    IT repairman seeks home for Apple collection, possibly world's largest

    An Austrian computer repairman has amassed what he believes could be the world's biggest collection of old Apple computers, but it might all soon be destroyed unless someone can take it off his hands. Over the years since he began working for a company that repaired Apples in Vienna in the 1980s, Roland Borsky's collection has grown to roughly 1,100 computers, he says - far more than the 472 items at Prague's Apple Museum, which says it is the world's biggest private collection of Apple products. Ironically, however, Apple's success has made life harder for his business, and he has decided to close it.

    Plankton moving into Arctic waters previously covered with ice could have ‘drastic consequences’

    Declining Arctic sea ice is allowing phytoplankton blooms, made up of billions of microscopic plant organisms, to expand northwards into ice-free waters where they have never been seen before, scientists have discovered. Research based on satellite images showing ocean colours reveals vast spring blooms of phytoplankton in the Arctic ocean where blooms were previously non-existent, which are expanding northwards at a rate of one degree of latitude per decade. The study also showed the primary productivity of phytoplankton – the rate at which they turn sunlight into energy – is growing during the spring blooms.

Jamestown — a 15 minute drive from Twain Harte, five from Sonora — is also a must, thanks to the Railtown 1897 State Historic Park, where you can ride on a turn-of-the-century steam locomotive. Kitsch-lovers might also consider a visit to the 1859 Historic National Hotel, where very little has changed since, you guessed it, 1859.

    Modified cotton could be human food source after U.S. green light

    U.S. regulators have cleared the way for farmers to grow a cotton plant genetically modified to make the cottonseed edible for people, a protein-packed potential new food source that could be especially useful in cotton-growing countries beset with malnutrition. The U.S. Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service on Tuesday lifted the regulatory prohibition on cultivation by farmers of the cotton plant, which was developed by Texas A&M University scientists. The plant's cottonseed cannot be used as food for people or as animal feed yet in the United States because it lacks Food and Drug Administration approval.

    US regulators lift strict oversight of Prudential

    A group of federal regulators has lifted the strict government oversight imposed on big insurer Prudential Financial Inc. It was the last financial company still carrying the label that subjected it to special restrictions stemming from the 2008 financial crisis. It was the latest example in the Trump administration's push to unwind Obama-era regulatory requirements aimed at averting another financial meltdown. The council tagged Prudential in 2013 as a "systemically important" institution, one so big and interconnected that it would threaten the financial system's stability if it collapsed.
