Elon Musk's 'incredibly expensive' tunneling plans unrealistic, says Uber

Elon Musk’s plans for underground tunnels to solve congestion in cities are unrealistic because they are too expensive to dig, Uber has said.

"It's a great thing if he can do it. The cost is really what he's up against. It really is incredibly expensive to dig holes under the gro...

America’s most stunning jerks are flocking to your national parks. Who are they?

Like an unlocked museum, national parks have been left largely defenseless during the most recent government shutdown, allowing scoundrels and cheats to tramp over unstaffed lands. While much of the federal government is funded during the longest-ever shutdown, the national parks aren't. Yet in 2018, the Trump administration made the unusual — and possibly illegal — decision to keep many of the nation's crown jewels operating with skeleton crews. Destruction, mounds of litter, and vand...

Complete list of dates for every full moon in 2019, including January's Wolf Moon

Stargazers should keep their eyes on the skies near the end of January for the first full moon of 2019, which is dubbed the Wolf Moon.

Iran says despite U.S. sanctions, it has found new 'potential' oil buyers

All countries that were granted waivers from the United States to continue buying a certain amount of Iranian oil imports are complying with U.S. sanctions, a senior Iranian energy official said, noting that Tehran was hopeful to find new buyers. The United States withdrew from a nuclear deal with Iran last year and snapped sanctions in place to choke Iran’s oil and banking industries, while temporarily allowing eight customers to keep buying crude from the Islamic Republic.
