In 1992, after failing to unseat the incumbent George H.W. Bush from the top of the GOP ticket, Pat Buchanan delivered one of the most memorable speeches in modern American history at the Republican National Convention in Houston. The "Culture War" is a masterpiece, rightly studied by rhetoricians, including those who find its contents loathsome. One of its most remarkable passages comes when, having recalled encounters on the campaign trail with factory workers and an unemployed legal secretary, he praises the native wisdom of the American working class, men and women outside the conservative movement who nevertheless embodied its principles:. My friends, these people are our people. … They come from the same schoolyards and the same playgr.

Each week, we spotlight a cool innovation recommended by some of the industry's top tech writers. This week's pick is AI for cameras. Sony unveiled the first image sensor with integrated AI to "make cameras smarter," said James Vincent at . Mobile devices already have image-sensor processors, which are how the pixels captured by a camera get compressed into a JPEG for rapid sharing. The next step is machine learning that would quickly identify objects and people in the images "like a human would.". ( Courtesy image ). Other sensor chips need to transfer an image to a separate computer for that type of analysis, but Sony has built AI right into the processor itself. It's not only safer, it's faster.

Most parents are horrified the first time they catch their kid out in a lie. We think that, generally, decent people — the type of people we want our children to become — don't lie. Just how worried should you be if your little one has started fibbing, and how can you encourage them to tell the truth? According to child and teen psychiatrist , MD, lying can actually be a sign of healthy development in young children. "Kids lie for many reasons, and much of it is normal," DeSilva says. "People are not born with the tools and know-how of interacting with others and getting their needs met. They must learn how to communicate those needs in appropriate ways, and they'll experiment with different communication styles and techniques until they fi.

Coronavirus has, once again, provided good cover for President Trump's ongoing attack on American democracy and his weakening of any limits on his power. Last Friday, Trump fired State Department Inspector General Steve Linick, l the president has pushed out since early April. In a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi, that he had let Linick go because he no longer had "the fullest confidence" in him. Yet the rapid purge of four independent government watchdogs in less than two months suggests that Trump has other, more nefarious, motivations. As Vox 's Zack Beauchamp wrote when the bloodbath began, Trump's removal of these four inspectors general represents nothing less than "a war on the very concept of oversight."
