Aubrey Plaza's mischief as an intern began long before she played the sardonic April Ludgate on Parks and Recreation . During college, she briefly served as a page at NBC , where she spent her time sharing fake facts on the tours she led and sneaking off to vomit away her hangovers. Unsurprisingly, Plaza lasted only a few months before being asked to leave, but in her short stint at the network,

Are we doomed through AI or will it generate new opportunities (an optimists viewpoint)
It's pretty easy to paint a dystopian picture of the fate of mankind at the emergence of AI. It's harder to paint a picture of what we think the world will evolve to be in the coming years. That's what I'm thinking about. So here goes, please pile on. We can not stop AI from polluting the internet with ungoverned systems. Ethical rules are a great idea but which of the major players would ever en

Something Weird Is Happening on Saturn's Snow-Covered Moon, Scientists Say
Saturn's tiny ice-covered moon Enceladus isn't only suspected to hold a liquid ocean beneath its icy crust — it's also covered in an astonishing amount of fuzzy, snow-like material, puzzling scientists. According to a new study published in the journal Icarus , the tiny moon may have been far more tectonically active over time than previously thought, with snow cannon-like plumes erupting from ma
Residents Annoyed by Crypto Mine That Emits Constant, Horrible Noise
Ceaseless Sound Cryptocurrency has gone from boom to bust, but in a small North Carolinian town called Murphy nested in the Blue Ridge mountains, it persists with a grating blare. That's courtesy of a local crypto mine packed from end to end with towering arrays of computers and noisy fans, which run indefatigably nearly year round. Mike Lugiewicz, a local, told CNN that it was like a "small jet
If You Go Outside, You May Be Able to See an Awesome Green Comet
Green Comet Earth
Catch the Comet If it's a clear night in the Northern Hemisphere, there's a decent chance you'll be able to spot a giant, green comet passing by our planet from your backyard. It's an exceedingly rare event. According to astronomers, it won't stop by again for roughly another 50,000 years — and now is the best time to see it on its current visit, as Insider reports . According to NASA , the comet

Welcome to the age of 'dark copers' – where morbid curiosity is a means of survival | Emma Beddington
From haunted dolls to horror films, there is a big appetite right now for fear-as-fun. Are we all just practising for what 2023 throws at us? A friend gleefully informed me that you can buy haunted dolls – "vessels" for unquiet spirits – on eBay. Rebekkah Sexual Spirit ("her vessel is missing an arm … she says she does not care") has been snapped up, but you can get Maggie ("NOT A TOY"; "a vast m
Setting pulses racing: the Reading scientists perfecting broad bean bread
By making their nutritious bread taste like normal white loaves, scientists aim to help disadvantaged It's creamy-white in colour with a deep brown crust. It has a mild floury taste but with a moreish salty tang. It crisps up nicely in a toaster, and it's the perfect accompaniment to butter, jam or hummus. This is bread – but not as you know it. Scientists at the University of Reading are finding
For more than 15 years, Wikipedia discussed what to call the third child of Ernest Hemingway, a doctor who was born and wrote books as Gregory, later lived as Gloria after undergoing gender-affirming surgery, and, when arrested for public disorderliness late in life, used a third name, Vanessa. Last year, editors on the site finally settled the question: The Gregory Hemingway article was deleted,
Translated by Eugene Ostashevsky In late February 2022, the Russian artist Daria Serenko co-founded the Feminist Anti-War Resistance, an underground network of Russians protesting the invasion of Ukraine, publicizing Russian war crimes against Ukrainians, and helping Russian men evade conscription.

Throughout my career studying and practicing American foreign policy, I've frequently been asked, What keeps you up at night? Is it China? Russia? Terrorism? Climate change? Another pandemic? While these issues all demand our attention, in recent years, I have found myself saying something else: The most urgent threat to American security and stability stems not from abroad but from within, from
MPs urge asbestos company to pay £10m to fund cancer research

Dark energy 'chameleon trap' wins £100,000 prize for Nottingham scientist
Ingeniously simple lab experiment led by Prof Clare Burrage recognised by Blavatnik awards Dark energy is the enigma at the heart of modern physics: the universe is supposed to be awash with the stuff, but it has never been seen and its nature is unknown. When faced with a mystery of such epic proportions, simply eliminating certain options is considered a success. This week such an advance, usin
H.C. Ørsteds opdagelse af elektromagnetismen i 1820 gav dødsstødet til de optiske telegrafer. Flere forsøgte sig med elektriske telegrafer, inden Samuel Morse i 1832 konstruerede det telegrafapparat, som om end i betydeligt forbedret form anvendes i dag, skrev Tidsskrift for Industri i 1904.

Fourscore years and more: greater longevity is a false challenge | Robin McKie
In 10 years, a quarter of the British population will be over 65. Yet it's not lifespan but healthspan we should be trying to improve Over the past 180 years, lives in England have gone through a remarkable transformation. Men and women today are, on average, living twice as long as they did in 1841 with life expectancy increasing from 40.2 years to 78.6 years for males, and from 42.3 years to 82
