He noted that he released such information during his 2016 campaign as well. "Nothing much has changed except that I had a heart attack, and I look forward to a full recovery there," Sanders told the AP. "So, I don't think it'll be all too revelatory."...
Electrodes implanted in a part of the brain involved in motion have allowed some paralyzed patients to move a cursor and select onscreen letters with their thoughts. Users have typed up to 39 characters per minute, but that’s still about three times slower than natural handwriting. In the new experiments, a volunteer paralyzed from the neck down instead imagined moving his arm to write each letter of the alphabet. That brain activity helped train a computer model known as a neural network to interpret the commands, tracing the intended trajectory of his imagined pen tip to create letters (above). Eventually, the computer could read out the volunteer’s imagined sentences with roughly 95% accuracy at a speed of about 66 characters per minute...
The Drudge Report featured an altered map of the U.S. to include the Mexican border extending up to the border of the Rocky Mountain State, leading to some conservative media observers to pushback on the longtime conservative blog, noting that they think it seems that Matt Drudge, the site's founder, has seemed to recently sour on the president... One conservative commentator said that the Drudge website was "like reading CNN these days" and another called Drudge "anti-Trumper number one."

A Texas dad’s desperate battle to keep his 7-year-old child from undergoing a gender transition championed by the biological male’s mother has captured the attention of conservatives nationwide – including the Lone Star State’s governor, who announced a review of the case by top officials, even as all involved await a pivotal court ruling Thursday that could alter the youngster’s life forever.

The House Ethics Committee is investigating Michael San Nicolas, Guam’s non-voting delegate to Congress, who allegedly “engaged in a sexual relationship with an individual on his congressional staff, converted campaign funds to personal use, and/or accepted improper or excessive campaign contributions,” the committee announced Thursday.
Younger still has the option to appeal the jury verdict on Monday and seek sole custody of his sons, but the costly process could take time and possibly not legally prevent the first round of sexually altering medication from being administered to James. Having a say in his son's life and medical statements provide relief to that deadline.
Republican Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott claimed on Wednesday night that the Texas attorney general and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services were investigating the case of James Younger while Sen. Ted Cruz decried the jury decision as "horrifying & tragic" and Georgulas' plans were tantamount to "child abuse."

The NYCBA continued, "If he fails either to recuse himself or to resign, Mr. Barr should be subject to appropriate Congressional sanctions, including possible removal from office, in order to restore the Office of the Attorney General and the DOJ to their historic roles as defender of the law on behalf of the American people."...

As promised, President Trump recently guided his administration to move toward a more pro-life (or at least neutral) stance on federal abortion funding. The new rules strip Title X funding of any “reproductive healthcare” centers that provide abortion referrals. It was a response to the decades-long argument that pro-life taxpayer should not be required to fund abortions with their tax dollars.
The cause of death of the eight women and 31 men has yet to be established, Essex Police said in a statement... Police believe the container came from Belgium into England early Wednesday morning, while the journey of the truck that transported it is believed to have originated in Northern Ireland. Belgium's Federal Prosecutor, Eric van der Sypt, told CNN that a people-trafficking investigation has been opened. "At this point we don't know whether these people entered the container at (the Belgian port of) Zeebrugge or whether it arrived with them already onboard,"
