White House and GOP negotiators reach an agreement in principle to raise the US debt limit for 2 years. The deal involves cutting and capping certain federal programs while imposing work requirements for some aid recipients. It also reclaims unspent pandemic relief funds, reduces IRS enforcement funding, and includes energy project review reforms. The compromise aims to avert a default crisis and break the fiscal stalemate in Washington. However, it faces challenges in Congress, with potential opposition from conservative Republicans and progressive Democrats. The agreement reduces federal spending by approximately $650 billion over a decade. A vote is expected soon, requiring bipartisan support.

A study has found that conservative America has far more gun deaths than liberal America. The article discusses how conservatives often argue that the right to bear arms is sacred, while liberals argue that conservatives are misinterpreting the Second Amendment. The article also touches on the conservative backlash to progress and how conservatives often try to force a reinstatement of the status quo when political minorities advocate for greater equality. The article contrasts this with a separate study that found that Americans' attitudes and behaviors have become more liberal overall in the past 50 years, with a decidedly liberal tilt since the 1990s.

What a fnkcin' idiot.

I volunteer for a nonprofit, helping them secure grant funding to combat human trafficking.

Recently, I've begun to leverage the capabilities of AI platforms to assist in grant writing. Using GPT-based models like ChatGPT might not offer optimal outcomes for research needs, but they can serve as valuable tools for organizing proposals and analyzing Request for Proposals (RFPs). For the research-intensive sections, such as writing the Statement of Need, platforms like Perplexity.ai have proven incredibly helpful. By integrating multiple AI platforms, I was able to draft a small grant proposal within a fraction of the usual time"a mere hour compared to the weeks it often takes. This proposal led to securing funding of $200K.

A vital point to note here is that our competitors are increasingly harnessing these technologies. As such, the question has evolved from "should we use AI?" to "why wouldn't we use AI when it's clear others are benefiting from it?"

The prevalence of AI platforms in our work experience is poised to surge in the near future. In the education sector, we are proactively exploring and experimenting with this technology. Our aim is to understand its potential misuse while also discovering ways it can benefit both students and teachers inside and outside the classroom. Already, industry recruiters are urging us to impart AI familiarity to students, as they're integrating AI technology into their systems. The hope is that high school graduates will understand the basic workings of AI and its potential industry benefits.

As we move forward, we're likely to witness more success stories like this. The use of AI technology in our daily lives, particularly at work, is more than a passing trend"it's an inevitable evolution.

I strongly encourage you to experiment with various AI platforms if you haven't already. Many offer the opportunity to explore their capabilities free of charge.

The integration of AI into our daily lives marks a seismic shift in how we operate: it's a game-changer. It's advisable to familiarize yourself with this technology and its applications early on. The AI train is picking up speed; it's in your best interest to get on board now. IOW, this is a change of tides, folks. It's like we've been playing checkers, and someone just dropped a chessboard in our lap. Better get on this bandwagon before it turns into a rocket ship. And remember, even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there!

Native American high school graduate sues school district after she says she wasn't allowed to wear sacred eagle feather at graduation
www.cnn.com

In the lawsuit, Black says that two Broken Arrow Public School officials approached her on the football field where the ceremony was about to take place, and yelled at her to remove the "decoration."

Black says she tried to explain to the staff that the eagle plume was a "significant" "religious and cultural item, not a decoration," according to the lawsuit.

She alleges that the two staff members ignored her and tried to rip the eagle plume off her cap.

Black says she suffered a panic attack and sank to the ground with her knees curled up to her chest, while the two staff members continued to grab at her eagle feather.

The sacred plume was "physically and ceremonially damaged" in the encounter, the lawsuit alleges. And now, Black says she's not sure if she will ever use it again, according to the lawsuit.

That's borderline battery, isn't it? Nothing about that in the CNN article, though. They glossed right over the school staff's violent actions.

More context provided:

(www.businessinsider.com):
>Corcoran's notes are now in the hands of Jack Smith, the special counsel to the investigation into whether Trump mishandled classified documents and intended to obstruct the investigation into the documents. This investigation comes after troves of documents were discovered in his Mar-a-Lago home after he left office.

According to reports from March, **the notes were handed over by a federal judge after she decided there was sufficient evidence in them to suggest that Trump used his lawyer in the furtherance of a crime.**

The old "creating new crimes while being investigated for current crimes." ROFL.
