Appeals court overturns conviction of 'Making a Murderer' inmate

Appeals court overturns conviction of 'Making a Murderer' inmate A three-judge panel of the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago ruled 2-1 to uphold a federal judge's ruling last year that overturned Dassey's conviction for a 2005 murder. Magistrate Judge William Duffin had ruled in August that the conviction was based on a coerced confession that Dassey, now 27, gave as a 16-year-old with a learning disability. Duffin ordered Dassey freed in November, but his release was halted while Wisconsin authorities appealed the decision.

Man invents tsunami sensor, internet obsesses over his dog

Man invents tsunami sensor, internet obsesses over his dog This pensive dog upstaged his owner and wasn't even aware of it. SEE ALSO: Friendly island doggo followed a street view mapper and photobombed all his shots Inventor Jerry Paros posed for a photograph for an article in the publication Nature about his invention — an ultra precise quartz sensor that could contribute to an early-warning system designed to detect shifts in the sea floor that cause tsunamis. Tsunamis are caused primarily by earthquakes that occur in the seafloor, since rapid shifts in elevation can generate waves that cross oceans in a matter of several hours. In 2011, a massive tsunami hit northern Japan following a magnitude 9.0 earthquake off the coast, resulting in the meltdown of nuclear reactors at the Fukashima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. The article and the photograph were shared on Nature's Twitter page.  Meet the man hoping to transform the way we gather data from the seafloor to detect the next big earthquake: https://t.co/GmICfBMSDR pic.twitter.com/zvRlwpyADX — Nature News&Comment (@NatureNews) June 21, 2017 While many found the article interesting, most people were busy obsessing over Paros' photobombing canine companion.

T-Mobile is having network problems across the country, reports show

T-Mobile is having network problems across the country, reports show

T-Mobile users across the country have woken up to widespread network outages. According to reports on the Down Detector and Twitter, thousands of users are having problems getting any data connectivity, even if a cell signal is still showing.

The Down Detector map shows reports across the country, with a concentration on the East Coast. It could be a problem with a regional data center, or a nationwide problem that isn't being reported yet on the West Coast, thanks to the time difference.

T-Mobile has not publicly issued a statement yet, but is responding to individual users on the official @TMobile Twitter page, saying that they're looking into the issue.

Some users say that turning LTE off can get data service working on 3G, but that's a temporary fix at best. For the time being, staying on Wi-Fi and turning your device on and off every hour or two is likely the best solution.

Assuming that the outage is related to a software issue in T-Mobile's network, you can assume that a fix is being worked on at speed. Turning your device on and off forces it to re-register on the local cell tower, which means you'll get connectivity back as soon as the problem is resolved on T-Mobile's end.

Obamacare replacement bill takes center stage in U.S. Senate

Obamacare replacement bill takes center stage in U.S. Senate By Richard Cowan and Susan Cornwell WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A seven-year push by U.S. Republicans to dismantle Obamacare and kill the taxes it imposed on the wealthy will reach a critical juncture on Thursday when Senate Republican leaders unveil a draft bill they aim to put to a vote, possibly as early as next week. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his lieutenants have worked in secret for weeks on the bill, which is expected to curb Obamacare's expanded Medicaid help for the poor and reshape subsidies to low-income people for private insurance. The subsidies are expected to be linked to recipients' income in the Senate bill, a "major improvement" from a measure approved last month by the U.S. House of Representatives that tied them solely to age, Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine said.

Donald Trump explains why he wouldn't want a 'poor person' in his cabinet

Donald Trump explains why he wouldn't want a 'poor person' in his cabinet "Drain the swamp" was one of the most memorable slogans of Donald Trump's presidential campaign. It was used to condemn Hillary Clinton's perceived cosiness with Wall Street types.  SEE ALSO: We turned the key UK election figures into glorious Top Trump cards So Mr Trump's declaration that he wouldn't appoint a poor person to a cabinet position has raised eyebrows.  During a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Trump doubled down on those who questioned his appointment of super rich banker Wilbur Ross as Secretary of Commerce.  Remarkable clip from tonight where Trump explains why only rich people should be in charge of economic policy."I don't want a poor person" pic.twitter.com/HdWFg0aU1t — Judd Legum (@JuddLegum) June 22, 2017 "I said, 'Because that's the kind of thinking we want ... because they're representing the country. They don't want the money." "And I love all people — rich or poor — but in those particular positions, I just don't want a poor person," Trump said. "Does that make sense? If you insist, I'll do it — but I like it better this way." That seems to directly contradict the whole anti-Wall Street rhetoric Trump was were elected on.  For example, during the 2016 primary election Trump said: "I know the guys at Goldman Sachs. They have total, total control over [Ted Cruz] ... just like they have total control over Hillary Clinton."  Hmmmm.  WATCH: Step up your taco Tuesday game with this tortilla toaster

Islamic State blows up historic Mosul mosque where it declared 'caliphate': Iraqi military

Islamic State blows up historic Mosul mosque where it declared 'caliphate': Iraqi military By Marius Bosch and Maher Chmaytelli MOSUL/ERBIL, Iraq (Reuters) - Islamic State militants on Wednesday blew up the Grand al-Nuri Mosque of Mosul and its famous leaning minaret, an Iraqi military statement said, as Iraqi forces seeking to expel the group from the city closed in on the site. It was from this medieval mosque three years ago that the militants' leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared a self-styled "caliphate" spanning parts of Syria and Iraq. Islamic State's Amaq news agency accused American aircraft of destroying the mosque, a claim swiftly denied by the U.S.-led international coalition fighting the hardline Sunni group.

There are also Democratic warnings that Ossoff’s tepid handling of President Trump misfired.
