They said they still did not know the motive for the attacks and were still looking for suspects. Authorities have complained that the vast majority of the 100 reported cases were hoaxes, and warned that pranksters posting images on Facebook claiming that they have discovered tainted fruit could also face prosecution and potential jail time.

    The iPhone XS camera beats the iPhone X, but not the Pixel 2

    Apple’s new iPhone XS and XS Max have arrived, and as with any new flagship phone, a key question has been, “How’s the camera?” We now take great displays and performance for granted, especially with Apple’s new and improved iOS 12, but the camera remains the one technical aspect where a modern phone can truly set itself apart. Apple has fallen behind on this front over the past couple of years, which is an unusual place for the smartphone design and engineering leader to be.

    Scientists Reveal the Number of Times You're Actually Conscious Each Minute

    Two papers released Wednesday in Neuron delve deep into the way we perceive the world, revealing that we don’t actually register much of it. Our attention systems, the authors show, are extremely ill-equipped for modern society. Rather than take in the world in a constant stream of information, consciousness oscillates in and out of focus, meaning that what we think we know about the world has actually just been pieced together from limited information. Their estimates of how often we are actu...

    Virtually Better: How Virtual Reality Is Helping Treat Social Anxiety

    We humans are deeply social creatures. We live our lives in the company of others: we work together, eat together, play together, and sleep together. Yet, for some of us, interacting with other people can really be “hell.” The prospect of talking with a stranger, ordering food in a restaurant, or speaking up in a work meeting, can, for some people, be an incredibly daunting and fear-provoking experience. This is very much the case for sufferers of “social anxiety disorder.”

    Cuba will recognize private property in its new constitution

Private property was banned after Fidel Castro and his Communist Party seized power in 1959, but sales have been permitted since 2011. The proposed new constitution would freely recognize all private property, as well as the free market, while maintaining a strong role for the government, state media say.
