Trump tipped to extend sanctions relief for Iran

The change casts a spotlight on the data and algorithms used to sort Facebook’s News Feed, which is core to its enormous digital advertising business. Every user sees a different set of content and ads, ranked and tailored based on their characteristics, what they click and what their friends do.

Given the dangerous vulnerability of Seoul, there is no viable military option. North Korea’s regime clearly believes that it is in its national interest to have a nuclear shield. Sanctions will not work. As Russian President Vladi­mir Putin said recently, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would rather have his people “ eat grass” than give up nukes. Nuclear deterrence worked throughout the Cold War despite some very close calls.  Mr. Kim may be reckless and erratic, but he is not a madman. He must know that a nuclear strike against a U.S. city would trigger a catastrophic response. 

A wall of water carrying uprooted trees and boulders flowed like a river through the residential street. About a block up from Farrell’s home, firefighters were helping Devon Crail and his wife, Tiare, retrieve items from his parents’ house.
Hargrave said she did not know what caused the incident to escalate so quickly.“We were certainly thrown into plenty of turmoil with the president’s tweets this morning and that made everything look quite speculative,” Mr. Schiff said. “I do think the underlying bill makes a sensible compromise.”Today, President Trump is expected to yield to pressure, both from within his administration and from allies abroad, to once more extend sanctions relief to Iran as part of the nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic. The White House will announce its move following a meeting between Trump, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis.

It's easy to understand how we got here. Video and other public content have exploded on Facebook in the past couple of years. Since there's more public content than posts from your friends and family, the balance of what's in News Feed has shifted away from the most important thing Facebook can do -\-\ help us connect with each other.

While this is far from Facebook’s first foray into trying to make the Facebook experience more locally focused, the tiny batch of city-specific rollouts and at least sort of hands-on curation efforts suggest that Facebook is trying to move cautiously. Tucked away in its own hidden corner of the app, Today In isn’t prominent enough to be designed as a News Feed replacement or anything so radical — but that’s kind of a shame. Pushing to make Facebook a purpose-built tool for local communities (think utility-driven additions like Marketplace) is certainly a less dystopian vision of the platform’s future, at least compared to staying the course.
