  3. It's a celebratory moment for the majority of us because President Donald Trump has taken his final steps out of the White House, boarding Marine One ahead of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration. In just a few hours, a new administration will be inaugurated, which means that Trump's horrific reign over the country is nearly complete. After four harsh years of casual xenophobia and racism, a deadly pandemic, and false claims of election fraud, the orange man is finally walking out of the White House for the final time. A video was captured of his final speech outside of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, showing the President and First Lady addressing a crowd of reporters before boarding Marine One as the Village People's "YMCA" blared over loudspeakers. "We have worked hard. As the athletes would say, we left it all on the field," said Trump. "In a month, when we're sitting in Florida, we're not gonna be looking at each other and say, 'you know, if we only worked a little bit harder'. You can't work harder. And we had a lot of obstacles. We went through the obstacles and we just got 75 million votes and that's a record in the history of sitting Presidents. That's an all-time record by a lot, by many millions, in the history of sitting Presidents." Of course, Trump also continued to spew his casual xenophobia by referring to the coronavirus as the China Virus. Did we expect any less? The moment ended as Trump took his final walk to Marine One with the First Lady, waving his farewell before hopefully disappearing forever. But that wasn't before he said he'd "be back in some form". Watch the moment above. [via] View the full article
  4. Today, January 20th, 2021, Joe Biden will be sworn in as the 46th President of the United States. Between the rapidly-spreading COVID-19 pandemic and the potential threat of violence, this particular Inauguration ceremony has been scaled down for safety reasons. Though Biden and his Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will indeed take their oath live at the West Front of the Capitol, they will not be doing so in front of the crowds that have historically come out to spectate and celebrate the historic event. SAUL LOEB/AFP via Getty Images Instead, Biden and Harris's inaugural committee have arranged for the crowd to be replaced by hundreds of thousands of American flags, a symbolic representation of those unable to attend. That's not to say it will be entirely quiet; CNN cites spokesman Major Aaron Thacker, who confirms that over twenty-five thousand National Guard troops will be on-foot across Washington D.C. As it stands, Joe Biden is set to become President at 12PM EST, though he will not be met by former President Trump and former First Lady Melania Trump. For those interested in checking out today's Inauguration ceremony, we've compiled a few places interested parties can live stream the event, as well as the ensuing virtual festivities organized by the Biden camp. CNN has already begun their live stream coverage; The Biden Presidential Inaugural Committee will also be streaming it on their official website and on YouTube; CBS News provides coverage right here; ABC's coverage is here; and for those of a Republican bent, Fox News coverage is right here. We've also embedded the Inaugural Committee's stream for your convenience. Though Biden will be taking the stage at 12 PM, the National Anthem will be performed by Lady Gaga at 11:30 AM Est, with an additional musical performance from Jennifer Lopez. Later tonight, beginning at 8:30 PM EST, Tom Hanks will be hosting an Inauguration Day Special, featuring appearances from celebrities like Jon Bon Jovi, Demi Lovato Justin Timberlake, and Ant Clemons. That special will be live-streamed at many of the aforementioned sources, as well as Facebook, Twitter, Twitch, Amazon Prime Video and more. View the full article
  5. Researchers at MIT have developed a new method for growing plant tissues in a lab – sort of like how companies and researchers are approaching lab-grown meat. The process would be able to produce wood and fibre in a lab environment, and researchers have already demonstrated how it works in concept by growing simple structures using cells harvested from zinnia leaves. This work is still in its very early stages, but the potential applications of lab-grown plant material are significant, and include possibilities in both agriculture and in ruction materials. While traditional agricultural is much less ecologically damaging when compared to animal farming, it can still have a significant