The Daily Word in Electronic Voting Machines, The Summer Olympics and Neutron Star Collisions

The Daily Word

A neutron star collision is more than just a smash hit by Muse. Physicists are studying gravitational waves in these collisions, hoping that since two colliding black holes can produce gravitational waves, two colliding neutron stars might be able to as well. Detecting these waves would helps scientists understand quark matter, something that is currently pretty mysterious.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child marks the end of one boy wizard's journey. J.K. Rowling's latest novel, which was the most pre-ordered book of the year and is currently the script for a play in London, depicts the famous Harry as a 37-year-old father and gracefully closes the door on the strange, fantastical world that has been alive for the better part of two decades.

Over 40 people were injured in Kosovo while attending a beer festival after someone in the crowd shouted “ISIS” as a “joke.”

Critics are skeptical of Brazil's level of preparation for the quickly approaching Olympic games. The nation failed to keep their promise of treating 80% of sewage entering the once clear and beautiful--and now entirely polluted--Guanabara Bay. Polluted water is just one concern being raised, another being high crime.

On its latest operating system, Apple has decided to replace the black pistol emoji with a green water gun after social media posts containing the old gun emoji were reported by police as threats.

Deciding to use electronic voting machines in major elections was a step up from punchcards, but supplied more than a handful of new problems. The GOP presidential candidate has expressed that the upcoming election will be "rigged." One way to do that? Hacking electronic voting machines.
