More than half of Americans want stricter gun laws, Pew study finds

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 16:13:58 -0400

(image) Among gun owners, the survey found clear differences in firearm usage based on partisan affiliation. More than half of Americans want stricter gun laws, while still preserving the rights of most people in most places to carry most types of guns, a Pew Research Center survey has found. While half of Americans see gun violence as a very big problem in their country, fewer than 10% of American adults said that “almost no one” should be able to legally own a gun, and only 10% said that “almost no types” of guns should be legally available to buy.

US Energy Secretary Rick Perry told he lacks 'fundamental understanding' of climate science

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 03:57:00 -0400

(image) The American Meteorological Society has told Rick Perry he lacks a ‘fundamental understanding’ of science after the US Energy Secretary claimed carbon dioxide was not a primary cause of climate change. The former governor of Texas told CNBC TV that “the most likely the primary control knob [for climate change] is the ocean waters and this environment that we live in”, rather than greenhouse gas emissions produced by human activity. Becoming the latest of Donald Trump’s administration to dispute established science without any attempt at reasoned argument, Mr Perry also said it was “quite all right” to be a sceptic about climate change, suggesting the trait was one held by any “wise, intellectually engaged person”.

Donald Trump says he is willing to negotiate with Republican senators to pass controversial healthcare bill

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 09:16:00 -0400

Mr Trump acknowledged in an interview with Fox News that a lack of support from the four Republicans leaves the party's overhaul of former President Barack Obama's signature healthcare policy on a “very, very narrow path” to victory.

Removing Assad no longer priority in Syria: Macron

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 06:01:41 -0400

(image) France no longer sees the departure of President Bashar al-Assad as a priority in the Syrian conflict, President Emmanuel Macron said Thursday, making the policy official for the first time. The new French leader said instead that fighting jihadists such as the Islamic State group had to be the international community's number one goal in a conflict that grew out of protests against the Syrian president in 2011 but has since become increasingly complex and multifaceted. "The real change I've made on this question, is that I haven't said the deposing of Bashar al-Assad is a prerequisite for everything," Macron said in an interview with several European newspapers, including Britain's Guardian, Spain's El Pais and Germany's Sueddeutsche Zeitung.

Man invents tsunami sensor, internet obsesses over his dog

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 11:47:44 -0400

(image) This pensive dog upstaged his owner and wasn't even aware of it. SEE ALSO: Friendly island doggo followed a street view mapper and photobombed all his shots Inventor Jerry Paros posed for a photograph for an article in the publication Nature about his invention — an ultra precise quartz sensor that could contribute to an early-warning system designed to detect shifts in the sea floor that cause tsunamis. Tsunamis are caused primarily by earthquakes that occur in the seafloor, since rapid shifts in elevation can generate waves that cross oceans in a matter of several hours. In 2011, a massive tsunami hit northern Japan following a magnitude 9.0 earthquake off the coast, resulting in the meltdown of nuclear reactors at the Fukashima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. The article and the photograph were shared on Nature's Twitter page.  Meet the man hoping to transform the way we gather data from the seafloor to detect the next big earthquake: — Nature News&Comment (@NatureNews) June 21, 2017 While many found the article interesting, most people were busy obsessing over Paros' photobombing canine companion.

Israeli court stands up for woman in airline gender seat swap case

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 07:49:08 -0400

(image) A court has told the Israeli airline El Al that it can no longer ask women passengers to switch seats if ultra-Orthodox Jewish men object to sitting next to them, an Israeli advocacy group said on Thursday. A case for damages from the carrier was brought by 83-year-old Renee Rabinowitz, who was asked by a flight attendant, after boarding a flight from Newark to Tel Aviv in 2015, if she would agree to move. The airline has said it tries to accommodate ultra-Orthodox men, who cite religious beliefs in seeking to avoid close proximity to women other than their wives, but never pressures female passengers to accede to a seat swap request.

New photos show us what the final Model 3 design will probably look like

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 16:31:18 -0400

Tesla's final Model 3 unveiling is set to take place next month, but an enterprising Redditor happened to spot a Model 3 charging at a Supercharger station in California and managed to take the most detailed and instructive photos we've seen yet. Whereas most of the Model 3 photos we've seen in recent weeks have been taken of a Model 3 in motion, the most recent crop of Model 3 photos were carefully taken while the car was sitting still. What's more, the Tesla employee driving the car reportedly told the Redditor that the Model 3 design is "pretty much" final at this point. While this is admittedly a second-hand blurb, it stands to reason that this is indeed accurate given that July is right around the corner. So without further ado, featured below are a series of photos which provide us with our crispest look yet at what the shipping version of the Model 3 is actually going to look like. The front-on view is essentially similar to what we've seen from the beginning, with the Model 3 below in the center and flanked by two Model S vehicles. And now a side view for good measure. A shot of the Model 3 from the rear. A close-up shot of the interior gives us our first solid look at what the final steering wheel design may look like. Alas, this is a far cry from the spaceship style design Elon Musk promised on Twitter many months back. Moving along, this shot of the interior showcases an elegant wood trim, in line with other Model 3 spy shots we've seen over the past few weeks. Note that the display on the Model 3 is 15-inches and a tad smaller than the display that comes standard on both the Model S and the Model X. Not much too see here, just a Model 3 getting some juice. And last but not least, pictured below is a Model 3 with a decidedly unorthodox rims. Pictures aside, we also have a pretty firm grasp on what type of specs the Model 3 will bring to the table. According to an official product sheet from Tesla that was released not too long ago, the entry level Model 3 will have a 0-60 time of 5.6 seconds and a minimum range of 215 miles on a single charge.[...]
