California Desert Braces for Aftershocks From New Major 7.1 Quake

Emergency officials and jittery residents in the high desert of Southern California braced for potentially dangerous aftershocks from a major earthquake that damaged buildings, ruptured gas lines and sparked fires near the remote epicenter of the temblor. The powerful magnitude 7.1 tremor rocked the Mojave Desert town of Ridgecrest south of Death Valley National Park as darkness fell on Friday night, jolting the area with eight times more force than a 6.4 quake that had struck the same area 34 hours earlier. California Governor Gavin Newsom requested federal assistance and…

Tesla Posts Big Quarterly Loss as Its Electric-Car Sales Lag

Tesla’s surprisingly weak electric-car deliveries in the first quarter took a heavy toll on its bottom line. The company said on Wednesday that it lost $702 million in the first quarter, a sharp reversal from the profits it made in the second half of last year. The loss, equivalent to $4.10 per share, was far greater than the $1.81 per share that Wall Street analysts, surveyed by FactSet, had forecast. The quarter’s revenue of $4.54 billion fell well short of expectations. Tesla had $2.2 billion of cash at the end…

In a galaxy far, far away . . . Luke Skywalker spent his days on Tatooine drinking blue milk and also, apparently, Coca-Cola. OK, not really, but as part of Disneyland’s never-ending mission to completely blow our minds, the park is opening an entire new section called Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – and even the soda is space-themed. In partnership with Disney, the soft drink company is releasing custom bottles of Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Sprite, and Dasani water, and the bottles look like mini droids! The spherical “orb” bottles, which…

Netflix’s Someone Great Trailer | POPSUGAR Entertainment

A new Netflix romantic comedy is on the way, but this time around, it seems the story is more about falling in love with yourself and your friends, rather than a significant other. And, that’s a message we can certainly get behind! In the first trailer, above, we meet music journalist Jenny (Gina Rodriguez), who has landed a coveted gig at Rolling Stone. The only catch? It means moving from her home in New York City to San Francisco, leaving behind her longtime best friends Erin (DeWanda Wise) and Blair…

Alejandro Aranda’s American Idol Audition Video

It’s not typical for potential American Idol contestants to play two instruments during their auditions, but Alejandro Aranda is no ordinary musician. On March 6, the 24-year-old from Pomona, CA, performed for judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan with his original song “Out Loud” and left them speechless with his vocal talents and unbelievable speed on the guitar. Instead of giving Aranda the automatic pass to Hollywood, Richie first requested the self-taught performer play another tune — this time on the piano. While Aranda admitted he hadn’t played…

Pennsylvania Coal Fires | Interesting Thing of the Day

There are a bunch of little facts that I sort of half-learned in elementary school, and only those that came with terrific mnemonics have managed to stick. I remember the terms “Dromedary” and “Bactrian,” for example, because a D has one hump (like a one-hump Dromedary camel) and a B has two (like a two-hump Bactrian camel). But I never acquired a similar method for remembering cloud types—cirrus, cumulus, nimbus—I know the names but I forget which is which. And then there’s coal. I vividly recall learning about anthracite, bituminous,…

The Tactile Dome | Interesting Thing of the Day

San Francisco’s Exploratorium is an immense (and immensely popular) hands-on science museum. Exhibits cover the usual range of subjects—electricity, physics, optics, biology, and so on—but with a degree of interactive friendliness that’s rare even in the best science museums (and I’ve seen quite a few). Almost everything is designed to be touched, played with, and experimented on—even by young children, whose destructive impulses know no bounds. Although I visited the Exploratorium a number of times during the years I lived in San Francisco, there was one exhibit I’d never experienced…
