The variety of indicators shows us how our climate is changing, not just in temperature but from the depths of the oceans to the outer atmosphere.
In 2014, the most essential indicators of Earth's changing climate continued to reflect trends of a warming planet, with several markers such as rising land and ocean temperature, sea levels and greenhouse gases -- setting new records. These key findings and others can be found in the State of the Climate in 2014 report released online by the American Meteorological Society (AMS).

Scientists have for the first time networked the brains of monkeys and rats ( a brainet of four interconnected brains is illustrated) to make a living computer that can solve problems.
The arrows represent the flow of information through the Brainet from stimulation to the brain to a reward of water.
In two separate studies, neuroscientists at Duke University in North Carolina networked the brains of monkeys and rats to make a living computer that can solve problems to complete tasks.

Just wait till we also use genetic modification to increase the sizes of our brains and then connect to each other.

Open House is filled with sensor-laden products, it detects your presence almost immediately and serves up gee-whiz interactions without prompting.
As you pass gadgets, conversation bubbles pop up on the wall, lending the devices a friendly, cartoonist character.

They still teach woodblock printing in art school, so it is not soon to be forgotten.
And yes, the prints are officially licensed by Lucasfilm.

A Californian helicopter firm flew over the site of Apple's Campus 2 last month and shot aerial views of the building and its 175-acre construction site as it prepares to open next year.
As the camera pans over the site, it reveals the site's mile-wide circumference and how the structure will fit in with the surrounding Cupertino neighbourhood as well as a number of buildings starting to take shape.

We could train a convolutional neural network on problematic images.
An algorithm has been designed to tell if somebody in a color photo is naked. Isitnude.com launched earlier this month; its demo page invites you to try it out to test its power in nudity detection. You can choose from a selection of images at the bottom of the page, including pics of Vladimir Putin ...

The vehicles will help drivers behind semi-trailer trucks on one-lane highways or roads. Images shot from a camera in the front of the truck will broadcast to a video wall on the back of the vehicle.
