OBAMA: 'There's a pattern' of Republicans running the economy 'into the ground' and Democrats having to 'come back and clean things up'
Pablo Martinez Monsivais/AP Former President Barack Obama pushed back on Republicans attempts to take credit for recent economic strength during a speech Monday. "So when you hear all this talk about economic miracles right now, remember who started it," Obama said. Obama also made the argument that Democrats in general are forced to "clean up" after Republicans hurt the economy. "I do think it's interesting, I just hope people notice that every time there's a pattern where they run things into the ground and we have to come back and clean things up," he said. While a majority of recessions since 1950 began while a Republican was president, it's hard to pin an economic downturn just on a president's — or one party's — policies at the time. Former President Barack Obama once again disputed Republicans' attempts to take credit for the US economy's recent strength. Obama, speaking at a midterm-election rally in Nevada, said Monday that President Donald Trump and the GOP should recognize just how long the current economy recovery has been going on and when the recovery began.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Inside the Trump 'MAGA' hat factorySee Also:'He's going to cash out': Joe Scarborough says he doesn't think Trump will run for reelection in 2020'All Americans should recoil from the president's praise for a violent assault': White House Correspondents' Association condemns Trump's praise of lawmaker who body-slammed journalistTop Senate Democrat accuses Trump of being too 'soft' on Saudi Arabia because of his business ties to the kingdomSEE ALSO: Trump is already backtracking on his promise for a 'very major tax cut' before the midterms

All the atrocities Saudi Arabia committed before outrage over Jamal Khashoggi's death reached a fever pitch
Ulet Ifansasti/Getty Images The disappearance and death of journalist and Saudi critic Jamal Khashoggi has thrust Saudi Arabia back into a global spotlight that centers directly on the Kingdom's troubled human-rights record. And because Khashoggi once enjoyed a level of proximity to the Saudi royal court, he was particularly outspoken about the Saudi leadership's worst impulses and its aversion to dissent. Khashoggi was last seen alive on surveillance video captured October 2 outside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey. He had arrived to retrieve documentation for a planned wedding to his Turkish fiancée Hatice Cengiz. Despite implications that suggest Khashoggi was targeted and killed by his own government, the Saudis have asserted that he died in a physical struggle with Saudi agents, not long after he entered the consulate. During the early morning hours of October 20 local time in Saudi Arabia, the Kingdom announced its official admission that Khashoggi is dead. The matter did fresh damage to Saudi Arabia's credibility, in part because the Kingdom had floated conflicting explanations about Khashoggi's fate for nearly three weeks. The incident has sparked a global outcry. Some US lawmakers have called for sanctions against Saudi Arabia, while government leaders, companies and private investors have pulled away from the Kingdom until more is known about the circumstances of Khashoggi's death. But Saudi Arabia has faced criticism for human-rights abuses in the past. The Saudi-led coalition in Yemen has led to the deaths of thousands of civilians. The Kingdom has been implicated as a sponsor of terrorist organizations, it has been accused of playing a role in some of the worst terror attacks in history, and its practice of jailing and publicly punishing activists has brought it to the brink of diplomatic crisis. Here are all the atrocities Saudi Arabia committed long before the outrage over Jamal Khashoggi’s death began.Funding global terrorism Associated Press Perhaps most notably, the Saudi government is believed to be linked to the September 11, 2001 attacks on the US. Fifteen of the 19 hijackers aboard commercial flights that either crashed or flew into the World Trade Center towers in New York were Saudi citizens, and the plot was orchestrated by al-Qaida leader Osama Bin Laden, who was the son of a prominent Saudi millionaire construction magnate with close ties to the Saudi royal family. In 2016, a report on the attacks by the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities found that some of the hijackers received assistance and financial support from individuals connected to the Saudi government, including members of the royal family. Leaked diplomatic cables reveal deep connections between Saudi Arabia and global terror groups. In 2010, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned that Saudi Arabia remained "a critical financial support base" for some Islamist terror organizations, including Al-Qaida and the Taliban. "Donors in Saudi Arabia constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide," Clinton said. In this respect, funding for terror groups happens indirectly, partly funneled via donors who set up front companies to receive money from government-sanctioned charities. According to another leaked cable, the US intelligence community suggested that one of the largest Islamic terror groups in Asia, Lashkar-e-Tayyiba (LT), may have leaned on a person connected to an alias of Lashkar-e-Tayyiba called Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JUD). According to the US State Department cable, the JUD official "forwarded JUD donation receipts to a probable LT front company in Saudi Arabia." An LT official there is believed to have "acted as a front for moving LT funds," the cable said, citing intelligence reporting. Lashkar-e-Tayyiba was behind the 2008 terror attack in Mumbai, India, a series of 12 coordinated shooting and bombing attacks across Mumbai that killed 172 people and injured many more. According to one of the cables, Clinton credited the Saudi capital of Riyadh for its "increasingly aggressive efforts to disrupt al-Qa'ida's access to funding from Saudi sources," but said the country had "taken only limited action to disrupt fundraising" for the Taliban and Lashkar-e-Tayyiba. Restricting freedom of speech and independent media Carsten Koall/Getty Images Saudi Arabia has consistently ranked low on press freedom indexes, and currently ranks 169th out of 180 countries in the 2018 World Press Freedom Index. Saudi Arabia does not allow any independent media, and it attempts to censor its citizens online and offline. Journalists there are subjected to scrutiny, and language deemed critical of the government can lead to detention under the country's counterterrorism laws. Journalists also face the threat of public punishment and even death. In 2012, Saudi blogger Raif Badawi was charged with "violating Islamic values and propagating liberal thought," and sentenced to 10 years in prison, 1,000 lashes, and fined 1 million Riyals, which amounts to about $266,000, the US Commission on International Religious Freedom said. In August, Saudi Arabia contemplated a death sentence for activist Israa al-Ghomgham, who documented political demonstrations in the country's Eastern Province. She could face execution by sword, and her final hearing is set for October 28. And the Saudi activist Omar Abdulaziz, a 27-year-old Canadian political refugee who hosts a satirical news show, told Business Insider in August that Saudi authorities arrested members of his family back home to pressure him into ending his program, which is often critical of the Saudi royal family. Saudi agents even bugged his phone and tracked his movements in an effort to intimidate him. Jailing human-rights activists Alex Wong/Getty Images Saudi Arabia has been known to detain human-rights activists, sometimes without formally charging them with a crime. Some of these detentions are kept secret. Earlier this year, Saudi Arabia arrested scores of activists — most of whom had campaigned ahead of an official rule change that allowed women to drive. Some of the activists said the arrests were an attempt by Saudi leadership to stifle dissent and silence anyone who may seek to take credit for the Kingdom's decision to lift the ban. The award-winning women's rights campaigner Samar Badawi was among those who were arrested. She is best-known for challenging the country's restrictive male guardianship laws, which prevent women from traveling, studying, or making important life choices without a man's permission. Badawi is the sister of jailed activist Raif Badawi. She had previously been detained for her advocacy and was banned from traveling. Her arrest prompted a concerned tweet from Canada's foreign ministry, which asked Saudi Arabia to "immediately release" her and the other activists. That move led to swift diplomatic retaliation from Saudi Arabia. The Kingdom expelled Canada's ambassador. It froze new trade, suspended flights, recalled thousands of students, barred its citizens from receiving medical care in Canada, and began dumping Canada's assets.

