A man accused of throwing a child from the Mall of America’s 3rd floor had been banned from the site

(CNN)The man arrested for allegedly pushing or throwing a boy from the third floor of the Mall of America in Minnesota had been banned from the mall in the past and once told police he had anger issues, court records show. “The child is still alive, he’s still receiving care, and I think we’re just asking for thoughts and prayers for that child to recover,” Potts told reporters outside his police department Saturday. At this point, police do not believe there is a relationship between the family of the child and the suspect, Potts said. Investigators are trying to figure out the motive, he said. “(Through) our investigative work and witnesses that we’ve spoken to, we feel confident saying that …

PSA: Julian Assange’s cat appears to be safe

(CNN)Anyone who’s been worried about the status of Julian Assange’s cat can rest easy. “We can confirm that Assange’s cat is safe. Assange asked his lawyers to rescue him from embassy threats in mid-October. They will be reunited in freedom,” the WikiLeaks post reads. Assange got the cat in 2016 while he was holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy. The cat became an internet sensation, posing with Assange in photos on Twitter and Instagram under the handle @EmbassyCat. The Twitter account hasn’t been active since 2018, while the Instagram account hasn’t been active since 2017. In 2018, a judge told Assange he had to abide by new rules imposed by the embassy, which included paying for and taking care of …

2 children killed as storms lash Texas

(CNN)Storms hammered east Texas on Saturday, with two children killed when a tree fell on a car, authorities said. The entire town of Franklin and neighboring Bremond lost electricity, with power expected to be restored Saturday night. To the north, dime-sized hail pounded the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

How did a tech-loving toddler lock his dad out of his iPad for 48 years?

It’s scary how quickly small children figure out how to use digital technology. For some parents, by the time their kid hits seven, they’ve become the most tech-savvy person in the house. But all techy tykes have to start somewhere. So when the three-year-old child of New Yorker writer Even Osnos couldn’t figure out the password to his iPad, they wouldn’t stop trying. Look, when you wanna watch see Curious George, it can’t wait. Unfortunately, the repeated failed attempts locked Osnos out of his iPad for over 25,000,000 minutes, that’s 48 years. By the time he could unlock it, the iPad wouldn’t probably be obsolete. Uh, this looks fake but, alas, it’s our iPad today after 3-year-old tried (repeatedly) to …

Museum’s ‘injustice’ over women’s art

The issue of gender inequality in exhibitions has affected galleries and museums across the UK. Media playback is unsupported on your device Media captionOne art student said women need to show “what we’ve got on offer” Ms James said: “You start thinking, do you have to be an old white male to be showing, and visible, in the National Museum? Really, it is extraordinary that women are under the radar. “If you don’t have women showing, what message is it sending out? It’s sending out a negative image to women and they’ve really got to feel positive and confident because it’s all about confidence, really.” Image copyright Gillian Ayres Estate/ Alan Cristea Gallery Image caption Blow Up 2 by Gillian …

Uber and Lyft may look the same, but their visions are not

New York (CNN Business)At first blush, it can be hard to tell Uber and Lyft’s businesses apart. Both companies offer rides on demand, from a mix of cars, bikes and scooters. They rely on a vast workforce of independent contractors, many of whom drive for both companies. Uber and Lyft (LYFT) even share certain large investors, and now they are going public back to back. Lyft, by comparison, explicitly says it is not interested in these supplementary business lines. “We are solely focused on consumer transportation,” Lyft cofounder John Zimmer said in a video pitch to investors last month ahead of its IPO. “Not food. Not trucking.” Uber and Lyft are at the forefront of shaping the future of transportation, …

New Species Of Early Human Discovered In The Philippines

The human family just got larger. Bones found in a cave in Northern Luzon in the Philippines have turned out to belong to a member of our own genus, but not our species, nor any species we have seen before. Scientists studying the bones have called their owners Homo luzonensis. In 2007 a single thigh bone was found in Callao Cave, Luzon, and confirmed to be human (that is, more closely related to us than to any other living great apes) and at least 67,000 years old. The presence of a close relative in the Philippines was surprising, because even at the height of the last Ice Age, the islands were cut off from mainland Asia, limiting the mammals that …

Noisy Quantum Computers Could Be Good for Chemistry Problems

Scientists and researchers have long extolled the extraordinary potential capabilities of universal quantum computers, like simulating physical and natural processes or breaking cryptographic codes in practical time frames. Yet important developments in the technology—the ability to fabricate the necessary number of high-quality qubits (the basic units of quantum information) and gates (elementary operations between qubits)—is most likely still decades away. However, there is a class of quantum devices—ones that currently exist—that could address otherwise intractable problems much sooner than that. These near-term quantum devices, coined Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum (NISQ) by Caltech professor John Preskill, are single-purpose, highly imperfect, and modestly sized. As the name implies, NISQ devices are “noisy,” meaning that the results of calculations have errors, which in some …

In Congressional Hearing on Hate, the Haters Got Their Way

Tuesday's House Judiciary Committee hearing on the rise of hate crimes and white nationalism devolved into a four-hour squabble over who’s most hated, and who’s doing the hating, in America. The members of the committee and some of the eight witnesses who sat before them battled over whether anti-semitism or anti-black hate is most deserving of their attention, and whether it’s white supremacists or Muslims or Democrats or the President who harbor the most hate. Meanwhile, in cyberspace, the comment section on the YouTube livestream of the hearing filled up with so much filth that YouTube had to shut it down. Candace Owens, a conservative commentator with the group Turning Points USA, told the House Judiciary Committee that the real …
