Amazon has long had a reputation as a hard-ball negotiator. It turns out its negotiations with Whole Foods leading up to its $13.7 billion acquisition agreement were no different, according to an SEC filing outlining a timeline of the talks between the two companies. On May 23, Amazon made a written offer to acquire Whole Foods for $41 a share, less than a month after the first meeting between senior executives of the companies, the filing said. Whole Foods came back with a counterproposal of $45 a share, which got Amazon to increase its offer to $42. But Amazon's bankers from Goldman Sachs then "stressed several times" that the increase to $42 represented Amazon's "best and final offer." Amazon's bankers "also made it clear again ... that would disengage from its efforts to acquire the company and pursue other alternatives and initiatives if the $42.00 per share price were not accepted ," the filing said, "and that expected that the company would not approach other potential bidders while the company was negotiating with" Amazon also threatened it would walk away if the talks leaked to the press, which they did not.

Hackers targeting US nuclear power plants, report finds

A single gene in E. coli bacteria could hold clues for extending the human lifespan

The team began with a series of E. coli strains that were identical except for a single missing gene in each strain. Once the various strains were fed to C. elegans, the researchers found that 29 of them extended the lives of the worms by at least 10 percent. Of those 29, 19 also improved the worms’ quality of life, protecting the specimens from cancer and neurodegenerative conditions — in short, they were protected from age-associated diseases. Two of the strains surprised the researchers by making very high amounts of colanic acid. When they were stopped from producing the acid, the longevity benefits also stopped, which established a relationship.

How to get alerts for the best Prime Day deals

How to Fix iOS 10 - iOS 10.3.2 Battery Life Problems

While iOS takes care of suspending apps in the background, it’s likely that some apps wake up in the background to fetch content off the network. You may want to force close apps like VoIP, navigation and streaming audio apps if you’re not using them as they’re known to drain battery life. It is important to note here that you should only close apps that you don’t want to use. It is a not a good practice to force close all apps, as that could have an adverse impact on battery life. Force close an app by double-pressing the home button scrolling through the apps to find the one you want to close, and swiping up on the app card to close it.

A Look Inside Calexit, the Comic That Imagines California's Secession From a Fascist US

Although Calexit initially started out as a twisted extension of fears about the resurgence of the far right, Pizzolo is alarmed at just how swiftly its concepts have gone from thought experiments to alarmingly realistic in the time it’s taken the series to hit comic shelves. “In the time since we cooked this fictitious world up,” Pizzolo continued, “Trump was elected President and pushed through his controversial travel ban executive order, with numerous states refusing to enforce it and the Supreme Court ruling largely against the states. When President Trump pulled America out of the Paris accord, California responded by co-founding the United States Climate Alliance with other states, in direct defiance of the Federal Government, and California even went so far as to forge a unilateral climate agreement direct with China. And Trump threatened to deputize the National Guard. It’s all really startling. When we put this book together we weren’t hoping for ‘prescient’ to be the word buzzing around it.”

A diabetes medication that costs 6 cents a pill could be a key to living longer

Using the drug as an anti-aging treatment makes sense, since it helps the body be more sensitive to insulin, which in turn lowers the amount of blood sugar in the body and helps things run more smoothly. That may mean the drug could simply help people feel healthier for longer than they might have otherwise — a phenomenon known as increasing the " healthspan ."
