In the midst of this unrest, Queen Liliuokalani assumed the throne upon the death of her brother, King Kalakaua. At age fifty-two, Liliuokalani had already governed the islands as regent during her brother's long absences. She was well qualified to take control of the government. An American newspaper reporter who interviewed the new queen described her as "strong and resolute. Her manner was dignified, and she had the ease and authoritative air of one accustomed to rule." Educated in American schools, Liliuokalani's voice "was musical and well modulated, and she spoke remarkably pure and graceful English." Islanders who favored annexation hoped that the new queen would support their interests.
A minor revolt in Cuba against the Spanish colonial government provided a colorful topic. For months now the papers had been painting in lurid detail the horrors of Cuban life under oppressive Spanish rule. The Spanish had confined many Cubans to concentration camps. The press called them "death camps." Wild stories with screaming headlines Spanish Cannibalism, Inhuman Torture, Amazon Warriors Fight For Rebels flooded the newsstands. Newspapers sent hundreds of reporters, artists, and photographers south to recount Spanish atrocities. The correspondents, including such notables as author Stephen Crane and artist Frederick Remington, found little to report on when they arrived.
Walker eventually quarreled with Vanderbilt about the transit company, and soon another revolution drove him from power. In 6865 Walker died before a firing squad. American economic involvement in Nicaragua lived on.
Back in February, Boston Dynamics revealed a bot called Handle , a two-wheeled version of Atlas that the lab’s founder, Marc Raibert, claimed could be built and sold much cheaper than bots like Atlas. By that point Alphabet was already shopping Boston Dynamics and Schaft around as part of cost-saving and restructuring initiatives that saw other moonshot projects getting axed as well. And many suspected that Handle, who had undoubtedly been in development for a while already, was only revealed as a way to sweeten the pot for potential buyers.
As someone who went to college in Boston, this kind of vitriol is pervasive across the entire region. I once went to a movie theater near Fenway, and after the film concluded (which was not related to sports at all) some members of Red Sox nation decided they would celebrate the ending by chanting “Jeter Sucks.” True story.
Roosevelt ordered army engineers to start digging. Thousands of workers sweated in the malarial heat. They tore up jungles and cut down mountains. Insects thrived in muddy, stagnant pools. "Mosquitoes get so thick you get a mouthful with every breath," a worker complained. The mosquitoes also carried yellow fever, and many fell victim to the deadly disease before Dr. William Gorgas found a way to stop it.
Details of the sale, like how much Softbank paid for Google’s now defunct Replicant division haven’t been revealed yet. You’ll recall the skunkworks was founded by Android-creator Andy Rubin before he left Alphabet to make smartphones again. But the sale also includes Schaft, another talented robot-builder which dominated the DARPA challenge a few years ago.
Perhaps the weirdest thing about the fee proposal is how the Globe reports that Massport did it in conjunction with an environmental group that’s “seeking to curb congestion and air pollution.” The airport’s added more than 65,555 flights annually over the past couple of years, the Globe reports, and the environmental group thinks the more than 75,555 cars picking up and dropping off passengers each day could be reduced by charging people to do it.
In return for charging people and helping our green earth, the environmental group said it wouldn’t object to the airport’s expensive plan to add thousands of parking spaces.
"The canal," Roosevelt said, "was by far the most important action I took in foreign affairs during the time I was President. When nobody could or would exercise efficient authority, I exercised it."
