Apple Car Concept from Motor1.com And it is that apparently, joining Apple would not represent a significant gain for consolidated companies in the automotive industry.

    The modder community never ceases to amaze and their works are increasingly sophisticated. These tech geeks are capable of modifying just about anything. We have already seen it with portable versions of consoles such as the Nintendo 64 or the Wii, or updated versions of the Altair 8800. As if that were not enough, now it is the turn of the new generation of consoles. Modding Cafe has completely redesigned a PS5 and looks literally from another planet. The work has consisted mainly of equip the PS5 with a new cooling system. For this they had to get rid of the original shell of the console.

Of course, if they have months of time to carry out a project of such magnitude. A...

    A New York Times columnist has resigned from his position at the Aspen Institute after he failed to disclose his salary for the role to the paper.   David Brooks was on the payroll of the Aspen Institute's Weave project, which started in May 2018, it emerged Thursday. The Times said that while his work there was approved in 2018, the current Opinion Editors were unaware of his additional salary. Brooks' Weave salary was disclosed by Buzzfeed as it highlighted how the columnist also had several troubling conflicts of interest with the think tank's funders.  He had continued to write about Facebook for the Times, even when the social media giant was among the donors to Weave. It added that Brooks had failed to disclose his salary to the Times' readers as he wrote about Weave itself, describing it as a project focused on 'building community and weaving the social fabric'...

    With all that’s been going on in California during the pandemic, it’s been difficult at times to keep track of the latest state-sponsored debacles. You’d need a scorecard, a good set of reading glasses and a special prosecutor to stay on top of it all. The botched vaccine rollout, mixed messaging and delivery inequities are enough to keep anyone busy. And when the state introduced the My Turn vaccination scheduling system, which was supposed to straighten things out, nobody was surprised to learn that it’s full of bugs, or that people of means managed to get vaccinations intended for low-income communities hardest hit by COVID-19. On top of that, we’ve had one of the greatest boondoggles in state history, with billions of dollars scammed from the Employment Development Department by prison inmates and others, while needy, out-of-work people were left penniless and waiting for months to get hold of anyone...

    The International Public Tender LO-021W3N003-E326-2020 included works for the elaboration of the executive project, construction of the electrified railway for the Mayan Train, and the adaptation of the existing road platform. In addition to the ruling, the flag was launched today to start the works. At the event, André Georges Foullon Van Lissum, undersecretary of the agency, said that President Andrés Manuel López Obrador decided that it would be the Armed Forces who would carry out this fraction of the route because it can be considered the banner of the project. “Because it is located within the most important tourist corridor in the region and requires a thorough analysis of the possible technical solutions that derive from a fast, safe and functional construction,” he explained. Stretch of discord Section 5 of the Mayan Train has been the most difficult to award. Initially, the asset manager BlackRock aimed to...

    Ten female athletes seek damages after findings of abuse against San Jose State trainer 8 Democrats defect on $15 minimum wage hike © michael dantas/Agence France-Presse/Getty Images OUTSIDE THE BOX Load Error Despite wealthy countries such as the U.S. ramping up COVID-19 vaccination efforts, it still may take years to vaccinate the world, especially poorer countries, and the economic and humanitarian impacts could be devastating. But an injection of just $25 billion into global vaccine production efforts by the U.S. government could save millions of lives and help prevent economic disaster. The most up-to-date numbers paint incredibly different futures between wealthy and low-income countries. At the current rate of vaccination, analysts predict that developing countries, including almost all of Southeast Asia, may not reach meaningful vaccine coverage until 2023. Comparatively, President Joe Biden has promised that the U.S. will have enough vaccine doses to inoculate every adult within the...
    Finally Friday arrived and with it a lot of musical premieres. Despite the fact that the industry has not yet recovered from the blow it received when the coronavirus became a pandemic and concerts and festivals have not returned, many artists did not stop working during all this time. On the contrary, some began to put together extremely interesting projects, as in the case of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak. It was in 2016 that the Hawaiian singer released his latest studio album, 24K Magic, although later he collaborated with artists such as Cardi B, Gucci Mane and Kodak Black. For his part, the rapper gave us one of his best albums in 2019, Fortune, and last year he released the single “Jewelz” and we saw him participating in songs by rising musicians, such as The Game and India Shawn.

    New York : A poll by the YouGov site and The Economist magazine reveals that the new stimulus package is very popular with Americans. Photo: NOEL CELIS / . / . Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin will probably not be very well received the next time he returns home. His home state is one with a popularity rating of almost 70% approval of the $ 1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief stimulus project. Senator Johnson plans to have the Senate Clerk read aloud the entire nearly 700-page bill, which could take about 20 hours, as explained by the Lex18 site. Because unanimous consent is required to forego reading the bill, there is little Democrats can do to stop Johnson’s wish. In a tweet that was released Wednesday night by Senator Johnson, he argues that the bill should be read aloud because it ensured that much of the...
    Movie theater / Facebook / Twitter / YouTube / Instagram / News / Discord / Forums BioShock was one of the most important games that debuted in the era of PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Thanks to the impact of its game system and its narrative there were attempts to adapt the IP to the cinema, but they did not pay off. This is unfortunate, because there were big creative plans for the project and the director of the film talked about them. Screenwriter and director Gore Verbinski, who you may know from his work on various installments of Pirates of the Caribbean, would be in charge of the film’s script and direction. As we told you, Universal Pictures was interested in the project, but in the end they did not give it the green light because it required a lot of money and would have a classification not suitable...
    Since time immemorial, our country has given a lot of extremely talented artists. However, very few are those who manage to take the next step towards “the big leagues”, because not all agencies and record companies are betting on these women. That is why They themselves have had to get ahead and promote themselves so that thousands of people know their proposal and songs. Little by little we have seen more female presence within the Mexican music scene, especially in the festivals that are organized around our country. But we also have to be very honest, despite the fact that an effort has been made to include them in the most important cartels in Mexico, the representation of girls in these scenarios is still far from being the one that at least they deserve to stand out.

