Oy, again? C'mon Ohio... "Darwin's Theory of Evolution is a theory in crisis in light of the tremendous advances we've made in molecular biology, biochemistry and genetics over the past fifty years."
Teaching document is a mix of standard material and creationist claims.

Some politicians (probably): "You know what we need right now? Space. Helicopters. For. Mars."
House budget provides funding for Mars helicopters, super fast propulsion, and more.

Any helicopter that flies well at 80,000 feet and brings its own oxygen should work well on Mars.

HP's Elite x2—"a good workhorse convertible that has ripped a lot of important pages from the Surface’s playbook"
Surface Pro 4 is better in many ways, but you'll want the x2 when things break.

Great review. I think I'll start recommending these to my clients, since I'm the one they always ask to repair laptops! A win for everyone involved; it's "almost as good" as the surface with less of the "throw it in the trash when the warranty runs out" mentality.

With closing arguments behind us, now we all wait on the jury (and remember the stakes). "That is really going to create a radical shift in how software is developed worldwide. If it requires permission each time APIs are used and code calls other code, then you've upended the economics of software."
Oracle bought Java and now wants a staggering $9 billion from Google.

To me, this is like holding the patent on Legos and then the design rights to anything that you build with them.

With Overwatch, "Blizzard seems poised to tap into yet another audience—curious but too intimidated by the sheer weight of established brands elsewhere in a popular genre."

(For more on the game, our editors will be taking to YouTube for some live gameplay at 7:30p today: http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2016/05/watch-live-ars-aims-its-brightly-colored-guns-at-overwatchs-launch-day/)
The game's intense character variety anchors a smooth and directed experience.

"Take your tests in game, drive a race car in real life."
Ability to earn a real-world racing license from in-game driving, not much else.

"Like Garmin took all the features of the Surge and made them better and more efficient."
$250 tracker sits right in the middle of Garmin's convoluted lineup.

Common cold is one example of the importance of letting the body work out what's wrong and fight. We take over the counter drugs and vitamins which not so long ago weren't available either, and still aren't in many countries, so once upon a time that could be considered as not allowing the body to fight

As someone that works multiple roles in healthcare though, there's been a huge upswing of dangerous and in the end deadly diseases that shouldn't happen with effective meds and vaccines in moderation

"They copied 11,500 lines of code," Bicks said. "It's undisputed. They took the code, they copied it, and put it right into Android."
"It takes strength and courage to stand up to Google. That's what Oracle has done."

When you stop innovating all you can do is to make money by screwing others up
