• The Durian Fruit Could Be The Key To Fast-Charging Your Devices

    The durian, also known as the king of fruit, is probably familiar to some of you. To some, it is an incredibly smelly fruit that has been described as the smell of rotting corpses, while others feast on it with gusto where in certain parts of the world, all-you-can-eat durian buffets are actually a thing.

    However, it seems that regardless of whether or not you enjoy the thorny fruit, it appears that scientists have discovered another potential use for it: fast-charging our electronic devices and maybe even electric cars. This is due to the way nature has designed thorny fruits like the durian and jackfruit, where researchers have found that by harnessing the biowaste of the fruit, they can turn it into supercapacitors that have the ability to store large amounts of energy.

    According to the researchers, “The structural precision of natural biomass with their hierarchical pores, developed over millions

  • Did a Woman Get Coronavirus Twice? Scientists Are Skeptical

    What could be worse than getting the pneumonia-like illness now known as Covid-19? Getting it twice.

    That’s what Japanese government officials say may have happened to a female tour bus guide in Osaka. The woman was first diagnosed with Covid-19 in late January, according to a statement released by Osaka’s prefectural government Wednesday. She was discharged shortly after, once her symptoms had improved. A subsequent test came back negative for the virus. Three weeks later she returned with a sore throat and chest pain and tested again. For a second time, she tested positive for Covid-19.

  • iPhone XR Might Have Been 2019’s Best-Selling Smartphone

    When Apple announced the iPhone XR, we were a bit skeptical. After all, the handset reminded us of the iPhone 5c which was kind of a flop, so it felt like Apple was headed that way again. However, we were proven wrong as all the data seemed to suggest that the phone was actually doing rather well.

    Now it turns out, we might have underestimated just how well it might have done. This is according to a report from Omdia, a research company where based on the data that they have collected, it seems that the iPhone XR has not only done well, but it might have done extremely well to the point where it might have been 2019’s best-selling smartphone.

    This is a huge deal because for a phone released in 2018, it continued to dominate the whole of 2019. If the figures are accurate, Apple might have

  • Hilary Duff asks Disney to move Lizzie McGuire reboot to Hulu instead of Disney+

    New Disney CEO Bob Chapek has only been on the job for a few days, and he’s already got a controversy to deal with. Hilary Duff, whose career was launched by the Disney Channel series Lizzie McGuire, is asking the company to move the in-the-works reboot off of Disney Plus and onto Hulu instead. The actress and singer posted the request on her Instagram on Friday night.

    “Was incredibly excited to launch ‘Lizzie’ on D+ and my passion remains,” Duff wrote. “However, I feel a huge responsibility to honor the fans’ relationship with Lizzie who, like me, grew up seeing themselves in her. I’d be doing a disservice to everyone by limiting the realities of a 30-year-old’s journey to live under the ceiling of a PG rating.”

    Duff said it would “be a dream” if Disney approves the switch to Hulu, “and I could bring this beloved character

  • Shark Tank Host Got Phished Out Of $400,000

    Phishing scams are pretty common but for the most part, email service providers such as Gmail typically do a good job at filtering them out. However, it seems that Shark Tank host Barbara Corcoran recently fell prey to such a scam, which resulted in her potentially losing $400,000 after an erroneous wire transfer.

    According to Corcoran, she claims that someone who acted as her assistant sent her bookkeeper an invoice for a renovation project valued at close to $400,000. As Corcoran is an investor in real estate, this was not out of the ordinary which is why her bookkeeper did not think too much before wiring the money.

    However, it was later discovered that she was scammed when her bookkeeper reached out to her assistant in a follow-up email. It was then revealed that the email used was not her assistant’s email, but rather an email designed to look like
