Spotify has announced a new beta feature that will allow independent artists to upload their music directly to the platform instead of through a label or digital aggregator. Normally, artists who aren’t signed to a major label (which can directly upload music to Spotify) have to pay a fee to a third-party service like Tunecore to upload their music to Spotify. The upload feature will be contained within the service’s existing Spotify for Artists platform, which, among other things, allows artists to view data about their listeners and directly submit their songs for editorial playlist consideration.

The death toll on the island of Sulawesi stands at 832 people, but officials said Sunday they expect that number to climb as rescuers sift through the destruction left by a powerful earthquake and tsunami.
Two days after a 7.5 magnitude earthquake hit the island and 3-meter-high waves crashed onto its northern shore, authorities continued combing through chunks of concrete and lumber searching for survivors.

Here Are All The Questions Christine Blasey Ford Had To Answer About Brett Kavanaugh Allegedly Sexually Assaulting Her
Sept. 29, 2018
According to a new report from NBC News, the White House already appears to be obstructing the inquiry into the allegations against Kavanaugh by “limiting the scope of the FBI’s investigation” so not all of the women or witnesses are interviewed.
More from the troubling report:
Instead of investigating Swetnick’s claims, the White House counsel’s office has given the FBI a list of witnesses they are permitted to interview, according to several people who discussed the parameters on the condition of anonymity. They characterized the White House instructions as a significant constraint on the FBI investigation and caution that such a limited scope, while not unusual in normal circumstances, may make it difficult to pursue additional leads in a case in which a Supreme Court nominee has been accused of sexual assault.
In other words, the scope of the investigation into the first two accusers – Dr. Ford and Ramirez – will be severely limited by the White House, and an inquiry into the explosive allegations from Julie Swetnick will be ignored altogether.

according to a deep, data-driven survey of his writings from the bench, Kavanaugh is much like the man who selected him — highly divisive in his decisions and rhetoric. He is an uncommonly partisan judge, even compared with other federal appeals court judges. Trump is seizing this opportunity to shape a generation of U.S. jurisprudence, and the direction he’s chosen is a hard right turn.

Dozens of doctors tasked by the federal government with screening immigrants have serious criminal records or histories of abusing patients, a federal watchdog says.
One of the doctors even has a felony conviction for attempting to hire a hit man to kill a "dissatisfied patient," and another doctor has a long history of "sexual misconduct and exploiting female patients."
At least 132 of the 5,500 doctors charged with screening the immigrants could "pose a health or safety risk," the watchdog report said.
