Top Stories - Thu, 05/24/2018 - 15:48

By Vivian Sequera and Andreina Aponte CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela's newly re-elected President Nicolas Maduro on Thursday pledged to release some jailed opposition activists, boost the OPEC member's tanking oil production and open dialogue with business leaders. Maduro won a Sunday election that critics at home and abroad condemned as a farce cementing his autocracy, at a time when the oil-rich nation is suffering from increasingly dire food shortages, health crises, and mass emigration. Opposition politicians have said it is unlikely that he will make significant changes to the crumbling state-led economic model inherited from his predecessor, the late Hugo Chavez.

Macworld - Thu, 05/24/2018 - 13:51

Best Buy is having a big sale for Memorial Day, and we’re happy to see that some of its best deals focus on Apple products. Not only are there great deals on MacBook Pros (which, honestly, we’ve kind of come to expect from Best Buy sales at this point), but you’ll even find nice discounts on the iPhone 8/8 Plus and the HomePod. 

A few of these deals have been active for a couple of days now, but it’s nice to see them lumped together. You can get the most recent 13-inch MacBook Pro without Touch Bar (Core i7) for just $1,149.99 (down from $1,299.00), for example, and you can lop off an additional $50 if you qualify for student pricing. For that matter, you can save $200 on the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, which brings the price down from $1,499.99 to $1,299.99. Other options are available as well.

Lebanon's Hariri named PM, wants unity government fast

Top Stories - Thu, 05/24/2018 - 12:36

Saad al-Hariri was designated as Lebanon's next prime minister on Thursday and said all parties agreed that a national unity government must be formed as quickly as possible due to economic risks at home and growing dangers in the region. The new coalition government is expected to reflect the enhanced political position of the Iran-backed Shi'ite group Hezbollah and allies that support its possession of arms, which together won at least 70 of parliament's 128 seats in an election on May 6. Hariri won the support of nearly all the MPs in the new parliament during consultations with President Michel Aoun on Thursday, reflecting his status as the top Sunni politician despite his steep losses in the election.

Six families of victims killed in one of America's worst mass shootings have filed a lawsuit against conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who has claimed the massacre days shortly before Christmas 2012 never happened. Twenty small children and six adults were killed in less than five minutes on December 14, 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, by 20-year-old killer Adam Lanza who then turned the gun on himself. A Connecticut law firm filed the defamation lawsuit in Bridgeport on Wednesday accusing Jones, his far-right website Infowars, other financial backers, one of his guests and another associate of greed in peddling their campaign.
