1.Florida widow of slain Microsoft exec calls out his ex-wife after suspect’s arrest
FoxNews–Fox News Digital informed Kirsten that the accused killer was renting his Jacksonville home from Shana Gardner-Fernandez’s second husband, Mario Fernandez, at the time of the slaying.

“I’m not surprised to be honest,” Kirsten said after a long pause. She and Jared share daughters Bexley, 3, and London, 1.

Jared, 33, was gunned down Feb. 16 in front of Bexley after dropping off the twins he shares with Gardner-Fernandez at her home in Jacksonville Beach. He was lured from the car by a tire placed in middle of the one-way road.

“They charged him with conspiracy. That means there are more people,” Kirsten said. “This was orchestrated, this was planned and this was specific to Jared.”

Ryan Lynch: There is more to this story, and I hope the justice system can find who is truly responsible for the orchestrated attack.

2.The West is now ‘directly involved’ in Ukraine conflict after agreeing tank deal, Kremlin says as Putin unleashes missile attack on Kyiv in response
DailyMail–The Kremlin claims the West is now ‘directly involved’ in the Ukraine war after agreeing to send state-of-the-art tanks to the front lines in the fight against Russia’s invading forces.

Today, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said: ‘European capitals and Washington constantly give statements that sending various types of weapons, including tanks, in no way means their involvement in hostilities. We strongly disagree with this. In Moscow, this is perceived as direct involvement in the conflict and we see that this is growing.’

Putin is also furiously retaliating by raining missiles down on Ukraine as an air raid was issued over the whole country in the early hours of this morning.

Ryan Lynch: Washington and NATO have only been reactive. Does either one have a long-term plan to end this conflict?

3.Trump seeks to shift his idling White House campaign back into gear
Reuters–Donald Trump will seek to kick his campaign for the 2024 Republican nomination into gear this weekend, with a pair of campaign stops in key early-voting states more than two months after he announced his intention to run.

The appearances in New Hampshire and South Carolina are an opportunity to address complaints from some fellow Republicans that his intended rematch with Democratic President Joe Biden has gotten off to a slow start, but they may also illustrate a weakening grip on the party.

Key South Carolina allies U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham and Governor Henry McMaster are expected to join Trump in an event at the state capitol, but some other well-known Republicans are staying away. They include two with possible White House ambitions of their own, former Governor Nikki Haley and U.S. Senator Tim Scott.

Ryan Lynch: Good to see Trump starting to ramp up his campaigning.

4.’Till’ director accuses Hollywood of ‘upholding whiteness’ after Oscars snub
FoxNews–Till” director Chinonye Chukwu accused the Oscars as well as the entertainment industry of being “aggressively committed to upholding whiteness” after she failed to earn a “Best Director” nomination.

The 2023 Oscar nominees for the 95th Academy Awards were announced on Tuesday morning with the usual surprises and snubs that come from the movies that are recognized.

One snub included “Till,” a biographical drama about Mamie Till-Bradley and her search for justice after the murder of her 14-year-old son Emmett Till. Although the movie received critical acclaim, it failed to receive any nominations in any category.

Because of this, Chukwu said the Academy Awards are “upholding whiteness” and “perpetuating” misogyny against Black women.

Ryan Lynch: Your movie didn’t perform at an Oscar level. It also bombed at the box office.

5.IBM cuts 3,900 jobs – approximately 1.5 percent of its workforce – after company misses annual cash target in latest round of ‘richcession’ layoffs
DailyMail–IBM Corp on Wednesday announced 3,900 layoffs in the latest string of tech cuts dubbed the ‘richcession.’

The cuts, which impact approximately 1.5 percent of the company’s workforce, come as part of some asset divestments and missed its annual cash target.

Chief Financial Officer James Kavanaugh told Reuters that the company is still ‘committed to hiring for client-facing research and development.’

The layoffs follow recent cuts among other major tech players like Meta, Amazon, Microsoft, and Spotify.

Ryan Lynch: Many of these companies aren’t hurting for money. Why are so many layoffs occurring throughout silicon valley?
