American sex trafficking law makes sex workers here less safe, says activist

  American sex trafficking law makes sex workers here less safe, says activist Heather Jarvis says a shutdown of U.S. websites used by sex workers affects Canadians as well. FOSTA-SESTA, passed in the United States in April, is a package of laws that supporters and some politicians say will reduce sex trafficking and child sex exploitation by making it more difficult to find victims online.

A high-fiving Thai traffic cop who shrugs off the heat and the bemused glances of passers-by to wear a T - rex costume to work says his prehistoric uniform is teaching kids road safety and convincing parents to obey traffic laws.

Doyouthinkhesaurus : Thai ' T - Rex ' cop gives traffic safety lessons . Australia's ageing talisman Tim Cahill has endured a rocky road to his fourth World Cup but insists " given the chance, I'll always produce when it counts".

A high-fiving Thai traffic cop who shrugs off the heat -- and the bemused glances of passers-by -- to wear a T-rex costume to work says his prehistoric uniform is teaching kids road safety and convincing parents to obey traffic laws.

Sargent Tanit Bussabong has around 20 different outfits he reserves for traffic duty outside a kindergarten in Nakhon Nayok, a few hours outside Bangkok, including Minnie Mouse and a bear.

But he says the green, furry dinosaur outfit -- complete with tiny arms -- is "the most popular" with children and their parents.

A year after he first donned the costume, which makes him look as though he is riding a T-rex, Tanit says amused children are learning to trust authority and wait before crossing the road.

"They are happy, so am I," he told AFP, adding that their "parents are also developing more respect for traffic laws."

Tesla will start enabling full self-driving features in August .
Tesla has been promising true self-driving features in its cars for the better part of two years, but there has been precious little to show for it. Now, though, you might get what you paid for. Elon Musk has revealed that Autopilot version 9 should arrive in August, and Tesla will "begin to enable" the full autonomous driving features with that release. The company has "rightly focused entirely on safety" with previous versions, Musk said, but now it's time to spread its wings.
