To Curb Illegal Immigration, DHS Separating Families At The Border

The Department of Homeland Security has undertaken its most extreme measure yet to discourage asylum seekers from coming to the U.S. — family separation.

Seeking To Make Schools Safer, Florida Legislators Take Up Gun Measures

House and Senate Republican lawmakers in Florida unveiled a package of sweeping gun control proposals on Monday, which they hope to pass before a legislative recess in two weeks. The measures are aimed at making schools safer for children but present a challenge to the National Rifle Association's grip on the state's Republican leaders, including the self-professed gun-toting governor, who presented his own plan Friday . If passed, it will be the first time in more than a decade that...

New Fed Chief Sees Interest Rates Continuing To Rise As Economy Strengthens

Updated at 5:38 p.m. ET The Federal Reserve remains on track to continue increasing interest rates gradually to keep the economy functioning smoothly, Jerome Powell told Congress on Tuesday in his first testimony as Fed chairman.

Court Seems Unconvinced Of Microsoft's Argument To Shield Email Data Stored Overseas

Updated at 5:11 p.m. ET The Supreme Court heard arguments Tuesday about whether emails stored overseas are subject to a U.S. warrant. It all revolved around a 1986 law, five years before the "World Wide Web" even existed. It was the cloud and robots meet Marty McFly. And the justices didn't seem to be buying arguments from Microsoft, an American tech company headquartered in Redmond, Wash., which is trying to protect the data. The question facing the justices didn't exist a few decades ago —...

Pension Funds Under Pressure To Sell Off Investments In Gun-Makers

Since the mass killing at a Parkland, Fla., high school earlier this month, many teachers have called on their state pension funds to sell their stakes in gun-makers. Private investment firms including BlackRock and Blackstone are reviewing their firearms investments in response to clients' demands. But even those sympathetic to their position say divesting from those companies doesn't lead to industry change. Many state pension funds that invest on behalf of public employees and teachers own...

Trump Powers Small Dollar Donor Surge For Democratic Fundraising Site

There's nothing like adversity to get political donors reaching for their credit cards, which made 2017 – Donald Trump's first year as president – the best year yet for the Democratic nonprofit ActBlue. A conduit more than a solicitor of cash, ActBlue has been around since 2004. It's played a role in some of the Democrats' big fundraising successes, some fueled by a candidate's personality or message, and now increasingly stoked by anger or fear. In a midterm election year where Democrats are...

An Anarchist Explains How Hackers Could Cause Global Chaos

He is now out and living in a halfway house in Dallas. He had spent years in a prison cell thinking about what he might do when he got...

How Movie Darling Mary Pickford Became The Most Powerful Woman In Hollywood

One hundred years ago, the most powerful woman in Hollywood was a producer, a studio head and a major force onscreen. Mary Pickford was a founder of the Motion Picture Academy and much admired for her philanthropy. But before all that, she was a darling of the silent screen. In her 20s, Pickford became famous playing 14-year-olds. Her characters were always sweet, virginal, waifish girls. Scott Eyman, author of Mary Pickford: From Here to Hollywood , describes the actress's typical character...

Bang Data: Telling the Stories of Latinx Life in Trump's America

If there ever was a perfect soundtrack for a California road-trip, Bang Data's latest album, LOCO, would totally fit the bill. Bay area singer-rapper-songwriter Deuce Eclipse and multi-instrumentalist Juan Manuel Caipo have been making music together since 2008. Their music is deeply atmospheric, so it's not surprising that it can often be heard in commercials and TV shows (they've been featured on Breaking Bad , Lucha Underground , and Criminal Minds Beyond Borders, to mention just a few)....

A Hip Charleston Restaurant Where Women Are The Boss

In the heart of Charleston, S.C., on a melting pot street of shops, eateries and residents from all walks of life, stands Cannon Green , a soaring, skylight-lit Mediterranean restaurant and wedding venue. The staff of 70 runs two kitchens, which would not be unusual, except for the fact that it is 80 percent female. The front of the house is half women. The administrative, sales and events team is all female. And there are 12 women and two men in management positions. The kitchens are largely...

As Milk Prices Decline, Worries About Dairy Farmer Suicides Rise

As the nation's dairy farmers struggle through their fourth year of depressed milk prices, concerns are rising that many are becoming depressed themselves. The outlook for the next year is so bleak, it's heightening worries — especially in the Northeast — about farmer suicides. Agri-Mark Inc., a dairy cooperative with about 1,000 members, saw three farmers take their own lives in the past three years. The most recent was last month. It's a very small sample, but very sharp and disturbing...
