By Katherine KorneiJul. 25, 2018 , 9:00 AM PORTLAND, OREGON, AND PHOENIX—Joanna Harper swallowed a few pills in late August 2004, a day after running in the Hood to Coast relay race between Oregon's highest mountain and the Pacific Ocean. They delivered a small dose of estrogen and a testosterone blocker and set in motion changes that Harper, who was designated male at birth and raised as a boy, had imagined since childhood. Harper's timing was deliberate—the 47-year-old nationally ranked runner wanted one more race before disrupting her hormones because she knew she'd never run as fast again. The testosterone that courses through a man's body after puberty triggers and maintains a slew of physical changes: Men, whose levels of the hormone are usually some 10 to 15 times those of women, typically have larger muscles, denser bones, and higher fractions of lean body mass than women. That hormone-fueled transformation confers certain athletic advantages, and men on average … [Read more...] about This scientist is racing to discover how gender transitions alter athletic performance—including her own

caption Avoid name-dropping. source Strelka/Flickr There are (unfortunately) lots of ways to turn people off, both online and in person. In fact, people can get turned off within seconds of meeting you, virtually or IRL. Some of those turn-offs, listed below, include having too many Facebook friends and acting too nice. There are plenty of ways to turn people off. In fact, most of them don’t require much effort. Sometimes, all it takes is one look at your social media activity (so many pictures of your baby niece!) or a casual in-person introduction (did you really need to mention that one time you almost met Beyoncé?). We’ve rounded up some of the most common social turn-offs, online and in person, as well as how to avoid them. Read on and see which ones you’ve been guilty of.

Not all of us can make a living as professional gamers in the Overwatch League. But Justin Choy’s gig may be the next best thing. He’s the content marketing manager in charge of videos and social media for Gen.G, the esports organization that operates multiple teams — such as the Seoul Dynasty, one of the franchises in Activision Blizzard’s new Overwatch League. It’s the kind of job that didn’t exist a generation ago, and the 28-year-old Choy is one of the few people who could do something like this, according to his boss, Arnold Hur, chief growth officer at Gen.G, which was formerly known as KSV eSports. As esports grows from $906 million in 2018 to $1.65 billion by 2021 (according to market researcher Newzoo), new kinds of jobs are being born in its ecosystem. I think of it as the Leisure Economy, where we all will eventually get paid to play games. Besides people like Choy and Hur, the Leisure Economy already includes people like esports … [Read more...] about As pro gaming takes off, so do esports careers
Over the past year, it seems, more and more start-ups, venture capital firms and other types of private investment funds have been announcing publicly that they’re looking to raise money. Maybe we’re missing something here, but we thought that security laws forbid you from publicly soliciting funds — a way of protecting unsophisticated investors from being duped. The latest example comes from today’s VentureWire, which requires a subscription. We read that San Jose’s Applied Microstructures Inc., which develops and designs nanotechnology deposition equipment, says it plans to raise $8 million in a second venture capital round to develop new products. Jeffrey D. Chinn, founder, president and chief executive of Applied Microstructures, tells VentureWire that the company has a dozen customers, including big names like Hewlett-Packard and Agilent. He said the company will: … start approaching venture capital firms in the first quarter of 2005 and will … [Read more...] about How much can you say when you raise private money?
