  • Hollande urges French to reject Le Pen in presidential runoff vote

    Hollande urges French to reject Le Pen in presidential runoff voteBy Bate Felix and John Irish PARIS (Reuters) - France's outgoing president, Francois Hollande, on Monday urged people to back centrist Emmanuel Macron in a vote to choose his successor next month and reject far-right leader Marine Le Pen, whose place in the runoff represented a "risk" for France. Macron and Le Pen, leader of the National Front, go head-to-head on May 7 after taking the top two places in Sunday's first round. Opinion polls indicate that the business-friendly Macron, who has never held elected office, will take at least 61 percent of the vote against Le Pen after two defeated rivals pledged to back him to thwart her eurosceptic, anti-immigrant platform.

  • Japanese demand for nuclear shelters, purifiers surges as North Korea tension mounts

    Japanese demand for nuclear shelters, purifiers surges as North Korea tension mountsBy Kiyoshi Takenaka TOKYO (Reuters) - Sales of nuclear shelters and radiation-blocking air purifiers have surged in Japan in recent weeks as North Korea has pressed ahead with missile tests in defiance of U.N. sanctions. A small company that specializes in building nuclear shelters, generally under people's houses, has received eight orders in April alone compared with six orders during a typical year. The company, Oribe Seiki Seisakusho, based in Kobe, western Japan, also has sold out of 50 Swiss-made air purifiers, which are said to keep out radiation and poisonous gas, and is trying to get more, said Nobuko Oribe, the company's director.




  • 2017 Honda Civic Type R sets Nürburgring lap record

The Civic Type R has always been renowned for outstanding performance, but this model, which set the new record and was part of the all-new tenth-generation Civic's development program, really has set a new benchmark for the Type R and for its rivals. This development car set a time of 7 minutes, 43.8 seconds, which is almost seven seconds faster than the previous generation Civic Type R managed.

  • Revised Mazda2 gets significant updates

    Revised Mazda2 gets significant updatesDespite having been in production now for more than two decades, it's probably fair to say the Mazda2 isn't the best-known or best-loved model in Mazda's range, but the manufacturer is giving it some significant updates to try to challenge that perception. The current model is part of the car's fourth-generation, and it's sold around the globe under a number of different names and by several different manufacturers.

  • Samsung to update software over 'red screen' smartphone

    Samsung to update software over 'red screen' smartphoneElectronics giant Samsung will this week offer an unusually early software update for its newly-released Galaxy S8 phone, it said Monday after some consumers complained of red-tinted screens. The launch of the device is a key step for the South Korean tech firm as it seeks to move on from last year's humiliating withdrawal of the Galaxy Note 7 over exploding batteries, which hammered the firm's once-stellar reputation. Online images of their phones went viral on social media but Samsung denied a hardware flaw and maintained that users could manually adjust the colour range according to their preferences.

  • 12-year-old stopped by police while trying to drive across Australia

    12-year-old stopped by police while trying to drive across AustraliaOf all places, driving across Australia isn't something you'd do on a whim. Yet it was the plan for one kid, who was stopped by police after driving 1,200 kilometres (745 miles) from the country's east coast.  SEE ALSO: Steve Irwin's son was on Jimmy Fallon again and this time he brought baby bears "Checks revealed the driver to be a 12-year-old boy travelling from Kendall, NSW, on his way to Perth," New South Wales Police said in a statement, via ABC News. But it seemingly wasn't bad driving that caught the eye of authorities. The boy was only pulled over after they noticed the car's bumper was dragging along the road on the Barrier Highway, located in the far-west of the state of New South Wales. He was arrested and taken to Broken Hill Police Station, where inquiries are continuing. The distance from Kendall to Perth is a mammoth 4,095 kilometres (2,558 miles), which would take 43 hours of driving to complete. Even a flight from one side of the country to the other would take around five hours. Part of the trip would've included crossing the Nullarbor Plain, a 1,256 kilometre (781 mile) stretch of highway which is Australia's longest and flattest road. The country's tourism site recommends "carrying extra petrol and plenty of water and food" due to its remoteness.  Again, it's not a trip you can do randomly. WATCH: An all-electric flying car just made its first flight and it's as cool as it sounds

White House budget chief Mick Mulvaney said the administration is prepared to make concessions to Democrats on health care reform in order to get the wall money.

