It’s hard to turn down assignments from one of the world’s more resilient and endearing quadriplegics. If you’ve played...
The hosts scored six second-half goals - three from the penalty spot - and the celebrations started when news of Slovenia's draw with Lithuania filtered through to St. Gallen Michael Lang's first-half goal was added to from penalties by Gokhan Inler, Johan Djourou and Breel Embolo and efforts from Admir Mehmedi, Pajtim Kasami and Eren Derdiyok. Lang broke the deadlock after...

And that's exactly why two researchers think scientists should share their data with others — well before they publish. In this experiment, 29 scientific teams were given the same information about soccer games. They were asked to answer the question...
Starting on September 30th, everybody will be able to install Apple's latest OS X update, El Capitan, on their Macs. El Capitan is the small one in Apple's big-then-small OS update cadence, which means that we have just a few core changes, a bunch of app updates, and a healthy pile of bug fixes. Virtually everybody with Yosemite will (and...
It were perhaps vain to surmise exactly why it was, that as respecting Starbuck, Ahab thus acted. It may have been a flash of honesty in him; or mere prudential policy which, under the circumstance, imperiously forbade the slightest symptom of open disaffection, however transient, in the important chief officer of his ship. However it was, his orders were...

A new Surface and new Lumia smartphones might be what everyone was waiting to hear about at today's Microsoft event, but the company made it clear it's still chugging along in another area: wearables. Microsoft's newest wearable is called Microsoft Band, the same name as last year's activity-tracker. The new one looks sleeker than last year's Band, with a curved,...
