Democratic debate winners and losers: Elizabeth Warren triumphs while Beto O'Rourke flounders
The Democrat Party 2020 presidential election debate in Miami was the major chance for the many of the candidates involved to pitch themselves to a national audience.The 10 candidates on the stage, with another 10 debating tomorrow, had around 10 minutes maximum to make sure they stood out. Some triumphed, some failed.The candidates were: Cory Booker, Beto O'Rourke, Elizabeth Warren, Julián Castro, Amy Klobuchar, Tulsi Gabbard, Tim Ryan, John Delaney, Bill de Blasio, and Jay Inslee.Ms Warren is the frontrunner of those names when it comes to the national polls, with Mr Booker and Mr O'Rourke the other candidates with solid name recognition.Here are our winners and losers from the two hours of questions, impassioned statements and squabbles. WinnersElizabeth WarrenThe senator from Massachusetts was the person to beat in the debate and would have expected the other candidates to come after her. Getting through the two hours without a major slip or spat would have been enough.But Ms Warren did more than that. She has set herself up as the candidate with plans, putting out more policy plans than almost anyone else among the more than 20 Democrat candidates. That showed in a strong first hour that involved questions on her favourite topics - healthcare and the economy.She has called for "structural change" in many departments and that message was relayed strongly. Other candidates will be bemoan her airtime, the third most among the candidates,

Latest sex accusation against Trump lands with a thud
Nearly a week after the latest sexual misconduct accusation against President Donald Trump, the story has largely landed with a thud. Some see the muted response to author E. Jean Carroll's allegation of Trump assaulting her in a department store dressing room more than two decades ago as yet another example of the divisive Politics of Trump: Those who support him dismiss it as fake news. "Essentially, you're either for him or against him, and if you're for him, it doesn't matter what he's done," said Larry Sabato, who directs the University of Virginia's Center for Politics.

Watch Arnold Schwarzenegger go undercover and prank prospective car buyers
In a somewhat bizarre, and yet entertaining, new commercial, Arnold Schwarzenegger goes "undercover" and tries to convince prospective EV buyers to get a gas-powered car instead. The ad itself was put together by Veloz, a California non-profit keen on accelerating the adoption of electric vehicles across the country. The ad is essentially a tongue-in-cheek effort to extol the virtues of electric cars by highlighting the drawbacks of traditional gas-powered vehicles. As a quick example, Schwarzenegger at one point brings out a Hummer and starts aggressively revving the engine and causing a lot of uncomfortable noise in the process. "Can a battery-powered car do this," Schwarzenegger asks rhetorically while sitting behind the wheel. When a prospective EV buyers says that the noise would annoy his neighbors, Schwarzenegger comedically responds: "You're god**** right it will impress your neighbors. This is testosterone!" When another customer tells Schwarzenegger that he's intrigued by the tax credit afforded to EV buyers, the former Governor of California exclaims, "You want a tax credit or do you want to have street credit?" Later on, Schwarzenegger -- who goes by the name Howard Kleiner in the commercial -- tries to argue that the pollution caused by gas-powered vehicles is actually a good thing because it helps stem population growth. All in all, the commercial is well done and the entire thing can be viewed below. There's even a subtle shout out to one of Schwarzenegger's all-ti

Would U.S. Navy Aircraft Carriers Lose a War to Iran?
The recent oil tanker attacks in the Gulf of Oman reinforce the need to reestablish a highly visible U.S. naval deterrent in the Middle East. For eight months last year, no aircraft carrier strike group plied the region, the longest such interruption this millennium. With the United States needing a more robust posture against Iran and confronting renewed challenges in Asia and Europe, several immediate measures and concerted longer-term efforts are critical to ensure America has the carriers it needs.The requirement to maintain carrier presence in the Middle East is a critical part of a broader national security strategy, in which U.S. global security interests necessitate a worldwide force presence. Indeed, the Navy's mission demands remain as high as those of the Cold War, calling on ships to be everywhere seemingly at once, but today's fleet is less than half the size it was 30 years ago.During the Obama administration, a "rebalance" supposedly allowed the Pentagon to focus on Asia and Europe while washing its hands of the Middle East. In reality, we never effectively rebalanced forces in the Indo-Pacific, and the situation on the ground forced us to remain deeply involved in the Middle East. Now with a growing Iranian threat, it would be imprudent to suddenly abandon the region, even as we face renewed challenges in the Pacific, Atlantic and Mediterranean.Indeed, Iran's threat to the region continues growing as its recent attacks against oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman demonstrate.

