    With the threat of more travel restrictions looming, scientists can now transport you anywhere in the world 'in the body of a robot' to visit your loved ones.  Cyberselves, a University of Sheffield spin-out firm, has created an app that gives you a robot's point of view through a VR headset and handheld motion controllers.  The 'telepresence' technology lets people see what the robot sees, hear what the robot hears, feel what the robot feels and move around in its body, via the internet. It could be used to help people visit and hug relatives, explore tourist attractions, give healthcare and assess hazardous environments, according to experts.  The Sheffield spin-out is one of only two British finalists in the ANA Avatar XPRIZE global robotics competition.  The winning company, to be decided next year, will receive the lion's share of a $8 million (£6 million) prize pot to further develop their technology.  Users see what the robot sees and control the robot with their own body movements. The system works with 'any robot located anywhere in the world' HOW DOES IT WORK? Human...
    DEAR MISS MANNERS: My husband and I have been married for 19 years. He has two daughters from a previous marriage. They have actively hated me since the very beginning. They are now grown women, 41 and 37 years old. After our last visit, I have decided to quietly bow out — it is long past time, and my husband agrees. I will still make sure birthdays, Christmas and other special occasions are observed by their father. He can visit them and they can visit him as they all wish. I obviously won’t be there the next time they’re all together. What should my husband say? Neither of us is looking for a huge blowup among them. GENTLE READER: “She couldn’t make it this time” — repeated each time as if it were the first. Miss Manners offers this as the surest path to the quiet you understandably desire. She does not pretend that it will reform bad behavior, mend relationships, or satisfy those who feel that brutal honesty is better for family health than avoiding angry blowups. Related Articles...

Disguised as legitimate apps for activities such as yoga, the dodgy downloads record video and audio and steal contacts, images, messages, and more. 2More than 23 dodgy apps on the Google Play Store have been exposed by researchersCredit: Alamy That's because they're loaded with PhoneSpy, a piece of software that snoops on people on the sly, researchers from Zimperium report. In a blog post published last week, the US security firm revealed that more than 1,000 Android users have been infected with the newly discovered malware. In total, 23 PhoneSpy apps were unearthed. They were not available on the Play Store, Google's official app store for the billions of phones that use its Android operating system.

The infected devices are all based in South Korea, although researchers have not ruled out that infections have taken place in other countries. "These malicious Android...

    How Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Are "Staying Connected" Amid Busy Work Schedules Growth ETF vs. value ETF: What’s the difference? Monday night was not kind to the NBA's best teams through the first week of the season. When games began, we had seven undefeated teams remaining. When games concluded, we had three. The Denver Nuggets, Minnesota Timberwolves, Charlotte Hornets and Washington Wizards all fell on Monday, leaving us with just three undefeated teams remaining.  © Provided by CBS Sports The Utah Jazz are here relatively predictably. Their net rating suggested that they played at the level of roughly a 65-win team last season, and they've only taken the floor twice thus far. The Golden State Warriors have an MVP candidate in Stephen Curry, so their presence atop the standings isn't terribly surprising. And then we have the Chicago Bulls, offseason darlings who have backed up the preseason optimism thus far with four wins in four tries.  Eventually, all three teams are going to lose games. It should surprise no one to hear that no NBA team has ever...

    A series of horrifying videos posted to social media show a Subway worker in Providence, Rhode Island, walking through food on the counter before throwing it on the floor, decorating the bathroom with sandwich ingredients and drinking out of bottles before putting them back. Jumanne, who goes by Jumanne Way - a play on the fast-food restaurant Subway - on YouTube, posted a series of stomach-churning videos showing him vandalizing the restaurant. In a video he uploaded just yesterday, the employee showed silver tubs of ingredients laid out on the floor.  He then recorded himself as he walked across the food before placing the tubs back behind the counter - presumably to use in customers' sandwiches.

