Heavy shelling resumed in the Libyan capital Tripoli on Sunday after three days of relative calm following more than a month of street fighting between rival armed factions battling for control of the city's airport. The North African OPEC oil producer is facing the worst violence since the 2011 war that toppled Muammar Gaddafi, with more than 200 people killed. Many Western embassies and international companies have evacuated staff members.
Does cloud computing have a nationality? That’s the question posed by Microsoft’s lawyers and the counsel in a closely watched case whose oral arguments begin in Manhattan on Wednesday morning. The case scrutinizes the ability of the US government to seize information outside its own borders. Microsoft and the US government are facing off in the second circuit court of appeals over the tech giant’s continuing refusal to hand over emails related to a narcotics case from a Hotmail account hosted in Ireland in 2013. Microsoft argues that its data should be protected by the laws of the land where its servers are located – a decision that will have major ramifications for cloud computing no matter which way it goes. The case has made for strange bedfellows: Apple filed an amicus brief with Microsoft, as did the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Verizon, NPR and Fox News, the Irish government, the ACLU, eBay, and the Guardian. In court documents, Microsoft argued: “The power to embark on unilateral law enforcement incursions into a foreign sovereign country – directly or indirectly – has profound foreign policy consequences. Worse still, it threatens the privacy of US citizens.”
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has laid out a plan for fighting drug and alcohol addiction in the United States, including a new $7.5 billion federal fund to help states tackle a problem afflicting 23 million Americans. In an opinion piece in the Manchester Union Leader, a New Hampshire newspaper, Clinton set out five goals including empowering communities to prevent drug use among teenagers and making addiction treatment available to every person needing it. Clinton said the federal government "will draw on a new $7.5 billion fund to help states meet their goals" in fighting what she called a "quiet epidemic."
It's been a year since Steven Sotloff was brutally murdered. The images, which have become all too commonplace, shocked the American public -- and consequently, the American President -- into responding to the horror that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria has wrought in the Middle East. But countless decapitations, and hundreds of thousands of less infamous predations later, ISIS continues to flourish. The United States has no strategy against the terrorist group, and the tactics being pursued by the Obama administration are failing. In early July, the President took to the airwaves to give an update on the battle against ISIS saying "As with any military effort, there will be periods of progress, but there are also going to be some setbacks -- as we've seen with ISIL's gains in Ramadi in Iraq and central and southern Syria."
Kanye West made waves during the MTV Video Music Awards when he capped off his 13-minute acceptance speech by announcing his plan to run for president of the United States in 2020. Since then, comparisons between West and GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump have abounded. It turns out Trump is a big Kanye fan and believes the feeling is mutual, saying "He's said very nice things about me in the past... extremely positive things." Trump also noted that he doesn't "quite get" the comparisons between the two of them.
When an avid Green Bay Packers fan asked young Chicago Bears fan Miguel Reyes what he wanted to name the thing he disliked most in his life, the answer was immediate. The 14-year-old Elkhart, Indiana, resident had only one name for the brain tumor that would soon require surgery. He named it Aaron Rodgers. Reyes said he’s drawing strength from looking at his battle in the context of one of the NFL’s fiercest rivalries. Reyes said Tuesday, “It’s inspired me, and it’s helping me, too. I feel like he’s a big, strong quarterback and beats our Bears. So I’m going to beat him.”
