Supreme Court allows ‘public charge’ changes L.A. leaders fought against

A divided U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Trump administration and against the wishes of Los Angeles city leaders on Monday, Jan. 27, allowing federal officials to make changes to rules that could make it more difficult for undocumented immigrants to gain citizenship status if they use — or if the government determines they are likely to use — public benefits or housing. The rule changes — which alter the definition of a “public charge” — were proposed in 2018 and were planned to be eff...

Newsom admits he stretched housing truth about a 3.5 million-unit shortfall

Gov. Gavin Newsom has recanted his repeated and insistent suggestion that the state’s housing challenges require 3.5 million homes to be swiftly built. He recently described this target — based on a flawed and outdated consultant’s study — as a “stretch goal,” whatever that means. Plus, he says he’s tossed that math and is having new construction goals formulated. Sadly, the governor’s very public stretching of the housing-shortage truth only further hardens the lines drawn between the warring f...

Why I won't buy an Ipad: ten years later

Ten years ago, Apple released the Ipad. I was in a hotel room in Seattle, jetlagged and awake at 4AM while my wife and daughter slept. I had been thinking about Apple's impending Ipad release and what a reversal it meant for everything I loved about tech: taking away your right to decide whose code you'd run -- even your right to change the battery! I wrote about my feelings and many people read it. It even rated a mention in Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs. A decade later, th...

The privacy-invading, junk science "home DNA test" industry is cratering

Home genetics tests purport to tell you what percentage of your ancestry comes from which places, an incoherent, unscientific fraud that perpetuates ridiculous eugenic myths. But that's not all: when you take one of these tests, you nonconsensually opt your family into perpetual, global genetic surveillance (and it's not like they can opt out afterwards by changing their DNA). Lucky for the human race, these companies have run out of suckers. 23andme is laying off 100 people, and business h...
