Michael Jordan donates $2M for hurricane relief in NC | WLOS

The six-time NBA champion and Charlotte Hornets owner donated $2 million on Tuesday to assist residents of the Carolinas — $1 million each to the American Red Cross and the Foundation For The Carolinas’ Hurricane Florence Response Fund.

Weird Infrared Signal Emanates Across Space, But What Created It?

Space is filled with bizarre signals that us Earthlings scramble to put meaning to. Researchers detected yet another mysterious signal that emanated from near a neutron star, and, for the first time, it’s infrared.

This signal, they found, was about 800 light-years away and was “extended,” meaning it was spread across a large stretch of space, unlike typical “point” signals from neutron stars that emit X-rays. Specifically, the signal stretched across 200 astronomical units (AU) of space, or 2.5 times the orbit of Pluto around the sun, according to a statement from Penn State. (One AU is the average distance from Earth to the sun — about 93 million miles, or 150 million kilometers.)

Woman Rides Bicycle To 183.9 MPH — A New World Record : NPR

The fastest human to ride a bicycle over open ground is named Denise Mueller-Korenek, who rode a custom bike at an average of 183.932 miles per hour – shattering a world record that had stood since 1995.

Mueller-Korenek, 45, set the new record for fastest speed riding in a slipstream, teaming up with Shea Holbrook, a professional race car driver who piloted a dragster that led the cyclist across the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah.

“Good job, Mom,” Mueller-Korenek’s son, Daniel, said in a video he recorded as he joined his mother in the finish area on Sunday.

“Two people were taken to hospital for treatment; two of those injured are males in their twenties. Their injuries are minor. One did not require hospital treatment. A man in his fifties remains in hospital and is being treated for a serious leg injury,” it said.

The marijuana edibles Ebony Cooper and Leah Pressley were offering included cereal treats, brownies and puddings, police say.

Police say Ms Cooper was displaying the drugs on a table at the event, although the church was unaware of the illegal activities.

Windows 10 is losing the following features in the October 2018 Update | TechRadar

 

So, for example, the OneSync service has been dropped – which syncs data across the Calendar, Mail and People apps – mainly because Microsoft has introduced a sync engine to the Outlook application which does the same job.

Windows 10 version 1809, which is the other name for the October 2018 Update, should arrive, as the name suggests, in October. As ever, though, the rollout will doubtless be spread over several months, so you may well be waiting until later in the year before you get all the new goodies from the update.

Those include a generous lick of paint for the interface (with a dark mode for File Explorer, too), a raft of improvements for gamers, a new Your Phone app and much more.

Although much of this functionality is simply being incorporated elsewhere
