    15-year-old gets a heart and lung transplant in St. Louis

    At the St. Louis Science Center, visitors often marvel at the exhibits. But when it comes to the wonders of science, those exhibits have nothing on a visiting teenager. Last fall, 15-year-old Spencer Kolman nearly died. "Frankly, when I saw him he was in extreme distress," said Dr. Pirooz Eghtesady, the Chief of Cardio-Thoracic surgery at St. Louis Children's hospital. It all started when he was just a toddler. As Spencer was learning his first words, his parents were learning the...

    Are Artificial Intelligence Companies Obliged To Retrain Technologically Displaced Workers?

    Artificial intelligence, strong and weak, comes with a lot of moral implications. Weak AI (what we have now, Siri, Alexa, Waze, sophisticated IVR systems, etc…) is going to take jobs away from workers. It has been for years, since the very first attempts. If a programmer can predict it, and a computer can do it, eventually companies will stop paying people to do that job.

    Handful of “highly toxic” Wikipedia editors cause 9% of abuse on the site

    We've all heard anecdotes about trolling on Wikipedia and other social platforms, but rarely has anyone been able to quantify levels and origins of online abuse. That's about to change. Researchers with Alphabet tech incubator Jigsaw worked with Wikimedia Foundation to analyze 100,000 comments left on English-language Wikipedia.

    Net neutrality assault can be stopped by citizens, Senate Democrats say

    US Senate Democrats today vowed that they won't let net neutrality rules be eliminated without a fight, and they urged citizens to make their voices heard by lawmakers and Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai. "Remember that two years ago, nearly 4 million Americans offered comments on the Open Internet Order," Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) said at a press conference this morning (video). "That’s by far, by a factor of at least two, more than any comments on any ...

    'I know they are going to die.' This foster father takes in only terminally ill children (Warning: Autoplay AD)

    The children were going to die. Mohamed Bzeek knew that. But in his more than two decades as a foster father, he took them in anyway — the sickest of the sick in Los Angeles County’s sprawling foster care system. He has buried about 10 children. Some died in his arms. Now, Bzeek spends long days and sleepless nights caring for a bedridden 6-year-old foster girl with a rare brain defect. She’s blind and deaf. She has daily seizures. Her arms and legs are paralyzed.

    Killing the Environmental Protection Agency

    The Cuyahoga River flows into Lake Erie. The river has caught on fire 13 times since 1868; the last time it was ablaze was in June, 1969. A river caught on fire. Just about anyone would concede that seems pretty abnormal. During the 1960s Lake Erie was considered, for all intents and purposes, dead. The river fire was covered in Time magazine, where the article described a river so saturated with sewage and industrial waste that it “oozes rather than flows.”

    In unusual vote that began before dawn, Congress kills rule forcing payment disclosures by companies

    Congress has passed legislation ending an Obama-era regulation that's required oil and gas companies to disclose payments to the U.S. or foreign governments for commercial development. The Senate gave final congressional approval to the measure Friday 52-47 in an unusual vote that began before dawn. President Donald Trump is expected to sign the bill. It represents an initial Republican swipe at the 2010 Dodd-Frank law curbing Wall Street that President Barack Obama and Democrats enacted fo...

    Canada to Mexico on NAFTA: you might be on your own

    Canada will focus on preserving its U.S. trade ties during talks to renegotiate NAFTA and may not be able to help Mexico avoid being targeted by the Trump administration, Canadian government sources say. "We love our Mexican friends. But our national interests come first and the friendship comes second," a source said on the sidelines of a cabinet retreat in Calgary, Alberta. "The two are not mutually exclusive," the source added.

    The Rise, Fall, and Lonely Death of Benny Hill

    Diplomat says China would assume world leadership if needed

    China does not want world leadership but could be forced to assume that role if others step back from that position, a senior Chinese diplomat said on Monday, after U.S. President Donald Trump pledged to put "America first" in his first speech. Zhang Jun, director general of the Chinese Foreign Ministry's international economics department, made the comments during a briefing with foreign journalists to discuss President Xi Jinping's visit to Switzerland last week.

    Inside 'The Beast,' Donald Trump’s New Presidential Car

    Donald Trump, who became the United States’ 45th president, has a new car. Nicknamed “the beast,” the 2017 Cadillac will replace around 12 vehicles that have been in service since 2009 at a cost of around $1.5 million. It is expected to include high-tech communications equipment and adjustable suspension, but in many ways, it will retain the tried-and-tested designs of previous models.
