Why American cities have so many pigeons

Pigeons are a staple of American cities, yet these birds are actually native to North Africa, the Middle East, and Europe.  Europeans brought pigeons to North America in the 1600s, likely as a source of food, and the birds then escaped.  Pigeons can live on human leftovers. Plus, we feed them. Building ledges also mimic the seaside cliffs in their native range, making these birds feel right home.  Pigeons are also incredible navigators — some birds can find their way home from nearly 1,000 km a...

Terence Eden Resigns From Google AMP Advisory Committee, Says AMP is 'Poorly Implemented, and Hostile To the Interests of Both Users and Publishers'

Terence Eden: I am concerned that -- despite the hard work of the AC -- Google has limited interest in that goal. When I joined, I wondered whether I could make a difference. I hope that I have been a critical friend. The AC has encouraged AMP to think more about user needs -- rather than Google's needs. And changes to the search carousel were also a concern of the committee which have been partly addressed. Google's thesis is that the mobile-web is dying and people prefer to use apps -- there...

How materials you’ve never heard of could clean up air conditioning

Several years ago, researchers at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia and the University of Cambridge performed a series of simple experiments that could have huge implications for cooling and refrigeration. They placed plastic crystals of neopentyl glycol—a common chemical used to produce paints and lubricants—into a chamber, added oil, and cranked down a piston. As the fluid compressed and applied pressure, the temperature of the crystals rose by around 40 ˚C. It was the largest temp...
