DA George Gascón pushes for bill to eliminate juvenile ‘strikes’ in adult sentencing

LOS ANGELES — District Attorney George Gascon outlined plans Friday to reorganize his office’s gang unit and co-locate prosecutors in police stations in hopes of creating closer community ties. Gascon’s remarks came during a news conference he co-hosted to promote Assembly Bill 1127, which would eliminate the use of juvenile offenses to impose tougher sentences on adults. “Overcriminalization of young people leads to higher levels of recividism,” the DA told reporters, citing research showing th...

Sorry, the EmDrive doesn’t work

The proposed EmDrive captured the public's imagination with the promise of super-fast space travel that broke the laws of physics. Some researchers have detected thrusts from the EmDrive that seemed to prove its validity as a technology. A new, authoritative study says, no, those results were just "false positives." When Roger Shawyer's EmDrive was first proposed in 2001, it seemed too good to be true. The proposed electromagnetic drive ("Em" for short) needed no fuel, and therefore was so ...

Thandiwe Newton Reclaims Original Spelling of Her Name: “I’m Taking Back What’s Mine”

For over 30 years, Thandiwe Newton has been credited as Thandie Newton — something that came not out of a decision to brand herself as more marketable to Hollywood, but from a misspelling. The “w” was “carelessly missed out from her first credit,” British Vogue reveals in an in-depth profile with the Westworld star, who announced that she is now reclaiming the original spelling of her name. “That’s my name. It’s always been my name. I’m taking back what’s mine,” Newton said in a British Vogu...

String Theorist Michio Kaku: 'Reaching Out To Aliens is a Terrible Idea'

An excerpt from a wide-ranging interview of String theorist Michio Kaku in which he talks about Newton finding inspiration amid the great plague, how the multiverse can unite religions, and why a 'theory of everything' is within our grasp: The Guardian: You believe that within a century we will make contact with an alien civilisation.

The new Mercedes-AMG C 63 is to come with only four cylinders, but for 550 hp

Mercedes-AMG is being forced by strict emissions standards to consistently downsize. The loss of displacement and cylinders is to be more than compensated for by additional electric power. It has already been rumored since 2019 that the C 63 will lose the eight-cylinder engine beloved by fans. The rumor mill was fueled by then AMG boss Tobias Moers. Now, concrete details about the hybrid powertrain have been published. With a system output of 550 hp, the new C 63 should blow away its competitor...

A brief window of opportunity opened last weekend that prompted me to get out and trout fish again. I was the first time I'd be fishing for trout since 2020's Labor Day weekend, so excitement was abound. The plan was to head up to north Georgia on Friday night, then get pretty much a full day of fishing in on Saturday.Being that the local delayed harvest water had just been stocked the day prior, the "crowds" decided to descend on those well-known waterways. On the other hand, I had the smaller,...