impact and cost, and it takes a lot of resources to maintain. Not to mention that even small environmental changes can have a significant effect on crop yield. Forestry, meanwhile, has much more obvious negative environmental impacts. If the work of these researchers can eventually be used to create a way to produce lab-grown wood for use in construction and fabrication, in a way that’s scalable and efficient, then there’s tremendous potential in terms of reducing the impact of forestry globally. Eventually, the team even theorizes you could coax the growth of plant-based materials into specific target shapes, so you could also do some of the manufacturing in the lab, by growing a wood table directly for instance. There’s still a long way to go from what the researchers have achieved. They’ve only grown materials on a very small scale, and will look to figure out ways to grow plant-based materials with different final properties as one challenge. They’ll also need to overcome significant barriers when it comes to scaling efficiencies, but they are working on solutions that could address some of these difficulties. Lab-grown meat is still in its infancy, and lab-grown plant material is even more nascent. But it has tremendous potential, even if it takes a long time to get there. View the full article
  6. After six years of losses, LG might finally call it quits. On Wednesday, LG CEO Kwon Bong-seok sent a message to company staff saying LG's smartphone division has to change, The Korea Herald reported. And according to an unnamed LG official, this could mean withdrawal from the smartphone business, as well as selling or downsizing the company's mobile division. “Since the competition in the global market for mobile devices is getting fiercer, it is about time for LG to make a cold judgment and the best choice," the official told the outlet. Bong-seok told the staff that, regardless of the choice LG makes regarding the smartphone division, there will be no layoffs. Read more... More about Lg, Tech, and SmartphonesView the full article
  7. The day has finally come. On Wednesday morning, Donald Trump departed the White House for the final time as president, and in an unexpected twist he left something behind: a note for incoming president Joe Biden. In the days leading up to Biden's inauguration many speculated that Trump would not be following the longstanding tradition of writing a note for the incoming president. However, the White House confirmed that both Trump and VP Mike Pence left notes for Biden and Kamala Harris before leaving the White House on Wednesday. The contents of Trump's note are not yet known, but the Twitter memes have already begun. There's always a chance that Trump had a last minute change of heart and decided to pen a genuine, pleasant note to the Bidens. But based off of everything we've seen from Trump these last four years the "note" could also just be his giant signature written in Sharpie on a blank piece of paper, an insult, or perhaps a repeat of his parting quote to the American people: "Have a good life."

  8. Earlier this week, news outlets reported that Snoop Dogg had been secretly lobbying the White House on behalf of his friend, Death Row Records co-founder Michael "Harry-O" Harris to grant him a pardon. After successfully persuading the outgoing Trump administration, Harry-O''s sentence for attempted murder and cocaine trafficking has officially been granted clemency. Although previously an outward critic of Donald Trump, Snoop praised the administration for pardoning Harris in a Zoom call with prison reform advocates. In the conversation with Alice Johnson and Weldon Angelos, who both previously received pardons from Trump, the 49-year-old California-raised rapper commended Trump, saying "That’s great work for the president and his team on the way out." He added, "They did some great work while they was in there and they did some great work on their way out. Let them know that I love what they did.” Bennett Raglin/Getty Images for Strong Outdoor Snoop continued, “It is amazing what the work of God can actually bring to life to make people understand that there is a God.” The rapper learned his friend would be released from prison after Johnson announced, “I just got a call from the White House and Harry-O is getting clemency. He’s coming home, brother!” After hearing the news Snoop exclaimed, “God is good!” Andrew H. Walker/Getty Images Michael "Harry-O" Harris was arrested in 1988 and convicted of murder, cocaine trafficking, and attempted kidnapping. He was originally slated for release in June 2028.

