    What Russians have been up to ahead of 2018 US midterm vote

    As Americans prepare for another election, Russian troublemakers have again tried to divide U.S. voters and discredit democracy. The activity appears focused on abuse of social media, through American-looking posts and sites, instead of big cyberattacks or disrupting voting systems. So far, it's more modest than the influence campaign Russia is accused of carrying out in 2016, and Russia is not alone — it's just one source of online manipulation ahead of Tuesday's election.

    Air pollution linked to “huge” reduction in intelligence

It was undertaken by scientists at Peking University in Beijing, China and Yale University in the U.S. and was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal. In particular...

    Planet has only until 2030 to stem catastrophic climate change, experts warn

    Governments around the world must take "rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society" to avoid disastrous levels of global warming, says a stark new report from the global scientific authority on climate change. The report issued Monday by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), says the planet will reach the crucial threshold of 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial levels by as early as 2030...

    The Coming Quantum Leap in Computing

    The buzz gets louder, the potential is huge, but the hurdles remain high. When will quantum computing make its mark on business? Our recent research says the answer may be sooner than many people think. Quantum computing is not a replacement for the binary classical computing that has become a staple of modern life. But to paraphrase Nobel laureate Richard Feynman, because quantum computers use quantum physics to emulate the physical world, they can solve problems that today’s computers will n...

    U.K. will immediately recognize Palestine if Labour elected, says Corbyn

    Britain's opposition Labour Party will "will recognise a Palestinian state as soon as we take office," says leader Jeremy Corbyn while speaking Wednesday at the annual party conference. “The continuing occupation, the expansion of illegal settlements and the imprisonment of Palestinian children are an outrage,” Corbyn said, while explaining Labour backs a two-state solution to the conflict.

    Shell and Exxon's secret 1980s climate change warnings | Benjamin Franta

    One day in 1961, an American economist named Daniel Ellsberg stumbled across a piece of paper with apocalyptic implications. Ellsberg, who was advising the US government on its secret nuclear war plans, had discovered a document that contained an official estimate of the death toll in a preemptive “first strike” on China and the Soviet Union: 300 million in those countries, and double that globally.

    NFL players' surprising performance hack: going vegan

    When you think of what NFL players eat, you might imagine hulking athletes tearing into juicy steaks and scarfing fattening food. Perhaps it's not so far from the truth: ESPN recently reported it takes nearly 600 pounds of beef to feed the Buffalo Bills for a week, and that's not even counting chicken (700 pounds) and fish.

    Fears for climate as Trump administration relaxes rules on oil reserves

    The Trump administration has relaxed controls on America's oil reserves in a move that makes no mention of climate change. A memo published online with little publicity appears to undermine decades of government campaigns promoting fuel-efficient cars. The new government position follows a decade of fracking, which has unlocked shale oil reserves. That gives the US "more flexibility than in the past to use our oil resources with less concern", the Energy Department memo said.

    Analyst: Renewable energy will be 'effectively free' by 2030

    Analysts at Swiss investment bank UBS believe that by 2030, we could all be living without much of a carbon footprint — at least at home. The analysts believe that the cost of renewable energy will continue to dive heading into the next decade, and that by 2030, costs will be so low they will “effectively be free,” according to new research published this morning in the Financial Times (paywall).
