Jul 7, 2017, 1:00 pm EDT

A recent FBI warning says that hackers are targeting nuclear plants in the United States.

The FBI warning came in the form of a security document that was leaked. The leaked document included a urgent amber warning. This is the second-highest rating for the sensitivity of a threat.

G20 Summit 2017: 9 Important Things to Watch

Jul 7, 2017, 11:54 am EDT

The G20 Summit 2017 is starting and some of the most powerful people in the world will come together to discuss the financial state of the world.

Here are a few things to look out for during the G20 Summit 2017.

    President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin have met with friendly handshakes. The event began with protesters and police coming into conflict with one another. The protests are being called “Welcome to Hell” and they are being organized by a group of anticapitalist protesters. It is possible that these protesters will continue to cause trouble as the G20 Summit continues to take place on Friday and Saturday. German chancellor Angela Merkel and President Trump also shook hands when meeting at the event, which is a change from previous meetings between the two. President Trump is expected to bring up trade with Germany at the G20 Summit, despite not being able to negotiate a new deal. Merkel is hoping that she can make the idea of globalization a “win-win situation” and that there shouldn’t always be winners and losers. The President of the United States will also likely focus on ISIS and how best to combat it with the help of the other countries at the meeting. There’s talk that President Trump may bring up allegations that Russia attempted to hack the 2016 Presidential election, but it won’t likely be a public discussion.

Amid the intercontinental tensions that have continued throughout Trump’s presidency, his travel bans, as well as the multiple terrorist attacks that have ravaged the world in 2017, the nation banned laptops from being in the cabins of planes operated by these two airlines.

The airlines were chosen due to the fact that the two companies cater to a number of countries that have been linked with terrorist activity caused by groups of extremists that represent only a small portion of these nations’ populations instead of their people as a whole. Read
