    A job application form signed by Apple co-founder Steve Jobs as a teenager back in 1973 — one that hints at his computer skills — is being sold at auction in London. The paperwork for the unspecified position dates from a year before Mr Jobs joined then video game start-up Atari as a technician and worked alongside Steve Wozniak. The duo would go on to found the Apple Computer Company, releasing their first machine, the Apple-1, just two years later. Had teenaged Jobs' application been successful, he may not have met Mr Wozniak and the landscape of modern computing would likely have ended up very different. London auctioneer Charterfields is auctioning the item online on February 24, 2021 — with bids set to open at £15,000 (which is around $20,950). However, the form is likely to sell for significantly higher, as the last time the one-page application was sold, back in 2018, it went...

    The $600 a week lift in unemployment benefits currently provided by the federal government is highly likely to expire at the end of the month if Congress follows Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's suggested timeline for the upcoming round of pandemic relief. McConnell said he would begin deliberations on the GOP's next relief package when the Senate returns from recess next week and start the process of putting together a bill with Democrats. The Kentucky senator said during an event earlier this week that he expects the legislation to be finalized "sometime within the next three weeks, beginning next week." This means that the $600 in additional unemployment benefits, created under the $2.3 trillion CARES Act coronavirus relief bill in March and scheduled to expire on July 26, will lapse for some time before Congress has a chance to bring it back to life in the next bill.

Berman will appear before the Democrat-led House committee next Thursday, Fox News is told. Attorney General William Barr informed Berman late last month that he was fired from his post as U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. At the time, Barr said he asked Trump to fire Berman after the Manhattan federal prosecutor said Friday he planned to stay on the job against the Trump Administration's wishes.

A public viewing will be held in Houston the night before he is laid to rest, Crump said.
