Oct 11, 2016, 12:58 pm EST

President Barack Obama said that the United States plans to send people to Mars by the 2030s.

It’s been widely reported now that Trump took a loss of nearly $1 billion in the mid-1990s, giving him the opportunity to avoid taxes for decades if he would’ve been smarter about how he filed taxes. The Republican presidential nominee then challenged billionaire Buffett regarding his tax situation.

Trumo claimed during the second presidential debate that Buffett did not pay his taxes by exploiting a loophole in the system. The investor quickly refuted this claim, proving that he had been paying taxes since 1944, when he was 13 years old. Read 

2016 Election: Who Won the Second Presidential Debate?

Oct 10, 2016, 11:46 am EST

Who won the second presidential debate between Republican candidate Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

There’s some debate over who won the second presidential debate, but it appears that the majority of people felt that Hillary Clinton was last night’s winner.

    “Clinton didn’t need to win this debate. Trump did. And while he exceeded expectations a bit and was able to stay more-or-less on message, it wasn’t a tremendous victory by any means, and he’s such a wounded candidate he’ll likely continue limping to Election Day.” — Will Rahn, CBS News “Clinton went into this debate with massive momentum in the race — much of it caused by Trump’s stumbles — and didn’t make any sort of glaring error that would allow the Republican back into the contest.” — Chris Cillizza, The Washington Post. “Donald Trump came into this debate at a huge deficit, his campaign reeling from the release of a 2005 video on which he bragged about sexually assaulting women. So he had a big hole to climb out of, and he did not do it.” — Cathleen Decker, Los Angeles Times “Whatever chance Donald Trump still had of capturing the White House largely evaporated Sunday night in his second debate with Hillary Clinton.” — David Gergen, CNN

CNN also held a poll that included responses from 537 registered voters who watched the debate on Sunday night. 57% of respondents said Hillary Clinton won and 34% said that Donald Trump did. A poll from YouGov on who won the second presidential debate was much closer with 47% voting Clinton and 42% voting Trump. Read

However, it also included moderator Elaine Quijano as one of the losers for quickly losing control of the debate and never getting it back. Read 

Did Yahoo Secretly Scan Users E-Mail for U.S. Intelligence?

Oct 4, 2016, 5:25 pm EST

Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) e-mail customers are livid over the fact that the company may have shared sensitive data to government agencies.

The National Security Agency (NSA) and the Federal Investigation Bureau (FBI) reportedly asked the tech giant’s legal team to create a software that would read its users’ e-mail. Yahoo would then share certain data with these agencies.

There were a number of specific characters that the agencies were looking for, and it is unclear what these were or what purpose the NSA had with this move. The move apparently would unveil the information of all arriving messages rather than a select few accounts. Read
