De Blasio mocked by protesters at raucous Green New Deal rally inside Trump Tower | Fox News

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio faced a crowd of angry protesters Monday at a raucous rally promoting the city’s Green New Deal inside the lobby of Trump Tower, where the Democrat threatened President Trump’s family company with millions of dollars in fines if his buildings don’t comply with new environmental standards.

Speaking in front of the same escalators where Trump launched his 2016 campaign, de Blasio blasted the president’s rollback of Obama-era environmental policies, his move to pull the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement and his appointment of climate change skeptics to the Cabinet.

“His buildings are one of the biggest polluters in New York City,” de Blasio said. “Cut your emissions or we’ll cut something you really care about.”

De Blasio, who is mulling a Democratic presidential run, added: “We’ll take your money.”

New push for recruits during auto mechanic shortage

For those looking for a career, the road to the future may be on the road itself. No four-year-degree is required, and jobs are in high demand.

The Pittsburgh Automobile Dealers Association covers an 11-county area and currently has a shortage of almost 500 workers.

“The dealers in our region sold 150,000 new cars last year. Every one of those cars have multiple computers in them and an enormous amount of electronics. Those have to be serviced immediately and repaired,” Amati said.

The typical career path has students attending full- or part-time work training during their junior and senior years of high school, followed by a post-secondary education program for up to two years.

The average cost for the education is $10,000, but with the high demand for good mechanics, it is oftentimes free.

Apple can be sued over high prices in their App Store. | Fox News

Justice Brett Kavanaugh sided with the liberal wing of the Supreme Court on Monday, penning an opinion against Apple that ruled the tech company can be sued over high prices in their App Store.

The case, Apple v. Pepper, was brought by iPhone users who complained that the App Store is the only place where iPhone apps are available and that, as a result, Apple has a monopoly on “the iPhone apps aftermarket.” They claim prices are consequently high stemming from the charges Apple imposes on app developers.

China said it will impose tariffs on its US imports of to up to 25 percent on June 1. Many of the items, which had been subject to 10 percent tariffs, affected the US agricultural industry.

The Dow was recently off 632.62 points, or 2.4 percent, at 25,309.75. Market indexes were all down sharply as of 11:38 am ET, with the S&P 500 and tech-weighted Nasdaq plunging 2.4 percent and 3.2 percent, respectively.

Two Saudi oil tankers ‘sabotaged’ in the Gulf – BBC News

\

Two Saudi oil tankers were the targets of a “sabotage attack” off the coast of the United Arab Emirates on Sunday, Saudi Arabia’s energy minister says.

The incident near Fujairah port, in the Gulf just outside the Strait of Hormuz, caused “significant damage” to the ships, according to Khalid al-Falih.

The UAE said four ships were targeted, but that there were no casualties.

Iran, which borders the strait, called the incident “worrisome and dreadful” and called for a full investigation.

It is not known who carried out the alleged attack, which comes amid heightened tension in the area.