    The moment came and went in a flash. “I looked to my left, I just saw the front of the Jeep — it just rammed me,” Tyrone Belton said. “I really thought my kids made it across the street.” But they hadn’t — Belton, his 8-year-old daughter Faith and 6-year-old daughter Heavyn were all struck while walking in the crosswalk at Wheeler Road and Mississippi Avenue in Southeast D.C. on National Walk to School Day. Police said it happened approximately 9:15 a.m., Wednesday, Oct. 6. Belton had a broken ankle, Faith had a broken leg, and Heavyn will require surgeries for facial injuries, the father said. The driver was charged at the scene with several violations. Thankfully, they’re all home, and Belton is trying to help them recover from the trauma. He said both daughters have been quiet and subdued. “It’s kind of hard to see them like that. They literally will put a smile on your face, and you don’t even have to know them,” he said. “They will light up your world.” Still, he understands his daughters have...

    It’s approximately month 1,000 of the pandemic. By this point, a lot of us probably have a mountain of leftover takeout utensils and sauce packets gathering dust in a drawer somewhere. Great news: They can be put to good use. L.A. Sanitation and Environment’s City Facilities Recycling Program is collecting them throughout October to use at a downtown food kitchen and pantry. “Do you have a drawer full of condiment packets, sealed packs of plastic utensils, and wrapped straws?

    Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer took to the Senate floor Wednesday to accuse Republicans of 'pure stupidity' for failing allow Democrats to move legislation to hike the debt ceiling to prevent a default. Schumer spoke a day after his counterpart Mitch McConnell objected when he sought unanimous consent for a move to suspend the debt ceiling by a simple majority, relying on Democratic votes. He said he paraphrased economist Austan Goolsbee, a top economic advisor to former President Barack Obama who met with Democrats Wednesday.  'Throughout history there have certainly been governments that have defaulted on their debt, but never has there been a default caused by pure stupidity,' Schumer said. 'In this case, Republican stupidity,' he added.  Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer ripped Republicans for blocking efforts to raise the nation's borrowing limit, with a potential default coming in mid-October if Congress does not act He spoke hours after the failure of his latest effort, with Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warning 'extraordinary measures' by the government to meet its obligations will run out by October 18th.  McConnell has repeatedly...
    U.S. military veteran Hector Barajas pictured in 2018. He won a return to the U.S. that year A number of deported U.S. military veterans were allowed by officials to briefly cross into the United States through a California port of entry this week to receive the COVID-19 vaccination, Border Report said. Among them was Alex Murillo, who was deported to Mexico by the U.S. nearly a decade ago. “Even for the short time that we’re going to get across it’s very important for us. I’m excited, I want to get my vaccine,” Murillo said in the report. Deported veterans lose access to federal benefits they’ve earned through their service. The fact of the matter is that they’re not only owed care by the U.S. government after serving in uniform, but they’re also owed a return ticket home. This has been recognized through a number of actions announced by the Biden administration earlier this year. The Biden administration in June formally announced an effort to bring back deported veterans, as well as deported family members. By being able to return to the U.S., veterans would again be able to access...
    When someone you love dies, the world as you’ve known it is totally upended. One way people cope, added psychologist Sherry Cormier, is by trying to find some sort of certainty. This need for structure is probably one factor behind the popularity that latched onto the “five stages of grief” over 50 years ago and hasn’t yet let up, said David Kessler, who founded grief.com, a resource aiming to help people deal with uncharted territory related to grief. Kessler coauthored “On Grief and Grieving” with the late Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross. A Swiss-American psychiatrist and pioneer of studies on dying people, Kübler-Ross wrote “On Death and Dying,” the 1969 book in which she proposed the patient-focused, death-adjustment pattern, the “Five Stages of Grief.” Those stages are denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. “In the actual book, she talked about more than five stages,” Kessler said. “Think about the context of 1969 — doctors and hospital personnel were not talking about the end-of-life process. … Elisabeth really hoped ‘On Death and Dying’ would start the conversation.” Since then, there has been extensive...

    Across our 40-year history, the Washington Business Journal has followed thousands of developments from concept to completion — from single-family homes to soaring towers, corporate campuses to massive planned communities, traditional museums to over-the-top entertainment venues. From the downtown core to the exurbs, these efforts are representative of Greater Washington’s evolution into a diverse region of roughly 7 million people. We’ve also seen our share of projects that just didn’t make it. They are the proposals that never had a chance or the endeavors that fell just short, often because of opposition, economic collapse or simply a lack of capital to see them through. Click through the gallery above to see our rundown of the top 10 real estate or development projects that never happened in Greater Washington. It’ll bring back memories of what could, or never should, have been. Tell us what major projects we missed in this roundup. Email them to Michael Neibauer at mneibauer@bizjournals.com.

