Trump And Russia Worked Towards The Same Goal In 2016

In the heady days of late July 2016, Donald Trump was ready for Russian help. That much is clear from the Mueller report, which recounts how Trump repeatedly told Michael Flynn to find Hillary Clinton’s deleted emails after publicly asking Russia to “find” them. That episode fits a broader pattern.  Throughout the 2016 campaign, Trump underlings and hangers-on — both in Russia and the United States — tried to leverage Trump’s chaotic presidential campaign for their mutual advantage. As ...

Go to any Silicon Valley party, and chance are pretty good you'll hear someone talking about "Sapiens," a book about the past and future of humanity by Yuval Noah Harari.  Harari's "Sapiens" was first released in English in 2014, and not long after found itself on recommended reading lists of industry giants like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg.

Scientists have yet to find a cure for Alzheimer's, a disease whose symptoms include memory loss, impaired judgment, and difficulty speaking. About 14 million Americans are expected to be living with Alzheimer's by 2050. Doctors rely mostly on physical symptoms to diagnose the disease, though they can also use  spinal taps and brain scans to detect it. But Bill Gates envisions a future in which people can predict Alzheimer's before symptoms manifest using a voice app on their phones.  The roa...
