The Inventor of Android On the Future of Smartphones and Beyond
When Andy Rubin sold his startup Android to Google in 2005, the tech landscape looked vastly different. Our phones had clunky keypads, barely functional cameras, and mini screens that didn’t support touch input. They also couldn’t run the same apps. It’s hard to remember what that felt like in a world where Android-powered mobile devices are everywhere, each one built on the same software foundation. More than a decade later, Rubin is trying to crack the next big platform war that’s brewing in the consumer tech space. “There were so many frickin’ operating systems for phones,” Rubi...

Man Who Murdered His Kids While Their Mother Helplessly Listened Is Set to Be Executed
(AUSTIN, Texas)— An appeals court has lifted a stay of execution for a Dallas man convicted of fatally shooting his two young daughters 16 years ago while their mother listened helplessly over the phone. The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals ruled Wednesday that 62-year-old John Battaglia is competent to be executed. The appeals court is sending the case to the trial court to set an execution date. The appeals court issued a stay in December to review whether Battaglia was mentally competent to be put to death. His attorney had appealed a judge’s ruling that he was mentally competent for execution. Battaglia was ...

Why Playing a Sport Should Be Your New Workout
People who play a sport are more likely to stay healthy and fit as they age, according to a new study published in BMJ Open, compared to those who do other types of physical activity. Finding a sport you love early in life—and playing it often—may be the key to staying active in your 70s, 80s and beyond. The transition from middle age to old age is often one of slowing down. Retirement or injuries, for example, can lead to major life changes and affect the amount of physical activity a person gets on a regular basis. Yet staying active is vital to preserving mental and physical health—and the ability to l...

Boston Marathon Bombing Survivor on Reliving His Story Through the Movie Stronger: ‘It Was Hard But It Was Beautiful’
The Boston Marathon bombing survivor who inspired the new movie Stronger was brought to tears while watching the film, which he said triggered feelings of pain, love and regret.

In a Quantum Leap, Star Trek Becomes a Female Enterprise
When CBS announced two years ago that it would bring Star Trek back to television, this time starring two women of color, you could have been forgiven for thinking the trolls might stay under their bridges for once. Even if they turned out in droves to protest the casting of Daisy Ridley as the lead of the new Star Wars and harassed the stars of the all-female Ghostbusters remake, surely Trekkers–fans prefer that term to Trekkies–would be different. After all, when it first aired in the 1960s, Star Trek boasted one of the most diverse casts on TV, and in 1968 it broadcast the first interracial kiss. Across its ...

Girl Found Trapped in Rubble as Rescuers Look for Survivors of Mexico Earthquake

TIME ’s Second Century
Hanging above my desk is a letter from the editors of TIME to my grandfather. An immigrant who fled Nazi Germany in the 1930s, he, like so many others of his era, was introduced to America through the pages of this magazine. Now and then, he returned the favor by introducing TIME’s editors to some of his own ideas–in this case with a dispatch (in rhyme!) pointing out that they had erred in using the word who instead of whom on a recent cover. TIME acknowledged in response that, grammatically speaking, it was “skating on very thin ice” but noted, citing H.L. Mencken, Noah Webster and Do’s, Don&...

The SEC Says Its Filing System Got Hacked and the Data Possibly Used for Illegal Trades
NEW YORK — The Securities and Exchange Commission said Wednesday that a cyber breach of a filing system it uses may have provided the basis for some illegal trading in 2016. In a statement posted on the SEC’s website, Chairman Jay Clayton said a review of the agency’s cybersecurity risk profile determined that the previously detected “incident” was caused by “a software vulnerability” in its EDGAR filing system. The statement said the software was patched quickly after the hack was uncovered in 2016, although the possibility that some may have used it to make illegal profits was on...

Neuron types in brain are defined by gene activity shaping their communication patterns
(Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory) In a major step forward, scientists at CSHLtoday publish a discovery about the molecular-genetic basis of neuronal cell types. Neurons are the basic building blocks that wire up brain circuits supporting mental activities and behavior. The study, which involves sophisticated computational analysis of the messages transcribed from genes that are active in a neuron, points to patterns of cell-to-cell communication as the core feature that makes possible rigorous distinctions among neuron types across the mouse brain.

How ‘Bronx Bull’ Boxer Jake LaMotta Got His Nickname and Inspired Raging Bull
In the decades after his boxing career came to an end, Jake LaMotta — who has died at the age of 95 — was perhaps best known for having inspired the 1980 film Raging Bull. The acclaimed movie “canonized and cauterized” the boxer, in the words of TIME’s film critic Richard Corliss, as filmmaker Martin Scorsese translated onto the big screen the “nostalgic nightmare” of LaMotta’s 1970 memoir. The two also shared a title, a reference to the nickname that followed the boxer throughout his career. In the book, LaMotta wrote that he had earned the moniker for his style in the ring...