Math Explains Why the Democrats May Have Trouble Picking a Candidate
With 24 declared candidates for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination (and counting), many Americans are likely wondering how the party will ultimately make up its mind and settle on the best candidate.As mathematicians, we wondered whether there might not even be a best candidate. In fact, this is an established mathematical paradox. The more candidates there are, the greater the chance there is no clear favorite.Here's what we mean.Suppose there were only two candidates for some office, and that each voter preferred one or the other. Barring a perfect tie, one candidate will end up with the most votes. Ignoring complications like the Electoral College or voter turnout, the election process provides a way to measure the "will of the people."Now imagine there were three candidates instead of just two.Three friends and a pollster walk into a bar and discuss the upcoming election. The first friend thinks that candidate A is better than B, and that C is the worst of all. The next agrees that B is better than C, but she thinks that B and C are both better than A. The final friend partially agrees with both of them: He thinks C is the best candidate, followed by A, and then B.The pollster cannot say which is the best candidate, since, for these voters, there is no best candidate! Their ranked preferences are inconsistent with each other.This situation is an example of Condorcet's paradox. It was named for the French Enlightenment philosopher and mathematician Marie Jean Antoine Nicolas de C

Palestinian Windfall Hinges on Political Moves, U.S. Envoy Says
(Bloomberg) -- The financial bonanza the Trump administration envisions for the Palestinians is unlikely to materialize unless there's progress toward resolving the 70-year-old conflict with Israel, according to a top U.S. envoy."If we're not going to get traction on the political aspect of the deal, I'm not sure we would take the time to try to get pledges," U.S. special envoy Jason Greenblatt said at an economic conference to drum up support for the U.S. plan in Bahrain on Wednesday. "A lot of pledges get made to help the Palestinian people. Many of them are never actually paid anyway. But if we do see traction, then absolutely."President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, promoted the economic component of his long-promised initiative for Middle East peace with the workshop in Bahrain this week, where he called for about $50 billion in proposed investments in the Palestinian territories and neighboring countries that host refugees. The more divisive political aspect of the plan isn't expected to be revealed until later this year.His economic road map, published days before the Bahrain event, makes little mention of how to resolve the political troubles at the heart of conflict. High-profile speakers from government and business mostly sidestepped those thorny questions to focus on general themes of governance and entrepreneurship as the key to prosperity for the Palestinians.But Greenblatt's comments appeared to undermine the Trump administration's contention th

Replica clock find sparks hope for Notre-Dame restoration
An accidental discovery of a 19th-century clock in a dusty church storage room in Paris has sparked hopes that it can be used to replace a timepiece destroyed in the fire at Notre-Dame cathedral. The ruined clock in Notre-Dame, which measured two metres (6.5 feet) across, was located beneath the roof and spire of the Gothic monument which crashed down in the blaze that stunned France in April. Then French clockmaker Jean-Baptiste Viot stumbled across an almost identical version while completing an inventory last month at Saint Trinite church in northern Paris, four kilometres (2.5 miles) away from Notre-Dame.

Taj Ma Garaj Collection Being Sold Without Reserve
The single day sale through RM Sotheby's is set for September 28th in Ohio. Well-know late car collector, John Dixon's, collection of more than 30 highly sought after Porsches and Volkswagens is soon going under the hammer with no reserve set in the Taj Ma Garaj Collection. The auction is happening in Dayton, OH, and will feature over 350 lots of automobila and collectibles. John Dixon's obsession with the Porsche models started when he was passed by a 911 in his muscle car in high school - from there, he was blown away by the car. He bought his own Porsche a year later, and really got serious about his car collection in the 90s. The Taj Ma Garaj collection is now considered to be one of the most eclectic Porsche and Volkswagen collections, along with Porsche unobtainium, rare literature, collectibles, engines, and an assortment of arcade ephemera. The collection was opened by John to thousands of visitors and enthusiasts over the years."RM Sotheby's is honored to present the Taj Ma Garaj Collection on behalf of John's beloved wife Vickie and the Dixon family," says Senior Car Specialist Donnie Gould, RM Sotheby's.

