    U.S. Navy swapping $38,000 periscope joysticks for $30 Xbox controllers on high-tech submarines

    OK, so my 10-year-old kid could board an advanced U.S. Navy submarine and operate the periscope? That seems to be the pretty cool assumption based on the fact that sailors are now using Xbox 360 controllers to perform functions aboard some vessels. The Virginian-Pilot newspaper reported that the Microsoft game-console controllers have replaced the helicopter-style stick used to control the periscope on Virginia-class submarines.

    Cancer treatment: sorting the good news from the hype

    very news story about cancer research should come with a health warning: believe the hope, but not the hype. Good headlines are quick and catchy, good science is steady steps taken on a complicated issue over a long time. If a new treatment is still being researched, it could be metaphorical miles and actual years away from getting into the hands or bodies of patients.

    Comcast, Verizon, AT&T CEOs Refuse to Testify on Net Neutrality

    So we've noted a few times how Verizon, AT&T, Comcast and Charter lobbyists have not only been lobbying the FCC to kill popular net neutrality protections, but they're also lobbying for a new net neutrality law. Why would they kill one set of rules only to push for the creation of another? These ISPs know the current cash-compromised Congress is so dysfunctional that such a law either won't happen, or if it does will be written by ISP lobbyists intent on making it as flimsy as...

    Homeowners faced an Airbnb nightmare as renters left them facing huge fines, angry neighbors

    Drew Grewal faced fines of nearly half a million dollars because his Miami Beach home was being listed illegally on Airbnb. In Miami Beach — as in New York, San Diego and many other U.S. cities — short-term rentals of the kind facilitated by Airbnb, VRBO, Tripadvisor and others are strictly limited. Laws, fees and taxes vary regionally, but fines for violations are typically high. In Miami Beach, the fines run at $20,000 for a first violation and rise from there.

    Anyone who shouts 'Allahu Akbar' in popular tourist city to be shot by snipers

    Venice's right-wing mayor has ordered cops to shoot ANYONE who shouts 'Allahu Akbar' - rather than risk a terror attack. The phrase in Arabic for 'God is greatest' has been shouted in multiple terrorist incidents across the continent. The Times reports that Italian mayor Luigi Brugnaro claimed that his city Venice was safer than Barcelona - where 14 people died being run down by a van last week.

    Enormous Near-Earth Asteroid 'Florence' Will Safely Fly by Earth Sept. 1

    An asteroid named Florence that will safely sweep past Earth on Sept. 1 is the largest object to give our planet a close shave since NASA began tracking these types of near-Earth asteroids, an agency official said. The space rock measures 2.7 miles (4.4 kilometers) across. It will pass by Earth at a safe distance of 4.4 million miles (7 million kilometers), or nearly 18 times the distance between Earth and the moon.

    Coal in decline: an energy industry on life support

    or a glimpse into the future of coal power in Australia, go west. The country’s last major investment in coal-fired electricity was in Western Australia in 2009, when Colin Barnett’s state government announced a major refurbishment of the Muja AB station about 200km south of Perth, far from the gaze of the east coast political-media class.

    Stop hiding 47,000 net neutrality complaints, advocates tell FCC chair

    The Federal Communications Commission is being pressured to release the text of 47,000 net neutrality complaints before going through with Chairman Ajit Pai's plan to eliminate net neutrality rules. The FCC has refused to release the text of most neutrality complaints despite a Freedom of Information Act (FoIA) request that asked for all complaints filed since June 2015. The FCC has provided 1,000 complaints to the National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC), which filed the public records req...

    Scientists create the first mutant ants

    Despite what you might've seen in 1950s monster movies, it's difficult to raise mutant ants. For years biologists have altered the genetics of organisms as varied as mice and rice. Mutant fruit flies are a laboratory staple. But ants' complex life cycle hampered efforts to grow genetically engineered ants — until now.
