Tablets with HALF the memory you expect: Investigation reveals devices are filled with so much software the room for your files is reduced
UK Watchdog Which? claims the cheaper the tablet, the bigger the storage problem. A study carried out by the body found that the devices are not offering users the memory they expected. —> Read More
Bei Bei is brave, but he is not that brave.
The adorable 5-month-old giant panda cub climbed a tree inside his enclosure at the Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington, D.C., on Monday. He made it several feet off the ground, but soon appeared to lose confidence when coming down, and needed a helping hand from his mom Mei Xiang.
The zoo posted footage of the tender moment between the mother and cub on Facebook, and now it’s going viral.
The incident was a big moment for little Bei Bei, who ventured outside for the first time last week. Until now, he’s been more known for his frequent naps.

Last month Bei Bei fell asleep during his official public debut. In December, he snoozed through his unveiling to the media. And he hardly kept his eyes open during a medical checkup.
But now he’s becoming more active.
Bei Bei’s diet is also gradually switching to more solid foods, like bamboo and sweet potatoes, although he’ll continue nursing from his mom for the next year.
#BeiBei is eating solids! He will occasionally eat bamboo leaves, and he’s developed a taste for sweet potato. Even though he’s eating new things, he’ll continue to nurse from Mei Xiang for about one more year. #PandaStory #WeSaveSpecies

Vitrified metals, or metallic glasses, are at the frontier of materials science research. But much about them remains poorly understood. A team is trying to figure out the rules that govern metallic glass’s creation. They are doing this by looking at metallic glasses under extreme pressures. High-pressure research can be used to probe structure on an atomic level and understand a material’s state of order or disorder. —> Read More
North American researchers have identified drugs that showed promising perspectives in treating cancers, according to a recent study published in Cancer Research. These drugs are normally used to treat other diseases, such as heart failure, cardiac arrhythmia, and infections. —> Read More
