Midterm voting is continuing across the United States



Voting is continuing right across the United States for the 2022 midterm elections.

The Democrats are staring down the barrel of a red wave.

For two years, the party has held the House and the Senate, both of which could flip to the Republican party.

Polls suggest the Republicans will almost certainly take the House, while the the result in the Senate will come down to the wire.

More than 45 million Americans have already had their say in pre-election polling.

All 435 seats in the House are up for grabs, as well as 35 seats in the 100-member Senate, 36 state governorships, three U.S. territory governorships and a large number of city mayorships and local offices.

In a further 37 states, issues including laws on abortion, marijuana and voting rights are also up for a vote.

Pennsylvania is one of the nation’s key races to watch.

The state’s attorney general, Democrat Josh Shapiro, is facing off against Doug Mastriano for governor. Mastriano is a Trump-backed senator.

The winner in this race will be able to choose the state’s election officials for 2024 and alter voting restrictions.

Democrat John Fetterman and Republican Mehmet Oz battling for the state’s all-important Senate seat.

In Georgia, Democrat Raphael Warnock is up against Trump-backed football star Herschel Walker.

Walker stands by his anti-abortion views, despite claims from two women that he has paid for them both to terminate a pregnancy.

Republican Senator Lindsay Graham says there hasn’t been another candidate who has been dehumanised and bullied like Walker.

Trump-backed Republican and former TV news anchor Kari Lake is facing off against Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs for governor.

Lake is a Democrat who rose to prominence after fighting back against Trump’s election fraud claims.

In Texas, at the top of the ticket is the state’s current governor, Republican Greg Abbott.

Abbott is running for his third term against Democrat hopeful Beto O’Rourke.

O’Rourke has broken fundraising records against Abbott and has set up a tough challenge.

He wants to see marijuana legalised in the state.

Ukraine prepares for a summer of violence



Is support for the war waning after the conflict has surpassed 1-year and millions of dollars?

After a Russian air assault on Kyiv in which one civilian was killed, residential buildings in wealthy districts of Moscow were hit by multiple drone strikes injuring two people.

The Kremlin is claiming that most of the drone strikes which happened during broad daylight—were intercepted.

A Russian politician said the attack on the capital was the most dangerous since World War II.

Russia says Ukraine launched the attack and has vowed to bolster their air defenses.

Meanwhile, Ukraine is denying direct involvement, having just recently suffered three air attacks within a 24-hour time span.

Last month, leaked Department of Defense documents revealed possible weak links in Ukraine’s military campaign against Russian forces.

Russian President Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine with tens of thousands of troops more than a year ago and there appears to be no end in sight.

“I think there is a great risk”: will AI steal our jobs?



Artificial Intelligence has become an increasingly powerful and pervasive force in our modern world.

Artificial intelligence is not a new concept. However, the growing advancements have the potential to revolutionise industries, improve efficiency, and enhance the quality of life.

Along with its promising advancements, artificial intelligence also brings certain risks and challenges that must be acknowledged and addressed.

It has become the focus of lawmakers, who are working towards greater regulation of the sector.

U.S. and European Union officials recently met in Sweden to weigh up the benefits and challenges of artificial intelligence, and other emerging technologies.

“The AI process is creeping up on us,” said Dr Keith Suter, who is a global futurist.

“You’ve got competition between companies.”

It’s almost like some of us can see this raft that’s heading towards the rapids and a disappearance towards the waterfall, and we’re giving a warning but it’s not being heeded because everybody’s in this race to get down to the river,” Dr Suter said.
