Trump nominates Amy Coney Barrett to US supreme court
"President. Trump says he believes the Senate will move quickly to confirm Judge Amy Cockney Barrett to the U. S. Supreme Court. Over the weekend. The president formally nominated bearer to succeed the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as NPR's Claudia Chrysalis reports. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham says confirmation hearings will begin October 12 Following that we'll have two days of questioning and then we'll report out this nomination out of committee about 10. Days later on October 22nd. Graham said Barrett would get a quote full fair hearing in that time and then to be up to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to schedule a vote on the floor of the full Senate. The Supreme Court vacancy is expected to come up tomorrow night when Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden face off in their first presidential debate in Ohio.
Examining the Record of Amy Coney Barrett as Nomination Fight Heats Up
"President Trump's nominee to the supreme court appeared at the White House over the weekend. Judge Amy Conybeare at pay tribute to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who seat she is hoping to fill. Should I be confirmed Will be mindful of who came The flag of the United States is still flying at half staff and memory of justice. Ruth. Bader Ginsburg to mark the end of a great. American. Life. Justice Ginsburg began her career at a time when women were not welcome in the legal profession. But she not only broke glass ceilings she smashed them. But there are many ways their philosophies are quite different judge Barrett's legal career. We'll be under the microscope in the weeks ahead. So this is a good time to talk with our justice and judiciary editor, Vivica, Novak, Vivica good to have you here. To be with mark, I want to start out with the basics just who is judge amy, coney? Barrett and why are conservatives so enthusiastic about her nomination. She is a known conservative. She was a clerk for Justice Scalia and has often spoken of him very admiringly. She's been a lot professor Notre Dame and she has continued to teach while she has been on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago in general the anti-abortion groups feel very confident that she would be a vote in their favour whether she'd Overturn Roe v Wade is is unclear, but she is generally not a fan of abortion. Obviously abortion is getting a lot of discussion in this conversation, but this is a court that could. Rule on many different areas including health care even the twenty twenty election would her presence mean on the court? Well, she will be the person who gives the conservatives a six to three majority on the court, and even if Justice Roberts who has occasionally sided with the liberals even if he does that in the future on on certain cases, you know they will still have five votes, five conservative votes. So that's that's one important factor here. She will be probably not a vote in favor of upholding the affordable care act and that's one of the. First arguments. The court will hear it's coming up in November is a challenge to Obamacare and Justice Roberts a couple of years ago in another court challenge to the care he voted with the Liberals and she has actually said in a speech that she believes he voted wrong in that case in fact, he wrote the opinion she believes he was wrong. So that's one important issue coming up, and of course, the election none of us really wants to relive the two thousand election I don't think which was turned to the Supreme Court but it. Could happen it could happen, and if it does, you know there are some trepidation about the six three makeup of the court being certainly not in favor Joe Biden, we have election looming around the corner Republicans are moving forward planning to hold hearings the week of October twelfth in the hopes of confirming her before Election Day. So who will motivate more? How will this affect the election really good question conservatives generally in the past have been known to be more motivated by the prospect of putting more people on the federal courts including the Supreme Court. Democrats this time though are going to be framing things I think in terms of issues they're going to be talking about the affordable care act which most Americans are in favor of most Americans like it. They'll be talking to some degree about abortion probably not as much. They'll be talking about the election though and what could happen there. They will try very hard to peel off a couple of Republican votes. It's GonNa be tough hall, and Right now it looks like Mitch McConnell has. The votes and there isn't very much the Democrats can do about it. There may be a few procedural things that can slow things down, but it is really stretching to think that the Democrats I think could could slow this down, push it after the election, and then perhaps kill the nomination that's really pie in the sky. At this point it seems both parties feel a sense of urgency here as this is a lifetime appointment here and particularly her being so young, she's only forty eight. Could be on the court for a good long time and it's unclear. You know there are some other justices who are not that young but there are a lot who are actually not that old. So you know president trump has made it a point to name. People who have probably a good couple of decades at least on the court. Are Movements now to, for instance, put term limits on justices even if that were to make it through Congress and that's that's going to be hard to do. But even if were to make it through, even if a president were to sign it, it probably wouldn't apply to justices who are already on the court. It probably would be applied going forward. There are also people who talk about expanding the court. Some people call court packing that's kind of a derisive term, but expanding the court to add two more justices or more. That's really a tough lift but these things are being talked about more than we've heard in quite a long time. VIVICA Novak. Thanks again. Thank you.

