Legal Research Company ROSS to Shut Down Under Pressure of Thomson Reuters’ Lawsuit

ROSS Intelligence, a company that sought to innovate legal research through the use of artificial intelligence, and that helped to raise awareness of AI throughout the legal industry, is shutting down its operations, as a lawsuit against it by Thomson Reuters has crippled its ability to raise new financing or explore potential acquisition and left it without sufficient funds to operate.
“We have made the difficult decision to shut down operations at ROSS Intelligence,” the company said in a statement issued this morning (the full text of which is printed below). “As of Monday of this week, we have no longer been accepting new customers. As of January 31, 2021, the ROSS platform will no longer be available. Between now and then, our priority is to help our current customers transition to other services.”

Supreme Court rejects Texas lawsuit against Georgia

The U.S. Supreme Court Friday rejected Texas’ attempt to overturn the presidential election in Georgia and three other states.

Two justices – Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas – said they would have accepted the case but expressed no opinion on its merits.

The decision was not unexpected – the extraordinary effort by one state to overturn election results in other states was a long shot, albeit one supported by many Georgia Republican lawmakers. It’s the latest setback for the efforts by Trump and his supporters

The Expanse S5 review: The show is bigger, bolder, and better than ever

Enlarge / Space is mind-bogglingly big… but what happens there may not stay there.
The science fiction space opera is by now a well-known genre, and yet somehow The Expanse is hard to describe. Let me try to sum it up at its most basic: The Expanse is a show about space. It is a show about society, about resources, about people with passions and problems and desires and—most especially—about what happens when all those things collide.
It is also, in a word, excellent. The Expanse’s fifth season is the best since its first, a long-awaited high-stakes payoff to several seasons’ worth of setup. If you drifted away from the show during earlier seasons, like something accidentally dropped in microgravity, this new season makes it worth finding a way to come back.

The setup
For the first few seasons, The Expanse was concerned entirely with our own solar system. In its vision
