AI is searching for unexploded Vietnam War bombs in Cambodia

Researchers are using AI to search satellite images for unexploded bombs dropped in Cambodia during the Vietnam War. The system uses object recognition algorithms that detect the unique features of bomb craters, including their shapes, colors, textures, and sizes. These algorithms then scan satellite images for signals of the craters. The Ohio State University team first used the system to find craters in a village in the province of Prey Veng, a heavily bombed area around 30 kilometers from the...

Rather, he increasingly appears to be chiseling away at it.The attorney general's handling of the results of the Russia inquiry came unde...

National Register of Historic Places Often Ignores Slavery’s Significance on American South

(BIRMINGHAM, Ala.) — Antebellum Southern plantations were built on the backs of enslaved people, and many of those plantations hold places of honor on the National Register of Historic Places — but don’t look for many mentions of slavery in the government’s official record of places with historic significance. The register’s written entries on the plantations tend to say almost nothing about the enslaved people who picked the cotton and tobacco or cut the sugar cane that paid for ornate hom...

Growing Up is Hard to Do

It’s a Saturday morning circa 2008. You’ve been watching cartoons all morning (mostly Tom and Jerry). You got up around 7 am, as per usual. The best shows are always on in the morning, and Mom only lets you watch TV until 10 am. You don’t understand why she does it, but when she threatens that you can’t watch anything before bed, you turn the tv off. You started the morning with a bowl full of Cinnamon Toast Crunch and maybe had a little spill of milk all over the floor, but it’s okay because yo...

Best party cities in the US

“Wild” is kind of a relative term. To some people, “wild” means staying up until the sun rises on consecutive nights, possibly ending up on a private jet somewhere over Bimini. To others, it means staying up past 9:00 PM on a weeknight so you can catch that extra episode of SVU. Point is, determining the “wildest” cities in the United States can be subjective. To help settle that debate, online sports book and betting tip site OLBG took a look at a series of factors — bars, strip clubs, and c...
