    Sources claim Donald and Melania Trump 'never spend the night together — ever'

    In addition to the frosty body language between the first couple and the fact that the first lady would rather spend millions of taxpayer dollars than live in the same city as her husband, the report that Donald and Melania Trump don’t even share a bed when they’re together points to the fact that these two clearly hate each other.

    San Francisco talks robot tax

    Following the recent advice of Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Supervisor Jane Kim called for a hearing Tuesday on imposing a tax on robots and automation. “We are finding that robots have begun to destroy millions of American jobs. The long predicted era of robots and automation replacing human workers has arrived,” Kim said. “We need to ensure that the massive new wealth created by automation is redirected to investing in education and training displaced workers for the jobs of the future.”

    What's in a name? When Pluto was demoted to dwarf planet status in 2006, it was because the International Astronomical Union (IAU) declared that to be a planet, you had to be massive enough to clear your neighboring region of other objects.

    Gamers Are Having A Lot More Sex Than 'Gym Goers', Study Finds

    Stereotypes are hard to get rid of. Even amongst the gaming community we tend to see the average gamer as an overweight, frustrated, mouse-grabbing male; one with little to no knowledge of what makes a decent beard. But, time and time again, scientific studies have stepped in to shatter the image of #VideoGames in popular culture. I must say, even though I'm someone who supports challenges to the stereotypes that hold our industry back, I had no idea that we were so... promiscuous.

    Climate Change Has Already Harmed Almost Half of All Mammals

    The effect of climate change on endangered species has been wildly underestimated, a new study has found. A survey of studies has determined that climate change has had a particularly dire effect on mammals and birds on the endangered species list. That includes about half of the mammals and almost a quarter of the birds on the “red list” kept by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), according to a study published in the journal Nature Climate Change.

    Why we need to redefine the "cure" for cancer

    In his final State of the Union address one year ago, President Obama announced a “moonshot” initiative to “cure cancer once and for all.” Though the moonshot will be one of Obama’s few health programs to continue under President Donald Trump — its $1.8 billion budget is secure — today, on World Cancer Day, it remains more difficult than ever to imagine a real cure.
