Where the Rhône and Saône rivers meet in Lyon is the location of the historic French city’s urban development project, which has been transforming the former industrial wasteland into spaces for residences, offices, shopping and leisure since the……

For the first time ever, animals have been observed changing their call for a particular object — something comparable in human language to a noun. The new research overturns the previous understanding of these vocalizations as essentially fixed.
“As far as we know, this is the first evidence we’ve seen of a referential call being modified,” says Simon Townsend, lead author of the paper published in the journal Current Biology and head of the University of Zurich’s animal communication group. “This suggests that the way meaning is assigned in human language and in animals might be more similar than previously thought.”
The chimpanzees’ vocalizations expressed their feelings on apples
Scientists observed the change during the…

If you need to embed a map into your project, you could be forgiven for thinking Google Maps is your only choice. It’s used by over 2 million sites and it’s a proven technology, having been launched in 2005.
If you’ve yet to play BioShock Infinite, the 2013 first-person shooter from now defunct studio Irrational Games, there’s good news: the game is incredibly cheap on Xbox 360 right now. You can grab Infinite for just $ 4.49 through the Xbox Live marketplace, a pretty steep decline for a game that still regularly sells for more than $ 30 elsewhere (even the extra downloadable episodes set in Rapture will set you back more). We’re not quite sure how long the deal will last for, though, so you’ll want to grab it soon.
Instagram now has a bigger active user base than Twitter, according to a blog post written today by CEO Kevin Systrom. The photo and video sharing platform has over 300 million active users, more than Twitter’s 284 million but a far cry behind parent company Facebook’s 1.3 billion. Systrom also says that those users are uploading more than 70 million photos and videos per day.
Not only does Instagram now have more users, it’s also growing at a faster rate than Twitter. Instagram has doubled the amount of its active monthly users since last fall, when the service passed the 150 million mark. Twitter reached 200 million active monthly users in December of 2012, but it has seen its growth slow since then while also being passed by services…
Today I finally realized why there are so many Star Wars fanboys: there’s a lot of shady pseudoscience behind everything in the Star Wars universe, and it’s pretty fun to argue about.
Today’s preeminent fanboy argument is over the crazy new lightsaber in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer. In the darkest vignette from the trailer, we’re shown a cloaked figure who stumbles down a snowy slope in a dark forest. The figure reaches the bottom, enters a defensive stance, and whips out a lightsaber that looks like a medieval claymore: a two-handed longsword with a crossguard.
The only problem is that this design is pretty stupid for a lightsaber, at least when it looks like this:

Twitter’s head of news, Vivian Schiller, has quit her job at the company less than a year after she took the role. Schiller joined Twitter as the social media platform started to move more aggressively into journalism at the end of last year, building new alerts for breaking news, and attempting to nurture relationships with the media industry. She announced she was stepping down as Twitter consolidates its global media division under new boss Katie Jacobs Stanton.
