    By Paul Lienert (Reuters) - Tesla rival Lucid Motors plans to equip its new Air luxury electric sedan with a semi-automated driver assistance system when the first cars roll off an Arizona assembly line in early 2021, Lucid said on Tuesday. The Lucid Air, which will compete with the Tesla Model S, will come standard with such features as adaptive cruise control, lane centering, automatic emergency brakes and automated parking. It will also be one of the first production vehicles to be equipped with standard lidar, a laser-based sensor that detects obstacles and objects, including pedestrians, as part of the vehicle's collision avoidance system. Tesla chief Elon Musk has said Teslas do not need lidar because their other sensors - mainly camera and radar - provide sufficient object detection when the vehicle is in semi-automated Autopilot mode. He has derided the use of lidar, which is far more costly than...
    A job posting for a mother seeking a babysitter has left Redditors aghast thanks to the woman's shockingly unreasonable demands and even more shockingly low pay. The unidentified Canadian mother shared the job posting on social media,  and even though it's now been viewed by thousands, it seems unlikely she'll find anyone interested to fill the role.   In the posting, the mom says she wants a babysitter who will work nearly 60 hours for just $100 CAD ($74.83 USD) per week — and what's more, she demands that they pay for their own background check, provide vegan organic food, and be available to work weekends with no notice. What?! A Canadian mother advertised for a babysitter who would work a nearly 60-hour week for $100 CAD — and provide food The preposterous listing asks for a babysitter in Toronto who will watch two girls, age two and six, from 6:30...
    Savannah Rychcik July 26, 2020 0 Comments Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar is weighing in on the Trump administration’s approach to providing funding for testing amid the coronavirus pandemic. Margaret Brennan, the host of CBS’ “Face the Nation,” claimed President Donald Trump opposed including more funding for testing in the next coronavirus relief package. Azar explained the previous bills provided $25 billion in funding for testing. States received $11 billion and have used $40 million. He argued Trump will make sure there is enough funding for testing. “The president’s going to make sure that he works with Congress, that there’s adequate funding for testing. I’m going to leave it to the chief of staff and the secretary of the treasury who are negotiating with Congress now, but we’ll make sure there’s adequate money that meets the needs of this response,” Azar said.Check out his comments below: MORE TESTING MONEY?...
    Mary Trump Says President Donald Trump Demonstrates "Sociopathic Tendencies" California university system makes ethnic studies or social justice a required class WTA chief hopes Palermo Open will provide blueprint for 2020 By Sudipto Ganguly © Reuters/Edgar Su FILE PHOTO: WTA Tour Finals MUMBAI (Reuters) - WTA chief Steve Simon cannot wait for the Tour to get back up and running in Sicily next month and hopes the Palermo Open will provide a blueprint for tournament operations amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The women's claycourt tournament, which gets underway in the Sicilian capital on Aug. 3, will be the first across both the WTA or ATP tours since they were suspended in early March because of the novel coronavirus outbreak. "I'd say there's definitely an excitement to get back to doing what we love," WTA Chairman and Chief Executive Simon told Reuters by video call from the United States. "Obviously...
    The company said that if researchers found a vulnerability through using the SRD, it must report it to Apple or an appropriate third party if it’s in a third-party code. Apple will then attempt to resolve the issue, and provide a “publication date” when it will take place. Until then, the researchers can’t share their findings with others. Techcrunch also reported that program participants will have access to extensive documentation and a dedicated forum with Apple engineers.  Device availability is limited, and researchers need to apply to be in the program. They must be an Account Holder in the Apple Developer Program, a proven track record of finding security issues, and be based in an eligible country or region.  The SRD program will run concurrently with its bug bounty program, which was opened up to all researchers last year. Participants can file security bug reports and potentially get paid up...
    AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson promised to offer their coronavirus vaccines to the US at cost during testimony before a Congressional committee on Tuesday. UK-based Astrazeneca also said that it would ramp up production of its prospective vaccine - created with Oxford University - to ensure that 300 million doses are available to the US immediately upon its hopeful Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval.  Spokespeople for Moderna, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, and Merck all admitted that they intended to profit on the COVID-19 vaccines they are developing, although Johnson & Johnson (J&J) said it would provide its shot at-cost for the duration of the national emergency.   Questioning during the hearing focused largely on the accessibility, supply chain and safety of the vaccine. The firms promised that they would include minority participants in their clinical trials.  They deferred, however, on questions of ensuring the most vulnerable populations have access to...
