Everyone in this circle is either a G+ page representing a News focused organization or people that work in association with a News focused organization. The information posted on this stream is so exhaustive that i don't even read News sites anymore.

In the world of website domains, Hillary Clinton's name is prime real estate. The likely Democratic #presidential  hopeful already claims one: HillaryClinton.com. That's owned by Friends of Hillary, the #campaign  committee created for her U.S. #Senate  runs in 2000 and 2006. And she used it when she ran for president in 2008. Today, HillaryClinton.com's homepage gives no inkling that another campaign is afoot, but that's expected to change soon. Now that it's virtually certain Clinton's going to make a bid for the White House next year, owners of "official sounding" Clinton domain names have dollar signs in their eyes. #HillaryClinton  http://cnnmon.ie/1JkmcKJ

Just 18 years ago Apple flirted with bankruptcy. Now it's trying to become America's first $1 trillion company. Steve Jobs helped return #Apple  to greatness by churning out innovative products like the iPod and iPhone that consumers fell in love with. Since taking over for Jobs in August 2011, current Apple CEO Tim Cook has doubled the tech behemoth's earnings and profits, thanks largely to strong sales of the latest generations of the #iPhone . Cook has also plunged the company into the world of wearable technology with the Apple Watch, which started taking pre-orders last week. It's already back ordered until June. #SteveJobs   #TimCook    http://cnnmon.ie/1ESqA3T

The #Surface3  is a remarkable piece of hardware that could not have existed a year ago. #Microsoft 's new PC-tablet is just a hair bigger and heavier than Apple's iPad Air, yet it is a full #PC  that runs all the Windows software you're accustomed to -- including iTunes, Chrome, Office, and the slew of applications your company makes you download to work from home. Combine that with the fact that the Surface 3 has a beautiful screen, day-long battery life, booming speakers, a stand-out design -- and costs just $628 -- and you have a device that would have been unthinkable in 2014. http://cnnmon.ie/1FCmiMj

#Instagram  is easing up on its no-nipple policy, but insists it will still scrub kiddie bathtub pictures from the site. The photo-sharing social network clarified its community guidelines this week, explaining exactly what kind of #nudity  is banned and what is allowed. Images that show sexual intercourse, genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks are banned. So are photos of female breasts, if they include the nipple -- except for pictures of breastfeeding or post-mastectomy scarring. Nudity in photos of paintings and sculptures is okay, too. http://cnnmon.ie/1DeurCR

A #Roomba  for your lawn? Sounds like a good idea. Unless you're an astronomer. A #robotic   #lawnmower  in development by #iRobot , the company that brought us the Roomba, has riled up a group of #astronomers . They say the robot mowers will mess up their radio telescopes. The big-to-do is about the communication between the robots and a kind of invisible fence owners will have to set up to keep the robotic lawnmowers from straying from their lawns. The fence is created by tiny field beacons that instruct the robotic lawnmower where to go.  http://cnnmon.ie/1G0yuXr

If you were hoping to buy the Apple Watch at an Apple Store on April 24, you will have to reset your watch alarm. #Apple  has changed its plans to make its new #smartwatch  available for purchase in stores next Friday. You can still pre-order one online, and you can make an appointment to try one on in an Apple Store. But you'll likely have to wait until June for your Apple Watch to ship to you. http://cnnmon.ie/1FP5fEr

As gadgets evolve, typing has only gotten harder. Laptop keyboards are more cramped and flatter than desktop keyboards. BlackBerry keyboards force you to type with your thumbs. #Smartphone   keyboards make you to type on glass. If you're holding a tablet with one hand, it's even harder to type on than a phone. And smartwatches are so tiny that most have given up on keyboards altogether. But new apps and tools are make entering #text  -- and #emojis  -- a little less excruciating. http://cnnmon.ie/1FOZabg

Rhea Shannon is the kind of girl who is passionate about telling stories, and is quick with a smile. Shannon shared the story of her father, a Marine, who died while on active duty in Afghanistan during her senior year of college. The loss of her father broke Shannon's heart in more ways than one. She was left with $54,000 in #studentloans . Barely two hours after the story was published on CNNMoney, Shannon got a phone call from Ashlynne Haycock at Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, also known as #TAPS  .
Haycock called to offer Shannon the impossible: To wipe the entire #debt . http://cnnmon.ie/1cyKEgx

For newlyweds Eric and Lauren Oxford, two teachers living on meager salaries in Massachusetts, their expected $3,500 tax refund meant everything. They've been saving up diligently since 2013. Combined with their summertime lump pay, they'd have just enough to start shopping for their first home together. Instead, when their lease is up this month, they'll be moving in with his mom.

For newlyweds Eric and Lauren Oxford, two teachers living on meager salaries in Massachusetts, their expected $3,500 tax refund meant everything. They've been saving up diligently since 2013. Combined with their summertime lump pay, they'd have just enough to start shopping for their first home together. Instead, when their lease is up this month, they'll be moving in with his mom. And it's all because someone stole Eric's Social Security number -- and claimed a refund in his name. Now the couple's entire #tax   #refund  is being held at the #IRS  .

