Uber said it would appeal the decision on Tuesday by Judge Eduardo Rockenbach Pires at the regional labor court in Sao Paulo, which was made public in recent days.

    King of Saudi Arabia congratulates Trump on Syrian air strikes

    Saudi monarch King Salman has congratulated Donald Trump for his "courageous decision" to carry out a missile strike on Syria. The official Saudi Press Agency reported that Salman spoke to the US president by telephone on Friday. Saudi Arabia said the missile launch by Mr Trump was the right response to "the crimes of this regime to its people in light of the failure of the international community to stop it".

    Trump lifts ban on hunting hibernating bears

    The state of Alaska is home to 16 U.S. national wildlife refuges and a vast variety of iconic animals — two of which are now fair game for hunters. A joint bill from the U.S. House and Senate, signed off by President Donald Trump on Monday, revokes an Obama-era rule that bans "predator control" hunting on Alaska's refuges. The ban protected hibernating bears from being hunted, along with wolf cubs in dens. It also protected these animals from being targeted from helicopters.

    Russia Sends Frigate to Mediterranean Following U.S. Retaliation Strike; U.S. Destroyers Remain On Station

    The Russian Navy has sent its most advanced Black Sea frigate into the Eastern Mediterranean on Friday following a U.S. missile strike on a Syrian airfield, according to ship spotters in Turkey. Guided missile frigate Admiral Grigorovich – based in Sevastopol, Crimea – passed through the Bosporus Strait early Friday into the Mediterranean only hours after two U.S. guided missile destroyers fired 59 Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles that targeted the al-Shayrat Airfield in central Syria.

    Neil Gorsuch Confirmed by Senate as Supreme Court Justice

    Judge Neil M. Gorsuch was confirmed by the Senate on Friday to become the 113th justice of the Supreme Court, capping a political brawl that lasted for more than a year and tested constitutional norms inside the Capitol’s fraying upper chamber. The development was a signal triumph for President Trump, whose campaign last year rested in large part on his pledge to appoint another committed conservative to succeed Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in February 2016. However rocky the first months ...

    Trump plays the villain in trailer for 'An Inconvenient Truth' sequel

    "Climate changes. Truth does not." That's the tagline for An Inconvenient Sequel, the follow-up to Al Gore's 2007 documentary An Inconvenient Truth. The documentary — which debuted at Sundance Film Festival — released its first trailer on Tuesday, and it couldn't be more timely. President Trump plays a prominent role in the trailer, which dropped on the same day that the president signed an executive order aimed at rolling back the Obama Administration's climate...

    Trump’s War on Terror Has Quickly Become as Barbaric and Savage as He Promised

    From the start of his presidency, Donald Trump’s “war on terror” has entailed the seemingly indiscriminate slaughter of innocent people in the name of killing terrorists. In other words, Trump has escalated the 16-year-old core premise of America’s foreign policy — that it has the right to bomb any country in the world where people it regards as terrorists are found — and in doing so, has fulfilled the warped campaign pledges he repeatedly expressed.

    North Korea blasts Trump for being too much like Obama

    North Korea has a criticism of U.S. President Donald Trump he probably wasn’t expecting: He’s too much like Barack Obama. North Korea’s state media, which regularly vilified Obama in the strongest terms, had been slow to do the same with the Trump administration, possibly so that officials in Pyongyang could figure out what direction Trump will likely take and what new policies he may pursue. But his top diplomat’s recent trip to Asia, which featured some pretty tough talk, appears to ha...

    Man burns down parents' house, kills pets while trying to exterminate ants

    Maine's state fire marshal says a man burned down his parents' house and killed three pets while trying to exterminate ants in his basement with matches. Investigators say 21-year-old Devon Doucette was trying to incinerate the ants with wooden matches when one of them ignited combustible materials. The fire quickly spread to the rest of the house. Authorities say Doucette was treated for smoke inhalation and burns after he carried some burning items out of the house. They say the hous...

    America Gets a D Plus for Infrastructure, and a Big Bill to Fix it

    One of President Donald Trump’s first promises after getting elected was to spend $1 trillion on infrastructure—bridges, roads, tunnels, pipes, dams. And whether you’ve had to evacuate a town in the shadow of a crumbling dam, buy filters for tainted municipal water, or even just bounced over potholes on a highway, you’ve experienced the problems the president alluded to.

    Seaweed could shield Ireland's food and drink business from Brexit fallout

    IRELAND SHOULD GROW its seaweed sector to help weather the effects of Brexit on the food and drinks industry, a government committee has said. A report from the joint committee on agriculture, food and the marine singled out seaweed as an underdeveloped commodity that Ireland could use to “help mitigate some of the damage” caused by a hard Brexit. “Seaweed represents an opportunity for diversification of Irish aquaculture output,” the report said.

    Why no job is safe from the rise of the robots

    Hollywood got it wrong. The highly intelligent machines that will be unleashed in the near future won’t be coming for our lives. They’ll be coming for our jobs. Being rendered obsolete by technology has been a concern among the flesh-and-blood set for hundreds of years — cars put many in the horse industry out of work, for example — but the speed and types of recent advances are about to give the issue an exceptional urgency.

    Txt.fyi is the ‘dumbest publishing platform on the web,’ and it’s brilliant

    The first words I remember posting on the internet were on a self-made site uploaded to my local dial-up ISP's web hosting service. I have no idea if anyone ever read them, because they were a digital monolith — an attempt at writing that existed outside any real community or ecosystem, except maybe my parents and the real-world friends I showed it off to.
