Please bring 'The Office' back and have Michael Scott do a TED Talk - 50分前  Mashable

It's been nearly four years since The Office ended, and we're still not over it. We'll never be over it. How are we supposed to forget the legendary pranks Jim played on Dwight? How can we eat chili without pausing for a brief moment of silence for Kevin? How is it possible that we'll ever forget the character of Michael Scott? Answer: It's not possible. It's not possible for us superfans, and it's also not possible for the genius writers who gave us The Office.

'Video referees' to hopefully eliminate bad calls and dives at the next World Cup - 1時間前  Mashable

FIFA is finally starting to embrace technology. The organization just announced that it wants video assistant referees (VARs) to be used at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The video refs are, in essence, a limited form of instant replay, issuing rulings from their video monitor that the on-the-field refs might have missed. "In 2017, when everyone in the stadium or at home can see within seconds if the referee made a mistake, we can't have a situation where the only one who can't see it is the referee," said FIFA President Gianni Infantino SEE ALSO: Esports will be at the 2022 Asian Games —...more

This view finally makes me want to risk my life to fly to space - 1時間前  Mashable

I know that this is a weird thing for a space reporter to admit publicly, but here's the truth: I've never had any desire to travel to space.  Let's just say that I've seen one too many rockets explode to make me comfortable with flying up to space. SEE ALSO: Please leave me alone while I stare at this photo of Jupiter But I have to say, photos like this one, of an uncrewed Cygnus spacecraft approaching the International Space Station on April 22, make me rethink my hard-line stance against space travel.  It's not that this picture is so much more fantastic than other photos taken fr...more

Photographer David Finlay was flying his drone and checking out the scenery at a Kiama beach in Australia  on Monday — as you do — when he noticed something circling below a group of surfers hanging out in the water.  Cue Jaws music.

'Forza' meets Hot Wheels: Race on the bright-orange tracks of childhood - 1時間前  Mashable

Forza Horizon 3 and Hot Wheels are two things that seem like they'd never ever collide. But they are colliding, and the result looks amazing.

Sobering visualizations reveal how sea level rise could transform cities in your lifetime - 3時間前  Mashable

Until recently, it seemed that we would be able to manage global warming-induced sea level rise through the end of the century. It would be problematic, of course, but manageable, particularly in industrialized nations like the U.S. However, troubling indications from the Greenland and Antarctic Ice Sheets show that melting is taking place faster than previously thought and that entire glaciers — if not portions of the ice sheets themselves — are destabilizing. This has scientists increasingly worried that the consensus sea level rise estimates are too conservative. With sea level ...more
