Tensions flare as candidates accuse each other of ballot tampering and "foul play" in a close California congressional race

  • On Monday, Republican candidate Young Kim saw her lead over Democrat Gil Cisneros narrow to just 1,957 votes as the mail-in ballots counted after Election Day have leaned heavily in Cisneros' favor.
  • After initially accusing the Cisneros campaign of being "rebuked" by the Los Angeles Registrar and County Clerk's offices for alleged ballot tampering on Sunday, the Kim campaign took the allegations a step further after Cisneros gained more ground on Monday.
  • As the Los Angeles Times pointed out on Tuesday, however, the distribution of the vote count in the 39th district so far is par for the course in California elections.
  • In a statement to INSIDER on Tuesday, the Cisneros campaign accused the Kim campaign of "blatantly lying" in their allegations of ballot tampering, and further alleged that a representative for the Kim campaign had, in fact, been asked to leave the premises of the LA County Registrar's Office for photographing ballots.

Mindfulness app Simple Habit raises $10 million

  • That’s why Yunha Kim — the founder of Android lock screen app Locket, which she sold to ecommerce platform Wish in 2015 — dropped out of Stanford’s Graduate School of Business to start Simple Habit, an app featuring “bite-size” audio meditation plans.
  • CEO Kim claims that since April 2017 (a few months prior to a cameo on ABC’s Shark Tank), Simple Habit’s apps for Android, iOS, and the web have achieved “tenfold” uptick in revenue and over 80 percent organic growth.
  • Simple Habit will use the fresh capital to further expand its library of more than 1,500 guided meditation sessions, and to offer audio content led by therapists and executive coaches.
  • They feed into spotlight features like a daily notification that reminds users to be mindful, a flow graph that charts progress over time, and a stats screen showing the total number of sessions and minutes completed.

Why North Korea's missile bases shouldn't surprise anyone

  • If anything, the latest findings of a Washington think tank, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), only underscore the vast, messy complexities of stalled denuclearization talks, and raise further questions about the true impact of the historic June 12 summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The CSIS report used satellite imagery to locate the site of "undeclared" North Korean missile bases, notably Sakkanmol, an operational missile base equipped with short-range ballistic missiles that could "easily accommodate" medium-range ballistic warheads.
  • The Trump administration insists on "complete denuclearization" of North Korea and the elimination of its ballistic missile programs upfront -- a nonstarter for a nation that remains deeply suspicious of the outside world and would never leave itself strategically vulnerable simply for the promise of economic gain.

Satellite images reveal hidden North Korean missile bases

  • Washington (CNN) - New commercial satellite images released Monday have identified more than a dozen undeclared North Korean missile operating bases, another sign that Pyongyang is continuing to move forward with its ballistic missile program amid indications that talks with the US have stalled in recent months.
  • While the network of undeclared sites has long been known to American intelligence agencies, it has not been publicly acknowledged by President Donald Trump, who asserted that North Korea was "no longer a nuclear threat" following his June summit with dictator Kim Jong Un. The CIA declined to comment on the images, but US officials have expressed concern about North Korea using hidden and undeclared locations to continue to work on improving their missile technology and possibly their nuclear program.
