Wyoming: Images of the Equality State

Today's photo story is the first in a planned year-long Sunday series, focusing on each of the 50 states in the United States of America. Wyoming got its nickname "The Equality State" when it granted women the right to vote in 1869, the first state to do so. Although Wyoming is one of the 10 largest states in the U.S., it is also the least populated, with barely more than 575,000 residents. Gathe

Experiments on cuttlefish are cruel | Letter

Peta's Julia Baines deplores the supergluing of 3D glasses on to the sensitive marine animals The recent experiments on cuttlefish ( Cuttlefish given 3D glasses for test of how they judge distance , 9 January) are indefensible, curiosity-driven nonsense that benefit only the experimenters who make a living from them and from ignoring what we already know about awe-inspiring cuttlefish.

How to build a drawer out of scrap wood

The rumored Apple A14 chip

I was reading some rumors about the A14 and then read some information about other 5nm based chips that have already been made and was wondering what the capabilities would be.
