Mollie King ‘relieved’ over dyslexia diagnosis

Today I had the honour of speaking in Parliament about my experience of living with dyslexia. It was so interesting hearing other people’s stories too and hearing the similarities to my own. When I was diagnosed with dyslexia at the age of 10, it came as a huge relief. I'd been feeling like I was stupid and somehow worse than my classmates, and I didn't understand why. But with the diagnosis, everything clicked into place. I knew I wasn't worse than everyone else – I was just different. The prospect of reading out loud in class filled me with my dread. It got to the stage where I was so panicked that I’d make up an excuse to leave the …

Study Reveals The Most Dangerous Place To Sit In A Car

Cars are one of the riskiest ways to travel; although nowhere near as deadly as the motorbike, the trusty old automobile is notably more dangerous than ferries, trains, buses, and flying. However, while much of the attention in terms of car safety has been put on the driver, it looks like other passengers could be more at risk. New research by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has looked into the safety of backseat passengers in car crashes. Their findings showed that passengers in the back seats might actually be more at risk of injury or death than those riding up front in certain scenarios. This might sound surprising, but there’s an interesting explanation for it. The IIHC argues that car manufacturers have gone to …

Report Predicts 140 Million Climate Refugees By 2050 Unless Concrete Action Is Taken

A worst-case scenario projection by the World Bank suggests that over the next three decades, climate change could force more than 143 million people to seek refuge in three of the world’s most densely populated areas, setting the grounds for a “human crisis”. At this stage, the number is just a projection based on models considering demographic, socioeconomic, and climate impact data. However, it could become a reality without “concrete climate and development action”, according to the 2018 report Groundswell: Preparing for Internal Climate Migration. Specifically, sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, and South Asia may see tens of millions of people forced to move as many regions become uninhabitable due to growing climate-related issues like water scarcity, crop failure, sea-level rise, and storm surges. …

Tinder deleted George Zimmerman’s profile and banned him from the app in the name of public safety.

Images via Creative Loafing/screenshots from Tinder Believe it or not, there are worse things than unsolicited sexual harassment on dating apps. George Zimmerman was acquitted of shooting and killing an unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in 2012. Since then, he’s been keeping a low profile, but apparently that doesn’t extend to his dating profile. Zimmerman was recently banned from Tinder after he created a profile on the app under a fake name.

We Might Have Just Detected A Marsquake For The First Time Ever

On April 6, NASA’s InSight lander recorded a faint tremor that appeared to originate from the interior of Mars. If this is confirmed, it would be the first-ever “Marsquake” recorded on the Red Planet. Scientists are still examining the signals so they can be absolutely certain of the tremor’s origin. The signal was recorded by the lander’s Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure (SEIS) and while it is not powerful enough to help researchers probe the inside of the Red Planet, it shows that Mars is still active. SEIS has the chance to learn a lot about what lies beneath the lander. “InSight’s first readings carry on the science that began with NASA’s Apollo missions,” InSight Principal Investigator Bruce Banerdt of NASA’s …
