The FBI Makes a Bizarre Claim About Pro-Choice Terrorism

The FBI is expanding its focus on domestic terrorism, and that includes pro-choice violence — even though such violence is so vanishingly rare, it’s all but nonexistent. In testimony before the House judiciary committee on Wednesday, FBI Director Christopher Wray disclosed that the bureau has recently “changed our terminology as part of a broader reorganization of the way in which we categorize our domestic terrorism efforts.” It’s part of a much-heralded reinvigoration of the bureau’s domestic ...

Microbes linked to cancer in threatened California foxes, report Princeton researchers

Microbes are known to affect digestion, mood and overall health, but cancer? A Princeton University-led team of researchers lay out a multi-step process: First, Santa Catalina foxes become infested with ear mites, which change the foxes' microbiome and allow a staph infection to take hold. The antibiotic-resistant Staphylococcus pseudintermedius infection leads to chronic inflammation of the foxes' ears -- and in that inflamed tissue, tumors can flourish.

MIT’s RFocus technology could turn your walls into antennas

RFocus asks a simple question: What if instead of just antennas and transmitters on access points and mobile devices, we put the things just about everywhere? You know, just totally slather the walls with the stuff? The new “smart surface” from MIT’s CSAIL uses in excess of 3,000 antennas to boost signal strength by nearly 10x. The department issued a paper today showcasing the technology, which is relatively cheap, with each antenna running a few cents. Better still, it’s low power, either ...

The Strangely Long List Of Obscure Names Dropped By Trump Lawyer Robert Ray

'I Tried Listening To Podcasts at 3x and Broke My Brain'

'Podfasters' listen to their favorite pods at 1.5x, even 2x speed. But how fast is too fast? From a report: Bumping the speed up to 1.5x was initially jarring. People were talking so quickly that I had to stop what I was doing and focus on the audio to keep it from falling into background chatter. After about 20 minutes of this intentional listening, however, it felt like my brain had adjusted. What at first felt rushed and slightly wrong, now felt natural. Once I found that I could go back to d...

Carriers ignore studies that show they suck at preventing SIM-swap attacks

Now that many online services rely on sending SMSes to your phone to authenticate your identify, thieves and stalkers have created a whole "SIM swap" industry where they defraud your phone company or bribe employees to help them steal your phone account so they can break into all your other accounts. In the years since SIM swap attacks were first publicized, carriers have faced litigation and congressional scrutiny for the role their lax security played in the attacks. They have added a su...

Academic Research Finds Five US Telcos Vulnerable To SIM Swapping Attacks

A Princeton University academic study found that five major US prepaid wireless carriers are vulnerable to SIM swapping attacks. From a report: A SIM swap is when an attacker calls a mobile provider and tricks the telco's staff into changing a victim's phone number to an attacker-controlled SIM card. This allows the attacker to reset passwords and gain access to sensitive online accounts, like email inboxes, e-banking portals, or cryptocurrency trading systems. All last year, Princeton academics...

The evidence shows that while telecommuters create positive change, the major resistance against telecommuting comes from management.

Through interviews, we learned that executives saw the benefits of using flexible work to their advantage as a negotiating tool for recruitment, promotion, retention and motivation, but they often worried about the costs of training an...

Baby and adult brains 'sync up' during play, finds Princeton Baby Lab

A team of Princeton researchers has conducted the first study of how baby and adult brains interact during natural play, and they found measurable connections in their neural activity. In other words, baby and adult brain activity rose and fell together as they shared toys and eye contact. The research was conducted at the Princeton Baby Lab, where University researchers study how babies learn to see, talk and understand the world.
