Judge orders Arkansas to conduct autopsy on executed inmate
Sat, 29 Apr 2017 10:42:57 -0400

Judge orders Arkansas to conduct autopsy on executed inmateA federal judge has ordered the Arkansas authorities to conduct an autopsy on the body of an executed inmate whose lawyer described his death as "horrifying," including jerking and convulsions during his lethal injection. Judge Kristine Baker of the US Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas issued the order late Friday, less than 24 hours after the state executed the 38-year-old convicted multiple murderer Kenneth Williams. Arkansas officials had said the compressed timeline was necessary because the state's stock of a sedative used in the lethal injection, midazolam, was set to expire at the end of April.

Trump's big EPA website change should make you furious
Fri, 28 Apr 2017 22:23:32 -0400

Trump's big EPA website change should make you furiousYet another fear among scientists and climate activists has become reality in the era of Trump. Decades of research and data about carbon emissions, other greenhouse gases, and more was hidden from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) website by the Trump administration late Friday as the sprawling climate change webpage goes under "review."  Adding insult to injury, this comes on the eve of the People's Climate March.  Climate change activists have been wringing their hands ever since Inauguration Day, fearing that the new administration would do something just like this. The EPA has been chipping away at climate change mentions on its website since January, but Friday's takedown is the biggest, and most disturbing step yet.  SEE ALSO: In ultimate insult, Trump rolls back EPA's climate policies from within the EPA The webpage, which has been in existence for more than 20 years, explained what climate change is, what caused it and how it affects your health, among other things. In contrast to what Trump and his EPA administrator, Scott Pruitt, have said about climate change (they don't believe it's man-made), the webpage notes many times how humans have contributed to climate change.  "Research indicates that natural causes do not explain most observed warming, especially warming since the mid-20th century. Rather, it is extremely likely that human activities have been the dominant cause of that warming," the webpage read, according to an archived version captured before Friday. Starting Friday evening, going to EPA.gov/climate and EPA.gov/climatechange sent visitors to a landing page that said, "This page is being updated." In an agency statement about the website changes, there's no mention of removing all the content, even if temporarily.  "The process, which involves updating language to reflect the approach of new leadership, is intended to ensure that the public can use the website to understand the agency's current efforts," the EPA's statement reads, adding in the last line that "content related to climate and regulation is also under review." At the very end of a Friday news dump: @EPA might take climate change information off its website pic.twitter.com/Gngh62R5sJ ? Timothy Cama (@Timothy_Cama) April 28, 2017 While the climate landing page was down, certain climate-related sections could still be found through a Google search. For example, a section about climate indicators was still live as of Friday evening. "While it remains to be seen how information and information access will change as the EPA site is updated, it is concerning that this overhaul was not announced until the same day that pages like the Climate Change page, which serve as important public resources, were already becoming unavailable," said the Environmental Data and Governance Website Tracking Initiative, a nonprofit group closely tracking changes to climate information across the federal government, in a statement.  "The timing of this overhaul cuts off availability when access to trusted information about the science behind climate change will be necessary to enable a conversation about our changing climate," the group stated. Trump has made climate denying statements in the past, calling global warming a hoax. More recently he walked them back, claiming that climate change was naturally occurring and not man-made. Trump's EPA chief, Scott Pruitt, is a noted climate-change denier.  The administration is seeking to make deep cuts to the EPA's budget and personnel, potential involving thousands of layoffs and the gutting of its climate science programs, which could leave few qualified people left to update the climate science page in the next few years. The scientific findings presented on the EPA climate change website were used by many in the media and the scientific community to contradict claims Pruitt made in a CNBC interview on March 9, in which he said that carbon dioxide does not act as a "control knob," or thermostat, on the planet's climate:  "I think that measuring with precision human activity on the climate is something very challenging to do and there's tremendous disagreement about the degree of impact, so no, I would not agree that it's a primary contributor to the global warming that we see," Pruitt said. "But we don't know that yet, as far as... we need to continue the debate and continue the review and the analysis," he said.  On eve of #climatemarch, Trump EPA releases quiet, mumbling press release signaling censorship of climate change content from EPA website. https://t.co/MUxAIf5XMs ? John Walke (@jwalkenrdc) April 28, 2017 The EPA's inspector general is investigating whether Pruitt's statement's violated agency policy because they departed so much from the agency's own scientific findings.  The EPA has a link back to an archived view of the site from before Trump took office on Jan. 19. That's exactly one day before Trump took over. But more recent archived versions of the site are available, such as this screenshot of the climate page from March 17. Earlier Friday, Trump signed an executive order that expands offshore drilling in the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, something the Obama administration fought to curtail. The administration has been working to roll back Obama's other climate change programs, including the EPA's Clean Power Plan, which would restrict greenhouse gas emissions from power plants.  The website review may be aimed at bringing the site in line with such an agenda, but any editing of scientific information would run counter to the history of the site and the mission of the EPA.  Information about the website changes have been murky, with the administration's statement leaving much to be desired in terms of detail. There's no timeline on when the changes will be made either. Climate activists have already begun voicing their concerns on social media, and this is sure to fire them up as they ready for Saturday's big climate march.  Mashable science editor Andrew Freedman contributed reporting for this story.

