Elon Musk is facing off against a Brazilian judge Musk claims is on a vendetta against free speech. The conflict began Saturday when X said it was “forced by court decisions” to block certain accounts in Brazil and also banned from revealing details of the blocking order, according to Reuters.

But in a series of posts on X, Musk said he planned to defy Supreme Court Justice Alexandre de Moraes. “This aggressive censorship appears to violate the law & will of… Read More “Elon Musk Stands Up to Brazilian Judge Trying to Censor Speech on X – ‘He Should Resign or Be Impeached’”

The stock market largely took a stronger-than-expected March job report in stride, but an economist warned on Friday that the data could dampen hopes of rate cuts. Neutral Rates: The U.S. payrolls gain in March suggests the economy is re-accelerating, said former Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers in a Bloomberg interview last week. Considering other factors such as the “epic” loosening in financial conditions, “it seems to me the evidence is overwhelming that the neutral rate is far higher than the Fed supposes,” he said. A neutral monetary policy rate is one which is neither stimulatory nor… Read More “Larry Summers Says There’s Still A ‘Real Possibility’ Of A Fed Move Higher: ‘Would Be An Inappropriate Act To Cut Rates’ At June Meeting”

GLENDALE, Ariz. — NC State has come a long way since graduate forward Casey Morsell, the Wolfpack’s longest-tenured starter under coach Kevin Keatts, arrived in Raleigh.

The Wolfpack made the NCAA Tournament a year ago, which marked the team’s first appearance in the Big Dance since Keatt’s first year in Raleigh. NC State followed that up with a rocky regular season this year, but it put together a remarkable run th… Read More “NC State hopes Final Four run gave it something to build off next season”
