This furloughed worker found a unique way to make $2,000 a month during the shutdown

Saturday 13:34 GMT

Like many, Michael Mateos, a graphic designer and contractor for the federal government, is out of work because of the partial shutdown.

Although the artist said he’s happy to do work he loves, especially knowing it makes like-minded “Star Wars” fans happy, his hobby has also kept him from dwelling on the potential impact of a shutdown. At current prices, he could make up to $2,000 per month if he were to work most days.

Malala Yousafzai on student life, facing critics – and her political ambitions

Sunday 08:58 GMT

Yousafzai explains why she was driven to tell the stories of other displaced girls. “People have heard my story already,” says Malala Yousafzai, the youngest ever Nobel laureate, in something of an understatement. “I thought it was time for people to listen to other girls’ stories as well.”

Like a true politician, she will not be drawn on which of the prime ministers or presidents that she has met, from Gordon Brown to Barack Obama, has most im

M. Night Shyamalan's Glass is better than you've heard

Saturday 11:44 GMT

Glass is not an action movie by any stretch, but when characters fight, Shyamalan doesn't shoot the conflicts to show off elaborate choreography or special effects.

Glass may be overstuffed, but it rarely feels rushed, because Shyamalan's camera holds such a steady gaze, more interested in his characters' feelings than their physical grappling. Yet Glass' sometimes-goofy philosophizing gives the movie a distinct point of view, binding the story together even as it must divvy up screentime.

Marc Thiessen: Nancy Pelosi isn't worried about security. She's lying about the State of the Union

Saturday 11:44 GMT

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has written President Trump to suggest that he postpone his State of the Union address, citing her "security concerns" over the ability of the Secret Service and Department of Homeland Security to protect government officials during the shutdown.

Saturday 11:44 GMT

Caroline Wozniacki’s reign as Australian Open champion ended with a three-set defeat by Maria Sharapova in the third round.

Wozniacki is the highest-ranked opponent Sharapova has beaten since her first-round victory over Simona Halep at the US Open in 2017. That was her first grand slam tournament back after her 15-month doping ban and at the time seemed to be a sign of the Russian’s impending resurgence.

The Morning Ledger: U.S. Mulls Lifting China Tariffs to Advance Trade Deal

Saturday 11:44 GMT

U.S. officials are debating ratcheting back tariffs on Chinese imports as a way to calm markets and give Beijing an incentive to make deeper concessions in a trade battle that has rattled global economies, The Wall Street Journal reports.

A trade pact between the U.S. and China, if it happens, may soothe investors, and perhaps even juice economic growth—at least temporarily. At a command center near the Las Vegas airport, executives from automotive supplier Aptiv PLC showed why deploying robot cars will be far more complicated than many envisioned just a few years ago, The Wall Street Journal reports.