  9. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have never been the most private of people. For basically the entirety of her adult life, Kim Kardashian has allowed the world to watch her career, relationships, and family life play out on camera on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Her husband Kanye West has made sporadic appearances on the show, also letting the world hear his inner thoughts through Twitter rants and his music. The couple has seemingly been having a rough go at things recently, with many sources claiming that they could be looking into getting a divorce. Those reports have not been confirmed by Kim, Kanye, or any member of their immediate family. This week, it was reported that they "completely" stopped going to marriage counseling, with Kanye reportedly opting to speak with divorce lawyers in the coming days. The latest update on this unraveling story appears to involve the production of the final season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, coming via Page Six and claiming that their relationship problems will be a core component of the last season. Lars Niki/Getty Images "The Kardashians intend to go out with a bang. They’ve filmed Kim discussing her marriage problems. But everybody involved is on a nondisclosure agreement, because the finale won’t screen until later in 2021," said a reported source to the publication. Other sources have told Page Six that Kim and Kanye are discussing settlements regarding split finances and properties. Somebody holler "we want prenup" one time on Kanye's behalf. On Kanye's side, the rapper reportedly "understands Kim’s side has to spin that she is sick of him. In reality, he’s been sick of being involved with [the] Kardashians for a long while. Especially her mother, who looms large in all big decisions she makes." Eugene Gologursky/Getty Images Despite that, West reportedly "seems to be enjoying the brouhaha surrounding his divorce. He is quite familiar with what the Kardashian public relations machine is capable of, and thinks it’s funny that her team is blaming his presidential run on the marriage disintegration." The twentieth and final season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians will air later this year. [via] View the full article
  10. Fyllo has acquired DataOwl, a company offering marketing and loyalty tools for cannabis retailers. Fyllo said it already works with 320 cannabis retailers across 25 states (plus Puerto Rico and Jamaica). According to Chief Marketing Officer Conrad Lisco, this acquisition allows the company to offer the industry’s “first end-to-end marketing solution,” combining consumer data, digital advertising, regulatory compliance (thanks to Fyllo’s acquisition of CannaRegs last year) and, through DataOwl, CRM and loyalty tied into a business’ point-of-sale system. As an example, founder and CEO Chad Bronstein (previously the chief revenue officer at digital marketing company Amobee) said that retailers will be able to use the Fyllo platform to send promotional texts to regular customers while, crucially, ensuring that those campaigns are fully in compliance with state and local regulations. He added that eventually, the platform could be used beyond cannabis, in other regulated industries. “Beauty, gambling, etc. — the same things need to happen in every regulated industry, they would all benefit from loyalty and compliance automation,” Bronstein said. In addition, he argued that mainstream brands are increasingly interested in using data around cannabis and CBD consumers, as borne out in a Forrester study commissioned by Fyllo. Lisco said this acquisition comes at a crucial time for the cannabis industry, with dispensaries classified as essential businesses in many states, as well as continuing momentum behind marijuana legalization. “In 2020, cannabis came of age,” he said. “We would say it went form illicit to essential in 10 months … 2021 is really about watching endemic [marijuana] brands try to scale, so that they can capitalize on the explosive growth. They’ve historically been excluded from the kinds of integrated marketing capabilities that other non-endemic [mainstream] brands get to use when go to market.” Bronstein said Fyllo aims to bring those capabilities to marijuana brands, first by bringing the its compliance capabilities into the DataOwl product. The company also aims to create a national cannabis loyalty platform, allowing a marijuana retailer in one state to easily expand its marketing capabilities into other states in a compliant fashion. The financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. DataOwl co-founders Dan Hirsch and Vartan Arabyan are joining Fyllo, as is the rest of their team, bringing the company’s total headcount to 110. “By integrating with Fyllo, DataOwl’s solutions will reach the widest possible audience via the industry’s most innovative marketing platform,” Hirsch said in a statement.

