Andrey Zvyagintsev is Russia’s most lauded film-maker, and his success is due in no small part to his obsessive, Tolstoyan attention to detail. In his hands, minutiae attain mystical force. His upcoming film “Loveless” tells the story of a couple whose relationship has broken down after more than a decade of marriage. During an argument, their 12-year-old son, Alyosha, goes missing, and a search ensues. It's a human tale of how you can wake up one day and find yourself with nothing. To discover why Zvyagintsev hopes his work will make viewers re-evaluate their own lives, click on the link in our bio. Photo: Capital Pictures #film #cinema #Zvyagintsev #Russia #Loveless

The global success of Nando’s (@nandosuk) is built on the flavour imparted by a small red chilli in its signature peri-peri sauce. In its original form, peri-peri dates back to the 15th century when Portuguese colonisers in Mozambique added  locally grown chillies to their lemon-grilled chicken. It spread throughout southern Africa, evolving as it went. In northern Mozambique, coconut plays a strong role. In the south, lemon and garlic are more dominant. Today, 1,400 farmers in southern Africa now grow a unique variety of the plant just for the restaurant chain. To discover how the world fell in love with a flavour, click on the link in our bio.

Many forget that Brian Chesky, the CEO and co-founder of Airbnb, is not a typical Silicon Valley entrepreneur. He wasn’t a coder and he didn’t attend Harvard or Stanford, schools well known for nurturing multi-billion dollar founders. Rather, Chesky was a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, where he received a degree in industrial design.

While some in the Valley investors were initially skeptical of his background, Chesky believes the school and its programs benefit founders. “I think RISD produces great entrepreneurs,” Chesky said in an interview. “They teach you that creativity can solve any problems.” In a recent conversation for the @mastersofscale podcast series hosted by Reid Hoffman, Chesky shared his childhood fascination with redesigning everything from toys to tennis shoes -- a drive for problem solving that would help him reshape how we travel.

“I think that there's really something to the strategy of just learn, and go as quickly as you can,” Zuckerberg tells Hoffman. “Even if not every single release is perfect, I think you're going to end up doing better over a year or two than you would be if you just waited to get feedback for a year of all your ideas.” And at Facebook, this is what they do every single day, says Zuckerberg.

At any given point in time, there isn't just one version of Facebook running, there are probably 10,000. Any engineer at the company can basically decide that they want to test something. There are some rules on sensitive things, but in general, an engineer can test something, and they can launch a version of Facebook not to the whole community, but maybe to 10,000 people or 50,000 people—whatever is necessary to get a good test of an experience," he shares in the podcast. "And then, they get a readout of how that affected all of the different metrics, and things that we care about. How were people connecting? How were people sharing? Do people have more friends in this version? Of course, business metrics, like how does this cost the efficiency of running the service, how much revenue are we making?" By doing so, Zuckerberg creates a constant feedback loop, allowing Facebook to test their assumptions. “Giving people the tools to be able to go get that data, without having to argue whether their idea’s good through layers of management before testing something, frees people up to move quicker," he says in the podcast. "If the thing doesn't work, then we add that to our documentation of all the lessons that we've learned over time. If it does work, then we can incorporate those small changes into the base of what Facebook is—that now everyone else who is trying to build an improvement, that's the new baseline that they need to get against.” _

Sectarian fires fuel European terrorism: Choosing sides in the Sunni-Shia conflict will only ensure safe spaces for jihadis.
Philip Stephens writes: "There was no linear connection between the events in Riyadh and Manchester — no obvious pathway between US president Donald Trump’s speech to Arab leaders in the Saudi Arabian capital and the wicked act of terrorism at a pop concert in the north of England.
For all that, we should feel uncomfortable with the coincidence. The perpetrators alone bear responsibility for murderous bombings such as that in Manchester. There is no room for “ifs” or “buts” or for spurious moral equivalence in such matters.

It would also be a mistake to pretend that Islamist extremism is indifferent to the policies of western governments. At its most basic, the latest in the long line of indiscriminate attacks in European cities was a reminder that we cannot build walls against the world beyond." Illustration by Ingram Pinn

Elon Musk’s tunnel boring company still isn’t quite as well-articulated as his other three companies, which include the well-established SpaceX and Tesla, as well as the newly minted Neurolink brain interface company. The Boring Company has by far the punniest name, however, and now it also has some branded hardware — an industrial tunnel boring machine emblazoned with the company’s non-nonsense logo.

SpaceX engineer Steve Davis, who runs SpaceX’s advanced projects division, posted to his Instagram page an image of The Boring Company’s big tubular tunnel digger, and the cylindrical beast makes it very clear that Musk is serious about his plan to wind networks of tunnels under dense urban development to help alleviate traffic and also give Hyperloop transit systems somewhere to run.
