  • Nurture 1, Nature 0 - In the nature vs. nuture debate, a study of 24,000 Norwegian siblings showed firstborns are more likely to have higher IQs.
  • Rubber Ducks - I’m sure you heard of them at some point: 29,000 yellow rubber ducks were spilled into the ocean in 1992. They have since traveled the high seas, visiting Hawaii, Australia and have even traversed a section of the arctic frozen in ice, teaching scientists about ocean currents. They are now expected to end their journey on the coast of England.
  • Sophisticated hack of Greek cell-phone system. From sa, a detailed, interesting article about a multi-year hack of Vodaphone’s greek cellphone infrastructure. What state-run hacking might look like.
