The Nightshift: 29 June 2017

Press Clippings:

Good Morning, it’s Thursday, 29 June 2017 and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift, the world’s overnight news feed.
Restrictions on travel into the U.S. go into effect today as part of a modest implementation of  select elements of the Administration’s proposed overall travel ban.  The U.S. Supreme Court will determine the legality of the  full extent of the travel ban’s coverage this fall when it reconvenes.
The Trumpcare health bill is now on life support. Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina has said that if the bill–criticized for the number of people  who would be denied insurance under the proposal and the built-in tax breaks hidden in the bill  for the rich–is not passed by this Friday (tomorrow), it’s finished. Without bi-partisan support, it doesn’t look like any health care bill is going to pass.Both sides and both houses of Congress need to re-think the entire process.
Again. The third ranking official in the Vatican and the leader of the Catholic Church in Australia, Cardinal George Pell, who is an aide to Pope Francis, has been charged with sexual assault and will appear in an Australian Court on 18 July 2017.
The cyberware attack that crippled businesses in Europe and Asia, was conducted with hacking tools taken from the U.S.’s National Security Agency. The attack  hit companies and government entities in the Ukraine and the United Kingdom particularly hard. The NSA has been criticized for creating a cyber warfare arsenal that it does not have sufficient protective control over and that does not have “backdoor” access to disable once the software is unleashed. The whole situation is starting to look a little like Stanley Kubrick’s classic cold war film, “Dr. Strangelove”.
Michael Bond, the creator of Paddington Bear, perhaps the world’s favorite childhood toy (or companion), has died. He was 91.
Finally, 10 years ago today the iPhone was born. All it did was change everything.