  11. Kodak Black and Lil Wayne are likely feeling pretty gleeful this morning because, in a late-night pardoning spree, President Donald Trump granted clemency to both high-profile rappers. There had been rumors circulating for the last several days about how Trump planned to use his final full day in office to hand out approximately one hundred pardons, but he ended up surpassing that number, granting clemency or pardoning Wayne, Kodak, Steve Bannon, Kwame Kilpatrick, and 140 others. Unfortunately for "Tiger King" Joe Exotic, who had a limo waiting for him outside the prison, he was ultimately not pardoned. Of course, given the celebrity of Kodak and Wayne, the internet was pretty ecstatic to hear the news about them being punished to a lesser degree. Both of their names began immediately trending on Twitter with reactions pouring in from all corners. Christopher Polk/Getty Images People are sharing their favorite Kodak Black moments to celebrate his upcoming freedom, hoping that the 23-year-old can finally enjoy a stretch of his career where he's not incarcerated. As for Lil Wayne, the reaction is fairly mixed, given the rapper's endorsement of Trump for President, which left a sour taste in people's mouths. It's worth noting that the two rappers were granted clemency, and not pardoned outright. A pardon would indicate forgiveness for a specific crime, while clemency reduces the penalty for that crime without clearing your criminal record. We will keep you posted as further information is released regarding when Kodak Black will be released from prison, as well as Lil Wayne's situation. Check out some of the best reactions below.

  12. SpaceX has launched its 17th batch of Starlink satellites during its first mission of 2021, using a Falcon 9 rocket that was flying for the eighth time, and that landed again, recording a record for its reusability program. This puts the total Starlink constellation size at almost 1,000, as the company has expanded its beta access program for the service to the UK and Canada, with a first deployment in the latter company serving a rural First Nations community in a remote part of the province of Ontario. The launch took off from Florida at 8:02 AM EST (5:02 AM PST), with delivery of the satellites following as planned at around an hour after lift-off. The booster on this launch flew seven times previously, as mentioned – including just in December when it was used to delivery a SiriusXM satellite to orbit to support that company’s satellite radio network. Today’s launch was also notable because it included a landing attempt in so-called “envelope expansion” conditions, which means that the winds in the landing zone where SpaceX’s drone recovery ship was stationed at sea actually exceeded the company’s previously-defined safety window for making a landing attempt. As a result of today’s success, SpaceX will likely now have higher tolerances for wind speeds in order to attempt recovery, which should translate to fewer cancellations of launches based on weather conditions in the landing zone.

  16. A four-year antitrust investigation into PC games geo-blocking in the European Union by distribution platform Valve and five games publishers has led to fines totalling €7.8 million (~$9.4M) after the Commission confirmed today that the bloc’s rules had been breached. The geo-blocking practices investigated since 2017 concerned around 100 PC video games of different genres, including sports, simulation and action games. In addition to Valve — which has been fined just over €1.6M — the five sanctioned games publishers are: Bandai Namco (fined €340k), Capcom (€396k), Focus Home (€2.8M), Koch Media (€977k) and ZeniMax (€1.6M). The Commission said the fines were reduced by between 10% and 15% owing to cooperation from the companies, with the exception of Valve who it said chose not to cooperate (a “prohibition Decision” rather than a fine reduction was applied in its case). Valve has been contacted for comment. The antitrust investigation begun in February 2017, with a formal statement of objections issued just over two years later when the Commission accused the companies of “entering into bilateral agreements to prevent consumers from purchasing and using PC video games acquired elsewhere than in their country of residence” in contravention of EU rules. The mechanisms used by the companies to prevent certain cross-border sales of certain PC games were geo-blocked Steam activation keys and bilateral licensing and distribution agreements to restrict certain cross-border sales. EU lawmakers has now found that these business practices partitioned certain European markets according to national borders — denying regional consumers the benefits of the EU’s Digital Single Market to shop around for the best offer. Commenting in a statement, EVP Margrethe Vestager, who heads up competition policy for the bloc, said: “Today’s sanctions against the ‘geo-blocking’ practices of Valve and five PC video game publishers serve as a reminder that under EU competition law, companies are prohibited from contractually restricting cross-border sales. Such practices deprive European consumers of the benefits of the EU Digital Single Market and of the opportunity to shop around for the most suitable offer in the EU.”