    EA And Star Wars Partnership Has Been Bad For Everyone - PlayStation Universe

    Partnerships between two companies are not uncommon in entertainment. A company will often allow a franchise to be used by a development studio, animation house, or publisher, coming to some sort of deal in the process. Usually, this works out well for everyone. The franchise gets to expand to new markets and demographics and the people working on it get to labor on a beloved franchise that many of them have followed for years.

    Apple loses patent case appeal, owes VirnetX $440M in FaceTime dispute

    A federal appeals court has upheld a landmark patent judgment brought by VirnetX against Apple, affirming a $440 million judgment in a years-long patent dispute. On Tuesday, the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit denied Apple's efforts to overturn a 2016 verdict that imposed $302 million in damages. That figure has since risen to encompass enhanced damages, interest, and more. Many would dub the Nevada-based VirnetX a "patent troll," as it has no meaningful source of inco...

    New satellite network will make it impossible for a commercial airplane to vanish

    For the first time, a new network of satellites will soon be able to track all commercial airplanes in real time, anywhere on the planet. Currently, planes are largely tracked by radar on the ground, which doesn't work over much of the world's oceans. The final 10 satellites were launched Friday to wrap up the $3 billion effort to replace 66 aging communication satellites, reports CBS News' Kris Van Cleave, who got an early look at the new technology.

    Texas canines contain DNA of red wolves declared extinct in 1980

    A pack of wild canines found frolicking near the beaches of the Texas Gulf Coast carries a substantial amount of red wolf genes, researchers said, a surprising discovery because the animal was declared extinct in the wild nearly 40 years ago. The finding has led wildlife biologists and others to develop a new understanding that the red wolf DNA is remarkably resilient after decades of human hunting, loss of habitat and other factors had led the animal to near decimation.

    Pound strengthens after parliamentary defeat leaves Brexit plan in tatters

    The British pound shrugged off a dramatic vote in the UK parliament that left the government's Brexit plans in tatters. Parliament on Tuesday struck down the divorce deal that Prime Minister Theresa May had negotiated with the rest of the European Union by a record margin. The defeat was expected, but the size of the loss — 432 votes to 202 — was a surprise.

According to the Chicago Tribune, one tip they received said two women were being held against their will at Kelly’s Trump Tower residence.

    The politics of fear: How fear goes tribal, allowing us to be manipulated

    Fear is arguably as old as life. It is deeply ingrained in the living organisms that have survived extinction through billions of years of evolution. Its roots are deep in our core psychological and biological being, and it is one of our most intimate feelings. Danger and war are as old as human history, and so are politics and religion.

    DNA pioneer loses honours over race claims

    Nobel Prize-winning American scientist James Watson has been stripped of his honorary titles after repeating comments about race and intelligence. In a TV programme, the pioneer in DNA studies made a reference to a view that genes cause a difference on average between blacks and whites on IQ tests. Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory said the 90-year-old scientist's remarks were "unsubstantiated and reckless".

    Advancement of artificial intelligence opens health data privacy to attack

    Advances in artificial intelligence have created new threats to the privacy of health data, a new UC Berkeley study shows. The study, led by professor Anil Aswani of the Industrial Engineering & Operations Research Department (IEOR) in the College of Engineering and his team, suggests current laws and regulations are nowhere near sufficient to keep an individual’s health status private in the face of AI development. The research was released today on JAMA Network Open.

    How Communist China Steals American Secrets and Endangers U.S. Security

    At a press conference held on Dec. 20, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) announced the prosecution of two hackers from communist China. According to the DOJ, they were members of the hacking unit APT10, which is affiliated with the Chinese regime’s Ministry of State Security (MSS). The MSS is China’s only official intelligence agency, and is relatively new given the long history of communist Chinese espionage.

    Psychologists' warning over masculinity offends the right

    Last August the American Psychological Association (APA) released its first-ever guidelines for therapists working with men and boys. Nobody paid much attention to these for several months, but they went viral this week. This was largely due to the APA condensing its academic report into a tweet explaining that the key takeaway is that traditional masculinity is harmful and socializing boys to suppress their emotions causes damage. Suddenly everyone on the internet was an armchair psychologist a...

    I'm As Certain As Ever – Bitcoin's Revolution Is Only Just Beginning

    It wasn’t 10 years ago, but more like 15, when I first saw the potential for a digital currency. I’ve been through some big up and downs in bitcoin. But today, I’m more certain than ever that the bitcoin revolution is coming. In 2004, I learned from a wealthy Korean industrialist that people were paying real-world money for digital items like weapons to use in massively multiplayer video games. The game was “Lineage,” which was taking Seoul by storm.

    Trump's Tariffs Are Siphoning $35 Billion From Consumers And Corporations

    Trump is correct in saying the U.S. government is receiving billions more in tariffs. However, he either doesn’t realize or is willing to ignore that it is the companies importing the goods that pay the tax. This results in either consumers paying higher prices or companies making less money.

    Trump administration wants to reclassify leaking nuclear waste to avoid cleaning it up, say officials

    Donald Trump's administration has been accused of trying to downplay the danger of nuclear waste so it can "abandon its responsibility to clean up their mess". A federal government plan to reclassify this waste as less dangerous has been fiercely criticised by officials in Washington state, who said the move would allow it to walk away from its responsibility to clean up millions of gallons of toxic, radioactive material.

    Scientists may have just seen birth of a black hole for the first time ever

    Scientists might have seen a black hole being born for the first time ever. A mysterious bright object that lit up the night sky could have been a black hole or neutron star at the moment of its creation, researchers say. The bright glow – spotted from Earth, 200 million light years away – appears to have been the debris of a bright star being swirled around the edge of a black hole. Scientists have been puzzled by the spectacularly bright anomaly spotted deep in space since it was spotted l...

    So-called “fake news” has renewed concerns about the prevalence and effects of misinformation in political campaigns. Given the potential for widespread dissemination of this material, we examine the individual-level characteristics associated with sharing false articles during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign. To do so, we uniquely link an original survey with respondents’ sharing activity as recorded in Facebook profile data.

    Canadian driver blames Mötley Crüe song for his speeding ticket

    A Canadian driver unsuccessfully tried to talk his way out of a speeding ticket, blaming a Mötley Crüe song as the reason for his brush with the law. Ask anyone who has been pulled over by the long arm of the law, and they’ll tell you that all forms of excuses came to their mind as the officer approached their vehicle. However, we’d wager that blaming the song on the radio for their decision to speed isn’t a very common one. As it turns out though, that’s exactly what happened in Canad...
