    I am in Guantánamo Bay. The US Government is Starving Me to Death

    'I am asking for anyone out there to talk about what’s going on here. To ask why Trump is letting us slowly die. I don’t have many days left.".. I haven’t had food in my stomach for 23 days. The 20 September was the day they told us they would no longer feed us. They have decided to leave us to waste away and die instead.I am in so much pain every minute that I know it can’t go on much longer.

    Dow Jones technical error spreads fake news story of Google acquiring Apple

    The Dow Jones newswires had a ‘technical error’ which caused the portal to report several spurious stories including several headlines claiming Google was acquiring Apple for $9 billion, and that the deal was pre-arranged with Steve Jobs in his will. Obviously, every element of the story is made up, but it’s pretty funny to see the temporal blip on Apple’s stock price, which briefly spiked up to $158. The fake stories have now been removed by DJ.

That figure would put Essential well below market heavyweights like Apple and Samsung, which typically sell tens of millions of phones per quarter in the United States.

    Rapper raising funds to see if Earth is flat

    But US rapper B.o.B. is crowd-funding the launch of satellites to see if he can get some evidence to the contrary. The rapper, whose real name is Bobby Ray Simmons Jr, has been a vocal proponent of the Flat Earth theory - the claim the Earth is, in fact, a disc and not spherical.

    Is this the lost city of Alexander the Great?

    Alexander the Great's 'lost city' was a magical place where people drank wine and naked philosophers imparted wisdom, ancient accounts claim. Now, nearly 2,000 years after the great warrior's death, archaeologists believe the city may have finally been discovered in Iraq. Experts first noticed ancient remains in the Iraqi settlement, known as Qalatga Darband, after looking at declassified American spy footage from the 1960s.

    Best Buy is the latest victim of the retail apocalypse as pressure from Amazon sends shares plunging 10%

    Best Buy's attempts to fend off the looming retail apocalypse took a huge hit on Tuesday. At its first investor day since 2012, the company issued long-term forecasts that fell short of analyst expectations, stoking fears that mounting competition from the likes of Amazon will eat into future profits. The reaction from investors was swift and punishing, as Best Buy's stock dropped as much as 10% to $51.61, wiping out roughly $1.7 billion in market value at its lows for the day.

    Octlantis: the underwater city built by octopuses

    f animals are our other, there is nothing quite so other as the octopus. It is the alien with whom we share our planet, a coeval evolutionary life form whose slithery slipperiness and more than the requisite number of limbs (each of which contains its own “brain”) symbolise the dark mystery and fear of the deep.

    The 'war on terror' has won

    There's a playbook for committing atrocities and being absolved of them. It wasn't written by George W Bush, now a retired painter of dogs in the US state of Texas, but it was popularised and legitimised by his administration at the dawn of the 21st century. And the world today, with its multiple bloody wars on terror fought by allies and foes of Washington alike, sometimes begrudgingly together, reflects this bequeathment.
