    Twitter is testing a new in-app payment feature that will allow users pay their favorite tweeters – but some critics are calling the social media platform the new ‘Only Fans’ and says it could lead to people sharing nudes instead of tweets. Called Tip Jar, the new feature announced on Friday, allows users to send money directly to their favorite accounts via Venmo, PayPal and other payment services, which is a similar model for the adult-only subscription platform.

    China released a greater volume of greenhouse gases into Earth’s atmosphere in 2019 than all of the world’s developed nations put together, a study has found. The eastern superpower has tripled its emission levels since the 1990s, crossing the 14 gigatons threshold for the first time ever in 2019. Emission estimates for 190 nations across the globe were calculated by experts from research firm Rhodium Group in tandem with Breakthrough Energy. The analysis considered six greenhouse gases — carbon dioxide,…

    Volcanos on Mars could still be active, researchers claim, saying that it could mean life on the Red Planet was active within the past 30,000 years. University of Arizona’s Lunar and Planetary Laboratory and the Planetary Science Institute discovered unknown volcanic deposits in satellite images of the planet. The team said these images showed evidence of eruptions in the past 50,000 years, in the Elysium Planitia region, about 1,000 miles from the NASA InSight lander. Most volcanism on the Red…

    In a step towards cutting down on landfill waste, every household in England will receive weekly food waste collections by 2023, the UK government said today. Under proposals unveiled by ministers, every English household will receive weekly food waste collections, which will help stop the build-up of smelly waste that attracts flies and pests. The development will bring an end to the ‘postcode lottery’ – where different councils have their own rules on how frequently waste is collected. ‘Householders want…

    The world has seen a number of videos showing NASA’s Ingenuity flying above the surface of Mars, but now, for the first time, we can hear the humming of its tiny rotors spinning. The low hum from blades spinning at more than 2,500 revolutions per minute is barely audible and almost sounds like a low-pitched, far-away mosquito. The American space agency released the ‘surprising’ audio captured from its Perseverance rover, which was parked 262 feet from the helicopter as it…

    A skeleton belonging to a five-year-old girl was found under the floor of the chapel in the Real Alcázar in Spain. Archaeologists say the remains date to the 1300s, and are of a fair-haired girl who was likely nobility. They believe she was originally buried in a different location, but moved to a spot next to the main altar of the Virgen de la Antigua in Seville in the 1930s. The sarcophagus was found just eight inches under the floor…

    ‘Like father, like son’ is a expression from the 1300s that suggests the child mimics behaviors of the parent, but a new study finds the saying is not true when it comes to toxic masculinity. A team at Federation University in Victoria investigated what causes a man to embrace toxic masculinity and found that a man’s relationships with his father and mother were not particularly relevant. The biggest indicator was the nature of an individual’s friendships—the fewer they had, the…

    Mexico City is sinking at an ‘unstoppable’ with some parts decompressing up to 20 inches a year over the past decades. A new report highlights centuries of pumping water from the aquifer under North America’s most populous city that has caused its foundation to compress at an alarming rate. The city was built on what what was once Lake Texcoco and the lake bed acts as an infrastructure underneath the bustling travel destination. However, the lake bed had become so…

    The football used in the Premier League this season is more stable in the air than previous official balls, a scientific study has found. But the downside of using the new Flight 2020, made by Nike, is that it travels slightly less far through the air after being thrown or kicked. The ball is ‘a game-changing football’, according to Nike, and is made of just four custom panels with a labrynth of grooves across its surface. Nike says the £125…

    Juvenile great white sharks have their own ‘training grounds’ in which they can safely hone their hunting skills away from adult rivals, a study has concluded. Researchers from Nottingham Trent University and the conservation group White Shark Africa studied great white shark populations in South Africa’s Mossel Bay. Of more than 3,000 shark sightings in a five-year period from 2009–2013, 81 per cent were between 5.7–9.8 feet (1.75–3 m) in length, classifying them as juveniles. The remainder were sub-adults, measuring…

    If you’re about to go on a long-distance flight, don’t worry about getting jetlag if you want to swiftly adapt to a new time zone, a new study suggests. In a sample of 90 people, experts in Germany found a link between concerns pre-flight over developing jetlag, and severity of the disorder post-flight after landing. They call this a form of the ‘nocebo’ effect – a negative version of a placebo, where people are more likely to experience an adverse…
