This is what happens to internal organs during a pregnancy



Turns out pregnancy is mildly horrifying when you consider what’s really going on inside the pregnant body.

Take for example this telling GIF of how internal organs shift to make room for a baby in a woman’s uterus

The GIF, making the rounds on Imgur and Reddit, comes from an interactive tool from the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. The tool allows users to follow the pregnant body as it changes from conception to post-pregnancy

In that time, pregnancy pumps the heart harder, squeezes the organs and loosens the muscles and joints. Terrifying? We think so Read more…

Mapping Freddie Gray's deadly 45 minutes in the back of a police van



When police officers shoved a black Baltimore resident named Freddie Gray into the back of a van on the morning of April 12, one of his legs appeared limp but he was able to speak. On a video, he can be heard screaming in pain.

By the time officers transferred Gray to Shock Trauma at the University of Maryland Medical Center, the 25-year-old had a smashed voice box and was apparently fighting for his life.

Gray died a week later, and Baltimore residents have led protest against police brutality ever since — some erupting into riots featuring looting and fires

Your first, impressive peek at the next generation of gaming graphics



Forget Call of DutyMetal Gear Solid and the rest of 2015’s blockbuster video games. The best graphics out there debuted during the Microsoft Build Developer Conference this week, and they come from a tech demo produced by Final Fantasy publisher Square Enix.

Witch Chapter 0 [cry] is a brief sequence that features a crying woman in a vaguely fantastical mountain landscape. At a glance, it looks no better or worse than the pre-rendered cutscenes you’ve come to expect for story-driven games in this day and age.

The thing is, it’s not pre-rendered. A pure cutscene is analogous with the sort of CG films created by Pixar or Dreamworks Animation. Everything from the characters and environment to camera angle and visual effects are constructs, positioned and set in motion according to a script. Read more…

A 6th-grader cut off Obama when his answer got too long



Sixth grader Osman Yahya may not have much experience interviewing world leaders, but his confidence gives him an edge over some seasoned professionals.

The bold middle school student from Salisbury, Maryland, moderated a Q&A with President Barack Obama as part of Discovery Education’s virtual field trip.

The leader of the free world sat down with Yahya to discuss his passion for writing and reading, but the sixth-grader had no patience for the president’s babbling. When POTUS started to repeat himself, Yahya cut him off: “I think you’ve sort of covered everything about that question.”

CNN should offer this kid a moderating gig. Read more…
