    Your DNA Is Out There. Do You Want Law Enforcement Using It?

    On the afternoon of Nov. 18, 1987, Jay Cook and Tanya Van Cuylenborg left Saanich, B.C., their hometown, to pick up some furnace equipment in Seattle for Cook’s father. Saanich and Seattle are a little more than 100 miles apart, but the trip takes almost five hours: a ferry into the U.S. across the Strait of Juan de Fuca, another across Puget Sound, and between them a winding coastal drive through evergreen forests and fishing towns.

    Climate friendly cooling shows promise

    Researchers in the US have scaled up a new low-cost system that could provide efficient cooling for homes while using very little electricity. The team has developed a roof-top sized array, built from a highly reflective material made from glass and polymers. In tests, the system kept water around 10C cooler than the ambient air when exposed to midday sunlight in summer. The approach could also be scaled up to cool power stations and data centres.

    One of the world's largest banks has issued an alarming warning about antibiotic resistance — with big consequences for humanity

    One of the world's largest banks has issued a dire warning about the future of food safety. According to the global research team at HSBC, the use of antibiotics in meat production could have "devastating" consequences for humanity. When farmers feed antibiotics to their animals, they create antibiotic-resistant bacteria, which can lead to antibiotic-resistant "superbugs" in humans. Over time, this could make it difficult to treat even common infections like strep throat...
