    TECH TAKEOVER A CREEPY artificial intelligence left scientists puzzled after discovering physics that even professionals still don't understand. Physics is one of the more rigid disciplines in science with complex equations and exact measurements for secrets to be revealed.  4A creepy AI has baffled scientists after it discovered hidden physics that even human experts still don't understandCredit: Getty 4Hod Lipson and his team developed an algorithm capable of studying physical phenomena by 'watching' videosCredit: Boyuan Chen Professor of engineering at Columbia University Hod Lipson said it is a task that has no well-laid path to follow.  “It's an art, there is no systematic way,” he told Motherboard.  “It's almost like, how do you discover the alphabet? It just happens organically.” At his Creative Machines Lab, Lipson and his colleagues aim to better understand how this process of discovery happens and how it can be improved using machine learning.  The team developed an algorithm capable of studying physical phenomena by “watching” videos featuring the flicker or a flame or the swing of a double pendulum.  READ MORE TECHSTARRY-EYED Nasa's James Webb...

    CYBER experts are warning about a new scam that could let a criminal steal from you while you watch Hackers are partaking in a new financial scheme where they pose as investment advisers to lure victims. 1Cyber experts are warning about a new scam that could let a criminal steal from you while you watch These threat actors utilize a screen sharing tactic via remote access software to gain their victim's bank login credentials. Remote access software is a tool most often used by IT support to troubleshoot problems without physically being in the room. Typically, remote access gives users full control over apps, files, emails, documents, and history. Though in some instances, fraudsters have also been getting victims to expand permission via programs like LogMeIn, TeamViewer, or GoToAssist, which can give them access to online bank accounts.

    Experts are weighing in after Donald Trump, the twice-impeached one term former president, declared in a statement released Thursday morning he has an "Envoy Ambassador" who traveled to the Kosovo-Serbia border to "highlight … the agreements my administration brokered." That "ambassador" is Richard Grenell (photo), Trump's former and highly-controversial ambassador to Germany who later became his Acting Director of National Intelligence, some say in violation of the law. One month before losing the 2020 election Trump named Grenell "Special Presidential Envoy for Serbia and Kosovo Peace Negotiations." Journalist David Freedlander posted Trump's statement and added: "The former president has an envoy ambassador and is conducting foreign policy."

    Experts have revealed how you can help your partner propose after Kristen Stewart revealed she 'very distinctly' carved out how she wanted her girlfriend to pop-the-question.  The LA-born actress, 31,  who was rocketed to worldwide fame playing Bella Swan in the Twilight Saga, revealed earlier this week that she is engaged after saying yes to her girlfriend Dylan Meyer's proposal. Speaking on Howard Stern on Tuesday, she said: 'I wanted to be proposed to, so I think I very distinctly carved out what I wanted and she nailed it. We're marrying, it's happening.' Relationship expert Martina Mercer told FEMAIL that helping to orchestrate the proposal is all about communicating clearly with your partner. She explained: 'If you’ve both talked about marriage, you know you want to get married, there’s no reason why the two of you can’t have input into the proposal too.

