#2 How these new apps are helping citizens solve their own petty crimes

76.2% of abducted children who were murdered in the US were found dead within the first four hours.

It’s a terrifying statistic I recently learned listening to the podcast In the Dark, about the kidnapping and murder of 11-year old Jacob Wetterling in 1989.

In those first four hours, cars could have driven hundreds of miles, traces could have been erased, and bodies could have been buried.

It’s a no-brainer, of course: The sooner an investigation starts, the better the chances the perpetrator gets caught. This is true for missing person cases and for every other type of crime. And in a perfect world, the police would show up within minutes after every robbery or bike theft.

But we don’t live in a perfect world and police resources are limited. Which is why we need to tap into a mostly unused source to increase crime solving rates: the public.

#3 NATO Survives Trump, but the Turmoil Is Leaving Scars

BRUSSELS — NATO, a pillar of the global order, emerged from a two-day confrontation with President Trump on Thursday intact but distracted and shaken, a further challenge to the alliance as it faces an expansionist Russia and growing authoritarianism among some of its own members.

Wrapping up talks with fellow leaders of the 29-nation trans-Atlantic alliance, Mr. Trump reaffirmed support for NATO, but only after stirring more discord with a vague threat that the United States could go its own way if the allies resisted his demands for additional military spending, capping a summit meeting punctuated by his escalating complaints.

Hours later, after landing in Britain, the assault on diplomatic norms continued. In an interview with the newspaper The Sun, published late Thursday, he undercut Prime Minister Theresa May on several fronts on her own turf.

#4 Chrome has a new way to keep Spectre hackers at bay

Google's Chrome browser logo

By adding new compartmentalization technology, Google's Chrome browser has taken a step to keep websites from stealing sensitive data.

Since Google first released it publicly in 2008, Chrome has divided work among multiple computing processes. That approach helps keep one tab's work from interfering with what's happening in another. Google has been testing a stricter variation of this sort of partitioning to protect against Spectre, a new type of attack that Google and other researchers revealed in January.

Google released the new security feature, called site isolation, to a limited number of Chrome users starting with the Chrome 67 release in May. Now it's "enabled for 99 percent of users on Windows, Mac, Linux and Chrome OS," Chrome team member Charlie Reis said in a blog post on Wednesday.

The move shows just how complicated Spectre and the related Meltdown attacks are to thwart. Tech companies that make processors, operating systems and browsers all scrambled to block attackers from using the vulnerabilities to snatch sensitive data like passwords or encryption keys. The problem is severe enough to have risen to the US Congress, where senators griped on Wednesday that they hadn't heard about Spectre sooner.

Google's site isolation feature is a major change to Chrome. It affects a core part of the browser called the renderer, which turns website programming code into actual pixels on your phone or laptop screen. With site isolation, Chrome splits renderers into separate computing processes more often to wall off data better.

#5 Fifth boy brought out of Thai cave on second day of rescue, official says

Video from Associated Press

Rescue workers in Thailand brought out on Monday the fifth boy from a group of 12 and their soccer coach trapped for more than two weeks in a flooded cave complex, a navy official said, hours after the rescue mission resumed.

A Reuters witness near the Tham Luang cave in the northern province of Chiang Rai saw medical personnel carrying a person, wrapped in green sheets and lying flat, into an ambulance close to the mouth of the cave.

"Yes, one has come out already," a navy official told Reuters. He declined to give any details.

The "Wild Boars" soccer team and their coach got trapped on June 23 when they set out to explore the vast cave complex after soccer practice, when a rainy season downpour drenched the area and flooded the tunnels.

#6 Trump to Name Supreme Court Nominee: What to Watch

• President Trump is set to announce his Supreme Court nominee to replace the retiring Justice Anthony M. Kennedy at 9 p.m. Monday.

• Mr. Trump is deciding among four finalists, all federal appellate judges: Amy Coney Barrett of the Seventh Circuit, Brett M. Kavanaugh of the District of Columbia Circuit, Raymond M. Kethledge of the Sixth Circuit and Thomas M. Hardiman of the Third Circuit. All four were on a list of 25 candidates the White House compiled with input from the conservative Federalist Society and Heritage Foundation.

• Mr. Trump considers the pick a key moment of his presidency, and was pushing his decision into the final hours before his self-imposed Monday night announcement deadline.

#7 David Davis resigns as Brexit Secretary

Theresa May is today pleading for Labour MPs to help force through her 'stinker' Brexit plan in the wake of David Davis's dramatic resignation.

The Prime Minister has drafted Dominic Raab into Cabinet replace Mr Davis as she tries to quell as a massive backlash from Eurosceptics that threatens to sweep her out of Downing Street.

But the Tory wrath has been inflamed further after it emerged that Mrs May's chief of staff Gavin Barwell is briefing Opposition MPs in a bid to win them over to her 'third way' proposals for future trade with the EU. 

Brexiteers warned that the premier will not survive if she can only enforce her will with 'socialist' votes - amid calls for Boris Johnson to take up cudgels by following Mr Davis out of the door.

In a devastating verdict on the plans, which Mrs May forced through Cabinet on Friday night, Mr Davis complained that she had persistently undermined him and put the UK on track to be humbled by Brussels.

#8 Mitch McConnell Confronted By Protesters Asking: ‘Where Are The Babies?’

For the second time in as many weeks, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) was challenged Saturday by protesters who confronted him over the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance border policy.

McConnell was leaving a Louisville restaurant after having lunch with Jonathan Shell, the outgoing majority leader of Kentucky’s House of Representatives, when he was approached by a group of demonstrators, reported the Courier-Journal.

As shown in a video recording below of the encounter, the protesters chanted “Vote you out” and “Abolish ICE,” referring to the controversial Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.  

One man is heard asking McConnell: “Where are the babies, Mitch?” — an apparent reference to the migrant children who have yet to be reunited with their families despite President Donald Trump’s executive order last month ordering an end to family separations among undocumented immigrants at the U.S.-Mexico border.

The senator did not appear to acknowledge the protesters.
