Russians Are Miserable And Brazilians Love To Smile: What Selfies Reveal About Cultural Stereotypes
"Selfies are an interesting thing to study right now. Are they just a fad, or do they represent a substantial new trend of how we create and share photos? Are they a means of self-expression, a tool of self-promotion, or a cry for attention? And are there any cultural differences in the way people in different countries take selfies?"

It’s teeny here but clicking through takes you to our Infographic of the Day: The business of getting high. Some pro-tips:

Not all Markets are Created Equal. Alaska’s weed has  been legal for 10 years, but before you open a dispensary in downtown  Anchorage, consider this: There’s no state law governing retail  marijuana businesses. Compare that to Colorado where you can plunk down  $7,500 at the Department of Revenue and apply for a Type 1 MMC license,  permitting you to operate a medical marijuana center serving up to 300  patients. Prison or paperwork? You make the call.
 Don’t Hold Out for Free Checking. That first buyer may come  easily, but don’t assume the same goes for processing his credit card.  National banks like Wells Fargo have turned away marijuana businesses,  which are still considered illegal under federal law. That makes simple  business processes like a checking account, corporate credit cards or a  merchant services account costly, time-consuming challenges. Lucky for  you, there are smaller, local banks eager to win business in a growing  industry.
 Tax  Laws. When tax time comes around, you’ll have to skip all  of those normal business expenses. The bean-counters at the Internal  Revenue Service will be following guidance under Section 280E of the tax code:  No business deductions for trafficking in controlled substances. That  means medical marijuana operations can expect to pay 50% to 200% more in  taxes than other businesses (but don’t worry too much: the fat margins  the report uncovered, especially on the grow side, should help ease the  blow.)
