Researchers at a US university have developed a new kind of radar which — when equipped with some AI wizardry — can help cars see round corners. Princeton university engineers have created a type of Doppler radar, typically used to catch speeding cars, that bounces radio waves off stationary objects to effectively “see” around corners. Coupled with algorithms that interpret how the radiowaves reflect off secondary objects, the radar can interpret moving objects that are out of human view. It kin...

Large fish photographed in Loch Ness

Tourist Steve Challice, from Southampton in England, thought he was merely taking a photo of a "big fish" in Loch Ness while on holiday in Scotland. That's not how Loch Ness works, buddy. As reported by The Daily Record, he posted his shot online only to prove, to the satisfaction of many, that Nessie is alive and well. He estimated that it was 30 feet away and about 8 feet long. He stated that it was only during lockdown that he has had time to look through the photos he had taken from his two ...

Earth from Space, episode 1, review: the astonishing money shots of life from on high

In the parallel universe in which I get listed in Who’s Who, my hobby will be set down as “staring out of aeroplane windows”. (From the air, obviously.) The gift of flight has given humanity a bird’s-eye view of the world which never ceases to astonish. Earth from Space (BBC One) tapped into that wonder with the help of satellite photography that, freakily, can zoom in on an elephant in Kenya. The result was an hour of television – with three more to come – that was long on awe. Images of the Sa...

Solo Female Travel in England, Scotland, and Wales — A UK Guide

I have spent a LOT of time traveling alone in England, Scotland, and Wales. Much more than I originally intended. I went to Europe without a plan, ended up living for months at a time in two different cities in England, and used them as a base to explore the country. I never thought the UK would become one of my most extensively traveled countries. At the time, I was more interested in warmer, sexier, more exotic travel destinations — the UK seemed so boring compared to Thailand or Italy or Sou...

Road tripping the Scottish Highlands

Few adventures are as memorable as exploring the northern reaches of Scotland by road. You’ve learned to drive on the left-hand side (or coerced a British friend into driving), secured a car, and you’re ready to begin your road trip through the Scottish Highlands. There’s only one problem: the Highlands are huge. With so many ancient towns, castle ruins, and imposing mountains scattered throughout this vast landscape, it can be tough to know where to start, or how to plan the most scenic rout...
