How Discovery Fits Into the Star Trek Timeline

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 21:25:41 +0100

It’s been 12 long years since Star Trek graced the small screen. But beginning Sept. 24, a new series will “boldly go” first to CBS and then to the network’s streaming service, CBS All Access. Star Trek: Discovery is about Michael Burnham, a human orphan taken in by Vulcans who grows up to be a Starfleet Officer. But how does Discovery fit into the larger Star Trek timeline? The CBS series will serve as a prequel to the original Star Trek, set 10 years before the adventures of Kirk and Spock. The writers have said that Discovery will maintain continuity with the old series, and events from Discovery will explain plot points in the original Trek. For Trek nerds out there, this means Discovery takes place in the “prime” timeline, which is where each of th...



Russian Hackers Targeted Voter Registration Systems in 21 States Before 2016 Election

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 21:25:12 +0100

The federal government is telling election officials in 21 states that hackers targeted their systems last year, although in most cases the systems were not breached. States that told The Associated Press they had been targeted include Alabama, Colorado, Illinois, Maryland, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin. In most cases, they had not known until notified Friday by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Homeland Security officials tell the AP that in September hackers believed to be Russian agents targeted voter registration systems in more than 20 states. The disclosure to the states comes as a special counsel probes whether there was any coordination during the 2016 presidential campaign between Russia and associates of Donald Trump.

What Is the Difference Between a Hydrogen Bomb and an Atomic Bomb?

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 21:01:02 +0100

North Korea warned this week that it might test a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean, after saying the country had already successfully detonated one. A hydrogen bomb has never been used in battle by any country, but experts say it has the power to wipe out entire cities and kill significantly more people than the already powerful atomic bomb, which the U.S. dropped in Japan during World War II, killing tens of thousands of people. As global tensions continue to rise over North Korea’s nuclear weapons program, here’s what to know about atomic and hydrogen bombs: Why is a hydrogen bomb stronger than an atomic bomb? More than 200,000 people died in Japan after the U.S. dropped the world’s first atomic bomb on Hiroshima and then another one three days later in Nagasaki duri...

(ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.) — A bake sale at the University of New Mexico set up by a nonprofit group to charge students based on race and ethnicity ended after outraged opponents disrupted it. The group, Turning Point USA, set up what it called an “Affirmative Action Bake Sale” on campus Thursday with a sign advertising higher prices for Asians and Caucasians and cheaper prices for African Americans and Hispanics. William Witt, a Turning Point regional director, said the bake sale was aimed at generating a conversation about affirmative action programs. “Certain groups get different opportunities than other groups, and we believe it doesn’t give equal opportunity,” he said. But protesters outnumbered the people who set up the bake sale, and the members of Turni...

Sound familiar? This is Roy Moore, the former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court who was removed from this position not once but twice — first in 2003, for refusing to remove a monument to the Ten Commandments he’d had installed in the state courthouse, and again in 2016, for defying the U.S. Supreme Court over its ruling on gay marriage. Now he’s running for Senate, but he’ll have to get past another Republican who’s backed by President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

The U.S. Education Department rolled back Obama-era Title IX guidelines on investigating cases of sexual assault on campus Friday, prompting criticism from victims’ rights groups and cheers from organizations representing people accused of assault. “Today, Betsy DeVos and the Trump Administration chose to tip the scales in favor of rapists and perpetrators,” the group End Rape on Campus said in a statement. “Rolling back this guidance is an affront to the students, survivors, and allies who have fought to bring the sexual assault epidemic out of the shadows.” One key change in the new interim guidance is that now schools are directed to choose which standard of evidence to use in investigating sexual assault cases. Under the Obama Administration, schools were...

Towns Forced to Evacuate After Guajataca Dam Fails in Puerto Rico

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 20:25:42 +0100

(SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico) — A failing dam prompted emergency evacuations of two towns in northwest Puerto Rico on Friday as the U.S. territory struggled with flooding, an island-wide power blackout and other dangers in Hurricane Maria’s wake. The National Weather Service in San Juan said Friday that the northwestern municipalities of Isabela and Quebradillas, home to some 70,000 people, were being evacuated with buses because the nearby Guajataca Dam was failing. Details remained sketchy about the evacuation with communications hampered after the storm. The 345-yard (316-meter) dam holds back a manmade lake covering about 2 square miles and was built decades ago, U.S. government records show. All across the battered island, residents feared power could be out for weeks — o...

