Montana man’s DNA traces back 17,000 years in Americas, North Dakota town remembers epic 1969 spring

Montana man’s DNA traces back 17,000 years in Americas, North Dakota town remembers epic 1969 spring break party, and more This conversation is moderated according to USA TODAY’s community rules. Please read the rules before joining the discussion. Montgomery: After 15 inmate suicides in 15 months, a federal judge ruled Saturday that the state is putting prisoners in danger by failing to provide adequate suicide-prevention measures. U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson wrote that there are “severe and systemic inadequacies” in the Alabama Department of Corrections’ care of inmates and that the facts behind recent suicides show unconstitutional conditions persist in state prisons. “It is true that, as in the free world, not all suicides can be prevented. But this reality in no way excuses ADOC’s substantial and pervasive suicide-prevention inadequacies. Unless and until ADOC lives up to its Eighth Amendment obligations, avoidable tragedies will continue,” Thompson wrote at the conclusion of the 210-page opinion. Thompson noted some “promising” measures but said they were “too little, too late.” Bethel: A company is investing in development programs for youths and others to fu...

I AM sure many new car buyers must have realised by now that the five-year warranty

I AM sure many new car buyers must have realised by now that the five-year warranty is more of a bane than a boon. More and more car brands are resorting to this apparently subtle strategy to promote sales. The big question is whether such a warranty benefits the buyers or sellers more. Cost of parts and services under the warranty period provided by authorised workshops is exorbitant (usually 200% more compared with freelance ones). The only good thing is that they (authorised workshops ) provide genuine parts, so to speak. On the service side itself, at times it leaves one wondering whether certain parts and fluids have really been replaced/changed, as in all occasions car owners are not allowed to go in the workshop to see the work in progress even for a brief moment. At freelance workshops, customers are permitted to see the repairs in progress if they want to do so. When it comes to warranty claims, in most cases the buyers end up as suckers whereby, after much hassle, the faulty parts are usually only repaired but not replaced. Why can’t big established automotive brands give their customers new replacements if the faulty goods are returned regardless of liabilities and w...

A Lake County couple’s rural paradise went bad when a corporate medical marijuana farm moved in next door | News | Orlando

The noise started on an early morning in February, as Ted and Vickie Miller were sound asleep and snoring in the confines of their farm-style home off County Road 44A in Eustis. It sounded like an engine cranking up at first. Ted sat up in bed, confused and panicked, with that feeling of going from unconscious to incensed in a matter of seconds. “What are you doing?” Vickie asked him. “I think somebody’s stealing my tractor,” Ted told her, leaping from between the sheets to grab one of his rifles and run outside to the back porch. “What the hell?” Ted wondered aloud, as he peered into the dark, dense woods behind their five-acre plot of land, where they’ve lived for 29 years. He could smell the skunk-like aroma of cannabis wafting through the air. That’s when it struck him: The noise – the low-hum buzzing, like a gasoline-powered generator humming around the corner, like the sound of a jet engine that’s idling on a taxiway – was coming from the weed farm next door. The smell of cannabis coming from the facility is something they can deal with, the Millers say. Though they lean socially conservative in most respects and ...

I finally had my own house. It was a repossession, and I bought it for a

I finally had my own house. It was a repossession, and I bought it for a song. What was supposed to be a quick remodel quickly turned into the removal of most of the drywall in the house. There was a silver lining on this cloud of drywall dust and loose insulation. Rather than constantly retro-fitting cabling and gadgets in as needed, I could install everything ahead of time. A blank canvas, when the size of a house, can overwhelm a hacker. I’ve spent hours thinking through the infrastructure of my house, and many times I’ve wished for a guide written from a hacker’s perspective. This is that guide, or at least the start of it. What do you want your smart house to do? And what do you want to be able to do in your smart house? For example, I wanted to be able to upgrade my cheap 120 V welder to a beefier 240 V model, so adding a 240 V plug in the garage was a must. As a bonus, that same 240 V circuit could be used for charging an electric car, if ever one is parked there. “Ethernet everywhere” was my mantra. Try to imagine everywhere you might want to plug in a desktop, a laptop, an access point, or even a VoIP phone. I decided I wanted at least two Ethernet drops to each room, a...

Trump, Visiting Troops in Iraq, Makes False Claims About Raising Military Pay

WASHINGTON — President Trump bragged Wednesday to troops stationed in Iraq that he had secured them a massive pay raise, repeating a false claim he’s made repeatedly on the campaign trail. Trump, who spent more than three hours along with First Lady Melania Trump at Al Asad Air Base near Baghdad, addressed several hundred servicemen and -women, boasting that he had delivered them “one of the biggest pay raises you’ve ever received.” The president also stated — incorrectly — that he had authorized the first military pay increase in a decade. “You haven’t gotten one in more than 10 years,” Trump said. “More than 10 years. And we got you a big one. I got you a big one. I got you a big one.” Military pay, in fact, has risen every year for three decades. It was raised 2.4% in 2018 and will rise by another 2.6% in 2019, due to the National Defense Authorization Act signed by Trump in August. Although the 2.6% increase is the largest in nine years, Trump still exaggerated significantly, claiming that he delivered a pay raise some four times larger than that and, in another uncertain anecdote, that he fought for it...

A Deep Dive Into the Plans to Take Tourists to the ‘Titanic’ | Innovation

The world looks very different through the eye of the Cyclops. I learned this one freezing morning this past February, after trudging through two feet of snow to get to the marina in Everett, Washington, a small port 45 minutes north of Seattle. On the dock was a cylindrical white pod about the size of a moving van, a five-person submersible whose protruding, semi-spherical window inspired its name, after the monocular monster of myth. A half-dozen men wearing thickly padded khaki jumpsuits and orange helmets gathered on the snow-covered dock ready to send me under the ice-flecked waves of Puget Sound. The schedule was as rigorously timed as a rocket launch. “Vessel prep” had been completed at dawn, so after a pre-dive briefing, I climbed a ladder to the top hatch of the sub, took off my boots and clambered into the tube, which was sheathed in perforated stainless steel. Inside, the pilot Kenny Hague was checking instruments, including the modified Sony PlayStation controllers used to steer the sub underwater. There were no seats, but with only three of us on the dive (the other was staff member Joel Perry), I could stretch out like a pasha on a black vinyl mat. With the submers...
