    John McCain, a Maverick We Can Learn From

    John McCain’s most courageous moment arguably did not come when he was near death as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam.

    The European Commission, fresh off of handing Google a record $5 billion antitrust fine, is keeping a busy summer schedule by announcing four more fines for tech companies today. Publicized in Brussels today, the penalties affect Asus, the Denon and Marantz partnership, Philips, and Pioneer.

    Welcome to the Meghalayan Age

    The official history of Earth has a new chapter - and we are in it. Geologists have classified the last 4,200 years as being a distinct age in the story of our planet. They are calling it the Meghalayan Age, the onset of which was marked by a mega-drought that crushed a number of civilisations worldwide. The International Chronostratigraphic Chart, the famous diagram depicting the timeline for Earth's history (seen on many classroom walls) will be updated.
