Anyone who thinks a minor event like voting is going to shut down the television news industry’s coverage of the 2016 presidential election probably also thinks The Walking Dead is a spinoff from the Grateful Dead. Nope, in all likelihood Tuesday’s voting will give the TV news channels a chance to say, “Hmmm, someone won, that’s interesting,” and wade right back in. Truth is, we’ve learned a lot both from and about contemporary television news in this election.
Don’t do this… A big obstacle to finding love after 50 happens when you’re NOT putting yourself in places where you can be seen and found by available men on a DAILY BASIS! Men can’t find you when you’re hiding every night at home. I know it feels great after a long day at work to snuggle up with a good book, your fave TV show or your cat or dog for some unconditional loving
It seems that offensive antics are par for the course for these two “golfers.” Evan Shay and Morgan Ruig, both 28-year-olds from Brisbane, Australia, claim to have passed themselves off as the Australian national team for an international golf tournament in North Korea as a joke. “Initially we just said we were a couple of Australian golfers and they said, ‘You are the Australian team,’ and we sort of didn’t say no,” said Ruig, a real estate agent who told 9News the stunt started when the pair was in Beijing for a polo tournament. The two are now reveling in their feat after returning safely from a country the U.S. sanctioned earlier this year for human rights abuses . The media is largely applauding the men for carrying out an epic “prank ” or dismissing them with a wink as harmless hooligans .
When Jeffrey Robinson’s Trump Tower debuted in July 2012, it failed to receive much attention, despite boasting the tagline, “The sexiest novel of the decade,” and an endorsement from Donald Trump himself.
As we all know, James Comey, the director of the FBI, shook up the presidential election by informing Congress that the FBI is looking into additional emails related to its investigation of Hillary Clinton, later reported to have been found on a computer used by her close aide Huma Abedin and her lecherous husband Anthony Wiener. Director Comey said in his brief message that the emails have not been reviewed and may not be significant. This announcement was contrary to the Justice Department’s longstanding policy of not commenting on ongoing investigations and not interfering in elections within the 60 days prior to the vote
While Donald Trump ’s racism , xenophobia and sexism have drawn considerable scorn, there has been some confusion about his stance on the queer community.
GETTSYBURG, Pa. – U.S
Adult film star Jessica Drake on Saturday became the 12th woman in recent weeks to allege that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump sexually mistreated her. Drake said she met Trump at a golf tournament in 2006 in Lake Tahoe, California, where he invited her to come to his hotel suite at the end of the day. She didn’t feel comfortable going alone, she said, so she invited two female friends to go with her.
Donald Trump spoke today at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and offered a new “contract between Donald J. Trump and the American voter,” which is pretty funny given that Trump has failed to honor hundreds of contracts. So I’m not sure we should sign it
When two dogs lovers get hitched, it looks a little something like this: On Saturday, bride Kathryn Dombrowski, who volunteers at animal rescue Secondhand Hounds , married Brad Ziemer at Rush Creek Golf Club in Maple Grove, Minnesota. Instead of having their wedding party hold floral bouquets for the professional group photos, they asked them to hold pit bull rescue puppies to spread awareness for the “adopt don’t shop” movement ― much like a bridal party in Pennsylvania did last month. Dombrowski told The Huffington Post that she and Ziemer managed to keep the 13 dogs a surprise from their parents, bridesmaids, groomsmen, flower girl and ring bearer. “They all thought we were heading outside to take pictures and to their surprise and delight, there were pit bull puppies!” she said

Last Sunday afternoon I drove to Fordham University in the Bronx, where I was a guest on Dan Romanello’s Group Harmony Review over Fordham’s radio station, WFUV. As you approach the main entrance to Fordham, you pass the baseball diamond, home field of the Fordham Rams. You park and you walk to the basement of Keating Hall, where WFUV has become as professional an operation as you’ll find at any college-based radio station anywhere

Just one night into the Democratic National Convention , things are looking a whole lot brighter for the environment under a potential Hillary Clinton presidency than anything we heard in Cleveland last week.

This Valentine’s Day, I will be alone. As couples kick off a romantic weekend together, I will be catching up on work and household chores, cooking dinner for one, binge-watching Korean dramas, and eventually tucking myself into bed alone.

Many associate the end of summer with the return to the grind — but it doesn’t have to be so! As professional vacationers (hey, it actually can be a lot of work — and someone’s got to do it), we here at Oyster.com would beg to differ. The fall season can actually be a prime time for a getaway; even in popular autumnal locales, rates across the board generally aren’t at their very highest, and airline prices certainly aren’t soaring like they are around the holiday season

“More than ever conservation needs new ideas, risky ventures to find out what will work and what won’t; biodiversity doesn’t benefit from us calling each other stupid as a substitute for rational discourse.” (Harry Greene, 2015, Pleistocene rewilding and the future of biodiversity, in Ben Minteer and Stephen Pyne (editors), After Preservation: Saving American Nature in the Age of Humans ) The broad and interdisciplinary field of conservation biology has received a good deal of attention in the past two weeks that has stimulated researchers and others to weigh in on what sorts of human-animal interactions are permissible as we try to save nonhuman animals (animals) and their homes.
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — As Hillary Rodham Clinton walked among the booths of funnel cakes and corn dogs at the Iowa State Fair, trailed by a massive pack of media and onlookers, Donald Trump’s helicopter circled the fairgrounds in the air above.

We’re going to begin today with a wrapup of the week that was in the presidential campaigns, and as befitting his status as the Republican frontrunner, we’re going to start with Donald Trump (if you’re sick of hearing about Trump, just skip down eight or ten paragraphs and continue reading).
