Three new ghost-like species found in world’s deepest marine trenches

Freaky sightings from the alien-like world at the bottom of the oceans.

Thousands of meters below the ocean’s surface in the deep trenches, everything is in pitch black and the pressure can be up to a thousand times greater than at the sea level. This unexplored environment looks and feels like it’s from an alien planet — and the creatures that inhabit it are no different. Three new such species — translucent, scaleless, ghost-like creatures — were recently fished out of the bottoms of the ocean, off the coasts of Peru and Chile.

The 276 survivors were eventually taken to the Libyan port city of Khoms, around 100 km (62 miles) to the south-east of the capital Tripoli.

The survivors, including children, are now reportedly in “arbitrary detention” in Libya.

TV may invite viewer to sue its manufacturer – BBC News

Consider it a different kind of on-screen courtroom drama. Owners of Vizio Smart TVs may soon see a message inviting them to take legal action against the manufacturer.

California-based Vizio, one of America’s leading TV brands, was in 2015 caught gathering large amounts of user data, which was then passed on to advertisers.

It settled with the US trade regulator for $2.2m (£1.7m), but still faces a class action lawsuit involving potentially millions of customers.

The company could now be forced to inform potentially affected owners directly – via a pop-up message on-screen.

Pluto should be a planet again, researchers argue | Fox News

Pluto should be reclassified as a planet, according to a new research study.

n 2006, the International Astronomical Union (IAU) downgraded Pluto’s status to “dwarf planet.”

However, Neptune’s gravity influences its neighbor Pluto. The dwarf planet also shares its orbit with frozen gases and objects in the Kuiper belt, researchers note.

In a paper published in the journal Icarus, Philip Metzger, a planetary scientist at the University of Central Florida, argues that the reason Pluto lost its planet status is not valid.
