A trove of more than 7,500 emails and other documents were released on Wednesday revealing that President Donald Trump's choice to lead the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) coordinated closely with his state's oil and gas industry while also leading an office responsible for regulating them. The emails , released by the Oklahoma attorney general's office after losing a two-year legal battle with the Center for Media and Democracy, show that Scott Pruitt worked with energy executives to push back against EPA regulations that were viewed as harmful to their industry. The records release came mere days after the former Oklahoma attorney general was narrowly confirmed by the Senate and began his new job at the EPA. Read more...

The newest build (58.0.3020.0) of Chrome Canary, Google's experimental browser, includes support for the Touch Bar built into the 2016 MacBook Pro , indicating Touch Bar support will soon be added to the Chrome browser. On the Touch Bar, the current Chrome Canary build offers a search/URL bar, forward and back buttons, a refresh/stop option, a button for opening a new tab, and a button for adding a new bookmark. It's much a simpler implementation than Touch Bar support in Safari, which includes preview tabs for quickly switching between windows. There are also no controls available for video or music playback in the browser. Features are tested in Canary before being added release builds of the Google Chrome browser, so Touch Bar support is expected in Chrome 58, set to be released during the week of April 25th. Those who want to give Touch Bar support a try ahead of the release of Chrome 58 can download Chrome Canary from Google . Tags: Google , Chrome Discuss this article in our forums

Rank-and-file Republicans are more concerned about leaks to the media of conversations between Trump advisers and the Russian government than they are about the conversations themselves, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released Wednesday. The poll, conducted February 16-20, shows how President Donald Trump has shifted opinions within the party of Ronald Reagan, where national security has been a top issue since the Cold War, said Larry Sabato, director of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia. "Republicans have now put a higher priority on their partisan identification and support for their current leader than principles they have had for many decades," Sabato said. "We live in such a polarized era." Trump asked his national security adviser, Michael Flynn, to resign this month after news organizations reported he had discussed U.

If you take any serious amount of photos in RAW format or shoot lots of video footage at, say, 4K resolution, then you need a speedy SD card. Being a kingpin of the memory business for a long time, Sony knows this better than most, and therefore has unveiled the worlds fastest SD card: the SF-G Series . (Read: that is, until a rival comes along and one-ups Sony in a matter of months. It never ends, really.) Sonys latest SD cards, aimed at media professionals (natch), boast write speeds of 299 MB/s thats megabytes per second, not megabits and read speeds of 300 MB/s. (The next fastest SD card to date belongs to SanDisk with its 260 MB/s-writing Extreme Pro series.) The firm chalks up this arguably massive increase to unique firmware, and thats it. While Sony is keeping mum on exactly how it crafted the speediest SD card yet, it has released a bunch more qualifying information you should know before picking up one of these bad boys.

This isn't even close to being over… In the latest news from Kesha and Dr. Luke 's FX miniseries-worthy legal battle, the music producer's team filed documents in response to the emails released by Kesha's team last week . These documents include email chains between the producer (aka Lukasz Gottwald ), Kesha's managers, and her assistant. And unlike the "out of context" emails the Tik Tok singer's team leaked last week, the fuller picture doesn't always paint the Kemosabe Records founder as the bad guy. Related: Dr. Luke Says Kesha Still Owes Him $1.3 Million! The emails, which range in date from 2010 to 2016, show discussions about Kesha's diet and appearance between her manager Monica Cornia and her assistant Tessa Schonder -- in which the two note they should keep "junk food" away from the singer. This shifts some of the blame off Luke, who in last week's documents was painted as the only one who spoke about her weight.

Crafting the perfect Instagram photo is a delicate art. While there's no better way to secure more likes than showing off a shot of the sun setting over the Indian Ocean in the Maldives, if you post one too many of these envy-inducing beauties, your followers may be more irritated than impressed . Fortunately, Instagram has come up with the perfect compromise, an easy way for you to share your best shots without overloading your follower's feeds. Starting today, instead of posting just one picture, you'll be able to create a photo album that can hold up to 10 photos or videos within a single post, giving your friends the option to choose if they'd like to swipe through all of them. Here's how to do it: When uploading a photo, look for a new icon that lets you select multiple photos and videos. After you've chosen the best of the bunch, you can edit them as normal, apply filters, change the order or remove photos from your selection.

" Letourneau was arrested and served more than seven years in jail for statutory rape. She was released in 2004 and married Fualaau the following year. The couple now has two daughters in their late teens, according to the Hill . Maher did say that the relationship was unconventional. "I admit it's unorthodox," Maher added, "She's 35, the boy is 14. He was younger when they started. But she is pregnant again. That was the story this week. This is the second child by this boy. They are keeping the mother in jail because she won't conform to what society feels should be the perfect American family." Lisa Montgomery Kennedy, a guest on the show, sarcastically replied, "Yeah, that's perfect." Republican activist Celeste Greig added, "Sickening. Absolutely sickening. The woman is over 20 years older, and she raped this kid." "Raped?" Maher responded.

If you scale these numbers down using the same estimates to predict how many intelligent civilizations exist in the Milky Way, you’d get 1 billion Earth-like planets and 100,000 intelligent civilizations in our galaxy alone. Given the significant amount of evidence for UFOs and the channellings I've seen of extraterrestrials, I am fully confident that not only do these beings exist, but they have in fact visited us as well. To assume otherwise would simply be ignorant. The governments know this, Churchill knew this, and you should too! Why Churchill Ordered a UFO Cover-Up Files released in 2010 by the U.K. Ministry of Defense suggest that former Prime Minister Winston Churchill ordered a UFO cover-up during World War II. Amongst the 5,000 pages of correspondence between the public and British authorities regarding UFO sightings exists a letter that discusses a meeting between Churchill and U.
