              The island castle of Trakai


              Our homepage castle might look like something out of a fairy tale but it can be found in one of the larger islands of Lake Galvé in the historic Lithuanian city of Trakai. Construction on this fortress was started in the 14th century by the Grand Duke of Lithuania and completed years later by his son. It served as a strategic and bustling centre of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, a former European state. Like much architecture from so long ago, the castle was damaged and fell into disrepair, only to be reconstructed and reopened as a museum. These days it’s known as one of Europe’s most striking medieval castles.

            • Could this new battery slash the cost of an electric car?
              Automakers around the world are investing tens of billions of dollars to electrify their line-ups, but there are still a number of obstacles limiting mainstream acceptance — such as range and cost.
              But Phoenix-based Nikola Motors may have found what its CEO describes as the “Holy Grail of batteries,” an alternative to today’s lithium-ion technology that could double the distance a battery-electric vehicle can travel between charges, while cutting battery costs in half.
              “We are not talking about small improvements; we are talking about doubling the range of BEVs and hydrogen-electric vehicles around the world,” said Trevor Milton, founder and chief executive of Nikola.
              Nikola, a start-up that has focused on hydrogen and battery-powered heavy-duty trucks, isn’t offering many details about the new technology and, considering that other promised breakthroughs have failed to prove production ready, there are plenty of skeptics. Even if it does pan out, tech consultancy ABI Research warns it would likely take several years, at the soonest, to begin manufacturing.
              What Nikola has revealed is that it plans to acquire an unnamed battery start-up that created the new technology. It says it will provide more information once that deal is completed early in 2020.
              The company has offered some hints as to how the new technology works, suggesting it relies on modifications to current lithium-ion batteries, rather than completely replacing them entirely. It appears the key to the new battery is removing the binder material and electric current collectors used in today’s lithium-ion cells. That would reduce not only size and weight, Milton claimed, but also make the new batteries “more conductive,” translating into faster charging times.

            • Japan vows to improve border checks, bail after Ghosn flight


              Japan's justice minister vowed Monday to strengthen border departure checks and review bail conditions after Nissan's former chairman, Carlos Ghosn, fled the country.

              Masako Mori told reporters at a news conference the ministry has already acted to prevent a recurrence but declined to give details.
              She was asked about reports that Ghosn had hidden in a box and that baggage checks at a regional airport might have been insufficient.
              Ghosn skipped bail while awaiting trial on various financial misconduct allegations and later said from Lebanon that he did it to escape injustice.
              Mori declined to say who might be held responsible for such a high-profile flight, stressing it was still under investigation.
              She said Ghosn left illegally, denouncing it as an “unjustifiable" crime.
              “Japan’s justice system allows investigating the facts while it ensures the individual basic human rights at the same time," Mori told reporters at the ministry.
              “It is set with appropriate procedures and it is operated appropriately."
              But she acknowledged the case was being looked at under an ongoing review of the nation's judicial system, including introducing electronic tethers to monitor those out on bail.
              “We are aware of the criticisms,” Mori said, referring to human rights advocates' descriptions of Japan's legal system as “hostage justice.”
              Ghosn and others say Japan's system takes too long and is inhumane. Ghosn was banned from meeting with his wife while out on bail. Preparing for his trial has taken about a year, and a date has not been set. Ghosn was detained, twice, for a total of 130 days before he was released on bail a second time.

            • Australia fires kill half a billion animals


              Nearly half a billion animals in Australia’s New South Wales state have been killed by raging wildfires in the last couple months, and the devastating death toll is expected to rise.

              Roughly 480 million mammals, birds and reptiles have been affected since bushfires started in September, according to ecologists from the University of Sydney, who add that the actual number is likely much higher.

            • Mature dating apps are coming of age
              Is your new year's resolution to find true love? If so, you may well be considering a dating app for your phone. Thanks to trailblazers like Tinder, online dating has gone mainstream. And mature daters want in on the action too.

              Lorna is 62 and lives in Edinburgh where she works as a PA. She is a divorcee with children and grandchildren and is still looking for love.
              "You come home from work, you want to be talking to someone about your day, it's good for your mental health," she explains. "It's the reason why I'm still dating at my age."
              But it becomes harder to meet potential partners as you get older, she says. "For women of my generation you can't just walk into a pub by yourself, because that sends a certain message."
              She became an early adopter of dating apps like Tinder, drawn to the way you can build up a rapport privately through messaging, before committing to meet in person.
              It was exciting rather than frightening, publishing her profile for the first time, she remembers.
              She has met some lovely people, but the experience also left her feeling uncomfortable.
              "I was often approached by people much younger than me, people that are the age of my children. I found that creepy and unsettling. I didn't even like the thought that they've looked at my profile."
              So the idea of a dating app that was age-restricted appealed to her. She tried signing up to one called Lumen, which is for over-50s. It's just one player in a growing market for mature daters.

            • Axon


              Axon, the manufacturer of Taser stun guns and body camera systems for police departments, has been the target of FTC scrutiny since 2018, when the regulator requested information from the Arizona-based company about its acquisition of Vievu.

              Vievu was a smaller player in the market for body cameras and online storage and management of the footage they generate.

              In the complaint filed on Friday in U.S. District Court in Arizona, Axon said it complied with regulators’ requests for 18 months at a cost of $1.5 million in legal fees.

            • Oil prices jump


              Oil prices jump after top Iranian general killed by US: Analysts warn the move could escalate tensions in the region and affect global oil production.

