  • US property crisis looms as sea level rises, experts warn        Mon, 18 Jun 2018 06:31:50 -0400

    US property crisis looms as sea level rises, experts warn

 Along sun-splashed shorelines in the US state of Florida, home prices are on the rise, developers are busy building new complexes, and listings just blocks from the beach describe homes that are "not in a flood zone," meaning no flood insurance is required. A reality check may come sooner than many may think, according to a report out Monday by the Union of Concerned Scientists, which finds as many as 64,000 coastal residences worth $26 billion in Florida are at risk of chronic flooding in the next 30 years, the life of a typical mortgage. Across the United States, 311,000 coastal homes with a collective market value of about $120 billion in today's dollars are at risk of chronic flooding by 2045, it said.

  • Fields of dreams: Texas project seeks new corn strains for whiskey      Sun, 17 Jun 2018 16:23:05 -0400

    Fields of dreams: Texas project seeks new corn strains for whiskeyBy Jon Herskovitz COLLEGE STATION, Texas (Reuters) - A master distiller and a crop scientist who specializes in corn breeding are working on a project they hope one day will help bring local identities to American whiskeys. Seth Murray, a top corn breeder at Texas A&M University, and Rob Arnold, working on a doctorate at the school while making whiskey for a Fort Worth distiller, are trying to develop commercially viable strains of corn with identifiable flavors, in the same way as specific grapes define the taste of wine from California's Napa Valley or a Bordeaux produced in southwest France. If the project proves successful, it might not be until the middle of the next decade that it will produce a commercial whiskey.

  • Audi boss arrested in diesel probe      Mon, 18 Jun 2018 07:00:12 -0400

    Audi boss arrested in diesel probeAudi chief executive Rupert Stadler was arrested Monday in connection with parent company Volkswagen's "dieselgate" emissions cheating scandal, with prosecutors saying they feared he might try to destroy evidence. The dramatic development comes a week after Munich prosecutors raided Stadler's home, accusing him of fraud and the falsification of documents that allowed diesel vehicles equipped with cheating software to be sold to European customers. Prosecutors in the Bavarian state said the arrest was justified because of the "risk of concealment of evidence".

    Dogs Might Have the Secret to Losing WeightLike humans, some dogs are more prone to obesity than others. A new study on dog behavior may help us better understand how human personalities affect obesity. Scientists in Budapest, Hungary asked volunteers to bring in their pet dogs, which the scientists would separate into groups based on whether they were average weight or obese.

    Space Is Truly the Final Frontier (For the Next Great War)The weaponization of space is inevitable, but there’s still time to make it as peaceful as possible. Chow is formerly a senior physical scientist for twenty-five years at the RAND Corporation and described the inevitability of space weaponization in his article “Space Arms Control: A Hybrid Approach." He argues that this will be the result of spacecraft that can remove debris and service existing satellites.

  • Mount Everest, the high-altitude rubbish dump      Sun, 17 Jun 2018 07:06:50 -0400

    Mount Everest, the high-altitude rubbish dumpDecades of commercial mountaineering have turned Mount Everest into the world's highest rubbish dump as an increasing number of big-spending climbers pay little attention to the ugly footprint they leave behind. "It is disgusting, an eyesore," Pemba Dorje Sherpa, who has summited Everest 18 times, told AFP. As the number of climbers on the mountain has soared -- at least 600 people have scaled the world's highest peak so far this year alone -- the problem has worsened.

    Trump's NASA Moon Shot May Start With Robots Before AstronautsPresident Donald Trump’s administration wants to send robotic explorers to the moon as early as next year and do another human lunar landing within 10 years, according to a NASA spokeswoman. The push could result in the first Americans stepping foot on the moon’s surface 55 years after doing so for the first time, NASA spokeswoman Megan Powers said. Meanwhile, Trump plans to sign a directive Monday to better track and monitor space debris as commercial and civil space traffic increases.

  • How behavioral economics is being used against you      Sun, 17 Jun 2018 17:40:27 -0400

    How behavioral economics is being used against youNobel Prize winning economist Richard Thaler tells people to “nudge for good” — not everyone follows his adviceParamount Pictures/courtesy Everett CollectionBookmakers use ‘nudge theory’ to get gamblers to place riskier bets, car-sharing services use prompts to keep people working and video-subscription services start videos before the credits have rolled on the last one to keep people watching. Nobel Prize winning economist Richard Thaler’s nudge theory has helped workers beef up their retirement accounts to the tune of nearly $30 billion, gotten people to eat more fruits and vegetables, and even helped men improve their aim into urinals. Nudge theory is based on the idea that small tweaks in “choice architecture” — in other words, how choices are presented to consumers — can help steer people toward decisions that will benefit them.
