It has been almost a week and I am still not prepared for President Trump. I was sure that Hillary Clinton had it in the bag. I had convinced myself that Donald Trump’s arresting, but toxic, message, his misogyny and rage against the “other”, together with his general lack of discipline, organization or depth would do him in.

Shantel VanSanten has never been accused of shooting the president. But she’s still had to do some fighting to get to where she is today, which is a starring role in USA’s new action drama Shooter , premiering Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET.
I fell in love with a woman, named Dawn, who values diversity as much as I do… I had to marry her. So what a better way to celebrate our union than to have a Big Fat Queer Wedding! When we talked about a theme, there was only one logical answer for both of us, Let Your Freak Flag Fly! We wanted to celebrate in the way we live our life.

By AsiaToday reporter Lee Mi-hyun – Asian Millennials, born between the early 1980s-early 2000s, are eating out more often and more interested in traveling abroad than Western counterparts. In particular, Millennials in emerging markets such as China and India are seeing their average wage increase and their buying power will increase further in the coming years. Let’s look at the spending habits of the Millennials in Asia.
As a single woman dating over 50, what are your thoughts about deal breakers in the men you want to meet? Just to be clear on what a deal breaker actually is…. They are qualities a man has that you CAN’T TOLERATE in your life or they are qualities a man MUST HAVE in order to date you, such as the same religion or culture.

She’s a drug addict and compulsive thief just coming off a prison term. He’s a professional hitman. They meet under sordid and lethal circumstances and quickly go criminal.
You may not be a therapist, but I bet you had the same experience I did the day after the election: everyone, at home, in my lobby, in the street, in the cafe, on my way to work, and of course, in my office, needed to talk.
This is the fifth in a series aimed at educating the public about the serious psychological instability of Donald Trump. Many now are rightly concerned about the potential for blood in the streets that will be triggered by a DT defeat. Despite the shadow of doubt cast by F.B.I
Good news, friends: we’re almost done with the worst of the 2016 political shenanigans. But the fat lady hasn’t sung yet. What do you do when you can’t turn on any form of media without being smacked by slinging mud?
Adding to chorus of overbilled ratepayers urging more accountability at LA DWP, a new LA Times report shows the city’s so-called “ratepayer advocate” wrote himself a five year contract extension into Charter Measure RRR at $280,000 per year, roughly $40,000 more than the Mayor makes, and failed to disclose the self-dealing in the ballot summary he wrote. Fred Pickel, the City’s ratepayer advocate, has been missing in action during the three year old billing scandal that’s rocked the DWP.
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
Like many Americans I was unenthusiastic about having to pick between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. It isn’t that I don’t see Trump as a menace to everything decent about America–he is a menace. But, I can’t be enthusiastic about Clinton
Image: Flag of the separatist Donetsk People’s Republic Three weeks ago a Russian who had led a motley group of Ukrainian separatists and their Russian sympathizers was blown to bits in the elevator of his apartment in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk. Speculation immediately began about who had killed Motorola, a 33-year-old who had bragged about committing the war crime of executing captured Ukrainian army prisoners. Speculation centered on three categories of suspects: Ukraine’s intelligence service, Russia’s intelligence service, and separatist rivals of Motorola, whose real name was Arsen Pavlov.
On November 1st, the Greenpeace Esperanza Facebook page posted this question: “Should we eat meat on board Greenpeace ships? Let us know what you think.” After nearly 1,000 comments, most of them critical of eating meat on board Greenpeace ships, Greenpeace responded with: “Hi everyone! Thanks to all of you who took the time to weigh in on this important question. We are still sifting through all your comments, but we wanted to say thanks for being a part of this conversation
Hillary Clinton is the most qualified candidate running for President. One of the reasons why is her experience with a critical issue that impacts every nation: hunger and malnutrition
How would I — or you — look to the world if subjected to 30 years of relentless, organized and fully-funded lies, calumny, distortions, faux outrage, hypocrisy, fabrications, attempted bullying and flagrant misogyny? Battered? Yes
Electing the country’s first female president is going to be a ground breaking accomplishment. What it will mean for us here in America, and to people around the world, to see a woman serving as Commander-in-Chief will be powerful. Electing Hillary will change the way women are viewed as leaders and pave the way for other women to serve in elected office
Someone should hire Warner Wolf.
Before there was Donald Trump there was Maine Governor Paul LePage. After being elected in 2010 without the majority of votes, LePage promised to tell President Obama to “go to hell” and said the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) can “kiss my butt.” At Maine’s Republican convention in April he denounced a proposed $12 minimum wage by mocking immigrants. “It’s hard to hear what they’re saying,” he said.
Rachel French in Jim Jarmusch’s “Coffee and Cigarettes” Launched under the title Café In, the exhibition marches not only through the history of coffee, first used as a medicine for gout and glumness well into the 18th Century, then includes its role in the art of seduction, the creation of art, its transformation in 19th century France (and later America) as the name for small bistros where people came together to gossip and philosophize, –Jean-Paul Sartre at Café de Flore, Paris its intractable connection to cigarettes, its geography of exploitation north from Ethiopia toward the Arabian peninsula, Constantinople, Venice and eventually to Mexico, the French Caribbean and Brazil, currently the world’s largest coffee producer. –Workers in Ethiopia sorting fresh coffee beans called “cherries” Co-curator Michel Djin, president of the Fondation Malongo, the allied coffee producer that co-produced the show, likes to call coffee and cafés “a marriage not only of commerce but of passion.” That passion, needless to imagine, carries dark chapters in its history, notably under French Carribbean Portuguese Brazilian slavery, without which its place in the lives of urban trendies in Europe and America might never have developed.
The first time I heard about the Movember Foundation was when my sister sent me an article about a group of guys in Australia who were growing lip-lawns for charity. And, when I finished reading it, I had some very mixed emotions
Known for their otherworldly aesthetic and psychedelic visuals, Australian electronic-duo Empire of the Sun is intent on spreading a positive message with their third album Two Vines. There is a lot of distortion in the world, says Luke Steele (one half of the duo, and also frontman for indie rock band The Sleepy Jackson), and he doesn’t want to add to it.
If anyone knows healthy food has a reputation for being bland, it’s Amanda DeJesus. After having a heart transplant at age 15, she had to radically change the way she ate to stave off heart disease
If you’ve heard common student-loan horror stories, you might think that borrowing for school will leave you owing six figures, facing arrest for failure to pay and shackling your family to your debt even if you die. But those are extreme cases. Student loans are a smart career investment as long as you borrow in moderation and graduate.

