These precious pooches may look cute, but don't underestimate them: They happen to be experts at getting big air and making serious waves. Last Sunday, armed with a surfboard, some courageous canines took to the ocean in Huntington Beach, California, to participate in the sixth annual Surf City Surf Dog competition. Show More Summary
Six months ago, scientists were excited to find gravitational waves in the cosmic microwave background that seemed to prove the universe itself inflated during the Big Bang. For me, the most beautiful video detailing the discovery wasn’t cosmic in scope; it involved a veteran physicist named Andrei...
The new wave duo will re-release their highest selling album this November.
A map of interstellar dust unveiled today from the obtained by the European Space Agency's Planck space observatory has substantially reduced the chances that a South Pole telescope (above) glimpsed gravitational waves from the Big Bang, as was claimed in...
Surfing on raceboards is a lot of fun and a great skill to practice if you want to get faster on downwind runs, it’s all about surfing the bumps. Surfing these big long boards also allows you to catch and surf waves that others can’t, which opens up all kinds of uncrowded spots and smaller [...]
(John Hinderaker) 2014 is shaping up as a pretty good year for the GOP, and I haven’t given up hope on the proverbial “wave.” But the conventional wisdom is that the opportunity for big gains is slipping away. I share that sense. To some extent, the cause is the Democrats’ overwhelming money advantage. Show More Summary

Two big wave surfers from La Jolla, California, and Hawaii, Clinton Edwards and Clifford Kapono, are spear heading the challenge to image the world's best surf spots. Show More Summary
Derek Jeter didn't want the night to end. The retiring captain gave New York one more win with a big hit, then took two trips out to shortstop, waving to the adoring crowd each time following his... To view the full story, click the title link.
Competition between mobile phone manufactures is fierce with handset companies using social media and other public platforms to call out their competitors. It's not surprising then to see a wave of tweets and comments from big name companies...Show More Summary
In response to Outraged?: When I first saw the story making waves, yesterday, I too wondered if it was much ado about - well - not a very big deal, perhaps spurred on by Obama Derangement Syndrome. It wouldn't be the first time the "outrageous outrage" machine kicked into high gear over something trivial - something I see on Twitter all the time. Show More Summary

In March, scientists working on the BICEP2 experiment, a microwave telescope based at the South Pole, announced that they had seen gravity waves from the early universe, created just after the Big Bang. Ever since the announcement, the cosmological community has been excitedly debating the...
Having finalised The Futurica Trilogy with my co-writer Jan Söderqvist five years ago, I thought I had pretty much said what could be said about the Internet revolution from a cyberphilosopher's perspective. Mission accomplished. However...Show More Summary
Earlier this year, researchers at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and the BICEP2 telescope in Antarctica were thought to have found evidence of gravitational waves produced during the first moments of the big bang. The discovery was...
When Bre Pettis, the co-founder of MakerBot, began his company in 2009, the mission was clear: make 3D printing accessible. Five years later, the company has sold tens of thousands of printers and joined forces with the industry stalwart Stratasys. Now that these creation machines are (relatively) financially feasible, how are we going to use them? Read more...
Gravitational waves that would've formed during the Big Bang's "inflation" were theorized in 1980, but earlier this year a team announced that they'd found proof of the waves' existence, which would be strong evidence in support of the Big Bang. Show More Summary
[This item has been revised and updated.] In March, scientists representing an experiment called BICEP2 announced at a news conference at Harvard that they had detected gravitational waves from a violent inflationary event at the dawn of time. Show More Summary
Earlier this year — and in a discovery that screamed Nobel Prize — Harvard physicists announced that they'd found evidence of gravitational waves in the early universe, potential proof that our universe began with a bang. The claim was duly criticized, but a new analysis may be the most damning yet. Read more...

Mayim Bialik’s blog on Kveller made news again this week when the Big Bang Theory actor came out against the phenomenally successful Disney film Frozen. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Bialik had already made waves with a critique of the sexualization of images in advertising, including a billboard that featured Ariana Grande.