Here's what Samsung's Galaxy Fold 2 could look like
If you rewind the clock back a bit to before Samsung's disastrous aborted launch of its Galaxy Fold smartphone that was supposed to have been in April, you may recall the company's lofty ambitious that looked beyond the first iteration of this new device. We were hearing estimates last year that Samsung wanted to start the Galaxy Fold's initial production run at a minimum of 1 million units and that the Fold also wouldn't be a one-off. That the company, in other words, was hoping to release a new version of the foldable phone every year, the same way it does with its Galaxy flagship devices.Fast forward to today. We still don't know when Samsung will try again for a release the Galaxy Fold, but it does appear the company is still thinking beyond it, in terms of other foldable devices.A new report out of Korea sheds light on future Samsung foldable smartphones, noting that at least two new foldables are currently in the works.In terms of the design, one of them -- perhaps the Galaxy Fold 2 -- is mentioned as folding vertically, with a sort of clamshell form factor and sporting a 6.7-inch OLED display. It's rumored to be set for a 2020 launch, which of course should be taken with a grain of salt since we still don't have Samsung's first try at this new kind of device yet.According to the report, this next foldable will be differentiated from what Samsung was trying to do with the original Galaxy Fold, which was an attempt to combine elements of a smartphone and tablet.

Illinois on Tuesday became the 11th U.S. state to legalize the recreational use of marijuana by adults after Governor J.B. Pritzker signed into law a bill that also provides for the removal of certain previous drug convictions and will generate new revenue for the financially troubled state. The Democratic governor hailed the measure, which was passed by the legislature last month, for allowing as many as 700,000 marijuana-related records and convictions to be erased. "This legislation will clear the cannabis-related records of nonviolent offenders through an efficient combination of automatic expungement, of gubernatorial pardon and individual court action," Pritzker said at a bill-signing event.

2018 Dodge Demon Could Be Yours
The Demon is a truly wicked modern classic muscle car. Few cars, modern or from any time period, can match the pure attitude of this 2018 Dodge Demon. While the pictures certainly make it apparent this is no regular Dodge Challenger, to see one in person you get the full effect. Even people who don't normally pay attention to cars will stop and notice this one. It's loud and the exterior screams aggression. This is the ride you want to turn heads and draw loads of stares. You have Petty's Garage to thank for the opportunity to own this car.The powertrain setup on the Demon is the stuff of legends. Out of the factory the 2.7-liter supercharger gulps tons of air. It feeds the 6.2-liter V8 engine with glee, pushing a peak 808-horsepower. It gets even better with a 3.09:1 gearing for the rear, dual fuel pumps, and so much more. NHRA certified it as the world's fastest production car for the quarter mile with a time of 9.65 seconds at 140 mph.Adding to the sinister nature of this car is the all-black exterior. The silky smooth paint job showcases the super wide ram air intake in the hood, the fender bulges, and even make the red Demon logos just in front of the doors jump out. An absence of brightwork almost screams at onlookers that they should be in awe to behold such a muscle machine.Of course, Petty's Garage has added some extra goodies to a car that's already loaded, making it that much sweeter. You get a Petty's Garage rear racing spoiler and custom painted graphics. In addition, the car rolls on custom 20-inch wheels with Continental tires for an even more compelling setup.

Iran drone downing highlights limitations of US unmanned aircraft
US drones have been a key tool in conflicts against insurgent organizations such as the Taliban and the Islamic State group, but Iran's downing of one of the aircraft highlights their limitations against more sophisticated adversaries. While drones offer the significant attraction of not putting American lives at risk and can stay aloft for more than a day, allowing for extended surveillance missions, they can be vulnerable to air defenses, are often expensive, and their loss can lead to sensitive hardware falling into the wrong hands. "I believe sophisticated air defenses will continue to have good chances to shoot down an aircraft like an RQ-4 whenever it is in position to do meaningful surveillance of their territories or other assets," he said, referring to the type of drone brought down by Iran last week near the strategic Strait of Hormuz.

