Hagfish are jawless, eel-like creatures that are known to spray huge quantities of goo when attacked.

Researchers attached mako shark teeth to a guillotine to replicate how a real shark would bite down on a hagfish. The hagfish’s loose skin allowed the shark tooth to cut through skin but never through the underlying muscle. That allows hagfish to squish away, escaping shark attacks relatively unharmed, according to a study published ... Read More

The FCC Just Killed Net Neutrality. Now What?

In Business, Education, Government, Legal, Security by Wired NewsLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , , , , , , , , ,

The Federal Communications Commission voted Thursday to dismantle its net neutrality regulations. But that won’t end the fight over rules that prohibit internet service providers from creating fast lanes for some content, while blocking or throttling others. Most immediately, the activity will move to the courts, where the advocacy group Free Press, and probably others, will challenge the FCC’s decision. The most likely argument: that the commission’s decision violates federal laws barring agencies from crafting “arbitrary and capricious” regulations. After all, the FCC’s net neutrality rules were just passed in 2015.... Read More

Generous tax cuts for corporations and the wealthiest Americans would be delivered in a sweeping overhaul of the tax laws, under a new agreement crafted by Republicans in Congress. Middle- and low-income families would receive smaller tax cuts, though President Donald Trump and Republican leaders have billed the package as a huge benefit for the middle class. The agreement reached Wednesday by House and Senate GOP leaders also calls for scrapping a major tax requirement of the “Obamacare” health law, a step toward the ultimate GOP goal of unraveling the law. The agreement combines key elements of separate tax bills recently passed by the House and Senate, striking compromises on some of them. The Republicans are pushing... Read More
