By Sandee LaMotte, CNN Updated 1119 GMT (1919 HKT) April 27, 2021 (CNN) Amanda Saucedo did everything the natural parenting blogs she read told her to do before she brought her newborn son Ben into her bed to co-sleep in October 2014. "I was a single mom of two kids, so I took sleep any way I could get it," said Saucedo, who was 27 at the time. "I was like, 'These people say it's safe if I take these precautions,' so that's what I did -- only one pillow, one blanket and only the mom in the bed, with a baby that is exclusively breastfed." Saucedo had successfully co-slept with Ben's older brother, 3-year-old Trae, and thought she was even more cautious with Ben. But on the morning Ben turned 30 days old, Saucedo woke to find him dead -- a victim of sudden infant death syndrome, or SIDS. "There wasn't anything on him when I woke," Saucedo said. "We were sleeping on my bed, so of course the mattress isn't going to be as firm as a crib mattress. So it could have … [Read more...] about Soft bedding continues to claim infant lives despite warnings, study finds

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin The context is transitioning from fossil energy to renewables. One key aspect of this is transport via gasoline or diesel vehicles and its transition to electric motors driven by batteries or hydrogen. The fossil fuel industry should be concerned about the efficiency and cost of sustainable transport, because that will determine the speed of the transition which will likely affect the decline of oil production and perhaps the oil and gas industry itself. Elon Musk knows batteries. He builds them: to propel cars and trucks, at one bookend, to grid-scale behemoths that store and stabilize electrical power for hundreds of homes and commercial enterprises, at the other bookend. Last week, May 12, 2022, Musk said hydrogen “is the most dumb thing I could possibly imagine for energy storage.” This is not the first time, as Musk has made similar negative comments in past years. A few years ago, Musk told reporters that hydrogen … [Read more...] about Is Elon Musk Right Or Wrong To Dismiss Hydrogen Use For Low-Carbon Energy Storage?
In the months prior to the outbreak of civil war in Syria, I led a State Department delegation on a controversial trip to Syria that included a sit-down with Bashar al-Assad. Our intention was to muscle the Syrian dictator on a series of security issues in the field of technology. The weaponization of widely available consumer technology was making it easier to surveil, spread disinformation, and both develop and destroy political movements. Our delegation was there to apply political and economic pressure to try to get Assad moving in the right direction. advertisement advertisement The thing that made this delegation walking into Assad’s office different from any other was that it was not composed of diplomats or government officials from the Pentagon or CIA. It was comprised of senior executives from American companies including Cisco Systems, Verisign, Microsoft, and others. Our view was that the companies held the power to be more persuasive under … [Read more...] about From Cold War to ‘Code War:’ Why government needs tech talent now

(Reuters) A delegation of senior parliamentarians from the European Union (EU) that is in New Delhi is likely to explore an early-harvest trade deal with India in an attempt to break the deadlock over a proposed mega trade and investment agreement. Recent early-harvest agreements that India signed with Australia and the United Arab Emirates have generated much interest in the EU and politicians from the bloc are keen to work out a similar deal, people familiar with the development said. Proposed in 2007, the Broad-based Trade and Investment Agreement (BTIA) was the subject of 16 formal rounds of talks until 2013 that have remained inconclusive. An early-harvest trade deal is one in which both parties sign off on a set of relatively easily achievable deliverables. Such pacts target … [Read more...] about Exclusive| EU MPs in India to explore early-harvest trade deal
When the Federal Communications Commission voted to institute strong net neutrality rules in 2015, it was because millions of people from across the political spectrum spoke out. If there’s one thing everyone can agree on, it’s that cable and phone companies shouldn’t be able to screw us over more than they already do, or dictate which websites and apps we can use. advertisement advertisement When the Trump administration’s notorious FCC chairman Ajit Pai repealed those Obama-era protections in 2017, the move sparked some of the largest online protests in human history. Net neutrality supporters crowdfunded billboards, protested in the streets, and drove millions of phone calls, comments, and emails to regulators and lawmakers. To this day, the FCC’s repeal of net neutrality remains the government action that received the most filed opposition comments by individual people in history. Democrats seized on this outpouring of … [Read more...] about When will Democrats deliver on their promise to restore net neutrality?
By Julia Hollingsworth , CNN Updated 0430 GMT (1230 HKT) March 20, 2021 (CNN) Kathleen Folbigg has spent the past 18 years in prison for one of the most horrific crimes imaginable: killing all four of her babies. But new scientific evidence suggests that's not what happened. Genomic testing shows at least two of the Australian's babies likely died from a previously undiscovered genetic mutation that led to heart complications -- meaning she may have been wrongfully imprisoned for almost two decades. The finding has prompted 90 scientists -- including two Australian Nobel Laureates -- to ask the governor of New South Wales to pardon Folbigg and let her walk free. If that happens, Folbigg's case will be one of the worst miscarriages of justice in Australian history. The ramifications don't end there.

Nike has doubled down on litigation against StockX in a heavyweight lawsuit between the biggest shoe manufacturer in the world and the hypebeast shoe resale platform that’s now valued at $3.8 billion . advertisement advertisement The battle started in February, when Nike filed a trademark suit against StockX, after StockX announced a program that promised to turn your shoe purchases on its site into instant NFTs. (Nike, having not minted these NFTs itself, claimed StockX was misusing its trademark by minting NFTs from Nike shoes.) Then last week, Nike upped the legal ante: It added an accusation of counterfeiting on top of its existing trademark suit, claiming that it purchased four pairs of fake Nikes from StockX. At first glance, the story may look like another example of Nike being overly protective of its intellectual property. Last June, Nike sued the Brooklyn-based art collective MSCHF, after the group released Satan Shoes, which were Nikes … [Read more...] about Nike is suing StockX for allegedly selling counterfeit shoes.
