THE ROCKET OF THE FIRST ORDER
While different rockets look alike, all have a cone-shaped nose at the top and a big tube holding fuel and the rest of the propulsion system underneath. However, you don't need to set your rocket up that way to fly. We know this because the first modern one looked very different. %in 1926, a rocket called Nell blasted off from a Massachusetts farm%. While it wasn't bound for space, it introduced many of the fundamentals of rocket science that would ultimately get us into orbit and beyond. Nell was by no means the first rocket to ever launch.

How Uncertainty Can Impair Our Ability to Make Rational Decisions

How Designers Engineer Luck Into Video Games
On Sept. 16, 2007, a Japanese YouTuber who goes by the handle “Computing Aesthetic” uploaded a forty-eight-second-long video with the deafening title, “ULTRA MEGA SUPER LUCKY SHOT.” The video shows a high-scoring shot in Peggle, a vastly popular video game, loosely based on Japanese pachinko machines, in which a ball bearing clatters down the screen, accruing points as it bounces through a crowd of candy-colored pegs, which disappear shortly after being touched; more bounces, more points. Although Peggle involves some skill—before firing the ball, the player must carefully aim the launcher that dangles at the top of the screen—you are principally at the mercy of the luck of the bounce. In Computing Aesthetic’s footage, the points pile up as the ball bounces fortuitously between pegs. To underscore the seemingly miraculous shot, Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” blares euphorically until, in the video’s final moments, the ball bearing sinks into the bucket at the base of the screen and the words “FEVER SCORE” flash onscreen. The description on the video, which has been watched nearly a quarter of a million times, reads, “I couldn’t balieve this when it happened!!!!!!!!!”

Why the future of restaurants runs through the grocery store
It’s Friday night and, judging from the dejected slump of a quartet of would-be diners outside of the legendary Una Pizza Napoletana on the Lower East Side, there are no tables to be had. Around the corner, a similar scene plays out at Nom Wah, the century-old dim sum restaurant on the bend of a crooked street in Chinatown. A few blocks north, at the Momofuku Noodle Bar, the hungry gaze at the eating through a plate glass window. Everything everywhere is booked all at once.
The Power of Growth Mindset: Unleashing Students' Potential for Lifelong Learning
