On ?CBS Sunday Morning,? the veteran newsman told Hannity that the audience he attracts is unable to distinguish between the divisive political rhetoric that marked the 2016 presidential campaign and the truth. ?You have attracted people who are determined that ideology is more important than facts,?

  • Ahmed Kathrada, anti-apartheid activist and Mandela prison mate
    March 27, 2017, 11:50 pm

    South Africa's anti-apartheid icon Ahmed Kathrada, who was jailed alongside Nelson Mandela, was feted as a humble liberation hero who shunned the power and glory that came with freedom. Unlike many struggle veterans, Kathrada, who was imprisoned on Robben Island, never held public political office after the fall of apartheid and Mandela's election as president in 1994. When Mandela left office in 1999, after serving a single four-year term, Kathrada also stepped away from politics -- immersing himself in activism through his Ahmed Kathrada Foundation.

  • Pakistan says starts fencing Afghanistan border in 'high-threat zones'
    March 27, 2017, 12:00 am

    Pakistan has begun building a fence on its disputed 2,500 km (1,500 mile) border with Afghanistan to prevent incursions by militants, Pakistan's army chief said, in a move likely to further strain relations between the two countries. Pakistan has blamed Pakistani Taliban militants it says are based on Afghan soil for a spate of attacks at home in recent months, urging Kabul to eradicate "sanctuaries" for militants. Citing the attacks, Islamabad earlier this month temporarily shut the main crossing points along the colonial-era Durand Line border, drawn up in 1893 and rejected by Afghanistan.

  • There?s a compelling new reason to buy your iPhone from T-Mobile
    March 27, 2017, 3:22 pm

    Choosing where to buy a new iPhone isn't as simple as it might seem. Third-party stores or carriers might give you a better monetary deal than buying an iPhone from the Apple Store, but you're also going to have to deal with yearly contracts, bill credits, or the hassle of unlocking the device if you switch networks.

    But all the details aside, T-Mobile is hoping that its latest offering can make the decision much simpler. As of right now, if you buy an iPhone on T-Mobile and opt for extra device insurance, you'll also get AppleCare included in the price.

    The AppleCare isn't free with all new iPhones from T-Mobile, but rather it's an additional service you get with T-Mobile's Premium Device Protection. That's just an insurance program that T-Mobile offers on devices. It runs $12 per month, and offers theft and loss protection on your phone. It's a good option if you're prone to losing your device altogether, but the deductibles are high, and it doesn't offer much help with common problems like a cracked screen or water damage (thanks to those high deductibles).

    So T-Mobile's new offering bundles the normal insurance, offered by Assurant, with the Apple-provided AppleCare that you know and love. Assurant keeps covering theft and loss, while AppleCare gets you different benefits like live support, cheap screens, and battery repairs.

    For anyone who was already on T-Mobile's insurance, or thinking about buying a phone protected by it, this is obviously good news. You're getting more coverage for the same amount of money, and knowing it's Apple-provided coverage means you're not going to have to spend weeks arguing with a weird third-party insurance company.
