The Procrastinator (some) Times Sunday 28th of June Edition

Hello friends summer is officially here and with it many reasons to celebrate, being the most immediate one the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States of America of legalizing gay marriage nationwide.

Also in our News section we feature a Bloomberg article that explains the massiveness of the crisis in Venezuela with a small example: Why the iPhone 6 Costs $47,678 in Venezuela? In our Science & Technology section a group of scientists tricked some brains to demonstrate that they actually doesn't suck at passwords.

In our Design, Business & Innovation we share the story of the Californian woman, who developed an innovative phone app, that have helped to feed almost 600,000 homeless people. Also Nicola Kemp shares in Marketing Magazine the six trends that will define the next decade of social media, prepare to see a shift from unfettered narcissism globally (finally!) to a real source of empowerment. And Valerie Casey, CPO of Samsung's Global Innovation Center, explains why open platform is the future of the Internet of Things.

Our Culture & Entertainment section features articles from Open Culture and Critical Theory on how commuters in Moscow can download free eBooks of Russian classics in the Metro, how you can understand phenomenology thanks to the iconic Muppets song “Mahna Mahna,” (with English subtitles), and why the neuroscience in Pixar's Inside Out is surprisingly accurate.

Finally this edition of In Dog We Trust by La Guía del Perro shares with us the best dog related shows on TV, Rambo the puppy, and believe it or not, some flying dogs!

And as this weekend is all about pride, here's this shameless plug as Minimaps -our sister project- just turned 3 months and has released the gayest minimap so far: Folky, Colourful, Happy Ciudad de México, have a look.

Happy summery and meaningful procrastination (!) and see you all here in a month and remember to keep in touch in @Pro_Sometimes (a month is a long time, we will miss you!)