  • Apple is getting serious about self-driving cars

    Apple is getting serious about self-driving cars

    Though Apple's plans to develop and manufacture a branded car may currently be on hold, the company's plans to research and develop self-driving car technologies appears to be moving forward. Just about a week after Apple obtained a permit to test autonomous vehicles in the state of California, Business Insider filed a public-records request and managed to gain access to materials accompanying Apple's permit application. The filed documents provide us with some interesting new information regarding Apple's training program for its nascent self-driving car initiative.

    According to training materials which correspond to software Apple calls the "Apple Automated System", it appears that Apple engineers have been busy developing a suite of software and hardware sensors designed to assist a car drive with the flow of traffic while avoiding other vehicles and pedestrians.

    According to the training packet, the car that Apple's staffers are using to test the self-driving technology is outfitted with consumer video game gear such as a Logitech steering wheel and pedals to actuate drive by wire.

    Whereas Apple's earlier car efforts seemed to entail hiring hundreds of employees with vast automotive experience across all aspects of the car development and manufacturing process, it stands to reason that Apple, for the time being, has decided to primarily focus its attention on self-driving technologies.

    With cars boasting Apple's mysterious autonomous software having been approved for use on the road, California law holds that the drivers/passengers overseeing the testing must be sufficiently trained and ready to assume control of the wheel at any moment.

    Apple applied for a permit for six drivers to drive three Lexus RX450h SUVs. Apple's drivers, named in the application, are mostly Ph.D.s specializing in machine learning, some of whom previously worked for companies like Bosch and Tesla, according to their LinkedIn profiles.

    Apple said its vehicles would be able to capture and store "relevant data before a collision occurs" in its application.

    That Apple is exploring self-driving technologies may not be all that surprising, but the more interesting question is if it really matters. As it stands now, we can only presume that Apple's progress with its own technology isn't anywhere close to matching what established automakers and a myriad of start-up companies have already developed. Going forward, it will be interesting to see if Apple's foray into the self-driving world will ever yield a marketable product or if it will simply become an Apple research initiative that never sees the light of day.

    Apple's full permit application can be viewed over here via AppleInsider.




  • Venezuela opposition march to honor those killed in violence

    Venezuela opposition march to honor those killed in violenceBy Alexandra Ulmer CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela's opposition marched in silence on Saturday to honor a dozen people killed in three weeks of protests demanding that the government of President Nicolas Maduro hold delayed elections and address a growing economic crisis. "We want free elections, we want to get rid of this corrupt government," said Iomira Barrios, 60, an environmental consultant who says she can no longer find work. "Right now people are willing to fight, because they have declared a dictatorship and we cannot allow it." Anger over the OPEC nation's triple-digit inflation and Soviet-style product shortages boiled over after the Supreme Court last month briefly assumed the powers of Congress, triggering accusations that Maduro was building a dictatorship.

  • NASA’s Cassini spacecraft just caught a glimpse of Earth, all the way from Saturn

    NASA’s Cassini spacecraft just caught a glimpse of Earth, all the way from SaturnNASA and its spectacular space hardware often spend so much time checking out our planetary neighbors that we forget Earth offers some pretty cool photo ops as well. A brand new photo released by NASA is a great reminder of that, and it was shot all the way from Saturn, courtesy of the always reliable Cassini spacecraft just before it's scheduled to begin the most harrowing part of its entire years-long mission. The photo, which shows the Earth as a tiny bright dot in a black sea of space, was shot at a distance of 870 million miles. If you zoom in on the original photo you can even make out the Moon as a smaller dot to the left of our planet. The most spectacular part of the image is the fact that it was shot from between Saturn's rings, with the bold A ring seen above the Earth and bright F ring creeping into the original photo at the bottom. It's a great shot, but it's also somewhat bittersweet when you consider Cassini's immediate future. The craft is scheduled to begin its "Grand Finale" dives shortly, in which it will fly recklessly through Saturn's rings a total of 22 times until, on its final approach, it flies directly into the planet itself. That final act will destroy the spacecraft, which has already achieved far more than scientists could have ever hoped when it was launched way back in 1997. That last fateful dive is slated for September 15th, 2017.
