    Elephants pass test with ‘profound implications’ for their intelligence

    Elephants have passed a test of intelligence which scientists say has “profound” implications for our understanding of their mental capabilities. They were found to be capable of performing a task that showed they have a level of self-understanding that is rare in the animal world and defeats humans until they are about two years old. Elephants have already shown they can recognise themselves in a mirror, something that is thought to be relatively rare among animals.

    Five of David Letterman’s Best Late Night Donald Trump Takedowns

    Each time Donald Trump appeared on a late night show during his presidential campaign he often left unscathed. Stephen Colbert made a wholehearted attempt to corner Trump during a one-on-one interview in 2015, but the (alleged) billionaire dodged the host’s inquiry for an apology and surprisingly aced a pop quiz that asked if he could accurately remember his own quotes. A year later, the lone Republican candidate’s appearance on The Tonight Show caused then-ratings juggernaut Jimmy Fallon to...

    You have one day to stop Congress from giving away your web browsing history

    Last week, on a party-line vote, the Senate voted to repeal the Federal Communications Commission’s 2016 broadband privacy rules giving consumers the power to choose how their ISPs use and share their personal data. Tomorrow, the House of Representatives will vote, and if the House also votes to repeal the rules, the bill will go to President Trump, who is expected to sign it. The consequences of repeal are simple: ISPs like Comcast, AT&T, and Charter will be free to sell your personal inf...

    Stronger than Tea: The anti-Trump resistance is much bigger than the Tea Party — and it has to be

    The anti-Trump resistance is not like the Tea Party, to which it is frequently compared. It’s much more serious, despite repeated denials in the mainstream media. True, it lacks a misleading, self-important moniker, and it’s only been around a few weeks or months, rather than years. But the Women’s March brought out more than 4 million people to more than 900 events on all seven continents. Tea Party protests on Tax Day in 2009 were an order of magnitude smaller in total...

    If you pay $200,000 a year to the company Donald Trump owns, you too can have access most weekends to the president and his top officials. As an alternative, your organization could cut a $150,000 check to bring in a couple of hundred people who will have a chance to schmooze with the president and cabinet officials. Foreign moguls and dignitaries welcome. This isn't Bill Clinton's Lincoln Bedroom. This isn't the Clinton Foundation during Hillary's reign at the State Departme...

    Woman sent back to Singapore despite 27-year marriage

    A woman married to a British man for 27 years has been sent back to Singapore. Irene Clennell told the BBC she has been removed without warning.

Periods spent abroad caring for her parents are thought to have invalidated her residential status. It is understood Mrs Clennell has spent most of her life in Singapore. The Home Office said it expected all those without leave to remain to...

    How an Immigration Ban Would Affect the Spice Trade

    The Trump administration’s sloppily implemented immigration ban sent shockwaves and incited protests throughout the world, and though the executive order is currently on hold thanks to a federal appeals court, the future of it is uncertain. Beyond the immediate and obvious consequences of closing the borders to travelers and emigrants from seven countries — Iraq, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen, Libya, and Syria...
