Donald Trump is poised to extend his lead in the Republican presidential race in a string of East Coast primaries on Tuesday, but a complicated contest in Pennsylvania, the day's biggest prize, will test his recently reorganized campaign. The state features the sort of complex rules that Trump has repeatedly slammed for being "rigged" and that forced him this month to reshuffle his team to better compete with Ted Cruz, his main rival for the 1,237 delegates needed to win the nomination for the Nov. 8 election."It's as crooked almost as Hillary Clinton," Trump said on Monday at a campaign event in West Chester, Pennsylvania, taking a swing at both the Republican primary rules and the Democratic presidential front-runner.
FBI PLANS TO KEEP IPHONE HACKING METHOD SECRET
The FBI plans to keep the method used to crack a terrorist's Apple iPhone secret, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday, citing sources. The device, used by an shooter in last year's San Bernardino, California attack, fueled a high-profile legal battle between Apple and the government, which hoped to force Apple to unlock the phone. The FBI eventually breached it with the help of an unidentified third party, and it was unclear whether Apple would find out about the tool used. The agency wants to tell the White House it "knows so little" about the method that it would not make sense to internally review whether to tell Apple about it, the WSJ said. The paper reported the decision would leave Apple not knowing what security gaps exist in some phones.
HUBBLE TELESCOPE DISCOVERS A TINY MOON
Peering to the outskirts of our solar system, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has spotted a small, dark moon orbiting Makemake, the second brightest icy dwarf planet—after Pluto—in the Kuiper Belt.The moon—provisionally designated S/2015 (136472) 1 and nicknamed MK 2—is more than 1,300 times fainter than Makemake. MK 2 was seen approximately 13,000 miles from the dwarf planet, and its diameter is estimated to be 100 miles across. Makemake is 870 miles wide. The dwarf planet, discovered in 2005, is named for a creation deity of the Rapa Nui people of Easter Island.The Kuiper Belt is a vast reservoir of leftover frozen material from the construction of our solar system 4.5 billion years ago and home to several dwarf planets.
A STAR IN A STRANGE ROLE
Is Salman Khan qualified to be goodwill ambassador of the Indian contingent at the 2016 Rio Olympics? His father Salim Khan certainly seems to think so. In a tweet battle with Milkha Singh, who objected strenuously to the appointment, Khan Sr. declared — with disturbing disregard for punctuation given his reputation as a famed screenwriter — “Salman khan may not have competed but is an A level swimmer cyclist and weight lifter.” Well, that. And the fact that Khan Jr. looks like a wrestler (indeed, he plays one in his upcoming film, Sultan), and appears to be an ace gymnast as well, given his preternatural ability to slip between the front and rear seats of a Toyota Land Cruiser.
