Researchers from the University of Sussex and the Amboseli Trust for Elephants played recordings of human voices to wild elephants in Kenya and watched how they reacted. "Our results demonstrate that elephants can reliably discriminate between two different ethnic groups that differ in the level of threat they represent," the authors said in an article published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The researchers said the findings provided the first proof elephants can distinguish between human voices, and suggested that other animals seeking to avoid hunters may also have developed this skill.
Upcoming cyber-vigilante adventure "Watch Dogs" still features a free roam multiplayer, and players can hack billboards with a free mobile app, confirms its Creative Director. Fielding questions on Twitter after Ubisoft announced a May 27 release for the impressive-looking game, Jonathan Morin affirmed that its multiplayer component was still very much in play. The futuristic game of hacking and corporate oppression was first unveiled as a true surprise in 2012, at the end of Ubisoft's Electronic Entertainment Expo stage presentation. Having introduced players to a new protagonist, vigilante hacker Aiden Pearce, and set his exploits against the backdrop of an overly surveilled and sumptuously realized Chicago, the game's Montreal team finally zoomed out into a multiplayer scenario as several players raced around on missions within the dystopian metropolis.
Ubisoft said Thursday that it will unleash hacker-themed video game "Watch Dogs" on May 27 in what could turn a disappointing launch delay into a smart marketing move. Shares in the publicly traded French company took a hit when it announced that "Watch Dogs" would not be released as originally planned in November of last year. In contrast, a May debut for "Watch Dogs" could take place when owners of new-generation PlayStation 4 or Xbox One consoles released late last year are hungry for fresh games to play. Versions of "Watch Dogs" will be available for current and previous generation PlayStation or Xbox consoles as well as for play on personal computers powered by Windows software.
Watch Dogs made a huge splash at E3, promising to be one of the stand-out launch window titles for the new consoles, but to our dismay, the game was delayed until spring just weeks before it was scheduled to release. Months later, Ubisoft is finally ready to share a new release date: May 27th on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. The game is still going to make it to the Wii U as well, but Ubisoft hasn’t set a date quite yet. Along with the date comes a new trailer, delving deeper into the story of Aiden Pearce, the hacker who plans to use the city of Chicago as a weapon against his foes. He looks really angry.

Raising awareness about the plight of elephants is, without doubt, necessary. It has galvanized Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her daughter Chelsea, the Vice-Chair of the Clinton Foundation, to mobilize support from presidents of elephant-range states to take concrete action to halt the slaughter of elephants for their ivory.
By Jennifer Saba NEW YORK (Reuters) - BuzzFeed has come a long way from cat lists. This month one of its journalists was on the ground in Kiev reporting on the crisis in Ukraine, and last December it published an in-depth article on a Chinese dissident living in Harlem, New York. When Facebook Inc tweaked its News Feed filters in December to weed out low-quality stories and other content, many were waiting to see if it would hurt publishers including BuzzFeed, the leading purveyor of "sponsored content" on the Web. But that didn't happen to BuzzFeed, which continues to log impressive increases in readership.
Models in furs paced around a ring of fire at Roberto Cavalli's catwalk show at Milan Fashion Week on Saturday, which was picketed by animal rights protesters. The typically over-the-top designer put a water feature in the centre of a large tent next to Milan's Arco della Pace, around which a ring of fire was lit at the start of the show as models circled. Cavalli opened his largest shop in the world in Milan this week, which includes furniture, kitchenware and even wallpaper.
(Reuters) - Miami Dolphins coach Joe Philbin has pledged to create a "better workplace" inside the team locker room in his first public comments since an independent report by the NFL last week detailed a pattern of bullying. A 144-page report by independent investigator Ted Wells released six days ago found that Richie Incognito and two team mates had engaged in repeated harassment against the Dolphins' Jonathan Martin and two others. The report also named Miami players John Jerry and Mike Pouncey as offenders and said another young Dolphins offensive lineman and an assistant trainer were also targets.
