Women arrested for bomb threats

Two SC women arrested over bomb threat to business, deputies announce

It’s time for news. We’ll take a look at the latest news, traffic and weather before you walk out the door. WE START 2024 NEWS WITH ENGAGEMENT. THIS MORNING. The stage is set for a showdown between President Biden and former President Trump. Both have agreed on two general election debates. The first debate will take place on June 27th and the second on September 10th, marking a break from tradition. THE CANDIDATES WHO WILL FACE IN PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE FOR THE COMMISSION TO FACE IN A TV STUDIO INSTEAD WITHOUT A LIVE AUDIENCE. THIS IS A HISTORICALLY EARLY SHOWDOWN THAT WILL SET THE TONE FOR THE FINAL MONTHS OF THE 2024 CAMPAIGN. INDEPENDENT PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE ROBERT F. KENNEDY JR. DOES SHE CURRENTLY PRETEND TO HAVE VOTED HIM TO STOP HIM FROM THE DEBATE. KENNEDY POSTED ON SOCIAL MEDIA. “They are excluding him because they are afraid he would win,” he added. Keeping viable candidates out of debates undermines democracy. KENNEDY DID NOT SPECIFY THE QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS FOR THE DEBATE, BUT CNN SAYS THE CANDIDATES MUST APPEAR ON A SUFFICIENT NUMBER OF THE STATE VOTES TO REACH THE 270 ELECTION VOTES AND ALSO GET AT LEAST 15% SUPPORT IN POLLS THAT DEB CNN ATTENDANCE STANDARDS ARE EQUIVALENT TO. THE QUALIFICATION DEADLINE IS SEVEN DAYS PRIOR TO THE DEBATE. CNN HAS LEARNED THAT EMPLOYEES WORKING FOR CHINA AND IRAN PREPARED FALSE AI-GENERATED CONTENT IN THE FINAL WEEKS OF THE 2020 ELECTIONS AS PART OF A CAMPAIGN TO INFLUENCE US VOTERS. CURRENT AND FORMER US OFFICIALS SAY THESE ACTIVITIES NEVER DISTRIBUTED THE DEEPFAKE AUDIO OR VIDEO PUBLICLY, BUT IT IS STILL UNCLEAR WHAT THEY HAD PREPARED OR WHY IT WAS FINALLY NOT USED. BUT YET DEEPFAKES ARE MUCH EASIER TO PRODUCE NOW THAN FOUR WEEKS OR FOUR YEARS AGO. Rather, U.S. officials are more concerned about how a foreign company could mislead voters. With the presidential election just six months away, the NATIONAL MUSIC PUBLISHERS ASSOCIATION is taking over streaming giant Spotify and has sent a cease-and-desist letter accusing Spotify of hosting content, including music videos, without having the appropriate license. CES OFFICIALS AT THE NMPA REQUEST SPOTIFY TO REMOVE THIS UNLICENSED MATERIAL OTHERWISE IT WILL BE SUBJECT TO COPYRIGHT LIABILITY FOR ANY CONTINUED USE OF THESE WORKS. This actually comes a few days after Billboard released an estimate that would see Spotify pay about $150 million less in royalties than some songwriters and publishers had expected. The Federal Aviation Administration reauthorized the permit and provided reimbursement for the next five years. The House of Representatives passed a bill last night to reauthorize the FAA ahead of Friday’s deadline. The MPs voted with 387 yes votes to 26 no votes. This package covers improved aviation safety and consumer protection, and this bill now heads to President Biden’s desk for his signature. OK.
