The Keystone oil spill is history repeating itself. And it’ll happen again. And again.
On Thursday, Nov. 16, around 210,000 gallons of oil escaped from the Keystone pipeline in South Dakota. The spill happened near the town of Amherst.

Keystone XL Opponents On 210,000-Gallon Spill: We Warned You
In April 2016, just five months after President Barack Obama proposal to build the Keystone XL pipeline, the existing Keystone pipeline leaked 17,000 gallons of oil onto private land in southeastern South Dakota.

Everything We Know About the Truck Tesla Will Unveil Tonight

Inside the First Church of Artificial Intelligence
Anthony Levandowski makes an unlikely prophet. Dressed Silicon Valley-casual in jeans and flanked by a PR rep rather than cloaked acolytes, the engineer known for self-driving cars—and triggering a notorious lawsuit—could be unveiling his latest startup instead of laying the foundations for a new religion. But he is doing just that. Artificial intelligence has already inspired billion-dollar companies, far-reaching research programs, and scenarios of both transcendence and doom. Now Levandowski is creating its first church.More From This EditionBeejoli ShahFacebook

The New York attack was labeled ‘terrorism.’ The Texas shooting wasn’t. Here’s why
(CNN)A man in a rented pickup truck mows down people on a busy bicycle path near the World Trade Center. Eight people are killed, and the attack is almost immediately called an act of terror.It's understandable that the New York truck attack -- the deadliest terror attack in New York since 9/11 -- was called terrorism.
