  • Even the Wimbledon traditionalist Roger Federer thinks they've gone too far with the all-white thing

    For this French Open, Roger Federer is lit up like a My Little Pony Christmas tree. “Obviously it's going to change when Wimbledon comes around because rules have become ridiculously strict over there, and I love Wimbledon, but they have gone too far now,” Federer said after his first-round win over Alejandro Falla of Colombia. Federer, of course, might well have been the catalyst for the tightening of the all-white rules when he – GASP! – showed up two years ago with orange soles on his white Nike sneakers.

  • Ocean 'blob' could be responsible for warmer temperatures

    If you're wondering why British Columbia experienced such a mild winter and early spring, you could maybe blame it on a mysterious "blob" of warm water in the Pacific Ocean. The anomaly was first detected in 2013 by University of Washington climate scientist Nicholas Bond, who coined the term "blob." Since the fall of that year, scientists have been tracking a large mass of water in the Pacific Ocean that is 1,000 kilometres long and at least 2 degrees Celsius warmer than usual. Ocean Networks Canada, which has been studying the phenomenon, says the blob may have formed because a weak low pressure system over the ocean is limiting the mixing of warm waters and cool, nutrient-rich water.

  • Grim job continues to excavate bodies of those buried at Bedlam

    Remarkable new images have emerged of the skulls, jawbones, arms, legs and spines pulled from a historic London burial site as researchers continue excavating what they can of its estimated 20,000 corpses. Taken from the site of London's notorious Bedlam Hospital, they are the long-buried remains of many asylum patients once subjected to the cruel and brutal treatments that characterised our early understanding of mental health. Archaeologists have spent months painstakingly excavating the remains of thousands buried at the site, to make way for construction of London's new Crossrail project.
