Are small cities the smartest?

(CNN)When you hear of urban transformations, you tend to think of high-rise mega-cities like Shanghai, Dubai or Hong Kong. Or if it’s technological advances, San Francisco and Silicon Valley might come to mind. Another time-saving design is the city layout itself. Public services, such as schools, hospitals and transportation are close to one another and easily accessible. “Five more minutes walking in the park, five more minutes with the kids before I have to leave for work, five more minutes earlier at home when I don’t have to spend on logistics,” Kerkko Vanhanen, the program director for Smart Kalasatama, tells CNN. “Your life is easier because of living in the most functional city in the world,” he adds. However, only …

23 Funny Aussie Slang Examples That Need Translation To English

Australia is the same. You haven’t truly experienced Australia until you’ve had a chat with a random bogan in a bluey, durry in hand while smashing down a tinny in his stubbies and thongs. If you’re lucky, he might let you help yourself to the contents of his esky, chuck a snag or two on the barbie and discuss whether he reckons the pies have got a chance of winning the flag this year. (Pro tip: the pies are a bunch of sooks and sheilas, catters all the way mate). #2 Durry: A cigarette, usually of the Winny Gold or PJ 30s variety. But never menthols. That shit’ll give you cancer.

Steele says he used unverified information to support details about web company in dossier

(CNN)A newly released snippet of a deposition with the ex-British spy behind the Trump-Russia dossier describes some of the steps he took to verify information he collected for it in 2016, including pulling from a user-generated citizen journalism initiative by CNN, iReport, which no longer operates. Steele testified that he used a 2009 article from the crowdsourced news site CNN iReport, for instance, to check information he learned about Webzilla, one of the three related entities that had sued BuzzFeed for defamation. BuzzFeed published the dossier in full — explaining they hadn’t verified it — on January 10, 2017, after CNN reported that President Barack Obama and President-elect Donald Trump had been briefed about it. When asked if he had …

Quantum Physics Could Protect the Grid From HackersMaybe

Cybersecurity experts have sounded the alarm for years: Hackers are ogling the US power grid. The threat isn’t merely hypothetical—a group affiliated with the Russian government gained remote access to energy companies’ computers, the Department of Homeland Security published last March. In some cases, the hackers could even directly send commands to mess with hardware, which meant they could have cut off the power entirely to customers’ homes. To shut these hackers out, utility companies need better security. One group of physicists think they have a patch: quantum-encrypted power stations. They tested the idea this February, hauling several SUVs’ worth of lasers, electronics, and extremely sensitive detectors from Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, down to Chattanooga. After …

Unsealed documents shed new light on efforts to verify Trump-Russia dossier

(CNN)Documents unsealed this week lend credence to a theory about Russian election meddling that was first put forward in the Trump-Russia dossier, however they do not corroborate the more explosive claims that the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin in the 2016 campaign. The effort by BuzzFeed to prove an aspect of the dossier to defend itself in court sheds new light on the accuracy of Steele’s finds on the nature of Russia’s attempts to meddle in the 2016 election. The report was funded by Democrats seeking to uncover information about then-Republican candidate Donald Trump. Details of the report The FTI report concluded that one of the hyperlinks the Russians designed to trick Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta into …

What Is Labiaplasty And Why Are Women Doing It? Betches

I’ve got a fine relationship with my vagina. To be honest, before this article I had not given it much thought. It’s there, it does what it needs to do, and I carry on with my life. But for some women, how their vulva looks and feels causes them major stress. That’s where labiaplasty comes in. For some people, when they hear about a labiaplasty, they think (logically) “okay, yeah, plastic surgery for your labia.” For others, when they hear it, their first reaction is “WTF.” But whether you’ve heard about a labiaplasty before or not, I’m sure you have some questions and probably some misconceptions that I plan to debunk. But let’s get one thing straight: labiaplasty is NOT …

Snapchat always proved critics wrong. Then Evan Spiegel pushed for a redesign

Most CEOs would probably prefer not to overhaul their core businesses less than a year after an initial public offering. It’s a pivotal period when executives look to play up their company’s stability and growth to a world of potential new investors on Wall Street. Arlan Hamilton: She invests in tech founders others ignore. And it’s working Mary Barra: Her impatience could save GM. ‘Time is not our friend’ Read all 14 Risk Takers profiles The plan: separate content from friends and publishers — and celebrity users — while attracting new users by making the app easier to use. Spiegel said at the time that the move could be “disruptive” to Snap’s business. That proved to be an understatement. A …

How to Watch the Oscars 2019

If you remember anything about the 1989 Oscars, it's likely because of a truly insane opening number that featured Snow White and Rob Lowe singing a parody version of "Proud Mary." (Also, if you remember anything about the 1989 Oscars, congratulations: You're officially too old to ever get a handle on TikTok.) The reason it happened? The ceremony went without a host that year—a rarity that's about to repeat itself. Yes, thanks in large part to Kevin Hart's truly staggering inability to apologize for views he claims to have left in the past, Sunday's 91st Annual Academy Awards are host-less for the first time in 30 years. That might actually work in favor of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts …
