"the new york times" reports amazon officials are frustrated by the cold reception, but no decision has been made to back out. walter jones of north carolina has died. a statement on the congressman's website confirming his death yesterday saying after faithfully representing the people of eastern north carolina and congress and the state legislator for over 34 years, jones passed away. his office says he was placed in hospice when his health declined after breaking his hip last month. jones died on his 76th birthday, according to "the washington post." thousands of public schoolteachers in denver are set to walk off the job today.

syria. and, you know, land is one thing. their land has been shrinking. their grip on land has been shrinking, but thidaelg if you listen to the u.s. intel community, it's still there. >> yes. the ideology is still there. sleeper cells, we've seen them attacked in various places in syria and iraq the last few months. and we know that many of the isis fighters have managed to escape, blend back into the local population or go to remote parts of the deserts or the mountains and continue to operate. as a geographical entity, there's not much left to it. just about one square mile. but what we saw this morning is they are launching a serious counter attack. the reason why we're here and i'm not wearing a flack-jacket and a helmet is that in the morning we were woken up by heavy machine gunfire. we went up on the roof where we've been doing lives from for
the last two days. bullets started to zing over our heads and a mortar round landed right next to the building we were in. so we had to get out of there very quickly as rounds were coming down the street. and so we saw some of the syrian democratic forces running in the opposite direction from the front, even though there have been intense air strikes on the town since the morning. but it appears the iesds fighte isis fighters have taken advantage of the heavy mist in the morning. and therefore when this town is going to fall is not at all clear. last night we were speaking to their commanders who were saying that they expected that perhaps today maybe tomorrow they'd be able to take complete control of this town and announce the time victory over isis as a geographical entity. but now it appears that this
battle is going to take a few more days. >> longer than anticipated. ben wedemen is there for us in eastern syria. be careful. thank you for being our eyes and ears on that as the isis caliphate nears collapse. thank you so much. the trump administration deserves a lot of credit for the gains against isis, but the ideology will clearly live on after those gains. coca-cola introducing a new flavor in hopes of keeping customers around. cnn business next. when we started our business we were paying an arm and a leg for postage. i remember setting up shipstation. one or two clicks and everything was up and running. i was printing out labels and saving money. shipstation saves us so much time. it makes it really easy and seamless. pick an order, print everything you need, slap the label onto the box, and it's ready to go. our costs for shipping were cut in half. just like that. shipstation. the #1 choice of online sellers. go to shipstation.com/save and get 2 months free.
