REUTERS/Brendan McDermidROME (Reuters) - Italy’s antitrust authority said on Monday it had fined Apple 10 million euros ($12 million) for “aggressive and misleading” commercial practices regarding its iPhones. The regulator said in a statement the company advertised that several iPhone models were water-resistant without clarifying they were only so under certain circumstances. It added that the company’s disclaimer, saying that its phones were not covered by warranty in case of damage from liquids, tricked clients, who were also not provided support when their phones were damaged by water or other liquids. Apple declined to comment.

John Fetterman, Pennsylvania's lieutenant governor, spoke to Business Insider about President Donald Trump, voter fraud, criminal justice reform, and his state's East vs. West rivalry. In 2024, however, he fully expects Donald Trump to be a candidate for US president. And I think that's one of the main missing links and criminal justice conversation in America today. If Donald Trump tweeted one plus one equals three, they would put a thing saying "this is in dispute." Like, if that doesn't help my Philadelphia cred, oh my god, I don't know what I got for you.

The startling aspect about the Dolchstosslegende is this: It did not grow weaker after 1918 but stronger. According to the Pew Research Center, 89 percent of Trump supporters believe that a Joe Biden presidency would do “lasting harm to the U.S.,” while 90 percent of Biden supporters think the reverse. Since the election, millions of Trump supporters have installed the alternative social media app Parler. It took another war and decades of reappraisal for the Dolchstosslegende to be exposed as a disastrous, fatal fallacy.

Interviews with more than 80 current and former drivers in Nairobi and the port city of Mombasa show that, in Kenya's biggest markets, untold numbers of Uber drivers are drowning in debt. But Uber drivers in Kenya are not alone in their experiences. Some Uber drivers have adapted their vehicles for alternative uses, saying they earn more selling fruit and vegetables than driving with the app. At the outset, Uber drivers were making 60 shillings per kilometer — about 97 cents a mile. Onduru, the Uber spokesperson, said that "in order to partner with Uber, drivers are asked to review and agree to Uber's terms and conditions."

(Reuters) - No word as to whether Star Trek’s Scotty “beamed it up,” but the mysterious, shiny monolith that was spotted in a remote southeastern Utah desert two weeks ago is gone. Neither the federal Bureau of Land Management nor the state’s Department of Public Safety said they had any idea. “We have received reports that the illegally installed structure, referred to as the ‘monolith’ has been removed from Bureau of Land Management public lands by an unknown party,” the state agency posted on Saturday on its website. It said the object was reportedly removed on Friday evening. His son, Patrick McCracken, has told The New York Times his father told him in 2002 that “he would like to leave his artwork in remote places to be discovered later.”

The college experience has been transformed by the pandemic: Students are no longer studying in libraries, spending their weekends at wild fraternity parties, navigating clubs and stressing about midterms while planning their semester abroad. But for me, and around 70 percent of my fellow full-time students who also work while attending college, this was never really our college experience. Work-life balance as a college student is difficult to parse in the best of the times, but right now, it feels almost impossible. Whether it's supporting themselves and their families or working a part-time internship or part-time job, students are performing a high-stakes balancing act. Abolishing unpaid internships and other barriers for college students to get higher-paying, experience-building jobs is just one way colleges can acknowledge their students’ needs right now.

Garcia Luna is accused of taking suitcases of cash from the cartel to ensure safe passage for its drugs as well as passing on information about its rivals. Citing sources, Milenio said Garcia Luna would be tried in the United States before being extradited to Mexico.
