A mysterious epidemic that killed millions of people in 16th century Mexico may be linked to a rare strain of Salmonella, a new DNA analysis reveals. The discovery is the best clue yet to the cause of a devastating infection that killed up to 80 percent of Mexico’s native population between 1545 and 1550 — spreading to Guatemala, and possibly as far south as Peru.
At the time, no one had ever seen anything like this disease: it made its victims bleed from their faces. Medical texts from the period show stacks of corpses and people speckled by rashes, gushing blood from their noses. Indigenous peoples called it “huey cocoliztli,” or great pestilence. Spanish invaders named it “pujamiento de sangre,” which translates to abundant bleeding…

Mercedes-Benz has redefined the G-Wagen. On Sunday, it revealed the the 2019 G550 during the Detroit Auto Show. While the exterior looks much the same as the big, boxy icon, it’s finally a remade vehicle with modern technology. Like your remodeled Palm Springs midcentury house, its up-to-date inside. That’s important, given that Mercedes’ most upmarket customers pick this car over any other SUV in their lineup. It’s a retro-looking unapologetic car that actually works in the modern-tech world.
When it comes to the interior UX, the 2019 G-Wagen has all the updated entertainment features, despite its classic rough exterior. Its voice assistant has two TFT screens, and makes it feel like a modern car on the…

In 2014, Fox rebooted Carl Sagan’s classic documentary series, Cosmos: A Personal Journey, with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson as host. Four years later, Fox and National Geographic have announced they will be bringing the series back for a second season, titled Possible Worlds.
The networks made the announcement today during the Television Critics Association winter press tour, and deGrasse Tyson and producer Seth McFarland confirmed the news on Twitter, saying that the season will air in Spring 2019 on Fox and the National Geographic channel.
Sagan hosted the original Cosmos in 1980, which was at the time the most successful US public TV series of all time (it was later overtaken by Ken Burns’ documentary The Civil War). The…

After a monster “bomb cyclone” and frigid Arctic blasts that set some new records on the US East Coast, temperatures have been a bit more merciful this week. And that’s setting the stage for some pretty cool phenomena — like this ice jam on the Ausable River in Au Sable Forks, located in upstate New York.
In a time lapse video posted on Twitter by the National Weather Service office in Burlington, Vermont, you can see the frozen river very quickly rise up, and then break up into chunks almost out of the blue. The chaotic mess of ice and tree branches then flows downstream, bringing the river level back down. The whole video condenses three hours of footage, taken today by a NWS webcam that runs 24/7.

Bungie today released the first substantial Destiny 2 update roadmap for the new year, after pledging in late November to communicate more with the game’s community and fix longstanding issues that have riled fans since the title’s launch in September. Contained in the blog post are a far-reaching series of planned changes, additions, and tweaks. But perhaps none are quite as important as the planned alterations to the game’s loot box system, called Eververse, which lets players pay money for slot machine-style “engrams” that randomly contain coveted cosmetic items.
“We recognize that the scales are tipped too far towards Tess at the moment, and Eververse was never intended to be a substitute for end game content and rewards,” writes…
