TechCrunch’s Top 10 investigative reports from 2019

Facebook spying on teens, Twitter accounts hijacked by terrorists, and sexual abuse imagery found on Bing and Giphy were amongst the ugly truths revealed by TechCrunch’s investigating reporting in 2019. The tech industry needs more watchdogs than ever as its size enlargens the impact of safety failures and the abuse of power.

Scientists Use Stems Cells From Frogs To Build First Living Robots

Cy Guy writes: Having not learned the lessons of Jurassic Park and the Terminator, scientists from the University of Vermont and Tufts have created "reconfigurable organisms" using stem cells from frogs. But don't worry, the research was funded by the Department of Defense, so I'm sure nothing could possibly go wrong this time. "The robots, which are less than 1mm long, are designed by an 'evolutionary algorithm' that runs on a supercomputer," reports The Guardian. "The program starts by generat...

How to Create a Social Media Policy for Employees

You can tell how long someone has worked in social media by asking about their biggest gaffe. The mis-tweet that was deleted as quickly as it was sent. The time Facebook went live from a phone inside a pocket. Accidents happen, sure. But as social media enters its second decade of being someone’s job, accidents can become major offenses. Even fireable ones. No one wants to lose their job because of social media, so employees and employers must align on the proper ways to use social media on com...

New silk materials can wrinkle into detailed patterns, then unwrinkle to be 'reprinted'

Tufts engineers have developed silk materials that can wrinkle into highly detailed patterns -- including words, textures and images as intricate as a QR code or a fingerprint. The patterns are stable, but can be erased by flooding the surface of the silk with vapor, allowing the surface to be printed again. The researchers demonstrate multiple examples of the silk wrinkle patterns, and envision a wide range of potential applications for optical electronic devices.

Read a poem for Kate and Kingsley Tufts winners this Easter Sunday

It’s spring and so the poets, like swallows to Capistrano, make their return to Claremont. Except that unlike the mission down by Doheny where the birds can be fickle — some years they just fly somewhere else — the poets without fail come to the campus of Claremont Graduate University in April. That’s because the school administers (lovingly so) the Kingsley and Kate Tufts Poetry Awards every year, one of the rarest birds in the world, an event in which verse and money meet. The Kingsley annuall...

Hacker dumps thousands of sensitive Mexican embassy documents online

A hacker stole thousands of documents from Mexico’s embassy in Guatemala and posted them online. The hacker, who goes by the online handle @0x55Taylor, tweeted a link to the data earlier this week. The data is no longer available for download after the cloud host pulled the data offline, but the hacker shared the document dump with TechCrunch to verify its contents. The hacker told TechCrunch in a message: “A vulnerable server in Guatemala related to the Mexican embassy was compromised and I dow...

Dietary supplements don't reduce mortality rates, Tufts researchers say

A new study at Tufts University discovered that a variety of supplements do not extend life and can even be dangerous.High doses of vitamin D and calcium were linked to higher rates of cancer and all-cause mortality. Benefits of the vitamins and nutrients were discovered in eating whole foods, not taken in pill or powder form. None Sunlight: the cause of much consternation for skincare advocates, yet a necessary component of biological life. Not only needed for, well, everything on this planet,...

Tufts engineers develop new tool to identify metabolic signatures linked to disease

Metabolic changes in cells can occur at the earliest stages of disease. In most cases, knowledge of those signals is limited, since we usually detect disease only after it has done significant damage.

The ups and downs of sit-stand desks

With researchers suggesting that 'sitting is the new smoking,' sit-stand desks (SSD) have become a common tool to quell sedentary behavior in an office environment. As this furniture becomes ubiquitous, conflicting opinions have arisen on its effectiveness. Researchers from the University of Pittsburgh and Tufts gathered data from 53 studies and published a scoping review article detailing current information on the benefits of SSDs.

Tufts Expelled a Student For Grade Hacking. She Claims Innocence

An anonymous reader quotes TechCrunch: As she sat in the airport with a one-way ticket in her hand, Tiffany Filler wondered how she would pick up the pieces of her life, with tens of thousands of dollars in student debt and nothing to show for it. A day earlier, she was expelled from Tufts University veterinary school. As a Canadian, her visa was no longer valid and she was told by the school to leave the U.S. 'as soon as possible.' That night, her plane departed the U.S. for her native Toronto,...

Calculating Facebook's value by figuring out how much you'd have to pay users to quit

A group of academics from economics, business, and policy schools at Kenyon, MSU, Susquehanna and Tufts performed a series of ingenious experiments to determine how much typical Facebook users value the service, by getting experimental subjects to participate in sealed-bid auctions for payments in exchange for quitting the service. They found that "the average Facebook user would require more than $1000 to deactivate their account for one year." Multiply this by Facebook's user-base, and yo...

Weekly Primer: How Trump Puts His Deputies To Work Pushing Politically Useful Lies

A New York Judge on Thursday told lawyers for President Donald Trump that allegations from New York’s attorney general — that Trump illegally used his foundation as a piggy bank — “are what they are,” and that “until you deny them, I accept them.” Judge Saliann Scarpulla acknowledged that Summer Zervos’ case would impact the foundation case inasmuch as it determines whether a sitting president can be sued. If the appeals court in Zervos’ case “says that Clinton versus Jones is still good law,...

HUD Official Caught Up In Email Fiasco With Interior Dept. Resigns

WASHINGTON (AP) — A political appointee who was caught up in a dispute between the departments of Interior and Housing and Urban Development has resigned. Assistant HUD secretary Suzanne Israel Tufts was tapped to lead an internal watchdog agency at Interior, but instead has left government. A HUD official announced her resignation Friday, a week after HUD Secretary Ben Carson said in an email to staff that she would take over as Interior’s acting inspector general.

Ben Carson Is Our Duke Of The Week

Last week, Housing and Urban Development secretary Ben Carson used his gifted hands to send out an email that threw multiple departments into turmoil, made it unclear whether a ten-year veteran of the Interior Department still had a job and garnered widespread accusations of an unethical coverup. He unleashed this bureaucratic turmoil either because a) he oafishly advertised a secret, sneaky plot b) he was tasked with sending out a trial balloon in the hopes that news outlets/watchdogs would ...

Weekly Primer: Docs Show Trump Ordered Gov’t To Keep FBI Building Near His Hotel

Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson may have inadvertently spilled the beans on the White House’s attempt to help Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke avoid accountability for rule-breaking. On Friday, Carson sent a “fond farewell” email to department staff announcing that Trump administration political appointee Suzanne Israel Tufts — who in her role at HUD replaced the whistleblower who called out Carson’s since-cancelled $31,000 furniture order — would now take over as the Depar...

Political Appointee Will Replace Interior Dept’s Top Watchdog … Ben Carson Says

The Department of the Interior (DOI) is apparently replacing its acting inspector general with a Trump administration political appointee. The more you dig into this story, the fishier it gets.
