Prosthetic hand gets sense of touch with electronic 'skin'

Prosthetic hand get sonse of touchEngineers have developed an electronic "skin" that allows prosthetic hand users to perceive a real sense of touch.

The e-dermis, when layered on top of the prosthetic hands, restores the sensation of touch through the fingertips. Engineers at Johns Hopkins University published findings Wednesday in the journal Science Robotics.

"This is interesting and new because now we can have a prosthetic hand that is already on the market and fit it with an e-dermis that can tell the wearer whether he or she is picking up something that is round or whether it has sharp points," Luke Osborn, a graduate student in biomedical engineering at Hopkins, said in a press release.

Turkey and India announced on Thursday retaliatory tariffs worth hundreds of millions of dollars on goods imported from the United States, joining the growing list of Washington allies that have taken similar measures.

The tariffs will also affect US products such as walnuts, almonds, tobacco, unprocessed rice, whisky, cosmetics, machinery equipment and petrochemical products.

Trump Signs Order Ending Separation of Migrant Families

Trump ends his own policy without taking responsibility for it.In signing the order, Trump said the “zero tolerance” prosecution policy would continue. That policy lead families to being separated because it subjected all migrants who crossed the border illegally to criminal prosecution. When parents were taken to detention, children were reclassified as “unaccompanied minors” and sent to government-run facilities.

It is not immediately clear how that will continue while families stay together.

This reversal comes after the Trump administration faced withering criticism over the policy from politicians on both sides of the aisle, humanitarian groups, pediatricians, religious groups and others.

TVNL Comment:  This was Trump's policy.  No other president had separated families, and still Der Trump gets up and lies through his ugly hair.  He could have ended the seizure of children by never implementing his policy, and then with a phone call to his AG, Jeff Sessions.  The damage has been done.

Steve Schmidt: Why I Quit the ‘Vile’ Republican Party

Steve Schmidt: Why I quit the vile GOP

Steve Schmidt, the veteran GOP strategist who worked in the George W. Bush White House and ran John McCain’s campaign for president, accused Republicans of complicity with the “vile” Trump administration and its “evil” policies unless they follow him and quit the party.

Schmidt announced Tuesday night that he had formally left the party over Trump’s policy of separating families at the U.S. border with Mexico.

Speaking to The Daily Beast, he called for his old boss, President Bush, to set aside political convention and come out to publicly challenge Trump’s grip on both the country and the Republican Party, which he feels is set to collapse. “This is a metastasis, a cancer, a toxin that has destroyed the Republican Party,” he said.

'Womp, womp': Ex-Trump campaign manager Lewandowski mocks migrant girl with Down syndrome

Lewandowski mocks child with Downs SyndromeFormer Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski cynically dismissed concerns about reports that a migrant girl with Down syndrome had been separated from her mother at the southwest U.S. border as a result of the White House's "zero-tolerance" immigration policy.

"Womp, womp," Lewandowski said to fellow panelist Zac Petkanas during an appearance on Fox News Tuesday night after Petkanas, a Democratic strategist, said he had read about a 10-year-old girl with Down syndrome "who was taken from her mother and put in a cage."

"Did you say 'womp, womp' to a 10-year-old with Down syndrome being separated from her mother?" a shocked Petkanas asked. "How dare you."

Trump to sign executive action halting family separations

Trump to sign exec order halting separation of families

President Donald Trump said he plans to sign an executive action on Wednesday that would end the administration’s policy of separating migrant families crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, abandoning the president’s previous stance that only Congress can fix the problem.

“The Republicans want security and insist on security for our country. And we will have that,” Trump said during a meeting at the White House with lawmakers and officials. “At the same time we have compassion and want to keep families together. It’s very important. I’ll be signing something in a little while that’s going to do that.”

TVNL Comment:  Trump initiated this policy.  He is the one to stop it.  No wall, no ransom of any sort.  Just an end to this inhumanity.
