AUSTIN, Texas - Apple will build a $1 billion campus in Austin, Texas, break ground on smaller locations in Seattle, San Diego and Culver City, California, and over the next three years will expand in Pittsburgh, New York and Colorado. The tech giant said Thursday that the new campus in Austin, less than a mile from existing Apple facilities, will open with 5,000 positions in engineering, research and development, operations, finance, sales and customer support. The site, according to Apple, will have the capacity to accommodate 15,000 employees. The three other new locations will have more than 1,000 employees each. Early this year, Apple said that it would make more than $30 billion in capital expenditures in the U.S. over the next five years. In January, the company said it would create more than 20,000 new jobs at existing and new campuses that Apple planned to build.

opinion A.T. LaMorte Reno Gazette Journal Opinion Published 11:00 AM EST Nov 24, 2018 It has come as a personal shock to realize that all of the road construction in Reno, Nevada, no longer bothers me. Anyone traveling through it knows it can be the worst part of driving to work in the mornings, especially if you're running late, or not particularly excited about where it is you have to go. Luckily for me and many other people I have been privileged to meet over the past year, work has become something worth sitting in traffic for. Getting my current job happened to me completely by random chance: A regular at the coffee shop where I worked overheard me complaining about my job and offered me a better one. That job happened to be in the cannabis industry. One year later, this job has become the best job I’ve ever had. I cannot claim to have weathered the storm of transition from medical to recreational, but I had the honor of being present at several early … [Read more...] about Nevada’s cannabis industry creating jobs
The pollsters were right to be cautious. The US midterm elections produced a more mixed picture than either party might have hoped – or feared. There was a bigger than expected majority for the Democrats in the House of Representatives; unexpected gains for the Republicans in the Senate; and better results for the Republicans in states where President Donald Trump stumped than where he did not. The new House is now more diverse – more representative of the United States as it is today – and the first openly gay state governor was elected, in generally progressive Colorado. What is more, there was the highest turnout at midterm elections for decades – so a victory for democratic engagement, too. The early consensus is that the advantage now lies with the Democrats. With control of the House, they also control all-important committees. They have some of the means to advance their agenda: on voting rights, healthcare, and domestic issues they campaigned on. Even … [Read more...] about Opinion: You’re not being told the whole truth about the midterms results
Election Night requires significant preparation for reporters and producers tasked with covering the results and over the past several weeks, dozens of us at CBS News have been cramming for Tuesday night the way a studious college student might prepare for a major final exam, or how our colleagues at CBS Sports study the rosters and statistics ahead of a big game. We know that elections aren't games – real-life matters are at stake, and the results could have significant repercussions for the nation's mood and Washington's ability to accomplish anything. On Election Night, my primary assignment is to track which party is winning control of the House of Representatives. Republicans have a 240-seat majority, while Democrats control 195 seats – needing to net 23 to take control. The first party to 218 seats wins. More than a year of polling and statistical models constructed by our teams at CBS News and other news outlets show that Democrats are expected to retake control, … [Read more...] about An hour-by-hour guide to the race to win the House
