    Solid gold coin worth $4m stolen from Berlin museum

    A giant gold coin bearing the Queen's image, and worth $4m (£3.2m), has been stolen from a museum in Germany. The Canadian coin, nicknamed the "big maple leaf", has a face value of $1m - but because it is 100kg (220lb) of pure 24-carat gold, its value is much higher at today's price for gold bullion. It was taken during the night from the Bode Museum in Berlin. It is not clear how the thieves evaded the alarm system or carried the heavy, half-metre (20.9 in) coin away.

    Yes, Trump scammed many of his working-class supporters. This new analysis leaves little doubt.

    Ever since President Trump was elected, launching the latest GOP drive to destroy Obamacare, some of us speculated that the GOP approach would hit many Trump voters hard. Trump strongly indicated to his working-class white supporters that he would not adopt a typical Republican’s ideological stance on health care that would leave many of them stranded. But now he has.

    Nova Scotia judge under fire for claiming ‘a drunk can consent’ in sex-assault case

    A Nova Scotia judge is facing a firestorm of criticism after declaring “clearly, a drunk can consent” as he acquitted a Halifax taxi driver of sexually assaulting a female passenger who was so intoxicated that she urinated on herself and passed out in the back of his cab. Justice Gregory Lenehan told the court that while it was obvious the woman was drunk at the time of the incident, and that the accused was “not somebody I would want my daughter driving with,” the Crown had failed to pr...

    Comcast, AT&T Are Paying Minority Groups To Support Killing Net Neutrality

    For years, we've noted how one of the greasier lobbying tactics in telecom is the use of minority groups to provide the illusion of broad support for what's often awful policy. Such groups are given cash for a shiny new event center in exchange for parroting any policy position that comes across their desks, even if it dramatically undermines their constituents. As a result, we've shown how time and time again you'll see minority coalitions like the "Hispanic Technology ...

    Most Government Workers Could Be Replaced By Robots, New Study Finds

    A study by a British think tank, Reform, says that 90% of British civil service workers have jobs so pointless, they could easily be replaced by robots, saving the government around $8 billion per year. The study, published this week, says that robots are “more efficient” at collecting data, processing paperwork, and doing the routine tasks that now fall to low-level government employees. Even nurses and doctors, who are government employees in the UK, could be relieved of some duties by mec...

    Duterte's war on drugs has created "an economy of murder" in the Philippines, says Amnesty International

    President Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drugs in the Philippines has created incentives to kill and “an economy of murder,” according to a new report by Amnesty International. More than 7,000 drug-related killings have taken place in the nation since Duterte came to power seven months ago. According to an officer who spoke to the rights group, police are paid $160 to $300 extra in cash—secretly, back at headquarters—for each extrajudicial execution disguised as a legitimate operation. They ...

    Donald Trump signs orders advancing construction of Keystone, Dakota pipelines

    President Donald Trump took steps to advance construction of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, marking the start of an era with fewer constraints on the oil industry to the chagrin of environmentalists who have bitterly fought the projects. The moves, among Trump’s first actions since taking office, are a major departure from the Obama administration, which rejected TransCanada Corp.’s Keystone proposal in 2015 and has kept Dakota Access blocked since September.

    In a first, judge finds teacher's Colorado high doesn't count in Texas

    After Maryam Roland, a public high school teacher in Ysleta, in El Paso, tested positive for marijuana use in 2015, the State Board for Educator Certification sought to suspend her license for two years. In her defense, Roland argued that because she’d smoked the pot during a vacation in Colorado, where the drug has been legal for recreational use since 2013, she had done nothing wrong.

    NSA to share data with other agencies without “minimizing” American information

    On Thursday The New York Times reported that the Obama administration had recently finalized rules to give the National Security Agency (NSA) more leeway in sharing its vast trove of intercepted communications with the 15 other government agencies that make up the Intelligence Community. Previously, agencies like the Drug Enforcement Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation would have to request information on a target from the NSA.
