Now, a new report mentions that Asus will no longer make ZenPad tablets, meaning that the OEM has left the market.

    SpaceX capsule suffers 'anomaly' in tests

A US Air Force spokesperson told local press the incident, at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, had been contained and no-one had been injured.

This latest incident, however, could delay plans to launch a manned mission to the International Space Station later this year.

    Vermont Likely to Become Third State to Officially Scrap Columbus Day for Indigenous Peoples’ Day

    Columbus Day is likely to be a thing of the past in Vermont in the near future. The Vermont Legislature passed a bill on Wednesday that would permanently recognize the second Monday in October as Indigenous Peoples’ Day and Gov. Phil Scott said he’ll likely sign it into law. “I see no reason that I would not sign it,” Scott told the Burlington Free Press, “but we’re reviewing the bill as we speak.”

    Limits of Language

    We think that everything can be talked about. Yet, from metaphors to the mystical, there are many things we seem unable to directly express. Should we accept that some things transcend our conceptual grasp? Are the most important things in life beyond language? Or can we find the right words for everything, even if we don't yet know what they are?

    The organ shortage will soon get worse. Animal organs could help.

    Nearly 75,000 Americans need an organ transplant. Of those, an estimated 18 will die today because they didn’t get one soon enough. The bottom line is that there just aren’t enough donor organs available to meet the nation’s need. Soon, in a strange twist, self-driving cars could exacerbate the problem by reducing the number of car accidents, which is currently one of the primary sources of donor organs.

    Radical climate action 'critical' to Great Barrier Reef's survival, government body says

    Australia's top Great Barrier Reef officials warn the natural wonder will virtually collapse if the planet becomes 1.5 degrees hotter – a threshold that scientists say requires shutting down coal within three decades. This federal election campaign is a potential tipping point for Australia's direction on climate action, as the major parties pledge distinctly different targets for cutting greenhouse gas emissions.

    Netflix confirms it killed AirPlay support, won’t let you beam shows to Apple TVs anymore

    With no warning and little explanation, Netflix has removed the easiest way to sling its shows from one Apple device to another: AirPlay.

    When Psychedelics Make Your Last Months Alive Worth Living

    In the spring of 2018, Dan G. learned that the melanoma he had beaten 18 years earlier had returned and spread to his liver and lungs. After several months of chemo and immunotherapy, the 44-year-old decided the traditional treatments he’d been undergoing weren’t enough. The crippling side effects of the drugs had left him feeling hollow—and only exacerbated his already acute feelings of anxiety and depression. He often felt too decimated, both physically and mentally, to spend quality tim...

    The Dreams Of A Man Asleep For Three Weeks

    On March 22, 2018, I was rushed to the hospital for life-saving surgery. Due to complications with the procedure, I didn’t regain full, coherent consciousness until the second week in April. For three weeks I was stuck inside my own mind, subject to a seemingly unending series of dreams. Dreams covering on a variety of themes, some light and hopeful, others dark and dismal. I dreamed the end of my life over and over. I was a hero and a villain. Sometimes, but not often, I was Michael Fahey.

We're talking at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, just a week after he announced that Dwarf Fortress, the Adams' brothers decade-in-the-making ASCII sim, is coming to Steam with graphics and sound and a polished up user interface.

    This Woman Can Smell Parkinson's. It Might Help Lead To Earlier Treatment

    Parkinson’s disease stinks. Figuratively. But according to new research, it literally stinks too — to those who have a heightened sense of smell. Thanks to the help of one of these “super-smellers,” a team of scientists has identified subtle volatile compounds produced by Parkinson’s sufferers. These compounds could be used to make much easier, and earlier, diagnostics for the disease.
