Trump's border wall could become a cheaper fence

President Trump wants a wall along the border with Mexico, CNN has been told by multiple sources within the agencies involved in building, paying for and enforcing this barrier.

It would be a far bigger and a vastly more expensive project, and any plan would need to be sent to Congress for funding approval.

"Even in an age of rising nationalism, we as a global technology sector need to become a trusted and neutral digital Switzerland," Smith said at the RSA Conference 2017 in San Francisco. This week’s security conference is getting more focus than ever before, thanks to the 2016 US presidential election, which generated more news on cyberattacks, email leaks, and cybersecurity blunders than anything else.

Germany gets Gold back after Cold War

Germany completed the transfer of $13 billion in gold reserves from New York to Frankfurt, the Bundesbank announced on Thursday. The transfer is one step in a plan developed by Germany’s central bank in 2013 that aims to repatriate half the gold reserves it keeps abroad during the Cold War. The final transfer is expected from Paris later this year, completing the project three years ahead of schedule. Stashed away at the height of the Cold War in safe havens well out of Moscow's reach, the 3,378-tonne, 120 billion-euro gold stockpile has become a symbol of Germany's economic ascent and a guardian of its stability. Germany is not bringing home its gold bullion in response to concerns about President Trump’s monetary policy, officials said.
