'They died in each other's arms,' migrant's mother says

'They died in each other's arms,' migrant's mother says Óscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez and his daughter Valeria were swept away by the current near Matamoros, Mexico, and Brownsville, Texas, this week. The grim photo shows the girl tucked inside her father's shirt for protection with her arm draped over his neck — an image that underscores the dangers migrants and asylum-seekers face trying to make it to the United States and the desperate measures they resort to in the face of policies designed to deter them. "It's tough, it's kind of shocking, that image," the 25-year-old man's mother, Rosa Ramírez, told The Associated Press.


Microsoft is reportedly testing two exciting new Surface models

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 functionality.A Surface Pro redesign has been postponed to 2020, while the rumored dual-screen Centaurus device isn't expected to launch this year -- unless Microsoft can justify the need for such hardware.


UPDATE 3-U.S. FAA identifies new risk on Boeing 737 MAX

UPDATE 3-U.S. FAA identifies new risk on Boeing 737 MAX The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has identified a new potential risk that Boeing Co must address on its 737 MAX before the grounded jet can return to service, the agency said on Wednesday. The risk was discovered during a simulator test last week and it is not yet clear if the issue can be addressed with a software upgrade or will require a more complex hardware fix, sources with knowledge of the matter told Reuters. The FAA did not elaborate on the latest setback for Boeing, which has been working to get its best-selling airplane back in the air following a worldwide grounding in March in the wake of two deadly crashes within five months.


Supreme Court’s Conservative Justices Weigh Scrapping Another Precedent

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 other Republican appointees -- Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh -- in the majority.Ducking AbortionSo far, the court has largely sidestepped the explosive topic of abortion. In May, the court turned away Indiana’s bid to bar abortions based on a fetus’s race or gender or a risk of genetic disorder -- an appeal that could have raised new doubts about Roe. The justices did uphold a separate Indiana law requiring clinics to bury or cremate fetal remains.The court could provide new signals about its intentions on abortion this week. The justices are due to say whether they’ll consider Alabama’s effort to ban the most common method used for women in their second trimester of pregnancy.The court under Roberts has actually overturned precedents at a slower rate than previous courts, says Jonathan Adler, a constitutional law professor at Case Western Reserve School of Law. Before this term started, the Roberts court had issued only 13 rulings that overturned a precedent, according to data from the Government Printing Office, he says.But Roberts, who took his seat in 2005, has never had a conservative majority as reliable as the one he got when the Senate confirmed Kavanaugh to succeed the retired Anthony Kennedy.“It is certainly possible either that the court may become more aggressive going forward or that the cases in which the court reconsiders precedents will have a greater ideological uniformity,” Adler said.Adler is among those urging the court to overturn a 1997 ruling, Auer v. Robbins, that requires judges to defer to a federal agency’s interpretation of its own regulations, as long as its approach is reasonable.Business groups say that ruling, along with a related 1945 decision, leads to onerous and unpredictable rules and leaves companies vulnerable to penalties when an agency shifts its thinking. Defenders of the rulings say they give agencies flexibility to account for changing circumstances.Religion and GerrymandersThe regulation, property-rights and sovereign-immunity cases are among the four appeals this term that squarely asked the justices to topple at least one precedent.The fourth one split the court in an unusual way last week. The court had been asked to overturn a rule that lets states and the federal government file separate criminal charges over the same conduct without violating the Constitution’s ban on double jeopardy.The court refused on a 7-2 vote, reaffirming precedents dating to the middle of the 19th century. Alito’s majority opinion said the case for keeping precedents “grows in proportion to their antiquity.” An unlikely pair of justices -- Gorsuch and liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg -- dissented.Three other cases have raised questions about precedents, though less directly. In backing hunting rights in Wyoming for the Crow Indian Tribe, a majority that included the four liberals and Gorsuch said an 1896 ruling had previously been “repudiated.”In ruling last week that a 40-foot cross could remain in a Maryland public intersection as a war memorial, a majority of justices criticized, without overruling, a 1971 decision that set up a three-part test for assessing whether government support for religion goes too far.And the gerrymandering cases could topple a 1986 ruling that said voting maps could be challenged as too partisan, though the justices in that case couldn’t agree on a standard for doing so. Paul Clement, the lawyer defending a Republican-drawn North Carolina congressional map, told Roberts during arguments in March that the court might need to overturn that ruling.‘Jolt to the System’At the center of it all is Roberts, who said in his 2005 Senate confirmation hearing that overruling a precedent is a “jolt to the legal system.” He has tended to take a multi-step approach toward questioning a precedent, signaling concern in a preliminary case before voting to overturn it altogether.“His favorite methodology seems to be to essentially chip away at cases in various steps so that the day that the case is actually overruled it’s really not even news, it’s been coming for a couple of years,” Clement said last month at a symposium co-hosted by the conservative Heritage Foundation and Bradley Foundation.Writing the majority opinion in the property-rights case last week, Roberts said the 1985 Williamson County v. Hamilton Bank ruling relied on “exceptionally ill-founded reasoning,” had been repeatedly criticized by justices over the years and had proven “unworkable in practice.”It’s still too early to judge how Roberts will act toward precedents now that he has a stronger conservative majority, Adler said.“Like a lot of people I’m curious if the chief is going to become more aggressive, but I’m not willing to say that we can be sure of that yet,” said Adler.To contact the reporter on this story: Greg Stohr in Washington at gstohr@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Joe Sobczyk at jsobczyk@bloomberg.net, Laurie Asséo, John HarneyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.


