    China was once very dependent on US chips for its phones. The latest Chinese phones have no US parts. The Wall Street Journal reports Huawei Manages to Make Smartphones Without American Chips. American tech companies are getting the go-ahead to resume business with Chinese smartphone giant Huawei Technologies Co., but it may be too late: It is now building smartphones without U.S. chips. Huawei’s latest phone, which it unveiled in September—the Mate 30 with a curved display and wide-angle cameras that competes with Apple Inc.’s iPhone 11—contained no U.S. parts, according to an analysis by UBS and Fomalhaut Techno Solutions,...

    The New York Times ^ | 11 Nov 2019 | Adam Liptak
    A 1986 federal law makes it a crime to encourage unauthorized immigrants to come to or stay in the United States. The statute potentially criminalizes the simple words spoken to a son, a wife, a parent, a friend, a neighbor, a co-worker, a student, a client I encourage you to stay here, Judge A. Wallace Tashima wrote last year for a unanimous panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, in San Francisco, in striking down the law. The law applies to a grandmother urging a grandchild to overstay a visa or a lawyer...

    Despite the fact that natural gas is the cleanest of the fossil fuels hands down (and now the cheapest), liberals continue to oppose it. The “keep it in the ground” folks scored another victory this week when the city of San Jose California voted to ban natural gas lines and appliances in all new construction projects going forward. This is allegedly part of the state-mandated goal of going 100% “carbon-free” by 2045. Of course, as with all things, the devil is in the details. (CBS San Francisco) San Jose became the biggest U.S. city to ban natural gas in...

Similar state legislation is also being considered in Massachusetts and New York. The proposal comes just two weeks after a shooting left three people dead and injured more than 12 in Gilroy,...

For many at the diverse college, "the presence of U.S. Customs and Border Protection representatives on campus - regardless of...

    California Assemblyman Ash Kalra (D-San Jose) has introduced a bill that would ban high school biology classes from dissecting animals as part of their learning about anatomy. Kalra says that the current law allowing students with moral objections to opt out of the dissection lesson is unsatisfactory. For one, it still allows the callous exploitation of animals to go forward. Second, it allows students without moral scruples to receive a more complete education than their morally superior peers. The whole premise of these dissections is founded on an unwarranted notion that humans are more important than other creatures, Kalra observed....

Its the City of San Joses latest answer to help get its 4,000 homeless people off the streets, converting recycled shipping containers-into studio apartments. This is a type of modular construction that is an emerging market right now, said Rachel...
