Marvell Technology buying chip maker Cavium in $6B deal
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Marvell Technology has bid about $6 billion for Cavium in a cash-and-stock deal that would create a chip maker to compete with Intel and other giants in the industry. The potential deal extends a long-running consolidation for computer chip producers which are trying to grow so that they can better supply tech leaders like Apple, Google and Samsung. Last week, Qualcomm rejected an unsolicited, $103 billion buyout from Broadcom, saying the bid was too low. Qualcomm last year said it would buy NXP Semiconductors for $38 billion. That deal remains under regulatory review. Avago Technologies purchased Broadcom for $37 billion in 2016.

Study looks at why ring-tailed lemurs raise a stink when they flirt with potential mates

A University of Toronto study finds that a unique ritual performed by male ring-tailed lemurs may come at a significant physical cost, but it likely helps their chances in securing a mate.

Ring-tailed lemurs are Strepsirrhines, a sub-order of primates who share a common ancestor with humans. They are very social animals, living in large groups with females dominating the group. Like other lemurs, they huddle in large groups in order to keep warm and maintain social bonds, with lower ranking males often excluded.
