A $1 million reward for credible information leading to the pair of slippers A $1 million reward has been offered by an anonymous donor for credible information leading to the pair of Judy Garland’s famous sequined, ruby red slippers stolen from a museum in her Minnesota hometown.

10 Reasons to Give Up Diet Soda In their study, Tufts University researchers defined “sugar-sweetened beverages” as any sodas, iced teas, fruit drinks, sport or energy drinks, or homemade drinks containing added sugars. They found that sugary drinks are estimated to cause 184,000 deaths worldwide each year: approximately 133,000 from diabetes, 45,000 from cardiovascular disease, and 6,450 from cancers.

Gadget reads brainwaves to select programmes on iPlayer Arguments over the remote control could soon be a thing of the past as the BBC has teamed up with tech company This Place to produce a headset that uses ‘mind control’ to select programmes. The prototype has been designed to work with an experimental version of the BBC’s iPlayer catch-up service. The brainwave-reading gadget enables viewers to turn on and operate the app by concentrating or relaxing their minds, choosing either ‘meditation’ or ‘attention’ on the player.

If further trials are successful, the technology could be used by people with a range of disabilities that prev