Toy Car for a Grown Up: 2013 Camaro SS Hot Wheels Edition
This special edition of the Camaro has just 824 miles on its odometer.There's a somewhat common sentiment in the automotive world stating that when people get older, their toys only get bigger. A good example of this is the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro SS Hot Wheels Edition, which adds stylistic influence from the renowned toy maker to a muscle car with a V8 engine and a manual transmission. Mutual Enterprises in Springfield, Massachusetts offers this limited-production Camaro for sale, noting that the vehicle's single owner was a collector. What makes the Hot Wheels Edition special? First, there's the striking Kinetic Blue exterior paint color, which definitely isn't going to divert any attention away from this muscle car. Additionally, there are exclusive 21-inch alloy wheels and various bits of Hot Wheels badging.Inside the cabin, you'll find a black leather interior with red stitching, and of course, there are Hot Wheels logos embroidered into the seats. Because Chevrolet based this example on the SS trim, it also features a heads up information display.Incredibly, this Camaro only has 824 miles on the odometer.The Hot Wheels Edition was available as either a 2LT V6 or a 2SS V8 model. Luckily for potential buyers, this example is the latter, with its 6.2-liter V8 engine pairing to a manual transmission to drive the rear wheels. Also, the vehicle features a dual mode exhaust, which was a factory option.Mutual Enterprises is asking $34,995 for this special edition Camaro, which seems like a pretty stellar deal, considering the car co

The Republican-run Senate is working on its own version of the bill, and Republican President Donald Trump has vowed to veto the House legislation, with White House officials saying it would hamstring the administration's border enforcement efforts. Attorneys raised alarms last week after finding more than 300 migrant children in an overcrowded Texas border patrol station, where they said some had been held for weeks in squalid conditions without adequate food and water.

Elon Musk says he knows why Falcon Heavy's core booster missed its landing
SpaceX launched its Falcon Heavy rocket in the early hours of Tuesday morning, delivering 24 satellites into orbit and making many of its clients very happy in the process. The company nailed the landing of both side boosters, but the center core booster narrowly missed its landing and splashed down in the ocean instead.In the hours following the launch, SpaceX boss Elon Musk weighed in on the unfortunate fate of the core booster, offering a bit of an explanation as to why it missed its mark.In a response to a question on Twitter, Musk explained that the booster was likely damaged early in its descent back to Earth, and that this damage ultimately caused a failure and prevented the booster from being able to control itself enough to make a safe landing.https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1143690145255841797If the booster was indeed damaged as it began to head back towards Earth, it's actually rather impressive that it managed to make it as close to the drone ship as it did. At one point it appeared that it might come down perfectly, only to drift off to the side at the very last moment.SpaceX has now failed to stick the core booster landing with all three of its Falcon Heavy launches. It's not the end of the world, but securing that component could save the company a lot of cash in the long run and they'd like to be able to pull off the landing consistently.It's hardly a worst-case scenario for SpaceX if it has to spend a few boosters while it perfects its technique, especially since the rockets are

Boris Johnson Predicts ‘Million-to-One' Chance of No-Deal Brexit

"Do or die, come what may," he said. A day later he was walking that back, saying he didn't expect Britain to end up in no-deal limbo."I don't think that's where we're going to end up. I think it's a million to one against, but it is vital that we prepare," he told a leadership contest event Wednesday.Johnson has built a broad coalition of supporters within the Conservative Party, from arch-Brexiteers to modernizers who wanted to stay in the bloc.

An organization that searches for the remains of U.S. servicemen lost in past conflicts has found what officials believe are the graves of more than 30 Marines and sailors killed in one of the bloodiest battles of World War II. A team working on the remote Pacific atoll of Tarawa found the graves in March, said Mark Noah, president of the nonprofit History Flight. The remains are believed to belong to Marines and sailors from the 6th Marine Regiment killed during the last night of the three-day Battle of Tarawa.

