Trump Turns an Iowa Rally Into a Venting Session

The rally, Mr. Trump’s first since the end of April, served as a venting session for a pent-up president who has stewed and brooded from inside the gilded cage of the White House over attacks from investigators, Democrats and the news media, his interview schedule drastically pared down and his aides imploring him to stay off Twitter.Continue reading the main storyStyle-heavy and substance-light, the speech went over an hour: an epic version of the fact-challenged, meandering and, even for his detractors, mesmerizing speeches he gave during his upstart presidential campaign.Mr. Trump gave few details about his plan for the solar panels, beyond that it creates “energy and pays for itself,” or about his coming proposal to greatly curtail welfare for new immigrants — including how it would differ from existing laws that do just that. He called it a “total rewrite of our immigration system into a merit-based system,” words consistent with the public tone he has struck on immigration restrictions.The president, whose approval rating is mired below 40 percent, told the crowd of roughly 6,000 people at the U.S. […]

U.S. Pressed to Pursue Deal to Freeze North Korea Missile Tests

But like his predecessors, Mr. Trump is gradually learning that for all its talk about cooperation, China is deeply reluctant to take any measures that could seriously destabilize the North Korean government, for fear the country might collapse or be absorbed by the South.Continue reading the main storySo China’s strategy has been to buy time — and preserve the status quo — with talks that may be linked to some kind of testing freeze. They may now have a new advocate of that approach, President Moon Jae-in of South Korea, who was elected on a platform pledging resumed engagement with the North. On Tuesday, he embraced a similar idea, telling Norah O’Donnell of CBS News in an interview that a freeze could be a way station to a second phase of talks that would “achieve the complete dismantling of North Korea’s nuclear program.”In an interview broadcast on Wednesday, the North Korean ambassador to India, Kye Chun-yong, said his country was willing to consider a moratorium on nuclear and ballistic missile tests if the United States and South Korea stopped their annual joint military exercises.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyGet the Morning Briefing by EmailWhat you need to know to start your day, delivered to your inbox Monday through Friday.Thank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

Abortion Adds Obstacle as Republicans Plan to Unveil Health Bill

The changes being considered in Congress could “amount to a 25 percent shortfall in covering the actual cost of providing care to our nation’s neediest citizens,” the top executives of 10 insurance companies wrote this week. “These amounts spell deep cuts, not state flexibilities, in Medicaid.”Continue reading the main storyAs senators struggle to develop a health care bill, their handiwork appears to be too moderate for some Senate conservatives and too conservative for some Senate moderates. The latest version, without the abortion-coverage prohibition and with steep Medicaid cuts, may prove unacceptable to some in both camps. To pass it, Senate leaders can afford to lose only two Republican votes of the 52 in the chamber.Republican senators got a glimpse Wednesday of the highlights of the bill, which was drafted in secret by the majority leader, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, and top aides. White House officials were granted a formal briefing, which risked irking many senators who had yet to see the actual bill.The House abortion provision has sweeping implications because many health plans subsidized under the Affordable Care Act include coverage for abortion services. The provision has encountered outspoken opposition from officials in states like Oregon, where most health plans on the public insurance exchange cover abortion.But senators said the provision might have to be dropped for a more prosaic reason: It may not comply with the Senate rules that Republicans are using to speed the health care bill through the Senate.The bill is scheduled to go to the Senate floor next week under these procedures, which limit debate and preclude a Democratic filibuster.“It’s one of the problems we have to work with,” Senator Orrin G. Hatch, Republican of Utah and the chairman of the Finance Committee, said of the abortion issue. “We’re not quite sure how that’s going to be resolved.”Mr. McConnell is determined to get a vote on the bill by the end of next week, before a break for the Fourth of July holiday, but he still does not have enough committed votes to ensure passage.Senator Rand Paul, Republican of Kentucky, made clear on Wednesday that he was not on board with the Republican bill.Continue reading the main story“I’m still hoping we reach impasse, and we actually go back to the idea we originally started with, which is repealing Obamacare,” Mr […]

