‘The Walking Dead’ will finally cross over with ‘Fear,’ says Robert Kirkman

TwitterFacebook

Ever since The Walking Dead got its spinoff (aka prequel) series, Fear the Walking Dead, fans and reporters alike have been badgering the producers behind the two shows about the possibility of a crossover — and apparently said badgering has finally paid off.

“There are two Walking Dead shows, I’m not gonna name them… There is one character that is going to go from one show, that I will not name… and appear in the other show, which I will not name,” series creator Robert Kirkman revealed at the show’s New York Comic Con panel. “So what does that mean, because these timelines, how does that work? Are we going to see an interesting backstory of a Walking Dead character showing up in Fear the Walking Dead, or are we going to see a Fear the Walking Dead character show up in The Walking Dead, and see a future version of a character? What’s gonna happen? Is it going to be something completely different than that? Who knows?” Read more…

Google got permission to float its internet-beaming balloons over Puerto Rico

TwitterFacebook

The FCC has given Google permission to deploy its Project Loon balloons over Puerto Rico. 

Previously, the helium balloons were able to provide LTE coverage to Peru after extreme flooding. But in that case, Google had already partnered with a telecom provider on the ground, which it depended on to beam the signal to the balloons, for disaster relief.

In Puerto Rico, Google’s innovation lab, X, is starting from scratch. It’s unclear if Puerto Rico’s stressed telecom companies even have the resources to partner with Google on this endeavor.

Woman Gives Birth In Japan, Shows What Food She Was Fed In The Hospital

If there’s one thing that seems to have a horrible reputation no matter where you go, it’s hospital food; bland, colorless, vomit-inducing meals that make the reason you’re there seem bearable in comparison. A woman who recently gave birth in Japan, however, has just shared 12 of the meals she was served during her stay in the maternity ward, and they look tastier than half of the restaurants we’ve ever visited.

Grandma Accidentally Buys Inappropriate Book For 6-Year-Old, And Internet Is Dying From Laughter

At some point in our lives, all of us were probably taught to not judge a book by its cover. This story is a hilarious example why. Everything started when one grandma was shopping in Barnes & Noble and spotted a book called “If Animals Could Talk.” She immediately thought that the colorful print was something her 6-year-old granddaughter Emmersyn – who was already an “avid reader” – would love.

This connected tabletop gadget can measure the calories on your plate in 10 seconds flat

TwitterFacebook

Counting calories from an app can be pretty inaccurate, so this kitchen gadget is set to be a godsend for dieters.

All you have to do is pop a plate of food into the microwave-sized device, press a button on the lid, and 10 seconds later you’ll get an overall calorie count of your meal. Impressively, it’s also able to deliver a breakdown of your meal into carbs, fat and protein — great for people watching their macros. Read more…

Discovery of World War II shipwreck ends a 74-year mystery

TwitterFacebook

For 74 years, the merchant ship SS Macumba lay lost beneath the depths of the Arafura Sea, off the coast of Australia’s Northern Territory.

It was attacked back in August 1943 by two Japanese aircraft, who scored a direct hit on the ship’s engine room. Three seamen were killed, and survivors were taken aboard an escort. 

The ship was left to sink, and its whereabouts remained unknown for decades.

Solar power beat all other energy sources in 2016, but Trump still wants more coal

TwitterFacebook

Listening to the Trump administration advocate for reviving coal, one might get the impression that a fossil fuel resurgence is taking place in the U.S. and abroad. 

However, the global statistics tell a far different story about where the world is getting its energy, with unprecedented thresholds crossed by renewable energy technologies like solar and wind power. 

A major new report released Wednesday morning shows that, for the first time ever, 2016 saw solar photovoltaics, or solar PV, take the lead for the fastest electricity capacity growth when compared to any other fuel, beating the net growth in coal. Read more…

Stephen Colbert on gun control after Las Vegas: ‘Doing nothing is cowardice’

TwitterFacebook

On Monday night, Stephen Colbert opened The Late Show as much of his television compatriots did by addressing the shooting massacre in Las Vegas.

And like his fellow talk show hosts, Colbert also called for something, anything to be done on gun control.

“Terrible things happen in the world. Sometimes like today, where we feel things have risen to a new level. But we cannot accept that as the new normal,” he said.

Colbert also challenged Trump to prove himself as a president “who doesn’t care about how things have always been done in Washington D.C.” Read more…