China is about to open the world's longest sea bridge. It cost $20 billion and is 20 times as long as the Golden Gate Bridge.
Bobby Yip/Reuters After nine years of construction and controversy, China is set to officially unveil the world's longest sea bridge on Tuesday at a ceremony in Hong Kong. At more than 34 miles long, the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge is part of a master plan to create a global science and technology hub by connecting two Chinese territories, Hong Kong and Macau (the world's largest gambling center), to nine nearby cities. With an economic output of $1.5 trillion, the new mega-region — known as the Greater Bay Area — is positioned to rival Silicon Valley. The plan also includes the construction of an $11 billion bullet train, which opened in September. The bridge is expected to open to traffic on Wednesday, though only certain vehicles — shuttles, freight cars, and private cars with permits — are allowed to cross. Pedestrians and bicyclists are prohibited. While some have criticized the structure as a waste of taxpayer dollars, others tout its ability to connect up to 70 million people in the region. Take a look at its remarkable design below.The $20 billion structure is 20 times as long as the Golden Gate Bridge. Vincent Yu/AP The title of world's largest sea bridge previously belonged to the Jiaozhou Bay Bridge, which stretches 26.3 miles. Vincent Yu/AP Source: BBC The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge is designed to last for more than a century, with the capacity to withstand major storms and earthquakes. Bobby Yip/Reuters The structure should hold up in the face of 211 mph winds. That claim was put to the test in September, when Typhoon Mangkhut swept through Hong Kong, destroying roofs, shattering windows, and toppling trees.