Saudi envoy blasts UN expert's report on Khashoggi killing

Saudi envoy blasts UN expert's report on Khashoggi killing In what amounted to a face-off at the U.N's top human rights body, Ambassador Abdulaziz Alwasil insisted that special rapporteur Agnes Callamard had failed to follow proper procedures and used flawed sourcing in her 101-page report made public last week. "Accusations have been launched, and fingers have been pointed — (she is) supporting herself on non-credible articles or sources," he told the Human Rights Council, in Arabic through a U.N. interpreter.

‘Trump is responsible’: Democrats, celebrities and activists react to photo of drowned father and toddler

‘Trump is responsible’: Democrats, celebrities and activists react to photo of drowned father and toddler Democratic presidential hopefuls, activists, celebrities and Mexican politicians were among those who responded with horror to a widely shared photograph of a drowned El Salvadorean man and his 23-month-old daughter.The bodies of Oscar Alberto Martinez Ramirez and his daughter Valeria were found face down in the Rio Grande, which lies along part of the US-Mexico border.The toddler was found tucked into her father’s t-shirt. Her arm was draped across his neck, suggesting that she was clutching him in her final moments.Julia Le Duc, a journalist, took the photograph. It was later published in La Jornada, a Mexican newspaper.The deaths prompted furious reactions from some politicians, who blamed the Trump administration for the humanitarian crisis at the US-Mexico border.Many openly linked the White House’s anti-immigration policies to the tragedy.“Trump is responsible for these deaths,” said Beto O’Rourke, who is campaigning for the Democratic presidential nomination.“As his administration refuses to follow our laws – preventing refugees from presenting themselves for asylum at our ports of entry – they cause families to cross between ports, ensuring greater suffering & death. At the expense of our humanity, not to the benefit of our safety.”Kamala Harris, a California senator also running for the nomination, struck a similar tone.“These families are often fleeing extreme violence,” she said on Twitter.“And what happens when they arrive? Trump says ‘Go back to where you came from.’ That is inhumane.“Children are dying,” she added."This is a stain on our moral conscience.”> There’s nothing criminal about seeking a better life for your family. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again now—we have to do the right thing and decriminalize border crossing.> > — Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) > > June 26, 2019Cory Booker, senator for New Jersey, said: "We should not look away. These are the consequences of Donald Trump’s inhumane and immoral immigration policy. This is being done in our name.“There’s nothing criminal about seeking a better life for your family.”Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, the prime minister of Mexico, said the incident was “very regrettable”. Mexico has come under pressure from the US in recent months to reduce the number of people crossing the border.“We have always denounced that as there is more rejection in the United States, there are people who lose their lives in the desert or crossing [the river],” Mr Obrador said.The White House is yet to comment on the Rio Grande tragedy.Many Central Americans have fled their home countries after a surge in violence and poverty in the region, prompting Mr Trump to declare an emergency at the border.Some groups, like Ramirez and his family, hope to seek asylum in the US.The migrants retain the right to present themselves at the border and request asylum, but the Trump administration’s “metering” policy has drastically reduced the number of applications heard each day from dozens to just a handful at some ports of entry.Asylum applications can take months to process. A Mexican official said Mr Ramirez and his family had visited the US consulate in the city of Matamoros on Sunday. It is unclear what occurred in the consulate but the family decided to try and cross the Rio Grande later the same day.Other Democrats commenting on the deaths included Rashida Tlaib, a Michigan congresswoman who entered the Capitol in January.“This monster and his heartless administration must be held accountable,” she said, referring to Mr Trump.Mexican newspapers have compared the image of the father and daughter to a 2015 photograph of Alan Kurdi, a three-year-old Syrian boy who drowned in the Mediterranean.The 2015 image helped to bring worldwide attention to the refugee crisis in Europe.It remains to be seen if the Rio Grande deaths will have a similar impact but awareness of the image has spread beyond Washington, with celebrities and activists among those sharing it online.Several urged social media users not to “look away” from the graphic photograph.“To those who say, ‘well, they shouldn’t have come here illegally’— why does this idea of an arbitrary line matter so much to you that you don’t care if people are dying when they cross said arbitrary line?!?!” Alyssa Milano, an actress, said.Bradley Whitford, an actor best known for his role in The West Wing, shared the image of Mr Ramirez and Valeria in a post on his Twitter account.He captioned it with a quote from the New Colossus, a sonnet about immigrants. The poem is mounted on the Statue of Liberty, which has historically served as a symbol of welcome for migrant communities arriving in the US.“Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,” Mr Whitford wrote.“The wretched refuse of your teeming shore, Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”Additional reporting by agencies

