Why do so many of us have a tough time saving money? There are a couple of very obvious -- and popular -- responses: unequal wealth distribution, stagnant wages, and student-aid debt that's shackling an entire generation of college graduates.

Without taking anything away from those legitimate causes, we often ignore the thing we have the most control over: our own spending. It feels good to blame others. It is psychologically depleting to admit our own mistakes. So we over-emphasize the things out of our control, and ignore those within it.

That's a shame, because the very act of owning

mistakes can lead to powerful changes down the road. That's why I want to highlight the one trick that's helped my family save the most money over time: setting aside one month per year where we pay for (almost) everything in cash -- and tracking those expenses.

Google launched a new YouTube design nearly a year ago, but if you’ve been using Edge, Safari, or Firefox then you’ve probably wondered why YouTube is loading so slowly. Mozilla program manager Chris Peterson has highlighted the issue this week, and it’s not your alternative browser that’s to blame. Google’s redesign still relies on a deprecated shadow API that’s only implemented in Chrome, making other browsers render YouTube five times slower.

One of the first and best-known photo-sharing services, Flickr, has been bought by the independent image-hosting firm SmugMug, as Verizon begins the breakup of Yahoo.

The deal, terms of which have not been disclosed, sees Flickr – with its tens of billions of photos and 75 million users – become part of a similar family-run service in SmugMug.

The Silicon Valley firm, founded by a father and son team in 2002 without the help of venture capital or outside investment, says it intends for Flickr to “continue to operate separately, just as it has been”. SmugMug said no changes would be made

Get out your binoculars and your passports — that is, if you want to catch the longest total lunar eclipse of our lifetimes. Well, at least, of the century. On Friday, the celestial event will turn the moon from its normal pearly white into a beguiling red orange for more than 100 minutes, NASA says. But the bad news? It won’t be visible from North America. If you want to catch sight of this historic (and likely stunning) event, you’ll need to be in the Middle East, south or eastern Africa, or western and southeast Asia and India. And even then, you’ll have to hope that the weather holds.

Folks in those regions will actually be able to see the totality of the lunar eclipse — that is to say that for about an hour and 42 minutes, they’ll be able to see the blood red moon. However, the entire lunar eclipse, which begins when the moon moves through the Earth’s stratosphere, will be longer still at six hours and 13 minutes.

NBA league officials don’t believe open playoff seeding -- that is, seeding the top 16 teams in the playoffs regardless of conference -- is important enough to offset the added travel it would create for Eastern Conference teams. (Along those lines, be sure to check out some really interesting research from Sebastian Pycior at Nylon Calculus on how adopting the 2-3-2 format would counteract those travel impacts. You may remember that I recently called for using 2-3-2 for this purpose -- I had no idea it would save that much travel.)

There’s no question the NBA could figure out how to switch

Dreams can be fuzzy, and not just because they can be hard to remember. They’re hard to study, too. Ever since Sigmund Freud hypothesized that daytime experiences influence the content of our dreams, psychologists and neuroscientists have grappled with how our dreams connect to our waking lives. And new research suggests there’s a scientific way to associate dreams with specific periods of waking time.

According to a paper published June 4 in the journal Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, scientists found that they can use certain biomarkers in people who are dreaming to identify

when they formed the memories that made up the contents of their dreams. To figure this out, researchers recorded the brainwaves of 20 students with an electroencephalograph throughout several nights of sleep. They woke the students up during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep and slow wave sleep and asked them to report on what they were dreaming. They then matched the contents of the dreams to 10 days of personal diaries the students kept during the previous days — while they were awake, of course.

New findings, published in the journal Astrobiology, suggest that large craters are the prime locations in which to find the building blocks of life on Saturn's largest moon, Titan.

Titan is an icy expanse covered by organic molecules, with liquid methane lakes enshrouded by a thick, hazy atmosphere of nitrogen and methane that begs the question: why isn't there life on this strangely Earth-like world? Perhaps it is the balmy -179 degrees Celsius (-300 degrees Fahrenheit) temperature on the surface that would likely prevent any biochemical reactions from taking place. But is there any pla

Instagram's testing a couple of new options which will give users more control over who can see their content, both of which could have varying uses and benefits.

The first is a new way to remove followers from public accounts.

The option makes it a little easier to restrict certain users from seeing your Instagram content. Of course, if your posts are public they could still look you up, but it makes it more of an effort, and as users are not notified when they've been removed in this way, it'll likely result in them effectively being deleted from your audience.

He played a vital role in Real Madrid's 2 La Liga titles (2011-2012, 2016-2017), 4 UEFA Champions League (2013-2014, 2015-2016, 2016-2017, 2017-2018), 3 FIFA Club World Cup (2014, 2016, 2017) and 2 Copa del Rey (2010-2011, 2013-2014).

It didn't take long for Mars to become a potentially habitable world, a new study suggests.

The planet-formation process generates a lot of heat, so rocky worlds such as Mars and Earth are covered by oceans of molten rock shortly after they form. Life as we know it cannot get a foothold until these oceans freeze into a crust — and this apparently happened quite early on the Red Planet, the new study reports.
