A group of scientists led by Sir David Attenborough is asking the Welsh government to specifically outlaw the teaching of creationism across all schools, amid concerns that a forthcoming tweak to the national curriculum may allow religious-leaning learning establishments to gloss over science and have children growing up thinking it's God that develops all the apps and games.

A total of 46 famed thinkers and representatives of scientific groups have signed a letter to the Welsh government asking that students are taught evolution and evolution alone from now on, and that "creationism as science" has no place in modern schools, as this isn't the dark ages or the United States of America.

The letter says that: "...without an explicit ban on teaching creationism, intelligent design, and other pseudoscientific theories as evidence-based, such teaching may begin to creep into the school curriculum, when it is vital children in Wales are not exposed to pseudoscientific doctrines masquerading as science," above the signatures of many of today's top media scientists, like Dr Helen Czerski, Richard Dawkins, and Professors Alice Roberts and Adam Rutherford.

Young-Earth creationist groups like Answers in Genesis believe the Earth is no more than 6,000 years old despite actual mountains of evidence to the contrary, and they've been playing the “alternative facts” card for years.

In lieu of conceding incontrovertible geological evidence, they sidestep it by saying, “Well, we just look at those facts differently.”

Nowhere is this more apparent than the Grand Canyon, which young-Earth creationist groups have long been enamored with.

A long geologic record (spanning almost 2 billion years, in total) is on display in the layers of the Grand Canyon thanks to the work of the Colorado River.

But many creationists instead assert that the canyon’s rocks—in addition to the spectacular erosion that reveals them—are actually the product of the Biblical “great flood” several thousand years ago.

Snelling wanted to collect rocks from structures in sedimentary formations known as “soft-sediment deformation”—basically, squiggly disturbances of the layering that occur long before the sediment solidifies into rock.

Pasta is so much more fun to eat when the Flying Spaghetti Monster helps out in the kitchen.

The fictional deity is the subject of an appropriately themed colander, letting you recreate the internet icon in real life as part of your dinner.

Not familiar with this spaghetti creature?

It and the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster were created to mock those who oppose teaching evolution in schools.

The Flying Spaghetti Monster was first mentioned in a satirical letter written by Bobby Henderson in 2005 to protest the Kansas State Board of Education decision to permit teaching intelligent design as an alternative to evolution in public school science classes.

Since then, the Flying Spaghetti Monster has become a rallying figure for those who oppose intelligent design and creationism replacing science in schools.

Debut adventure of tween occultist goes for $150,000

A first-edition copy of history's most influential takedown of creationism has sold for $564,500 at auction, the highest amount yet for the tome.

The handsome green leather-bound book – Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species, of course – was among the library of American racehorse breeder and philanthropist Paul Mellon, who died aged 91 in 1999.

The winning bid more than doubled the presale estimate of $120,000-$180,000 and Mellon's collection as a whole raked in $1.9m during the auction on 5 November.

Lumbosexual poster boy and biologist Darwin began to shape his evolutionary theory as a naturalist aboard the HMS Beagle, a Royal Navy vessel turned survey ship, from 1831-1836, stopping in at Brazil, the Falklands and, most famously, the Galapogos among many other locations.

He continued to collect data that supported the notion and had "a sketch of the conclusions" written up 20 years before his landmark work turned the Victorian worldview upside down in 1859.

Ask a three-year-old why they think it’s raining, and she may say “because the flowers are thirsty”.

Take teleology one step further, and you get Donald Trump, who thinks global warming is an invention of the Chinese to make US manufacturing non-competitive.

There is growing evidence that indulging in conspiracy theories predisposes people to reject scientific findings, from climate change to vaccinations, and AIDS.

Flowers supposedly produce delightful perfume in order to attract pollinators, and climate scientists supposedly invent a hoax known as climate change at the behest of the “world government” or George Soros.

In everyday life, assigning intentions often makes perfect sense.

If someone asks you why your daughter turned on the TV, it may be perfectly accurate and appropriate to reply with “because her favorite show is on now”.

The answer, disappointingly, is that most people in the US aren't getting any scientific information at all.

