Today we have three captivating stories that we'll dive into. So without further ado, let's get started. The beef between Terrence Howard and Neil deGrasse Tyson our first story takes us into the world of mathematics and physics, where actor Terrence Howard and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson find themselves embroiled in a public disagreement. This all started with Howard's unconventional beliefs, including the idea that one times one equals two. Neil degrasse Tyson, being a respected scientist and mathematician, took the opportunity to respond to these claims on his platform, startalk. In a recently released video, degrasse Tyson not only explained his interaction with Howard, but also addressed the broader topic of expertise and the importance of peer review. In essence, degrasse Tyson emphasized that personal research and interests in a topic do not automatically make one an expert. He showcased the Dunning Kruger effect and the necessity of accurate self assessment. To get the full story and understand the intricacies of this beef, be sure to watch Neil degrasse Tyson's video on his podcast and YouTube show startalk. It's an enlightening exploration of the scientific process and the importance of humility in the pursuit of knowledge. We'll be right back after these messages. [00:02:04] Speaker C: Hey, everybody, just wanted to talk about Dream a pickleball story, the first major documentary about pickleball from a Hollywood studio, and it is premiering at the San Francisco Film Festival as we speak.

In a unanimous verdict, the court preserved access to my Fabrizio, a medication widely used in abortions. The ruling states that the abortion opponents lack the legal standing to challenge the FDA's approval and regulation of the drug. This decision is the first major abortion ruling since the conservative justices overturned ruby way two years ago. It brings relief to many in the medical community and those advocating for reproductive rights. However, it's important to note that this ruling is narrow in its scope, addressing the legal issue of standing rather than broader judgments on the FDA's actions or the drug safety. To understand the implications of this decision and hear reactions from both President Joe Biden and pro life advocates, let's take a deeper dive into this significant news article on our STM Daily News log. Debunking the myths California's new minimum wage law and its real impact on fast food jobs and our final story takes us to California, where a controversial claim has emerged regarding the state's minimum wage law and its alleged impact on the fast food industry. The claim suggests that the minimum wage increase has led to massive job losses and business struggles. However, this claim has been debunked by data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Federal Reserve. In fact, employment in California's fast food industry has increased since the law was enacted. The claim of massive job losses fails to hold up to scrutiny. When considering accurate, seasonally adjusted data, it's essential to consider the broader economic context and other factors impacting the fast food industry, such as food cost, inflation and debt burdens from private equity ownership. To get the complete picture and understand the real impact of California's minimum wage law on the fast food industry, head to our STM daily news blog, where we delve deeper into this story. And there you have it, a wrap up of the stories we covered on our STM daily news blog. From the beef between Terrence Howard and Neil deGrasse Tyson, to the unanimous Supreme Court decision on abortion medication and the debunking of myths surrounding California's minimum wage law, we hope you found these stories informative and thought provoking. Make sure to visit our STM daily news blog for the full articles and to stay updated on all the latest news stories. And remember, knowledge is power, so keep seeking it, sharing it, and thriving in this dynamic world. As always, I'm Rod Washington, signing off with a friendly reminder to keep your minds open, your hearts kind, and your curiosity alive. Have a fantastic day, everyone.
