Out in the real world news is happening and here are the highlights.

Magic mushrooms can treat depression

The active ingredient in magic mushrooms, psilocybin, has long been suspected of having therapeutic effects, but recent medical trials in the U.S. have brought in reassuring new evidence confirming this hypothesis. 80 percent of cancer patients, understandably depressed by their condition, were said to have shown significant reductions to anxiety and depression in 80, with effects that lasted up to seven months from a single dose and showed very few harmful side effects. – New York Times

Australian high schoolers make Martin Shkreli HIV medicine from scratch

Pharma bro, Martin Shkreli, made headlines last year after buying the patent for life-saving HIV drug, Daraprim, and hiking the price up from $13.50 per tablet to $750. Well, some high schoolers in Australia managed to synthesize it themselves with guidance from their science teacher, using less-toxic materials than those that are usually used in the production process, and could sell it at a price of $2 per pill, showing up Shkreli for the heartless bastard that he is. – The Guardian

NBA star Imam Shumpert would turn down White House invite from Trump

Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard, Imam Shumpert, says that he would turn down an invitation from Donald Trump to visit the White House, which is pretty understandable considering all the overtly racist comments he made throughout his year-and-a-half on the campaign trail. His teammates, LeBron James and J.R. Smith, also campaigned for Hillary Clinton in Ohio, and will hopefully share similar sentiments. He might have won, but it doesn't mean that decent people need to swallow their morals and embrace him. The resistance starts now. – Yahoo News

Charles Barkley says Golden State play "little girly basketball"

11-time NBA all-star, Charles Barkley, has continued to antagonize the Golden State Warriors, telling the team that they play "little girly basketball." Apparently "girl basketball" is the one where you have to "outscore people." If you're struggling to read sense in his remarks, that's probably a sign that there isn't any. – Washington Post
