Samsung's Doing Everything It Can to Make the Galaxy Fold's Crease Invisible

Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Fold flexible smartphone-slash-tablet isn’t without tradeoffs. For one, it might be way thicker when folded than virtually any other modern smartphone—potentially as thick as a Nintendo Switch—while the way it folds is pretty awkward. And like its competitor the Huawei Mate X, it has a big…Read more...

Angkor decline gradual rather than catastrophic: study

Angkor, the ancient capital of the Khmer empire, appears to have suffered a gradual decline rather than a catastrophic collapse, according to a study published on Monday. Archaeologists and historians have long sought to explain the 15th-century abandonment of Angkor, with many attributing it to the 1431 invasion by Thai forces from Ayutthaya. "The historical record is effectively blank for the 15th century at Angkor," said Dan Penny, a member of a team of Australian and Cambodian archaeologis...

What can writing down your meals do for weight loss?

The more often people log what they eat, the more weight they may lose, according to a new study from researchers at the University of Vermont. “Logging your food intake is one of the best predictors of losing weight and keeping it off,” Dr. Jean Harvey, professor of nutrition at the University of Vermont and the lead author of the study, told ABC News. Approximately 40 percent, or 93.3 million adults in the U.S. are obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Startup Gets Ready for Factory Robots Working Alongside Humans

The company raised $15 million late last month, bringing total financing to around $28 million, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Patrick Sobalvarro said in an interview. Veo’s proprietary technology uses lidar sensors to create real-time maps of factory work spaces, so that robots can slow or stop completely when human workers get too close. There are more than 2 million industrial robots in operation worldwide, mostly toiling inside metal safety cages.

Elon Musk’s Lawyers Defended Tweet to SEC as Rehash of Vetted Statement

The tweet “was intended to recapitulate” a statement from an earnings call 20 days earlier -- and pre-approved by Tesla’s general counsel -- in which Musk predicted Model 3 output “should allow us to get to the 10,000 vehicles a week rate or very close to it by the end of the year,” according to the attorneys’ Feb. 22 letter to the SEC included in court filings Monday.

The ESA captures stunning images of ancient waterways on Mars

Mars as we know it today is a dusty, dried-up ball of rock with a little bit of ice here and there, but things were much different a long time ago. Through the various missions undertaken by NASA and the European Space Agency we've known for a while now that Mars once had a whole lot of water on its surface.Now, a new set of images from ESA's Mars Express satellite offers a look at what was once a very wet area of the Red Planet.

Samsung and Huawei Double Down on Apple's High-Price Phone Strategy

Apple kicked off the trend in 2017 with the iPhone X. Its latest premium iPhones, the XS and XS Max, cost as much as $1,450. This past week, Samsung and Huawei doubled the bet, pricing their folding phones at $1,980 and about $2,600, respectively. Apple’s rivals have co-opted the company’s strategy of trying to squeeze more cash out of stagnating unit sales, pushing the price of some phones well above what many people would pay for a laptop computer.

Roundup weed killer factor in man's cancer, US court told

The weed killer Roundup was a "substantial factor" in the cancer of a US man who developed a lump in his throat after decades of spraying his garden, his lawyer said Monday at the start of the first ever federal trial targeting its manufacturer for negligence. Edwin Hardeman, 70, treated his property in Sonoma County, California, regularly with the Monsanto-made herbicide from 1980 to 2012 and was eventually diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, the San Francisco court heard.

China defense budget likely to defy slowing economy due to Taiwan worries

The defense spending figure is closely watched worldwide for clues to China's strategic intentions as it develops new military capabilities, including aircraft carriers and anti-satellite missiles. In 2018, China unveiled its largest defense spending increase in three years, setting an 8.1 percent growth target for the year, fuelling an ambitious military upgrade program and making its neighbors nervous. China plans to set a lower economic growth target of 6-6.5 percent in 2019 compared with l...

Climate change kills off clouds over the ocean in new simulation

We all know climate change is affecting weather systems and ecosystems around the world, but exactly how and in what way is still a topic of intense study. New simulations made possible by higher-powered computers suggest that cloud cover over oceans may die off altogether once a certain level of CO2 has been reached, accelerating warming and contributing to a vicious cycle. A paper published in Nature details the new, far more detailed simulation of cloud formation and the effects of solar radi...

Brexit to harm UK's cherished health service, experts say

Although a no-deal Brexit was the worst scenario, even a negotiated divorce from the European Union would also damage the National Health Service (NHS), the experts said in a review published in The Lancet journal. Britain is scheduled to leave the bloc on March 29th, and Prime Minister Theresa May has yet to secure parliament's backing for her negotiated EU withdrawal agreement. The Lancet review, led by three UK health policy specialists, found that even under this deal or potential variatio...

Venezuela hit with new U.S. sanctions after clashes over food aid on border

As Colombia's foreign minister warned about "credible threats to the life" of Venezuela's opposition leader Juan Guaido, the Trump administration also took its pressure campaign to the United Nations Security Council, asking it to discuss the situation in Venezuela, diplomats said. The U.S. Treasury Department's sanctions were imposed on four Venezuelan state governors allied with the government of President Nicolas Maduro, blocking any assets they control in the United States.
