Some UK ministers want Hammond as caretaker PM: Sunday Times

Some leading members of Britain's ruling Conservative Party want finance minister Philip Hammond to become prime minister, replacing Theresa May and steering the country through the Brexit process, the Sunday Times reported. May, prime minister for less than a year, has been badly damaged by her failure to win a parliamentary majority in a June 8 election and is still working to persuade a small northern Irish party to support her Conservatives in government. Citing some members of May's top team, or cabinet, the Sunday Times said Hammond should be appointed as a caretaker prime minister to see the country through until 2019 when it officially leaves the European Union.

Tesla is interested in constructing a Gigafactory in China

With Tesla's Gigafactory in Las Vegas already producing lithium-ion batteries for the upcoming Model 3, there are reports that Tesla is already taking concrete steps to develop yet another Gigafactory in China. Hardly a surprise, Tesla CEO Elon Musk  recently said during a TED Talk presentation that the company would ideally like to construct as many as four Gigafactories all across the globe. "I will announce locations for between two and four Gigafactories later this year," Musk said on stage, "probably four." While nothing is set in stone just yet, it's widely believed that Tesla is eyeing another location in the United States along with a location in Europe and...

The young prince named heir to Saudi Arabia's throne has built a reputation as a bold reformer intent on weaning the kingdom off oil and driving a far more aggressive foreign policy to counter the influence of arch-rival Iran. Mohammed bin Salman, 31, was appointed crown prince by his father King Salman on Wednesday, replacing his cousin who is 26 years his senior. If Mohammed bin Salman becomes king in his 30s, he would be the youngest monarch of the modern state.

Sneaky cat pretends to be human to avoid being seen by dog
Sneaky cat pretends to be human to avoid being seen by dog

The best thing to do when in close contact with someone you don't want to talk to is to blend in with your surroundings. Laugh along with a group of strangers, hide behind a fake plant, do literally anything to make yourself invisible.  In this video uploaded to Youtube by user Binshattan145, one cat wants absolutely nothing to do with a passing dog. After the cat notices the dog from the peripherals of its nervous side-eye, it acts fast. The only thing this stealth feline can think to do to avoid the dog and blend in with its environment is casually clap along to a song sung by a nearby group of humans.  It's safe. The scary dog is gone. The cat can breathe a sigh of relief....

Mosul's Old City threatened as showdown looms

Mosul's Old City, where Iraqi forces are closing in on the Islamic State group's final urban refuge in Iraq, is an ancient maze of narrow alleys. At its heart lies the emblematic Al-Nuri mosque, where jihadist supremo Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared a caliphate in June 2014 after his forces seized Iraq's second city along with swathes of territory extending into neighbouring Syria.

Warmbier experienced extensive tissue loss in all regions of the brain, doctors said, but he showed no signs of physical trauma and medical tests offered no conclusive evidence as to the cause of his neurological injuries.

The new iPad Pro is almost as powerful as the MacBook Pro

Apple's newest iPad Pros are out in stores, which means that some users out there are already testing them out. Benchmarks are, naturally, part of the process, and they already seem to confirm something we already knew: the 2017 iPad Pro generation is nearly as powerful as the brand-new MacBook Pro. Can the iPad Pro replace the MacBook Pro? No, we're not quite there yet. Apple's best tablet can't do all the things Apple's best laptop does. Or better said, iOS is still trailing behind macOS at satisfying some of the Pro needs - though iOS 11 brings a lot of exciting features to the iPad. But synthetic benchmark tests tell an interesting story. Apple's custom mobile CPU and GPU used in...

One hundred and fourteen people were detained in Detroit alone, most of whom are members of Iraq's Chaldean minority. Iraqis are being swept up in immigration raids across the US and targeted for deportation by the Trump administration, in a crackdown attorneys and advocates described as a "death sentence" for members of Iraq's Christian minority.

The Tesla Model 3 interior looks incredible in this new render
The Tesla Model 3 interior looks incredible in this new render

One of the more longstanding questions surrounding Tesla's Model 3 involves the car's interior design. When Elon Musk initially unveiled the Model 3 last year, the interior we saw was rather bland, to say the least. What's more, Tesla's highly anticipated mass market EV lacked a traditional instrument cluster with pertinent information such as speed and range. As a result, speculation that Tesla would either incorporate a digital dashboard or a HUD of some sort quickly began to spread. As it turns out, the Model 3 interior we saw last year won't be changing much at all. Just a few months ago, Musk all but confirmed that the Model 3 will not include a futuristic instrument cluster. As...

Polish PM under fire for remarks at Auschwitz

Poland's prime minister came under heavy fire Wednesday for appearing to defend her rightwing government's anti-migrant policy during a memorial service at the former Auschwitz-Birkenau Nazi German death camp. Beata Szydlo said that "in our troubled times, Auschwitz is a great lesson that everything must be done to defend the safety and the lives of citizens" at ceremonies marking the 77th anniversary of the Nazis' first transport of Polish prisoners to the camp. Polish government spokesman Rafal Bochenek said Tuesday that the refugee relocation plan posed a security "threat" to EU members, echoing earlier fiery rhetoric by Szydlo linking refugees and migrants with terror attacks in...

At least 12 people perished on Wednesday after a massive inferno tore through a London apartment block, with witnesses reporting terrified residents had leapt from the tower and dropped their children in a desperate bid for survival.

US troops are on the ground helping local soldiers battle Islamist militants in a Philippine city, a Filipino military spokesman said Wednesday, giving the most detailed account of their role.
