Tropical Storm Isaias batters U.S. Northeast with rare tornadoes

Tropical Storm Isaias raced up the Atlantic seaboard on Tuesday, generating powerful winds that put New York City and other parts of the U.S. Northeast under a rare tornado warning, after a twister killed at least two people in North Carolina. The fast-moving storm knocked out power for 1.4 million customers from North Carolina to New York and threatened flash flooding, as stunned northeasterners took cellphone video of tornadoes, which are more commonly seen in the South or Midwest.

Why Democratic voters might stay home on Election Day

Alarm is growing in Democratic circles that the massively unpopular President Trump might connive to keep himself in office past January even if he is voted out. Former Vice President Joe Biden, the party's presumptive nominee, has warned repeatedly that Trump will steal the election. Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.) on Sunday said he believes the president "plans to install himself in some kind of emergency way to continue to hold onto office." Publications including The Atlantic and The Washing...

"Why Can’t We Just Have Class Outside? It might be the answer to America’s school-reopening problem."

Writes Olga Khazan in The Atlantic.A small group of activists across the country are pushing for schools to consider teaching children in person, but outdoors in a park or even a parking lot....It might sound crazy, but kids learn outside all the time, and did so even before the pandemic. About 250 “forest schools” exist in the U.S., in which younger kids spend much of their time in nature... In the early 1900s, during a tuberculosis outbreak in Rhode Island, kids attended a school with the wind...

Will China's AI Surveillance State Go Global?

China already has hundreds of millions of surveillance cameras in place, reports the Atlantic's deputy editor, and "because a new regulation requires telecom firms to scan the face of anyone who signs up for cellphone services, phones' data can now be attached to a specific person's face." But the article also warns that when it comes to AI-powered surveillance, China "could also export it beyond the country's borders, entrenching the power of a whole generation of autocrats" and "shift the ba...
