Scientists have created an 'unsinkable' metal that could be used to build ships or floating cities. It's backed by Bill Gates.
J. Adam Fenster/University of Rochester Researchers have created a metal that can float even after it has been damaged or punctured.  That means it could keep ships from sinking. The material could also be used to build floating cities.  The project has received funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. It took just two-and-a-half hours for the Titanic to sink after it collided with an iceberg in 1912. Before the disaster, the ship was said to be "unsinkable" thanks to waterproof compartments below its deck. But the Titanic's engineers hadn't anticipated that a disaster would puncture six of those compartments.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: The US government sank a giant ship on purpose — and the footage is amazingSee Also:51 unique holiday gifts your mom actually wants to get this year — for every budgetDisturbing before-and-after images show what major US cities could look like in the year 2100Google Photos is easily Google's best service — here's why both iPhone and Android users should take advantage of itSEE ALSO: The UN is supporting a design for a new floating city that can withstand Category 5 hurricanes

Disney will tolerate password sharing on Disney+ — for now
Do you pay for your own Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, or HBO Now accounts? A simple truth of today is that many of us share access to streaming services. Maybe you split the cost with friends or family. Maybe you’ve managed to cling to an ex’s streaming account (and they’ve been nice enough not to change the password). Disney is aware that this is the reality of consumer behavior as it launches Disney+, and the company acknowledges that its new service is in for the same treatment. With generous usage guidelines (four concurrent streams, up to seven user profiles per account, etc.), Disney+ is inevitably going to be shared by people. The service is meant to be enjoyed by everyone in your household, but there will also likely be people who share their passwords with friends across the country. Disney seems to be okay with this scenario — to a point. “Password sharing is definitely something we think about,” Michael Paull, president of Disney Streaming Services, said during a Disney+ media preview last week. According to Paull, Disney is hopeful that customers will recognize just how much they’re getting for $6.99 per month (free 4K/HDR, unlimited downloads, etc.) and use the service within reason. “We believe that consumers will see that value, and they’re going to act accordingly,” he said. “They’re going to use those accounts for their family, for their household. That being said, we do recognize password sharing exists and will continue to exist.” But Disney has tools at its disposal if password sharing gets out of hand or becomes an obstacle that stunts Disney+’s growth. “We have created some technology that’s in the backend that we will use to understand behavior,” Paull said. “And when we see behavior that doesn’t make sense, we have mechanisms that we’ve put in place that will deal with it.” The company obviously knows what devices you’re using to stream the service. If that list of hardware grows unusually long for a single account, there’s one red flag Disney could take into account. Disney+ does not ask for location permissions when used on mobile devices, but it can’t be all that difficult for the company to approximate your general region through its data servers and other backend methods. But even if it does have measures in place to combat excessive password sharing, Disney doesn’t want to turn the dial to a point where things become annoyingly restrictive for customers, so for now, you’re probably okay to let your friends and family get a sample of Disney+.

Inauguration galas, an intimate dinner, and a White House party: Trump's 10 interactions with indicted Giuliani associates

All of Daniel Jones’ fumbles, ranked
Photo by Michael Reaves/Getty Images It’s a pretty long list! Daniel Jones can create magic with enough time in the pocket. The Giants’ quarterback is one of just four players since 2000 to sling at least four touchdown passes in multiple games as a rookie. He’s had three games with a passer rating of at least 112.0 and averaged more than six yards per carry when flushed from the pocket. He’s also fumbled the ball 13 times in nine games. He’s recovered just two of those. He’s averaged 1.63 fumbles per start, a 23-fumble pace that would both break the rookie record of 21 (currently held by Tony Banks and Warren Moon) and tie the NFL single-season mark (held by Daunte Culpepper and former Giant Kerry Collins). The 2019 No. 6 overall pick has buttressed his big efforts with a growing inability to protect the ball. He fumbled 10 times (TEN!) in a four-game stretch from Week 7 to Week 10. New York lost all four of those games, three by seven points or fewer. No team in the league has more fumbles than the Giants, either. Not all Jones’ fumbles are created equal. Some have no net effect on the outcome of the game. Others have completely hamstrung New York’s comeback efforts. So which has been the worst? Here’s the list, ranging from least damaging to most devastating. I’ve included timestamps in case you’d like to go