Ted Cruz is the Zodiac killer: the anatomy of a meme gone rogue



A recent poll revealed that 38% of Floridian voters believed that Ted Cruz might actually be the Zodiac killer. Enough said

The year was 2013. It was a more innocent time in conservative America. No primary candidates had declared themselves, Donald Trump was still safely tucked away in a reality show, and Senator Ted Cruz gave the keynote speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference, the Republican Lollapalooza.

His speech was mostly forgettable, arguing that Republican success was inevitable if they simply bullied the Democrats hard enough. He salted it with references to pop culture and firmly denied that he was a wacko bird, as John McCain had recently alleged. He cracked a weird joke comparing a newly svelte Newt Gingrich to Anne Hathaways character in Les Miserables.

Fallout 4: how to build the perfect settlement



Surviving in the post-apocalyptic wasteland is no longer enough you also need a nice place to live. We can help you build it

In a lot of ways Fallout 4 feels very familiar to its predecessor youre still wandering a ruined US shooting mutants and collecting stuff. However, one significant improvement is the ability to tidy up parts of this disorderly wasteland and make them liveable. Popular with players who like simulation and resource management games, and compulsory if your chosen path through the main plot involves siding with the Minutemen, settlement building is a major part of Bethesdas newest role-playing adventure.

However, while the system is impressive, the interface is fiddly. If you find yourself several hours into the game and wanting to rebuild your first few hamlets from scratch, you may have a laborious process ahead.

Baby boys and girls receive different nutrients in breast milk



A mother's milk may contain different levels of nutrients depending on the sex of her baby to meet different growth needs

I wish I didn't have to rely on Google to help me breastfeed

Baby formula should be tailored for boys and girls to reflect the differences in milk that mothers produce depending on their baby's sex, researchers say.

James DeGale: 'Boxing is a lonely game but I've got a great family'



Olympic champion learns to deal with triumph and tragedy as he prepares for only his eighth professional fight

James DeGale rolls out of bed and pads across his bedroom to pull on a pair of shorts and a T-Shirt. He can hear his mother, Diane, yelling cheerfully to me above the sound of her doing the housework in her pyjamas. "I've managed to wake him," she hollers. On cue, the Olympic gold-medal winning boxer, who is preparing for his eighth professional fight, opens his door. He looks briefly like a giant baby, grinning goofily and blinking blearily, as he toddles my way.

"James, are you up?" his mum calls out again from the kitchen.
