What makes a good speller (or a bad one)?

By the time he was 6 or 7 years old, Sameer Mishra was a pretty confident speller. His memory was sharp, he liked to read, and he actually enjoyed the weekly tests at school. While his parents drilled his older sister, a National Spelling Bee competitor, he’d angle for his own list of words.

Improved fingerprinting tech could catch elephant poachers

Law enforcement agencies have gotten pretty good at intercepting illegal shipments of ivory, using the confiscated tusks from poached African elephants to demonstrate they are cracking down on this illicit trade. But they have been less successful at finding the culprits behind the shipments – partly because it has been impossible to retrieve fingerprints from the ivory.

iPhone 6s Plus vs. Galaxy Note 5: Real world performance test (it's not even close)

Enthusiastic Android fans have historically relied pretty heavily on benchmark test scores when making the case against Apple’s iPhone lineup. This “fight” is ridiculous to begin with, of course, but relying on benchmark scores that don’t even represent real world performance is even sillier. Of course, many of these fanboys came around to agree with that line of thinking on benchmarks once iPhones started to crush the competition in benchmark performance tests, beginning with the iPhone 5s and continuing right up to this year’s iPhone 6s.
