President Trump has agreed to shut down his personal charity, the Donald J. Trump Foundation in accordance with a deal amid a legal battle with New York's attorney general.
New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood said on Tuesday the Trump Foundation signed a stipulation agreeing to dissolve under judicial supervision with review and approval by the Attorney General. The Foundation’s remaining assets will go to proposed recipient charities.
Lawyers for the foundation say any infractions were minor. They say they have been trying to shut down the foundation voluntarily for months.
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.
Introduced this past week by President Donald Trump’s administration, the new Waters of the United States rule rolls back provisions written under President Barack Obama’s administration but later blocked from taking effect in about half the states, including Iowa, by the federal courts.
The previous rule brought backlash from farmers and ag groups, who characterized it as a federal power grab — one that critics said would have given the government broad regulatory authority over even the smallest collections of water on farmland.
Last week, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced what it called “a clear, understandable, and implementable definition of ‘waters of the United States’ that clarifies federal authority under the Clean Water Act.” It now must go through a public comment period before becoming final.
Johnson & Johnson CEO Alex Gorksy is defending the consumer products giant against allegations the company was aware that its baby powders, at times, tested positive for asbestos, a carcinogen, according to a Reuters report.
On Monday, the company released a national ad campaign featuring Gorksy, reiterating to the public that its baby powders are completely safe.
Gorsky is doing everything he can to reassure both customers—and investors---after its shares extended declines on Monday after plummeting 10 percent on Friday—losing nearly $40 billion in value.
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.
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.
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."
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.
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?
