Landslide gains speed, threatens Wyoming resort homes

Slow moving landslide threatens businesses and homes in Jackson Hole, WyomingA slow-moving landslide threatening the affluent Wyoming community of Jackson is picking up speed, and efforts to stabilize the area were called off because of safety concerns, city officials said on Friday. The mass movement has displaced residents of several homes and two apartment buildings that sit near the base of the East Gros Ventre Butte which geologists said was slumping at a rate that this week increased to a foot a day from four inches. "The fractured mass wants to slide down and gravity is pulling it down," Peter Ward, a retired geologic hazards expert with the U.S. Geological Survey, said on Friday at a town meeting.

New Samsung transparent displays blur the line between virtual reality and the real world

New Samsung transparent displays blur the line between virtual reality and the real worldAlthough Samsung often gets tagged as a copycat in the realm of smartphones, the company really does produce some remarkable innovations, particularly in the realm of displays. Patent Shot has spotted a recently filed Samsung patent for a new kind of transparent display technology that can be used to convincingly add digital images to the real world and thus blur the line between virtual reality and physical reality. What makes this technology particularly impressive is the way it’s capable of tracking where a user is and adjusting the image accordingly. So if you had a store window with a virtual display set up on one of Samsung’s transparent screens, people looking at it would be able to see it from

Sharp-shooting Westwood stretches lead in Malaysia

Lee Westwood lines up a putt on the fifteenth hole during the second round of the Maybank Malaysian Open in Kuala Lumpur on April 18, 2014Lee Westwood stretched his lead at the Malaysian Open on Friday, putting on a clinic with his irons as the Englishman moved closer to ending a nearly two-year title drought. Westwood notched a six-under 66 on day two to move to 13-under at the tournament's half-way point, four strokes clear of Belgium's Nicolas Colsaerts and Antonio Lascuna of the Philippines. Precise wedge play put Westwood in position to sink five birdie putts from within four feet (one metre) on the front nine at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club. "I'm playing a lot better since I started working with Mike Walker about six or seven weeks ago.

Lakers, Knicks, Celtics miss playoffs, seek help

Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni reacts during the game against the Los Angeles Clippers on March 6, 2014 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, CaliforniaFor the first time in NBA history, the Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics and New York Knicks are all absent from the playoffs in the same season. While that will not break any hearts for the 16 clubs who begin their championship quests this weekend, it does leave three of the most iconic franchise in NBA history struggling in search of a new direction. "As a whole, the season was very disappointing for everybody," Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni said. The Lakers went 27-55, missing the playoffs for the first time since 2005 and only the sixth season in team history.

'TV, film lag behind other Cuba reforms'

Two Cubans are at the entrance of a 3D cinema and cafeteria in Havana on November 15, 2013Cuban television and cinema are lagging behind other industries that have seen recent reform on the communist island, a writers' and artists' group wrote in a report published on Friday. The study released by Cuba's Commission on Culture and Media urged the Havana government to create television and film programming not under government control, among other proposed reforms. "Cuba's television system is urged to make structural and productive changes, in keeping with the current reality in the rest of the country," said the report, published after a recent gathering of the Union of Cuban Writers and Artists, known by its Spanish acronym UNEAC. The film and television industries currently are plagued by problems that have gotten worse over time, including "a shortage of funding, poor leadership, disorganization and a lack of discipline."

Next Up for NASA's Planet-Hunting Kepler Telescope: Finding Earth's True Twin?

Next Up for NASA's Planet-Hunting Kepler Telescope: Finding Earth's True Twin?NASA's planet-hunting Kepler space telescope has just spotted Earth's cousin. On Thursday (April 17), astronomers announced the discovery of Kepler-186f, the first Earth-size alien planet ever found in its host star's "habitable zone" — that just-right range of distances that could allow liquid water, and perhaps life, to exist on a world's surface. While the discovery is a watershed moment, Kepler-186f still falls short of the ultimate prize in exoplanet science: a true "alien Earth." That's because the newfound world orbits a red dwarf, a star much smaller and dimmer than our own sun. "One of the things we've been looking for is maybe an Earth twin, which is an Earth-size planet in the habitable zone of a sunlike star," said Kepler scientist Tom Barclay, a member of the team that found Kepler-186f.

SpaceX Launches Robotic Cargo Mission to Space Station

SpaceX Launches Robotic Cargo Mission to Space StationSpaceX launched a robotic capsule into orbit today (April 18), kicking off the company's third contracted cargo mission to the International Space Station for NASA, along with an ambitious rocket reusability test. SpaceX's unmanned Dragon spacecraft blasted off at 3:25 p.m. EDT (1925 GMT) today from Florida's Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, riding into space atop the company's Falcon 9 rocket. Dragon is scheduled to rendezvous with the orbiting lab on Sunday (April 20), when it will offload nearly 5,000 lbs. (2,268 kilograms) of food, scientific experiments and supplies. SpaceX also aimed to return the rocket's first stage softly to Earth, to help develop and demonstrate reusable-rocket technology, which company representatives say could dramatically reduce the cost of spaceflight in the future.

Whoopi Goldberg debuts as marijuana columnist

Whoopi GoldbergOscar-winning actress, comedienne and talk-show host Whoopi Goldberg sang the praises of marijuana inhaled through a pocket vaporizer on Thursday as she made her debut as an online pot columnist. In fact, her name is Sippy." wrote Goldberg, 58, about her pocket vaporizer on "The Cannabist," a pot-friendly website run by the Denver Post newspaper in Colorado. The Rocky Mountain state was the second in the United States, after Washington in the Pacific Northwest, to legalize marijuana for recreational use. But in a country where, at the federal level, marijuana is classified as an illegal drug on a par with heroin, Goldberg said Sippy's compact proportions helps maintain discretion.
