    Human cells can change job to fight diabetes

    Traditional cell biology textbooks say that most cells can only differentiate to the same cell type, with the same function. It seems that some of these textbooks need to be rewritten, thanks to the new results by researchers at the University of Bergen and their international partners at Université de Genève (UNIGE), Harvard Medical School, Universiteit Leiden and the Oregon Stem Cell Center (OHSU).

    Apple AirPower Finally Coming This Spring with 'Exclusive Features'

    An earlier report claimed that Apple have had three big problems developing AirPower after announcing it with great fanfare more than a year ago. First, it overheated while charging devices. Then, it suffered from "buggy inter-device communication, as well as charging activation and issues with charging speed, and overall accuracy of charge levels." And finally, charging multiple devices on the same mat was “extremely difficult” because of charging signals interference.

    Is Living Paycheck to Paycheck the New Normal for Middle-Class America? - Non Profit News

    “Millions of middle-class Americans are just one missed paycheck away from poverty,” reports Aimee Picchi for CBS News. Picchi adds that four in ten are considered “liquid-asset poor,” which is defined as lacking “enough savings to make ends meet at the poverty level for three months.” For a family of four to live at a poverty-line income for three months would cost $6,275. Again, four in ten households have cash savings that fall below this amount.

    AT&T’s misleading “5G E” indicator comes to 4G iPhones in iOS 12.2 beta

    AT&T's misleading "5G E" network indicator for 4G phones, which was rolled out to some Android smartphones last month, has now come to iPhones in a beta version of iOS 12.2. AT&T customers who installed the second beta of iOS 12.2 "are noticing their iPhones displaying a '5G E' connection to AT&T's network," MacRumors reported yesterday. 9to5Mac and other news sites provided details on the change, and people on Twitter posted screenshots of the...

    A mysterious rock at the edge of the solar system discovered by a Japanese team of researchers

    Scientists have claimed that the mysterious object is the first discovery of its kind and may be the missing link in the evolution of the early solar system. The large body, uncovered by a Japanese team of researchers, may help us learn how the solar system evolved. It is defined as a critical intermediate step in understanding how little ash clouds and ice have become the planets we know today.

    EU proposes ban on 90% of microplastic pollutants

    A wide-ranging ban on microplastics covering about 90% of pollutants has been proposed by the EU in an attempt to cut 400,000 tonnes of plastic pollution in 20 years. Every year, Europe releases a bulk amount of microplastics six times bigger than the “Great Pacific garbage patch” into the environment – the equivalent of 10bn plastic bottles. The phasing out proposed by the European Chemicals Agency (Echa) would remove 36,000 tonnes a year of “intentionally added” microplastic fibres a...

    Want to fix obesity and climate change at the same time? Make Big Food companies pay.

    A new report says food companies are pursuing profit at the expense of public and environmental health. That has to change. Obesity, climate change, and malnutrition are among the greatest global crises facing our world today. Wouldn’t it be great if there were solutions to tackle all three problems at once? That might sound far-fetched. But a new report, published Sunday in the Lancet, implores us to think about the possibility of big, systemic fixes for these interrelated scourges.

    Headlines about China’s weak growth are somewhat misleading

    America’s president knows a catchy number when he sees one. Like much of the world’s media, Donald Trump tweeted this week that China’s growth in 2018 was its slowest in nearly three decades. This, he said, ought to compel it to make a “Real Deal” on trade with America. China’s growth of 6.6% last year was indeed the weakest since 1990, and the country does want to end the trade war. But a closer look at the data shows why its leaders are less panicked than Mr Trump might think.

    Majority of Americans were not exposed to ‘fake news’ in 2016 U.S. election, Twitter study suggests

    In the run-up to the 2016 U.S. presidential election, a website calling itself “WTO5 News” posted the headline “Pope Francis shocks world, endorses Donald Trump for president.” Pope Francis never made such an endorsement, but that didn’t stop the story from being shared, liked, or commented on nearly 1 million times on social media. Another site, the “Denver Guardian,” posted a story titled “FBI agent suspected in Hillary email leaks found dead in apparent murder suicide” the d...

    Collision that helped formed the moon started life on Earth, study suggests

    A collision between Earth and another planet that helped form the moon may have also delivered key components for creating life, a study suggests. Rice University researchers believe the Earth collided with another planet roughly the size of Mars more than 4.4 billion years ago. The collision not only helped form our moon, but the planet smashing into Earth left elements such as carbon and nitrogen, called volatiles, required to form new life.

    Feeling poorer? That's because "real" wages fell last year

    The pay people take home after accounting for inflation fell 1.3 percent last year, a new analysis shows. The findings come a year after President Donald Trump signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, with his administration promising it would deliver "immediate" wage growth to workers. Yet many workers' wages aren't keeping pace with the cost of living, compensation-data company PayScale found. That's concerning because it indicates more Americans are falling behind -- despite...

    Court Rules ‘Ag-Gag’ Law Criminalizing Undercover Reporting Violates the First Amendment

    In a win for freedom of the press, a federal court this month struck down an Iowa law making it a crime to lie about your intentions when accessing an agricultural production facility. The “ag-gag” law, which was aimed at undercover journalists and activists, essentially prevented undercover investigations of the agricultural industry. In a lawsuit brought by the ACLU of Iowa, the court rightly found that the law violates the First Amendment.
