    Automated checkouts 'miserable' for old

    Automated checkout machines put off about a quarter of older people from going shopping, a survey from a housing charity for the elderly suggests. They can find the automated checkouts "intimidating" and "unfriendly," according to the charity, Anchor. Without someone to talk to at the tills, shopping can be a "miserable experience," a spokesman said. The British Retail Consortium said it was important for shops to be welcome destinations for all of the community. The lack of seats in shopping centres or on High Streets can also make older people feel "shut out", according to the charity. It also warned that automated checkouts could add to loneliness and isolation among the elderly. "There was

    President Trump speaks on AT&T-Time Warner deal: 'not good for the country'

    President Trump weighed in Tuesday on the Justice Department's suit to block AT&T's purchase of Time Warner, criticizing the deal. "Personally, I've always felt that that was a deal that's not good for the country. I think your pricing is going to go up," Trump said. "But I'm not going to get involved. It's litigation."

It's been brought to my attention that I have made some of you feel disrespected or uncomfortable. That was never my intent,"
