    Tony Hsieh could buy a private island if he wanted to. The Zappos CEO has a reported net worth of $840 million. But Hsieh chooses to live in a Las Vegas trailer park he owns, according to a recent profile in The New York Times. The trailer park is "crammed with shiny silver Airstreams that are rented out to visiting computer coders," according to David Gelles at The Times. Hsieh lives in a trailer in the community he calls "Llamapolis" with his pet alpaca. The trailer park is part of Hsieh's $350 million investment into making Las Vegas a metropolitan...

    The two most meaningless words in Hollywood today are "spoiler alert." Movie critics traditionally use the words before revealing a particular scene or action while writing a review. It's a considerate thing to do, but hardly necessary in the gutless climate that now pervades the selling of movies. There is nothing for critics to spoil anymore. Everything is revealed.

    While addressing college students in Richmond, VA, President Obama was surprised to learn that schools use trailers, also called 'modular buildings' or 'modular classrooms.' During his visit Obama said he was approached by an educator who mentioned she teaches in a trailer. Obama did not mention that the teacher had a problem with her situation, but he made it clear this was unacceptable. "I just -- in the back, I was taking some photos with folks who had helped out to organize this event, and there was a young lady who is a teacher. And she said, “I heard your...

    Hurricane Katrina victims around the Gulf Coast who were told to vacate their temporary trailers by the end of May will instead be allowed to buy them for $5 or less, White House officials announced on Wednesday. The Department of Housing and Urban Development will also give the 3,450 families still in trailers or temporary housing — including many elderly, poor and disabled people — priority for $50 million in permanent housing vouchers. The money for the vouchers was appropriated by Congress last year. Some of those living in trailers are destitute and have no other housing. Others, including many...

The administration also will make available $50 million in rental vouchers to income-eligible trailer occupants who move to targeted housing projects, and take over from Louisiana the job of helping residents find permanent homes, said a senior White House official, speaking on the condition of anonymity before the formal announcement. "We knew we needed to bring this program to a close," the official said. "We also...

    In a move that will allow movie studios to inject racy jokes into the trailers they use to promote their more adult-oriented films, the nation's largest theater chain has decided to permit restricted, "red band" trailers in its multiplexes. The move by Regal Entertainment Group, which operates 6,388 screens in 39 states and the District of Columbia, likely will lead to similar decisions at a number of the nation's other major chains. As last week's ShoWest convention of movie theater owners in Las Vegas drew to a close, the Knoxville, Tenn.-based circuit began notifying the studios of its decision. The...

Wilbert Ross, president of Katrina Rebirth Promise Land Inc., an organization that represents about 3,500 residents dislodged from their New Orleans homes by Hurricane Katrina, said the federal government last April cut off a food service and vouchers to pay for propane to heat the trailers, cook food and...

    WASHINGTON - The government has no plans to move at least half of the 10,000 emergency housing trailers sitting empty in Hope, Ark., saying they may be needed for the 2006 hurricane season. The Federal Emergency Management Agency detailed its plan to keep the trailers at the Hope municipal airport in a letter to Sen.

The letter did not mention Johnson's request, but FEMA spokesman Aaron Walker said Friday that federal law says the trailers must be used for...

    The White House faced new questions Wednesday about President Bush's contention three years ago that weapons of mass destruction had been found in Iraq. The Washington Post reported that a Pentagon-sponsored team of experts determined in May 2003 that two small trailers were not used to make biological weapons. Yet two days after the team sent its findings to Washington in a classified report, Bush declared just the opposite. "We have found the weapons of mass destruction," Bush said in an interview with a Polish TV station. "We found biological laboratories." Bush spokesman Scott McClellan said Wednesday that Bush was...

"The homes are sinking in the mud and their frames are bending from sitting on trailers with no support." The soil under the mobile homes is so soft, that every time it rains, the mobile homes sink....

    After recently denouncing FEMA for not bringing trailers to the city fast enough, New Orleans City Council members Thursday blasted the group for attempting to put trailers at playground sites without informing them. “It's moronic to even think about putting trailers in the batch where 3,000 kids play soccer,” said councilman Jay Batt. Nearly a dozen parks and playgrounds across New Orleans are being considered for trailers. FEMA said that is to help meet the incredible demand for housing. They defend the idea of putting trailers in playgrounds because they said many small neighborhoods cannot accommodate trailers on the streets,...

    When Bourget's of the South, the politically connected River Ridge custom motorcycle shop that's won almost $108 million in federal trailer contracts, started looking for trailers to sell after Hurricane Katrina, it encountered two problems. The first was Bourget's lack of a license to sell new trailers. The second was Bourget's lack of a franchise agreement -- an accord between manufacturers and dealers to sell specific brands of trailers. In Louisiana, state law requires recreational vehicle dealers to possess one state license to sell new trailers and an agreement from the manufacturer to sell its products. But in a matter...

    A trailer found by the U.S. in Northern Iraq last year was likely used by Saddam Hussein's regime as a mobile biological weapons laboratory, and not to fill hydrogen balloons as some in Britain and the U.S. have charged, a view supported by exclusive photos obtained by WorldNetDaily that for the first time offer inside views of the trailer components. Kurdish forces seized the trailer in April 2003 at a checkpoint near Mosul in northern Iraq. At the time, the unit was hailed as the closest U.S. forces may had come to finding a "smoking gun" in their search for...

In an airborne news conference on the way home from NATO talks in Brussels, Belgium, Powell said he had been given solid information about the trailers that he told the Security Council in February 2003 were designed for making biological weapons. But now, Powell said, ``it appears not to be the case that it was that solid.'' He said he hoped the intelligence commission appointed by President...

    ASHINGTON, Aug. 8 — Engineering experts from the Defense Intelligence Agency have come to believe that the most likely use for two mysterious trailers found in Iraq was to produce hydrogen for weather balloons rather than to make biological weapons, government officials say. The classified findings by a majority of the engineering experts differ from the view put forward in a white paper made public on May 28 by the C.I.A. and the Defense Intelligence Agency, which said that the trailers were for making biological weapons. That report had dismissed as a "cover story" claims by senior Iraqi scientists that...

The confirmation came as the Senate prepared to vote today on a parliamentary inquiry into...