Iran says saving nuclear deal not its problem, EU warns no alternative

Iran says saving nuclear deal not its problem, EU warns no alternative U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew from the deal last year, inflaming tensions between Tehran and Washington that led to Iran shooting down a U.S. drone last week. Trump ordered retaliatory air strikes but called them off at the last minute. Under the deal to curb Tehran's nuclear program most U.N. and western sanctions on Iran were lifted, however the United States has imposed new sanctions that it says are designed to force Iran back to the negotiating table.

The biggest Porsche Taycan teasers in one place

The biggest Porsche Taycan teasers in one place For over a year, Porsche has been teasing the production version of the Mission E concept via spec reveals, shadowed videos, and obscure photographs of the Taycan in camouflage. Since the company debuted the Mission E concept EV in 2015, rumors have been pointing towards the development of a production version of the model and, sure enough, that model was announced two years later in June 2018. Since the Taycan was officially reported, Porsche has been releasing teasers every couple months about the car's development progress.


U.A.E. Splits With U.S. Over Blame for Oil Tanker Attack in May

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 Abdullah.\--With assistance from Zainab Fattah and Verity Ratcliffe.To contact the reporter on this story: Abbas Al Lawati in Dubai at aallawati6@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Shaji Mathew at shajimathew@bloomberg.net, Paul Abelsky, Mark WilliamsFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Democrats blame Trump's migration policies for drowning of man and daughter

