Sundays were made for curling up in front of a good documentary on Netflix with a big ol’ mug of tea. Biscuits optional.

If you’re anything like us you’ve probably already worked your way through the best offerings on the streaming site already, but the newly uploaded Drug Lords might be something worth considering for tonight’s viewing pleasure.

Pretty much exactly what it sounds like, this four-part documentary series takes a look at the most important figures in the drug trade’s history.

Each episode focuses on different kingpins: Pablo Escobar, The Cali Cartel, Frank Lucas and the Country Boys, and the Pettingill Clan. The extreme violence carried out by these gangs and the lengths law enforcement went to in order to combat them are examined in the series.

If you loved the dramatised accounts you get in the likes of Narcos, you’ll be fascinated to see the reality behind these crimes.

Congress meets today to try to end government shutdown as immigration remains a focus #Politics #360WiseNews @360WiseNews [Video]

Lawmakers spent their Saturday on Capitol Hill after a dramatic showdown led to a federal government shutdown on the one-year anniversary of President Donald Trump‘s inauguration.

The government shutdown will continue into a second day after senators went home without a deal on Saturday night. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said there would be a vote at 1 a.m. on Monday unless they reach an agreement sooner.

The shutdown is the first time in recent history when government operations shut down while Republicans control both the White House and Congress, despite the president and others placing the blame on Democrats.

Trump’s director of the Office of Management and Budget, Mick Mulvaney, issued a memo to the leaders of federal agencies and executive departments Saturday, telling them to prepare for the possibility of the shutdown continuing into the start of the work week on Monday. There is no “clear indication that the Congress will act in time” to fund the government by Sunday night, the memo said.

Late Saturday night, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell vowed that a three-week short term measure to fund the government will have its day on the floor, even after Democrats today rebuffed his efforts to advance the bill.

“Earlier today, I asked for consent to move up a vote on this bipartisan solution and end this craziness today,” McConnell said. “The Democrats objected. That won’t work forever. If they continue to object, we cannot proceed to a cloture vote until 1 a.m. on Monday.”

The cloture vote will end debate on the Feb. 8 short term funding measure and it will need 60 votes in the Senate to pass. Unless there is progress in the next day, the government will not reopen because Democrats will not be willing to go along with Republicans if their immigration demands are not met.

A top Democratic aide told ABC News pointed to the lack of a comprehensive fix for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy as a sticking point.

Democrats continued to blast away at the White House, saying “this shutdown is almost entirely the making of the president.”

“Negotiating with President Trump is like negotiating with jello. That’s why this compromise will be called a Trump Shutdown,” the Senate’s top Democrat Chuck Schumer said Saturday afternoon.

This evening, some senators involved in a bipartisan bill to shield DACA recipients were seen shuffling between McConnell’s and Schumer’s offices, suggesting that talks are still ongoing.

Earlier in the day, Trump attacked Democrats for prioritizing immigration policy.

“Democrats are far more concerned with Illegal Immigrants than they are with our great Military or Safety at our dangerous Southern Border. They could have easily made a deal but decided to play Shutdown politics instead. #WeNeedMoreRepublicansIn18 in order to power through mess,” Trump tweeted.

A subsequent tweet read, “This is the One Year Anniversary of my Presidency and the Democrats wanted to give me a nice present. #DemocratShutdown.”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said he thought negotiators were nearing a deal Friday when he met with Trump. Schumer said he “reluctantly” agreed to fund a border wall in exchange for protections for immigrants who came illegally to the U.S. as children and who risk losing protections from deportation without DACA.

“The only way out of this is for the president to take yes for an answer,” Schumer said from the Senate floor Saturday. He accused Republicans of proposing inconsequential remedies that “kicked the can down the road.”

Democrats are accusing Republicans of ignoring the topic of immigration as well as other issues such as public health and veterans in proposed resolutions. Conservatives though portray the stalemate as a case of Democratic obstruction.

At the Capitol on Saturday, Republican leaders including House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., focused their ire back on top officials across the aisle, particularly Schumer.

McCarthy said he believed there was bipartisan agreement to eventually negotiate on four key immigration issues, including protections for persons formally covered under DACA. He said the shutdown was a result of Democrats being “irresponsible.”

