    Palantir’s Relationship With America’s Spies Has Been Worse Than You’d Think

    Palantir Technologies, the Silicon Valley data company co-founded by billionaire investor Peter Thiel, has developed an almost mythical reputation for its work building tools for the U.S. intelligence community. But Palantir has had a far rockier relationship with the nation’s top spy agencies than its image would let on, BuzzFeed News has learned. As of summer 2015, the Central Intelligence Agency, a signature client, was “recalcitrant” and didn’t “like us,” while Palantir’s relat...

    Don't Buy Animal Abuse: Boycott These Tourist Attractions

    Be kind to animals by avoiding these wildlife tourist attractions. Sometimes animal and wildlife tourist attractions are disguised as natural, helpful, or worse - as conservation, when in reality they're just masked exploitation and mistreatment, and even animal-loving tourists may not be aware of the underlying misery involved, and unknowingly pay for and support cruel practices.

    Oregon set to double recycling rate to 10 cents a can

    Oregon's first-in-the-nation bottle recycling program will now double the payout for used soda cans and glass bottles, and frugal residents have been stockpiling for months in anticipation.

    Ford's new room-sized 3D printer upends additive manufacturing as we know it

    Like nearly every automaker, Ford is keen to figure out how 3D printing can improve its ability to develop and build new cars. Additive manufacturing holds the promise of shorter lead times, increased customization and lighter weight parts, among other efficiencies. Unsurprisingly, there's a lot of blue-sky thinking out there, and still not a ton of actionable data. But that's changing, including at the Ford Motor Company, which has an impressive new tool in its arsenal, the Stratasys ...

    Ticket touts face unlimited fines for using 'bots' to buy in bulk

    Touts who use computer software to harvest concert tickets in bulk and resell them at vast mark-ups face unlimited fines as part of a crackdown on highly profitable resale sites such as Viagogo, StubHub and GetMeIn. The Department of Culture, Media and Sport will announce a package of measures to curb the growing power of the so-called “secondary ticketing” industry, which now regularly offers tickets at huge mark-ups, even before they are available to the general public.

    100 Percent of Cars Sold in Norway to be Electric by 2025

    Norway's electric car market is growing rapidly. While only 2% of car sales in 2002 were EVs, that number has risen to 22% in 2015 and is continuing to grow. That jump makes Norway's goal of selling purely electric vehicles by 2025 seem a little less ambitious. Because of this growth, Norway has created a program to ramp up the number of charging stations around the country. This should make driving an electric car a more viable option while also solving some of the range anxiety that ...

    If Trump's tweets are a bid to deflect attention from 'Russiagate', it's not working

    Donald Trump is up in the middle of the night – again. His latest lash-out – a Twitter blitzkrieg early on Saturday, in which he accuses Barack Obama of a "Nixon/Watergate" plot to tap the phones at the Trump Tower headquarters in New York in the run-up to last year's election – featured a succession of five similarly-worded tweets, belted out between 3.32am and 4.02am. He's at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida and, coming minutes apart, the tweets started with a charge ...

    Burger King animal feed sourced from deforested lands in Brazil and Bolivia

    The hamburger chain Burger King has been buying animal feed produced in soy plantations carved out by the burning of tropical forests in Brazil and Bolivia, according to a new report.

The campaign group Mighty Earth says that evidence gathered from aerial drones, satellite imaging, supply-chain mapping and field research shows a system...

    Invasive Wild Pigs Leave a Swath of Destruction Across U.S. – And They Keep Spreading

    They go by many names: wild boar, wild hog, razorback, Eurasian boar, feral swine. But whatever you call them, invasive wild pigs (Sus scrofa) are wreaking environmental havoc and spreading rapidly. Wild pigs were first brought to the southern U.S. in the 1500s as a source of food for early explorers and settlers, and repeated introductions occurred thereafter. In the 1900s, the Eurasian or Russian wild boar was introduced to the U.S. for sport hunting. Today’s invasive wild pigs are the desce...

    A legendary MP died yesterday and his final message on Brexit is something everyone should listen to

    Tam Dalyell said MPs should “have the balls” to vote honestly on Brexit in a candid interview less than eight months before he died. The stalwart Labour backbencher, who spent 43 years as an MP and died yesterday, said politicians were being cowards if they did not vote with their guts. His comments, aired on 29 June, six days after the referendum on the UK leaving the EU, are particularly poignant this week after Jeremy Corbyn announced a three-line whip urging his MPs to vote in favour of ...
