APTN National News The mayor of a small Saskatchewan town issued an apology to the head of the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations Tuesday for his past prejudices against Indigenous peoples.Rob Hundeby was in Saskatoon on Tuesday afternoon to sign a memorandum of understanding with Cameron and the FSIN.“You can’t have hatred boil up,” Hundeby said. “You have to seek forgiveness, whether you’ve been wronged or you wronged somebody else.”They want to start a new education initiative in the community to help teach youth and elected officials about racial inclusion and move toward reconciliation.Hundeby said when he was growing up, the stereotype of Indigenous people was that they were lazy and didn’t want jobs.Hundeby said the birth of his children and re-examining his Christian faith led to a shift in thinking, and he now knows he was wrong.Chief Bobby Cameron praised the apology saying it took a lot of heart and courage.Cameron said Hundeby approached him after hearing his speech about reconciliation to the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association.Cameron encouraged the mayor to make his apology a public one.While Elbow town council unanimously approved the signing, Hundeby doesn’t know how his constituents will react.“I don’t know how this is going to be perceived,” he said. “It’s a leap of faith.”Elbow is 133 kilometres southeast of Saskatoon.email@example.com— with files from the Canadian Press
4 More From Roadshow Autonomous Vehicles Trucks Self-driving trucks have the chance to transform the logistics industry, and even the federal government is working to determine how well the tech can work in its nascent stages.The United States Postal Service will begin a two-week pilot program that will put self-driving trucks to work delivering mail. The USPS will use trucks from TuSimple, a startup working to bring the first commercial self-driving semi to market. The pilot program will consist of five round trips ferrying USPS trailers between Phoenix and Dallas, each leg covering more than 1,000 miles. The trucks will be driven along the I-10, I-20 and I-30 interstates, and the drives will take place at all hours of the day and night. Like many other AV pilot programs, there will be a safety engineer and driver on board to monitor the truck and, if necessary, take command.Enlarge ImageIt’s unclear if the trucks will carry USPS branding, or if the cabs will sport the same TuSimple getup seen here. TuSimple TuSimple said that this kind of trip is exactly what self-driving trucks are made for. Each 22-hour leg, with a short turnaround time, would usually require two drivers working in tandem and sharing some awfully close confines. Using AVs would eliminate the need to bathe in another person’s musk for nearly a full day at a time, which seems like a benefit. Of course, the USPS sees benefits beyond smell. “This pilot is just one of many ways the Postal Service is innovating and investing in its future,” said a USPS spokesperson in an emailed statement. “We are conducting research and testing as part of our efforts to operate a future class of vehicles which will incorporate new technology to accommodate a diverse mail mix, enhance safety, improve service, reduce emissions, and produce operational savings.”Driver shortages are hitting the logistics industry in a big way. American Trucking Association statistics estimate that the industry could be short some 175,000 drivers by 2024, so it’s a good time for self-driving trucks to start making moves.

(PhysOrg.com) — Google has announced a new software development program that lets anyone develop an application for Android devices; it’s called the App Inventor for Android. Google says the software is intended to allow any smartphone user develop Android applications without having any prior knowledge of programming languages. Since Google App Inventor provides access to GPS-location sensor, you can build location apps to determine where you are. You can build a useful app that will show you where you parked your car; never forget where you’re car is parked anymore.According to DailyTech, the New York Times states that Harold Abelson is the Google project leader. Harold Abelson is a computer scientist from MIT on sabbatical at Google. Abelson said, “The goal is to enable people to become creators, not just consumers, in this mobile world.” Abelson also stated, “We could only have done this because Android’s architecture is so open.”The App Inventor was tested by women, sixth grade students, nursing students and many others, none of them majoring in computer science.• PhysOrg.com Android apps (new version available) Google Android Application Inventor makes just about anyone a DIY Android App inventor Inserting buttons, blocks and customizing screen colors is just a click away.
