    ‘November Rain’ becomes the first rock song to pass one billion YouTube views

    26 years ago, Guns N’ Roses released a suitably epic (and eye-wateringly expensive) video clip for the nine-minute ‘November Rain’, a single plucked from the previous year’s Use Your Illusion I album. The clip has just ticked over one-billion YouTube views, marking the first type a rock song has achieved this feat. In addition, the song is also the first ’90s video clip to do so. The closest to this latter stats are Zombie by The Cranberries, (739 million) and Smells Like Teen Spirit...

    Survival of the Richest

    Last year, I got invited to a super-deluxe private resort to deliver a keynote speech to what I assumed would be a hundred or so investment bankers. It was by far the largest fee I had ever been offered for a talk — about half my annual professor’s salary — all to deliver some insight on the subject of “the future of technology.” I’ve never liked talking about the future. The Q&A sessions always end up more like parlor games, where I’m asked to opine on the latest techn...

    Canadian cannabis workers targeted by U.S. border guards for lifetime bans

    As tensions between Canada and the U.S. have risen in recent months, a quieter, slower-burning conflict has been developing along the border: Canadians associated with the cannabis industry — even if they have never used the drug — can be banned for life from America. Despite Washington State legalizing cannabis within state boundaries, the border is under federal jurisdiction. And since cannabis, along with drugs such as heroin and cocaine, is a Schedule I substance, past or current associa...

    Canada's rape-shield law can't be used to prevent an accused from mounting defence, Ont. court rules

    Canada's so-called rape-shield law, which aims to protect sexual-assault complainants from unfair and irrelevant scrutiny of their sex lives, cannot be used to prevent an accused from mounting a reasonable defence, Ontario's top court ruled on Wednesday. As a result, the court quashed the sexual-assault conviction of a man whose lawyer was barred from cross-examining a woman on her pregnancy and ordered a new trial.

    B.C. company says it is sucking carbon from air, making fuel

    It sounds like spinning straw into gold: suck carbon dioxide from the air where it's contributing to climate change and turn it into fuel for cars, trucks and jets. A British Columbia company says in newly published research that it's doing just that — and for less than one-third the cost of other companies working on the same technology. "This isn't a PowerPoint presentation," said Steve Oldham of Carbon Engineering. "It's real."
