All the President's MiceFor quality trash talk, bury yourself in an eye-gouging, loose-ball NFL pileup. Those who don’t play pro football? The next best alternative would be eavesdropping on the not-for-attribution quotations White House sources have been dishing to the press about other White House sources over the first 100 days of Baby Donald’s presidency.

If this were theater, it would be the Grand Guignol. If it were a movie, it would be The Shining with blood bursting through White House elevator doors. If it were a 911 call, it would be the report of a murder.


Study: Half of U.S. doctors paid by drug, device industries

Half od US doctors paid by drug and device companiesAbout half of U.S. doctors received payments from the pharmaceutical and medical device industries in 2015, amounting to $2.4 billion, a new study reports.

Those payments and gifts very likely encourage doctors to prescribe pricey brand-name drugs and devices pushed by sales representatives, a second study argues.

Doctors at academic medical centers were more likely to prescribe cheaper generic drugs than expensive brand-name drugs after their hospitals adopted rules that restricted pharmaceutical sales visits, the researchers said.

A report from the office of Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats presented the first measure of the effects of the 2015 USA Freedom Act, which limited the NSA to collecting phone records and contacts of people that the US and allied intelligence agencies suspect may have ties to "terrorism".


At Ivanka’s Company, There Were Women Who Worked … Without Maternity Leave

Ivanka Trump had no maternity leave for her workersvanka Trump has created a lifestyle brand — and now a book — premised on women’s empowerment. But her company did not have a maternity leave policy until her female workers pushed her to adopt one.

When Trump’s “Women Who Work” initiative launched in 2013, “They [had] no maternity policy in place, they [didn’t] have health benefits in place,” Rachel Abrams, the co-author of a New York Times profile of Trump, told the paper’s podcast, The Daily.

The bananas were found at a shuttle bus stop, a dining hall and near an undergraduate residence hall.


Historians see a dark underside to Trump's Civil War riff

Historians see dark underside of Trump Civil War riffPresident Donald Trump on Monday once again defied the history books, this time claiming that Andrew Jackson was “really angry” about the Civil War – despite having died 16 years before the first shots were fired – and puzzled why a deal wasn’t cut to avoid the war altogether.

“He was really angry that he saw with regard to the Civil War, he said, ‘There’s no reason for this,’” Trump said in a radio interview with conservative writer Salena Zito broadcast Monday.

“The Civil War, if you think about it, why? People don’t ask the question but why was there the Civil War? Why could that one not have been worked out?” Trump added.
