    The Truth About Cars ^ | 3/31/2016 | Steph Williams
    If you live in California and your demographics are right, your electric car dream is within reach. Yes, even you, baristas and struggling actors! The website Leasehackr stumbled upon a killer deal for lower-income Californians (assuming they live near charging stations), and spelled out how leftover 2015 Ford Focus Electrics can be leased for essentially nothing. If your personal life aligns with Ford’s customer incentives and California’s revamped EV rebate program, it can be done. First, you have to make less than $35,600 a year, or be a member of a household of four with a combined income of $72,900...

    There is no real litmus test for Conservatism; as should be obvious to anyone on brief reflection. Conservatism is--and always has been, as the term connotes--about preserving what one considers important, in a social, cultural, historic & genetic heritage. One person may be more focused on one aspect, another on another. There is no natural law that demands that all have the same focus--indeed, the notion flies in the face of the concept that man is Blessed with Free Will; with freedom to decide priorities--and, of course, bear the consequences. Conservatism is about preserving social--both cultural & material, as well...

    .....FIFA, the powerful and polarizing governing body for soccer, came under prosecutorial assault from two fronts Wednesday. Acting on an indictment by the U.S. Justice Department, Swiss police arrested several top FIFA officials, including two vice presidents, during an overnight raid in Zurich on charges of corruption Wednesday. The U.S. investigation targets alleged wrongdoing that spans 24 years. U.S. prosecutors issued arrest warrants for 14 people, on charges ranging from money laundering to fraud and racketeering.

    RANCHO MIRAGE, California (AP) — A White House summit this week on countering violent extremism will not focus exclusively on threats from the Islamic State group, senior administration officials said Monday. While the militant group, which has killed several Americans and others it had been holding hostage, poses a near-term threat to the United States, one of three officials previewing the summit for reporters on Monday said violent extremists "come in all shapes and sizes." The three-day conference will highlight both domestic and international efforts to prevent extremists and their supporters from radicalizing, recruiting and inspiring others, particularly disaffected young...

    **SNIP** Eight of the eleven participants in the Ohio group- independents or independent leaners- voted for President Obama in 2012, but not one of them described themselves as “proud” or “satisfied” with him. Instead, they said that they were ‘disappointed’ with him, and used words like “inexperienced,” “powerless,” “cautious,” “timid,” and “overwhelmed” to describe him. One participant told Hart: “I was really excited going into his first term. His first term was certainly a disappointment.” one focus group participant shared.”

    A name makes all the difference in the fight between Ford and Toyota over who has the top-selling car in the world. Ford on Wednesday claimed that crown for its Focus compact during the first half of the year, based on registration data gathered by the R.L. Polk & Co. research firm. … But Toyota disputes Ford’s leadership. The Japanese automaker has said it sold a Corolla hatchback under the Matrix name, and it sells cars that are nearly identical to the Corolla under different names in countries outside the U.S. …

    Focus on Benghazi and the illegal IRS abuse against political enemies. Who doesn't believe that the Moochelle heckler was staged? Sex abuse in the military a major story? Really? The foolish IRS overspending? That is old news. Yeah, the last two are infuriating, but they won't send Obama allies to jail. We need to focus on the scandals that will send people to jail... and could bring down a presidency. The AP story and even the massive phone records grab are important because it engages an otherwise sleepy leftist press.

    The Passive-Aggressive PresidencyObama appears quite unique in presidential annals. A campaign promised a fundamental paradigm shift, the creation of the Magical Land of Hope and Change. After victory, a strange lassitude followed. That is, with the exception of “Health Care,” the President took demonstrable action on very little else of the nation’s business, creating the extra-constitutional “Czar” system and appointing a radical “Team” to run things without much direction or input from him. This strange passivity is delivering the fundamental change promised. His behavior patterns fell into place. I am fairly sure that a psychiatrist might call them “Passive/Aggressive. It...

    A focus group of media professionals convened by Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly burst into a heated yelling match on Wednesday during a discussion of CNN anchor Candy Crowley’s performance as the moderator of the second presidential debate. RELATED: Candy Crowley’s Debate Moderation Exemplifies Why Americans Do Not Trust Their Media Several of the Republican focus group participants said that they believed Crowley’s fact checking was inappropriate, both because she was supposed to be the impartial moderator and because the fact that she checked was debatable. Media writer and entrepreneur Carol Roth said that it was “clear that she was...

    National Journal ^ | March 2, 2012 | Journal Staff with Sarah B. Boxer and Rebecca Kaplan
    In a potentially ominous Super Tuesday setback for Rick Santorum, a campaign filing mishap in Ohio could leave him ineligible to be awarded 18 Buckeye State district delegates -- more than a quarter of the total at stake there, ABC News reported Friday. Ohio has 66 delegates total, with 63 at stake on Tuesday. Santorum failed to qualify for any district delegates in three Ohio congressional districts representing nine delegates because he didn't turn in names there. ABC News reported that in six other congressional districts, the former Pennsylvania senator's campaign submitted fewer names than required to be eligible for...

    The topic, I believe, is called "focus". Windows XP Professional, two monitor setup which has worked without issue for over a year. Still works, with the following quirk: Suppose I am sending an email and I wish to attach pix which I am selecting from Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer) on the left side and my email front end on the right side. The email front end is on top of any open windows on the right. When I click on the left screen, the right screen (apparently) reverts to whichever window it thinks is "most important"...but in any event,...
