Arizona: You may soon have to give your DNA to the state and pay $250 for the privilege

Arizona could soon be one of the first states to maintain a massive statewide DNA database. And if the proposed legislation passes, many people — from parent school volunteers and teachers to real estate agents and foster parents — will have no choice but to give up their DNA. Under Senate Bill 1475, which Rep. David Livingston, R-Peoria, introduced, DNA must be collected from anyone who has to be fingerprinted by the state for a job, to volunteer in certain positions or for a myriad of other reasons. The bill would even authorize the medical examiner’s office in each county to take DNA…

Self-Driving Cars Might Kill Auto Insurance as We Know It: Without humans to cause accidents, 90% of risk is removed. Insurers are scrambling to prepare.

Dan Peate, a venture capitalist and entrepreneur in Southern California, was thinking of buying a Tesla Model X a few years ago—until he called his insurance company and found out how much his premiums would rise. “They quoted me $10,000 a year,” Peate recalled. For all the concern over accidents involving driverless cars, including Tesla’s troubles with its limited self-driving Autopilot mode, it’s easy to forget one of the supposed virtues of autonomous vehicles: They will make the roads safer. A sophisticated array of lidar, radar and cameras is expected to be more adept at detecting trouble than our mortal eyes and ears.…

Facebook is a law-breaking “digital gangster,” UK government report says

Facebook yesterday said it is willing to face “meaningful regulation” after UK lawmakers accused the company of acting like a “digital gangster” that has knowingly violated laws and helped spread Russian misinformation during elections. A House of Commons committee that oversees media policy chastised Facebook in a report on “disinformation and ‘fake news.'” “Companies like Facebook should not be allowed to behave like ‘digital gangsters’ in the online world, considering themselves to be ahead of and beyond the law,” the report said. “Facebook’s handling of personal data, and its use for political campaigns, are prime and legitimate areas for inspection…

John Haynes, Creator of Haynes Manuals, Dies at 80 … His do-it-yourself repair books have sold 200 million copies

If you’ve ever wrenched on a car, then you’ve probably used a Haynes repair manual. The iconic Haynes books, which feature colorful covers and often detailed cutaway drawings, have been a boon to do-it-yourselfers since they first appeared on shelves more than 50 years ago. With step-by-step instructions complete with photos and exploded diagrams, Haynes manuals have helped show many of us here at MotorTrend that it’s possible to fix almost anything on your own. We’re sad to report that the founder of Haynes Publishing and the author of the very first Haynes manual, John Haynes, has died at the age…

Jussie Smollett Refuses to Meet Chicago Police, Hires Crisis Management Firm

Empire actor Jussie Smollett is refusing to be questioned by the Chicago Police Department and has hired the services of a crisis management firm amid reports he staged an attack on himself last month. “There are no plans for Jussie Smollett to meet with Chicago police today,” Anna Kavanagh, a crisis manager at MediaPros24/7 said in a statement Monday. “Any news reports suggesting otherwise are inaccurate. Smollett’s attorneys will keep an active dialogue going with Chicago police on his behalf. We have no further comment today.” Chicago police on Sunday said they requested a follow-up interview with Smollett due to “new evidence” they obtained…

Rare U.S. Coins Salvaged from 1830s North Carolina Shipwreck Hit the Market

On June 14, 1838, the Steamship Pulaski was 40 miles off the coast of North Carolina when one of its boilers exploded in the middle of the night. The blast sent the ship and nearly half its 180-plus passengers (some of the wealthiest and most politically powerful people in the eastern United States) to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. Now, more than 180 years later, The State reports that 502 rare gold and silver coins salvaged from the shipwreck have been sold to a global coin dealer at a price that “wildly exceeded” expectations. It’s unclear the price the…

