So much for NATO-alliance members working for the common good. In a move that has angered the U.S. for obvious reason, Turkey’s state-run news agency Anadolu Agency has leaked the precise locations of U.S. bases in northern Syria. The move - which exposes the exact locations of American soldiers on the front lines in the war-torn nation - has sent the ongoing feud between the two NATO allies to new lows. As Bloomberg details, in reports published in both Turkish and English on Tuesday,

When AT&T, Verizon and Comcast convinced lawmakers to kill broadband consumer privacy rules earlier this year, everybody in this chain of campaign-cash dysfunction got notably more than they bargained for. As with net neutrality, the relatively-modest privacy protections had broad bipartisan consumer support (our collective disdain for Comcast magically bridges the partisan divide). As a result, when the FCC's rules died, more than a dozen states rushed in to craft their own privacy rules

Who taught Rosie O’Donnell how to code? The actress is drawing criticism from conservatives after tweeting a link to an online game called “Push Trump Off A Cliff.” The game, which is so low-quality it really does look like O’Donnell programmed it herself, allows players to press a button and watch an animated President Trump…jump off a cliff. Players can choose between four backgrounds: Trump can jump into a river, a fiery lake, a dense rainforest, or –

`` Americans say they love U.S.-made goods. They are less enthusiastic, however, about paying a premium for them... A Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Tuesday found 70 percent of Americans think it is "very important" or "somewhat important" to buy U.S.-made products. Despite that sentiment, 37 percent said they would refuse to pay more for U.S.-made goods versus imports. Twenty six percent said they would only pay up to 5 percent more to buy American, and 21 percent capped the premium at 10 percent.''

It's vacation season, and for some, that means setting off to a new state or country. But we here at Marketplace know the value of a dollar, so when it comes to travel, we try to find ways you can spend your money strategically and not get ripped off. We turned to Mark Orlowski, who does a lot of travel as the founder of the Sustainable Endowments Institute, to find out when to use your points and how airlines are starting to devalue their miles. Below is an edited transcript. Sabri Ben-Achour: We are in the middle of summer travel season and some of us are lucky enough to go on trips. You have to weigh whether to use points or cash for your flights, right? And that's not a straightforward question. How do you know what to use? Mark Orlowski: It depends on how much money the ticket would cost if you were to pay cash. And it also depends on how many miles you have. If you have many millions of miles, practically no matter what the cost may be, it's probably best to spend your miles because they only sort of go one way in value. They slowly depreciate over time, whereas if you maybe are like most folks, and only have a smaller number of miles, you need to weigh whether it's a good use of those limited miles depending upon the cash price of the ticket. Ben-Achour: What's the trick for figuring that out? Orlowski: You want to look at the price that the ticket currently costs if you were to pay cash versus the number of miles required if the ticket is available using miles. And generally speaking, if you can get at least about two pennies per point in value from redeeming your miles instead of paying cash, I would encourage you to consider redeeming your miles unless you're saving them for a very special trip. Ben-Achour: It seems like airlines have been sort of steadily depreciating and devaluing the worth of their miles. Will this long march of devaluation ever stop? Orlowski: Certainly the existing short- and long-term trend is towards a continued sort of devaluation. Take, for example, United Airlines, which just recently announced a major devaluation that's going to go into effect starting November 1. Now, United should be applauded for giving everyone around a four month advanced notice. But the United news certainly means that in more and more cases, the equation of when it makes sense to use cash and when it makes sense to redeem your miles shifts further and further in favor of looking to use cash because the value of those miles continues to go down.

Boris Becker was a legend on the tennis court, unfortunatly when it comes to investing, he appears to have shared an advisor with Johnny Depp. According to claims in the German media, Boris Becker may have lost his roughly €100 million fortune in part because of questionable investments in the Nigerian oil industry. Ever since the 49-year-old former tennis star was declared bankrupt in a London court last month, there has been rampant speculation over how he managed to squander a personal

For years now, large ISPs like Comcast have tried to have it both ways on net neutrality. They consistently profess to support the concept of net neutrality, but they don't want any meaningful rules actually holding them to their word on the subject. And if there are rules, they want them to be so loophole-filled as to be utterly useless. That's effectively what the FCC's initial 2010 rules did, and that's why companies like Comcast are now pushing to have the tougher 2015 rules killed and
