Posted on Wed Mar 29th, 2017 10:40am PDT       By X17 Staff Scott Disick isn’t one to fly under the radar, unnoticed. He prefers a flashier way of life — one that includes a $250K customized white Mercedes G-Wagon with extra-large tires. Apparently Kourtney’s not opposed to blingy whips either — she posted the below photo of her kids Penelope and Reign sitting on the hood of the flashy new vehicle, on Monday, and captioned it, “Mayonnaise-colored Benz, I push Miracle Whips.” So of course “regular” people who don’t have the means with which to buy a miracle whip like that, were up in arms about the mother-of-three putting two of her kids on top of a car and bragging about how amazing it is. Frankly, we’re not offended. Poll SEE THE GALLERY See Scott Disick’s Monster G-Wagon Stories from around the Web

Two Texas boys died Wednesday after they were electrocuted by a downed power line during a severe storm, fire officials said. The children, ages 11 and 12, died in a heavily wooded area near Oakland Lake Park when they ran across a downed power line, a Fort Worth fire official said. A witness told Fox 4 News that the two children were brothers. A 15-year-old boy who was playing soccer at a nearby park told the station his friends noticed smoking coming from the woods. He went to find the source and found the boys. He immediately called the authorities. Severe thunderstorms, some that included tornadoes, hit north Texas and Oklahoma on Tuesday. Oncor, the local electric utility in Fort Worth, reported damage to its system after the storms went through, including in the Oakland Lake Park area. Firefighters assume the downed power line was related to the storm. The Associated Press contributed to this …

A Massachusetts family was looking for an apology from a stranger who made comments at their mother’s funeral they said were insensitive to the Asian community. Adrian Wong delivered the eulogy for her mother on March 18 in Quincy and was supposed to be the only speaker during the procession, CBS Boston reported Tuesday. Wong’s mother died from lung cancer and he said in his speech that she did not smoke but was “simply unlucky.” Wong said he was stunned when another man, whom the family had never met, decided to stand up, speak and try to draw a connection to Carol Tan Wong’s death and “smoke in Asian churches.” “I’m not affected by this, but I see that the smoke in the church in the Asian churches is so prevalent that I gag when I go inside,” David Small, the man who reportedly gave the speech, said. “I hope what I’ve told you about …

The MMQB begins a series of inside-inside football stories and video pieces for the 2017 season with a view into the life of ESPN NFL information czar Adam Schefter on his busiest day of the year: the kickoff day to NFL free-agency. PHOENIX — Publicly, Tuesday’s getaway day at the owners meetings was about three things: 1) Voting on rules proposals; 2) Committee presentations; 3) Getting out of Dodge. Quietly, the wheels were turning on something that’s just a little higher impact. Early in the day, Ravens coach John Harbaugh, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, Saints coach Sean Payton and Panthers coach Ron Rivera held preliminary discussions with league officials on the state of the NFL’s offseason, and its work rules. Later, in a larger session, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians and Browns coach Hue Jackson stood up and made their cases for more time with their players. And if you polled the 32 coaches here at …

TOKYO U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross is expected to join Vice President Mike Pence for a bilateral economic dialogue in Tokyo next month, a Japanese government official with direct knowledge of preparations said on Thursday, dashing Tokyo’s hope of leaving thorny issues on trade off the negotiating table. Participants of the dialogue, led by Pence and Japanese Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso, will hold their first round of talks in Tokyo on April 18 to discuss issues ranging from macroeconomic policy, infrastructure investment and trade. The dialogue will be a major test of U.S. President Donald Trump’s confrontational approach to trade. Senior administration officials, including Ross, have signaled they would press Japan to remove non-tarrif trade barriers and buy more U.S. products. Japan, which proposed the dialogue, had hoped to keep contentious issues like auto and agriculture trade out of the talks by proposing an agenda focused on infrastructure investment and energy. One of Tokyo’s …

ZURICH Novartis AG on Wednesday said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has agreed to accelerate its review of the Swiss drugmaker’s CTL019 therapy for young patients with B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The move would keep Novartis on track with the development of its so-called chimeric antigen receptor T cell therapy, or CAR-T, in partnership with University of Pennsylvania researchers. The therapy involves a patient’s own T-cells being altered in the lab to help the immune system find and kill cancer cells before being re-infused into the patient. Basel-based Novartis’ first CAR-T therapy license application with the FDA has put the company in pole position with regulators as it pushes for approval alongside rivals including biotech Kite Pharma Inc that are developing similar therapies. “With CTL019, Novartis is at the forefront of the science and development of immunocellular therapy as a potential new innovative approach to treating certain cancers where there are limited options,” …

March 30 (UPI) — Turkey’s prime minister said his nation’s seven-month military incursion into war-torn Syria has ended, though it remains unclear whether the NATO ally will maintain its military presence over territory presently under its control. The announcement by Prime Minister Binali Yildirim came Wednesday. The operation, known as Euphrates Shield, was a success, Yildirim said. Turkey announced in August it would send ground forces over the Syrian border to clear the region of fighters loyal to the Islamic State. The operation had the twin effect of halting a military campaign led primarily by Syrian Kurds, backed by the U.S. military. Turkey’s government regards the Kurdish fighters known as the YPG as an extension of the militant Turkish Kurd group PKK, which Turkey and the United States have labeled terrorists. Turkish leaders feared the YPG, aided by the United States, would push west of the Euphrates River and link up with several other Kurdish …

We recently updated our valuation for Micron Technology ( MU ) by approximately 60%, and our current price estimate for the company is $24. In the last 6 months, Micron’s stock price has risen by more than 60% mainly driven by a significant improvement in industry dynamics, increasing price stability (especially DRAM), and Micron’s progress on its cost cutting initiative. While the improving demand-supply scenario has driven top line growth, price stability combined with the company’s cost cutting initiative has given a significant boost to Micron’s bottom line.
