San Francisco is on track to become the first U.S. city to ban the use of facial recognition by police and other city agencies, reflecting a growing backlash against a technology that's creeping into airports, motor vehicle departments, stores, stadiums and home security cameras.

Government agencies around the U.S. have used the technology for more than a decade to scan databases for suspects and prevent identity fraud. But recent advances in artificial intelligence have created more sophisticated computer vision tools, making it easier for police to pinpoint a missing child or protester in a moving crowd or for retailers to analyze a shopper's facial expressions as they peruse store shelves.

Efforts to restrict its use are getting pushback from law enforcement groups and the tech industry, though it's far from a united front. Microsoft, while opposed to an outright ban, has urged lawmakers to set limits on the technology, warning that leaving it unchecked could enable an oppressive dystopia reminiscent of George Orwell's novel "1984."

Uber shares were down 8% in morning trading and dipped below $38 after the opening bell.

Monday was the first full day of trading for the ride-hailing company after its rocky debut on the stock market Friday. Its shares had been priced at $45 each.

It’s rare to see shares in a tech company hit so hard upon going public. Over the past five years, just 10% of similar companies finished their first day of trading below their IPO price, said Matt Kennedy, senior IPO market strategist at Renaissance Capital, a manager of IPO focused funds.

Uber’s revenue last year surged 42% to $11.3 billion, but the company admits it could be years before it turns a profit.

Google has been prototyping technology for foldable phones, but don't expect a folding version of the search giant's flagship Pixel phone or its cheaper Pixel 3A anytime soon. Phones with screens that bend and hinge have been touted as the future of smartphones, generating tons of hype and excitement with their ability to transform from a phone into a tablet.

Some of the early enthusiasm, however, has faded since the screens on review units of Samsung's Galaxy Fold began breaking. The embarrassment forced Samsung to postpone the release date for its $1,980 device, which was one of the first major foldables to be announced.

Google has also experimented with the foldable form, said Mario Queiroz, who leads development of Pixel phones, ahead of the search giant's I/O developer conference. But Google isn't in a rush to get a folding product to market.

The New York Times gave Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden free press Sunday because he hasn’t said anything stupid recently.

Biden is praised in the story, which was featured on the paper’s app Sunday night, for making it a few weeks into his presidential bid without going off message. “‘There He Goes Again?’ Not Yet, as Biden Avoids Major Gaffes,” the headline reads.

“Just over two weeks into Mr. Biden’s candidacy, the most notable feature of his campaign may be what hasn’t happened: He has not blurted anything out that delights his rivals, horrifies his aides and reinforces his image as ‘Uncle Joe,’ America’s there-he-goes-again relative who makes you smile and wince in equal measure,” reported The New York Times.

Police in Friendswood, Texas, said an employee at a local Domino’s snapped at – and even assaulted – a co-worker who revealed a spoiler for “Avengers: Endgame.”

Authorities in Friendswood posted the news to the town’s Facebook page in a “Police Activity Report” posted on Monday, confirming that police responded to the fast-food outlet on Sunday evening after receiving reports of an assault.

ustin Gregory Surface, 33, of Friendswood, was issued a citation for Assault by Contact after another employee revealed a spoiler about the movie, ‘End Game’ [sic],” the report reads.

A representative for Domino’s was not immediately available to comment on Sunday’s incident, although a local resident who spoke with KTRK called the incident both “hilarious” and “insane.”

On land, in the seas, in the sky, the devastating impact of humans on nature is laid bare in a compelling UN report.

One million animal and plant species are now threatened with extinction.

Nature everywhere is declining at a speed never previously seen and our need for ever more food and energy are the main drivers.

These trends can be halted, the study says, but it will take "transformative change" in every aspect of how humans interact with nature.

Two French soldiers have been killed in a military operation in the West African nation of Burkina Faso that freed four people from the U.S., France and South Korea who were kidnapped in neighboring Benin.

In a statement Friday, French President Emmanuel Macron expressed condolences for the two soldiers killed in the overnight operation. He thanked authorities in Burkina Faso and Benin for their cooperation in the mission and promised them support in fighting terrorism in the Sahel region.

The USS Arlington, which transports amphibious vehicles and aircraft, will join the USS Abraham Lincoln strike group in the Gulf, officials say.US B-52 bombers have also arrived at a base in Qatar, the Pentagon said it said the moves were a response to threats of possible operations against US forces in the region by Iran.

The US has given little information about the exact nature of the reported threat, which Iran has dismissed as nonsense, describing the deployments as "psychological warfare" aimed at intimidating the country.

The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that McGahn was asked within days of the release last month of special counsel's Robert Mueller's report to declare that the president had not taken steps to impede or obstruct the federal Russia probe.

But McGahn rebuffed those efforts, multiple sources told the Journal, saying the former counsel declined because he did not want to weigh in on the totality of the evidence uncovered by Mueller's probe beyond the testimony he had already given to the special counsel.

Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) said Friday that the Senate should investigate a planned trip from President Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine, where the former New York City mayor is pushing for a probe into former Vice President Joe Biden.

In a letter to Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Jim Risch (R-Idaho), Murphy called for the panel to send a query to the White House for details about Giuliani's reported efforts to persuade Ukrainian prosecutors not to abandon probes that Giuliani believes could turn up information beneficial to Trump.

In the latest salvo of a political battle widely expected to end in federal court, Neal issued separate subpoenas to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig that seek six years of Trump’s individual and business tax returns. The officials have until 5 p.m. EDT (2100 GMT) on May 17 to produce the material.

Trump is stonewalling oversight investigations by Neal and five other Democratic committee chairs in the House of Representatives, prompting Democrats to warn Trump officials that they could face contempt citations along with heavy fines and even impeachment by defying congressional subpoenas.

The parents of Andrew Freund, the 5-year-old boy found dead in a shallow grave near his suburban Chicago home about a week after his parents reported him missing, pleaded not guilty Friday to multiple charges, including murder.

JoAnn Cunningham, 36, and Andrew Freund Sr., 60, entered their pleas in a McHenry County court one day after a grand jury indicted them on 20 charges each, including three counts of murder and one count of concealing a death for the April 15 murder of their son.

Prince Harry is still feeling the loss of his beloved mother, especially now after the arrival of his firstborn.

The British royal traveled to the Netherlands on Thursday to launch the official countdown to the Invictus Games in The Hague next year, and he opened up to a friend, former soldier Dennis van der Stroon, during a bike ride.