Democrats blame Trump's migration policies for drowning of man and daughter Democratic presidential candidates have blamed Donald Trump's hard-line immigration policies for the deaths of migrants on the US border after a graphic picture of a father and his daughter lying dead in the Rio Grande shocked the world.  The photograph showed the drowned bodies of Salvadoran refugee Oscar Alberto Martinez Ramirez, 25, and his 23-month-old daughter, Valeria, locked in a final embrace as they attempted to cross the river from the Mexican city of Matamoros to Brownville, Texas.  The image has come to symbolise the large-scale humanitarian crisis on America's southern border and prompted an outpouring of sympathy from across the globe. Leading Democrats, ahead of the first primary debate of the 2020 race on Wednesday night, were quick to lay the blame for the tragedy directly at the US president's door. "Trump is responsible for these deaths," presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke bluntly stated in a tweet.  Rosa Ramirez cries at pictures of her son and granddaughter in her home in San Salvador Credit:  Antonio Valladares/ AP Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden, the two front runners in the Democratic race, also lambasted Mr Trump. Mr Sanders called the photograph “horrific", saying it demonstrated "the reckless disregard for basic humanity that have come from Trump's policies". Mr Biden called it "gut-wrenching" and "unconscionable". "History will judge how we respond to the Trump," he added. Mr Trump was defiant on Wednesday, saying the picture was proof that he "was right” about a crisis on the border - turning fire on Democrats who have opposed his immigration policies, including funding for his proposed border wall.  This image is gut-wrenching. The cruelty we're seeing at our border is unconscionable. History will judge how we respond to the Trump Administration’s treatment of immigrant families & children—we can’t be silent. This isn't who we are. This is not America.https://t.co/ZeMBmwUHxU— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) June 26, 2019 "I hate it," he said of the picture. "And I know it could stop immediately if the Democrats change the law. And then that father, who probably was this wonderful guy, with his daughter, things like that wouldn't happen. That's a very dangerous journey." "If we had the right laws, that the Democrats are not letting us have, those people, they wouldn't be coming up. They wouldn't be trying," Mr Trump said.  Mr Trump has made cracking down on illegal immigration and asylum claims a cornerstone of his presidency, most recently with a plan to send thousands of asylum seekers back to Mexico while their cases are considered. As part of the plan, the Mexican government has so far deployed more than 20,000 troops to its borders to stem the tide of migrants attempting to travel to America.  But human rights organisations have warned that the move risks causing migrants to attempt ever more dangerous routes to reach the US. Mr Trump's immigration policies have struggled against legal challenges and a number of high profile staff departures. Kirstjen Nielsen, the Homeland Security secretary, left the role in April amid frustration she was not doing enough to tackle the immigration numbers. Mexican Migrants Journey Just this week, the head of the Customs and Border Protection agency announced that he was stepping down next month, amid outrage over his agency's treatment of detained migrant children. The new acting commissioner, Mark Morgan, an immigration hard-liner and former Fox News contributor, is a strong proponent for the nationwide deportation raids that Mr Trump announced last week. As the photo of Mr Ramirez and his young daughter was broadcast around the world, Democrats in the House of Representatives approved an emergency bill for $4.5 billion in humanitarian aid to address the plight of migrants at the border. The bill was voted down by the Senate, which has drafted its own bill that would allocate $4.59 billion for the border crisis, but with fewer conditions on how the money can be spent, adding to the uncertainty over whether a deal can be reached. How could you look at the @AP's picture of a Salvadoran father and daughter and not understand that these are human beings, fleeing violence and persecution, willing to risk a perilous—sometimes fatal—journey in search of a better life? https://t.co/nyy7twkPUx— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) June 26, 2019 Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, who earlier produced a large copy of the photo of Mr Ramirez and his daughter in the chamber, said he and most Democrats would vote for the bipartisan bill.  "How could president Trump look at this picture and not understand these are human beings, fleeing violence and persecution, willing to risk a perilous - sometimes fatal - journey in search of a better life," he said.  According to local media reports, Tania Vanessa Avalos, Mr Ramirez’s wife, said the family had been kept for two months in the Puerta México camp, waiting for an appointment to discuss their asylum claim.  These families seeking asylum are often fleeing extreme violence. And what happens when they arrive? Trump says, 'Go back to where you came from.' That is inhumane. Children are dying. This is a stain on our moral conscience. https://t.co/NHly7QTiAq— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) June 26, 2019 On Sunday, Mr Ramirez and his wife decided to abandon the asylum process and attempt an illegal crossing into the United States by swimming the Rio Grande river.  Mr Ramirez took Valeria in his arms and swam across the river, setting her safely on the other side before returning to his wife.  But as he started swimming back, his daughter fell into the water. He turned back and grabbed his daughter, but the pair was then swallowed by a strong current as Valeria’s mother looked on in horror.  The following morning their bodies were discovered, 500 metres from the spot where the current took hold.  Mr Ramirez’s family initially faced immense financial costs of up to $7,500 to repatriate their relatives’ bodies, but the Salvadorian government has said it will pay for the funeral arrangements.  Authorities stand behind yellow warning tape along the Rio Grande bank where the bodies were found The case has already drawn comparisons with that of Alan Kurdi, the three-year-old Syrian refugee whose body was photographed off the coast of the Greek island of Kos.  “It is very unfortunate that this happens,” Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said at a news conference. He added that as increasing numbers of migrants are turned away by the US, “there are people who lose their lives in the desert or crossing the Rio Grande.” The Vatican said that Pope Francis had seen the image “with immense sadness”. “The Pope is profoundly saddened by their death, and is praying for them and for all migrants who have lost their lives while seeking to flee war and misery,” a spokesman said.

