An overcome Oscar Pistorius vomited in court on Monday as he listened to harrowing expert testimony about the autopsy of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, whom he is accused of murdering. Sitting in the dock, a clearly emotional Pistorius retched and heaved as University of Pretoria pathologist Gert Saayman gave an account of the multiple bullet wounds Pistorius admits inflicting. Pistorius says he fired four shots at Steenkamp on February 14, 2013 through a locked toilet door, believing her to be an intruder. Saayman -- whose testimony the media has been banned from directly reporting -- told the court how Steenkamp was struck four times with bullets from Pistorius's nine millimetre pistol.

Ukraine sought urgent Western backing on Monday after Russian President Vladimir Putin insisted that Crimea had the right to join his country even while hinting at a readiness for dialogue. The pro-European team in Kiev that rode the wave of three months of deadly protests to topple a Kremlin-backed regime is running against the clock to preserve the territorial integrity of the culturally splintered nation of 46 million. The self-declared leadership on the predominantly ethnic Russian peninsula of Crimea has proclaimed independence from Kiev and set a March 16 referendum on switching over to Kremlin rule. The decision has been condemned by Western powers who are also furious at Moscow's seizure of Crimea in a lightning but bloodless operation that began days after the February 22 fall and subsequent escape to Russia of president Viktor Yanukovych.

Imagine what a picture of all the food you eat in a day would tell you about your eating habits. What about when you compare it to that of a neighbor, a person in another state, another part of the world?
For centuries people have been simultaneously fascinated by what's inside the human body and squeamish about getting close enough to a cadaver to actually find out. "There's this tension between the desire to know, and what it takes to get that knowledge," said David Jones, a historian of science at Harvard Medical School and one of the curators of a new exhibit that illustrates some of the ways in which people have wrestled with that tension through the ages. Science, culture, and religion have all played a role.

Matt Gunn, an independent model aircraft or drone operator in Cleveland, says the recent court ruling barring the Federal Aviation Administration from enforcing rules prohibiting the commercial use of drones amounts to "mud being flung in their face." Gunn is among more than a dozen small-scale drone operators whom the FAA ordered to cease-and-desist their commercial work with unmanned vehicles, orders nullified Thursday.
Pull over, Uber: Cars aren't the only mode of transportation in the ride-sharing game.
The time has come for interaction designers to get very intentional. If we're not careful, the future could resemble the scarier parts of Minority Report, where roving droids scan our irises and force non-stop customized ads upon us. Avoiding that future -- while embracing the benefits of a seamless experience without violating trust -- is just as much a design problem as an ethical one.
