Everybody chill out. Here’s why the Yahoo deal will actually be great for Tumblr.
The time's not right for Tesla -
But soon it will be. Marc Ambinder writes:
There really isn’t anything wrong with the car itself. In some ways, it’s perfect. Incredibly roomy. Styled but not stylized. Powerful. Quiet. Hugs the road. Very safe. The dashboard is like a modern glass airline cockpit. The interior is… well, you get the picture. And the Tesla is flying out of the 40 or so showrooms across America. (There are no real dealerships per se.)
So: charging the thing. That’s the big question I had, and I wasn’t satisfied.
The great workplace dilemmas of our time…
Need something to watch on Netflix this weekend? We asked The Week.com’s entertainment editor, Scott Meslow, for a recommendation:
This weekend, so many moviegoers are primed to see J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness that most box-office analysts are projecting the highest-grossing opening weekend in the franchise’s 47-year history.
But if you’d rather stay home and kick back with a glass of Romulan ale, why not check out the very best Star Trek has to offer? In the wake of 1979’s disappointing Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan arrived in 1982 to give Star Trek the shot in the arm it needed. Wrath of Khan stars a never-better William Shatner as an older, sadder James T. Kirk, a former captain who is — like the Star Trek franchise itself — teetering on the brink of irrelevancy. When the villainous Khan (first introduced in the Star Trekepisode “Space Seed”) unexpectedly reemerges as a serious threat, Kirk works with his old allies to take his vindictive adversary down, leading to a high-stakes ending that’s still both shocking and genuinely tragic (even if it was undone by later films in the series). Wrath of Khan isn’t just a great Star Trek film, or even a great science-fiction film — it’s a great film, full stop.

5 reasons the U.N. wants you to start eating insects
Reason #1? They’re good for you.
The FAO estimates that there are between 1,000 and 1,900 edible insect species. As a result, espousing the nutritional benefits of insects as a whole is tricky, akin to saying all mammals are good for you even though braised rabbit and bacon obviously have entirely different nutritional qualities.
