China has blocked access to Wall Street Journal’s local language website, putting the US publication in the same position as Bloomberg and New York Times which are also censored in the country.

A check for the Chinese version of WSJ — cn.wsj.com — on monitoring site GreatFire.org shows that the URL is blocked as of this weekend, although access may have first been restricted within the last month. The English-language version of the site remains accessible, suggesting the aim is to disrupt WSJ’s reach in China rather than shut it off entirely.

GreatFire tests the availability of selected URLs once per month and, though it recorded “contradictory” results twice this year, this marks the first instance that WSJ has been unavailable in China.

GreatFire previously broke news of China’s widespread blockage of Google services during the 18th Communist Party Congress last year, and it regularly reports new blocks on websites and services.

ARTPOP may not be much of a "multimedia experience" after all. Despite having previously described her new album as an "a musical and visual engineering system", Lady Gaga has indicated that the app component is merely "an interactive jewel case".

Back when ARTPOP was announced, fans imagined it as a big-budget inheritor to Björk's Biophilia: a chimeric mash-up of music and app, exploring multiple themes across symbiotic technologies. "ARTPOP is not just an ALBUM it's a PROJECT," Gaga said at the time. Although the music would be released "in regular physical and digitals", the app was the main event: "an iPad, iPhone, mobile and computer compatible application ... that is completely interactive with chats, films for every song, extra music, content, gaga-inspired games, fashion updates, magazines."

Scientists to cook world's first in-vitro beef burger

The in-vitro burger, cultured from cattle stem cells, the first example of what its creator says could provide an answer to global food shortages and help combat climate change, will be fried in a pan and tasted by two volunteers.

The burger is the result of years of research by Dutch scientist Mark Post, a vascular biologist at the University of Maastricht, who is working to show how meat grown in petri dishes might one day be a true alternative to meat from livestock.

The meat in the burger has been made by knitting together around 20,000 strands of protein that has been cultured from cattle stem cells in Post's lab.

The tissue is grown by placing the cells in a ring, like a donut, around a hub of nutrient gel, Post explained.
