Apparently the Model S didn’t brake either.The report raises further questions about the effectiveness of Tesla’s system, which was in operation before several other crashes including two fatalities in Florida and one in Silicon Valley. Tesla warns drivers that the system is not fully autonomous and drivers must be ready to intervene.The NTSB report didn’t state a cause of the crash. The agency will issue a final report Wednesday.The Associated Press read more

Nintendo aware of Switch JoyCon drifting issues that spurred lawsuit

See It Mentioned Above Nintendo Switch (Gray) Amazon Review • Nintendo Switch review: Pure fun on a big-screen TV or on the go 1 Walmart Here’s more— Daniel Jacques (@NemisisPlays) July 14, 2019 Gaming Culturecenter_img Nintendo $299 Nintendo of America says it’s aware of the Joy-Con drift issue. “At Nintendo, we take great pride in creating quality products and we are continuously making improvements to them,” a company representative said in an emailed statement Tuesday. “We want our consumers to have fun with Nintendo Switch, and if anything falls short of this goal we always encourage them to visit so we can help.”On the official Nintendo support forums, there are dozens of threads from owners experiencing drifting on their Joy-Cons. One moderator advised users to follow the steps on how to fix Joy-Con drift on the company’s support page. An internal memo says Nintendo reportedly advised customer representatives to offer free repairs for malfunctioning Joy-Cons and give refunds to those who paid a service fee to have them fixed. A partner with the law firm behind the lawsuit says Switch owners have high expectations for Nintendo products. “This drift issue simply prevents consumers from playing games in the way they are supposed to be able to on this device,” Benjamin F. Johns said Tuesday. “It is extremely frustrating and I can understand why so many people are upset. We look forward to prosecuting this case.”The firm has a signup page for Nintendo Switch owners who are experiencing similar problems with their Joy-Cons. They’re seeking class-action status for the case, which was filed in the US District Court for the Western District of Washington in Seattle.Originally published July 22.Update, July 23: Adds comments from Nintendo and the law firm. Update, July 24: Adds repair details.  Nintendo Switch Lite first impressions Tags $299 See It News • Are you a Nintendo Switch docker or hander?

One is the more portable Switch Lite and the other is a new version of the original console with a longer battery life. Some current Switch owners, however, aren’t happy with the system’s controller and an issue known as “drifting,” which led to a lawsuit. A leaked memo from Nintendo says it will reportedly fix “drifting” Joy-Cons for free. Law firm Chimicles Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith on Friday filed a lawsuit against Nintendo of America over Joy-Con “drifting.” The complaint alleges that Nintendo marketed and sold the Switch and Joy-Con controllers despite being “aware of the defect through online consumer complaints.”Some Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons apparently don’t return to center properly thus creating a constant input of a particular direction, or drifting. One thread on the Nintendo Switch subreddit had dozens of console owners complaining about the problem. One user mentioned that six of their eight Joy-Cons had the issue.  See Itlast_img read more

Amid Reports of Starrs Firing Baylor Says Expect Announcement Soon

first_imgMarjorie Kamys CoteraPresident and chancellor of Baylor University Ken Starr during the Higher Education Symposium in Waco, Texas*Editor’s note: This story has been updated with additional comment from Baylor.Amid reports that Kenneth Starr, Baylor University’s high-profile president, was fired this morning over a scandal related to the university’s response to sexual assault allegations against football players, university officials said they expect to announce the results of an internal inquiry by June 3. They declined to directly address Starr’s future.At least two outlets, a Texas Longhorn fansite and a local television station, are already reporting that Starr has been fired. Sources connected to the university have been unable to confirm or deny those reports. Baylor, meanwhile, said it will “not respond to rumors, speculation or reports based on unnamed sources.”Later, a university spokeswoman sent out another statement: “Ken Starr is president and chancellor of Baylor University.”If Starr is removed, it will represent a stunning turn of events for a president who — until very recently — was beloved on campus and credited for raising Baylor’s academic rankings and national prominence.The scandal that has engulfed his tenure erupted around the start of the last football season, when defensive end Sam Ukwuachu was convicted of raping a fellow student. Testimony during the trial indicated that the university investigated the case but failed to take action against Ukwuachu. The victim, meanwhile, eventually transferred from the university.Criticism of the university’s handling of other cases soon followed, including that of former linebacker Tevin Elliot, who was convicted of sexual assault in 2012.Starr, a lawyer and judge in his previous career who became famous for his aggressive investigation into alleged sexual transgressions by President Bill Clinton, has been president of Baylor since 2010. Since then, the university has improved in the classroom, in U.S. News and World Report rankings, and in its fundraising. The football team has also enjoyed unprecedented success; Baylor opened a new stadium in 2014, to the tune of $266 million.The case has raised questions about the job status of Starr and other prominent university leaders, including football coach Art Briles, who has drawn fire for allowing athletes to play or practice for the team while under investigation for sexual assault.It’s unclear what role Starr or Briles played in the investigations; the university hasn’t released the results of a report it commissioned into the matter. But federal law requires universities to conduct their own investigations into alleged sexual assaults by students and take punitive action if necessary. The burden of proof for such action is lower than in criminal court.Baylor has largely avoided commenting on any of the cases, citing student privacy laws. But in February, just hours before the Super Bowl, it announced an action plan to address sexual violence on campus, which included more prevention training for students and more counseling resources.“We know we can and must do a better job to confront interpersonal violence in our campus community,” Starr said at the time.This article originally appeared in The Texas Tribune at Sharelast_img read more

