SANAA, Dec 4, (Agencies): A Houthi delegation left for Sweden on Tuesday for UNsponsored Yemen peace talks, the first since 2016, as Western nations press for an end to the war and the United Nations warned of a looming economic disaster.

Razer Blade Stealth updated with a refreshed design, 4K screen, and Windows Hello

Razer is updating one of its most recognizable laptops, the 13.3-inch Blade Stealth, with a new chassis and specs. The updated Blade Stealth can be configured as a full HD, battery-conscious laptop or a 4K touchscreen machine with discrete graphics. Ultimately, this is going to be Razer’s most portable and affordable laptop, putting it in direct competition with machines from Apple and Dell. The big deal with the Stealth’s fall refresh is its changing footprint. At first glance, I thought the new Blade Stealth was smaller than the previous generation, until I placed them side by side.

Slate blasted for odd story on George H.W. Bush’s dog Sully: After Slate ran a story titled “Don’t Spend Your Emotional Energy on Sully H.W. Bush,” readers and other publications criticized the move, with one animal lover tweeting, “You had to pick on a service dog?” The article was “barking mad,” said a Huffington Post report.

The dog, named after the pilot who saved his passengers by landing his damaged plane in the Hudson...

They can be politically significant, too. The more than 500 objects dating from the 19th century to the present are on display from...

How Facebook Groups sparked a crisis in France

Over the weekend, violence broke out in France, with more than 280,000 protesters fanning out across the country in what is known as the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vests) movement. What started as a reaction against a hike in the country’s gasoline tax has metastasized into something uglier. More than 400 people have been injured across some 2,000 rallies, and one person was killed after being run over by a car. In CityLab, Feargus O’Sullivan attempts to describe a rather amorphous protest: Unusually, the Yellow Vests is a grassroots mass protest movement with no explicit wider political agenda or links to...
