'The world is watching': US house condemns Trump over racist comments – video
The US House of Representatives voted to condemn Donald Trump for ‘racist comments’ against four minority Democratic congresswomen, a symbolic vote aimed at shaming the president and the fellow Republicans who stood by him. 'The world is watching, and the world is in shock,' says Democrat Karen Bass from California, 'His comments were beneath the dignity of the office of the president of the United States and they have no place in our country. Trump had told the group of congresswomen to ‘go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came'. All four lawmakers – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan – are US citizens. Three were born in the United States. Democrats, who have a majority in the House, passed the symbolic resolution of condemnation on Tuesday evening, which said the House ’strongly condemns President Donald Trump's racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of colour’. Four Republicans joined the Democrats to support the measure. Continue reading...

FaceApp's aging filter has people comparing their selfies to pictures of their parents
FaceApp's trending new aging filter has people comparing AI-aged photos of themselves with their parents' photos. Using neural networks, the app guesses where you'll wrinkle, where your hairline will recede to, and what parts of your face will sag over the years.  Twitter users compared their FaceApp selfies with photos of their actual parents, or posed next to them. For many — most of whom are men — the results are uncanny.  Happy 62nd birthday to my dad! Here’s a picture of him at 61 and me probably at 61.

Why do so many people still believe the moon landings were a hoax? – podcast
On the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission that first put humans on the moon, Richard Godwin explores why conspiracy theories about the landings still endure. Plus Geoff Andrews on his part in the Guardian’s lunar front page from 1969 – and how he missed the famous quoteIt took 400,000 Nasa employees and contractors to put Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the moon in 1969 – but only one man to spread the idea that it was all a hoax. His name was Bill Kaysing.It began as “a hunch, an intuition”, before turning into “a true conviction” – that the US lacked the technical prowess to make it to the moon (or, at least, to the moon and back). Richard Godwin tells Anushka Asthana how Kaysing’s self-published 1976 pamphlet We Never Went to the Moon: America’s Thirty Billion Dollar Swindle sought to provide evidence for his conviction by means of grainy photocopies and ludicrous theories. Yet somehow he established a few perennials that are kept alive to this day in Hollywood movies and Fox News documentaries, Reddit forums and YouTube channels. Continue reading...

Google bans another Chinese app developer for bad ad practices
Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Google is banning a Chinese developer from the Play store for violating its advertising policies. CooTek, which is listed on the NYSE and is probably best known in the West for its TouchPal keyboard replacement, no longer has access to Google’s ad platforms and has had dozens of apps removed altogether. The news was reported by BuzzFeed following an investigation from Lookout that showed hundreds of CooTek apps using an invasive adware plugin called BeiTaAd. This plugin reportedly sent aggressive ads to users even when the phone or the app wasn’t in use, which Lookout researcher Kristina Balaam said could “render the phones nearly unusable.” CooTek said it would remove BeiTaAd, but BuzzFeed and Lookout subsequently discovered that many of the updated apps — which Google accepted into the Play Store — contained separate code that enabled the same ads. “There was not any re-engagement on the ad activity pointed out by Lookout on any of the versions which we updated,” CooTek spokesperson Mina Luo told BuzzFeed. “The findings claimed by Lookout this time are lack of evidence [sic] and the logic is not convincing.” Google, however, was convinced. “Our Google Play developer policies strictly prohibit malicious and deceptive behavior, as well as disruptive ads,” a Google spokesperson said to BuzzFeed. “When violations are found, we take action.” This isn’t the first time Google has had to take action against Chinese developers for abusing Play store app policies. Do Global was banned in April for similar violations, while the company also took action against Cheetah Mobile and Kika Tech last year.
