    Jeb Bush's love of Apple products has been widely documented, and the Republican presidential candidate continues to wear his Apple Watch on the campaign trail.

Somehow Bush managed to take a call without picking up his iPhone, and the sound of a person’s voice saying hello breaks through the meeting noise, to which Bush responds, “My watch can’t be talking.”

  • 10/27   Iraq protests swell with youth angry at slow pace of reform
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Iraqi youth angry at their government's glacial pace of reform ramped up their protests on Sunday, sealing streets with burning tyres and threatening further escalation unless their demands are met.  The rallies demanding an overhaul of the ruling system have rocked Shiite-majority parts of Iraq since October, but had thinned out in recent weeks amid rising Iran-US tensions.  Protesters had feared Iraq would be caught in the middle of the geopolitical storm and last Monday gave the government one week to make progress on reform pledges.

  • 11/27   Libya’s Oil Output Grinds to Halt as Berlin Peace Talks Conclude
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- Sign up here to receive the Davos Diary, a special daily newsletter that will run from Jan. 20-24.Libya’s biggest oil field began to halt production after armed forces shut down a pipeline, compounding supply disruptions that are continuing after a conference that aimed to broker an end to the OPEC nation’s civil war concluded in Berlin. The country’s oil production will be limited to 72,000 barrels per day once its storage tanks are full, according to a spokesman for the National Oil Corporation, down from more than 1.2 million barrels per day on Saturday. That’s the lowest level since August 2011, data compiled by Bloomberg show.The remaining production will come from offshore fields and the Wafa oil field. The Sharara field, which can pump 300,000 barrels a day, will stop producing once its tanks are full, a person familiar with the situation said. The output plunge started when an eastern military commander, Khalifa Haftar, blocked exports at ports under his control, according to a statement on Saturday from the state-run National Oil Corp. The NOC declared force majeure, which can allow Libya -- home to Africa’s largest-proven oil reserves -- to legally suspend delivery contracts.Members of the Petroleum Facilities Guard under the command of Haftar’s Libyan National Army shut down the Hamada-Zawiya oil pipeline, forcing the NOC to limit oil production at the Sharara and El Feel fields, according to an NOC statement. The Hamada station hosts pipelines for Mellitah Oil Co. and Akakus, the operators at El Feel and Sharara respectively, it said.“This is a policy-related disruption,” said Edward Bell, director of commodity research at Dubai-based bank Emirates NBD PJSC. “There could be a pretty quick turnaround if there’s a political solution.”Crude PricesCrude prices will probably jump in trading on Monday, but not by as much as they did after the Sept. 14 attacks on Saudi Arabian oil facilities, Bell said. Libya has less production at stake than Saudi Arabia, and its difficulties are more contained than the Saudi crisis, which threatened to escalate into a regional war, he said. Brent crude rose 23 cents on Friday to end the week at $64.85 a barrel.Haftar’s show of force comes as he prepares to attend an international conference in Berlin on Sunday hosted by German Chancellor Angela Merkel where the general will face pressure to agree to a cease-fire. Haftar, whose troops have been bogged down in the southern suburbs of the capital of Tripoli, has so far refused efforts to end his offensive and agree to a compromise.By shutting down oil fields, Haftar is denying a key source of revenue to the internationally recognized government of Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj. Funds from oil production go to the country’s central bank, and the Tripoli government has them money to buy weapons for its defense.Russian mercenaries have supported Haftar’s forces, according to officials who told Bloomberg. Egypt and the United Arab Emirates are also backing Haftar. Turkish soldiers are training forces loyal to Sarraj, and Turkish-backed Syrian rebels have also joined the fray.(Updates with oil porudction figures in the second paragraph.)\--With assistance from Verity Ratcliffe.To contact the reporter on this story: Salma El Wardany in Cairo at selwardany@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Nayla Razzouk at nrazzouk2@bloomberg.net, Matthew G.

    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    SpaceX demonstrated a safety system that will protect astronauts in the case of any unfortunate unforeseen accidents in future Crew Dragon flights, which included the spacecraft splashing down in the Atlantic Ocean, but during a post-mission press conference SpaceX CEO Elon Musk suggested future return trips for the human-rated spacecraft could look very different.  Musk suggested that SpaceX could eventually seek to recover the Crew Dragon capsule using ships at sea that 'catch' the spacecraft as it lands, rather than allowing it to splash down and recovering it from the water.  SpaceX is in the process of testing a similar system to recover the fairings (large protective covers) it uses to enclose cargo during its existing Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy launches.

