CAMBRIDGE, Ohio—The angry old white men in this no-frills meeting room in a $55-a-night hotel off Interstate 70 are mostly retired truck drivers and coal miners, the kind of blue-collar voters without college degrees who tend to get quoted in Rust Belt diners defending President Donald Trump. They believe the system is rigged, that America has broken its promises to its working class, that the citizens who transport its goods, extract its energy, and shower after work rather than before have been shafted and forgotten. And while “economic anxiety” has become a punchline for pundits who believe Trump’s popularity with this demographic has more to do with racial resentment than trade or wages or health care, the economic anxiety in this room is real. These retirees are at risk of losing the pensions they worked for decades to secure, which is why they’ve gathered to hear the man they trust the most to fight for them in Washington. It’s not Trump.

In the days after Australian biotech firm Innate Immunotherapeutics' stock crashed, a spokeswoman for Rep. Chris Collins told The News that neither the congressman, his son, his daughter nor his chief of staff dumped their stocks before the price collapsed. Federal prosecutors now say that wasn't exactly true. They allege Collins' son, Cameron, unloaded nearly 1.4 million shares of Innate shortly after learning from Collins that company's promising drug had failed. That's not what Collins' staff told The News in June 2017. "Neither Chris Collins, Caitlin Collins nor Michael Hook have sold shares prior, during or after Innate's recent stock halt," Collins spokesperson Sarah Minkel said to The News in a story that appeared June 29, 2017, referring to a halt in trading that was called on the Australian Securities Exchange on June 23. "Cameron Collins has liquidated all his shares after the stock halt was lifted, suffering a substantial financial loss."

Updated 5:39 am CDT, Tuesday, July 24, 2018 LONDON (AP) — Filmmaker James Cameron and Titanic discoverer Robert Ballard are backing a bid by a group of British museums to acquire a collection of 5,500 artifacts from the Titanic. The campaign announced Tuesday aims to raise $20 million (15 million pounds) to buy the items from the private American company that salvaged them from the wreck. The group says the future of the items is uncertain because that company has filed for bankruptcy. The objects include a section of the ship's hull and a bronze cherub decoration from the ship's grand staircase. The bid for the artifacts comes from the Royal Museums Greenwich, National Museums Northern Ireland, Titanic Belfast and Titanic Foundation Limited.
