    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has tweeted photos of his working dinner with a top aide of North Korean ruler Kim Jong-un in a historic meeting in New York on Wednesday. Kim Yong Chol met with Pompeo in Manhattan, where the two dined on 'steak, corn, and cheese,' according to the secretary of state. He is the most senior North Korean official to visit the United States since 2000, when Vice Marshal Jo Myong Rok traveled to Washington to meet with then-President Bill Clinton in the Oval Office. The North Korean official is in the U.S. conducting one of three...

    [snip] Arnold - who was a writer on the original Rosanne series - claimed that Barr's politics and social media showed that she was obsessed with the conspiracy theories that Donald Trump has been feeding to the masses. Arnold wrote for the show in 1988 and married Barr in 1990 but would divorce in 1994. 'This monkey thing is something that she tweeted before about black people, it's a meme that she and thousands of her alt-right fans do. They love to call black people monkeys, it's not a one time joke,' Arnold explained.
  • Scott Adams Talks About Rosanne's Ambien Defense

    Scott Adams releases several talks throughout each day. I try to watch most of them. Today he posits that the company that manufactures Ambien has made a massive mistake by issuing a statement that "Ambien does not cause racism". He contends that Ambien does cause people to do things they otherwise would not do. And that the drug. is classified as a "hypnotic". His take is that Roseanne may well have taken the drug and tweeted under its influence. He also feels that the drug company may well open themselves up to problems by saying that their drug does not...

    The biggest Chick-fil-A location in the world is now open in New York City. The new 12,000-square-foot franchise location had its grand opening on Thursday, drawing massive lines of people eager to satisfy their fast food craving and check out the behemoth, five-story restaurant. The new Chick-fil-A, located at One World Trade Center in the Financial District, features what the Georgia-based company called 'one of a kind design elements,' including seating for 140 people, an open-air rooftop dining area, floor-to-ceiling windows, two kitchens and a semi-private group meeting and dining space.

    An engineer called the Florida Department of Transportation to report concerns about a crack on their new 'instant' bridge two days before it collapsed - but no one ever picked up their voicemail. FIGG's lead engineer responsible for the Florida International University, FIU, pedestrian bridge project, W. Denney Pate, left a message warning that they had observed some cracking at the north end of the bridge. The voicemail was not picked up until Friday - a day after the bridge collapsed killing six. Pate warned that the cracking areas would need repairs but assured that, 'from a safety perspective we...

    CNBC ^ | 02/05/18 | Thomas Franck
    An exchange-traded security which is supposed to be a bet on calm markets was collapsing after hours. The VelocityShares Daily Inverse VIX Short-Term exchange-traded note (XIV) is down more than 80 percent in extended trading Monday. The security, issued by Credit Suisse, is supposed to give the opposite return of the Cboe Volatility index (VIX), the market's widely followed turbulence gauge. The VIX doubled during regular market hours Monday, causing obvious havoc for a product seeking to track its inverse return. Though, the XIV dropped just 14 percent during regular trading. But then after hours trading began and the security,...

    Fearing Deportation From U.S., Migrants Walk To Canada Many immigrants were encouraged to come to Canada after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau posted a tweet welcoming refugees in response to President Trump's first travel ban last January, says Marjorie Villefranche, head of Maison d'Haiti, a community center and advocacy organization in Montreal. "I think they took that message as a welcome message," she tells Here & Now's Robin Young. "When you arrive in Canada you have to go through an immigration process anyway, so they knew that it wouldn't be that easy. But I think they are taking a chance because...

    “This is terrible attack, a shocking incident to occur on the eve of Christmas,” he said. “Whatever the motivation, this was despicable and cowardly act. I want to reassure all Australians this is an isolated incident incident.” He said the alleged perpetrator, Saeed Noori, came to Australia as a refugee and “has a history of serious mental illness and drug abuse”. “He has said in a number of what police are describing as ‘utterings’ that he attributes his actions to perceived mistreatment of muslims,” Mr Turnbull said.

    A historian of conservatism looks back at how he and his peers failed to anticipate the rise of the president. --- Until Nov. 8, 2016, historians of American politics shared a rough consensus about the rise of modern American conservatism. It told a respectable tale. By the end of World War II, the story goes, conservatives had become a scattered and obscure remnant, vanquished by the New Deal and the apparent reality that, as the critic Lionel Trilling wrote in 1950, liberalism was “not only the dominant but even the sole intellectual tradition.” Year Zero was 1955, when William F....

    When Trump hosted Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe in February, news of a North Korea missile test interrupted the proceedings, turning a dining area into a socially awkward situation room. Another test came last week, just before a visit to the Florida resort by Chinese president Xi Jinping. The world is, of course, accustomed to attention-seeking military stunts from North Korea. It’s just that they’re getting harder to dismiss. The rogue nation established its nuclear prowess years ago, and its missile technology appears to be advancing at an alarming rate. Some analysts believe it could have the ability to hit...

    As someone who works in the stockmarket, I've been around long enough to have followed Trump's career for awhile. But this documentary had so many things I did not know, including his ability to rescue New York as it was literally crumbling. I think you will enjoy this film. It made me so sure we did good to make him president. Caveat: It's 1 hour 44 minutes. I loved ever minute.
