The journalism job market looks downright gloomy.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of reporter, correspondent, and broadcast news analyst jobs will decline by 9% between 2014 and 2024.

So how can young people make it in this increasingly competitive field?

BMW will reveal an ultra-high-performance MINI concept this month — and it looks awesome

BMW-owned MINI is well-known for its adorable, design-centric cars. But the automaker is also serious about performance and is no stranger to the track. We've sampled some of their hotter rides here at Business Insider, and we've been both impressed and terrified (in a good way).

MINI knows how to turn the performance volume up to 11, and that's where the John Cooper Works GP concept comes in. 

This wildest MINI will be rolled out at the Frankfurt Motor Show next week. It continues a tradition for MINI of developing GP-grade cars, which the company says are "[i]nspired by the carmaker’s legendarytriumphs in the Monte Carlo Rally" in 1967.

President Donald Trump likes to use Twitter, but that doesn't mean he surfs the internet. 

Trump's phone doesn't even have a web browser on it, the New York Times reported on Friday: 

Mr. Kelly cannot stop Mr. Trump from binge-watching Fox News, which aides describe as the president’s primary source of information gathering. But Mr. Trump does not have a web browser on his phone, and does not use a laptop, so he was dependent on aides like Stephen K. Bannon, his former chief strategist, to hand-deliver printouts of articles from conservative media outlets.

Earlier this year, White House officials said that Trump had


Trump responds to question about whether the US will attack North Korea: 'We'll see'

President Donald Trump on Sunday offered another vague statement suggesting the US may use military force against North Korea.

When asked by the White House pool reporter outside of a Washington, D.C. church if Trump plans to attack North Korea, Trump responded "We'll see."

Trump's comments came hours after North Korea tested what it claimed was a hydrogen bomb, its most powerful nuclear weapon to date. 

Following the test, Trump posted a series of tweets suggesting that the US could use military force against North Korea.

Trump specifically urged China to step up economic pressure intended to force North Korea to halt its nuclear program, saying that the US could stop trade with China entirely if Chinese companies and financial institutions continued to conduct business with North Korea.

The United States is considering, in addition to other options, stopping all trade with any country doing business with N...


The entire plot of ‘Game of Thrones’ season 7 leaked before the finale — and it reveals one crucial scene that never aired

Warning: Spoilers ahead for the "Game of Thrones" season 7 finale, "The Dragon and the Wolf," and potential spoilers for Cersei and season eight of "Game of Thrones."

The latest season of "Game of Thrones" was rife with satisfaction for fans. Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen finally met. The White Walkers finally made it to The Wall, and then broke through with a zombie dragon. Most importantly of all, the framework was set in place for the inevitable battle between the living and the White Walkers.

But even with all that closure, one huge wrinkle remains: Queen Cersei is pregnant with her fourth child from her twin brother, Jaime. Yet, as long-time fans of the series know, Cersei is very unlikely to ever give birth to another child.

According to a mostly accurate, leaked outline of season seven, the latest season of "Game of Thrones" intended to tie off that loose thread as well. 


Leaked document shows how Apple decides to replace or repair your iPhone (AAPL)

It can be hard to predict what's going to happen when you visit an Apple Store to get your iPhone repaired.

Apple's warranty for most products covers eligible repairs for its products, including the iPhone, for a year after purchase.

But what's an eligible repair? Damages specifically not covered includes anything stemming from "accident, disassembly, unauthorized service and unauthorized modifications."

A 22-page document recently leaked on Dropbox shows how Apple instructs its technicians and authorized service partners to inspect iPhones for repair and how to determine if they are eligible for an in-warranty repair (inexpensive), an out-of-warranty repair (more expensive), or if it's a problem that Apple can't fix (you need a new phone.)


Alphabet, which used to be Google, has created XXVI — a new holding company for all the 'other bets' (GOOG, GOOGL)

If you're having trouble keeping track of how the company-formerly-known-as-Google wants to refer to itself, you're not alone. And as of Friday, it's going to be even more difficult.

That's because Google's parent company Alphabet has formed a new holding company called XXVI Holdings Inc to manage the various "Other Bets," according to a Bloomberg report. These Other Bets are the subsidiaries that formed under teh Alphabet structure structure about two years ago.

Confused? 

Let's start with the easy part. The new holding company is called XXVI, named for the 26 letters in the alphabet. (Get it?)


Apple could soon set up shop in the Hollywood studio where 'Gone with the Wind' was made (AAPL)

Apple is in talks to move its original content division to the studio where both "Gone with the Wind" and "The Matrix" were shot, according to the Financial Times.  

The Culver Studios, which are located in Culver City, just west of Los Angeles, has 13 soundstages that are set up for producing television, film, music videos, and commercials. But Apple would likely be using the space primarily for office space, rather than for producing original content, the Financial Times reported.
