    If you’d bought $1,000 of Bitcoin in 2010, you’d be worth $35M

    The price of Bitcoin, the most popular digital crytpo-currency, has skyrocketed this year. According to Coindesk, bitcoins are currently trading for $2,483 per coin. The price is an all-time record, and the remarkable valuation blows earlier price spikes out of the water. Bitcoins have more than doubled since the beginning of 2017, when they hovered around $1,000 per coin. Bitcoin broke the $2,000-per-coin barrier on Saturday.

    Norway's 'Doomsday' Seed Vault Flooded by Melting Permafrost

    A seed vault in the Arctic that's supposed to preserve the world's food supply for hundreds of years was partially flooded in recent months, and one of the reasons it was built in the first place is believed to be the culprit. The Global Seed Vault, located on Norway's Spitsbergen Island, took on water during the winter because of melting permafrost, according to the Guardian. As the Arctic continues to set record highs, the permafrost was pushed above the melting point, and water...

    California Electric Car Sales Up 91% (1st Quarter)

    The data is in. It has been sliced and diced six ways to Sunday and now it can be told. EV sales in California during the first quarter of 2017 were up 91% compared to the same quarter a year ago. Industry observers give much of the credit to the Chevy Bolt, the first all-electric car from General Motors that went on sale in the Golden State last December. 2,735 Californians opted for the Bolt in the first quarter of the year.

    Creationist geologist sues U.S. park service after it rejects request to collect samples in Grand Canyon

    The Interior Department is facing a lawsuit from a Christian geologist who claims he was not allowed to collect rocks from Grand Canyon National Park because of his creationist beliefs. In the suit filed earlier this month, the Australian geologist, Andrew Snelling, says that religious discrimination was behind the National Park Service's (NRS's) decision to deny him a permit to gather samples from four locations in the park.

    Saudi Arabia, UAE pledge $100 million to ethically questionable fund proposed by Ivanka Trump

    Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have pledged $100 million to the World Bank’s Women Entrepreneurs Fund, an initiative proposed by first daughter and senior White House adviser Ivanka Trump. The fund, which was first announced in April, has already raised serious legal and ethical questions about how a White House adviser can both shape foreign policy and actively solicit donations from foreign countries for the fund.

    Black man will spend six years in US prison despite jury finding him 'not guilty'

    A black man who was found not guilty of armed robbery will still serve up to seven years behind bars after a judge ruled he had breached the rules of his probation sentence for another crime.  Ramad Chatman handed himself in to police when he found out he was a suspect for an armed robbery at a convenience store in his hometown of Georgia in July 2014.

    The odds of a drug having a significant safety issue after winning FDA approval are nearly 1 in 3, study finds

    Almost one-third of new drugs approved by U.S. regulators over a decade ended up years later with warnings about unexpected — sometimes life-threatening — side effects or complications, according to a new analysis in the Journal of the American Medical Assn. Researchers looked at potential problems that cropped up during the routine monitoring that's done once a medicine has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration and is on the market. The results, published Tuesday, covered a...

    Tim Cook’s refusal to help FBI hack iPhone is validated by ‘WannaCry’ ransomware attack

    The proliferation of the WannaCry ransomware last week unequivocally justifies Apple’s steadfast refusal to help the FBI break into an iPhone 5c used by one of the San Bernardino terrorists. As a quick refresher, the FBI last year wanted Apple engineers to create a brand new version of iOS that would allow them to skirt around iOS security measures.

    The Way We Discipline Low-Income Kids Only Makes Their Problems Worse

    At the beginning of this school year, Ahmed Mohamed, a freshman at MacArthur High School in Irving, Texas, brought a makeshift clock to school to impress his teachers—and ended up in handcuffs. His teachers, it seemed, thought it could be a bomb, and Mohamed was interrogated without his parents present for hours. While the incident sparked outrage over Islamophobia and racial profiling (partially due to Irving’s earlier public embarrassments), it also revealed that Mohamed was far from an ou...

    Europe's Famed Bog Bodies Are Starting to Reveal Their Secrets

    If you’re looking for the middle of nowhere, the Bjaeldskovdal bog is a good place to start. It lies six miles outside the small town of Silkeborg in the middle of Denmark’s flat, sparse Jutland peninsula. The bog itself is little more than a spongy carpet of moss, with a few sad trees poking out. An ethereal stillness hangs over it. A child would put it more simply: This place is really spooky.

    Amazon trounces rivals in battle of the shopping 'bots'

    Earlier this year, engineers at Wal-Mart Stores Inc (WMT.N) who track rivals' prices online got a rude surprise: the technology they were using to check Amazon.com several million times a day suddenly stopped working. Losing access to Amazon.com Inc's (AMZN.O) data was no small matter. Like most big retailers, Wal-Mart relies on computer programs that scan prices on competitors' websites so it can adjust its listings accordingly. A difference of even 50 cents can mean losing a sal...

    The Gut’s Microbiome Changes Rapidly with Diet

    You are what you eat, and so are the bacteria that live in your gut. Microbiologists have known for some time that different diets create different gut flora, but previous research has focused on mice instead of humans, leaving the actual relationship between our food and our stomach bacteria unclear. A new study, published Wednesday in Nature, indicates that these changes can happen incredibly fast in the human gut—within three or four days of a big shift in what you eat.

    Turning Plastic to Oil, U.K. Startup Sees Money in Saving Oceans

    At a garbage dump about 80 miles west of London, Adrian Griffiths is testing an invention he’s confident will save the world’s oceans from choking in plastic waste. And earn him millions. His machine, about the size of a tennis court, churns all sorts of petroleum-based products -- cling wrap, polyester clothing, carpets, electronics -- back into oil. It takes less than a second and the resulting fuel, called Plaxx, can be used to make plastic again or power ship engines.

    When Medieval Monks Couldn’t Cure the Plague, They Launched a Luxe Skincare Line

    Long before the modern deluge of organic soaps, herbal remedies, juice cleanses, and lifestyle brands like Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOP, the mindful crowd had a medieval-era source for all-natural panaceas: the Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella. Roughly translated as the “Perfume-Pharmaceutical Workshop of New Saint Mary’s Church,” this world-renowned cosmetics and pharmaceutical company began its illustrious life as a community health clinic at a 13th-century Florentine monastery.

    United Airlines Refuses To Provide Disabled Passenger Wheelchair Resulting in Leg Fracture

    Jarlene Cordonnier had been looking forward to a family trip from Sacramento to Orlando on December 8, 2016. There were 12 family members traveling including her adult sons, daughters-in-law, and grandchildren. The flight that day was on United Airlines (“United”) and included a layover and plane change in Houston. Because Ms. Cordonnier is partially paralyzed from a prior stroke and requires mobility assistance devices, extra planning was required for the trip.
