How a Swedish saxophonist built Kobalt, the world’s next music unicorn

You may not have heard of Kobalt before, but you probably engage with the music it oversees every day, if not almost every hour. Combining a technology platform to better track ownership rights and royalties of songs with a new approach to representing musicians in their careers, Kobalt has risen from the ashes of the 2000 dot-com bubble to become a major player in the streaming music era. It is the leading alternative to incumbent music publishers (who represent songwriters) and is building a new model record label for the growing “middle class’ of musicians around the world who are stars within niche audiences.

Having predicted music’s digital upheaval early, Kobalt has taken off as streaming music has gone mainstream across the US, Europe, and East Asia. In the final quarter of last year, it represented the artists behind 38 of the top 100 songs on U.S. radio.

Along the way, it has secured more than $200 million in venture funding from investors like GV, Balderton, and Michael [...]  read more

Why These Praying Mantises Are Wearing Itty-Bitty 3D Glasses

It’s easy to forget that the world is not as it seems. We humans are equipped with a particular set of senses that give us particular insight into the world—we see in visible light, for instance, not infrared, and we see in 3D, not 2D. Indeed, 3D vision is so core to our being that we forget how powerful it is, and how it’s not necessarily a given in the animal kingdom. Because get this: While many insects may see in 3D, experiments so far have only been able to show that for one insect, and that is the praying mantis.

To dive deeper into how the praying mantis’ neurobiology pieces together a 3D model of prey, researchers at Newcastle University devised what may be the greatest experiment in the history of biology: They stuck itty-bitty 3D glasses to a mantis’ face, then showed the insect movies. What they found is that the praying mantis’ 3D vision may not be all that different from that of mammals. The findings could even inspire robots that navigate the world like the mantises—save for grabbing prey with spiky arms and decapitating them. Safety first, after all.

Back to school: The best gaming PCs and accessories

ASUS ROG STRIX GL12

asus

It’s not hard to find gaming desktops these days, but finding one that’s been reliably overclocked out of the box is far rarer. The ASUS ROG STRIX GL12 sports Intel’s Core i7-9900K running beyond 5GHz, paired together with NVIDIA’s cream of the crop RTX 2080 Ti graphics card. There’s also a unique RAID configuration for SSDs, for when you really need a speed boost. It’s a solid investment if you’re hoping to play the next four year’s worth of triple-A games in 4K or just want a machine that’s powerful enough to support your budding game-streaming career. As a bonus, it looks like it’s survived a few scuffles with ninjas.

M4, dagli scavi spunta una necropoli. C’è anche un misterioso cavallo

Ritrovati oltre 250 scheletri di fronte alla Basilica di San Vittore al Corpo. Secondo gli archeologi, è «il primo caso di sepoltura equina rinvenuta a Milano» | Corriere Tv

I lavori per la realizzazione della nuova linea 4 della metropolitana hanno portato alla luce una necropoli con oltre 250 scheletri in via San Vittore. Tra i resti ritrovati c’è anche quello di un cavallo che secondo gli archeologi è «il primo caso di sepoltura equina rinvenuta a Milano». Probabilmente il cavallo è appartenuto a un personaggio importante.

Liverpool vs Norwich live stream: how to watch today’s Premier League online from anywhere

The English Premier League has made its triumphant return today, with European Champions first up. Liverpool will be out to finally end their three decade wait for a league title this term. They’ll be keen to make a good start today at home, but face a newly promoted Norwich City side who won’t lack confidence, having won the Championship by five clear points last season. Check out our guide below on how to obtain a Liverpool vs Norwich live stream in the Premier League opener – regardless of where you are in the world.

Liverpool’s pre-season preparations haven’t been ideal  – a fair chunk of their expected starting eleven have been involved in this summer’s African Cup of Nations and the Copa America, meaning their deadly front three of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane have had little game time.
