    How trees secretly talk to each other

    Trees talk and share resources right under our feet, using a fungal network nicknamed the "Wood Wide Web". Some plants use the system to support their offspring, while others hijack it to sabotage their rivals.

    Andrew Yang is running for president in 2020. Here's everything we know about the candidate and how he stacks up against the competition.

    Based on a recurring series of national surveys we conduct, we can figure out who the other candidates competing in Andrew Yang's lane are, and who the broader opponents are within the party. Yang is a more recent addition to our surveys and at this time has an insufficient sample size for which to draw conclusions.

    Stephen Hawking coin coming Tuesday will be out of this world

    Ever feel like your money just falls into a black hole? You might find it fitting to pick up a 50-pence coin (about 65 cents US, 95 cents Australian) honoring late British physicist Stephen Hawking. The Royal Mint will issue the coin March 12, and while no images of it have been released, it will feature an image of Hawking on one side and a black hole on the other, CambridgeshireLive reports.

    Woman says she was fired for refusing boss's 'repeated and unwanted requests' to pray

    A California woman has filed a claim alleging that she was fired from her role as director of Ventura County’s animal control agency last fall because she declined her boss’s suggestions to pray, the Ventura County Star reports. Tara Diller claims she was wrongfully terminated from Ventura County Animal Services last October because she “rejected and refused” the “repeated and unwanted requests for religious prayer” made by her boss, Johnson Gill.

    California wants Silicon Valley to share the wealth with you. Here's how.

    It isn't a secret that tech companies collect your personal data and use it to make a buck. If you don't like it, stop using Facebook and Google. And the rest of the internet. California Gov. Gavin Newsom thinks there might be a better relationship: Charge companies to use your information and give some of the benefit back to you. He calls it a "data dividend."

    Futuristic Snack Developed in Israel Invokes the Space Age

    Israeli food and beverage manufacturer Strauss Group Inc. is testing out a futuristic new snack, made with the same technology used by NASA food scientists to develop food for astronauts—and to make instant coffee. A nutritional cube made from freeze-dried and pressed vegetables, fruits, and grains, the new snack indeed looks like something astronauts could enjoy during missions, or like something the Jetsons’ robotic maid could have whipped up. Strauss further invokes the space age by namin...

    ISPs Are Violating the Old Net Neutrality Rules

    It’s been just over a year since the FCC repealed net neutrality. The FCC’s case is being appealed and oral arguments are underway in the appeal as I write this blog. One would have to assume that until that appeal is finished that the big ISPs will be on their best behavior. Even so, the press has covered a number of ISP actions during the last year that would have violated net neutrality if the old rules were still in place.

    Psychotropic drugs frequently prescribed for autistic people

    About one in three autistic people in the United Kingdom is prescribed drugs designed to alter brain function, based on the records of almost 40,000 people1. People with autism are more likely to be prescribed these so-called ‘psychotropic’ drugs than are most people who visit a doctor. The figure for autism is almost as high as it is for people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), for whom some of these drugs are approved treatments.

    Nintendo Switch will soon pass the N64 in lifetime sales

    Nintendo sold 9.41 million Switch consoles in the three months leading up to December 31st, 2018, bringing lifetime sales to 32.27 million. That's just 660,000 short of the immensely-popular Nintendo 64 and well beyond both the Gamecube and Wii U. The holiday quarter was a big improvement over 2017, when the company shifted 7.23 million Switch consoles. Still, it seems unlikely that the company will hit its 20 million sales target for the current financial year.

    System has four stars and a planet-forming disk oriented vertically

    Models and observations indicate that both stars and planets form as a cloud of material collapses into a disk. If the process proceeds in an orderly manner, then the planets will all form from the same disk and thus orbit in the same plane. And—because material from the same disk will fall into the star, bringing its momentum with it—the star will rotate with its equator along the same plane. That should lead to a tidy system with the equator of the star lined up with the plane of any plane...

    Sponge offers hope of 'less toxic' chemotherapy

    Scientists believe they may have found a way to make cancer chemotherapy treatment less toxic to the body. They have begun testing a tiny sponge that sits inside a vein and removes excess chemo drugs from the blood once they have attacked the target tumour. Experts say the early work, in the journal ACS Central Science , offers hope of avoiding treatment side-effects, such as hair loss and nausea. So far, it has been tried in pigs, but researchers want to test it in people.

    Ocean-Saving Device to Clean Up Great Pacific Garbage Patch Breaks, Will Return to Port

    An ocean-saving device deployed in September to clean up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch has malfunctioned and will have to be towed back to port. During a routine inspection on Dec. 29, crew members discovered that a 60-foot end section of one of the booms that scoops up trash from the surface of the ocean had detached, 23-year-old inventor Boyan Slat wrote in a Jan. 1 blog post.