    President Donald Trump is expected to discuss new U.S. trade agreements with its North American neighbors and with China during an appearance Sunday at a convention of American farmers.  When Trump spoke to the American Farm Bureau Federation's convention last year, he urged farmers to continue supporting him even as they suffered financially in the fallout from his trade war with China and a partial shutdown of the federal government.  Trump's follow-up speech Sunday in Austin, Texas, will give him a chance to make the case to farmers that he kept two promises on trade that he made as a candidate - to improve trade with China and separately with Canada and Mexico - and that farmers stand to benefit from both pacts.

    Gun companies are gathering for their annual conference and trade show this week in Las Vegas at a pivotal moment for the industry amid slumping sales, a public increasingly agitating for restrictions on access to firearms and escalating tensions over gun control efforts.  The event, held by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the gun industry's lobbying group, will take place in Las Vegas — about 3 miles (4.8 kilometers) from the deadliest mass shooting modern U.S. history.  Gun sales normally taper off during Republican administrations because gun owners are not as compelled to stockpile weapons out of fear that lawmakers will impose restrictions on firearms.

    The group, brandishing banners warning 'Climate crisis: a world economic failure' and 'there is no Planet B,' urged political and business leaders to take responsibility for averting environmental catastrophe as they set off from the small town of Landquart some 50 kilometres (32 miles) from Davos.  'The climate question is the number one issue and it should simply be topic number one at Davos too and participants should recognise that; it is essential they go in this direction,' Katherine, a Zurich-based pensioner, told AFP.  Local authorities have only authorised the first two days of the activists' march as far as the swanky ski resort of Klosters but the group say they plan to follow narrow footpaths to make it as near the summit as possible.

    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    World leaders were poised to commit to ending all foreign meddling in Libya's war at a Berlin summit Sunday, but calls were growing for an international force to ensure that pledges are put into action.  The presidents of Russia, Turkey and France were among global chiefs at the talks held under the auspices of the United Nations, which wants foreign powers wielding influence in the region to stop interfering in the war -- be it through weapons, troops or financing.