US-China trade spat, Iran tensions to dominate weighty G20

US-China trade spat, Iran tensions to dominate weighty G20 The trade battle between the US and China, and fears that spiralling tensions with Iran could erupt into conflict are poised to dominate a high-stakes G20 summit from Friday. With hotspots North Korea and Venezuela and a slowing world economy also high on the agenda, the two-day gathering of leaders from the world's group of 20 leading nations in Osaka, Japan, could be one of the most pivotal in years, analysts say. Trump last week sparked hopes for a detente in the long-running trade war when he said he would hold "extended" talks with Xi after a "very good telephone conversation".


Robert Mueller to testify publicly to Congress over Russian probe

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." Profile | Robert Mueller In his 448-page report issued in April, Mr Mueller concluded there was not enough evidence to establish a conspiracy between Mr Trump's presidential campaign and Russia, which was the original question that started the investigation. But he also said he could not exonerate Mr Trump on obstruction of justice. The report examined several episodes in which Trump attempted to influence the investigation. The testimony from the taciturn ex-FBI director is likely to be the most highly anticipated congressional hearing in years, particularly given Mr Mueller's resolute silence throughout the two-year investigation. He never responded to any of the public attacks from Mr Trump, nor did he ever personally join his prosecutors in court or make announcements of criminal charges from the team. His sole public statement came from the Justice Department podium last month, when he sought to explain his decision to not indict Mr Trump or to accuse him of criminal conduct. He also put lawmakers on notice that he did not ever intend to say more than what he put in the report. "We chose those words carefully and the work speaks for itself," he said at the news conference. "I would not provide information beyond what is already public in any appearance before Congress." Those remarks did little to settle the demands for his testimony, with Democrats and Republicans likely to confront him on his team's conclusions, his reaction to a drumbeat of incessant criticism from the president and his personal opinion about whether Mr Trump would have been charged were he not the commander-in-chief.

Man slashes own throat in court during trial for murder of Tinder date

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


Taj Ma Garaj Collection Being Sold Without Reserve

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.

Iran vows to ditch more nuclear curbs in war of words with US

Iran vows to ditch more nuclear curbs in war of words with US Iran said Tuesday it will further free itself from the 2015 nuclear deal in defiance of new American sanctions as US President Donald Trump warned the Islamic republic of "overwhelming" retaliation for any attacks. Tensions between Iran and the US have spiralled since last year when Trump withdrew the United States from the deal under which Tehran was to curb its nuclear programme in exchange for relief from economic sanctions. The two arch-rivals have been locked in an escalating war of words since Iran shot down a US surveillance drone in what it said was its own airspace, a claim the US vehemently denies.

Here’s what Samsung’s Galaxy Fold 2 could look like

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 will fold inward.The other thing this new report stresses is that foldables are still very much a part of Samsung's long-term product roadmap. The company will even reportedly house these devices within a new product family and use them as a possible new vehicle for energizing the somewhat stagnant smartphone market, thanks to customers that have gotten too-used to boring rectangular slabs that, at a high level, look and operate pretty similarly these days.All in all, certainly interesting, but look. Samsung is nothing if not an incredibly ambitious consumer electronics giant, and it's good to see an appetite for experimentation. We still need to see a lot more evidence, however, before we'll be convinced that mainstream users will regard foldable smartphones as The Next Big Thing. Best of luck, though!

US border chief quits amid outcry over child detainees: report The chief US customs and border enforcement official is stepping down amid an uproar over the treatment of migrant children detained along the border with Mexico, US media reported Tuesday. John Sanders will resign as acting commissioner of the Customs and Border Protection agency (CBP) in the coming weeks, The New York Times cited a federal official as saying. Sanders has led the agency since April, when US President Donald Trump reshuffled his immigration offices and tapped CBP chief Kevin McAleenan to replace Kirstjen Nielsen as secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.

