Environmental groups vowing to fight Trump climate actionsCHICAGO (AP) — Environmental groups that have hired scores of new lawyers in recent months are prepared to go to court to fight a sweeping executive order from President Donald Trump that eliminates many restrictions on fossil fuel production and would roll back his predecessor's plans to curb global warming.

Mice infested human settlements 15,000 years ago Click Here to Open in a New Window

Mice infested human settlements 15,000 years agoMice began infesting human settlements some 15,000 years ago in the Middle East, said a study Monday that suggested the little rodents have been scurrying underfoot far longer than previously thought. As soon as hunter-gatherers began settling down rather than roving from place to place, house mice began to edge out their wild counterparts, said the study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), a peer-reviewed US journal. "The research provides the first evidence that, as early as 15,000 years ago, humans were living in one place long enough to impact local animal communities -- resulting in the dominant presence of house mice," said co-author Fiona Marshall, a professor of anthropology at Washington University in St. Louis.



Elon Musk launches Neuralink, a venture to merge the human brain with AI Click Here to Open in a New Window

Elon Musk launches Neuralink, a venture to merge the human brain with AISpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk is backing a brain-computer interface venture called Neuralink, according to The Wall Street Journal. The company, which is still in the earliest stages of existence and has no public presence whatsoever, is centered on creating devices that can be implanted in the human brain, with the eventual purpose of helping human beings merge with software and keep pace with advancements in artificial intelligence. More recently, Musk told a crowd in Dubai, “Over time I think we will probably see a closer merger of biological intelligence and digital intelligence.” He added that “it's mostly about the bandwidth, the speed of the connection between your brain and the digital version of yourself, particularly output." On Twitter, Musk has responded to inquiring fans about his progress on a so-called “neural lace,” which is sci-fi shorthand for a brain-computer interface humans could use to improve themselves.



How Cyclone Debbie got her name Click Here to Open in a New Window

How Cyclone Debbie got her nameThe huge storm that tore through parts of northeastern Australia this week was almost called Caleb instead of Debbie.

The process of chosing a moniker for storms comes from a formal system managed by the World Meteorological Organisation, with 10 global regions submitting names.

British WWI Stash Uncovered: Hundreds of Liquor BottlesHundreds of World War I-era liquor bottles have been uncovered at a buried British barracks in Israel. The excavators unearthed the foundations of an agricultural building from the Ottoman Empire — which ruled Israel from 1517 until the end of World War I — that had apparently been repurposed as housing for British soldiers during the war. At some point, the building had been burned down, but lots of artifacts from the British soldiers remained inside the foundation walls, including buttons and belt buckles from their uniforms and pieces of riding equipment.
