“The most common things that the clients are saying — and they are quite heartbreaki

President Donald Trump looks — and is acting — rattled and encircled by the Russia investigation. And a series of fresh d
isclosures on Tuesday show there is every reason for him to feel threatened by the vast shadow it is casting over his life, business and presidency.
Newly unsealed court documents detailing special counsel Robert Mueller’s activity reveal an investigative field
of breathtaking scope and a prosecutorial machine that ratcheted quickly up in mid-2017.
The search warrants targeting Trump’s ex-personal lawyer Michael Cohen offer a glimpse of the covert world of the probe. As
is often the case with Mueller, they give only a tantalizing hint of the wider, yet still hidden, puzzle.
In court filing, Robert Mueller’s team says it’s very busy this week
But such disclosures are almost never good news for Trump.
There is enough to explain from Tuesday’s reveal why the in
vestigation must be weighing on Trump’s spirits, and driving his angry Twitter outbursts.
The vast breadth of the investigation by various jurisdictions also could offer a rich seam for Democratic House chair
en should they eventually subpoena primary evidence uncovered by Mueller and other prosecutors.
Agreement. This is where the prospect of a lengthy delay plays into the thinking of some.
A long delay presents the UK, potentially, with a choice. If it is to take part in the European elections, then it must legislate to do so before April 11. In that scenario, the
EU could propose a longish delay of around two years, with a fixed end point, but with a neat get-out clause. Were the Hous
e of Commons to approve May’s Brexit deal within that period, the UK would flip out of the EU and the Article 50 ex
tension would be reincarnated as the two-year transition, as per the current Withdrawal Agreement.
If that all sounds a little fiddly, here it is in simpler language. UK lawmakers would be presented with a choice of voti
ng to leave the EU with a deal that they may not love, or remain as a full member state and what that leads to is any
one’s guess: A general election, another referendum — take your pick of undesirable outcomes.
All of this was complicated further on Monday, when the Speaker of the House of Commons lobbed in a constitutional hand g
renade. John Bercow pronounced that Theresa May could not bring her Brexit deal back for a new vote in Parl
iament without the question being asked sufficiently differently from the one defeated last week.

The US Securities and Exchange Commission has rejected Elon Musk’s claims that the regulator is unfairly trying to silence him.
In a filing Monday, the SEC said it was “stunning” that the bi
llionaire business leader had continued to fire off tweets about Tesla without consulting others
at the company despite having agreed to a court-ordered settlement requiring him to do so.
The filing is the latest salvo in a protracted battle between
the SEC and Musk, who has been outspoken in his criticism of the securities regulator.
Pad Air and iPad mini, the company’s first refresh for those products in years.
Typically Apple (AAPL) creates fanfare around the arrival of new hardware. But this year it wants the focus of its upcoming spring press event to be on
its rumored streaming service. That’s why the company let the world know about its new iPads in a press release.
The iPad Air comes with a bigger 10.5-inch display (starting at $499), and the iPad mini has
the same 7.9-inch screen (starting at $399). The devices support the Apple Pencil for the first time and
a processor that’s three times faster than the previous models.The iPad mini will mostly serve as an entertainment devi
ce, likely to attract students and teenagers, while the lightweight iPad Air replaces the 10.5-inch iPad Pro.
The iPads don’t offer any revolutionary experiences and probably won’t move the
needle too much in terms of sales. However, they may appeal to consumers looking to adopt some of the fun
ctionality of a higher-end iPad Pro, according to Ben Stanton, a senior analyst at Canalys.
and Sing-Tel of Singapore－will sell the as yet unnamed 5G Oppo phone first, which is scheduled to be launched in the second quarter of this year.

tive brand in Europe, trying to lure consumers with cutting-edge products and design.
This is also proof of the company’s determination to conquer more develop
ed markets after its products became available in more than 40 countries and regions.
Fujian province, workers at a garment factory of Kelme are busy stitching and ironing the white and blue jerseys of the Spanish football club Espanyol.
Their goal is to meet the soaring domestic demand boosted by Wu
Lei, a Chinese striker who joined the club a month ago. Wu made history by becoming the first Ch
inese player to score in a La Liga match on March 2, sending his fans into a frenzy.
“Over the last month, we have sold over 10,000 Wu Lei jerseys,” said Ke Yongyuan, presid