  • 27/27   A Week In New York, NY, On A $180,000 Income
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Welcome to Money Diaries, where we’re tackling what might be the last taboo facing modern working women: money. We’re asking women how they spend their hard-earned money during a seven-day period — and we’re tracking every last dollar.Today: an underwriter who makes $180,000 per year and spends some of her money this week on a bottle of Fiji water.Occupation: Underwriter   Industry: Real Estate Finance   Age: 26   Location: New York, NY   Salary: $150,000 (base salary) + ~$30,000 (yearly bonus)   Paycheck Amount (2x/month): $3,500 (This is after my 401(k), insurance, and transit costs that total to $1,030.15)   Gender Identity: WomanMonthly Expenses  Rent: $1,150 (I was fortunate enough to find my rent stabilized apartment in downtown Manhattan in a housing group on Facebook, which is why the rent (which includes utilities and wifi) is much lower than market rent. I have two roommates.)   Loans: $0   Savings: $1,000   Investments: $1,000   Roth IRA: $500  Traditional IRA: $500   Mother’s Mortgage: $250 (I send this to my mom every month to help her with the mortgage on her house so she can pay it off quicker!)  Cleaning Person: $40 (2x/month, split three ways)   Gym: $85   ClasPass: $52.25   Sugaring: $51.21 (billed monthly)  Cell Phone: $50 (I’m still on my family plan, but I usually just send my mom $600 in one go for the year, but will include as a monthly cost for now)  iCloud: $2.99   Wall Street Journal: $4 Day One11 a.m. — I had set my alarm for 10:30, but ended up rolling out of bed at 11. We had our holiday party last night and there were employees there, but also clients and business partners. A lot of us ended up entertaining clients and spending time with coworkers until 5 a.m. Luckily, the day after our work parties, the office is pretty dead, so getting in by noon is actually not too bad. I quickly change into jeans and a top and head out to the office. 1 p.m. — Every Friday, our office gets bagels. I arrive at the office around noon, and probably only 40 percent of the office is actually in. Thank god! I sit at my desk and start munching on my bagel. Definitely need some food/carbs in my system while I go through some emails.4:30 p.m. — Fridays at work are generally more relaxed, but because of the party, most people either didn’t come in altogether or just left early. I end up leaving at 4 and heading to the gym to detox a little. I buy a small Fiji water since I forgot my water bottle at home. $26 p.m. — After the gym, I head over to BHLDN to look at bridesmaids dresses with my friend, O., who is also a bridesmaid. Our best friend is getting married in May and we are looking to find different dresses for her wedding (she’s going for more of a boho style wedding). It’s our first session looking, and there are so many options! I liked two of them, but don’t end up purchasing any dresses. Neither does my friend. 8:30 p.m. — After BHLDN, O. and I grab sushi together. We haven’t seen each other since early December, so we have a lot to catch up on! The restaurant essentially kicks us out when they are getting ready to close. By the time dinner is over, I’m exhausted. I take the subway home and fall asleep by 10:30. $33.54Daily Total: $35.54 Day Two9:30 a.m. — I wake up early (early for me on a Saturday) and roll around in bed for a while. Since I have time before my next bridesmaid dress fitting, I decide to head to the gym. The gym is right by my office, which is about a 30-minute bike ride. The weather is fantastic for January, so I bike up to midtown. 10:30 a.m. — I end up at the gym and realize I forgot my water. Again. I buy another Fiji water and workout for a bit. After running and doing some floor work, I head to the locker room to shower. I realize I’m running late since I have to head back downtown to Kleinfeld! $212 p.m. — I end up only running 10 minutes late to Kleinfeld. Phewf! O. is already there and we head up to the bridesmaids section. To note, the bride lives in Europe, so we’re essentially taking photos of the dresses we try on to send to her for approval. Apparently, you have to make an appointment to try on dresses, so luckily, they have an availability later in the afternoon so we schedule our appointment for 2:30. Since neither of us had food, O. and I head around the corner to grab brunch. I order a Bloody Mary to start my meal, and O. is much healthier, so she gets a coffee. As we’re munching on our food, we chat about some personal issues that arose since we last saw each other (which was last night). We almost lose track of time, so we rush out to head back to Kleinfeld. $302:30 p.m. — I feel even more overwhelmed at Kleinfeld than at BHLDN. They have so many styles and even more colors to the point where I lose track of the bride’s vision. Both O. and I try on multiple styles and colors. I’m definitely thinking of going back to BHLDN to try on some more dresses and hopefully purchase one! However, O. ends up falling in love with a dress, so we send a few pictures to the bride and head out. 4:30 p.m. — I head down to FiDi via subway using my monthly card ($70 is reimbursed by the company and I deduct $70 from my paycheck) where my friend is hosting a get-together with some other people from college. I arrived late, due to the bridesmaids dress appointment, and everyone’s already playing charades. I watch a little, but wait until they’re done with their round. 6:30 p.m. — After a few rounds of games, we all are hungry. We decide to walk from FiDi to Chinatown to eat at a Malaysian restaurant. With ten of us, we order so many dishes. With full bellies, we chat and joke around. Surprisingly, the price ends up being a little over $20 per person, which is insane for the amount of food we ordered. I realize that my boyfriend, J., is almost done watching the 49ers, so I rush from Chinatown to my apartment via Citibike to meet him at my apartment. $22.528:30 p.m. — I meet J. at my apartment where he’s waiting. He comes up to my apartment, we chat for a bit. I haven’t seen him since before New Year’s since he was away visiting his family, so it’s great to finally see him. We’ve been together for over two years at this point, but we definitely go a week or two without seeing each other fairly regularly.11:15 p.m. — We go to a restaurant with live jazz and fabulous cocktails. J. hates taking the subway, so I call an Uber to take us to our 11:30 reservation. We tend to always eat dinner around 10 p.m. on weekends, so this is even late for us! $16.422Daily Total: $70.94 Day Three1:30 a.m. — J. and I really enjoy dinner and drinks with live music faintly playing in the background. Drinks at this place are $18-$20 each and we end up shelling out $114 each for dinner and drinks here. I’m falling asleep at the table, so J. calls a cab and we head back to the apartment to sleep. $1141 p.m. — I watch videos on my phone until J. wakes up. The second he wakes up, he says he’s hungry, but wants to watch the Chiefs/Texans game somewhere. We get ready and head out to find a good sports bar/restaurant to grab brunch. 2 p.m. — We end up at a bar a few blocks up from my apartment where they have upstairs seating with open windows. The weather is insanely warm again for January, so we sit by the window and order classic brunch food. I get another Bloody Mary and he gets a mimosa. The game starts at 3, so we stay and watch. After some ridiculous plays and an intense first half, it gets a bit too crazy for J., so we head back to the apartment. $375 p.m. — J. wants to head back to his apartment in NJ to unpack and prep for the Seahawks/Packers game since he hasn’t been at his place for over four weeks at this point, so we say goodbye. I won’t see him until Friday night, so it’s always sad to see him leave. As he’s packing up his overnight bag in my apartment, I realize my parents are in the city, so I decide to meet them for dinner downtown. 