Americans' choice for most admired man this year is sharply divided along party lines: 41% of Democrats name Obama, while 45% of Republicans choose Trump. Relatively few Democrats choose Trump and relatively few Republicans pick Obama, while independents' choices are divided about equally between the two men.
Judge Scott Jenkins of the Travis County District Court made the order in a Dec. 20 ruling that said Jones and his attorney intentionally ignored an October court order to present documents and witnesses to the plaintiff, Neil Heslin... Jenkins said that the move “should be treated as contempt of court" and ordered Jones to pay Heslin $65,825. The judge also denied Jones's motion to dismiss the lawsuit in a separate ruling issued the same day. In that ruling, he ordered the InfoWars founder to pay an additional $34,323.80 in legal fees...
The deal eliminates or lowers tariffs on $7.2 billion worth of U.S. exports, including beef, and puts American farmers on level ground with competitors from Australia and Canada, which along with Japan are part of the revised Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and U.S. President Donald Trump have also agreed to continue negotiations for a more comprehensive trade agreement covering services and investment between the world’s largest and third-largest economies, which together account for roughly 30 percent of the world’s gross domestic product.
Japan is reluctant to continue talks on a bilateral deal as it wants Washington to return to the Pacific free trade pact.
The drones appear and disappear at roughly the same time each night in swarms of at least 17 and up to 30. The drones appear to measure about 6 feet across.
Local and federal government authorities say they have no idea where the drones are coming from. They do not appear to be malicious, however, and a drone expert says they appear to be searching or mapping out the area.
Although this isn't the first tech to purify water, these guys basically created an industrial-sized (but light and portable) unit that is also able to generate enough clean water for the needs of entire villages in a matter of hours running off nothing more than solar energy and fuses both electronic and traditional filtration for fast, cheap, water in areas traditionally unable to get it.
The U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division’s alert brigade has been issued orders to deploy rapidly to Kuwait amid the unrest in Baghdad, three U.S. defense officials told Fox News on Tuesday. At least 500 paratroopers are already making their way to Kuwait, Fox News is told. The alert brigade of roughly 4,000 paratroopers, known as the DRB -- the Deployment Ready Brigade -- has been told to pack their bags for a possible deployment in the days...
The Washington Post reported Tuesday that among those agitating protesters in Baghdad on Tuesday was Hadi al-Amiri, a former transportation minister with close ties to Iran who leads the Badr Corps, another PMF militia.
In 2011, both Fox News and the Washington Times noted that then-Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki brought his transportation minister, al-Amiri, to a meeting at the White House. The Times noted that the White House did not confirm his attendance, but the official was on Iraq’s listed members of its delegation...
Called “Africa’s wealthiest woman”, Isabel dos Santos amassed a fortune estimated at more than $2 billion through stakes in Angolan companies including banks and the telecoms firm Unitel, earning her the nickname “the Princess”.

Crowds of angry Iraqis protesting America’s recent airstrikes against an Iran-backed militia laid siege to the U.S. Embassy compound in Baghdad Tuesday, chanting “Down, Down USA!” as they stormed through a main gate, prompting U.S. guards to fire back tear gas in response... About 100 Marines are being sent to the embassy to bolster security and an Army Apache helicopter flew over the premises and dropped flares in a "show of force", hoping to disburse the crowd, a U.S. defense official told Fox News.
Iran killed an American contractor, wounding many. We strongly responded, and always will. Now Iran is orchestrating an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. They will be held fully responsible. In addition, we expect Iraq to use its forces to protect the Embassy, and so notified!

The investigation found the gesture was used in the classroom within the first two or three weeks of training and symbolized a “sign of respect for Byrd,” the class instructor... The photo was reportedly taken multiple times because not everyone participated until Byrd instructed them to do so, and some cadets made a fist instead of the salute in an attempt to appease the instructor. The report recommended that every cadet be terminated because of the “far-reaching and harmful perceptions” of the gesture.
The U.S. grew from 2018 to 2019 by almost a half percent, or about 1.5 million people, with the population standing at 328 million this year, according to population estimates. That’s the slowest growth rate in the United States since 1917 and 1918... For the first time in decades, natural increase—the number of births minus the number of deaths—was less than 1 million in the U.S. due to an aging population of baby boomers, whose oldest members entered their 70s within the past several years. As the large boomer population continues to age, this trend is going to continue....
The 1 million-mile battery is integral to Musk’s plans for fleets of ‘robotaxis’ and long-haul trucks, both of which would strain the ranges and lifetimes of the current Li-Ion batteries found in Tesla’s passenger vehicles...
