“While we are waiting for more facts, we know this: There is absolutely no place for violence or hate in America. And far too many Americans know a family member injured or killed as a result of gun violence. “We call on law enforcement to conduct a thorough investigation, including treating this as a hate crime,” the statement says. Our children are dedicated students who deserve to be able to focus on their studies and building their futures.”The ADC said it wants the shooting to be investigated as a hate crime. Abdalhamid is a student at Haverford College in Pennsylvania and Ali Ahmad studies at Trinity College in Connecticut.

Duke University president Vincent Price recently reminded us of the continuing value of people such as Jim Goodnight. Similarly, Jim Goodmon, also 80, continues to serve as, CEO and chairman of the board of Capitol Broadcasting Company (the parent company of WRAL-TV), the Durham Bulls, and other media and real estate ventures. Born in England he taught biostatistics at UNC-Chapel Hill and became the founder, CEO and chairman of the clinical research firm Quintiles Transnational, which changed its name to IQVIA in 2017. After retirement from Quintiles he has served as a partner of healthcare-focused investment firm NovaQuest Capital, which values his experience and judgment notwithstanding his advancing age. Perhaps the best example of the value of post-80 maturity and long experience is at the firm of Berkshire Hathaway.

Enhanced decision-making results from the varied perspectives and experiences a diverse workforce brings. It's a journey toward harnessing the full spectrum of human potential, closing gaps, and building a world where talent truly knows no boundaries.

According to The Wall Street Journal, which cited internal Amazon (NASDAQ: ) data and sources familiar with the matter, Amazon (AMZN) has surpassed both UPS (UPS) and FedEx (NYSE: ) to become the largest delivery business in the U.S. in terms of parcel volumes. Analysts at JPMorgan pointed out that Amazon excels in its one-way delivery network, ensuring quick delivery of goods. However, the company still lacks the extensive pick-up and delivery network that its competitors possess. In 2018, Amazon launched a significant initiative to build its logistics network. The company introduced a program allowing entrepreneurs to start their own delivery franchises for Amazon packages for as low as $10,000.

Many Americans think of school shootings as mass casualty events involving an adolescent with an assault-style weapon. But a new study says that most recent school shootings orchestrated by teenagers do not fit that image — and they are often related to community violence. But unlike many of the school shootings that make headlines, Sathya said, nearly 60% of the shooters in the study were Black. Investing in community violence intervention programs can help reduce this kind of violence in schools, according to Sathya. They also said there is a need for a standardized national reporting system, as many Americans depend on media sources to learn about school shootings.

*That* famous meme AntonioGuillem via Getty Images/iStockphotoAI has just turned the internet’s favourite memes into videos and the results are... mixed, to say the least. Interest in Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been growing rapidly ever since the chatbot ChatGPT went live. AdvertisementNow, other programmes have been used to turn still memes into moving images through AI – and it is creating some truly disturbing narratives. After all, memes are funny images, videos or text which are copied and spread across the internet with slight variations to alter its meaning. 4/ MEMEs are not going to be the same againReminds me of the live photos from Harry Potterpic.twitter.com/rM5JkIC2GS — Barsee 🐶 (@heyBarsee) November 26, 2023Even memes from YouTube videos have been reimagined – triggering some uncomfortable outcomes.

Even a short comment period on the new rule text would have helped to ensure that the rule prohibits securitization participants from betting against securitizations without stopping risk mitigating hedging, market-making, and other ordinary course transactions. I nevertheless continue to have concerns that we have not gotten the substance of the rule right. The rule covers, for example, transactions that do not result in the securitization participant’s interests being materially adverse to investors’ interests. The staff’s intense work on a technically difficult topic paid off in the form of a better rule than was proposed. I look forward to working with staff and affected market participants on implementing the rule.

As a public health investigator, she searches for clues: An emergency contact number listed by a patient during a clinic visit. Some patients are easily reached, but others cannot be found by public health nurses. Missing the second or third shot means starting the series over, so public health officials have to keep tabs on hard-to-reach patients. The pandemic exacerbated the crisis, as day-to-day testing and treatment services were interrupted and public health teams were pulled onto COVID-19 duties. “There are consequences when investments in public health are inadequate,” said David C. Harvey, executive director of the National Coalition of STD Directors.

The complaint, originally made public in redacted form, was the opening salvo in a lawsuit filed in late October by the attorneys general of 33 states. Company documents cited in the complaint described several Meta officials acknowledging the company designed its products to exploit shortcomings in youthful psychology such as impulsive behavior, susceptibility to peer pressure and the underestimation of risks, according to the reports. Others acknowledged Facebook and Instagram also were popular with children under age 13 who, per company policy, were not allowed to use the service. One Facebook safety executive alluded to the possibility that cracking down on younger users might hurt the company’s business in a 2019 email, according to the Journal report. The complaint noted that at times Meta has a backlog of up to 2.5 million accounts of younger children awaiting action, according to the newspaper reports.

That Google account you haven’t checked in years might be getting wiped this week. Beginning Friday, Google is moving ahead with its plan to delete accounts that have been inactive for at least two years. Google has been sending warnings to affected users since August, with multiple alerts sent to impacted accounts and user-provided backup emails. Google accounts include everything from Gmail to Docs to Drive to Photos, meaning all content sitting across an inactive user’s Google suite is at risk of erasure. In 2020, Google said users would have their content wiped from services they’d stopped using, but the accounts themselves would not be deleted.
