    Thousands of Israelis took to the streets of Tel Aviv to accuse Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of corruption

    Thousands of Israelis protested in Tel Aviv on Saturday for the second consecutive week against government corruption and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is under criminal investigation over allegations of abuse of office. Police estimated the number of demonstrators at about 10,000 and they followed last Saturday’s demonstration, by far the largest of ongoing weekly anti-corruption protests when an estimated 20,000 people participated.

    Why FCC Should Delay the Net Neutrality Vote Until It Investigates Comment Fraud

    When Netflix debuted the second season of Stranger Things on October 27, more than 15 million people watched the first episode in the following three days. But the strangest thing about Stranger Things? Its early audience was bigger than some of this year's World Series games.

    San Francisco to robots: Don’t crowd our sidewalks

    Robots that trundle along sidewalks R2D2-style to deliver takeout food or packages are still in early test phases. Few even exist. But San Francisco is cracking down on them, and that may stem from mounting concerns about automation gobbling up jobs. On Tuesday night, San Francisco's Board of Supervisors unanimously passed tough new regulations that will limit companies to three robots each; limit the city to nine robots total; and confine robots to industrial areas where ...

    I find it really amusing that one of the most corrupt organizations in the world is banning another of the most corrupt organizations in the world from participating in their event.

    Babies Learn What Words Mean before They Can Use Them

    Babies begin to learn words and what they mean well before they begin talking, and researchers are beginning to understand how they do it. "I think it's especially intriguing that we find evidence that for infants, even their early words aren't 'islands': even with a very small vocabulary they seem to have a sense that some words and concepts are more 'similar' than others,” Dr. Elika Bergelson from Duke University, Durham, North Carolina told Reuters Health ...

    "I like endings where everyone dies" - the dark new studio from ex Quantic Dream devs

    Earlier this year, Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls lead game designer Caroline Marchal decided to branch off on her own. In another life, she could have stayed at Quantic Dream and now been working on Detroit: Become Human. In another she could still be at Sony, a job she left recently to strike off on her own. But just as with modern, choice heavy games, if Marchal could go back and do things differently, each path would have ultimately have led to the same place: she would end up working on n...

    Antarctica Was Once Covered in Forests. We Just Found One That Fossilized.

    It was summer in Antarctica, and Erik Gulbranson and John Isbell were on the hunt. Bundled up in parkas to brave negative temperatures, fierce winds, and blinding days of 24-hour sunlight, Gulbranson, Isbell, and an international team of researchers searched for fossil fragments. Between November 2016 and January 2017, they scaled the snow-capped slopes of the McIntyre Promontory high above the ice fields and glaciers, sifting through the Transantarctic Mountain's gray sedimentary rocks for...

    How Obama and Hillary Clinton Weaponized the ‘Dossier’

    The Trump-Russia collusion story was a joint invention of the Obama administration and the Clinton campaign. It enabled the Obama administration to make use of the nation’s security and intelligence services to spy on Trump and his associates and to use whatever information they thereby gleaned to try to get Hillary into the White House. The failure of the scheme didn’t stop either Obama or the Clintons.

    Do it right from the start and bury the pole-to-pole electric grid under ground. It's been standard practice on the mainland for at least ten years. And more hurricanes will come so better safe than sorry.

    Court order about Las Vegas shooting evidence suggests shooter may have had multiple rooms

    A court order about evidence connected to Stephen Paddock, on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay, suggests it’s possible Paddock had more than one room on that floor. MGM Resorts has agreed to preserve 25 categories of evidence, connected to a civil lawsuit filed by a California woman, who was shot three times on Oct. 1. Last Thursday, after Judge Mark Denton issued a temporary preservation order, MGM said it would fight the decision.

    We Might Have Seen the First Interstellar Comet

    Last week, astronomers using the PanSTARRS 1 telescope perched on the Haleakalā volcano on the island of Maui spotted what they believe is the first comet ever detected that does not orbit the sun. The comet, designated C/2017 U1, appears to have come from the direction of the constellation Lyra, and preliminary observations indicate it has a higher eccentricity than any known comet (1.1815), suggesting it is on a hyperbolic interstellar trajectory.

    Where “The Walking Dead” Goes Wrong With Zombies

    Rick Grimes is cornered. A walker shuffles toward him, thoughtless yet eager for flesh. Sweat drips through Grimes’ thick beard, grown in the hundreds of fearful days and nights since the dead started to roam the earth. He quickly reaches for his knife—a weapon he never used in his days as a cop—and sinks it straight into the ghoul’s forehead. This isn’t any specific scene from AMC’s The Walking Dead. It fits the bill for many of them. But is the human skull—zombified or not—real...

    Dogs Can Tell Whether People Are Selfish Or Generous After Brief Human Exposure

    If you’ve ever wondered whether your dog indeed is a good judge of a person’s character or whether that’s just the wishful thinking of a doting dog parent, new research suggests that dogs are aware of human personality. However, it doesn’t have anything to do with a canine sixth sense. A study published in the journal PLOS One found that dogs learn to recognize whether a person is selfish or generous after little human interaction. Adult dogs in the investigation preferred to get physica...

    'Stranger Things 2' Is A Sequel That Mostly Lives Up To The Original

    The first season of Stranger Things seemingly materialized from nowhere: an unhyped show from a pair of obscure creators who nonetheless had the pretensions to bill themselves as “The Duffer Brothers,” starring a cast of unknown kids (plus Winona Ryder and Matthew Modine in supporting roles), paying tribute to the Duffers’ favorite sci-fi, horror, and fantasy stories of the ’80s, that somehow became one of the most beloved, talked-about shows of last year. The surprise of it was nearly a...
