This private club of socially-conscious entrepreneurs bought a ski mountain in Utah for $40 million to build what has been called a ‘utopia for the millennial elite’

Powder Mountain Summit

  • Summit, a socially conscious entrepreneurial collective, bought a mountain in Utah in 2013 for $40 million.
  • The community is known for its progressive events with leaders at the forefront of their respective industries making up the attendee list.
  • Summit has begun building 28 houses on Powder Mountain as a first step toward providing a more permanent location for its followers.


On Utah’s Powder Mountain, you’ll find some of the world’s most influential individuals on what has been dubbed “the utopia of the millennial elite.”

The socially conscious entrepreneurial community Summit, founded in 2008, purchased the mountain for $40 million in 2013, adding it to its repertoire of elite meeting grounds.

The collective is known for hosting gatherings designed to cultivate the biggest and brightest ideas of the millennial generation by bringing together leaders at the forefront of their respective industries. Richard Branson and Sophia Bush count themselves among the Summit clan, and anyone wanting to join must go through an application process beforehand.

Summit, which has been described as a mix of Ted Talks and Burning Man, is taking its progressive programming to the slopes. According to a report published in The Guardian, Summit’s founders envision that the mountain will bring together its community members in a more permanent settlement. 

Powder Mountain is still under construction, but these photos give us an early peak inside the Utah utopia. Take a look.

Jim Carrey has taken his criticism of Trump to a new level with a sexually explicit drawing of the president

Jim carrey

  • Actor Jim Carrey has taken his Twitter and artistic war with President Trump to a new, sexually explicit level.
  • The latest drawing, posted to Twitter Friday, features Trump in bed with a woman who is presumably adult film star Stormy Daniels.
  • Carrey has courted controversy this week over other drawings he has posted to Twitter, including an unflattering depiction of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.


Actor Jim Carrey isn’t backing down from his criticism of President Trump — and he’s now taken it to a new level.

On Friday, Carrey tweeted a drawing that depicts Trump in bed with a woman who is presumably porn actress Stormy Daniels. Daniels has recently been at the center of a legal battle with Trump and allegedly had an affair with the president in 2006.

Carrey covered the most explicit areas of the drawing with the Presidential Seal, and included the caption “Fifty Shades of Decay.”



Trump allegedly began having an affair with Daniels in 2006 when current First Lady Melania had just given birth to their son, Barron. Daniels sued Trump earlier this month, claiming that Trump never signed a nondisclosure agreement intended to prevent her from talking about the alleged affair.

Carrey himself has been the subject of some controversy this week for other drawings he tweeted. The actor has become an unlikely political artist and activist on Twitter, and has been quite busy over the past several days.

On Saturday, Carrey tweeted an unflattering image of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders that called her Christianity into question and received backlash from conservatives, including on Fox News.



Carrey was unfazed by the criticism, telling The Young Turks in a statement that he was “so gratified by the reaction to my little drawings.”

He followed that drawing up with one that portrayed Trump as the “Wicked Witch of the West Wing.”

An Army sergeant explains why you don’t want to see the massive M777 howitzer lowered all the way down

155mm howitzer army

  • We saw an M777 howitzer lowered all the way to the ground.
  • An Army sergeant explained that the only time it’s lowered all the way is when the enemy is close.
  • “If you’re receiving contact on this howitzer, that means all your front lines are not there anymore,” he said.

FORT BLISS, Texas — At one point, as the soldiers above were showing me around the massive M777 howitzer, they lowered it all the way down so that it was parallel to the ground.

Given that the howitzer is meant for support, I was asked why and in what situation they would need to lower it that far down.

Sgt. Shaw, who has served in Iraq and Afghanistan, told me the only time it’s lowered all the way is when the enemy is close — not a good position to be in, given that the cannon is meant for support.

Shaw said his crew once took contact when he was in Afghanistan, but he understandably didn’t want to go into detail.

“If you’re receiving contact on this howitzer, that means all your front lines are not there anymore, or they’ve been able to flank the infantry,” he said.

army soldier m777 howitzer

Operated by a crew of eight to 10, the Triple 7 howitzer fires 155mm precision and non-precision munitions.

The non-precision guided munitions have a maximum range of 18.6 miles, while the Excalibur precision-guided rounds have a maximum range of 25 miles and are accurate to within 30 feet.

The howitzer can also fire up to five rounds per minute, or two rounds per minute sustained.

During one deployment to Afghanistan, Shaw said his crew fired the howitzer while lowered at the enemy eight to 10 miles away. 

So even when completely lowered, the Triple 7 still has range.

NOW WATCH: Why Russia is so involved in the Syrian Civil War

We drove a $63,000 RAM 1500 pickup truck to see why it’s part of America’s latest obsession — here’s the verdict (FCAU)

RAM 1500

  • The RAM full-size pickup is the perennial third-best-seller in the US, behind the Ford F-150 and the Chevy Silverado.
  • We spent a week with a well-appointed version of the truck.
  • And we were mighty impressed.