Oddly, however, the public is not impressed with its primary source, as fewer than 30 percent of those polled think that news outlets actually get the science right.

Being optimistic, that suggests that there are enough science news sources out there to ensure that people will stumble across it even if they're not looking for it.

The disappointing aspect here is that there's no relationship between how popular a source is and how people rate it for quality.

These numbers, however, go up considerably among the active science news consumers, more than 70 percent of whom think museums, documentaries, and science magazines get it right most of the time.

A third of the survey population also hears about science news from friends and family, though only 16 percent of those surveyed think their loved ones constitute a good source of accurate information.

Insta360 has definitely come a long way.

Starting out with a 360-degree accessory for iPhones, the company has moved up to offering the same ease-of-use and convenience to professionals in just two years.

The recently announced Insta360 Titan targeted professional studios and creators but you don’t need an expensive kit just for that.

The Insta360 ONE X upgrade last year brought everything you need in a professional but portable camera and can soon be used by Matterport users to create virtual tours that not only educate but can also sell real estate.

Matterport is one of the leading names when it comes to offering tools to create and experience virtual tours.

Companies like Apple and Google have partnered with the company to showcase various 360-degree camera and imaging technologies and now it’s Insta360’s turn to show what it’s got in the Insta360 ONE X.

Apple is said to be planning to bankroll the creation of original podcasts from third-parties that it will offer exclusively on its own streaming services, Bloomberg reports.

The report says that Apple’s plans to land podcast exclusives will help the company compete with similar offerings from streaming rivals including Spotify and Sticher, both of which are funding exclusive podcast content, and in some cases, wholly original shows to run on their own streaming audio offerings.

The report says that Apple execs have been reaching out to media companies that produce audio content to talk about the possibility of buying exclusive rights to some podcasts, albeit in a “preliminary” way, which suggests that this plan may be in the very early stages.

It seems unlikely, then, that we would see any kind of Apple exclusive original podcast content ahead of other media efforts soon to launch from the company, including its Apple TV+ subscription video service coming this fall.

Apple has recently made a number of improvements to its podcast product offerings, both on the consumer and the creator side, including more detailed analytics for podcasters, and a full-fledged standalone Podcasts app for its macOS computers, which is launching alongside macOS Catalina this fall.

Still, it’s largely been hands-off when it comes to content, aside from informally meeting with podcasters on occasion and sharing best practices.

For B2B businesses, purchasing large custom products can be a headache.

Consider a business in need of a new office space.

The company would need to work with dozens of different vendors and service providers to complete the process.

The company then needs to find an architect, decide on finishes, find a contractor and, finally, purchase office furniture.

In short, the business seeking the office space needs to complete a co-creation process and pull together multiple leaders internally to make a complex set of decisions involving price, legal and functionality considerations.

It requires a lot of long nights, face-to-face meetings, phone calls and more.

When the technical terms of cryptocurrency tapped my ears, I was amused that it's just a type of fiat paper currency.

Are you still in a chaotic mind about this geekspeak?

The first-ever cryptocurrency is Bitcoin and tops the market value still now.

Despite the controversial debates of cryptocurrency concepts, it has reached the pinnacle of success and many giant industries like Amazon, Shopify, Microsoft, Cupid and much more have incorporated crypto payments for their products & services.

If the hacker has to counterfeit the particular block, then he/she must break down the hash value of the particular block and pre-hash values of the previous blocks linked to the data block, which is impossible without the consent of community people.

A smart contract is the piece of code which is self-executing and the transaction happens once the specified condition is satisfied.

2020 could be called The Year Data Science Grew Up. Organizations of all kinds significantly ramped up their adoption of data-oriented applications and turned to data science to solve their problems—with varying degrees of success. In the process, data science was increasingly called upon to show its maturity and prove its real value, demonstrating that it actually worked in production.

The emergence of a deadly global pandemic threw a wrench into designs—not all of them good—that had grown over the course of years in ways that have become difficult to maintain, adjust, or improve upon today. COVID-19 required the rapid analysis and sharing of massive amounts of data. Predictive models were run and updated with a new urgency amid constantly changing conditions—with all the world judging their accuracy and integrity.
