The ballad of Brooklyn-bred rapper Bobby Shmurda is a surreal tale of meteoric rise turned upside-down, nearly as fast as it started. One smash-mouth hit, one viral dance craze, and a newly-inked record deal were all whipped away by a prison sentence for drug and gun charges.
That alone is wild enough for its own full-length GQ feature. But Wednesday, the tale took a wild turn, with the revelation that Palantir, a big data software giant co-founded by Silicon Valley villain Peter Thiel, essentially paved the way to put Shmurda behind bars, according to a feature Buzzfeed published Wednesday.

As far as NBA trades go, this one was a snoozer.
But the way the Portland Trail Blazers played it on Twitter was downright brilliant.
Portland traded guard Tim Quarterman and his 1.9 points per game to the Houston Rockets for "cash considerations" in a move announced Wednesday.

Is ransomware still ransomware if its goal is purely to destroy?
This is less if-a-tree-falls hypothetical and more sobering reality for the untold number of people across the globe whose computer systems have been infected with the NotPetya ransomware. That's because the latest digital scourge to cripple computer networks in 65 countries (and counting) doesn't fit the typical ransomware mold.

Canuck the crow, who is identifiable to locals because of a red tag on its ankle, has been causing trouble in the area for a long time apparently. His long list of troublesome behavior includes everything from riding the SkyTrain to evidence tampering.
Canada Post spokeswoman Darcia Kmet told the BBC: "Regular mail delivery was suspended to three homes due to it being unsafe for our employees. We are monitoring the situation when delivering the mail to other residents on the street. If our employees believe it is safe to deliver to those three addresses, they do so."

Sure, NASA has found signs of ancient water on Mars multiple times over the years, but now it's time to talk about something that's significantly more badass: molten Martian lava.
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has taken photos of a part of the red planet that once played host to huge multi-tiered falls of lava that cascaded into a crater.
The images even show off the (now dried) circular flow of lava at the base of the falls, where the molten rock fanned outward on the crater's floor, NASA said.
"The lava flows and falls are distinct as they are rougher than the original features that are smooth and knobby," NASA said in a statement, referring to the features as the "Niagara Falls of Mars." Read more...More about Space, Nasa, Science, Mars, and Space Photos