A safe space for #marijuana  users. That's what co-founder Todd Mitchem hopes to create with High There -- "a social connection app for cannabis consumers." Users can look for dates or simply other like-minded people. But for those used to dating apps like #Tinder  or #OKCupid  , the questions will probably be a bit unfamiliar. Instead of asking for your hobbies or education, High There asks if you prefer smoking or edibles and if you're high energy or low energy. http://cnnmon.ie/1b3fGge

Good for you, Mark Zuckerberg. In a surprise Q&A session Tuesday evening, the #Facebook   #CEO  said he only spends 50 to 60 hours each week doing "real work" in the office or in meetings. But he conceded that if the definition of "work" were expanded, he'd be working his "whole life." "That depends on what you count as work," #Zuckerberg  said in response to a question about how many hours he works each day. "I spend most of my time thinking about how to connect the world and serve our community better, but a lot of that time isn't in our office or meeting with people or doing what you'd call real work." http://cnnmon.ie/1HrPgkm

As speculation swirls about Brian Williams' fate at NBC, his predecessor is calling for patience. In his first extensive public comments on the matter, #TomBrokaw  who held the anchor chair at "NBC Nightly News" for more than 20 years, called the controversy surrounding Williams' exaggerated tales a "really, really serious case." "There's a process underway," Brokaw said at an event held at the University of Chicago's Institute of Politics on Monday night. "And the important thing is that the process is very carefully constructed, and we owe it to everybody -- including Brian and his family and certainly the people who work at NBC News who risk their lives everyday, and to the integrity of what NBC News has stood for all these years -- to let the process play out, to hear what the final conclusions are and then deal with it at that point." ... more »

Companies are struggling to fend off cyber attacks as #hackers  get faster, sneakier and more creative. A new report from #Internet  security firm #Symantec  provides an alarming picture of how difficult it's becoming for computer users to stay safe online. Last year was a big one for high-profile cybercrime, from the Heartbleed bug to major corporate attacks, and Sony's embarrassing hack. Symantec's analysis of #security   threats in 2014 revealed thieves are working faster than companies can defend themselves, and launching more malicious attacks than in previous years. http://cnnmon.ie/1NCCVP5

It's a serious question: Should all governments prohibit the use of killer #robots ? Harvard Law School and Human Rights Watch published a report Thursday calling for a ban on "autonomous weapons" -- before it's too late. It's an attempt to stop us from building pistol-toting Terminators, smart vehicles with mounted machine guns, and self-piloted bomber drones. #killerrobots   http://cnnmon.ie/1yj2u0X

#LA   will soon be able to control all its LED street lights with a single laptop. The plan, announced Wednesday, is to attach mobile chips to the existing #streetlights  that will connect them all via the city's cellular network. The system will allow a city worker to turn individual lights on or off -- say, to accommodate a film shoot -- and to brighten the lights -- for instance when a sporting event gets out downtown. It will also alert the city when an individual light goes out and monitor each bulb's energy use. And it can all be done through a web browser. http://cnnmon.ie/1GwWiF8

When the company was small, Google cared a lot about getting kids from Harvard, Stanford, and MIT. But Bock said it was the "wrong" hiring strategy.

You're still not going to mistake #Siri  for a real person, but the iPhone's digital assistant speaks more clearly after Apple's new iOS 8.3 update. A YouTube video sent to #Apple  blog 9to5Mac lets you hear the difference between the old Siri and the new one. In the video, a more lifelike Siri says certain words much more naturally, as if they were recorded by an actual person. The digital assistant's cadence has also improved, as the pitch of Siri's voice drops at the end of clauses just like a natural English speaker's would. http://cnnmon.ie/1NW9imR

You may vaguely recall that in 2012 Congress "fixed" the Alternative Minimum #Tax  -- or what the Tax Policy Center dubbed "the epitome of pointless complexity." But that doesn't mean the so-called "wealth tax" was simplified or eliminated. The #AMT  is still alive and complicated. What lawmakers did was permanently tie the amount of income exempted from the AMT to inflation. Those income levels, however, are still fairly low ($52,800 for singles this year; $82,100 for married couples filing jointly). #middleclass  http://cnnmon.ie/1JkV4ev

It is available through #AppleTV ,   iPhones and iPads, as well as one major #broadband    #Internet   provider, #Cablevision  .

Somaliland is a self-declared independent state in Somalia that is still recovering from decades of civil war and a severe drought.

It is staffed by American teachers who work on "volunteer pay," according to the school.

