PHOENIX — A U.S. judge in Arizona sided Wednesday with migrants who have long-complained about inhumane and unsanitary conditions in some U.S. Border Patrol facilities in the state.

Tesla's biggest problem with self-driving cars is that it actually has to sell them to customers (TSLA)

Unlike Cruise and Waymo, Tesla has created a business around building cars and selling them to consumers. This business model has been wildly successful for Tesla, now valued as highly as three of General Motors. But Tesla is hamstrung by this model, as far as the potentially $8 trillion autonomous ride-hailing and ride-sharing business is concerned. Tesla is trapped, having created great products that consumers want and love, but also watching as competitors design all-new businesses optimize...

It’s worth saying at the outset that this is not to say that the condemnation of Phoenix, who accepted an Oscar for h...

While buyers will benefit from favorable mortgage rates, which remain near historic lows, the heightened competition and scant supply of homes...

This Batman producer reveals why Joker actors win Oscars

Michael Uslan can clearly see himself on a bench outside the offices of Columbia Pictures on the day of darkest despair for him and the Batman. It’s the early ’80s, and he and his producing partner Ben Melnicker had just run out of studios to pitch on Uslan’s dream of a new kind of Batman movie, one where Batman was a darker, more serious character than the campy caped crusader he’d been on TV in the ’60s (and at times in the comic books, too). “I had my head between my legs at this point — this...

Gunman Gets 6 Years in Prison for Arizona Campus Shooting That Left 1 Dead, 3 Wounded

(FLAGSTAFF, Ariz.) — More than four years after gunshots rang out before dawn on a quiet college campus and stirred fears of a mass shooting, an Arizona man has been sentenced to six years in prison for killing a fellow student and wounding three others.
