BuzzFeed is struggling to defend its major Trump scoop after Mueller's report discredited it

BuzzFeed employeesBrendan McDermid/Reuters

When BuzzFeed reported on January 17 that President Donald Trump ordered his former fixer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about plans for a Trump-branded skyscraper in Moscow, the upstart outlet framed the story as a revelation of historical importance — "the first known example of Trump explicitly telling a subordinate to lie directly about his own dealings with Russia" — and a vindication for BuzzFeed's ambitious newsroom.

Unlike other bombshells to emerge from the Russia investigation, this was the first to unambiguously accuse the sitting president of committing such a serious crime — an impeachable offense, many said. And the story's headline — "President Trump Directed His Attorney Michael Cohen To Lie To Congress About The Moscow Tower Project" — lacked any caveats or hedges. Moreover, the reporters Anthony Cormier and Jason Leopold said Mueller's team had documentation showing Trump instructed Cohen to lie.

Wall Street firms are being taken over by 22-year-olds — here are the big banks that rely on junior talent the most

bankersPeter MacDiarmid/Getty Images

As Wall Street banks spend billions to upgrade technology and automate tasks, the mundane and tedious work that used to define the early years of a career at an investment bank is increasingly disappearing, with bots and algorithms springing into action to take over. 

JPMorgan Chase, for instance, is digitizing dealmaking, using machine learning for elements of underwriting stocks and bonds and saving hundreds of thousands of hours of work in the process. Goldman Sachs is automating initial public offerings, stripping out half the roughly 130 steps in the process and delegating them to computers.

Here's another sign Apple wants to make its Mac software more like the iPhone (AAPL)

Tim Cook MacGetty

Apple is reportedly planning to bring iPhone features like Siri Shortcuts and Screen Time to the Mac operating system, another move that could further bridge its mobile and desktop software.

The additions will be part of a new update called macOS 10.15 that's expected to be announced during the company's World Wide Developers conference on June 3, according to 9to5Mac. Siri Shortcuts is a feature that makes it possible for Apple's virtual assistant to make recommendations based on your activity, and it was introduced in iOS 12 last fall. Apple also offers a Shortcuts app users can download to further streamline tasks through Siri, and the report indicates this app will soon be available for the Mac, too.

Gig-economy workers like Uber and Lyft drivers may be skewing low unemployment numbers

LyftJustin Sullivan/Getty

While unemployment may be at record lows, the growing number of gig workers who aren't on payroll may be skewing the data, according to a new report

The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas — one of 12 regional reserve banks that make up the centralized Fed — found that although unemployment is low, wage growth has not increased. One reason could be the rise of gig workers: The report found that the number of workers who pay self-employment taxes has risen steadily over the last 35 years.

The 10 characters fans think are most likely to die in 'Avengers: Endgame'

avengers endgameMarvel/Disney

We're not expecting everyone to make it out of "Avengers: Endgame" alive when it comes to theaters Friday, April 26.

INSIDER polled 760 Marvel fans to see who they think is the most likely to die by the movie's end. There are a lot of characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In creating our survey, we confined our choices to 32 survivors and fallen characters featured prominently on "Avengers: Endgame" posters.

As a result, Thanos was not included here as a voting option. (Personally, I don't think he's going to die. I could be totally wrong though!) We wanted to focus here on the heroes. 

INSIDER asked fans to choose up to five surviving "Infinity War" characters they believe are most likely to die by the movie's end. We then asked them to select the one individual character they don't think will make it out alive. We then asked these two questions again with all 32 characters seen on the "Avengers" posters. INSIDER found that a lot of respondents decided to skip questions that involved characters who seemingly died in "Infinity War." Because of that, this list is focused around the surviving characters fans think are most likely to be killed by the end of "Endgame."

What do fans think?

They don't feel good about anyone who is close to Tony Stark. Most people think Captain Marvel, the most recent hero introduced into the MCU, is definitely safe. Keep reading to see who fans think won't make it out of "Endgame" alive ranked from least likely to most likely to be killed. At the end of our ranking, you can see the results of several questions laid out in graphs.

Who took this survey?

Respondents to our "Avengers: Endgame" survey ranged in age from under 17 to 75 and older. The largest percentage of survey takers (41.2%) were between the ages of 18 to 24. 66.5% of respondents said they always keep up with the MCU films, and 343 of our survey takers said they live outside of the US and Canada. Our survey skewed male with 473 men and 248 women responding. There were 17 persons who preferred not to respond regarding their gender. Two preferred to self-describe. 

10. Bruce Banner/Hulk —13.9%

Marvel

Banner was among some of the top characters when we asked fans to select up to five characters they thought might die in "Endgame." However, only two respondents believed he will be the one character most likely to die by the movie's end.

When INSIDER asked fans who may die out of 32 characters living or lost after the events of "Infinity War," only one respondent out of 367 who decided to answer the question thought Hulk would bite the dust. 

Our take: The Hulk probably isn't going anywhere. Ruffalo said in 2012 he signed on for a six-film deal. "Endgame" will mark his official fifth film. He had a cameo in "Iron Man 3." If the Hulk and Bruce Banner have patched things up in "Endgame" to work together, we'd love to see more of this new and improved Banner.

 



9. Thor — 14.2%

Disney/Marvel

The God of Thunder is definitely one of the most beloved characters in the MCU, but he's not one fans seem overly concerned about.

Across the board, Thor was consistently near the very bottom when we asked fans to predict who they expected to die in "Endgame." It didn't matter whether or not the characters were confirmed alive after the snap or were among those who vanished. When fans were asked to choose up to five characters they thought were most likely to die in "Endgame," Thor was positioned nine out of 16 possible responses.

