Havana sidewalk transforms into art gallery for XIII Biennal

More than a kilometer of a coastal sidewalk in Havana is turned into an art gallery as part of the city’s XIII Biennal arts event, which is expected to bring together some 500 Cuban artists and 300 more from around the world. The project named ‘Behind the Wall,’ comprising works of more than 60 artists, is one exhibit in the month-long event.

Inside Steve Bannon’s Town Hall For A Privately Funded Border Wall (HBO)

While President Trump continued to battle with Congress over funding for building the border wall with Mexico, his former chief strategist Steve Bannon was out in Arizona to back a do-it-yourself approach.

Once the planet’s most powerful political strategist with access to the Oval Office, Bannon is now raising money to fulfill Trump’s signature campaign promise. On Friday he headlined an event at the banquet hall of a retirement community in Arizona to raise private funds for a border wall — made out of hemp. So far the project has raised an astonishing $22 million from small donors in just over a month.

He wants the wall to be technologically state-of-the-art. “I’m obsessed with the hempcrete,” Bannon said, referring to a concrete-like construction material made from hemp. “I think this plant has got tremendous entrepreneurial aspects to it and it’s innovation. We’re not sitting there saying, ‘Hey, just a concrete wall or just a steel barrier.’ It has to be advanced technology.”

VICE News joined Bannon and the team behind ‘We Build the Wall’ to learn how they plan to side-step Washington and build their own wall.

DARPA ERI Summit 2018: Another Brick in the Wall

DARPA ERI Summit 2018: Another Brick in the Wall
Dr. Erica Fuchs, Professor, Engineering and Public Policy, Carnegie Mellon University

ERI Overview
On June 1, 2017, DARPA’s Microsystems Technology Office (MTO) announced its Electronics Resurgence Initiative (ERI) to ensure far-reaching improvements in electronics performance well beyond the limits of traditional scaling. Recognizing challenges to keeping on pace with Moore’s Law, ERI draws both on new (“Page 3”) and existing (“Foundational”) DARPA programs to make a significant investment into enabling circuit specialization and managing complexity. Page three of Gordon Moore’s seminal 1965 paper described research areas required to manage the technical and economic challenges we face. In deference to Moore’s ideas, ERI’s “Page 3” investments support research and development in each of these areas: Architectures, Designs, and Materials and Integration. To fully unlock microelectronics innovation and maintain technical superiority for the Department of Defense (DoD), ERI builds on the tradition of other successful government-industry partnerships and aims to forge forward-looking collaborations among the commercial electronics community, defense industrial base, university researchers, and DoD.

US & the Wall: Deportees in Mexico unwanted by either side after decades in the US (RT Documentary)

As a candidate in the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump promised to build a wall between the US and Mexico to stem illegal immigration. The idea immediately sparked a sharp reaction, with his supporters cheering him on, and his opponents denouncing him as racist. The fierce debate has thrown a spotlight on America’s southern border, which separates not only two countries, but often families as well.

In The Mexican Wall, you’ll meet a number of people that have found themselves on opposite sides of this divide, both geographically and ideologically. On the American side, follow a group of ex-military and police volunteers called Arizona Border Recon as they patrol the desert in an attempt close off narco-traffic, while another group nearby known as Border Angels leaves water and food to ease the way of illegal crossers.

On the other side, you’ll see how those deported back to Mexico after decades living in the US must adjust to a new reality in a crime-ridden country where they know no one. Not even US military veterans are exempt from this fate if they are caught driving drunk or bounce a check.
Most painful for those affected, however, is knowing that their children are growing up and parents growing old while they are stuck on the opposite side of the border with no role in their lives.
Watch this new RT Docs film to see how “The Wall” has come to symbolize the widening political and ideological divisions within the US and the plight of those affected by the new president’s harsher immigration policies.
