    • Philippines' Duterte tells Japan his China visit was just economics, blasts U.S

      By Kiyoshi Takenaka and Linda Sieg TOKYO (Reuters) - Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte sought to assure Japan on Wednesday that his high-profile visit to rival China last week was about economics, not security, and vowed to stand on Tokyo's side over the disputed South China Sea when the time came. Earlier in the day, Duterte reiterated his harsh words for long-time ally Washington, saying he might end defence treaties. The volatile Philippine leader's visit to Japan comes amid jitters about his foreign policy goals after weeks of verbal attacks on ally the United States and overtures towards China.

    • Russia Unveils The New 'Satan 2' Missile That Can Supposedly Wipe Texas Off The Map

      Russia has been in the news lately largely thanks to its attempts to relaunch the Cold War on the internet and its unquestioning support of the Assad regime in Syria. The Satan 2, officially known as the RS-28 Sarmat, has been an open secret for a while now as Russia has more or less engaged in the geopolitical equivalent of a marketing campaign. The Sarmat has been rumored to have missed several key points on its development timeline, and modern Russia is notorious for making claims about its military capability that are not backed up by fact.

    • The Tesla Model S P100D has smashed another record with a blistering 10.76 second quarter-mile

      When we talk about how fast Tesla's are, we tend to focus on how fast Tesla's vehicles can go from 0-60. The recently released Tesla Model S P100D, for example, is an absolute rocket and can go from 0-60 in 2.5 seconds flat. Understandably proud, Tesla CEO Elon Musk appropriately calls the Model S P100D the fastest production car in the world. But here's the thing: nobody in the real world really lives in a universe where 0-60 time even matters. And yet, we're still overly concerned with 0-60 times as if getting up to that speed in 2.5 seconds as opposed to 3 seconds is all that important or significant. Even the brilliant Vin Diesel eschews the 0-60 metric and instead chooses to live his life a quarter mile at a time. Sure, the quarter mile time is just as pointless as 0-60, but in the interest of spicing things up a bit, the enterprising folks over at DragTimes were up to their old tricks again this weekend when they took a Tesla Model S P100D on a record-setting quarter-mile run. DON'T MISS:  Xiaomi just announced the iPhone 8 we’re expecting next year When the dust settled, Tesla's flagship car completed a quarter mile in just 10.76 seconds flat. "We set a new NEDRA certified record for an electric or any all stock 4 door car with the Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous running 10.76 in the 1/4 mile at Palm Beach International Raceway," DragTimes notes. Further highlighting how much faster the Tesla Model S has become over the years, the publication adds: "[The] 1/4 miles times dropped astoundingly from the P85 @ 12.3, P85D @ 11.6, P90DL @ 11.2 and now the P100DL @ 10.7, the You can check out the full video below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eq3M-8ZHUWM

    • Clearing the ‘jungle’ migrant camp in Calais, France (34 photos)

      Migrants pushed against police lines outside Calais’ “Jungle” camp on Tuesday, waiting for processing as government workers prepared to move in to start clearing the sprawling shanty-town. Hundreds of camp dwellers, many carrying all their possessions in backpacks, waited for buses to take them on to temporary accommodation across France, as the start of a massive operation to demolish the site. Some kept warm around piles of burning rubbish in the camp, a filthy expanse that has become a symbol of Europe’s failed migration policies as member states bicker over who should take in asylum-seekers and economic migrants. There was no repeat of the minor skirmishes with security forces seen over the weekend and French officials said the early stages of the demolition operation were going peacefully. For many of the migrants fleeing war and poverty in Syria, Afghanistan and other conflict zones, the closure of the “Jungle” marked the end of a dream to reach Britain, which lies a tantalizingly short sea crossing away.

    • Alert level raised for Alaska volcano after explosion detected

      Scientists raised the alert level for a remote Aleutian volcano on Monday after an explosion was detected on the mountain and heard by residents of a tiny village some 45 miles (72 km) away, a monitoring website said. Cleveland Volcano, a 5,676-foot (1,730-metre) peak on the uninhabited Chuginadak Island, about 940 miles (1,504 km) southwest of Anchorage, was raised to orange from yellow by the Alaska Volcano Observatory. The observatory said that an explosion was detected on Cleveland by both infrasound and seismic data and heard by residents of Nikolski, a settlement of less than 50 people on Umnak Island about 45 miles (72 km) to the east.

