    Fastest growing religion in Minnesota, the nation, is 'none'

    The men and women relaxing on yoga mats recently at a Minneapolis meditation center didn’t know it, but most belonged to the fastest-growing religion in America — none at all. They included a former Lutheran who left the church because the Bible clashed with science, a former Catholic who became leery of its teachings, a former Baptist uninspired by Sunday services, a young man raised with no religion.

    Sean Bean is excited to see how he dies in Hitman 2

    For Hitman 2, developer IO Interactive is once again bringing back “elusive targets,” the tough-to-assassinate characters that are only available for a limited time, and you only have one chance to kill them. If you fail, you don’t get another shot. Things are starting out with a bang for the sequel: the first elusive target in Hitman 2 will be played by none other than Sean Bean, an actor who is notorious for regularly dying in film and TV roles.

    Al Gore Says Climate Change Is ‘the Biggest Challenge We’ve Ever Faced’

    Al Gore, the former U.S. Vice President and co-founder of Generation Investment Management, continues to ring the alarm that climate change and environmental damage is a global emergency. “This is the biggest challenge we’ve ever faced,” Gore said at the Summit LA18 festival. “Nuclear war is the only one in the same category, and we’ve held that at bay pretty successfully. This is an existential threat to our civilization and potentially our species.”

    Finland and Norway are telling airline pilots to be ready to fly without GPS, and some think Russia is up to something

    Disruptions to Global Positioning System signals have been reported in northern Norway and Finland this month, overlapping with the final days of NATO’s exercise Trident Juncture, a massive military exercise that has drawn Russia’s ire. A press officer for Widerøe, a Norway-based airline operating in the Nordics, told The Barents Observer at the beginning of November that pilots reported the loss of GPS...

    The next major Overwatch update will require a full reinstall

    Blizzard have announced that for the game’s next major update, players will actually have to fully reinstall Overwatch. The next big patch is expected to introduce new hero Ashe to the live servers, as she’s currently being tested on the PTR. It sounds like the next update will do more than that, however. Blizzard is apparently making “fundamental changes” so significant that they can’t simply be patched over the game but will require a full reinstall to take effect.

    How NASA Will Use Robots to Create Rocket Fuel From Martian Soil

    The year is 2038. After 18 months living and working on the surface of Mars, a crew of six explorers boards a deep-space transport rocket and leaves for Earth. No humans are staying behind, but work goes on without them: Autonomous robots will keep running a mining and chemical-synthesis plant they’d started years before this first crewed mission ever set foot on the planet. The plant produces water, oxygen, and rocket fuel using local resources, and it will methodically build up all the neces...

    Can Bitcoin Be Fixed?

    The birthing of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies has unleashed the next wave of innovation in the technology and fintech sectors but we are not quite there…yet. Bitcoin has just turned 10 years old. 10 years have elapsed since the 2008 financial crisis took hold of the global financial system. Satoshi had indicated that the genesis block and the birth of Bitcoin was a result of people’s loss of faith in the current financial system and the status quo.

    CDC urging people to stop using dead bats as Halloween decorations

    The Centers for Disease Control is sending a bizarre new warning -- urging people to stop using dead bats as Halloween decorations. The national Fish & Wildlife Service says they're seizing illegal dead bats shipped into the U. S. Most of the time the spooky specimens are fully taxidermied. People use them as wall hangings or outdoor decor. The biggest problem? Dead bats can carry disease.

    Inside NASA's hunt for exoplanets just like Earth

    Looking around at Earth's neighbors, it's fair to say we're on the most livable planet in our solar system. (Lift your game, Mars.) But while Earth seems unique in being able to support life, it's probably not the only planet in the universe with that distinction. There are other planets, known as exoplanets, which are rocky orbs like ours and which orbit their own stars in other solar systems. If those planets exist in the so-called Goldilocks zone -- the orbital distance ar...

    Why does one California county sheriff have the highest rate of stingray use?

    The Electronic Frontier Foundation has sued the San Bernardino County sheriff over what the advocacy group says is a failure of the law enforcement agency to adequately release public records relating to its use of cell-site simulators, or "stingrays." The lawsuit, Electronic Frontier Foundation v. County of San Bernardino et al., which was filed in county court on Tuesday, explains how a 2015 state law requires that law enforcement agencies in most cases seek a warrant to use the surv...

    Climate change may force 200,000 people in Bangladesh to migrate

    Worsening weather conditions are driving farmers in Bangladesh out of their homes. Nearly 200,000 coastal residents will be forced to migrate to inland areas to find alternative livelihoods, according to a recent study. This will be caused by increased inundation and saline contamination of the soil, hitting crop production and incomes, said the study by Valerie Mueller, a research fellow at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), and Joyce Chen, associate professor at Ohio Sta...

    Why Governments will trust Bitcoin and no other cryptocurrency ever

    The main intention behind Satoshi Nakamoto’s initiative was to design and radicalize a currency which wouldn’t be under the jurisdiction of any form of government or a specific financial institution. Even though Bitcoin has been left behind by various cryptocurrencies in terms of attributes like transaction fees and confirmation time, it has managed to remain as the largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization since a very long time. This might be due to the precise reason that Bitcoin is...
