Daniel Brown, provided by Published 6:20 am PDT, Saturday, October 6, 2018 Daniel Brown/Business Insider FORT BLISS, Texas — US Marines fired so many M777 howitzer rounds in support of Syrian Democratic Forces to oust the terrorist group ISIS from Raqqa that they burned out two barrels. "They fired more rounds in five months in Raqqa, Syria, than any other Marine artillery battalion, or any Marine or Army battalion, since the Vietnam war," Army Sgt. Maj. John Wayne Troxell, a senior enlisted adviser to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told Marine Corps Times at the end of January. "In five months, they fired 35,000 artillery rounds on ISIS targets, killing ISIS fighters by the dozens," Troxell said.

His decision is based on a landmark 2012 Supreme Court ruling involving GPS tracking, known as Jones. Prosecutors had claimed that installing such a tracker was valid under the "border doctrine" exception to the Fourth Amendment, which finds that limited, warrantless searches at the border are allowed. US District Judge Jesus G. Bernal disagreed in an August 24, 2018 ruling. Allen continued, saying that HSI believes that its policy is "consistent" with both the … [Read more...] about Feds to judge: We still think we can put GPS trackers on cars entering US
It may've been a giant leap for mankind, but for many of us, no one has walked on the moon during our lifetime. The stars of stirring space race drama First Man want to remind us of the hope and excitement -- and danger -- of those early days of space exploration.Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon, during the Apollo 11 mission on 20 July 1969, but no one has been back since 1972. Actor Ryan Gosling, who plays Armstrong in First Man, wasn't born until the 1980s and admits that the enormity of the moon mission's achievement was somewhat lost on him."I didn't really think about it," Gosling said when I met the cast in London to discuss the film. "I wish that I had, but I think human space flight had sorta become taken for granted ... The moon man was the MTV logo." Now playing: Watch this: First Man stars on their personal trip to the moon 4:09 One of the things that inspired Gosling and director Damien Chazelle to retell the familiar story is that at the time … [Read more...] about First Man’s Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy remind us space is the place
