    Canadian jets intercept Russian bombers for first time in 2 years

    Canadian fighter jets have intercepted Russian bombers off Canada’s northern coast for the first time in more than two years, as relations between Moscow and the West continue to worsen. Two CF-18s were scrambled on Thursday after North American early-warning air defences spotted two TU-95 Bear bombers approaching Alaskan and Canadian airspace from the west around 7 p.m. The long-range bombers, which can carry nuclear weapons, were also tracked by U.S. F-22 jets based out of Alaska, said North...

    There's Not Much Role-Playing in Role-Playing Games These Days

    If you're wondering why Extra Punctuation doesn't seem to show up as often as it used to, it's because it had gone on long enough that I started to feel like I was repeating myself, and rather than feeling obliged to force out a page of rambly bollocks I should only do them when there's something about the most recently ZPed game that I really genuinely want to write about. So here we are. I want to talk about role playing. And why it seems to be such a very small part of wha...

    China Sends 150K Troops To North Korean Border

    Things are escalating quickly … all over the world. In addition to the powder keg in Syria – needlessly stoked by an ill-conceived American escalation last week – there is looming destabilization in Asia. According to Chosun, a Korean news agency, the People’s Republic of China has moved an estimated 150,000 troops to the border of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (a.k.a. North Korea) in order to prepare for “unforeseen circumstances.” Among such unforeseen circumstances? ...

    Large protest in support of Hungary's Soros-backed university

    Thousands of people have taken part in a protest in Hungary to demand the abolition of laws which could force the closure of one of the country's most prestigious universities. New rules introduced by the government mean the Central European University (CEU) would be unable to award diplomas because it is registered in the US. The university was founded by philanthropist George Soros. The legislation has already been rushed through parliament.

    US 'prepared to do more' in Syria if chemical weapons used again

    After launching air strikes against a Syrian air base on Thursday, the U.S. indicated that while it had no plans for any further escalation against the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, it could not be totally ruled out either. "We are prepared to do more, but we hope that will not be necessary," Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N., said during an emergency U.N. Security Council meeting on Friday. "The United States will not stand by when chemical weapons ar...

    Future contact lenses may measure glucose, detect cancer, monitor drug use

    In the future, your contacts lenses may do more than help you see clearly — they may help save your life. Engineers at Oregon State University are working to embed transparent sensors into contact lenses, which could then monitor biomarkers to track drug use, blood glucose levels, or even detect early signs of cancer.

    Serbs protest for 4th day against powerful president-elect

    Several thousand mostly young people have marched in the capital and several other Serbian cities to protest the election of powerful Prime Minister as the country's new president. Chanting slogans against Vucic, the protesters held banners with phrases such as "Stop the government terror." Demonstrators have gathered every day since Vucic's victory Sunday, responding to calls on social media that have accused him of leading a "dictatorship."

    Bitcoin Doesn't Waste Electricity

    Of all the objections to Bitcoin, the objection that it “wastes” electricity is the most absurd. This thinking betrays a fundamental misunderstanding of how electricity works, how markets work, and what waste is. Electricity is a real time service. It is transmitted by specialist companies, through either Solar, Nuclear, Wind or Water generation. When these services produce electricity, the consumers of it draw it in real time...

    These 3 laws might reduce U.S. gun deaths by 80%

    More than 90 people are killed by guns every day in the United States. In 2013, there were 33,636 gun deaths in the US. Civilians own approximately 270 million guns, roughly one “for every man, woman, and child,” as President Obama noted in an address to the nation in the wake of the shooting rampage at an Oregon community college last October that left 10 dead. A nationwide study that shows just 9 of 25 state gun laws are effective in reducing firearm deaths, suggests that if three laws imp...

    Pescatarians warned they are eating 'sentient animals' who form friendships, after landmark study on fish

    Fish are sentient animals who form friendships, experience “positive emotions” and have individual personalities. That, according to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA), is the implication of a landmark new study which found zebrafish are social animals in a similar way to humans and other mammals.

    This Cyanobacteria Struck Out on its Own to Create All Life

    All life on Earth owes its existence to a single class of Cyanobacteria that took it upon itself to learn photosynthesis. A new study shows that around 2.5 billion years ago, a certain enterprising bacteria diverged from its non-oxygen-producing forebears to become the first oxygen-producing one, a split which might have taken place multiple times in Earth’s early history. It was only after this divergence that modern life emerged.

    New population of rare tigers found in eastern Thailand

    A new breeding population of the critically endangered Indochinese tiger has been found in a national park in eastern Thailand, conservationists say. Camera traps discovered a small population with at least six cubs in the jungle. Poaching and the loss of habitat has reduced the global population of the sub-species to under 250. Conservationists said the success was due to the stepping-up of anti-poaching efforts in Thailand.

    How to hunt for a black hole with a telescope the size of Earth

    Here's how to catch a black hole. First, spend many years enlisting eight of the top radio observatories across four continents to join forces for an unprecedented hunt. Next, coordinate plans so that those observatories will simultaneously turn their attention to the same patches of sky for several days. Then, collect observations at a scale never before attempted in science — generating 2 petabytes of data each night.

    Bill Gates: Cutting Foreign Aid Makes America Less Safe

    Foreign aid is often in the hot seat, but today the heat is cranked up especially high. The United States government, one of the world’s most influential donors, is considering dramatic cuts to health and development programs around the world. I understand why some Americans watch their tax dollars going overseas and wonder why we’re not spending them at home. Here’s my answer: These projects keep Americans safe. And by promoting health, security and economic opportunity, they stabilize vu...
