Leader of self-styled U.S. citizen border patrol attacked in jail

Leader of self-styled U.S. citizen border patrol attacked in jail Larry Hopkins, 69, whose group of self-styled citizen border cops drew condemnation from civil liberties advocates, suffered broken ribs in the beating by fellow inmates on Tuesday at the Dona Ana County Detention Center in Las Cruces, New Mexico, according to his attorney, Kelly O'Connell. Hopkins was arrested on Saturday by the FBI on an outstanding warrant accusing him of being a felon in illegal possession of firearms, a charge dating back to a 2017 search of his home. The detention facility, about 200 miles south of Albuquerque, confirmed that Hopkins was "the alleged victim" of a Tuesday night attack and said the incident was under investigation.

Deutsche Bank handing over Trump loan documents: source

Deutsche Bank handing over Trump loan documents: source Deutsche Bank has begun to provide documents on financing for some of President Donald Trump's projects to New York State authorities, a source familiar with the matter told AFP on Wednesday. In mid-March, New York Attorney General Letitia James subpoenaed the German bank, demanding records related to loans and lines of credit granted to the Trump Organization. The money was intended to finance projects such as Trump hotels in Washington, DC, Miami and Chicago, another source told AFP last month on the condition of anonymity.


High-resolution Pixel 3a leak reveals the design of Google’s next phone

High-resolution Pixel 3a leak reveals the design of Google’s next phone Much like the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Fold before it, Google's Pixel 3a appears to have leaked in full ahead of its unveiling next month. On Wednesday morning, VentureBeat's Evan Blass piled on with a leak of his own -- a high-resolution Pixel 3a render that gives us our clearest look yet at the midrange phone.As previous leaks revealed, the Pixel 3a is a blast from the past, with a design more reminiscent of the phones that came before the iPhone X than the phones that have made their debut over the last 12 to 18 months. No notches, no triple-lens camera, no in-display fingerprint sensor -- the Pixel 3a forgoes all of the modern design advances that the industry has adopted in favor of a classic design that basically mirrors that of the Pixel 3.The design alone won't entice any smartphone fanatics that want to owe the latest, greatest device (providing it isn't so flawed that it has to be delayed indefinitely). But with a simple design and midrange specs, Google will be able to offer a quality Android phone for a competitive price, as Samsung does with its Galaxy A series.https://twitter.com/evleaks/status/1120938099318693888Due to various leaks over the past several months (including one from Google itself), we think we know what will be contained within the Pixel 3a and the larger Pixel 3a XL as well. The Pixel 3a is expected to feature a 5.6-inch display at 2,200 x 1,080 and a Snapdragon 670 CPU, while the Pixel 3a XL will boast a 6-inch display at 2,160 x 1,080 and a Snapdragon 710 CPU. Both phones will have 4GB of RAM and the Pixel Visual Core software.Google will announce the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL on May 7th, which is the date Google I/O 2019 kicks off.

Ford invests $500 mn in electric vehicle startup Rivian

Ford invests $500 mn in electric vehicle startup Rivian Ford Motor Co. said Wednesday it was investing $500 million in Rivian as part of a strategic partnership with the startup developing electric pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles. The tieup will enable Ford to develop its own branded electric vehicle using Rivian's "flexible skateboard platform," according to a statement from the two companies. "As we continue in our transformation of Ford with new forms of intelligent vehicles and propulsion, this partnership with Rivian brings a fresh approach to both," said Jim Hackett, Ford president and chief executive.


See this Aircraft Carrier? It Was One of the Worst To Ever Set Sail.

