The Nintendo Games That Best Describe President Trump’s Cabinet Members

Remember when you were just a wee human, when a simple game like Super Mario Bros. could distract and amuse you for hours and the White House wasn’t a daily s**t show?

This administration really has become a challenge to describe, so let’s do it using something we actually like: Nintendo games. 

We perused our collection and tried to find the Nintendo games that would be the best fit for the members of Donald Trump’s cabinet.

There are two schools of thought when it comes to ordering a cocktail: You can keep it simple and affordable with well drinks or go for more complicated and pricier ones with egg whites, liqueurs, and bitters in them. 

Jordan and Ashley Garrett fall into the latter category.

After noticing their love for craft cocktails was seriously impacting their budget, though, the duo wanted to find a store that sold all the necessary tools to make their favorite drinks at home.

Unable to find what they were looking for, the Garretts founded the Bar Cartist in 2016 with the hope of being a one-stop shop for fellow cocktail connoisseurs, stocking everything from glasses, to strainers, to actual bar carts.

Not only is each piece built to last, they’re nice enough that you’ll want to show them off to your guests. Best 0f all, the Bar Cartist makes it possible to set up a fully stocked bar without completely draining your budget. Most accessories cost less than $50, while the bar carts cost on average about $300.

TV ads thanking Republicans for repealing Obamacare aired hours after the bill was abandoned

Two of the biggest news stories collided through the medium of television on Friday evening, as Americans watched the collapse of the American Health Care Act and their favorite NCAA teams play in the Sweet 16.

Commercials thanking Republicans for repealing Obamacare aired near several conservative-leaning television markets – hours after the GOP’s Obamacare replacement, the American Health Care Act, was abandoned.

The American Action Network, a center-right advocacy group, purchased airtime for advertisements that encouraged viewers to contact their representatives, and thank them for their work in repealing former President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act, according to Deadspin. However, the GOP failed to repeal Obamacare on Friday afternoon, having been forced to pull the bill after falling short on votes in the House of Representatives.

“Republicans are keeping their promise, with a new plan for better health care,” one of the advertisements said. “Thank [California] Congressman Darrell Issa for keeping his promise and replacing the Affordable Care Act with the better healthcare you deserve.”

As of Friday evening, American Action Network had uploaded the ads for 11 lawmakers on its YouTube account. Similar ads ran for Rep. David Valadao of Fresno, California, and Rep. David Young of Des Moines, Iowa.

Ask HN: How can you frequently post to HN and also be a very successful person?

I’ve recently been digging into some of the reasons for my procrastination and inability to consistently do “deep work”. My participation in HN conversations intuitively feels like a distraction that’s holding me back, but that can’t be the whole story. After all, there are plenty of members of this community who engage very frequently, yet are also at the top of their respective fields in the “real world” – e.g. tptacek, patio11, Animats, and grellas.

So, how does one both stay engaged in this community and prevent it from distracting and derailing your real work?

China’s Baidu expands in Silicon Valley


Chinese search giant Baidu is expanding its Silicon Valley footprint with a new office in Sunnyvale specifically for autonomous driving and AI research, the company announced today.

With this expansion, company president and ex-Microsoft executive Ya-qin Zhang is taking on an additional title: chairman of Baidu USA.

The company’s U.S. presence in part functions as a recruiting tool for computer scientists from top schools and startups. Baidu is so eager to bring AI talent to China that they’re reportedly offering scientists 15 percent raises to relocate there.

However Baidu’s research team was recently dealt a noteworthy blow; Andrew Ng, the company’s chief scientist who joined from Google in 2014, is leaving the company.
