India joins Trump's trade war, announcing $241 million in tariffs

The Trump trade wars continue to expand, with India joining a host of other nations in imposing tariffs on the United States in retaliation for Donald Trump imposing tariffs on them. India is affected by Trump’s steel and aluminum tariffs, and has announced its own tariffs of $241 million—matching the U.S. tariffs—to retaliate. Almonds, walnuts and apples grown in the U.S. would be targeted under India’s plan, and an existing tariff on large American motorcycles (translation: Harley-Davidsons, except Harley has a factory in India anyway) would be increased. Shrimp and chocolate are also on the list. India joins Canada, Mexico, the European Union and China in retaliating against the tariffs Trump is using to posture about his own toughness.

What’s under those clothes? This system tracks body shapes in real time

With augmented reality coming in hot and depth tracking cameras due to arrive on flagship phones, the time is right to improve how computers track the motions of people they see — even if that means virtually stripping them of their clothes. A new computer vision system that does just that may sound a little creepy, but it definitely has its uses.

Report: Kings not trading No. 2 pick to Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers have a couple of intriguing draft picks coming up on Thursday, but they’re not enough to pry away the No. 2 overall pick from the Sacramento Kings.The Los Angeles Times’ Brad Turner reported on Monday that the Kings are not interested in trading the No. 2 pick for the Clippers’ Nos. 12 and 13 picks. The Phoenix Suns have the No. 1 overall pick and many expect them to take Arizona’s Deandre Ayton. That would leave the Kings with their choice of a number of talented prospects. Many think they will opt for Luka Doncic, but guys like Marvin Bagley III and Michael Porter Jr. should also be in the mix. Those players have All-Star and cornerstone potential, which is something the Kings desperately need and likely explains why they wouldn’t want to move down 10 spots.Here’s our list of 10 prospects who will make an immediate impact.
