Current approaches to cranial surgery are painstaking, requiring a surgeon to use a hand-drill and carefully clear intricate openings in the skull to access the brain. Researchers at the University of Utah say they have come up with a much more efficient way of doing things, developing a robotic drill that could cut operation times by hours and reduce the risk of infection throughout.

This 750-Year-Old Secret Reveals How Soy Sauce Is Still Made Today

Sure, soy sauce is one of the most common condiments used when eating asian cuisine, but just because it is frequently consumed, this doesn’t mean that the exact recipe behind the fermented paste of boiled soybeans, roasted grain, brine, and Aspergillus oryzae or Aspergillus sojae molds is well known. This short film by Mile Nagaoka in turn details how soy sauce has been made for 750 years.

The origin of soy sauce is Yuasa Town, which is still where its made today, while the production method actually hasn’t changed for centuries as well.

The Game Sues Viacom for $20 Million Over Sexual Assault Verdict

The Game has filed a $20 million negligence lawsuit against Viacom. The rapper recently paid $7.1 million to the company following a sexual assault case in connection to his now-defunct VH1 reality show, She’s Got Game. The rapper, real name Jayceon Taylor, alleges Viacom failed to protect him against contestant Priscilla Rainey, who accused Taylor of sexually assaulting her during an “after hours date,” according to the Hollywood Reporter

In November 2016, a jury ruled in Rainey’s favor and awarded her $7.1 million. In a new complaint filed Monday in a California federal court, Taylor (the Game) argues that the network failed to ensure contestants were suitable to compete on the program. The suit alleges that Rainey passed a psychological exam during the casting process, but the doctor approved her without seeing court documents detailing her criminal past. 

The complaint states that Viacom “chose ratings over protecting the Plaintiff and others,” given that they “had knowledge of Rainey’s violent and extensive arrest history.” It also asserts that “Defendants knew, or should have known, that Rainey was Baker Acted in 2012,” referring to Florida’s Mental Health Act of 1971, which permits the involuntary institutionalization of an individual.

The lawsuit cites multiple “troublesome incidents on the show,” including “acts of intimidation, verbal abuse, as well as instances of physical violence and threats.” These allegedly included Rainey “[threatening] to cut off the hair of another contestant while she slept.”

In addition to his claims of negligence, the 1992 rapper also brought counts for negligent misrepresentation, negligent misrepresentation, negligent infliction of emotional distress and breach of fiduciary duty.

Representatives for Viacom and the Game declined to comment.

Google Maps, Amazon, and eBay Drop Apple Watch Support [Updated]

Over the course of the last few months, several major companies have quietly removed support for the Apple Watch from their apps. As first noted by AppleInsider, Google Maps, Amazon, and eBay have pulled their Apple Watch apps from the App Store.



Google Maps, Amazon, and eBay were all early supporters of the Apple Watch, releasing apps within a few months of the device’s April 2015 debut.






Checking today, none of the three companies offer Apple Watch apps, having quietly removed Apple Watch functionality through App Store updates. It’s not entirely clear when each app was updated to remove Apple Watch support, with the feature elimination appearing to have largely gone under the radar.



That three major apps were able to remove Apple Watch support without much fanfare seems to explain the reasoning behind the decision to cease offering an Apple Watch app, as it suggests there weren’t many people using the apps in question. Whether the removal of the apps is permanent is unknown.



Google Maps was perhaps the only app that was useful on the wrist, with quick directions to places like home and work. Amazon’s Apple Watch app simply allowed for voice-based searches and one-tap purchases, something that’s easier to do on a phone or computer, while eBay’s offered notifications for auctions being tracked on the site, which also required the concurrent use of an iPhone or Mac to track content in the first place.



Target has also recently removed Apple Watch support from its Target app, but Apple Watch functionality remains available via the separate Cartwheel by Target app.



With the Apple Watch having celebrated its second birthday on April 24, the kinds of apps that work on the wrist-worn device are becoming more clear, allowing companies to stop using resources on content that’s not suitable for a wearable device.



Update: In a statement, a Google spokesperson said the Apple Watch app has been temporarily removed but will be re-launched later. “We removed Apple Watch support from our latest iOS release but expect to support it again in the future.”
