    Handheld biopen prints human cartilage

    A handheld “biopen” capable of 3D printing cartilage tissue could for the first time be used during surgery to treat cartilage injuries and osteoarthritus.

    Take control of your commute with Google Maps

    If you’ve ever been stuck in a hot, crowded subway tunnel or caught in gridlocked traffic wishing that you could magically transport yourself to work, you know that commuting can be hard. Why are commutes so stressful? They’re unpredictable and long. Commute data in 25 North American cities tells us daily commute times during rush hour traffic can be up to 60 percent longer than what you expect when you start your drive—resulting in a lot of stress, missed meetings, and skipped breakfasts.

Nancy Crampton-Brophy, the writer of sensuous mysteries such as "Hell on the Heart" and "The Wrong Husband," was arrested for murder on Sept. 5 – more than three months after th...

    Apple wins pre-trial motions against Qualcomm; judge implies chipmaker made tactical error

    The long-running patent infringement dispute between Apple and Qualcomm is at the stage of pre-trial motions – where both sides try to get rulings on what will and won’t be allowed in evidence during the trial.

    Australian Prime Minister Ousted Over Climate Policy

    Conservative lawmaker Scott Morrison has forced out Malcolm Turnbull as Australian prime minister, the third time the country's leader has sunk over climate policy in the past decade, and the seventh since 1997, according to Australia's ABC News. An internal Liberal party row started when Turnbull proposed modest emissions targets for the country's energy sector. He dropped the plans Monday after pressure from the party's right-wing faction, but that led to a narrowly defeate...

    Boeing Developing A Laser To Predict Invisible Turbulence Before It Happens

    With turbulence set to get almost 200% worse with climate change, Boeing wants to help pilots avoid the pockets of air responsible for hundreds of injuries each year.

In addition, injuries from turbulence are estimated to cost US air carriers over $200m each year. Given these figures, it is no wonder that Boeing want to help detect turbulence up ahead.

    Guna Yala: The islands where women make the rules

    In the small indigenous territory of Guna Yala off Panama’s eastern coast, a flourishing ‘third gender’ community is defying stereotypes – and venerating women. As our old, rickety sailboat glides effortlessly over the calm waters of the Caribbean, I am overwhelmed by the feeling we’ve just arrived in paradise. Scattered across the turquoise blue waters, the tiny islands of glistening white sand, covered in palm trees and green coconuts, look too perfect to be real.
