Martin Rogers USA TODAY Published 12:30 p.m. UTC Jun 19, 2018 MOSCOW — Okay, so here's some good news. We're now used to the fact that the United States has no involvement in this World Cup and the tournament isn’t worse off because of it. The other reason for cheer is that thanks to a series of factors including a reworking of the selection process, the Americans will probably never miss out on a World Cup again. Now for the bad news. The World Cup’s opening portion has shown us a few things, but from a domestic perspective it has proved that the United States' failure to get to Russia this summer was even worse than we thought.

When you play in the CONCACAF region, one of the most forgiving and poorly stocked of all FIFA’s confederations, it is tougher for a serious soccer nation … [Read more...] about The United States’ World Cup failure is looking worse every day
President Donald Trump announced Monday he is directing the Pentagon to create a new "Space Force" as an independent military service branch aimed at ensuring American supremacy in space. "When it comes to defending America, it is not enough to merely have an American presence in space. We must have American dominance in space," Trump said during remarks at the White House. "We are going to have the Air Force and we are going to have the Space Force, separate but equal." "My administration is reclaiming America's heritage as the world's greatest spacefaring nation," Trump said in the East Room, joined by members of his space council. "The essence of the American character is to explore new horizons and to tame new frontiers." The directive seemed to take defense officials by surprise. And Trump can't simply demand that it is created. Congress would have to pass legislation to authorize a new branch of the military fully compatible with the authorizations of existing … [Read more...] about Do you approve of the creation of a United States Space Force?

Tech & Science psychopathy If you feel like you’re constantly surrounded by psychopaths, it may be that you live in the wrong city. New research measured which areas of the country are home to the individuals with psychopathic personalities and found that the Northeast hosts a larger percentage of these individuals, with Washington, D.C., and Connecticut housing the most. The study was conducted by Ryan Murphy, a research assistant professor at Southern Methodist University in Texas. In the paper, which hasn't been peer-reviewed yet, Murphy used data on state personalities that had previously been collected in a 2013 study that estimated regional differences in personalities. The prior research used five separate samples of individuals to create an idea of the average temperament of individuals from a specific region. Using this data, Murphy then estimated psychopathy levels state by state. “These results are the first estimates we have, to the best of my knowledge, on … [Read more...] about More Psychopaths Live in This Part of the United States than Anywhere Else, New Study Shows
