    Trump team uses new rationale to terminate TPS program for hundreds of thousands of legal immigrants

    For the past year, the Trump administration has been phasing out a special immigration program that has allowed hundreds of thousands of foreigners from nations devastated by natural disasters and civil strife to live and work in the U.S. as legal residents. In order to do so, the Department of Homeland Security has tossed aside findings reached by Republican and Democratic administrations over nearly three decades and adopted a new, more narrow interpretation of U.S. law.

    Nobody trusts Facebook anymore. Here’s one way it could change that.

    AnchorFree — the company behind the popular VPN app Hotspot Shield — recently surveyed its users, asking them when they cared about privacy and security. And when it came to most of their activity online, like sharing photos to Facebook, the survey respondents said they didn’t care. “But 30 percent of the time, almost everyone said they cared about their privacy enormously,” AnchorFree CEO David Gorodyansky said on the latest episode of Recode Decode. “That 30 percent was when it cam...

    At 10 trillion frames per second, this camera captures light in slow motion

    Light is the fastest thing in the universe, so trying to catch it on the move is necessarily something of a challenge. We’ve had some success, but a new rig built by Caltech scientists pulls down a mind-boggling 10 trillion frames per second, meaning it can capture light as it travels along — and they have plans to make it a hundred times faster.

    45 Out of 50 Electronics Companies Illegally Void Warranties After Independent Repair, Sting Operation Finds

    When you buy a game console, smartphone, dryer, vacuum cleaner, or any number of other complicated electronics, there’s usually a sticker or a piece of paperwork telling you that trying to repair the device yourself will void your warranty. That’s illegal under the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. Companies offering a warranty on their goods aren’t allowed to void that warranty if the user attempts to repair it themself, but that doesn’t stop the company from scaring customers into th...

    Fallout 76's VATS is pretty disappointing, here it is in action

    I'm not sure what I was expecting from VATS in Fallout 76, which we got to play during a hands-on session last week at an event in West Virginia. In Fallout 3, 4 and New Vegas, the Vault-Tec Assisted Targeting System lets you slow down time to target the different body parts of your enemies. Target their arms so they'll drop their weapons. Cripple their legs to slow them down. Aim for their head or other weak points, or cycle through several enemies and line up devastating shots on all...

    Saturn's rings made of surprising chemical mix

    Political humorist Mark Russel once joked, “The scientific theory I like best is that the rings of Saturn are composed entirely of lost airline luggage.” Well, there’s no luggage, it turns out. But a new study appearing in Science based on data from the final orbits last year of NASA’s Cassini spacecraft shows the rings of Saturn — some of the most visually stupendous objects in the universe — are far more chemically complicated than previously was understood.

    Bookselling is the most over-romanticised job in the world

    Readers around the world cooed last month when a Welsh bookseller announced he was giving away his shop to a regular customer. It was a lovely story, but as an ex-bookseller of five years, I could only dwell on the harsh realities this unsuspecting man would inherit: slow days, stocktaking and, unavoidably, a few regular oddballs.

    ‘Undoubtedly Russia has put nuclear weapons in occupied Crimea,’ Felgenhauer says

    Pavel Felgenhauer, an independent Russian military analyst, says that even though Moscow will not confirm or deny the presence of nuclear weapons in occupied Crimea, there can be no doubt that the Russians have placed them there because of the presence of nuclear-capable delivery systems. He tells Ukraine’s Gordon news agency that most of them are probably still in storage bunkers but some of them may already be installed in launch vehicles for possible use.

    Employers and workers together are spending close to $20,000 for family health insurance coverage in 2018, according to a new Kaiser Family Foundation report. Although premiums have increased fairly modestly in recent years, the growth has far outpaced workers' raises over time. The average family premium has increased 55% since 2008, twice as fast as workers' wages and three times as fast as inflation, Kaiser's Employer Health Benefits Survey found.

    Conservative Christianity Is Now Everything It Once Hated: Post-Modern, Morally Relative, and Post-Truth

    For a religion that touts the virtues of truth, large segments of American Christianity couldn’t care less about whether it’s found within the political system it helped put into power. The bedrock of Christianity is founded upon pillars of truth — that God is real; that Jesus died and rose again; and that Christ saved us from our sins. Furthermore, Jesus himself claims to be the very embodiment of truth: “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.” (John 14:6)
