He was the American version of Doctor Who‘s The Doctor, really, only minus the sci-fi elements. The 2016 version of MacGyver, though, doesn’t have the same virtue. ...

  • NASA set to reveal 'surprising' activity on Jupiter's moon

    There's something going on beneath the surface of Jupiter's icy moon Europa. NASA teased a "surprising" announcement for Monday, based on Hubble Space Telescope images of the celestial body, which many experts believe could contain a subsurface ocean, even possibly some form of life. The US space agency has already proclaimed that Europa has "strong evidence for an ocean of liquid water beneath its crust and which could host conditions favorable for life." At Monday's announcement, "astronomers will present results from a unique Europa observing campaign that resulted in surprising evidence of activity that may be related to the presence of a subsurface ocean," it said in a statement.

  • Room for improvement: Paris's matchbox apartments

    In a city where it is notoriously difficult to find a flat -- especially on a low budget and without the right paperwork -- many rooms that once served as domestic helpers' sleeping quarters have been turned into apartments for rent. It is borderline illegal to rent out these micro-apartments, typically wedged under a rooftop, as they measure less than nine square metres (100 square feet) and often lack proper ventilation. "I don't have a guarantor, no relatives in Paris, and I have a foreign accent," says Lopez, a 35-year-old of Mexican origin who rents a room measuring just 6.8 square metres for 370 euros ($415) a month.

  • Tottenham's Son sinks Middlesbrough with double

    Son Heung-Min surely erased all doubts about his Tottenham future as his double inspired a 2-1 victory at Middlesbrough in the Premier League on Saturday. South Korean winger Son was reported to be unsettled after starting only 13 league games for Tottenham last season, but his two goals in their latest success indicated the qualities that prompted them to sign him from Bayer Leverkusen 13 months ago. Middlesbrough, who slipped to their third successive defeat after an encouraging start on their return to the top light, did hint at a revival when Ben Gibson scored midway through the second-half, but Tottenham held on for a deserved success.
