Huawei is on a roller coaster ride with President Trump. After losing access to Google, ARM, and other technology companies it was estimated to lose $30 billion as a result of the ban.

Lowell, MA — Police officers, we are told, are here to enforce the law and “protect and serve” the communities in which they work. While many of the folks who choose this career path follow through with their responsibilities, others seek out this job to use it to dominate and exploit others. Lowell police officer Kevin Garneau is one of these cops who allegedly used his power to prey on a homeless child.

On Thursday, the Supreme Court of the United States Ruled that police officers do not need your consent, nor do they need a warrant, to draw your blood—so long as you are unconscious—and police accuse you of being under the influence.
The ruling on Thursday is in stark contrast to the previous precedent which stated that police do need a warrant to perform a blood test if the driver does not or cannot voluntarily consent.

It has gotten to the point where maybe we should just expect violent storms to hammer the Midwest every single day of the week. Highly destructive storms ripped through the Midwest on Tuesday, it happened again on Wednesday, and the forecast calls for more powerful storms on Thursday. This growing season has been a complete and utter nightmare for U.S. farmers, and each day it just gets even worse. Millions of acres will not be planted at all this year, but an even bigger problem is that fact that crops are dramatically failing on tens of millions of acres that were actually planted in time. Every major storm does even more damage, and that is why what we have witnessed so far this week has been so alarming.

It remains the mystery at the heart of Boeing Co.’s 737 Max crisis: how a company renowned for meticulous design made seemingly basic software mistakes leading to a pair of deadly crashes. Longtime Boeing engineers say the effort was complicated by a push to outsource work to lower-paid contractors.
The Max software — plagued by issues that could keep the planes grounded months longer after U.S. regulators this week revealed a new flaw — was developed at a time Boeing was laying off experienced engineers and pressing suppliers to cut costs.
