Forget whitewalls, Lexus has a car with all-white tires

But everything old becomes new again, and now designer John Elliott has teamed up with Lexus to create a bright white set of kicks for its new UX crossover. (Nike) Unfortunately for those who only drive in hermetically sealed rooms, the tires are not for sale. They’re just part of a promotional project aimed at proving how cool the UX is. But you can still get old-school white tires, as long as you drive an appropriately old-school car.

Leaving EU with no deal ‘very adverse’

“Leaving without a deal would have a very adverse effect, to put it mildly, on our economy, on our security and on the integrity of the union,” he said. The justice secretary said he hoped a deal will have been struck by 27 February, when the next round of Brexit votes are scheduled in the Commons. But he continued: “If not, then we will have to act responsibly and make sure the economy is protected, our security is protected and the integrity of the union is protected. “I have very grave concerns about the consequences of leaving without a deal.” Mr Gauke has previously suggested Brexit might have to be delayed. But Mr Dodds told a meeting of party members …

This Interactive Map Shows You Just How Much Climate Change Will Affect Your Hometown

Climate change is one of the biggest threats currently facing the planet, if not the biggest threat. So much so that the World Economic Forum has warned we are “sleepwalking into catastrophe”. The planet is already starting to feel some of the effects of this change, from the record-breaking heatwaves in Australia to the number of extreme weather events in the US. Yet, it can be extremely hard to picture how something as seemingly abstract as climate change will affect us in the future – and this is where Matt Fitzpatrick from the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science steps in. Fitzpatrick and his colleague Robert R. Dunn have built an interactive map, matching 540 urban areas across the US and Canada to towns and cities whose contemporary …

So Long, Opportunity And Thanks For All The Science

NASA has confirmed that the Opportunity rover has ceased operations. The rover had not been heard from since June 10, 2018, when the global dust storm that enveloped Mars sent it into hibernation. Over the last few months, NASA has regularly tried to contact the rover, with the latest attempt made on February 12. “I was there with the team when these commands went out in the deep sky and I learned this morning that we had not heard back, and our beloved Opportunity remained silent.” NASA’s Associate administrator, Thomas Zurbuchen said during the press briefing. “It is therefore that I am standing here with a sense of deep appreciation and gratitude, that I declare the Opportunity mission complete.” Opportunity …

Solving world hunger is complicated. This brilliant solution is one we haven’t seen yet.

Would you eat food grown on top of a landfill? Your first reaction may not be the right one. Right now, you’re probably feeling a little grossed out. Who could ever imagine that food grown on top of a dump could be edible? But here’s something even more sobering to consider: one in eight Americans struggle with food insecurity. Food deserts are a huge contributor to that statistic. These are remote places (often rural) where local produce isn’t readily available. Few grocery stores sell fresh food there, they don’t have farmer’s markets (something many of us are used to in metropolitan areas) or community vegetable gardens. That’s where Joy Youwakim comes in. She discovered an innovative approach to growing produce …

Experts Are Increasingly Concerned About Dogs’ Threat To Wild Animals

Sorry, but your good boy might not be such a good boy after all. Conservationists are increasingly worried about the effects our furry best friends are having on the environment – and the animals in it. A study published this week found that humans are directly responsible for the death of more than a quarter of land vertebrates worldwide. But our pets are not much better. According to a BBC News article, scientists are now saying that dogs have already contributed to the extinction of almost a dozen species, including the Hawaiian rail. Dozens more are at risk. That includes 30 listed as critically endangered and a further 71 listed as endangered on the IUCN Red List In 2016, researchers found there were as many …

Sinaloa cartel marches on after El Chapo arrest, conviction

“It’s still a major, major force in the Mexican criminal underworld,” Mexican security analyst Alejandro Hope said. The cartel still controls a worldwide web of contacts that can move Colombian cocaine to Cameroon and Mexican meth cooks to Malaysia. It also controls seaports to get drugs and precursor chemicals shipped in from around the globe; employs labs and chemists to process them; bribes corrupt cops to ensure the drugs can be moved to the border; has engineered multimillion-dollar tunnels to smuggle tons of marijuana and cocaine under the frontier; and pays “mules” to ferry shipments in cars and trucks. That doesn’t even count the armies of hitmen and enforcers who moonlight in extortion and kidnapping, plus the money launderers, front …

Howard Schultz: Americans need more opportunities

(CNN)It is difficult to find Americans who believe the government is working for them. Luckily, I inherited my mother’s optimism that I could make a better life for myself. I also grew up at a time when access to education and a first job helped me earn success. After I became the first in my family to go to college, I got a job in sales, where I learned what it means to be accountable. Since then, and throughout my career, I have worked with teams of talented people to address many of our country’s challenges by making opportunities like access to health care, jobs, and education available to more people. Over its history, Starbucks has employed some 3 million …

Scientists Are Sharing Their Brilliant, Nerdy, And Adorable Valentine’s Poems On Twitter

If you thought scientists couldn’t be romantic, then you would be wrong. However, if you didn’t think they would also take the opportunity to turn what some consider to be a commercialized “holiday” into a way to celebrate science in a brilliant, nerdy way through a variety of posts that are in turn sweet, poignant, funny, and clever, you would also be wrong.   Scientists have been sharing their versions of the old “Roses are red, Violets are blue…” poem, the origin of which dates back over 400 years, in a rather more modern format, posting on Twitter under the hashtag #ScienceValentines. From surprisingly sweet and yet scientifically informative, to rather scathing of some of the unsavory attitudes floating around today …

Classic American typewriters survive the computer age as nostalgia keeps them alive and clickin

“It’s been happening for the last couple of years,” Schweitzer told Fox News in a phone interview. HERE’S HOW TO BLOCK ROBOCALLS ON IPHONE AND ANDROID “The younger people are rediscovering typewriters because there are too many distractions [with today’s technology]. You can concentrate more,” Schweitzer added. Schweitzer, who is 80 years old, still works six days a week and personally delivered two IBM typewriters to customers on Friday morning. In fact, business is booming so much that Gramercy Typewriter just opened a new store in New York City, according to Schweitzer. He cited Underwood, Royal, Remington, and IBM as popular brands of typewriters that were manufactured in the U.S. Martin Quezada, who runs International Office Machines in Los Angeles, was told twenty years ago …
