It looks like Donald Trump has landed back in the hot seat. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is suing the real estate mogul for fraud and violating consumer protection laws. The suit stems from complaints dating back to 2005 over Trump University, now known as the Trump Entreprenuer Institute, a school of sorts, to teach people the finer points of the real estate business. The attorney general’s office alleges that students, who paid anywhere from $1,500 – $35,000, would work with handpicked instructors to land real-estate deals.

The feud continues between Time Warner Cable and CBS over how much the cable provider should pay the network to carry its shows. CBS has been dark since early August for millions of Time Warner customers. With the NFL football season starting Sept. 5, there’s pressure on both companies to work out their differences.

Eat more bugs. That’s the message of a recent United Nations report. The world’s growing population needs protein. But beef, pork and chicken eat up valuable resources. Insects offer protein that can farmed at a fraction of the price. The U.N.’s Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that two billion people — mostly in Asia and Africa — already eat insects regularly. Typically, the bugs are either ground into flour or cooked whole and tossed into a variety of dishes.
