The phrase “good things come to those who wait” could barely be more apt for Marcel Siem, who claimed his fifth DP World Tour title in the Hero Indian Open following a barren spell of eight winless years.

The victory completed a stunning career comeback for Siem, who admitted afterwards there were times he wasn’t sure he’d ever be competitive at this level again. This means a lot because two years ago I wasn't even sure if I could still compete on the DP World Tour and now I'm a winner again, come on!"

Late last week, Paxton’s office announced it had reached a settlement for $3.3 million with the ex-senior AG officials who claimed Paxton had illegally retaliated against them for their actions. Paul previously acknowledged hiring the woman who was involved with Paxton, but claimed it was not done as a favor to Paxton and has denied any wrongdoing. “I have chosen this path to save taxpayer dollars and ensure my third term as Attorney General is unburdened by unnecessary distractions,” he said. But it is yet another severe blow to the larger cause of holding Ken Paxton accountable and to bringing public corruption into the public eye. If the Legislature elects to reject Paxton’s multi-million dollar settlement, then it’s back to the courts.1 month ago The Texas Observer

Since President Biden took office and implemented his open border policies, Texas has stepped into the breach.1 month ago Texas Insider
“As you are well aware, social media companies rely on algorithms to not only moderate content, but also to surface personalized recommendations to users. “Recommendation systems are separate and distinct from algorithms that rank or otherwise organize content that a user is already following or subscribed to. However, recommendation systems can also fuel platform addiction by feeding users an essentially infinite stream of content. As the technology has evolved, so too has the arsenal of tools by which social media companies can conduct censorship. The suppression of speech that happens across the world’s largest social media platforms is breathtaking in its scope, near-uniformity, and sheer scale.1 month ago Texas Insider
