The Trump-North Korea Meeting Will Be At The DMZ - 

Kim Jong Un is reportedly agreeing to the idea of meeting President Trump in the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea.

Trump raised the possibility during a news conference this week and CNN says the North Korean leader has given it a thumbs-up. Some events may be held on the North side. No date has been set for the historic summit but Trump said it could happen in three-to-four weeks.

The Korean DMZ sits on the most heavily armed border in the world. It is also where the historic meeting between South Korea’s president and Kim Jong Un took place last week.

Those concerns that the iPhone has lost its luster appear to misguided, as Apple beat analysts' estimates with its latest revenue and profit report.

Apple said that its sales have increased 31 percent and it also raised its dividend, and revealed a $100 billion share buyback.

With the news on Tuesday, Apple's shares rose three-percent in extended trading, after it closed at $169.10. In recent weeks, the Cupertino, California-based company's stock had dropped due to concerns over demand for the iPhone X [pr: ten], its most expensive model to date.

In the fiscal second quarter, Apple's revenue was up 16 percent to $61.1 billion, marking the company's fastest growth in more than two years.

Judge Orders Iran To Pay 9/11 Victims -

 A U.S. judge is ordering Iran to pay billions of dollars to the family members of over a thousand 9/11 victims.

A default judgment issued yesterday by a federal judge in New York found the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Revolutionary Guard and the Central Bank of Iran liable for the deaths of over a thousand people in the attacks on September 11th, 2001.

Judge George Daniels ordered the Islamic Republic and various entities to pay $12.5 million per spouse, $8.5 million per parent, $8.5 million per child and $4.25 million per sibling.

The family members of the victims filed a lawsuit in 2004, and the suit was allowed to go forward in 2016 after Congress passed a law allowing countries accused of terrorism to be held liable. The lawsuit alleges that Iran provided assistance and training to the 9/11 hijackers. 

Iran has never responded to the lawsuit.