    Senate Republicans are crafting a new coronavirus aid package that will provide more than $100 billion to open schools, new aid for small businesses, and another round of direct payments to individuals and families, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday. The Kentucky Republican outlined in a Senate floor speech the GOP’s plans to fund treatment, testing, and a vaccine for the coronavirus, contradicting a push by some Trump administration officials to hold back on new funding for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “If we lose control of the virus or if research stalls, then everything else will be window dressing," McConnell said. “Our proposal will dedicate even more resources to the fastest race for a new vaccine in human history, along with diagnostics and treatments.” The Senate GOP is expected to unveil elements of its aid package this week, including a $105 billion boost for schools. McConnell...
    Westchester County is establishing a working group that will help dictate what schools will look like in the fall when they reopen amid the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. County Executive George Latimer said that the working group will been designed to “further provide information and support around the areas of public health, emergency preparedness and response.” Latimer said the goal of the task force is to create a more efficient way to provide feedback for common issues that may arise as schools reopen in September. Among the issues being discussed is the purchase of Personal Protective Equipment, how to best install Plexiglas dividers, and signage. Contact tracing is being put in place and the working group is developing a standardized frequently asked questions document. 
“No one knows what we will be up against when our school districts start to reopen again,” Latimer stated. “If we do see plans for...
    The New York City legal community is very well represented among its local bar associations, whether those be citywide, boroughwide, supportive of a particular legal field or affinity. However, for years Caribbean American lawyers and jurists didn’t have a bar association of their own. Sure, they could join groups like the Metropolitan Black Bar Association, or perhaps ones similar to the Haitian American Lawyers Association of New York. That’s all about to change, as a group of lawyers and judges have come together in recent months to form the Caribbean American Lawyers Association (CALA).
    The American Federation of Teachers warned Congress on Monday that nearly 1.4 million education jobs could be lost if Congress fails to provide adequate education funding in the next coronavirus relief package. “Our nation is at a critical crossroad, and the decisions Congress and the president make in the next two weeks will be felt for generations to come,” said AFT President Randi Weingarten when releasing the report. The union's report comes as the Senate is set to begin negotiations on its next coronavirus relief package. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky, wants his chamber to approve the legislation before August. Last week, he said that his colleagues are working to secure more funding for schools to go back in the fall. “I think all the evidence indicates that distance-learning for kids is not as good. They’ve already lost part of the last semester;...

    Details of the SpaceX 'Starlink home router', that will allow users of the satellite broadband network to get online have been revealed by regulators. The device has been given approval by the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) with people expected to start using it to get online in the coming weeks. Plans released as part of the regulatory process show that an external dish will receive the broadband signal, and then connect to the Starlink Router that will provide WiFi signals to internet enabled devices around the house. According to Elon Musk the dish will come equipped with motors enabling it to automatically adjust itself to the best view of the satellites currently overhead.  From the regulatory report the router will have a triangular base, but little else is known about its design and beta testers won't be allowed to talk about it.   Elon Musk's satellite-broadband firm has been...
    “The Democrats and Joe Biden believe in open borders,” Mercedes Schlapp, senior adviser for the Trump-Pence campaign, told “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Sunday. Schlapp made the comment two days after President Trump said he will be signing an executive order in the next few weeks that will include a “road to citizenship” for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients. “The president from day one has talked about and has had results in making sure that we secure our border and build the wall, which has been a priority for this president,” Schlapp said on Sunday. She explained that “in essence what the president has also been talking about is a merit-based immigration system, meaning that you protect American workers, while at the same time, bringing in the brightest and the best into our country.” She went on to say that “when I was at the White House, we worked on several immigration proposals trying to get Democrats to come on board that would have included legalization for DACA recipients.” MOST GIVE...
    President Trump said Friday that he will be signing an executive order in the next few weeks which will include a “road to citizenship” for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients. “I’m going do a big executive order, I have the power to do it as president and I’m going to make DACA a part of it,” Trump said in an interview with Telemundo anchor Jose Diaz-Balart. “But we’ll put it in and then we’re probably going to be taking it out. We’re working out the legal complexities right now,” Trump added, but did not expand on what he meant. SUPREME COURT RULES AGAINST TRUMP ADMINISTRATION BID TO END DACA PROGRAM Trump, who has pledged to end DACA since he was on the campaign trail in 2015 when he called the program an “illegal executive order,” said that the bill wouldn’t just be for temporary relief but would be a...
