Penny-stock investment sites, for example, are full of disclaimers. The general message is this: Avoid such investments unless you don’t mind losing virtually all your money. That’s not to say blue chips can’t be extraordinarily risky too, as investors in General Motors have witnessed over the past few years. But ethical promoters of penny stocks are pretty blatant about their likelihood of becoming nearly worthless.

“We hope this is a moment where Conversation AI goes from being ‘this is interesting’ to a place where everyone can start engaging and leveraging these models to improve discussion,” says Conversation AI product manager CJ Adams. For anyone trying to rein in the comments on a news site or social media, Adams says, “the options have been upvotes, downvotes, turning off comments altogether or manually moderating. This gives them a new option: Take a bunch of collective intelligence—that will keep getting better over time—about what toxic comments people have said would make them leave, and use that information to help your community’s discussions.”
Snake Slider is a cross between a sliding-tile puzzle and the old “Snakes” game where you eat things and get longer and longer without running into yourself. In this case, you don’t have to worry about running into yourself, but you are maneuvering a snake around inside a very restrictive space. There’s a green snake and a number of yellow snakes in each “basket,” and your goal is to get the green snake out the exit. You can slide any snake in any direction, and they’ll just follow whatever path you take. In later levels, though, it’s not just a matter of moving the yellow snakes out of the way: there are apples which make a snake grow, mushrooms which make them shrink, and keys which will unlock doors. The trick with those is that you can only eat them with the snake’s mouth, so it matters which direction you’re facing. There are even blocks which can be pushed out of the way (but you can only push one at a time).