12 Establishment Media Journalists Who Fueled the Jussie Smollett Flames

Establishment media journalists and pundits uncritically accepted and promoted Jussie Smollett’s elaborate “hate crime” story, just one week after the mainstream media fostered the false narrative surrounding the Covington Catholic students, resulting in a laundry list of impending defamation lawsuits. Here’s 12 establishment media commentators and journalists who fueled the Jussie Smollett flames with impassioned and uncritical reactions to the Empire actor’s imaginative account of his supposed run-in with Trump supporters in “MAGA country” Chicago. 1. Eugene Scott – Washington Post‘s The Fix reporter “To many, the Smollett incident — and the political nature of the assault — is yet another reminder for…

Jaguar’s ‘connected car’ could mean you’ll never see a red light again

Silent, electric, self-driving cars are creating a new set of challenges for the world’s carmakers. But connected cars also promise to make life easier on the road. Vehicles that talk to each other, and to roadside infrastructure, have been under development for more than 20 years and promise to provide an early warning system by sharing information about road conditions, weather, traffic jams and crashes. Jaguar Land Rover is even developing a system that promises a life without red lights. Just over 150 years since the installation of the world’s first traffic lights, outside the Houses of Parliament in London,…

Rethinking happiness: Startling new book suggests dwelling on the past, feeling sorry for yourself – no one will remember you in 100 years anyway

When you think about happiness, the immediate reaction would be to imagine things that make you feel pleased, relieved, and/or content. However, Rolf Dobelli says that this may not be the best way to really be happy. According to him, everything you know about happiness is wrong. He claims that his techniques help him cope with challenges, whether big or small. Here are eight of them that you can try now, unless reading them makes you feel depressed from the start: Be grateful – You’ve already won the lottery in terms of the era in which you were born in.

What HAS Russia spotted in Earth’s upper atmosphere? Mysterious EXPLOSIONS OF LIGHT detected by satellite hint to unknown physical phenomenon

While numerous examples of unusual space weather phenomena have been spotted in the upper atmosphere before, the team operating the Lomonosov satellite say what they’ve found may be something entirely new. Despite the occurrence of several powerful bursts, Russian scientists say there were no signs of storms in the area. The satellite, named after scientist Mikhail Lomonosov, launched in 2016 and is integrated with the Kanopus-B spacecraft. Its goal is to study high-energy cosmic rays, including gamma rays, magnetospheric particles, and transient light phenomena in the upper atmosphere. And, the scientists now say it’s spotted something odd. ‘With the help…

House bill requires pornography filter on all phones, computers purchased in Kansas

Two bills introduced in the Kansas House on Wednesday generate funding for human trafficking programs by requiring all new internet-capable telephones or computers sold in the state to feature anti-pornography software and by mandating adult entertainment businesses charge a special admissions tax. Sabetha Rep. Randy Garber sponsored legislation requiring the software installations and dictating purchasers would have to pay a $20 fee to the state, and whatever cost was assessed by retail stores, to remove filters for “obscene” material. No one under 18 would be allowed to have filter software deleted. “It’s to protect children,” Garber, a Republican, said in…

Air Quality Level Inside Average U.S. Home May Be Comparable To ‘Polluted Major City,’ Shocking Study Finds

Just when you thought staying in was one way to avoid pollution from surrounding cities and heavy road traffic, a new study is sounding the alarm on the cleanliness of the air inside our own homes. Researchers from the University of Colorado Boulder say the average house is prone to “indoor air quality levels on par with a polluted major city,” and everyday activities like cooking and cleaning may be to blame. The authors believe that chemicals found in common household substances are even seeping outdoors, creating more air pollution than cars and trucks do. “Homes have never been considered…

How did the police know you were near a crime scene? Google told them

The suspects in an Eden Prairie home invasion last October wore gloves, dressed in black, and covered their faces with masks. But despite their efforts to remain unseen, a trail of evidence was left behind — not at the crime scene, but with Google. Knowing the Silicon Valley giant held a trove of consumer mobile phone location data, investigators got a Hennepin County judge to sign a “reverse location” search warrant ordering Google to identify the locations of cellphones that had been near the crime scene in Eden Prairie, and near two food markets the victims owned in Minneapolis and…

