CNN claimed peaceful activists demonstrated at the G20 summit and downplayed the violent riots reported by every other news agency.
“An eclectic and international mix of demonstrators peacefully tramped through the streets of Hamburg on Saturday, a show of anti-capitalist muscle in earshot of the world’s top leaders who were finishing up at the G20 summit,” the fake news outlet reported. “Up to 50,000 people turned out, police in the northern German city estimated.”

A team of computer scientists and electrical engineers at the University of Washington have designed and unveiled the world’s first battery-free mobile phone that makes use of ambient radio waves or light to function. The phone was touted to “harvest” a few microwatts of power from the said sources to send and receive calls. The team even reported placing Skype calls using the battery-free phone, which demonstrated that it can be used to receive and transmit speech and communicate with a base station. The phone was made of commercial, off-the-shelf components.

My friend Michael is one of the most successful entrepreneurs I know.
Several years ago Michael started an automated domain business that used software to buy domains, find the most likely buyer, and then sell them.
For example, Michael’s custom software would buy, say, XYZ.com.
Then it would scan online domain records to determine the most likely buyer of that domain… perhaps the owner of XYZ.net.
His software would then send that person an email offering them XYZ.com at a pre-determined price.

President Trump and his advisors began the great game with China at the G20 in Hamburg. Economic competition and regional access in the South China Sea are some of the reasons the Trump administration would like to drive a wedge between China and Russia to the greatest extent possible.
As Jim Rickards has said, in a three player game, you don’t want to be the odd-man out. This means that the U.S. would like to keep Russia neutral — or better, make Russia an ally — before any conflict reaches a head between the U.S. and China.
To do this, the Trump administration needs to think carefully about Russia’s interests. What, if anything, could the U.S. do to influence Russia in any potential situation that develops between the U.S. and China?

An investment that can be gutted by financial rules changing overnight is not safe.
What’s the safest investment as the global economy enters increasingly risky, troubled times? I’ve reviewed hundreds of academic papers, investment reports and newsletters and researched long-term strategies and backtests and reached one conclusion.
I won’t keep you in suspense: it’s bat guano (or seabird guano if you can’t get the bat stuff). Yes, bat doo-doo is the safest single investment on the planet.
OK, so I didn’t do a lot of fancy research because that would have been a waste of time. If the era we’re entering is fundamentally unlike the previous eras, then studying past investment results and strategies will generate dangerously misleading conclusions.
Here’s the thinking that leads to bat guano being the number one Safest Investment.

Since the mid-1990s, the Greenland ice sheet has been losing ice mass at a fast rate, resulting in raising sea levels worldwide. Lately, Greenland’s loss of ice has been the center of climate-related news. Though climate change alarmists blame global warming and CO2 emissions as the driving factors behind the accelerated rate of ice melt in Greenland, a new study, published in the online journal Science Advances, tells a different tale.
A team of researchers, led by the University of Bristol, has discovered that a decrease in summer clouds is causing an abrupt reduction in surface ice mass, not rising temperatures or catastrophic climate change events.