In a number of cities across the country, animal control agencies are aggressively going after pet owners with big fines for small violations. Some hold people's pets until they settle their bills -- and sometimes that means the pets end up killed. Others leave the dogs alone but issue arrest warrants for owners who can't pay up.
The penalties are serious, often amounting to hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

March was tough for the U.S. #economy . The U.S. only added 126,000 #jobs   in March, the lowest since December 2013 and well below the CNNMoney economist survey forecast of 244,000. The unemployment rate remained the same at 5.5%. Perhaps the biggest disappointment is that #wage  growth stayed sluggish. Average hourly earnings went up only 2.1% over last year. The goal is to see 3.5% -- or better -- wage growth. To put that another way, Americans made $24.34 an hour a year ago. That only bumped up to $24.86 an hour now. http://cnnmon.ie/1argcnV

The Unreasonable Institute wants to be a beacon for a certain type of #entrepreneur : business-savvy #humanitarians  hellbent on tackling the world's #social  problems. "We're not about ideology but about supporting ideas that actually work," said Teju Ravilochan, 28, who co-founded the Boulder, Colo.-based accelerator with Daniel Epstein and Tyler Hartung in 2010. In five years, it's graduated 116 #startups   (half of which are international) from its five-week program. 90% of its graduates are still in business and have raised a total of $90 million in seed funding. http://cnnmon.ie/1FplKt3

#ThrowbackThursday: On this day in 1980, President Jimmy Carter signed the Crude Oil Windfall Profits Tax Act in an attempt to soothe America's ailing finances. A year before that, Carter had eliminated controls on oil prices, sending oil profits soaring. In the economic aftermath, Carter urged Congress to create legislation that would give the government a piece of the oil industry's good fortune. By 1990, the legislation had helped haul in roughly $227 billion. #TBT

Move over, #Google  Fiber. Comcast is about to launch an ultra-fast #Internet  service of its own -- and it will be speedier than anything else on the market. #Comcast  said its new Gigabit Pro service will reach speeds of up to 2 Gigabits per second, which is twice as fast as what Google, AT&T and a handful of other #broadband  companies offer. Atlanta residents will be the first customers to get the service. http://cnnmon.ie/1G7eF3e

April Fools' Day is here, which means that businesses around the world are letting their guard down. When visiting com.google, #Google   flipped its homepage to let visitors experience a mirror image of whatever they were typing and reading. "We're always looking ahead, but sometimes it's important to reflect," the company tweeted. And they're far from the only ones pulling a fast one today. #AprilFools   http://cnnmon.ie/1CxAk0H

Tired of eating the same thing for dinner? This computer will invent hundreds of new #recipes  to suit your tastes, as long as you tell it what's in the fridge. #Watson , #IBM 's artificially intelligent computer system that famously beat humans in the TV quiz show Jeopardy!, has taken up cooking. The idea is simple. Users identify key ingredients and the type of dish they want, and Watson creates a recipe. #ChefWatson   http://cnnmon.ie/1MAHDwj

It's a 17-year-old kid against a $35 billion company. Los Angeles high school student Caleb Benn has developed an #app   called #Uploader   for Instagram, which is exactly what it sounds like. It allows users to upload photos to Instagram directly from their computer instead of solely from their phone, which has long been a frustration. It took Benn a weekend to build and it has been on the Apple app store for a couple weeks, where it's growing in popularity. He said it's making him $1,000 a day. (The app costs $4.99.) #Instagram  isn't a fan.http://cnnmon.ie/1MAb95p

Microsoft has given the world its first look at its new #Spartan  Web browser that will replace #InternetExplorer  in #Windows  10. The new browser is noticeably trimmer than #IE , without the sea of menu options and bells and whistles. Settings are mostly straightforward and super-slimmed down -- just the bare essentials. But the yet-to-be-named-browser-currently-called-Spartan (YTBNBCCS?) introduces a lot of new stuff that wasn't in IE. There's a lot to like.http://cnnmon.ie/1CwCFJl

JUST IN: Angie's List has halted its expansion plans in Indiana after Gov. Mike Pence passed an anti-LGBT law this week. The company was supposed to break ground on a new campus expansion within days. This means Angie's List has joined other companies just as Apple, Salesforce and Yelp in speaking out against the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which allows businesses to refuse service to homosexuals based on religious grounds. http://cnnmon.ie/19tjDZS

#Facebook  wants to help you relive the past. The social network unveiled a new feature this week that resurfaces old photos, status updates and other things users posted on Facebook. "On This Day" shows what users posted on a given day one, or two or any number of years ago. For example, if you posted pictures of your family vacation on this day in 2014, Facebook will send you an alert reminding you of how much fun you had -- or not. http://cnnmon.ie/1BmxKrB

Finding female role models in #tech  can be difficult given the sheer lack of women in the industry. Enter #Glassbreakers , a networking platform that helps facilitate relationships among female powerhouses. Think of it as a cross between #LinkedIn   -- and   #Tinder . Using a dating-app style algorithm, women are matched with other female professionals who share similar careers and interests. http://cnnmon.ie/1HDWJOe

If you want to watch the Buffalo #Bills  play the Jacksonville #Jaguars  this fall, you're going to need a decent Internet connection. For the first time in the NFL's history, the league will broadcast a live game online on Oct. 25. Unless you live in the Buffalo or Jacksonville areas, the only way to watch the game will be to stream it. The NFL has yet to name the online service that will stream the Bills-Jaguars game, but one likely suitor is #YouTube . #Google  executives met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in 2013 to discuss carrying live NFL games on YouTube, according to #NFL  spokesman Brian McCarthy. http://cnnmon.ie/1Irf7Ya
