    Could cheerleading be the most progressive sport in terms of gender roles?

The study, which was published in the journal Sport in Society: Cultures, Commerce, Media, Politics, tracked the growing popularity of cheerleading in the U.K. and focused on the members of four cheerleading teams.  “The participants in our study talked about flipping gender norms in cheerleading,” Dr. Amy Pressland, a co-author of the study, tells Yahoo Parenting.

  • 15/75   High School Quarterback’s Tragic Death Highlights Silent Danger of an Enlarged Spleen
    SPORTS TOPIC NEWS

    A spleen can become enlarged for many reasons, including genetic diseases, William Katkov, MD, a gastroenterologist at Providence Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif., tells Yahoo Health.  Here’s why that’s a problem: A person may feel better and resume their normal activities, but their enlarged spleen is more susceptible to rupturing and may no longer be protected by their ribcage, leaving it incredibly vulnerable to injury.  “An enlarged spleen is at an increased risk for rupture or injury in the setting of normal trauma, like a football game, diving into a pool, or minor car accident,” Katkov says.  While an enlarged spleen can be asymptomatic, Katkov says a person can feel uncomfortable or have a feeling of fullness in their upper abdomen on the left side.

Operators of drones that are more than 7kg have to be licensed, according to draft law issued by the Civil Aviation Administration of China in 2015. Rules are generally more relaxed in rural China than in urban, built-up areas, but drones must keep out of restricted airspace and follow rules set by the military and the government.  The new rules also forbid deliveries made by drone in built-up, urban areas, and require all drones to register to their place of manufacture, weight and maximum altitude before they are allowed to take off.

    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    Viewers tuning into 
The Rachel Maddow Show on March 14 were disappointed to see, after much hype and 20 minutes of on-air build up, that an expected bombshell turned out to be a giant dud. Maddow saw a surge of viewers to her program, following teaser tweets about obtaining President Trump's tax returns. Maddow eventually revealed two pages of Trump's 2005 tax return. The forms showed that Trump earned $150 million that year and paid $38 million in taxes. Maddow's source, financial journalist David Cay Johnston, claimed to have received the documents in his mailbox. Despite the tax return not yielding anything of real significance, Mr. Trump still went out of his way denounce the findings as "fake news."

The evacuation of Waer, a northwestern district of the city that has been under siege by the army for years, is the latest in a series of 'reconciliation' deals struck by the government that the rebels say amount to starving them out.  Thousands are expected to leave Waer in the coming weeks in the final phase of the evacuation agreement, which had stalled in recent months.

After the latest eruption on March 16, fiery-hot lava began flowing down the volcano's slopes. The video shown above captures the flow only two days later.  SEE ALSO: Watch this Mexican volcano blow some serious smoke  But as Mount Etna reminded visitors, lava is best viewed from afar.

Molten rocks and steam rained down on hikers, journalists and a scientist, who scrambled to escape the volcanic firestorm. In the eastern Sicilian city of Catania, the airport was forced to close last week after thick clouds of volcanic ash made it impossible to land or launch airplanes. By Saturday, however, flights had resumed at the Catania airport, AP reported.

  • 61/75   Earth just had its second-warmest February on record
    SCIENCE TOPIC NEWS

