Republican Rep. Martha McSally, just weeks after losing one of the midterms' tightest and most contentious Senate races, was appointed by Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey on Tuesday to fill the state’s other U.S. Senate seat.
McSally will serve for at least the next two years in the seat that was held by longtime Arizona Sen. John McCain until his death in August.
Trump has a point: On Thursday, the Justice Department's internal watchdog revealed that special counsel Robert Mueller's office scrubbed all of the data from FBI agent Peter Strzok's iPhone, while Page's phone had been scrubbed by a different department, according to a comprehensive report by the Office of the Inspector General released on Thursday.
There's just one problem — or, at least, there's one major irony. The ice chunks had to be flown from Greenland to London using specially designed devices. Once in London, they were dropped, then arranged in a "circular garden," but not before Bloomberg and his colleagues spent thousands — and emitted thousands of pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere — getting the chunks from one place to another.
I wonder if Bloomberg is going to demonstrate how melting ice DOESN'T increase the water levels.
Researchers and scientists at the University of California and the Anti-Defamation League are working on a way to combat what they are calling ‘bigoted hate speech,’ according to a new report... In fact, researchers are even creating an Online Hate Index (OHI) which will essentially keep track of peoples level of hate.
At least five companies have pulled their ads from the Tucker Carlson Tonight show after Fox News host Tucker Carlson asserted that immigrants make the US "poorer and dirtier and more divided."
As of Monday, Pacific Life, Indeed, SmileDirectClub, Minted, and Nautilus, the parent company of the Bowflex, announced they would be suspending their ads during Carlson's show.
Jorge Beltrao Negromonte da Silveira, his wife, Isabel Pires, and his mistress, Bruna Cristina Oliveira, were sentenced over the weekend after they were arrested in 2012 for killing at least three women, Brazilian outlet G1 reported. The trio -- nicknamed the "cannibals of Garanhaus" for the neighborhood where the murders took place -- was on trial for killing Alexandra Falcon Silva, 20, and Gisele Helena da Silva, 31.
Silveira was sentenced to 71 years in prison, while his wife received 68 years and his mistress 71 years and 10 months.
The trio lured women to their home by offering them a job as a nanny or giving them religious advice before slaughtering them and eating their flesh. Silveira’s wife used some of the flesh to make stuffed meat pastries called "salgados." They sold some of the pastries to neighbors.
The tiny planet is called 2018 VG18 — later nicknamed “Farout” by the team that discovered it — and it’s about 3.5 as far away as Pluto, some 18 billion kilometers (11.2 billion miles) away. That’s more than 100 times the distance between the Earth and the Sun — and about the same distance as Voyager 2, the NASA probe that launched in 1977 and reached interstellar space this month.
Farout was spotted by the Japanese Subaru telescope in Hawaii on November 10 by Shepard and several colleagues, according to a statement on Carnegie Institution for Science’s website.
Experts attribute the jump to newer versions of e-cigarettes, like those by Juul Labs Inc. that resemble computer flash drives and can be used discreetly.
The federally funded survey released Monday is conducted by University of Michigan researchers and has been operating since 1975. This year's findings are based on responses from about 45,000 students in grades 8, 10 and 12 in schools across the country. It found 1 in 5 high school seniors reported having vaped nicotine in the previous month.
After vaping and alcohol, the most common thing teens use is marijuana, the survey found. About 1 in 4 students said they'd used marijuana at least once in the past year. It was more common in older kids — about 1 in 17 high school seniors said they use marijuana every day.
The discovery of methane on Mars in 2004 got the scientific and let’s-move-to-Mars worlds excited. Unfortunately, the party may have been premature – new data shows that all of the Martian methane has disappeared. Who lit a match?
The lawsuit, from Boston Symphony Orchestra principal flutist Elizabeth Rowe, claims she's a victim of gender bias because the orchestra pays the principal oboist -- a man -- about $70,000 more per year.
The suit is challenging the orchestra's pay structure under Massachusetts' new Equal Pay Act, which went into effect in July and prohibits employers from paying lower wages to workers of a different gender who perform comparable work, which in most cases are women.
The change, that silently took place in April this year, has now been revealed to Swiss newspaper Blick. Specifically the halal certification means that the production process must be inspected and approved by imams as being in line with Islamic standards.
Judge Pamela Chen issued her ruling Friday in federal court in Brooklyn.
The state has completely banned private citizens from owning nunchucks, two rigid rods connected at one end by a chain or rope, since 1974.
Two subspecies of giraffes were recently added to the list of "critically endangered" species for the first time ever... The next slots after 'vulnerable' are 'endangered', 'critically endangered', 'extinct in the wild', and 'extinct'. Thus, if we do nothing about it, giraffes could become extinct in the wild in the medium-term future.