    Clashes between President Biden's White House and the administration's own experts over COVID-19 booster shots are threatening to undermine a key Biden campaign promise: that he would always "follow the science."  The president promised in July 2020 that he would "[l]isten to the experts and follow the science."  COVID-19 BOOSTER SHOTS UNNECESSARY FOR MOST, SAY FDA ADVISORS REPORTEDLY RESIGNING OVER ISSUE "Let’s set the partisanship aside. Let’s end the politics. Let’s follow the science," he wrote in a November 2020 tweet.  But internal administration battles call into question whether the president is following the science or leading it.  Two senior officials at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are reportedly leaving over the Biden administration's efforts to promote and urge booster shots before their own scientists have signed off on them.  Additionally, the White House and the FDA are also reportedly clashing with officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Biden and the FDA are reportedly accusing the CDC of withholding crucial data that would help shape the administration’s plan to push COVID-19 booster shots, according to...
    by Aysha Khan This story was originally published at Prism. Content note: This article contains descriptions of suicide and violence. If you or someone you know are struggling with suicidal thoughts, help is available 24/7 through the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. Muslim youth can also call Naseeha’s confidential helpline at +1 (866) 627-3342 for support. Muslim American adults are twice as likely to report a history of attempted suicide than Americans belonging to other religious traditions or no religion, according to a new study. It’s a rate even higher than experts feared, one that includes both local tragedies that families may be reluctant to report and high-profile cases, like the shocking murder-suicide in Allen, Texas, that left an entire family dead in April and sent shockwaves through Muslim communities around the country. The study’s authors told Prism that although they expected to encounter results that would corroborate what they had been seeing in a clinical setting, they were taken aback by the magnitude of their findings. “The rate that people answered that they had had a suicide attempt in their lifetime was...
    Candidate Joe Biden promised his term, following four years of Donald Trump's daily chaos, would be boring. But, his lack of pizzazz and declarations that his own speeches are dull risks alienating some voters. Biden's confessed inability to hold the public's attention or stoke its imagination may be a relief to voters exhausted by Trump's reality television-style tenure. Yet, experts say it could blunt the power of the bully pulpit as he tries to ramp up support for his $1.8 trillion "human" infrastructure proposal. BIDEN AND DEMOCRATS CAN'T HIDE ELECTORAL JITTERS OVER RISING CRIME RATES There are no downsides to Biden's low-key, no-frills attitude toward the presidency, according to Eric Schultz, a top White House spokesman for former President Barack Obama. "Since January 20, 2017, the American people have been yearning for government to function again, and that’s exactly what Joe Biden delivered as president," he told the Washington Examiner. Indeed, Obama stumped for his vice president for the first time in person when he pitched Biden being a bore as a political asset last fall. "With Joe and Kamala...
    Researchers have identified how one species of fire ants is able to survive dangerous floods, essentially creating a living 'raft' using their own bodies. The new findings, published in The Royal Society of Publishing, notes that the Solenopsis invicta ants - which are known for the painful sting and red and black color - link together and create a conveyor belt-like structure that constantly changes shape. The process, known as 'treadmilling' according to the study's authors, has allowed them to reach dry land even though it may be some distance away.  Scroll down for videos  The experts were able to capture the behavior by taking 3,000 to 10,000 worker ants and putting them in a container of water with a rod in the center. They found that after some instability, the ants were able to form the structure and its wild, ever-changing arms, by having one group of ants form the main bridge that also circulated to the top from the bottom.   The other group marched above the raft to help support the ants below.  'Ant rafts comprise a floating,...
    Prince Charles 'wasn't parented' by the Queen and Prince Philip, and instead had a 'Victorian style upbringing with nannies', a royal expert has claimed. Speaking to Channel 5's Charles & Harry: Father & Son Divided, which airs on Sunday at 9pm, royal experts also revealed that Charles is a 'workaholic' and wouldn't take time off to spend days with William and Harry as children. 'Charles didn't receive any parenting,' explained royal author Tom Quinn. 'His parents were away when he was very young, he was left with nannies in that very Victorian way.  'Although Charles tried to be a more modern parent he didn't have the tools because he didn't grow up with them. Diana actually joined in their games, while Charles would have said "off you go". He wouldn't have joined in. He's too stiff, too old-fashioned'. The documentary airs as Harry once again hit out at The Firm in an explosive interview yesterday, saying Prince Charles 'suffered' because of his upbringing by the Queen and Prince Philip, and that the Prince of Wales had then 'treated me the way he...
    (CNN)Derek Chauvin's defense team is expected to call two more expert witnesses on their second day of testimony in an attempt to raise doubt in the prosecution's case and further highlight George Floyd's drug use.On Tuesday, the defense's first day to call witnesses, their own use-of-force expert said the former Minneapolis Police officer was justified in kneeling on George Floyd for over nine minutes and did not use deadly force."I felt that Derek Chauvin was justified and was acting with objective reasonableness, following Minneapolis Police Department policy and current standards of law enforcement in his interactions with Mr. Floyd," said Barry Brodd, a former police officer.The crux of his argument was that he did not consider putting a handcuffed Floyd in the "prone control" position on the street to be a use of force. He even suggested that it was safer for the subject because if they get up and fall they might hurt their face.On cross-examination, Brodd explained that he doesn't consider the prone control position to be a use of force because it does not cause pain.