The best seasons to get married in, according to wedding planners
iStockThere are so many things to think about when it comes to planning a wedding. How many people will come? What venue will you choose? What food will you serve? But before you can answer any of those questions, you probably want to decide when the big day is going to be. According to wedding planners, there are actually better times of the year to get married than others — it all depends on what your priorities are. INSIDER spoke to Lisa Kahn, owner of Lisa Kahn Events in Southern California, Renny Pedersen, owner of Chicago's Bliss Weddings and Events, and Tessa Brand, owner of Southern California-based Tessa Lyn Events, to figure out what the best seasons are to get married in.If you want comfortable weather, the best season is probably autumn. iStock The problem with searching for the best seasons weather-wise is that weather is very location-specific, Renny Pedersen told INSIDER. The good news? There is one season that the wedding planners all agree is usually the best: autumn. "In Chicago, I would say the best times for people to get married are either September or October in the fall because the weather is always nice," Pedersen said. "September is probably the best time because it's on that cusp of the end of summer. You can still have a summery feel, but if you really want to have a fall feel, you can still do a transitional fall look as well. The weather is always great. It's not too hot, it's not cold, and it's not snowing yet." Both Kahn and Brand agreed, saying that autumn is a great time for weddings in Southern California as well. "I think the perfect time to get married is September and October in Southern California because you have great sunsets, predictable weather, and usually the temperature is right in the middle, which is where you want it," Brand told INSIDER.    Even if you choose an autumn wedding, you'll want to research local weather patterns. teksomolika/iStock If you're in a different area and you're not sure when the "good" weather is happening, Kahn recommended doing a little research. "I would say always talk to a planner," she told INSIDER. "Weather apps are hard. I would say also look at the history of weather in the city that you're getting married in — like in an almanac — and see what the weather has been like in previous years. Every city and every state has different weather patterns, but the patterns are usually similar."     But, autumn weddings can get pricey. Shutterstock However, all three wedding planners noted that booking a wedding during those temperate normally means that venues, planners, photographers, videographers (and everything else) may be a little more expensive since many people want to get married during that time.

From "The Crown" to "Game of Thrones," here's a look at the 10 most expensive TV shows of all time based on per-episode cost. "Camelot" didn't last long, but at $7 million per episode, it sure was expensive. Starz The Emmy-nominated costume drama "Camelot" on Starz, which focused on the legend of King Arthur and had a star-studded cast, cost about $7 million per episode, according to The Wall Street Journal.  The network announced the series' end with the following statement: "Due to significant production challenges, Starz has decided not to exercise the option for subsequent seasons of 'Camelot' with our production partners GK-tv, Octagon Films and Take 5 Productions." The Wachowski sisters' "Sens8" on Netflix cost an estimated $9 million per episode. Murray Close/Netflix The Wachowski sisters' ambitious Netflix series, "Sense8," cost an estimated $9 million per episode, according to The Verge, thanks to its grand scope and lush production. The show was canceled after two seasons.   Popular fantasy series "Game of Thrones" costs an average of $10 million per episode.

Scientists have found new evidence that tiny pieces of plastic might be accumulating in your poop
Bobby Yip/Reuters Austrian researchers have found evidence that tiny pieces of plastic can be found in human poop. Though the study analyzed the stool samples of only eight people, all of them tested positive for plastic. Plastic is harmful to marine life, but its effect on humans is still unknown. The World Health Organization launched an investigation earlier this year after a separate study found plastic in 90% of water bottles tested. A group of Austrian researchers have found evidence that microplastics — extremely small pieces of plastic beads, fibers, or fragments — accumulate in human feces. Scientists from the Environment Agency Austria and the Medical University of Vienna analyzed the poop samples of eight participants from all over the world, including Italy, Japan, Poland, the Netherlands, Russian, the United Kingdom, Finland, and Austria.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: 3 surprising ways humans are still evolvingSee Also:The 75 most candid photos of Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Prince William, and Kate Middleton from 2017 and 2018All the TV shows that have been canceled recentlySodaStream built a 1000-foot-long contraption called the 'Holy Turtle' to collect plastic from the oceanSEE ALSO: Bottled water from major brands like Aquafina, Nestle, and Dasani contains tiny plastic particles — here's what that does to your body SEE ALSO: SodaStream built a 1000-foot-long contraption called the 'Holy Turtle' to collect plastic from the ocean

Buying enough Mega Millions tickets to cover every possible combination sounds like a surefire way to win — but there are 3 major problems with that plan
REUTERS/Mike Segar The Mega Millions jackpot is up to $1.6 billion. The jackpot is so massive, at least before taxes, that it would theoretically be profitable to buy enough tickets to cover every one of the 302,575,350 possible combinations of Mega Millions numbers. There are, however, serious logistical problems with such a scheme, and there's a risk of splitting the jackpot and losing money, especially if someone else tries the same thing. At the time of this writing, the headline Mega Millions jackpot is up to $1.6 billion, and the lump sum cash grand prize is estimated at $904 million. In a Mega Millions drawing, five numbered balls are drawn from a drum with 70 balls, and a final bonus ball is drawn from a drum with 25 balls. If you match all six numbers, you win the full jackpot, and there are smaller fixed prizes awarded for matching some subset of the numbers.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: 4 lottery winners who lost it allSee Also:The Mega Millions jackpot is at a record-high $1.6 billion — here's which states spend the most buying lottery ticketsPowerball and Mega Millions have a combined jackpot over $1 billion — here are the first 2 things the winners should doDisappointing stories reveal what it's really like to win the lotterySEE ALSO: Scientists say winning the lottery does make people feel better about life — even though decades of evidence suggests otherwise

