How do we stop cutting-edge technology falling into the wrong hands?

Today 05:09 GMT

There are ways to rationalise all this: you can’t stop the march of progress; better that we have the technology than the other side; supporting the military is a generally a good thing to do.

We’re living in an age where new technology offers gigantic upsides – artificial intelligence has the potential to diagnose cancer, catch serial killers and reduce prison populations. But in an age where technology is advancing so rapidly, where algorithms designed for one purpose can be quickly picked up and used for another – the issue of where responsibility lies has been brought sharply into focus.

Parenting is hard work, but don't get discouraged -- remember this

Today 05:09 GMT

So, why would anyone take parenting advice from me? I’ve spent the last 11 years leading one of the world’s largest young adult ministries, and it has given me a unique view into the results of other parents’ parenting.

I have interacted with tens of thousands of twentysomethings who are fresh out of the nest, and I’ve seen the impact various parenting styles make on young adults. I’ve closely observed some extraordinary kids and sibling groups and have had the privilege of learning from their parents’ examples.

Menteng: Presidential Prestige in the Heart of Indonesia’s Capital Jakarta

Today 05:09 GMT

Located in the heart of the Indonesian capital, Menteng is an upscale subdistrict of the Central Jakarta municipality and home to some of the best addresses in the sprawling metropolis.

Yes, this meal is supposed to make you feel uncomfortable

Today 09:00 GMT

The theme of this evening's meal is radical honesty, and 42 people sit listening with some of the innermost pieces of themselves exposed: written proclamations of their biggest failures, job insecurities, and societal frustrations immortalized in front of them.

I'm inspecting the inside of a convection oven when the event manager asks this seemingly benign question from across the room. She's knee-deep in event planning knickknacks — picture frames, wire hangers, misfit chairs — and barely paying attention; just trying to make friendly conversation.

Steve Doocy: What happened when my wife started to serve our kids fish for breakfast

Today 05:09 GMT

Back when our kids were still living at home, my wife Kathy heard an interview on the radio with a single-parent mother whose three kids had all received perfect SAT scores and had been admitted to Ivy League schools.

They sat and stared at it until our youngest, Sally stared crying, then Mary blurted out, “If we have to eat fish for breakfast, I don't want to go to college!” As they got in the car, Kathy handed each of them an Eggo, so nobody would question why they were hangry at school.

How California became Trump's toughest foe

Today 09:00 GMT

Last month, Brown signed a bill moving the presidential primary up to March, ahead of all but four states, which should dramatically expand California's influence over both parties' nominations.

In addition, California sued to prevent Trump's repeal of the program that protects "DREAMers" who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, and federal courts have temporarily blocked Trump's repeal. California's status as a "sanctuary" state was demonstrated in February when Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf posted a tweet alerting residents of an upcoming immigration sweep.

Hysterical surrealism A pop culture for our age of economic insecurity

Today 09:00 GMT

Hysterical surrealism, like all surrealism, provides a visual and narrative way out for us metaphorically, through its characters, people who are otherwise trapped.

Today’s hysterical surrealist culture about inequality is different from these classics, partially because debt-laden characters are entirely ordinary and don’t fit the old debt-as-sin trope – they aren’t the gamblers, “fallen women”, or entitled orchard owners we might have encountered in cultural productions of the past.
