The OpenAI Board of Directors maintains its decision to force Sam Altman out of his position as CEO.

Argentina's next president is a libertarian economist whose bravado and embrace of conspiracy theories resembles Donald J. Trump's.

Argentines elected Javier Milei, a far-right libertarian who has drawn comparisons to Donald J. 

Trump, as their next president on Sunday, a rightward shift for a country in the grip of an economic crisis and evidence of the global far right's enduring strength.

Mr. Milei, a 53-year-old economist and former television personality with little political experience, burst onto the traditionally closed Argentine political scene with a brash demeanor

an embrace of conspiracy theories, and a series of extreme proposals he claims are required to upend a broken economy and government.

Mr. Milei received 56 percent of the vote, with 95 percent of ballots counted, defeating Argentina's center-left economy minister, Sergio Massa, who received 44 percent. 

Mr. Massa, 51, conceded defeat before the official results were announced.

Mr. Milei has promised to reduce spending and taxes, close Argentina's central bank, and replace the country's currency with the US dollar. If you're looking for a unique gift, this is the place to be.
