CNN reported late afternoon Thursday that after Rudy Giuliani’s associates were arrested, the former New York City Mayor’s finances are now under scrutiny.
Reporter Shimon Prokupecz explained that Igor Furman and Lev Parnas have a relationship with Giuliani that is coming under the investigative eye of the FBI and federal investigators.
Rudy Giuliani’s financial dealings with two associates indicted on campaign finance-related charges are under scrutiny by investigators overseeing the case, law enforcement officials briefed on the matter said.

“Of course, the Ukraine matter in the mind of a lot of the federal investigators and prosecutors and they want to know what this relationship was about,” said Prokupecz. “Perhaps they’re looking at the money. Who was funding some of this? Was Rudy Giuliani in any way making money off of this? Financial dealings are one of the things that the FBI and prosecutors are looking at, as well as the overall relationship here.”

NPR is still expanding the range of what authority sounds like after 50 years
From its start half a century ago, National Public Radio heralded a new approach to the sound of radio in the United States.
NPR “would speak with many voices and many dialects,” according to “Purposes,” its founding document.
Written in 1970, this blueprint rang with emotional immediacy. NPR would go on the air for the first time a year later, on April 20, 1971.
NPR is sometimes mocked, perhaps most memorably in a 1998 “Saturday Night Live” sketch starring actor Alec Baldwin, for its staid sound production and its hosts’ carefully modulated vocal quality. But the nonprofit network’s commitment to including “many voices” hatched a small sonic revolution on the airwaves.

"People are flushing toilets ten times, fifteen times -- as opposed to once," Trump claimed while arguing against water conservation efficiency standards.

Edward Snowden: If I came back to the US, I would likely die in prison for telling the truth
At Wednesday’s The Right Livelihood Awards, Amy Goodman interviewed Snowden in front of the award ceremony’s live audience via video link from Moscow.
The Right Livelihood Awards celebrated their 40th anniversary Wednesday at the historic Cirkus Arena in Stockholm, Sweden, where more than a thousand people gathered to celebrate this year’s four laureates: Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg; Chinese women’s rights lawyer Guo Jianmei, Brazilian indigenous leader Davi Kopenawa and the organization he co-founded, the Yanomami Hutukara Association; and Sahrawi human rights leader Aminatou Haidar, who has challenged the Moroccan occupation of Western Sahara for decades. The Right Livelihood Award is known as the “Alternative Nobel Prize.”
