The first full trailer for 'Venom' is here

1 hour 35 min ago

Sony has released the first trailer for Venom, starring Tom Hardy as an antihero who gets tangled up with a mysterious and powerful symbiote. 

If the character sounds kind of familiar, you may recall that he's frequently associated with Spider-Man – Topher Grace played a version of him in 2007's Spider-Man 3

But this Venom exists separately from Spider-Man. The current Spidey exists in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with all the Avengers, while Venom is off doing his own thing in a different continuity.

And it's probably just as well. Between all the corporate intrigue and action and whatever else is going on in this trailer, Venom looks like he's got plenty on his plate already. Read more...

Facebook doubles the amount of terrorism content scrubbed from its platform

3 hours 7 min ago

Facebook actually stopped harmful content from spreading. 

The company said in a press release Monday that it removed or added a content warning to 1.9 million pieces of "ISIS and al-Qaeda" content in January through March — twice the amount it removed in the previous three months. 

SEE ALSO: A UK journalist is suing Facebook for defamation over fake ads

Supposedly, 99 percent of that content was removed because Facebook's technology and employees found it, not because users reported it. 

"In most cases, we found this material due to advances in our technology, but this also includes detection by our internal reviewers," wrote Monika Bickert, Facebook's vice president of global policy management, and Brian Fishman, its global head of counterterrorism policy.  Read more...

Scientists confirm Uranus smells like farts

Mon, 04/23/2018 - 22:32

It's official: Uranus smells like farts. 

This is a real conclusion that real scientists came to. The planet, often the butt of jokes, has an atmosphere that smells like rotting eggs because its clouds are composed of hydrogen sulfide. 

SEE ALSO: NASA's TESS planet-finder satellite just rode a Falcon 9 to space

A study published on Monday in Nature Astronomy suggests the presence of the stinky gas in Uranus' clouds. Scientists have previously inferred that the planet's atmosphere contained ammonia and hydrogen sulfide based on the lack of certain light wavelength, but it wasn't directly observed. Using a 26-feet-long telescope at the Gemini Observatory in Hawaii, a team led by Oxford University's Patrick Irwin studied sunlight refracted off Uranus' clouds. They spotted hydrogen sulfide.  Read more...

Target plans to build hundreds of EV chargers at stores across 20 states

Mon, 04/23/2018 - 21:45

Target wants to make your next shopping trip worth the drive, so it's adding hundreds of charging stations for electric vehicles to its parking lots across the country.

SEE ALSO: There's a glaring weakness in electric vehicles. (It's range anxiety.)

The big-box retailer announced Monday an expanded EV charging program, offering Tesla, ChargePoint, and Electrify America charging stations for battery-powered cars that may need some extra juice while on the road. 

Target currently offers the chargers in only 18 locations across five states (California, Hawaii, Minnesota, North Carolina, and Texas), but over the next two years, 100 stores in 20 states will have charging stations available. Read more...

Scientific study on Trump voters confirms what people of color have been saying all along

Mon, 04/23/2018 - 21:41

The Trump voter is often portrayed in media and pop culture as a working-class white person, down on their luck and desperate for change. These voters were — and remain — willing to look past Trump's erratic and unorthodox behavior and "politically incorrect" commentary if his presidency brings better jobs. These voters, the narrative goes, are in pursuit of a noble life, even if the man they chose to be commander-in-chief is neither generous or honorable. 

But a new study, published Monday in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, argues that a segment of these voters was motivated partly by a far less righteous cause: to protect their own dominant status in American culture and politics.  Read more...

Happy 13th birthday to the very first YouTube video

Mon, 04/23/2018 - 21:36

The first video uploaded to YouTube is finally a teen.

Thirteen years ago on Monday — on April 23, 2005 — YouTube co-founder Jawed Karim uploaded this 18 second clip to the site just a few months after the domain was secured, and nothing's been the same since.

By the YouTube standards of today, it's a pretty dull video, but it does embody much of internet culture with a subtle dick joke.

Net neutrality is all but dead. Here's what happens now.

Mon, 04/23/2018 - 21:18

Everyone take a moment of silence please — the free and open internet is all but dead.

In December 2017 the FCC, under chairman Ajit Pai, voted to repeal net neutrality, signaling the end of the open internet as we know it.

The decision was controversial at the time, with everyone from Alyssa Milano to Reddit calling out the FCC in the lead-up to the vote, but the the vote was just the first step toward repeal. To enact the change, the FCC would have to officially list the ruling and provide a timeline for it.

That listing came in February and, now we're even closer to net neutrality's funeral. The listing notes the repeal's effective date as April 23, but there's a big asterisk next to it. The effective date isn't actually the effective date for the most impactful parts of the repeal. We have to wait for an administrative step — a review by the Office of Management and Budget — and then there will be another published notice.  Read more...

Get a glimpse of crabs migrating in these new Google Street View images

Mon, 04/23/2018 - 20:57

Making your way to Australia's Christmas Island to witness its annual red crab migration isn't the easiest of trips, but now there's an easier way to see it happen: Just catch a glimpse on Google's Street View.

The pictures were collected by Alasdair Grigg from Parks, Australia, using Google's Street View Trekker 360 late last year. (Red crab migration generally starts at the beginning of October or November.) The images reveal some of the approximately 40 to 50 million crabs that make their way from the forest to the coast.

