Pentagon Begins Trump's Syria Withdrawal With Timeline Uncertain
Pentagon Begins Trump's Syria Withdrawal With Timeline Uncertain

U.S. troops aren't yet being withdrawn from Syria but equipment is, according to a Pentagon official who asked not to be identified. The U.K.-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which closely tracks developments in the civil war, said the withdrawal began on Thursday, with a convoy of about 10 armored vehicles and some trucks moving out of Rmeilan in Syria and relocating to Iraq. The administration's strategy toward Syria has appeared muddled since Trump's abrupt announcement last month of a U.S. exit, a statement that included no details but sparked the resignation of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and the top American envoy to the global coalition to defeat Islamic State.

Donald Trump's sweet treats fail to convince Democrats as wall meeting ends in acrimony

Donald Trump was on Thursday heading to the border with Mexico to step up pressure on funding for the wall after his latest efforts to end the government shutdown ended in further acrimony. Mr Trump handed out sweets to leading Democrats as he sought their support for the wall in a meeting in the White House on Wednesday night, but the president allegedly flew into a "tantrum", slamming the table and walking out when opposition leaders refused his demands. Mr Trump tweeted shortly after that the meeting was a "total waste of time". He added: "I asked what is going to happen in 30 days if I quickly open things up, are you going to approve Border Security which...

Tesla
Tesla's Model 3 was the top-selling luxury vehicle in 2018

Without question, 2018 was a watershed year for Tesla. Despite the ongoing antics of Elon Musk and his entanglements with the SEC, Tesla in 2018 finally managed to turn a quarterly profit for the first time in company history. What's more, Tesla in a press release a few days ago revealed that the company almost delivered more vehicles in 2018 (245,240 to be exact) than it did "in all prior years combined." Of course, Tesla's Model 3 played an instrumental role in helping the company reach new milestones over the past 12 months. And speaking to the ongoing popularity of Tesla's mass market EV, the Model 3 was actually the best-selling luxury vehicle across both cars and SUVs in...
