Last year, Vanguard noted that retirement savings actually increased, thanks to strong performance in the stock market. But of course since then, Wall Street's woes have persisted for much of this year, as even otherwise strong stocks have been resoundingly punished. Which means 2023 numbers may drop significantly — though with dollar cost averaging, people who stick it out and keep investing will be rewarded if the market returns to full strength.

A gunmaker promised one of its pistols sold in the U.S. “won't fire unless you want it to” — but a new federal lawsuit argues that's a lie.

The Russian Bastion systems, which have missiles with a flight range of up to 500 km (310 miles), were deployed on the island of Paramushir, the Russian defence ministry said on Monday.

SpaceX's launch services have already become an invaluable resource for the U.S. government, but the company is now jumping into the deep end of the pool it had heretofore only splashed around in. Starshield, a new vertical within SpaceX, will provide "government entities" (think three-letter agencies) with secure communications and bespoke satellite designs. The new brand (possibly a subsidiary) appeared as a new top-line category on SpaceX's website, alongside Dragon, Starlink and Starship, but beyond that has not received any visible promotion or discussion in the company's media channels.