Why you love reading other people's money diaries

Mon, 04/23/2018 - 20:20

Sometime in the past few months, a lawyer in Chicago spent $8.21 on tacos from Chipotle after breaking up with her boyfriend. Around the same time, a woman in Minneapolis who works in human resources paid $7.48 for a shower curtain. And at some point, a digital strategist in Boston spent $58 on "ground chicken, kale, broccoli rabe, parsnips, chickpeas, steak tips, salsa, bell peppers, and a bag of honey-roasted chickpeas I keep in my desk to snack on." 

This information is all incredibly boring. So why did I devour it like it was a TMZ column?

SEE ALSO: Why is SpongeBob so damn meme-able?

Though the era of the personal essay has ended, the age of the "budget diary" is alive and well. These days, the foremost example is Refinery29's Money Diaries section (though there are also a fair number of diaries on Man Repeller), in which anonymous diarists reveal their salaries and monthly bills, then track each of their discretionary expenses for a week. Some of the diaries (from the people who make high salaries, specifically) feel fun and aspirational, even fantastical. If the diary week falls during some kind of lavish vacation, even better!  Read more...

The Rock welcomes a baby girl and delivers heartfelt advice for new fathers

Mon, 04/23/2018 - 19:44

An American equivalent to a royal baby was born today. 

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and his partner Lauren Hashian welcomed a baby girl into the world on Monday, and made the announcement via a very on brand (aka shirtless), long-winded Instagram post with a photo of Johnson holding his daughter.

SEE ALSO: Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson nailed the rap from 'Moana' on British TV

The newest family member, Tiana Gia Johnson, is The Rock's third daughter, and second with Hashian. 

Skin to skin. Our mana. Blessed and proud to bring another strong girl into this world. Tiana Gia Johnson came into this world like a force of nature and Mama @laurenhashianofficial labored and delivered like a true rockstar. I was raised and surrounded by strong, loving women all my life, but after participating in baby Tia’s delivery, it’s hard to express the new level of love, respect and admiration I have for @laurenhashianofficial and all mamas and women out there. Word to the wise gentlemen, it’s critical to be by your lady’s head when she’s delivering, being as supportive as you can.. holding hands, holding legs, whatever you can do. But, if you really want to understand the single most powerful and primal moment life will ever offer - watch your child being born. Its a life changer and the respect and admiration you have for a woman, will forever be boundless. And to my third and youngest daughter, Tiana Gia - like I did when your two older sisters Simone Alexandra and Jasmine Lia were born, you have my word, I’ll love, protect, guide and make ya laugh for the rest of my life. Your crazy dad has many responsibilities and wears many hats in this big ol’ world, but being your dad will always be the one I’m most proud to wear. Oh and one more thing.. you’re gonna love rollin’ in daddy’s pick up truck. #TianaGiaJohnson🌺 #3rdDaughter #BlessesAndGratefulMan #ImInTROUBLE Read more...

YouTuber launches garlic bread into space just to eat it when it lands back on Earth

Mon, 04/23/2018 - 19:39

We've seen a man, a rocket, and so many other things go into space, so why not send some garlic bread as well?

YouTuber Tom Scott and a group of experts tied a loaf of garlic bread onto a weather balloon in attempt to launch it into space. Aside from sending it off, Scott wanted to test how the bread would taste once it's been on the edge of the atmosphere for over two hours. 

But, the reason for garlic bread specifically? Scott just said, "Because it's delicious." Who could disagree with that?

The goal was to get the garlic bread at least to the edge of space (which is a third of 100 kilometers up [328,084 feet]) with the help of some fisheye lens, radio GPS, and a server box. They were able to track the landing of the bread and successfully capture it to test their theory. Read more...

California faces steep increase in 'precipitation whiplash,' threatening infrastructure

Mon, 04/23/2018 - 19:11

From late 1861 through early 1862, a megaflood of historic proportions put large parts of the state of California underwater. The state's Central Valley, which is now one of the most productive agricultural ares in the country, became a vast inland lake. The city of Sacramento, which sits at the intersection of the American and Sacramento rivers, flooded, and remained under water for months. 

According to one account, one-quarter of the state's 800,000 cattle drowned in the flooding, and one-third of the state's property was destroyed.

The new, most popular 'Westworld' theory for Season 2 is a doozy

Mon, 04/23/2018 - 19:10

Westworld is back and, by the looks of it, the Season 2 premiere is up to some old tricks again. 

Last season's big twist centered around the show taking place over multiple timelines experienced by Dolores, culminating in the reveal that The Man in Black is actually William and that Dolores killed Arnold before the park opened decades ago. 

It would appear that now, in Season 2, Bernard is at the center of a new multiple timeline puzzle.

Or at least that's what they want you to think. 

SEE ALSO: These celebs brought their star power to March for Our Lives

Because Westworld might be up to its old tricks again, but so is Reddit. These are the same crafty fans who figured out that there were multiple timelines happening in Season 1 by, like, episode 2. And they're not buying that Bernard's confusing plot in the premiere only comes down to different  timelines. Oh no. Now, we're probably dealing with multiple clone versions of the Bernard host experiencing multiple timelines. Read more...
