Trump Casinos Got $25M Tax Break Under Christie

Trump Casinos got $25m tax breakGov. Chris Christie’s New Jersey tax collectors let Donald Trump off the hook for almost $25 million in back taxes, according to The New York Times. In 2010, New Jersey auditors had been working for years to collect overdue taxes—totaling nearly $30 million—owed by Trump’s casinos in the state.

New Jersey had  pursued the issue aggressively for nearly six years, including at one point accusing the company of filing false reports with its casino regulators. But then, the Times reports, Christie took office, and the state agreed instead to accept just $5 million to settle the matter.

"Nobody before this has ever statistically determined that a single stone circle was constructed with astronomical phenomena in mind -- it was all supposition," Gail Higginbottom, visiting research fellow at Adelaide and leader of the recent research effort, said in a news release.

State Department to release all of Clinton’s deleted emails

State Dept. to release emailsThe State Department will release all of the work-related emails that the FBI recovered from Hillary Clinton’s private system, the department confirmed in a recent court filing, eliminating the possibility that the messages will remain secret.

However, it remains unsettled whether the full set of emails will be out before the presidential election on Nov. 8.

The thousands of messages will be released to Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group that has filed numerous legal complaints over the former secretary of State’s email setup while in office, the department said. Judicial Watch, which routinely releases documents it obtains via open-records lawsuits, is expected to make the emails public.


Simone Biles, Aly Raisman win gold and silver in floor final

Simone Biles and Aly RaismanSimone Biles finished her Rio Olympics with a fifth Olympic medal, fourth gold. Putting yesterday's mistake on the balance beam behind her, Biles added to her three consecutive world titles on floor with an Olympic gold.

In today's floor exercise final, Biles was better than her best. On her tumbling passes, always high-flying, she got so much air that she seemed in danger of smacking her head on the rafters. She had no problem staying in control when it was time to come back down to earth, and her dance work to Brazilian-themed music, including a piece from the animated movie "Rio,"got the crowd roaring.

With a score of 15.966, Biles was untouchable. As usual.
