    'Hi, I'm Rosa, I'm 14, and I'm worried for my generation'

    "My name is Rosa Anders. I’m 14 years old and I am afraid for my generation. I am afraid of the environmental chaos climate change will bring and how it will impact me and my peers' lives. I’m just a teenager so I don’t have the solutions to these major world problems, but I believe part of it lies in individual actions.

    OnePlus Wants To Give Us Smaller Phones At Last

    We are swamped by oversized phones. But if OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has his way, we may finally get a great phone that is not the size of a surfboard for hamsters. According to PCMag, Lau sees a lot of demand for smaller phones. But the fact is that there are no products to satisfy it. After the death of the iPhone SE, only Sony is producing “compact” phones that are neither that compact nor irresistible, despite being decent machines.

    Exclusive: Controversial skeleton may be a new species of early human

    More than twenty years after it was first discovered, an analysis of a remarkable skeleton discovered in South Africa has finally been published – and the specimen suggests we may need to add a new species to the family tree of early human ancestors. The analysis also found evidence that the species was evolving to become better at striding on two legs, helping us to understand when our lineage first became bipedal. The specimen, nicknamed “Little Foot”, is a type of Australopithecus, the ...

    As Churches and Malls Close, Life As We Know It Grows Uncertain

    And, ironically, closed Christian churches are sometimes repurposed into sanctuaries of worship for other faiths, like Islam, which, unlike Christianity, is growing in the U.S. Welcome to the 21st century’s brave new world of brick-and-mortar retailing of God and mammon.

    Lost jobs, shrinking growth, and rotting crops — here are the ways Trump's trade war is hurting America

    Eight months on from the opening salvos of President Donald Trump's trade war, and the real-world impacts are starting to be felt across the globe. The US, which the trade war was ostensibly launched to protect, looks as if it is likely to be the worst affected, with some forecasters suggesting that as much as 1 percentage point could be knocked off economic growth in the coming years.

    Elon Musk: Humans must merge with machines

    Elon Musk, the inventor and CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, told "Axios on HBO" that humans must merge with machines to overcome the “existential threat” of artificial intelligence. The big picture: Musk said artificial intelligence is "just digital intelligence. And as the algorithms and the hardware improve, that digital intelligence will exceed biological intelligence by a substantial margin. It's obvious." And he said we're way behind: "We're like childre...

    A.I. Can Predict Alzheimer's Years Before Diagnosis

    A new study published in Radiology showed that a deep learning model predicted Alzheimer’s disease with 82% specificity and 100% sensitivity about 6 years before diagnosis by using fluorine 18 fluorodeoxyglucose PET imaging studies of the brain. According to the study published in the journal Radiology, artificial intelligence can help predict Alzheimer’s disease, a disease where early diagnosis can be pivotal for the introduction of treatments and interventions.

    Why the Irish Exit Is a Mark of High Moral Character

    The person who leaves the party without telling his friends is an asshole, right? Well, not necessarily. And it took me a while to realize this. Personally, the Irish exit didn't flash its brilliance until I experienced my first post-college networking event -- that distinct void where bleak reality meets stark desperation. Young men wore ill-fitting navy suits instead of jeans to look older. Old men wore scrotum-hugging skinny jeans instead of suits to look younger.

    Rich People Pay for Private Firefighters While the Rest of Us Burn

    At least 44 people have been killed in California a result of the wildfires that have burned more than 100,000 acres of land in the state. The most vulnerable populations, including the elderly and people with disabilities, are at the highest risk of perishing in the fires, which were made more likely by climate change that exacerbated dryness and tinder availability in fire-prone areas.

    ‘Bionic mushrooms’ that generate electricity created by scientists

    A regular shop-bought mushroom has been turned into an electricity generator in a process scientists hope will one day be used to power devices. The “bionic mushroom” was covered with bacteria capable of producing electricity and strands of graphene that collected the current. Shining a light on the structure activated the bacteria’s ability to photosynthesise, and as the cells harvested this glow they generated a small amount of electricity known as a “photocurrent”.
