C. , as the locations for its new headquarters. “We are excited to build new headquarters in New York City and Northern Virginia,” said Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon, in a statement. Other critics dismissed the 14-month search for a new headquarters as a publicity stunt or an attempt to extract valuable information from cities that Amazon could use to make future decisions that would benefit the company with an unfair advantage over its competitors.

France fires back at Trump's lack of 'common decency'

France's government has fired back at a flurry of critical tweets by Donald Trump, suggesting the U. S. president lacked "common decency" by launching his broadside on a day when France was mourning victims of the November 2015 terror attacks. Nursing grievances from a weekend visit to France, Trump lit into French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday over his suggestion for a European defense force, over French tariffs on U. S. wine and even Macron's approval ratings. France player Benjamin Mendy replied "don't worry bro," placing two stars in his tweet to signify the country's two World Cup victories.

How 'net neutrality' became a hot-button issue

Law professor Tim Wu, now at Columbia University, coined the term "net neutrality" in 2003 to argue for government rules that would prevent big internet providers from discriminating against technology and services that clashed with other aspects of their business. Yet on net neutrality, these tech companies got to be the "good guy," siding on the side of the younger "digital first" generation and consumer groups calling for more protection. And a Democratic takeover of the House in Tuesday's midterm elections could revive efforts to enact net neutrality into federal law, though Trump would likely veto any such attempts.

They also took a little bit of a shot at Alec Baldwin, the recently arrested actor who plays Donald Trump on the show. The main caravan is still weeks from making it to the border, but that didn't stop her guests -- Cecily Strong as Jeanine Pirro and Kenan Thompson as David Clarke -- from joining her in warning the viewers to be concerned. In a not-so-veiled shot at Trump's pledge to end birthright citizenship, he said, "We’ve also learned that all of the women in the caravan are nine months pregnant and are waiting until exactly after they cross the border to give birth.

Report: Saudi investigators worked to remove evidence

Members of a team from Saudi Arabia sent to help Turkish authorities investigate the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi worked instead to remove evidence of the slaying, a senior Turkish official said Monday. The official confirmed a report in Turkey's Sabah newspaper that an 11-member team of Saudi investigators that arrived in Turkey nine days after Khashoggi was killed to take part in a joint Turkish-Saudi probe included experts on chemistry and toxicology who were reportedly charged with obfuscating the evidence. The official said Turkey believes that two members of the team "came to Turkey for the sole purpose of covering up evidence" before Turkish police were allowed to search the Saudi Consulate, where Khashoggi was killed on Oct. 2 after he entered to collect a document he needed to marry his Turkish fiancee.

Wages surge as US adds a robust 250,000 jobs in October

In the final major economic report before Tuesday's congressional elections, the government said Friday that U. S. employers added a robust 250,000 jobs in October. Healthy economic growth is spurring employers to hire at a rapid pace that shows no sign of flagging even with the economy in its 10th year of expansion. The strong job growth and bigger pay increases will likely encourage the Federal Reserve to keep raising short-term interest rates.
