Boris Johnson's claims of 'side deals' are 'pure rubbish', EU says

New Tory leader said no-deal Brexit would be less painful because of ‘side deals’ with Brussels

Boris Johnson’s claims that crashing out of the EU with no deal would be less painful because of a series of “side deals” that the UK has already done with Brussels have been dismissed as rubbish by the EU.

Johnson made the assertion several times during his campaign to be the new leader of the Conservative party and EU officials are now concerned that this was being spun as a new post-Theresa May “truth” after the claims were repeated by supporters in recent days.

Twitch Studio, the company’s streaming software for new users, is now in open beta
Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Twitch Studio — the broadcasting software the live-streaming site debuted back in August to a select group of users — is now open to the public. (Though it is, for the moment, PC-only.) Developed as an easier way to stream and aimed at users who are just starting out on Twitch, the software is both functional and aesthetically appealing. It’s for people who have a vague desire to broadcast themselves to the internet but aren’t quite sure how to get started. Live-streaming is technically quite difficult: it’s live video production, which requires an understanding of the occasionally arcane ecosystem of software and plugins that make it possible. Like every other technologically difficult thing, it also requires a willingness to read a ton of forum comments in search of answers to troubleshoot whatever weird issue you’re having. Twitch Studio is designed to get rid of all that. It’s made to automatically detect things like your camera, microphone, and monitor resolution, and it comes with a host of templates and alerts that’ll help you seem professional, even if you’re not quite sure yet what you’re doing. That’s great because faking it till you make it is a timeworn strategy for a reason: it works. If you’re a Windows user, you can download the beta here.

Student journalists at Northwestern set off an online uproar after they apologized for basic reporting practices
Chris Walker/Chicago Tribune/Tribune News Service via Getty Images Student journalists at Northwestern University published an editorial apologizing for basic reporting practices, including posting photographs of protests and using the campus directory to look up students' phone numbers. The editorial spread across Twitter on Monday, sparking an uproar from many working journalists who argued that such reporting techniques are considered crucial to the profession. Some criticized the editorial as an instance of political correctness run amok — others decried the social media pile-on over a simple student journalism mistake. The Daily Northwestern's editor-in-chief responded to the backlash in a Twitter thread, acknowledging that the editorial "over-corrected" in certain ways, but adding that the newspaper was trying to show empathy to marginalized groups on campus. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

DIGITAL IDENTITY AND THE FUTURE OF BANKING: How digital identity can slash the costs of onboarding and regulatory compliance by up to 70% for banks

Business Insider Intelligence offers even more insights like this with our brand new Banking coverage. Subscribe today to receive industry-changing banking news and analysis to your inbox. Disruptive digital-only banks, innovative regulations, and shifting consumer demands have made today's banking digital-first — but the benefits of digitization are being held back by identity verification challenges. Identity verification underlies many of the core processes associated with financial services, with banks required to subject their customers to strict identity checks, both to protect those users' finances and to meet regulatory compliance demands. There have been a plethora of efforts aimed at streamlining identity verification online, but these attempts have largely failed to address the issue in its entirety. For example, customers are often required to create unwieldy passwords and verification details that can be difficult to keep track of to access their accounts. Not only have these efforts created new points of friction for users, but they're also expensive for banks, with each password reset costing up to $70 according to Forrester Research estimates.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:Goldman Sachs said it doesn't make credit decisions based on gender, but the allegations against Apple Card could damage its performance regardlessJury orders Wells Fargo to pay USAA $200 million in damagesMost payments stakeholders believe the US is behind on implementing faster payments

Chang's biography says she was part of a panel on drones in humanitarian relief efforts convened by the U.N. But there's no record backing up her claim and a source with knowledge of the matter said she was not part of the "panel," which was a single public roundtable. Chang says in her official biography that she is as an "alumna" of Harvard Business School. But according to the university, Chang attended a seven-week course in 2016, and does not hold a degree from the institution. Her biography on the State Department website says she is a "graduate" of a program at the Army War College. But the program she attended was a four-day seminar on national security, according to the college. Chang does not cite any undergraduate degree in her biography, but her LinkedIn account mentions the University of the Nations, an unaccredited Christian school with volunteer teachers that says it has 600 locations "on all continents."

Surveillance apps, partying, and shootings: 9 ways that being a teen has changed over the past decade
Shutterstock Since 2010, being a teen has turned into a gradually more online existence that has spawned an entirely new generation of activists, idols, and pressures.  Along with unprecedented connectivity, teens have faced turbulent political environments alongside widespread violence and tragedy.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Teens in 2010 were some of the first to be fully steeped in a digitally forward culture of reality television, Apple devices, and social networking. Ten years later, it seems that the hold of technology and popular culture has only gotten stronger.  As the decade winds down, influencers have replaced movie stars, parents can track their kid's every move, and some of the most well-known political activists spurring international movements aren't old enough to drink.  See how being a teen has changed over the past decade. Memories aren't captured on a digital camera, but taken and immediately shared on a smartphone. Mauricio Santana/Getty Images The population of teens who owned smartphones skyrocketed through the decade, and the devices became critical to teenage life as social networks hosted most of the content teens were sharing with the world. By 2018, 80% of teens got their first smartphone between the ages of 11 and 13 and spent as many as seven hours on the phone each day. Burning CD mixes became a thing of the past as digital and streaming formats became the norm. REUTERS/Christian Hartmann/File Photo Digital streaming service Spotify exploded with regular users into the 2010s, gathering more than 230 million users by 2019 and effectively sealing the fate of CDs among teenagers. Talking about mental health has become easier and more valued online and in school. Aipon / Shutterstock A quarter of Gen Z, or those born after 1997, responded to a 2018 Business Insider survey that they would cast their generation's mood as "stressed," and 17% pointed to feeling "depressed." A cultural shift to embracing open conversations on mental health emerged through the 2010s, popping up in teens' daily life in the form of memes on social media and efforts from high schools seeking to develop mental health education and support programs.
