Is the new Ford Bronco the next great go-anywhere adventure camper?
Camping off the beaten path is highly popular at the moment, and rugged 4x4s make for some of the best off-grid mini-campers, taking care of both overland travel and comfy(ish) accommodations. Land Rover realized it when it launched the new Defender with available outdoor accessory packs and a custom roof-top tent, but at $50K to start, the Defender isn't exactly the type of vehicle we'd want to ding and dirty on weekly camping adventures. The new Ford Bronco family is more that speed, and Ford is already thinking about how to transform its latest utility vehicles into overlanding and weekend camping rigs with a full accessory line of its own.

Office 365: A guide to the updates
Office 365 and Microsoft 365 subscribers always have the latest version of Microsoft Office — currently Office 2019. They also get more frequent software updates than those who have purchased Office 2019 without a subscription, which means subscribers have access to the latest features, security patches and bug fixes. But it can be hard to keep track of the changes in each update and know when they're available. We're doing this for you, so you don't have to.

Following are summaries of the updates to Office 365/Microsoft 365 for Windows, with the latest releases shown first. We'll add info about new updates as they're rolled out.

Note: This story covers updates released to regular Office 365/Microsoft 365 for Windows subscribers. If you're a member of Microsoft's Office Insider preview program or want to get a sneak peek at upcoming features, see the company's "Release notes for Office for Windows Desktop (Beta builds)" page.

Trump: ‘More White People' Are Killed by Cops and How Dare Anyone Suggest Blacks Have it Bad
Following weeks of nationwide protests over a spate of police killings of Black people, President Donald Trump has claimed that "more white people" actually die at the hands of law enforcement.The president made the comment after appearing to briefly lose it when asked about the hot button topic in a CBS News interview."Why are African-Americans still dying at the hands of law enforcement in this country?" host Catherine Herridge asked, prompting the president to immediately recoil."So are white people. So are white people! What a terrible question to ask," he huffed. "So are white people."Studies have shown that Black men are about 3.5 times more likely than white men to die in police custody. White men were killed by the police in the highest numbers between 2013 and 2017, but white people account for a greater percentage of the U.S. population than Black people, according to a Harvard study.Trump has made white grievance politics and the culture war a centerpiece of his re-election push in recent weeks, defending Confederate memorials and military bases named after Confederate generals even as he derides those who took part in anti-racism protests as "bad, evil people" seeking to destroy the country.  Beyond that, he's targeted the only full-time Black NASCAR driver, Bubba Wallace, falsely accusing him of perpetrating a hate-crime "hoax" after a suspected noose was discovered in his garage at Alabama's Talladega Superspeedway last month.

After unleashing the "RDNA"-based Radeon RX 5000-series late last year, AMD has spent a good chunk of 2020 ironing out the kinks that come with an all-new graphics architecture. AMD released a big bug-stomping driver in February after the press amplified community complaints, then spent the last several months diligently plugging away at remaining issues. And the newest Radeon driver makes it easier than ever to report graphics card woes directly to AMD.

Radeon Software Adrenalin 20.7.1 integrates a new standalone bug-reporting utility that "has been designed to automatically capture users' system hardware and software configurations," per AMD representatives. "Users need only provide a simple description of the issue, along with any media attachment they may wish to include, such as an image, video or link."

Fish can't connect remotely, so he logs on locally. A review of the event log shows him that the SYSTEM user permission has been disabled for the C: drive.

"After adding it back on, everything runs properly," says fish.

But why had it gone missing? "Come to find out that one of the VPs had asked to be added to the domain admin group," reports fish. "After getting his new privileges he decided that, since he did not know who the SYSTEM user was, they should not have access to the C: drive.

"Needless to say, his admin privileges were yanked shortly after, and all the other servers were reviewed for potential changes."