Qualcomm slams Apple in scathing new statement
Fri, 28 Apr 2017 11:44:49 -0400

Qualcomm slams Apple in scathing new statementThe Apple vs. Qualcomm patent fight is probably the second most important new legal confrontation between tech companies this year, with the Google vs. Uber trial being far more interesting and dramatic. But you had still better be ready for the incoming spectacle. Case in point: Qualcomm on Friday issued a press release to tell everyone in the world that Apple has been a bad, bad company. Titled Apple Continues to Improperly Interfere with Qualcomm's Agreements with Contract Manufacturers, the new statement is about Qualcomm?s revised guidance for the third quarter in light of Apple?s recent actions. Needless to say, this fight stands to have a dramatic impact on Qualcomm's performance. Apparently, Apple told Qualcomm that ?Apple is withholding payments to its contract manufacturers for the royalties those contract manufacturers owe under their licenses with Qualcomm for sales during the quarter ended March 31, 2017,? and it will continue to do so until the patent dispute is settled. As a result, Qualcomm now expects revenue between $4.8 billion and $5.6 billion for the third quarter. Its prior guidance was between $5.3 billion and $6.1 billion. Comparatively, Qualcomm reported $6.0 billion for the third quarter of fiscal year 2016. In other words, iPhone money is really important to the chipmaker. "Apple is improperly interfering with Qualcomm's long-standing agreements with Qualcomm's licensees," executive vice president and general counsel of Qualcomm Don Rosenberg said. "These license agreements remain valid and enforceable. While Apple has acknowledged that payment is owed for the use of Qualcomm's valuable intellectual property, it nevertheless continues to interfere with our contracts. Apple has now unilaterally declared the contract terms unacceptable; the same terms that have applied to iPhones and cellular-enabled iPads for a decade. Apple's continued interference with Qualcomm's agreements to which Apple is not a party is wrongful and the latest step in Apple's global attack on Qualcomm. We will continue vigorously to defend our business model, and pursue our right to protect and receive fair value for our technological contributions to the industry." Things are definitely going to get interesting...

This 7-year-old girl wrote a letter to Google and got a tech job out of itHow about this amazing little nugget to restore your faith in humanity: Chloe Bridgewater, a seven-year-old from Hereford, UK, is a big fan of technology and eventually wants to work for Google. Rather than wasting any time, she decided to send Google CEO Sundar Pichai a letter to let him know that she's planning on working there one day. She got two things in return: A lovely letter from Pichai encouraging her to follow her dreams, and a paid job testing tech products for a tech startup based in London. "Dear Google boss," Young Bridgewater's letter begins. "May name is Chloe and when I am bigger I would like a job with Google." She goes on to explain that she's also planning on swimming in the Olympics and working at a chocolate factory, because what kid doesn't dream of that? Her love of Google centers around its work culture, which includes kid-friendly bonuses like working from a bean bag or making your way from one floor of the company's headquarters to another via slide. After her father posted a photo of her letter online it quickly went viral, catching the attention of Kano, the built-it-yourself computer startup that crushed its crowdfunding goals back in late 2013 and has been shipping its kits ever since. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1V0qlI28Usc Now, the 7-year-old and her younger sister, Hollie, help Kano test new products ahead of time, giving the company feedback on what works and what doesn't. The two girls were even added as board members of Kano's product innovation board.

Trump on his first 100 days in office: ?I thought it would be easier?
Fri, 28 Apr 2017 16:08:39 -0400

Trump on his first 100 days in office: ?I thought it would be easier?

As Trump's first one hundred days in office come to a close, Americans are reflecting on what the president and his administration have been able to accomplish since stepping into the White House. To call these first hundred days tumultuous would be an understatement, as Trump's attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare collapsed before it was even voted on and tensions with North Korea, Russia and even Canada have ratcheted up considerably. What does Trump think of all this?

"I loved my previous life. I had so many things going," Trump told Reuters in an interview this week. "This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier."

A shockingly candid admission from a man who willingly ran for the office of president, but not an especially surprising one, all things considered. Trump told his base that he would run the country like a business, but the American government doesn't operate like a business. Coming to an agreement with hundreds of representatives and senators is a world away from closing a real estate deal.

But as difficult as the fight over healthcare, tax reform and foreign policy have proven to be, Trump still appears to be more concerned with proving to the American people how popular he really is, despite the polls. In the middle of a discussion about Chinese President Xi Jinping, Reuters says that Trump paused to pass out "copies of what he said were the latest figures from the 2016 electoral map."

Why on earth a group of reporters would want to see an "updated" electoral map of an election that was decided nearly six months ago is beyond me, but Trump's insecurity knows no bounds.

Following the "clarification" regarding the 2016 electoral map, Trump told the reporters that he is still warming up to the fact that he has to have 24-hour protection from the Secret Service. As a public figure (and one who appreciated attention), he never had much privacy in the first place, but now he says he's in his "own little cocoon," and that he "really can't go anywhere" with all the protection.

Thai court finally issues arrest warrant for Red Bull heirA Thai court has issued an arrest warrant for the heir to the Red Bull empire over a deadly 2012 hit-and-run, police said Friday, a belated move to end the impunity enjoyed by a scion better known by his nickname "Boss". In a case closely watched by the Thai public, police said the court issued the warrant for Worayuth Yoovidhya after hours of deliberation by the bench. "The arrest warrant has been issued," Colonel Kachornpong Jiitparkpoom, the superintendent of Thonglor police station, told AFP on Friday afternoon.
