The Senate just voted to overturn the regulations on internet privacy. The governance was put in place by the FCC under the Obama administration. The regulations were to disallow internet service providers (ISP) from selling private information based on an individual’s browsing history. This data would be collected from sites that people visited in their browser and the apps that they use on their phone or tablet.

The planet was discovered amongst rocky debris in a system named SDSS 1557 – between two stars, a white dwarf and a brown dwarf – some 1,000 light years away.
The University College London (UCL) took part in the study and said that “the debris appears to be rocky and suggests that terrestrial planets like Tatooine…. might exist in the system.” Terrestrial planets are planets that are usually rocky, [...]
