Dog has existential crisis after finally catching his tail
There's a core spiritual question for dogs who chase their tails: What, exactly, are they after? Twitter user @omw2innisfree's friend's dog, Max, recently experienced something of a spiritual crisis after finally capturing his own tail. Pay attention to the look on Max's face after he finally holds onto it. SEE ALSO: Labrador Retriever named the best doggo What exactly could Max be thinking? It's like he landed on the emotional jackpot of a dog's life — complete and total tail entrapment — and now he doesn't know what to do with his riches. Does he bite his tail? Squeeze his tail? Nuzzle his tail? What was the point of capturing his tail? Perhaps the whole tail-chasing thing was about the journey, not the end destination.

Apple plans to bring more iOS features to the Mac
It sure looks like Apple is moving closer and closer to its goal of merging its iOS and macOS ecosystems.  Apple has plans to bring more iOS features, including Screen Time and Siri Shortcuts, to macOS later in 2019, according a new report from 9to5Mac. The update will likely be shown off at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June as part of macOS 10.15, according to the report. SEE ALSO: iOS 13 will bring a huge dark mode update to iPhone With the update, Apple's Screen Time features, which lets you set limits on how long you use certain apps, would be accessible from System Preferences on macOS. The feature is reported to work the same way on the Mac as it does on iOS — when you've reached your predetermined time limit, you'll get a notification and the option to close the app.  Read more...More about Tech, Apple, Ios, Macos, and Screen Time

4/20 isn't just a 'stoner' holiday. It's an opportunity for activism.
At my college, 4/20 was marijuana Christmas. Every year at that time, people would go outside, put on their worst possible pants, turn up the jam band radio stations (String Cheese Incident, baby!!!), and smoke up. As much as I loved seeing my fellow classmates roll down grassy hills, the 4/20 of 2019 has become more than a traditional stoner's holiday. It's also an incredible opportunity to advocate on behalf of legal marijuana, whether for medical or recreational purposes. Want proof? Just browse through some of the material under the #Happy420 Twitter hashtag. With multiple Democratic presidential candidates now pushing for the full or partial legalization of marijuana, 2019 has already been a banner year for the legal weed movement.

The CIA says that China’s security agencies provided funds for Huawei: report
Earlier this year, the Central Intelligence Agency informed its counterparts in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the UK that Chinese technology company Huawei has received funding from the Central National Security Commission of the Communist Party of China, the People’s Liberation Army, and a “third branch of the Chinese state intelligence network,” according to The Times. The paper cites an anonymous source in the UK that says that details were shared with “only the most senior UK officials,” which that the CIA “awarded a strong but not cast-iron classification of certainty. Huawei has consistently denied claims that it has ties to the country’s government, has said that it would “categorically refuse” any requests for data from the government, and “declined to comment on what it called unsubstantiated allegations.” US intelligence community has been wary of Huawei and other Chinese-based companies The US intelligence community has been wary of Huawei, and other Chinese-based companies like ZTE, over concerns that the Chinese government has too much influence over them (Huawei’s founder Ren Zhengfei was a former member of the People’s Liberation Army), and that it could use their infrastructure for intelligence gathering purposes. Those concerns have grown as global telecommunications networks begin to transition to 5G networks — a transition that Huawei is hoping to play a big role in, especially in Europe. In recent years, US experts have raised concerns about the company’s products, while the Department of Defense has banned sales of both company’s products on military bases, and the FCC has proposed rules that would ban US telecommunications companies from using Huawei equipment. In recent months, the US has been working to dissuade its European allies from using Huawei gear as they upgrade their respective networks. But the US government’s reasoning has always been fairly vague — which Huawei and other companies have pointed out on numerous occasions and claimed is motivated by politics. This latest report provides a bit of a glimpse into concerns that the US has with the company; potentially specific links to the Chinese government that it was confident enough to share with its allies.
