The abortion rate is at an all-time low — and better birth control is largely to thank - Vox

Today, we’re excited to announce that we’ve entered into an agreement to acquire Fabric to join Google to continue the great work that Twitter put into the platform. Our missions align closely: help developers build better apps and grow their business. The expected integration of Fabric is part of our larger, long-term effort of delivering a comprehensive suite of features for iOS, Android and mobile Web app development.

This is a great moment for the industry and a unique opportunity to combine the best of Firebase with the best of Fabric. We're committed to making mobile app development seamless, so that developers can focus more of their time on building creative experiences.

GOP makes plans to invalidate Endangered Species Act
With the ascension of President-elect Donald Trump, Republicans see an opportunity to roll back the Endangered Species Act, which has become one of the government's most powerful conservation tools. The GOP contends the act has been used by wildlife advocates to block economic development and to hinder drilling, logging and other activities.
