Memorial Day: The only Coast Guard sailor to receive the Medal of Honor

Dauntless devotion In the 228-year history of the U.S. Coast Guard, only one sailor received the Medal of Honor. Today we remember that 22-year-old who gave his life for his country. Today’s Coast Guard routinely rescues people, but in 1942 its role of transporting Marines in heavy gunfire was instrumental in the World War II effort. The spirit and sacrifice of one Coast Guard signalman in charge of landing craft was so appreciated by the Marine Corps that for a while, Marines who greeted Coas...

Invites are out for Apple’s June 3 WWDC keynote — there will be unicorns

Apple’s WWDC keynote invites just went out, with only a couple of weeks to spare. The company’s graphic designers appear to be having some fun this time out, with a mind-blown rainbow unicorn, losing the Apple, Swift and App Store icons among others. iOS 13, watchOS 6 and macOS 10.15 are no doubt on the books for this year’s event. I’d anticipate a lot more from the Apple TV side of things as well, in the wake of the big event earlier in the year. Last year’s big show was completely devoid of...
