The Washington National Cathedral has a 3.6-billion-year-old piece of space. The Washington Monument wasn't meant to be 2 colors. Six years later, the Washington National Monument Society ran out of money, and construction stopped for the next 25 years. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and the commissioners of DC judged the competition. The Thomas Jefferson Memorial was originally a monument site for Theodore Roosevelt.

The team around Trump is hollowed out, with the White House counsel's office not drawing up a legal defense plan and the legislative affairs team largely abandoned. WASHINGTON (AP) — His place in the history books about to be rewritten, President Donald Trump awaited his second impeachment — something no other president has faced — largely alone and silent. Trump kept out of sight in a nearly empty White House as impeachment proceedings played out at the heavily fortified Capitol. There were lawyers, White House messaging meetings, and a media blitz run by allies on conservative television, radio and websites. But there was no effort from the White House to line up votes in the president's defense.

It sounded reasonable, provided the Google team could rein in the costs and make the sensors reliable. But it didn't take him long to imagine what a working self-driving car could do for his business. Either way, after seven and a half years with Google, Urmson wanted a change. In March 2018, a few weeks after the lawsuit with Waymo ended, a self-driving Uber car hit and killed a woman in Tempe, Arizona. Subsequent reports revealed not just that the effort had a shoddy safety culture, but that it had made little progress toward a self-driving car.

It sounded reasonable, provided the Google team could rein in the costs and make the sensors reliable. But it didn't take him long to imagine what a working self-driving car could do for his business. "We need to fire Anthony Levandowski," Urmson told some colleagues in an August 4 email that was later introduced in court. In March 2018, a few weeks after the lawsuit with Waymo ended, a self-driving Uber car hit and killed a woman in Tempe, Arizona. Subsequent reports revealed not just that the effort had a shoddy safety culture, but that it had made little progress toward a self-driving car.

Levandowski had been sidelined at Google in favor of Chris Urmson, his onetime roommate and longtime rival. Years of infighting and indecision within Google's team — much of it centered on Levandowski and Urmson — had left the search giant vulnerable to competitors. Core members of Google's self-driving team included Chris Urmson, far left, and Levandowski, far right. By 2016, Uber's self-driving research team was hot on Google's tail, and CEO Travis Kalanick was desperate to close the gap. Davies interviewed more than 120 people and spent years charting the messy evolution of the self-driving car industry, a story filled with technological breakthroughs, trade secret thievery, stupid t-shirts, and more.

President Donald Trump issued executive actions at a brisk pace through his one term in office. Often mistakenly referred to under the blanket term of executive orders, there are actually three types of presidential actions — orders, memoranda, and proclamations. Each has different authority and effects, with executive orders bearing the most teeth and debate over their constitutionality. Insider broke down all of President Donald Trump's executive orders since he took office and sorted them by category. Here's a look at all of the executive actions Trump put his Sharpie to since 2017:Though they're often all mistakenly called "executive orders," there are technically three types of presidential actions — orders, memoranda, and proclamations.

President-elect Joe Biden's inaugural address is coming up on January 20th. Joe Biden is preparing next month to deliver a presidential inaugural speech unlike any other in modern US history. But this Biden speech is sure to be different than any of those previous ones. When Biden delivers his inaugural address, Americans will be looking for signals of what's to come under his leadership. And even if the words Biden is supposed to say sing like Shakespeare, it's anyone's guess how much he sticks to the script.
