Italian Man Buys A DNA Test, Finds Out He And His Father Are Not Italians At All

Pretty much all of us have heard about the recent hype of genetic genealogy tests. Your friends, coworkers and maybe even family members have taken the test to find out about their ethnicity. The companies providing these tests invested millions of dollars into advertising to stimulate our curiosity. For instance, according to Kantar Media, in 2016 Ancestry.com spent $109 million on TV and other ads in the US. And it worked well, the genetic testing industry had 12 million consumers in 2017 alone. These tests allow you to gain knowledge about your ancestors, find estranged family members or distant cousins. However, not everyone is happy about what they find out. Earlier we wrote an article about how one of this …

61st Annual Grammys Recap: What You Missed Betches

Overall, this recap was a struggle—and I don’t just mean because my hangover is currently setting in at 1:15am. It’s because if you’ve read any one of my articles or recaps, you know that I’m very good at criticism. Shitting on things is like my second language (see: Kylie Jenner, Vanderpump Rules, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, guys who try to hit on me and end up on my IG stories, etc.). What’s not so easy? Recounting a television event that, for the most part, was very good. The 61st annual Grammys were honestly enjoyable—for the first two hours, anyway. After that it felt like what I imagine purgatory feels like, though I may have preferred burning alive. In all …

Brexit healthcare worries for Brits in Spain

Image caption About 70,000 British pensioners live in Spain A S1 certificate is available to anyone in receipt of a state pension, and to some workers who are sent overseas on a temporary basis by their UK employers. The system currently saves the NHS about £450m a year. In 2017, a senior health department official told a parliamentary select committee that Spain charges an average of £2,300 for every pensioner it treats, compared with £4,500 charged by the NHS. Yet there are no guarantees that this arrangement will continue under the Prime Minister Theresa May’s proposals to protect the rights of EU citizens, including the 1.2 million Britons living elsewhere in the EU. London has said the S1 certificate may …

Michelle Obama Got Roasted By Her Own Mom Betches

Moms – they refill your debit card comfort you in times of need, feed you in times of hunger, and roast you when it’s time to stay humble. This goes for teachers, coal miners, billionaires, and apparently even first ladies. We all remember Michelle Obama’s iconic Grammys appearance this week, but one person who was less than impressed was Michelle’s own mother, Marian Robinson. Like the true GOAT, Michelle shared a screenshot of her and Mrs. Robinson’s post-Grammys text exchange, and her mom definitely seemed less than impressed. A post shared by Feb 12, 2019 at 10:35pm PST Damn. The savagery. First of all, if Michelle Obama isn’t a “real star” then who the f*ck is? Second of all, I’m …

KFC demoted an employee for wanting to pump at work. She just won a $1.5 million lawsuit against them.

Women have been re-entering the workforce after giving birth for decades now. You would think that employers would know how to treat new moms back on the job, but apparently some people still have a lot of learning to do. When Autumn Lampkins was hired to be an assistant manager at a Delaware Kentucky Fried Chicken just months after giving birth, she was told her new job wouldn’t interfere with her need to pump breastmilk. Instead, it did nothing but interfere. Lampkins claimed the KFC outlet gave her a hard time for wanting (and let’s face it, needing) to pump breast milk during her working hours. Lampkins filed a lawsuit against her former employer, stating she was demoted over it. …

5 Things You Should Never Put In A Professional Email Betches

Writing emails at work is probably one of those things you do every day without even thinking about it. Yet, if you’ve ever had a coworker say something embarrassing on an accidental “reply all”, you can quickly be reminded that the everyday act of emailing can quickly end your career. Professional emails can be serious business. As much as you might want to fill your email with gifs, memes, and anything that reminds your office that yes, you are a millennial, having a job also means to need to show some sort of resemblance of professionalism. (If only your coworkers saw what you are planning on wearing to Coachella.) Now, all office cultures are certainly different. I still believe that as a …

Time expert fears sundials are ‘old hat’

Image caption The Selwyn College ‘nobus’ shadow falls between four and five hours (marked in gold) after sunrise – so it’s almost midday A Fellow in Computer Science at Churchill College, Dr King has taught the likes of £100m donor David Harding and Raspberry Pi founder Eben Upton, but also admits to having an “obsession with time”. Image caption Cambridge University’s official clock is above the west door of Great St Mary’s Church How do sundials work?

