    Tesla’s redesigned Model S and Model X will have a very unconventional and possibly controversial feature: automatic shifting between park, reverse, neutral, and drive (or PRND). There will be an option to change drive modes on the touchscreen, but CEO Elon Musk made the case for automatic switching on Twitter late Wednesday night. “Car guesses drive direction based on what obstacles it sees, context & nav map,” Musk tweeted. “After you drive without using a PRND stalk/stick for a few days, it gets very annoying to go back & use a shifter! You can override on touchscreen.” An internal Tesla document obtained by Electrek expands, slightly, on what Musk means by “guesses”: The vehicle uses its Autopilot sensors to intelligently and automatically determine intended drive modes and select them. For example, if the front of Model S/X is facing a garage wall, it will detect this and...
    New York Times columnist David Brooks made a curious connection between Black Lives Matter marches in support of racial justice last summer and the difficult decision process in reopening schools amid an ongoing coronavirus pandemic. His comments were made in a Thursday night tweet addressed to “Readers,” and asked “Do Black Lives matter to you only when they serve your political purpose? Shouldn’t we be marching to get Black and brown children back safely into schools right now?” The tweet linked to a column that supported his rhetorical question”: Readers, many of us got involved in the Black Lives Matter marches last summer.

Shouldn’t we be marching to get Black and brown children back safely into schools right now? https://t.co/KIv7pijw1c — David Brooks (@nytdavidbrooks) January 29, 2021 The reason why many see this question as...

Tax time can be stressful, and for many, the headaches start with trying to figure out which forms to use. Thankfully, since the 2018 tax year, all tax forms have been consolidated into one redesigned 1040 form. Unlike previous years, when taxpayers used multiple forms — such as the 1040EZ and 1040A, depending on their income or deductions claimed — filers will now simply fill out additional schedules on top of the 1040 form. © RiverNorthPhotography / Getty Images/iStockphoto The new US Federal Income Tax Forms for the tax year of 2018 to be filed in 2019.

Pellicano, 76, was released from prison in 2019 following a 15-year sentence after being convicted of 78 counts of wiretapping, intimidation and racketeering.

    (CBS4) – The findings from a first-of-its-kind study show light pollution can increase the likelihood of a preterm birth. Professor Laura Argys from the University of Colorado Denver worked on the research along with experts at Lehigh University and Lafayette College. “Researchers discovered that light pollution leads to more than just wasted energy and washed-out starlight‚” CU Denver media officials wrote in a news release announcing the findings. “We discovered that increased light pollution is linked to some pretty severe health challenges,” Argys said. The study found light pollution’s effects on the body’s circadian rhythms can also lead to other issues for pregnant women, like a higher chance of delivering a baby with a reduced birthweight. Statistics from the CDC show that infants who are born too early can have a higher rate of disability and of dying. Argys is hopeful that the study will encourage more local communities to...

    After eight years of the end of the series “iCarly”, the protagonists are seen again and are ready to start filming the new series. Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor and Nathan Kress used their social networks to show off that they are already on the set where they will work on the new adventures of this unique girl.

    An organization of Chicago principals has put forward a phased reopening plan for the city’s schools that it believes could "end the divisive stalemate between district officials and [the] Chicago Teachers Union."  The idea comes as Chicago Public Schools (CPS) -- for the second day in a row -- is instructing parents not to send their children to its facilities for any in-person learning as its fight against the union continues. The two sides have not reached an agreement yet over reopening conditions during the coronavirus pandemic -- and the standoff is putting the district’s expected date of Feb. 1 for bringing K-8 students back for in-person classes in peril.  "We’re the ones they hand the plans off to, right?... There’s no more important group of people to get involved in that process than us," Troy LaRaviere, the president of the Chicago Principals and Administrators Association, said Wednesday in announcing his organization’s plan. "And for some inexplicable reason, the district did not do that and still continues to not consult us."  Pre-kindergarten students listen...

    Dante M. Taylor was raised to respect the police “100 percent.” That was what was expected of him as a kid growing up religious and conservative in Philadelphia, especially since his grandmother worked as a crossing guard. Civility was encouraged not just for decorum’s sake, but because it could very well save his life as a Black man. “We knew we needed to be mindful of how we act, how we presented ourselves, and how we spoke,” Taylor, who is 41, told The Daily Beast. Even that didn’t always help. In the late 1990s, a bike cop frisked Taylor as he stood on the street talking to his friend. Taylor felt the officer’s hands dig deep into his pockets; he swatted them away and then spent a night in jail for resisting.

