    Security increase in Belgium after car 'tried to speed down street'

    Belgian police raised security in the port of Antwerp after a car laden with weapons sped through a busy shopping street, forcing pedestrians to jump out of the way.  The federal prosecutor's office said the car, with French license plates, ran a red light on Thursday morning before being intercepted by police at the port docks. The bomb squad was brought in and security was increased in the centre of the town in places where people normally congregate.  A French national was arrested.

    The inside story of the Tory election scandal

    A few hours after dawn on 8 May 2015, the morning after his unexpected victory in the general election, David Cameron delivered a celebratory speech to the jubilant staff of Conservative campaign headquarters, at 4 Matthew Parker Street, Westminster. “I’m not an old man but I remember casting a vote in 1987 and that was a great victory,” he said. “I remember 2010, achieving that dream of getting Labour out and getting the Tories back in, and that was amazing. But I think this is the swee...

    For healthier arteries, do as Amazon rainforest inhabitants do

    The Tsimane living in the Amazon have the lowest reported levels of age-related hardening of the arteries in the world, say researchers who encourage Westerners to learn from these Bolivian rainforest inhabitants. Atherosclerosis was thought to be a natural part of aging. Even Egyptian mummies have shown signs of plaque buildup in the arteries. For the study in Friday's medical journal The Lancet, cardiologists focused their low-radiation CT scanners on the Tsimane, a forager-horticulturali...

    US military confirms Syria bombing, denies mosque hit

    The US military has said it conducted airstrikes in a northern Syria location where local reports say a mosque was struck and more than 40 people died, but the military denies it bombed a place of worship. Instead, a US military official said, Thursday's airstrike along the border of Idlib and Aleppo provinces struck a building believed to be hosting an al Qaeda meeting near a mosque. That building was 40 to 50 feet from the mosque, but recent satellite imagery shows the mosque still is sta...

    A Chunk of Earth's Original Crust Has Been Discovered

    Around 4.3 billion years ago, a planetary blob of hot molten rock named Earth cooled just enough to start forming a crust. Billions of years later, humans evolved. And now, two of those humans have discovered that a chunk of that original crust is actually still around on the surface today. A duo of geologists led by Jonathan O'Neil at the University of Ottawa have just announced the discovery of an ancient chunk of Earth's original crust. It was found near the eastern shore of the Hud...

    How Texas State Troopers Turn Routine Traffic Stops into Deportations

    On February 11, Everardo Conejo-Barbosa and his brother, Juan Luis, were driving home from work on Interstate 35 when they saw a state trooper’s lights in the rearview. With Trump in the White House, and immigration agents all over town, they wondered if their time had come. It had. The brothers, unauthorized Mexican immigrants with clean criminal records, had lived in Austin for several years, working construction jobs to support their families in the Mexican state of Guanajuato.

    Your Hot Hands Can Give Away Your Smartphone PIN

    If you were protecting your smartphone passcode from someone lurking over your shoulder, or from unseen security cameras, you might cover the screen as you tap in the PIN’s four or six digits. But once you’ve unlocked the phone, perhaps you’d let down your guard, and leave the screen in full view—especially if it’s off.

    To keep Tor hack source code secret, DOJ dismisses child porn case

    Rather than share the now-classified technological means that investigators used to locate a child porn suspect, federal prosecutors in Washington state have dropped all charges against a man accused of accessing Playpen, a notorious and now-shuttered website. The case, United States v. Jay Michaud, is one of nearly 200 cases nationwide that have raised new questions about the appropriate limitations on the government’s ability to hack criminal suspects. Michaud marks just the second time that...

But that’s difficult when you’re homeless and struggling with substance abuse issues, he said, standing at the intersection of Somerset and Franklin streets in Portland holding a cardboard sign that asks for money so he can buy something to eat. “I’ve always been a working man,” he said on a recent weekday morning, shortly before a driver handed him $2. “I write ‘work’ on my sign and get few offers.”

    Microsoft renames Windows Holographic to Windows Mixed Reality due to ‘broader vision for the platform’

    Microsoft’s approach to mixed reality has, up until now, been referred to as “Windows Holographic.” The name made sense as a descriptor of Microsoft’s approach towards holograms in their headsets, but it seems like the company had a different idea about how to move forward. Microsoft spoke at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) earlier today about Acer’s new “Windows Mixed Reality Dev Kit,” seemingly ditching the old “Windows Holographic” for some new terminology.

    Intel is Dropping Processor Prices in Wake of Ryzen Launch

    It seems that Intel is getting nervous about the AMD Ryzen launch and has started to lower prices on their processors. The equivalent 6900K model however still is 999 USD, twice as much as the Ryzen flagship. Others like the quad-core processors do see a price cut. Also we think with a tiny bit of tweaking that 6900K might even get beaten or normalized by even a 329 USD Ryzen 7 1700 processor. The new prices have not gone into effect everywhere, here in the EU they are still at the same old leve...
