    A global tipping point for electric cars could come as early as 2022, as battery costs decrease and concerns about range and infrastructure ease. That’s from analysts at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, who in a little over a year’s time have turned even more optimistic about the future dominance of electric cars over internal-combustion vehicles. In a Tuesday note, the analysts forecast that one in three cars will be purely electric by 2030; their July 2016 prediction was one in 10 by the same year. “There are several factors converging that have led us to revise our thinking —...

    Students in a sociology class at San Diego State University can earn extra credit if they take a quiz to determine their level of “white privilege.” Professor Dae Elliott offered the option to her sociology class students, a “White Privilege Checklist” that includes 20 questions that aim to illustrate that “racial privilege is one form of privilege.”
  • Bike-share locks meet industry standards, but were no match for Baltimore thieves

    The manufacturer of the $2.36 million Baltimore Bike Share system said his company has never experienced the level of theft that caused officials to announce a temporary shutdown of the program to allow additional locking devices to be installed to the bike docks. The original locks on the bike stations were overwhelmed by thieves ripping the bicycles out at an unprecedented pace, said Alain Ayotte, CEO of Bewegen Technologies, the Canadian manufacturer. “We don’t have this issue anywhere else, not at this level,” Ayotte said Wednesday. “Our locking system is recognized [as] very, very up to industry standard, but due...

    Failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton demonstrated on Wednesday one of the ways she dealt with her shocking loss to President Trump in the aftermath of the 2016 election while promoting her new campaign memoir. "Seems like you've been doing a lot of yoga?" CNN's Anderson Cooper asked during an interview organized as part of Clinton's What Happened book tour. "Yes, I have," Clinton responded. "And alternate nostril breathing."

    Hillary Clinton was “sure” that she was going to win the 2016 presidential election, saying she didn’t realize it wasn’t going her way until election night, she told “The View” this morning. The former secretary of state and Democratic presidential candidate said she thought that the race “was going to be a close, hard-fought campaign” but that she would come out on top. Asked if she cried the night of the election, Clinton said no. “No, we didn’t cry that night,” she said, referring to her husband, former President Bill Clinton. Hillary Clinton explained her reaction stemmed from a need...

    WASHINGTON – Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) on Wednesday asked terror experts for answers on how to combat the rise of white nationalists, as she has been fielding death threats from extremists. “What can we do to deal with the KKK, the white nationalists, the extremists, the alt-right?” Waters, who serves as ranking member of the House Committee on Financial Services, asked during a Subcommittee on Terrorism and Illicit Finance hearing. “They’re on the internet, they’re Breitbart. If you look at the YouTube, you see how much they want to kill me and others. What can we do?” The hearing was...
  • Gore’s sequel comes in dismal 15th at box office

    Former Vice President Al Gore’s new film, “An Inconvenient Sequel”, came in a dismal 15th this weekend at U.S. theaters, according to Box Office Mojo. Gore’s defenders have been quick to blame Paramount Pictures for the dismal performance of Gore’s sequel. “Al Gore Gets Ripped Off Again,” screamed the headline of D.R. Tucker in Washington Monthly.View post “This was not supposed to happen,” Tucker wrote, adding, “he should have demanded a recount.” “Sadly, the box-office under-performance of An Inconvenient Sequel will be seized upon by climate-change deniers as ‘proof’ that Americans don’t really care about this issue,” Tucker wrote. According...

    American Airlines faced a big stink aboard one of its flights – but the airline insisted Monday that claims of a gassy passenger are a bunch of hot air. The Sunday afternoon flight from Charlotte, NC, landed at Raleigh-Durham International Airport, where airport officials initially said a passenger “passed gas,” WNCN reported. The station reported Sunday that the passengers were removed after experiencing nausea and headaches from the noxious fumes. But airline and airport officials blew off reports of severe flatulence Monday, telling The Post that the plane was not evacuated during a “medical call” after a mechanical issue aboard....
  • In the Trump era, Obama nostalgia is a booming industry (Barf Alert!)

    Pat Cunnane spent six years in the White House helping to promote Barack Obama’s message. From the outside, he still does: On Tuesday, Cunnane became the latest Obama alumnus to land a contract for a book on his experiences. While much of the world obsesses about the more impetuous musings of President Trump — or perhaps in reaction to that obsession — a new market for Obama nostalgia is manifest in the growing number of books, podcasts and TV and film treatments by or involving young veterans from the Obama stable.

    Hillary Clinton has been reading daily devotionals since losing the election which teach her about 'being strong in the midst of unpredictability', her pastor has revealed. The Rev Bill Shillady said that the former Democratic Presidential candidate's prayers have been about 'encouragement' as she grapples with her shock defeat to Donald Trump. He said that Clinton has been finding 'strength and hope' in her Methodist faith as she tries to understand what went wrong. Clinton has only touched briefly on the personal impact her defeat has had on her making Rev Shillady's disclosure a significant insight into her state of...

