The first, last year, was held in St. Augustine, Florida, a location picked to celebrate the 1896 washing ashore of a still-debated giant octopus or 5-ton blob of blubber. This year, it’s steps from Portland’s International Cryptozoology Museum. Museum Director Loren Coleman said attendees have registered from as far away as California and British Columbia. …

Ireland’s Tina Barcoe follows female footsteps in pioneering the paranormal

ANN MASSEY O’REGAN spoke with Tina Barcoe, the founder of Paranormal Researchers Ireland, about how she is following the footsteps of female pioneers in the paranormal… Women have long taken part in the world of paranormal research, yet their contribution has been undervalued or simply ignored. Female pioneers of paranormal research and investigation include Catherine Crowe whose exceptional work dates back to the mid nineteenth century. Catherine’s research and data collection were unmatched and but whilst her findings and theories were used to start the Society for Psychical Research, she herself was never recognised. And in more recent years US paranormal …

Apple finally announced the iPhone X this week, complete with a facial recognition system that Apple calls FaceID. Preliminary impressions are that FaceID will be difficult to trick, and should be secure for the average user, but researchers are eager to test its robustness. Consumer facial recognition has been around, but not yet at this scale, inviting questions about what its implications will be, particularly for privacy. Apple’s new iOS 11 mobile operating system does have more crucial privacy protections against muggers and government officials alike but researchers detailed doubts this week about the “differential privacy” techniques Apple uses that …

Official: NASA’s Cassini Probe Is Dead After 20 Years of Exploring Saturn

With the crackle and fade of a signal beamed from 932 million miles (1.5 billion km) away, NASA’s 20-year Cassini mission at Saturn has come to an end. The bus-size Cassini probe began its descent into Saturn while streaming unprecedented real-time measurements of the planet’s atmosphere. The probe ramped up its thrusters to keep its antenna dish pointed toward Earth to send the data. However, its connection with Earth didn’t last much longer: The thrusters weren’t designed to keep a spacecraft righted while plunging into Saturn at 78,000 mph (125,000 km/h). Cassini began to tumble, breaking its last bond with …

While it’s true that managing anxiety is part …
