Iraqi forces fighting Islamic State set to storm airport, clear way to western Mosul

By Isabel Coles and Maher Chmaytelli SOUTH OF MOSUL, Iraq/BAGHDAD (Reuters) - U.S.-backed Iraqi forces closing in on the Islamic State-held western half of Mosul prepared on Tuesday to storm the airport and a nearby military base on its southern outskirts to create a bridgehead for a thrust into the city. Since ousting the militant group from eastern Mosul last month, Iraqi forces have advanced in sparsely populated outlying areas but fighting will intensify as they near the teeming inner city of western Mosul and the risk to roughly 750,000 civilians there will rise.

It looks like Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 is coming back from the dead

A few weeks ago, Samsung finally explained what caused the Galaxy Note 7 fires and explosions that killed the highly praised phablet soon after it started selling in stores. But the company never said what it planned to do with the huge pile of brand new and briefly used Galaxy Note 7 units that it collected from all over the world when it recalled the failed phone.

U.S. tax agency backs off tougher planned Obamacare oversight
U.S. tax agency backs off tougher planned Obamacare oversight

The U.S. Internal Revenue Service said on Wednesday it will not reject tax filings that do not indicate whether the taxpayer had health coverage or paid a penalty set under Obamacare, setting aside a tougher planned oversight of the health law. Republican President Donald Trump, who has pledged to dismantle the 2010 Affordable Care Act, signed an order on Jan. 20, his first day in office, to freeze regulations and take other steps to weaken the law, which is known as Obamacare. Twenty million Americans gained health insurance under the law, whose so-called individual mandate requires Americans to carry health insurance or face a penalty.

'No-brainer' or no-no? Congress split on probing Trump tax returns

By David Morgan WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Congressional Democrats on Friday said the U.S. Congress should obtain President Donald Trump's tax records to examine possible conflicts of interest, although Republicans showed little interest in taking action.

The Ways and Means Committee is one of three panels with the authority to subpoena tax returns.

Canada swings to deficit in November with expenses up, revenue down

The Canadian government swung to a budgetary deficit in November compared to the year before as revenue decreased and program expenses increased due to a new benefit for families, the Finance Department said on Friday.
