Miley Cyrus, Y Combinator, economic benefits, rice wine vinegar

Let Me Explain Why Miley Cyrus VMA Performance Was Our Top Story This Morning | ... -- So, you may ask, why was this mornings top story, a spot usually given to the most important foreign or domestic news of the day, headlined Miley Cyrus Did What??? and accompanied by the subhead Twerks, stuns at VMAs? For Christs sake, there was an accompanying story with the headline Mileys Shocking Moves. In fact, putting that story front and center was actually doing, if anything, a disservice to the public. We also throw in a slideshow called Evolution of Miley, which, for those of you who dont know, is just a way for you to mindlessly click through 13 more photos of Miley Cyrus. Another side note: The Miley Cyrus story was in the same top spot we used for our 9/11 coverage. If you clicked on the story, and all the slideshows, and all the other VMA coverage, that means youve probably been on for more than seven minutes, which lowers our overall bounce rate. You want to know how many more page views the Miley Cyrus thing got than our article on the wildfires ravaging Yosemite?

Your first $1,000,000 USD in merchant processing is now free! - The Coinbase Blo ... -- Weve long believed that merchant adoption is key to bitcoin going mainstream, and the next large phase of bitcoin usage will be as customers spend their bitcoin with more merchants.

PlateJoy joins the meal delivery mix with healthy, personalized meals | PandoDai ... -- Pop-up Pantry already flamed out , unable to make the cost structure work. But Platejoy gets closer to that by delivering a full suite of meal options including snacks, while stocking you up on kitchen essentials and condiments. I thought about the Jetsons and what this process would be like in the future, and I realized there was no way people would be wandering through grocery stores trying to buy ingredients.
