Verge ESP returns from our hiatus, and we want to talk about drugs. From the glamorized torch songs of Lana Del Rey to The Weeknd's chart-topping cocaine anthem, there are several wildly different stories we tell ourselves about who does drugs, why they do them, and whether or not they "have a problem." And when drug abuse is so frequently coupled with mental disorders like depression and anxiety, how can we treat one without taking the other just as seriously? Plus, we remember neurologist and author Oliver Sacks, whose remarkable, often surreal, and necessary reporting changed the way we thought about our brains.

Rand — the person, not the app — also felt the need to explain to the world how they might conduct a search in the app store, which sort of rubbed me the wrong way, as a person who has been taking logical procedural action to complete everyday tasks for much of her life. Take a selfie with me on our new app! Download it by searching "Rand Paul 2016" on the App Store and Google Play. Yes, in the story of my relationship with Rand Paul, his decision to release this app is not exactly a high point.
Water cooling has traditionally been an exotic extra that gamers would append to their rigs to enhance their cooling setups, on the one hand, and to accredit themselves as hardcore enthusiasts, on the other. Forget MSI and its blinged-out WASD keys, the new benchmark for laptop gaming bragging rights is having your own radiator and pump combo. The Asus GX700 is still mostly a mystery at this point.

U.S. investors have weathered over two weeks of unusually wide-swinging trade that has left the S&P 500 with its worst monthly drop in three years and a loss of 8.5 percent from an all-time high in May. It's market volatility, it's nervousness, it's an inability to call the direction of the market," said Jake Dollarhide, chief executive officer of Longbow Asset Management in Tulsa, Oklahoma. U.S. labor markets were tight enough to fuel small wage gains in some professions in recent weeks, though some companies already felt a chill from an economic slowdown in China, the Fed said.

Boeing Co delivered 14 of its 787 Dreamliners in August, exceeding for the second straight month its 10-a-month target and suggesting strong financial performance later in the year, people familiar with the situation said on Wednesday.

Bond guru Bill Gross, who has long called for the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates, said on Wednesday that U.S. central bankers may have missed their window of opportunity to hike rates earlier this year and doing so now could create "self-inflicted" instability. The Fed seems intent on raising the federal funds rate at its policy meeting this month if only to prove that it can begin the journey to normalization, said Gross, who runs the $1.5 billion Janus Global Unconstrained Bond Fund . "They should, but their September meeting language must be so careful," that "one and done" is an increasing possibility, Gross said.