The Central American caravan has swelled to an estimated 7,000 migrants. Despite Trump's threats, it's heading north toward the US border.
Associated Press/Moises Castillo The migrant caravan that trekked through the Northern Triangle and reached Mexico this weekend has swelled to an estimated 7,000 people, and is largely heading to the United States. President Donald Trump has raged against the caravan, pinning blame in turn on Central American governments, US asylum laws, and congressional Democrats. Despite Mexico's efforts to process the migrants as refugees and halt their travel, many crossed the Guatemala-Mexico border over the weekend illegally, and decided to continue northward. The ever-growing caravan of Central American migrants swelled on Sunday to an estimated 7,000 people, who are largely dedicated to traveling north in the hopes of reaching the United States. The caravan first set out from Honduras on October 13 as a group of 160 migrants, but grew to a massive group after word spread. The migrants have told media outlets they're fleeing their home countries due to crippling poverty and widespread violence.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Inside the Trump 'MAGA' hat factorySee Also:Trump joked about a reporter getting body-slammed as the world waits to hear about the fate of missing Saudi journalist Jamal KhashoggiTop Republican slams Trump's 'clampdown' on intelligence about missing journalist Khashoggi and calls on him to take a standTrump threatens to summon military and wreck Mexico trade deal amid burgeoning migrant crisis

11 details you may have missed on Sunday's episode of 'The Walking Dead'
AMC Warning: There are spoilers ahead for Sunday's episode of "The Walking Dead," "Warning Signs." The mystery of the missing Saviors may have come to an end on Sunday's episode of "The Walking Dead," but a larger war may be brewing up underneath the surface between Rick and Maggie. The two have very different ways of dealing with problems in their respective communities.  Plus, Father Gabriel looks like he's going to get whisked away by Anne on that mystery helicopter. From the Oceanside men to another look at Hershel's watch, there were a lot of  nods to previous seasons this week. Keep reading to see what you may have missed.Sunday's opening of "The Walking Dead" teases a threatening sign, "Final Warning." AMC As Justin reanimates into one of the undead, pay attention to the screen and you'll notice the ominous message. After watching the episode, it seems to be a message to the Saviors from the Oceanside women. There were also some thoughts this may be a message from upcoming villains, The Whisperers.  If you've been watching the season closely, this isn't the first time we've seen this message.  You can see the same message very briefly on the show's new opening credits. AMC Showrunner Angela Kang said there are a lot of callbacks and Easter eggs waiting to be found in the new opening. Not all of them are nods to past events on the show like Carl and Glenn's death.  The noose hanging from the barn and the words "Final Warning" all hinted at moments to come on season nine.  It's also worth noting that we've seen writing on walls like this before on the show. During season five when the group went back to Noah's community, a warning sign could briefly be seen behind Michonne saying, "Wolves Not Far." That sign teased the eventual introduction of a gruesome group who referred to themselves as the Wolves, who attacked Alexandria.  Rick heads down the stairs at the episode’s start and touches a panel with two handprints. Gene Page/AMC Did your eyes tear up as you realized Rick took the old deck from his house at Alexandria with his children's handprints and hung it up on a wall? Carl spent his good last day making sure that he spent some time with his little sister before saying goodbye to Michonne and Rick.  The entire scene with Rick is even more emotional when you think about how he was going from room to room checking in on all of his loved ones before he began the day. Carl was the last one he passed before starting his day.

How the United States could cope if it lost the next war
John Moore/Getty Images America could lose its next war because it has become weaker politically, despite its military dominance. In the past, when the US faced external threats, the nation came together — in today's political climate, it might not be able to.  If the United States or one of its allies were attacked, the party out of power might use that to discredit the party in power, rather than joining with it to confront the threat. Last week, I argued that while the US military, the Pentagon, and most national security experts expect that the United States will always win the wars it is forced to fight, America could in fact lose one if an astute enemy capitalizes on the nation's weaknesses and vulnerabilities. I sketched out three ways that might happen: if an enemy found a way to drag out a war past the limits of American patience; if a nuclear-armed enemy invaded another nation and then dug in; or if an adversary used what security experts call "gray zone" aggression to present the United States with a fait accompli.

'Fortnite' could be teaching us the wrong lessons about how to be good citizens
"Fortnite" is one of the most popular video games in the world, but it might not be the best for democracy. Nicholas Tampio, a political theorist and associate professor of political science at Fordham University, shares why the game teaches children and gamers wrong lessons about how to function in society.  Political philosophers have long recognized the influence that games can have on the body politic.  French political theorist Alexis de Tocqueville warned that the greatest threat to democracy is "individualism," a disposition to isolate oneself from everyone other than a small circle of like-minded people. When people play "Fortnite," they enter their own little world. Tampio says this could train children to think primarily of themselves and maybe a small circle of friends, emphasizing individualism and survival. In recognition of the fact that "Fortnite" has quickly become one of the most popular video games in the world — one played by more than 125 million players — I decided to play the game myself in an attempt to understand its widespread appeal. As a parent and as a political theorist who focuses on education and its impact on democratic society, I couldn't help but notice how much the game seems to teach children the wrong lessons about how to function as an adult and interact with others. I came away from my "Fortnite" experience thinking that the game is raising young people to be self-centered, not good citizens.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: This company spent 10 years developing a product that allows humans to scale walls like a geckoSee Also:People used to think the internet would help democracy — but in the era of Facebook data breaches, it's seems it hasn'tHere's why Canada must prosecute returning ISIS fightersBlockchain won't make internet voting easier or safer — it could just make it worseSEE ALSO: People are hoping the Supreme Court will save American politics but they're looking in the wrong place

@JRown32 / Twitter The Baltimore Ravens comeback came up short in unbelievable fashion on Sunday.