Forget the Galaxy Note 10: Samsung is making a more affordable 5G phone
The Galaxy Note 10 is launching soon, complete with a brand new design and a few novel features, but this Samsung flagship will be at least as expensive as the Galaxy S10 series that launched earlier this year. And if you're gunning for a 5G version of the Note 10, then you'll have to pay even more. But Samsung is also doing something it hasn't done before; it's working on a brand new flagship device that won't be as expensive as the S10 or Note 10. Moreover, this rumored Galaxy A90 phone will deliver 5G connectivity as well as 45W charging speeds -- something that hasn't been available on any Samsung flagship to date. Leaks from the usual suspects say the Galaxy A90 will run on the same Qualcomm processor that powers some of the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 versions, including the 5G models. That's the Snapdragon 855, of course -- a chip found inside many of this year's Android flagships. https://twitter.com/OnLeaks/status/1143535173612556288 Both A90 models will also feature 6.7-inch displays with in-display fingerprint sensors, according to @OnLeaks, as well as triple lens cameras. However, the camera specs won't be identical. Also interesting is that the 5G phone won't have whatever Tilt optical image stabilization, whereas the 4G version will get it. Unlike the other Samsung flagships, the A90 isn't supposed to feature a front-facing camera. Instead, the triple-lens camera will have a pop-up rotary design which will let you use it for both selfies and regular photos. The other leaker that has referenc

Microsoft is reportedly testing two exciting new Surface models
A rumor earlier this week claimed that Microsoft is working on a Surface notebook based on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8cx platform that was designed for 2019 Windows 10 devices, and we now have more details on the matter.It appears that Microsoft wants to power a Surface Pro with the 8cx, which will be a custom version of Qualcomm's chip. Moreover, Microsoft is also looking at AMD processors for the Surface Laptop line, as it wants to explore options other than Intel.Microsoft's relationship with Intel is on "shaky ground," according to Petri, although it's unclear why. But Microsoft is testing ARM and AMD processors for its next-gen Surface models.The next Surface Laptop might come in an AMD version powered by a Picasso 12nm SoC. The Surface Pro 7, meanwhile, might launch with a custom Snapdragon 8cx inside -- one that's been developed on-campus in Redmond. Microsoft has been working closely with Qualcomm on this custom ARM chip, based on its own specs, so that it works better with Windows 10. The chip is codenamed Excalibur, a moniker that has been rumored before. The ARM Surface Pro laptop might be used as a reference device for other OEMs looking to develop their own 8cx Windows 10 notebooks.In spite of Microsoft's interest in AMD and ARM silicon, Intel-based Surface laptops will still be in stores this year, including brand new Surface Pro 7 and Surface Book models. The report notes that the Pro 7 will look a lot like last year's Pro 6, but it'll come with a USB-C connector and without Thunderbolt 3 funct

Senate Passes $4.6 Billion Border-Funding Bill after Rejecting Pelosi's Version
The Senate on Wednesday passed a $4.6 billion spending package to alleviate the ongoing crisis at the southern border, just moments after rejecting a similar emergency-funding bill advanced by House Democrats that included restrictions on the funding of certain border-enforcement measures.Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who shepherded the more restrictive spending bill through the House on Tuesday, announced her caucus's opposition to the Senate bill before it was voted on, ensuring a contentious reconciliation process between the two chambers before a final bill can be sent to President Trump's desk."They pass their bill, we respect that," Pelosi said Wednesday. "We passed our bill, we hope they would respect that. And there are some improvements that we think can be reconciled."Republican lawmakers have emphasized the urgency of the border crisis in asking their Democratic colleagues to avoid a protracted reconciliation process by passing the Senate spending bill immediately, before lawmakers leave town for the one-week July 4 recess.Addressing his colleagues on the Senate floor before the vote on Wednesday, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell emphasized the bipartisan support behind the upper chamber's spending bill, which ultimately passed 84-8."The House has not made much progress toward actually making a law, just more resistance theater," McConnell said. "The Senate has a better and more bipartisan way forward.""It's a productive compromise that would go a long way to

It appears to be a couple and their three children, risking their lives in the treacherous Rio Grande that divides Mexico from Texas.The father clutches a black backpack in his hand, the family's only luggage. On his back he's carrying a small boy wearing a rainbow-striped T-shirt. A little girl is on the woman's back, small arms clasped tightly around her mother's neck.A third child, older and taller, in a red shirt, between the two adults, is up to his chest in the water and clutching their wrists.

