Yogaia features live interactive online yoga courses that feel just like your neighborhood studio

These lockdowns are brutal on everybody. While many “essential” workers and locations remain in limited operation during this crisis, there are a few other places that many would argue should definitely be deemed essential. Like the gym. Or your favorite yoga studio. Sure, they might seem like luxuries, but considering the amount of tranquility and personal well-being that comes after a healthy yoga session, that time feels pretty darn necessary for lots of practitioners. Even if your yoga guru ...

Possible Dinosaur DNA Has Been Found

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Scientific American: The tiny fossil is unassuming, as dinosaur remains go. It is not as big as an Apatosaurus femur or as impressive as a Tyrannosaurus jaw. The object is a just a scant shard of cartilage from the skull of a baby hadrosaur called Hypacrosaurus that perished more than 70 million years ago. But it may contain something never before seen from the depths of the Mesozoic era: degraded remnants of dinosaur DNA. [...] In a study published earli...

Deep Sea Squid Communicate By Glowing Like E-Readers

An anonymous reader quotes a report from NPR: Deep in the Pacific Ocean, six-foot-long Humboldt squid are known for being aggressive, cannibalistic and, according to new research, good communicators. Known as "red devils," the squid can rapidly change the color of their skin, making different patterns to communicate, something other squid species are known to do. But Humboldt squid live in almost total darkness more than 1,000 feet below the surface, so their patterns aren't very visible. Instea...

The Pirate Bay Blocked By MalwareBytes But Normal Service Will Be Resumed

The Pirate Bay returned to the clear web this week after a month-long hiatus. However, the structure of the infamous torrent index presented an access problem to users of the popular anti-malware software MalwareBytes, which persistently blocked an essential element of the platform due to the presence of "a few" cryptocurrency miners on a secondary domain. TorrentFreak reports: The problem lay in The Pirate Bay's setup. Aside from cosmetic changes to some pages, the site sends requests to anothe...

6 Medical Professionals Who Are Killing It On Social Media

Social Media is a funny place.

Weekend reading: Whoops, there goes the economy

What caught my eye this week. T he graph of this week’s GDP forecast from the Office for Budget Responsibility looks like something from a comic book: Great Recession? “Pah!” says Covid-19. “Hold my drink…” That’s not an economic projection – that’s the punchline to a three-panel cartoon. Of course the hope is that like a sack full of garden manure dropped onto a trampoline, what goes down must surely bounce up again. And it will. But how? Will we see a V-shaped recovery? A U-shaped recover...

Top investors predict what’s ahead for Boston’s VC scene in Q1

Before the COVID-19 pandemic shook up the world and reshaped the economy, Boston was quietly setting records.
