    Babcock & Wilcox will slash 30% of its renewable energy workforce and implement cost-saving measures to combat falling revenues. [B&W] 2017 Q3 revenues stood at $408.7 million, falling 0.5% compared to Q3 2016. [B&W] embarked on restructuring in June 2016 after projections showed that coal utilization will decline faster than previously forecast. B&W then said it would shed 200 jobs and restructure its traditional power business that serves coal-fired power generation... ...its power segment, nearly half of B&Ws revenue stream, saw a 4.5% loss compared to the prior year. ... Lower revenues were also due to the down turn in...

    Hillary Clinton blamed her 2016 presidential election loss on a variety of sources including Russian hackers, the Democratic Party, former FBI Director James Comey, the media, social media and misogyny in a lengthy interview Wednesday. Clinton struck a far more defiant tone in the appearance at Recode's Code Conference than she had during her previous post-election accounts. While Clinton briefly apologized for using a private email server for official emails while she was secretary of State, much of the interview saw Clinton listing the external factors she felt led to her loss. "I was the victim of a...

    Barack Obama's former White House communications director, Jen Psaki, appeared Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union," where she pushed back against Hillary Clinton's explanation for her 2016 presidential election loss. Host Jake Tapper asked Psaki what she thought of Clinton's statement on Tuesday in which she blamed her loss on FBI Director James Comey and Russian hackings. "I was on the way to winning until the combination of Jim Comey's letter on Oct. 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared offand the evidence for that...

    When a party loses an election, the first thing they traditionally do is reflect on why they lost and how better to ensure victory next time around. But it has taken the Democrats a while to get to this position. They first began the blame game: Racists and Misogynists etc Then they tried to hold up all government business to make Donald Trump seem ineffectual (it takes a lot of cash to pay these protestors day in day out). And finally, they decided to get to the business of opposition government and examine their mistakes. And what they found should...
  • OF COURSE! Obama Blames Democrat Losses On His Favorite Boogeyman: FOX News

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | 11/30/16 | Aleister
    During his presidency, Obama has presided over the biggest losses for the Democratic Party since the early 1900s but he is completely incapable of taking any responsibility for this. Our biased and corrupt media attacks Trump relentlessly then runs away crying every time he hits them back. Obama gets nothing but praise from the media but cant stand the fact that one network (FOX) has dared to question him on occasion. Hes been at war with FOX News since the beginning of his presidency and theyre still his favorite scapegoat. Heres what Obama said in a recent interview with Rolling...

    Last night I went to bed without knowing how the most important election of my lifetime would end. I had my hopes that the people of this country would do the right thing and elect Donald Trump but like most here I had my hopes crushed more often than I care to remember. This morning I woke to Willie, my dog, my best friend, my companion, in distress. He was gagging and unable to stand. As he lay on the floor he lost control of his bowels and bladder and I knew that this was maybe the end. I quickly...

    USA Today publisher Gannett, suffering from the ongoing print-ad declines that have hurt the broader newspaper industry, is cutting jobs as it reported a loss in its latest quarter. The company said it is cutting 2 percent of its staff. Gannett had nearly 19,000 employees at the end of 2015, suggesting more than 300 jobs were lost. Gannett spokeswoman Amber Allman did not reply to a question asking how many employees are losing their jobs.
  • Gov. Jerry Brown sells his Oakland home for a loss

    08/02/2016 2:51:09 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 14 replies
    Gov. Jerry Brown is no longer an Oakland homeowner. The governor and First Lady Anne Gust Brown closed on the sale of their Oakland Hills home last week, completing the journey that began late last year when the first couple moved into the historic governor's mansion in Sacramento. The real estate website Curbed San Francisco reported on Monday that the 4,147-square-foot home closed on July 30 with a sale price of $2.375 million. That's less than the Browns were asking for the home when it went on the market in April, and also slightly less than they reportedly paid for...

    I just have a few words to say about my father. He recently passed away. I am doing something bad (in FR), because I am posting, and then going to bed. And hopefully falling asleep. Although I will have my tablet. So I won't be posting and running. ;) :) haven't slept much since my father died. I was just wondering, how do you deal with becoming an adult orphan? When there is no one you can call for advice? Whenever I see the Cubs, Sox, Blackhawks, Bulls, and later, "da Bears," I want to call him. I cannot even...