    President Donald Trump has fulfilled a key campaign pledge, announcing that the U.S. will withdraw from the Paris climate agreement. The Paris Agreement, which committed the U.S. to drastically reducing greenhouse gas emissions, was a truly bad deal—bad for American taxpayers, American energy companies, and every single American who depends on affordable, reliable energy. It was also bad for the countries that remain in the agreement. Here are four reasons Trump was right to withdraw.

    Just 24 hours after being charged with assault for allegedly body-slamming a reporter in his Bozeman campaign office, Republican Greg Gianforte on Thursday defeated Democratic opponent Rob Quist to win the special election for the U.S. House seat in Montana. The race was thrust into the national spotlight in dramatic fashion on Wednesday night after Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs described being "body-slammed" by the GOP candidate, and a Fox News crew who witnessed the incident said the former technology and software executive "grabbed Jacobs by the neck with both hands and slammed him into the ground behind him." "I'm sick...
  • In Montana, cowboy Democrat looks for anti-Trump election win (Gag alert!)

    Can a guitar-strumming cowboy poet strike the first blow at the polls against President Donald Trump? Democrat Rob Quist reckons he can do just that, in Thursday's closely-watched special congressional election in Montana. Quist croons at campaign rallies and writes poems for supporters. And as a first-time candidate for public office, the 69-year-old is running an unexpectedly tight race against a Republican businessman in Big Sky country. The lead once enjoyed by Republican contender Greg Gianforte "has diminished in polling so much that it's miniscule," Jeremy Johnson, an associate professor of political science at Carroll College in the state capital...

    Throughout the 2016 Republican primary, Donald Trump’s opponents and most mainstream media were certain he would self-destruct. After he won the nomination, they were nonetheless certain his campaign would implode, and that Hillary Clinton would win the general election in a landslide. I was one of the dissenters who recognized early on, and explained in great detail throughout 2016, that Trump was probably going to be the 45th president of the United States. Since his inauguration it has grown increasingly apparent that, rather than having learned some kind of lesson, Trump’s erstwhile opposition remains as closed-minded and overconfident as ever....
  • Anthony Weiner pleading guilty to obscenity charge, report says (Putz alert!)

    Anthony Weiner is expected to plead guilty Friday to charges he sexted with a minor last year, according to a report. The scandal-scarred former congressman will cop to a single charge of transferring obscene material to a minor as part of a plea agreement with the US Attorney’s Office in Manhattan, The New York Times reported. Feds have been investigating claims that Weiner, then 51, sent a 15-year-old North Carolina girl inappropriate messages starting in January 2016. The charge carries a potential sentence of 0 to 10 years in prison. A likely result of his plea is that Weiner will...

    He found out like most people. Ousted FBI Director James Comey first learned that he was fired from watching the news — which was playing on television screens during a meeting he was having with agents in Los Angeles, a report says. The 56-year-old had been in the middle of speaking to the bureau employees when the breaking news alert came flashing across the TVs, according to ABC News. An FBI official who was in attendance told Los Angeles Times reporter James Queally that despite the circumstances, Comey “kept on talking.” “He was caught flat-footed,” the official said.

    Just look at the democrats, media and RINOS screwing themselves into the ground over Comey. What's the problem? Stumblebum Comey told the American people all the laws violated by Hillary and her private server and then said never mind! What's up with liberals? They wanted Comey's head on a stick when he was reopening the email investigation of Hillary and now they defend him after Trump fires him? Maybe it's that liberals don't really give a rat's rear end about Comey. Just maybe they are after Trump no matter what he does. (Most of us know the answer to that...

    The sex secrets of the young Barack Obama have been revealed in an authoritative new biography of the ex-president. Obama slept with his girlfriend Genevieve Cook on their first date, before she wrote him a poem about their 'f***ing' and called their sex 'passionate', the book about the former president reveals. They also did cocaine together - and after they split she slept with his best friend. Obama also considered a gay relationship while at college, twice proposed to another white girlfriend, and cheated on Michelle with his ex during the first year of their relationship. His past is revealed...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton puts the blame on her election loss to President Donald Trump on two factors — the hacks of her campaign manager’s emails, and the announcement of a reopening of an investigation into her email server just before the election. And the man responsible for the latter says he’s at least a little bit upset by that. ‘It makes me mildly nauseous to think that we might have had some impact on the election.’ FBI Director James Comey Comey said that based on the metadata from a computer seized from former Rep. Anthony Weiner, there...

    For 10 years, the 82nd Avenue of Roses Business Association has kicked off the city of Portland’s annual Rose Festival with a family-friendly parade meant to attract crowds to its diverse neighborhood. Set to march in the parade’s 67th spot this year was the Multnomah County Republican Party, a fact that so outraged two self-described antifascist groups in the deep blue Oregon city that they pledged to protest and disrupt the April 29 event. Then came an anonymous and ominous email, according to parade organizers, that instructed them to cancel the GOP group’s registration — or else. “You have seen...