It was the first missed extra point of Tucker's storied NFL career. The Baltimore Ravens were right where they wanted to be.

DNA tests that cost as much as $750 claim to tell you which antidepressant is best for you, but scientists say they're not worth the money
Shutterstock Several companies make DNA tests that claim to tell you how well you'll respond to certain antidepressants based on your genetic profile. Two personalized medicine companies — Assurex and Genomind — offer some of the most popular tests and work with physicians and pharmacists to provide them to patients. A chain of Albertsons pharmacies in Chicago, Philadelphia, and Boise is running a pilot program in which pharmacists can offer the Genomind test. Silicon Valley genetics testing startup Color Genomics recently began offering a similar test as part of its services. The costs of the tests range from $250 to $750, but some scientists say it's not worth the money. Around the time that 26-year-old Courtney Luk got in line at the pharmacy to pick up her 25th depression medication, she decided she'd had enough. Over the previous two years, Luk had been prescribed everything from Klonopin to Xanax to treat the anxiety and depression she'd experienced since adolescence. Nothing seemed to do the trick. One medication would make her feel numb; others seemed to make her symptoms worse.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Scientists say combining these 2 activities could be an effective way to fight depressionSee Also:Scientists studied flu cases in more than 600 cities and towns around the US — and found where flu season lasts the longestA new biotech company has raised $25 million to help unleash a 'virgin market' of psychedelic researchHow much you should walk in a week to see a major improvement to your healthSEE ALSO: 'This test is garbage': Experts and former employees allege that a Silicon Valley startup gives bogus 'cellular ages' based on a flawed blood test DON'T MISS: A controversial startup that charges $8,000 to fill your veins with young blood is opening its first clinic

There's a battle brewing over Google's $1 billion high-tech neighborhood, and it could have major privacy implications for cities
Sidewalk Labs Sidewalk Labs, the urban innovation arm of Google's parent company, Alphabet, will soon build a high-tech neighborhood along Toronto's Eastern Waterfront. The company has clashed with residents over its decision to collect data in public spaces such as intersections or park benches. Sidewalk Labs claims the data will help them improve the community, but experts worry it could be used for financial gain. In response to this criticism, the company has proposed an independent trust that might ensure the fair use of urban data. Imagine living in a city that can monitor almost everything you do in a day, from when you're stopped at a traffic light to when you've left the oven light on for too long. Then imagine that data could be shared with companies or governments in unprecedented ways. That could be the reality awaiting future residents of Quayside, a 12-acre planned neighborhood along Toronto's Eastern Waterfront. The project, which could cost up to $1 billion, is being developed by Sidewalk Labs, the urban innovation arm of Google's parent company, Alphabet. After first announcing the neighborhood in 2017, Sidewalk Labs revealed more of its plans in August, which include futuristic innovations like heated roadways built for driverless vehicles and robots that deliver mail and transport garbage through underground tunnels. See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: The 5 most extreme newborns in the animal kingdomSee Also:Saudi Arabia wants to build a $500 billion megacity that's 33 times as large as New York City.

For some Alaska Natives, the Bering Sea and an international border make it hard to go home
Valentina Koonooka and her four daughters waited four days in an airport terminal in Nome, Alaska to take a less-than-two-hour flight across the Bering Sea to visit family in Russia. For generations, residents in the area routinely crossed from island to island, moving freely across the US-Russia border.  However, in 1948 the border officially closed. In 1987, the "Ice Curtain" thawed slightly, but for transnational families, travel remains hard.  For Indigenous people crossing the Bering Strait, governments offer some initiatives, like the visa-free travel program — but it requires a formal invitation from a family member on the other side, and both Russia and the US must formally review it. And travelers can only pass through specific entry points: Anadyr or Provideniya in Russia and Nome in Alaska. A visit is limited to 90 days. After spending four days just waiting in the airport terminal in Nome, Alaska, Valentina Koonooka decided to return to her friend's apartment in Nome and cook a big, steaming pot of borscht.  Koonooka and her two daughters were awaiting a break in the weather, along with a small group of Alaska Native travelers, for a less-than-two-hour flight across the Bering Sea to visit family in Russia.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Here's what caffeine does to your body and brainSee Also:Officials are struggling to process midterm voter registrations in the South, and it's disproportionately affecting minoritiesSenator Booker blasts Trump during South Carolina debut, fueling rumors of a potential presidential runDemocrats call Trump's plan for FBI HQ near Trump's DC hotel a 'clear conflict of interest'SEE ALSO: Four Russian spy planes fly past Alaska — it's the third time this month Russian military aircraft have done so

