France suggests glyphosate exit could be even slower than planned

Only half of France's farmland could do without glyphosate-based weed-killers by 2021, the country's farm minister suggested, further lowering an initial ambition to get rid of the controversial chemical by then. In November 2017, President Emmanuel Macron pledged to ban glyphosate in France within three years, rejecting a European Union decision to extend its use for five years after a heated debate over whether the weed-killer, developed by Bayer-owned Monsanto, can cause cancer.

After twin-astronaut tests, NASA readies new wave of studies on space health risks

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Almost three years after NASA astronaut Scott Kelly returned from spending nearly a year in orbit, researchers are still poring over the data collected during an unprecedented study comparing his health with that of his earthbound twin brother. They say the comparison hasn't raised any red flags about long-term spaceflight on the International Space Station. "On the whole, it's encouraging," Craig Kundrot, director of NASA's Space Life and Physical Sciences Researc...

Captain Scott lost race to South Pole because he didn't have 'class clown' in his team, scientists say

The reasons for Captain Scott’s heroic failure to become the first to conquer the South Pole have excited fevered debate for more than a century. Was the British expedition beaten by Rauld Amundsen’s Norwegian team by just over a month because of unfavourable weather; did they mismanage their supplies; was it the failure of the relief dogs to turn up that ultimately sealed Scott’s icy fate on the long return march? All these undoubtedly played a role, but now NASA scientists have come up with a ...

Uber Sues New York City Over Rule Limiting Number of Drivers

In the suit filed Friday, Uber argues the city doesn’t have the evidence to prove that claim. The company also alleges that Mayor Bill de Blasio is treating the business unfairly. According to a copy of the complaint provided by Uber, the company said the mayor doesn’t intend to review ongoing congestion studies on their merits and instead has already committed to perpetually cap the number of drivers in the city.

Iran confirms second failed satellite launch: NBC News

Iran bid to launch a second satellite in the past two months has failed, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in an interview with NBC News published on Friday. Despite both failures, Zarif's confirmation is likely to raise tensions with the United States, which is concerned the long-range ballistic technology used to send satellites into space could also be used to launch warheads. A representative for the U.S. National Security Council did not immediately respond to a request f...

The Sheer Distance Opportunity Roved Across Mars Still Has Us in Awe

With climate change, sunny day flooding incur losses too

With greater and greater frequency, the parking lot in the small historic port of Annapolis near Washington is flooded even on sunny days: water washes in, pushed by the force of ever higher tides.

"So often we think of climate change and sea level rise as these huge ide...

Mexico to inject $3.9 billion in Pemex, seeks to prevent credit downgrade

It now holds roughly $106 billion in financial debt, the highest of any national oil company in Latin America. Fitch said on Friday that the plan, which includes additional tax cuts, more government spending on the company and debt refinancing, would likely not be enough to prevent "continued deterioration" in Pemex's credit quality. The agency cited an ongoing "significant level of underinvestment" for Pemex.
