It’s their first album without departed guitarist Nick McCarthy, and with new member Julian Corrie, who adds...

Even in retirement, Chimp the robot’s still got it. The giant red humanoid crouches down like a Transformer to roll on all fours, then stands up and slowly approaches a door.

Two and a half years after Chimp competed in the Darpa Robotics Challenge, it remains one of the weirdest humanoid robots on Earth. But that...

Ratings for the 2018 Grammys slipped over 20 percent from last year’s event, putting Music’s Biggest Night in danger of securing its lowest ratings in modern history.
