There is more sea ice in the Arctic this summer than there was two years ago in 2012, a fact that has led to misleading stories that imply that there's more uncertainty about what's happening in the Arctic than there actually is. But comparing right now to two years ago and drawing conclusions about climate from those isolated data points is like saying "it's cold outside, guess we don't have to worry about global warming." It's an absurd comparison that doesn't take into account all the available information.
Google announced Tuesday that it's rebranding its line of enterprise products — like Gmail for businesses and Google Cloud Platform — as "Google For Work" instead of the old, more unwieldy "Google Enterprise." In a blog post about the rebrand, Google executive chairman and former CEO Eric Schmidt writes that the company decided that it was time for the name to "catch up with our ambition," since Google caters its products to all types of work environments.
Washington (AFP) - The Islamic State released a video on Tuesday showing a masked militant beheading another American journalist and threatening to kill a British captive. The footage, identified by private terrorism monitor SITE and seen by AFP, shows 31-year-old freelance writer Steven Sotloff dressed in orange and on his knees in a desert landscape.

Paris (AFP) - France's scorned former first lady Valerie Trierweiler is set to lift the lid on her tumultuous relationship with the president on Thursday in what could prove an explosive memoir. Trierweiler, a journalist, was dumped unceremoniously by Francois Hollande in January after a magazine revealed his affair with actress Julie Gayet, and has since remained broadly silent about an event she once said had felt like falling "from a skyscraper."But the 49-year-old had all along been secretly writing a book about her years-long relationship with the Socialist leader, which comes out on Thursday and does not "spare" Hollande, according to parliamentary channel LCP which broke the news."Everything I write is true," she writes on the cover of the book, called "Thank You For This Moment" and unveiled in Paris-Match, a glossy magazine for which she used to be a political reporter and still contributes to."At the Elysee (presidential palace), I sometimes felt as if I was on a story.
