25 auto insurance companies with the most satisfied customers

While many motorists shopping for car insurance tend to focus on their monthly premiums, price is only part of the equation. Insurance remains a service business, and the manner in which a company interacts with and treats its customers – whether in person or online – is paramount to retaining their business.

The Hartford was recently cited as delivering the most satisfying auto insurance shopping experience among all carriers, getting a perfect five-circle overall rating in the 2012 U.S. Insurance Shopping Survey conducted by J.D. Power and Associates. Other auto insurance companies rated highly for overall customer satisfaction included Liberty Mutual, American Family, Auto Club Group, Nationwide, Amica Mutual, State Farm, Erie Insurance and MetLife, all of which received four-circle scores.

Specifically, the Hartford garnered top marks among consumers for its policy offerings, pricing and call-center representatives. USAA got similar marks but was not included in the rankings because its coverage is available only to U.S. military personnel and their families.

'Monster Larva' mystery solved after 200 years

 For nearly two centuries, scientists have pulled so-called "monster larva" from the guts of fish and wondered what these thick-bodied creatures looked like as grown-ups. Now one biologist believes he has finally matched the larva with its adult counterpart.

"It's very exciting to have solved a nearly 200-year-old conundrum," Keith Crandall, a biology professor at George Washington University, said in a statement.

Bernie Ecclestone secretly marries Brazilian beauty 46 years younger than him

Formula 1 tycoon Bernie Ecclestone has secretly married for a third time in a ceremony at his ski chalet in Switzerland.

In a service his own daughters failed to attend, the 81-year-old billionaire married Brazilian marketing director Fabiana Flosi, 35, at Le Lion, his £23million chalet in the exclusive resort of Gstaad.

The couple, who announced their engagement in April with Miss Flosi sporting a £100,000 ring, exchanged vows two weeks ago – while Mr Ecclestone’s two daughters remained 6,000 miles away in Los Angeles.

Despite a 46-year age gap, Mr Ecclestone and Miss Flosi began dating in 2009 following the end of his 23-year marriage to Slavica. They met through their work on the Brazilian Grand Prix where Miss Flosi is F1’s vice-president of marketing.

The world’s first heartless man

  Doctors from the Texas Heart Institute have successfully replaced a patient’s heart with a device that keeps the blood flowing, thereby allowing him to live without a detectable heartbeat or even a pulse. Here’s how it works:
The turbine-like device, that are simple whirling rotors, developed by the doctors does not beat like a heart, rather provides a ‘continuous flow’ like a garden hose.Craig Lewis was a 55-year-old, dying from amyloidosis, which causes a build-up of abnormal proteins. The proteins clog the organs so much that they stop working, according to NPR.

Boy risked his life to save drowning girl

A 4-year-old Texas boy has died after sacrificing his life to save a little girl from drowning.

When Xander Vento saw a 3-year-old girl struggling in the deep end of a Fort Worth, Texas pool Monday, he held her head up so that she could stay above water, the Associated Press reports. But after becoming exhausted, Xander slipped to the bottom of the pool, lapsed into a coma and was eventually taken to Cook Children’s Medical Center, according to the news outlet.

Indian 'sewer diver' paid just £3.50 a day to unclog Delhi's drains

 If you think your job is the pits then spare a thought for Devi Lal.

The 'sewer diver' from Delhi, India, is paid a measly £3.50 a day to wallow in filth unclogging the city's drains.

Devi, 43, is provided with a bottle of bootleg booze to dull his senses before he begins his odious chore.

Scandalously the city does not bother to provide protective clothing so Devi and his colleagues are forced to spend hours a day in the filthy water in just their underwear.

Could this be new hard drive?

When it comes to storing information, hard drives don't hold a candle to DNA. Our genetic code packs billions of gigabytes into a single gram. A mere milligram of the molecule could encode the complete text of every book in the Library of Congress and have plenty of room to spare. All of this has been mostly theoretical—until now. In a new study, researchers stored an entire genetics textbook in less than a picogram of DNA—one trillionth of a gram—an advance that could revolutionize our ability to save data.

A few teams have tried to write data into the genomes of living cells. But the approach has a couple of disadvantages. First, cells die—not a good way to lose your term paper. They also replicate, introducing new mutations over time that can change the data.

Top 10 universities in the world

 10. Imperial College of London

The Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine was established in 1907.

Set in London’s scientific and cultural heartland, South Kensington, it was created though a merger between the Royal College of Science, the City and Guilds College and the Royal School of Mines.

Various colleges have merged with the College since. These include St Mary’s Hospital Medical School in 1988 and the National Heart and Lung Institute in 1995.

No more lying. Scan can reveal true age

For those who claim to perpetually be 29, it could be bad news.

Researchers have found a 'developmental clock' inside our brain that can reveal, to within a year, exactly how old we really are.

They say the discovery could have major implications for medicine, and gives new insight into how our brains change over time.

'We have uncovered a 'developmental clock' of sorts within the brain—a biological signature of maturation that captures age differences quite well, regardless of other kinds of differences that exist across individuals," says Timothy Brown of the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine.

Killer whale dragged trainer under water and held him there for 15 minutes

 A new video that shows a nearly 6,000lb killer whale thrashing his SeaWorld trainer for a heart-stopping 15 minutes has been released.

The 2006 video was released as part of the on-going litigation against the theme park by the US Secretary of Labor, who alleges SeaWorld has endangered scores of its trainers by exposing them to the dangerous whims of the enormous whales.

