NFL rejects veterans group's Super Bowl ad urging people to stand for the anthem
The National Football League has rejected a Super Bowl advertisement from American Veterans urging people to stand for the national anthem. The nation's largest veterans service organization had been invited by the NFL to place an ad in the Super Bowl LII program. AMVET's advertisement included a two-word message - "#PleaseStand." So, the NFL believes that politely asking people to stand for the Star-Spangled Banner is akin to making a political statement?

Unsealed FISA Court Ruling Shows 85% of Obama’s FBI and DOJ 704-5 FISA Searches Were Illegal and Illegally Provided to Government Outsiders
On April 26, 2017, an unsealed FISA Court Ruling unveiled a number of criminal activities that Barack Obama’s FBI and DOJ participated in during his time in office. The report to date received little attention. Now interest is brewing due to the recent actions of Congress and the report that is expected to be released in the upcoming weeks. The FISA Court Ruling shows widespread abuse of the FISA mandate. According to the report, Obama’s FBI and DOJ performed searches on Americans that were against their 4th Amendment rights. This went on for years.  One paragraph in the report states that 85% of the Section 704 and 705(b) FISA searches made during this time were non-compliant with applicable laws and therefore criminal.

Titian painting given to Charles I's plumber goes up for sale
A Titian painting once owned by Charles I and given to his plumber as part payment for money owed is coming to auction. The two-metre tall painting is a show-stopper in its own right, depicting the terrified virgin martyr St Margaret escaping from the mouth of Satan in the shape of a dragon. But its extraordinary provenance adds another layer to its story. Its sale comes as the Royal Academy of Arts prepares to open what is expected to be one of the blockbuster art shows of the year, with works from Charles I’s collection reunited for the first time in 400 years.

Roe v. Wade at 45: Most Americans Support Abortion Restrictions
Only 12 percent of Americans believe abortion should be available at any point in pregnancy, while 76 percent support limiting abortion to the first three months of pregnancy, or to cases involving rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother. Even more interesting, 60 percent of self-identified pro-choice Americans and 60 percent of Democrats support these abortion restrictions; only one in five Democrats said they favor abortion during any stage of pregnancy.

No lines, no checkout, no problem! Is Amazon Go the grocery store of the future?
Retail powerhouse Amazon is disrupting retail yet again, with the opening of its checkout-free Amazon Go grocery store in Seattle. It looks and feels like a regular grocery store, but with one major difference: There's no checkout — and no checkout lines. Upon entering, shoppers scan a special smartphone app that registers them into the store. After grabbing their items, customers are free to walk right out.
