Obama's challenge at the annual gathering of world leaders is to cast the past eight years as ones of overall progress, without glossing over the profound problems that have eluded his diplomacy.

    Barack Obama was out stumping for the ailing Hillary Clinton today, but that didnt stop him from talking about himself. A lot. The president rallied with Clinton supporters in Philadelphia and when doing so, managed to mention himself 137 times. --- At one point, after running down a list of what he considered accomplishments of his presidency, someone in the audience shouted out about lower gas prices. Thank you for reminding me, he replied. Thanks, Obama, he said to himself. He later took the opportunity to vent about the way the media is covering the campaign.

    GOP nominee Donald Trump did not give a rally speech Wednesday night in Phoenix, Arizona. He offered a detailed policy speech to the crowd about his immigration policy. Pretty early on, it was evident those media reports about a “softening” of his immigration plan were way off base. A few hours before his address, Trump met Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto in Mexico, where the two offered a cordial joint press conference to reporters. We want to “build a fair relationship between the two countries,” Trump said in Phoenix. Both countries are going to win as a result of his plan,...

    Science Daily ^ | 8/29/2016 | American Association for the Advancement of Science
    Dogs have the ability to distinguish vocabulary words and the intonation of human speech through brain regions similar to those that humans use, a new study reports. Attila Andics et al. note that vocabulary learning "does not appear to be a uniquely human capacity that follows from the emergence of language, but rather a more ancient function that can be exploited to link arbitrary sound sequences to meanings." Words are the basic building blocks of human languages, but they are hardly ever found in nonhuman vocal communications. Intonation is another way that information is conveyed through speech, where, for example,...

I think it's safe to say, if the results were good they would have been published.

    Donald Trump needed to give the speech of his life. He did that, and much more. He laid out an inspiring American Manifesto for our troubled times. And he did it his way. Not surprisingly, from start to finish, it is muscular and bold, leavened only by appeals to racial harmony and pledges of compassion for all. It offers a prominent nod to Bernie Sanders supporters in a bid to get some to jump the Democratic ship. Most important, it keeps faith with his campaign themes of putting forgotten Americans first. In contrasting his view with his opponents, the Republican...

A quick glance at Twitter confirmed that the usual cadre of east coast, RNC faithful, talking heads were trashing Trump. His speech was too dark, or it was negative, or it was fear mongering.

Long after we've forgotten Trump's closing speech - that paean to self, that nightmare portrait of an America where the lights have gone out - we will remember the savagery just...
