Hillary Clinton Absolutely Burns Michael Flynn With A Single Tweet

Michael Flynn resigned as President Donald Trump ’s national security advisor on Monday night, and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton retweeted a suggestion for a new line of work… at Domino’s Pizza. Flynn and his son, Michael Flynn Jr., had spread conspiracy theories on social media about Clinton, former President  Barack  Obama  and more.  The younger Flynn helped spread the debunked #PizzaGate conspiracy theory in which Comet Ping Pong, a Washington, D.C., pizza place, was supposedly at the center of a pedophilia ring linked to the Clinton campaign.

Facebook Raises The Bar For Supporting Grieving Employees

In one very heartfelt swoop, Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg has raised the bar on a very important employment benefit most people hope they’ll never use: paid bereavement leave ― the time off you need to recover from the loss of a loved one. The tech giant will now provide 20 days of paid bereavement leave, double the amount previously given. Sandberg knows from whence she speaks. She went back to work 10 days after her husband, Dave Goldberg, died in 2015.  “This is personal for me,” Sandberg said when making the announcement at the Makers conference , a women’s leadership event sponsored by AOL, the parent company of The Huffington Post. “ I lost my husband very suddenly .

In what can only be described as a blaze of irony, batteries are being blamed for a fire that occurred Wednesday at a Samsung factory in China. Samsung, which last month blamed batteries for its exploding Galaxy Note 7 smartphones, said the fire broke out  in an area of the company’s Tianjin plant used to store faulty batteries and other waste products. The Wuqing branch of the Tianjin Fire Department reported in a verified social media post that it sent 110 firefighters and 19 trucks to the scene. The fire department specifically cited lithium batteries as the fuel behind the conflagration. The Korean company called the fire “minor” and said that it didn’t affect production. Video posted on social media showed black plumes of smoke  rising from a building.
