World’s oldest message in a bottle

World’s oldest message in a bottle It’s not every day that you find a message in a bottle, let alone one that contributes to a 132-year-old scientific experiment that began half-a-world away.

Finally, the moon crossed through Earth’s shadow during the already uncommon event, also known as a total lunar eclipse. As the Moon perfectly aligned with the Earth and the Sun, it…

Or are they? While Automated Vehicles (AVs) and rideshare services like Lyft and Zipcar are sending urban planners and car companies into overdrive as they try to figure out what the impact will be, a survey by InsuranceQuotes.com suggests that Millennials aren’t as anti-personal vehicle as some might think. In 2016, they accounted for 30% of car sales in the US, despite used and new car prices reaching record highs. But how does their ownership compare to older generations?
