Farewell to the 727, the ‘earth-trembling’ workhorse that brought air travel to millions

One of the aircraft that introduced the fundamentals of modern comfort and convenience to millions of travellers has flown its last passenger service. The Boeing 727 might not have been responsible for the dawn of the jet age, but its record-breaking popularity in the Sixties and Seventies was testament to the seachange it helped force when it became the stalwart of some of the world’s largest airlines. After its 1963 debut, it was the first Boeing commercial plane to sell more than 1,000 units ...

To Sell Europe on Cyber Security, IBM Turns to Big Rig Operations Center

As a journalist, I’ve covered cyberattacks and data breaches before, but it’s my first time being on the other end of that phone call. If teams wants to conduct additional training beyond that, then IBM charges, he said.

Google Considering Pulling News Service From Europe

The European Union is working towards finalizing a controversial new copyright law. The rules give publishers rights to demand money from the Alphabet Inc. unit, Facebook Inc. and other web platforms,when small fragments of their articles show up in news search results, or are shared by users. The internet giant has various options on the table and will analyze the final text before making any decisions, she said, adding that Google would withdraw its service reluctantly.

Google Fined $57 Million for Burying Privacy Terms Where Users Won't Find Them

Google has been fined $56.8 million by privacy regulators in France, marking the country’s first use of the tough new privacy rules enacted in Europe last year.

European Space Agency wants to start drilling on the Moon in an effort to find oxygen and water

The European Space Agency  (ESA) is hoping to start mining on the Moon by 2025. The ESA has signed a 12-month contract with the rocket maker ArianeGroup to study and prepare for the mission which aims to extract regolith, or Moon rock. Regolith covers the entire lunar surface to a depth of at least 12 feet, as it made up of a mix of clays, glass fragments, minerals and chemical compounds like iron oxide from which oxygen, water and fuel could be extracted. Many space agencies now believe space m...

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.

Lilly cancer drug fails key trial, will no longer be prescribed

No new U.S. patients will be started on the drug and Lilly is suspending promotion of the medicine, the company said. Lartruvo won accelerated approval in 2016 in the United States and conditional approval in Europe based on results from a promising mid-stage trial. On Friday, Lilly said Lartruvo combined with the standard-of-care chemotherapy doxorubicin did not prolong survival more than doxorubicin alone in patients with advanced soft tissue sarcoma.

Super blood wolf moon 2019: How to view Monday's total lunar eclipse in the UK

The moon's usual gleaming white hue will transform into a deep blood red on January 21 during the next total lunar eclipse - and the last total lunar eclipse Britain is expected to experience for 10 years. Most of North America, South America and areas of west and north Europe will be able to witness the space event occur later this month, while the remainder of Europe and Africa will see the end of the eclipse. From the science behind the blood moon to whether we'll be able to see it in...

Blame a wobbly polar vortex for why you're so damn cold

It's coming. The polar vortex — a spinning mass of winter-chilled Arctic air — has become wobbly and weak. It's expected to slosh down and blanket a considerable part of the East Coast and Midwest with frigid polar air beginning this weekend, bringing sub zero temperatures to some Midwestern places. "We're gonna freeze," John Martin, an atmospheric scientist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said in an interview.  The polar vortex typically lives in the high Arctic each wint...

Total lunar eclipse Sunday January 20 will be 'Super Blood Wolf Moon'

Starting Sunday evening, Jan. 20, 2019, North and South America will have a chance at seeing 2019's only total lunar eclipse, from start to finish. Our Earth, Moon and Sun line up on Sunday night for the only total lunar eclipse of of the year. Catch it if you can. And especially because it's a “supermoon.” That's when the moon is closer to Earth, and therefore looks larger and more bright than it normally does. Weather in much of the United States during the eclipse is expected to make fo...

Entertaining Clients in Hostess Bars Is Still a Thing In Asia

It’s a culture that sits uneasily with the #MeToo movement that has swept across Europe and the U.S. In parts of Asia, corporate men continue to openly drink with colleagues or business clients at venues where women escorts are paid to consume alcohol, sing karaoke and -- often illegally-- perform sexual favors, according to interviews with men and women including Regina Yuan, who works at a Shanghai-based startup.

Wi-Fi at 35,000 feet – it's coming, whether we like it or not

It was not so long ago that Wi-Fi at 35,000 feet was a pipe dream, leaving technophiles frustrated and everyone else eternally grateful. But the dawn of internet access in the sky is now and well truly behind us as more and more airlines equip their fleets with the technology. Last week low-cost Norwegian became the latest to announce that passengers on its long-haul flights would be able to browse the internet, send emails and generally while away the hours, from this year, with half its fleet ...

CERN’s plan for 100-km collider makes the LHC look like a hula hoop

The Large Hadron Collider has produced a great deal of incredible science, most famously the Higgs Boson — but physicists at CERN, the international organization behind the LHC, are already looking forward to the next model. And the proposed Future Circular Collider, at 100 kilometers or 62 miles around, would be quite an upgrade. The idea isn’t new; CERN has had people looking into it for years. But the conceptual design report issued today shows that all that consulting hasn’t been idle: th...

France to cull wild boar at Belgium border in swine fever alert

France will cull all wild boar in a zone along the Belgian border to try and avoid an outbreak of a deadly swine disease after new cases were discovered nearby in Belgium, the French agriculture ministry said on Monday. France has been on alert for African swine fever since the virus was confirmed in September among wild boar in Belgium, not far from the French border. African swine fever, harmless for humans, is often deadly for pigs, and outbreaks in eastern Europe and China have disrupted t...

Geoengineering could solve our climate problems if anyone allowed it

This weekend, I finished reading Oliver Morton’s The Planet Remade (thanks to reader Eliot Peper for recommending it). Morton has a multitude of goals with the book, but there were two I think are deeply valuable. First, geoengineering is a plausible approach to solving our climate problems this century, and second, engineering the climate generates tough policy challenges, but also opportunities to make the planet more equitable. TechCrunch is experimenting with new content forms. This is a rou...

Bulgaria's ancient Plovdiv celebrates as European culture capital

Bulgaria's southern city of Plovdiv kicked off its year as an European Capital of Culture with a lights and music show on a 30-meter high tower in the city center and fireworks that attracted hundreds late on Saturday despite chilly weather. One of the oldest inhabited cities in Europe with pre-historic settlements that archaeologists date back over 8,000 years, ancient Plovdiv is the first Bulgarian city to hold the title. Plovdiv, also known as the City of the Seven Hills, was held by Thraci...
