Good Morning, It’s Saturday, 13 May 2017 and this is the Mid-day Edition of The Nightshift: the world’s overnight news feed.
A global cyber attack/ransomware scheme has hit all over the world and is causing immense problems. The tool used for the attack was allegedly stolen from the NSA. Be very careful online.
Washington is boiling as the Trump administration, the White House staff, and members of Congress and the media try to make sense of the continuous turmoil that seems to be the modus operandi of the new era in American politics. Sooner or later, this constant drama has to end–the nation’s business is not getting done and what is getting done is very poorly presented, over-politicized, and not very well thought out.
The Player’s Championship continues today. Louis Oosthuizen and Kyle Stanley share the lead at 9 under. Tomorrow, the Golden State Warriors take the court against the San Antonio Spurs. Golden State has an immense out of talent; San Antonio has the best coach in basketball. Should be entertaining.
Tomorrow is Mother’s Day. You’ve done all your shopping and arranging for dinner, right?
Now more than ever, catch up on the news in the rest of the world by reading the front pages of the World’s Greatest newspapers.
