Many dreams happen in the sleep phase called rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. This phase is the most likely to produce dreams in which we do things "we don't normally do," like flying, Salas told Live Science. Scans show that the brains of people in REM sleep look similar to the brains of people who are awake. … [Read more...] about Can you ‘turn off’ a nightmare?

A lot of them exist as scripts, and sometimes they get to the point where they are partially storyboarded or I’ve done rudimentary animatics. But I’m excited to do more in the production realm soon because I feel like that’s probably the way I need to evolve my ideas. A lot of PBF comics are dependent on really tiny, subtle details. And sometimes when I’m scripting, it’s not always easy to handle the details. So in the future, I’d like to be working with the details a little more. Every two years, I think I work on another TV show idea. And I think at exactly the same rate, networks realize that the idea is probably a little too weird. … [Read more...] about Perry Bible Fellowship’s Nicholas Gurewitch on making comics for the internet’s golden age
┏ Feds claim Huawei can snoop on mobile networks. For some time now, I’ve been frustrated by the significant gap between the strident rhetoric from US officials and the evidence they failed to provide to back it up.

The Macan seems to be part of a drive to attract those elusive middle-ground buyers who find the Cayenne too big and one of Porsche's more standard sports cars too small. Porsche executives went to lengths to draw parallels between the German car maker's more recognizable sports cars—the 911 and even the ultra high-end 918—and the four-door Macan. And although almost everyone wants to call the Macan a shrunk-down Cayenne, Porsche says that's not quite the case either. Furthermore, although the chassis is based on the Audi Q5, Porsche has claimed that over two-thirds of the Macan's parts are not based on Audi's design. … [Read more...] about A day in the new Porsche Macan, an SUV that wants to race
Gaming’s Joe Montana? (Not the Sega Genesis version) E-sport legitimacy already faces the uphill battle of convincing TV viewers that a person twiddling joysticks behind a screen is in any way comparable to the prowess of Michael Jordan or Joe Montana. It's going to take the efforts of up-and-coming, die-hard gaming superstars to reverse that course, but many of those players in the field's minorities will be the wisest to its worst stories. … [Read more...] about Op-ed: E-sports cannot fight segregation with segregation
