    Washington bill would make it legal to compost human remains into soil

    Would you prefer to be cremated or buried in a casket? Washington might give residents an additional option if it becomes the first US state to legalize an unusual end-of-life practice -- composting human remains. "Recomposting" -- which advertises as more environmentally friendly than traditional funeral practices -- is a process where a human body is quickly decomposed using heat-loving microbes and beneficial bacteria.

    Forget the iPhone Shortfall. Apple's All About Services Now

    Only a few months ago, Apple was crowned the first company to be valued at more than $1 trillion. Now, in the wake of a surprise profit warning, its entire future is being questioned. Both reactions are extreme. A victory lap wasn’t warranted last summer, nor is a eulogy now. The company is at an inflection point. Apple, like others before it, is attempting to navigate the shift. It’s fair to wonder if it can; it’s premature to conclude that it can’t.

    Australians care if politicians tell lies, but people in the US don’t

    The US may have entered a “post-truth” era, but Australia has not. Researchers who asked people in the US their views on politicians who frequently bend the truth found that fact-checking had little impact, whereas for Australians it did change their political opinions. The findings in Australia are positive and encouraging, says team member Stephan Lewandowsky of the University of Bristol in the UK. They suggest fact-checking is a genuine counter to politicians who regularly make false stat...

    Christians and Jews overrepresented in new U.S. Congress — nonreligious most underrepresented

    More than 6 percent of the new Congress is Jewish, with 34 Jews among the total of 535 lawmakers in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate. Jews make up 2 percent of the U.S. population, so Congress as a whole is more than thrice as Jewish as the country in general, according to a new study by the Pew Research Center on religion in the new Congress, which was inaugurated Thursday.

    Why can’t Hollywood get video game movies right?

    With the news of the new Sonic movie everyone’s worried whether it will work, given Hollywood’s track record of making our beloved games into movies. They never seem to get it quite right even though there have been loads from Super Mario Bros. to Silent Hill, Street Fighter, and more. It seems no matter what they turn their hands to the movie is flop, for example Max Payne could have easily worked if just followed the game.

    Why we are fascinated by miniature books

    It is known as the “fly’s eye Dante”: an 1878 edition of the Divine Comedy which is so small – just 11/4 by 13/4 inches – that it is said to have taken 11 years to print, and to have damaged the eyes of both its compositor and corrector. Bound in red leather embossed with gold, the world’s smallest edition of Dante’s classic poem, which was printed by the Salmin Brothers in Padua, is one of almost 50 officially designated miniature books housed in the London Library.

    ‘True Detective’ Review: Season 3 Gets Back to Basics — and Gets Good Again

    Let’s get this out of the way: “True Detective” Season 3 is good. Whether or not you believe the first season to be an untouchable classic or an overrated but well-acted cop show, Nic Pizzolatto’s new episodes are a big step up from a second season as muddled and meaningless as that water stain above Vince Vaughn’s bed. With strong performances all-around — and a flat-out remarkable turn from Mahershala Ali — HBO’s third season benefits from reliable genre elements, a compelling ...

    Valve’s Artifact Ended 2018 Outside Steam’s Top 100 Most Played Games

    It became clear that Valve was going to have a hard time selling Artifact when fans were left disgruntled (to say the least) by the Dota card game’s reveal at The International 2017. Similar to Blizzard’s Diablo Immortal blunder at Blizzcon a couple months ago, Valve’s decision to try and monetize a $19.99 card game and ignore the demand to create sequels to their best-selling franchises Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, and Portal isn’t paying off for the popular publisher.

    Scientists Find the 'Missing' Dark Matter from the Early Universe

    Dark matter, it seems, has been clinging to galaxies for a very long time. Most galaxies that existed 10 billion years ago had about as much dark matter as galaxies do today, contradicting earlier studies that suggested less dark matter lurked around galaxies in the early universe.
