Archaeologists investigating human bones excavated from the deserted mediaeval village of Wharram Percy in North Yorkshire have suggested that the villagers burned and mutilated corpses to prevent the dead from rising from their graves to terrorise the living.

The secret behind cephalopod intelligence: biscuits

OK, this quote is, I admit, the product of a twitterbot producing Not New Scientist headlines, but it is from this week (otherwise I might have chosen "Tomorrow's technology today: self-driving honey badgers"), and it's frankly no crazier than some of the stuff currently being burped by the media …

Cassini’s chemistry analysis strongly suggests the Enceladean seafloor has hot fluid vents - places that on Earth are known to teem with life.
It'd be very cool if that is the case!

Turkey's referendum process was held on an "unlevel playing field", with campaigning restrictions and late procedural changes, monitors say. Opposition events were obstructed and state resources misused, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) said.
No surprises there!

It takes some balls to announce a general election whilst you're still under investigation for fraud in the last one.

Pear Technology, which produces digital mapping software and services, applied for the pear logo in 2014 and was almost immediately challenged by Apple, which claimed it was confusingly similar to its own apple-with-a-bite-out-of-it silhouette logo.

France has banned the breeding in captivity of dolphins and killer whales, in a move hailed by campaigners as a major victory.

just because they are not breeding doesnt mean they still wont have them..... also there is no way that current captive dolphins could be let into the wild.....
