JPMorgan Chase & Co and Wells Fargo & Co. made similar commitments to stop financing private prison companies earlier this year. Activism against the financing of private prisons has increased amid tightening immigration policies under U.S. President Donald Trump and concerns about detention conditions. Private detention centers account for about two-thirds of people held by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, S&P Global Ratings estimated last year.

The court ruled that the right of Andre Haymond to face a jury trial under the U.S. Constitution's Sixth Amendment was violated when a judge unilaterally imposed an additional prison sentence after Haymond violated the terms of his supervised release. Haymond originally was sentenced to just over three years in prison and 10 years of supervised release after being convicted by a jury in 2010 of possessing pornographic images involving children. After completing his sentence, Haymond was found in 2015 in possession of 59 additional images.

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. "Now one may wonder yet again."Both of those were 5-4 decisions, with Chief Justice John Roberts and the ot

Here's the Rumored Nintendo Switch Mini Compared to the Current Switch
A few days ago we saw a possible render of the fabled Nintendo Switch Mini, a smaller version of the current Nintendo Switch. Here's a new render showing how the former looks compared to the latter. 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. HonSon seems to be readying a case for the new console, which looks similar in size to the good old PlayStation Portable.A new Switch 2 is also expected, although Nintendo has denied its existence. The first rumors about the new Switch models came out in October 2018. Last March, new rumors claimed that Nintendo would release a Switch 2 "for hardcore gamers" and a "miniature model" without detachable Joy-Cons at a lower price. The Wall Street Journal cla

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.

How lifeless body of toddler came to be slumped by dead father in river on US-Mexico border
The city of Matamoros sits tantalisingly close to the US border, with Brownville, Texas in clear view over the Gateway International Bridge.  It was here that the Salvadoran refugee Oscar Alberto Martinez Ramirez, 25, and his 23-month-old daughter, Valeria, arrived to claim asylum in the United States two months ago.  But on Monday, their drowned bodies were found locked in a final embrace, Valeria tangled up in her father's black t-shirt, on the banks of the Rio Grande river, which runs under the bridge.  The shocking photograph of their corpses, now broadcast around the world, illustrates the plight of migrants and refugees who are making increasingly perilous attempts to reach the United States.  But the story of what drove them to attempt the fatal river crossing also raises questions about the Trump administration's border regime, which is turning refugees away from the border or cramming them into purgatorial reception centres.   From the scorching Sonoran Desert to the fast-moving Rio Grande, the 2,000-mile border has long been a deadly crossing between ports of entry. A total of 283 migrant deaths were recorded last year; the toll so far this year has already reached 170.   Mexican Migrants Journey According to local media reports, Mr Ramirez had grown frustrated with the processing system at the Puerta México migrant camp, and felt there was little hope of his request for asylum ever being processed.  The US government claims the applications

Iran's supreme leader said Wednesday that Iranians will not budge or change their stand following new U.S. sanctions targeting Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and his associates, the latest in a torrent of sharp verbal responses from Tehran in the wake of the measures. President Donald Trump enacted the new sanctions against Khamenei and others on Monday and U.S. officials also said they plan sanctions against Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif. The sanctions followed Iran's downing last week of a U.S. surveillance drone, worth over $100 million, over the Strait of Hormuz, sharply escalating the crisis.

U.A.E. Splits With U.S. Over Blame for Oil Tanker Attack in May
(Bloomberg) -- The United Arab Emirates appeared to distance itself from U.S. claims that pinned attacks on oil tankers near the Strait of Hormuz on Iran."Honestly we can't point the blame at any country because we don't have evidence," Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan said on Wednesday in Moscow. "If there is a country that has the evidence, then I'm convinced that the international community will listen to it. But we need to make sure the evidence is precise and convincing."While an investigation by the U.A.E., Norway and Saudi Arabia concluded that a "state actor" was most likely behind the incident in May, no nation was singled out. Still, U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton has said that Iran was almost certainly responsible.The attack predated the pair of strikes in the Gulf of Oman this month that the U.S. has also blamed on Iran. Vessels were targeted off the U.A.E. coast in May as they made their way toward the Strait of Hormuz, the world's foremost oil shipping chokepoint.Iran's foreign minister has labeled Bolton and the leaders of the U.A.E., Israel and Saudi Arabia as the "B-team" that's prodding President Donald Trump into going to war with the Islamic Republic. Trump slapped new sanctions on Tehran this week.With tensions on the rise across the Middle East, the U.A.E.'s top diplomat tried to change tack after talks in Moscow with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov."We are in a region that is tense and important for the world and we don't want more tension," said Sheikh Abdulla

