WASHINGTON — A well-known political renegade confronted the governor of Texas on Wednesday, jabbing an angry, accusatory finger at the political establishment he said is the reason Americans are once again grappling with the aftermath of another deadly school shooting.

Greg Abbott, interrupted a news conference in Uvalde, Tex., where state officials were briefing reporters on the previous day's unspea
The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits fell more than expected last week as the labor market remains tight amid strong demand for workers despite rising interest rates and tightening financial conditions.

More than 40 Democratic members of Congress are asking Google to stop what they see as the unnecessary collection and retention of people's location data, arguing the information could be used to identify women seeking abortions.
