jarvis fortnite faze clan epic gamesScreenshot YouTube/Jarvis, Epic Games

After 17-year-old Jarvis Khattri's emotional response to being issued a lifetime ban from "Fortnite" for using "aimbots," a software hack, FaZe Clan has issued a statement seeking a "fair compromise" with Epic Games. Khattri is a member of the hugely popular competitive esports team FaZe Clan, which he joined after his older brother Frazier Khattri (FaZe Kaye) began featuring him in YouTube videos. In a statement shared with Insider, FaZe Clan said it will "remain hopeful and stand ready to work with Epic Games in any way possible to come up with opportunity [sic] that allows Jarvis to play again at some point in his life." Previously, "Fortnite" maker Epic Games told Insider that cheat software like Khattri used in YouTube videos was subject to a "zero tolerance policy," but members of FaZe Clan like FaZe Banks have argued that Khattri's punishment was unfair compared to other disciplinary actions taken by Epic Games.

FaZe Clan is hoping to reach a "fair compromise" with Epic Games that will allow its 17-year-old "Fortnite" streamer Jarvis Khattri to play again, in light of the lifetime ban he received for using "aimbots" for YouTube videos.

In a statement shared with Insider, the major esports team said "FaZe Clan is deeply saddened by the devastating impact this had had on Jarvis's life.  But we remain hopeful and stand ready to work with Epic Games in any way possible to come up with opportunity [sic] that allows Jarvis to play again at some point in his life."

These songs inspired by Trump’s handwritten quid pro quo defense are peak Twitter
The Twitter-verse is alive with the sound of music that was inspired by the most unusual of lyricists: US President Donald J. Trump. Earlier this week the embattled number 45 put on one of the strangest performances of his presidency as he spoke to media outside the White House. Starring as both narrator and lead, the President acted out what it might look like if he directly responded to inquiries raised by US Ambassador Gordon Sondland during the ongoing impeachment hearings.

Secret Service spent more than $250,000 at Trump's properties in the first 5 months of his presidency, records show
AP Photo/Scott Heppell, File Newly released records show that the Secret Service spent more than $250,000 at Trump properties during the first five months of Trump's presidency. These new records offered new insight into federal spending, as documents reviewed in the past showed that federal spending at Trump properties amounted to just $84,000 in the first five months of his term. But these new records show expenses racked up on Secret Service credit cards, amounting to another $254,000 spent by just one agency. Some of the dates on the spending records even appear to align with the weekend trips Trump has taken to his golf resorts. "On April 2, 2017, for instance, Trump played golf at his club in suburban Virginia — a short drive from the White House," The Washington Post reported. "That day, the records show, the Secret Service made five separate payments to "Trump National Golf Club" totaling $26,802, the records show." Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Here's how to make a "computer on a card" from the 1960s
Michael Gardi says, "There were probably millions of CARDIACs (CARDboard Illustrative Aid to Computation) distributed to high schools and colleges in the late 60s and early 70s. Heck even my little high school in Northern Ontario got a bunch of them. But they are all but impossible to find now, so here is the next best thing." The CARDIAC Instructable presented here is not a computer, it's a device to help you understand how a computer works. You the user will: decode instructions by sliding panels up and down, move the program counter "lady bug" from one memory location to the next, perform the duties of an arithmetic logic unit (ALU), read inputs from one sliding strip, and write output results to another (with a pencil). Along the way you will you will learn the internal workings of a typical Von Neumann architecture computer. Some fairly sophisticated programs can be executed (by you manually remember) on the CARDIAC. Stacks, subroutines, recursion, and bootstrapping for example can all be demonstrated.

Australia v Pakistan: first Test, day two – live!
Updates from the second day of play at the GabbaNew Zealand v England – live first Test coverage!Any thoughts? Email or tweet @GeoffLemonSport 12.32am GMT 6th over: Australia 34-0 (Warner 18, Burns 12) The errors keep building. Overpitched, so Warner can drive two runs through cover. On the legs, square for two more. The runs coming too easily, both batsmen have a start. Then overpitched again and Warner drives for four. Nice stride, perfect balance, out through cover. Imran looks for a solution by shifting to around the wicket, right-armer to left-hander, but bowls the same length and Warner can drive through cover again for three. The ball gets saved because third slip has been moved to cover and is able to chase it down. Australia off to a flyer, nearly 6 runs an over. Time for a change. 12.27am GMT 5th over: Australia 23-0 (Warner 7, Burns 12) Shaheen is the one not getting it right now. Just enough width for Warner to steer it away behind point, his most productive shot in Test cricket, for three runs. Then down leg side, and Burns doesn’t hit it with the bat but gets some thigh pad on it, four leg byes. Continue reading...

Alphabet X’s new Everyday Robot project wants to build robots that can learn from the world around them

The team is testing robots that can help out in workplace environments, though right now, these early robots are focused on learning how to sort trash. Here’s what one of them looks like — it reminds me of a very tall, one-armed Wall-E (ironic, given what the robots are tasked to do): Here’s a GIF of a robot actually sorting a recyclable can from a compost pile to a...
