Free Concert Tickets (Business)
As a result of a class action lawsuit, Ticketmaster, an entertainment, and general distribution company, known for selling concert and event tickets, has recently began giving free tickets to some customers, that used its services between 1999 and 2013, as part of the settlement. The very old case, worth hundreds of millions of dollars, was due to the original expensive prices they charged for their vouchers.

Anti-Trump Movement/ Hillary Threatened (Politics)
Played mostly for jokes on social media, the idea that Trump may not become the Republican representative is now becoming a reality that could be accomplished with some well-paced campaigns, speeches, and other tools by the hundreds of Republican delegates that now support an anti-Trump movement. Many of these delegates believe that it, in fact, is their duty as Republicans to help stave off their concerns that Trump is not only horribly misrepresenting the Republican party a s whole, as well as, conservatives and right-wingers with racist/sexist proposals, extreme ideas, and many an embarrassing news story revolving around these issues. Leaders of the movement claim that this will likely stir up many headlines surrounding chaos within the ranks of the system, but that in the long run, it will help win back the votes of the non-extremist conservatives and will greatly increase the chance of gaining a seat in the white house. *meanwhile, in the Democratic Party* Elizabeth Warren is a politician from Massachusetts, and boy oh boy, is she important in a choice that Secretary Clinton will need to make. Hillary Clinton has been under fire from Wall Street which itself is out to get her. Many interviews with Wall Street Democrats revealed that, should she pick Elizabeth Warren as her running mate, the entirety of her campaign funding could be removed. Why? Well, Warren wants to destroy American banks that keep sucking money way from the government, ands naturally, this century old industry isn’t quite ready to die yet. Do you blame them? They are also in belief that should Hillary win, with Warren by her side, this will make it worlds harder for them to influence the government, or get any funding from the government in any way, as Hillary would be able to work with congress and will likely be able to pass massive tax reforms and infrastructure development across the nation, making cutting deals with the senate harder on their now limited budget. However, Clinton and Warren have a bit of a history with each other, making it unlikely that they will work together to begin with. Only time will tell as to whether these two will meet up or not.

Fastest Computer? (Technology)
The University of California-Davis has just recently developed a processor for computers with more than a thousand cores! According to their knowledge, the best processor chips currently available have only about 300 cores, so this beast naturally looks pretty good. It is probably not going to see time in the retail space for years, so you’ll have to stick with your i5’s and Zeon’s for now until these hit the marketspace. However, if you’re rich and can afford the extravagant cost, you could probably get your hands on one for your own personal supercomputer, which sadly, many cannot afford.(PC Magazine)
