    New research shows that glyphosate, a main ingredient in the world's most common weed-killer, can be harmful to honeybees.

    The study adds to other scientists' findings that glyphosate can have a negative impact on honeybee populations.
    Monsanto, which makes the weed-killer Roundup, denied that glyphosate, the product's main ingredient, is harming bees.
    A new study is providing more evidence to suggest that glyphosate , the main ingredient in Monsanto...

    By now, most of us have a general idea of what a neural network is, at least insomuch as its role in enabling the “machine learning” part of what's considered AI today. Also known as deep learning, neural networks are the algorithmic constructs that enable machines to get better at everything from facial recognition and car collision avoidance to medical diagnoses and natural-language processing.

    Dish's AirTV Player can now record two shows at once

    2 monthes ago - By Tech Crunch

    Dish today is launching a new dual-tuner adapter for $29 that will allow AirTV Player owners to watch one live TV channel and record another, or record two channels at once. The option to bundle an AirTV Player with the adapter is also now available for $119 - a bit of a savings over buying the single tuner AirTV Player and adapter separately.
    The AirTV Player, Dish's 4K-capable media streamer set-top box, was first unveiled at CES 2017, and was later joined by Dish's networked TV tuner, called simply AirTV .

    The 6 worst new network TV shows this fall, from 'FBI' to 'New Amsterdam'

    2 monthes ago - By Business Insider

    2018 has been a pretty good year for television, but not for new network shows.
    Most of the new shows that have come from the big broadcast networks feel like they've been done over and over again, like the medical drama "New Amsterdam" on NBC. And others, like ABC's "A Million Little Things," feel like knock-offs of successful shows like "This Is Us."
    In fact, network television has had a bad year generally, delivering many unwatchable or mediocre shows. While there are some promising new shows on the networks like CBS' "Murphy Brown" reboot and ABC's "Single Parents," most are performing...