Deescalation Wanted: How Trump Can Steer Clear of a War
The escalation of tensions between Iran and the United States over the past weeks has the world on edge, with observers wondering how the contest will play out: will there be war? Or will there be some type of negotiated settlement—perhaps even one designed to merely avoid conflict for now? Or will both countries continue to live in a stalemate, forcing its citizens to wonder whenever they hear of a new incident whether it will lead to a war.The United States and Iran have engaged in a constant raising of the stakes as a means of securing leverage ahead of possible nuclear negotiations. This is a classic bargaining pattern but in the current context, such an approach is particularly risky due to the potential for misperceptions. The complexities of domestic and regional dynamics are also a factor. In such a situation, absent clear understanding of the other's motivations and tactics, raising the stakes—rather than securing leverage for effective negotiations—could steer the United States and Iran towards a path toward war.Following the U.S. unilateral withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in May 2018, Iran pursued what can be described as "strategic patience." This involved an effort to persuade Europe to provide the promised economic dividends of the JCPOA. But given the lack of tangible action to fulfill this pledge, Iranian president Hassan Rouhani announced in early May that Iran would, in accordance with Articles 26 and 36 of the JCPOA, reduce its compliance with the terms of the accor

Supreme Court's Conservative Justices Weigh Scrapping Another Precedent
(Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Supreme Court's conservative majority may be ready to overturn a longstanding precedent for the third time in recent weeks -- perhaps foreshadowing the vulnerability of its rulings on abortion rights.The justices will rule as early as Wednesday on a business-backed bid to overturn decades-old decisions that give federal agencies broad power to say what their regulations mean.The case is one of eight rulings due before the justices' term ends this week. The court also plans to rule on gerrymandered voting maps and the Trump administration's bid to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census.Another precedent-toppling ruling would extend a pattern that already has liberal justices sounding alarms. They've hinted that the five conservative justices may be eyeing the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, which legalized abortion nationwide."Today's decision can only cause one to wonder which cases the court will overrule next," dissenting Justice Stephen Breyer wrote last month when the court overruled a 1979 precedent to say that states are immune from private suits in another state's courts."Well, that didn't take long," Justice Elena Kagan wrote 39 days later when the court overturned part of a 1985 ruling and said people could go directly to federal court to claim that a government regulation unconstitutionally took private property without compensation.

John Roberts Isn't the Conservative You Thought He Was
Joe Raedle/GettyIn a surprise setback for small-government conservatives, Chief Justice John Roberts on Wednesday provided the swing vote to save a key piece of the administrative state: judicial deference to agency interpretations of regulations.That subject may sound arcane, but (for better or for worse) it is the bedrock of the regulatory state as we know it. And prior to today's surprise, conservatives thought this case was in the bag.Instead, thanks to Chief Justice Roberts, they lost big. Indeed, as angry as some conservatives still are over Roberts (twice) saving Obamacare, he now has defied expectations to save the administrative state as we know it. When agencies make regulations—environmental rules, labor standards, health regulations—they're routinely taken to court. It's almost part of the process at this point: Either corporations complain that the rules are too strict, or public-interest groups complain that they're too lax.But courts don't look at the rules from scratch. They defer to agencies' interpretations of the laws they enforce, in what's called Chevron deference, or to the regulations they have written, in what's called Auer deference. Auer deference was at issue in today's case, Kisor v. Wilkie.That deference doesn't mean that the agencies always win, but it means that in ambiguous cases, their interpretation of the statute or rule will prevail if it's reasonable—even if the court might prefer to interpret it a different way.The applications of this rule are infinite.

