According to the Guardian, around 2018 an internal program at Apple aimed to rewrite how Siri would respond to “controversial” subjects such as the #MeToo Movement and feminism. People working on the project were advised to find ways for Siri to answer these questions by either not engaging, deflecting the question, or providing a neutral answer. Okay, Siri, who do you think you are, Robert Mueller at a confirmation hearing? However, even if this program was meant to avoid controversy, its approach ignores some major truths. Feminism exists, and simply avoiding using …

Conservative activists pressure McConnell on election security

(CNN)Conservative activists are calling on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to support funding to upgrade voting machines across the country that critics argue are out of date and insecure. Norquist said he supports a version of the Secure Elections Act, a bipartisan bill introduced last year by members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, though it’s yet to be reintroduced this year. While generally considered less stringent than other election security bills, the Secure Elections Act would motivate states to replace all-digital voting machines by appropriating funds for replacements only if the money would go toward equipment that relies on paper ballots. Democrats largely place the blame on McConnell, a Kentucky Republican who has refused to pick up various election security …

A Story About Being Unfillable

Kimberley Chung Updated September 14, 2019 Sarah Loven Kimberley Chung Updated September 14, 2019 Sarah Loven Some things never really change. We may have surpassed evolution quite some time ago, but some traits never really go away. Back in time, humans hunt and collect food to survive.

Vicente Gonzalez on Sunday flipped his support from Julin Castro to Joe Biden for the Democratic presidential nomination, saying now is the time to narrow the 2020 field and unite as Democrats.
