversation touched on everything from flamethrowers to artificial intelligence."I think I tried one once," said Musk, when asked if he had ever smoked a mix of weed and tobacco."I mean, it's legal right?"Musk then took a single puff from the joint offered by Rogan.The interview was filmed in Los Angeles, where marijuana is legal under state law.
Elon Musk on the "Joe Rogan Experience" podcast.YouTube/Joe Rogan ExperienceDuring an appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Tesla CEO Elon Musk discussed how he feels apps like Instagram aren't a great representation of how life truly is."Some of the happiest seeming people — actually some of the saddest people in reality," Musk said.It was part of a nearly three-hour conversation with comedian Joe Rogan, in which the two discussed Musk's companies, artificial intelligence, and smoke marijuana together.Elon Musk isn't buying the rose-tinted glasses that come with looking at people's lives through social media apps like Instagram.During his nearly three-hour conversation on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Tesla CEO Musk and comedian Joe Rogan discussed topics ranging from Musk's businesses, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and then smoked some marijuana together.
It was the single puff felt 'round the world.Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk took one (legal) puff of a marijuana cigarette Thursday on comedian Joe Rogan's podcast, the Joe Rogan Experience.The podcast was two and a half hours long, but social media quickly focused on the brief second of smoking.Musk didn't exactly go full Spicoli with his lone puff, saying "I don't actually notice any effect," and "I don't find that it is very good for productivity."But that didn't prevent Tesla stock from taking a hit Friday after both the company's chief accounting officer, Dave Morton, and its head of human resources, Gabrielle Toledano, announced they were leaving the electric carmaker.Many people on social media found comic value in a billionaire CEO pulling a Big Lebowski.
The thing to remember about Elon Musk smoking a blunt with Joe Rogan is not that he took just one hit, or that he didn’t seem to know what a blunt was, or that he whiffed on an opportunity to show off just how useful his “not a flamethrower” can be.It’s that it came 130 minutes into his two-and-a-half-hour interview with Rogan, for the former Fear Factor host’s podcast, livestreamed on YouTube.Two hours in which Musk got to play the most popular version of himself: the far-out thinking engineer who doesn’t conform to the status quo.Two hours in which he whoa’d Rogan with cogent breakdowns of the threat and promise of artificial intelligence, his plan to obliterate traffic with underground tunnels, and his enlightened fear of chimpanzees.He did it while remaining relatable, likeable, and interesting.And while the interview had its boring moments, it was, overall, a lot of fun.
After a full day of the internet intimately dissecting Elon Musk’s pot use, reports began to surface that the US Air Force has opened an investigation into the Tesla and SpaceX CEO’s drug habit, since SpaceX is a government launch provider.However, an Air Force official tells The Verge that those reports are premature and that the military hasn’t figured out what it’s going to do.“It’s inaccurate that there is an investigation.We’ll need time to determine the facts and the appropriate process to handle the situation,” an Air Force spokesperson told The Verge.It’s just one of hundreds of stories that have popped up in the aftermath of Musk smoking weed on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast.And at first it makes some kind of sense: SpaceX launches satellites for the US Air Force after all, and the use of marijuana is prohibited for those in the military and people with government security clearances.
Twitter permanently banned Alex Jones and Infowars.President Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court defended his stance on net neutrality.And Elon Musk got high with Joe Rogan.If you missed anything, now's the time to catch up.I turned to one of the most hostile environments online for help.The Northeast's tallest peak is an unforgiving environment for people and gadgets.
