Next time POTUS needs to talk space with China, it’ll be a straightforward process: it turns out Washington and Beijing now have an emergency “space hotline” to ensure conflicts don’t arise.
The Secret Service hasn't been doing an awesome job guarding the White House lately, so Joseph Clancy, its director, plans to ask the House Appropriations Committee for $8 million so that president's guard can build a replica White House on the Secret Service training grounds in southern Maryland.
So, now that we've reviewed which U.S. presidents in history did the most to advance science, let's turn our attention to which presidents have done the most for math — and the time U.S. president James Garfield wrote a proof for the Pythagorean Theorem.
Yesterday, Bradley Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison for crimes related to stealing government documents and sharing them with WikiLeaks. Now, you can read the letter he's sending to the President to state his case.
Before President Barack Obama gave his State of the Union and shouted out 3D printing, he signed a new cybersecurity executive order with the goal of preventing cyber attacks by allowing companies and the government to share information they have on cyber threats.
It ain't easy being the leader of the free world. This is true on the face of the President of the United States of America Barack Obama and all the previous Presidents as well. Once you land the gig of head American honcho, the hair starts going gray, the wrinkles start getting deeper and life looks like it has…
Looking to get a jump on the history books? Science fiction already has a complete list of the men, women, and murderous aliens who occupy the White House in this bright new 21st century.
You'd think the laptop used by the president who first sent an email while in office would end up in the Smithsonian, or at the least, somewhere in the White House. But this Toshiba Satellite Pro which President Bill Clinton used to send an email to orbiting astronaut John Glenn on November 7, 1998 is up for grabs on…
A giant, riled up crowd of people. Political tension. The need for superhigh security is never great than it is at a political convention.
Abraham Lincoln was one of the most celebrated and mysterious presidents in the in U.S. (maybe this is why he made such an excellent vampire hunter.) His assassination sent a nation into mourning, and was followed by a two week funeral tour by train car. But Lincoln's body did not find rest at the end of this…
The President is on vacation in Martha's Vineyard right now. Whoo! Or not? Well, however upset/indifferent this makes you, it's doing one amazing thing. Obama has brought the gift of decent cell service to the citizens. It's like Christmas!
Seems like everyone is up President Obama's ass for something these days. Too much war. Not enough war. Too much spending. Not enough spending. This guy can't win. His rapidly graying hair is proof of that.
For anyone who might have complained about the quality of our sitting president's addresses, you can write your own with the Obama Board Keyboard. Featured at Maker Faire Detroit, you can remix choice lines from Obama's 2009 inauguration speech to write your own.
President Obama is officially tweeting on his own Twitter account. He started today. The first, first tweet unfolded like this:
Last night's New Hampshire GOP debate was a fierce one. Healthcare, war, jobs, pizza—it was all on the line, and not one candidate pulled any punches when it came to the tough questions. Like choice in smartphones. Ugh.
All the world may want a peek at the Osama bin Laden execution photos, but sorry, sickies — you'll just have to settle for a second-hand account from Sen. James Inhofe and his Cryptkeeper-like attention to gruesome detail. But nowhere in the reams of analysis of the president's decision to withhold the pictures did…
I am non discriminatory towards beer, hell, I drink our domestic water-flavored beer with a smile on my face. But I really want to try George Washington's personal beer recipe. Even if's no good, it's freaking POTUS Beer 1.0.
This isn't news. Not at all, in fact. I just found the story so very interesting. As it has been since the Reagan era, photographers weren't allowed to take pictures during live televised speeches given by the President. So how did we end up with still pictures? Well, Obama reenacted the speech for them!
While in Chicago wooing fat cat donors with deep pockets, President Obama took a few moments to talk technology, and opine on the state of his personal gadgets in the Oval Office. Short version: He wants better shit because he's the president.
