    The Average Purchase Price for a Home Has Gone Up in 24 of the 25 Most Populous Cities in the World Over the Last Year.

    Rising real estate prices are almost always expected during the spring in the U.S. More people are looking for a home and sellers that have waited until now to list their homes can usually score a quick sale if they price their house correctly. Outside of the U.S., prices are mostly on the upswing, continuing a climb that started after the fallout of the 2008 U.S. housing crisis had been realized.

    Samsung Galaxy S8 review: ahead of the curve

    People "aren’t excited by new phones anymore." That’s the first thing Samsung’s product manager said to me before introducing the company’s new flagship Galaxy S8 last month. He’s not wrong: the modern concept of the smartphone has been around for a decade now, and the differences between devices are exceedingly incremental. It doesn’t help that virtually every smartphone looks the same, too.

    Over 90% of College Students Today Regularly Use Netflix

    New numbers show that an incredible number of today’s college students, more than 90%, have access to a Netflix account they regularly use. In a new survey from LendEDU, only only 8% college students that responded to the survey said they don’t have a Netflix account. That actually goes right in line with numbers from Piper Jaffray that showed almost 40% of teens watch Netflix every single day. Their closest competitors, Amazon Prime Video and Hulu, each came in at just 3% each for daily use.

The Pirates unveiled a new LED scoreboard on the right-field wall in their home opener Friday against the Braves. It not only gives scores of other MLB games, fans can do the Super Bucco Run, a between-innings promotion that is the dream of any Super Mario Bros. fan.

    US-Mexico border crossings at 17-year low

    The number of people arrested crossing the Mexico border into the US has fallen to the lowest level in 17 years. There were fewer than 17,000 arrests of undocumented migrants in March, the least since 2000, according to US Customs and Border Protection. Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly told Congress the decline was "no accident", crediting President Trump. The US government began accepting bids on Tuesday from contractors to build a prototype for a border wall.

    Murakami calls for fight against history revisionism

    Haruki Murakami, the Japanese author perennially pegged as a contender for the Nobel literature prize, has called for a fight against historical revisionism in a rare interview with Japanese media published on Sunday. His comments came after a successful Japanese hotel chain operator triggered an angry backlash from China earlier this year for his book claiming the 1937 Nanjing massacre committed by Japanese troops a "fabrication".

    Wikileaks releases code that could unmask CIA hacking operations

    Up until this week, WikiLeaks' "Vault 7" releases of files from a Central Intelligence Agency software development server have largely consisted of documentation for the various malware projects the CIA's Engineering Development Group created to aid the agency's mission. But on Friday afternoon, WikiLeaks began actually releasing portions of the CIA's development library. And while the release contains no malware, it's potentially the most damaging information ...

    Habitable Planet Reality Check: The Nearby GJ 273 or Luyten’s Star

    In recent years, the media has been filled with news about the thousands of extrasolar planets found by NASA’s Kepler spacecraft as it monitors the brightness of hundreds of thousands of stars looking for transits. Because of the wide net cast by Kepler in its primary and now its “K2” extended mission, most of those exoplanets discoveries are many hundreds of light years away or more. Inevitably the lay public asks “why aren’t astronomers looking for exoplanets around stars closer to u...

    We've lost sight of how appalling Trump's "Obama tapped my phones" accusation is

    In the day-to-day crush of news, it’s easy to lose perspective. And this year especially, it’s easy for the abnormal to become normal. So let’s be clear: If President Trump truly does have no evidence to back up his accusation that President Obama tapped his phones — as increasingly seems to be the case — he has viciously slandered his predecessor with a bogus accusation.

    Swedish kids are set to learn programming from their first year of primary school, as the country's government introduces an improved digital competence aspect to the curriculum designed to make the tech savvy Swedes even better with computers. Sweden has a reputation for being a leading nation in the tech industry, but rather than resting on its laurels, the plan is for kids to be exposed to the nuts and bolts of technology at an earlier age, according to education minister Gustav Fridolin...

    ‘Simply not true’: The Weather Channel schools Trump EPA chief’s bogus climate claims

    Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt drew widespread condemnation from the scientific community this week when he said he didn’t believe carbon dioxide was a prime contributor to climate change. “I think that measuring with precision human activity on the climate is something very challenging to do and there’s tremendous disagreement about the degree of impact, so no, I would not agree that it’s a primary contributor to the global warming that we see,” the EPA bos...
