It was one year ago Thursday when Robert Mueller, the former FBI director, was appointed as special counsel to take over the Justice Department's investigation into possible coordination between Russia and Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign. The 12 months since have yielded a flurry of criminal indictments and guilty pleas, tense court appearances, angry tweets from the president and speculation over what the ever-taciturn Mueller already knows and what he'll investigate next. Hundreds of pages of court filings, and public statements from witnesses, have to an extent pulled back the curtain on an extraordinarily secretive investigation. But much remains hidden from view. A look at the last year and what may lie ahead: WHAT IS MUELLER INVESTIGATING? There's no doubt Mueller's investigation is far reaching, but at its core, prosecutors have remained focused on two central questions: Did the Trump campaign collude with the Kremlin to tip the 2016 presidential election in the … [Read more...] about What we’ve learned in 12 months of Mueller’s investigation

Getting sick and tired of receiving bad holiday gifts? How does an HTC One under your tree sound? Yeah, that's what we thought. Well, you can win an HTC One directly from HTC. All you need to do is to start following HTC on Instagram. That's not asking too much, is it? Then you need to snap a picture of a bad gift you once received and send it to #ReplaceMyGift while tagging HTC in the photo. In the caption of the post, you need to explain why the gift is so atrocious. "Ugly tie" and "Too young for AARP membership" are a pair that come to mind.The contest runs until 11:59pm PST on January 5th, 2014.

The beach is the centerpiece of the city’s promise of escape — escape from cold winters or college classes or family, where you can drink goblets of bright green liquor and cruise down Ocean Drive in a rented tangerine Lamborghini before retiring to the warm sand. To the casual observer, the beach may look like the only natural bit of the city, a fringe of shore reaching out from under the glass and pastel skyline. But this would be false: the beach is every bit as artificial as the towers and turquoise pools. For years the sea has been eating away at the shore, and the city has spent millions of dollars pumping up sand from the seafloor to replace it, only to have it wash away again. Every handful of sand on Miami Beach was placed there by someone. That sand is washing away ever faster. The sea around Miami is rising a third of an inch a year, and it’s accelerating. The region is far from alone in its predicament, or in its response to an eroding coast: it’s … [Read more...] about Miami Beach has run out of sand. Now what?