    BERLIN (AP) — Countries with the least corruption have been best positioned to weather the health and economic challenges of the coronavirus pandemic, according to a closely-watched annual study released Thursday by an anti-graft organization. Transparency International’s 2020 Corruption Perceptions Index, which measures the perception of public sector corruption according to experts and businesspeople, concluded that countries that performed well invested more in health care, were “better able to provide universal health coverage and are less likely to violate democratic norms.” “COVID-19 is not just a health and economic crisis,” said Transparency head Delia Ferreira Rubio. “It is a corruption crisis – and one that we are currently failing to manage.” This year’s index showed the United States hitting a new low amid a steady decline under the presidency of Donald Trump, with a score of 67 on a scale where 0 is “highly corrupt” and 100 is “very...
    On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The ReidOut,” White House National Climate Adviser Gina McCarthy stated that there is a “commonality” between President Joe Biden’s climate executive orders and the Green New Deal, such as both asking how to turn climate change “into an opportunity to build the kind of future we want to hand to our children?” Host Joy Reid asked, “It sounds a lot like the Green New Deal…it’s not the Green New Deal in name, but those like AOC who have been pushing for that — because they’ve always said, look, make it about jobs, make it about employing people and finding people who dug for coal and saying, we’ll switch you over into these great, new great-paying jobs. Isn’t this essentially kind of the next step of the Green New Deal?” McCarthy responded, “Well, they both share an essential truth. They both focus on the science. They...

However, in a tweet, the district said remote learning would continue Thursday.  "CTU leadership has directed staff to remain home tomorrow," the district wrote. "Due to the union’s directive, we are unable to guarantee sufficient...

    George Springer, introduced by the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday, is joining a different club but not an unfamiliar situation. George Springer made his first appearance in a Blue Jays uniform on Wednesday as he prepares to join a young but talented club. It’s a situation he’s found himself in before. The Astros went from the bottom-feeders of baseball to a potential dynasty in just three short years. From losing 100 games three straight years, they won more than 100 between 2017-19, with two trips to the Fall Classic and four ALCS appearances. The Blue Jays made the playoffs for the first time in four years last season. And just like those Astros of 2015, it seems like that’s just the beginning. Springer, no longer a youngster but a veteran and one of the best outfielders in baseball, decided he wanted to be apart of it yet again. Next: Giants...
    In the final step of the settlement process, the Maryland Board of Public Works voted to approve a $3.5 million agreement between the University of Maryland and the family of Jordan McNair, a 19-year-old football player who died in June 2018 after collapsing from heat stroke during a team practice. The settlement, which was reached with the approval of the attorney general’s office, was announced Jan. 15. The Board of Public Works voted 3-0 to approve the settlement.

    (CNN)Vladimir Putin has tied Washington in knots for years. Now, with the Russian leader facing sudden political pressure at home, the United States is in a position to inflict some pain of its own.The days of a US President fawning over the Kremlin leader are over. According to a White House readout of Joe Biden's first call to Moscow, he got in Putin's ear on the treatment of opposition leader Alexey Navalny, Russia's crackdown on demonstrators, its alleged hack of the US government and Russian forces' assault on Ukraine. In a reflection of the pragmatism running through his foreign policy, Biden also confirmed to Putin that he wants to extend the START nuclear treaty.With Navalny's return home and associated protests challenging the Russian President's iron grip, the US might be now tempted to try to further destabilize Putin. Outspoken support for the detained Navalny would bolster Biden's promises to revive...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — There’s another round in the battle between CPS and teachers over the safe return to classrooms during the pandemic. CPS teachers from kindergarten through eighth grade were supposed to go back to schools for prep time on Wednesday. But now everybody’s staying home, even teachers who had already gone back to teach in person. In the latest twist, the Chicago Teachers Union told members who already had been back in class, teaching Pre-K and academic cluster students, to stay home Wednesday. As a result, CPS said it had no choice but to make everyone remote for the day. Mayor Lori Lightfoot said she’s just about had it. “I am deeply disappointed that after all this time, all these sessions, all the work to make our CPS school buildings are safe, no agreement has yet been reached,” Lightfoot said. On Wednesday, the Chicago Teachers Union tweeted : “There...

    An 'upsurge of matter' from deep beneath the Earth's crust is pushing Britain and America an inch and a half (4cm) further apart every year, a new study reveals.  UK experts studied seismic activity around the Mid-Atlantic Ridge (MAR) – the undersea mountain range that splits the Atlantic from north to south.  Using seismometers deployed on the ocean floor, they found evidence of an upwelling in the mantle – the material between the Earth's crust and its core – from depths of more than 370 miles (600 kilometres) beneath the MAR.   This upwelling is pushing the tectonic plates from below, causing the continents of Europe and Africa on one side and the Americas on the other to move further apart.   The geological phenomenon is widening the Atlantic Ocean, pushing Europe and the Amerrica an inch-and-a-half apart per year The data from the project provides the first large-scale and high-resolution imaging of...

    On Feb. 6, 2020, Timber Unity protesters showed up at the Oregon state capitol in Salem protesting a carbon cap-and-trade bill.Robin Loznak, Zuma Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.In March, my colleague Ali Breland and I wrote about a pro-logging, anti-climate group called Timber Unity that helped to scuttle Oregon legislation for cap-and-trade in 2019 and 2020. To the average Oregon voter, Timber Unity appeared to be an organic backlash fueled by frustrated rural voters in a state dominated by Democrats. The group’s rallies, which drew hundreds and sometimes thousands of truckers and loggers to the capitol, made it appear that it had broad support among Republican voters. But actually, Timber Unity was founded and bankrolled by the logging industry—specifically Andrew Miller, CEO of a timber company called Stimson Lumber. At Timber...

