"People around the globe identify ISIS and climate change as the leading threats to national security, according to a new Pew Research Center survey. The survey asked about eight possible threats.

"Anchor Brewing, San Francisco’s beloved 121-year-old brewery and creator of the city’s most famous beer, is being sold to Japan’s Sapporo Holdings Ltd. in a landmark deal. According to Keith Greggor, Anchor’s president and CEO, the move was a year in the making and the result of speaking with “many, many” larger breweries all over the world to find the right fit."

4. 🛎 Facebook Drowns Out Fake News With More Information

"Starting Thursday, when Facebook’s U.S. users come across popular links—including made-up news articles—in their feeds, they may also see a cluster of other articles on the same topic. The “related articles” feature, which will roll out widely in the U.S. after months of testing, is part of Facebook’s strategy to limit the damage of false news without censoring those posts."

5. 🌍🌎🌏 Chaos and order in a changing world

"The realities of population, resources, technology, and capital assure a decisive global role for an involved America and a militarily engaged Europe. It will not, however, come about without an agreed strategic and political concept."

6. 👸 It’s official: LuAnn and Tom file for divorce

It's with great sadness that Tom & I agreed to divorce. We care for each other very much, hope you respect our privacy during this sad time!

8. 👶 Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation?

"More comfortable online than out partying, post-Millennials are safer, physically, than adolescents have ever been. But they’re on the brink of a mental-health crisis. The more time teens spend looking at screens, the more likely they are to report symptoms of depression."

9. 👻 Google offered $30 billion to acquire Snapchat

"It's unclear how formal the discussions these insiders say happened may have been, but Snap and Google have long been close. Informal discussions between companies are frequent in the tech world, especially surrounding major events, like an initial public offering or a large round of fundraising."

10. 🏛 Poll: Trump Approval Hits New Low
