Let's cut to the chase: Wired network connections will always be faster, more secure and more reliable than wireless.

If you want top speeds in your home, you'll want to save room in your remodeling budget for running gigabit Ethernet network cables (CAT5e or better yet CAT6) to every room in your home. Ethernet is the only connection standard where the real-world speeds are very close to, or in some cases match, the lofty theoretical speeds
CNET editor Dong Ngo explains Wi-Fi speeds and helps manage your networking expectations.

Data from the New Horizons mission revealed many previously unknown things about Pluto and hinted at others. One tantalizing tidbit was the prospect of an ammonia-rich ocean of water under the surface, a liquid sea beneath the frozen plains.

"Thanks to the incredible data returned by New Horizons, we were able to observe tectonic features on Pluto's surface, update our thermal evolution model with new data and infer that Pluto most likely has a subsurface ocean today," said Noah Hammond, a graduate student in Brown University's Department of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences who was lead author of a paper on the subject. The paper was published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.
Frozen though it may be, new research suggests an ocean may be sloshing away under Pluto's icy plains.

Scientists Caught 'Undead' Genes Coming Alive After Death
Turns out there might be "life" after death, after all.

One of my college Philosophy instructors recounted a story about when he was in grad school and they had a visit from an official from the U.S. Department of Education. 

He asked the class what they thought the function of public schools was.  After listening to dozens of guesses, he strode to the blackboard, picked up the chalk, and wrote one word on board in giant letters:  CUSTODIAL

Friday's Brexit referendum result -- in which 52 percent of UK voters chose to withdraw their country from the European Union -- is profoundly depressing to me.

The decision, which is the first time a country has ever opted to leave the EU, is a step in the wrong direction: toward tribalism and away from banding together for the common good
Commentary: The UK vote to withdraw from the European Union makes one citizen feel like the country where he was born is regressing into merely a little island.

The Top-Secret Cold War Plan to Keep Soviet Hands Off Middle Eastern Oil http://flip.it/3f8aY
Fearing a Russian invasion, the U.S. and Britain were prepared to ravage the region’s oil industry—and even considered going nuclear.

On Wednesday, Webpass, an internet service provider that uses point-to-point wireless to deliver high-speed broadband to apartment buildings and businesses, said it was being bought by Google Fiber for an undisclosed amount. Neither company has disclosed details of the transaction, but the deal is expected to close this summer after regulatory approval.

Webpass uses a combination of rooftop wireless networks connected to high-speed fiber connections to deliver broadband connections that it claims can be as fast as 1 gigabit per second. The company is already operating in five major markets, including the San Francisco Bay Area, San Diego, Miami, Chicago and Boston. Google Fiber, a subsidiary of Google parent company Alphabet, revealed earlier this year that it plans to deploy its 1Gbps broadband service in San Francisco, and it has already listed Chicago and San Diego as potential future cities. The acquisition of Webpass should help accelerate those plans and could help Fiber push into other cities.
The purchase of a company that delivers wireless high-speed broadband should help Google Fiber build its 1Gbps network quicker and for less money.

For many researchers, that’s a distressing thought. Patents aren’t necessarily bad for science, but in at least one instance, patents on two human genes held by Myriad Genetics, a molecular diagnostics company, impeded research and made testing for an important cause of illness impossible outside of the company’s own test. Both genes have been linked to breast cancer, and the patents meant that Myriad was the only company that could perform genetic test to determine if a woman is at a higher risk for the disease. So, a challenge filed by the Association for Molecular Pathology sought to change that. Its main argument? Human genes aren’t patentable.
Three weeks ago, scientists announced a controversial plan to create synthetic human genomes from scratch. The paper — which they published following reports about a private, off-the-record meeting...
