Though farmers are already struggling with operating costs – including fertilizer and fuel – Deere wants to sell software subscriptions for operating its ever smarter vehicles.

Moonshot plan looks to recreate lunar experience on Earth

Bringing to mind the MSG Sphere London, Moon – as it's officially named – would take a spherical form that mimics our lunar neighbor. It would be situated on top of a disc-shaped podium structure and rise to an overall height of 224 m (735 ft). Structurally, it would consist of concrete, steel and glass, plus aluminum and carbon fiber.

Study: More Than 335,000 Lives Could Have Been Saved During Pandemic if U.S. Had Universal Health Care


In the United States, death rates from COVID-19 are higher than in any other high-income country—and our fragmented and inefficient health system may be largely to blame, Yale researchers say in a new study.

If the U.S. had had a single-payer universal health care system in 2020, nearly 212,000 American lives would have been saved that year, according to a new study. In addition, the country would have saved $105 billion in COVID-19 hospitalization expenses alone.
