USA TODAY “WASHINGTON – Billionaire and activist Tom Steyer has ended his presidential campaign.
In his speech Saturday night, Steyer, 62, thanked his supporters and campaign staff, saying he ‘has zero regrets.’
‘There’s no question today that this campaign, we were disappointed with where we came out,’ Steyer told the crowd in South Carolina. "Honestly, I can't see a path where I can win the presidency.’" USA TODAY
"Dust devils" aren't exactly uncommon on Mars — it's a dusty, windy planet. But capturing one in motion is rare, making NASA's latest photo from the red planet particularly intriguing. The High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera, the most powerful camera ever sent to another planet, captured the epic photo back in October, its team at the University of Arizona said Monday. It's been capturing photos onboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter since 2006, sending out-of-this-world photos back to astronomers on Earth ever since. The HiRISE team explains that dust devils are fleeting whirlwinds of air, formed under low pressure and made visible by the dust they swirl around. They exist both on Earth and Mars and can reach speeds of up to 100 mph. "There are several HiRISE images of tracks left behind by dust devils, but it is rare to catch one in motion," HiRISE team member Sharon Wilson said in a press release. This particularly visible Martian dust devil has a core of roughly 164 feet across, and it formed on the planet's smooth volcanic plains known as the Amazonis Planitia. "The dark streak on the ground behind the dust devil is its shadow," Wilson said. "The length of the shadow suggests the plume of rotating dust rises about 650 meters (2,100 feet) into the atmosphere!" Dust devils are just one of the many phenomena humans may have to contend with on a future mission to Mars. And they can be pretty terrifying — NASA captured a photo of a 12-mile-high dust devil back in 2012.

Coronavirus and its global sweep stokes fear over facts. Experts say it's unlikely to produce 'apocalyptic scenario'
USA TODAY “The good and bad of coronavirusAt the risk of employing a cliché, there is good and bad news that experts say will reassure the fearful while stirring merited concern.
Let’s start with the bad news.
This is probably only the beginning of global pandemics. Two reasons: the relentless encroachment of human beings into animal worlds where viruses rarely had the chance to jump species; and the interconnected nature of the jet age.
In the case of COVID-19, a theory is that a bat with the virus gave it to a lizard-like creature called a pangolin, which poachers kill by the thousands for their delicate scales. Once in the human host, the virus made its way to Wuhan and from there, the world.
‘This is all linked to a situation we have created,’ says Ilaria Capua, director of the One Health Center of Excellence at the University of Florida-Gainesville, which aims to advance a healthy coexistence between the human, plant and animal worlds. ‘We are in the field of the unknown. But you can only find things out by experiencing them.’
Capua made international headlines in 2006 when, working out of an Italian institute, she sequenced an avian flu virus – which is critical to creating a vaccine – and urged researches worldwide to share any such data breakthroughs.” USA TODAY
Imagine the political ad now: Bernie Sanders, Tax and Spend Socialist. Just imagine the campaign against Bernie Sanders, it will make the political cartoon above look mild.
I understand. It's Friday evening and you've had a hard week. The cupboard is bare, but you can't face the idea of fighting the crowds at a restaurant and standing around for an hour until your little square gizmo starts jangling and lighting up. You finally get to a table, but it's a good twenty minutes before anyone shows up to take your order. You figure if you finally get something to eat by 9:00 you'll be lucky. So instead, you go home and pick up the phone and call for pizza delivery.
“The app called DoNotPay can help you complete tasks as simple as getting a refund for airplane wifi that doesn't work, avoiding parking ticket fees or unsubscribing to a service you no longer use --- but it can also help you sue anyone in a U.S. small claims court in which the plaintiff is suing for $10,000 or less.
‘I created the app about four years ago," DoNotPay founder Joshua Browder told FOX Business. "At the time, I got a lot of parking tickets. After I received my fifth ticket, I realized you get out of paying these fees pretty easily if you make a reasonable case, but you need a lawyer.’" Read more from Fox Business