              Oil prices have risen sharply after the killing of a top Iranian general in Iraq.
              Analysts warned the action could escalate tensions in the region and affect global oil production.
              The price of Brent crude jumped by more than 4% to hit $69.50 a barrel at one point, the highest since mid-September.
              It came after General Qasem Soleimani was killed in a US drone strike at Baghdad airport, which the Pentagon described as "defensive action".
              The price spike pushed oil stocks on the London stock exchange higher, with BP up 1.5% and Royal Dutch Shell 1.4% higher.

            • Celebrities who've made millions outside of Hollywood.


              Celebrities can get paid a lot of money. And while it's easy to buy a couple of extra yachts or a crystal-studded bathtub, the smartest ones know when to invest.

              Frequently, they'll put resources into a business they definitely know. Brad Pitt established Plan B preparations, which created the Oscar-winning "12 Years a Slave" and "Evening glow." But they can likewise put resources into random organizations and utilize their distinction to get exposure and open entryways in the business.

              At times, the ventures are a monstrous disappointment, as Ja Rule's Fyre Festival. Different occasions, they can be gigantic triumphs, similar to the ventures on this rundown.

              Rihanna's Fenty Beauty brand is one case of things working out in a good way. Propelled only two years prior, it's presently a juggernaut in the beauty care products industry and moved Rihanna into being the wealthiest female artist alive, as indicated by Forbes.

              Here are the big names who've profited outside of their standard profession.

              They worked with a distiller to come up with a tequila they loved. After going through about "1,000 bottles a year" between the two and their friends for about five years, they decided to take it public. And in 2013, Casamigos Tequila was born.
              The brand seems to be a success. In the span of a few years, it was well-reviewed by liquor-focused blogs, been promoted by Oprah, and has had expensive advertising campaigns.
              In June of 2017, Clooney and Gerber cashed in on their success, selling Casamigos Tequila for up to $1 billion to Diageo, a British liquor company.

She's raised $20 million in venture capital funding since she began Goop as simply a personal newsletter in 2008, according to CNBC.
              It's not clear, though, if Goop is profitable yet. In 2014, leaked documents seemed to show that the company was $1.2 million in debt. But it's e-commerce business seems to be growing steadily, according to Racked

            • Japanese billionaire seeks 'life partner' for Moon voyage 
              Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa is looking for a female "life partner" to accompany him on Space X's maiden tourist voyage to the Moon.


              The fashion mogul, 44, is set to be the first civilian passenger to fly around the moon on the Starship rocket.
              Planned for 2023, the mission will be the first lunar journey by humans since 1972.
              In an online appeal, Mr Maezawa says he wants to share the experience with a "special" woman.
              The entrepreneur, who recently split up from actress girlfriend Ayame Goriki, 27, has asked women to apply for a "planned match-making event" on his website.

              "As feelings of loneliness and emptiness slowly begin to surge upon me, there's one thing that I think about: Continuing to love one woman," Mr Maezawa wrote on the website

            • Twitter to test 'block all replies' function 


              "We want to help people feel safe participating in the conversation on Twitter," the company said.
              The move comes as social media companies are under increasing pressure to address so-called "cyber-bullying".
              The firm has already launched a feature which allows its users to hide replies to their tweets.
              Twitter unveiled details of the experiment during a presentation at the annual Consumer Electronics Show, in Las Vegas.
              The new features, to be tested early this year, will allow users to select four different settings for replies:

              • Global - allow anyone to respond
              • Group - allow replies from people the user follows, or mentioned
              • Panel - allow replies from people mentioned
              • Statement - not allow any replies

              Social media companies are facing intense scrutiny over how they are dealing with harassment - which has led to firms and governments introducing measures to tackle the issue

            • CES chief defends invite for Ivanka Trump


              A decision to offer the US president's daughter one of the show's "keynote" sessions has caused controversy.

              Critics have said other women with more expertise have failed to be granted lower-profile slots at the trade show.

              But Gary Shapiro told the BBC that he did not regret the decision.
              "There's a lot of focus on jobs of the future, and certainly the keynote that I'll be doing with Ivanka Trump will be focusing on... how industry is working with government on this very important issue," he said.
              He will interview Ms Trump - who serves as a jobs creation adviser to the president - when she appears on stage on Tuesday 7 January.

              He declined, however, to say if her appearance had been his organisation's idea or if the White House had requested the address.

              'Upset' and 'insulted'

              The US Consumer Technology Association (CTA) confirmed Ms Trump would headline a discussion about "the path to the future of work" in a press release shortly before Christmas.
              Over the following days hundreds of people tweeted objections to the announcement, often using the hashtag #BoycottCES.

            • sloth


              We hate to break it to you, but the affable grin on this pale-throated sloth is probably not evidence of its laid-back lifestyle. Our adorable tree hugger looks content thanks to its facial mask and the natural shape of its mouth. Spotting one of these slow-moving solitary animals takes a little skill. The thick outer layer of a sloth's coat is an ideal place for green algae to grow, forming a natural camouflage in the canopy of tropical forests here in northern South America.

              If you do spot a pale-throated sloth, it is likely it will be enjoying a simple meal of leaves, tree limbs and buds. Because sloths don't have incisors, they spend most of their waking hours smacking their lips together to 'chew' their food. This would drive most animals to starvation (if not culinary madness), but the sloth's metabolism is so slow that it has evolved to survive on less food.

              Let's take a cue from the sloth and slow down our own hectic lives during International Sloth Day on 20 October. Who knows, we might find smiles creeping across our own faces.

                Mesoamerican Reef


                If we could dip down below those happy little clouds, we’d be on the bright blue waters of the Caribbean. And if we could dip down further below the surf, we’d be greeted by the Mesoamerican Reef, the second largest barrier reef on Earth (after the Great Barrier Reef). This Caribbean reef system covers 620 miles of the seabed and is home to one of the world’s largest manatee populations and a fair amount of the world’s largest fish: the whale shark.
