    California just became the first state to force pet stores to sell rescue animals only

    California has become the first US state to ban the sale of animals from puppy mills. A new law signed on Friday means that pet stores are required to work with animal shelters or rescue operations if they want to sell dogs, cats or rabbits. Despite 36 cities across the state, including Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego, already having bans on mass breeding this is a landmark move in the campaign against large-scale operations that breed dogs for profit.

    Salt Lake police, nurses group develop new policy for hospital interactions

    The Salt Lake City law enforcement officers will be following new written policies for dealing with hospitals across the valley, the police chief said Thursday. The new procedures are a direct response to a July 26 incident when a Salt Lake police officer roughly arrested University of Utah Hospital nurse Alex Wubbels after she refused to draw blood from an unconscious patient without a warrant.

    Mattis tells Army to "be ready" on North Korea military options

    Defense Secretary James Mattis says the U.S. Army "must stand ready" in the face of continued provocations by the North Korean regime. While delivering the keynote address at the Association of the U.S. Army's annual meeting on Monday, Mattis outlined the current strategy in North Korea for the U.S. military, saying "it is right now diplomatically led, economic sanctioned, buttressed effort to try to turn North Korea off its path." He conceded, however, that "neithe...

    Cash is already pretty much dead in China as the country lives the future with mobile pay

    Mobile pay is taking China by storm and changing daily commerce. The transformation of a society limited to bills denominated in 100 yuan ($15) or less into one where QR payment codes abound was by far the biggest change in mainland China since my last visit four years ago. When eating out or shopping with local friends, they paid by scanning a QR code on the restaurant table or by showing a similar code on their smartphones to the store clerk.

    Madagascar experiencing rapid spread of disease known as the Black Death in Middle Ages

    Elisah Raharimalala and her daughter wear face masks as they make their way around the capital of Madagascar, Antananarivo, a city of more than a million people. They're wearing the mouth and nose coverings to protect themselves not from air pollution or the common cold but from the plague, a disease that in the West is more commonly associated with the Middle Ages.

    You can always count on the crew of the International Space Station to harness technology to bring us up to the heavens with them. Back in July, they uploaded enough footage to map the entire station out on Google Streetview. Today, the crew uploaded the first spacewalk recorded in 360-degree video.

    Genes that separate humans from fruit flies found

    Genes which determine animal complexity – or what makes humans so much more complex than a fruit fly or a sea urchin – have been identified for the first time. The secret mechanism for how a cell in one animal can be significantly more complex than a similar cell in another animal appears to be due to proteins and their ability to control events in a cell’s nucleus.

    Children prefer to read books on paper rather than screens

    There is a common perception that children are more likely to read if it is on a device such as an iPad or Kindles. But research shows that this is not necessarily the case. In a study of children in Year 4 and 6, those who had regular access to devices with eReading capability (such as Kindles, iPads and mobile phones) did not tend to use their devices for reading - and this was the case even when they were daily book readers.

    When It’s Good to Be Antisocial

    Bees are emblems of social complexity. Their honeycombs—intricate lattices dripping with food—house bustling hive members carrying out carefully orchestrated duties like defending against predators and coordinating resource collection. Much of our own success is due to this sort of division of labor. Clearly, in the animal kingdom, it pays to be social: Certain neurons make us resent being alone. You could be forgiven for assuming that complex social organization is the—or at least a—pin...

    Mum catches nanny drinking her breast milk who gives strange explanation why

    What would you do if you caught someone else drinking your breast milk? Chances are it's a question you've never asked yourself, probably because it makes you feel a little...odd. Full of antibacterial and antiviral properties and containing all the nutrients infants need, breast milk is wonderful stuff indeed. But it's not really for adults , is it?

    Cloudflare CEO: DDoS Attacks Will Now Be ‘Something You Only Read About In The History Books’

    Cloudflare, a major internet security firm, is on a mission to render distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks useless. The company announced Monday that every customer—including those who only use its free services—will receive a new feature called Unmetered Mitigation, which protects against every DDoS attack, regardless of its size.

    The iPhones 8

    I was tempted to write this review under the conceit that there was no such thing as the iPhone X. Just don’t even mention the iPhone X, and consider the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus as though they were the only two new phones coming from Apple this year. That conceit would work, insofar as the iPhones 8 are excellent year-over-year upgrades compared to their iPhone 7 counterparts.

    Alliance of car manufacturers takes on Uber with its own driverless cab service

    Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi, working together as Alliance 2022, have announced a six year project that includes becoming an industry leader in the field of self-driving ride sharing vehicles. The plan is very light on actual details of how it plans on achieving this; it says that it plans to release 12 electric cars, and 40 vehicles capable of autonomous driving by 2022 but doesn’t go into much detail. Still, it’s interesting to see such major manufacturers taking steps towards an autonom...

    Opinion: Apple’s take on the ‘bezel-less’ UI is unintuitive, and Android is far better suited for it

    Yesterday Apple announced its latest crop of products, and as has been rumored for quite a while, that included the debut of the iPhone X. The X is the biggest step forward in iPhone design in a long time, but it certainly comes with its fair share of compromises. One of those is the lack of a fingerprint sensor which, speaking truthfully, is already an absolute deal breaker for me. But there’s also a new way of navigating the phone — mostly through gestures.

    Christian Bale explains weight gain: 'I've just been eating a lot of pies'

    Christian Bale has been dedicated and disciplined in controlling his weight for film roles, famously losing 65 pounds and eating only an apple and a can of tuna a day for The Machinist, bulking up his muscle mass for American Psycho and the Dark Knight films, and sporting a pot belly in American Hustle. The actor looks almost unrecognisable at the moment, as he gains weight to play Vice President Dick Cheney upcoming biopic Backseat.
