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.

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.

How the March for Life and the Women's March value women differently

Saturday 11:44 GMT

Abortion is one more excuse to neglect and discriminate against pregnant women, because it gives women the Faustian bargain of purported equality in exchange for the life of their child.

Instead, it further entrenched that inequality by confirming that pregnant women were unwelcome in the workplace and that the ending of a human life through abortion was the only way for a pregnant woman to succeed in an unjust world.

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.

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.