. According to the Commission’s investigation, geo-blocking of Steam activation keys prevented activation of certain of the five games’ publishers titles outside of Czechia, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. It said agreements between the companies to geo-block activation keys had lasted between one and five years and were found to have been implemented at various times between September 2010 and October 2015. While four of the games publishers (not Capcom) were found to have entered into licensing and distribution agreements with various PC games distributors (not Value) in the European Economic Area (EEA) which contained clauses which restricted cross-border sales of the affected titles within the EEA, including the aforementioned Central and Eastern European countries. The Commission said these agreements lasted generally longer (“between three and 11 years”), and were implemented at different times between March 2007 and November 2018. Since the investigation started, EU lawmakers have passed a regulation against unjustified geo-blocking. Although the legislation only applies to PC video games distributed on CDs or DVDs, not to downloads. So games are only partially covered. A Commission review of how the geo-blocking regulation is operating, published last November, discussed a possible extension of its scope in a range of areas, including for games. However it did not make a strong case for that change. (It also found demand for cross-border access to games (and software generally) relatively low vs other content services.) But while games distributed via digital downloads look set to remain outside the scope of the EU’s unjustified geo-blocking regulation, the fines against Valve et al show that geo-blocking can still be a legal minefield as contractual agreements to restrict cross-border sales run counter to the bloc’s antitrust rules. The specific breaches are of Article 101 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) and Article 53 of the Agreement on the European Economic Area which prohibit agreements between companies that prevent, restrict or distort competition within the EU’s Single Market, per the Commission.

  17. Enlarge / CentOS used to be the preferred way to get RHEL compatibility at no cost. CentOS is gone now—but Red Hat is extending no-cost options for RHEL further than ever before. (credit: Red Hat / DFCisneros) Last month, Red Hat caused a lot of consternation in the enthusiast and small business Linux world when it announced the discontinuation of CentOS Linux. Long-standing tradition—and ambiguity in Red Hat's posted terms—led users to believe that CentOS 8 would be available until 2029, just like the RHEL 8 it was based on. Red Hat's early termination of CentOS 8 in 2021 cut eight of those 10 years away, leaving thousands of users stranded. CentOS Stream Red Hat's December announcement of CentOS Stream—which it initially billed as a "replacement" for CentOS Linux—left many users confused about its role in the updated Red Hat ecosystem. This week, Red Hat clarifies the broad strokes as follows: Read 5 remaining paragraphs | Comments View the full article
  18. Rocket Lab has launched its 18th mission, and the first of 2021, as of 8:26 PM NZT (2:30 AM EST). The ‘Another One Leaves The Crust’ mission took off from Rocket Lab’s Launch Complex 1 on the Mahia Peninsula in New Zealand, and flew a single communications microsatellite on behalf of client OHB Group, a satellite manufacturer based in Europe with facilities in Germany, Sweden and the Czech Republic. Rocket Lab’s launches often feature payloads from more than one customer on the same Electron launch vehicle, but this dedicated payload launch is an example of how the flexibility of its smaller rocket can serve customers even for single small satellite missions. The rocket successfully delivered its payload as intended shortly following take-off. While Rocket Lab has been developing and testing a booster stage recovery process to help it re-use part of its launch vehicles on subsequent flights, this particular mission did not include a recovery attempt. The company has had significant success with that development process however, and recovered its first booster last year. Sometime this year, it’s expected to attempt a recovery that includes a mid-air catch of the returning first stage via helicopter. View the full article

  20. Donald Trump is on his way out of the White House, but that didn't stop him from pardoning 73 people and commuting the sentences of another 70 people on the last day of his presidency. One name on that list is Anthony Levandowski, who was sentenced to 18 months in prison for stealing trade secrets from the Google-owned, self-driving car company Waymo. Levandowski was a co-founder of Google's self-driving car division before leaving the tech giant in 2016 to start a self-driving truck company called Otto. That company was subsequently acquired by Uber, and Waymo filed a lawsuit alleging that their confidential information ended up in the hands of Uber. Levandowski was looking at a 10-year sentence, but he eventually pleaded guilty to trade secret theft, thus reducing his prison sentence. The start of his sentence was ultimately delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Read more... More about Donald Trump, Levandowski, Tech, and PoliticsView the full article
  21. On a cold, wintry evening in January, I found myself aimlessly flicking through channels in search of something to occupy myself with. I'd already binged Bridgerton, watched Normal People for the third time, and was on my fourth rewatch of Schitt's Creek. Mercifully, a new series of Grand Designs had come along, right in time for the UK's third national lockdown. Like many people, I've recently reached quite a low ebb in my mental wellbeing and I've been trying to find joy in daily life — be it by leaving the house to stomp around the muddy local park, or cooking up a tasty storm in my kitchen.

