Elon Musk and Bill Gates have sparred over everything from the coronavirus to electric cars. Here’s where their simmering feud began and how it’s escalated amid the pandemic. (TSLA)

Summary List PlacementBill Gates and Elon Musk don't exactly see eye to eye. While the Microsoft billionaire and the Tesla and SpaceX titan have never had a particularly cozy relationship, things have heated up over the past year as the two have openly sparred about everything from electric vehicles to the coronavirus. The two moguls are among the world's wealthiest, eclipsed only by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. While their public spats may not always be serious, they do appear to fundamentally disagree about the coronavirus — and as major players in virus treatment and the vaccine to protect against it, their clashes carry even more weight.

Nickmercs and Dr Disrespect brand Call Of Duty: Warzone Season 2 update ‘horrible’

How do you feel about the new season of Call Of Duty? (Pic: Activision)The likes of Nickmercs and Dr Disrespect are less than impressed with the latest Call Of Duty: Warzone update. Call Of Duty: Warzone and Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War recently received their Season 2 updates, which have brought more new content to the game alongside quality-of-life improvements. Ideally, a new season would not only attract new players, but also appease long-time players and encourage them to either continue playing or even return to the game if they had dropped it. In the case of a couple of prolific streamers, that hasn’t worked. Nickmercs, Twitch streamer and member of esports organisation FaZe, has not been subtle about his displeasure for the Season 2 update, specifically the one for War

Black Golden Globes wins don’t make up for the lack of diversity behind the scenes

John Boyega won a Golden Globe for his performance in Small Axe (Picture: Getty Images)Tina Fey summed it up best at last night’s Golden Globes: Awards shows are stupid but even stupid things need inclusivity.  On the face of it, Black talent cleaned up at this year’s awards with Daniel Kaluuya, John Boyega, Andra Day and the late, great Chadwick Boseman earning the top best and supporting actor accolades across the TV and movie categories.  Their deserved achievements will undoubtedly inspire future generations of young, Black, British, African-American men and women from small towns dreaming big of making it in Hollywood.  However, the problem is that no matter what’s happening in the front-of-stage, backstage can still be rotten.  If the Golden Globes were a rotting apple, I

What to know about planters and flowerpots for your plants

When it comes to buying pots for your plants, you have to think like Goldilocks. The container you choose should be just the right size. “You don’t want to oversize the pot for the plant,” said Lou Coy of Boyle Heights shop Latinx With Plants. “People say that when you repot a plant you should put it in a really big pot so that it will encourage it to grow. That’s actually not true, I find. If you put it in a pot that’s too large, it’s going to take longer to drain and dry out, and you risk drowning the plant.” Related links Learn how to grow tomatoes with the Garden Party newsletter Spring is an ideal time for repotting plants, as some begin to produce new growth after a dormant winter.

My kids started earning money during the pandemic, and we found the perfect account to let their cash grow tax-free

Summary List PlacementDuring the pandemic, my 3- and 5-year-old sons started earning money while being bound to our neighborhood. Between an Instagram ad here and a socially-distanced lemonade stand there, they've each brought in around $600 of earned income.  At first, I put their money into a high-yield savings account. But after investigating the other options available for their earned funds, I discovered the holy grail of children's accounts: the custodial Roth IRA.  What is a custodial Roth IRA? The custodial/minor/child Roth IRA has the same setup as an adult Roth IRA, a tax-advantaged retirement account, except it's managed by an adult (does not have to be a parent) on behalf of the minor until they are older. The age it transfers to the child varies by state. It is subject to t...

Why wearing tighty-whities can lower your sperm count

Summary List PlacementFollowing is a transcript of the video. Narrator: Boxer shorts were introduced in the 1920s for, well, boxers. The underwear was loose around the legs, giving boxers the freedom they needed. Then, about a decade later, briefs came into the world. Offering a sleeker, tighter-fitting option, and also launching into effect that age-old question: Boxers or briefs? And it turns out, there might be a clear winner after all. Yes, wearing tighty-whities can lower your sperm count. You read that right: Wearing tight underwear can lower your sperm count.
