Vadra puts out philosophical message 17.10.2017 deccanherald.com
Facing allegations of "links" with fugitive arms dealer Sanjay Bhandari, Congress president Sonia Gandhis son-in-law Robert Vadra today put out a philosophical message. "Good Morning, I am capable, I am strong. If I believe in myself, I can turn my dreams into a plan, and my plan into my reality," says a quote on his Facebook post along with his photograph and a few horses running by a sea. This post came a day after a TV channel claimed that Bhandari had booked business-class tickets for Vadra in 2012. Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman today asked Sonia Gandhi and Rahul to "break their silence" on allegations against Vadra, adding that their silence will be construed as acceptance of the charges.

The Congress on Tuesday strongly defended its president Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra, while upping the ante against BJP national president Amit Shah's son Jay Shah, whose business reportedly saw a massive revenue growth after the BJP came to power.

U.S. Supreme Court to decide major Microsoft email privacy fight 16.10.2017 DNA: Top News
The US Supreme Court on Monday agreed to resolve a major privacy dispute between the Justice Department and Microsoft Corp over whether prosecutors should get access to emails stored on company servers overseas. The justices will hear the Trump administration's appeal of a lower court's ruling last year preventing federal prosecutors from obtaining emails stored in Microsoft computer servers in Dublin, Ireland in a drug trafficking investigation. That decision by the New York-based 2nd U.S. Court of Appeals marked a victory for privacy advocates and technology companies that increasingly offer cloud computing services in which data is stored remotely. Microsoft, which has 100 data centers in 40 countries, was the first U.S. company to challenge a domestic search warrant seeking data held outside the country. There have been several similar challenges, most brought by Google. "If U.S. law enforcement can obtain the emails of foreigners stored outside the United States, what's to stop the government of ...
