    Daily Caller News Foundation Electric Vehicles Emit More Pollutants Than Fossil Fuel-Burning Cars, Says Study A study from the University of Edinburgh shows that electric and hybrid vehicles emit as many, if not more, atmospheric toxins than fossil fuel-burning vehicles. The study, conducted by Victor Timmers and Peter Achten at the University of Edinburgh, and published by the journal Atmospheric Environment, found that heavier electric vehicles produce as many pollutants as their lighter weight conventional vehicles. Electric vehicles tend to produce more pollutants from tire and brake wear, due in large part to their batteries, as well as the other...

  • People are reportedly sharing fewer personal updates on Facebook

    The Verge ^ | 4/7/2016 | Jacob Kastrenakes
    Has your Facebook feed turned into a stream of brand updates, memes, and re-shared videos? That's partly because Facebook wants it that way, but it's also partly because people are posting fewer personal updates to Facebook than they used to, according to a report in The Information. Overall sharing reportedly fell 5.5 percent from mid-2014 to mid-2015, so Facebook has fewer posts to choose from for your News Feed. But the bigger issue is this: people are posting far fewer of their own personal updates — stories about their thoughts, their life, what they're up to — to Facebook. The...

    Some programming languages are so bad, so dangerous, that the full weight of the US federal government must be brought to bear on ending their use. That's the premise of a petition now seeking signatures at the "We the People" section of the White House web site. The petition, entered on the site March 16, 2016, asks the government to, "Outlaw programming languages that threaten the safety of the American people and work counter to our way of life." The petitioner is even kind enough to provide examples of these evil and dangerous languages. Which programming languages deserve the fate...

Now, Apple has confirmed that there are issues with the iOS 9.3 update for older iOS devices and that it is pulling the update for select devices. In a statement issued to iMore, Apple explained that updating older devices, including the iPhone 5s and earlier and the iPad Air and earlier, can require customers to enter the Apple ID and password used to originally set up the device. If the user doesn’t remember this information, they can be blocked...

    The Irish Times ^ | 5/20/2016 | ukmini Callimachi, Alissa J Rubin, Laure Fouquet
    Investigators found crates’ worth of disposable cellphones, used and discarded after being meticulously scoured of email data. All around Paris, they found traces of consistent and improved bomb-making materials. And they began sketching in the details of a multilayered terrorist attack that evaded detection or prevention until much too late. In the immediate aftermath of the Paris terror attacks on November 13th, French investigators came face to face with the reality that they had missed the signs that the Islamic State was able to mount large and sophisticated international terrorist strikes. Now, the arrest on Friday of Salah Abdeslam, the...

    A gay Central Michigan University professor has pleaded guilty for falsely claiming that a random guy at a Toby Keith concert called her a “cross-dressing fag,” punched her in the face and spat on her. The professor, Mari Poindexter, had alleged that the man approached her at the Aug. 19 concert at the Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort in Mount Pleasant, Mich., reports The Morning Sun, a local newspaper. The man began hurling a rich tapestry of obscene slurs at Poindexter, she told police. Later that night, the professor said, the same man ambushed her in the parking lot of...

    Oculus founder Palmer Luckey has poured water on the idea of his Rift virtual reality headset supporting the Mac by saying that Apple doesn't make any computers powerful enough to run it. "That is up to Apple and if they ever release a good computer we will do it," Luckey tells ShackNews when asked about Mac support. "It just boils down to the fact that Apple doesn’t prioritize high-end GPUs. You can buy a $6,000 Mac Pro with the top of the line AMD FirePro D700, and it still doesn’t match our recommended spec." Apple's high-end Mac Pro computers come...

    These celebrities had some, uh, extreme responses to the possibility of Donald Trump winning the White House. Rev. Al Sharpton has said he’s “reserving my ticket to get out of here if he wins.” The View’s Whoopi Goldberg said, “I don’t think that’s America. I don’t want it to be America.” “Maybe it’s time for me to move,” she added. And Raven-Symone imparted this gem. Funnily enough, someone on a Nova Scotia island may have the answer to their problems. An online campaign called “Cape Breton if Donald Trump Wins” is offering Trump haters a new home. Nova Scotia. Trump’s...

    The long hours and grueling pace of the presidential campaign may be finally catching up with a rapidly aging Bill Clinton. During an appearance in Bluffton, South Carolina on Friday, a former Marine interrupted Clinton’s speech and asked him to address what Hillary was going to do about the VA. “What do you think should be done with the VA?” Clinton said in a raspy voice, turning the question back on him and yielding the floor. “The thing is, we had four lives in Benghazi killed and your wife tried to cover it up,” the Marine responded, eliciting boos and...

Paul Fields was promoted from captain to major in charge of Special Operations.

    Loadout Room | December 22, 2015 | Scott Witner
    This past week the Naval Special Warfare Command made a decision to pick up the Glock 19 as the SEALs new sidearm. They will slowly begin to phase out the Sig P226, and replace those with the Glock 19. There is nothing wrong with the Sig P226. It has served the Teams for many years and is a proven reliable system. However, as firearms evolve the military needs to keep pace. In this case the move to the Glock 19 makes sense. The Glock 19 has a lot to offer in a compact package, and is by far the most...

