YouTube Executives Ignored Warnings, Letting Toxic Videos Run Rampant

YouTube Executives Ignored Warnings, Letting Toxic Videos Run Rampant

A year ago, Susan Wojcicki was on stage to defend YouTube. Her company, hammered for months for fueling falsehoods online, was reeling from another flare-up involving a conspiracy theory video about the Parkland, Florida high school shooting that suggested the victims were “crisis actors.” Wojcicki, YouTube’s chief executive officer, is a reluctant public ambassador, but she was in Austin at the South by Southwest conference to unveil a solution that she hoped would help quell conspiracy theories: a tiny text box from websites like Wikipedia that would sit below videos that questioned...

Biden Team to Buy 200 Million More Doses, Speed Up Vaccinations

Biden Team to Buy 200 Million More Doses, Speed Up Vaccinations

President Joe Biden said his administration intends to order 100 million more doses each of Pfizer Inc. and Moderna Inc.’s coronavirus vaccines, and at least temporarily speed up shipments to states to about 10 million doses a week. The new purchases would increase total U.S. orders for the two approved vaccines by 50%, to about 600 million shots, according to a senior administration official -- a supply that it expects to have available by the end of the summer, and which would be enough for 300 million people. Delivering a minimum 10 million doses to states would represent about a 16%...

U.S. Unleashes Military to Fight Fake News, Disinformation

U.S. Unleashes Military to Fight Fake News, Disinformation

Fake news and social media posts are such a threat to U.S. security that the Defense Department is launching a project to repel “large-scale, automated disinformation attacks,” as the top Republican in Congress blocks efforts to protect the integrity of elections. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency wants custom software that can unearth fakes hidden among more than 500,000 stories, photos, video and audio clips. If successful, the system after four years of trials may expand to detect malicious intent and prevent viral fake news from polarizing society. “A decade ago, today’s...

India’s Worsening Drought Is Forcing Doctors to Buy Water for Surgery

India’s Worsening Drought Is Forcing Doctors to Buy Water for Surgery

Along with other doctors in Indian cities facing unprecedented water shortages, T.N. Ravisankar in Chennai is praying for rain—and soon. Treating patients will “depend on God’s mercy” if water supplies in India’s fourth-largest metropolis aren’t replenished shortly, said Ravisankar, the chairman of Sudar hospitals, a chain of four clinics with 150 beds. Piped water at his hospitals has already dried up, and even the more expensive water trucks he now relies on may be unavailable soon in the state of Tamil Nadu.

Tesla Unveils ‘World’s Fastest Production Car’ and Electric Big Rig

Tesla Unveils ‘World’s Fastest Production Car’ and Electric Big Rig

Elon Musk pulled off a Steve Jobs-ian “one more thing” surprise at the unveiling of Tesla Inc.’s Semi model, rolling a new Roadster sports car out of the back of a big rig on stage. The Semi truck going into production in 2019 will boast 500 miles of range, a battery and motors that will last 1 million miles and cheaper total operating costs than diesel models, Tesla’s chief executive officer said. The Roadster, available a year later, will be the fastest production car ever made, he said.

Amazon Isn’t Paying Its Electric Bills. You Might Be

Amazon Isn’t Paying Its Electric Bills. You Might Be

For a little while earlier this year, it seemed as though 87-year-old Rosie Thomas and her neighbors in the small town of Gainesville, Va., had beaten Amazon. Virginia’s largest utility, Dominion Energy Inc., had planned to run an aboveground power line straight through a Civil War battlefield—and Thomas’s property—to reach a nearby data center run by an Amazon.com Inc. subsidiary. After three years of petitions and protests in front of the gated data center, skirmishes punctuated by barking dogs and shooing police, Dominion agreed to bury that part of the line along a nearby highway, at an...

Trump Says `Hate Has No Place' in U.S. After Two Mass Killings

Trump Says `Hate Has No Place' in U.S. After Two Mass Killings

Two mass shootings within 24 hours put the nation’s focus back onto gun control and, given the alleged anti-immigrant views of a shooter in Texas, elevate the issue of the dangers of hate speech. Gun control has been a mostly peripheral theme on the Democrats’ 2020 campaign trail until now. Some have written it off as a lost cause after years of violent incidents with little policy response from lawmakers or others. The topic dominated Sunday political talk shows, with presidential candidates including Beto O’Rourke, the former Congressman from El Paso, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and...

Why We Can’t Have the Male Pill

Why We Can’t Have the Male Pill

The trouble began, as it so often does, with a bottle of Chivas Regal. Back in the 1950s, scientists at Sterling Drug, a now-defunct pharmaceutical company, synthesized a class of chemicals that made male rats temporarily infertile. They thought they might be onto something big: the first-ever birth control pill—for men. After identifying several promising compounds, including one known as WIN 18,446, a trio of researchers began testing them on a ready population, inmates at the Oregon State Penitentiary. The results were astonishing. Within 12 weeks, the inmates’ sperm counts had...

Once a Trump Favorite, Harley Now Feels the Pinch From Trade War

Once a Trump Favorite, Harley Now Feels the Pinch From Trade War

Not long ago, President Donald Trump pointed to Harley-Davidson Inc. as an example of what was going to go right for manufacturing in America. Now, Harley seems to encapsulate a lot of what’s going wrong. Citing tariffs tied to escalating tension between Trump and the European Union, the iconic motorcycle maker will further retrench its U.S. operations. Bikes destined for the EU were made less viable by levies that’ll boost costs for the company by about $100 million a year.