back and relive all these glorious fumbles yourself. And, barring an extreme reversal of fortunes, I’ll have plenty of updates as 2019 wears on. The self-recoveries Jones found a way to fall on these balls for minimal losses. An incomplete pass is effectively the best-case scenario for a Jones fumble. This happens only seven percent of the time, because he’s typically staring into the heavens trying to figure out what went wrong while much larger men scramble for the ball around him. 13. Week 10 vs. the Jets, first-and-10 at the NYJ 45 7:08 - second quarter: Jones dropped an on-target snap, picked it up, and heaved it out of bounds for no gain. 12. Week 8 vs. the Lions, first-and-10 at the DET 43 8:44 - fourth quarter: Jones was sacked by Trey Flowers for -8 yards, fumbled, and then recovered the ball for a net loss of 12 yards. The team recoveries Giants offensive linemen and running backs, in an act of contrition for allowing Jones to get lambasted, jumped on these balls to retain possession. 11. Week 10 vs. the Jets, third-and-8 at the NYG 20 6:27 - first quarter: Jones was sacked by Jamal Adams for -8 yards and fumbled. Saquon Barkley recovered for a net loss of 12 yards. Barkley showed an especially impressive display of quick reflexes: But he loses points for having his missed block be the very reason for the fumble in the first place. 10. Week 7 vs. the Cardinals, first-and-10 at the NYG 23 1:38 - fourth quarter: Jones was sacked by Terrell Suggs for -9 yards and fumbled. Nate Solder recovered for a net loss of 14 yards. The meaningless, end of game fumbles These fumbles didn’t really matter since they happened late in games the Giants had no chance of winning. They’re concerning nonetheless. And, somehow, they both came against NFC East rival Dallas. 9. Week 9 vs. the Cowboys, first-and-10 at the DAL 24 0:06 - fourth quarter: Jones stripped was by Dorance Armstrong. Jourdan Lewis picked it up for a 63-yard fumble recovery touchdown. Jourdan Lewis putting the cherry on the sundae for the Cowboys with his first career touchdown coming on a scoop and score.— Jay Sarkar (@ByJaySarkar) November 5, 2019 This was the result of last-gasp efforts on the final play of a loss. Ball security doesn’t matter when you’re trying to lateral your way 80+ yards downfield in six seconds. 8. Week 1 vs. the Cowboys, third-and-4 at the DAL 44 1:25 - fourth quarter: Jones scrambled for 5 yards, was hit by Leighton Vander Esch and fumbled. Chidobe Awuzie recovered for no gain and the Cowboys kneeled out the clock soon after. And this was Jones’ fifth NFL snap, which is ... not ideal. Still, he was trailing 35-17 with less than 90 seconds to play at the time, so it’s not like it resulted in anything worse than a few embarrassing minutes of film review the following week. The Shaquil Barrett incident Barrett was a man possessed over the first quarter of the season, recording nine sacks in the first four games of the season. Four of those came against Jones, including two strip sacks. 7. Week 3 vs. the Buccaneers, second-and-9 at the NYG 40 10:36 - fourth quarter: Jones was sacked for -5 yards by Barrett and fumbled. Rakeem Nunez-Roches recovered. 6. Week 3 vs. the Buccaneers, first-and-10 at the NYG 45 2:22 - second quarter: Jones was sacked for -8 yards by Barrett and fumbled. Carl Nassib recovered. Barrett even had a third strip sack overturned after review, but that effort wasn’t enough to keep the Giants down. New York won that game 32-31, setting off a brief explosion of appreciation for general manager Dave Gettleman’s drafting prowess (it did not last). The meaningful turnovers These fumbles made an impact in close games, ceding vital momentum to opponents who’d eventually beat the Giants. 5. Week 9 vs. the Cowboys, third-and-6 at the NYG 39 7:42 - third quarter: Jones scrambled for 6 yards, was hit by Xavier Woods, and fumbled. Darian Thompson recovered. Jones made the right decision to escape traffic in the pocket and scramble toward a first down. Then, as he dove toward a fresh set of downs, a little pressure from safety Xavier Woods was enough to squirt the ball five yards downfield and right into the Cowboys’ arms. Jones throwing his arms out in vain as the ball trickles away from him is a pretty representative image of the Giants’ 2019 as a whole. 4. Week 7 vs. the Cardinals fourth-and-15 at the NYG 33 2:35 - fourth quarter: Jones was sacked by Patrick Peterson for -10 yards and fumbled. Haason Reddick recovered. Welcome back, @P2.— Arizona Cardinals ⋈ (@AZCardinals) October 20, 2019 This one effectively clinched the game for the Cardinals, but it’s tough to imagine Jones doing anything over than shattering into a thousand pieces in the face of Peterson’s completely untouched cornerback blitz. Arizona went on to win this game 27-21. 3. Week 7 vs. the Cardinals, second-and-8 at the ARI 37 7:33 - third quarter: Jones was sacked by Chandler Jones for -12 yards and fumbled. Chandler Jones recovered. 6.5 sacks4 forced fumbles3 fumble recoveriesIf you don't know his name yet, you should learn it pretty quickly.