The Trump Administration Could Change How its Travel Ban Works

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 20:02:13 +0100

The Trump Administration is considering replacing the so-called travel ban with more narrowly tailored travel and screening restrictions for foreigners coming to the United States. The changes are expected as a review period called for in the President’s executive order banning travel from six Muslim-majority countries comes to a close. The review period ends on Sept. 24, but officials at the Department of Homeland would not confirm whether or not a decision would come before then. The Administration also did not say whether the six countries covered under the travel ban would be affected by the changes nor did it give any indication of how many countries could be covered by the new rules. The proposed changes come a week after President Trump tweeted that the travel ban should be &...

Vice President Pence Cited a Fake Thomas Jefferson Quote. Here ’s How to Avoid the Same Mistake

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 19:36:09 +0100

Politicians and pundits often cite the Founding Fathers to prove that their views on the role of government are in line with the original vision for American democracy. But misquoting them has also become something of a tradition in itself. The latest such gaffe happened on Fox & Friends on Thursday. In the course of a discussion about Sens. Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy’s bill to revamp the Obama-era Affordable Care Act, Vice President Mike Pence backed up his argument with these words: “Thomas Jefferson said, ‘Government that governs least governs best.’” Except Thomas Jefferson didn’t actually say that. Pence is not the first to make the mistake. The late columnist William F. Buckley, Jr. and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker have done so too, an...

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 19:00:26 +0100

Health care has been in the spotlight this year — and most of the focus has been on what is not working for the American people. Like many other industries that have undergone significant transformation before health care, the way forward is rarely simple or defined. There is no question it’s time for the health care industry to reflect the changing needs of America. Yet, is the health care system so broken that — to solve for 30 million more people getting access to high-quality, affordable care — we must throw out what is currently working for the 300 million people who have access to coverage while we are working on the real issue of affordability? Since the end of World War II, the building block of the American system of health care has been employer-based co...

Worried About Getting Around London if Uber ’s Gone? Here Are 3 Alternatives

The news that London’s transportation agency declined to renew Uber’s operating license set off panic Friday as commuters could face the prospect of navigating without one of the city’s accessible forms of transport. But there are a few Uber alternatives in London for people who want to get around without their own car. Unfortunately for riders, Lyft is not one of them, as it doesn’t operate in London.

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 18:42:40 +0100

While Jay Z has always taken an interest in politics — both he and wife Beyoncé campaigned for both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in past elections — he’s been particularly outspoken recently about causes he feels passionately about, whether it’s the war on drugs or jail system. It appears that the Brooklyn rapper, whose real name is Shawn Carter, is now taking the same vocal approach when it comes to President Donald Trump and his administration. In an interview with BBC Radio 1 on Friday, he shared that he found the Trump presidency to be “a joke,” but that he remains hopeful looking to the future. “I believe that we are resilient, especially us as black people and especially the culture. We’ve been through so much more than this...

This Song Just Became Spotify ’s Most-Streamed Track of All Time

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 18:12:34 +0100

Step aside, “One Dance:” there’s a new top song in town. It’s Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You,” the irresistibly catchy (and ubiquitous) dancehall-inspired song from his blockbuster album ÷. And as of Sept. 22, it’s officially Spotify’s most-streamed track of all time. Released back in January, “Shape of You” has racked up over 1.3 billion streams on the music platform, besting Drake’s previous most-popular track from April 2016 — also of the dancehall variety — by about a million streams. “Shape of You” has also showed impressive staying power, remaining in the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 for a record-setting 33 weeks, and taking the top spot for twelve of those weeks.

Robert Mueller ’s Russia Investigation Is Moving Really Fast. Here’s Why

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 18:12:28 +0100

It’s hard to know what special counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation is doing, but it’s clear that it’s going quickly. Experts on independent investigations, including some who have worked with them in the past, say that the former FBI director is moving on an aggressive timeline as he looks into Russian attempts to influence the 2016 election. They say that could help keep it from getting bogged down or off track, like some past investigations. “We don’t want it to be spread out,” says Solomon Wisenberg, who was second-in-command in the Whitewater/Lewinsky investigation into President Bill Clinton. “It’s not good for the country if it’s spread out for four or five years. I think to me that’s a good sign, it’s a sign ...

‘We Could Do Better.’ John McCain Says He Won’t Back Republican Obamacare Repeal Bill

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 18:08:44 +0100

Sen. John McCain said Friday that he “cannot in good conscience” support the Graham-Cassidy bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act, an announcement that makes it extremely unlikely the bill will pass. The Arizona Republican, who is good friends with co-sponsor Sen. Lindsey Graham, had previously cast the decisive vote against the last Obamacare repeal effort in July, arguing that the Senate had not followed the proper procedure for major legislation in Congress. In a statement, he made the same criticisms of the current bill. “I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal,” he said. “I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not really tried. Nor could I support it without knowing how much it will cos...

