Let's get this out of the way upfront: Plenty of people use portable devices - phones, chiefly, but also mobile gaming consoles like the Nintendo Switch and the Steam Deck - while on the toilet. There's a good chance, in fact, that you're reading this article on the toilet. Incredibly, a few surveys have been conducted on the subject. In one conducted by NordVPN earlier this year, 65 percent of respondents (of 9,800 adults surveyed) said they used their phones in the bathroom. But it also just f
Supervisors in San Francisco voted Tuesday to give city police the ability to use potentially lethal, remote-controlled robots in emergency situations -- following an emotionally charged debate that reflected divisions on the politically liberal board over support for law enforcement. The vote was 8-3, with the majority agreeing to grant police the option despite strong objections from civil liberties and other police oversight groups. Opponents said the authority would lead to the further militarization of a police force already too aggressive with poor and minority communities.

Amid rare anti-government protests in China in response to "zero covid" restrictions, soccer fans on social media have been quick to point out an unusual quality in World Cup broadcasts on state TV: They have featured scant footage of the crowd. A review of CCTV's coverage, by no means comprehensive, compared with the official FIFA World Cup stream, other international broadcasts and past CCTV World Cup broadcasts indicates that the online observers might have a point: While other international
New York City will remove more mentally ill people from its streets and subway system, Mayor Eric Adams (D) announced Tuesday, directing the authorities to commit people involuntarily if they are thought to be a harm to themselves, not just to others. The directive clarifies a "gray area where policy, law and accountability have not been clear," Adams said in a public address. Under the directive, outreach workers and police officers are encouraged to intervene when someone is thought to be so m
There had never been an abortion clinic in the quiet college town of Carbondale, Illinois. So when its first clinic opened this fall, it revealed tensions between residents that had largely been hidden. Regine Garmon, a Carbondale resident who works at the clinic, was standing on the sidelines of her son’s basketball game when she overheard a group of parents discussing the clinic’s opening. One mother wondered aloud if the clinic’s employees would encourage local teenagers to be sexually irresp

European Central Bank officials alleged on Wednesday that bitcoin is “rarely used for legal transactions,” is fueled by speculation and the recent erosion in its value indicates that it is on the “road to irrelevance,” in a series of stringent criticism (bereft of strong data points) of the cryptocurrency industry as they urged regulators to not lend legitimacy to digital tokens in the name of innovation. The value of bitcoin recently finding stability at around $20,000 was "an artificially induced last gasp before the road to irrelevance – and this was already foreseeable before FTX went bust and sent the bitcoin price to well down below $16,000,” wrote Ulrich Bindseil and Jürgen Schaaf on ECB’s blog.

The first eruption in 38 years of the world’s largest active volcano is attracting onlookers to a national park for “spectacular” views of the event, and it's also dredging up bad memories among some Hawaii residents who have been through harrowing volcanic experiences in the past. It was just four years ago that Nicole Skilling fled her home near a community where more than 700 residences were destroyed by lava. Officials were initially concerned that lava flowing down the side of the volcano would head toward South Kona, but scientists later assured the public that the eruption migrated to a rift zone on Mauna Loa's northeast flank and wasn't threatening any communities.