Here’s Everything Microsoft Just Announced at the Xbox E3 Show

Bathed in electric green lights, enthralled by the staccato thump of shock-and-awe music, attendees at The Galen Center listened Sunday to Microsoft executives pitch the next phase in the Xbox’s journey—from what in 2013 began as a controversial motion-controlled, next-gen media hub, to today’s rededication as a gaming-foremost, super-powered 4K graphical monster. The Most Powerful Game Console Ever Meet Xbox One X, the official name for Microsoft’s souped up Xbox One, formerly codenamed “Project Scorpio.” It boasts 6 teraflops of GPU compute power, 12 gigabytes of DDR5 memory, and games capable of running at native 4K resolutions, which is all just to say that it’s going to be a pixel-crunching beast. “There is no power greater than X,” said Xbox honcho Phil Spencer. “It’s the most powerful console ever made.” And yes, also rather pricey: $499, or $100 more than Sony’s own 4K-angled box, the PlayStation 4 Pro, which debuted last November. But if the battle in the 4K graphics space is currently about chasing enthusiast wallets, Microsoft is positioning Xbox One X as a box that justifies the extra outlay with raw specs capable of delivering much more than Sony’s product to videophiles and 4K connoisseurs. If the narrative around the Xbox One and PlayStation 4’s debut in 2013 centered on the PlayStation 4’s superior specs, today’s show was Microsoft taking the ball back. Xbox One X will also make existing Xbox One games look better and load faster, uses a liquid-cooled vapor chamber to tame its doubtless nutty thermals (a first for a console) and still somehow winds up being the smallest Xbox console the company’s made, including the Xbox One S. The Xbox One X will be available on November 7, worldwide. Forza Motorsport 7 Looks Sick How to show off all that power? With the world premiere of Forza Motorsport 7, a supercar extravaganza for Xbox One and Windows 10 that takes all the things we’ve come to expect from high-end racers—gorgeous cloudscapes, crisp terrain, dynamic weather like thunderheads rolling in and water beading on windshields—and kicks it up a whole lot more than a notch. Players can rip through 30 “famous” areas with dynamic race conditions and collect more than 700 cars, including the 2018 Porsche 911 GTS RS. The game runs at native 4K and 60 frames per second on Xbox One X, and ships for Xbox One and Windows 10 on October 3. (The Xbox One X version will be available when that console ships on November 7.) Assassin’s Creed Origins Premiere Though not console-exclusive, Ubisoft’s long-awaited return to the Assassin’s Creed-verse looked pretty slick during the show’s world premiere gameplay demo. As rumored, the game will take place in ancient Egypt. It involves the story of a sort of Egyptian sheriff attempting to protect his community, a struggle out of which the company says will emerge the tale of the birth of the brotherhood of assassins. Climb pyramids, fight in coliseums, gallop through dusty palm-treed lands, command birds to surveil and track enemies, fire weapons in slow-motion while mid-leap and engage an enormous open world that’s been fine-tuned to resemble more a roleplaying than traditional action-adventure game. It’s available October 27. Minecraft Platform Interoperability The promise of a master version of studio Mojang’s sandbox builder, identical across all platforms, not just functionally but at the codebase level, is finally happening. With what Microsoft calls the “Better Together Update,” the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One versions of Minecraft will converge with the Windows 10, Virtual Reality and mobile versions. All will hence run the C++ version, or what creator Mojang and Microsoft have taken to calling the “bedrock engine.” What’s more, Microsoft teased something it’s calling the “Super Duper Graphics Pack,” a graphical update coming this fall that will include overhauled textures and lighting (including support for high dynamic range) for what amounts to an official vamp on the kinds of user mods that have made such things possible in the Java PC version for years. Crackdown 3 Looks Nuts Today’s “best opener of the show” award goes to Terry Crews as Commander Jaxon. Brash and bombastic, the Crackdown 3 sizzle reel was too confusing to make much sense of. But this four-player campaign cooperative sandbox smack-around will be central to the Xbox One X’s launch lineup when it arrives on November 7. BioWare’s Gorgeous New Open-World Game BioWare’s new “shared world” action roleplaying game, Anthem, has players (dubbed “freelancers”) exploring a massive open world while donning exosuits dubbed “Javelins,” differentiated by their abilities. In the demo, a player flew Superman-style through a lush jungle, encountering dynamic enemies, diving underwater and boosting around, then reemerging to tango with further indigenous hostiles. The game, which appears to blend elements of Destiny and Titanfall, supports up to four people playing together in squadrons. Look for it fall 2018. 42 games, 22 of those Xbox One exclusives The press conference included a barrage of world premieres, including a mix of both platform and launch (meaning temporarily) exclusives. We learned of Metro: Exodus‘s existence, another post-apocalyptic open-world shooter from series developer 4A Games that’s coming in 2018, and Life is Strange: Before the Storm, a three-part adventure that takes place before the BAFTA-winning original. Online tactical survival romp PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, released in March for PCs, is coming to Xbox One. Deep Rock Galactic, a co-op first-person shooter with procedurally generated levels starring “badass space dwarves,” looked like Overwatch meets Minecraft (launch exclusive). There was State of Decay 2, another zombie invasion survival game (exclusive to Xbox One and Windows 10), and The Darwin Project, an arena-style survivalism game (launch exclusive). The Last Night‘s lovely animated 2D cyberpunk vistas was evocative of Flashback (launch exclusive). Rare offered another look at Sea of Thieves, its shared-world pirate plunderer (Xbox One and Windows 10 exclusive). There’s a new “Ori” game in the works, dubbed Ori and the Will of the Wisps, that’s exclusive to Windows 10 and Xbox One. And Cuphead, Studio MDHR’s long-awaited retro-cartoon-side-scroller that’s exclusive to Xbox One and Windows, is finally going to be playable September 29. I’m missing a bunch of others here, like Super Lucky’s Tale, The Artful Escape of Francis Vendetti, CodeVein and Ashen, but then it was a show designed in part to impress by deluging. Original Xbox Games Are Coming, Too Microsoft’s claims about the popularity of backward compatibility are a bit vague, but it’s hard to imagine the company wasting time and money getting nearly 400 Xbox 360 games to work with the Xbox One without a solid business case. And it’s even harder to imagine today’s revelation–that original Xbox games are in the offing (they’ll look and play better, said Microsoft)–if the economics, to say nothing of the goodwill this sort of move engenders among fans, weren’t solid enough. Microsoft’s View of the Immediate Future All this said, the presser’s montage of verdant other-worlds and collapsed civilizations felt a bit skewed toward brutality and bleakness. Microsoft’s view of gaming circa 2017 clearly privileges platform exclusivity and visual muscularity, but also games whose central tenets involve smacking things around and general dollops of thematic sound and furiousness. For Xbox, gaming’s future looks like much of its past, wherein players thrash, shoot and brutally skewer stuff. Some of this is doubtless the marketing need to cast Xbox One X in its most rambunctious light, but there was a sense of conceptual blur about the roundup that I worry fuels the (deeply mistaken) narrative that games are just boisterous toys for power fantasists.