We certainly live in a Golden Age for luxury pickups, which are becoming America’s latest obsession. Detroit can’t sell enough of them. In the first two months of 2018, Ford has already moved 127,000 F-150s. And everything truly is better. That gas-chugging V8 on a ’78 Chevy would give you just about 160 horsepower, while a modern V8-motored pickup will top 400hp with better fuel economy. It’s also hooked up to the internet, is far more reliable, and can be had with all manner of luxurious appointments. 

Ford has revamped its segment-leading F-Series pickups, and now both Chevy/GMC and Fiat Chrysler’s RAM have followed suit. For old time’s sake, however, we jumped at the chance to sample the outgoing RAM 1500 when the carmaker flipped us the keys to a well-optioned $63,870 2018 Limited Crew Car 4×4 version of the third-best selling pickup in the USA (over half a million units in 2017).

Here’s how it went.

The RAM 1500 Limited Crew Cab 4X4 has a base price of $53,595, which is a lot higher than the stripped-down $27,000 no-frills trim level. Our “Maximum Steel Metallic” tester stickered at $63,870.

The RAM 1500 is a full-size pickup — the heart of the pickup market. These trucks have to be able to do it all, from hauling stuff to towing stuff to driving people around.

RAM pickups have a more aggressive, semi-truck-like appearance than the competition. It isn’t for everybody — but we thought it make our tester look pretty imposing.

That’s a “Tungsten Chrome” grille, by the way. Which means it isn’t shiny chrome. And it looks pretty fantastic.

Air travel has become worse than ever — and the iPhone is to blame

frustrated airport

  • Smartphones and social media make it easier for stories of disruptive airline passengers to spread.
  • While it might seem like air travelers have become more volatile, much of that perception may result from how easy it is to film and share videos of extreme incidents on social media.
  • But by increasing the number of seats in their aircraft and making them smaller, airlines aren’t helping to make flights less stressful.

It seems a day can’t pass without a story about a disruptive airline passenger going viral. 

Often, the stories are accompanied by videos filmed by other passengers. Together, they create the impression that air travel has become a circus. If your flight isn’t interrupted by a passenger climbing onto a plane’s wing or trying to open a cabin door in mid-air, you’re lucky, it seems.

But it’s difficult to tell if air travelers are acting out more, of if social media makes the most extreme examples of misbehavior easier to share. The answer probably involves both.

Social media makes it easier to record disruptive behavior

“I don’t think the problem is increasing. I think that awareness of the problem is increasing,” Airways senior business analyst Vinay Bhaskara told Business Insider.

“I think the key difference in today’s world is that information if something goes wrong spreads in a way that it didn’t previously,” he said.

Before, a disruptive passenger “was going to be, at most, local news,” Bhaskara said. Today, that passenger becomes national news if the outburst has enough shock value.

Airlines have limited control over their customers’ behavior, but, by increasing the number of seats on their aircraft and shrinking their size, they aren’t helping matters, according to SmarterTravel senior editor Sarah Schlichter.

“There is more stress with the travel experience these days,” she told Business Insider.

“You have less personal space. Everybody’s kind of in each other’s face. And so I wouldn’t be surprised if that sort of environment is leading a little bit more to people acting out.”

Stories of extreme incidents might make travelers more stressed

Schlichter thinks that the frequency with which disruptive behavior is documented and shared might change air travelers’ expectations before they get to the airport. If a passenger’s impression of air travel is formed by depictions of extreme behavior, that passenger might expect the worst and be more likely to act out of character if something goes wrong. That may not result in the kind of incident that inspires other passengers to pull out their smartphones, but it could make the idea of being rude to airline employees seem more acceptable.

“I think people sometimes go in expecting the worst, and that might predispose you to more stress and more incidents,” Schlichter said.

While the increased visibility of misbehavior may be out of airlines’ control, they can take steps to decrease the odds of a passenger’s frustration turning into front-page news. Bhaskara thinks airlines should focus on positive incentives rather than negative ones. That means giving passengers perks like gift cards or free drinks to resolve potential conflicts rather than punishing them for misbehavior. 

“You’re going to catch more flies with honey than you are with a baseball bat,” he said.

But he cautioned that airlines can’t be too generous when they sense a passenger might become a liability. If they’re too quick to pay off potentially troublesome passengers, they might create the impression that they reward misbehavior, which could lead to more of it. 

There’s no clear solution for airlines

No matter how airlines approach customer service in the social media age, there’s a drawback. If they do nothing, they’re criticized for being callous or ignorant. But if they design new training programs for employees or update their customer service policies, it might not have any impact on their reputations.

“The good flights are never going to make headlines. So even if you improve service and more people are happy, does that help you in the court of public opinion? I don’t know,” Schlichter said. 

“I don’t know what the answer is.”

Neither do airlines, who live under the constant threat of having to start damage control on a moment’s notice when a passenger or employee’s misbehavior goes viral. For them, the question isn’t if they’ll be at the center of a scandal, but when.
