    Game of Thrones isn't a fantasy, it's a warning

    I have eagerly awaited the final season of Game of Thrones, and its strange blend of fictive medieval Britain, supernatural monsters, and pornography. Over the seasons the plot has gained speed and focus while the pornography has vanished and—incredible as it seems—we can also detect that George R.R. Martin’s fantastic story has a message. Perhaps we can explain its enormous success by considering how, at a subconscious, dreamlike level, it deals with humanity’s most profound problem.

    Superflare! Powerful eruptions observed on brown dwarf

    A superflare ten times more powerful than anything seen on our Sun has erupted on an ultra-cool star almost the same size as Jupiter–potentially changing our understanding of stellar activity. The star —an L Dwarf type named ULAS J224940.13–011236.9 — is the coolest and smallest yet observed to give off a rare white-light superflare. In fact, the body may be so small it can’t be considered to be a star at all!

    Asus Just Gave You 1 Million Reasons To Switch From Windows To Linux

    Cyber-security and antivirus company Kaspersky dropped a bomb on Asus laptop users this week, revealing that malware was distributed through the Asus Live Update utility. It masqueraded as a legitimate security update, and even boasted a “verified” certificate — hosted on Asus servers — to make it appear valid. Kaspersky has deemed this attack “one of the biggest supply-chain incidents ever.”

    Exoplanet tally set to pass 4,000 mark

    The number of planets detectedThe number of planets detected around other stars - or exoplanets - is set to hit the 4,000 mark. The huge haul is a sign of the explosion of findings from searches with telescopes on the ground and in space over the last 25 years. It's also an indication of just how common planets are - with most stars in the Milky Way hosting at least one world in orbit around them.

    Robot valets are now parking cars in one of France’s busiest airports

    Next time you head to the airport in France there might be a robot waiting to pick up your car. French firm Stanley Robotics has been trialling its self-driving robot valets for a few years, and this week started its first full-time service at France’s Lyon-Saint-Exupéry airport. The system works like this. Customers park their cars in special hangars where the vehicles are scanned to confirm their make and model.

    Let’s Destroy Robocalls

    Congress may have found an issue that all Americans can rally around. Stopping robocalls. All right — a little depressing that it can’t be world peace or affordable health care. But let’s take what we can get. If our elected officials could join hands and lead us into a world where phones are no longer an instrument of torture, maybe it’d give them enough confidence to march forward and, um, fund some bridge repair.

    Late-Night Exercise and Sleep Quality: New Study Is Promising for Night Owls

    In the past, nighttime exercisers have been issued a warning: going hard around bedtime could lead to sleeplessness, but an increasing number of studies, including a study published Wednesday in Experimental Physiology, are showing that late-night exercise doesn’t disrupt sleep like previously thought.

    Sex Chromosomes Hold the Secret to Female Longevity

    Around the world, women outlive men. This is true in sickness and in health, in war and in peace, even during severe epidemics and famine. In most animal species, females live longer than males. Now, scientists at UC San Francisco have zeroed in on a possible genetic mechanism for this highly durable phenomenon, that – while it does not preclude the influence of other biological, social and environmental factors – suggests an important role for the second X chromosome, which is present in fe...

    Time to Panic

    The age of climate panic is here. Last summer, a heat wave baked the entire Northern Hemisphere, killing dozens from Quebec to Japan. Some of the most destructive wildfires in California history turned more than a million acres to ash, along the way melting the tires and the sneakers of those trying to escape the flames. Pacific hurricanes forced three million people in China to flee and wiped away almost all of Hawaii’s East Island.

    Can a Pixel Watch save Wear OS?

    It was an up and down week for fans of Wear OS with the news that Google may launch the oft-rumored Pixel Watch later this year, followed by the NPD report that Wear OS had probably at best a 10% smartwatch market share in the US last year. But, if you are a glass (Oops, probably shouldn’t mention Glass in a Google wearables post.) is half full sort of person, that doesn’t sound that bad considering the lack of hardware support from Qualcomm and the horrendous misstep that was Android Wear 2...

    Trump’s Plan to Keep America First in AI

    THE US LEADS the world in artificial intelligence technology. Decades of federal research funding, industrial and academic research, and streams of foreign talent have put America at the forefront of the current AI boom. Yet as AI aspirations have sprouted around the globe, the US government has lacked a high-level strategy to guide American investment and prepare for the technology’s effects.

    7 Interesting Findings In Psychology

    This is probably one of the eeriest and most disturbing discoveries in psychology. Cognitive dissonance is the idea that we find it difficult to hold two contradictory beliefs, so we unconsciously adjust one of them to make it fit with the other.