5:30 p.m. — I bike down to meet my parents. We eat take out and hang out for a while. My dad drove into the city, so he drives me back to my apartment. We stop by a Taiwanese dessert shop where we order desserts and eat. We catch up and they head out. They pay.7:30 p.m. — I wind down for the evening in my apartment. I want to figure out how to allocate my stocks, but I realize I have work I need to prep before I head to the office. I end up going working for three hours. Luckily, I have a White Claw in hand and You on the background. Not too shabby since I usually have to work Sunday afternoons anyway. Pretty basic night, but much needed after running around all weekend! Daily Total: $151 Day Four8:15 a.m. — I wake up at 8:15, and then roll around in bed for a while. I can’t believe it’s Monday already! I get up and get ready for work. I end up getting to work around 9:30, which is pretty typical for our team. It’s a busy day already with calls all morning. For lunch, I make a sandwich with the groceries our office orders. The day whizzes by with different transactions I have to review. 7:45 p.m. — I leave work for the day and rush down to the studio where I take this HIIT class downtown. I love the class and the instructor, so I always try to make it to the 8:15 p.m. class every Monday. It’s about 45 minutes, but wish it was even longer. 9:30 p.m. — I stop by Target near the studio and buy toilet paper. Even though there are only three of us living in the apartment, we go through toilet paper pretty quickly. I’m in charge of buying household supplies and then splitting the cost every month. I grab a six-pack of toilet paper and then walk home. I get back around 10, say hi to the roommates, and head to bed. $6.52Daily Total: $6.52 Day Five7:15 a.m. — I try to head to the gym in the mornings when I know I have something planned for after work. I wake up an hour earlier to go to the gym near my office for a quick workout and shower. It’s always hard getting out of bed earlier for me since I’m such a night owl, but once I’m there, it’s worth it and totally fine.9:30 a.m. — I end up going into the office around 9:30 again. The morning starts with an hour-long conference call. Blah! Those always take so long. On Tuesdays, the office offers catered sandwiches for everyone, so I snag a sandwich and eat at my desk. I receive a bunch of packages at the office since I try to have packages delivered to the office instead of my apartment (I don’t have a doorman!). I end up receiving J.’s belated Christmas gift, my Everlane boots, and some household supplies. J.’s gift is a custom cutting board. 7 p.m. — I have a dinner reservation with some of my sorority sisters from college. We have dinners together on the second Tuesday of every month. This month, we’re dining at an Italian restaurant in the West Village. I want to bring all my packages home together, especially since I snagged a Fresh Direct bag from the office to put most of the packages in, so I call a Via to the office and take it down to the West Village. $14.527:30 p.m. — I make it to dinner. The food at this restaurant was amazing and delicious. We ordered a few appetizers to start, some wine, and then loads of pasta, with some chocolate cake to finish. Full bellies and full hearts for sure. Since only L. and I had wine, I put the entire bill on my credit card to split later based on the items we ordered. It ends up being $80 for L. and I and then $65 for F. $8010 p.m. — With all my packages, I decide to take a cab back home. I lug my packages up the stairs and start opening them. It feels like Christmas again! J.’s gift actually came with two cutting boards, which was very kind of the Etsy store. I wrap J.’s gifts and then head to bed. $12.25Daily Total: $106.77 Day Six7:15 a.m. — I drag myself out of bed and head to the gym again before work. I run less than a mile on the treadmill and change the incline to 5.0. I feel like that’s probably a solid treadmill workout for feeling so tired. I shower and head to the office. 9:30 a.m. — I get to the office and have a full morning of calls. Super boring. I usually don’t eat breakfast, but today, I grab a banana from the office kitchen to snack on. At noon, I receive an email from the GM of a boxing studio. The COO of the company and I enjoy working out together, and we have been trying to schedule a private session with a specific trainer at this boxing studio. After a month of waiting, he’s actually available to teach this upcoming Saturday! I book the private training session for the both of us and put the bill on my card. For lunch, I grab yogurt and fruit and have it with chocolate-covered pretzels. It’s a busy day! $130.256:25 p.m. — I head out early from the office to go to my tutoring appointment. I’ve been tutoring this girl for the past three years and I meet her once per week.8:30 p.m. — At my student’s house, I go over her science essay on sedimentary rocks and then eat dinner with her. When we’re done I walk home. I have more work to do, but I don’t want to go home and spend time possibly catching my roommate’s cold. I stop at the coffee shop around the corner from my apartment, order a hot chocolate, and plop myself down with my laptop and finish up the work I have to do. $3.5010 p.m. — The coffee shop is about to close, so I pack up my belongings walk back to the apartment. I didn’t get to finish what I was working on, so I spend some time in the living room finishing up my work, while my other roommate finishes a documentary. I call it a night at around 11:30 and head to bed!Daily Total: $133.75 Day Seven6:55 a.m. — I snooze way too much. Once a week, I volunteer in the mornings at the public school near my apartment. I am definitely running late and have to power walk down the street to get to the school. We spend about 45 minutes with the elementary school students and help them with math. I end up playing multiplication bingo with a couple of kids and then head out to work. 12 p.m. — It’s pizza day at the office! The office provides pizza once a week. Probably not the healthiest option, but it’s hard to say no when you can smell it from your desk (and when lunch is free). My friend, T., texts me and asks if I want to go to Rumble later tonight. I ran out of credits on Classpass, so I purchase a one time class on their app. $37.627:30 p.m. — I get to Rumble and purchase their gloves. Luckily, I brought my own wraps AND I remembered my water, so I don’t have to worry about either of those things. It’s too much of a hassle to bring my own gloves, so I tend to just borrow them at the studio. It’s always a great workout, even though the boxing steps are pretty inaccurate. $3.269 p.m. — My friend, T., and I grab dinner after we work out. We end up gossiping and talking about wedding planning, since she’s MOH for her sister’s wedding, and I’m currently doing other bridesmaids activities for my friend. We part ways after about an hour and a half, and I bike back home to shower and get ready for bed. $25Daily Total: $65.88Money Diaries are meant to reflect individual women’s experiences and do not necessarily reflect Refinery29’s point of view.