    Evva Karr was frustrated. During talks with creators, they’d begun to notice a theme: the conversation always seemed to turn to funding. Developers wanted to know how HyperDot creator Charles McGregor and Karr, who helped publish it, had shipped the game. Inevitably, the developers would share their own experiences. “While some of those deals were good news, others were just kind of shocking and really unimaginable to me,” Karr says. “There were just a lot of folks who were getting bad deals, not knowing what good deals even look like.” Karr, the founder and CEO of Glitch, wanted “a whole new damn table” — a way for developers to play with new ideas and make games that might be unappealing to traditional publishers. Earlier this year, they created Moonrise, a fund that promises to help a handful of candidates annually. It’s a collective of backers that range from directors...

Although the construction of townhouses was quickly announced, the land remained untouched and was eventually bought by the Conservation Fund in 2016.

Brooks, who also appears weekly on PBS NewsHour, takes an additional salary from his work with the Aspen Institute's Weave project which started in May 2018, according to Buzzfeed.  That same year Facebook gave $250,000 to the Washington DC think tank for Weave.

    By Saeed Azhar DUBAI (Reuters) - It seems an unlikely vision, a megacity in the desert with no cars or roads, all run by machines that can recognise your face. Yet preparations for NEOM, the $500 billion signature project in Prince Mohammed bin Salman's drive to diversify Saudi Arabia's economy, are well underway. The organisation behind the development, expected to be close to the size of Belgium when it is completed, will hire 700 people this year, according to Simon Ainslie, the venture's chief operating officer. While NEOM is being sold as a vision of a brighter future, international investors have yet to bite. The scale of the project is vast and the region already has well-established transport and business hubs in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Qatar. The development is also inextricably linked to the Crown Prince, who as de facto leader of the kingdom has drawn ire over Saudi's...
    LA TRIBUNE – Atis has just celebrated its tenth anniversary. Looking back, how do you define social innovation and what is Atis’ role? ELISE DEPECKER – Social innovation is a new way of responding to an existing or emerging social or environmental problem in the territory but poorly covered by public or private mechanisms. Among the emerging problems we can cite, for example, the aging of the population in rural areas, and among the structural problems the issue of long-term unemployment which is tackled by the Zero Unemployment Territory initiative. Social innovation can come from a local community, a small or large business, a collective of citizens or project leaders. Rather, Atis focuses on supporting these individual entrepreneurs who seek to provide their own answers. Atis generally intervenes very early on, at the idea stage, to structure it. It is, for example, the Fumainerie which defends a vision of the...

    The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) heard arguments Tuesday on the legal challenge to two voting laws in Arizona that challengers claim discriminate against racial minorities. But Project 21, a black leadership network, issued remarks to the press warning that race is not the issue in the case. According to the SCOTUS website, the issues before the court are: (1) Whether Arizona’s out-of-precinct policy, which does not count provisional ballots cast in person on Election Day outside of the voter’s designated precinct, violates Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act; and (2) whether Arizona’s ballot-collection law, which permits only certain persons (i.e., family and household members, caregivers, mail carriers and elections officials) to handle another person’s completed early ballot, violates Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act or the 15th Amendment. “The challengers argue that both the policy and the law discriminate against racial minorities in Arizona, and the...

    Over the weekend Zine Quest 3, a high-profile event at Kickstarter celebrating the independent tabletop role-playing game (TTRPG) community, came to a close. The promotion had helped shine a light on dozens of small creators around the world. But in its final hours, Kickstarter’s vice president and head of community Luke Crane launched a campaign that came under fire for its inclusion of controversial game designer Adam Koebel. The campaign was ultimately canceled. Crane founded Zine Quest several years back when he was Kickstarter’s head of games. He’s also a successful game designer and publisher in his own right, and it’s that time spent close to the metal of the TTRPG scene that’s given him insight into that space — and, likely, contributed to tabletop games’ continued dominance on that platform. Crane is now a vice president at Kickstarter, charged with leading its efforts at building and maintaining community. With...

(AP) — Fugitive slaves once stood on the banks of the Ohio River in Kentucky, gazing across its waters at the Indiana coastline and realizing that freedom was within a mile. Some jumped in and swam across, some waited patiently, or fearfully, for conductors of the Underground Railroad to signal when it was safe to cross. Some never made it at all. Their faces, their stories, the outcome of their crossing often unknown, forgotten by history, the outcome of their tales seemingly unimportant, whether they made it safely into the free state of Indiana or if they were captured by slave catchers and returned to their masters in Kentucky and throughout the South. Today, somewhere beneath the modernized Ohio River riverwalk in downtown Louisville, footprints of the unknown lay buried beneath centuries of industrialized change.
