Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is claiming that she is being discriminated against by House Democrats, implying racism. It turns out that she not only brings lots of media attention, she also carries a truckload of attitude.
An overwhelming majority of manufacturing executives (89 percent) told Deloitte they are already having a hard time finding qualified applicants. But as baby boomers begin to retire – a factor expected to account for 2.69 million vacant spots – and the skill sets among younger generations shift thanks to new technologies, that problem will likely get much worse.
Meanwhile, executives are already shelling out more cash to fill slots: 83 percent of executives reported raising pay in order to attract qualified talent.
The Trump administration has publicly addressed the skills gap – and has developed initiatives to train workers for open positions. In July, President Trump signed an executive order establishing the Council for the American Worker – which is focused on training, retraining and other workplace education initiatives.
The CIA's assessment, in which officials have said they have high confidence, is the most definitive to date linking Mohammed to the operation and complicates the Trump administration’s efforts to preserve its relationship with a close ally. A team of 15 Saudi agents flew to Istanbul on government aircraft in October and killed Khashoggi inside the Saudi Consulate, where he had gone to pick up documents that he needed for his planned marriage to a Turkish woman.
Childbirth experts say C-sections would account for about 10 to 15 percent of the babies delivered if they were done only because of complications. But in 106 of the 169 countries, C-section rates were “well above what is expected on the basis of obstetric indications.” In 15 countries, the procedure accounted for more than 40 percent of births. The research noted that C-sections tended to be underused in poor countries and overused in higher-income countries. In North America, the rate of C-section births increased from 24 percent to 32 percent in the 15-year span, according to the new research. In the United States, the lowest rate was in New Mexico (18 percent) and the highest in New Jersey (33 percent).

But the best time to look will be during the after-midnight hours of Sunday morning, once the source the meteors appear to stream from, called the radiant, comes above the horizon for observers in North America.
Actually, the very best time to observe the Leonids is as close to dawn as possible. This is when viewers will be able to avoid glare from a waxing gibbous moon...
Since November mornings tend to be quite chilly, verging on downright cold, the best suggestion is to be sure and bundle up. The best piece of equipment for meteor watching is a long lounge chair in which you can lie back and look up without putting any stress on your neck. Look up into the sky, keep your eyes moving around and don't stare at any one place. Pretty soon you'll see a streak in the sky; mentally trace the streak backward. When another streak comes by, trace that backward also and see if it came from the same region of the sky as the first.
By the time a third streak appears, you should be able to verify that the emanation point is indeed within the Sickle, a backward question-mark pattern of stars that marks the head and mane of Leo, the Lion.
Attorney General Pam Bondi announced Friday that the two drugstore giants were being added into an existing case against Purdue Pharma, which makes Oxycontin, and several other manufacturers.