NRA shuts down production at TV channel amid leadership coup attempt and legal troubles
The National Rifle Association has shut down production at NRA TV.The NRA on Tuesday also severed all business with its estranged advertising firm, Ackerman McQueen, which operates NRA TV, the NRA's live broadcasting media arm, according to interviews and documents reviewed by The New York Times.While NRA TV may continue to air past content, its live broadcasting will end and its on-air personalities - Ackerman employees who included Dana Loesch — will no longer be the public faces of the NRA.It remained unclear whether the NRA might try to hire some of those employees, but there was no indication it was negotiating to do so.The move comes amid a flurry of lawsuits between the NRA and Ackerman, and increasing acrimony that surfaced after two prominent NRA board members first criticised NRA TV in an article in The Times in March. The separation had become inevitable: The two sides said last month that they were ending their three-decade-plus partnership."Many members expressed concern about the messaging on NRA TV becoming too far removed from our core mission: defending the Second Amendment," Wayne LaPierre, the NRA's longtime chief executive, wrote in a message to members that was expected to be sent out by Wednesday."So, after careful consideration, I am announcing that starting today, we are undergoing a significant change in our communications strategy.

A House Dem Calls for Investigating Trump Sexual Assault Allegations as Her Colleagues Shrug
Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call/GettyAs yet another woman comes forward to accuse President Donald Trump of sexual assault, a Democratic member of Congress is now calling for a formal investigation into the roughly two dozen similar allegations against Trump.Rep. Jackie Speier, a California Democrat who sits on the House's Oversight and Reform Committee and is a leader on the Hill on sexual harassment, said Congress should look into these accusations after writer E. Jean Carroll published a book in which she detailed an alleged violent sexual encounter with Trump over 20 years ago. "We do have a lot on our plates, so I can't speak to when it's going to happen," said Speier in a brief interview with The Daily Beast on Tuesday. But she affirmed it was worth lawmakers' time, especially in light of Carroll's story."This particular case is particularly egregious, and there's no reason not to believe the woman," said Speier. "I think his problem is, he sees that as a way of wooing a woman and women see it as sexual assault or rape."A House Democratic aide told The Daily Beast that the Carroll accusations had some party lawmakers considering an investigation into her story and the many others.

Robert Mueller to testify publicly to Congress over Russian probe
Robert Mueller, the US Special Counsel who issued a report in April on Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, has agreed to testify publicly next month after two House panels issued subpoenas to him. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said in a joint statement that the special counsel has agreed to testify about the report he issued in April about possible Russian connections to Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign. The Justice Department declined to comment. Mr Schiff told reporters shortly after the announcement that Mr Mueller was reluctant to testify but agreed to honour the subpoenas. He said there would be two hearings on July 17 "back to back," one for each committee, and they will also meet with him in closed session afterwards. The committees have been in negotiations with Mr Mueller for more than two months about his testimony. But he has been hesitant to testify and speak about the investigation beyond a public statement he issued last month. In a letter to Mr Mueller accompanying the subpoenas, the committee chairmen said "the American public deserves to hear directly from you about your investigation and conclusions."

Microsoft might beat Apple to market with an ARM-powered laptop
Apple is expected to replace Intel chips that typically power MacBooks with ARM-based creations of its own, and we keep seeing rumors pointing in that direction. But while Apple hasn't confirmed that it's working on A-series processors that could deliver desktop-grade performance, its partner (and rival) Qualcomm has already launched a bunch of ARM processors that can run Windows.The latest one is the Snapdragon 8cx that has been engineered specifically for notebook use. And that's the platform Microsoft might use on an upcoming Surface laptop.Windows Central's Zac Bowden said on Twitter that the latest Surface codename to keep an eye out for is "Excalibur," which is reportedly powered by an 8cx processor:https://twitter.com/zacbowden/status/1143220716273356801Just a couple of months ago, we saw a Snapdragon 8cx laptop at Computex 2019, meant to demo 5G connectivity on notebooks. Qualcomm, of course, is also pushing its 5G chips, which power several of the 5G smartphones that are available in stores, including the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G and the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G.At the time, Qualcomm partnered with Lenovo on the "Project Limitless" device, although we have no idea when this laptop will launch. Microsoft, on the other hand, is already rumored to be working on dual-display and foldable devices, with a foldable Surface tablet/laptop expected in the first half of 2020. It's unclear whether the Excalibur is related to any of these products. However, using a Snapdragon 8cx platform, complete with 5G connectivity on a fo

Mexico's president vowed Tuesday to investigate the controversial detention of migrants trying to cross the US border, saying the 15,000 troops he has deployed there have no such orders. President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, a leftist who took office in December vowing to protect migrants' rights, has come under fire over an AFP journalist's images last week of heavily armed National Guardsmen forcibly detaining two women and a girl at the Rio Grande river, across from El Paso, Texas. International law protects the right of undocumented migrants to cross borders to seek asylum, and Mexico had not typically stopped them from doing so at its northern border.

