Rashon Nelson initially brushed it off when the Starbucks manager told him he couldn't use the restroom because he wasn't a paying customer. A few minutes later, they hardly noticed when the police came into the coffee shop — until officers started walking in their direction. Nelson and Robinson were led away in handcuffs from the shop in the city's well-to-do Rittenhouse Square neighborhood in an incident recorded on a white customer's cellphone.
The Pentagon has given Lockheed Martin lmt a $928 million contract to develop and build hypersonic missiles, which will be able to travel at more than five times the speed of sound. Hypersonic missiles are a priority for the U.S. military because they are so difficult to defend against—they’re just too fast for today’s anti-aircraft and anti-missile defense systems to counter—and because the country’s biggest geopolitical rivals are steaming ahead. China said last year that it was almost ready to demonstrate its own hypersonic weapons, and Russia claims that it too has conducted successful tests of a hypersonic missile that can carry nuclear or conventional warheads.

Tammie Jo Shults was determined to "break into the club" of male military aviators. One of the first female fighter pilots in the U.S. Navy, Shults flew training missions as an enemy pilot during Operation Desert Storm, while working with other women to see a rule excluding them from combat flights repealed. Twenty-five years later, Shults was at the controls of the Dallas-bound Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 Tuesday when it made an emergency landing in Philadelphia after one of the engines on the Boeing 737 exploded while the plane was traveling 500 mph (800 kph) at 30,000 feet (9144 m) with 149 people on board.

The Bitcoin bulls didn’t get the memo on Wednesday, with Bitcoin only managing a 3.56% rise on day, partially reversing Monday and Tuesday’s losses, to end the day at $8,169.5. A morning rally saw Bitcoin break out from the 23.6% FIB Retracement Level of $7,996.57 to hit a morning $8,168.8 high, breaking through the first major support level of $8,098.87 before seeing a pullback to an early afternoon $7,907.4 to call on buyer support at the 23.6% FIB Retracement Level of $7,996.57.

Harley-Davidson has a well-deserved reputation for, shall we say, aggressively protecting its various trademarks. Case in point is the latest trademark situation with SunFrog.com. Back in 2017, word got back to Milwaukee that Michigan-based SunFrog.com—an online print-on-demand outfit that churns out custom made-to-order shirts, mugs, hoodies, mousepads, etc.—was selling wares featuring assorted images that infringed on Harley’s trademarks.
After Fox News personality Sean Hannity was named as a client of Donald Trump’s personal lawyer—whom he had strenuously defended on air without disclosing the relationship—some observers wondered if Fox News might fire Hannity (as if that were an actual possibility). Another journalist said he was “stunned” that Fox wouldn’t punish Hannity for the blatant violation of journalistic standards. Let’s be clear: Fox News is not, and never has been, a news organization.

A review of the farm’s pest control records flagged an ongoing rodent infestation, with rodents, dead carcasses and baby mice observed, along with workers who weren’t following proper sanitary practices.
Big tobacco is still looking for a savior, if Philip Morris International Inc. is any guide. Shares in the cigarette giant plunged as much as 18 percent after its latest earnings report showed that $4.5 billion spent on four new products are failing to win over new customers. Sales growth of the iQos, a device that heats a tobacco plug without setting it on fire, has been slowing after initial success in Japan. Philip Morris, which sells Marlboros outside the U.S., reported revenue excluding excise taxes of $6.9 billion, less than the $7.03 billion projected by analysts in a Bloomberg survey. The share decline, to as low as $83.50, was the biggest since the company split from Altria Inc. in 2008.
Shares in Apple Inc and its suppliers fell on Thursday after a raft of analysts read a prediction of softer smartphone sales from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd as driven chiefly by concern about demand for iPhones. TSMC, the world's largest contract chipmaker and a major Apple supplier, revised its full-year revenue target to the low end of its earlier forecast. "Apple represents nearly 20 percent of TSMC's revenue so the outlook potentially points to weaker-than-anticipated iPhone demand," Atlantic Equities analyst James Cordwell told Reuters.
Tech darling NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA) should be reporting its fiscal first-quarter 2019 earnings in a couple of weeks, most likely during the week of May 7. NVIDIA stock has returned 139% over the one-year period through April 18, crushing the S&P 500's 17.6%.
Southwest Airlines Co. (NYSE: LUV) and CFM International — the manufacturer of the engine that failed Tuesday morning on a flight that killed a passenger — disagreed on how long it would take to comply with a proposed federal rule that would have called for inspection of fan blades within CFM56-7B engines. That's the same model engine that, on Southwest Flight 1380, came apart mid-flight. Shrapnel hurling from the engine toward the plane caused a window to blow out. The women sitting next to the destroyed window, Jennifer Riordan, died as a result of her injuries. Investigators in the National Transportation Safety Board said Tuesday night a fan blade separated from the hub in the engine. It
On paper, most analysts will agree that Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ:ATVI) is enjoying a solid start to this year. Against the January opener, ATVI stock has gained nearly 9%.

George H.W. Bush has issued the first public statement on the loss of his wife Barbara Bush, who passed away Tuesday night at the age of 92. “I always knew Barbara was the most beloved woman in the world, and in fact I used to tease her that I had a complex about that fact.
When a White House official suggested this week that United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley had suffered “momentary confusion” over the Trump Administration’s approach to new Russian sanctions, she responded with a clear message to the contrary. “With all due respect, I don’t get confused,” Haley said in a statement on Tuesday. The retort — which earned her an apology from National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow — was characteristic of Haley, who has a knack for responding to criticism and slights with a measured, but assertive clapback.
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’s annual shareholder letter, released on Wednesday evening, included an unexpected reveal. Your first question might be to wonder how that number compares to other subscription services for streaming content. To be sure, these are not apples-to-apples comparisons, since Prime is not only for video—in fact, it’s likely that the vast majority of Prime members pay for the service to get the shipping benefits, not for Prime Video.
