Despite setbacks, coronavirus could hasten the adoption of autonomous vehicles and delivery robots This week, nearly every major company developing autonomous vehicles in the U.S. halted testing in an effort to stem the spread of COVID-19, which has sickened more than 250,000 people and killed over 10,000 around the world. Still some experts argue pandemics like COVID-19 should hasten the adoption of driverless vehicles for passenger pickup, transportation of goods, and more. Autonomous vehicles still require disinfection — which companies like Alphabet’s Waymo and KiwiBot are conducting manually with sanitation teams — but in some cases, self-driving cars and delivery robots might minimize the risk of spreading disease.

11 ways to enhance digital reading in the classroom While printed books aren’t going away, today’s kids are wired to think digital first. Combined with a growing number of ways for teachers, students and authors to interact online, digital reading is allowing students to connect with content on a deeper level. In their recent online presentation, “The Transformative Power of Digital Reading,” Michelle Luhtala, the library department chair at the New Canaan High School in Connecticut, and Jane Lofton, a retired teacher librarian, shared tools and strategies for effective engagement with digital sources. The first step to effectively using digital reading is for teachers to embrace social reading, the presenters said. While this isn’t a new concept, technology adds a new dimension to the storytelling process for authors and readers. Here are some of the concepts they recommended educators investigate:

Resolve Constructive Trust Issues with Help of Brian O'Connell Tom Girardi, of Los Angeles law firm Girardi Keese, and wife Erika Jayne, of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fame, have been sued by another law firm for supposedly embezzling settlement money that should have been for families of the Lion Air crash victims from 2018. According to the lawsuit filed by the Edelson law firm, local counsel for the case’s litigation and settlement process, Girardi used Boeing’s settlement money to fund he and his wife’s “lavish Beverly Hills lifestyles,” amidst “a downward spiral of mounting debts and dwindling funds.” Edelson is seeking a court judgment that would compel a complete accounting of all the settlement funds transferred by Boeing to Girardi’s law firm, which should then be distributed as appropriate both to the families of the victims and Edelson. Either that or the court should judge that it be put in a constructive trust.

Robots rising: Coronavirus drives up demand for non-human labour in China SHANGHAI: A shortage of workers and restrictions on human contact because of the coronavirus pandemic is driving up demand for service robots in China, potentially boosting a sector that has struggled to scale up commercially. Venture capitalists with expertise in the robotics sector said they are anticipating orders from China to rise significantly this year, based on interest since the end of January when the virus began spreading in China. That could take the use of service robots from novelties that deliver food and drink in restaurants and hotels to an army that performs essential functions in hospitals bound by strict no-contact rules.

Kobe Bryant: Lakers Rookie Is Teenager of the Year in 1998 Shaquille O’Neal was buck naked, but nobody was paying much attention.

There he was, alone and in the raw, staring at the swarm of reporters surrounding eighteen-year-old Lakers rookie Kobe Bryant.

Jay Salpeter's Struggle to Solve Marty Tankleff's Fifteen-Year-Old Murder Case - Nymag Private Investigator Jay Salpeter inched his blue Mercedes SUV along a narrow road in affluent Belle Terre, a private community on Long Island’s North Shore, and stopped at a luxurious mansion overlooking the Sound. Here was the setting of one of New York’s most notorious murder sagas—the place where, in 1988, a wealthy former insurance executive named Seymour Tankleff and his wife, Arlene, were found stabbed and bludgeoned to death. Their son, Martin Tankleff, then 17, was convicted of the killings two years later and given a prison sentence of 50 years to life. Salpeter, a former NYPD homicide detective, was here because he didn’t believe Marty Tankleff killed his parents. Instead, he thinks that three career criminals, working in league with one of Seymour’sbusiness partners, broke into the house and killed the Tankleffs while young Marty slept. Salpeter has been working the Marty Tankleff case for four years now.

Questions and Answers about Special Education after OSERS and NDE’s “Continuity of Learning” Guidance During COVID-19 Closure — KSB School Law It’s been 3 weeks. Let’s have some straight talk. The terms “enrichment,” “educational services,” “continuity of learning,” and many others are melting your brains at this point. You and your staff just want to know: “How can we best serve students while complying with our legal, ethical, and moral convictions?” The difficulty in answering that question is compounded by the fact that most state and federal leaders have said they expect schools to remain closed for the remainder of the school year, or longer. As schools come to terms with the fact that they will not be back in session for the fourth quarter, educators are fighting their instincts to hustle and provide educational services, while recognizing their obligations to all students.
