how the liberal leanings of google, facebook shape the political landscape

Robert Epstein tried a simple experiment in the run-up to the presidential election: running searches on Google and Yahoo for political topics.The results were stunning. Google searches returned twice as many pro-Hillary Clinton news articles as Yahoo searches.Perhaps even more stunning was that men and blue-state residents saw more than double the number of pro-Clinton articles than women and people living in red states, Mr. Epstein, of the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology, and Robert E. Robertson, a professor at Northeastern University, argued in a report this year.Mr. Epstein said he is still studying what caused the bias but worries that Google’s search algorithm — a form of artificial intelligence that chooses what results a searcher is looking for — ranked pro-Clinton articles ahead of positive articles…

new york advances drone industry with testing corridor

Envisioning a day when millions of drones will buzz around delivering packages, watching crops or inspecting pipelines, a coalition is creating an airspace corridor in upstate New York where traffic management systems will be developed and unmanned aircraft can undergo safety and performance testing.The unmanned aircraft traffic management corridor, jump-started by a $30 million state investment, will extend 50 miles (80 kilometers) west over mostly rural farmland from Griffiss International Airport, a former Air Force base in Rome that is already home to NASA-affiliated drone testing. (Image: Mary Altaffer) It will be equipped with radar and ground-based sensors to enable what Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo boasted would be “the most advanced drone testing in the country.”The first segment of the corridor was launched last month by the Northeast UAS…

gao: climate change already costing us billions in losses

A non-partisan federal watchdog says climate change is already costing U.S. taxpayers billions of dollars each year, with those costs expected to rise as devastating storms, floods, wildfires and droughts become more frequent in the coming decades.A Government Accountability Office report released this week said the federal government has spent more than $350 billion over the last decade on disaster assistance programs and losses from flood and crop insurance. That tally does not include the massive toll from this year’s wildfires and three major hurricanes, expected to be among the most costly in the nation’s history.The Senate on Monday gave preliminary approval to a $36.5 billion hurricane relief package that would provide Puerto Rico with a much-needed infusion of cash and keep the federal flood insurance program from running…

the evolution of game sports

When Apple publicly refashioned the Apple Watch as a health and fitness-centric wearable starting with last year’s Series 2 model, it made the device a much more powerful draw for athletes. Of course, many Apple Watch features can be used to impressive effect by anyone who wants to generally improve their physical wellbeing. However, if you look much more closely at the Apple Watch, the benefits for athletes can become especially apparent. (Image: Sarah Tew/CNET) A MAJOR TRANSFORMATION FOR THE APPLE WATCH It was only in September that Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 3 - and, soon after unpacking one that has just been purchased, you could be pleasantly surprised by how much you can do with it.