    Today, we found out that we've lost our 22 year old son. He'd been missing for a couple of days and they found the body this evening. He wrecked his motorcycle and ended up in a ditch where nobody could see. I don't know how to do this. I don't know how to accept this. I don't know what to do with this. And I can't pray. I'm not mad at G-d or anything like that. I mean that I have no words. I don't know how. Can you please pray for me? Just add me to your prayer list...

    So this is the latest Republican establishment (GOPe) talking point… Former Governor John Sununu, a Jeb Bush supporter, told America’s Newsroom if Donald Trump only wins New Hampshire by 12 points he loses–Keep telling yourself that, John. “I think Trump will win. I don’t think he’ll win by as much as he thinks he is and as much as the polls say. If he doesn’t win by 12 points I think the perception will be that he lost.’

    If anyone wonders why Donald Trump has been like Teflon throughout this election cycle, it's because he's a brilliant strategist when it comes to manipulating the media, his supporters, and even his detractors. Skipping the debate may turn out to be his coup de grâce against the competition. Donald Trump knows that whether or not he attends the Fox News Iowa debate, he’s probably going to lose the state. He knows this because he’s proven to be a master at campaign strategy, albeit an unconventional one. Most of us expected his early missteps to be indicators that he would fade...

    Hi. I woke up yesterday and was talking on the phone with a friend who was watching the Pope's visit. She said, "Oh, by the way, Yogi Berra died." Let us say that I reacted strongly. Mass media has done something for us. It has connected us with people we'll never meet on this earth, and sometimes makes them feel like part of the family. You didn't have to love the Yankees to love Yogi Berra. Despite his fame, he was a simple (not in the sense of dumb, please don't misunderstand!), humble family man who was able to laugh...

    How ironic: Twitters stock plunged 18% today because of a tweet. The company was supposed to announce earnings after the close of the market, but the website Selerity tweeted them beforehand, reports the Wall Street Journal. It was bad news: First-quarter revenue was $436 million, about $20 million below estimates, and shares tumbled instantly. Trading was even halted temporarily following the early release of results. Twitter also warned investors that second-quarter revenue will be lower than expected.

    Let the soul-searching begin. Our party has a problem, says Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Broward County congresswoman and Democratic National Committee chairwoman, in a new video responding to her partys midterm shellacking by the GOP. **SNIP** We know were right on the issues. The American people believe in the causes were fighting for. But the electoral success we have when our presidential nominee is able to make the case to the country as a whole doesnt translate in other elections. Thats why we lost in 2010. And its why we lost on Tuesday. Weve got to do better.

    Today is my youngest brother's birthday. He died a week before his 51st birthday. In his honor, and to show what kind of person he was, I thought I'd share something he wrote for our Mother's Day in 2010 for her, while she was dying of esophageal cancer. "Promises (Between a Mother and a Son)" Dear Mother, When I was conceived, you promised to bring me into this world healthy. And you did. When I was young, you promised to love me and nurture me. And you did. When things got rough, and you were all alone, you promised to...

    Desperate to tie David Brat's shocking defeat tonight of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in Virginia's Republican Congressional Primary to something other than voter resistance to illegal-immigrant amnesty, some on the left are already implying that Cantor's Jewish faith had something to do with the result. The fact that the seven-term Congressman has, as far as I can tell, never gotten grief of any kind from either party about his religious affiliation seems not to matter. After the jump, readers will find a couple of religion-tainted tweets from bona fide members of the liberal media elite, followed by interesting items...

And if you're a responsible gun owner, why wouldn't you go through a background check? The only people who don't want background checks are fugitives, tax dodgers and terrorists.

    If you have experienced tremendous adversity within this past year, how would you react at the thought of Giving Thanks? While many people would try to focus on what happened to them, and why, how would you cope with adverse circumstances, and hardships? In this special Thanksgiving edition of Making Sense with Rob Case, we look at the life of the Apostle Paul, who had experienced so many difficulties, adverse circumstances, and hardships that would, upon a close, contemplative look, make ours pale by comparison. And amidst everything Paul went through, he was able to tell the people of Thessalonica,...