— Arizona Cardinals ⋈ (@AZCardinals) October 20, 2019 This was a teachable moment for Daniel Jones. He learned he’s much slower moving backward than Chandler Jones (no relation) is going forward. The idea the Cardinal defender was only 45 degrees to Jones’ right and still managed to get seven yards into the backfield without the quarterback seeing him is borderline inexplicable. Arizona turned this opportunity into a touchdown three plays later, and Jones (the edge rusher) bolstered his case for defensive player of the year honors. The second-worst fumble return touchdown In true 2019 Giants fashion, this preventable turnover is made possible by a complete blocking breakdown up front. No player in the league has lost more yardage via sacks than Jones, who’s been good for an average of -31 yards per start thanks to oncoming pressure. 2. Week 8 vs. the Lions, first-and-10 at the NYG 29 7:12 - first quarter: Jones threw a lateral pass under pressure. Devon Kennard recovered for a 13-yard fumble return touchdown. DK doing DK things! @DevonKennard— Detroit Lions (@Lions) October 27, 2019 Jones’ intentions were pure. A safety valve dump-off to Barkley would have defused the Lions’ blitz here, even if Detroit had a man closing quickly on the reigning offensive rookie of the year. The bad news is Jarrad Davis’ unabated run up the middle kept that pass from: a) being completed, orb) moving forward And it gave former Giant Devon Kennard an easy scoop-and-score. The worst: Jamal Adams dad-strengths away a touchdown The worst ... so far. The Giants have been ravaged by injuries to both their offensive linemen and the quick-hit targets who could bail Jones out of trouble when pressure comes. It’s not a stretch to suggest Jones’ fumbling issues may not get any better to finish his rookie campaign. 1. Week 10 vs. the Jets, third-and-1 at the NYG 34 14:13 - third quarter: Jones, uh ... Gimme that. Gimme six.@TheAdamsEra | #TakeFlight— New York Jets (@nyjets) November 10, 2019 Jamal Adams ... just took the ball. Grabbed it right out of Jones’ hands. He didn’t even have to try that hard, really. Wow. Adams returned the fumble 25 yards for a touchdown. The Jets went on to win this game by seven points. That is some extreme little brother stuff from the Giants.

4 strategies for making it work as a single-income couple
AleksandarNakic/Getty Images Living on a single income isn't impossible, but it can cause tension and resentment. Being open and honest is one of the best ways to cut down on this. If you're the sole provider, be sure to set aside "fun money" for yourself. Remind yourself of the choices and options you have available, and why you chose to become single income. Figure out what your long-term goals are, and be open and honest about any conflicting goals or ideas you may have. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. The idea of living on a single income as a couple hadn't crossed my mind. But when I became the sole provider, I realized we needed a solid money strategy. Before getting married, my husband and I made time to discuss our financial situation. We agreed that I'd support our family financially so he could focus his full attention on school. I love my job and building a career for myself, so I never thought being the sole provider would be difficult for me. Honestly, I thought it would be empowering. Within the first year of living on a single income, though, I slowly started to feel resentment and discontent. The financial tension was real, and I knew we had to address the problem now before it was too late.Talk about what's bugging you Cavan Images/Getty Images You must be open with your spouse — no matter how uncomfortable the conversation might be. If your partner doesn't know you're upset, how do they know there's an issue that needs to be resolved? I'd lived on my own and supported myself for years before I got married. But paying for one person is very different than paying for two people, and I hadn't really thought about the increase in expenses. When utilities, groceries, tuition, and entertainment costs started adding up, I felt overwhelmed and annoyed. I didn't want to spend my money on his tuition. After a few months of growing resentment, I finally told my husband how I was feeling. First, I realized that I had to shift my perspective. It's not just my money anymore, it's our money. Second, my husband validated my feelings and that felt nice. While I still pay for most expenses, just having that conversation helped change my perspective and attitude significantly. Include 'fun money' in your budget Africa Studio/Shutterstock Sometimes being an adult is less glamorous than romantic comedies might lead you to believe. For most couples, we don't wake up in a beautiful home with matching furniture and perfect decor. It's hard to justify spending money on artwork when utilities need to be paid and you need groceries. I noticed that more of my "fun money" budget was now going toward our household's increased bills. While staying out of debt is a top priority, I still occasionally spend money on myself. Whether it's a simple dinner for myself or a pedicure, sometimes a small splurge actually helps us feel in control of our money. Realize you have choices valentinrussanov / Getty Images Remembering you have choices is incredibly empowering. It helps to overcome stress at times and reduce some of the pressure of being the breadwinner. I had to remember that we chose to live on one income at this point in life. I chose to be the sole provider. If need be, my husband could get a part-time job or even take a semester off while we saved up more money. We had other options.
