Juventus and Real Madrid are meeting again in the knock out stage of the Champions League in a rematch of last year's final. After eliminating Tottenham Hotspur in Round of 16 Juventus will try to take revenge for the 1-4 loss in Cardiff, but the european champions know how to survive after big matches. They proved it in the previous round by knocking out Paris Saint Germain!

The other great match of the quarterfinals is the english battle between Liverpool and Manchester City. The Citizens are on the top of Premier League table and look like favorites, but Liverpool has the european mental

The PlayStation 5 existence is for sure. It is probably in some form right now, waiting to hit the shelves anytime soon. But the question is when will it be released and what games will it support? In this article, I have gathered recent information and rumors about the console. Further, based on these concepts and ideas, I have speculated about the capabilities and possibilities of the coming PlayStation 5.

Since Saturday morning when The New York Times published Uma Thurman’s depiction of assault at the hands of Harvey Weinstein, the writer/director most closely associated with her biggest successes has been the one taking a turn in the barrel. Quentin Tarantino, who directed Thurman in Pulp Fiction and two installments of Kill Bill, has been getting hammered on social media. The article reported — and showed footage — of a disturbing car crash that Thurman endured in the last days of production on Kill Bill, and it also detailed that he personally spit on her in one scene and choked her in anot

Cretaceous amber has ponied up another spectacular find, and something rarely seen before: tiny arachnids, with mobile tails longer than their bodies.

The creatures were encased in tree resin roughly 100 million years ago, during the mid-Cretaceous, and the discovery shows that the extraordinary family of arachnids could have roamed our planet for at least 280 million years.

Doom, despair, and agony are upon us.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell by 666 points on Feb. 2. There must be something symbolic that the Dow just happened to fall by a number associated with evil. (Sure, the index technically fell by 665.75 points, but who wants to quibble over a quarter of a point?)
This decline was the worst one-day drop for the Dow since the financial crisis of 2008 -- and we all remember what happened then. So over the weekend, I decided to carefully review my investment portfolio to identify all of the stocks that I should sell if the market continues to fall. It

Neutron stars aren’t the twinkle-twinkle kind you typically see in the night sky. They’re stellar corpses, and incredibly dense sources of gravity, with perhaps 1.5 times the mass of the sun packed into an area less than a dozen miles across. Around 9,000 light years away from Earth, one neutron stars seems to have befriended a red dwarf. And scientists observed the new relationship beginning in a flash of energy.

An asteroid larger than any skyscraper yet built is hurtling toward Earth, the Daily Mail informs. If it hits on February 4, the paper continues, scientists predict a decade of cold and darkness, skies choked with soot, and misery across the planet

Between these paragraphs, the Mail inserts occasional reminders that asteroid 2002 AJ129 will not hit Earth, according to NASA.

In fact it is predicted to get no closer than 2.6 million miles (4.2 million km) from Earth, despite NASA's scary-sounding classification of the rock as "potentially hazardous" - a term which the Mail has paired with

Thirty years after nations banded together to phase out chemicals that destroy stratospheric ozone, the gaping hole in Earth’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation shield above Antarctica is shrinking. But new findings suggest that at midlatitudes, where most people live, the ozone layer in the lower stratosphere is growing more tenuous—for reasons that scientists are struggling to fathom.

Several recent studies, including one published last month in Geophysical Research Letters, point to a robust recovery of stratospheric ozone concentrations over Antarctica—the long-awaited payoff after the Montrea

In order to sap nutrients and water from other plants, dodder silences defensive genes in its hosts.

This cross-species gene regulation, which includes genes that contribute to the host plant’s defense against parasites, has never before been seen from a parasitic plant.

Understanding this system could provide researchers with a method to engineer plants to be resistant to the parasite. Dodder causes major damage to crops in the US and worldwide every year.

The crypto credit card crackdown of 2018 is here.

Purchasing cryptocurrencies with a credit card is about to get significantly harder. Earlier today, the UK’s Lloyds Banking Group announced that it would prevent customers from purchasing cryptocurrencies with its credit cards.
Lloyds Banking Group is easily of the largest retail banks in the UK, and dominates a massive swathe of Britain’s retail banking market. In addition to the eponymous Lloyds Bank, it also owns Halifax, Bank of Scotland, and MBNA.

The ban solely relates to credit card transactions. Crypto purchases with Lloyds-issue

Thermoelectric materials can use thermal differences to generate electricity. Now there is an inexpensive and environmentally friendly way of producing them with the simplest tools: a pencil, photocopy paper, and conductive paint. These are sufficient to convert a temperature difference into electricity via the thermoelectric effect, which has now been demonstrated by a team at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin.

Ancient statues weren't white marble, but “a riot of colour and glitzy decoration." It shows that we've imagined the ancient world all wrong, writes Natalie Haynes.

When the Victorian painter Lawrence Alma-Tadema first showed his work, Phidias Showing the Frieze of the Parthenon to his Friends, there must have been a pleasing circularity in play: a painter proudly revealing his new painting of a sculptor proudly revealing his new sculpture. It was 1868, and to the modern viewer the painting looks inoffensive enough. Phidias, the bearded sculptor, stands in front of the Parthenon Frieze, who

se characters – human and equine alike – Alma-Tadema would have been able to study in detail in the British Museum. Luminaries of 5th Century Athens admire the sculptor’s extraordinary work: the draperies, the incredible depth (sometimes four horses gallop beside one another in just an inch or two of marble). The viewers might also be remarking upon the dark, beautiful colours that bring the sculpture to life.