    As the saying goes: Another month, another disconcerting report from top U.S. climate agencies. Last month was Earth's second-hottest February on record since at least 1880, NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) recently reported.  At the same time, the extent of sea ice in the Arctic and Antarctica hit record monthly lows.  SEE ALSO: Here’s why it's so frickin’ hot right now  In February 2017, the average global temperature was 1.76 degrees Fahrenheit above the 20th-century average of 53.9 degrees, NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information said late last week.     February 2017 land and ocean temperature percentiles,   Image: NOAA/NCEI   Only February 2016 was warmer, at a staggering 2.43 degrees Fahrenheit above average, NOAA said. The entire year of 2016 was also the hottest on record, with last year's temperatures exceeding all previous years since record-keeping began 137 years ago.  NOAA and NASA scientists said human-caused global warming was responsible for a majority of the annual temperature gains — a fact the Trump administration seems determined to ignore. For U.S. residents, it's probably not surprising to learn that last month was exceptionally warm. February 2017 saw widespread record warmth across the country and a series of record highs.  Other parts of the world similarly experienced an atypically warm winter.    Image: NOAA   From December 2016 to February 2017, the global average temperature was 1.60 degrees Fahrenheit above the 20th-century average of 53.8 degrees, NOAA said. This was the second warmest for this season, second only to December 2015 to February 2016. The first two months of 2017 also landed in second place. The year-to-date average temperature for January through February 2017 was 1.69 degrees Fahrenheit above average, just below the first two months of 2016. Those balmier temperatures meant troubling news for the planet's sea ice.     Sea ice extent for Arctic (left) and Antarctic regions.   Image: National snow ice and data center/university of colorado, boulder   Both the Arctic and Antarctic seas logged the smallest February sea ice extent since satellite records began in 1979, according to NOAA data analyzed by the Rutgers Global Snow Lab. The average Antarctic sea ice extent was 24.4 percent below the 1981-2010 average for February, the U.S. climate agency reported. In the Arctic region, the average sea ice extent was 7.6 percent below average. But warmer air temperatures aren't the only culprit in shrinking sea ice. Ocean temperatures are similarly heating up, in part because of human-driven climate change.    Sea ice extent for 2016 (blue) compared to other record low years, as of Dec. 5, 2016.   Image: national snow and ice data center   A new study found oceans may be warming about 13 percent faster than scientists previously thought. The warming rate from 1992 is nearly two times the warming rate from 1960, according to a paper published March 10 in the journal 
Science Advances. In its monthly report, NOAA said the globally averaged sea surface temperature also ranked as second-highest on record for February, the December-February season and the two-month year-to-date.

Ocean temperatures are similarly heating up, in part because of human-driven climate change. Sea ice extent for 2016 (blue) compared to other record low years, as of Dec. 5, 2016. Image: national snow and ice data center A new study found oceans may be warming about 13 percent faster than scientists previously thought. The warming rate from 1992 is nearly two times the warming rate from 1960, according to a paper published March 10 in the journal Science Advances. In its monthly report, NOAA said the globally averaged sea surface temperature also ranked as second-highest on record for February, the December-February season and the two-month year-to-date. Anyone want to guess how March's report will look? WATCH: Watch how global warming heats up the world from 1880-2016

    SCIENCE TOPIC NEWS

    The remains of a huge Roman temple, the size of St Paul's Cathedral in London has been found by a Cambridge University archaeological team in central Italy.  The sacred site was uncovered several feet below Falerii Novi, an abandoned town around 30 miles north of Rome.  Theories on its use have given insight into a period of Roman expansion and urbanisation in Italy.

  • 64/75   Elon Musk’s lab forced bots to create their own language
    SCIENCE TOPIC NEWS

    Have you ever experienced the dread of overhearing two people, speaking a language you don't understand, begin laughing wildly? You just have to wonder what it is they're talking about, and if it's a joke at your expense. Heck, maybe you even check your teeth to make sure you aren't walking around with half of your lunchtime ham sandwich stuck to your gums. Now, thanks to Elon Musk's OpenAI lab, we're one step closer to experiencing the exact same thing, only with software bots doing the talking.

As Wired reports, researchers at OpenAI have made some huge strides in getting bots to communicate with each other, and without actually telling them how to do so. The group published a research paper earlier this week explaining exactly how they were able to accomplish the complex task, and it's all based on reinforcement learning.

Reinforcement learning is the same concept that many pet owners use to train their animals, and centers on rewarding correct behaviors. In the case of AI, it means knowing what actions help it in completing a task, and continuing to do them.
In OpenAI's experiments, bots were assigned assigned colors, red, green, and blue. Then they were given a task, such as finding their way to a certain point in a flat, two-dimensional world. Without giving the three separate AI a dictionary of commands to help each other, the bots were force to create their own in order to achieve their goal. The bots successfully assigned text characters to represent themselves as well as actions and obstacles in the virtual space, sharing that information with each other until they all understood what was going on. Check out the video above to see the bots in action.