See this Aircraft Carrier? It Was One of the Worst To Ever Set Sail. On September 15th, 1942 USS Wasp was struck by three torpedoes from the Imperial Japanese Navy submarine I-19. Wasp at first though survivable and was even able to remain under her own power, but gasoline fires swept through the ship and made her recovery impossible. After five hours the order was given to abandon ship, and Wasp was scuttled by three torpedoes fired by the destroyer USS Lansdowne. Of the ship’s 2,247 crew, 193 were killed and 366 wounded.(This first appeared last month.)The U.S. Navy rose to prominence during World War II from just one of many major naval powers to the undisputed greatest in just four short years. This was in large part due to the expansion and effective use of its aircraft carrier fleet. Although most American flattops that fought in the war were highly successful designs one, USS Wasp, was fatally compromised by the need to conform to international treaty obligations. The result was a carrier that was quickly sunk early on in the war, making only a modest contribution to the overall effort.A Treaty Like No Other: One of the most ambitious conventional arms control treaties ever signed was the Washington Naval Treaty. The multinational treaty was negotiated between 1921 and 1922 and resulted in limits in the size of individual warships and the overall tonnage of the navies of the United Kingdom, United States, Italy, and France.

Check Out This Picture: You Are Looking at the Greatest Aircraft Carrier Ever

Check Out This Picture: You Are Looking at the Greatest Aircraft Carrier Ever Shortly before USS Enterprise went to the breakers, a new ship bearing the name was laid down; CVN-65, the world’s first nuclear aircraft carrier. The latter USS Enterprise served for fifty years, before decommissioning in 2012. Another USS Enterprise, CVN-80, is scheduled for completion by 2025.In May 1938, the U.S. Navy commissioned the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise, the seventh ship to bear the name in American service. The second of three sisters, Enterprise made a central—perhaps the central—contribution to the war effort in 1942. The U.S. Navy began 1942 with six fleet carriers (excluding the small Ranger, which served in the Atlantic). Over the course of the year, Japanese aircraft and submarines would sink four of those carriers and put a fifth (USS Saratoga) out of action for long periods of time. Enterprise fought with distinction in most of the major battles of 1942, and survived to contribute for the rest of the war.(This first appeared several years ago.)In short, USS Enterprise (CV-6) was the finest ship ever to serve in the U.S. Navy.Construction


Iranians brace for harder times as US oil sanctions close in

Iranians brace for harder times as US oil sanctions close in Iranians, already hard hit by punishing US economic sanctions, are bracing for more pain after Washington abolished waivers for some countries which had allowed them to buy oil from Iran. "In the end the pressure (America) is putting out is on the people," said a 28-year-old technical instructor in Iran. In 2015 when Iran struck a landmark nuclear deal with world powers, hopes were high that it would end the country's years of crippling economic isolation.

UPDATE 2-PG&E get approval to pay employees $350 mln to meet safety goals after wildfires

UPDATE 2-PG&E get approval to pay employees $350 mln to meet safety goals after wildfires PG&E Corp can pay employees up to $350 million in bonuses this year to spur them to help meet the bankrupt California power provider's safety goals to prevent wildfires, a judge said on Tuesday. PG&E's management has said the company needs to implement the bonus plan to carry out tasks such as clearing trees and branches around power lines to avert contact that triggers wildfires. While the maximum cost of the plan is $350 million, PG&E has said it expects the likely cost will be around $235 million.