Fox's Shep Smith Torches Trump: We Treat Migrant Children Worse Than Prisoners of War
Fox News anchor Shepard Smith on Tuesday strongly objected to President Donald Trump's assertion that migrant children detained in border detention centers are being treated "very well," pointing out that the conditions these children face would be in violation of the Geneva Convention.After his acting Customs and Border Protection chief John Sanders revealed he resigned from his position amid furor over reports of squalid and filthy conditions at overcrowded detention camps, the president insisted to reporters that he is "very concerned" with the issue. At the same time, he claimed the conditions were "much better than they were under President Obama."Shortly after Trump made his comments, Smith told Fox News viewers that because Trump said "we're treating the children very well," he was going to provide actual reporting on "how those children are being treated."Highlighting the "horrendous conditions" at a detention facility in Clint, Texas, the Fox News anchor noted that one lawyer said children less than 10 years of age were taking care of infants and toddlers."Their clothes covered in snot," Smith added. "No access to toothbrushes or toothpaste or soap. Basic necessities for any of us and all the more so for children."Referencing a segment from his Monday broadcast, Smith went on to highlight just how awful these kids' living conditions were."We reported accurately here yesterday that were these prisoners of war instead of innocent children, those withholding of t

The iPhones arriving this September will feature more cameras than ever, according to various leaks from the past few months. Apple is said to be bringing triple-lens cameras to the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max, while the iPhone XR successor will get a dual-lens shooter. Apple will likely bake a bunch of extra camera features into iOS 13 to take advantage of the additional lens, but these have yet to leak.A new story from the UK, meanwhile, does mention a camera feature that Apple has abandoned because of costs.Apple is believed to be the major Nanoco client that canceled a multi-million dollar deal, per The Telegraph, which crashed its stock by 74%. If this kind of stock behavior sounds familiar, it's because it happened in the past with UK companies that lost lucrative supply deals with Apple.Nanoco would not confirm the identity of the customer, but the company did announce a contract with a "large undisclosed US listed corporation" in 2018 valued at £17.1 million ($21.75 million) over two years, which amounted to more than half its revenues. The Telegraph believes that company to be Apple.The two parties were working on advanced image sensors that should have been featured in this year's iPhones, but Apple apparently abandoned Nanoco's quantum dot technology in favor of an alternative.Quantum dot technology allows for "precise control of light that allows for higher-quality digital camera sensors than the silicon ones in today's smartphones," the report notes, adding that quantum dot t

Man slashes own throat in court during trial for murder of Tinder date
A man accused of killing his roommate's Tinder date slashed his own neck during the murder trial on Monday while screaming in the courtroom. Aubrey Trail, a 52-year-old from Nebraska, yelled "Bailey is innocent, and I curse you all" before swiping something across his neck.Deputies rushed to help Mr Trail as he lay bleeding on the floor. Mr Trail was referring to his 25-year-old former roommate Bailey Boswell when he cut himself. The two have been charged with first-degree murder in the killing and dismemberment of 24-year-old Sydney Loofe. It was unclear how badly Mr Trail was injured during the incident. The judge presiding over the case ordered the jury to return on Tuesday morning.Authorities said Mr Trail has suffered declining health while in custody. He reportedly had a stroke and two heart attacks since his arrest.Ms Loofe went missing in November 2017 after going on a date with Mr Boswell, who she reportedly met on the dating app Tinder. Mr Trail was Mr Boswell's roommate at the time of the alleged murder.Prosecutors have said the two men planned Ms Loofe's abduction and killing. Mr Trail's attorneys have argued her death was the result of an accident that occurred during a consensual sex fantasy. Mr Boswell is still awaiting trial.Additional reporting by AP

Is Trump Really Headed to War With Iran? Here is What Two Experts Think
America's policy of maximum pressure on Iran continues, with the U.S. Department of the Treasury announcing new sanctions on eight Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Commanders. That directive was tweeted during a luncheon event on Iran at the Center for the National Interest, which was moderated by Geoffrey Kemp, the Senior Director of Regional Security Programs at CFTNI who also served in the White House during the first Reagan administration as Special Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs and Senior Director for Near East and South Asian Affairs on the National Security Council Staff. The discussion focused on the ongoing crisis, Iran and America's interests, and whether war could be avoided."[Donald] Trump's approach is self-defeating," declared panelist Kenneth Pollack, Resident Scholar for Middle Eastern Political-Military Affairs at the American Enterprise Institute, and both a former Director for Near East and South Asian Affairs and a former Director for Persian Gulf Affairs at the National Security Council. Pollack explained that the hardliners keep claiming vindication, noting that they had warned that the United States might tear up the Iran deal. Pollack emphasized that Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei started in the moderate camp but has drifted steadily toward a hardline position.At the time of the Iran Deal in 2015, there was a debate between "the pragmatists led by Rouhani" and "the hardliners led by the IRGC."

