President Nicolas Maduro blamed "terrorists" for a new, near-nationwide blackout that gripped Venezuela Tuesday, two weeks after a similar outage caused deaths and chaos. In a statement on Twitter, Maduro said a deliberately set "large-scale fire" on Monday hit facilities around the Guri hydroelectric plant in the south of the country that supplies power to 80 percent of Venezuela's 30 million inhabitants. The first blackout, between March 7 and 14, resulted in more than a dozen hospital patients, including those needing dialysis or intensive care, dying, and desperate citizens turning to sewer outfalls to get water.

This website keeps track of every product and service that Google has ever killed

Tue, 03/26/2019 - 16:14

We're still a few months away from the halfway mark of 2019, and already Google has sent some pretty high-profile products to an early grave -- products that the company had high initial hopes for, like its Inbox email service and its failed Facebook killer Google+. But this, as we all know, is really par for the course when it comes to the search giant, which has tried so many experiments over the years with products, apps and services that didn't quite work out as planned that it's ended up building quite a crowded graveyard of failed ambitions.Maybe there's even a few of those that you loved and are still frustrated with Google for killing them.To keep track of it all, one developer created an open source list called "Killed by Google" that serves as a kind of running tally of all these efforts -- everything from Google Zeitgeist to Buzz -- that the company killed early.The list is simply a rundown of all those former Google properties, listed with a tombstone icon next to them and the years they existed. "Killed by Google is a Free and Open Source list of dead Google products, services, and devices," reads some boilerplate language at the bottom of the site, which continues: "It serves to be a tribute and memorial of beloved products and services killed by Google."The Twitter account associated with the list, @killedbygoogle, notes that it's the product of Minneapolis-area developer Cody Ogden. In a blog post explaining the list's creation, he writes that the early buzzy around the project both surprised him and served as a reminder of "how much we can bond with the technology that we introduce into our lives. We grow accustomed to the apps, services, and devices we use as a part of our routine. We come to know their characteristics, their quirks, and like a relationship, it deeply affects us, even for years after they are no longer with us."As proof, he then goes on to highlight some of the comments from a Reddit post about the "Killed by Google" list which shows how much passionate support many of the products had and still enjoy:

U.S. jury to determine liability, damages in Roundup cancer trial

Tue, 03/26/2019 - 15:32

A lawyer for a man who said his cancer was caused by Bayer AG's glyphosate-based weed killer Roundup on Tuesday urged U.S. jurors to "send a message" to the company by holding it liable and awarding millions in damages. The case is only the second of more than 11,200 Roundup lawsuits to go to trial in the United States as litigation setbacks and a prior jury verdict against the company have sent Bayer shares plunging. A responsible company would tell their customers if they knew it causes cancer," Aimee Wagstaff, a lawyer for plaintiff Edwin Hardeman, said during closing arguments on Tuesday.
