    Baby boomers share nearly 7 times as many 'fake news' articles on Facebook as adults under 30, new study finds

    A recently published study found that Facebook users over 65 years old were far more likely than other adults to share disinformation on social media. Researchers at both Princeton and New York University concluded that though the practice of spreading so-called fake news was rare overall, a person's likelihood of sharing it correlated more strongly with age than it did education, sex, or political views.

    We'll be eating the first Crispr'd foods within 5 years, according to a geneticist who helped invent the blockbuster gene-editing tool

    While ethicists debate the applications of blockbuster gene-editing tool Crispr in human healthcare, an inventor of the tool believes it has a more immediate application: improving our food. "I think in the next five years the most profound thing we'll see in terms of Crispr's effects on people's everyday lives will be in the agricultural sector," Jennifer Doudna, the University of California Berkeley geneticist who unearthed Crispr in early experiments with bacteria in ...

    Sarah Huckabee Sanders acts like a good Christian. That’s fake news.

    Sarah Huckabee Sanders, president Donald Trump’s combative press secretary, came under public scrutiny this week for official lying. Such bald-faced deceit may be appallingly routine in this administration, but its import is different for Sanders, an aggressively committed evangelical Christian for whom such disingenuity should be scripturally abhorrent.

    Earliest life may have arisen in ponds, not oceans

    Primitive ponds may have provided a suitable environment for brewing up Earth’s first life forms, more so than oceans, a new MIT study finds. Researchers report that shallow bodies of water, on the order of 10 centimeters deep, could have held high concentrations of what many scientists believe to be a key ingredient for jump-starting life on Earth: nitrogen.

    Nuclear Power Can Save the World

    As young people rightly demand real solutions to climate change, the question is not what to do — eliminate fossil fuels by 2050 — but how. Beyond decarbonizing today’s electric grid, we must use clean electricity to replace fossil fuels in transportation, industry and heating. We must provide for the fast-growing energy needs of poorer countries and extend the grid to a billion people who now lack electricity. And still more electricity will be needed to remove excess carbon dioxide from ...

    Senate Republicans can’t explain why they keep blocking a resolution calling for the release of the Mueller report

    Senate Republicans say they want “transparency” around the Mueller report — but they keep rejecting a measure that would actually offer it. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) on Thursday, once again, blocked a resolution pushing for the public release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. It’s the fifth time Republicans have rejected Democratic efforts to consider the resolution — even as multiple news reports this week questioned how comprehensive Attorney General Bill Barr’s summary of ...

    Germany Just Shut Down Its Last Fur Farm

    According to PETA, the farmer shut down ahead of the 2022 deadline as he was struggling under government pressure and frequent, unannounced inspections. He said he also felt the weight of activist pressures — PETA has been campaigning strongly in the country for more than two decades. Germany banned fur farming in 2017 — the country gave farmers a five-year transition period to fully phase out of the industry. PETA credits its heavy campaigning efforts, petitions, protests, and anti-fur ads ...

    Aquaculture Doesn’t Reduce Pressure on Wild Fish

    Aquaculture is often promoted as a sustainable alternative to catching wild fish—a way to reduce pressure on overexploited stocks while providing affordable and necessary protein for people’s diets. It’s an argument put forward by major international organizations like the World Bank and the intergovernmental Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. But it’s an argument that doesn’t hold up, according to new research.
