    The Witcher has received a lot of adulation recently. According to Business Insider, The Witcher is now the most popular show in the world—even unseating The Mandalorian from Disney Plus.

    Fight, Magic, Item: The Comfort Of Simple RPGs

    The last two games I played on my Switch were the original Dragon Quest and Breath of Fire, two early examples of the Japanese role-playing game. Today, they might seem overly simplistic: grind for levels, brute-force through a boss, repeat. These two games are, if anything, even more simplistic than their peers. And right now, that’s just what I want.

    Plant-based meat producers have had a win in the ongoing battle over what can and can’t be labeled a meat product in the United States. A federal court has temporarily blocked a law, passed in Arkansas earlier in 2019, which made it illegal for terms such as "burgers" and "sausages" to be applied to products made from plant-based materials.

    Toyota really believes hydrogen fuel cells are the future: Here’s why

    The fuel cell is the future, Toyota believes, and the Mirai is its flagship. We at Autoweek are in the middle of a year-long loan of a long-term first-gen Mirai test car, so in that sense we are driving the future, or at least what Toyota believes the future will be. With a newly styled and possibly even fun-to-drive Mirai coming next year, talk of fuel-celled buses and semis on the horizon, and with no signs of Toyota letting up on the fuel cell throttle, we sat down for a few drinks with chief...

    According to traditional knowledge, in Southeast Asia at the end of the last Ice Age, “fenua imi,” the swallowing of land, forced people to relocate to faraway atolls in a region now called Oceania.

Although many studies have been done in model organisms like mice, some researchers are now asking similar questions about the microbiota of other animals in the hopes that this could help us take better care of our furry friends.
