    Comey Hits Trump Where It Hurts: 'I'm Like A Breakup He Can't Get Over'

    Former FBI Director James Comey told “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert that President Donald Trump just can’t quit him. “He’s tweeted at me probably 50 times,” Comey said on Tuesday’s program. “I’ve been gone for a year. I’m like a breakup he can’t get over.” Trump attacked Comey on Twitter repeatedly last week, calling him an “untruthful slime ball” and a “proven LEAKER & LIAR” ahead of the release of the former FBI director’s book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.

    New tomato variety resistant to many insects

    A wild tomato from the Galapagos Islands has been discovered by scientists from Wageningen University & Research to be resistant to a wide range of pest insects. This variety is closely related to the cultivated tomato, making the resilience easier to interbreed into the latter and ultimately making it resistant to many different types of insects.

    'Dear Mark, this is why I hate you.' An open letter to Zuckerberg

    Fuck you. Oh, sorry, were you expecting something politer? Senators might thank for you volunteering to appear in Congress, but you helped Russian propagandists influence an election and exposed the personal data of over a billion people, so I think we're past the point of being grateful. Still, there you were, answering questions you shouldn’t have to answer. (Not because they were stupid, but because, simply by asking a question like, “How will you protect us from terrorism,” democr...

    UK 'confident' of Syria air strike success

    The UK is "confident" that air strikes carried out by Britain, the US and France on suspected chemical weapons facilities in Syria have been successful, the PM has said. Theresa May also said it had been "right and legal" to take action. Military bases near the capital Damascus and the city of Homs were targeted, after an alleged chemical attack on the Syrian town of Douma. Jeremy Corbyn called it "legally questionable" in a letter to Mrs May.

    Colombia takes 'unprecedented' step to stop farms gobbling forests

    Indigenous communities that depend on Colombia's Amazon rainforest for their survival will have more say over their ancestral lands, as Colombia adds 8 million hectares to its protected areas in an effort to stem forest loss. The new measures announced by Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos on Tuesday aim to create a buffer zone for the country's southern Amazon region. Farmers are pushing deeper into forests, cutting down more trees to clear land for cattle-grazing and agriculture.

    World's largest solar battery? Tesla's may get beat

    An energy company wants to build another huge solar farm in the California desert — and it may come with the world's biggest battery. That battery would be triple the size of the one Tesla drew worldwide attention for building in Australia last year. The Crimson solar project would span 2,500 acres of public land south of Interstate 10, east of Palm Springs at the base of the Mule Mountains.

    A new kind of ransomware forces you to play PUBG to unlock your files

    "Ransomware" is malicious software that works basically like a computer virus, except that instead of destroying your data, it locks it down until you pay whatever ransom the creators decide to extort. The WCry ransomware unleashed last year, for instance, spread quickly and caused particular grief amongst hospitals in the UK, leading to wards being closed and patients turned away. Not all such attacks are quite so malicious, however.

    Woman ‘embalmed alive’ in hospital error

    A RUSSIAN woman was killed after allegedly being embalmed alive in a horrific medical blunder. Ekaterina Fedyaeva, 27, is said to have died after medics put her on a formalin drip — a solution containing formaldehyde — instead of saline. She was in hospital for an unspecified but routine surgery when she was injected with formalin, normally infused into the veins of the dead to prevent decomposition. Her mother accused physicians of “murder” following the incident in her home city of ...

    Marital Rape Not A Crime, Indian Court Says, Drops Charges Against Accused

    On Monday, a high court in Gujarat, India, found a doctor, accused of raping his wife, not guilty because there exist no laws against marital rape in the Indian Penal Code. The judge presiding over the case ordered the partial quashing of the FIR filed against the doctor at Idar in Sabarkantha district, Gujarat, by the latter's wife, who accused the former of subjecting her to mental and physical torture and forcing her to have oral sex.

    Mini Brains Just Got Creepier—They’re Growing Their Own Veins

    The first human brain balls—aka cortical spheroids, aka neural organoids—agglomerated into existence just a few short years ago. In the beginning, they were almost comically crude: just stem cells, chemically coerced into proto-neurons and then swirled into blobs in a salty-sweet bath. But still, they were useful for studying some of the most dramatic brain disorders, like the microcephaly caused by the Zika virus.

    This Sex Cult Documentary Is the Craziest Show on Netflix

    In 1981, the followers of Indian spiritual guru—and alleged “sex cult” leader—Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh purchased a 64,000 acre ranch in the middle of Oregon. Soon, thousands of followers dressed in red were swarming into the state and constructing an entire town with everything from a pizza parlor to an airport, placing sex ads in the local newspaper, and cheering as the Bhagwan was driven around in his literal fleet of Rolls Royces. And then things got weird.