The National Football League is having a very difficult time finding acts to play the halftime show for the league's annual Super Bowl — and musicians are beginning to call the prime time performance slot the "least-wanted gig" in music.
[...] The problem seems to be the NFL, and in particular, its relationship with out-of-work second-string QB Colin Kaepernick.
Warning against the “dangers of populism,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says using immigration as a wedge political issue puts Canada’s future at risk.
Trudeau might face a steep challenge if migration turns out to be an election issue.
MIT engineers devised a way to create 3D nanoscale objects by patterning a larger structure with a laser and then shrinking it.
The team can generate structures one-thousandth the volume of the original using a variety of materials, including metals, quantum dots, and DNA.
The future of archaeology? It is possible that using 3D printed models of fragments could help the study of other historic sites that have fallen apart in time, but the technology has so far turned out to be more cumbersome and less user-friendly than expected, and Vranich says that so far, there’s no easy substitute for an archaeologist’s trained eye.
Roger Stone settled a defamation suit seeking $100 million in damages on Monday for publishing false and misleading statements on InfoWars.com...
[...] The agreement requires Stone to run ads in national newspapers, including The Wall Street Journal, apologizing for making defamatory statements about a Chinese businessman who is a vocal critic of Beijing. It also requires Stone to publish a retraction of the false statements on social media. Doing so exempts him from paying any of the damages.
Rodolphe “Skip” Vallee, the CEO of St. Albans-based gasoline distributor and retailer R.L. Vallee, is alleging that Sanders and his senior press adviser, Daniel McLean, conspired against the business owner by drumming up a class-action lawsuit, according to federal court documents.
The firm already is in the thick of investigations by US prosecutors and regulators over Goldman's conduct in the controversy.
[...] "The criminal charges of this nature are grave, and it goes to the core of Goldman's business as an investment bank," said Nizam Ismail, a partner at RHTLaw Taylor Wessing LLP in Singapore.
"If the outcome of the case results in a criminal conviction against the bank, there are potentially severe reputational and financial risks to the bank, as well as the bank's standing as a licensed financial institution with regulators worldwide."
President Donald Trump on Monday said he authorized a second round of payments from an aid package of up to $12 billion designed to help farmers stung by the U.S. trade war with China, billing it as a promise kept to a key constituency.
Farmers hailed Trump’s decision to proceed with the payments. “They are a significant help as we continue to deal with low prices,” said Kirk Leeds, chief executive of the Iowa Soybean Association. “It has been a tough year for U.S. soybean farmers.”
The USDA expects direct payments to farmers under the program to total $9.567 billion, with around $7.3 billion for soybean farmers, the hardest hit from the trade war. The USDA program includes an additional $1.2 billion in food purchases, and around $200 million to develop foreign markets, bringing the total estimated aid to just below $11 billion.
President Trump is clawing back American wealth; inch by inch… bit by bit. This is the full monty. This is economic nationalism. This is for all the marbles.
[...] President Trump and Treasury Secretary Mnuchin have already begun assembling and delivering a new banking system.
Instead of attempting to put Glass-Stegal regulations back into massive banking systems, the Trump administration is creating a parallel financial system of less-regulated small commercial banks, credit unions and traditional lenders who can operate to the benefit of Main Street without the burdensome regulation of the mega-banks and multinationals. This really is one of the more brilliant solutions to work around a uniquely American economic problem.
We've been talking about currency resets, replacement of the Fed Reserve, and even going back to the gold standard for awhile now, but in order to accomplish something at a grand scale, you need to have a really intelligent team at hand that can provide stability mechanisms to achieve such goals.
Sundance from ConservativeTreehouse has a great piece right now that talks about the war with Global vs National economics and how it's coming to a head now. An excellent read and highly recommend it. With that said, I'll leave you with a quote that Trump has made in the past regarding the Federal Reserve that should give you some clarity on his position towards that monster he is facing up against:
Trump also raised eyebrows and energized supporters when he rented out the 50th floor of a building he owns to American Precious Metals Exchange (APMEX) — and allowed the company to pay its security deposit in gold bars rather than constantly depreciating Federal Reserve notes. In a video produced by Birch Gold Group about the deal, Trump explained his thinking behind the move, arguing that gold was better than cash.
“Sadly we all know what’s happening to the dollar,” he explained, alluding to the fact that the U.S. dollar has lost more than 95 percent of its purchasing power since the banking cartel known as the Federal Reserve took over in 1913. “The dollar is going down and it’s not a pretty picture, and it’s not being sustained by proper policy and proper thinking. This was an opportunity and maybe an opportunity to show people what’s happening with the dollar so we can do something about it.”
