Move over Dr. Dolittle: A new app has been developed that can translate your cat’s meow. MeowTalk records the sound of your feline friend and then attempts to identify the meaning. The purr-fect concept was developed by a former Amazon Alexa engineer.

Gen Z passes the vibe check: New reports show that Zillennials will reshape the economy and how we invest… forever.

Sectors that will benefit include e-commerce, luxury, and media, while areas like alcohol, meat, cars and travel may suffer.