Here’s Your Chance To Own A Very Rare Factory 1969 Z28 Camaro You’ll be hard pressed to find a first-generation Camaro is this close to original condition! Representing the last year run of the first-generation of the F-Body platform, this 1969 Chevy Camaro Z28 is a numbers matching car with a lot of important things to note about it. Outside of being from one of the most desirable eras of the nameplate, it’s also sporting a rare color and low mileage. The best thing about this car is that it’s ready for a new home from Sunnyside Classics. This Camaro has a mere 17,800 miles on the clock since new, and has plenty of life left in it as a street machine, or a show car. Tagged with the original X33, D80  Z28 callouts, this original Z28 has never been messed with. Of the approximate 165,000 Camaros made in 1969, only 20,302 were produced as Z28s, and who knows how many are even left on the road, and even less than that would be in this mileage and condition. More to Read...First Battle Of The Builders Champ 1969 CamaroNow's Your Chance To Own A 2019 Petty’s Garage Warrior MustangAdding to the rarity of this being a 1968 Camaro Z28 trim, is the fact that the car is also a 10 Black Paint coded car with hounds tooth interior - making this a very rare gem. According to the ad, and sourced by Camaro Research Group, only about 2-percent of the Z28s that left the factory in 1969 were black, so we’re done to around 400 ever made like this. Otherwise, the car is in excellent condition as it sits, with only one repaint done, and completely solid panels. The engine is correct to the factory stamped code, as are the transmission and rearend. It also has block 3970010, head 3927186, 12 Bolt with 4:10 gears, power steering, power brakes, and chambered exhaust. This car will not last long on the market, so check it out now.

Iran drone downing highlights limitations of US unmanned aircraft

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.

Leaked hi-res images give us our best look yet at Apple’s iPhone 11

Leaked hi-res images give us our best look yet at Apple’s iPhone 11 There will be several high-profile flagship smartphone launches between now and early September, but Apple's upcoming new iPhone 11 is already stealing the spotlight. We've got the Galaxy Fold, the Galaxy Note 10, and several big launches coming up in China. In fact, the world's first smartphone with a hidden under-display selfie camera could be announced as soon as tomorrow. Still, all eyes are already on Apple's unreleased iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Max, and iPhone 11R (or whatever Apple ends up calling them), the designs of which have been revealed in a series of leaks from numerous reliable sources.In much the same way that the iPhone 7 was really the "iPhone 6ss" since it used the exact same design but spiced things up with exciting new features, the iPhone 11 is shaping up to be an "iPhone Xss." It'll sport the same overall design with a few minor tweaks and a massive new camera bump on the back. That new camera bump will be a bit of an eyesore at first, but it's also the key to several of the best new features expected to arrive on the iPhone 11, such as an enhanced night mode for the camera that should yield low-light photos that rival Google's Pixel phones.We have indeed seen the iPhone 11 leak plenty of times already, but this latest leak comes from a source with a terrific track record and it might give us our best look yet at Apple's unreleased iPhone 11.Online retailer Mobile Fun is often the recipient of renders from one third-party accessory maker in particular that depict unreleased smartphones. That accessory maker is Olixar, and it's back with a new set of protective cases. This time around, they're for Apple's upcoming new iPhone 11 Max, the phablet-sized iPhone 11 model Apple will release later this summer.There aren't any surprises in these new renders per se, but Mobile Fun sent us hi-resolution versions of the images and they give us a great up-close look at Apple's iPhone 11 Max design. Here they are in all their glory:The renders show Apple's gold iPhone 11 Max from every conceivable angle, and we can see all of the subtle design changes like the new round mute switch -- as well as the not-so-subtle one: the massive new camera array on the back. While we expect the finished product to look just like this, aside from one big mistake that Olixar made when creating the renders. The area around the lenses in the square camera array on Apple's next-generation iPhones is expected to be color-matched to the rest of the back of the phone, according to several sources including top Apple insider Ming-Chi Kuo. In these renders, however, Olixar colored that area black like it is on Apple's past iPhone models. Most people agree that it looks better this way, but the real gold iPhone 11 Max that Apple releases in a few months will have the same gold coloring between the rear camera lenses and flash.Apple's new iPhone 11 series is expected to be announced sometime in early September with a release date to follow in mid to late September.


Would U.S. Navy Aircraft Carriers Lose a War to Iran?

