In a public hearing at the European Parliament on Wednesday (5 September), two US attorneys said they were confident they would win further legal cases against Monsanto, following a landmark San Francisco trial in August that ordered the US company to pay plaintiff Dwayne Johnson $289 million in damages. “The judge wouldn’t let us display 80% of the documents we have that show how Monsanto manipulated science, helped to ghostwrite studies and suppressed carcinogenicity findings of Roundup and glyphosate. And the jury still voted unanimously against Monsanto,” said attorney Robert F. Kennedy, who addressed the Parliament together with Michael L. Baum. Referring to the thousand other similar legal cases pending in the US, he added that he was optimistic it will be possible to show more of these documents, meaning that chances are good to see future verdicts being voted in favour of the plaintiffs. “I think Monsanto now has a headache, and a headache that is … [Read more...] about US lawyers confident to win more Glyphosate-related legal cases against Monsanto

Produced by Jonathan Leach and Paul LaRosa On June 10, 2008, Army nurse Holley James Wimunc did not show up for work at the maternity ward she worked in at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Friends rushed to her apartment where they found the remnants of a fire, but no sign of Holley. The crime scene was ominous: knives were missing from the kitchen and a section of carpet in her bedroom had been cut out and removed. Complete coverage: "48 Hours: NCIS" The investigation by NCIS would uncover a maze of evidence that included a jealous ex-girlfriend who had resurfaced; a lying but loyal Marine willing to help a wartime buddy; and a husband with a history of domestic violence.

London’s 45,000 Uber drivers can breathe a sigh of relief after a judge in London granted the ride-hailing company a 15-month probationary license to keep operating in the city. Dara Khosrowshahi, the company’s chief executive officer, might also have cause to celebrate.The Tuesday ruling was a legal and public-relations victory for the newish CEO who took charge of the company last year as it was already reeling from multiple scandals and headlines of the unflattering kind. Within weeks, he was confronted with yet more bad news when London’s transit regulator said it wouldn’t renew the startup’s operating license in the city. His flight to London soon after was both a diplomatic mission and the beginning of a test to prove he was the right person to salvage the scandal-drenched business.“Such a young business has suffered a number of growing pains which have not been helped by what seemed to be a rather gung-ho attitude of those running the business … [Read more...] about Uber’s CEO Launched a Charm Offensive to Win Over London
News / UK and world by Press Association June 19, 2018, 11:54 am FacebookTwitterLinkedInWhatsAppEmail Sign up to our Daily newsletter IBM has pitted a computer against two human debaters in the first public demonstration of artificial intelligence technology it has been working on for more than five years. The company unveiled its Project Debater in San Francisco, asking it to make a case for government-subsidised space research — a topic it had not studied in advance but championed fiercely with just a few awkward gaps in reasoning. “Subsidising space exploration is like investing in really good tyres,” argued the computer system, its female voice embodied in a 5ft-tall machine shaped like a monolith with TV screens on its sides. Such research would enrich the human mind, inspire young people and be a “very sound investment”, it said, making it more important even than good roads, schools or health care. The computer delivered its … [Read more...] about IBM pits computer against human debaters