The White House said Saturday that Trump has been on the phone with McConnell and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, R-Wis. but that the president “will not negotiate on immigration reform until Democrats stop playing games and reopen the government.” On Saturday callers to the White House public comment line were met with an away message blaming Democrats for “holding funding hostage.”

Meanwhile, thousands of activists — many of them galvanized by Trump’s election to office a year ago — gathered in cities across the nation for the second annual Women’s March, which this year organizers are calling “#PowerToThePolls.”

The shutdown also comes exactly one year after Trump said in his inauguration speech: “We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action, constantly complaining but never doing anything about it. The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action.”

ABC News’ Mary Bruce, Mariam Khan, John Parkinson and Jordyn Phelps contributed to this report.

Facebook to ask users to rank news outlets they trust #USANews #360WiseNews @360WiseNews [Video]

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Friday the social media site will ask its users to rank the news organizations they trust.

Zuckerberg said the changes are part of efforts to ensure news organizations that are trustworthy, as well as news that is informative and local, are prioritized in the News Feeds of its 2 billion users. The goal, he said, is to “make sure the news you see, while less overall, is high quality.”

“There’s too much sensationalism, misinformation, and polarization in the world today,” Zuckerberg said. “Social media enables people to spread information faster than ever before, and if we don’t specifically tackle these problems, then we end up amplifying them. That’s why it’s important that News Feed promotes high quality news that helps build a sense of common ground.”

Zuckerberg said Facebook will be asking users to decide whether they’re familiar with a news organization and whether they trust that source, if they do know of it. This information will impact an outlet’s ranking in the News Feed.

“The idea is that some news organizations are only trusted by their readers or watchers, and others are broadly trusted across society even by those who don’t follow them directly,” he said.

The latest changes to the New Feed won’t change the amount of news that users see on the platform, but it will change the balance of news users see, as decided by whether they have been rated as trustworthy.

Facebook rolled out other changes to the News Feed earlier this week designed to lessen the amount of news that appears.

Donald Trump has accused the Democrats of “putting politics before border and military safety” as the US government was shut down on the anniversary of his presidency. 

The US president tweeted on Saturday: “Democrats are far more concerned with illegal immigrants than they are with our great military or safety at our dangerous southern border. They could have easily made a deal but decided to play shutdown politics instead.”

Mr Trump added: “This is the One Year Anniversary of my Presidency and the Democrats wanted to give me a nice present.”

Donald Trump’s one-year anniversary of his presidency was marred by a US government shutdown (

In a series of tweets Mr Trump accused Democrat lawmakers of putting politics before the interests of the people of America.

But leading Senate Democrat, Chuck Schumer, has pointed the finger at the Republican president. 

“It’s almost like you were rooting for a shutdown,” said Mr Schumer of Mr Trump after the Senate refused to approve a shutdown-averting funding bill.

Mr Trump’s twitter rampage came after Congress failed to reach a deal on funding for federal agencies in a dramatic night in Washington.

The deal would have provided short term funding for government until February 16.

It caused government to shut down on the first anniversary of Mr Trump’s inauguration as president.

And the US government technically ran out of money at midnight on Friday.

Mr Trump was reportedly forced to cancel his planned trip to Florida in celebration of his year as president at his Mar-a-Lago resort as a result.

Most Democrats opposed the bill because their efforts to include protections for hundreds of thousands of mostly young immigrants, known as Dreamers, were rejected by President Donald Trump and Republican leaders.

Minutes before Friday’s midnight deadline for a funding deal, Trump’s White House issued a statement blaming Democrats for the shutdown. “We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands,” it said.

Leaders have said they are committed to getting a quick agreement and agreed to reopen negotiations on Saturday.

Until a funding deal is worked out, scores of federal agencies across the country will be unable to operate, and hundreds of thousands of “non-essential” federal workers will be put on temporary unpaid leave.

“Essential” employees who deal with public safety and national security will keep working.

That includes more than 1.3 million people on active duty in the military who will be required to work but will not be paid until funding is renewed or handled with separate legislation.

The last US shutdown lasted for 16 days in October 2013.
