Rumors and conspiracy theories over a link between the roll out of 5G and the spread of coronavirus have been spread primarily through social media networks. A variety of groups exist on Facebook and Nextdoor, where thousands of members repeat false and misleading claims that 5G is supposedly harmful. One theory claims that the novel coronavirus originated in Wuhan because the Chinese city had recently

One of the few small upsides to the current global mess is that a bunch of movies are hitting streaming services and rental platforms earlier than they otherwise would have: Emma. , Onward , and Birds of Prey are on that list, among many others. Another that’s now streaming early on Hulu is Portrait of a Lady on Fire , which I caught last weekend. It’s a wonderful movie about two women slowly growing closer together over the course of about a week that they’re forced to spend together. The movie revolves around painting, as the title suggests, but the film also does some really fascinating things with music. There are three moments in the movie where music plays, and in all three cases, you don’t see its origin (a piano, singers, an...

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released today recommending that people in the US wear homemade face coverings to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. “This is voluntary. I don’t think I’m going to be doing it,” President Trump said in a press conference today. Since cases of COVID-19 were first reported in the US in January, the CDC said that only health care providers and people who are acutely ill should wear face masks. Health care providers use surgical masks and N95 respirators, which filter out tiny particles in the air, to protect themselves when they’re working closely with sick patients. The White House task force and the CDC has been evaluating their mask recommenda.

However, in this time of immense growth, researchers and journalists have scrutinized the app and found multiple security and privacy risks. People are realizing the free app might actually come with the cost of giving up their personal data. The app’s main selling point, at least to the broader consumer world, is that it offers free, 40-minute conference calls with up to 100 attendees. It’s easy to use — people don’t need a lo.

Zoom requires a meeting host to have an account, as well as the app to start a call, although participants don’t need either. Still, Skype has been playing catch-up to Zoom by making its videoconferencing feature more obvious in the app, and now, by smoothing out the process from...

Methane-consuming serpulid worms on the seafloor off the coast of Costa Rica. | Image: Alvin, WHOI. Scientists exploring deep-sea seeps, where methane bubbles up out of the seafloor, have made a discovery that changes our understanding of these mysterious ecosystems. They found that two species of tube worms actually trap methane, a powerful greenhouse gas, through a never-before-seen symbiotic relationship between the worms and methane-eating bacteria. By mapping the seafloor near Costa Rica with autonomous underwater vehicles, the scientists also realized that these worms were spread out up to 300 meters farther away from the methane seeps than other organisms. , published today in the journal Science Advances , could bolster arguments to

Before moving to New York from Bangkok, we didn’t celebrate Thanksgiving or Christmas, and after my father , it was hard to fully celebrate knowing that the week bookends itself with life and death.

One tradition that our friends could always rely on was having hot pot on his birthday. It’s a Chinese meal consisting of a center pot of simmering...
