July 6 (UPI) -- San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin got paid this offseason and he's already doing big things with the new cashflow.

Instagram unveils new video service in challenge to YouTube

In this case, Instagram is mimicking Google's YouTube. Before, Facebook an...

Macron tweeted a video of the discussion, prompting a flood of comments Tuesday. Some applauded the French leader's demand for respect, while other...
