    Google made $4.7bn in advertising from news content last year, almost as much as the revenue of the entire online news industry, according to a study released on Monday. According to the News Media Alliance, between 16% and 40% of Google search results are news content. Google’s revenue from its distribution of news content is only $400m less than the $5.1bn brought in by the United States news industry as a whole from digital advertising last year.

    Cold-parenting linked to premature aging, increased disease risk in offspring

    New research out of Loma Linda University Health suggests that unsupportive parenting styles may have several negative health implications for children, even into their adult years. The study found that the telomeres — protective caps on the ends of the strands of DNA — of subjects who considered their mothers' parenting style as “cold” were on average 25% smaller compared to those who reported having a mother whose parenting style they considered “warm.”

    #MeToo backlash? More male managers avoid mentoring women or meeting alone with them, survey says.

    The unintended consequence of the #MeToo movement -- that men are now more fearful of working one-on-one with women -- is getting worse. Much worse. Or at least, that's the take-away from a survey released Friday by LeanIn.org, the women's self-empowerment organization founded by Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg. The survey found that 60% of male managers say they are uncomfortable doing common workplace activities with women such as mentoring, socializing or having one...

    Scientists teach computers fear—to make them better drivers

    Computers can master some tasks—like playing a game of Go—through trial and error. But what works for a game doesn’t work for risky real-world tasks like driving a car, where “losing” might involve a high-speed collision. To drive safely, humans have an exquisite feedback system: our fight-or-flight response, in which physiological reactions like a rapid heart rate and sweaty palms signal “fear,” and so keep us vigilant and, theoretically, out of trouble. Now, researchers at Micros...

    A man finds a $24 million lottery ticket in an old shirt -- just in the nick of time

    Everyone has that spot in their house or car where they let the mail and receipts pile up. For 68-year old Jimmie Smith, it was an old shirt hanging in his closet. Stuffed in its pockets was a stack of unchecked lottery tickets. "I always told myself, 'I'll check them when I have the time,'" the New Jersey man said. It's a good thing he did. Because had he waited two days longer, he'd have lost out on $24.1 million.

    'A Clockwork Orange' Follow-Up Found in Burgess Archives

    A literature professor at Manchester Metropolitan University recently unearthed a legendary manuscript: a 200-page work titled The Clockwork Condition by A Clockwork Orange’s Anthony Burgess. Don’t get too excited, Droog lovers. Colin Dwyer at NPR reports that Condition is not a sequel to the cult novel, but rather a meditation on the “condition of modern man” that was to be structured similarly to Dante’s Inferno. The manuscript was also something of a cash grab. After the release and...

    Is Apple Customer Service Good? 2019 Rating

    Long live the king of laptop tech support! Apple's got a history of agents answering issues accurately with a polite, friendly manner. While we'd love it if Apple would answer questions on Facebook (there's a lot of business communication tech in Messenger), the combination of Twitter, live online chats, its support app and phone calls provides a solid base for the company's support. Oh, and there's also the Genius Bar, which is widely available, thanks to its placement ...

    Falling for phone scams could be an early sign of dementia, study says

    The woman lives alone, but she's rarely lonely. Friends stop by most mornings, and a niece looks in weekly. Still, most of her afternoons and evenings are spent sitting in her chair, looking at the clouds and sky through a picture window. The caller sounded nice. "Good afternoon," he said in a cheery voice, asking whether he could use her first name. She couldn't remember entering the sweepstakes, but he assured her that she had and that it didn't matter: What matters, h...

    CIA Offers Proof Huawei Has Been Funded By China's Military And Intelligence

    In the battle between Washington and Huawei, there has long been the taunt from Shenzhen that U.S. officials have failed to produce any evidence of actual collusion between the telecom equipment giant and the Chinese state. Has that now changed? On Saturday, the Times reported that such evidence exists, it has just not been openly published. According to the newspaper's U.K. source, Huawei "has received funding from branches of Beijing’s state security apparatus...

    Beresheet crashed on the moon, but its 'Lunar Library' likely survived

    Israeli probe Beresheet didn't make it to the moon in one piece, but one of its most intriguing pieces of cargo might have. At this moment, it's possible there's a new crater on the lunar surface created by the spacecraft's crash landing, and in that impact zone is a metal disc containing a full copy of Wikipedia, the history of the world and magician David Copperfield's secrets, among many other things.

    Do Microdoses of LSD Change Your Mind?

    You’ve probably heard about microdosing, the “productivity hack” popular among Silicon Valley engineers and business leaders. Microdosers take regular small doses of LSD or magic mushrooms. At these doses, they don’t experience mind-bending, hallucinatory trips, but they say they get a jolt in creativity and focus that can elevate work performance, help relationships, and generally improve a stressful and demanding daily life. If its proponents are to be believed, microdosing offers the ...
