WaPo concedes in "New climate change calculations could buy the Earth some time — if they’re right."Some experts have recalculated and say we have 20 years instead of 3 in the "carbon budget" (that is, how long it will take, at the current rate of emissions, to warm the earth to 2.7°F beyond what it was in the late 19th century — the "pre-industrial" time).
President Trump, by his second deal in as many weeks with Democratic leaders, has upended the political calculations of both of their parties: Many Republicans are left fuming of his betrayal, while some Democrats have begun warning party leaders against getting too cozy with a president they vow...
Calculations show that quantum annealing—the quantum computing method used in a commercially available device—is hampered by thermal effects. [Physics] Published Thu Sep 14, 2017
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA calculated the rainfall left in the wake of now post-tropical cyclone Irma as it moved through the Caribbean Sea to landfall in Florida and then captured a night-time look at the storm as it moved over Georgia.
Video. The clever software that stabilises bumpy video and turns it into smooth as silk footage works by tracking various targets in a clip so it can calculate the camera's erratic movements. Here's what happens when you instead tell it to stabilise footage by tracking just a single male nipple. More »

Although we’re in the US this week to drive the maniacal new 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, the company has yet to reveal Australian pricing. By our calculations, though, the big beast will likely start with a price tag in the neighbourhood of $140,000. What we do know for sure is that the Trackhawk will […]
Plotting how often stars stray into the Oort cloud allows astronomers to asses the risk of all life being wiped out by a cosmic cataclysm The collision of a giant comet with the Earth is one of the most violent and cataclysmic events that could befall our planet. Show More Summary
Often when we make a decision, we calculate its "expected value," by multiplying the value of something (how much we want or need it) with the probability that we might be able to obtain it, a concept first introduced by 17th-century...Show More Summary
There are many calculations at play in our minds when we make a decision, whether we are aware of them or not. Seventeenth-century mathematician Blaise Pascal first introduced the idea of expected value, which is reached by multiplying the value of something (how much it's wanted or needed) with the probability that we might be able to obtain it.
