Thomson Reuters The revelation that the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes, was on White House grounds the day before he briefed President Trump on executive branch documents related to surveillance of his transition team has fueled speculation that the White House itself was Nunes' source. Nunes, who was a member of President Donald Trump's transition team, said on Monday that he went to the White House to view the classified documents Congress doesn't have "networked access" to those reports, and insisted that no one from the White House knew he was there. Nunes' spokesman... [Read More]

Thomson Reuters President Donald Trump is expected to issue an executive order Tuesday that will attack the heart of former President Barack Obama's climate legacy: the Clean Power Plan. The order will set the Environmental Protection agency on course to scrap the regulation, and begin dismantling the federal government's policies for addressing climate change. That would bend the curve of US greenhouse gas emissions upward. And like any move from an impactful president, its biggest consequences would likely be felt not in the next year but in the coming decades and centuries. What does the order... [Read More]

Reuters/Bobby Yip Bitcoin has slid into negative territory after the US Securities and Exchange Commission rejected the plans for the SolidX Bitcoin ETF. The cryptocurrency is down 0.7% at $1,033 a coin. It was as high as $1,066 earlier on Tuesday. The regulator cited the fact that bitcoin is traded on unregulated markets, which means the SEC wouldn't be able to prevent fraud or market manipulation. In its ruling the SEC said: "As discussed further below, the Commission is disapproving this proposed rule change because it does not find the proposal to be consistent with... [Read More]

On Tuesday, Amazon Web Services, the online retailer's massively profitable cloud computing arm, introduced AWS Connect — a new service that lets businesses set up their own call centers built on Amazon's own customer service tech. There are two big things to note with the launch of AWS Connect. First, it's just another example of how aggressive Amazon can be when it breaks into new markets. There are lots of call center software companies out there, some of which require expensive switchboard hardware to get started.

Even though he's a Marvel character, Sony has owned the rights... [Read More]

While China has increased its presence in the Middle East as of late, it... [Read More]

Marine Corps via 1st Lt. Dominic Pitrone The US's Camp Lemonnier, a special-operations outpost in the sweltering East African country of Djibouti, will soon have a new neighbor. China will open a new naval base — what it has called "logistical support" facilities — nearby, bringing the US into closer proximity with a rival power than some officers have ever experienced. "You would have to characterize it as a military base," Marine Gen. Thomas Waldhauser, chief of US Africa Command, told reporters in Washington this week. "It's a first for them. They've never had an... [Read More]

Earbuds are the most convenient headphones on the market. They're small enough to fit in your pocket, but can pack a punch since they sit inside your ear.