    Actor and comedian David Spade slammed the woke mob and those who dig through people’s lives “to make sure sure they take them down.” After being asked by TMZ about Mike Richards being canceled  and removed has producer of Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune over his past podcast jokes, Spade said, “Well, that’s just the way it is.” “I think he took himself out of the host job trying to salvage his career. I mean, it just unraveled,” the comedian added of Richards leaving Jeopardy!. “The hard part is if any good luck happens to anyone, there’s a team of people digging through their life to make sure they take them down, and that’s the hard part,” Spade added of living in the era of cancel culture. “Because — who’s doing that? Who has time? Who cares enough? That’s a tough life. You dig under anybody in the world, you find something.” Watch Below: When asked how he manages to remain as funny as he once was, Spade said, “I’m not.” “I’m pulling from the same seven jokes we’re all allowed to use,” Spade laughed. “I just...
    Tuesday, Biden National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan did not rule out providing aid to the Taliban following the United States’ withdrawal out of Afghanistan. Sullivan told ABC News’ “Good Morning America” that giving aid to the Taliban “will be about whether the terrorist organization follows through on its commitments,” including safe passage for Americans and Afghan allies. “[F]irst of all, we do believe that there is an important dimension of humanitarian assistance that should go directly to the people of Afghanistan,” Sullivan outlined. “They need help with respect to health and food aid and other forms of subsistence, and we do intend to continue that. Secondly, when it comes to our economic and development assistance relationship with the Taliban, that will be about the Taliban’s actions. It will be about whether they follow through on their commitments, their commitments to safe passage for Americans and Afghan allies, their commitment to not allow Afghanistan to be a base from which terrorists can attack the United States or any other country, their commitments with respect to upholding international obligations. It’s going to...
    Ron Clifford remembers sharing the details of an important business meeting with his sister Ruth, who advised, "Ron, stand out." So he wore a new suit and a bright yellow tie. On that morning's ferry to Manhattan a man drinking champagne complimented his clothes, boosting his confidence. Kevin Leary worked as a chef at the time, preparing sauces and pasta for a luncheon. Joseph Pfeifer, a battalion chief with the Fire Department of New York, had 20 years and six days on the job. That meant he could have retired six days prior, but he was enjoying his time with the department so much that he wasn't even thinking about leaving. It was a beautiful day, all told. Pfiefer and his crew were checking out a reported gas leak in a street. One of them was filming the job when American Airlines Flight 11 roared over them, seizing their attention before slamming into the World Trade Center's North Tower. On September 11, 2001 terrorists attacked the United States by slamming that passenger jet and United Airlines Flight 175 into...
    British troops in Kabul on Thursday confirmed a horrifying rumor, telling reporters that desperate women in Kabul are throwing their babies over razor-wire barriers in the hope soldiers will catch them and take them out of Afghanistan.

An unnamed British Parachute Regiment officer, possibly the same one, gave a similar account to the UK Independent on Thursday. “The mothers were desperate, they were getting beaten by the Taliban.

    President Joe Biden said the Taliban is “going through sort of an existential crisis” and credited the group for giving Americans “safe passage” to get out of Afghanistan, during an interview that aired Thursday. Biden sat down with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos in what marked his first time answering questions from the press since the Taliban overtook Afghanistan. Stephanopoulos asked the president whether he believes the Taliban has changed, prompting Biden to declare “no” before clarifying his answer. “Let me put it this way,” the president said. “I think they’re going through sort of an existential crisis about do they want to be recognized by the international community as being a legitimate government. I’m not sure they do.” (RELATED: ‘Where Would I Go?’: Afghanistan’s First Female Mayor Says She’s Waiting For Taliban To Come And Kill Her) Stephanopoulos interjected, openly wondering if the Taliban cares about “their beliefs more,” to which Biden agreed and went on to give them props for providing “safe passage for Americans to get out.” “But they also care about whether they have food to eat, whether...

