C. at the capitol. Since the anti-war idea was something McCarthy was pushing heavily as part of his campaign, he was likely in the area during these protests and therefor, so were the Podestas. November 13th 1969 Anti-War Protest/March November 21st 1969 McCarthy types up a letter to a banker, the letter is addressed from the Senate in Washington D.C. Source John and Tony Podesta were helping him with his campaign so I’m assuming they followed McCarthy wherever he went. This I learned from the television show ‘Scandal’ where the volunteers followed the candidate around in every state to help with various activities: “In 1971, he [John Podesta] graduated from Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois , where he had served as a volunteer for the presidential candidacy of Eugene McCarthy .” “While studying at MIT in 1968, [Tony] Podesta left to work on the presidential campaign of Senator Eugene McCarthy , for whom he did field work and ran the scheduling advance operation in California and other states.

Bryce Alford came to the defense of former UCLA teammate Lonzo Ball as he prepared for the NBA draft. The guard discussed Ball and his father LaVar on Monday, via Bill Oram of the Southern California News Group: Alford was a senior this past season alongside the freshman Ball, helping the Bruins post a 31-5 record and reach the Sweet 16. Ball has received extra attention during the pre-draft process thanks in part to the antics of his father. "I don't think he falls past 2, but it's a concern in the back of everyone's mind," an Eastern Conference executive told Marc Berman of the New York Post . "The team will have to sit down with Lonzo and LaVar to set the groundwork. It will be interesting." On the court, Ball is one of the most talented prospects in the 2017 class, with the ability to run an offense and create for others. Off the court, his father's actions have raised questions, but Alford was willing to vouch for his former teammate.

The edited simplicity of the interior presents a statement of luxury through less. Only once our compulsory walk around is completed does Marc Girard relax to share beyond rote remarks, revealing an interesting detail harbored deep in memory only after we chit-chat about design outside of the realm of the automotive. I have a long interest in architecture. So, you could say the [Concept 8 Series] design found some influence from a field trip our team took two years. You're from Los Angeles...so you know about the Salk Institute in San Diego, right? leaning in every so slightly in anticipation of affirmation.

While some researchers attempt to build artificial intelligences (AI) that can solve problems that humans might not have even thought of yet, others are focused on creating ones that do something most of us take for granted: pick things up. For a robot, knowing how to properly grasp and lift an object is no easy task. To address this issue, researchers at the University of California, Berkeley , trained a deep learning system on a cloud-based data set of more than a thousand objects, exposing it to each one's 3D shape and appearance, as well of the physics of grasping it. Afterward, they tested their system using physical objects that weren't included in its digital training set. When the system thought it had a better than 50 percent chance of successfully picking up a new object, it was actually able to do it 98 percent of the time — all without having trained on any objects outside of the virtual world.

.. and sends a very positive message to the U.K. that solar has a strong place in the decarbonization of the U.K. energy sector,” Paul Barwell, chief executive of the Solar Trade Association , pointed out. As Barwell noted, this marks the first time solar panels generated more electricity in the U.K. than nuclear plants. Natural gas and coal remain the country's top suppliers of electricity, however. Stacking up on Renewables This milestone is obviously a win for renewables and a sign that nations are moving toward cleaner energy sources. Click to View Full Infographic Solar power remains the top bet among many , including the United States, where solar panels accounted for 60 percent of California's record-breaking clean energy usage in March . Expect trends similar to these to continue in the coming months, as several other places pledge to switch to renewables sooner than later.

It can no longer serve to settle disputes. It can no longer concern the great powers alone. For a nuclear disaster, spread by wind and water and fear, could well engulf the great and the small, the rich and the poor, the committed and the uncommitted alike. Mankind must put an end to war—or war will put an end to mankind. Address at the University of California at Berkeley March 23, 1962 We may be proud as a nation of our record in scientific achievement—but at the same time we must be impressed by the interdependence of all knowledge. I am certain that every scholar and scientist here today would agree that his own work has benefited immeasurably from the work of the men and women in other countries. The prospect of a partnership with Soviet scientists in the exploration of space opens up exciting prospects of collaboration in other areas of learning.