Here’s What ‘Star Wars: Battlefront 2’ Gameplay Looks Like

Stormtroopers, clone troopers, gorgeous shots of lush Naboo and all those silly comic relief droids—it’s a veritable Star Wars-ian mashup in this first official gameplay trailer for studio EA DICE’s galaxy far, far away sequel to 2015’s online shooter. Star Wars: Battlefront 2 wants to have it all: Here’s a wookie fighting with the Empire. There’s Boba Fett shooting whatever he shoots from those lovely arm cannons. Check out the Millennium Falcon cleaving through asteroid debris like a scythe, or those Separatist droid armies throwing down against hordes of clone troopers. How about the little green guy himself, looking properly peeved as he tangoes with Darth Maul. And there’s Rey, trading blows with Kylo Ren in what promises to be an experience that scales from individual skirmishes to platoon-sized assaults on up to explosive battalion-ish interstellar clashes. The idea behind Star Wars: Battlefront 2, besides taking your money, is to shore up the 30-year span between Return of the Jedi‘s rebel triumph and The Force Awakens‘ grimmer tidings. It is also fully canon, which means what happens here happened as precursor to the films. As such, you would do well to keep watching past the trailer’s logo splash, for one of the creepiest teases in the history of the Star Wars-verse. […]

Trump friend and climate foe Sam Clovis is up for a big job at the USDA.

The National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environmental Management Authority mentioned the leak in an annual report on offshore exploration but revealed no details about who operated the well.

That information came to light on Friday, when Woodside Petroleum — Australia’s largest oil and gas producer, owned by Royal Dutch Shell — admitted to owning the well on the North West Shelf of the country. The leak began in April 2016 and lasted about two months. All told, it spilled nearly 2,800 gallons of oil into the ocean.

Woodside gave a statement to the Australian Broadcasting Company claiming the spill caused no damage: “Due to the composition of the fluid, small quantity released, water depth at release site, and distance from environmentally sensitive areas, there was no lasting impact to the environment.”

Offshore oil safety expert Andrew Hopkins told the Guardian that the Australian regulator’s failure to identify who was responsible for the spill is concerning, as it spares reckless firms from justice via “naming and shaming.”

“Companies that know they will be named in the case of an incident like this,” Hopkins said, “are going to be less likely to do it.”