    American Express invited the great-grandson of the Nation of Islam's founder to tell its staff capitalism is 'racist' and has put workers through critical race theory (CRT) training to teach them to 'identify their privileges' and 'not speak over black colleagues'. Internal documents, obtained by Manhattan Institute Fellow Christopher F. Rufo for the New York Post, show how the banking giant - which saw its revenue swell to a whopping $31.36 billion last year - is telling its workforce behind the scenes that the same capitalist system that pays their salaries was founded on 'exploitative extractive systemic racism.'    The documents include a promo page and partial transcript for a company event where Khalil Muhammad, the great-grandson of Nation of Islam founder Elijah Muhammad, was invited to speak.   In it, Muhammad told Amex workers that capitalism was based on 'racist logics and forms of domination' and urged the credit card giant's execs and workforce to look at their own company's role in that system.   Amex's revenue grew 6.5 percent in the last fiscal year while profits for the last quarter topped $2.3...
    A New York City activist has become an internet star by riffling through chain stores' trash to shame them for throwing away useable food, medical supplies, designer clothes and furniture. Anna Sacks - who goes by the name 'thetrashwalker' on Instagram and TikTok - has been recording her 'trash walks,' where she roams Manhattan's streets and sifts through garbage bags, since 2018.    Some of the videos show mountains of garbage bags full of unopened food and sealed disposable products from places like Party City that can still be eaten or used.  Other videos - like the one she posted March from outside of a CVS - show how companies purposefully rip the packages of edible food, hygiene products like tampons, medical supplies and an assortment of personal care like hairbrushes and dump them out before throwing them away.  She has been contacted by other environmentalists with similar aims, and shared how one man even found a live parakeet discarded outside a Petco store in its cage.   Scroll down for video.  Anna Sacks - aka 'thetrashwalker' on Instagram and TikTok -...
    Facebook is looking for a way to analyze encrypted messages to continue segmenting advertising, but without putting privacy at risk. Meet the balance between privacy and advertising is tricky and on Facebook they work with this objective. Like most large internet companies, their benefits come primarily from advertising and this has to be as segmented as possible so that they pay for it. The latest news on the matter comes from The information and, as published, “Facebook is empowering a team of artificial intelligence researchers, including a key Microsoft contract, to study ways to analyze encrypted data without decrypting it“. The objective of the project is clear: analyze and take advantage of all the information that passes through its servers. Applications such as WhatsApp added the encryption of messages that was requested a long time ago, but in the multinational they do not want to waste all the information to which they could have access. Being an administrator of a group chat on WhatsApp or Telegram may seem simple, but it can become a complicated task in case of...
    Wild video captured the moment two men were shoved through a hotel's plate glass window during an apparent brawl over counterfeit tickets to Chicago's Lollapalooza music festival.   Footage posted by a local reporter shows the two men crashing through the window of the Congress Hotel across the street from Lollapalooza's entrance in Grant Park at around 5.45pm on Sunday. One victim, a 29-year-old man, quickly drags himself away from the hotel with his leg bloodied from shattered glass.  A 26-year-old man who allegedly pushed the victims is seen in a white t-shirt fleeing the scene. He was taken into custody late Sunday. The suspect was accused of selling fake Lollapalooza wristbands to the two victims who then confronted him when the fight broke out.  The incident came as this year's music festival - which drew about 100,000 each day from Thursday to Sunday - was already facing fierce scrutiny over the decision to let it take place despite coronavirus concerns.   Wild video captured the moment two men were shoved through a hotel's plate glass window during an apparent...

    A social justice group has sent a letter to white Democrats in two wealthy Texas neighborhoods calling on them to pledge their children will not apply to Ivy League schools so that black students can get a spot instead. Dallas Justice Now (DJN), which appears to have been set up recently, is asking white allies to commit to 'making sacrifices to correct centuries of injustice.'  The group is specifically calling on people to sign its 'college pledge' not to send their children to Ivy League or US News & World Report Top 50 schools 'and instead leave those spots open for students from Black, LatinX, and other marginalized backgrounds who were denied access to these institutions for hundreds of years.'  The group said in a press release it has sent the pledge out to the '95 percent white Highland Park and University Park neighborhoods'.
