    This Canadian dog came back home thanks to the United States Coast Guard

    After an 11-day hiatus, an Ontario dog is back on Canadian soil, all thanks to the crew aboard the United State Coast Guard Mackinaw. On Christmas Eve, Kailaan Walker and his partner, Lydia Selin, were visiting family on St. Joseph Island. They decided to take their two dogs for a walk, when Logan ran away. The couple searched for Logan but couldn't find him. They put up posters, posted the information on social media and even put out a trail camera to see if they could locate him.

    Happy Death Day to the Nintendo Famicom (1983-1994)

    Nintendo sometimes makes a big deal about milestones—Mario's 30th, Zelda's 25th, and the "Year of Luigi" are all recent examples that come to mind—but one thing you won't usually hear them mention is how long it's been since something went away. Luckily, my encyclopedic knowledge of pointless factoids stands at the ready!

    On Mars: Earth-Like Clouds and a New Type of Rock

    NASA's Mars rovers have returned new evidence for past water, pictures of Earth-like clouds seen for the first time from the planet's surface, and a rock that doesn't look like anything scientists have ever seen. Meanwhile, officials say both robots are in surprisingly good health and could continue their science investigations for months more, despite nagging health problems.

    40 percent of states across the country are committed to Paris climate goals

    Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers (D) announced on Tuesday that the state had joined the U.S. Climate Alliance, making it the 20th state, plus Puerto Rico, to pledge to uphold the Paris climate agreement goals. Momentum behind local-level climate action continues to grow, and since the start of the year, three others have also joined the alliance: Michigan, New Mexico, and Illinois. This comes as federal action on climate change under the Trump administration continues to slide backwards.

    Samsung has just released the January 2019 security patch for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, continuing support for its first glass and metal flagships almost four years later. The update has been released in the UAE and comes with software version G920FXXU6ESA1 and G925FXXU6ESA1 for the S6 and S6+ respectively.

    Men in bloodstained pants protest circumcisions

    It’s pretty hard to miss this group of guys with painted blood-like stains on their clothes. When we asked them about it, they said this is how they feel everyday, not being able to make the decision about circumcision for themselves. It’s a circumstantial situation. “I don’t really know the whole process of everything,” said Joseph Markarewhich, who said he doesn’t talk about regularly, but knows it happens everyday.

    The truth about big oil and climate change

    In america, the world’s largest economy and its second biggest polluter, climate change is becoming hard to ignore. Extreme weather has grown more frequent. In November wildfires scorched California; last week Chicago was colder than parts of Mars. Scientists are sounding the alarm more urgently and people have noticed—73% of Americans polled by Yale University late last year said that climate change is real.

    Is Religious Freedom for Christians Only?

    When the Supreme Court turned a blind eye to President Trump’s hostility toward Muslims last summer, Justice Sonia Sotomayor warned, in dissent, that the majority was undermining the Constitution’s “foundational principles of religious tolerance.” In so doing, she said, the court was sending a message to “members of minority religions in our country that they are outsiders, not full members of the political commu­nity.”

    'Wiped out before our eyes': Hawaii offers bold plan to stop shark killings

    Sharks could soon become more numerous in Hawaii waters – and advocates say that’s a good thing. Lawmakers in Honolulu advanced a proposed ban on killing sharks in state waters on Wednesday, after receiving hundreds of calls and letters of support from around the country. The law, which would provide sweeping protection for any shark, rather than select species, could be the first of its kind in the United States.

    Cavity two-thirds the size of Manhattan discovered under Antarctic glacier

    Scientists have discovered a giant cavity at the bottom of a disintegrating glacier in Antarctica, sparking concerns that the ice sheet is melting more rapidly than expected. Researchers working as part of a Nasa-led study found the cavern, which they said was 300 metres tall and two-thirds the size of Manhattan, at the bottom of the massive Thwaites glacier. The space is big enough to have contained 14bn tonnes of ice and most of that ice has melted during the past three years.

    Ajit Pai loses in court—judges overturn gutting of tribal broadband program

    A federal appeals court has overturned Ajit Pai's attempt to take broadband subsidies away from tribal residents. The Pai-led Federal Communications Commission voted 3-2 in November 2017 to make it much harder for tribal residents to obtain a $25-per-month Lifeline subsidy that reduces the cost of Internet or phone service. The change didn't take effect because in August 2018, the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit stayed the FCC decision pending appeal.

    Scientists tap into open-access quantum computer to tease out quantum secrets

    The rules of quantum mechanics describe how atoms and molecules act very differently from the world around us. Scientists have made progress toward teasing out these rules—essential for finding ways to make new molecules and better technology—but some are so complex that they evade experimental verification. With the advent of open-access quantum computers, scientists at the University of Chicago saw an opportunity to do a very unusual experiment to test some of these quantum principles.
