This hit on Oakland's Amari Cooper that resulted in Cooper leaving the game with a concussion didn't even draw a penalty much less an ejection from the game. In contrast, video replays make sort this out very clearly and quickly as in the case of Amari Cooper. If the NFL is serious about limiting these kinds of hits, it needs to adopt this kind of approach. It also falls on the NFL Player's Association and players. In effect, outlawing "launching" into another player which is often the case in the head hits like the one on Sunday.

The deficit rose to $779 billion in fiscal year 2018, up 17% from last year, according to final figures released Monday by the Treasury Department. That's the largest number since 2012, when the country was still spending massively to stimulate an economy struggling to recover. Social Security and interest on the federal debt also contributed to the increase. The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, a think tank that warns of the dangers of rising debt levels, said the deficit could reach $1 trillion as soon as next year. That would still be below a high of $1.4 trillion reached in 2009, but in a vastly different economy.

Amazon, which operates an India-only payments service that uses elements of its global technology platform, said in a statement: “Compliance with local laws and regulation is a top priority for us in all the countries we operate in. We continue to work closely with the regulator towards this.”The R.B.I., an agency akin to the Federal Reserve in the United States, has said little about why it decided that Indian financial data must be stored only in India. India’s prime minister, Narendra Modi, has portrayed himself abroad as a pro-business leader who welcomes foreign investment. At the same time, the right wing of his party has pushed him to adopt more protectionist, India-first policies to appeal to voters, and law enforcement officials have urged him to make sure they can easily get data on residents when they need it. The Trump administration and the bipartisan India caucus of the United States Senate have both urged India to reconsider its data localization campaign, in part because India’s own outsourcing companies depend on moving data across borders to offer their services.

Now, dealers routinely offer customers an extended service contract offered by many different providers, which serves as a kind of insurance policy against major repairs.

Some fear that any change to the free movement between Ireland and Northern Ireland could reignite the sectarian tensions that took decades to ease. The border would be the only land frontier between Britain and the European Union when they part ways. Abandoned customs houses in the town of Pettigo, which spans the border, were once important to regulate trade. Now, they sit vacant, the paint peeling from their walls. The current border “doesn’t impinge on people’s lives,” said Prof. Margaret O’Callaghan, a historian and political analyst at Queen’s University Belfast.
