The United States Postal Service is not exactly bouncing back from oblivion these days, but it’s worth noting that there’s been a slight bump in one area.

For the savvy readers out there, you might already know there is one company that is helping them rebound. Hint: It’s named after an area in South America. ... Read More

Tech News Keywords: , , ,

Puberty is a heckuva drug. But no matter how hard it is to be a normal teenager, no one has it tougher than the teens in Japanese role-playing games. Blue Reflection is the latest JRPG from publisher Koei Tecmo and its subsidiary, Gust Studios, and it features a lot of melodramatic youths and girls with secret magic powers. It’ll be available in North America on September 26 for PC and PlayStation 4. Although Blue Reflection stars a lot of magical girls wielding swords and flinging spells, when I played the demo, it lacked the actual magic you get when a story really clicks. It relies too much on tropes, including that of magical girls — girls who fight evil with sparkles and magic, often while wearing frilly get-ups — which... Read More

None of this is to say that automation and AI aren’t having an important impact on the economy. But that impact is far more nuanced and limited than the doomsday forecasts suggest. A rigorous study of the impact of robots in manufacturing, agriculture, and utilities across 17 countries, for instance, found that robots did reduce the hours of lower-skilled workers—but they didn’t decrease the total hours worked by humans, and they actually boosted wages. In other words, automation may affect the kind of work humans do, but at the moment, it’s hard to see that it’s leading to a world without work.

A real-estate deal would be outside the scope of legitimate inquiry.” If he senses “drift” in Mueller’s investigation, he said, he will warn the special counsel’s office that it is exceeding its mandate. The issue will first be raised “informally,” he noted. But if Mueller and his team persist, Sekulow said, he might lodge a ... Read More

Five years ago, George Heimpel, an entomologist at the University of Minnesota, travelled to Trinidad in search of insect larvae. He was after several kinds in particular—Philornis downsi, a fly whose parasitic young feed on the hatchlings of tropical birds, and various minuscule wasp species whose own offspring feed on those of the fly. Heimpel hoped that the wasps might solve a problem on the Galápagos Islands, where Philornis has taken a severe toll on native fowl. Those hurt most by the fly, which was likely brought to the archipelago by people, are the Galápagos finches, the songbirds that provided Charles Darwin with some of the earliest evidence of evolution. Currently, eleven of the fourteen finch species ar... Read More

In the past century, the glaciers and ice fields of the European Alps have lost half their volume to global warming, and their continued retreat, like that of glaciers everywhere in the world, is accelerating. By 2100, many scientists predict, they will have all but disappeared. The meltdown has already disrupted the region’s sensitive mountain ecosystems and tourist resorts—some local communities have taken to laying protective white blankets over the snow and ice—but it has also opened up new avenues of scientific inquiry. As the glaciers recede, they are releasing some of the human artifacts that they have absorbed through the ages, including humans themselves. ... Read More

The agreement with the Federal Trade Commission would resolve complaints stemming from a 2014 incident in which a hacker gained access to the names and driver's license numbers of more than 100,000 Uber drivers. The company won't have to pay a fine. Or at least it won't so long as audits show that the company is making good on its promises to ensure its customers' and drivers' privacy and security.
