Stephen Hawking's most famous theory about black holes has just been given a sinister update — one that proclaims that everything in the universe is doomed to evaporate. In 1974, Hawking proposed that black holes eventually evaporate by losing what's now known as Hawking radiation — a gradual draining of energy in the form of light particles that spring up around black holes' immensely powerful gravitational fields. Now, a new update to the theory has suggested that Hawking radiation isn't just created by stealing energy from black holes, but from all objects with enough mass.

As for the former, Corcoran said now is the time to buy. “It's a good time to buy because the minute interest rates go down, everybody's waiting for them to go down even by a point, and when they do, they're going to come rushing back in the market,” Corcoran said.
An Alaska fishing adventure became a nightmare for a family of eight when disaster struck one of the two boats they chartered over the Memorial Day weekend, leaving three people dead and two more missing despite a desperate search over hundreds of square miles of ocean. The tragedy tore the Tyau family apart: Two sisters and one of their husbands are dead, while the other's partner and the boat captain remain missing off southeast Alaska four days after the boat was found partially submerged off an island. The sisters and their sister-in-law didn't like fishing but joined the vacation to spend more time with a family that was usually split between Hawaii and Los Angeles.
A U.S. Air Force officer helping to spearhead the service's work on artificial intelligence and machine learning says that a simulated test saw a drone attack its human controllers after deciding on its own that they were getting in the way of its mission.

This also comes amid a broader surge in concerns about the potentially dangerous impacts of artificial intelligence and related technologies.

Former Trump White House press secretary-turned-Fox News host Kayleigh McEnany deployed a favorite Donald Trump line on the air Thursday, days after the former president bizarrely insulted her as “milktoast.” McEnany, who Trump accused of understating his poll numbers against GOP 2024 rival Ron DeSantis, resorted to her former boss' old “tears in their eyes” routine during a fawning analysis of his comments on the campaign trail in Iowa. “I don't know if there is anyone in the race that can do it quite like him with a room with voters,” she said of Trump, recalling being “in Maine with him, I'll never forget him talking to fishermen.”

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) has changed her position on the public release of the tapes documenting the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection, warning Friday that their release could “put the security of the Capitol at risk.” Greene said in an interview on the right-wing channel Real America's Voice that releasing the video footage publicly would jeopardize the Capitol's security and endanger those who were present at the Capitol grounds but did not enter the Capitol nor commit crimes. “Number two, we also endanger many Americans that were simply standing on the Capitol grounds, maybe never even walked through the Capitol or committed any crimes, but they could have just walked further than where the barrier was simply because the barrier was torn down by the time they got there,” Greene continued.
