    It turns out Donald Trump is not an ‘Artist of the Deal’

    “Winning is everything,” Donald Trump often said as he campaigned for president. “Nothing is presidential except victory.” Last week, Trump suffered a major defeat when he couldn’t force a House vote for the health care bill he endorsed. But, Trump being Trump, he said it wasn’t really a defeat; it was a success in disguise. “Here’s the good news,” he told the Washington Post. “Health care is now totally the property of the Democrats. … I’ve been saying for years that the...

    North Dakota oil spill 3 times larger than first estimated

    A December oil pipeline spill in western North Dakota might have been three times larger than first estimated and among the biggest in state history, a state environmental expert said Friday. About 530,000 gallons of oil is now believed to have spilled from the Belle Fourche Pipeline that was likely ruptured by a slumping hillside about 16 miles northwest of Belfield in Billings County, Health Department environmental scientist Bill Seuss said. The earlier estimate was about 176,000 gallons.

    A woman who voted for Donald Trump because of his immigration policies is now facing the prospect of having her husband deported to Mexico.

    Americans chant ‘Build the wall’ while on vacation in Cancun, Mexico

    Anaximandro and Sully Amable were all set to enjoy a night watching a pirate show on a boat in the waters off of Cancun two weeks ago. Then a group of American spring breakers did their best to ruin the night. Some U.S. vacationers aboard the ship started chanting “build the wall,” in an obvious reference to U.S. President Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico, Anaximandro wrote on Facebook in Spanish two weeks ago.

    An Obituary of The New York Times

    A few years ago I had the pleasure of meeting Arthur Sulzberger, Jr. and Bill Keller at The New York Times building on Manhattan. Keller was the long time editor in chief of the newspaper and Sulzberger its proprietor. We met at what must have been the 50th floor of the company headquarters, on 8th Avenue. I write company headquarters, instead of newspaper, because this part of the building was accessible only through a separate elevator-system and was strictly off-limits for the regular New Yor...

    Microsoft is infesting Windows 10 with annoying ads

    I’ve sat back and witnessed the development of Windows 10 and appreciated the speed of new feature releases, but it seems there’s a price to pay for this new “Windows as a service” world. Microsoft has gradually been infesting Windows 10 with annoying ads. The first emerged on the lock screen as “tips,” and then there was the bundling of Candy Crush with the OS, and now Microsoft has started blasting notifications into the task bar and File Explorer.

    Whom to trust when it comes to health-care reform? Trump supporters put their faith in him.

    Soon after Charla McComic’s son lost his job, his health-insurance premium dropped from $567 per month to just $88, a “blessing from God” that she believes was made possible by President Trump. “I think it was just because of the tax credit,” said McComic, 52, a former first-grade teacher who traveled to Trump’s Wednesday night rally in Nashville from Lexington, Tenn., with her daughter, mother, aunt and cousin.

    Official: America auto-scanned visitors' social media profiles. Also: It didn't work properly

    The US Department of Homeland Security used software to scan social media accounts of people visiting America, but it didn't work properly. That's the conclusion of a study by the department's inspector general. In a heavily redacted report [PDF] that surfaced this week, the watchdog revealed that in December 2015, US Citizenship and Immigration Services ran a pilot program to check social media streams both manually and automatically for any signs of wrongdoing.

    Mannequin sting catches suspect in Las Vegas homeless murders

    It was 3am at a secluded Las Vegas intersection, a place home to little else except the occasional homeless person sleeping on a bed of gravel. A figure strode back and forth, his attention drawn to a motionless form under some blankets. The man, identified by police as Shane Schindler, 30, pulled a hood over his head. He lifted a four-pound hammer with both hands to “generate maximum force”, according to police, and brought it down on the recumbent shape “with the intent to kill”.
