The 344-286 vote was laden with symbolism, falling on the day the U.K. was originally meant to leave the political and economic bloc. Britain is now due to leave the E.U. on April 12, although that could morph into a lengthy delay, raising the possibility of a general election, a second referendum or even no Brexit at all.

Myelle Lansat, provided by Published 1:50 pm CST, Tuesday, March 5, 2019 Global Entry is a government program that allows pre-approved travelers to quickly go through customs when returning to the United States.

In a blog post earlier this month, the company announced Google Assistant would roll out to Nest Guard so users can ask it for information like the weather or traffic.

Google previously did not disclose the microphone's existence in any of its product descriptions but said it wasn't a "secret." "The on-device microphone was never intended to be a secret and should have been listed in the tech specs. That was an error on our part," a Google spokesperson told CNN Business on Wednesday in a statement.

Andrew Cuomo before announcing New York's Long Island City, Queens, neighborhood as one of two HQ2 winners. However, a steady backlash since the announcement from the city council and state representatives, in particular Long Island City's representatives, and waves of protests from Amazon's would-be neighbors caused it to scotch the deal.In a statement, Amazon said:After much thought and deliberation, we've decided not to move forward with our … [Read more...] about Amazon Backs Out Of New York HQ2: 3 Lessons To Be Learned
