READ THIS NOW I'm not a Falcons fan and definitely not a Patriots fan (go Giants!), but I'm really looking forward to this year's Super Bowl more than the past few. Why? Because with all the negativity around us – mostly things we cannot control or haven't yet figured out how to control – I could really use a few hours to detach myself from the intensified news cycle. With ongoing wars, refugees stranded in all parts of the world, and ongoing political chaos, we could all use a break from negativity. Come Monday, we'll all get back to figuring out how to save humanity from itself. — Ehab Zahriyeh, your newsletter editor
This robo-cafe can make a mean latte, but what about your hipster barista?
Cafe X is the first robotic cafe in the United States. Located in downtown San Francisco, it consists of a robotic arm shuffling cups of coffee back and forth behind a large pane of glass. Two automated coffee machines in the back grind coffee, pull espresso shots and steam milk. The robot serves up a selection of artisanal coffee beans from local roasters for a good price.
The company's founder and CEO Henry Hu insists he isn't looking to put baristas out of their jobs. Like many entrepreneurs in the field of automation, he likes to say his technology will enable people to do more useful things with their time. But his invention is saving money by cutting people out. Each Cafe X location requires only one human present to administer the machine, assist customers on orders and educate them on the espresso options. Hu guesses that each Cafe X system can make up to 120 drinks an hour.

Front-load your IRA for a $15,000 boost by 2027. “If you have $5,500—from a bonus or overstuffed emergency fund—add it to your IRA now, rather than waiting until the contribution deadline.” — Arielle O’Shea, staff writer at NerdWallet
Here's how to stretch $50 into a semi-legit Super Bowl party
It's game time! Are you ready to go that extra yard and host a Super Bowl party? If you're worried about funds, follow this $50 play-by-play:
Food: Buy in bulk, and spend no more than $25 on snacks. Potluck apps and entrees. Your buddies wouldn't mind showing off their latest culinary skills.
Drinks: BYOB is your friend. Let partygoers know you'll serve a signature cocktail, but they should bring along their own libations to supplement the spread. For your "signature cocktail," spend no more than $20, and mix one palatable yet inexpensive liquor with a juice – think rum punch or a gin bucket.
Other: You'll have $5 left. Raffle it off to a non-Patriots fan. (They've already won enough.)
This is your last chance to visit these places before they irreversibly change

Some 70% of visitors to the Great Barrier Reef in 2015 were spurred by "last-chance tourism," one study found. Travelers wanted to see the aquatic marvel before it further succumbs to coral bleaching induced by rising global temperatures.
Your window of opportunity to witness several of the world's marvels is narrowing. In addition to the Reef, consider a salty swim in the receding Dead Sea, some R&R or nightlife in the sinking Maldives, or a picturesque hike in the melting ice of Montana’s Glacier National Park and Alberta’s Athabasca Glacier.
Severe weather patterns are affecting these gems. We can hope initiatives prevent total wipeout, but their current beauty and stability may never be the same. There is literally no time like the present.
Introducing another new podcast: Forbes Under 30
In this premiere episode, Martellus Bennett, the hulking and talented tight-end of the New England Patriots, is way more than a football player. Off the gridiron, Bennett, known for his lack of pretense, is a creator at heart. In this conversation, discover his playful and artistic side and who he considered writing in for President.
“When you’re a creator, that never leaves you," he says. "You always have this urge to want to create. It’s just who you are.”
A Palestinian refugee-turned-entrepreneur: The American dream realized
At age 8, Dean Haleem arrived in Chicago's Palestinian community. He grew up mopping floors at Burger King and would eventually open his own restaurant. Chopstick Charlie’s, however, “failed miserably,” leaving Haleem $40,000 in debt at age 23.
The venture wouldn't be his last culinary endeavor. Haleem rebounded to a 20-year career in investment banking and helped his son with a $4 million restaurant opening in Portland, Maine. Haleem's contributions at the 300-seat, 60-staff eatery have brought the immigrant's entrepreneurial pursuits full circle — to profitability and a shared sweet taste of freedom, hiring his first Syrian refugee.
