    For insect detectives, the trickiest cases involve the bugs that aren't there

    Gale Ridge could tell something was wrong as soon as the man walked into her office at the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station. He was smartly dressed in a collared shirt and slacks, but his skin didn’t look right: It was bright pink, almost purple — and weirdly glassy. Without making eye contact, he sat hunched in the chair across from Ridge and began to speak. He was an internationally renowned physician and researcher. He had taught 20 years’ worth of students, treating patients...

    Matthew Perry Beat Up Justin Trudeau in the Fifth Grade

    Matthew Perry has a story about Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that he’s not particularly proud of: “My friend Chris Murray, who was also in the fifth grade in Canada, reminded me that we actually beat up Justin Trudeau,” he confessed on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday.

    FCC May Allow Carriers to Block Robocalls From Spoofed Numbers

    The FCC later this month will consider a proposal that would allow carriers to block robocalls that have a spoofed caller ID. If approved, the rule would be a major boon for consumers who are hit with robocalls–many of which are part of scams. Caller ID spoofing is a key part of many phone scams, and the tools that make it possible are easy to obtain and use. Scammers have the ability to spoof virtually any phone number when calling a victim, making their calls seem legitimate.

    Physicists Have Detected a Friction-Like Force in a Perfect Vacuum

    One of the most fundamental tenets of modern physics is that in a perfect vacuum - a place entirely devoid of matter - no friction can possibly exist, because empty space cannot exert a force on objects travelling through it. But despite the conventional wisdom, physicists in the UK discovered that a decaying atom travelling through a complete vacuum would experience a friction-like force, and now they've figured out how this reinforces - rather than breaks - Einstein's theory of gener...
