    Indigenous myths carry warning signals about natural disasters

    hortly before 8am on 26 December 2004, the cicadas fell silent and the ground shook in dismay. The Moken, an isolated tribe on the Andaman Islands in the Indian Ocean, knew that the Laboon, the ‘wave that eats people’, had stirred from his ocean lair. The Moken also knew what was next: a towering wall of water washing over their island, cleansing it of all that was evil and impure. To heed the Laboon’s warning signs, elders told their children, run to high ground.

    Yad Vashem museum urges Spicer to learn about the Holocaust after Hitler comment

    Yad Vashem extended the invitation after the White House's Press Secretary drew an especially controversial comparison between Syria's Assad and Nazi leader Hitler. Spicer triggered an uproar on Tuesday (April 11) by saying Adolf Hitler did not use chemical weapons. He apologized after his comments drew immediate criticism on social media and elsewhere for overlooking the fact that millions of Jews were killed in Nazi gas chambers. As Spicer told CNN: "It was a mistake. I shouldn&...

    How not to create traffic jams, pollution and urban sprawl

    Even if the new headquarters that Apple is creating in California does not prove to be “the best office building in the world”, as Steve Jobs boasted shortly before his death in 2011, it will be an astounding sight. The main building resembles a flying saucer with a hole in the middle. Through its large, gently curving windows, workers will eventually look out on a wood containing some 7,000 carefully chosen trees. It is as though a race of high-tech beings has landed on a pristine planet.

    The LG G6 User Experience Proves 18:9 Has a Long Way to Go Before It's a Worthy Replacement

    We’ve heard time and time again that 2017 is all about eradicating the bezel. One way or another, OEMs want you to forget that your phone is more than a screen. Thin bezels can make for an attractive phone, but it’s also an obsession that can hurt the user experience when taken too far. The first taste of the 18:9 wave of phones we can expect in 2017 is the LG G6. The company has thus pioneered once more by investing a lot of R&D money into the phone’s most marketable and, in my opinio...

    Report: Russian warship in Mediterranean headed towards U.S. destroyers that attacked Syria

    Could just be an overhyped coincidence but Putin has been known to engage in petty provocations of U.S. ships since Trump took office. He may feel he has no choice but to rattle his saber after last night. By attacking, Trump defied Russia’s umbrella of protection over Assad. If Putin doesn’t respond somehow, even if it’s nothing more than making a show of parking a Russian ship near the two American destroyers, he risks looking weak in his first big test of wills with Trump.

    100 Years Later: Popular Mechanics' Coverage of World War I

    Four days after President Woodrow Wilson called for a special session of Congress in early April 1917, the U.S. officially declared war against the German Empire, becoming an associated power with the Allied Forces and entering into one of the bloodiest conflicts to ever grip Europe. It would still take more than two months for the first troops to arrive in the fields of France, but the U.S. had finally chosen a side.

    Solar power in California started setting production records on February 24th – production peaks have continued to occur since then. On Thursday of last week renewables broke 56% of total demand.

    Huge coral bleaching event warns of global devastation, study suggests

    Mass coral bleaching events are among the most conspicuous signs of the extent to which our oceans are warming. The latest alarming evidence indicates that reefs themselves can heat up substantially more than the waters surrounding them, adding to the shock the coral experiences from considerable temperature changes. It is this heat change that stresses the corals, causing bleaching that can kill living reefs.
