    Unlike Bill Clinton, Barack Obama never tried to say he didn't inhale. In his 1995 memoir "Dreams of My Father," Obama writes about smoking pot almost like Dr. Seuss wrote about eating green eggs and ham. As a high school kid, Obama wrote, he would smoke "in a white classmate's sparkling new van," he would smoke "in the dorm room of some brother" and he would smoke "on the beach with a couple of Hawaiian kids." He would smoke it here and there. He would smoke it anywhere. Now a soon-to-be published biography by David Maraniss entitled "Barack Obama: The...

The lost son To illustrate my point, Apple has refused to unlock a Mac belonging to a man’s murdered son. The victim was a painter and musician with a trove of precious creative work stashed on his machine, and his dad wants to be able to see the data there. You can see his point. Apple has declined to open up the Mac because: "It is impossible to...

    Apple just sent out invites for a press conference on Wednesday, September 7. The company will most likely unveil the next iPhone. The invite doesn’t say much. Apple usually likes to give hints — but this time, it just says “See you on the 7th.” The event will be held at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. This large venue has already been used for the WWDC keynote in June. For the past three years, Apple has unveiled a new iPhone in early September. Everything indicates that Apple is going to follow the same pattern this year...

    The suit, which was filed on August 18, says the franchise’s Coney Island location, which opened in 2015, and is the subject of the A&E series “Wahlburgers,” paid employees for significantly fewer hours than they actually worked; forced workers to unlawfully pool tips with non-tipped employees in the kitchen; and didn’t pay full time-and-a-half for overtime. Employees frequently complained to the managers of the Burger restaurant, but to no avail, according to the lawsuit. Wahlburgers didn’t even pay employees for coming to mandatory meetings, a violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). After a special event held by the...

Customers can buy in-store or place an order for delivery. Amazon devices, such as the Kindle e-book reader and Fire Tablet, are also available for in-store testing. It's the latest example of an online retailer branching out into brick-and-mortar, perhaps more striking with Amazon, which started as an online bookseller but quickly grew into an e-commerce giant selling everything under the sun.

    Saharan Africa loses around $95 billion a year due to gender inequality, jeopardizing the continent’s efforts for economic growth, according to a U.N. report launched Sunday. Deeply-rooted structural obstacles such as unequal distribution of resources and political power, combined with social institutions that sustain inequality are holding back African women, and the continent, said the Africa Human Development Report 2016 by U.N. Development Program. If gender gaps are closed in labor markets, education and health, it will accelerate the eradication of poverty and hunger, said UNDP Administrator Helen Clark.

The city teamed up with Pillsbury United Communities for the gun buyback event. The event began at 10 a.m. Saturday and was supposed to run until 6 p.m. at Stations 14 and 17 in Minneapolis, but the Visa gift cards that were being handed out in exchange for the guns have run out. An estimated 150 guns were dropped off during the event, according to Minneapolis police.

John’s school had begun using the devices with younger and younger grades—and his technology teacher had raved about their educational benefits—so Susan wanted to do what was best for her sandy-haired boy who loved reading and playing baseball. She started letting John play different educational games on his iPad. Eventually, he discovered Minecraft, which the technology teacher assured her was “just like electronic Lego.”

The parachute assisted splashdown of the Dragon CRS-9 cargo freighter took place at 11:47 a.m. EDT today in the Pacific Ocean – located some 326 miles (520 kilometers) southwest of Baja California.

Near the end of the auction, the Apple I reached a peak of $1.2 million, but the final bid was apparently cancelled at the very last second, giving the device a final sale price of $815,000 with 39 bids.The...

I have found that while 65% of Indian IT 'professionals' overstate their skill, the remaining 35% can do the job. The issue is the cultural differences. In the case of most Indians, some 90%, they will do EXACTLY as you ask. And that is their downfall. Americans...

Matt Steadman says he was unfazed when a Hillary Clinton yard sign was stolen off his lawn, then it happened again. The third time, someone left a note under his doormat reading, "Hillary for Prison 2016." That's when things took a dark turn. The next day his SUV wouldn't start. It was sabotaged beyond repair. "I smelled the inside of my gas tank and there was bleach," Steadman said.

All the trouble started when people downloaded and installed the Anniversary Update, which arrived at the turn of the month.
