What Big Data Means for Your Life, Now and in the Future Netflix used Big Data to determine that 27 million subscribers would like the series House of Cards , starring Kevin Spacey. Yahoo used Big Data to require employees to come into the office rather than working from home. Google is using Big Data to develop self-driving cars. But, what is Big Data?

Ex-FBI Director Comey tells his side of the story Today, former FBI Director James Comey came close to calling the President who fired him a liar. The White House denied the claim and called it insulting, but Republican Senators did not challenge Comey’s truthfulness.

Trump plays scolder-in-chief with NATO allies At the opening of NATO’s dramatic new headquarters in Brussels today, President Trump acknowledged that Article 5 — promising that “an attack on one nation is an attack on all” -- has only been invoked one time: in the aftermath of September 11.
