    Ontario passes Cannabis Act, will take effect July 1, 2018

    The trillium is Ontario’s official flower and marijuana could now be considered the province’s official weed with the passage of the Cannabis Act. Liberals and New Democrats voted 63 to 27 in favour of the legislation Tuesday with the Progressive Conservatives opposed as the province now begins work in earnest on how to split pot tax revenues with municipalities. The new law gives Queen’s Park a monopoly on recreational marijuana when the federal government’s legalization takes effect on July 1.

    Ford Now Plans to Move Production of Electric SUVs From Michigan to Mexico

    Ford Motor Co. is changing gears again in Mexico, shifting planned production of a small electric-powered sport utility vehicle to a plant south of the border instead of a Michigan factory. Sending the electric vehicle to Mexico, where labor costs are lower, will help the business case for the costly model. It also risks raising the ire of President Donald Trump, who had been sharply critical of an earlier plan by Ford to build a small car factory in Mexico that the company ultimately canceled.

    Matt Lauer’s Roast: Tom Cruise, Katie Couric, and 3 Hours of Dick Jokes

    Just got back from the Hilton in midtown after three hours of dick and pussy jokes from some of the biggest stars of TV and film. Over plates of rubbery chicken, with Howard Stern in the audience, with Aretha Franklin doing the most amazing rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner ever (and while playing the piano herself), and with Abe Vigoda sitting on the dais and managing to stay somewhat alive, the afternoon’s Friar’s Roast did not disappoint.

    HDR Video Playback Support is coming to Chrome for Android

    The proliferation of High Dynamic Range (HDR) video is the next step in improving video quality for all. HDR significantly improves the luminosity range and widens the color space, resulting in greater contrast and color accuracy. Android officially supports HDR playback support starting in Android 7.0 Nougat, though it’s up to individual devices to support a high color depth format and up to individual applications to support extracting HDR metadata from videos. It also requires a compatible ...

    Bird gets lost at sea, accidentally spawns an entire new species on a remote island

    If you get lost at sea and find yourself on an island you’d probably try to build a fire, pile some sticks and stones into a makeshift home and maybe even try to signal for help. When one misguided bird found himself in the same situation, he didn’t wallow in his own self pity; he created his own entirely new species. Over the past 36 years, scientists have been closely studying the incredible story of an entirely new bird species that seemingly came out of nowhere, and it all started with o...

    AT&T and Comcast lawsuit has nullified a city’s broadband competition law

    AT&T and Comcast have convinced a federal judge to nullify an ordinance that was designed to bring more broadband competition to Nashville, Tennessee. The Nashville Metro Council last year passed a "One Touch Make Ready" rule that gives Google Fiber or other new ISPs faster access to utility poles. The ordinance lets a single company make all of the necessary wire adjustments on utility poles itself, instead of having to wait for incumbent providers like AT&T and Comcast to sen...

    He spent 39 years behind bars for two murders he didn't commit. Gov. Jerry Brown just pardoned him

    At the time, police said it was the most heinous crime Simi Valley had ever seen. A young mother, Rhonda Wicht, was beaten, raped and strangled with a macrame rope in her apartment. Her 4-year-old son, Donald, was smothered in his bed, presumably because he might have identified his mother's killer.

    This man was living on $200 a month when he sold a 'worthless' blanket for $1.5 million

    Loren Krytzer walked into the California auction room broke and unemployed, surviving on disability checks. Seventy-seven seconds later, he walked out a millionaire — all thanks to a blanket. "Everybody loves a rags to riches story," laughs Krytzer. His life changed forever when he discovered that a forgotten old family heirloom, a Navajo blanket from the 1800s that had been sitting in his closet for seven years, was actually worth $1.5 million. And just in time, too. He had been scr...

    Humans just tried to communicate with aliens. This is what will happen if they reply, according to scientists

    Aliens living around Luyten’s star will hear from humans in about 12 years’ time – if they exist. Scientists have beamed a message toward the GJ 273 system, 12 light years away, where one of the two planets orbiting the red dwarf sun is thought to be within its habitable zone. That means it may be capable of hosting life and, if it does, we might hear back in 2042.
