The Daily Moth 11-27-19


Hello, welcome
to the Daily Moth. It’s Wednesday, November 27.
Ready for the news? Large parts of the United States
was hit with winter storms that brought snow, rain,
and strong winds today, affecting millions of people’s
Thanksgiving travel plans. The Weather Channel said
there is a bomb cyclone on the West coast and said
the storm system would slowly spread towards the central
and eastern United States into this weekend. In Northern California, heavy snow and downed
trees caused blackouts. CNN reported that there are over
200,000 people without power in California, Indiana,
Michigan (not here, obviously), Wisconsin, and Kentucky. High-altitude parts of Colorado
and Wyoming got up to 30 inches of snow. The Twin Cities is forecast to
get 10 to 15 inches of snow. The Great Lakes region
will get heavy rain, snow, and strong winds. New England will be impacted
by a coastal storm that will bring a wintry mix of
rain, wind, and snow. AAA estimates that 55 million
Americans will travel for the holiday, and if
you’re one of them, check out the weather
forecast and prepare for flight cancellations
or heavy traffic. Captioned by
aslcaptions.com Two polls of Democratic
candidates for 2020 showed that the top four are
Vice President Joe Biden, Mayor Pete Buttigieg,
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and Sen. Bernie Sanders. The latest Quinnipiac
University nationwide poll had Biden at 24%,
Buttigieg at 16%, Warren at 14%,
and Sanders at 13%. The second poll is by Emerson
Polling of likely voters in New Hampshire. Sanders had 26%,
Buttigieg had 22%, Biden had 14%,
and Warren had 14%. So we see that Biden has
maintained his frontrunner status, Buttigieg has surged
from someone who was unknown to a serious contender,
Warren is falling behind, and Sanders is up and down. Analysts say Warren has fallen
behind because of criticism of her “Medicare for All” plan
that would do away with private health insurance and
cost at least $20 trillion over the next 10 years. Biden doesn’t seem to be
hurt by the attacks from President Trump over his son’s
former work in Ukraine that is a part of what sparked
the impeachment inquiry. It is not a surprise
that Sanders is strong in New Hampshire as
he is from Vermont. His challenge is courting
voters nationwide. Buttigieg seems to appeal to
voters because of his moderate political views,
his youthfulness, and his military service. He is openly gay. But he has faced criticism from
black voters on his leadership as mayor in South Bend
and media reports say he has struggled to build
trust with African American communities. The first nominating
contest is in 10 weeks – the Iowa caucuses
on Monday, February 3. The next contest is
the New Hampshire primary on February 11. President Donald Trump is very
popular among Republican voters and is expected to easily
defeat former Illinois U.S. representative Joe Walsh and
former Massachusetts governor Bill Weld in Iowa
and New Hampshire. At least five states’ Republican
parties have decided to not even hold elections
and allow Trump to walk. But, Trump is facing
an impeachment inquiry in the House, although it is
unlikely the Senate would vote to convict him. His biggest challenge will
be the general election in November 2020. President Trump said in
an interview with Bill O’Reilly last night that he plans to
designate Mexican drug cartels as a foreign
terrorist organizations. This is after six children
and three mothers who were dual American-Mexican citizens who
lived in a religious community in northern Mexico were
brutally murdered by suspected cartel members
who opened fire at their SUVs. Trump said he’s been working
on the designation for the past 90 days and that
there is a process. If the cartels are
designated as terrorists, it gives the U.S. government
and authorities more latitude to levy sanctions against banks
or government agencies that are connected to cartels. It could also lead to
military intervention. The Washington Post reported
that former presidents Obama and Bush (43) considered doing this,
but backed down because of the potential for negative
implications on economic and trade relationships with Mexico. Mexican President Obrador said
on Monday that their problems will be solved by Mexicans
and that he doesn’t want any interference from
any foreign country. This morning, after
Trump’s interview last night, Obrador said he wanted to send
a hug to the American people for Thanksgiving and said
he would only say yes to cooperation but
no to interventionism. Mexico’s Foreign Ministry said
they want to have a high-level meeting with the U.S.
to discuss this issue. The Gallaudet University
men’s basketball team will play against the University
of Vermont (UVM) tonight and it will be televised
on ESPN3 at 7 pm. If you have ESPN, you can
login with your cable provider. UVM is a Division 1 college, while Gallaudet University
is in Division III. UVM coach John Becker’s
first collegiate coaching jobs was with Gallaudet when
he was an assistant coach and then the head coach
from 1995 to 1997. Gallaudet’s head coach Kevin
Kovacs used to be a player under him during the 1994-95
season and worked with him as an assistant coach
for two years. He said it would be surreal
for him to look across the court and see Becker. Gallaudet has yet
to win this season, losing their first five games. UVM has a 5-2 record. Kovacs tweeted that tonight will
be their toughest game so far. Becker explained
in an interview that when he was in the DIII level,
any opportunity to play against a DI program was a huge
opportunity and that’s why he played against a DIII
school the past two years, and decided to play
Gallaudet this year. Good luck to both teams, and again it’ll be on
ESPN3 tonight at 7 pm. Gallaudet’s leading scorer
is guard Noah Valencia. Yesterday I did a story
about the Mass. State Police using robot dogs and asked
what you thought of it. I’ll share some
of your reactions. Several commenters pointed out
that they are concerned about deaf people having
a disadvantage because we can’t hear audio
demands from robots and that it can be
dangerous or deadly. Another commenter on YouTube
said robots are okay if they are used to disarm bombs, but
that they shouldn’t be used to respond to shooters because
he doesn’t want robots to target innocent humans. Some commenters are concerned
that allowing robot dogs would lead to robots eventually taking
over the world and kill humans like what happened in movies
“I, Robot” or “Terminator.” Other commenters said robots
would be a waste of money as it would be
very expensive to fix if someone shot at
them or damaged them. Those are
interesting perspectives, especially the ones about
how deaf people would be able to respond to robot
dogs’ verbal commands. That’s something that our deaf
advocacy organizations have to start thinking about. That is all for today! There will be no news
tomorrow and Friday because of the
Thanksgiving holiday. Have a wonderful
break and weekend. If there is a major,
breaking news, I will make a report
on Moth Facebook. Stay with the light! Captioned by www.aslcaptions.com

  • It's indeed still the most challenging thing to have a new level robot in people's society life. Just as how many warehouse and factory now have robot running the job without people. Many people fear this lost of job because robots taking over. The way of life won't be the same as the old day.

    In my opinion, I don't think we need a robot in job or a human form for military, police, maid, teacher etc… It all about finding a easy way to save money in business from paying worker. Plus it still dangerous to deal with any kind of robots anyway.

  • Please safety for travel drive while weather storm. May blizzard in your location by NOAA Weather Alert.
    Happy Thanksgiving to Alex. 🦃👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

  • The robot dog could malfunction or someone a hacker can hack in the robot program and reprogramming inside the dog software become dangerously to human maybe can kill human it similar to terminator . I would not recommend it., Better to be an old faction way than new faction as today . The dog have a tail looks like a hand maybe it need to hand with a sign language above the dog s head . Maybe ?

  • Have a great thanksgiving y'all!! I was surprised that my comment got featured, I don't know how to feel about that haha.

  • what an idiot! funny how mexican cartels r considered terrorists, but White Supremacists r not considered terrorists!! Trump is totally an IDIOT!!!

  • Daily Moth: In Massachusetts, Deaf people feared that Dog robots can’t use to communicate ASL sign language with them, so they may be withdrew.