Australian state may stop religious schools from antigay discrimination

first_imgSix months after marriage equality there’s much to celebrate – and still much to doAustralia’s anti-gay marriage chief becomes a politician to challenge ‘rainbow left’ agendaFact check: What is Mike Pence’s record on LGBT rights?PINK NEWS- The state government is seeking legal advice on the issue.It is expected that same-sex marriage will be legalised following the plebsicite, and the LGBT community is seeking an anti-gay “loophole” to be closed.A letter to Western Australian Premier Mark McGowan sees LGBT rights advocates argue that the loophole should be closed saying it is being used to target LGBT+ students and teachers.“In other mainland States, exemptions for religious schools are often defined only to apply to staff members whose job has a specific religious purpose,” Same-Sex Parents Association spokeswoman Maxine Drake told the Western Australian.“WA’s extraordinary loophole for church schools is so wide and poorly written, it even allows students to be expelled if they have gay parents.”It gives examples, such as a 2015 case where a 7-year-old girl was removed from the Mandurah’s Foundation Christian College.Her gay father was told that she must never discuss his sexuality.“The principal of the school was noted as saying at that time, ‘If I’d known she had gay dads, I would never have enrolled her’,” the letter adds.Millions of voters have been returning their ballots for weeks in the country’s non-binding postal vote on LGBT rights.An incredible 78% of eligible Australians have cast their vote – a bigger turnout than in the UK’s Brexit referendum.The vote has no legal basis, however, and will merely inform MPs when the issue is permitted to go before Parliament.The deadline for returning ballots by post has now passed, meaning voters yet to have their say must return their survey in person.Voters can deliver forms to drop-off centres run by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), the organisation running the national same-sex marriage survey.Drop-off centres are open until 4.30pm across Australia, except Melbourne, which is closed for the Melbourne Cup public holiday.Polls predict that around 60% of the 12 million Australians who have voted have backed the Yes campaign.The gap between the two campaigns has narrowed in recent weeks, with previous polls putting Yes on as much as 66%.All public polls conducted since ballots were first issued have shown Yes in the lead, with LGBT activists expected to be victorious when the result is announced on 15 November.Speaking to Sky News, Tiernan Brady of the Equality Campaign said he believed equality campaigners have “confidently won the argument.“I think the Australian people have seen through it… I think the public have made their mind up.”However a victory in the national postal ballot might not mean any laws are changed in Australia.The ballot is only advisory, leaving decisions on whether to change marriage law to Australia’s government. Western Australia is considering whether to stop religious schools from being able to discriminate against LGBT+ people.As the ballots closed in a plebiscite on whether Australians should be about to enter same-sex marriages, the state faced questions about religious schools. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull supports same-sex marriage, but many in his right-wing government are opposed to the move.He has previously said that same-sex couples could be married by the end of the 2018 if the plebiscite is affirmative, but experts conclude this is unlikely.Hardline anti-LGBT MPs within the governing Liberal-National Coalition will not be conceding, even if the public gives a strong backing for equality.Instead, they will attempt to table a string of amendments to the eventual marriage bill.The government has indicated that it would give its backing to a backbench marriage equality bill if there is a clear victory for Yes.But a group of hardline conservative politicians are plotting a rebellion – and may provoke a split in PM Turnbull’s party if they are not granted a string of concessions.Anti-LGBT Senator Eric Abetz, a strong opponent of equal marriage and the government’s former Senate leader, this week said he would back amendments seeking “freedom to discriminate” loopholes, which equality activists say would undermine LGBT rights protections.Speaking to the West Australian, he said: “[The bill] is seriously inadequate, as parents, freedom of speech and religious freedom, along with conscientious objection, all need full protection.”The group could drown the legislation in amendments.According to the newspaper, sources say that between 60 and 100 amendments could be filed, which would stall progress on the issue.Senator Smith warned that Parliament should not allow the legislation to be passed if it is amended to undermine discrimination protections.He said: “If there is a Yes vote, it will be necessary for the opponents of marriage to detail their amendments.“This will provide a challenge to the Liberal Party because the community will not accept any winding back of Australia’s well-established anti-discrimination laws.”The Coalition, led by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, is deeply divided on equal marriage.The Nationals and a powerful right-wing faction of the Liberals – including prominent members of Turnbull’s Cabinet – are strongly opposed to equal marriage, while centrists and the youth wing of the Liberals are in favour of reform.The public vote was only called by Turnbull as a compromise between the two groups after MPs began openly discussing a leadership challenge or rebellion against him.However, punting the issue to the public does not mean that the rift has gone away, and the bill is likely to run into extreme difficulties in Parliament.Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us)last_img read more

Don Shooter shows health improvement Top Stories H&M CEO Karl-Johan Persson said the krona’s strength weighed on the result, while sales in local currencies increased by 5 percent.He said sales remained strong in Asia but that the overall revenue suffered due to the “continued challenging situation for the fashion retail industry” and bad weather in many of the company’s big markets.Persson added that H&M opened nearly 100 new stores in the second quarter, including its first in South America in Santiago de Chile, and continues to make long-term investments in its online sales.“Although most of these long-term investments have not yet generated revenues, we see them as wise and necessary – all in order to build an even stronger H&M,” Persson said. “There is great potential in the growing online market. We are looking forward to launching our online sales in the US in August.”H&M’s share price was up some 1.2 percent at 227.5 kronor in early trading on the Stockholm Stock Exchange.Founded in 1947, H&M has more than 2,900 stores in some 48 countries. In addition to H&M, the group includes the brands COS, Monki, Weekday and Cheap Monday, & Other Stories as well as H&M Home. It employs more than 100,000 people worldwide.