I shower and head to the office. 9:30 a.m. — I get to the office and have a full morning of calls. Super boring. I usually don’t eat breakfast, but today, I grab a banana from the office kitchen to snack on. At noon, I receive an email from the GM of a boxing studio. The COO of the company and I enjoy working out together, and we have been trying to schedule a private session with a specific trainer at this boxing studio. After a month of waiting, he’s actually available to teach this upcoming Saturday! I book the private training session for the both of us and put the bill on my card. For lunch, I grab yogurt and fruit and have it with chocolate-covered pretzels. It’s a busy day! $130.256:25 p.m. — I head out early from the office to go to my tutoring appointment. I’ve been tutoring this girl for the past three years and I meet her once per week.8:30 p.m. — At my student’s house, I go over her science essay on sedimentary rocks and then eat dinner with her. When we’re done I walk home. I have more work to do, but I don’t want to go home and spend time possibly catching my roommate’s cold. I stop at the coffee shop around the corner from my apartment, order a hot chocolate, and plop myself down with my laptop and finish up the work I have to do. $3.5010 p.m. — The coffee shop is about to close, so I pack up my belongings walk back to the apartment. I didn’t get to finish what I was working on, so I spend some time in the living room finishing up my work, while my other roommate finishes a documentary. I call it a night at around 11:30 and head to bed!Daily Total: $133.75 Day Seven6:55 a.m. — I snooze way too much. Once a week, I volunteer in the mornings at the public school near my apartment. I am definitely running late and have to power walk down the street to get to the school. We spend about 45 minutes with the elementary school students and help them with math. I end up playing multiplication bingo with a couple of kids and then head out to work. 12 p.m. — It’s pizza day at the office! The office provides pizza once a week. Probably not the healthiest option, but it’s hard to say no when you can smell it from your desk (and when lunch is free). My friend, T., texts me and asks if I want to go to Rumble later tonight. I ran out of credits on Classpass, so I purchase a one time class on their app. $37.627:30 p.m. — I get to Rumble and purchase their gloves. Luckily, I brought my own wraps AND I remembered my water, so I don’t have to worry about either of those things. It’s too much of a hassle to bring my own gloves, so I tend to just borrow them at the studio. It’s always a great workout, even though the boxing steps are pretty inaccurate. $3.269 p.m. — My friend, T., and I grab dinner after we work out. We end up gossiping and talking about wedding planning, since she’s MOH for her sister’s wedding, and I’m currently doing other bridesmaids activities for my friend. We part ways after about an hour and a half, and I bike back home to shower and get ready for bed. $25Daily Total: $65.88Money Diaries are meant to reflect individual women’s experiences and do not necessarily reflect Refinery29’s point of view.