Here's how Trader Joe's keeps its groceries so cheap
Jessica Tyler/Business Insider Trader Joe's wins over customers with its high-quality and affordable products. Selling products under a private label is one way that Trader Joe's is able to cut costs and pass along savings to the shopper. Here are some other ways that Trader Joe's keeps its prices so low.  Trader Joe's wins over customers with its affordable products. But despite how relatively low its prices are, the quality is still high.  Part of the reason is that 80% of Trader Joe's products are made for its own private label. That means the grocer is buying goods directly from the supplier, cutting out the middlemen in the supply chain that can drive up costs. Trader Joe's can pass along those savings to the shopper in turn. Another way Trader Joe's cuts costs and passes the savings on to customers is by depending on word of mouth to spread the word about its products, rather than spending a lot on marketing.  See what else Trader Joe's does to keep its prices low: Trader Joe's sells private-label products.

Apple and Google have a long way to go to catch Amazon in the smart speaker race (AMZN, KRX, GOOGL, AAPL)
Smart speakers comprise one of the fastest-growing device segments in the consumer technology market today. This growth has been driven by rapid hardware iteration in the market since Amazon’s introduction of the Echo smart speaker and the Alexa voice assistant in 2014. Despite their growing popularity, nearly half of respondents to Business Insider Intelligence’s Smart Speaker Survey still don't own a device — which presents a long runway for adoption. First Alexa was playing music and turning on the lights. Then she helped you book appointments, put together grocery lists, and try on new clothes. Now she’s letting you video chat with friends and family — and soon she’ll be able to sense how you’re feeling. Business Insider Intelligence And she’s not alone. In the years since Amazon's 2014 introduction of the Echo, smart speakers have become one of the fastest-growing device segments in the consumer technology market, and other tech giants have been iterating hardware to develop their own flagship devices — most notably the Google Home powered by Google Assistant, the Apple HomePod powered by Siri, and the Galaxy Home powered by Samsung’s Bixby.

This CEO is paying 600,000 strangers to help him build human-powered AI that's 'whole orders of magnitude better than Google'
Hive Hive is a Silicon Valley startup that's best known for its AI-powered image recognition system, with customers including NASCAR.  The dirty little secret of artificial intelligence is that it takes a lot of human labor to make it all work. But Hive embraces this. Hive pays 600,000 workers and counting to label photos, getting paid pennies in return. You won't get rich, but as Guo says, it's a simple "game" that makes you money — what other app on your phone can do that? The data gets put to use in training AI systems, at a scale that Guo says is unmatched. One of the worst-kept secrets in Silicon Valley is that it takes a whole lot of human labor to make artificial intelligence...intelligent.  The best example: When Google's reCAPTCHA pages ask you to identify street signs or storefronts in photos before you can log in, you're proving you're not a robot, sure. You're also providing valuable, human insight into what a street sign looks like, which is extremely useful data when you're trying to train a self-driving car, or a smart security camera. The whole concept was memorably lampooned in an episode last year of HBO's "Silicon Valley."See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: What marijuana looks like under the microscopeSee Also:21 job interview questions that are designed to trick youYour opinion matters.

I visited the private terminal at LAX where rich people pay upwards of $4,500 to skip the lines and pull up to their planes in BMWs, and it made me feel like a billionaire
Tanza Loudenback/Business Insider A new terminal called The Private Suite opened at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in late 2017. The Private Suite offers a $4,500-a-year base membership and costs $2,700 to use per domestic flight and $3,500 per international flight for up to four passengers. Food and drinks, a private room and bathroom, an on-site spa, and a personal chauffeur directly to your plane are included. I recently toured The Private Suite and found it accommodating and comfortable. The best part? No crowds. I didn't expect to leave The Private Suite feeling like a pampered billionaire. When I pulled into the driveway on an unusually gloomy Los Angeles morning, a man with a wide, toothy grin and a bulletproof vest emblazoned with "SECURITY" greeted me cheerily. The dichotomy caught me off guard; they'd been expecting me, he said, and the tall gates parted, revealing a modern-looking, one-story building facing the airport runway.  The Private Suite is a terminal built specifically for wealthy travelers flying in and out of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). (I'm not a wealthy traveler by any means, but the folks at The Private Suite made an exception for this story. I get the feeling they treat their paying customers with the same dutiful enthusiasm.) The independently owned and operated terminal opened in October 2017 and offers a quiet, crowd-free, luxurious space to hang out before boarding a commercial flight. As you may expect, it's not cheap. But for celebrities routinely hounded by paparazzi in the public terminals at LAX and wealthy businesspeople and families seeking solitude, it's a safe haven offering the best privacy, security, and amenities money can buy. Here's what it's like inside The Private Suite.The Private Suite is owned and operated by security firm Gavin de Becker & Associates. It's located opposite the public LAX terminals, so there's no traffic to battle. Google Maps The Private Suite accommodates travelers flying on one of the 70 commercial airlines operating at LAX.

