    Trump Surrenders 2.5 Billion Barrels Of Oil To Syria

    The American president just gifted 2.5 billion barrels of oil to long-time Syrian enemy Bashar Al-Assad and, by default, Iran and Russia. As far as gifts go, it was both well-received and unexpected given the 'Deep State' designs on Syria for years. To recap: Last week, Trump ordered the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria, and then had them stand down and step aside while the Turkish military poured across the border into Northern Syria, taking down any Kurds that stood in their way.

    Tesla’s Futuristic Door Handles Blamed for Death in Fiery Wreck

    Omar Awan, a 48-year-old anesthesiologist, was driving his leased Tesla in February when he lost control on a south Florida parkway and the car slammed into a palm tree, according to a wrongful death lawsuit filed in state court in Broward County. A police officer couldn't open the doors because the handles were retracted and bystanders watched helplessly as the car filled with smoke and flames, according to the complaint, which alleges the fire originated with the car's battery. The door handles on the Model S are flush with the car and pop out -- “auto-present” in the words of Tesla -- when they detect that the key fob is nearby.

    Boeing Max Design, Airline Maintenance Faulted in Lion Air Crash

    Design flaws in Boeing Co.'s 737 Max, a failure to share vital information with pilots and airline maintenance stumbles contributed to last year's crash of Lion Air Flight 610, which killed 189 people, investigators have concluded.