  22. Trevor Noah has been away over the Christmas break, but on Tuesday he returned to our screens — and his comeback monologue packed a pretty serious punch. Over the course of seven minutes the Daily Show host recapped the pro-Trump Capitol riot which left five dead (including a police officer) and many more under FBI investigation, before unpacking the fallout and calling "bullshit" on Fox News, Republicans, and social media companies alike. "Ah, I get it now," says Noah in the clip above, after playing a montage of Fox hosts excusing the behaviour of the violent mob that stormed the Capitol. "These people weren't 'creepy bloggers,' they were 'solid' law-abiding Americans. And nobody is allowed to kill cops except for the people who respect cops. They can do whatever they want.

  24. HiPeople, a HR tech startup based in Berlin that wants to automate the reference checking process, has raised $3 million in seed funding. Leading the round is Mattias Ljungman’s Moonfire, with participation from Capnamic Ventures, and Cherry Ventures. It follows a $1.1 million pre-seed in late 2019. Notably, the seed round was closed fully remote, without any in-person meetings. “Just like the hiring processes of HiPeople’s clients,” founders Jakob Gillmann and Sebastian Schüller told me in an email. HiPeople says the investment will be used to support growth so that more recruiters can hire remotely using automated reference checks. Longer term, the company is developing a candidate analytics platform to provide rich data and insights on each candidate and enable what it frames as “data-driven” hiring. “Abstractly-speaking HiPeople is in the talent insights business,” say Gillmann and Schüller. “It’s mission is to enable better hiring by automatically collecting and analyzing talent data, and providing rich insights. HiPeople currently solves this by automating candidate reference checks from request, to collection, and analysis. This allows companies to extend the information they have on a candidate without additional manual work”. The idea behind the software-as-a-service is that HiPeople’s approach creates a seamless user experience for the recruiter, and “verified, in-depth reference checks they can trust”. As a result, the startup claims that its users on average collect 2x the amount of references on a candidate, in 50% of the time. “Traditionally, reference checks are underutilized due to the highly manual process, and often only exclusively used for executive hiring. HiPeople dusts off reference checks, and enables rich talent insights by rethinking how they are done,” says HiPeople’s founders. HiPeople’s customers span fast growing startups to tech scale-ups and more established upper mid-market companies. For example, process mining company Celonis, which doubled its workforce in the last 12 months to 1,200 employees globally, uses HiPeople to improve hiring quality for roles in San Francisco, Munich and Tokyo. “By programmatically conducting reference checks the company hires talent based on verified insights on topics like areas of improvement, skills, teamwork style, or work values,” explains HiPeople. Adds Moonfire’s Mattias Ljungman: “Workflow automation of repetitive processes, and insights on the candidate that go beyond the limitations of the CV, are a clear pain for anybody in recruiting. The Covid-influenced reality of remote work, hence remote hiring practices, has increased the complexity of finding the right talent. HiPeople created a way to enable anybody who is hiring to make better decisions, whilst improving processes and increasing hiring velocity”. Gillmann and Schüller tell me that in Europe, HiPeople mainly competes with the existing infrastructure and processes recruiters use to manually conduct references checks. In the U.S., companies like Xref or Crosschq are more direct competitors in terms of automating reference checks. View the full article