House Dems Schedule First Ever ‘Medicare for All’ Hearing

House Dems Schedule First Ever ‘Medicare for All’ Hearing House Democrats have scheduled the first ever hearing for Medicare for All legislation for next week, as the proposal is becoming a litmus test for Democratic 2020 presidential candidates.The "Medicare for All Act" will be considered by the House Rules Committee next Tuesday and by the House Budget Committee at a later date. However, the two primary health care committees, Ways and Means as well as Energy and Commerce, have so far been reluctant to consider the proposal."It’s a serious proposal that deserves serious consideration on Capitol Hill as we work toward universal coverage,” said Representative James McGovern, who chairs the Rules committee.Representatives Pramila Jayapal and Debbie Dingell introduced the legislation, which has more than 100 House co-sponsors, fewer than the proposal has had in previous years.  The bill would cover disability, prescription drugs, mental health, maternal care, vision, dental, and substance-abuse care, would scrap Medicare’s age requirement, and would not charge patients copays, premiums, or deductibles. It does not detail how the program’s cost would be covered.Speaker Nancy Pelosi has encouraged committees to hold hearings on Medicare for All but has not attached her name to the proposal.“That is, administratively, the simplest thing to do, but to convert to it? Thirty trillion dollars. Now, how do you pay for that?,” Pelosi remarked in February.Analysts estimated other versions of the legislation, such as Senator Bernie Sanders' Senate bill, would cost in the ballpark of $32 trillion.Sanders was one of the first Democratic heavyweights to back the sweeping health care overhaul, which would transfer all U.S. residents to a government health care plan and essentially eliminate the private health insurance market.The democratic socialist and presidential candidate has since propelled the issue to the front of the 2020 presidential debate, impelling other contenders for the Democratic nomination to state where they stand on the proposal.


NASA probe records first likely 'marsquake' detected on red planet

NASA probe records first likely 'marsquake' detected on red planet NASA's robotic probe InSight has detected and measured what scientists believe to be a "marsquake," marking the first time a likely seismological tremor has been recorded on another planet, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California reported on Tuesday. The breakthrough came five months after InSight, the first spacecraft designed specifically to study the deep interior of a distant world, touched down on the surface of Mars to begin its two-year seismological mission on the red planet. The faint rumble characterized by JPL scientists as a likely marsquake was recorded on April 6, the lander's 128th Martian day, or sol.

Neo-Nazi linked to group who said Prince Harry was a race traitor for marrying Meghan pleads guilty

Neo-Nazi linked to group who said Prince Harry was a race traitor for marrying Meghan pleads guilty Two teenage neo-Nazis, linked to a group that called Prince Harry a "race traitor"  for marrying Mehgan Markle, are facing jail after admitting terror charges. Polish national, Michal Szewczuk, 19, admitted two counts of encouraging terrorism and five of possessing documents that could be useful to a terrorist, when he appeared at the Old Bailey. His co-defendant, Oskar Dunn-Koczorowski, 18, had previously pleaded guilty to encouraging terrorism. The charges relate to a neo-Nazi group called the Sonnenkrieg Division, which posted extreme racist material on the GAB social media platform. In one post, a picture of the Duke of Sussex was set against a swastika with a gun pointing at his head and the slogan: "See ya later, race traitor!" The group is an off shoot of the American Atomwaffen Division, which encourages terrorism and worships Adolf Hitler and Charles Manson. Szewczuk, who used an online pseudonym, posted comments that called for the "systematic slaughter" of women.  He also pleaded guilty to five charges relating to the possession of bomb making documents and other extremist terrorist material. At an earlier hearing, prosecutor Jessica Hart described how Szewczuk and Dunn-Koczorowski had shared the Sonnenkrieg Gab account, with both posting from the same account at different times. Judge Rebecca Poulet QC warned both teenagers they could face custody when they return to court for sentencing on 17 June.

Watch the Easter Bunny throw punches in a street brawl, because Florida

Watch the Easter Bunny throw punches in a street brawl, because Florida Of all the holidays on the U.S. calendar, Easter is definitely one of the most low-key. Families gather, eat some ham, and maybe the kids hunt for colored eggs or eat a bunch of candy, but it's generally pretty chill. That is, unless you're in Florida, where being in the holiday spirit and donning an Easter Bunny costume doesn't stop anyone from getting into a heated street brawl in Orlando.A video, which was first posted by Instagram user Workfth but subsequently removed due to a perceived "community guidelines" violation, shows a friendly Easter Bunny getting right in the middle of a physical altercation between two men on a busy street. Curses are yelled, punches are thrown, and our furry friend is right there in the thick of it all.Posted again by a different user, the video can be seen below (until Instagram inevitably removes it yet again).https://www.instagram.com/p/BwkQt1SA_jw/It's difficult to parse what exactly is happening here but it's clear that the two men fighting at the beginning of the clip have a very big problem with one another. The bunny arrives late to the brawl but manages to get a few jabs and hooks in anyway, landing repeated blows on one of the men before police arrive and break things up.Once tempers die down a bit the bunny becomes an instant celebrity and proceeds to shadowbox to the amusement of the gathered spectators. Hilariously, despite throwing repeated punches with a police officer standing just feet away, the bunny sidesteps any reprimand while the cop sorts things out between the two original combatants.It's a lovely little video and further proof that Florida is a treasure that should be cherished and appreciated for the entertainment it gives us all.


