The death of a British teen has put a strain on the US-UK relationship

Harry Dunn, a 19-year-old British man, was killed in a crash with a Volvo while riding his motorcycle in Northamptonshire, England, in late August.

Dunn died close to the Royal Air Force Croughton, which is a US military base. According to CCTV, the Volvo was driving on the wrong side of the road when it struck Dunn on his bike. The driver of the Volvo was later identified as 42-year-old Anne Sacoolas, the wife of an American diplomat stationed at the base.

Dunn’s tragic death has now become a diplomatic dispute after Sacoolas fled Britain and returned to the …

The October Democratic presidential debate, explained in under 25 minutes

Twelve Democratic presidential candidates took the stage at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio, for a debate hosted by CNN and the New York Times on Tuesday, October 15. The first to take place during the ongoing impeachment inquiry of President Trump, it was only natural that the whistleblower scandal involving the president’s call with Ukraine would come up. This included the fact that the call involved Trump asking Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and any irregularities regarding his son Hunter Biden’s involvement while sitting on the board of a Ukrainian gas company.

Netflix missed its subscriber numbers, again

Netflix has missed its subscriber numbers for the second consecutive quarter — a result that could worry Wall Street as the streaming company braces for a slew of competitors that are coming in the next few months.

Netflix added 6.8 million subscribers in its third quarter of the year instead of the 7 million it expected. Netflix had told investors it expected to add 800,000 subscribers in the US and 6.2 million in the rest of the world; instead it added 500,000 US subscribers and 6.3 million internationally.

Netflix also told investors that it expects to add 26.7 million subscribers …

California’s deliberate blackouts were outrageous and harmful. They’re going to happen again.

What California went through last week was absolutely bonkers.

To avoid sparking wildfires during particularly dry, windy conditions, Pacific Gas & Electric — PG&E, the state’s largest utility provider — shut off electrical service to some 738,000 people, a deliberate blackout unprecedented in the history of the nation’s electrical system.

There’s probably no pleasant way to do something like that, but still, PG&E did it very poorly. Residents had little warning, in some cases less than 24 hours. Nursing homes, emergency rooms, police stations, and fire stations scrambled for backup generators. People with powered medical equipment or refrigerated drugs …

Factors to Look Out for When Buying FM Transmitter for Car

t’s essential to understand that FM transmitters have to convert your music to the radio signal, which is basically how radios pick up signals and play back. In most instances, the process may result to loss of sound quality. As results, you need transmitters that reduce loss signals. Interference is the primary barrier to great sound quality on FM transmitters. Look for a device that comes with a noise-cancelling feature. It will help keep the signal free from any unnecessary noise so the sound is clear and crisp.…

Elizabeth Warren spoke the most at the Democratic debate — a sign of her status as a frontrunner

Judging by speaking time, Sen. Elizabeth Warren certainly had the most to say — and the most attacks to respond to — at Tuesday’s Democratic debate.

Of the 12 candidates onstage at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio, Warren spoke the most by a decent margin, clocking in at 22 minutes of speaking time, followed by former Vice President Joe Biden, who spoke for 16 minutes. Warren’s leadership in speaking time not only indicated how much her responses dominated the debate, it also underscored her newly minted status as a frontrunner.

The first state caucuses and primaries are still months away, …

Pete Buttigieg and Beto O’Rourke’s feud boils over at the Democratic debate

The feud between South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke boiled over on Tuesday during the Democratic debate.

The disagreement between the two, which began in the wake of the September debate, centered on conflict over a mandatory assault weapons buyback, a policy that O’Rourke has touted but struggled to fully explain. While O’Rourke has argued that a buyback would help curb gun violence, Buttigieg has previously called it a “shiny object” and did not hold back from reiterating this argument again on Tuesday.

“Congressman, you just made it clear you are don’t know how this …

Tom Steyer shouldn’t be running for president

What do people want when they have it all? Reasonably often, they seem to want the US presidency.

The latest billionaire who has set his sights on the White House is hedge fund investor and early impeachment activist Tom Steyer, who made his way onto the debate stage on October 15, thanks to a huge campaign in the early-voting states.

Several of America’s highest-profile billionaires have flirted with running for president, or actually run, in the past few decades. The late Ross Perot had one of the strongest showings a third-party candidate has ever had in 1992 and 1996, …
