The rebuke from Volker Bouffier, vice chairman of Merkel's Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party, reflects growing exasperation over Erdogan's assertions that Germany and other European powers were using Nazi tactics by banning Turkish political rallies in their ter...

    Oh god why do these headphones have a touchscreen on the side

    No, you can't see it while you're wearing them. Yes, it looks really dumb. But how many headphones let you ask Amazon's Alexa voice assistant to play your favorite song? How many can measure your heart rate, and adjust your tunes accordingly? Or play music from Spotify or SoundCloud over a built-in cellular connection? Or offer 16GB of on-board storage, so you don't need to carry your phone to have your MP3s and FLACs? And how many gimmicky headphones actually sound good?

    First, listen to the story with the happy ending: At 61, the executive was in excellent health. His blood pressure was a bit high, but everything else looked good, and he exercised regularly.

    Brain network connections may underlie social behavior linked to autism

    Evaluating the strength of connections in the brain is one avenue researchers have been exploring to help identify children at risk for autism spectrum disorder earlier in life. Now, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, with colleagues from the multicenter Infant Brain Imaging Study (IBIS) network, have found associations between brain connectivity and a key social behavior that is a central feature of autism. If it becomes possible to identify children with auti...
