Three weeks after OpenAI's board briefly pushed out CEO Sam Altman without providing a specific reason for its decision, former director Reid Hoffman says he's still puzzled by what took place and why. He stepped down from OpenAI's board in March and said he hasn't spoken with any of the board members, though he said he did communicate with Altman. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella offered to hire Altman, OpenAI president Greg Brockman and their colleagues in a new advanced AI research group. "I do think that we're in a much better place in the world" to have Altman in the CEO seat again, Hoffman said. WATCH: Sam Altman returns as OpenAI CEO and Microsoft secures nonvoting board seat

WASHINGTON (AP) — Rep. George Santos of New York is facing a critical vote to expel him from the House on Friday as lawmakers weigh whether his actions, fabrications and alleged lawbreaking warrant the chamber's most severe punishment. “I will not stand by quietly,” Santos declared on the House floor Thursday as lawmakers debated his removal. But some Republicans, including Santos' colleagues from New York, said voters will welcome lawmakers being held to a higher standard. In early March, the House Ethics Committee announced it was launching an investigation into Santos. ___Follow the AP's coverage of U.S. Rep. George Santos of New York at

5G and other connections will also power access to the venues: The 2024 Paris Olympics will be the first to operate solely with digital — not paper — tickets. The opening ceremony will also use 5G: At the Paris Olympics, instead of the traditional parade around a stadium, the athletes will move down the Seine River in boats. "Ahead of the Olympic Games, Orange is reinforcing its 5G coverage across France, including on all Olympics sites," he added. But the 5G mobile capacity won't just be useful for those who want to share moments. "Our 5G mobile capacity will also allow additional services, such as haptic tablets for blind people to follow the events in real-time," Rojat said.

But researchers have found that when someone does admit they were wrong, they are not seen as less competent. As a psychology expert, I've found that highly likable and successful are "admitters," and they aren't afraid to say three simple words: "I was wrong." The key is to remind yourself that even though your behavior was wrong, you can change it in the future. And just because you are admitting wrongdoing, that doesn't mean you are saying you're a bad person. When someone tells you that you're wrong, instead of immediately jumping to the defensive, get curious about why they're saying that to you.

When it comes to emotional spending, "the deck is stacked against us," says financial psychologist and certified financial planner Brad Klontz. Roughly 75% of both millennials and Gen Z admit to emotional spending, possibly because they're less likely to think about their retirement funds when clicking "buy." "But as you're pulling the trigger, you're pretty excited about this thing you're buying." While emotional spending is a common habit, it's not one you want to turn into a bigger problem. Nearly 40% of emotional spenders say they've gone into debt because of it, and Klontz warns of the stress that emotional spending can put on your finances and relationships.

"I was never going to be good at working for someone else," the billionaire investor and owner of the NBA's Dallas Mavericks told Wired in a video Q&A last month. But, it wasn't until he was in his mid-20s that Cuban launched his first actual company, the software startup MicroSolutions. As Cuban told Wired, he asked a high-ranking executive to speak to a group of young employees at a happy hour about "what it's like to work at the bank." "I thought that was a really cool idea and I was taking initiative," Cuban told Wired. "I was a lousy employee because I was a know-it-all," he told Wired.

Details of these verbal assurances stipulated that OpenAI employees who quit would receive the same amount of total compensation they receive at OpenAI should they be hired by Microsoft. What Microsoft can and can't do comes down to what CEO Satya Nadella wants to see happen at his company, a Microsoft employee said. Ultimately, a move to Microsoft is not what OpenAI employees really wish to happen. Although everyone who signed the letter has shown they are willing to work for Microsoft, so long as Altman is there, too, they have little desire to work there. The company is enormous compared to OpenAI, with a reputation for bureaucracy, slower work and lower pay, one of the employees said.

Quitting your job to start a business can be both tempting and extremely risky. Make sure you have a safety net before taking the leap, says billionaire entrepreneur and investor Mark Cuban. Don't just leave [your job] unless you know what the hell you're doing," Cuban told Wired last month in a video Q&A. "We hear all of these stories about all of these people who quit their jobs, started a company and made all of this money," Cuban said. "What you don't hear are the stories of the people who quit their jobs, started a company and failed miserably, and are now working at a job they hate."

Santos easily survived an expulsion vote earlier this month as lawmakers in both parties stressed the need to allow due process, as Santos is also facing nearly two dozen charges in federal court. The Ethics Committee referred its findings to the Justice Department, serving up new evidence that could potentially play into the federal charges against Santos. Several other members of the Ethics panel have also come out in favor of expulsion now that the investigation is complete. The Ethics panel appointed to investigate Santos met nine times over the course of its investigation, interviewed more than 40 witnesses and authorized 37 subpoenas. The panel also described Santos as uncooperative with their investigation, declining to voluntarily testify or provide a statement under oath.