Kasatka's attack on San Diego trainer Ken Peters eerily foreshadowed the death of trainer Dawn Brancheu in Orlando, who was butchered in February 2010 by another killer whale named Tilikum.

Bus passenger caught on camera eating the seat

A peckish passenger has been caught on camera causing £200-worth of damage to a bus - by eating his seat.

A CCTV image has been released of the unidentified man ‘chewing’ a seat on the Number 12 bus in the Torbay area, in Devon.

The man, who has dark hair and is of stocky build, was on the bus for around 20 minutes before he started tucking in to his unusual meal.

PC Gary Blee, of Torbay police, said: 'The male offender was on a number 12 bus in Paignton and has chewed the seat he was sitting on, causing around £200 of damage.'

Girl raised by cows found in Urals

Social workers in Russia's Urals have taken into their care a five-year-old girl who spent most of her life in a cowshed and had cigarette butts for toys, media said on Thursday.

The girl’s mother and stepfather, both farmers in Perm region, did not take her to kindergarten and forced her to stay with the farm animals to keep her off their hands, said.

You`ve got a place at university - but is it worth paying the fees to go?

I am a nervous wreck. I've finished my A-Levels, applied to three universities and been offered conditional places at two.

That's Plan A. But what if I don’t get the grades needed to gain entry? I don’t have a Plan B.

With so many unemployed people the working world seems so different from full-time education, but is it even worth going to university?

Linda Mckay of This is Money replies: Got your university place offer, got a student loan application in and possibly reserved a place on campus. Sorted. Well almost.

Like others in your situation, it all hangs in the balance until the A-Level results came through yesterday.

Students like you have a lot riding on that and This is Money hopes you got the grades that you need and want. This September marks the £9,000 university tuition fee increase and graduates of 2015 will be hugely in debt when they finish so to continue on this path takes courage and a certain canniness with personal finance.

Some may still be paying off student loans into their 50s. I asked our experts for help to arm A-Level students who may not get the grades they want with options for the future.

Researchers find 'striking evidence' tropical fish are moving south due to climate change

Australian scientists say there is now "striking evidence" of extensive southward migration of tropical fish and declines in other species due to climate change, in a major ocean report card.

Compiled by more than 80 of Australia's leading marine experts for the government science body CSIRO, the snapshot of global warming's effects on the island continent's oceans warned of 'significant impacts'.

'Climate change is already happening; widespread physical changes include rapid warming of the southeast and increasing flow of the east Australia current,' the report said.

World’s smelliest man hasn’t bathed in 38 years

A lot of people can’t imagine going through a day without taking at least one shower, but 66-year-old  Kailash Singh, from India, hasn’t taken a bath in over 38 years, and says he’s happier than a lot of people who wash their bodies every day.

But what can possibly make a man give up the daily ritual of bathing? Kailash says he told the decision in 1974, shortly after he got married, hoping this would help him have a son. He claims it was priest who guaranteed him a prized son if he followed his advice not to wash or cut his hair. Now, over 38 years later, Kailash Singh is probably the world’s smelliest man, has 6-foot-long dirty dreadlocks and is father to seven daughters and not a single son. despite having been failed by his religious guidance, the old man still doesn’t want to wash his body, and says only a son could change his mind. Although stranger things have happened, fathering a son at 66, with a 60-year-old wife is very unlikely.

Curiosity prepares for "Brain Transplant"

The Mars Science Laboratory has landed, it's cameras are snapping images of a never-before seen region of Mars and the "7-minutes of terror" seem like a distant memory. Now that rover Curiosity looks forward to its first weekend on the Martian surface, what plans does it have?

It's preparing for a brain transplant.

This might not sound like your ideal weekend away on an alien world, but Curiosity's brain transplant will prepare it for the next phase of the mission. All the software Curiosity needed for the exciting entry, descent and landing (EDL) is now just surplus code taking up valuable memory.

Man Castrates Himself To Avoid Cheating On Wife

The 40-year-old in Mexico decided to castrate himself to avoid cheating on his wife who refused to have sex with him.

Mr Sanchez had performed the act on many of his animals in the past and believed the procedure would be as easy for him saying: “I’ve castrated pigs, cats, dogs and three days later they are healed.

“I thought that’s what it was going to be like with me. I had practice with animals, so I went ahead, put some pressure on it, and cut them to remove them by force!”

Instead of hair … her skin follicles are producing human nails

 A 28-year-old woman is reportedly suffering from an extremely rare skin condition that causes her to grow fingernails all over her body — including her face/scalp — instead of hair.

Shanyna A. Isom, a criminal justice student from Memphis, Tennessee, says she first saw signs of the condition back in 2009, when she had an asthma attack that doctors treated with steroids.

Unfortunately, Shanyna had an allergic reaction to the steroids, which caused her to develop bumbs on her legs, and her skin tone began to darken.

However, they may finally be getting closer.

Google's self-driving cars have now clocked up 300,000 miles without a single accident.

We weren't alone! There were two other species of early human beings

Scientists have discovered two new species of early human which lived alongside our direct ancestor two million years ago, before coming to an evolutionary 'dead end'.

The revelation is based on three new fossils unearthed between 2007 and 2009 from a site near Lake Turkana in Kenya - known as the 'cradle of mankind'.

They included a face, a near-complete lower jaw, and part of a second lower jaw.
