Comey Scheduled to Testify to Congress on Friday

Top Stories - Mon, 12/03/2018 - 16:13

Former FBI director James Comey will reportedly testify to Congress in a closed-door hearing on Friday. The news comes after months of back-and-forth between Comey and the House Judiciary Committee, which had issued a subpoena requesting that Comey testify in a private hearing. The former FBI director expressed a wish to testify publicly and initiated a brief legal battle over the subpoena, accusing Committee Republicans of intending “to mislead the public and to undermine public confidence in the FBI and the DOJ,” by selectively leaking bits of testimony from his private testimony.

Top Stories - Mon, 12/03/2018 - 14:24

The phase two certification sets the stage for initial operational test and evaluation next year of KC-46, which has troubled Boeing for years as it struggled to get airworthiness certifications and complete flight tests. "We are seeing great progress in both test and production and expect the positive momentum to continue as we begin delivering aircraft," said Mike Gibbons, Boeing KC-46 tanker vice president and program manager. Phase three certification testing will be conducted by the U.S. Air Force in 2019 with additional military planes other than those that participated in the phase two testing, which included F-16, F-15E and C-17, Boeing said.

Iran missile tests may breach UN resolution, France and UK warn

Top Stories - Mon, 12/03/2018 - 14:01

France and the UK have echoed warnings by Donald Trump’s administration that Iran may be in breach of United Nations obligations by testing medium-range ballistic missiles capable of carrying multiple warheads. The remarks from Paris and London will be seen by the US government as the first sign that its key European partners may yet be persuaded to view Iran’s broader behaviour as so dangerous that their support for the 2015 Iran nuclear deal can no longer be justified. The US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, criticised Iran’s missile programme at the weekend and will be at a Nato foreign ministers’ meeting in Brussels over the next two days to underline his message about the threat to Middle East stability posed by Iran.

New wireless charging AirPods rumor could mean Apple is finally going to release AirPower soon

Macworld - Mon, 12/03/2018 - 14:00

A lot has happened since Apple unveiled the iPhone X on September 12, 2017. We saw the launch of HomePod, Apple’s first smart speaker, a new Apple Watch, home button-less iPad Pros, new MacBook Pros, a new MacBook Air and Mac Mini, and a new lineup of iPhones. What Apple hasn’t released are two products that were teased alongside the iPhone X: a wireless charging AirPods case and the AirPower charging mat. That might be changing soon though.

According to oft-accurate analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via a 9to5Mac report), Apple is finally gearing up to release a version of AirPods “with wireless charging support,” which likely refers to a separate charging case. While Apple never placed a release date on what Phil Schiller called an “optional new wireless charging case,” it was presumed that it would release at the same time as AirPower, which at the time was pegged for a 2018 release.

Michelle Obama returned on Monday to the London girls' school that inspired her global education initiative when she was U.S. First Lady, nine years after her first visit as part of a tour to promote her memoir. Obama urged students to believe they could do anything if they were prepared to work hard enough and called on colleges and universities to do more to attract less privileged pupils. The ethnically diverse school, which Obama visited in 2009 on her first official trip to Britain, has around 60 languages spoken among its 900 female pupils.

Shell to set sector-leading emissions targets after investor pressure

Top Stories - Mon, 12/03/2018 - 12:16

Rivals BP and Total have already set short-term targets on reducing carbon dioxide emissions, but these are limited to their own operations. Shell's targets, which will be introduced in 2020, will be more extensive with inclusion of the so-called Scope 3 emissions from the burning of fuels sold to millions of customers around the world, the company said. Monday's move marks a change of tack for Shell Chief Executive Ben van Beurden, who had previously resisted setting hard goals, saying it would be "foolhardy" to expose Shell to legal challenges.
