01) Sir Martin Rees: Earth in its final century?


“In a taut soliloquy that takes us from the origins of the universe to the last days of a dying sun 6 billion years later, renowned cosmologist Sir Martin Rees explains why the 21st century is a pivotal moment in the history of humanity: the first time in history when we can materially change ourselves and our planet. Stunning imagery of cosmological wonders show us the universe as we know it now. Speaking as “a concerned member of the human race,” Rees harkens to the wisdom of Einstein, calling for scientists to act as moral compasses, confronting the coming developments and ensuring our role in “the immense future.”

01) Ana And Cenk DUNK On Ben Shapiro


“Right-wing troll Ben Shapiro has some helpful advice for anyone who’s working two jobs and still struggling to make ends meet. Well, it’s less advice, and more a deeply immoral critique: How dumb are you for taking a low-paying job that requires you to get a second job in the first place!!

“If you had to work more than one job to have a roof over your head or food on the table, you probably shouldn’t have taken the job that’s not paying you enough. That’d be a you problem,” Shapiro said on Wednesday’s episode of his podcast.

Shapiro went to cite a recent U.S. Census Bureau figure that 8.3 percent of workers had more than one job in 2013, insisting that that’s not many people at all. The report itself is titled “About 13M U.S. Workers Have More Than One Job,” but Shapiro did a great job of skirting that figure in his own monologue.
