While it’s unlikely to be your first choice, your humble smartphone can work if you need to quickly set up a writing or work station in a cafe or on the train. With smartphone display sizes almost reaching an almighty 7 inches — the same size as a small tablet of yesteryear — it’s clear they have the room to accommodate a decent writing app, and with specs rivaling laptops, they have the power, too. But what they don’t have is an easy-to-use keyboard. On-screen keyboards are good, and even QWERTY phones have their dedicated users, but if you really want to get some typing done well and fast, you need a separate keyboard. But you can’t just drag a full-sized keyboard around with you on the off chance you’ll get a chance to do some typing. What you need is a portable, wireless keyboard that doesn’t take up too much room and is always ready to go. So whether you’re typing up a screenplay or the next New York Times bestseller, or you just need to get some work done, here are the best … [Read more...] about The best wireless travel keyboards for phones and tablets

First off, this article contains spoilers for Infinity War , so read ahead at your own risk. Okay, so does Carol Danvers show up in Infinity War ? Technically, the answer to that question is no. However, there's more to that answer. Brie Larson was spotted on the set of the movie last summer as well as the set of the still untitled Avengers 4 . Larson was also training for the upcoming Captain Marvel movie with United States Air Force pilots, making for one incredibly busy summer for the actress. While Captain Marvel does not appear in the meat of Infinity War , she is brought up in a major way in the post-credit scene.

Again, there are Infinity War spoilers ahead. After what seems like a few years of credits, the one and only post-credit scene from the movie pops up.

Black holes, those gravitational monsters so named because no light can escape their clutches, are by far the most mysterious objects in the universe. But a new theory proposes that black holes may not be black at all. According to a new study, these black holes may instead be dark stars home to exotic physics at their core. This mysterious new physics may cause these dark stars to emit a strange type of radiation; that radiation could in turn explain all the mysterious dark matter in the universe, which tugs on everything but emits no light. Related: The 11 biggest unanswered questions about dark matter Dark stars Thanks to Einstein’s theory of general relativity , which describes how matter warps space-time, we know that some massive stars can collapse in on themselves to such a degree that they just keep collapsing, shrinking down into an infinitely tiny point — a singularity. Once the singularity forms, it surrounds itself with an event horizon. This is … [Read more...] about Black holes could be dark stars with ‘Planck hearts’
The Seychelles is set to welcome back tourists later this month, with no need for quarantine regardless of whether a traveller has received a Covid-19 vaccine or not. The East African archipelago is looking to reopen its borders from March 25. It had previously reopened to vaccinated tourists , but now says that anyone can visit provided they can show proof of a negative Covid-19 test taken within 72 hours of travel.

A little over a year from now, the TTC hopes to start work on a massive transit project beneath the heart of downtown Toronto. The expansion of Bloor-Yonge station will cost an estimated $1.5 billion, take seven years to complete and require building a new subway platform, elevators, and escalators at an underground transit hub surrounded by dense commercial real estate, all while regular train service continues to operate. Before the pandemic, the urgent need to expand Bloor-Yonge was evident to anyone who stood on its Line 1 subway platform on a weekday morning, when crowds of downtown commuters could grow dangerously large. But during the pandemic, those crowds have thinned dramatically. With downtown office towers largely vacant and employers contemplating a shift to work-from-home, when commuters will return to the transit network and in what volume is anyone’s guess. With so much uncertainty, is it time to rethink expensive transit projects that were planned based on … [Read more...] about Will Toronto still need those transit megaprojects after COVID-19?
