    FCC tells SpaceX it can deploy up to 11,943 broadband satellites

    SpaceX today received US approval to deploy 7,518 broadband satellites, in addition to the 4,425 satellites that were approved eight months ago. The Federal Communications Commission voted to let SpaceX launch 4,425 low-Earth orbit satellites in March of this year. SpaceX separately sought approval for 7,518 satellites operating even closer to the ground, saying that these will boost capacity and reduce latency in heavily populated areas.

    Even the FBI Thinks Police Have Links to White Supremacists — but Don’t Tell the New York Times

    Over the weekend, the New York Times Magazine published a lengthy and in-depth piece on how U.S. law enforcement has willfully ignored the threat of white supremacist extremism for decades. The author, Janet Reitman, takes an ostensibly deep dive into how law enforcement — particularly federal agencies — has neglected the growth of the violent far right, in part owing to Republican political agenda setting. For a story framed around a “blind spot,” though, the piece itself is hobbled by ...

    The secret to being more likeable on first dates and job interviews revealed

    The battle to curb our appetite for concrete

    We extract billions of tonnes of sand and gravel each year to make concrete for the building industry, and this is having an increasing environmental impact as beaches and river beds are stripped, warn campaigners. Alongside this environmental damage, the building industry is also a major contributor to greenhouse gases - cement manufacturing alone accounts for 7% of global CO2 emissions.

    Prank calls succeeded in bringing ICE hotline to a standstill

    When ICE launched an immigration crime hotline last year, the Trump administration pitched it as a way to provide resources to victims, but activists saw something else: an attack on the immigrant community. The hotline was part of the Victims Of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) Office, an outfit established in February 2017. When the office first launched a line for its services the following April, protestors flooded the hotline to call in pranks and slow down response times. The plan pick...

    Electric cars could store energy in their carbon fiber bodies

    You might not need a big, heavy battery to power an EV. Electric cars typically need larger, denser batteries if they're going to meet the range expectations of people used to gas-powered vehicles, but available space and weight limit the size of that battery. Researchers might have a solution: turn the very body of the car into a battery. They've conducted a study showing that carbon fiber shells could serve as battery electrodes. The trick is to optimize the size and orientation of t...

    Netflix Reportedly Shows Different Skin Colors on Movie Title Cards Depending on Your Assumed Race

    Netflix, a notorious data collector, can probably make an educated guess as to what race you are. But it also looks like they’re proactively using that data to show different title cards for movies and TV shows in their catalog depending on the data. Stacia Brown noticed this trend and posted about it on Twitter. Netflix recommended her the movie ‘Like Father,’ which predominantly features Kristen Bell and Kelsey Grammar as the leads, both white actors.

    'Wild west' of social media for medical journals needs more support to succeed

    Much of the published medical research goes unread by the general public and medical community, despite being largely funded by the federal government and private foundations. To reach more people, medical journals have begun using social media to promote new research. A new Northwestern Medicine study has found social media editors lack established best practices and support from their journals and home institutions, making it difficult for them to successfully promote new research.

    Canada Invests $153 Million So They’ll Never Run Out of Beyond Burgers Again

    Earlier this year in Canada, fast-food chain A&W added the vegan Beyond Burger to its menu. Within a month, the burger was no longer available due to a shortage of the plant protein used to make it. Now, a Canadian federal program has set aside $153 million in funding to enable the country to provide more plant-based protein. Once finalized, the allocation will expand Canada’s capacity to process peas and beans, allowing the country to meet the growing demand for vegan products like the Be...
