Enlarge (credit: California Medical Cannabis Initiative ) BOSTONStacy Gruber of Harvard Medical School laid out the numbers: 28 states and the District of Columbia have medical marijuana laws, 17 others allow some cannabis-based products, and eight states now allow recreational use. The US has turned into a grand experiment on the medicinal use of pot, even as the federal government's classification of the drug makes it extremely difficult to do good research on it. But that doesn't mean research isn't getting done. Gruber and two other researchers described what they're learning about medicinal marijuana at the meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. “This is the direction we’re headed," Gruber said, "and it’s good to be prepared.” Canadian vigilance Mark Ware of McGill University had a term for one way of tracking the effect of pot use: pharmacovigilance.

The U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights' representative in Libya, Claudio Cordone, says each defendant was limited to two witnesses. Speaking by telephone from Doha, he says the trial missed the opportunity to provide an historical record of the conduct of the defendants and the regime during the revolution. "Had the evidence been produced in court and given, in particular, that the trial was broadcast live — which is actually a welcome development — it would have given an opportunity for Libyans and everybody else to hear what exactly had happened or what, at least, these people were being accused of. But that, unfortunately, did not take place," Cordone said. Libya does not allow for a full appeal, but only cassation — that is, a review of certain points of law. Nine of the defendants were given the death penalty, including Saif al-Islam Gadhafi, who was tried in absentia and sentenced in July 2015.

A rough week for Milo Yiannopoulos just got worse. The noted alt-right internet troll announced on Tuesday that he has resigned from Breitbart, where he had been a senior editor and worked on the website's tech coverage. The news comes a day after book publisher Simon & Schuster dropped Yiannopoulos following outcry over the discovery of a video in which he defended sexual relationships between men and young boys. "I would be wrong to allow my poor choice of words to detract from my colleagues' important reporting, so today I am resigning from Breitbart, effective immediately. This decision is mine alone," he wrote in a statement. Read more... More about Business , Politics , Breitbart , Milo Yiannopoulos , and Business

After taking the posters down, the teachers were initially allowed to put them up again. But the administration did some further investigation online and determined that the posters could be seen as political. The school does not allow teachers to put up political posters in their classrooms unless its part of a curriculum and they represent both sides, Gaddis said. (The story was first reported by the Carroll County Times .) President Donald Trump took office vowing to crack down on immigration and ban Muslims from traveling to the United States, promises that he has already tried to fulfill . His administration is also stacked with anti-immigration hard-liners , and his campaign won early support from prominent white nationalists, whom Trump has unconvincingly sought to disavow . The art recognizes groups that may feel marginalized under the Trump administration.

His threatened deportation of undocumented migrants ― anyone who entered the United States unlawfully would qualify ― could uproot millions of people with deep family and community ties. And he is substantially cutting back on the procedures that allow migrants to cite those ties in an effort to avoid deportation. He has nominated a Supreme Court justice who espouses a concept of religious liberty that has been used to justify discrimination against gays and lesbians. Womens access to abortion and basic health services is in jeopardy. People in ill health fear loss of their newly won health insurance. And though he now appears to have backed away, the president has casually toyed with resuming torture. Yes, Trump won the Electoral College and thus the presidency. Yes, millions of people who felt government was not serving them voted for a man who vowed to shake things up.

Enlarge (credit: Qualcomm) Last year around Mobile World Congress, Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon X16 , billed as the company's first "gigabit" LTE modem. Most of you still don't have an X16 in your phones, though that will change in the next few months with the imminent arrival of the Snapdragon 835 processor and the flagship phones that use it. But Qualcomm has already moved on to the next thing, namely its new Snapdragon X20 modem—this chip bumps the maximum theoretical download speed from the X16's 1.0Gbps to 1.2Gbps, but more importantly it makes those gigabit speeds easier to actually hit. The X20 hits those (at this point, still mostly theoretical) gigabit speeds by using many of the same tricks as the X16. Carrier aggregation and 4×4 MIMO antennas allow up to 12 streams of data to be received using between three and five 20MHz chunks of spectrum, up from 10 streams across three or four 20MHz chunks of spectrum in the X16.

“Over 20 million will lose coverage and with all due respect, sir, you’re the man who talked about the death panels. You’re going to create one great big death panel in this country for people can’t afford to get insurance.” Back in 2009, Grassley accused Democrats of crafting legislation that would allow the government to “decide when to pull the plug on grandma.” That fed into fears of what Sarah Palin and others calleddeath panels.” There’s no such thing in the health law, but the line inflamed fears of rationing and ignited the intense opposition to Obamacare that remains to this day. On Tuesday, Grassley tried to reassure the crowd that packed the community hall, saying that three of the four main GOP health care plans circulating on Capitol Hill would preserve Obamacare’s most popular provisions: pre-existing condition protections, the prohibition on lifetime limits and the ability of young adults to stay on their parentshealth care plans.

By then, BMW expects to be in position to roll out its iNext autonomous vehicle. The goal is to source data from a range of different vehicle manufacturers, in order to more quickly and accurately build anonymized real-time mapping data that can serve to inform autonomous driving systems more generally, which should in theory lead to safer roads. “This announcement demonstrates that our partnership is rapidly bringing innovation to market to allow customers to benefit from the latest technology,” said Klaus Fröhlich, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Development . “At a strategic level, this announcement makes it clear how our cooperation with Mobileye leverages our investment stake in HERE. The data of future BMW vehicles will enrich the quality of maps and services for everyone. Furthermore, this represents a significant step towards introducing the BMW iNEXT with its features of highly automated driving in 2021 as well as creating a leading ecosystem around HERE’s Open Location Platform leveraged by swarm data from millions of vehicles across the world.

McAfee Security Power Booster: An effective, free antivirus tool with a good set of additional features Price when reviewed: Free; premium subscription £2.49/mth, £29.99/yr McAfee Security is a rather weird proposition: the free app gives you a strong feature set, but upgrading to an expensive premium licence adds very little of substance. Subscribers get access to telephone support and a cloud backup function for photos and other media files; that latter feature might sound useful, but it’s limited to a miserly 2GB. The overall package is impressive. You can PIN-protect as many apps as you want, and set up secure profiles in which certain apps dont appear. There’s web protection for Chrome, and the usual anti-theft measures that allow you to track your phone over the internet or via SMS. You can also remotely take a photo, and receive an alert if a different SIM is inserted into your phone; you can even set up a PIN that makes it impossible for a thief to uninstall McAfee without resetting the phone.