U.S. to Reciprocate on ‘Unfair’ EU Harley Tariffs, Trump Says

U.S. to Reciprocate on ‘Unfair’ EU Harley Tariffs, Trump Says “So unfair to U.S. We will Reciprocate!” Trump said Tuesday on Twitter in a post that quoted a person speaking on Fox Business Network. Harley-Davidson reported slumping first-quarter profit Tuesday, though it beat analysts’ expectations. Harley is moving some U.S. production overseas to sidestep EU tariffs that jumped to 31 percent from 6 percent after Trump hiked levies on steel and aluminum imports.

Trump makes U-turn to support Harley-Davidson as profits fall amid tariff war

Trump makes U-turn to support Harley-Davidson as profits fall amid tariff war President had called for boycott after company shifted production to Thailand but says he will ‘reciprocate’ against ‘unfair’ EU taxes Harley-Davidson said they were forced to move production overseas after the EU slapped tariffs in retaliation for Trump’s steel and aluminium tariffs. Photograph: Guillaume Souvant/AFP/Getty Images Harley-Davidson blamed European taxes on imports of its gas-guzzling hogs for a 27% drop in profits in the first quarter, prompting Donald Trump to vow retaliation against the EU. “So unfair to US. We will reciprocate!” the president tweeted. Trump’s support comes after he called for a boycott of the motorcycle company following its decision to move some production to Thailand – a move the company said was necessary to cut costs after the EU slapped tariffs on Harley in retaliation for Trump’s tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. In a conference call on Tuesday, Harley chief executive Matt Levatich confirmed the company’s performance had been hit by tariffs, both in terms of imported raw materials and on European sales. Tariffs on Harley’s motorcycles have jumped from 6% to 31% and are scheduled to rise again to 56% in June 2021. “The big impact for us is European Union tariffs,” Levatich said. He added that Harley could not afford its growth potential in Europe to be “hamstrung by incremental tariffs” and described the situation as “unfortunate”. Levatich went on: “We’re pursuing our strategy to get to the European marketplace through our international manufacturing footprint. Clearly this is an imperative for us as a business and we’ll continue to execute that strategy unless or until circumstances change.” Levatich said European sales were down 8.1%, while sales to the UK had declined by double digits – a drop he blamed on consumer uncertainty around Brexit. Trump’s support came as Harley said global sales had fallen 3.8% in the first quarter. Harley reported first-quarter net income of $127.9m on consolidated revenue of $1.38bn, compared to $174.8m on consolidated revenue of $1.54bn in 2018, a decline of 26.8%. Harley-Davidson said it expected full-year shipments in the range of 217,000 to 220,000 compared to 228,051 in 2018. On Tuesday, Harley said it was planning to expand its product line to appeal to younger riders, as sales to older riders of the largest hog-style of bike have declined sharply. Research has identified a persistently weak market for large motorcycles caused by an ageing ridership and problems attracting youngsters less attached to Harley’s heritage and tradition. Earlier this month, Wells Fargo said the company faced a “long path to stabilization” despite drawing up an ambitious plan to revamp its motorcycle line. However, Wells Fargo offered a note of optimism in Harley’s plans to introduce a range of smaller bikes and electric-powered models that could attract a younger demographic and international expansion, particularly in Asia. Harley’s first of five electric models, called LiveWire, comes with a hefty $29,799 price tag that analysts believe will limit its appeal. The bike is being launched in August. No release date for other models, including a scooter, have been announced. The latest figures represent a continued conflicted story for Harley, which has one wheel on the road and another in the ditch. In January, Harley reported a drop in worldwide sales of 6.7%. The company barely broke even in the last quarter of 2018, with sales dropping 10% in December – its eighth month of decline – with stock plunging 33% for the year.


