The 89-year-old Apollo 11 astronaut argued that the U.S. should be working towards “the great migration of humankind to Mars,” as a matter of the “ultimate survival” of humanity, in an op-ed for The Washington Post on Wednesday.
Rolled out a press conference Thursday morning, US Steel said they are going to build a new endless casting and rolling facility at the Edgar Thomson Plant, and add a cogeneration facility to the Clairton Plant. US Steel said this is cutting edge technology, combining casting and rolling into one straight process. Additionally, US Steel said this will be environmentally friendly, energy efficient and will reduce their carbon footprint.
The Middle East has the potential to help Amazon boost that growth, experts say... Two years ago, Amazon bought Souq.com, the Arab world's largest e-commerce platform. Yesterday, it rebranded Souq.com as Amazon.ae. The company also announced that it is setting up shop in Israel... Amazon is now in more than 60 countries. It already has 1.2 billion users, which makes it the biggest online marketplace in the world.
Any veto override attempt was expected to fall short after the resolution passed the Senate initially with 54 votes. Because the Senate voted first on the measure, its failure to nix Trump’s veto effectively kills any override attempts on Capitol Hill.
Police say the students, two males and a female, were arrested at the public school on felony charges of fourth-degree conspiracy. Their names were not released. Police say a copy of "The Anarchist Cookbook" was found at one of the teen's home. The book contains bomb making instructions.
The new rule followed a 2011 conscience regulation that the Department described as "inadequate" because it only covered three conscience statutes -- as opposed to the 25 covered in the new rule. HHS also outlined "robust" enforcement tools — like conducting investigations and making enforcement referrals to the Justice Department — to ensure that recipients of HHS funds comply with conscience protections.
Interesting news coming out of Utah. Seems Huber felt it was important to share this info.
Honored to have former AUSA and office leader David J. Schwendiman in the office today for a brown bag office alumni visit. Great advice for us shaped by his experiences as an AUSA, a war crimes prosecutor, his work on three Olympics, and @TheJusticeDept's attache in Kabul. pic.twitter.com/li1m34QHKx
Infowars is subject to the strictest ban. Any account that shares Infowars content will see it removed, unless the post is explicitly condemning Infowars. Facebook and Instagram will remove any content containing Infowars videos, radio segments, or articles (again, unless the post is explicitly condemning the content), and Facebook will also remove any groups set up to share Infowars content and events promoting any of the banned extremist figures, according to a company spokesperson. (Twitter, YouTube, and Apple have also banned Jones and Infowars.)
Jones, Yiannopoulos, Watson, Loomer, Nehlen, and Farrakhan are all personally banned, as are any accounts set up in their likeness. But users may still praise those figures on Instagram and share content related to them that doesn’t violate other Instagram and Facebook terms of service. “We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology. The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today,” a Facebook spokesperson said via email.
We tried posting this news on our instagram, but it wouldn't allow us to download the images. We tried on multiple devices.
The woman had set up the meeting to discuss foreign policy issues. But she was actually a government investigator posing as a research assistant, according to people familiar with the operation. The F.B.I. sent her to London to as part of the counterintelligence inquiry opened that summer to better understand the Trump campaign’s links to Russia.
In April 2018, a monkey named Ringo sat in a Harvard lab, sipping juice, while strange images flickered in front of his eyes. The pictures were created by an artificial-intelligence algorithm called XDREAM, which gradually tweaked them to stimulate one particular neuron in Ringo’s brain, in a region that’s supposedly specialized for recognizing faces... At first, the pictures were gray and formless. But as time passed, “from this haze, something started staring back at us,”...
In addition to Facebook pages offering looted antiquities, some also offer “looting to order,” where people ask for certain items that are subsequently stolen, according to the archaeologist. Facebook told the BBC that it has removed 49 groups as a result of the broadcaster’s investigation, although al-Azm questions that number. “We have tracked over 90 pages, of those 90, only 5 have been deleted,” he told Fox News, adding that there are tens of thousands, and in some cases, over 100,000 members in the Facebook groups. “In over a year, one group grew from nothing to over 50,000.”
The finding is remarkable, because few ancient animal remains survive in Mexico's hot, tropical climate. But these ancient beasts, the short-faced bear (Arctotherium wingei) and the wolf-like Protocyon troglodytes, fell to their deaths in a deep cave, which was flooded soon after. As a result, their bones were preserved in pristine condition, the researchers said.
During a hearing Tuesday on eight VA health-related bills under consideration by Congress, VA officials told House lawmakers that as long as marijuana is illegal under federal law, the department cannot support legislation that promotes its role at the VA.
This could be the first time since the 1999 Super Cyclone that the state would bear the brunt of such a severe storm. The 1999 cyclone killed nearly 10,000 people and battered the state with winds of 270-300 kmph. Cyclone Fani is expected to remain “extremely severe” for four to six hours after landfall, IMD officials said in New Delhi. It will then gradually weaken.
Zazi's sentence was leaner than what federal guidelines suggested, as he faced the possibility of life in prison after pleading guilty in 2010 to his involvement in the terror plot, The Associated Press reported. Judge Raymond Dearie ordered that he serve his sentence concurrently. Because Zazi was arrested in September 2009, only a few more months remain... Stampur also noted that his client has cooperated and helped the government “significantly in the fight against terrorism in this country and abroad."
NEW: @BuzzFeedNews and I just filed two additional massive #FOIA lawsuits against, DOJ, FBI, ODNI for pretty much every document (302s, those summaries, Barr emails and more) related to Mueller's report & investigation. Gonna be an epic battle. Thanks to #FOIA atty @mvtopicpic.twitter.com/W1ZLSshufT
Pugh’s defiant pledge last month to return to work gave way after federal agents raided her home and City Hall office a week ago. She is expected to become the second Baltimore mayor in a decade to quit in connection with a criminal investigation.
