No number is any more, or any less, likely to appear in a lottery draw than any other number. So it is just as likely that tonight’s UK lottery numbers will be 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 as any other combination, say 3, 26, 35, 41, 47, 49.
It wasn’t until recently that I made a shocking discovery about Bob the Builder. Specifically, his relationship with Wendy.
A century ago, Americans would not recognise our modern hunger for chicken. The year-long market for tender but relatively bland chicken meat is a newish phenomenon, and without it the idea of chicken cutlets, $5 rotisseries, or the McNugget would be a fantasy.
We love to tell dogs what to do, but we rarely consider whether they understand what we’re saying. Pet owners assume their dogs comprehend commands like sit, stay, or heel — even play dead and make me Instagram famous, for that matter — but without the ability to read their minds, no one can know for sure. An ingenious new study in Frontiers in Neuroscience, however, finds a way to determine which of our commands they actually understand.
College student Liam Porr used the language-generating AI tool GPT-3 to produce a fake blog post that recently landed in the No. 1 spot on Hacker News, MIT Technology Review reported. Porr was trying to demonstrate that the content produced by GPT-3 could fool people into believing it was written by a human. And, he told MIT Technology Review, “it was super easy, actually, which was the scary part.”
In May, Nicholas (not his real name), 27, received an email from the food and beverage (F&B) company where he was employed as a quality control officer. It was during the circuit breaker measures which saw many businesses stop operations, and he and his colleagues had gone on no-pay leave.
SAMANTHA SCHAEVITZ WAS in the home stretch of a fellowship at Huridocs, a human rights nonprofit, when she got the call. Schaevitz works on site reliability engineering at Google; they’re the ones who keep steady the ship when things get choppy. And by February of this year, as large portions of Asia shut down in an attempt to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, Google Meet found itself taking on water. They needed Schaevitz back at work.
Getting all your cardboard recycled may often seem like a pain, but there is big money to be made from all this so-called “beige gold”. And sadly this is attracting criminals around the world.
I am that person who hates drinking water. Where others enjoy a satisfying thirst quencher, I suffer through a barrage of sulfur, algae, swimming pool, and old metal pipes. Most days I avoid the issue entirely, subsisting on coffee, herbal tea, and the occasional LaCroix. But a few months ago, I began to suspect that chronic dehydration was the reason I continually felt tired and achy. So, in an effort to overcompensate my way to better life habits, I decided to slosh through a feat known across the internet as the Water Gallon Challenge: drinking a gallon per day for a month, with the promise of glowing skin and a lot more energy. Given my taste sensitivities, I went the filtered route and brought with me a hoard of limes, cucumbers, and sea salt, plus an emergency stash of electrolyte mix and a journal to track my energy, yoga performance, and bathroom breaks. Here’s how it went.
In 2021, a Tuscan medieval village will rise out of a lake, under which it has sat submerged since the 1940s, offering travelers to Italy a chance to visit before this ghost town will, once again, be covered with water.
