    Automakers, oil companies, and shipping ports plan to build private 5G networks for faster, more reliable connectivity. The German automaker plans to build its own, private wireless network at its production sites using 5G, the next generation of cellular technology. Audi believes this private 5G network, which the company would be responsible for managing, will enable it to connect manufacturing robots and other devices faster and more securely than existing Ethernet, Wi-Fi, or 4G LTE options, ...

    Let's make a deal: The space race hits warp speed among investors

    Establishing a set of players in the Pentagon focused solely on buying space assets could help the Defense Department tap into some of the smaller, innovative and oftentimes cheaper space startups, one space investor says. “Having a dedicated group of people who look at this sector all the time who are aware of the new companies and capabilities...

    Lab-grown mini kidneys keep spawning rogue brain Cells

    Brain cells are not something you want to find growing where you don’t expect them. But that’s the surprise that awaited a team from Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL) when it analyzed the mini kidneys researchers have been growing from stem cells in the lab. Thankfully, the WUSTL team also found a way to prevent most of the brain cells from turning up in lab-grown mini kidneys — and the technique could prevent rogue cells from developing in other mini organs, too.

    Ontario’s Ford government is right: Wages should be set by ‘economics not politics’

    Many politicians and interest groups advocate a rapid increase in the minimum wage in the name of social justice. Yet this ignores the results of past experiments. Ontario’s new minister of labour, Laurie Scott, pushed back by cancelling the increase to $15 planned for January 2019 — her government’s legislation to make the cancellation official is expected to have its third reading at Queen’s Park Tuesday — stating that the minimum wage should be determined “by economics, not politi...

    Feminists of the West, Women Are Hurting in the Middle East

    Instead of worrying about “manspreading” or subtle displays of sexism, feminists in the West need to focus on major problems affecting women in the world, like being shot going to school or female genital mutilation. Like many of you, I grew up reading about historical heroines of the suffragette movement. These were women who faced imprisonment, risked their lives, or even willingly gave their lives to bring attention to their plight. These were women who were on the outskirts of society. T...

    The Democrats' Existential Battle: Achieving Real Democracy

    Yesterday’s elections confirmed that Democrats are a national majority party. They have won the popular vote in four of the last five presidential elections and yesterday overcame gerrymandering to retake the House of Representatives. (An example of how much gerrymandering matters: In North Carolina’s twelve contested House races, Democrats won 100,000 more votes overall. Democrats, however, are so packed into super-safe districts that Republicans took nine of those twelve seats.)

    Watch tiny robots swim through an eyeball to deliver medicine

    Although the mere thought of a swarm of microrobots burrowing into an eyeball is enough to make some people squirm, scientists believe tiny, controllable delivery vehicles could be the future of eye medicine. Now, researchers have developed a tiny, rotini-shaped spiral that could one day be deployed in the thousands for targeted drug delivery.

    Why I won't be buying the Google Pixel 3

    When my Google Pixel 2’s display went suddenly blank on October 11, I was certain it had powered off due to low battery. Only after charging it for some time did I realize that its screen had stopped working completely. I say only the display, since the fingerprint scanner was still giving me haptic feedback and the phone was still buzzing for calls and notifications. By next morning though, the phone had stopped working completely.