Deno versus TypeScript
"Well, let's get to the point. How does type script fit into dino? Won't types crew field into dino as more safe way to writer programs way to make things more certain on expected. So you know that when you write with tight script, your force to type everything. So you always know what you're getting so that kind of fail-proof typing is extremely useful for large shallow scripts software. We recently had to write something that was critical in with money. We went with dice grip approach to make things super stable and predictable. I like that that were predictable in script. You always know what you're getting into the Phoenix Dino can ward with type script natively, you can type refile Andino will parse it just like any other showers creep filing dino doesn't care about their whether it's types creep or chevette script. So they is that there are some issues that the team. Found with a script because they were using task for DNA core and also for the user facing Api the cold but they were finding that they compiling the type script cold was taking a long time and it was increasingly getting longer and longer but they. They've found most important was that they didn't have found that tie screed was helping the organizing the code because I one of the issues I mentioned that they ended up with two body classes in separate locations. Also. They were maintaining like two tie script compiler host one for Dina Co the core. And another for the external user code, but both had a similar purpose and go. In the end they decided to go back, just plain chevette script for the core there were still retain the user code will still be typed. Chequered will still run through the type script compiler but they ended up in working with Chavez. creeped on. Leave for. Dinner. Core. And how does the type script support within dino compared to that of node? Well as mentioned, you can write native dino native the Thai script and lauded on Dino. You can get all the definition of the types in India no riding for example, Dino space types you'll need to sit up anything for Deana to understand types. Quit you just ride your program, it doesn't need any compilation. Dino will just run your. File. Wow that's interesting. How is that possible? How can you run type script without first compiling it down? Well the competitor is already integrated on the inner. Oh interesting. So so it's happening. It's just your.

With schools online, software to catch students cheating is big business
"Not only teaching. That's happening remotely for millions of students testing to and many colleges are using software to watch students take those tests, big providers, include respond, US, proctor, you and PROC. Some of them use webcams to track how? Students move their heads or is or touch the keyboard anything out of the ordinary flagged for teachers to review todd feathers recently co wrote a piece about a rebellion against this kind of surveillance for motherboard one concern false positives. Once you start the exam, they're all kinds of environmental factors that can lead to false positives. If you're a parent who has a child in the room, you're much more likely to be looking away from your screen or moving around than somebody who doesn't have A. Child in the room if you have adhd or some kind of anxiety disorder that's tied to taking tests, you're likely to exhibit behaviors that fall outside of the norm of other people in your class, and all of this can lead to being flagged as suspicious activity, and we have heard from students who have cried during tests because they're anxious about them. embiid flag alternatively I should say also heard stories from professors about students who go to all kinds of creative lanes to cheat from home. And have been caught as a result of using the cast off wear. So you talk to students who are really worried about privacy surveillance the potential for people to sort of fall outside the spectrum of what the Algorithm thinks is normal behavior. But not in fact, be cheating. You also spoke with a student of color who couldn't even take the test because the software didn't recognize his face. This is a problem that is not just related to this kind of software. A lot of these digital proctoring vendors don't create their own facial recognition technology. They are licensing it from other companies that specialize in s in facial recognition has been shown over and over again in different settings to not be good at recognizing people of Color, not be as good at recognizing women and to struggle to the point of absolute failure when it comes to people who don't identify one gender or another. What are the companies says about these criticisms I mean some students have protested the use of these the software campuses how have the company's reacted? Directed with a response that is pretty common across a lot of different technologies, applications of technologies, which is it. This software is a tool the company's give it to universities and two professors, and all they're doing is providing a quicker more efficient way for professors to identify possibly suspicious moments during an exam. There has been a lack of response directly to the criticisms about the invasion of privacy and about the way that it can negatively affect people who are underprivileged or from certain ethnic backgrounds. Right. Now, we're, of course in this moment where a lot more college students and students in Pre K. through twelve are at home taking online classes if and when we all get to get back together again, do you see these companies continuing to thrive and they're being an enough demand? A million dollar question I think that it's a pretty fair to say that once students are back in classrooms of all types this will not be quite as widely used as it is now but that being said, some of these companies are looking for other ways to expand. Their customers for example, Puck Toro has a recently announced a partnership with McGraw Hill, textbook maker to integrate its services into some of those online textbooks, and there are certain kinds of assessments, assessments for certain professional certifications such as nursing, which do require as part of state laws that the exams be proctored, and so if those aren't taking place in a physical room or even if they are, but there's the option to do it online. A space where tools like this are not only a possibility there arguably required by law.
