New U.S. liquefied natural gas terminals with enough capacity to double U.S. exports have either begun commissioning their facilities or are waiting for approval from the energy regulator, a review of their documents showed this week. Although long planned, the actual commissioning of plants has been a moving target in the past.

A former exec at Google and Facebook doesn't just expect job candidates to negotiate their offer — she hopes they will
Libby Leffler, a former Facebook executive and Google employee, is now the vice president of membership at SoFi. Leffler said she always expects job candidates to negotiate their job offer because it shows how they'll behave once they get hired.

It started as a series of phone calls among old high-school friends and ended up embroiling 65 women in the firestorm over a sexual assault allegation that could shape the Supreme Court. In a matter of hours, they all signed onto a letter rallying behind high court nominee and their high school friend Brett Kavanaugh as someone who "has always treated women with decency and respect." And they signed up, whether they anticipated it or not, for becoming a focus of scrutiny themselves. The powerful strength-in-numbers statement, offered to bolster Kavanaugh's denial of a claim that he attacked a girl at a party during their high school years, has drawn questions from journalists, social media skeptics, even Hollywood figures.

Robert Mueller has been busy. In just the last two weeks, the special counsel has secured the cooperation of President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman, dispensed with the case of the campaign aide who triggered the Russia probe and signaled he's squeezed all the information he needs out of former national security adviser Michael Flynn. The president has continued to wage a public-relations war on Mueller, casting his investigation into Russian election interference and possible coordination with Trump associates as a politically motivated witch hunt.

Lawmakers have been passing spending bills with unusual speed and little fanfare lately, most recently the $854 billion package covering the Departments of Defense, Health and Human Services, Labor and Education that sailed through the Senate Tuesday. The ease with which these huge spending bills are passing isn’t sitting well with some conservatives in Congress, according to The Hill. “It’s a little bit frustrating right now,” said Rep. Mark Walker, the chairman of the conservative Republican Study Committee.

It looks like Nintendo could release a miniature Nintendo 64 console to compete with the new Sony PlayStation Classic (NTDOY)
Nintendo's got a hot console in the Nintendo Switch, which launched last year. It is, for all intents and purposes, Nintendo's main product. Hilariously, this would be a perfect throwback to the original showdown between the PlayStation 1 and Nintendo 64 back in the mid-'90s.

The Air Force is 71 years old today, and its birthday wish list is a doozy. Saying that growing threats from China and Russia call for a substantial increase in U.S. air power, Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson said Monday that she would like to see 74 more squadrons deployed by 2030. The current force structure of 312 squadrons is too small to meet even the current mission focused on counterterrorism in the Middle East, Wilson said at the Air Force Association’s Air, Space, Cyber Conference outside Washington.

O’Rourke garnered increased attention after some earlier polls in the heavily Republican state showed him narrowing Cruz’s lead to just a few points, spurring Republicans to warn against complacency and President Donald Trump to plan what he promised would be a massive campaign rally in the state in October.