Trump to make state visit to Britain in June

Trump to make state visit to Britain in June Trump will be only the third U.S. president to have been accorded the honor of a state visit by Queen Elizabeth during her 67-year reign. Almost 1.9 million Britons signed a petition in 2017 saying he should not be given a state visit - a pomp-laden affair involving a carriage trip through London and a banquet at Buckingham Palace. Protests involving tens of thousands of demonstrators overshadowed his non-state trip to Britain last July.

Brand new OnePlus 7 specs leak includes an exciting surprise

Brand new OnePlus 7 specs leak includes an exciting surprise The OnePlus 7 launch is almost upon us, as OnePlus just announced earlier on Tuesday morning. We're reportedly going to have three different OnePlus 7 versions in stores starting in mid-May, according to trusted leakers, and OnePlus has started sharing some details about the upcoming handsets. But you won't have to wait until the official event in May to find out what the OnePlus 7 phones will have to offer, as we have a brand new specs leak that packs plenty of info -- and a great surprise.A trusted leaker who already shared details about the OnePlus 7 Pro's camera is now back with the full specs list for all three phones. It's almost exactly what you expect for a 2019 Android flagship: we're looking at Snapdragon 855-powered devices and at least 6GB of RAM. In other words, the OnePlus 7 should be even faster than its class-leading predecessor. But Max J. says the OnePlus 7 Pro will have UFS 3.0 flash memory, which is the latest, fastest type of onboard storage for Android devices. The only other phone to feature such speedy flash memory is the Galaxy Fold, a device that Samsung has just postponed.The OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 7 Pro 5G phones will feature a 6.7-inch 90Hz display with 3120 x 1440 resolution (19.5:9 aspect ratio), the Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB/8GB/12GB of RAM, 128GB/256GB of UFS 3.0 storage, 48-megapixel (f1.5 OIS+EIS), 8-megapixel (f2.4, 3x zoom), 16-megapixel (f2.2 117-degree wide-angle) rear cameras, a 16-megapixel (f2.0) selfie camera, a 4,000 mAh battery with 30W Warp Charge support, and an in-display fingerprint sensor.https://twitter.com/Samsung_News_/status/1120330004464832513The regular OnePlus 7, meanwhile, packs a smaller 6.4-inch display with 2340 x 1080 resolution, Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB/8GB of RAM, 128GB/256GB of storage (but not the UFS 3.0 kind), 48-megapixel (f1.7) and 5-megapixel (depth) rear cameras, and 3,700 mAh battery with 20W fast charging support.https://twitter.com/Samsung_News_/status/1120330016439640065The leaker also mentions new Bullets Wireless 2 headphones, although he says he doesn't have any specific information on those just yet. The OnePlus 7 is only a few weeks away, assuming the recent leaks are accurate, so we'll soon know everything there is to know about the new phones.


Islamic State Says Its Fighters Carried Out Sri Lanka Attacks

Islamic State Says Its Fighters Carried Out Sri Lanka Attacks "Those who carried out the attack that targeted citizens belonging to the alliance countries and Christians in Sri Lanka are fighters with the Islamic State," according to a statement on IS news agency Amaq carried by SITE, which tracks jihadist groups. ‘Alliance countries’ refers to those involved in the U.S.-led military coalition against the Islamic State in Syria, which includes 79 nations from Asia, Europe, Africa and the Middle East, although Sri Lanka is not among them. Just last month the U.S. declared the last swath of territory once held by Islamic State in Iraq and Syria has been liberated.