    • Philippines' Duterte tells worried foreign businesses to go

      President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday urged foreign businesses in the Philippines worried about his deadly drug war to "pack up and leave", as he launched another anti-American tirade before flying to Japan to attract investments. Duterte voiced outrage at comments made the previous day by the top US envoy to Asia that his fiery rhetoric and crime war, which has claimed about 3,700 lives in four months, were bad for business. "These Americans are really crazy," Duterte said, as he held up a newspaper with headlines reporting criticism from US assistant secretary of state Daniel Russel.

    • Driverless truck from Uber's Otto makes Colorado beer delivery

      A self-driving truck built by Uber's unit Otto made a pioneering delivery of beer in Colorado last week, Otto announced Tuesday. The 18-wheel semi loaded down with Budweiser made the 120 mile (200 kilometer) trip from Fort Collins through the center of crowded Denver to Colorado Springs using only its panoply of cameras, radar and sensors to read the road. The test came just six weeks after Uber launched its demonstration self-driving car service in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, gaining a jump on the many automakers that are now developing systems for cars and trucks to pilot themselves.

    • Exclusive: WHO cancer agency asked experts to withhold weedkiller documents

      In a letter and an email seen by Reuters, officials from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) cautioned scientists who worked on a review in 2015 of the weedkiller glyphosate against releasing requested material. The review, published in March 2015, concluded glyphosate is "probably carcinogenic," putting IARC at odds with regulators around the world. Critics say they want the documents to find out more about how IARC reached its conclusion.

    • Here's how you need to prank your kids this Halloween

      Now that Halloween is just days away, it's time to line up your last-minute costumes, candy, tricks and, of course, treats.  Many parents take advantage of the spooky festivities, and use the holiday as an opportunity to prank their kids. Don't feel too bad — just think about how much candy you're allowing them to eat. If you're fresh out of ideas for tricking your kids, you can find inspiration from British journalist Mark Sparrow, who shared a horrifying image on Twitter Monday of a chocolate-covered brussels sprout.   It'll soon be Halloween so time to prepare some yummy treats for the neighbourhood kids. Try dipping Brussels sprouts in chocolate for them. pic.twitter.com/HFXGA9vFSV — Mark Sparrow (@MarkGSparrow) October 24, 2016 Although the vegetable has become trendy in the last few years, they still haven't caught on with kids. And even if your kid likes brussels sprouts, an unexpected, raw green in the middle of their chocolate treat will definitely come as a shock.  Whatever you do, don't hand these out to kids in your neighborhood. Sparrow was definitely just trolling. Your kids are fair game though.  Sparrows followers were equally horrified and ecstatic at the idea of trolling some kids.  @MarkGSparrow toffee onion anyone? pic.twitter.com/YMSyyeXLCD — So Called Chris (@turbocracky) October 24, 2016 @MarkGSparrow don't you have to wrap them? @Regierungs4tel pic.twitter.com/qHQrK0equ1 — annabert (@AnnaAlbern) October 25, 2016 @MarkGSparrow @NotQuiteNigella perfect  can't wait to try this... Maybe some olives too — Peachy Keen Foods (@PeachyKeenFoods) October 25, 2016 @MarkGSparrow @aliaemily Pure evil! Can't wait to do it. :-) — Willard Dix (@willdix55) October 25, 2016 Sparrow even suggested a slight twist to his sinister plan. @aliaemily @willdix55 For super evil dip them raw. If your nice, just blanch them in boiling water and dip in chilli oil. — Mark Sparrow (@MarkGSparrow) October 25, 2016 Sadly, chocolate-covered brussels sprouts are actually a thing, according to the Daily Mail, but draw your own conclusions on that source.  Bonus: Little Star Wars fan may have the cutest costume this Halloween

    • Apple iPhone sales fall but beat estimates; shares slip

      Apple Inc posted its third successive quarter of declining iPhone sales on Tuesday, sending shares slipping despite the promise of better-than-expected holiday sales. "In essence, in China and elsewhere, while Apple’s products are still seen favorably, the distance between Apple and its competitors is nowhere near as great as it once was," Neil Saunders, head of retail research firm Conlumino, wrote in a note. Apple shares fell 2.8 percent to $114.99 in after-hours trading.
