Justin Chambers to leave ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ after 16 seasons

Entertainment
Jan. 10 (UPI) -- Actor Justin Chambers announced he will leave ABC medical drama Grey's Anatomy after 16 seasons on the show. Chambers, 49, one of only four original cast members to remain a series regular for the 16th season, announced he will not be returning to the medical drama after last being seen in the 350th episode of Grey's Anatomy, which aired Nov. 14. "There's no good time to say goodbye to a show and character that's defined so much of my life for the past 15 years," Chambers said in a statement to Deadline. "For some time now, however, I have hoped to diversify my acting roles and career choices." Chambers' exit was confirmed by ABC. Dr. Alex Karev, Chambers' character, was last seen leaving his position as chief of staff and chief of surgery at Pacific Northwest General Ho...
House passes defense bill creating Space Force, paid parental leave

House passes defense bill creating Space Force, paid parental leave

Business
Dec. 11 (UPI) -- The House of Representatives on Wednesday voted to pass the annual defense spending bill, authorizing the creation of Space Force and passing a provision that provides all federal workers with 12 weeks paid parental leave. House Democrats pushed for the paid federal leave provision in exchange for the elevation of Air Force Space Command to its own branch of the military. President Donald Trump, who ordered the creation of the Space Force in February, negotiated with Democrats to fund the sixth branch of the military in exchange for the parental leave. Republicans objected to the paid leave, which is expected to cost the government $ 3.3 billion over five to 10 years. The bill passed the House in a 377-48 vote, with 41 Democrats and six Republicans opposing it, along wit...
Calving to leave Thwaites Glacier increasingly vulnerable to collapse

Calving to leave Thwaites Glacier increasingly vulnerable to collapse

Science
Dec. 5 (UPI) -- The melting of the Thwaites Glacier is responsible for roughly 10 percent of current global sea level rise. The number would be higher if not for the Antarctic glacier's ice shelf, the part that floats atop the ocean and insulates thicker ice farther inland. New research -- published this week in the journal Geophysical Research Letters -- suggests that once that protection is gone, the glacier's flow toward the ocean, and its subsequent breakup, is likely to accelerate. To find out how quickly calving would accelerate the glacier's retreat in absence of its ice shelf, scientists ran 20 models designed to simulate two different calving mechanisms and ice front melting, melting that is concentrated along the glacier's front edge. The models produced a variety of outcomes d...
