One of the most prominent members of special counsel Robert Mueller's team investigating Russia's attack on the 2016 presidential election will soon leave the office and the Justice Department, two sources close to the matter tell NPR.
The departure is the strongest sign yet that Mueller and his team have all but concluded their work.
Last month in El Salvador, a third-party outsider won in a landslide election, defeating his opponents, promising to crack down on corruption, to fight crime, and to improve the economy. President-elect Nayib Bukele shares with us his thoughts on immigration, gangs, and how the U.S. and El Salvador can work together. Read the transcript...
Hassabis officially founded DeepMind on November 15th 2010. The company’s mission statement was the same then as it is now: to “solve intelligence”, and then use it to solve everything else. As Hassabis told the Singularity Summit attendees, this means translating our understanding of how the brain accomplished tasks into software that could use the same methods to teach itself.
From the start, Hassabis has tried to protect DeepMind’s independence. He has always insisted that DeepMind remain in London. When Google bought the company in 2014, the question of control became more pressing.
The new theory suggests that time does not PASS and that everything is ever-present. fact, time is not linear as we have been thinking all along, and everything around us is ever present. The researchers indicates that time should be regarded as a dimension of spacetime, as relativity theory holds — so it does not pass by us in some way, because spacetime doesn’t. Instead, time is part of the uniform larger fabric of the universe, not something moving around inside it. According to a scientist, everything that has happened, and everything that will happen is in fact occurring at this very moment as time is positioned in space.
Goldman Sachs says blue-collar and middle-class wages jumped by four percent in the last 12 months — after discounting inflation — and are likely to keep growing in President Donald Trump’s “Hire American” economy.
Trump’s low immigration “tight labor market” policy played a key role, the report acknowledged: “Even if job growth slows as the labor market tightens, labor income should continue to grow at a healthy pace,” says the March 12 report titled “Wage Growth by Income Level: Acceleration From Below.”
The vote comes amid signs that Mueller's inquiry could be drawing closer to its conclusion. Mueller's office confirmed on Thursday that one of its top prosecutors, Andrew Weissmann, plans to leave for another job soon, the latest in a series of departures from the office.
Justice Department rules require Mueller to submit a final, confidential report to Barr outlining why he charged some people and not others. Barr has said he wants to release as much detail as possible about the results of the special counsel investigation, but has not committed to releasing all of the findings of an investigation that has been based in part on classified intelligence and secret grand jury information.
Stone is due back in federal court on Thursday to face U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who is overseeing his case and appears to be running out of patience with him.
But Stone is in hot water again because he failed to tell Jackson about the imminent publication of a book called “The Myth of Russian Collusion,” an updated version of a tome that was first released shortly after the 2016 election.
“Having been scolded, we seek only to defend Mr. Stone and move ahead without further ado,” they wrote.
It’s unclear whether Jackson will agree with them.
The additional charges against Keith Raniere, 58, were revealed hours after Nancy Salzman, the co-founder of the Albany-based group known as NXIVM, pleaded guilty to a charge of racketeering conspiracy.
Federal prosecutors said in court papers that Raniere, who was known inside the organization as "Vanguard," engaged in relationships with two underage girls, including a 15-year-old.
The government has images of the 15-year-old, "constituting child pornography,
Major sites such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Gmail were all glitchy yesterday and some continue to face issues. In fact, many users aren’t able to access their profile on Instagram yet. Many also complained about erratic file uploading on Gmail. It seems that the internet outage was linked somehow across the globe, all at the same time. The internet isn’t down for everyone, but users are selectively affected by it. Facebook in a post acknowledged the issue. A similar outage was experienced back in 2016. These kinds of attack are known as distributed denial of service attack. The attack overloads the internet servers and disturbs its functioning, affecting sites like Facebook and Whatsapp.
Such is life in Love and Producer, a mobile game that has become a surprise hit in China, attracting millions of women looking for love. “The men in the game are more attractive than real boyfriends,” says one fan, who asked not to be named. “They’re very attentive. They’re generally more into feelings and emotions.”
Eighteen researchers, including two CRISPR pioneers, are calling for a temporary ban on creating gene-edited babies.
“We call for a global moratorium on all clinical uses of human germline editing — that is, changing heritable DNA (in sperm, eggs or embryos) to make genetically modified children,” the statement’s cosigners, who come from seven countries, wrote in the March 14 Nature.
The proposed moratorium would last about five years to give time for public education and debate about experiments. The delay would buy time for scientists to further test and refine CRISPR/Cas9 and other gene-editing tools to make them safer.
For the past year, researchers at the University of Washington have been developing a robotic arm that could enable anyone capable of opening their mouth to feed themselves. The robot can be hooked onto a wheelchair, where it holds a fork, pokes at bites of food, and delivers those bites right into someone’s mouth. It’s a personal companion for food that could one day replace assisted eating altogether.
...graphene’s complex, expensive manufacturing process has prevented it from reaching the mainstream.
Now that could be poised to change, with a University of Cambridge spin-out company claiming it’s found a way to produce graphene at commercial scale — meaning the world might finally be able to make good on the promise of this “wonder material.”
It's a cambridge startup that has produced their product already. Which is simply commercial scale graphene. Considering they have sold to several sources it's not entirely unreasonable to think those sources plan on having a product. But then again, this is coming from 'futurism' site, so it's pretty suspect.
