    The US-Led Global War on Terrorism Has Succeeded... In Creating More Global Terrorism

    In the 17 years since the events of Sept. 11 2001, after which the United States declared a "global war on terror," there has not been a terrorist attack of similar size or magnitude on American soil. However, according to findings in a new congressionally mandated report by the United States Institute of Peace—authored by members of a federal task force focused on extremism—nations around the world have suffered a five-fold increase in terrorist attacks following the post-9/11 pol...

    Three organ transplant patients die of cancer contracted from single donor

After suffering a stroke in 2007 the woman’s organs were donated to five people, but her diagnosis was not known to doctors and four patients contracted aggressive “donor derived” breast cancers.

    Canada is selling fewer armoured vehicles to the Saudis than it planned

    A Canadian defence contractor will be selling fewer armoured vehicles to Saudi Arabia than originally planned, according to new documents obtained by CBC News.

    Geoffrey Owens Says Losing TV Royalties After Bill Cosby’s Scandal 'Impacted Me Financially'

    Geoffrey Owens says the Bill Cosby scandal was just one of the factors that led him to search for work outside of his industry, including bagging groceries at Trader Joe’s. Owens, 57, had been receiving royalties from The Cosby Show for years. But when Cosby, 81, was accused and later convicted of sexual assault, reruns were pulled from syndications, and the checks stopped coming.

    U.S. Weighs Sanctions Against Chinese Officials Over Muslim Detention Camps

    The Trump administration is considering sanctions against Chinese senior officials and companies to punish Beijing’s detention of hundreds of thousands of ethnic Uighurs and other minority Muslims in large internment camps, according to current and former American officials. The economic penalties would be one of the first times the Trump administration has taken action against China because of human rights violations. United States officials are also seeking to limit American sales of surveil...

    Ford Hits Back At Trump, Says It Won't Build New Focus Cars In U.S.

    'It would not be profitable to build the Focus Active in the U.S. given an expected annual sales volume of fewer than 50,000 units and its competitive segment,' Ford said. President Donald Trump on Sunday suggested via Twitter that American automaker Ford could begin making its Focus model in the U.S., and therefore circumvent his tariffs.

    Pluto should be reclassified as a planet, experts say

    Pluto wrongly lost its planet status, say, scientists, suggesting that the icy dwarf should be reclassified as a planetary body. In 2006, the International Astronomical Union (IAU), a global group of astronomy experts, established a definition of a planet that required it to "clear" its orbit, or in other words, be the largest gravitational force in its orbit.

    Man stops to help stranded motorist who turned out to be hitman hired to kill him

    When police found Carlos Cruz-Echevarria dead near his home last Veterans Day, he was lying face down in a ditch, shot multiple times in the head. Beside him was a truck stuck in the mud. Later, the 60-year-old army veteran’s car was found several miles away, torched. It seemed like a random, senseless killing: authorities thought Cruz-Echevarria had been robbed and left for dead after stopping to help a stranger on a Daytona Beach roadside. But a year long investigation has revealed that it w...

    Scientists find way of treating skin wounds without surgery

    Scientists have discovered a new way of treating skin wounds in mice by tricking the cells in the wound into becoming healing surface skin cells. The findings raise the prospect of being able to develop simple, non-surgical treatments for human wounds in the future. Large skin wounds and ulcers are painful and occasionally life-threatening. When the surface of the skin is ruptured, epithelial cells, which make up the outer layer of the skin, migrate towards the wound in an effort to seal up the ...

    Italy abolishes requirement for parents to prove children have been vaccinated

    Italian state schools will no longer demand parents prove that their children have been vaccinated, the country’s new populist government has announced. Lega leader Matteo Salvini said he considered 10 vaccines - the amount Italian schoolchildren are required by law to have - to not only be useless, but potentially dangerous, in the run-up to the general election in March 2018. The new policy is likely to stoke fears that the coalition government, which also includes the Five Star Movement, ma...

    How realistic are sci-fi spaceships?

    At more than 60 years into the Space Age, fictional spaceships appear on our screens at a far greater frequency than the real things launch in real life. But that doesn't mean they'll actually fly. When it comes to imagining interstellar travel, the history of spaceflight up until now hasn't given science-fiction designers a whole lot to work with. All we've seen are basic rockets (useful for escaping Earth's gravity well), plane-like space shuttles (useful for re-enter...

    More remote islands might be more susceptible to invasive species: study

    More isolated oceanic islands harbor fewer native species due to the fact that plants and animals are less capable of naturally dispersing to and colonizing those islands. This is known as the species-isolation relationship (SIR), one of the most fundamental concepts in the study of island biogeography.

    Comcast's Cord Cutting Losses to More Than Double in 2018

    Comcast's resilience to the cord cutting phenomenon may not last forever. Comcast has been able to buck the cord cutting trend so far thanks to its growing monopoly over broadband. With many telcos giving up on residential broadband and refusing to upgrade their networks at any real scale, companies like Comcast are increasingly seeing no competition in broadband. When frustrated DSL users switch to Comcast, they then sign up for cable TV bundles because standalone broadband is prohibitivel...

    Elon Musk ends brief flirtation with taking Tesla private, cites belief that company is 'better off'

    Tesla will remain a publicly traded company, CEO Elon Musk said late Friday, just weeks after he floated the idea of going private in order to ward off short-sellers and volatility in the company's stock. In early August, Musk touched off a firestorm by saying on Twitter that he was considering taking Tesla private at $420 per share, adding that funding was "secured." In the wake of that announcement, the billionaire and his company have been buffeted by skepticism, in addition to...
