For some reason, Putin wants that dufuss from Louisville to control the Senate. Why else would Putin try to help Republican Senators in AZ and IL get reelected?
Officials are concerned that the Russians are attempting to interfere in the U.S. election and sow doubt about the electoral process.

Good news for nematode haters and fresh food eaters.
Field studies in two Florida locations evaluated and compared anaerobic soil disinfestations (ASD) and chemical soil fumigation (CSF) performance on weed and nematodes control, and on fruit yield and quality of fresh-market tomato. Results indicated that ASD (applied using a mixture of composted poultry litter and molasses as carbon source) may be a potentially sustainable alternative to conventional CSF for controlling plant-parasitic nematodes ...

Liability is the problem. Uber and Lyft cannot defend lawsuits where both hardware, bought from automakers, and software are accused of failing-unsafely. Only the maker will have the billions x billions of similar simulated instances to show why an automaton killed my baby on purpose as the least damaging outcome. That will minimize settlement costs.
Volvo Cars and Uber join forces to develop autonomous driving cars (photo credit: Volvo) With the recent announcements of aggressive plans to deploy autonomous vehicles in ride-hailing services, the end-game for the companies in this space seems clear. All of the tens of thousands of drivers they’ve been recruiting in recent [...]

Of course, the CA PUC has not noticed how clear and sunny the afternoon sky is for the days and weeks that the grid is overheating to make up for the fact that only 20% of peak electricity, generated by local solar would be enough. Add smart controls ala Google's AI and local citizens could weather in place even if the grid failed.

If the online high speed data links are via poles supporting emergency power, light and communication, the the Pole Owners have a point. Otherwise the 'public domain' poles should be shared. Spanning a flood is too important to disturb.
Google Fiber can’t always access AT&T utility poles despite US-wide agreement.

Sites with annoying interstitials punish themselves. Advertisers who pay the sludge of the earth to harass their best clients will learn, if they ever master AdWorlds, how much they have harmed themselves!

I access hundreds of sites daily and rarely revisit sites that waste my time.

Google signed up to equip 400 RR stations with WiFi. Each station has numerous historical and technological sites of important heritage that can be explored as people await trains.
Indian Railways will collaborate with Google for digitizing and showcasing its heritage on digital platforms.

Condos filled with 24/7 professionals and club houses of gated communities can have wideband internet without permission from telecoms or cable cos. This is a good thing. Moreover, antennas driven by Google Fiber Huts can assure connectivity for emergencies. Of course incumbents will claim innovative ways to let grandma roast in her home, grandpa overpay for sports on TV and local students be spared access to information. Facts don't matter to incumbents and their lobbyists in Congress.
Wireless could help Google Fiber avoid fights with incumbents over pole access.

Spare me the advice. Riding bikes, jogging or walking to work during temperature inversions in the Bay Area can take 15 years off your useful life. Oh sure, MDs can keep your heart pumping for fifteen years after you give up the triathlon. GLWT
According to DEM, air quality is predicted to reach unhealthy levels during the afternoon and evening hours on Friday.
