    The Senate overturned late Obama-era rules Thursday meant to protect consumer privacy from internet service providers that want to sell it. The regulations were passed in October, but hadn’t yet gone into effect. They would have required ISPs like Comcast and Verizon to ask permission before using or selling personal information. ISPs collect data like your browsing history, your physical location, the apps you’re using, and your financial and health information. They can then sell that data to advertisers, who use it to tailor their marketing to your individual wants and needs. If customers don’t want their data to be...

    Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) has introduced an amendment to the unemployment extension bill currently being considered in the Senate that would add up to 50,000 new green cards per year with no offsets. His amendment includes the full language for S.310, the Startup Act 3.0, which would create 50,000 provisional green cards for foreign students who graduate with a degree in a STEM field and an additional 75,000 visas for entrepreneurs, which can also become permanent green cards.

    Not all Republicans are thrilled with GOP Senators John Cornyn and Marco Rubio’s resolution calling on President Obama to take action on the border. (SNIP) GOP staffers, however, tell Breitbart News that the resolution is inadequate, as it is too weak and fails to address the idea that the the humanitarian crisis at the border is actually a crisis of “lawlessness.” (SNIP) “It is facially weaker than Hillary Clinton's expressed position,” GOP staff told Breitbart News. Last week the former secretary of state said that the U.S. needs “to send a clear message” and send the unaccompanied minors back to...

    The St. Joseph Abbey monks will be able to legally sell handcrafted caskets from their St. Tammany Parish monastery near Covington after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a request by Louisiana's board of funeral directors to overturn an appeals court ruling that allowed the monks to sell caskets without a funeral director's license."We're just happy to know that our economic liberty has been protected, and we're also happy to know that maybe we've helped secure the rights of others," Abbot Justin Brown said of the Supreme Court's decision. "It's a good feeling. It does...hopefully put this issue to rest."The Louisiana...

    And the bid hits just keep on coming. While previously we reported the foreigners as an aggregate class sold the most gross US securities ever in the month of June, we also learned that in June the biggest selling came from America's two largest creditors: China and Japan (excluding the Fed of course, whose P&L losses are now approaching $300 billion in the past 3 months, or would if the Fed marked to anything but unicorns). In June, the two countries combined sold $42 billion, with each selling over $20 billion: the most in years.

    If the U.S. was a company, would you buy, hold, or sell the stock? A voluminous report put out last year by Mary Meeker sought to answer that very question.

    SEATTLE - He ruled Russia almost a century ago, and yet, somehow, a statue of communist leader Vladimir Lenin found its way to Seattle. It's not one of the city's more famous landmarks - like the Space Needle or Pike Place Market. Instead, the 16-foot-tall statue of the divisive dictator is tucked away in a more residential spot in Seattle's Fremont district. He is as controversial today as he was decades ago. "Why do we have a statue of him?" asked Erin Derring, as she walked by. "We couldn't imagine such a statue in America - you understand why," added...

    A mother walks into a Taco Bell...and what does she do? No, she doesn't order a Beefy 5 Layer Burrito. She peddles her three-day old to a customer. Some people just shouldn't have children. Heidi Lynn Knowles, 36, of Vancouver, Wash., reportedly stumbled into the restaurant and started taking bids from customers for her newborn son. The asking price ranged from $500 to $5,000. The cops were later called and showed up at a motel where Knowles was crashed. She was charged with attempted child selling-buying, a Class C felony, and was held on $50,000 bail. Some customers reported that...

The U.S. — with more carriers than all other nations combined — and established naval powers such as Britain, France and Russia are doing it. So are Brazil, India and China — which with Russia form the BRIC grouping of emerging economic giants. "The whole...

    I’ve often wondered if the early Web pioneers had it all to do over again if Web companies would have put less of an emphasis on free. People have been conditioned against paying for services or content on the Web, and the Web elite only have each other to blame. For all the talk of Web companies getting users first and “figuring out” how to make money later, the only two jaw-droppingly, multi-billion-dollar, innovative new ways to advertise online have been Google’s paid search ads and Groupon’s solution to unlocking local ad dollars on a mass scale.

    It's not nearly as bad as it sounds. Actually, it's quite good—for your family, and for our troops overseas. This, of course, is the weekend for costumed kids to go door to door collecting candy—probably way more than any child could or should eat. What to do with the excess haul? Check out the Halloween Candy Buy Back program. To participate, you bring your candy tonnage to a dentist's office, where they'll pay you $1 per pound no matter if you've got lollipops or Snickers, M&Ms or Smarties, or any other candy collected during Trick or Treat raids. The dentists...