Only eight respondents said they thought Thor was the one character most likely to die in "Endgame." When we asked fans what characters they would be the most upset over losing, Thor was always one of the top four heroes.

Our take: We hope Thor doesn't perish in "Endgame." His popularity skyrocketed after the evolution of his character in the hilarious "Thor: Ragnarok." Plus, according to Tessa Thompson, who plays Valkyrie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there's already talk of a fourth "Thor" movie. You can't have that without Hemsworth, right?

"I heard that a pitch has happened for [another "Thor" film]," Thompson told the Los Angeles Times. "I don't know how real that intel is, but I hear that the pitch has happened. I think the idea is Taika [Waititi, who directed 'Ragnarok'] would come back."



8. Pepper Potts — 15.8%

Disney/Marvel Studios

Fans don't think things are looking too great for Potts. When we asked about the characters in all 32 of the "Endgame" posters released, fans were less concerned about Potts and more worried for other superheroes. 

58 respondents said they would be most upset by her death when they were allowed to select up to five characters who could die in "Endgame."

Our take: Paltrow's days may be numbered in the MCU, but we're not certain we'll see her killed off. The actress confirmed in February to Variety she'll be retiring from the universe after "Endgame." A trailer for "Spider-Man: Far From Home" teased Potts will still be alive in the universe, and we know the movie takes place minutes after "Endgame."

Paltrow said if she's ever needed for a flashback scene or for a day, she'll always be more than happy to step in for a day.

Meet Chasten Buttigieg, Pete Buttigieg's husband, who is a junior high school teacher, a dog dad, and very online

If social media presence is any indication, Chasten Glezman Buttigieg is the most popular 2020 presidential spouse on the trail. 

South Bend, Indiana mayor and 2020 contender Pete Buttigieg's husband has amassed national name recognition as his husband launched from relative obscurity to one of the most talked-about Democrats in the 2020 race. 

While his husband welcomes the new attention, Chasten is quick to poke fun at it. 

"Being Pete's husband has already been the adventure of a lifetime," he told the crowd at a Human Rights Campaign annual dinner last week. "I now live in a world where people take photos of me in the deodorant aisle at the grocery store." 

His regular wit, intimate social media musings, and polished speeches have prompted glowing media coverage and declarations that Chasten is "winning the 2020 spouse primary."

The Buttigiegs (pronounced "BOOT-edge-EDGE") are in part campaigning on their identity as gay men. Mayor Pete, as people in South Bend call him, is the second-ever openly gay man to run for president. 

"I could be the first man in history to pick out the White House china," Chasten, an improv comedian, said to cheers during his HRC speech. 

Here's what you need to know about Chasten Buttigieg:

Samsung's Galaxy Fold is an ambitious but flawed first attempt at what could be the future of smartphones

Samsung Galaxy FoldHollis Johnson/Business Insider

Samsung has been flaunting its flexible display technology for years, but the company finally showcased the culmination of those efforts with the Galaxy Fold, its $1,980 foldable smartphone that goes on sale April 26. 

The Fold features a 4.6-inch cover display on the front, which unfolds like a book to reveal a larger, tablet-sized 7.3-inch screen. Cameras are located on the front, back, and inside of the device so that you can take photos whether the phone is open or shut. The device supports facial recognition, so you can unlock the device just by looking at it, but there's also a fingerprint sensor located along the side of the device near the volume keys and the button that launches Bixby, Samsung's virtual assistant. It comes with a case and Samsung's new $129 Galaxy Buds in the box.

Elizabeth Warren becomes the first senator — and first 2020 candidate — to call for impeaching Trump over the Mueller report

Sen. Elizabeth Warren became the most prominent Democrat and first 2020 presidential candidate to call on the House to begin impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump on Friday afternoon.

Warren made her case a day after the Justice Department released a redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation report, which did not find sufficient evidence to accuse the president of conspiring with the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 election.

You'll soon be able to buy churros that look like lightsabers and cake that looks like Sorcerer Mickey at Disney World

sorcerer mickey cakeDisney

In addition to its magical rides and attractions, Walt Disney World is also known for selling top-of-the-line food throughout the year. And on special occasions, the theme park has been know to introduce a new dish or two.

Starting May 1, the Florida theme park will do just that when it begins celebrating the 30th anniversary of Hollywood Studios. In honor of the occasion, Disney has plans to introduce a new line of cuisine to the park, much of which will be entirely new creations.

Parkgoers will also be able to buy "legacy menu items," which haven't been sold since the park opened, according to the Disney Parks Blog. From lightsaber-shaped churros to birthday cupcakes, get a glimpse of the upcoming treats below.

Some of the most anticipated treats on the upcoming menu are Lightsaber Churros.

Disney

The treats will be coated in red and blue sugar, and packaged in silver boxes.

They'll also be sold at multiple dining areas throughout the park, including Anaheim Produce, The Market at Hollywood Studios, Pretzel Palooza, and various churro carts.



Another 'Star Wars' dessert on the menu is the Kylo Ren Cupcake.

Disney

This dessert is flavored with peanut butter and chocolate, and includes a candy version of the character on top.

Parkgoers can purchase the dessert at the Dockside Diner and Rosie's All-American Cafe.



The Sorcerer's Hat dessert might invoke a sense of nostalgia among Disney lovers.

Disney

Not only does this treat look like the giant sorcerer's hat that was located in Hollywood Studios for 14 years, but it's also filled with lots of delicious ingredients.

According to the Disney Parks Blog, the Sorcerer's Hat is made from "lemon sponge cake with vanilla Swiss buttercream, lemon curd, and white chocolate glaze." It can be purchased at the ABC Commissary and Fantasmic! Food Carts.
