When a dictator dies, it leaves some huge shoes to fill. It's 1953 and Joesph Stalin has died. The Communist Party is in disarray as to what to do about filling the newly vacant position — and they go about in the most inefficient way possible. The Death of Stalin takes the stereotype of the unwieldy Communist bureaucracy to its blackly comedic extreme. Starring Steve Buscemi and Jeffrey Tambor, the movie releases in September 2017.
Every year at the Bonneville Salt Flats, a group of daredevils gathers to do one thing — go as fast as possible on anything with wheels. Motorcycles, cars, and even jet-powered monsters that have more in common with aircraft than anything on road spend one week in the desert trying to break records. Director Skylar Nielsen talks to these speed freaks about what keeps them coming back.
Protein bars usually contain as much sugar as a doughnut and have an ingredient list that requires a doctorate to pronounce. RXBARs are different. With no more than eight ingredients, each bar contains only real, whole foods and delivers 12g of quality protein without any added sugar. At the core of every bar is a mixture of egg whites, fruits, and nuts — which they print right on the front of the package — and each of their 12 flavors are gluten-, soy-, and dairy-free. Our favorites are Chocolate Sea Salt, Blueberry, and Peanut Butter, but we recommend starting with the best seller pack, which comes with six of their top selling flavors. Keep a few of these in your gym bag, office drawer, and kitchen pantry for when you need a snack and resist the urge to scarf a candy bar.

An artificial island, a Buddist guru, endangered birds, and the UN building — New York City's U Thant Island has a very interesting history.

Vox takes a trip down the East RIver to U Thant, and learns a little about canoeing in the process.
