The markets are hot — and not everybody is thinking clearly.Denis Doyle / Stringer / Getty ImagesLegendary finance guru Howard Marks issued a warning shot to investors Wednesday, laying out the case that markets are overheated and risks are going ignored.At one point in his sprawling, 22-page memo, the billionaire founder of Oaktree Capital Management zeros in on high-flying tech darling Netflix to explain why many investors — specifically debt investors, in this case — have lost their mind in the pursuit of ever-higher returns."The credit investors of today clearly aren’t gun-shy, leaving investment opportunities to languish at excessive yields and yield spreads," he said.In early May, Netflix issued €1.3 billion of Eurobonds, the lowest-cost debt it ever issued.The interest rate was 3.625%, the covenants were few, and the rating was single-B.

PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State University researchers have developed a way to grow algae more efficiently -- in days instead of weeks -- and make the algae more viable for several industries, including biofuels.Oil from the algae can be used as a petroleum alternative and algae also can be used as food, feed, fiber, fertilizer, pigments and pharmaceuticals.Generally, large ponds are required, and harvesting is labor intensive.Researchers have begun developing biofilm reactors to grow the algae, but the reactors aren't efficient because of pH or temperature variations or a limited supply of carbon dioxide gas.Led by graduate student Sandra Rincon and her advisor, Haluk Beyenal, professor in the Gene and Linda Voiland School of Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering, the researchers developed a unique biofilm reactor that recycles gasses and uses less water and lower light than typical reactors.The algae produced was full of the fats that make it suitable for biodiesel production and "fatter" than other biofilm reactors have produced.

Like the nearly 20,000 other attendees, I was thrilled about the prospect of Pokémon Go Fest.Pokémon Go Fest promised the ability to catch rare monsters, team up with lots of other players to tackle the new Raid Battles, and the opportunity to unlock and capture top-tier Legendary monsters, which would finally be added to the game for the occasion.As a member of the media, I was allowed in with an early batch of attendees, and we had a chance to experience the Fest before it was in full swing—before technical issues totally crippled the fun.Once inside the Fest, you’d need to walk up to any of the special PokéStops on the map and spin the disc, which then prompted you to scan the QR code that Niantic provided alongside your NFC chip-packing wristband.Just a small hitch, right?Hanke seemed uneasy at the response, and urged fans to be patient, reminding them that children were present.

Access to all of Adobe’s appsSubscriptions mean you don’t own the software you’re spending money on, you have to keep forking out every month, and if you cancel the payments, you no longer have access to those apps.What possible advantages can this scheme of things offer over just buying the programs outright?They’re self-contained programs with no ongoing charge, which you can use as little or as often as you please for a single affordable outlay.But subscribing to Adobe’s Creative Cloud may well make a lot of sense as a creative professional, especially if you use these apps day in, day out, and you look forward to the new features offered in their regular major updates.If that’s the case, you could end up making some serious savings through a monthly subscription plan.

But now live streaming of such data during matches and races is ushering in a new era of fan involvement.For the rugby stars lining up for the opening clash of Australia's annual State of Origin series in May, this was a game of firsts.Each player wore a vest under their shirt fitted with a UWB (Ultra Wide Band) device.Cameras have tracked player speed and distance in football and rugby for some time, but this doesn't tell the whole story, argues Catapult's Karl Hogan, global head of league and data partnerships.At this year's Tour De France, data from a GPS transponder installed under each saddle is being combined with external data, such as the gradient of hills and weather conditions, to provide live speed, position, distance between riders, and the composition of groups within the race, amongst other insights.Applying machine learning and predictive analytics to the data can then be used to forecast likely winners, taking into account all the many variables, from road gradient to headwind strength, humidity to relative speed.

You’ve got to write code in order to learn to be a coder.That’s the simple truth of the matter.But it’s always nice to have a helping hand guide you through the often confusing and contradictory technology used to style and illustrate webpages, which is where CSSReference.io comes in.This site is a comprehensive reference guide to the CSS properties you’re most likely to use.There are a lot of these, like the authoritative and (justifiably) respected Mozilla Developer Network.But what separates CSSReference.io from the pack is that it’s actually rather beautiful.

So how do you recapture that novelty in the follow-up movie, "Kingsman: The Golden Circle"?Goldman, who spoke to me ahead of her appearance on a panel at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, shared her thoughts on finding the "perfect villain" for "Golden Circle," the kind of tech that terrifies and interests her and the task of resurrecting a fan favorite character.The following is an edited transcript of our interview.We made a decision early on that it wasn't about going more violent or brutal.If we didn't find a villain we were equally happy with, we might not have done a sequel.The strongest villains, you can relate to what they're fighting for, it's just their methods are questionable.

Rebates and incentives can make more people buy electric cars, but there are concerns that these benefits are the only things keeping EVs in buyers' minds.California's next round of EV rebates would only continue building upon that house of cards.A bill adding another $3 billion in electric-car rebates passed the California state assembly, The Wall Street Journal reports.It will then head to the state senate before making its way to Governor Jerry Brown's desk.The bill would authorize $3 billion to be used for immediate dealership rebates, as opposed to the current system, which requires a buyer to apply and wait for a response.The bill also offers larger discounts for low-income buyers.

Rumors over the weekend suggested Amazon is hard at work on its own messaging platform to compete with the likes of Facebook, WhatsApp and maybe even workplace solutions like Slack.It’s rumored to be called Anytime and it was reported by AFTV News after Amazon began surveying customers about potential innovative features for the new service.The leak has suggested a variety of features for the service with ideas such as video and voice chat, the ability to play games with your friends and even put filters over photos within the app.Despite that, Amazon will have a lot of work ahead of it to beat the current big names in the space, considering Google Allo even struggled to make an impact when it launched last year.There's currently no word on when Anytime will be officially announced or when it will be released to the public, but considering Amazon is still surveying customers for potential features we can speculate the launch will be at the end of this year or even pushed into 2018.Here are all the features we think Amazon may be able to use to get ahead of WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.
