    Obsidian says it's 'very doubtful' that it will make another Fallout game

    Fallout: New Vegas, developed by Obsidian, is generally held to be the best of the Bethesda-era Fallout games. Some people even believe (erroneously) that it's the best of them all.

    Letting your dog sleep with you is good for chronic pain sufferers, new study shows

    For chronic pain sufferers, it may be smart to let sleeping dogs lie, a new University of Alberta study suggests. Contrary to blanket medical advice, shooing Fido out of the bedroom may not help people with long-term pain get a better night’s sleep, said researcher Cary Brown of the Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine. “Typically, people who have pain also have a lot of sleep problems, so usually if they ask their health-care provider about a pet, they’re told to get the pet out of the bedr...

    Study identifies gene that makes gentle touch feel painful after injury

    Ever wonder why things that normally feel gentle, like putting on soft shirts, are painful after a sunburn? In a study of four patients with a rare genetic disorder, NIH researchers found that PIEZO2, a gene previously shown to control our sense of our bodies in space and gentle touch, may also be responsible for tactile allodynia: the skin’s reaction to injury that makes normally gentle touches feel painful.

    Hurricane Michael falls short of a Category 5 – by just 2 mph

    As powerhouse Michael, a Category 4 hurricane, smashed into the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday, the supercharged storm had maximum sustained winds of 155 mph at landfall – just two miles shy of a Category 5, the fiercest on the scale. An hour after landfall, the storm's winds had weakened slightly to 150 mph. By 5 p.m., winds had eased to a still brutal 125 mph. Hurricanes generally lose strength over land since their source of energy (warm sea water) is gone.
