La. cops stun, shoot and kill Alton Sterling for selling music

It’s happened again. Chilling cell phone video surfaced Tuesday of two Louisiana cops killing a 37-year-old man selling music outside a Baton Rouge convenience store after an anonymous caller claimed he had a gun. The police gunfire sparked impassioned protests that continued past midnight outside the store — 24 hours after authorities shot Alton Sterling during a fatal 12:35 a.m. encounter. More than 100 demonstrators shouting “no justice, no peace” clogged the street, setting off fireworks ...

Introducing Hover, An AI-Powered Indoor-Safe Camera Drone

Introducing Hover, An AI-Powered Indoor-Safe Camera Drone

The AI-powered micro quadcopter hovers in place and shoots 4K video from within a people-safe carbon fiber casing. Hover does exactly what it sounds like: Turn it on and it hovers in midair wherever you leave it. Hover is more a flying camera than a joyriding drone, and the controls on its paired smartphone app are for delicately repositioning it, not zooming to atrial heights. But the real breakthrough feature is its sophisticated AI programming that not only keeps the platform exceedingly l...

In the past four years, Coltuneac has gotten bug bounty payments from Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Adobe, Yahoo, eBay, and PayPal for flaws he reported. Such bounty programs are a chance for Eastern European hackers like him to pursue a legitimate career in cybersecurity. The allure of that life was powerful.

FBI Probe Contradicts Clinton's Claim She Never Sent Classified Emails

Had she done so, the report says, the relevant managemen...

Why Obama couldn't stop the Brexit

Why Obama couldn't stop the Brexit

Turns out Barack Obama wasn’t quite Britain’s cup of tea. Despite an approval rating in the 80s in Britain when the president landed in London in April, the polling bump that the Remain campaign was counting on from Obama's endorsement didn’t materialize. The arguments he made didn’t seem to break through in a real and lasting way, at least when weighted against the massive anti-immigrant sentiment, frustration with the European Union’s bureaucracy and regulations and Cameron’s tendency t...

    I don't see how any other country's leader could have had any real impact on this decision. A bunch of the voters who chose to leave regretted it immediately, or when the results were announced. Obama wasn't a factor, ignorance was.

With N.H.L. Expansion, Las Vegas Hits the Jackpot: A Pro Team

For decades, the country’s top professional sports leagues were so fearful of game-fixing that they generally dismissed the idea of putting teams in Las Vegas, the country’s gambling mecca. But the once unthinkable has quickly become a reality: Las Vegas has landed one big league team, and it may have two or even three in the future. Advertisement Indeed, according to the American Gaming Association, 19 N.F.L. stadiums are less than 20 miles from a casino, and daily fantasy companies allow fa...

Five Saudis and two Iraqis were among the dead, a Turkish official said. Citizens from China, Jorda...

    Interesting article. He may not have been the best father, husband and he certainly had a serious drug problem but he was amazingly talented and will be deeply missed. Rest in peace Scott Weiland.
