    The Internet Is Splitting in Two Amid U.S. Dispute With China

    Western bigwigs were a no-show at China’s biggest web conference. But in their absence, the local overseers of the nation’s technology industry were only too happy to plug their unique vision for the global internet. Unlike 2017, when Tim Cook and Sundar Pichai graced the World Internet Conference in Wuzhen, this year’s gathering was a decidedly domestic affair, presided over by the likes of Tencent Holdings Ltd. Chairman Ma Huateng.

    Scooters Reveal Urban America's Transportation Crisis

    The transportation options in urban America leave much to be desired. There are crumbling metro systems, roads packed to the brim with car traffic, and around 1,000 bicycle deaths and 467,000 bicycle accidents per year. Silicon Valley and various tech enterprises have sought to “disrupt” this status quo with convenience-first solutions. First it was ride-hailing apps like Uber and Lyft, which created various labor issues, and additional car traffic. Then dockless bikes, which cities fought a...

    Giant planets around young star raise questions about how planets form

    Researchers have identified a young star with four Jupiter and Saturn-sized planets in orbit around it, the first time that so many massive planets have been detected in such a young system. The system has also set a new record for the most extreme range of orbits yet observed: the outermost planet is more than a thousand times further from the star than the innermost one, which raises interesting questions about how such a system might have formed.

    Huge Icelandic volcano set to erupt 'dwarfing 2010 ash cloud'

    Scientists have warned that a huge volcano in Iceland is about to erupt, dwarfing the explosion that disrupted air travel across the world eight years ago. Katla, described as “highly hazardous”, has been releasing a massive amount of carbon dioxide – a clear indication that its magma chambers are filling up fast. Researchers believe its eruption could overshadow that of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano in 2010 – which caused a giant ash cloud that effectively grounded all European air travel.

    Sacha Baron Cohen Convinced This Food Critic He Ate Human Meat–And He Loved It.

    After what was a promising first few episodes, Sacha Baron Cohen's Who Is America? has lost its steam. There haven't been any more political humiliations—rather, he's gone in some deeply troubling directions, including tonight's episode, which involved discussing Hillary Clinton's genitalia and giving birth out of his anus. With the questionable moments aside, this penultimate episode of Cohen's...
