    New York Times ^ | 04/19/2018 | By MARK LANDLER
    PALM BEACH, Fla. — President Trump declared on Wednesday that he would scrap a planned summit meeting with North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, or even walk out of the session while it was underway, if his diplomatic overture was not heading toward success. Mr. Trump continued to express optimism — verging on eagerness — about sitting down with the North’s reclusive leader. But as the momentum for a meeting grows in both Washington and East Asia, the president acknowledged that it was a perilous undertaking that could still end in failure. “If I think that it’s a meeting that is...

    According to a criminal complaint, Mills had been in the woods, was covered in blood and had a pocket knife in her pants when she arrived at another residence. The homeowners called authorities after they offered to give her a ride and she refused to leave the property. The complaint said Mills gave a sheriff's deputy a false identity and claimed she had been thrown through a glass door but wouldn't disclose her attacker. While Mills was being taken for questioning, she told the deputy, "you have to take me back and let me get my heads," the complaint said.

    Russia's ruble experienced its biggest one-day fall for over two years on Monday and stocks in major Russian companies also slid, as investors reacted to a new round of U.S. sanctions targeting some of Russia's biggest tycoons. The impact of the new sanctions could threaten Russia's fragile economic recovery, which was only just beginning to take hold after the first major wave of sanctions against Russia, introduced in response to Moscow's annexation of Crimea in 2014.

    Those of us who try to convince liberals of the folly of gun control often point to the fact that, in an imperfect world, it would be impossible to confiscate every weapon from every individual. Consequently, any gun control efforts end up punishing the law-abiding while leaving the criminals armed and better able to prey upon the innocent. We also point to the inevitable slippery-slope, full well knowing that’s what may of these would-be tyrants are counting on. Sure, they’re going after the so-called “assault rifles” now, because the Parkland shooter used one and they’re really scary looking, but does...

    Facebook was in talks with top hospitals and other medical groups as recently as last month about a proposal to share data about the social networks of their most vulnerable patients. The idea was to build profiles of people that included their medical conditions, information that health systems have, as well as social and economic factors gleaned from Facebook. Facebook said the project is on hiatus so it can focus on "other important work, including doing a better job of protecting people's data."

    Black activists aren’t satisfied with Florida Democratic National Committee (DNC) member John Parker’s explanation that he meant to say “people of color” but used the expression “colored people” instead. They want him to resign. Parker told Politico that he was trying to say “people of color” but didn’t get it right. Parker’s own wife has joined the chorus of African-Americans and Democratic officials who say the DNC committeeman from Duval County, Florida, needs to step aside. Parker made the remarks on Jan. 22 while speaking at a party meeting in Jacksonville and apologized after the initial uproar from those present...

    President Trump said that his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner "looks like a little boy, like a child," a new book claims. Author Ronald Kessler interviewed Trump, members of the president's family, and many current and former White House officials for The Trump White House: Changing the Rules of the Game, which was released Monday. Kessler wrote that Trump made the demeaning reference to Kushner while watching him on television in the company of other aides.

    A former Obama campaign official is claiming that Facebook knowingly allowed them to mine massive amounts of Facebook data — more than they would’ve allowed someone else to do — because they were supportive of the campaign. In a Sunday tweet thread, Carol Davidson, former director of integration and media analytics for Obama for America, said the 2012 campaign led Facebook to “suck out the whole social graph” and target potential voters. They would then use that data to do things like append their email lists. When Facebook found out what they were doing, they were “surprised,” she said. But...

    First, the question: If Jeff Sessions has appointed a prosecutor to work with Inspector General Horowitz, why do congressional reps keep asking for a second special counsel? The answer is a lot simpler than we might think: They don’t know. The legislative branch of the government doesn’t know what the criminal investigations are of the executive branch of government; AND AG Jeff Sessions has repeatedly said his intention is to restore the proper, appropriate and professional standards of the U.S. Department of Justice. (ie. no talking about criminal investigations) Within this specific investigation there is a triple role. ¹A DOJ...

    President Donald Trump plans to name Larry Kudlow as his top economic advisor, sources told CNBC. Trump could announce his decision to choose Kudlow as his National Economic Council director as soon as Thursday. The president offered the economist and senior CNBC contributor the job on Tuesday night, and Kudlow accepted, a person familiar with the matter told CNBC. Kudlow, 70, would replace Gary Cohn, who resigned last week after losing his fight against tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. Kudlow advocates for free trade and generally opposes tariffs. When Cohn left, Kudlow expressed his disappointment with the move. On...
  • A restaurant is charging white customers more to highlight racial wealth inequality

    A restaurant in New Orleans is hoping to raise awareness of racial wealth differences in the country by charging white customers more. SAARTJ is a pop-up restaurant in the Louisiana city run by local Nigerian chef Tunde Wey who will be charging white customers $18 (£13) extra for their meal. Much like the cafe in Melbourne, Australia which charged a 'man-tax' due to the gender pay gap, SAARTJ is charging an increase to highlight the racial pay gap in New Orleans. In 2013, a study found that the average household income of an African-American in the city was 54 per...

    Disney's big-budget adaptation of the best-selling novel "A Wrinkle in Time" falters in many of the same ways the book does— but there was one major change made in the movie from the novel. The film's version of events strips away explicit mention of God or religion, instead trimming down the central conflict to one between "evil" and "light." Though the film adaptation has several critical flaws...the removal of L'Engle's religious overtones leads to a key issue. ....Author Madeleine L'Engle, who died in 2007 at age 88, spoke about the importance of her own Christian faith as it relates to...

    The Florida House gave final legislative approval Wednesday to a bill banning gun sales to anyone under 21, sending the measure to Gov. Rick Scott, who has not said whether he will sign it into law. More significantly, there is serious consideration in Congress of a similar national ban. On top of this, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Walmart, L.L. Bean and Kroger have all moved to discontinue gun sales to anyone under age 21.

"Bush is often heard to remark, unable to stifle his trademark smirk: 'Sorta makes me look pretty good, doesn't it?' " National Journal reported. "He's shaking his head like everyone else wondering why they can't get their act together," the source added....
