The world's longest suspension bridge has opened in the Swiss Alps — and it looks terrifying

Until this summer, Japan's Kokonoe Yume was the longest suspension bridge in the world.

The newly built Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge in Switzerland just stole that title.

Measuring 1,621 feet long, it traverses the country's deepest valley in the Swiss Alps.

Check out the bridge, which officially opened on July 29, below.

Located in the Swiss Alps, the Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge connects two towns, Zermatt and Grächen.

The metal bridge swoops over the deepest valley in Switzerland, and hangs around 275 feet above ground level. The deck is just 25 inches wide. It also links to a hiking trail, cal...

I tried the software that uses AI to scan job applicants for companies like Goldman Sachs and Unilever before meeting them — and it's not as creepy as it sounds

• HireVue uses AI to analyze word choice, tone, and facial movement of job applicants who do video interviews.

• The company has raised $95 million and works with companies like Unilever and Goldman Sachs.

• I tried the software by applying to a HireVue job and discussed the results with HireVue's CTO.

If HireVue is correct, using artificial intelligence to screen job applicants is a glimpse at the future of recruiting.

Mark Newman founded HireVue in 2004 as a video interview platform. It saved recruiters time by allowing candidates to record answers to interview questions and upload them to a database where recruiters could easily compare how applicants presented themselves.

Four years ago, HireVue began the next phase of its life with the integration of AI.


I took a Tesla Model S and a Toyota Camry on the same road trip — and the ride was surprisingly similar

• I drove the Tesla Model S and a 2018 Toyota Camry SE on the same road trip on two different occasions. 

• While these cars are vastly different, road tripping in these vehicles is surprisingly similar. 

• The Camry is all-new for 2018, but it's still the same old wonderful four-door at heart.

Right up front, I don't want anyone to confuse this review with a serious comparison of the Tesla Model S P90D and the new Toyota Camry. In one corner, we have an expensive ($130,000) high-performance, all-wheel-drive electric car that's an icon of high-tech, crazy-fast, futuristic sex appeal. 


34 movies you have to see this fall — including 'Justice League,' 'It,' and 'Blade Runner 2049'

After a summer movie season that saw some hit movies but a lot of duds, Hollywood is looking for a rebound in the fall.

The fall season will have its share of blockbusters — from the anticipated “It” to "Thor: Ragnarok" and “Justice League” — but there will also be some titles mixed in that will compete for award season attention, like “Call Me By Your Name” and “Stronger.”

Here are 34 movies coming out this fall that you shouldn’t miss:

"It" - September 8

The latest adaptation of Stephen King's classic novel looks to be the most chilling yet. In it, a group of bullied kids team up to take on a monster named Pennywise (that looks like a clown) that hunts kids.

"First They Killed My Father" - September 15

Bill Gates, Richard Branson, and Sheryl Sandberg all use the same old-school organizational hack

Some of the biggest names in business use a surprisingly old school organizational and productivity trick.

Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Virgin founder Richard Branson, and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg all carry around notebooks.

Gates and Branson use their notebooks to record ideas. By keeping a pen and paper handy, these two moguls are able to keep track of and remember all the inklings that come to them throughout the day.

"I can't tell you where I'd be if I hadn't had a pen on hand to write down my ideas as soon as they came to me," Branson wrote in a blog post.

Sandberg uses her notebook as a sort of daily planner,

The 'Game of Thrones' season 7 finale will be the longest episode in the show's history

You might have to take a long nap or have a giant cup of coffee (or both) before watching the season-seven finale of "Game of Thrones" on Sunday. The finale episode of the beloved HBO series' penultimate season, called "The Dragon and the Wolf", will be a record-breaking 79 minutes and 43 seconds long. 

The sixth episode of the season, "Beyond the Wall" was 71 minutes long.

This isn't the first time "Game of Thrones" has done long episodes, but "The Dragon and the Wolf" will be the longest. The season-six finale, "The Winds of Winter," was 68 minutes long and at that point it was the longest episode in the show's history. The creators packed a lot of death (and other things) into that one, so who knows what's in store this Sunday when all of our heroes meet Cersei in King's Landing.
