    After literally living her best life, this model citizen wanted to be bad

    A 104-year-old woman has been granted her "greatest wish" — to be arrested by the police. Anne Brokenbrow was handcuffed at her residential care home in Bristol, in south-west England, and smiled as she was charged with being "an upstanding citizen". The centenarian was then ushered into a waiting police car and driven away with the sirens and blue lights blazing.

    What Is It Like to Be a Philosopher?

    Contrary to popular belief, not all philosophers are nerds. Nor are all nerds philosophers. I am living proof of that, since I was a nerd long before I was a philosopher. I played Dungeons & Dragons, I got good grades, I edited the school newspaper and was on the debate team. Imagine one of the kids from Stranger Things, but not heroic.

    Why Won’t These Democrats Reject Fossil Fuel Money?

    Two days before she officially launched her campaign for president, Kirsten Gillibrand made one of the smartest moves of her political career. “I signed the pledge today,” she told a group of climate change activists in New Hampshire on Friday. The senator from New York didn’t immediately specify which pledge she had taken, but it was obvious to those in attendance: Gillibrand had signed the No Fossil Fuel Money Pledge, promising not to accept any money from the oil, gas, or coal industrie...

    No Netflix films at Cannes for second year running, reports suggest

    The loss of Netflix titles was perceived by many to be a heavy blow for last year’s Cannes film festival. After artistic director Thierry Frémaux ruled that titles from the streaming giant were ineligible to compete for the Palme d’Or, Netflix head Ted Sarandos duly pulled their full roster from the Croisette. Films such as Roma, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs and many more duly played at rival festivals, before progressing to considerable acclaim.

    The U.S. Now Has More Millionaires Than Sweden Has People

    The number of wealthy households in the U.S. reached a new high last year, roughly equivalent to the entire population of Sweden or Portugal. More than 10.2 million households had a net worth of $1 million to $5 million, not including the value of their primary residence, according to a survey by the Spectrem Group. That’s up 2.5 percent from 2017.

    NASA releases the final panorama that Opportunity took on Mars

    Before a Martian dust storm took out Opportunity in June 2018, the rover was able to capture hundreds of images that NASA has now released as a panorama. The 360-degree photo is composed of 354 images overall, taken by the rover's Panoramic Camera (Pancam) from May 13th through June 10th. It shows the vehicle's final resting place in Perseverance Valley located in Endurance Crater's western rim. The rover lost touch with NASA in June after it reported the approaching storm that ul...

    Instead of a wall, what if we built an energy corridor?

    Instead of a wall, build a first-of-its-kind energy park that spans the 1,954 miles of the border between the United States and Mexico to bring energy, water, jobs and border security to the region. That's the audacious plan put forward by a consortium of 28 prestigious engineers and scientists from across the nation who propose that the two nations work together on an enormous infrastructure project...

    Here’s another way Trump is different: Flip-flopping doesn’t affect his public approval.

    Last week, President Trump reversed course on whether he’d keep U.S. troops in Syria. Just a few months ago he’d alarmed his Congressional allies and prompted his Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis to resign when he announced – via tweet – that he would withdraw all U.S. troops from Syria. Now he’s abandoned this position, announcing he’ll keep a small U.S. military force in the country.

    Even more phones will get early Android beta updates this year

    At last year's I/O, Google surprised many of us by announcing that the Android P beta would not only be available on the Pixel line-up, but also on select devices from other manufacturers. Project Treble played a huge role in making that possible, and things are going to be even better this year: more companies will be part of the Q beta than P.

    Will robots replace doctors?

    Vinod Khosla, a legendary Silicon Valley investor, argues that robots will replace doctors by 2035. And there is some evidence that he may be right. A 2017 study out of the Massachusetts General Hospital and MIT showed that an artificial intelligence (AI) system was equal or better than radiologists at reading mammograms for high risk cancer lesions needing surgery.

    Discovery Alert! Kepler's First Planet Candidate Confirmed, 10 Years Later

    Despite being the very first planet candidate discovered by NASA’s Kepler space telescope, Kepler-1658b had a rocky road to confirmation. The initial estimate of the planet’s host star was off, so the sizes of both the star and Kepler-1658b were vastly underestimated. It was later marked as a false positive — that is, scientists thought the data did not really point to a planet — when the numbers didn’t quite add up for the effects seen on its star for a body of that size.

    2018 was SeaWorld’s comeback year

    SeaWorld Orlando’s parent company reported another strong quarter of attendance, revenue and income growth to wrap up 2018, making the year one of the company’s best in the post-”Blackfish” era. That 2013 documentary, which criticized the use of captive killer whales in SeaWorld parks, led to years of slumping attendance at the Orlando park. But the company’s fortunes changed in 2013, as it reported positive results in each quarter.

    For the first time in years, Apple is hiring more software people than hardware people

    Apple started as a hardware company. Its first product was a kit: a box of hardware that customers had to assemble on their own. There was no software included. That, again, was up to the customer. But what eventually differentiated Apple was its user-friendly software that made the hardware disappear. Product design has always been a critical difference-maker for the company — the iPhone's capacitive touchscreen, the iPods simple elegance, the MacBook's slim profile — but as the c...
