Prince Harry, Meghan visit mountain school in Morocco

The school provides education for girls from rural communities whose parents would not typically be able to afford secondary education. The brief trip is expected to be Meghan’s last international trip before she gives birth to the couple’s first child in April. The visit also includes a chance to observe horses that provide support to children with special needs.

The Mate X is Huaweis 5G foldable

The world’s fastest growing mobile company has long had a chip on its shoulder when it comes to Apple and Samsung. For too long, the company has had to go out of its way to remind the world that it’s capable of being every bit as innovative as those better established brands, a concept very much at the heart of the Mate X. The device lives right at the cross section of the year’s biggest forward looking trends — foldables and 5G, and unlike some of the concepts we’ve seen to date, the product does so with panache. And from these early glimpses, I’m mostly impressed with what the Chinese manufacturer was able to do here. Huawei’s brought some clever …

Clever dad does a hilarious photo shoot with his premature baby acting like a grown man.

Over two years ago, photographer Matt MacMillian took an adorable set of photos of his newborn daughter, Ella, playing sports. The photos showed the newborn pulling off sweet moves on a skateboard, doing flips off a diving board, and playing baseball — all things that a newborn could never do without the aid of MacMillian’s incredible Photoshop skills.

Did Bronze Age Europeans Keep Foxes As Pets?

Dogs may have firmly established their role as man’s best friend but new evidence published in Archaeological and Anthropological Sciences suggests their Bronze Age ancestors faced some competition – in the form of the nifty and more mischevious common fox, aka Vulpes vulpes. Archaeologists digging at Can Roqueta (Barcelona) and Minferri (Lleida) in the Iberian Peninsula discovered the remains of four foxes amongst a total of 64 human burials. Also present at the sites were the bones of a wolf, 32 dogs, and 19 hoofed mammals, revealing a funeral practice common to the early to late Bronze Age of burying the dead alongside domesticated animals. In one grave, for example, archaeologists found the body of an old man next to the skeleton of a single …

You kept sending Amazon stories. We couldn’t stop reading them

(CNN)What will they do in place of Amazon? That’s just a taste of what a few CNN Opinion readers had to say about the Amazon’s February 14 announcement that Long Island City would no longer be one of the two sites for its HQ2 hubs on the East Coast. From now on, no one will confuse the Queens neighborhood with Jeff Bezos’ Valentine. The LIC plan offer had been controversial since it was announced four months ago, with proponents and opposition activists alike raising their voices. Likewise, after Amazon withdrew the offer; reactions were swift, furious and remarkably lacking in consensus CNN Opinion published an op-ed by CNN anchor John Avlon on Feb. 15 that took issue with Amazon’s cushy …

Can we ever evaluate technical debt?

Every couple of months, I talk to an entrepreneur who is interested in building a marketplace for buying and selling app businesses (i.e. the actual IP and ownership of an app or other piece of software). These markets always seem to suffer from a lack of liquidity, and one reason why is that it’s really hard to know how much technical debt is latent in a codebase. First, the developer behind the codebase may not even be aware of the technical debt they have piled on. Second, until a software engineer really understands a codebase, they are almost certainly not in a position to answer a question on technical debt authoritatively. That makes it hard to get third-party opinions on …

Terrifying “Exercise Mataika” Smallpox Simulation Did Not End Well For Humanity

Smallpox has been responsible for up to a billion deaths since it emerged around 10,000 BC, before it was finally eradicated by a worldwide vaccination program. Since 1977 we have been smallpox-free. The only samples of smallpox left are kept under guard at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Vector Institute in Russia, and World Health Organization (WHO) laboratories. Yay science. However, bad news, in 2017 Canadian researchers were able to make a smallpox-like vaccine in the laboratory, raising concerns that bioterrorists could themselves synthesize a virus and unleash it on an unprepared population. Goddamnit science. Several terrorist groups have declared intent to commit biological attacks of this kind, which is especially worrying as most people have not been vaccinated against the disease. Why …

El Chapo’s lawyers concerned by juror misconduct allegations

NEW YORK – El Chapo’s lawyers are raising concerns of potential juror misconduct after a member of the jury told a news website that several jurors viewed media coverage of the Mexican drug lord’s trial against a judge’s orders. VICE News published an interview Wednesday with a juror who said at least five other members at Joaquin Guzman’s trial had followed news coverage of the proceedings, including potentially prejudicial material made public before deliberations. Defense attorney Eduardo Balarezo said the issues raised in the article “are deeply concerning and distressing” and, if true, “make it clear that Joaquin did not get a fair trial.” Trending in US Original Article : HERE ; This post was curated & posted using : …

This Pilot Got So Bored During 2-Hour Test Flight, He Wrote It In The Sky

Long flights can be boring, even for the pilots themselves. One recently qualified pilot from Adelaide, Australia was testing out a single propeller plane’s new engine this Tuesday and the trip got so dull, he decided to reveal his true feelings for all of those watching. The pilot for Flight Training Adelaide, flew out of South Australia’s Parafield Airport after he was given the assignment to run the aircraft’s engine at a specific power setting for two hours. As the plane got closer to Port Broughton, northwest of Adelaide in South Australia, he wrote the words ‘I’m bored’ on his tracking device, and apparently, not only that. Upon closer inspection, the note revealed something a bit more cheeky – two …

The Supreme Court just unanimously voted to stop the police from stealing your stuff for no reason.

via Wikimedia Commons In a landmark unanimous decision issued Wednesday, February 20, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled civil asset forfeiture unconstitutional because it violates the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition against excessive fines and fees. Civil asset forfeiture allows local law enforcement agencies to seize people’s cars, cash, homes, and pretty much anything else that is suspected of being used to commit a crime. To get their property back, citizens have to prove it wasn’t obtained illegally, even in situations where no indictment was filed. A few examples of ridiculous government overreach provided by Harvard Law Review: Mary and Leon Adams resided in their West Philadelphia house for forty-six years when the police told them to vacate and initiated a civil …
