    Erdogan Declares Referendum Victory as Opposition Cries Foul

    Turkey voted to hand Recep Tayyip Erdogan sweeping authority in the most radical overhaul since the republic was founded 93 years ago on the expectation he’ll safeguard security amid regional wars and kickstart the economy. The referendum won approval of 51.3 percent to 48.7 percent of Turks, according to the state-run Anadolu news agency, as opposition parties alleged fraud and the European Union branded it as unfair. Once implemented, Erdogan will have authority to appoint ministers and top ...

    These Concrete Relics in Arizona Helped Satellites Spy on the Soviets

    Venture into the Sonoran Desert about an hour south of Phoenix and you’ll eventually stumble upon a concrete cross. More than 100 dot the terrain, each of them 60 feet across and spaced precisely one mile apart. The government used them to calibrate the world’s first spy satellites as they peered down on Russia and China while photographing more than 750 million square miles of the planet.

    In a sign of anger, Kremlin says Putin won't meet with Tillerson in Moscow on Wednesday

    The Kremlin said on Monday that U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will not meet President Vladimir Putin when he visits Moscow on Wednesday, a move that could point to tensions over a U.S. missile attack on a Syrian air base last week. John Kerry, Tillerson's predecessor, often met Putin as well as the Russian foreign minister when he visited Moscow, and Putin granted several audiences to the Texan when he ran oil major Exxon Mobil before taking his current job.

    Oregon state lawmakers who fear heightened marijuana enforcement by federal agents overwhelmingly approved Monday a proposal to protect pot users from having their identities or cannabis-buying habits from being divulged by the shops that make buying pre-rolled joints and "magic" brownies as easy as grabbing a bottle of whiskey from the liquor store.

    Artificial Intelligence Tech Will Arrive in Three Waves

    I’ve done a lot of writing and research recently about the bright future of AI: that it’ll be able to analyze human emotions, understand social nuances, conduct medical treatments and diagnoses that overshadow the best human physicians, and in general make many human workers redundant and unnecessary. I still stand behind all of these forecasts, but they are meant for the long term – twenty or thirty years into the future.

    Meeting Andrzej Sapkowski, the writer who created The Witcher

    Andrzej Sapkowski has something of a reputation. To start with, he's a big deal. He invented Geralt, witchers, Triss, Ciri, the whole thing - it all came out of his head. He has won awards and his work is revered, especially in Poland. More than once I've heard him described as the Polish Tolkien. But I've also heard he can be difficult - and I'm on my way to meet him. "Good luck Robert. He is not the most pleasant person in the world…" one Twitter follower warns....

    Here are 10 outspoken critics of Putin who died violently or in mysterious ways

    Not everyone who has a quarrel with Russian President Vladimir Putin dies in violent or suspicious circumstances—far from it. But enough loud critics of Putin’s policies have been murdered that Thursday’s daylight shooting of a Russian who sought asylum in Ukraine has led to speculation of Kremlin involvement. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko called the shooting in Kiev of Denis Voronenkov, a former Russian Communist Party member who began sharply criticizing Putin after fleeing Russia...

    Sources claim Donald and Melania Trump 'never spend the night together — ever'

    In addition to the frosty body language between the first couple and the fact that the first lady would rather spend millions of taxpayer dollars than live in the same city as her husband, the report that Donald and Melania Trump don’t even share a bed when they’re together points to the fact that these two clearly hate each other. Or perhaps Melania just hates her husband. I mean, in fairness, would you want to sleep next to a tangerine-hued fascist and get spray tan all over your sheets? P...

    San Francisco talks robot tax

    Following the recent advice of Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Supervisor Jane Kim called for a hearing Tuesday on imposing a tax on robots and automation. “We are finding that robots have begun to destroy millions of American jobs. The long predicted era of robots and automation replacing human workers has arrived,” Kim said. “We need to ensure that the massive new wealth created by automation is redirected to investing in education and training displaced workers for the jobs of the future.”
