    A Microsoft-led team has withdrawn a controversial research paper into quantum computing, published in 2018. The research claimed to have found evidence of an elusive subatomic particle Microsoft suggested could help the development of more powerful computers. But it now says mistakes were made. The journal Nature has published a retraction. And the paper's authors have apologised for "insufficient scientific rigour". But the company has said it remains confident of its wider efforts on quantum computing. The paper had been hailed as a breakthrough. But some scientists remained sceptical. Quantum computing has been seen as a potentially revolutionary leap forward,...

    Nearly 90 % of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the United States could be clinically insignificant and non-contagious, according to a recent newspaper analysis of laboratory data, raising the possibility that the widespread coronavirus mitigation measures put in place over the last several months may have been based in part on overstated viral test results. Public health experts throughout the U.S. are raising concerns that "standard [COVID-19] tests are diagnosing huge numbers of people who may be carrying relatively insignificant amounts of the virus," the New York Times reported on Saturday. A significant majority of the individuals who test positive "are...

    Officials have begun the process of changing out signs in Glacier National Park in Montana declaring that the glacier would be gone by 2020.

One thing is consistent: the glaciers in the park are shrinking.” Kurzman said park officials were...

    A former Trump campaign aide who claimed she was “forcibly kissed” by Donald Trump during his presidential bid has dropped her lawsuit over the episode. Alva Johnson is also dropping another part of her suit that alleged the Trump campaign underpaid women and minority employees.

However, the outlook for the legal challenge dimmed in July when lawyers for Trump filed with the court and released publicly a video...

The claims ranged from Christine Blasey Ford’s remotely plausible if unsubstantiated allegation of a violent attempted rape to Michael Avenatti’s completely outlandish and also unsubstantiated allegation of hosting serial gang rape parties. From September 12 to October 6, the claims absolutely dominated all major media. They ran on the front pages of all major newspapers and filled the hours on cable and network news. Magazine journalists at The New Yorker ran with the claims, despite massive corroboration problems. The claims were taken so...
