REHOBOTH BEACH, DE - JANUARY 2: Beach goer gather by the ocean the beach on an unseasonably warm day on January 2, 2021 in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, face masks are required on the boardwalk and strongly rec Delaware's low elevation mixed with crowded beaches and limited exit routes make the state particularly vulnerable to massive flooding, but officials hope an influx of federal infrastructure money will trigger future evacuation plans automatically via artificial intelligence.The Biden administration was set to announce a total of $53 million in grants Thursday to Delaware and seven other states aimed at high-tech solutions to traffic congestion problems.

Although the money comes from the infrastructure law the president signed in 2021, many of the programs — including the $5 million for flood response efforts in Biden's home state — have evolved since then."What's new is the predictive analysis; the machine learning," U.S.

Federal Highway Administrator Shailen Bhatt, Delaware's former transportation secretary, said in an interview with The Associated Press. "Because now we have access to all this data, it's hard for us as humans to figure out what is data and what is actionable information."Delaware officials pull off evacuation-type procedures every week during the tourism season, with long lines of cars headed to the beaches on weekend mornings and back at night.

COLOMBO (News 1st); The Centre for Policy Alternatives has expressed deep concern over the arrests of individuals under the ICCPR.The Centre for Policy Alternatives urges authorities to desist with efforts to restrict fundamental rights. The CPA noted that is deeply concerned with the recent arrest of Natasha Edirisooriya reportedly under the provisions of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights Act (ICCPR Act), the latest move to stifle freedom of speech in the guise of protecting religious harmony. CPA notes that this is not the only arrest under the ICCPR Act in recent times where persons have reportedly been arrested for content that pose a threat to religious and national harmony, and national security. CPA also notes media reports indicating the introduction of new laws meant to safeguard and uphold religious harmonyis in a context where there is a plethora of laws with the actual challenge not due to a lack of laws but to the lack of proper implementation of such laws and holding perpetrators accountable for incitement and violence. This is confirmed with Sri Lanka’s recent experiences where despite the availability of evidence, no action was taken against alleged perpetrators.CPA urges authorities to desist with efforts to restrict fundamental rights and measures that erode the rule of law and weaken Sri Lanka’s fragile peace.
