    SpaceX delivers 'mighty mice,' worms, robot to space station

    SpaceX made an early holiday delivery to the International Space Station on Sunday, bringing muscle-bound “mighty mice,” pest-killing worms and a smart, empathetic robot. The station commander, Italy's Luca Parmitano, used a large robot arm to grab onto the Dragon three days after its launch from Cape Canaveral. Flight controllers quickly secured the capsule to the orbiting lab, paving the way for the hatch to open and the unloading to begin.

    Anti-Government Protests Have Rocked Hong Kong for Six Months. Here's a Look Back at the Major Developments

    Sprint exec messages suggest T-Mobile deal may boost prices

    Messages by a Sprint executive revealed in federal court suggested he thought an acquisition by T-Mobile might push up mobile-service prices for consumers, undercutting T-Mobile's argument that its deal will benefit Americans. The text messages, presented by attorneys for a coalition of states suing to block the deal on antitrust grounds, were sent in October 2017 by Roger Sole, Sprint's chief marketing officer, to Sprint's then-CEO Marcelo Claure. Sole wrote that customer prices could rise an average $5 per user if a deal went through.

    Here’s how much stock you should own when you retire

    But once you get there, the only certainty is that you'll have to draw down the assets you've accumulated in your traditional IRAs and 401(k)s through required minimum distributions (RMDs) starting the year after you turn 70½. Before you retire, you should see a reputable financial planner to sort it all out, but many investment advisers are stuck in old thinking and conventional wisdom about how to invest it. So, I'm going to suggest how you can do it yourself.

    'Stuff happens': What Disney did when Disney+ rollout struggled

    When Disney+ launched four weeks ago, The Walt Disney Co. wasn't the happiest place on Earth as widespread reports of problems logging onto and using the new streaming service marred the launch of the direct-to-consumer platform. Disney+ Vice President of Product Michael Cerda got grilled a little bit on the rollout at Variety's Innovate Summit last week, not so much about what happened — Kevin Mayer, chairman of direct-to-consumer and international for Disney, had already addressed that — but whether it was avoidable and what to do when problems arise. It was those 10 million sign-ups, plus a "coding issue," that led to Disney+'s troubled launch, Mayer said last month.

    India's Government Wants to Block Some Muslims From Citizenship. Here's What to Know About a Controversial New Bill

    India is set to make it easier to imprison and deport some members of its 200-million strong Muslim minority, in a significant challenge to the country's secular constitution. This week, Indian lawmakers are expected to pass the Citizenship Amendment Bill through the lower house of Parliament where the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has a huge majority. The BJP came to power under Modi in 2014, but won a landslide reelection in May with an increased majority.

    Apple has 'deep concerns' that ex-employees accused of theft will flee to China

    Apple Inc on Monday told a federal court it has "deep concerns" that two Chinese-born former employees accused of stealing trade secrets from the company will try to flee before their trials if their locations are not monitored. At a hearing in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, prosecutors argued that Xiaolang Zhang and Jizhong Chen should continue to be monitored because they present flight risks. Federal prosecutors alleged Zhang worked on Apple's secretive self-driving car program and took files related to the project before disclosing that he was going to work for a Chinese competitor.

Karen Littlefair, of Newport Beach, will say she conspired with the scam's admitted mastermind, Rick Singer, to have an employee of his college counseling business take the classes for her son and submit them to the school, U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling in Massachusetts said Monday.
