The more we learn about Uber and its founder, Travis Kalanick, the less we like them. The NY Times reports on the ride company's sleazy tactics. For months, Mr. Kalanick had pulled a fast one on Apple by directing his employees to help camouflage the ride-hailing app from Apple’s engineers. The reason? So Apple would not find out that Uber had been secretly identifying and tagging iPhones even after its app had been deleted and the devices erased — a fraud detection maneuver that violated Apple’s privacy guidelines. But Apple was on to the deception, and when Mr. Kalanick arrived at the midafternoon meeting sporting his favorite pair of bright red sneakers and hot-pink socks, Mr. Cook was prepared. “So, I’ve heard you’ve been breaking some of our rules,” Mr. Cook said in his calm, Southern tone. Stop the trickery, Mr. Cook then demanded, or Uber’s app would be kicked out of Apple’s App Store.

WASHINGTONTop Democratic leaders said Sunday that their party welcomes people who are pro-life, despite the party being strongly defined by its support for abortion rights. Of course, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said on NBCs Meet the Press. I have served many years in Congress with members who have not shared my very positive, my family would say aggressive, position on promoting a womans right to choose, she said. But what you asked... was about what unifies Democrats. Our values unify us. We are unified with our commitment to Americas working families about job creation, about budget policies that invest in the future, good-paying jobs. Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said its fine if an elected Democratic official personally opposes abortion, but from a policy standpoint, he or she must support a womans right to choose.

" "I don't think anybody expects us to roll bill language on Wednesday," he said. While he has slashed government regulations and used his executive powers more frequently than any of his recent predecessors, Trump so far has had no major legislative achievements to speak of. His attempt to repeal and replace his predecessor Obama's health care reforms was rejected in the Republican-controlled Congress, and his executive order imposing a travel ban targeting citizens of several mainly Muslim countries as well as refugees has been blocked by the courts. A new Washington Post/ABC News poll showed his approval ratings to be at a record low for a modern US president at a point in office when most are enjoying a honeymoon. It found that 42 percent of Americans approved of his performance, and 53 percent disapproved. - Spending compromise? - Democrats have shown little interest in compromise, particularly on the border wall project.

“We formally sent a letter to the United Nations, we asked them in that letter to send a delegation in order to investigate what happened in Khan Shaykhun,” Assad said. “Of course till this moment they didn't send (the experts), because the West and the US blocked any delegation from coming,” he added. Some in Western media have noted the wag the dog aspect that has apparently ensnared the White House over the Idlib chemical attack claims. Scott Ritter for Huffington Post acknowledged what most Western outlets have largely failed to mention or question: “Sarin, however, is an odorless, colorless material, dispersed as either a liquid or vapor; eyewitnesses speak of a “pungent odor” and “blue-yellowclouds, more indicative of chlorine gas. And while American media outlets, such as CNN, have spoken of munitionsfilled to the brim” with Sarin nerve agent being used at Khan Sheikhoun, there is simply no evidence cited by any source that can sustain such an account.