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. Its reliance on violent sectarianism helps fuel Sunni extremist groups like ISIS. This also places Tehran’s proxies on the borders of key U.S. allies. Beginning next year, Tehran can start upgrading its conventional and missile arsenals as U.N. arms embargoes expire. It is also threatening to resume progress toward nuclear weapons.The Trump Administration is pursuing robust sanctions, but these alone are likely insufficient to prevent Tehran’s aggression and reassure our regional allies.Credible forward deployed military capability – like a carrier strike group – provides real options for American policymakers. Last month’s intelligence suggesting Iran was ready to move against U.S. interests in the Middle East demonstrates how the absence of such forces could embolden Iran. Responding to this intelligence, the prompt movement of the Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group into the region has dramatically increased the U.S. force posture. Effective deterrence of Iran will require persistent, visible, and credible military capability.A combination of far-reaching and short-term policy changes can address this challenge.

If successful, he would be the first openly gay president of the United States.Buttigieg did not respond to these four questions sent to him by The Daily Beast: When and how did you first hear about the Stonewall Riots and what did you make of them? What is their significance for you? How far have LGBT people come since 1969? What would you like to see, LGBT-wise, in the next 50 years?Bill T. Jones: We Must Work Harder to Connect Stonewall to the World’s Other Liberation StrugglesInstead, Buttigieg sent this statement:“In the 50 years since Stonewall, it’s been extraordinary to see the awakening of the LGBTQ+ community. As the first out elected official running for president, it’s hard to believe how quickly these changes have come to our society, but also hard to live with just how much work remains ahead of us. “And in those 50 years we’ve seen a remarkable transformation: the awakening of an identity that learned how to exert political force and issue a moral call for our nation to do better when it comes to equality. I’m proud to be a part of that, standing on the shoulders of giants in a tradition that goes back to Stonewall and before, and I’m eager for the gains to be made on the road ahead.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

GOP Rep: Trump Hatred Could Be Driving Reports of Awful Conditions at Detention Centers

GOP Rep: Trump Hatred Could Be Driving Reports of Awful Conditions at Detention Centers MSNBCAmid reports of migrant children suffering in inhumane and squalid conditions at Texas border detention centers, Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) suggested on Monday night the reports could be untrue because of the hatred many feel for the president.Appearing on MSNBC’s All In with Chris Hayes, the Texas lawmaker was asked by host Chris Hayes whether he agreed that “these kinds of conditions are appalling and unacceptable,” something Burgess was unwilling to fully concede.Noting that “it’s always been tough” at a number of facilities at the border, Burgess went on to describe the Custom and Border Patrol agents as heroes, insisting that they don’t get enough credit for the humane work they do. Hayes, meanwhile, pressed the congressman to address the conditions at the facilities, specifically at the center in Clint, Texas, where hundreds of young migrants were reportedly detained in a “chaotic scene of sickness and filth.” Following the reports of overcrowding and inadequate food and sanitation, all but 30 children were removed from the center.Burgess, however, asserted that he hadn’t seen anything like that at the centers he’d visited, causing Hayes to ask if Burgess thought reporters and lawyers were “making it up.” Once again, the Republican lawmaker insisted that wasn’t what he’d seen, noting that he hadn’t been to the Clint facility.“You think this is fictional?!” Hayes exclaimed.“I don’t know if it’s hyperbole,” Burgess replied. “I know that the hatred for this president is so intense, people are liable to say anything. I got to go look for myself and see for myself.”Moments later, Hayes confronted Burgess over reports that children in the facilities had “lice crawling through their heads,” causing the congressman to claim that the kids “arrive with the lice.”“You don’t know that,” the MSNBC host exploded. “You do not know that!”“I do,” Burgess stated.Hayes pushed back and pointed to reports that children in the Clint facility had contracted the flu there, leading Burgess to bring up another facility altogether.“That is not true. When I was down in McAllen—” Burgess said, prompting Hayes to fire back that they were talking about Clint and the lawmaker had admitted he hadn’t been there.“I just talked to the lawyer who was just in Clint, Texas,” the All In host exclaimed. “You just told me you’re not in Clint, Texas. You don’t know what they got.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip? Send it to The Daily Beast hereGet our top stories in your inbox every day.

APNewsBreak: Oregon governor says GOP must return to state Oregon Gov. Kate Brown said Monday she won't negotiate with Republicans who walked out to thwart landmark climate legislation, at least not until they return to the Capitol. All eleven Republican senators didn't show up to work for a fifth day Monday, denying Democrats the number of lawmakers needed to vote on a potential statewide cap and trade plan. Brown, a Democrat, deployed the Oregon State Police last week to seek out Republicans, but many fled the state and remain outside the police's jurisdiction.
