    The FBI Says Its Photo Analysis Is Scientific Evidence. Scientists Disagree.

    At the FBI Laboratory in Quantico, Virginia, a team of about a half-dozen technicians analyzes pictures down to their pixels, trying to determine if the faces, hands, clothes or cars of suspects match images collected by investigators from cameras at crime scenes. The unit specializes in visual evidence and facial identification, and its examiners can aid investigations by making images sharper, revealing key details in a crime or ruling out potential suspects.

    Student loans are driving a "rural brain drain" as students flock to big cities

    College students from rural areas are moving to big cities for higher wages to help pay off their student loans, according to new research from the Federal Reserve. Why it matters: A "rural brain drain" has been pulling college-educated people out of rural America and into urban areas, deepening an educational and political divide that is increasingly coming to define the country.

    Apple’s iPhone XS battery case actually works with the iPhone X

    It looks like the new $129 Smart Battery Case for the iPhone XS will support last year’s flagship iPhone X after all. Yesterday, it seemed like Apple was leaving its most dedicated customers out in the cold when the company announced the new battery case for the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR but not for the iPhone X that early adopters snapped up in late 2017.

    New plant-focused diet would ‘transform’ planet’s future, say scientists

    The first science-based diet that tackles both the poor food eaten by billions of people and averts global environmental catastrophe has been devised. It requires huge cuts in red meat-eating in western countries and radical changes across the world. The “planetary health diet” was created by an international commission seeking to draw up guidelines that provide nutritious food to the world’s fast-growing population. At the same time, the diet addresses the major role of farming – especi...

    Young Trans Children Know Who They Are

    Since 2013, Kristina Olson, a psychologist at the University of Washington, has been running a large, long-term study to track the health and well-being of transgender children—those who identify as a different gender from the one they were assigned at birth. Since the study’s launch, Olson has also heard from the parents of gender-nonconforming kids, who consistently defy gender stereotypes but have not socially transitioned.

    Hottest exoplanet ever discovered has metallic skies, rain like lava

    One day in the distant future, a team of intrepid humans might board a starship and set out for a world beyond our solar system — maybe one of the exoplanets of Alpha Centauri, the nearby star system. One place we'll never set foot on is Kelt-9b. In addition to being a gas giant without a solid surface, Kelt-9b lies hundreds of light-years away and is the hottest planet ever observed. Temperatures on its outer layer can exceed 4,000 degrees Celsius (7,000 degrees Fahrenheit) — hotter th...

    Why cryptocurrency is the answer

    The craze for cryptocurrency can be explained by a host of factors: the allure of getting rich quick; the attraction of off-the-grid accountancy for malefactors like tax evaders and drug dealers (though Bitcoin is traceable); the glamour of the new. Despite blockchain currencies’ wild volatility thus far, I’d still posit that the more underlying attraction is to a reliable store of value. Bitcoin investors may not recognise their motivation as such, but the impulse behind computer-generated ...

    The age of the B-list superhero is upon us. This weekend, DC Entertainment's "Aquaman" hit the coveted $1 billion mark in global box-office receipts after less than a month — with Marvel Cinematic Universe's "Black Panther" already topping that watermark in 2018. Taken together, those 2 films underscore how the next wave of superhero movies are being steadily reshaped by lesser-known heroes who are resonating with audiences, in the process becoming vanguards of th...

    Kanye West Pulled Out of Coachella Because the Festival Wouldn't Build Him a Giant Dome: Exclusive

    On Jan. 1, just two days before Coachella co-founder Paul Tollett was set to announce Kanye West as one of the stars headlining the desert festival, West sprung a last-minute surprise on the concert promoter. Instead of performing on the main Coachella stage, West asked Tollett to construct a giant, custom-built dome in the middle of the festival grounds. The dome would be designed by West collaborator and set designer John McGuire.

    'Beginnings Always Hide Themselves In The End': Mike Posner On Grieving, Growing And Moving On

    To say that Mike Posner's career is unpredictable is an understatement. In 2010, his debut song, "Cooler Than Me," hit the charts worldwide, and to date has sold more than two million copies in the United States. But not long after the success of that hit, Mike Posner's career stalled, so he decided to take that time to co-write with other artists like Justin Bieber, the producer Avicii and Maroon 5.

    Oh Costco, you’ve truly outdone yourself this time. The wholesale store just figured out a way to make sure you will never run out of mac and cheese again: sell it in a 27-lb. tub. You read that correctly, 27 lbs. That’s as much as about 100 baseballs, half a bale of hay or your average 3-year-old child. The Chef’s Banquet Macaroni and Cheese Storage Bucket now sold at Costco holds 180 servings of the fan-favorite meal.

    NASA’s steampunk solution to space travel

    If there’s one thing holding us back from exploring space, it’s fuel. It’s bulky. It’s heavy. And probes must carry their own supply. When that runs out, their lights go out. But what if every asteroid represented a potential pit-stop? The issue of powering craft through space won’t go away. Solar panels can provide all the electricity a space probe needs. But, if it wants to move, it must also have a propellant.

    Venezuela faces uncertain future as Maduro re-elected

    Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro is beginning another six-year term in office as the country is plagued by a crippling economic crisis and mass exodus. Violence, hunger, medicine shortages, along with mass inflation has resulted in millions leaving Venezuela resulting in one of the biggest mass displacements in the history of Latin America. Mr Maduro, 56, was re-elected in May 2018 in a poll boycotted by the majority of the opposition paired with international scepticism over the vote.

    Scientists Hack A shortcut for Photorespiration in plants, Boosting Crop Growth by 40 percent

    Increasing the yield of crop plants is a major facet of increasing food security, and one way to do this is from understanding plant biology which begins with the process of photosynthesis. Photosynthesis, popularly termed as the “green engine of the earth”, is the process by which plants convert light energy into chemical energy that is later released to fuel the plant activities such as growth. If we want to keep the planet and its growing population running in a sustainable way, we will ...