    On the same day the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) finally released its report into the origins of coronavirus and posited the theory China may not be responsible, the organization’s chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus revived a claim it could have leaked from a lab in Wuhan as all options remain open. A study by W.H.O. and Chinese experts released Tuesday had judged the Wuhan lab-leak hypothesis highly unlikely, saying the virus behind Covid-19 had probably jumped from bats to humans via an intermediary animal, as Breitbart News reported. Beijing applauded the report, seeing it as confirmation of its handling of the investigation following allegations it had tried to delay and then restrict it. The report also initially appeared to back China’s firm rejection of theories the pandemic may have been triggered by a leak from a virology lab in Wuhan, the central Chinese city where the virus first emerged. It is “extremely unlikely” the coronavirus leaked from a lab in Wuhan, China, and is more likely to have jumped to humans from an animal, W.H.O. investigators said Tuesday. https://t.co/wush1l4IjD — Breitbart News (@BreitbartNews)...

    ALBANY — Gov. Andrew Cuomo wants his own team of in-house experts to review a federally approved COVID-19 vaccine before distributing the drug to millions of New Yorkers, arguing Monday he doesn’t think the FDA and CDC’s recommendations are “safe.” “You’re going to say to the American people: now here’s a vaccine, it was new, it was done quickly but trust this federal administration and their health administration that it’s safe and we’re not 100 percent sure of the consequences?” said Cuomo during a “Good Morning America” interview to promote his new book “American Crisis.” “I think it’s going to be a very skeptical American public about taking the vaccine and they should be. We’re going to put together our own group of doctors and medical experts to review the vaccine and the efficacy and the protocol and if they say it’s safe then I’ll go to the people of New York and I’ll say it’s safe with that credibility,” he added. “You’re going to need someone other than this FDA and this CDC saying it’s safe.” Cuomo released a...

    This week alone President Donald Trump has contradicted public statements from the heads of the CDC and FBI working for him, and ABC News’ Jon Karl asked him about that Friday. To briefly recap: Trump publicly pushed back after CDC director Robert Redfield testified a vaccine would be generally available to the public by mid-to-late 2021, and subsequently went after FBI director Chris Wray for comments about Antifa and Russian interference during his testimony this week. …And I look at them as a bunch of well funded ANARCHISTS & THUGS who are protected because the Comey/Mueller inspired FBI is simply unable, or unwilling, to find their funding source, and allows them to get away with “murder”.

