gates turns attention toward poverty, growing inequity in us

Bill and Melinda Gates, as the world’s top philanthropists, are rethinking their work in America as they confront what they consider their unsatisfactory track record on schools, the country’s growing inequity and a president they disagree with more than any other.In an interview, the couple said they’re concerned about President Donald Trump’s “America first” worldview. They’ve made known their differences with the president and his party on issues including foreign aid, taxes and protections for immigrant youth in the country illegally.And they said they’re now digging into the layers of U.S. poverty that they haven’t been deeply involved with at the national level, including employment, race, housing, mental health, incarceration and substance abuse.

trump aims for moon, pulls back on space station, telescopes

The Trump administration wants NASA out of the International Space Station by 2025, and private businesses running the place instead.Under President Donald Trump’s 2019 proposed budget released this week, U.S. government funding for the space station would end by 2025. The government would set aside $150 million to encourage commercial development and use future savings to aim for the moon.Many space experts and legislators are expressing concern. Sen. Bill Nelson, a Florida Democrat who rocketed into orbit in 1986, said “turning off the lights and walking away from our sole outpost in space” makes no sense.Retired NASA historian and Smithsonian curator Roger Launius notes that any such move will affect all the other countries involved in the space station; Russia is a major player, as is Europe, Japan and…

4 robots that aim to teach your kids to code

You’ve seen apps and toys that promise to teach your child to code. Now enter the robots.At the CES electronics show in January, coding robots came out in force. One convention hall area was packed with everything from chip-embedded, alphabet-like coding blocks to turtle-like tanks that draw on command.Of course, no one can really say how well these coding bots teach kids, or even whether learning to code is the essential life skill that so many in the tech industry claim. After all, by the time today’s elementary-school kids are entering the workforce, computers may well be programming themselves.But experts like Jeff Gray, a computer science professor at the University of Alabama and an adviser to the nonprofit coding education group Code.org, say kids can derive other benefits from…

apple ceo leaves investors dangling on future dividend hike

Apple’s next big thing will likely be a large dividend increase financed by a tax cut on its overseas profits, but the famously secretive company isn’t giving any clues about how big it might be.CEO Tim Cook had an opportunity to address the issue Tuesday at Apple’s annual meeting, when a shareholder asked if the iPhone maker might double its current quarterly dividend of 63 cents per share.Not surprisingly, Cook dodged the question, rising from his seat because he said it suddenly felt “a little hot.” He all but guaranteed that Apple’s board will raise the dividend in April, as it has done each year since the company reinstated the shareholder payments in 2012. But didn’t giving any other specifics.Apple’s annual dividend increases have ranged from 8 to 15…

uk unveils new technology to fight extremist content online

The British government is unveiling new technology designed to remove extremist material from social media, amid mounting pressure on companies like Facebook and Twitter to do more to remove such content from their platforms.The software, developed by ASI Data Science with funding from the government, was announced by Home Secretary Amber Rudd ahead of meetings with technology executives and U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen this week in Silicon Valley. The program will be shared with smaller companies that don’t have the resources to develop such technology, the agency said.“I hope this new technology the Home Office has helped develop can support others to go further and faster,” Rudd said before the meetings.

senators call for train collision prevention technology

U.S. Sens. Jack Reed and Susan Collins are urging Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao to ensure that technology designed to prevent train crashes is in place on the nation’s rails.The Rhode Island Democrat and Maine Republican pointed to a series of recent deadly accident to call for the swift implementation of positive train control.The technology uses sensors and GPS to prevent trains from colliding or derailing.Congress mandated the use of positive train control in 2008, but its implementation has been delayed. Rail companies have until the end of this year to put it in place.The two wrote in a letter that with the deadline approaching it’s imperative the Federal Railroad Administration use resources provided by Congress to hire needed staff and contractors to make the upgrade. ■…