    DECEMBER 22--Angered by her husband’s repeated farting in bed, a Florida woman allegedly elbowed, kicked, and scratched her spouse, according to police who arrested her for battery. Dawn Meikle, 55, is facing a misdemeanor charge following a 3:20 AM confrontation in the Port St. Lucie home she shares with her husband Donald. As detailed in a December 11 arrest affidavit, Donald told cops that “while he was lying in bed he passed gas,” which prompted Dawn to begin “elbowing him on his arm.” When Donald’s flatulence continued, “Dawn began kicking him and eventually kicked him out of their bed,” police...

    Many open-source developers were happy when Apple announced that it was open-sourcing its popular Swift language. They weren't so happy, however, when Apple claimed it was also "the first major computer company to make Open Source a key part of its strategy." Ah, I don't think so. Many older open-source programmers think, with reason, that's nonsense. True, Apple has used open-source software for years, but that's not the same thing as making open-source development "a key part of its strategy." It would be more correct to say that Apple was the first major company to take advantage of open source....

    The United States Navy announced that it will be phasing out certain out-of-date styles and items of the working uniform through Oct. 1 and introducing other new styles, the military publication Stars and Stripes reported Tuesday. Authorities said they wanted to update the uniform using new technology and limit the number of items a sailor needs to buy each year, and to keep the seabag each person brings onboard a naval ship as light as possible. The most significant change was to the Navy coveralls, eliminating the blue set except for work that would soil other uniforms. Officials had already...

    North Korea on Saturday threatened South Korea with "indiscriminate" military strikes unless it halts cross-border propaganda broadcasts, and issued fresh nuclear weapons warnings against the United States. The threats came amid escalating military tensions on the Korean peninsula following a landmine attack South Korea blamed on the North and ahead of a major South Korea-US joint military exercise condemned by Pyongyang. They also coincided with celebrations in both Koreas to mark the 70th anniversary of the Korean peninsula's 1945 liberation from Japanese colonial rule.

Officials held their first public meeting on the subject Friday afternoon, explaining that an early analysis of water samples shows the presence of heavy metals, including lead, arsenic, cadmium, aluminum, copper and calcium at varied levels. Sediment has also poured into the river. The meeting drew about 250 people, with many sitting on the floor, standing and spilling into the hallway. Dave Ostrander, the EPA’s regional director...

And Huckabee decided the U.S. Air Force’s B-52 bomber best represented this supposedly sad state of affairs. Actually, the Air Force owns 76 B-52Hs. It used to have 94, but in 2008 then-president George W. Bush — yes, a Republican — cut the fleet by 18. One of the 76 active airframes suffered an accident recently and Obama’s Air Force brought...

It seems 3301 was able to break into Planned Parenthood's servers via a Blind SQL injection attack.

This followed the sacking of Victoria Taylor, a popular site admin, after a Reddit Q&A with the Rev. Jesse Jackson went badly for the activist preacher. High-traffic subreddits dedicated to movies, gaming, videos, history, science and art have been voluntarily locked by their moderators as an act of protest against the decision, which they saw as a symptom of an increasingly overbearing management that takes...

    Some four years after adding TRIM support for first-party solid state drives to OS X, Apple incorporated the command for aftermarket drives as part of Tuesday's OS X 10.10.4 update. Spotted by AppleInsider readers, the new capability allows users to enable TRIM functionality on third-party SSDs without resorting to unsanctioned workarounds or software. Prior to the change, Apple only supported TRIM on original Mac SSDs. Enabling TRIM for non-OEM drives requires the trimforce command be entered into Terminal, specifically, sudo trimforce enable. The system throws up a message warning users of potential incompatibility with certain SSDs before performing a reboot...

    Former talk show host Rosie O’Donnell was ready to adopt her second child, until she got some unexpected news from the doctor. That’s when the birth mother, Jami Weaver, said the child was rejected. Jami Weaver claims that the agreement fell through when she learned her unborn child was diagnosed with gastroschisis (a congenital deformity where the bowel protrudes through the abdominal wall) last summer. 'Rosie told me she could not handle having a special needs child,' she said. Perhaps if she’d have done some research, O’Donnell would have discovered that babies with gastroschisis have a 90 percent survival rate,...

Following an investigation by officers responding to a reported stabbing, the suspect took off on foot and officers were forced to chase him down to secure the arrest.

Glenn somehow managed to not only defecate in the back seat of the patrol car, he managed to...

    Things are going to look a lot different in IndyCar this year. Since 2012 all of the teams competing in the series have used the same car to keep the racing close and control costs, with only the engines and paint schemes to set them apart. The open wheel racers are designed and built by Dallara, and cost about $349,00 each, but starting this season the two engine manufacturers, Chevy and Honda, will also be providing unique aero kits that will allow teams to modify the performance of their vehicles by changing the bodywork.

    A Southern California high school basketball coach has been suspended and faces accusations of mercilessly running up the score after his team won a game 161-2, one of the most lopsided scores in state history. Arroyo Valley High girls' coach Michael Anderson was suspended for two games after the victory last week against Bloomington High. Anderson said that he wasn't trying to run up the score or embarrass the opposition. His team had won four previous games by at least 70 points, and Bloomington had already lost a game by 91.

    The U.S. Air Force has a complicated relationship with its low- and slow-flying A-10 Warthog attack jet. And that’s putting it mildly. The flying branch has tried more than once to retire the ungainly A-10 in favor of speedier planes, only for lawmakers to block the move. But on at least one occasion, the Air Force actually defended the heavily-armored, gun-armed Warthog from an unlikely challenger—a modern version of the World War II P-51 Mustang that Congress for some reason really loved.