    The Centers for Disease Control will produce additional guidance on school reopenings after President Donald Trump demanded kids get back to the classroom, making it part of his pitch to voters as he seeks a second term. CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield said his agency wouldn't revise what was already public but would provide 'additional reference documents' on the subject. He didn't address what those additional documents would say or if it would change the extensive guidelines from his agency. 'Our guidelines are our guidelines but we are going to provide additional reference documents to aid basically communities that are trying to re-open K through 12s,' he said on ABC's 'Good Morning America.'  'It's not a revision of the guidelines, it's just to provide additional information to help the schools be able to use the guidance that we put forward,' he added.  The CDC will produce additional guidance on...
    STANFORD, Calif. (KGO) -- Stanford University announced Wednesday that it is reducing its varsity athletics programs and staffing at the end of the 2020-21 academic year.Stanford will discontinue 11 of its varsity sports programs: men's and women's fencing, field hockey, lightweight rowing, men's rowing, co-ed and women's sailing, squash, synchronized swimming, men's volleyball, and wrestling. Additionally, 20 support staff positions are being eliminated as part of this realignment."Our goal is to provide excellent support and a world-class experience for our student-athletes in the sports that we offer," said Stanford in a statement. "Over time, however, providing 36 varsity teams with the level of support that they deserve has become a serious and growing financial challenge. We now face the reality that significant change is needed to create fiscal stability for Stanford Athletics, and to provide the support we believe is essential for our student-athletes to excel."Here's Stanford's full announcement.
    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — No decision has been made yet on whether students will return to LAUSD campuses for the first day of school, but one thing parents can probably count on is a mix of online and in-person classes, Superintendent Austin Beutner says. “As we look ahead to the start of a new school year, the challenge is to build on the foundation that’s been put in place over the past few months and apply the learnings to provide the best possible education for students,” Beutner said in his weekly coronavirus briefing. The first day of school for the district, which employs some 75,000 employees and serves almost 700,000 students, is scheduled for Aug. 18. When the pandemic started, the district, teachers and students were plunged into remote learning. But many students lacked the proper equipment, dependable internet access and consistent help at home, creating virtual drop-outs. “We knew...
    Minnesota diabetics who need emergency insulin supplies but can’t afford them will be able to get the drug starting Wednesday under a new state law. The safety net program within the Alec Smith Insulin Affordability Act, which the Legislature passed in April, will allow qualifying diabetics with less than seven days worth of the lifesaving drug left to pay no more than $35 to get a one-time 30-day supply from their pharmacy. The law is named for Alec Smith, an uninsured 26-year-old Minneapolis man who died in 2017 of complications from rationing his insulin — a common but dangerous strategy among those who lack sufficient coverage. He couldn’t afford the $1,300 per month he needed for the drug and test supplies after he aged off his mother’s insurance. His mother, Nicole Smith-Holt, was a leading campaigner to get the legislation passed. To qualify for the urgent need program, diabetics must...

    Hundreds of troops with the Washington, DC, National Guard have mobilized to provide security for monuments in the nation’s capital, according to a Pentagon spokesperson. Interior Secretary David Bernhardt ordered the action this week, as rioters across the country have targeted statues and other historical figures, including Confederate leaders, and former Presidents George Washington and Ulysses S. Grant. The Pentagon confirmed that nearly 100 D.C. National Guardsmen have been asked to report for duty and are on standby. “Since their activation, none of the National Guard members have been dispatched to actual monument locations to provide assistance to the NPP,” Pentagon spokesperson Lt. Col. Christian Mitchell said in a statement. “They remain on standby at the D.C. Armory at this time. They will support U.S. Park Police at key monuments to prevent any defacing or destruction.” Mitchell noted that the members of the National Guard remain unarmed and “will serve as a uniformed deterrence” to provide...
    Students will be back in class in the fall, but school won't be quite the same. The director of the Illinois Department of Public Health expects Illinois to be in Phase 4 of Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s, which begins Friday and allows for in-person classes, for some time. It’s unclear when there would be a widely-available and effective treatment for COVID-19. A treatment or vaccine would allow the state to advance to Phase 5 of the governor's reopening plan. State public health and school officials announced Tuesday the return of in-person instruction guidelines for the fall semester. The guidelines include flexible K-12 schedules that include the possibility of returning to remote learning if needed. The new guidelines: Require use of appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), including face coverings; Prohibit more than 50 individuals from gathering in one space; Require social distancing whenever possible; Conduct symptom...
    PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) — Cambodia has established a program to give cash handouts to the country’s poorest households to alleviate the financial burden caused by the coronavirus. Prime Minister Hun Sen announced Wednesday that the government will spend $25 million a month to provide money to 560,000 households identified by an existing program as the poorest. He said the cash transfers will be carried out in June and July, and will be extended or expanded in the following months according to economic conditions. The 560,000 households account for about 2.3 million Cambodians, or about 14% of the almost 17 million population. The program will provide $20 to rural families and $30 to urban families because living expenses are higher in cities, Hun Sen said. The transfers will be supplemented by smaller payments for each family member, and an additional $10 for live-in parents over the age of 60 and...
    NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace appeared on CNN on Tuesday night for an interview after federal investigators concluded that there were no crimes committed over allegations that a noose had been left in Wallace’s garage stall. When asked how he was doing after the FBI found that there was no hate crime, Wallace responded that he was “pissed,” saying that he is angry because people are questioning his character over the incident. “And as a person, Don, that doesn’t need the fame, doesn’t need the hype, doesn’t need the media, I could care less,” Wallace said. “I could give two craps about that.” After explaining the series of events that led to him finding out about the noose, which apparently was a garage pull rope that had been tied that way at least a year ago, Wallace responded to people who questioned his story by saying, “One thing you’ll never take...

    CHELSEA (CBS) — Chelsea school board members are appealing to Governor Charlie Baker for funding he promised months ago —  before the pandemic hit. “Our students have had underfunded schools for many many years. This is a problem that goes before COVID even we knew what it was,” said Chelsea School Board Member Roberto Jimenez Rivera. “When you have an environment at home that’s filled with stress because you’re around too many people. You might have students who can’t log onto the computer at home because they don’t have a computer,” he said. They sent a letter to the governor, along with 25 other so-called “gateway cities” including Everett, Brockton, Lowell, and Lawrence. The cities said they were disproportionately affected by the pandemic, with more essential workers, and higher rates of infection. In Chelsea, which led the state in cases, grandmother Gloria Diaz told WBZ she came down with COVID-19...
    Apple CEO Tim Cook delivers the keynote address during the 2020 Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) at Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California.Brooks Kraft/Apple Inc/Handout via Reuters Apple said on Monday that it's making two changes to its app approval policies, after developers erupted in anger last week over the App Store's rules.  All iPhone apps are reviewed by Apple employees as part of a system called App Review, which checks the app against Apple's "guidelines," and makes a decision whether the app is approved or if the developers need to fix it.  Going forward, developers will not only be able to appeal whether an app violates a specific guideline, but also can "challenge" the guideline itself, Apple said in a press release. Additionally, Apple said it will no longer delay bug fix updates if an app is found in violation of the guidelines. Instead, developers can address the issue...

William "Roddie" Bryan Jr., the man who filmed the February shooting in Georgia, will also attend a hearing. He was arrested last month on charges that include felony murder.Ahmaud Arbery was killed February 23. Lawyers for Travis and Greg McMichael opened the proceeding by requesting their clients be physically present in the courtroom -- rather than via video feed -- which Glynn County Chief Magistrate Judge Wallace Harrell denied. Bryan's attorney said his client was waiving the right to appear. Gov. Brian Kemp has promised a substantial police presence and issued a warning to any "bad actors" seeking to disrupt the proceedings and heretofore peaceful protests in the county. The hearings are unfolding amid a week of protests...
    Hong Kong (CNN)British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has promised to provide a path to British citizenship for potentially millions of Hong Kongers, as China prepares to impose a draconian new national security law on the city. That law, Johnson said in an op-ed published in the South China Morning Post Wednesday, "would curtail (Hong Kong's) freedoms and dramatically erode its autonomy," contravening the Sino-British Joint Declaration which laid the groundwork for the city's handover from British to Chinese rule in 1997. Should it come to pass, the UK will "uphold our profound ties of history and friendship with the people of Hong Kong," by changing immigration laws to allow more Hong Kongers to settle and work in the country. The secret negotiations that sealed Hong Kongs future"This would amount to one of the biggest changes in our visa system in British history. If it proves necessary, the British government will...
