    The science of laughter – and why it also has a dark side

    When you hear someone laugh behind you, you probably picture them on the phone or with a friend – smiling and experiencing a warm, fuzzy feeling inside. Chances are just the sound of the laughter could make you smile or even laugh along. But imagine that the person laughing is just walking around alone in the street, or sitting behind you at a funeral. Suddenly, it doesn’t seem so inviting.

    Mysterious death of New York judge was initially called a suicide. Now, police think it's suspicious

    The mystery of how a prominent African American judge came to be found floating dead in the Hudson River has deepened as her family and widowed husband disputed suggestions by the New York Police Department that she had committed suicide. What is known is that Sheila Abdus-Salaam, 65, a judge on the state’s highest court, went for a walk alone on the evening of April 11, locking the door to her Harlem brownstone, leaving her phone and wallet at home.

    Snowden Documents Reveal Scope of Secrets Exposed to China in 2001 Spy Plane Incident

    When China boldly seized a U.S. underwater drone in the South China Sea last December and initially refused to give it back, the incident ignited a weeklong political standoff and conjured memories of a similar event more than 15 years ago. In April 2001, just months before the 9/11 attacks gripped the nation, a U.S. Navy spy plane flying a routine reconnaissance mission over the South China Sea was struck by a People’s Liberation Army fighter jet that veered aggressively close.

    Mysterious ‘alien’ radio signals are definitely coming from space, not Earth

    Mysterious ‘fast radio bursts’ which some scientists have said could be evidence of alien intelligence are definitely coming from space – not Earth. Scientists from Swinburne University of Technology pinned down the location of three of the mysterious bursts using the Molonglo telescope. ‘Perhaps the most bizarre explanation for the FRBs is that they were alien transmissions,’ said Professor Matthew Bailes from Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne.

    No More ‘Superbugs’? Maple Syrup Extract Enhances Antibiotic Action

    Antibiotics save lives every day, but there is a downside to their ubiquity. High doses can kill healthy cells along with infection-causing bacteria, while also spurring the creation of “superbugs” that no longer respond to known antibiotics. Now, researchers may have found a natural way to cut down on antibiotic use without sacrificing health: a maple syrup extract that dramatically increases the potency of these medicines.

    Couple in their 80s pose for their wedding photos 40 years after their big day

    When Chang Benfu and his wife Zhao Xuefang married back in 1976, the wedding was a simple affair. They didn’t have the money for a grand ceremony, or even for a photographer to capture the big day. But now, four decades later, a group of university students have given them the greatest wedding gift of all and given the couple their own photo-shoot.

    This climate lawsuit could change everything. No wonder the Trump administration doesn’t want it going to trial

    A groundbreaking climate lawsuit, brought against the federal government by 21 children, has been hailed by environmentalists as a bold new strategy to press for climate action in the United States. But the Trump administration, which has pledged to undo Barack Obama’s climate regulations, is doing its best to make sure the case doesn’t get far. The Trump administration this week filed a motion to overturn a ruling by a federal judge back in November that cleared the lawsuit for trial – an...

    Nicaraguan woman dies after being stripped naked, tied up and thrown into fire in exorcism ritual

    Outside a church in a remote part of Nicaragua last week, a pastor and a group from his congregation stood around a bonfire for a prayer, their eyes closed and hands raised. A 25-year-old woman needed healing, and through a divine revelation, a clergy member in the church claimed he had instructions to build the fire to cure her. They stripped the woman naked, tied up her hands and feet and hurled her into the flames, Nicaraguan police said. She was consumed by the fire and suffered first- and s...

    Mexican peso surges despite Trump threats

    Maybe Mexico's "contingency plan" for President Trump is working out after all. Mexico's currency, the peso, is one of the best performers in the world in February, up over 5%. Before the U.S. election, the country's central bank started implementing what its governor, Agustin Carstens, called a "contingency plan." Carstens says Trump's potential policies would hit Mexico's economy like a "hurricane."

    Zakharova relates claims about Snowden with pressure on Trump

    Wikipedia bans Daily Mail as 'unreliable' source

    Wikipedia editors have voted to ban the Daily Mail as a source for the website in all but exceptional circumstances after deeming the news group “generally unreliable”. The move is highly unusual for the online encyclopaedia, which rarely puts in place a blanket ban on publications and which still allows links to sources such as Kremlin backed news organisation Russia Today, and Fox News, both of which have raised concern among editors.