Credit: LetsGoDigitalThe render — made by Dutch tech site Let's Go Digital — shows what most rumors have already suggested: the Mini will allegedly have the Joy Con controllers permanently fused to its body. This render shows an entire console that's about the size of the current Switch's screen, which could make the new Switch pocket-friendly.While the Nintendo Switch Mini is by no means "mini" in size — at least not as small as the Game Boy Micro compared to the Game Boy Advance — it certainly looks significantly smaller than the regular Nintendo Switch.The Mini will reportedly be a handheld-only console, meaning that it won't be able to connect to a TV like the regular Switch.Credit: HonsonThe original leak came from Chinese gaming accessory company HonSon, which posted a render online of what they claimed will be the Switch Mini.

Supreme Court Rebuffs Businesses, Won't Topple Regulation Precedent
(Bloomberg) -- A divided U.S. Supreme Court rejected calls by business groups to overturn two decades-old rulings that have given federal agencies broad power to interpret their own regulations.Voting 5-4 on the central issues, the court on Wednesday reaffirmed rulings from 1945 and 1997 that require judges to defer to an agency on ambiguous regulations as long as its approach is reasonable.Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court's liberals in the majority. Writing for the court, Justice Elena Kagan rejected contentions that federal agencies have grown too powerful and that judges should have the primary responsibility for interpreting unclear regulations."It is no answer to the growth of agencies for courts to take over their expertise-based, policymaking functions," Kagan wrote. Her opinion laid out new guidelines for when courts should yield to agencies.Business groups said deference to agencies on the meaning of regulations leads to onerous and unpredictable rules and leaves companies vulnerable to penalties when an agency shifts its thinking. Trade groups representing the oil, mining, farming and manufacturing industries were among those urging the court to jettison the prior rulings.Defenders of the earlier rulings said they give agencies flexibility to account for changing circumstances.The ruling came on the penultimate opinion day of the court's nine-month term. The court will issue its final opinions Thursday and is expected to rule on partisan gerrymandering and the Trump administration's bid to include a citizenship question on the 2020 census form. The case is Kisor v. Wilkie, 18-15.(Updates with excerpts from opinion in fourth paragraph.)To contact t

This 1974 Oldsmobile Toronado contains some unique designs plus a sophisticated aura not available with many other cars from its era.

Inspecting the body in the supplied photos, you won't find any apparent major damage to the exterior. All the panels seem to be straight, free of rust, and the paint is in good repair. Chrome front and rear bumpers plus trim pieces are polished to a nice shine. The red vinyl top as a fiery splash of color and is quite presentable. Factory wheels also don't show damage, while whitewall tires keep with the period-correct presentation. On the interior, a red cloth upholstery, carpets, dash, and door panels add a flair you only get a hint at with the roof on the exterior. Wood-grain dash inlays, the OE steering wheel, and original controls keep everything authentic to the core.

Mueller Sets Up Airing of Trump Probe With Risks for Both Sides
(Bloomberg) -- Special Counsel Robert Mueller agreed to testify publicly before two House panels, setting up a dramatic hearing that promises to reinvigorate the national debate over his findings on Russian election interference and possible obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump.Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler and Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, both Democrats, announced the July 17 joint hearing on the eve of Wednesday's first Democratic presidential debate, where several of the candidates on the Miami stage are likely to remind viewers that they support an impeachment inquiry of the president.The chairmen said that Mueller, who issued his report in April, would appear in an open session and that he had agreed to the appearance under subpoenas.The session, sure to be televised live, sets up one of the most dramatic hearings of the Trump presidency -- and a confrontation between Democrats who have been pursuing investigations of the president since they took control of the House and Trump's Republican supporters who dismissed the inquiries as fishing expeditions.Until now, the White House has stymied investigations by Nadler, Schiff and other House Democratic chairmen by refusing to let present and former officials appear.Mueller said in his report that he couldn't conclude whether Trump's 2016 campaign conspired with Russia and also couldn't exonerate the president from attempting to obstruct the investigation.Trump has repeatedly denounced the inquiry and steadfastly denied any wrongdoi
