The move is part of a commitment made in the programme for government. The previous Fine Gael-Labour coalition, which governed from 2011 to 2016, had promised a vote on the law.

    Merkel Backs Trump-Putin Summit in Nod to U.S.

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she favors a U.S.-Russian summit, seeking to push global diplomacy forward after a tumultuous meeting of Group of Seven leaders. Russian President Vladimir Putin wasn’t invited to the G-7 summit in Canada, although U.S. President Donald Trump suggested he be readmitted. In an echo of Cold War meetings on neutral ground, Austria is encouraging the U.S. to hold a summit in Vienna, a White House official said last week.

At the gathering of the Conservative Way Forward, a Thatcherite campaign group, he said exit talks were approaching a “moment of truth”.

    Apple issues new App Store rules aimed at streaming PC-based games

    Apple Inc (AAPL.O) on Monday issued new review guidelines for its lucrative App Store platform, after it moved to block plans by Steam, the biggest distributor of PC-based video games, to extend its reach into iPhones and iPads. Apple uses the guidelines to decide which apps can appear in the App Store. Apple now explicitly says apps cannot host anything that looks like an app store within an app or give users the ability to “browse, select, or purchase software not already owned or licensed b...

    Why some scientists say physics has gone off the rails

    The 20th century was a remarkably productive one for physics. First, Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity helped us view gravity not as a force but as a distortion of space. Then Max Planck, Erwin Schrödinger and Werner Heisenberg gave us quantum mechanics — and a fresh understanding of the subatomic world. In the middle of the century, two new forces were discovered deep within the atom (the strong and weak nuclear forces). Finally, in the century's last decades, we got t...

    Why Can’t a Woman be More Like a Man?

    A fascinating paper about sex differences in the human brain was published last week in the scientific journal Cerebral Cortex. It’s the largest single-sample study of structural and functional sex differences in the human brain ever undertaken, involving over 5,000 participants (2,466 male and 2,750 female). The study has been attracting attention for more than a year (see this preview in Science, for instance), but only now has it been published in a peer-reviewed journal.

    Steam users below the age of 16 could soon require parental permission in order to maintain full access to the platform.

    New Zealand's 'biggest' sinkhole unearthed by dairy farmer

    A massive sinkhole has opened up on a New Zealand farm, with a volcanologist saying it is the biggest he has ever seen in the country. The crack was discovered at Earthquake Flat, 15 kilometres south-east of Rotorua on New Zealand's North Island. Vulcanologist Brad Scott visited the farm where it was discovered and said it would have taken decades for the underground cavity to grow, but was spurred on by recent heavy rain.

    We’re underestimating the mind-warping potential of fake video

    Due to advances in artificial intelligence, it’s now possible to convincingly map anyone’s face onto the body of another person in a video. As Vox’s Aja Romano has explained, this technique is becoming more common in pornography: An actress’s head can be mapped onto a porn actress’s body. These “deepfakes” can be generated with free software, and they’re different from the photoshopping of the past. This is live action — and uncannily real.
