The former mayor of Stockton, a city in California's Central Valley, is a strong proponent of universal basic income, a policy that essentially pays people for being alive as a way to alleviate poverty."My belief in it came from being raised by three amazing women, including my single mom," Tubbs told Insider. "The issue wasn't that they couldn't manage money. The...

The words "Business Insider".Two crossed lines that form an 'X'. It indicates a way to close an interaction, or dismiss a notification.Operation Warp Speed is, in essence, a risky bet: The US program is bankrolling the production of in large quantities before clinical trials are finished.

US coronavirus testing has dropped dramatically: a 13% decrease in 2 weeks. Public-health experts say the system is broken.

The words "Business Insider".Two crossed lines that form an 'X'. It indicates a way to close an interaction, or dismiss a notification.The US faced yet another coronavirus testing bottleneck this month, as high demand delayed results. In late July and early August, the country's biggest diagnostic companies, LabCorp and Quest, were taking a full week to return test results.By the time some people found out they had tested positive, they'd had plenty of time to spread the virus to others.This led healthcare facilities to get more selective about whom they tested. The result: The weekly...

A stunning NASA time-lapse reveals a decade of the sun's solar flares, sunspots, and shifting magnetic energy

The words "Business Insider".Two crossed lines that form an 'X'. It indicates a way to close an interaction, or dismiss a notification.A NASA spacecraft perched in Earth's orbit has been monitoring the sun for the last decade. That's one year shy of a full solar cycle — the time it takes for the sun's north and south poles to flip. Between June 2, 2010 and June 1, 2020, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured 425 million high-resolution images of our star. That's about one snapshot every 0.75 seconds, on average. The team recently compiled some of the footage into of the sun in...

In 2013, the entrepreneur founded The Ocean Cleanup, a nonprofit that aims to remove plastic from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a trash-filled vortex in the Pacific Ocean that's more than twice the size of Texas. The group designed a device that passively collects plastic in its fold like a giant arm. But the system has hit several snags, including a design and manufacturing flaw that caused the plastic to spill back into the ocean. More recently, plastic began flowing over the...

Scientists are still learning about the coronavirus outbreak that has killed 1,384 people and infected more than 64,000 in China. One of the biggest mysteries is why so few children have gotten sick. The outbreak was first reported on December 31, but no children younger than 15 years old had been diagnosed as of January 22. A study in the New England Journal of Medicine said at the time that "children might be less likely to become infected or, if infected, may show milder symptoms" than adults. Since then, doctors have recorded a handful of cases among children: A study of coronavirus...