21 job interview questions that are designed to trick you
Dmitry Smirnov/Strelka Institute/Flickr Sometimes, interview questions can be tricky or confusing. Interviewers ask them to learn more about you — including information you may have been trying to conceal.  Here's how to get around them. Savvy hiring managers can glean a ton of information about you by asking just a few, well-chosen questions. But while they may seem simple, some are actually designed to get you to reveal information you may have been trying to conceal. In other words: they're trick questions. "To uncover areas that may reflect inconsistencies, hiring managers sometimes ask these tricky questions," said Tina Nicolai, executive career coach and founder of Resume Writers' Ink. But they're not just about exposing your flaws, said Lynn Taylor, a national workplace expert and the author of "Tame Your Terrible Office Tyrant."  "Their real agenda is for your answers to ultimately paint a picture that you are the perfect fit for the job — not just on paper, but from an overall trust standpoint," Taylor said. Here are 21 common examples of tricky job interview questions, complete with advice on how to ace each one:Can you tell me about yourself? Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture and Design/Flickr Why do they ask this? They ask to determine how the candidates see themselves as it pertains to the position and how confidently they can communicate their skills. "The employer wants to hear that the candidate did their homework," Nicolai said. "If this opening answer is weak, it can send the remainder of the interview into a tailspin or cut the interview short." What makes it tricky? It can tempt you to talk about your personal life — which you shouldn't! "Most candidates are not versed in seeing this as a trick question, so they may answer by speaking from a personal perspective: 'I have three kids, I'm married, etc,'" Nicolai said. What response are they looking for? A focused answer conveying your value to the organization and department. "The employer wants to hear about your achievements, broken down into two or three succinct bullet answers that will set the tone of the interview," Nicolai said. Try this, from Nicolai: "I am known for turning around poor performance teams as a result of my innate skills in analyzing problems and seeing solutions very quickly." This statement tells the interviewer that the candidate has analytical skills, problem-solving ability, and leadership ability that enables them to turn around business performance. How would you describe yourself in one word? Strelka Institute/Flickr/Attribution License Why do they ask this? Through that one word, Taylor said employers will be able to assess your personality type, how confident you are in your self-perception, and whether your work style is a good fit for the job. What makes it tricky? This question can be a challenge, particularly early on in the interview, because you don't really know what personality type the manager is seeking. "There is a fine line between sounding self-congratulatory versus confident, and humble versus timid," Taylor said. "And people are multifaceted, so putting a short label on oneself can seem nearly impossible." What response are they looking for? Proceed cautiously. "If you know you're reliable and dedicated, but love the fact that your friends praise your clever humor, stick with the conservative route," Taylor said. If you're applying for an accounting job, the one-word descriptor should not be "creative," and if it's an art director position, you don't want it to be, "punctual," for example. "Most employers today are seeking team players that are levelheaded under pressure, upbeat, honest, reliable, and dedicated," Taylor said.  How does this position compare to others you are applying for? Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture and Design/Flickr Why do they ask this? They're basically asking: "Are you applying for other jobs?" And they want to see how you speak about other companies or positions that hold your interest — and how honest you are. What makes it tricky? If you respond, "This is the only job I'm applying for," your interviewer will worry. Very few job applicants apply to only one job, so they may assume you're being dishonest. But if you're too effusive about your other prospects, however, the hiring manager may see you as unattainable and pass. "Speaking negatively about other jobs or employers isn't good either," Nicolai added. What response are they looking for? Go with this response, Nicolai said: "There are several organizations with whom I am interviewing, however, I've not yet decided the best fit for my next career move." "This is positive and protects the competitors," Nicolai said. "No reason to pit companies or to brag."

These 10 brands are in the best position to avoid the retail apocalypse and win over consumers of the future
Hollis Johnson/Business Insider The 2018 FutureBrand Index ranked the brands that are best prepared for the future, based on the companies' corporate purpose combined with people's experiences of it.  While the retail apocalypse doesn't seem to be slowing down, some brands are a lot more likely than others to survive it.  Disney and Nike are among the consumer-oriented brands most likely to thrive in the future. See what other companies made FutureBrand's list. The retail apocalypse doesn't seem to be slowing down, with more than 3,800 stores expected to close across the United States this year. But, some brands are a lot more likely than others to thrive with the consumers of the future.  The 2018 FutureBrand Index looked at the world's 100 most future-proof companies 10 years after the Great Recession. And while it seems as if companies like Google and Amazon are unstoppable, the FutureBrand Index argues that they may not be the brands best poised to thrive in the future. Rather, long-established and reputable brands are leading the way.  "The most future proofed companies are not defined by their age, their sector, their tech or data savvy-ness, but by their ability to consistently align the totality of the experiences they create with their wider corporate purpose," FutureBrand writes in its report.   To asses which brands are the most ready for future success, FutureBrand looked at each company's corporate purpose combined with the experience it provides for consumers, explaining that these are the two factors driving profit and positive growth.  The report looked at 100 brands in total. See which consumer goods and services companies are the strongest, according to the report: 10. Nestle Thomson Reuters Rank in top 100: 24 9. Amazon Amazon Rank in top 100: 21 8.

