1.      President Trump took to Twitter to criticize his former attorney Michael Cohen for taping their conversations in 2016 during which the two men appeared to discuss payments to a former Playboy model who says she had a sexual relationship with Trump years earlier. How do you feel about people being secretly recorded regardless of who it is?

2.      Browns GM John Dorsey talked about former Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant during his press conference on Wednesday and admitted they’ve had conversations about signing him.  Is it time for the Browns to cut ties with Gordon and take a chance on Dez Bryant?

3.      A federal appeals court in San Francisco ruled that the Second Amendment guarantees the right to openly carry a gun in public for self-defense finding that the state of Hawaii overstepped its authority to regulate firearms possession outside the home.  Should people openly be allowed to carry firearms?

4.      Microsoft, Google, Apple, and Amazon all have competing smart speakers and in a test Google Assistant was able to answer the most questions correctly. Apple's Siri correctly answered more questions than Amazon's Alexa or Microsoft Cortana but it was Google Assistant that answered 86% of 800 questions correctly. In your wildest imagination, could you have predicted the rapid growth of smart speakers?

5.      Sacha Baron Cohen's new Showtime series continues to makes headlines as it just cost a Georgia state lawmaker his job. Rep. Jason Spencer appeared Sunday night on Who Is America? to participate in what he thought was a counter terrorism training video. During the course, Spencer repeatedly used several racial slurs, including the n-word, which Cohen's character instructed would help in the situation.  Why are so many people  being duped by Cohen? 

6.      The owner of the company behind that makes Necco wafers candy has unexpectedly shut down operations at its Massachusetts plant and hasn't said if production will resume.  According to The Boston Globe, Round Hill Investments LLC announced it is selling Necco brands to another manufacturer and closing down its Revere plant. Do you like Necco wafers?

7.      Rooster Money's new "Kids Allowance Report" finds kids will make about $110 in allowance this summer, or about $8.43 a week. Mowing the lawn, washing the car, and gardening are the top three money makes. Do you think kids should get an allowance?

8.      The Department of Agriculture says the U.S. has too much meat. According to the latest data, meat producers are sitting on a 2.5 billion pound meat surplus, and are running out of cold storage space to keep it in. The USDA also claims dairy farmers are sitting on a 1.3 billion-pound cheese surplus.  Do we need to eat more cheeseburgers?

10.   The New York Daily News is cutting their news team in half.  The Daily News said in a statement, “We are reducing the size of the editorial team by approximately 50 percent and re-focusing much of our talent on breaking news -- especially in areas of crime, civil justice and public responsibility. We know our readers look to us for a unique point of view, and we believe these topics offer our best opportunity to differentiate our reporting. We will, of course, continue to cover local news, sports and other events, but our approach will evolve as we adapt to our current environment."  What are your thoughts on what’s happening at the New York Daily News?
