Trump/Russia/text-gate—it’s not that I take a side. I just don’t know any actual facts to tell y’all. I consider text-gate to be a serious matter all by itself but what can I say?
BGR:Apple reportedly plans to discontinue the first-gen iPhone X later this year
looks like the idea of a phone with a hole in it and four or more cameras watching every move you make wasn’t the best coolest idea ever. X will be dropped when the new lineup is announced in the fall.
FoxBusiness:Davos CEOs’ optimism booms on Trump tax cuts
The PwC survey of nearly 1,300 CEOs found that 57 percent expect global growth to improve in 2018, almost twice the level of last year and the largest increase since the survey began in 2012.
The optimism was especially strong in the United States after a year of robust growth, deregulation and tax cuts under President Donald Trump.
RT:Mayon volcano in Philippines spews lava fountains & ash plumes as thousands more flee
The sporadic eruption of Mayon in Albay province on the island of Luzon started on January 13. Since then, it has affected at least 54 villages in the area with a combined population of over 70,000 people.
Daily Express:Alaska earthquake: Fears grow for Mount St Helens volcano ERUPTION after 8.2 quake
THE 8.2 magnitude earthquake that has triggered tsunami warnings off the coast of Alaska has sparked fears it could awaken America’s most deadly volcano Mount St Helens, with the 8,363ft mountain’s threat level at “very high” as shockwaves rattle the northwest states.
The volcano in Washington state left 57 people dead and levelled 250 homes when a 5.1 magnitude earthquake caused it to erupt in 1980.
And it is now feared the volcano could erupt again in the wake of this morning’s powerful earthquake off the coast of Alaska.
RT:FBI agent sent ‘jaw-dropping’ text about no Russia collusion – senator
Peter Strzok, formerly the deputy assistant director of the FBI’s counterintelligence division, sent a text to his mistress, FBI attorney Lisa Page, on May 19, 2017 – just two days after the special counsel was appointed to investigate claims of President Donald Trump’s collusion with Russia during the 2016 campaign. Strzok had led the investigation into Trump since July 2016, and had previously been involved in the probe of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.
“You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern that there’s no big there there,” Strzok texted Page, according to Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin), who read out the message on Tuesday during an interview with WISN-Milwaukee radio host Jay Weber.

OutsideOnline:Keep Your Hands on the Wheel and Don’t Look Down
The most perilous road in America gets 300 inches of snow a year, features 70 named avalanche paths, and has almost no guardrails. Who would be crazy enough to keep Colorado’s infamous Highway 550 clear in winter? Leath Tonino hopped into the cab of a Mack snowplow truck to find out.
