Devastated by wildfires last year and with ongoing dry weather increasing the risk of further blazes, communities around Lake Tahoe made the decision to swap fireworks for drones for this year’s Fourth of July celebrations.
With fireworks causing thousands of accidental fires every year on July 4, local residents are all too aware that the fire risk is even higher when the ground is so dry.
The situation prompted organizers to switch to drones for dazzling light displays at Lake Tahoe’s Kin
Top-ranked Iga Swiatek was unbeaten since February and sure seemed unbeatable, compiling 37 consecutive match wins and six consecutive tournament titles.

"I know I didn't play good tennis. I was pretty confused about my tactics," said Swiatek, a two-time French Open champion who has never advan

Without the ability to feel pain, life is more dangerous. To avoid injury, pain tells us to use a hammer more gently, wait for the soup to cool, or put on gloves in a snowball fight. Those with rare inherited disorders that leave them without the ability to feel pain are unable to protect themselves from environmental threats, leading to broken bones, damaged skin, infections, and ultimately a shorter life span.

The huge success of the Mars helicopter Ingenuity has proven it’s possible to explore other planets from the air, and researchers are working on a variety of flying craft concepts for future planetary missions. To fill in our knowledge of Mars between rovers on the surface and orbiters in space, researchers from the University of Arizona have proposed an experimental sailplane that operates without a motor and that could sail through the Martian air for days at a time.

Nick Kyrgios has hit back at Stefanos Tsitsipas, calling the Greek superstar "soft" after he was accused of "bullying" opponents and having a "very evil side".
Tsitsipas, the no.4 seed in the Wimbledon men's singles draw, was bundled out in an epic four-setter between the two men, but the match was not without controversy, as is often the case when Kyrgios is involved.
The drama kicked off at the end of the second set, when a frustrated Tsitsipas whacked a ball into the stands after the Aussie
