Uber To Offer Benefits Package To Drivers In Britain

Workers driving for Uber in Britain will be able to access illness and injury cover under a new scheme from the San Francisco-based company, which has faced legal obstacles over the way it treats its staff. Uber, which allows users to book and pay for a taxi via a smartphone app, said on Thursday it would help fund a program which provides benefits to those workers also willing to contribute. “Drivers who make money through Uber tell us they love the freedom of being their own boss and choosing...

Has S.E.T.I. Been Successful With A Cost Of $100 Million?

STANFORD, Calif. — A $100 million search for intelligent aliens has come up with some intriguing leads but has revealed no evidence of E.T. so far. Observations of nearly 700 stars by the Green Bank Telescope (GBT) in West Virginia revealed no compelling signs of alien civilizations, representatives of the Breakthrough Listen project, which led the observations for the E.T. search, announced Thursday (April 20). Team members also unveiled the GBT’s 11 “most significant” observed...

Automakers Urge California To Relax Rules On Self-driving Cars

Automotive manufacturers are urging the state of California to further ease its proposed regulations for autonomous vehicles, saying the state did not respond to their earlier objections by making enough revisions to its planned set of rules for self-driving cars. At a public hearing in Sacramento monitored via webcast, automakers urged California to drop some additional proposed regulations and leave much of the oversight to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. But safety and...

Can Tatooine Like Planets Support Alien Life?

Can Tatooine Like Planets Support Alien Life?

Life on an alien planet with two suns in its sky, like Luke Skywalker’s home world Tatooine in the “Star Wars” films, may indeed be possible, a new study suggests. A Tatooine world could be habitable despite its inevitably complicated orbit, as long as the planet stays within a particular range of distances from its two host stars, researchers said. “This means that double-star systems of the type studied here are excellent candidates to host habitable planets, despite the...

Is Silicon Based Life Possible?

Is Silicon Based Life Possible?

Science fiction has long imagined alien worlds inhabited by silicon-based life, such as the rock-eating Horta from the original Star Trek series. Now, scientists have for the first time shown that nature can evolve to incorporate silicon into carbon-based molecules, the building blocks of life on Earth. As for the implications these findings might have for alien chemistry on distant worlds, “my feeling is that if a human being can coax life to build bonds between silicon and carbon, nature...

FCC Votes To End Pricing Caps On Business Data Services

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission has approved plans to deregulate the providers of the business data lines connecting broadband service to many small businesses, schools, hospitals and ATM machines. The deregulation of business data services, or BDS, could mean broadband price increases for those businesses as well as for mobile phone customers, critics said. BDS provides the backhaul that connects mobile towers to the wired internet. The commission’s 2-1, party-line vote ends price...

Is Toshiba Out Of The Woods?

Toshiba Corp’s shares finally recovered this week after Japanese broadcaster NHK reported that Apple is considering a multi-billion-dollar investment into the company’s semiconductor chip business. Back in February, Toshiba revealed that it had been considering a split of its memory chip business into a separate company to help make up for a $6.56 billion write-down of its US nuclear equipment operations. In late December, the company’s shares fell more than 45 percent after revealing that...

Astronomers Find Supermassive Black Hole In Tiny Galaxy

An incredibly powerful supermassive black hole has been found at the center of a tiny galaxy that is merging with another larger galaxy, a new study shows. NASA’s Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) has imaged a system known as Was 49. The system consists of a large disk galaxy called Was 49a that is colliding with a smaller dwarf galaxy called Was 49b, located about 26,000 light-years from the larger galaxy’s center.  Data from the NuSTAR mission, along with information from...

Security Researcher Develops Method To Test For NSA Spying

Wondering lately if your PC has  been infected with a suspected NSA spying implant? A security researcher has come up with a free tool that will find out. Luke Jennings of security firm Countercept wrote a script in response to last week’s high-profile leak of cyberweapons that some researchers believe are from the National Security Agency. It’s designed to detect an implant called Doublepulsar, which is delivered by many of the Windows-based exploits found in the leak and can be used to...

Want To Digital Share Your Drink Over The Internet?

Researchers in Singapore say they have invented a “virtual lemonade”, using electrodes to emulate the flavor of the beverage and LED lights to imitate its color, that could one day allow people to digitally share drinks over the internet. “We are primarily motivated by the fact that our current digital interactions are not supportive for sharing beverages and food, which is something very common in our everyday lives,” said Nimesha Ranasinghe, who led the team that did the...

DeeDee Becomes A Dwarf

DeeDee Becomes A Dwarf

The solar system’s dwarf-planet population is about to increase by one. The far-flung object 2014 UZ224 — informally known as DeeDee, for “Distant Dwarf” — is about 395 miles wide (635 kilometers), new observations reveal. That means the frigid object probably harbors enough mass to be shaped into a sphere by its own gravity, entitling it to “dwarf planet” status, researchers said. Astronomers first spotted DeeDee in 2014 using the optical Blanco telescope at the...

Facebook Gives Preview Of Futuristic Brain-to-text Program

Facebook Inc has provided a peek inside a secretive unit headed by a former chief of the Pentagon’s research arm, disclosing that the social media company is studying ways for people to communicate by thought and touch. Facebook launched the research shop, called Building 8, last year to conduct long-term work that might lead to hardware products. In charge of the unit is Regina Dugan, who led a similar group at Alphabet Inc’s Google and was previously director of the U.S. Defense Department’s...