    A young TikTok user posted on this social network that she has a son of José Eduardo Derbez and called on him to recognize him. José Eduardo took it in the best way and although he said not to bother him, he asked the alleged mother of his son to clarify that it was a joke, as he received a large number of messages that required him to take a DNA test to verify said paternity. He also explained that there is not the slightest possibility that he has a lost son in Chihuahua and reiterated that he likes to be part of those ‘jokes’, but that we must put more enthusiasm into this type of dynamics. José Eduardo recently started a love affair with a mysterious young woman named Paola, although this time he wants to keep it a secret.
    Around 250,000 Jews were killed at the Sobibor Nazi death camp, located in Poland, and an excavation of the site reveals at least four children also died there during the Holocaust. Archaeologists working at the now closed camp uncovered four metal ID tags belonging to children ages five to 12, engraved with names, dates of birth and hometown. However, researchers say the tags appear to have been part of a private initiative by the parents and not given to them by the Nazi officials. The names include: Lea Judith De La Penha, Deddie Zak, Annie Kapper and David Juda Van der Velde. Yoram Haimi from the Israel Antiquities Authority, who was conducting the dig alongside Polish and Dutch colleagues, says: 'As far as we know, identity tags with children's names have only been found at Sobibor, and nowhere else.'

    DENVER (CBS4)– Denver police are investigating the operation of a system that is supposed to change stoplights when an emergency vehicle approaches. One person was killed Saturday and two others injured when a fire vehicle collided with a Honda Civic in the middle of a busy intersection. (credit: CBS) The question is, why were the fire rescue vehicle and the Honda Civic in the same spot at the same time? Britney Garcia was driving south on Broadway when the Honda passed her. “He was on the right of me and he went around the truck and then he tried to speed. He tried to beat the fire truck,” she told CBS4 investigator Rick Sallinger. Denver uses what’s called an Opticom system where an approaching emergency vehicle sends out a signal to a receiver on the stoplight to turn it green. It also turns the light red for crossing traffic. Denver...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Avoiding a potentially heated showdown over a proposal for a new community policing initiative in the Roseland neighborhood, Ald. Anthony Beale (9th) hammered out a compromise with the Chicago Police Department and the Lightfoot administration on Tuesday to pave the way for a so-called “COP House” on a particularly dangerous block in his ward. Beale said he had been in talks for nearly two years with City Hall and top brass at CPD to bring a community-oriented policing house (COP House) to Roseland, funded by a private donor. But Mayor Lori Lightfoot had pushed back on his proposal, telling Beale she could not support it without more specifics on how much it would cost, who would pay for it, and how it would fit with CPD’s existing community policing strategies. At a City Council Public Safety Committee meeting on Tuesday, Beale offered up a compromise after lengthy...

    President Biden will nix Justice Department contracts with private prisons via an executive order that he will sign on Tuesday following last summer's racial unrest. Biden won the 2020 election, in part, due to his popularity among black Democrats.

There are concerns in minority communities that those systems, and others, are biased against them.

The order doesn't apply to those used by the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies. In a separate presidential memorandum, Biden will ask Housing and Urban Development Secretary-designate...

    Shingeki no Kyojin, also known as Attack on Titan, continues to give a lot to talk about. And it is that not only is its last season currently being released for all its old and new fans, but also the last chapter, released last Sunday, achieved a score of 10/10 on the specialized site IMDb. There are few productions that have chapters with perfect scores. Although it often happens that some obtain this classification, generally fans of other series or trolls lower the score. For that reason a score of 9.9 is considered a 10 for the site. Despite this, strictly speaking, only two series have reached a ten out of ten; Shingeki no Kyojin and Breaking Bad.

The other came in 2014, when they swapped Stephen Drew and Kelly Johnson. It’s the 31st deal between the teams since the Red Sox infamously sold Babe Ruth to the Yankees for $100,000 in 1919.

    A record-breaking 28 trillion tonnes of ice — enough to cover the whole of the UK in a sheet over 300 feet thick — melted from the face of the Earth between 1994–2017. Researchers from the University of Leeds carried out the first ever global survey of ice loss using data collected from satellites orbiting our planet. The team found that the annual rate of ice loss increased by 65 per cent over the 23-year period — going from 0.8 trillion tons in the nineties up to 1.3 trillion tons.  The accelerating melt — which continues to get worse — has been driven largely by steep increases in losses from the polar ice sheets in Antarctica and Greenland. Ice melt serves to raise sea levels across the globe, increases the risk of flooding to coastal communities and endangers natural habitats that wildlife depend upon. Scroll down for video A...
