What’s Next for Trump
Hi everyone and happy Thursday, Jonathan here at Notice HQ in Brooklyn. Our top story today:
Donald Trump struck a defiant tone after becoming the first former president to face criminal charges in U.S history.
So, what happens next? Our Washington correspondent Angie has the story.
Trump: “The only crime that I’ve committed is to fearlessly defend our nation from those who seek to destroy it.”
Angie: That’s former President Donald Trump addressing supporters at his Florida estate, just hours after his arraignment in a New York City court on dozens of business fraud charges.
The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office has accused the 45th President of creating false business records to keep damaging personal stories from getting out in the run-up to the 2016 election.
On Tuesday, Trump appeared in court, pleaded not guilty, and returned to Florida, where he painted his indictment as an act of political revenge.
Trump: “They can’t beat us at the ballot box, so they try to beat us through the law.”
So — where does this case go from here?
The next hearing has been set for December 4, and until then, Trump’s attorneys will be able to access the prosecution’s evidence and build their defense.
This is part of the legal process that’s called discovery.
We’re still several months away before a jury is selected, witnesses are impaneled, and a verdict is ultimately decided… if the case isn’t somehow dismissed outright.
Prosecutors want the trial to begin in January, but Trump’s team has suggested a start date of spring 2024.
That means Trump – who remains the front runner for the Republican nomination for president – may be on trial early next year – while running for president.
Trump: “With all of this being said, and with a very dark cloud over beloved country, I have no doubt that we will nevertheless Make America Great Again.”
Wisconsin voters elected a liberal judge to the state’s Supreme Court this week, giving liberals a 4-3 majority on the court. Experts say that majority on the court could potentially expand abortion rights there.
Students in Nashville staged massive demonstrations to demand an end to gun violence and stricter gun control laws. The protests came after 6 people died in a school shooting there last week. And…
Elon Musk is no longer the richest person alive, as fashion industry executive Bernard Arnault of France has claimed that title.
The 74 year old is the CEO of LVMH, the parent company of 70 high-end brands, and has a fortune of 211 billion dollars.
The Next Leap for A.I.?
Have you ever wanted to create a video without a camera, props, location, or even any prior editing skills? Well, thanks to new artificial intelligence technology, soon you might be able to do just that.
A New York start-up called Runway AI is among several companies developing AI technology that can generate videos with just a few typed words on a computer screen.
Imagine typing “a tranquil river in the forest” and having a video of a river in a forest generated in less than two minutes.
Video-generation systems like this are part of a race by large companies like Microsoft and Google, as well as some smaller companies, to create new kinds of artificial intelligence systems that some believe could be as important as web browsers or the iPhone.
AI video-generation systems could speed up the work of movie makers and other digital artists, while also becoming a new and quick way to create hard-to-detect online misinformation, making it even harder to tell what’s real on the internet.
These systems are part of what is known as generative AI, which can instantly create text, images, and sounds.
By analyzing digital data, such as photos, videos, and captions, these systems can rapidly improve and expand their skills.
Soon, experts believe they will be able to generate professional-looking mini-movies, complete with music and dialogue.
Tools like this could mean we are on the verge of a new era in video editing and creation, though it isn’t without potential risks.
That’s it for today – but let’s see how closely you were paying attention. Go take the Notice News quiz on our website noticenews.com.
