When Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella announced some 18,000 job cuts on Thursday, he noted in a memo to employees that most of them (between 12,000 and 13,000) would come from the former Nokia.

That leaves 5,000 cuts on the table, all of which have to come from various parts of Microsoft. When queried about targets, one Microsoft representative said they would come “across functions and geographies.” That could mean anyone and anything within the Microsoft sphere.

The reality, though, turned out to be somewhat more specific.

By Thursday afternoon, Xbox head Phil Spencer sent his team an internal memo (obtained by The Verge) that announced the shuttering of the still-new Xbox Entertainment StudiosRecode estimated that will be a cut of nearly 200 jobs, meaning that Microsoft will outsource all ...

A huge, 262-foot crater has been discovered in Yamal — a region north of Siberia whose name means ‘end of the world’ — and scientists are unsure how it happened, The Siberian Times reports

The Siberian Times reports that a team of scientists was dispatched on Wednesday to survey the hole in the ground, which is believed to have formed two years ago. They will take samples of soil, water and air from the location

One of the seemingly obvious causes for the gigantic crater is a meteorite, but this does not seem to be the case

“We can definitely say that it is not a meteorite,” said a spokesman for the Russian ministry’s Yamal branch, without giving any further details Read more…

College rape survivors and activists have claimed for years that schools fail to fully investigate sexual assaults and offer survivors adequate support — and a survey of 440 four-year institutions by the office of Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) backs up these assertions.

Among other shortcomings, the report, released last Wednesday, finds widespread disregard for federal law and Title IX regulations in reporting and investigation practices. It also finds the phenomenon of athletic departments investigating allegations against their own student athletes to be common practice.

“The report really confirms what survivors have been saying for years now...

UP 3.2 takes some of the tedium out of keeping track of your meal. Before today, UP users had to manually enter every meal item, searching Jawbone’s database for the type of food, then entering portion size. For. Every. Damn. Thing.

With the update (available now), users will have an easier time counting calories. For starters, the app suggests both your recent entries as well as common meal pairings; enter a fried egg, and you’ll see suggestions to add toast, coffee and bacon.
