    These Parrots Can Make Other Parrots 'Laugh' — a First

    Forget the laughing kookaburra—kea are the birds that really tickle each other's funny bones. The highly intelligent parrot has a specific call, that—like human laughter—puts other parrots that hear it in a good mood.

    This tiny device can record everything you say and transcribe it for you

    Senstone may be one of the world's smallest wearables — and perhaps one of the most useful. The tiny device has one function: to help you keep track of your ideas, to-do lists, and notes while you're on the go. Senstone records voice memos, uploads them to an app, and transcribes them for you. The device is launching on Kickstarter Tuesday with the goal of raising $50,000, but I got an early version of the Senstone to try out for myself.

    I'm a Silicon Valley liberal, and I traveled across the country to interview 100 Trump supporters — here's what I learned

    After the election, I decided to talk to 100 Trump voters from around the country. I went to the middle of the country, the middle of the state, and talked to many online. This was a surprisingly interesting and helpful experience — I highly recommend it. With three exceptions, I found something to like about everyone I talked to (though I strongly disagreed with many of the things they said).

    Machine learning could finally crack the 4,000-year-old Indus script

    In 1872 a British general named Alexander Cunningham, excavating an area in what was then British-controlled northern India, came across something peculiar. Buried in some ruins, he uncovered a small, one inch by one inch square piece of what he described as smooth, black, unpolished stone engraved with strange symbols — lines, interlocking ovals, something resembling a fish — and what looked like a bull etched underneath. The general, not recognizing the symbols and finding the bull to be u...

Memos obtained by various media outlets show that scientists at the Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Agriculture are now blocked from communicating with the public and the press. At the EPA, whose grants and contract budget have also been frozen, employees are not allowed to talk about this change to reporters or on social media.
