"Five of the world’s top banks will pay over $5 billion in fines after pleading guilty to rigging the price of foreign currencies and interest rates. Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, Barclays and Royal Bank of Scotland pleaded guilty to conspiring to manipulate the price of U.S. dollars and euros exchanged in the $5 trillion FX spot market. UBS pleaded guilty for its role in manipulating the Libor benchmark interest rate. No individual bank employees were hit with criminal charges as part of the settlements."

"In Congress, Democrats and Republicans are trying to attach an anti-boycott bill to a mega-trade deal involving Europe and the U.S. In Tennessee and Indiana, state officials have passed a resolution criticizing the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement as anti-Semitic. And in Illinois, state legislators look set to approve an anti-BDS law requiring state pensions to divest funds from companies that boycott or divest from Israel."

It's happening in Canada, too:

A crop of bills and resolutions in Congress and state legislatures are targeting the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement. Some are mere resolutions expressing an opinion, while others ...

Shocking study reveals the obvious.
 
A new U.K. study finds that cellphone bans in schools can have the same effect on test scores as adding a week of instructional time.

"A helicopter circled overhead, spraying a fine mist of toxic weed killers. Darryl Ivy took refuge inside his pickup: Windows up, doors shut. The scene was captured on camera, one of more than 200 videos Ivy recorded on his smartphone. Again and again, herbicides rained down. The milky chemical mix stained Ivy's windshield white and turned his phlegm red."

Troubled by what he saw, a truck driver on a spray crew documented his working conditions and provided hours of videos to The Oregonian/OregonLive.

“Repeated violations of our Terms of Service may result in remedial action being taken against your Google Fiber account, up to and including possible termination of your service,” Google Fiber writes.
Google Fiber is forwarding copyright infringement notices to its subscribers including controversial and automated piracy fines. Through these notices, rightsholders demand settlements of up to hundreds of dollars. Google's decision to forward these emails is surprising, as the company generally has a good track record of protecting consumer interests.

“For centuries, the human race has dreamed of universal access to clean, safe drinking water. It's a human right, not a product.
Sure, you're boycotting Nestle for draining California's drought-stricken aquifers for bottled water, but why stop there?

This is not about Hillary’s message. Corporations and banks bribe the Clintons to buy political favors. The speaking racket is a (flimsy) cover. Like, there’s the time Goldman Sachs paid $200,000 for a Bill Talk a few months before the financial conglomerate lobbied Hill when she was secretary of state. At least 13 companies paid Bill and Hill at least $2.5 million in similar sleazy deals. Those are just the brazen quid pro quo deals.
 
Bill and Hillary Clinton “earned” — can a mortal earn such stratospheric sums? — “at least $30 million over the last 16 months, mainly from giving paid speeches to corporations, banks and other organizations,” The New York Times reports. “They have now earned more than $125 million on the [lecture] circuit since leaving the White […]

The D's talking points seem to be "but everyone else is doing it" and "no one has proven Bill or Hill have done anything illegal".   If a candidate is  taking the money from corporations that are part of the problem, then the candidate is part of the problem too.