Scientists are starting to learn how e-cigs like the Juul can impact your health — and the results are troubling
Shutterstock A handful of recent studies are beginning to reveal the health effects of e-cigarette use, and they are not all positive. Some evidence has suggested that e-cigs may help adults quit smoking conventional cigarettes, but other studies have found that they might encourage teens to start. Regulators and health experts are particularly concerned about a device called the Juul, which packs the same nicotine content per pod as a pack of cigarettes. Despite capturing more than 70% of the e-cig market and being recently valued at $15 billion, Juul faces a growing backlash from the FDA and scientists who say the company intentionally marketed to teens. In studies of e-cigarettes that don't include Juul, researchers have found evidence of toxic metals like lead in e-cig vapor. Evidence also suggests that vaping may be linked with an increased risk of heart attacks. Smoking kills. No other habit has been so strongly tied to death. In addition to inhaling burned tobacco and tar, smokers breathe in toxic metals like cadmium and beryllium, as well as metallic elements like nickel and chromium — all of which accumulate naturally in the leaves of the tobacco plant.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: E-cigarette explodes in man's pocket leaving him with second-degree burnsSee Also:Most rehabs don't offer a science-backed treatment for drug addiction.

West Texas is being engulfed in the oil boom, and it's struggling with an onslaught of problems
Nick Oxford/Reuters The unprecedented oil boom is engulfing West Texas, extending to areas that drilling hasn't touched before. As communities welcome the jobs and the new business, they're struggling with an onslaught of problems. The boom is brining air pollution, oil spills, groundwater loss, and contamination — none of which the state is tracking or policing aggressively. Drilling booms have come and gone in this oil town for nearly a century. But the frenzy gripping it now is different. Overwhelming. Drilling rigs tower over suburban backyards. There's a housing crunch so severe that rents are up 30% in the last year alone. Tax-averse city officials raised fees this spring just to keep basic services afloat. This boom is engulfing the rest of West Texas, too, extending to areas that drilling hasn't touched before. As communities welcome the jobs and the new business, they're struggling with an onslaught of problems that include spikes in traffic accidents and homelessness.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: 7 outdoor adventures that are worth the hikeSee Also:The Trump administration's love of fossil-fuels and disregard for the climate began with ObamaUS officials have been keeping migrants from crossing bridges — and now Mexico is doing the sameKavanaugh may soon hear a case about LGBT discrimination that could upend civil rightsSEE ALSO: The Trump administration's love of fossil-fuels and disregard for the climate began with Obama SEE ALSO: Trump helped mislead investors about his involvement in real estate projects — and made money when projects failed

Battle of the big phones: How Google's new Pixel 3 XL compares to the jumbo iPhone XS Max (AAPL, GOOG, GOOGL)
Drew Angerer/Getty Images It's the battle of the big smartphones.  Two tech powerhouses, Apple and Google, have released extra-large devices in the past month: the iPhone XS Max and the Pixel 3 XL, respectively.  While the two phones have some key differences, they also have a lot in common, most notably their large size.  So if you're someone who prefers a big phone — after all, a larger phone means a larger display — it may be a tough choice this fall.  Here's how the iPhone XS Max and Pixel 3 XL compare: The iPhone XS Max has a slightly larger screen than the Pixel 3 XL. Jack Taylor/Getty Images The iPhone XS Max has a 6.5-inch OLED display, while the Pixel 3 XL has a 6.3-inch OLED display.  The iPhone XS Max and Pixel 3 XL have nearly identical dimensions otherwise — except when it comes to weight. Hollis Johnson/Business Insider The iPhone XS Max is 157.7 mm tall and 77.4 mm wide, while the Pixel 3 XL is 158 mm tall and 76.7 mm wide. But the iPhone XS Max is significantly heavier than the Pixel 3 XL: it weighs 208 grams, while the Pixel 3 XL clocks in at 184 grams.  The iPhone XS Max comes in more storage options compared to the Pixel 3 XL. Spencer Platt/Getty Images You can get an iPhone XS Max in three storage options: 64 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB. By contrast, the Pixel 3 comes in only two storage options, 64 GB and 128 GB. That said, Google has one-upped Apple with its cloud storage, at least when it comes to your pictures: Google offers free unlimited storage in Google Photos, while Apple makes you pay for iCloud storage if you want more than 5 GB.