300,000 cows drown after Australia sees a year’s worth of rain in a week

Hundreds of thousands of cows are believed to have died in floods in northern Australia after the state of Queensland was hit by record rainfall. A torrential downpour that lashed the coastal city of Townsville on Saturday and Sunday swept inland and flooded grazing land across the region this week. The floodwaters are estimated to have killed up to 300,000 cattle worth up to $300m Australian dollars (£164m) to the country’s farming industry, according to Australian Associated Press. “It’s devastated the country … there’s stock dead everywhere. Not just cattle, it’s sheep, kangaroos, wild pigs, they’ve all died and suffered…

It was a HOAX! Jussie Smollett hate crime “attack” was completely staged… actual police work unmasked flimsy plot to stoke racial hatred across America

The Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax is now unraveling in spectacular fashion. The entire thing was apparently staged, just as we predicted would finally come out. Naturally, the entire Trump-hating left-wing media went along with the ploy without a scintilla of fact checking. Just the claim alone — that MAGA-hat wearing Trump supporters attacked Smollett for being black and gay — was enough for virtually every liberal media outlet to proclaim the attack happened just as Smollett had described. Now it’s increasingly obvious the entire thing was staged. As PJ Media now reports in breaking news: On Saturday night, Chicago…

Huge earthquake in Bolivia reveals vast underground mountain range BIGGER than anything on Earth’s surface

Classic sci-fi writer Jules Verne once imagined a whole subterranean landscape deep inside the planet, complete with lost prehistoric species and plant life. The book was aptly titled Journey to the Centre of the Earth. Now, a new research is revealing features in the underworld resembling structures on the surface. Far from a bubbling hot mess, there are mountains deep below rivalling anything up here… Yes, there’s a chance that these mountains are bigger than anything on the surface of the Earth… So taller than the Everest! Geophysicists from Princeton University in the US and the Chinese Academy of Sciences used the echoes of…

Facebook’s internal security goons track ex-employees and critics using Facebook’s apps

If you’re a disgruntled ex-Facebooker or someone who “made threatening statements” against the company, there’s a chance its internal security force is tracking your location and activities, using Facebook’s apps and other tracking tools. Given the scale of Facebook and the number of people the company has infuriated, this watchlist could be very big indeed — as CNBC points out, if the company tracks 0.1% of its users this way, it’s keeping tabs on 270,000 people. At least one of the company’s blacklists, the weekly updated BOLO (“Be On the Lookout”) list, has “hundreds” of names on it. You can…

It’s Really Happening: Nancy Pelosi Threatens Gun Confiscation Amid National Emergency

In a stunning admission of the left’s draconian plans for America, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned that a Democrat president will declare a national emergency to confiscate firearms because President Trump somehow set a precedent declaring a national emergency to secure the U.S. southern border. “The precedent that the president is setting here is something that should be met with great unease and dismay by the Republicans,” she warned Thursday at a press conference. “..If the president can declare an emergency on something that he has created as an emergency, an illusion that he wants to convey, just think of…

Donald Trump Jr., Others Slam Jussie Smollett, Media Coverage Surrounding Alleged Trump Supporter Hate Crime

In the wake of Saturday’s news that “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett may have hired two Nigerian men to stage a hate crime against him, Donald Trump Jr. and other conservatives slammed media coverage around the actor’s claim to be the victim of a hate crime perpetrated by Trump supporters. CNN cited two sources close to the investigation who told the network the brothers, who were arrested on Wednesday and released Friday, are “now cooperating fully with law enforcement.” The brothers, one of whom worked on the set of “Empire” with Smollett, reportedly purchased a rope that was put around the…

‘Mass Riots’: Democratic 2020 Candidate Warns Driverless Trucks Will Lead To ‘Outbreak Of Violence’

