Study: Roundup Weed Killer Could Be Linked To Widespread Bee Deaths

The controversial herbicide Roundup has been accused of causing cancer in humans and now scientists in Texas argue that the world's most popular weed killer could be partly responsible for killing off bee populations around the world. A new study by scientists at the University of Texas at Austin posit that glyphosate — the active ingredient in the herbicide — destroys specialized gut bacteria in bees, leaving them more susceptible to infection and death from harmful bacteria. Researchers Nancy Moran, Erick Motta and Kasie Raymann suggest their findings are evidence that glyphosate might be contributing to colony collapse disorder , a phenomenon that has been wreaking havoc on honey bees and native bees for more than a decade. They hope their results will convince farmers, landscapers and homeowners to stop spraying glyphosate-based herbicides on flowering plants that are likely to be pollinated by bees. "We need better guidelines for glyphosate use, especially regarding bee exposure,

Doctors With Criminal Records Examined Immigrants, Report Says

Some physicians who examined immigrants while working for the federal government had histories of diluting vaccinations, exploiting women and hiring a hit man to kill a dissatisfied patient, according to a scathing report released by the Department of Homeland Security's internal watchdog. The findings , released Friday by the Office of Inspector General, said the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services "designated physicians with a history of patient abuse or a criminal record as civil surgeons." Investigators, using site visits and records from October 2013 to June 2017, concluded that the agency lacked strong policies as officers made decisions about doctors who had applied to become what the department calls civil surgeons. When immigrants in the United States apply for permanent resident status, they are required to undergo a medical examination by a civil surgeon. The doctor gives the sealed results of the exam to the applicant, and then an official reviews the form.

Tracking Down Fake Videos

Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit MARY LOUISE KELLY, HOST: Also in all Tech Considered, we continue our look this month at the many ways tech can be used to influence or undermine democracy. Today - deep fake videos. AUDIE CORNISH, HOST: The Defense Department considers them enough of a concern that it's working with outside experts on ways to detect them and prevent them from being made. Hany Farid is a computer science professor at Dartmouth College involved in the project. Welcome to ALL THINGS CONSIDERED. HANY FARID: It's good to be here. CORNISH: We're talking about videos on the radio, so I'll need a little explanation. And here is a clip of a video that you've chosen for us. And we'll play it first, and then you can tell us what's going on. (SOUNDBITE OF VIDEO) JORDAN PEELE: (As Barack Obama) We're entering an era in which our enemies can make it look like anyone is saying anything at any point in time, even if they would never say those things. So, for instance, they could

Instagram Founders Ditch Facebook

Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit AUDIE CORNISH, HOST: I'm Audie Cornish with All Tech Considered. (SOUNDBITE OF ULRICH SCHNAUSS' "NOTHING HAPPENS IN JUNE") CORNISH: First some news - the two founders of the photo sharing app Instagram are stepping down. Instagram is owned by Facebook, and it's become a rare bright spot at a time of trouble for the social media giant. NPR's Jasmine Garsd has more. JASMINE GARSD, BYLINE: In an interview with Bloomberg, Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom reminisced about the moment they launched in 2010. (SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING) KEVIN SYSTROM: I had worked at other companies that struggled to get a hundred people to sign up in a day, and that first morning or actually that first day, we had 25,000 people sign up. And I remember, like, my eyes were wide. I was like, I have never seen a service grow that quickly day one. GARSD: Facebook's purchase of Instagram in 2012 was kind of the Louisiana Purchase of tech. They bought it for $715 million when

The Five Lives Of 'Tha Carter V'

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKWrzGKZoaQ For a half-decade or more, he stood as hip-hop's tatted-up anomaly, the self-professed monster who ate rappers for breakfast while inhabiting a universe of his own creation. But in the time since Lil Wayne 's late-2000s breakthrough, when platinum albums and a flood of mixtapes tipped him into cultural ubiquity, nothing has done as much to keep his legend alive as the music he didn't release. After years of creative, financial and legal struggles with his industry daddy Bryan "Baby" Williams, the rapper reached a settlement this summer freeing him from his longtime label Cash Money and clearing the way for him to release the album fans have awaited since 2011, when the last installment of his Carter series fell on ambivalent ears. Today, after years of rumor and speculation, the case was closed in a message from the man himself. Tha Carter V is scheduled to arrive the night of Sept. 27 — Wayne's 36th birthday — along with a decade's worth of