A common question I get is “How do I get a bank loan to fund my startup?” The default answer is that it probably won’t happen, because most banks just don’t make bank loans to startups. The failure rate is just too high, and startups typically don’t have the assets or revenue stream to back up the loan. That’s why Angel investors are so sought after by entrepreneurs
Apple was as much of a wake up call to today’s design world as Sputnik was, in the last century, to the field of space exploration – no more “business as usual.” Overnight, everyone from corporations and governments to educational institutions and NGOs scrambled to get up to speed with the more design-centric organizations such as Apple, Nike, BMW and IKEA. A favored way to ramp up was to hire consultancies like IDEO, Frog or DesignworksUSA to develop one’s design strategy. Today, a better approach may be to systematically build design and innovation capabilities into the fabric of one’s organizational culture
Well, the spirit of FBI director J Edgar Hoover lives on in the recent actions of current director Comey. For those who are too young to recall, or who have forgotten in the pileup of history since Hoover’s death, J Edgar and his notorious underlings did their best to discredit Rev

One of the most persistent problems facing American higher education is how best to explain its importance and endearing value to the public. The problem is that various perspectives shape the approach utilized. Higher education leadership – especially at the research universities and the liberal arts colleges – often speak to the need for America to produce an educated citizenry.

Democracy must be grounded in human rights. To many, that is obvious, but increasingly, we see some in Europe suggesting that democracy is about merely winning elections and then doing whatever the voters are deemed to want.
“It’s just her turn,” I say.
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
In the pantheon of uncomfortable, taboo and inappropriate conversation subjects, money ranks right at the top. Yet talking about finances with family, potential spouse or a close friend is often essential for one’s stability, long term or short term. In this election year where economic stability has been frequently discussed, the timing of The Talk video seems apt
From Greg Mitchell’s The Tunnels: Escapes Under the Berlin Wall and the Historic Films the JFK White House Tried to Killed , published this week by Crown.

NEW YORK – As you may know, Today anchor and Bush, Billy Bush, appeared in a 2005 recording where Donald Trump boasted of using his celebrity to seduce women. Billy Bush and NBC are finalizing his exit settlement . Twitter is taking the exit settlement news into their own hands by trending #ThanksBilly with hopes the premature thanks will result in Billy Bush donating his $10M settlement to women’s charities

Washington D.C. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Megan Kelly and true Christians are outraged by attacks on Catholics and Evangelicals by Team Hillary
It looks like billions of dollars in wireless data charges are being added to customers’ wireless bills, some causing “overages”; i.e.; when a customer goes over their monthly data usage, known as the ‘data cap’, they can be charged a fee, or have to buy more expensive data or have a slow down of their service, which is called ‘throttling’. Many customers, it appears, purchase additional ‘gigs’ to avoid this. Point of fact, Verizon, et al., have made customer ignorance a new profit center.
I have to begin today with a rather large caveat: nothing in this article deals with what has happened since Friday. Polling always lags reality, meaning that the effect of the Billy Bush/Donald Trump tape and the second debate are not reflected in today’s data one tiny bit
I am astounded by the reasons (more accurately, “raw feelings!”) that people give for not being able to vote for Hillary Clinton. Basically, they boil down to four