The latitude and gradient are taken into account to decide the precise location, ideally on a south-facing wall. Its accuracy varies …

Chicago police say person questioned in connection with Jussie Smollett attack has been on ‘Empire’

Chicago (CNN)One of the two men investigators have questioned as persons of interest in the alleged attack on actor Jussie Smollett has appeared on the show “Empire,” Chicago Police Spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said Thursday. A law enforcement source with knowledge of the investigation said that Uber and Yellow Cab were helpful in tracking the men’s whereabouts on the night of the attack. Smollett, one of the stars of “Empire,” told authorities he was attacked early January 29 by two men who yelled “racial and homophobic slurs.” Smollett alleged that one attacker put a rope around his neck and poured an unknown chemical substance on him before running away.

See The Moment A Satellite Successfully Harpoons Space Debris

In one of the world’s first attempts to clean up space, a new satellite designed under the RemoveDEBRIS program is using its harpoon-capture system to tackle the growing problem of space garbage. The slow-motion video shows the harpoon mechanism stab through a piece of space garbage and successfully retract it into its system. Designed by Airbus Stevenage, the harpoon is constructed of a 1.5-meter (95-foot) boom deployed from the RemoveDEBRIS spacecraft with a satellite panel on the end. The harpoon can speed at a target at 20 meters (66 feet) per second in order to penetrate and capture debris. “This is RemoveDEBRIS’ most demanding experiment and the fact that it was a success is [a] testament to all involved. The RemoveDEBRIS …

The Best Bachelor Recap Youll Ever Read: Season 23, Week 6 Betches

BachelorIf you’ll recall, when last we left off Onyeka and Nicole were in the middle of World War III, despite the fact that their entire reason for being in each other’s lives was sitting right next to them. Colton’s expression throughout that fight was the same look my dad used to wear when he was trying to reason with me and my sister during a fight over who stole whose Delia’s top and had the audacity to wear it on school picture day (she did). Colton stormed off in a fit of rage (not unlike my dad) to go cry on a sand dune about how some of the women—GASP—might actually be there for fame and not love. The Rose …

Google to invest $13 billion in US data centers and offices this year

(CNN Business)The future of Google increasingly lies outside Silicon Valley. As tech companies grow larger and expand into media, advertising and hardware, they are also turning to newer tech hubs like Austin and New York City for talent. At the same time, the push into the fast-growing cloud computing market requires more investment in data centers in the US and abroad. On a conference call with analysts after the Alphabet earnings report in February, Pichai said investing in data centers is necessary to “lay the groundwork” for its bets on cloud computing, advertising, YouTube and machine learning. While Google may be expanding beyond Silicon Valley, it will almost certainly find itself competing for talent against its usual Silicon Valley rivals. …

Runner who suffocated mountain lion with his foot describes the attack

(CNN)Last Monday, Travis Kauffman went for a run near Fort Collins, Colorado. Little did he know his workout would include suffocating a mountain lion. “It was just pure adrenaline,” he told reporters. “There was a certain point where I just kind of imagined being stuck on this hillside and eventually just having a cat gnaw at me, which is a creepy way to go. But, for the most part, the adrenaline just kept kicking in at those moments.” Runner: My heart sank into my stomach Kauffman was running in the Horsetooth Mountain Open Space on February 4 when he heard the rustling of pine needles somewhere behind him. He typically wouldn’t have turned his head to look, assuming the noise …

California Is Being Drenched By An Atmospheric River So What Are These Rivers In The Sky?

Throw those rain slickers on and slip into those mud boots if you’re in California, because it’s going to be a muddy, windy, rainy few days. A weather phenomenon called an “atmospheric river” is snaking its way through the golden state. An atmospheric river is a slender, transient column of condensed water vapor from the tropics located up in the atmosphere – “like a river in the sky,” according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). When the “river” makes it to land, it’s usually in the form of heavy rain or snowfall. This current event is also known as a “Pineapple Express” because the moisture originated near Hawaii and traveled to the Western US. Typically, atmospheric rivers are around 1,600 kilometers (1,000 …
