LG to Supply Gesture-Reading System for Mercedes-Benz, Sources Say

A camera installed in the car ceiling will read the driver’s hand gestures, letting them control tasks such as turning on cruise control and adjusting music volume. BMW has already deployed a similar system in its 7 Series sedans, using technology from Softkinetic Systems, which was later bought by Sony Corp. LG already has a deal with Mercedes for a camera system that can tell if the driver is drowsy. A Jan. 8 news release by Mercedes-Benz from CES in Las Vegas showcased a new feature called ...

Planet Nine may not exist, say scientists, after finding simpler explanation

When the mysterious ‘Planet Nine’ was first hypothesised in 2016 it was hailed as the solution to the strange orbits of far-flung icy objects and the unexplained tilt in the Solar System. The finding came 10 years after Pluto had been unceremoniously downgraded to ‘asteroid number 134340’ and led to hopes that our star system would soon be restored to nine worlds. Yet despite widespread searches by the most powerful telescopes, Planet Nine has never been spotted, and now astrophysicists have put...

World to miss 2020 climate 'turning point': analysis

The world is on course to miss its "best chance" of preventing runaway climate change by ensuring global greenhouse gas emissions peak in 2020, researchers warned Tuesday. In 2017, experts identified six key milestones that mankind must hit by 2020 if the Paris climate goal of limiting global temperature rises to 1.5 Celsius (2.7 Fahrenheit) is to have a fighting chance of being met. Chief among these are an immediate phasing out of fossil fuels, including a total halt to new coal power plant ...

Migrants need better access to health care in Europe: WHO

Europe must guarantee migrants better access to health care, the World Health Organization urged Monday in its first report on the health of new arrivals to the old continent, where accessibility varies broadly. "The most important is the access to health services. To improve their health, it is important to fill the gap for access to basic care," Santino Severoni, the head of the WHO's Migration and Health Programme, told AFP.

NEW YORK --This past evening, a show-stopping celestial event -- the only total lunar eclipse of 2019 -- crossed the sky and likely captivated millions of skywatchers across the Americas and beyond, from above the Rocky Mountains to down beyond the Andes Mountains.

Amazon's Blowing Out Refurbs of Apple and LG's Co-Designed 5K Display

Nintendo Rebounds as Optimistic Signs Emerge After a Brutal Year

The possibility of price cuts for the machine, an improving software pipeline and the upcoming launch of Nintendo’s biggest mobile game in two years are all boosting confidence. It’s not that Nintendo has suddenly solved its biggest challenge: expanding Switch’s user base. With software sales for the last three months of 2018 showing strength, profits should stand up despite weaker hardware revenue when Nintendo reports results on Jan. 31, according to Pelham Smithers, who runs Pelham Smithers...

Telecom Italia Domestic Grid Spinoff Spurned by Regulator

Green-lighting the project, proposed last year by then Chief Executive Officer Amos Genish, would let the former phone monopoly continue to enjoy “a significant competitive advantage” nationwide except in Milan, Agcom said in a document posted on its website over the weekend. A separation wouldn’t ease any regulatory burden, according to the government agency, which cited Telecom Italia’s plan to retain full control of the grid. A representative for Telecom Italia declined to comment.

Skygazers in parts of the UK lucky enough to be under clear skies have been treated to the astronomical spectacle of a "super blood wolf moon".

A T. rex and a shark as neighbors? Yes, eons ago in South Dakota

The huge meat-eating dinosaur did not meet its demise in a shark attack in some sort of "Jaws" meets "Jurassic Park" monster mash. The skeleton of Sue, the largest, most complete and best-preserved T. rex ever unearthed, is displayed at the Field Museum in Chicago, which kept the leftover rock for years in underground storage. If Galagadon ever interacted with Sue, it may have been when the thirsty dinosaur came to the river for a gulp of water.

Nigeria's ruling party accuses opposition of plotting pre-vote violence

The Feb. 16 vote in Africa's top oil producer pits Buhari, a military ruler in the 1980s who was voted into office in 2015, against main opposition candidate Atiku Abubakar, a businessman and former vice president. Reliable polls are hard to find in the nation of 190 million people, and analysts widely expect a tight race, partly because opposition stronghold states have seen a bigger increase in voter registration than ones where the ruling party is popular. "We have credible intelligence tha...

Fuel thieves punctured the Tula-Tuxpan pipeline a few miles from one of Mexico's main refineries on Friday.

Late last month, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador launched a program to shut down an illegal fuel distribution network that si...
