    Before folks sat around the TV watching American Horror Story or classic movies like The Shining and Friday the 13th, they gathered around the radio to listen to their favorite weekly programs. Many of them were comedies or dramas, just like today’s television programs, but there were also shows dedicated to the creepy crawly — that made goosebumps rise and sent shivers down the spine. It’s often said that what you can’t see is scarier than what you can, and radio programs can sweep you up and create a whole spooky world in your imagination. With Halloween coming this weekend,...

    WOLSELEY, Sask. — Some people in a small Saskatchewan community say they are disgusted and disappointed after a beaver was beaten to death with a chair. Residents say surveillance video from a bakery in Wolesley showed four men leaving a bar on Friday and going after the rodent. Resident Joselyn Linnell says the beaver had been hanging out around the village for about a year. Linnell says the animal appears to have hissed at the men before it was killed. She says it’s sad to think there are people in Wolesley who would do that sort of thing. RCMP say...

    A close confidante of Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman was convinced she 'wanted to get away with' keeping all her official emails on a private homebrew server, according to a stolen email released Tuesday by WikiLeaks. In the message chain, Center for American Progress president Neera Tanden told Clinton chairman John Podesta – who was also the far-left group's board chairman – that Clinton should 'immediately' move to hand her entire email archive over to the National Archives. The conversation came one day after The New York Times first published evidence of the former secretary of state's controversial email setup, which...

Geneticist Oscar Ruiz and his team at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston faced the difficult task of mounting the fish embryo at just the right angle to bring its face in focus of their microscope. As luck would have it, the first image they took was a ringer (above). Now, Ruiz says, they are able to take similarly close time-lapse images of...

    The second century C.E. Greek physician and philosopher Galen advised patients suffering from disorders of the spirit to bathe in and drink hot spring water. Modern day brain scientists have posited that GalenÂ’s prescription delivered more than a placebo effect. Lithium has for decades been recognized as an effective mood stabilizer in bipolar disease, and lithium salts may have been present in the springs Galen knew. Yet exactly how lithium soothes the mind has been less than clear. Now, a team led by Ben Cheyette, a neuroscientist at the University of California in San Francisco (UCSF), has linked its success...

Data collected by internet and media companies is a powerful tool, and the big mergers planned by AT&T with Time Warner and Verizon with Yahoo offer those firms more data that can be used to target consumers with content and advertising. Privacy advocates say the prospect of firms using all that online and offline data without safeguards could be alarming. (emphasis mine ) "Twenty-first century media is all about the ability to gather information on a single individual regardless of where they are—whether...

    "This libertarian enjoyed @MMFlint's new film. I'm not voting for Hillary or Trump, but found it funny & very interesting. Check it out." I don't watch Fox News, so maybe this isn't news. Do these people just want to keep their jobs? It's strange how so many of the media's conservatives are not voting for Trump.

    By all accounts the descent started well, with the lander decelerating rapidly as it brushed up against the Martian atmosphere, eventually deploying its parachute as planned. But things began to go squirrely just prior to the five-minute mark of the planned six-minute descent. For reasons that are still a mystery, the lander ejected both its heat shield and parachute way ahead of schedule. Schiaparelli then engaged its thrusters for a painfully brief three-second burst—a procedure that was supposed to last for 30 seconds once the lander was just a few feet off the ground. The lander’s onboard computer, it would...

    We know that the Democrats are going to pull out all the stops to steal this election for Hillary. Instances of vote/election fraud are already being reported in early voting locations around the country. So much of the process is now handled electronically, there's a very real possibility that this election could be stolen without leaving so much as a fingerprint. I suggest that a citizen generated effort could be quickly implemented to help thwart the outright theft of our nation's highest office. My idea is to put a website in place where voters can register how they voted in...

    The telecom giant is doing NSA-style work for law enforcement—without a warrant—and earning millions of dollars a year from taxpayers. Hemisphere is a secretive program run by AT&T that searches trillions of call records and analyzes cellular data to determine where a target is located, with whom he speaks, and potentially why. In 2013, Hemisphere was revealed by The New York Times and described only within a Powerpoint presentation made by the Drug Enforcement Administration. The Times described it as a “partnership” between AT&T and the U.S. government; the Justice Department said it was an essential, and prudently deployed, counter-narcotics...

    The American Academy of Pediatrics is calling for infants to be kept in their parents’ bedroom at night for six months to a year to reduce the risk of sleep-related death. The new recommendations say babies should sleep on a separate surface, in a crib or bassinet, and never on something soft. The guidelines say babies should sleep in the same room as their parents, preferably until they’re a year old. The nation’s most influential pediatricians’ group says it updated its safe-sleep guidance because of studies suggesting that room-sharing reduces the risk of sudden infant death syndrome by as much...
