Ninety-two year old James Barbour III is tough in an unusual kind of way. The stereotypical tough guy grimaces and fights and struggles. Instead, Jim has the remarkable ability to stay even, to keep things light. To make it seem like when the going gets rough, well, it’s not rough at all. According to him and wife, Patricia Barbour, he’s never even sworn. He says “Oh my,” when he’s most fired up.

After months of devastating fires, rain finally began to fall significantly in parts of Australia over the past week.
But because the gods are cruel, this has resulted in hail and flash flooding. This extreme hasn't gone unnoticed by magic users on Reddit. Some are now arguing over the appropriate way to send rain to our drought-stricken country... and who deserves the credit for it.
While the app isn't public, that doesn't rule out the potential for other agencies to be using it. As it turns out, the Australia Federal Police (AFP) apparently isn't one of them.
Some would argue that Pornhub (and its associated sites) has done quite a bit to improve the accessibility of its site, what with a new site for the visually impaired and close captioning on some videos for the deaf. But apparently that isn't enough, because the company is being sued for not having enough closed-captioning subtitles.

In the 1980s, General Motors was hurting badly. It was the Roger Smith era, during which the company’s U.S. market share would end up dropping from the mid 40 per cent range to the mid 30s. To help stop the bleeding, The General needed something to compete with the imports. More specifically, it needed an efficient, modern four-cylinder engine.
There’s a wealth of free software and apps available to help you get the most out of your computer or smartphone (or both) — so much, in fact, that it’s hard to get around to trying most of them. That’s where this list comes in. It’s freshly curated to highlight the top tools and applications you’re (probably) not already using.
We already know how deadly this summer’s fires have been for mammals, birds, and reptiles across Australia. But beyond this bushfire season, many of those same species – including our bats, which make up around a quarter of all Australian mammal species – are facing another devastating threat to their survival.
It’s a question a child might ask, but not a childish question. Sure, right now, we mammalian primates are calling all the shots here on Earth, but what if things had gone otherwise? We know that cephalopods like Squid and Octopi are really smart — what if they were the dominant life? And, more importantly, what would their cars be like?
Last year Google got into some hot water when it was discovered that humans were listening to recordings from Assistant users to "improve speech technology". Google subsequently promised to bring in some changes to Assistant, including more control over the sensitivity of its wake words.
The latest Google app beta has revealed what that will most likely look like.
Siri is apparently having a really hard time figuring out what’s going on in Spain lately. Apple’s voice assistant made headlines in the European country today for providing two answers to the question, “Siri, who is the king of Spain?” The first answer, Felipe VI, is indeed the real king of the country. However, the second answer is actually Spain’s prime minister, Pedro Sánchez.
