    Is Gasparilla’s treasure real? We went with these friends to find it.

    The band of treasure hunters met at the boat ramp behind the Nav-A-Gator bar before 7 a.m. One of their boats wouldn’t start. Mike Gattuso examined the battery as his lit cigarette dangled over the gas tank. He couldn’t coax the motor to life. And so, everyone piled into a single bass boat made for two. Five treasure hunters, one treasure hunter’s boyfriend, a photographer and a reporter in search of pirate gold. There was not a life jacket in sight, but the floor was piled high with mache...

    Trump is a slapstick genius for the comically disastrous way he runs the country

    “The Play That Goes Wrong,” a British slapstick comedy, finished a short run at the Kennedy Center this month, so most Washingtonians didn’t get to see its characters stepping on each other, getting struck by falling objects and stymied by stuck doors, forgetting their lines, missing their cues, and eventually having the whole set fall down around them.

    Google Pixel 4 May Be Completely Notchless, Patents Show

    It seems that Google may be stepping up its Pixel design game and ditching that giant ugly notch. A new patent filed with the World Intellectual Property Organization shows a clean display devoid of notches, holes, foreheads or chins. It’s actually the second patent that describes a notchless, almost bezelless Pixel. Phone site 91mobiles reported on that one yesterday.

    Scientists have discovered a defect in the engines of Russia’s new flagship heavy lift space rocket that could destroy it in flight, an apparent setback to a project President Vladimir Putin has said is vital for national security. The Angara A5, which was test-launched in 2014, is being developed to replace the Proton M as Russia’s heavy lift rocket, capable of carrying payloads bigger than 20 tonnes into orbit. A launch pad for the new rocket is due to open in 2021.

    Hands-on with Nike’s self-lacing, app-controlled sneaker of the future

    I flew across the country to Portland to experience the Adapt BB, Nike’s new self-lacing, Bluetooth-enabled sneakers, but the guy showing me around campus is wearing a pair of Zoom Flys that refuse to stay tied. Within 10 minutes of tying them, they’re untied again, flailing all over. I hate when people point out my untied shoes, but his feel intentional. Of course I notice the laces. Of course I point them out. He laughs and swears he’s not doing this on purpose, that Nike hasn’t delibe...

    Why screen time studies can’t measure the effect of smartphones on our well being

    What is the correlation between screen time and adolescent well-being? It’s an important question for which we have limited and often contradictory answers. A story in Wired this week all but let our phones off the hook for any negative consequences — but I wonder if the study fully understands the way we live now. Much of the research to date on the potential effects of screen time on well-being relies on self-reported data from massive surveys, Wired reports.

    The Evidence on Age Discrimination in the Workplace

    The baby boomers have entered their golden years and medical advances are helping people to live longer; the combination is leading to an aging U.S. population. Statistics tell the story clearly. In 2000, slightly more than 12 percent of the U.S. population was over the age of 65. By 2020, that number will be close to 17 percent and by 2050 it will likely reach 22 percent. Our society must find ways to financially support this segment of the population for more years than ever before as life exp...

    Report: Apple developing new iPod touch, 2019 iPhones could switch to USB-C

    According to a new report from supply chain blog Macotakara, Apple could be in the process of developing a revised iPod touch. Further, the report says the 2019 iPhone might make the jump to USB-C, just like the 2018 iPad Pros. The report is rather vague, with Macotakara citing supply chain sources. Details on what changes a new iPod touch might feature are unclear at this point, but it is long overdue for an update. The 6th generation iPod touch was released in 2015 and for $199 with 32GB of st...

    'Less Than Human': The Psychology Of Cruelty

    During the Holocaust, Nazis referred to Jews as rats. Hutus involved in the Rwanda genocide called Tutsis cockroaches. Slave owners throughout history considered slaves subhuman animals. In Less Than Human, David Livingstone Smith argues that it's important to define and describe dehumanization, because it's what opens the door for cruelty and genocide.

    Will I Always Face The Threat Of A Peanut-Laden Kiss Of Death?

    Whenever I see a report touting possible new peanut allergy treatments, I devour it. I can’t help it. It’s an occupational hazard for any health journalist whose reporting specialty and medical history intertwine. I write about the business of health care, focusing on how consumers interact with the system — what we pay, what we get and why American care costs so much. But in this particular instance, I have another kind of authority: 26 years of life-threatening allergies to nuts and peanuts.

    Face Unlock Feature Is Useless in 4 out of 10 Phones

    After testing 110 smartphones from multiple vendors, the Dutch Consumentenbond not-for-profit organization concluded that the face unlock feature in 42 of them can be circumvented using a high-quality portrait photo of the owner. Therefore, 38% of all the devices they tested would allow malicious third parties to immediately unlock phones that only use facial recognition as a locking mechanism and to gain access to all the data contained within, from photos to sensitive banking and personal data...

Then she quit that job, having decided to upend the field rather than “teaching the received gospel to a bunch of credulous college students.”

    We thought the Incas couldn’t write. These knots change everything

    The Incas left no doubt that theirs was a sophisticated, technologically savvy civilisation. At its height in the 15th century, it was the largest empire in the Americas, extending almost 5000 kilometres from modern-day Ecuador to Chile. These were the people who built Machu Picchu, a royal estate perched in the clouds, and an extensive network of paved roads complete with suspension bridges crafted from woven grass. But the paradox of the Incas is that despite all this sophistication they never...
