It turns out that many people aren't afraid of fallout from Ashley Madison's high-profile data breach, with "hundreds of thousands" of new members reportedly signing up for the site in the past week. In addition, 87,596 women also signed up for the infidelity website, according to Avid Life officials.

"Last week alone, women sent more than 2.8 million messages within our platform," according to Avid Life Media.

 

"Recent media reports predicting the imminent demise of Ashley Madison are greatly exaggerated. Despite having our business and customers attacked, we are growing." However, CEO Noel Biderman stepped down as head of the company, and additional shakeups are possible - though it looks like a bit of notoriety could be helping the website.

Astronauts believe it's only a matter of time before man heads to Mars

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Science, Space & Robotics | Posted: 7 hours, 10 mins ago

Space agencies have shown a great interest in manned missions to Mars, even though the technology and resources available will need to greatly advance in coming years. Some critics wonder if we should try to send humans to a planet so far away - especially since Earth and Mars were 34.8 million miles apart at their known closest pass to one another.

However, the European Space Agency (ESA) feels like mankind has the ambition - and evolving technological prowess - to make a manned mission possible. It would take up to 10 months to reach the Red Planet, and a crew could stay up to one year, and then take up to 10 months to make a return trip home again.

 

"Humans will go to Mars, I'm very sure of this," said Alexander Gerst, an astronaut for the ESA, in a statement published by Euronews. "You just have to look back in human history and you'll know. As soon as we learned to build ships, we took them not only to go to the next island, we took them to sail over the horizon."

During IGN's PAX 2015 panel, Bungie dev Luke Smith revealed that Destiny's interstellar merchant, Xur, will have a new buff that will make it rain exotics: "What Xur has on him is an item that lets you basically gamble the chance to find an exotic on the next enemy you kill."

 

"Xur's still going to show up every week, he's still going to sell some amount of exotics," Luke Smith iterated when asked how the infamous Agent of the Nine might change in the new expansion. "But now he's got a new mechanic that we're not talking too much about yet, but it's a new way for you to sort of gamble and get exotics out in the world. We're pretty excited about this."

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Social Networking | Posted: 8 hours, 15 mins ago

The UK government wants to be a bit more proactive in discussing its strategy to counter the spread of the Islamic State, and is using the @UKAgainstISIL Twitter account to help share that message.

The Foreign Office officially launched the account last Thursday, and will share "updates on the UK government's ongoing work to defeat Isil." The group is sharing updates regarding airstrikes, condemn the Islamic State's activities, and share information on how to defend against the group.

 

"The government is very well aware of the fact that it doesn't have the ability to say things that will resonate with extremist Islamists," said Charlie Winter, senior researcher at the Quilliam Foundation, in a statement published by The Guardian.