The implementation of driverless trucks will lead to suicides and “an outbreak of violence,” according to Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang. Yang said he thinks it’s inevitable that some of America’s 3.5 million truck drivers will react violently to being replaced by driverless trucks. “There’s going to be a lot of passion, a lot of resistance to this. Anyone who thinks truck drivers are just going to shrug and say, ‘Alright, I had a good run. I’ll just go home and figure it out’ — that’s not going to be their response,” Yang said Tuesday in an interview with podcast…

Embarrassment for 2020 Democrats after Jussie Smollett attack story unravels

Democratic presidential candidates jockeying for position in 2020 had a lot to say when actor Jussie Smollett said he was attacked in Chicago by two white men who shouted racist and homophobic slurs as they beat him. But they were silent on Saturday, when law enforcement sources said that Chicago Police believed “Empire” star Smollett, 36, who is gay, paid two black men to set up the assault. Police arrested the men, who are brothers from Nigeria, on Wednesday but released them Friday after discovering “new evidence.” A Chicago police spokesman said: “We can confirm that the information received from…

11-year-old arrested for confrontation after refusal to stand for Pledge

An 11-year-old Lawton Chiles Middle Academy student was arrested Feb. 4 and charged with disrupting a school function and resisting arrest without violence following a confrontation with school officials and a law enforcement officer. The incident happened after his refusal to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance and his refusal to stand after ordered by the substitute teacher. Polk County Public Schools spokesman Kyle Kennedy said the sixth-grader “was arrested after becoming disruptive and refusing to follow repeated instructions by school staff and law enforcement.” Kennedy said he wanted to make it clear that the student was not arrested for…

Tech Whiz Who Made Millions in His 20s….Was Dead by 34

Colin Kroll, a college dropout turned startup millionaire, drifted through his company’s holiday party at Gran Morsi, a cozy Italian restaurant in downtown Manhattan. Dressed in a gray sweater and jeans, he chatted up employees and their plus ones. When one of his engineers offered to get Mr. Kroll a drink, he flashed a big smile. “I’ve stopped drinking. I’m trying to be healthier.” He’d started running regularly, too. “Look at you, being such a great CEO,” she said. Co-workers at the party chuckled to themselves about his earnestness as he circulated among the crowd asking, “Are you having a…

MAGA Country: hate hoax actor could face 3 years in prison….

Empire star Jussie Smollett has furiously denied paying two Nigerian brothers $3,500 to attack him and says he is ‘angered and devastated’ after investigators in Chicago claimed he orchestrated his own assault. Smollett’s attorneys, Todd S. Pugh and Victor P. Henderson, told Entertainment Weekly: ‘As a victim of a hate crime who has cooperated with the police investigation, Jussie Smollett is angered and devastated by recent reports that the perpetrators are individuals he is familiar with. ‘He has now been further victimized by claims attributed to these alleged perpetrators that Jussie played a role in his own attack. Nothing is further from…

Virginia Lawmakers Quietly Enact Speed Camera Law: Speed camera cash recipient quietly rushes through a law that will station speed cameras on Virginia freeways

Speed cameras will soon appear on Virginia freeways under legislation that cleared the General Assembly on Wednesday. That leaves the final decision on implementing cameras to Governor Ralph Northam (D), who is currently embroiled in scandal from the discovery of his medical school yearbook photographs that show him appearing either in blackface or a Klu Klux Klan uniform. Assuming the bill obtains Northam’s signature, the state police will have the authority to set up automated speed traps in highway work zones beginning July 1. In these locations, a private company would mail $125 tickets to the owners of vehicles photographed…

How Nancy Pelosi Earned Her Fortune May Surprise You – Average Citizen Would Be Targeted For The Same Thing

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is rich, filthy rich.  She and her husband have accumulated a ton of wealth, but have not been so eager, like many Democrats, to part with it and put their money where their mouths are concerning giving to other to take care of needs.  Yet, she is among the first to misquote Scripture, like the devil, in order to use government to steal your resources to claim they are caring for their neighbor and doing what the Bible commands while doing nothing more than making sure they retain their power in DC.  A new report is…
