Fifty years ago, the city ignited into five days of rioting after Detroit police raided an illegal after-hours club. People there say police shoved a pregnant woman aside during the raid. Someone else threw a brick at the officers. Many African-American Detroiters call it a rebellion against systemic racism and decades of harassment by some white police officers. (This post contains…

Proponents of self-driving cars say they'll make the world safer, but autonomous vehicles need to predict what bicyclists are going to do. Now researchers say part of the answer is to have bikes feed information to cars. A few years ago on Google's campus, Nathaniel Fairfield arranged an unusual lunch break. He asked a bunch of staff to hop on bikes and ride around and around a self-driving car to collect data. "It was kind of gorgeous," he says. Fairfield is the principal software…

Jenny Slate’s laughter comes out in a wild gush, as though she’s been shaken and uncorked, the sound somehow puppyishly sweet and punkishly impolite. Her characters, cheery cynics, often fail to quite match the mood of a room, so their amused eruptions can hurt feelings, stir bafflement, inspire the…

"It beeped in the envelope. That's how we knew." Leslie Conrad is the director of Clemson Outdoor Lab in Pendleton, S.C., which runs several different camps during the summer. Clemson bans cellphones and other electronic devices for campers. That makes sense. We traditionally think of summer camp as a place to swim in the lake and weave friendship bracelets, not text and play video games.
