With less than two weeks until Election Day, Donald Trump is, for the most part, still insisting to his supporters that he’s in the lead. While he conceded in one radio interview Monday that he was “somewhat behind in the polls,” Trump said the same day that “I really believe we are winning” and claimed that “Democrats are making up phony polls.” Members of his campaign, though, are openly admitting that the businessman is lagging behind. Trump’s campaign manager, pollster Kellyanne Conway, also conceded that the GOP nominee was trailing, saying Sunday “we are behind.” Although Trump says he no longer believes the polls , his internal data apparently mirrors what publicly available surveys are showing
The deposition transcript for Taylor Swift ’s countersuit against a Denver radio DJ who she says grabbed her inappropriately has been released. David Mueller initially filed a lawsuit against Swift , claiming he lost his job after being accused of inappropriately touching the singer during a meet-and-greet session at Denver’s Pepsi Center in 2013. Swift countersued , alleging Mueller “intentionally reached under her skirt, and groped with his hand an intimate part of her body in an inappropriate manner, against her will, and without her permission.” In the transcript from her July 26 deposition , Swift described the incident in detail. “Right as the moment came for us to pose for the photo, he took his hand and put it up my dress and grabbed onto my ass cheek, and no matter how much I scooted over it was still there,” she said. “It was not an accident, it was completely intentional, and I have never been so sure of anything in my life.” The “Blank Space” singer recalled feeling “violated in a way I had never experienced before.” “I remember saying how a meet-and-greet is supposed to be a situation where you’re thanking people for coming, you’re supposed to be welcoming people into your home, which is the arena for that day, and for someone to violate that hospitality in that way, I was completely stunned,” she said

With the first day of summer less than two weeks away, it’s the perfect time to talk about enjoying the sun safely, cooling down with healthy sips, and exercising in the great outdoors. It’s one of my favorite times of the year because we have more time to relax and if we’re lucky enough, take a well-deserved vacation. Before you kick back at the beach, pool, or simply on your back porch, remember to keep these summer safety tips in mind.

I grew up in a home in Delaware listening to voices speak Turkish in the kitchen while I watched English television in the living room. Like many immigrant children, conversations took place in multiple languages in my house. And like many immigrant families, my parents understood that while there was no requirement to abandon their heritage when moving to America, the limited availability of foreign media in that era meant certain cultural sacrifices.

When the United Nations convenes this week for its High Level Meeting on HIV/AIDS, the corridors will be buzzing with talk of “the end of AIDS.” UNAIDS tells us that it will happen provided key testing and treatment targets, including doubling the number of people on antiretroviral treatment, are achieved within four years. UNAIDS and major funders have determined that a “fast-track” strategy–focusing on a subset of countries with highest transmission–is the best way to reach these goals

Last month, four days after Bahrain’s Foreign Minister Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed Al-Khalifa stood next to Secretary John Kerry at a press conference and announced that dissident Zainab Al Khawaja and her baby son Abdulhadi would be released from jail, I wrote a piece here pointing out that four days was a long time to fill in some paperwork and find the prison key. Tomorrow will be 50 days, and she’s still in jail. You can fly to the moon and back, sail the Atlantic and climb Mount Everest in 50 days if you put your mind to it.