How Architecture Should Adapt to Climate Change

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 18:01:27 +0100

Ever since humans left their caves, providing shelter has been the focus of their architectural endeavors. Perfecting the art over time, we have come to think of buildings as permanent. When we build, we do it for eternity. Still, whenever disaster strikes, buildings invariably burn, flood or collapse. We have seen a lot of that in the news lately. Grenfell Tower, hurricanes Harvey and Irma and Maria, the Mexican earthquakes, to name a few. Confronted with the fragility of our structures — and the ever-growing power of the elements they face — we start asking questions, search for solutions and, inevitably, turn to architects for answers. It can give one hope to see the hands-on interventions that architects have provided in the immediate aftermath of disasters. Some have turn...

It ’s Been One Year Since the World Took On Superbugs. Here’s What’s Changed

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 17:58:27 +0100

This week marks one year since world leaders met at the United Nations General Assembly in New York City in 2016 and unanimously committed to tackling antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The risks of not doing so were clear: a recent report estimated that if AMR continued to spread at its current rate, there would be up to 10 million deaths globally by 2050. On Thursday, leaders gathered once again, in a less formal setting near the UN, to discuss what progress has been made one year later. “We are not where we should be,” said Professor Dame Sally Davies, the chief medical officer of England, during her keynote speech kicking off the meeting. Davies said that while there was significant pressure to move quickly on the issue after the 2016 UNGA, the movement stalled for about six ...

‘Homosexual Conduct Should Be Illegal,’ and 5 Other Things GOP Senate Candidate Roy Moore Has Said

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 17:12:51 +0100

Republicans in Alabama will go to the polls Tuesday to choose their party’s candidate for the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions when he became President Donald Trump’s Attorney General. The incumbent candidate is Luther Strange, the former state Attorney General who has been holding Sessions’ seat on an interim basis — and who has Trump’s endorsement. But the frontrunner is Roy Moore, a 70-year-old former Chief Justice of Alabama’s Supreme Court. He was suspended from his post last year, after bucking the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriage. On his campaign website, Moore says he was “upholding the sanctity of marriage as between one man and one woman.” That’s one of his tamer statements. Here are some of his ...



Tory Burch: Why Equal Pay Is Good Business

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 17:10:53 +0100

When I was fundraising for my company 15 years ago, I was told to never say the words “social responsibility” and “business” in the same sentence. Thankfully, in the ensuing years, corporate foundations and social responsibility have become a given for innovative companies. But astoundingly, 54 years after the United States passed the Equal Pay Act, women still do not have pay parity with men, especially women of color. Recently, the current U.S. Administration halted the equal pay data collection rule, which aimed to help close the wage gap by having large companies report what they pay employees by race and gender. The White House argued that this would put too large a burden on businesses. Whether you agree or not, it’s clear something must be done, and we...



‘Game Plan to Survive.’ Teen Gets Locked in Cave for 60 Hours With No Cellphone Signal

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 17:05:23 +0100

(BLOOMINGTON, Ind.) — A 19-year-old man who spent 60 hours locked alone inside a gated southern Indiana cave says he feels lucky to be alive. Indiana University freshman Lukas Cavar was on a spelunking trip to Sullivan Cave about 10 miles south of Bloomington when he became separated Sunday afternoon from 12 other members of the university’s Caving Club. When he eventually reached the cave entrance, Cavar found club members had padlocked its gate, unaware that he remained inside. He couldn’t get a cellphone signal and screamed for hours, hoping motorists passing on a nearby road might hear him. “It took me a little while to wrangle my emotions and sort of approach things analytically, sensibly, to come up with a game plan to survive,” Cavar said Thursday, two...



The True Story Behind the Battle of the Sexes Movie

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 16:59:21 +0100

The 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs was a spectacle made for Hollywood. King was at the top of her game, the first female player to win over $100,000 in a year. Riggs was an over-the-hill showboat and self-declared chauvinist pig with a gambling problem. Riggs hoped for one last minute of fame, King to prove that women deserved as much prize money and respect as men. Ninety million people tuned into “The Battle of the Sexes,” and 44 years later Emma Stone and Steve Carrell are bringing the match to the big screen. The movie details both the on-court drama and the behind-the-scenes turmoil affecting the two tennis legends. The married King had recently begun an affair with a woman, while Riggs was struggling to connect with his family. Here’s wha...

