WILMINGTON, N.C./MIAMI – Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton traded barbs as they entered the last three days of campaigning in the U.S. presidential election with competing events on Saturday in Florida, a swing state that could prove decisive in Tuesday’s vote. Clinton and Trump are making their closing arguments to American voters, crisscrossing the United States in hopes of convincing last-minute undecided voters and rallying their bases to turn out enthusiastically on Election Day

It’s almost bedtime, and just the thought of it kicks off your stress.
There’s an enduring stereotype that women tend to be worse than men when it comes to spatial reasoning. Mentally rotating an object, coming up with strategies to maneuver a big piece of furniture through small corridors , giving directions through a city, navigating, even reading a map ― basically anything that requires visualizing and manipulating 3D objects is thought, by some, not to be women’s strong suit. Research stretching back decades supports this view. And since spatial abilities are important in the STEM fields ― that’s science, technology, engineering and math ― this supposed deficiency is sometimes cited as one of the reasons women are underrepresented in those industries

Easy Listener: Sizzling-Hot Jazz/Cabaret CDs From Barb Jungr, Dane Vannatter, Barbara Fasano, Tony Yazbeck
There was a time not that long ago when cabaret rooms and jazz rooms were considered distinct territories.

The Next Fargo Could Shake the Whole World of Minnesota Nice. Geez, Marge, What in Blazes Is Going On?
Well, don’t this just beat all: The third season of FX’s Fargo may attack the very way of life on which the movie and the hit TV series have been based.

This week in Moscow, a new round of the strategic dialogue will be held under Saudi’s rotating presidency, amid radical differences over Syria as both sides themselves admit. However, the two effective foes in Syria are determined to have cordial relations, each for its own calculations, which could include motives such as Russian-American relations and Gulf-American relations
