Fast-forward to today, and what does the new BlackBerry Mobile talk about when promoting its BlackBerry Key2 smartphone? Privacy, security and a new physical keyboard. The graduates may have been listening; the leaders of tech maybe not as much.
The investigation, conducted by T&M Protection Resources, a New York-based firm, included interviews with 47 witnesses who reported misconduct from the 1970s through 2017. But Morgan Dolan, the lead prosecutor, countered that “weapons like knives and machetes kill” and the gang members “went in knowing that.”
“Don’t ignore us,” Ms. Davis pleaded with the panel. “We are real.” It made for delectable television. As Mr. Taricani later noted, the tape showed the public what corruption looks like. But it was also secret grand jury material.
WASHINGTON — The Senate on Friday voted down a bipartisan measure that would have required President Trump to get Congress’s permission before striking Iran, after Republicans balked at infringing on the president’s war-making powers at a time of escalating tensions with the Islamic republic. “I won’t allow foreign NGOs to dictate the law on national borders for a country like Italy,” said the interior minister, Matteo Salvini.
But a review of campaign finance records and his public comments show that he is the lawmaker referred to in the indictment as “Congressman-1,” who is described as having received large campaign contributions from Mr. Parnas and Mr. Fruman, and whom Mr. Parnas asked for help in removing the United States ambassador to Ukraine, Marie L.

Alabama and Illinois — one overwhelmingly red, the other blue — were more representative of this year’s tone, providing perhaps the best examples of political parties moving to enact utterly different agendas.
But the funds are dwindling. It would take an estimated 5 million to finish off demining in Angola. Current funding is less than 20 percent of that. During the Mesozoic Era, multiple lineages of crocodilians returned to the water. Among them were juggernauts like the dinosaur-killing Deinosuchus, as well as the ancestors of modern crocodiles. This transition from active land animals to semiaquatic ambush predators is likely why modern crocodiles evolved a more coldblooded lifestyle, according to Dr. Seymour.
“The vague and open-ended provisions in the bill could effectively grant blanket impunity to officials responsible for serious human rights abuses,” José Miguel Vivanco, the Americas director at Human Rights Watch, said in a statement. “Any amnesty that guarantees impunity by absolving government and military officials responsible for the most serious human rights violations is incompatible with Venezuela’s international obligations.” I was adopted from Quito, Ecuador, when I was 4 months old. I became a citizen along with my adoption and am now 26 years old.
On Friday morning, Twitter couldn't get enough of a guy Naruto-running through the Nevada desert behind a reporter on live TV. "Naruto run" refers to an awkward way of running depicted in the Japanese anime Naruto, where main character Naruto Uzumaki flings his arms behind him. The original Facebook Area 51 event description famously said, "We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry," the original text read. "If we Naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Let's see them aliens." “Diving into carrier services is like diving into an ocean and trying to swim with sharks,” said Toni Toikka, chief executive of Alekstra, a research company that studies phone bills. “Those animals are predators and you are prey. They will eat you sooner or later.”
