It shouldn’t be anyone’s business what you choose to do with your free time, but if you’re the boss of one of the largest companies in the world, you should at least make sure nobody finds out about your predilections. After all, everyone has a pretty decent camera in their pocket these days, and Samsung makes a huge number of them. He may be in a coma right now, but Samsung Group chairman Lee Kun-hee is being investigated for having allegedly solicited the services of prostitutes multiple times between 2011 and 2013.
After getting off to a rocky start yesterday as Bernie Sanders’ supporters vented their frustrations, the Democratic National Convention has calmed down considerably on Tuesday, due in large part to the fact that Sanders was able to speak to his delegates for over half an hour from the main stage last night.

Luckily for us, it’s easy to watch along. The convention is being livestreamed on Twitter, and there’s also an official RNC YouTube channel that you can pull up on your mobile device, laptop computer, smart TV, dumb TV, Roku box, Chromecast, or basically anything that receives The Internet.
In other words, the Donald will be impossible to escape.
New York City’s subway system is probably one of the best in the world, but it’s in desperate need of a makeover. Luckily for New Yorkers who rely on the subway for their daily commutes, the city is ready to upgrade the system over the next five years.

We’re all currently living in a horrible parody movie written by the Wayans brothers. It’s the only plausible explanation for the road to the 2016 election, which will take place this coming November unless the Earth opens up before then and swallows us all.
Monday night’s kickoff of the Republican National Convention was a spectacle that didn’t just meet our expectations, it exceeded them. Wildly. Every twist and turn on Trump’s campaign trail led up to this, so it was only right that the RNC had its fair share of drama. And as it turned out, not even the Wayans brothers could have dreamt up the ridiculousness that unfolded in Cleveland, OH last night. More →

You don’t have to be French to know that Bastille Day is the country’s national holiday. It’s a day for impressive military parades in Paris and fireworks shows across the country. But July 14th will also be remembered henceforward as the day a person took a 25-ton truck and drove it into a crowd in Nice during the celebration. The attack, labeled as terrorism by authorities, left at least 84 people killed, and hundreds of others injured. At least 18 of the injured are in critical condition, officials said. More →
Just a day after “Pokemon GO” sparked controversy as characters in the game appeared in somber locations like the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and Arlington National Cemetery, a U.S. senator has called for the company that makes the game to give “greater clarity” about how it handles users’ security and privacy.
Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., posted an open letter to the CEO of Niantic, John Hanke, Tuesday, asking for more information from the game-maker. Pointing out that “Pokemon GO” has been downloaded about 7.5 million times, Franken stated in the letter that he was “concerned about the extent to which Niantic may be unnecessarily collecting, using, and sharing a wide range of users’ personal information without their appropriate consent.”
Whether you like Pokemon Go or not, the game is here to stay. But there’s a time and a place for catching tiny AR creatures, a fact that seems to have bypassed some players.