Pennywise the Clown Dancing the Macarena Is the It Meme You Never Knew You Needed

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 16:50:24 +0100

Bill Skarsgård’s Pennywise in the movie adaptation of Stephen King’s It is a monster for the ages. But that hasn’t stopped the Internet from turning the killer clown into a hilarious meme. Playing off a moment near the end of the horror flick in which a curtain falls to reveal Pennywise dancing a jig meant to terrify one of his intended victims, a new parody Twitter has taken to superimposing the scene with a number of popular songs. The page has hilariously remixed the sequence with tunes like Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” Village People’s “Y.M.C.A.” and the Macarena by Los Del Río. “Pennywise can dance to anything,” the bio reads. “This account is proof.” Even King himself appears to be a fan of t...

Rand Paul: GOP ’s ‘Fake Repeal’ Health Bill Is Setting Up a ‘Perpetual Food Fight’

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 16:48:54 +0100

(WASHINGTON) — President Donald Trump used Twitter Friday to slam Sen. Rand Paul and other Republicans who might oppose the GOP’s last-gasp effort to topple the Obama health care law. Paul fired back, calling the Senate bill “fake repeal” and saying the White House just wants a victory without caring about the legislation’s details. “Rand Paul, or whoever votes against Hcare Bill, will forever (future political campaigns) be known as “the Republican who saved ObamaCare,” Trump tweeted. It was Trump’s second attack in three days on Paul, R-Ky., for so far being the only GOP senator to say he’ll vote against the bill in a Senate showdown looming next week. Because of united Democratic opposition, the measure would fail if just three...



Gigi Hadid Transformed Into a Literal Bouquet for This Runway Show Because Fashion

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 16:45:37 +0100

While fashion is characterized by its capricious attitudes towards convention — look no further than Raf Simons’ $200 roll of accessorizing duct tape — it’s probably safe to say that Moschino creative director Jeremy Scott has cornered the market on keeping the fashion flock on their toes with his irreverent and playful collections that often riff on corporate branding and pop culture (past collection themes have included McDonald’s and Barbie.) Case in point? His zany Spring/Summer ’18 runway show for Moschino where he sent supermodel Gigi Hadid down the runway dressed as a human bouquet, swathed in a sea of flowers and wrapped up with large red bow. While it’s yet to be seen how wearable this look will be in real life, it made for a spectacular s...

Sec. Albright, Sen. Coons: Donald Trump Must Realize Diplomacy Protects America

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 16:35:11 +0100

Now that Congress has reconvened to continue work on urgent foreign policy challenges — from the North Korean nuclear threat to our continued role in Afghanistan to the challenge of a rising China — we hope Republicans and Democrats will support funding for diplomacy and development as vital tools of national security. More than 70 years ago, in the wake of the horrors of World War II, President Harry Truman addressed a United Nations Conference in San Francisco. He challenged Americans and our international partners “to rise above personal interests, and adhere to those lofty principles, which benefit all mankind.” After witnessing the destruction of two world wars, the rise of fascism and the horrors of genocide, Truman and the country sought a new world order ro...

This ‘Evil’ Carpet Design Is Driving the Internet Mad

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 16:34:20 +0100

This is one illusion that we could all probably do without. A store’s wildly disconcerting space-time continuum carpet design has gone viral after a Twitter user snapped a picture of the trippy optical illusion and tweeted it out, sending viewers into a tizzy. (Such a tizzy, in fact, that it was liked more than 90 thousand times as of Friday afternoon.) “Whoever designed this floor is evil,” Twitter user @MrMuselk noted. “THATS [sic] A FLAT CARPET.” The wavy grid pattern on the (magic?) carpet makes it look as though the floor has potholes scattered across it — and whoever manages the store decided to put the display kiosks only on the spots that appear flat, giving the illusion even greater impact. As Nerdist reported in the past, the carpet is from Ege...

Jimmy Kimmel Is an Unlikely Health Care Advocate. Here ’s Why He’s So Effective

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 16:10:11 +0100

This week, Jimmy Kimmel has been closer to the heart of American political discourse than any television star, save for the former host of The Apprentice. The ABC host’s ongoing nightly campaign against what would happen if Obamacare is repealed under current Republican plans reflects his deep engagement with the news — all the more jarring because of Kimmel’s amiable, unwonkish persona. That Kimmel is bringing passion and informed urgency to the conversation around the future of health care is laudable. That the conversation is happening at all on late-night network television proves that we’re living in a fairly remarkable moment. Kimmel’s evolution into health care crusader began this spring, when the host tearfully told the story of his newborn son’...
