JASON'S PICK - WINNER
One Tweet Just Cost A Company One Billion Dollars
Kylie Jenner has been a mover and shaker in the fashion world for ages, and now she's shaken up the financial market -- by tanking Snapchat's stock with a single message.
It could be a coincidence, but the teen-friendly social media site saw its value drop by more than $1.3 billion -- with a "B" -- after Kylie hinted she was breaking up with it. She tweeted, "Sooo does anyone else not open Snapchat anymore? Or is it just me… Ugh this is so sad." The tweet earned nearly 300,000 likes -- none of them from execs at Snapchat, who lost a fortune.

SMOKING WEED IS GOOD FOR YOUR LIVER
A surprising new study has found that marijuana use may actually protect your liver.
Researchers found that people who regularly drink alcohol and also smoke weed have a significantly less risk of liver disease than those who drink without lighting up.
It seems weed has chemicals that might reduce inflammation of the liver, which ends up reducing long-term damage.
Which means, two bad habits could actually be better than just one. (BGR)
Nevertheless, you persisted …
If you're trying to lose weight, exercise more, or stick to any goal, there's one word you can use to keep you on track. According to psychologist and life coach Stanley Hibbs, the only word you need for success is: Nevertheless.
"I call it inoculating yourself against excuse-itis," Hibbs told Today. "'Nevertheless' allows us to talk back to, refute and dispute our excuses, and then propels us towards positive action."
For example: "It's cold out and I don't feel like running today. Nevertheless, it's important -- so I'm going to do it anyway" or "I've had a terrible day and just want some ice cream. Nevertheless, I'll find a better way to deal with my feelings."
