The Cloud is becoming more pervasive in our day to day lives. More than likely you've used it without even knowing it.


The cloud is also transforming technology and business. For the latest Making a Living program SDPB's Jackelyn Severin sat down with three panelists to discuss cloud storage and security.











South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds is downplaying a recent report from the New York Times that alleges President Donald Trump received an equivalent today of more than $400 million from his dad’s real estate empire in the 90’s.

The Times reports much of that cash came through dubious tax schemes.

The Republican senator says congress would need evidence of wrongdoing before looking into Trump’s previous dealings.

Rounds, Thune Vote To Advance Nominee Kavanaugh

Oct 5, 2018

Senator Mike Rounds is echoing his Republican colleagues by calling the treatment of Supreme Court nominee judge Brett Kavanaugh a “search and destroy” mission by Democrats and special interest groups.

Kavanaugh is accused by three women of sexual assault in high school and college. His drinking has also come into question.

The South Dakota Republican voted earlier Friday to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination.

Rounds says Kavanaugh’s testimony only reinforced his decision on the nominee.
