    Daniel Radcliffe Somehow Became Hollywood’s Weirdest Actor

    The thing about telling people you’re going to interview Daniel Radcliffe is that everyone, from journalists who have interviewed him to producers who have worked with him to fans who have accosted him for a selfie on the street, says that he is the nicest celebrity you will ever meet. He did nothing to refute that open secret—how lovely for Hollywood to finally have a positive one—when we met in New York City to discuss his next project, the high-concept TBS comedy series Miracle Workers.

    Between March 2015 and March 2016, a man spent a total of 357 hours being poked and prodded: sacrificing blood and urine, sweating through sprints and letting others read his journals — oh, and living on the International Space Station. The man was Scott Kelly, and with his Russian counterpart, Mikhail Kornienko, he spent a total of 340 days living in space as part of NASA's first attempt to understand how such long stints without gravity affect the human body.

    'Criminals escaping justice' due to IT system

    A police IT system is "unfit for purpose" and causing some criminals to escape justice, officers have told the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire programme. Nine forces in England and Wales use Athena, which promised to speed up the detection of crimes. But officers say it regularly crashes and is overly complicated, meaning some cases are not built in time or dropped. Developers Northgate Public Services apologised for problems "in small areas", which it says it is fixing.

    The American Dream Still Exists…if you can inherit it

    I’m in my 30’s and if not for inheritance bailing me out of my bad luck and poor life decisions in my 20’s and early 30's, I would be homeless or in public housing. Got two rental properties gifted to me and cash worth $650k all combined, which just a fraction of the total will get. Having a safety net helps cushion the blow of failure. Screwed up in life so many times.

    Solar Farms Shine a Ray of Hope on Bees and Butterflies

    The tidy rows of gleaming solar panels at Pine Gate Renewables facility in southwestern Oregon originally sat amid the squat grasses of a former cattle pasture. But in 2017 the company started sowing the 41-acre site with a colorful riot of native wildflowers. The shift was not merely aesthetic; similar projects at a growing number of solar farms around the country aim to help reverse the worrying declines in bees, butterflies and other key pollinating species observed in recent years.

    2019 could be the year of the big tech crash

    When the dot-com bubble burst in 2000 it sent significant numbers of businesses to the wall. Investment banks had been encouraging enormous investment in dot-com ventures by launching Initial Public Offers (IPOs) allowing investors and entrepreneurs to cash in on vast fortunes by selling off shares in their companies. Most of the dot-coms which listed on stock exchanges had done little more than consume vast amounts of investor cash and showed little prospect of achieving a profit. Traditional m...

    How the fossil fuel industry got the media to think climate change was debatable

    Late last year, the Trump administration released the latest national climate assessment on Black Friday in what many assumed was an attempt to bury the document. If that was the plan, it backfired, and the assessment wound up earning more coverage than it probably would have otherwise. But much of that coverage perpetuated a decades-old practice, one that has been weaponized by the fossil fuel industry: false equivalence.

    There's a Chance the Food Allergy You Think You Have Isn't Real

    For over 26 million US adults, food allergies are serious business — the merest whiff of a peanut or a bit of shellfish hidden in a stew could cause serious harm, as in the case of 11-year-old Cameron Jean-Pierre, who died this week from being in the same house as cooking seafood. But for a surprisingly large number of people, years of careful efforts to steer clear of certain foods might be unwarranted, per the results of a study released Friday in JAMA Network Open.
