Taipei's mayor has a new side job: Rapping.For 2 minutes and 46 seconds, Ko Wen-je, Taipei's trauma surgeon-turned-mayor chants "do the right thing, do things right" and "guai guai de" (loosely translated as weird) in a new video dropped on YouTube this week, Radii reported. His partner, 25-year-old Taiwanese rapper Chunyan, is responsible for more complex verses of the rap, including a line that says "don't steal chickens or pet the dog," referring to laziness and petty theft.It's quite clearly trying to bring across Ko's message for the city to "do right things" and to "do things right," which are qualities he emphasised in a press release sent out by the Taipei City Government two years ago as he reflected on his time as mayor.Besides working to bring Ko's message across to his audience, the video includes snippets of his life as Taipei's mayor, showing him in a buttoned up white shirt tucked into high-waist pants and a pen clipped to his shirt pocket walking along a dimly lit … [Read more...] about Hear Taipei’s 59-year-old mayor rap about doing things right

In today's world, it's not hard to find yourself being recorded. With an explosion in security cameras and recording devices in virtually every pocket, private moments may not be so private after all. What transpires on those recordings can tell us a lot. In this installment of Reporter's Notebook, "CBS This Morning" co-host John Dickerson examines the good, the bad and the ugly of secretly recorded behavior – from parking lots to the West Wing. One test of a person's character is if they do the right thing when they don't think anybody's looking. This week, a grand jury report showed that the Catholic Church of Pennsylvania failed that test. White House staffers were facing that test daily, as recordings were released by a former top Trump official, Omarosa Manigault Newman.

President Donald Trump addressed reporters in Singapore on Tuesday afternoon local time, following his summit with North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, telling them that he was hopeful for the prospects of peace, and that “they will be doing things” on human rights. Trump noted that the summit was just the beginning of an “arduous process,” and noted that sanctions against the North Korean regime would remain in place, but held out great potential for peace and prosperity.“The past does not have to define the future. Yesterday’s conflict does not have to be tomorrow’s war,” Trump said, adding, “There is no limit to what North Korea can achieve when it gives up its nuclear weapons and embraces commerce and engagement with the rest of the world.” The first question from the press corps challenged the president about how he could praise Kim Jong-un when he was, after all, a brutal dictator. Trump responded by mentioning … [Read more...] about President Trump at Post-North Korea Summit Presser: ‘They Will Be Doing Things’ on Human Rights

That is suppose to operate at 600 gigaflops. Since they are not really doing much with that right now. Other than FaceID. So maybe Apple will update their SDK to allow it's developers the ability to use that embedded AI on board the A11 SoC?
