Climate change is currently triggering the sixth mass extinction
For more than 3.5 billion years, living organisms have thrived, multiplied and diversified to occupy every ecosystem on Earth. The flip side to this explosion of new species is that species extinctions have also always been part of the evolutionary life cycle. But these two processes are not always in step. When the loss of species rapidly outpaces the formation of new species, this balance can be tipped enough to elicit what is known as “mass extinction” events. A mass extinction is usually defined as a loss of about three-quarters of all species in existence across the entire Earth over… This story continues at The Next Web

Naomi Kritzer's "Catfishing on the CatNet": an AI caper about the true nature of online friendship
Back in 2016, Naomi Kritzer won the Hugo award for her brilliant, endearing story Cat Pictures Please, in which an AI with an insatiable craving for cat pictures explains its view on the world and the way that it makes humans' lives better; now Kritzer has adapted the story into her debut novel, the equally brilliant, superbly plotted YA thriller Catfishing on CatNet. Steph doesn't know much about her dad: only that he tried to murder their family by burning the house down when she was little, and that she and her mother -- a gifted infosec freelancer who can earn a living writing cryptographic tools from anywhere -- have been on the run from him ever since. Every few months, her mother discovers -- through some unknown means -- that Steph's dad is catching up with them and then they get into the van in the middle of the night and drive a minimum of 250 miles, then turn off the highway and drive another 25 miles, then settle in whatever town they've found themselves in. It's a lonely and chaotic life, with few friends and little stability, and the fact that Steph can get out of a particularly terrible new town by misbehaving at school in a way that triggers police interest (and thus another middle-of-the-night move) isn't much comfort. Steph has one source of stability: CatNet. Her mom will let her use her laptop (through an anonymizing VPN) to login to the social networking service, where the currency is cute pictures of cats (or other animals: Steph's fond of bats). Read the rest

Josh O'Connor is the first actor to play the next in line to the throne as an adult for the third season of the series. He told British GQ that Prince Charles has been living his life "in purgatory."

Fox News Fox News host Neil Cavuto admonished US President Donald Trump on Monday for personally attacking Fox colleague Chris Wallace. Trump called Wallace "nasty & obnoxious" after he questioned Congressman Steve Scalise's attempt to discredit impeachment inquiry witnesses on his Fox show on Sunday.  Cavuto defended Wallace's approach, saying: "We can't please all.

You can now book a flight on United's new 'Star Wars'-themed Boeing 737 plane — here's what it's like inside
United United has launched a special new "Star Wars"-themed Boeing 737-800 plane. The plane was launched to celebrate the upcoming release of "The Rise of Skywalker." Decked out in dueling Resistance and First Order livery, the plane is currently flying across the US, Canada, Central America, and the Caribbean. Passengers can book a flight by looking up the aircraft's tail number, N36272. United also has a whole webpage dedicated to the plane and its "Star Wars" promotions. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Luke Skywalker may have claimed the Millennium Falcon was a "piece of junk" when he first saw it (despite the fact it could, you know, make point-five past lightspeed) — but he probably wouldn't be saying that about United Airlines' shiny new Boeing 737-800. To celebrate the December release of "The Rise of Skywalker" in cinemas (billed as the last film in the nine-film Skywalker saga, of course), the airline has launched a special "Star Wars"-themed plane — and though it can't travel at lightspeed, it does look pretty spiffy, or at least nothing at all like the heavily-modified ship of a certain scruffy-looking nerf herder (sorry, Han Solo). The plane made its first flight earlier this month, from Houston to Orlando. Although there were plenty of evil First Order stormtroopers on hand, thankfully no-one was taken away for questioning by Kylo Ren. Here's what the plane is like inside.The Force — er, flight — is strong with the Boeing 737-800's galactic-themed livery, which revels in the power of the Dark Side on one side... United ...

Go read this interview with the Big Tech’s greatest European foe
Photo by Henrique Casinhas/SOPA Images/LightRocket via Getty Images The New York Times has just published a lengthy interview with Margrethe Vestager, the head of the EU’s antitrust division. Over the past five years, Vestager’s team has been behind some of the biggest fines doled out to US tech companies, thanks to the EU being one of the few authorities with the political clout to stand up to the likes of Apple (fined $14.5 billion for dodging taxes) and Google ($9 billion over a series of antitrust violations). Now, Vestager is embarking on a second five year term, where she’ll have even more power over the trading bloc’s digital policy. Unsurprisingly, Vestager’s relentless pursuit of Silicon Valley’s tech giants has ruffled some feathers, not least the President of the United States. “She hates the... Continue reading…