    Suzanne Morphew's brother is organizing his own search for the Colorado mom who's been missing since Mother's Day as he says he suspects foul play in her disappearance.  Andrew Moorman held a vigil for his sister in her hometown of Alexandria, Indiana, over the weekend, where he announced his plan to recruit more than 1,000 volunteers for a five-day search.  'I've got to find my little sister, and I have to bring closure to my family,' Moorman said, according to the Herald Bulletin. 'We were quiet for a while because the investigators asked that of us, but it's time now to rally the troops and go west and find her.'   Moorman enlisted the help of Profiling Evil, a team of criminal behavior and intelligence experts who have consulted on high-profile homicide and kidnapping investigations, in setting up his independent search.  Suzanne, 49, was reported missing on May 10 after she went out for a bike ride near her home in Salida, Colorado, and never returned.    Her brother has expressed frustration with the investigation that has failed to find his sister...
    "Right now, I think it's under control," Trump said during an interview with Axios. He added, "We have done a great job." But the surge in infections, hospitalizations, and deaths tells a different story. And it suggests that Trump is increasingly out of step with the federal government's own medical and public health experts. The U.S. death toll, which stands at more than 156,000, is expected to accelerate. The latest composite forecast from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention projects an average of nearly 1,000 deaths per day through Aug. 22. Dr. Deborah Birx, White House coronavirus task force coordinator, warned this week that the virus has become "extraordinarily widespread." Trump didn't like that. He dismissed her comment as "pathetic" and charged she was capitulating to criticism from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who had earlier criticized Birx. Adm. Brett Giroir, the assistant secretary of Health and Human Services, who has avoided contradicting Trump throughout the crisis, said on Sunday it was time to "move on" from the debate over hydroxychloroquine, a drug Trump continues to promote as a...
    President Donald Trump grew testy as he doubled down on his support for hydroxychloroquine to combat the coronavirus despite experts on his own task force saying otherwise. Trump complained on Monday that the medicine, originally designed to treat malaria, became 'politically' toxic 'because I supported it.' The president, who took a two-week course of the medication in May, has been a steady defender of it even as Dr. Antony Fauci, Dr. Deborah Birx, and administration 'testing czar' Brett Giroir have said hydroxy is not effective. 'Hydroxy has tremendous support, but politically it is toxic, because I supported it. If I had said 'Do not use hydroxychloroquine under any circumstances,' they would have come out and said it's a great thing. Many doctors have come out strongly in favor of it, they want to break badly,' Trump told reporters at the White House. President Donald Trump doubled down on his support for hydroxychloroquine to combat the coronavirus and grew testy when pressed on the matter Dr. Antony Fauci, the director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has said hydroxy...
    Social distancing dividers for students are seen in a classroom, July 14, 2020.Lucy Nicholson | Reuters Parents everywhere are grappling with the question whether it's safe to send their children back to school. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently released guidelines emphasizing that students get back to the classroom for the sake of their own emotional well-being. But not every student, parent, or teacher is comfortable with that. Some school districts will likely continue with remote learning or some hybrid blend of in-person and remote. The situation is highly confusing and the guidelines seem to be shifting. So we asked twenty doctors, public health experts and epidemiologists with school-age children if they're sending them to school this fall. We got a wide range of responses, which were highly dependent on their location, personal risk tolerance, degree of support at home, the measures taken at the individual school, and the age of their children. Six of the medical experts felt confident about sending their kids back. Eight were in "wait and see" mode. And a final six were leaning strongly...
    Advocates protest the Trump administration's inhumane family separation policy in 2018. The Trump administration may be just hours away from resuming large-scale family separation when a federal judge’s deadline hits on Friday—and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials may still proceed with their criminal and inhumane plan in spite of medical experts hired by the administration loudly warning about the serious damage to kids and parents, BuzzFeed News reports. The experts now hope federal legislators can intervene. “We are writing to you, members of Congress responsible for overseeing DHS, because we have a professional obligation to raise our grave concerns about DHS’s reattempt to separate children from their families in response to a federal court order to release the children when it is within ICE discretion to release the families intact,” they wrote according to the report. BuzzFeed News obtained the letter that the three experts hired by the DHS Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties sent to federal legislators. Their jobs are to inspect “the care of those in government custody,” the report said, yet the Trump administration is so far appearing ready to ignore them...
    Health experts have stressed the importance of wearing a mask to limit the possibility of infecting others with COVID-19, but a range of new research now suggests they also protect the wearer, according to a report Monday. With many states implementing policies to make face coverings mandatory in both indoor and outdoor spaces, one doctor says that masks also reduce the risk of infection to the wearer by 65 percent. "We've learned more due to research and additional scientific evidence and now we know [that] not only wearing a mask prevents the person wearing the mask to transmit to others, but wearing the mask protects the person who's wearing it," said Dean Blumberg, chief of pediatric infectious diseases at UC Davis Children’s Hospital. MASSACHUSETTS SUSPECT PULLS GUN ON MASKLESS MAN OUTSIDE WALGREENS: COPS SAY "So the wearer of the mask, even the standard rectangular surgical masks ... will decrease the risk of infection by the person wearing the mask by about 65 percent."

    A jab against coronavirus should last for several years at least, said the British scientist whose own vaccine project is the global front-runner. Professor Sarah Gilbert told MPs she was optimistic that a vaccine would provide ‘a good duration of immunity’. She is the world-renowned expert leading an Oxford University team that is devising a vaccine, so her claim could help to dispel the fears over how long protection against Covid-19 might last. Concerns had been raised after those with other types of coronavirus – which are less dangerous and cause the common cold – were able, in tests, to be reinfected within a year.  A jab against coronavirus should last for several years at least, said the British scientist whose own vaccine project is the global front-runner (stock photo) But Professor Gilbert told the Commons science and technology committee there may be a better result from a vaccine than the natural immunity acquired when individuals simply recover from a virus. She said: ‘Vaccines have a different way of engaging with the immune system, and we follow people in...
    California recorded its largest ever single-day surge in coronavirus cases Monday with more than 8,000 new infections documented. Monday’s tally of infections broke California’s daily record for the third time in eight days. The recent troubling virus spike is said to have been caused by crowds gathering for Memorial Day celebrations on beaches and in bars all over the state last month. The state is now on course to double its number of coronavirus cases in June over those it recorded in May, according to analysis by the LA Times. Across the entirety of May, there were 61,666 cases reported in the state of California. By the close of Monday night, 114,119 cases had been reported in the first 28 days of June. In total, the state has now recorded 216,550 cases of COVID-19, with the death toll now fast-approaching 6,000. The virus has rapidly spread through communities in the state over the last few weeks as the economy reopened, with residents flocking back to bars, restaurants and other familiar haunts in search for a sense of normalcy after...
