    Closest potentially habitable planet to our solar system found

    In a discovery that has been years in the making, researchers have confirmed the existence of a rocky planet named Proxima b orbiting Proxima Centauri, the closest star to our sun, according to a new study. It is the closest exoplanet to us in the universe. Given the fact that Proxima b is within the habitable zone of its star, meaning liquid water could exist on the surface, it may also be the closest possible home for life outside of […]

    NOAA Fisheries propose ban on swimming with dolphins

    HAWAII– NOAA Fisheries is proposing a ban that could bring an end to the popular tourist attraction of swimming with Hawaiian spinner dolphins. Officials say the current interaction with humans is depriving the nocturnal animals of the rest they need. “During the day, they’re resting in near-shore waters, so it makes them very vulnerable to dolphin-directed activities,” said Ann Garrett, assistant regional administrator for the National Marine Fisheries Service. “They may abandon their habitat and have increasing health problems.

    Chipotle under fire for illegal workplace policies

    NEW YORK– Federal regulators have taken a red pen to Chipotle’s employee handbook, saying several policies violated labor laws. The National Labor Relations Board said in a recent decision that Chipotle has to amend four rules that are illegal because they can “chill employees” from exercising their collective bargaining rights. The ruling has implications for what workers everywhere are allowed to say on social media. The Chipotle policies that the NLRB took issue with are: Its confidentiality policy that “unlawfully […]
