North Korea's foreign minister is set to meet again with his Swedish counterpart amid growing speculation about a possible meeting in the Scandinavian country between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Hoping to capitalize on the popularity of trivia applications like HQ Trivia, dating app maker Zoosk has just released an experimental app that combines trivia with the potential for meeting someone new. The app is a relaunch and complete makeover of Zoosk’s Lively, which first debuted in July 2016 as a dating app that used video to tell stories, instead of static profile images. The new version of Lively is nothing like its former namesake. As Zoosk explains, the previous version of Lively’s group video chat app was fun, but people didn’t know how to connect and relate to one another using the video format. It felt awkward to start conversations, with no reason to be there besides wanting to date. The company went back to the drawing board, so to speak, to think about ...
SEATTLE (Reuters) - The top U.S. railways regulator plans to hold a series of meetings with disgruntled shippers and other customers starting next month, after fresh complaints over service delays and higher costs from automotive and grain lobby groups.
Sinar Project is an NGO that aims to collect a database of political information in Malaysia, and provide an open source code for anyone looking to do the same. It began when a leaked parliament bill was stopped thanks to public action. This made the founders realise the importance of Malaysians taking an educated stand in their own politics. However, the NGO is dogged by problems with funding, and a lack of interest in similar projects in Malaysia. With all the news about the upcoming elections, you may have seen a project to build a GE14 website that aims to display as much information as possible about candidates that are running in the upcoming elections. The idea is for the rakyat to see exactly which politicians aren’t transparent about their qualifications or assets, or t
Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entrekin has just been outed for scooping up at least $750,000 in federal, state and municipal funds intended to feed inmates for personal use. Is he panicking? Hiring a lawyer? No, like other Alabama sheriffs, he’s arguing it’s perfectly legal. "The law says it's a personal account and that's the way I've always done it and that's the way the law reads and that's the way I do business," [Entrekin] said in a phone interview Friday. "That's the way the law's written." The sheriffs’ interpretation isn’t just dubious, it’s outright incorrect. It’s been rejected by Alabama legal authorities, and now it’s sparked an investigation by the Southern Center for Human Rights and the Alabama Appleseed Center for Law and Justice. Many sheriffs in Alabama contend that a

For many, the weeks leading up to their wedding are packed with stress. Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd don’t seem to be having that problem. The country couple is just a week and a half away from their big day, but are shaking things up even more by bringing a new puppy into their family. Hurd, 31, and Morris, 27, both posted about the new arrival on Instagram, introducing the world to their precious bulldog pup Pancake, who they received from fellow country musician Jon Pardi‘s mother. RELATED: Maren Morris Says Tequila — and ‘Excellent Fiancé’ Ryan Hurd — Are Her Wedding Must-Haves Roly-poly Pancake joins the couple’s other canine, a white German shepherd named June.

A few weeks back, the Kansas City Star published excerpts from a December speech, made by Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley (R), in which he blamed human trafficking on the sexual revolution of the 1960s. His dubious take on history, made at a Missouri Renewal Project event featuring a who’s who of theocrats, Islamophobes, and anti-LGBTQ extremists, became national news because Hawley is currently the frontrunner for the GOP nomination to take on Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill this November. Many of Hawley’s conservative views — opposing abortion access, marriage equality, “amnesty” for undocumented immigrants, the right of consumers to sue, defending the “right” of government officials like Kim Davis to discriminate, and the “climate change crusade” — are in line his par
Howdy. My name is Page (not a typo, there’s no i) and I’m the new kid on the block at the ‘Peg. I’m a social media specialist, which is a fancy title for “the poor soul that reads the comments,” and a member of the content team! Not Sooner born, but Sooner bred I was born in New Hampshire and lived there for barely two years before being whisked off to where I would call home for most of my life: Oklahoma. I grew up in a one-horse town where the primary eatery was Sonic and my graduating high school class only had 130 people in it. After high school I went to the University of Oklahoma, which boasts the highest number of National Merit Scholars in the country; I was not one of them. I started out with a major in marketing until I found out OU requires three semesters of calculus to
