Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calls out Trump after news that Amazon plans to hire 1,500 employees in New York City (AMZN)
Stephen Maturen/Getty Images Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Friday that Trump should focus more on getting rid of tax incentives for billionaires after news emerged that Amazon plans to open an office in New York City. In February, Amazon cancelled its original plans to add 25,000 jobs in New York after local politicians — including Ocasio-Cortez — criticized the deal, which would have given Amazon more than $1.5 billion in tax incentives. During a speech in July, Trump had blamed Ocasio-Cortez for Amazon's decision to cancel the proposed move. In her tweet, Ocasio-Cortez suggested that her criticism of the deal was warranted given Amazon's decision to open an office in New York. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.   After the Wall Street Journal reported Friday that Amazon plans to open a new office in New York City, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted that the Trump administration "should focus more on cutting public assistance to billionaires instead of poor families." Ocasio-Cortez had been a vocal opponent of Amazon's original plans to set up shop in New York City, which prompted city officials to offer the company more than $1.5 billion in tax incentives.  Facing intense pushback from Ocasio-Cortez and other local politicians, Amazon announced in February that it would not continue with its proposed expansion. At the time, many New Yorkers blamed those same politicians for causing the company to withdraw and thus costing the city thousands of jobs.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: People are still debating the pink or grey sneaker, 2 years after it went viral.

Double your EFF donation with POWER UP!
This week, I've been doing our family's annual charitable giving (here's a guide to some of the charities we support), a long process that involves using Charity Navigator to verify that the groups we support are still spending money effectively, figuring out how much to give, and then submitting the receipts to my wife's employer for donation-matching. I was a little late to my giving this year, and so I was delighted to be reminded that EFF (always my biggest check!) had extended its "Power Up" donation matching, through which major donors double the individual donations the org brings in. This has been a hell of a year for EFF -- and for the issues it works on. Having my donation go twice as far was a hell of pleasant surprise and really made my week! Power Up!

Elon Musk, "pedo guy."

Tesla Cybertruck in LEGO
BrickinNick created this LEGO model of the new Tesla Cybertruck. BrickinNick posted it to the LEGO Ideas site. If enough people like the design, it could become an actual LEGO product. From the LEGO Ideas specs: While its design may not be for everyone, many different elements and functions of the Cybertruck lend themselves well to an electrifying LEGO build. At this time, only the frunk (front trunk) and tailgate function. Opening passenger doors, a full interior, fold or slide out ramp, opening charging ports, steering, suspension, the Tesla ATV, and more could all be integrated (and are being worked on for future project updates) making for an incredibly fun building experience. LEGO motorization could even turn this into a truly all-electric vehicle in brick form! Dimensions: 35.6 cm L x 15.2 cm W x 12.7 cm H (14" L x 6" W x 5" H) Read the rest

Thousands of Las Vegas shooting victims will have to split an $800 million settlement. Now, 2 retired judges have to decide which victims deserve the most.
Getty Images/Ethan Miller Two retired judges have been given the gut-wrenching task of divvying up a roughly $800 million settlement among thousands of people who were injured or lost loved ones in the 2017 Las Vegas massacre, USA Today reported Friday. Last month, MGM Resorts International, which owned the Mandalay Bay hotel where the shooting occurred, agreed to pay a settlement of up to $800 million to compensate victims and their families. But now, the dilemma boils down to how the judges will assign a dollar value to each person's injuries or trauma. One attorney said they'll likely create a "sliding scale" weighing in favor of people with the most severe injuries. Though $800 million seems like an enormous settlement, some 4,500 people joined the lawsuit against MGM and some will need far more money than others. Visit Insider's homepage for mores stories. Just over two years ago, the deadliest mass shooting in US history left 58 people dead after a gunman sprayed bullets into a music festival crowd as he stood on the 32nd floor of a Las Vegas hotel. Beyond the astonishing death toll, those 10 minutes of gunfire left thousands more injured, traumatized, or grieving their loved ones. Last month, MGM Resorts International, which owns the Mandalay Bay hotel where the shooting occurred, agreed to pay a settlement of up to $800 million to compensate those people.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: People are still debating the pink or grey sneaker, 2 years after it went viral.

Oyama E8D II Review: This folding e-bike gets almost everything right
After testing a few e-bikes this year, it’s quickly become apparent that they are the fastest way to get around a crowded city like New York, especially if you want the optional workout. But there are a few important caveats. For one, e-bikes are typically big and heavy; many city dwellers already forgo regular bikes because they take up too much space in a small apartment or they don’t want to walk them up a flight of stairs. For another, you’ll be even more paranoid about locking them up. You’ll need at least two heavy-duty locks to protect your pricey… This story continues at The Next Web

Trump complains about flushing, becomes the butt of Twitter jokes
The president made a bizarre claim that people flush their toilets "10 times, 15 times" per visit, and now the internet is concerned about his digestive system.  During an event with small business owners on Friday, Trump complained that in homes with low water pressure, showers, sinks, and toilets don't work. Among discussions of other regulations he wants to roll back, he said he ordered a federal review of water efficiency in bathroom appliances. He particularly had issues with environmentally friendly low-flow toilets.  "You turn on the faucet, you don't get any water. They take a shower and water comes dripping out," he said in a video clip from the event. "People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times, as opposed to only once. They end up using more water."

Nike has partnered with Doernbecher Children's Hospital and six of its patients to design sneakers that raise money for clinical care, research, and education
Nike For the sixteenth year in a row, Nike is teaming up with OSHU Doernbecher Children's Hospital and six of its patients to design sneakers that raise money for the hospital. Each patient gets to design a Nike sneaker inspired by their life, with all profits from sales going to three key areas at OSHU: clinical care, research, and education.  In addition to designing their own favorite Nike silhouettes, each kid got to design a Zoom Pulse, Nike's new shoe that's specifically built for nurses and other healthcare professionals.  The Nike x Doernbecher Freestyle 2019 Collection releases on December 7 at 11 a.m. EST.   Sneaker releases are often hyped up simply because of the presumed resale value, but Nike's latest sneaker collection is notable for a different reason: It helps raise money to support children in need of medical care. In 2004, Nike teamed up with OSHU Doernbecher Children's Hospital in the company's hometown of Portland, Oregon to design sneakers and gear to help support the hospital's efforts to provide world-class healthcare to kids. Sixteen years and $27 million raised later, the collaboration is still going strong. This year, six young patients from Doernbecher were given the opportunity to work side-by-side with Nike designers to create their own sneakers from the ground up. Not only do the sales of the collection help support patients at Doernbecher by funding clinical care, research, and education, the process is beneficial to each kid, too. The hands-on approach to design offers kids the chance to express themselves creatively and contribute to an effort to help others like them. To give thanks to the healthcare professionals that treated them — and all other healthcare professionals in the world — this year's designers also got to create a second pair of shoes: their own Nike Zoom Pulse, the brand's new silhouette specifically designed for medical workers who are on their feet for many hours of the day. To extend their personal stories beyond footwear, the collection also includes hoodies, backpacks, and more. The full Doernbecher Freestyle 2019 Collection is set to launch on Saturday, December 7 at 11 a.m. ET. Shop the full Nike x Doernbecher Freestyle collection here.  Learn more about each designer and the sneakers in the collection, below:Ethan Ellis' Doernbecher Air Jordan 14 Nike Ethan's Doernbecher Freestyle Air Jordan 14, available for men, $200 Ethan's Doernbecher Freestyle Air Jordan 14, available for kids, $150 Ethan Ellis was born with hypoplastic heart syndrome, a condition that results in an underdeveloped heart.
