Up until last week, Tilman Fertitta had made a mildly bad impression as owner of the Rockets. He gets the “mildly” modifier because plenty of other owners have done the same. He loves to talk to the media, whether it be to publicly doubt Daryl Morey, perhaps the most innovative and successful GM in the league, or complain about his players.
Announced in an email to participating students on Tuesday, Aug. 20, the decision was made after weeks of monitoring and consideration of the political situation and ongoing protests. It is unclear if BOSP will launch the program in fall 2020.
On Wednesday, He Jiankui — a former postdoctoral fellow at Stanford who claims to have created the world’s first genetically edited babies — was spotted for the first time since announcing the experiments on Nov. 28.

Mr. Sur’s caricature of democracy in Hong Kong bastardizes their decades-long fight for the right to representative government.
Other than sharing headlines for the past couple of weeks, the crisis over ISIS and the Hong Kong protests seem like very disparate situations.
