US body on AI calls for creating India-US strategic tech alliance

According to the Commission, in recent years, India has redoubled its efforts to improve its AI infrastructure.

The US should build a formal tech alliance with India that will help develop an overarching Indo-Pacific strategy focused on emerging technology, an independent federal commission on artificial intelligence has said. The newly-created National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence in its report on Tuesday said the Department of State and the Department of Defence should negotiate formal AI cooperation agreements with India, Australia, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea and Vietnam.

In the report submitted to the Congress and President Donald Trump, the Commission underlined that America must build on the strength of its allies and partners to win the global technology competition and preserve free and open societies. This recommendation builds on growing support for the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue, a strategic forum among the US, Australia, India, and Japan, and calls for formalising

Body camera footage shows chaos

CLOSE

LMPD body camera footage shows the moments of chaos and confusion in the aftermath of the March 13 Breonna Taylor shooting.

Louisville Courier Journal

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Everywhere there was confusion and chaos.

“10-30! 10-30! Officer down! Officer shot on Springfield!” an officer frantically told a dispatcher.

Body cameras worn by Louisville Metro Police officers who raced to the St. Anthony Gardens apartment complex on Springfield Drive around 1 a.m. March 13 captured the frantic aftermath on tape.

An officer was shot, they were told. The shooter was still in the apartment.

What they weren’t told — not right away — was that a 26-year-old woman was shot dead inside.

Her name was Breonna Taylor.

The dramatic video footage from the officers who arrived on the scene was released last week as part of the investigative file into Taylor’s death.

There is no footage of the shooting itself. The

How many organs are in the human body?

Since ancient times, humankind has sought to understand the guts inside us. Ancient Egyptians handled human organs as they removed them for embalming. Medical manuscripts found in an ancient Chinese tomb may be the earliest-known anatomical writing about the human body. Thousands of years later, do we know how many organs are in the human body?

Organs are collections of tissues that work together for a common goal, explained Lisa M.J. Lee, an associate professor in the Department of Cell & Developmental Biology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. “Every organ provides a function for human performance or survival,” she told Live Science.

But not every organ is necessary for survival. Only five organs — the brain, heart, liver, at least one kidney, and at least one lung are absolutely essential for living. Losing total function of any one of these vital organs spells death. Remarkably,

Brad Parscale describes marital problems in back of police car, body camera footage shows

A drunken, tearful Brad Parscale sobs to a responding officer in the back of a police car and explains that he “couldn’t accept” that his wife won’t sleep with him in a newly released video.

“I just couldn’t accept she isn’t having sex with me. I couldn’t accept it,” Parscale, President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, tells an officer as he sits in the back of a police car.

“She doesn’t?” the officer asks.

“No. Not in months. I just couldn’t accept it. I kept asking her,” Parscale says. “I’m filing for divorce tomorrow as soon as I get out of here. I’m gonna do this thing, whatever, and prove I’m not [expletive] crazy.”

The Daily Mail, the UK-based tabloid, obtained the police bodycam footage. In another video, an officer photographs bruises on Candice Parscale’s arms and a cut on her lip.

He asks her how she got the

Body Camera Footage Shows Detailed Aftermath of Breonna Taylor’s Killing

Body camera footage from the night Breonna Taylor was killed has been released by the Louisville Metro Police Department, CBS News reports. The footage raises questions about why Taylor’s home was targeted. 

More than 250 videos and over 4,000 pages of documents were released on Wednesday, one of which shows Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, outside the home after she had been shot telling the police that his partner had died. 

“Who else is in the apartment?” an officer asks Walker. “Nobody,” he replied. “My girlfriend’s dead.”

The SWAT team then enters the home and designates the residence a crime scene. One officer is then heard saying “We have to be mindful of what we say, we are on camera now.” After checking Taylor’s pulse, a member of the SWAT team can be heard saying “she’s done,” per TMZ. The outlet also points out that the graphic video shows “bloodstains on

Louisville police release body camera videos showing night Breonna Taylor was killed: “My girlfriend’s dead”

Louisville police have released a batch of evidence from an investigation of the raid that killed Breonna Taylor in March. It raises new questions over why police targeted her home in an effort to prosecute her ex-boyfriend.

A police lieutenant who came to the scene after the shooting told investigators, “something really bad happened.”

The material includes more than 250 videos and more than 4,000 pages of documents. It was released Wednesday as the outcry for justice for Taylor continues. 

Former Detective Brett Hankison pleaded not guilty to three counts of wanton endangerment for endangering the lives of three people in the neighboring apartment, the only charges that were filed by the grand jury reviewing Taylor’s death. Neither Hankison nor the two other officers involved in the fatal police shooting were charged directly with Taylor’s death.

Body camera video shows brutal attack on Los Angeles officer

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police released shocking video Wednesday that captured a brutal attack on an officer inside a station last month, including footage from the officer’s own body-worn camera that shows a violent struggle for his gun.

The 21-minute video compilation of the Sept. 26 assault includes footage from a surveillance camera at the station and the body camera of Officer Anthony Freeman, as well as from the body cameras of officers who arrested suspect Jose Cerpa Guzman.

Freeman, a veteran of the department for more than 30 years, survived the attack. He had not yet returned to work as of Wednesday, the LAPD said.


At one point, the graphic footage shows his blood dripping onto the lobby floor of the Harbor Station in the Sen Pedro area of Los Angeles as he shouts for an ambulance, breathing heavily and saying, “I’m starting to black out!”

Body size of the extinct Megalodon indeed off the charts in the shark world — ScienceDaily

A new study shows that the body size of the iconic gigantic or megatooth shark, about 15 meters (50 feet) in length, is indeed anomalously large compared to body sizes of its relatives.

Formally called Otodus megalodon, the fossil shark that lived nearly worldwide roughly 15-3.6 million years ago is receiving a renewed look at the significance of its body size in the shark world, based on a new study appearing in the international journal Historical Biology.

Otodus megalodon is commonly portrayed as a super-sized, monstrous shark, in novels and films such as the 2018 sci-fi thriller “The Meg,” but it is known that the scientifically justifiable maximum possible body size for the species is about 15 meters (50 feet). Nonetheless, it is still an impressively large shark, and the new study illuminates exactly how uniquely gigantic the shark was, according to Kenshu Shimada, a paleobiologist at DePaul University

Women who have had repeated and unexplained pregnancy loss have an altered perception and brain response to men’s body odor — ScienceDaily

Women who have suffered unexplained repeated pregnancy loss (uRPL) have altered perceptions and brain responses to male body odours, in comparison to those with no history of uRPL, suggests a new study published today in eLife.

The results could lead to urgently needed answers for many women who experience repeat miscarriage with no clear underlying explanation.

Around 50% of human conceptions and 15% of human pregnancies result in miscarriage, but only a limited number of these can be explained. Body odour has been linked to many aspects of healthy human reproduction — such as synchrony of menstruation between women who live together, and the influence of body odours of breast-feeding women on the timing of ovulation and menstruation in others.

“Given that sense of smell is associated with human reproduction, we hypothesised that it may also be related to disorders of human reproduction,” explains lead author Liron Rozenkrantz, who
