Thinking small is a prescription for disaster”.

On Monday, the president traveled through the West, visiting the National Interagency Fire Center in Boise, Idaho.

Donald Trump Jr. recently likened his father’s proposed border wall with Mexico to that of a zoo fence meant to contain animals.

At face value, the comment is insensitive.

But given the administration’s history — calling Mexicans criminals and rapists, locking Guatemalan and Honduran children in cages, proclaiming there were “good people on both sides” at a neo-Nazi rally in Charlotte, and proposing a Muslim travel ban — it’s easy to see why some see this as yet another in a series of dog whistles to the lowest common denominator of Trump’s base.

A spokesperson for Trump Jr. said that the post was meant to highlight the danger associated with an unsecured border.

As the government shutdown enters its third week, it’s clear that wall-related posturing has reached a fever pitch.

Trump Sr., for his part, claims he will not sign a budget proposal without more than five billion in funding for a border wall he promised while campaigning — the same wall he assured us Mexico would pay for, before walking that back and saying he “obviously” didn’t mean it.

There are plenty of places where you can find dodgy information about climate change.

If you’re the arguing (“debating”) type, you have likely, at some point, been exasperated by the obviously low quality of the sources cited by your opponent (or uncle).

Setting aside the occasional conspiratorial mind who believes “those scientists” can’t be trusted, who does everyone else actually trust on the topic?

The most trusted source of climate information was, encouragingly, science agencies, which got the thumbs up from 73 percent of the respondents.

Unsurprisingly, family and friends were second at 37 percent; research has shown that a primary factor behind climate change opinions is cultural identity—harmonizing views with family and friends.

The survey, which was done shortly after last November’s presidential election, also asked which candidate people had supported.

This is wrong: these are decisions and actions that will have harmful consequences, and Trump’s own supporters will be among those hurt.

Consider the Environmental Protection Agency, where Scott Pruitt, the former Oklahoma Attorney General who has long served as a protector of the oil and gas industry, is busy fellow-climate-change skeptics to help him carry out to dismantle the Obama Administration’s Clean Power Plan.

Pruitt’s aides are also drawing up plans to lay off many of the people at the agency who actually believe in environmental protection.

According to the Washington Post, Pruitt’s staff has that would eliminate a quarter of the agency’s workforce and fifty-six of its programs, including ones designed to clean up the Great Lakes, Chesapeake Bay, and Puget Sound.

Pruitt is a lightning rod, so the E.P.A.

This isn’t the case for other agencies whose missions have also tilted sharply right since January, such as the Federal Communications Commission.

A recently signed bill allows debt collectors to use robocalls to contact consumers over federal debts.

The FCC is trying to update those rules to make them less annoying, and they want your opinion.

A small amendment to that bill gave debt collectors the authority to robocall consumers over mortgage debt, student loan debt, or any other federal debt.

They want to update the rules to prevent robocalls to friends and family members of debtors, for example.

Consumer Reports has shared a convenient form to submit your opinion to your local members of Congress.

They further explain:

Right now, the FCC is considering strict guidelines that would regulate how and when debt collectors are allowed to contact you on your cell phone.

Last Thursday, Texas senior senator John Cornyn stood before an audience of wonks at the Council for Foreign Relations in Washington, DC, and warned that America’s openness to investors looking for new ideas in technologies like artificial intelligence was putting it in danger.

“Unless the trend line changes, we may one day see some of these technologies incorporated in China-made equipment that can be used against our country in the event, heaven forbid, of a military conflict.”

Cornyn highlighted China’s interest in robotics and artificial intelligence as particularly concerning.

His warning—and pledge to introduce legislation that could restrict Chinese investment in technology companies—came the week after Reuters reported, citing unidentified Trump administration officials, that the administration is considering a similar policy, also motivated in part by fears of China gaining access to valuable AI knowledge.

“I think the US should focus on accelerating its own AI rather than slowing down anyone else’s,” says Andrew Ng, a high-profile machine learning researcher who has worked at Stanford and Google, and was until recently chief scientist at Chinese search engine Baidu.

China is far from an AI delinquent.

Nasa spent eight years modifying a structure that took only two years to build.

A mobile launchpad built by Nasa for a Space Launch System (SLS) rocket will be used only once, in spite of its steep, nearly $1bn (£720m) price tag.

In order to understand just how much time and money has been pumped into this project, the US Government Accountability Office has released a few key figures, Ars Technica reports.

The ML was supposed to cost $54m (£38.8m), but between 2012 and 2015, Nasa spent $281.8m (£202m) revamping it, with work still not complete.

A budget proposal to the White House shows that Nasa was planning on spending an additional $396.2m (£284.7m) on the ML from 2015 until the maiden launch of SLS, which is slated to happen in 2020.

In all, the space agency will have spent $912m (£655m) on a launch pad that will most likely be suitable for only one launch.
