DeVos grilled by Democrats on public school cuts, private school discrimination

DeVos grilled by Democrats on public school cuts, private school discriminationDemocratic legislators pressed Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos in her first public testimony since a contentious confirmation process. DeVos was answering questions on the White House budget proposal in front of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services and Education. The budget proposal has been criticized by some for making deep cuts to public education to fund school choice voucher programs such as those that DeVos promoted in her home state of Michigan.

S. Korea tourist numbers hammered by China boycott

S. Korea tourist numbers hammered by China boycottChinese tourist numbers to South Korea plunged by two-thirds in April after Beijing banned tour groups over Seoul's deployment of a US missile defence system, official statistics showed. Beijing imposed a boycott from March 15 on Chinese tour groups visiting the South in a spat over the US Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system. Washington and Seoul say it is purely to defend against threats from nuclear-armed North Korea, but Beijing fears it could undermine its own nuclear deterrent and has reacted with fury, imposing a series of measures seen as economic retaliation.

Retirement Savings Is a Bigger Crisis Than Health Care

Retirement Savings Is a Bigger Crisis Than Health CareEveryone talks about how health care is the biggest crisis facing retirees, but unfortunately that crisis takes a distant second to another, far more serious issue. A 2015 National Institute on Retirement Security study found that the median working-age household has just $14,500 in retirement savings -- woefully short of the hundreds of thousands in savings truly needed to retire in the first place. One of the authors of the 2015 NIRS study, Ilana Boivie, agrees that the $14,500 figure is startlingly low.

Newfound ‘alien megastructure’ star leaves scientists baffled

Newfound ‘alien megastructure’ star leaves scientists baffled

You're forgiven if the name KIC 8462852 doesn't ring a bell. It's a far-off object, thought to be a star, which was only just discovered in late 2015, but it's already managed to totally confuse researchers in its extremely brief stint on the scientific stage. The star has continually exhibited extremely odd behavior, and has been repeatedly observed experiencing huge dips in brightness that don't seem to have any readily available explanation. Now, the star has been spotted performing the same dimming trick as it has in the past, and scientists are throwing out some extremely wild theories. 

KIC 8462852, otherwise known as "Tabby's Star" or "Boyajian's Star" depending on where you look, was caught in the act this past weekend, dimming in brightness by about three percent, which is a large enough change to be easily detected. Normally, the dimming of a star at regular intervals would indicate the presence of a planet in orbit, but there doesn't seem to be any pattern to the of dimming exhibited by KIC 8462852.

Researchers have thrown forth many possible explanations, including other, non-planetary celestial bodies passing in front of the star which are obscuring our line of sight, such as comets, and even the possibility that whatever is floating around the star isn't a naturally-occurring object at all, but instead a massive alien structure. As the research and observations continue, scientists around the globe are hoping that spectral readings will give them a clue as to what, if anything, passed in front of the star. Whatever the object happens to be, it's an exciting time for sky-gazers.

Donald Trump has touched The Orb. Here's what that means

Donald Trump has touched The Orb. Here's what that meansPresident Donald Trump's trip to Saudi Arabia over the weekend went largely as planned. He appeared jovial on his first trip abroad, he announced billions in Saudi investment in the U.S., and his speech on terrorism was well received.  Last, but not least, he touched The Orb. SEE ALSO: Well-done steak and other items on Donald Trump's tour rider And here’s Trump at the opening of the “Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology” in Riyadh pic.twitter.com/gshRT2nFLU — BuzzFeed News (@BuzzFeedNews) May 21, 2017 Donald Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to touch The Orb.  The Orb, of course, has existed long before the United States and even the concept of democracy, government, or even society. Its origins remain unknown and no sitting U.S. president has ever dared touch it, out of both fear and respect for its Power. So what does it mean that Donald Trump touched it? Well, a few things. By touching The Orb, Donald Trump has seen all of history in one agonizing moment. All of The Orb's wealth of knowledge, which spans from literally everything from the very first dawn to the Earth's dark and horrid last days, has been burned into Donald Trump's mind in one horrifying instant. He has seen everything that has happened or will happen. This has no doubt changed him as a person. However, it is presently unclear if he even came out of this event with his sanity still in tact. For the next few months or years, Donald Trump will be unable to shake the image of seeing his own death.  It will replay in his mind on a constant loop. He will likely do everything he can to try to prevent this outcome, but as we all know, the future is already written and his feeble attempts will prove fruitless. He will either be able to accept this fact, or it will consume him entirely. Donald Trump has met and fought The Dark One.  At the end of his awful vision Donald Trump will have come face-to-face with Satan, Dark Lord of Hades, who explained to him the true and harrowing meaning of life, information no mortal should bear. Hearing these disgusting words from Satan's dreadful voice will have no doubt provoked Donald Trump to impulsively attack him. They battled in Hell's arena where Mr. Trump inevitably lost. As punishment he was cast into the fires below and tormented by Servants of Hell: creatures so horrific the human mind is incapable of imagining them.  As a reward for completing The Orb's Trial, Donald Trump has been temporarily granted God's powers.  If The Orb is pleased with Donald's trial he will have been rewarded with the powers of God. Fortunately, Donald lacks the complex understanding required to wield these powers to their full extent, if at all. The knowledge of having the divine power of God and the inability to use them to their full potential will undoubtedly frustrate him into derangement. The powers will most likely wear off harmlessly before he has the chance to accidentally undo the creation of Earth. Before long, his lust for The Orb will become insatiable, and he will need to be confined in a locked room until his desire wanes. The Orb's enigmatic essence is a powerful magnet, and Donald Trump's desire to once again touch The Orb will burn hotter than one thousand suns in a phenomenon known as "Orb Madness." It will drive him into hysterics and he will become inconsolable. For his own safety, he will be confined to a padded cell until it has been determined The Orb no longer dominates his thoughts. This could take days, months, or even years.  Bottom line? It's too soon to determine how this will play out, or even if The Orb was pleased with Donald's touch. Only time will tell and all we can do is speculate and pray to The Orb that Donald was a worthy enough subject to lay a mortal hand upon its enchanted surface.  WATCH: Race on a budget by revamping your lawnmower

