DeVry University sued by U.S Federal Government

In the latest crackdown on for profit schools in America, the United States has now reportedly taken aim at DeVry University. According to court documents obtained by Daily News Online, the Federal Trade Commission lodged complaints against the school for 'viciously misleading students about job prospects' and that some end up working as 'delivery drivers'. FTC chairwoman Edith Ramirez noted in her federal complaint that the school knowingly deceived some 30,000-50,000 students about the jobs they could potentially receive. The school, however, claims that the allegations are to say the least unsubstantiated. The charges come after DeVry claimed in its advertising that students had their job of choice within 6 months of graduation, and, 15% higher income than all other college gra...

Denmark passes new law regarding assets of migrants

DENMARK -- Migrants in Denmark are about to get a very loud awakening when it comes to housing; and entitlements now that they've joined the country. According to officials, a new law, regarding the assets and seizures of said assets has been passed in regards to the influx of migrants in the country. Officials announced the new law Tuesday, some of which, will see the assets totaling $1.5k or more entirely seized from migrants. The seizure of assets has nothing to do with the government simply wanting to take things away, but rather, the government using the very same assets and the financial gain from them to help pay for the housing; food, and related costs for the migrants themselves. Officials note that the new law hopes to treat asylum seekers just as regular citizens, making...

America’s failing Customs And Immigration Program

NEW YORK -- A new report out on New York's John F. Kennedy Airport has people talking and not in a good way. According to The Daily News, travelers from Cancun Mexico this month were able to 'consistently arrive in New York City from their travels without being stopped at Customs for mandatory checks'. One unidentified business traveler was told he was 'OK' and was not screened at all after arriving from Mexico, something, that he says 'is absolutely ridiculous' per the Daily News. Some, perhaps, are concerned that this may be just another tell-tale way that terrorists are making their way into American airports. The incident reportedly happened from American Airlines Flight 1223 from Cancun Mexico. The Daily News notes that the same man went as far as to 'approach customs and ask...

Kickstarter investigating doomed drone

It has been hailed as one of the biggest Kickstarter scams, well, ever. But the case of a doomed drone that appeared on the crowdfunding site, er, has people talking. For starters, the questionable Welsh company Torquing Group, apparently created a mini drone like piece of hardware -- that never actually quite worked. A little backstory. In the beginning, the Kickstarter campaign promised a massive mini drone that presumably does what one might expect it to do. However, the first problem arose when pre-orders went out first instead of actual big-ticket donors getting their prize first. In the original campaign, Torquing, perhaps, squashed its $175,00 funding goal by hauling in nearly $3.3m. In the words of one Consumerist columnist, 'overfunding at its best'. Consumerist notes tha...

Ted Cruz claims he has no health insurance

TEXAS -- Well, this one, er, might cost Ted Cruz come tax return time (which is right around the corner for most Americans). According to Ted Cruz, who spoke to wild crowds in a NH audience, he apparently lost his health insurance at the end of 2015 -- thanks in alleged part to none other than Obamacare. However, not everybody is buying it. Per The New Yorker, Cruz's claim that millions of Americans lost their insurance plainly because of Obama and his signature healthcare law, er, doesn't quite add up. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, Obama's healthcare law, indeed, caused millions to lose their individual plan -- but resulted in millions more gaining healthcare they didn't have before.

FBI unable to crack San Bernandino couple’s massive collection of codes

SAN BERNANDINO -- Turns out, even, er, the FBI can't crack the encryption codes on the partial hard drives and cell phones found that belong to the infamous couple who reigned terror on a social services office. Officials tell Fox News that the encryptions may never be 'cracked', meaning, that lawmakers and legislators may use this particular situation in America -- as -- more reason to demand that tech companies allow backdoors into popular smartphones and devices (although, that probably won't happen). Per Fox News, Sayed Farook and Tashfeek Malik were 'able to fully encrypt their devices and essentially delete their information' prior to the attack. Experts further warn that without the 'missing digital footprint and the other half of a hard drive, the information sought to unco...
