Why does a huge swath of the country have hardly any wind turbines at all? Wind turbines have cropped up like dandelions across large areas of the United States, and thousands more are coming. The US Department of Energy projects that we'll have 404 gigawatts of wind energy capacity across the country by 2050, up from 89 GW today. Since overall electricity demand is expected to hold steady, that would fulfill more than one-third of the country's needs. Texas alone, with 22.6 gigawatts installed, would rank sixth in the world today in total wind capacity if it... [Read More]

This week in 2018 has been dominated by video game news, since the E3 conference in Los Angeles just wrapped up. The most exciting game I could find from this week in 1998 was the Nintendo 64 puzzler Wetrix, which essentially combined Tetris with terraforming. You can dig up the game itself through emulator sites, and Nintendo Life wrote a great piece about its weird development history — it was the accidental byproduct of a completely different project called Vampire Circus, which was sadly never produced. Otherwise, the news this week tapped a rich vein of anxiety over digital... [Read More]

Under Attorney General Jeff Sessions' new "zero-tolerance" immigration policy, everyone who attempts to cross the border — even those seeking asylum — are being prosecuted. Because of the way that policy is enforced, almost 2,000 children have been separated from their parents in six weeks. Experts, mental health groups, and human rights organizations all say this could cause serious, lasting harm to children and their parents. Here's how forced family separation affects people for the rest of their lives. Babies ripped from parents' arms. Tent cities. Mass trials. Suicides. Reports about what's happening to children and...

The Honda Accord is one of the best-selling cars in the US. Last year, Honda sold more than 322,000 Accords. Over the decades, the Accord has earned a sterling reputation for having strong build quality, great interior ergonomics, and impeccably engineered powertrains. The 10th generation Accord is all new for 2018. Our Honda Accord 2.0T Sport test car is powered by a 252 horsepower, 2.0-liter, turbocharged, inline-four-cylinder engine. A 192 hp turbo four and a 212 hp hybrid are also available. We were impressed by the Accord's new infotainment system, interior design, and powerful turbocharged engine. The... [Read More]

The US Senate recently shared over 450 pages of Facebook's responses to questions from Senators, as the company attempted to address the numerous questions CEO Mark Zuckerberg was unable to answer during his April 10 testimony. The testimony focused on the role Facebook played in a number of scandals involving the improper handling of user data, particularly in the year leading up to the 2016 presidential election. Ads from Russian operatives that were able to target users based on their interests and beliefs littered Facebook feeds, and many users became aware that their data had been improperly obtained...