If confirmed, this would represent a major blow against Islamic State (IS) ahead of an attack which the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) - an alliance of Kurdish and Arab fighters - are expected to launch against the jihadists in their stronghold of Raqqa city. A Syrian military source told Reuters the IS commander, Abu Musab al-Masri, had been the group's "minister of war" for Syria.

Pointedly delivering his first foreign speech in Riyadh on Sunday, Trump praised the six-state Gulf Cooperation Council, specifically Saudi Arabia, for efforts to cut off funding to extremists while lambasting Iran as the "spearhead of terrorism". While the unpredictable Trump completed the visit to the region without committing a major gaffe, his approach "swept away the entire Obama legacy with the wave of a hand," said Thierry Coville, an Iran expert at the French Institute for International and Strategic Affairs.

Chief State Prosecutor Luisa Ortega stunned the crisis-hit country in March when she lambasted the Supreme Court for annulling the powers of the opposition-led National Assembly. Since then, she has been a wild card within the publicly homogenous Venezuelan government, whose foes accuse it of seeking to dodge elections by creating a parallel assembly with powers to rewrite the constitution.

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 buy one, get one free deal is better than T-Mobile’s

Although it will have some tough competition from Apple and OnePlus later this year, Samsung's Galaxy S8 is currently the best phone of 2017. Since the phone launched last month, several deals have sprung up from retailers and mobile carriers, but Samsung just blew them all away with a deal of its own.

T-Mobile customers who are in the market for two new phones can take advantage of Samsung's new buy one, get one free deal right now. Unlike T-Mobile's deal, there's virtually no fine print to this offer -- just buy a Galaxy S8, activate it on an existing T-Mobile line and receive up to a $750 rebate to cover the cost of the second phone within 7-10 days after the activation of the first.

In addition to the free phone, anyone who takes advantage of the offer will also receive a free Galaxy S8 Entertainment Kit, which includes a Clear View Standing Cover, a 64GB EVO+ memory card and 6 months of Netflix. That's over $170 worth of products and services completely free of charge.

The deal will only be available for a "limited time," so if you're looking to pick up a couple of Galaxy S8 smartphones and only want to pay for one of them, head to Samsung.com as soon as possible.

Apple is going all-in on OLED displays

Apple is going all-in on OLED displays

One of the big changes on the iPhone 8 that every rumor agrees on is the display. Apple will finally be making the jump from LCD to sharper and more battery-efficient OLED panels for its new flagship iPhone later this year, which makes total sense.

But rumors also suggest that the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, expected to be incremental upgrades unveiled in September, will stick with LCD. Since the iPhone 8 will likely cost upwards of $1,000, that means most iPhone users will still be stuck on LCD screens in 2017.

A new report suggests that will all change by the time the iPhone 9 comes out. The Korea Herald's investment site is reporting that Apple has already signed a deal with Samsung to deliver 180 million OLED panels in 2018. The screens have been ordered in two sizes, which hints heavily that Apple will return to its usual release cycle in 2018: two new iPhones with very similar features, but one with a regular screen and one bigger Plus version.

The timing of the report makes sense, as it's about 18 months before Apple could be expected to launch the next-next iPhone. Signing a deal this far in advance gives Samsung time to overhaul its factories and buy new tooling, necessary to start work on an assembly line, design production prototypes, and finally start making screens months before launch.

However, other details like the type of glass used in the display (and possibly an under-screen fingerprint sensor) wouldn't have to be worked out for some time, so this doesn't mean that the design of the iPhone 9 is remotely finalized yet.

The choice of manufacturing partner also makes sense. Samsung is rumored to be the OLED supplier for the iPhone 8, with a contract for 70 million displays reportedly signed months ago. Even though Samsung and Apple's consumer electronics arms are forever locked in fierce competition, Apple has leaned heavily on Samsung's heavier manufacturing arms as a key component supplier in the past.