US border chief resigns amid outcry over treatment of migrant children
The acting commissioner of the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency, John Sanders, is resigning and will leave his post on July 5, amid an outcry over the treatment of detained migrant children. His departure comes amid mounting public backlash over alarmingly unsanitary conditions at an overcrowded migrant facility in Clint, Texas where the discovery of poor care and lack of access to showers or clean clothing prompted the relocation of 250 detained children. The situation has led immigration activists and Democrats to step up criticism of President Donald Trump's hard-line immigration policies. Mr Sanders, whose resignation was first reported by The New York Times, has led the agency since April, when Mr Trump reshuffled the management of US immigration agencies under the Department of Homeland Security. Before taking over CBP, he was the agency's chief operating officer and had also been the Transportation Security Administration's chief technology officer. A temporary detention facility in Clint, Texas Credit: AFP Mr Trump said he had not ask for Mr Sanders to quit, calling him a good man and saying he did not know why he decided to resign. Dealing with a surge of migrants at the US -Mexico border has been a priority for Mr Trump - but the president has proven unable to push most of his goals through Congress.

Rothmans Replica: 1983 Porsche 911 SC Safari
While it may be a replica of the real deal, this 911 SC is ready for rallying.One of the coolest things about the 1980s was production-based racecars, which were born in order to satisfy motorsport homologation requirements. Nowadays, these vehicles are extremely valuable, due to the fact that many of them were purposefully used and driven hard.Porsche's iconic 911 is one of these vehicles where ownership is expensive, with many examples being restoration items that are usually reserved for collectors. However, this 1983 Porsche 911 SC is both restored and ready for hard driving, as it is a replica of the Rothman East African Safari 911SCRS racecar.Trissl Sports Cars in Florence, Alabama offers this unique Porsche for sale. When the car arrived with them, it needed a full restoration after sitting in a field for 20 years. At that point, they decided to pay tribute to one of their favorite racecars of all time.Martin's Classic Cars in Huntsville, AL rebuilt the 3.0-liter engine, and it features upgrades such as ported and polished heads from Ollie's Engineering, an improved carburetor, Dougherty Camshafts, and race cams. Additionally, the transmission received a reseal and it utilizes a lightweight clutch kit. Trissl believes that there are around 100 miles on the engine build, but they do not have sufficient documentation to prove this, so the vehicle is sold with the true miles unknown.Vintage Auto Craft in Nashville, TN handled the paint on this Porsche, using pictures and measurements from the original Rothmans car to perfect its look.

Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro's ex-spy chief reveals new details of plot topple him
The former spy chief to embattled Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro has revealed new details of the plot to oust him including code names, secret meetings and a back channel to the Americans.  Gen. Manuel Ricardo Cristopher Figuera, who fled the country after the plot collapsed in May, laid bare the full scale of the plan during an interview with The Washington Post.  Mr Figuera was head of the Venezuelan intelligence police force SEBIN but became disillusioned with Mr Maduro's leadership as the country spiraled into economic and political chaos this year.  The decision by Juan Guaido, an opposition politician and leader of the National Assembly, to declare himself interim president in January triggered months of turmoil, splitting the international community.  Mr Figuera said that while in post he was taken aback by Mr Maduro's apparent reliance on Raul Castro, the former brother of Fidel Castro who until last year was the Cuban president.  He said that once Mr Maduro interrupted a meeting when Mr Castro called and said after the conversation that a team of Cuban technicians would be dispatched to help stop power outages.  "Raul Castro was like an adviser for Maduro," Mr Figuera said. The comments add to US claims that Cuba as well as Russia is helping prop up Mr Maduro's regime.  Mr Figuera also made allegations against Iris Varela, Mr Maduro's prisons minister, claiming she demanded 30,000 rifles to arm male prisoners she had trained up.  The al

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. The focus this next time around will supposedly be on "portability," and it

Jeremy Hunt rules Britain out of US-Iran war as Donald Trump and Hassan Rouhani exchange insults
Donald Trump threatened Iran with "obliteration" after the country's president questioned his mental health for imposing sanctions against the Islamic Republic's supreme leader.  The exchange of insults came as Britain ruled itself out of a potential war between the two sides.  Jeremy Hunt, the foreign secretary, told the Commons on Tuesday: "The US is our closest ally, we talk to them the whole time, we consider any requests that they say carefully, but I cannot envisage any situation where they request or we agree to any moves to go to war. "The message we are sending with our partners in the European Union particularly the French and the Germans is that with respect to Iran's nuclear programme, this is a crucial week."
