    YouTube's overeager AI might have misinterpreted a conversation about chess as racist language. Last summer, a YouTuber who produces popular chess videos saw his channel blocked for including what the site called 'harmful and dangerous' content. YouTube didn't explain why it had blocked Croatian chess player Antonio Radic, also known as 'Agadmator,' but service was restored 24 hours later. Computer scientists at Carnegie Mellon suspect Radic's discussion of 'black vs. white' with a grandmaster accidentally triggered YouTube's AI filters. Running simulations with software trained to detect hate speech, they found more than 80 percent of chess videos flagged for hate speech lacked any—but did include terms like 'black,' 'white,' 'attack' and 'threat.' The researchers suggest social-media platforms incorporate chess language into their algorithms to prevent further confusion.

    Christina Ricci has detailed how she once had to hide knives in the house because she feared her now-estranged husband James Heerdegen could kill her after he allegedly said he would only feel sorry for her if she was 'dismembered into small pieces', court documents show. The 40-year-old actress has also accused Heerdegen of allegedly beating her, throwing her into a fire pit and mocking her with pig noises before she filed for divorce in June last year. Ricci's allegations were included in a request for a domestic violence restraining order against Heerdegen, which a judge approved late on Wednesday. Photos of bruises on her hands, wrists and arms were included in the court documents, which were obtained by TMZ, as proof of Heerdegen's alleged abuse. As a result, a judge ordered Heerdegen to remain at least 100 yards away from Ricci and their 6-year-old son Freddie. He also cannot...
    RAGING Sir Alex Ferguson 'battered' Gary Pallister after scoring twice against Liverpool - for accidentally leaking state secrets.

    As President-elect Joe Biden continues to announce his administration picks, one thing is becoming clear: The media’s coverage of Democratic cabinet appointees is far softer than its coverage of Republican cabinet appointees. Freelance writer Drew Holden pointed out the differences with a lengthy Twitter thread Thursday and Friday. He focused on how the media reported Biden picking Pete Buttigieg for Secretary of Transportation versus their coverage when President Donald Trump announced Betsy DeVos as the Secretary of Education. Both Buttigieg and DeVos had something in common upon being chosen for their respective positions – neither had much experience. How the media reported this similarity, though, differed greatly. (RELATED: A Look At Media Bias In Coverage Of Different Governors’ Responses To Coronavirus) With Buttigieg, much of the media honed in on his story about proposing to his husband Chasten at the Chicago O’Hare airport. Buttigieg declared that he has “a personal love...
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – It was another weekend with signs up and voices raised in Sacramento, but this time, many walked away with a lot of damage to deal with. “They threw eggs. They threw glass bottles. They threw Molotov cocktails, explosives,” said Jason Phillips. Over 150 officers stood between President Donald Trump supporters and protesters at the Capitol on Saturday, the Sacramento Police Department said. “I just can’t believe people can do things this bad and walk away,” said Shannon Lewis. Lewis got back to her vehicle to find every window smashed out, and even the seats were coated in eggs. “I was just out here to support everybody and be a part of it and this happens to me?” said Lewis. Multiple altercations took place but were broken up by law enforcement. “They destroyed vehicles lined up on the Capitol here – $50,000-plus in damage, I’m sure, done to...
    ATASCADERO, San Luis Obispo County (CBS / AP) — Days after the discovery and swift disappearance of two shining metal monoliths half a world apart, another towering structure has popped up, this time at the pinnacle of a trail on the Central Coast. Its straight sides and height are similar to one discovered in the Utah desert and another found in Romania. Like those structures, the origin of the California edifice is also mysterious. It’s at the top of a hill in Atascadero, halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, KEYT-TV reported Wednesday. The tall, silver structure drew hikers to the area after photos were posted on social media.

    The Internal Revenue Service still has about one million 2020 tax returns to process after the coronavirus pandemic and distribution of millions of stimulus checks upended operations, the agency’s commissioner told federal lawmakers on Friday. “We have done all that we can really do,” said IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig, talking to members of the House Ways and Means Oversight Subcommittee. He said the committee still hears from constituents who haven’t received their 2020 refunds. The approximate one million still-unprocessed returns are down from 2.5 million unopened returns in October, the last time Rettig testified about IRS operations in a tax season like none other. There’s now 3 million pieces of unopened mail, down from 5.3 million. There are currently 6.8 million returns in process – which, Rettig explained, are returns that have gone through the IRS systems. “On behalf of the Internal Revenue Service and every employee,...

    Following a canceled trip to a cemetery in France dedicated to fallen U.S. service members in 2018, President Trump instead picked out art pieces he wanted to take home. Trump had several pieces of art in the U.S. ambassador's historic Paris residence removed and loaded onto Air Force One, including a portrait, a bust, and a set of silver figurines to be brought back to the White House, according to Bloomberg. News claims about Trump's canceled trip to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery emerged last week in a report by the Atlantic that said, in part, that the president dismissed the idea of going to a ceremony because he was worried about his hair getting messed up in rainy conditions and didn't care about the American war dead. The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg, whose reporting has been partially confirmed by other news outlets, relied on unnamed sources who said Trump called dead...
    SWANTON — As the CZU Lightning Complex Fire tore through northern Santa Cruz County last week, the caretakers of the coastal Swanton Pacific Ranch were stunned. The 3,200-acre preserve off Highway 1 north of Davenport – run by Cal Poly San Luis Obispo since 1993 as an unmatched bio-diverse lab for forest management and sustainability research – had seen threatening fires before, notably the Lockheed Fire in 2009. But nothing had damaged its vital infrastructure or the frozen-in-time homes that served as local historical touchstones. The span of good fortune ended Aug. 18, however, when ranch director and Cal Poly professor Brian Dietterick and his staff found themselves scrambling to evacuate the area as flames descended toward the ranch — a late-in-life gift to the university from Cal Poly alum Al Smith, the San Jose native who founded Orchard Supply Hardware. “Even when (the fire) was on top of Last...
    Here’s a cautionary tale from Grand Rapids, Michigan, where an investigative reporter for WOOD-TV tweets that Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s sabotage of the U.S. Postal Service continues. “Internal sources say mail sorting machines are being dismantled at downtown GR post office,” reporter Heather Walker tweeted Wednesday. “Process started yesterday. Order came from Postmaster General DeJoy.” Process started yesterday—the same day that Trump-appointed Postmaster General Louis DeJoy supposedly said he would “suspend” the changes he’s been implementing that have slowed mail delivery to a crawl across the country. DeJoy issued the statement after news of his efforts to hamstring mail delivery drew front-page headlines across the country last week, but he also said nothing about reversing the measures he’s already taken to date. Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel responded to Walker’s tweet: “When people asked why we were determined to continue our lawsuit against the Postmaster General despite his “promise” to discontinue efforts to dismantle the USPS-this is why.” DeJoy said post office hours...

Adding salt to the wound, looters could be heard joking about it on cellphone video. It all came at the expense of Elias Silhi, who has owned Tony’s Delicatessen for nearly 30 years. It has been four weeks since the looting and Silhi is still getting estimates on all the damage. “It was just like a bomb went through the place, like a war zone,” said Silhi.
