    In the first century, a doctor called Aretaeus of Cappadocia described the rotting smell of "Egyptian ulcers." Ancient Chinese medical literature mentions a disease called "children-killing carbuncle." In 17th century Spain there were references to an illness known as "the strangler." They were talking about diphtheria, a highly infectious respiratory disease that colonizes a person's nose and throat, creating a thick layer of dead cells that can block the airway. It has always had a reputation for sickening children. With the introduction of a highly effective vaccine in the 1920s and early '30s, diphtheria faded away in much of the...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton commented Thursday night on longtime NBC host Matt Lauer's firing, remarking that she believes in the concept of karma a little more "every day," Philly Voice reports. Clinton was speaking in Philadelphia as part of her national book tour promoting her memoir, "What Happened," which looks at her unsuccessful 2016 presidential campaign. “Every day I believe more in karma,” Clinton said when asked about Lauer's firing, before lumping him in with several other “men who shaped the narrative” who have been fired over similar allegations of sexual misconduct. “The only way we will get...

    NEW YORK (AP) — PBS says it is immediately halting distribution of Charlie Rose's interview program and CBS News suspended him following The Washington Post's report of eight women who accused the veteran newsman of multiple unwanted sexual advances and inappropriate behavior. The women, three of whom spoke on the record in the deeply-reported story, accused Rose of groping them, walking naked in front of them and relating an erotic dream. Rose told the Post that he was "deeply embarrassed" and apologized for his behavior. Rose's PBS show features his in-depth interviews with newsmakers....

    Radical liberals and others on the far-Left took to Twitter Monday morning to not only send their condolences to those affected by the massive shooting in Las Vegas, but also to use the event as a way to climb on their soapbox and politicize the incident. Among them was failed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who wasted no time in using the tragedy to her political advantage, tweeting:

    Allan Jones, CEO of Hardwick Clothing and Check Into Cash payday loan company, announced on Tuesday he is through with sponsoring the wardrobes and advertising on the NFL. Hardwick Clothing is America’s oldest suit maker. In his statement Jones said, “Our companies will not condone unpatriotic behavior!” The Times Free Press reported: Two years ago, Cleveland, Tenn., businessman Allan Jones was proudly showing off his newly acquired Hardwick Clothing-brand suits by providing the wardrobe for NBC’s on-air talent during the network’s broadcasts of NFL football games. But after NFL players and coaches challenged President Donald Trump and many took a...

    After the first two weeks of the NFL season, there’s a clear storyline that has emerged: Think pieces about the NFL’s quality of play are en vogue. From The Ringer’s Kevin Clark to Bill Barnwell of ESPN to that old NFL bible—The Weekly Standard—this week saw a ton of NFL observers examine the league’s quality of play as well as the perception behind that. The headline of Clark’s piece didn’t hold back: How Football Stopped Being Fun. How does that correlate with NFL ratings, which is more the focus of this column? Well, that depends on how you want to...

    If NFL fans continue to turn away from football, the TV networks could lose as much as $200 million in earnings, according to a new report. After ratings for Week Two crashed, adding to the angst already felt by a poor showing in Week 1, industry insiders and analysts are sounding the alarm. A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently. The worries over earnings are not allayed by...

    A German teenager who ran away to join ISIS may yet face the death penalty, Iraq's Prime Minister has warned. Linda Wenzel was dragged from the rubble in Mosul as Iraqi forces liberated the city in July and is now being held in Baghdad where her fate rests in the hands of the country's court system. The 16-year-old, who left her home in Pulsnitz, eastern Germany, last year to join the terror group, is desperate to return to Europe amid fears she could spend years in jail. But Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has now said Iraq's judiciary will decide...

    Monday in San Francisco, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was forced to leave her DREAMer press conference after being shouted down by protesters who said they are undocumented and unafraid. After over 20 minutes of chants, the protestors chanted “you have the audacity to tell us you have been fighting deportation.” Pelosi shot back “Yes, I am.” The group began chanting, “You are a liar.” She responded, “You don’t know what you are talking about.” The crowd continued chanting, “You are a liar.”

    For the last three weeks, Buddhist-majority Myanmar has systematically slaughtered civilians belonging to the Rohingya Muslim minority, forcing 270,000 to flee to neighboring Bangladesh — with Myanmar soldiers shooting at them even as they cross the border. “The Buddhists are killing us with bullets,” Noor Symon, a woman carrying her son, told a Times reporter. “They burned houses and tried to shoot us. They killed my husband by bullet.”

    For what seems like forever at this point, the NFL’s ratings and attendance numbers have been on the slide, at least partially due to the politicization of the sport following Colin Kaepernick’s protests of the National Anthem. I never saw it turning into much of an organized “boycott” as such things go, but I know anecdotally that a lot my friends on social media have given up in disgust and not been watching as many games.But the problems for the NFL are only growing it seems. Now the people on the other side of the issue – the ones...

  • Property taxes grow faster than Illinoisans’ ability to pay for them

    Illinois Policy ^ | July 16, 2017 | John Klingner
    Illinoisans already pay some of the highest, if not the highest, property taxes in the nation. An analysis of the past 15 years shows that property taxes are growing far faster than residents’ ability to pay for them. Between 2000 and 2015, the total property taxes Illinois local governments collected doubled. Household incomes in Illinois, in contrast, only grew 31 percent over that time period. Because taxes have grown so much faster than income, the burden property taxes impose on Illinoisans has grown significantly. In 2000, property taxes consumed 4.4 percent of household incomes. In 2015, property taxes consumed 6.7...

    Concern about the political effects of a deeply unpopular county pop tax — on top of recent state and city tax increases — on Thursday hung over the first day of Cook County Democrats' endorsement session for next year's primary election. Northwest Side Ald. Nicholas Sposato, 38th, said he expects some backlash against the pop tax "down the road in the election next year." People complaining to him about the tax "are blaming the Democrats," he said, adding that the income tax increase would compound the problem. Democrats last month overrode Gov. Bruce Rauner's veto of a state income tax...

    ‘This is not about punishing Great Britain,’ declared Sigmar Gabriel, Germany’s interim foreign secretary, on his recent visit to London. I fell about laughing, because this is precisely what’s going on. It is as obvious to us Germans as it is to the Brits: the EU cannot tolerate the thought of a successful United Kingdom outside the Brussels sphere of influence because, if that were allowed to happen, others might dare to start thinking about leaving the club too. Everything we hear from Brussels flows from this. The EU presents itself as a champion of free trade, especially when its...

    The March of Folly rolls on at full speed in the US military under the Trump administration and the leadership of General Mattis in the Pentagon. In 2016, with a stroke of a pen, former Secretary of Defense Ash Carter, under the auspices of the Marxist Obama administration, authorized women to serve in the combat arms and special operations forces of the US military. For the uninitiated, the combat arms are the grunts, the tankers, the gun bunnies, the cavalry and the engineers. Special operations forces consist of the Rangers, the Green Berets, Delta Force, the Navy SEALs, Marine Recon...
