  • Weekend Reading: Renter Nation

    Authored by Lance Roberts via, “The psychological factors are harder to assess. People aren’t flipping condos for sport the way they were during the bubble when mortgages were available to anyone regardless of whether they had income or assets. Yet it seems there’s a widespread desire to own assets – stocks, bonds, and real estate – regardless of price. It’s not an obviously happy mania, where people are motivated by promises of great wealth. It’s more like a need to...

    With empathy, integrity and determination, the manager who missed a penalty at Euro 96 is giving England its chance of glory Pick a moment. There have been so many from which to choose in this unexpectedly joyous World Cup. Harry Kane’s stoppage-time winner against Tunisia. Jordan Pickford’s penalty save against Colombia.

  • Best National Banks, 2018

    Large banks have the resources to serve up a variety of deposit accounts and loans, as well as financial planning, investing and wealth-management services.

Here's a look at our top picks for national banks. SEE ALSO: See Our Complete Guide to...
  • The nationalism America needs now

    This has been the year of the national anthem. Never before have so many Americans been so passionately interested in the details of its performance. Lengthy debates were held over whether the third verse of “The Star-Spangled Banner” was racist, most of them conducted by people who had not previously been aware that “The Star-Spangled...

  • The Big National Injunction Case

    The national injunction is moving from a simmer to a boil. Here are the major developments: Today, in Trump v. Hawaii, the majority did not reach the scope of the injunction. In a concurring opinion, however, Justice Thomas launched a ten-page critique of the "universal injunctions" being given by federal courts. He emphasized not the policy weakness of these injunctions, but their lack of legitimacy--their relative novelty, their inconsistency with a claimant-focused view of the judicial...

  • National Center for Missing & Exploited Children

    When Adam Walsh first disappeared in 1981, his parents, John and Revé Walsh, turned to law enforcement to help find their son. To their disbelief, there was no coordinated effort among law enforcement to search for the 6-year-old on a state or national level and no organization to help the family in their desperation. In January 1984, the Walshes and other child advocates incorporated the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the District of Columbia as a nonprofit 501(c)(3)...

  • 'Murica: The "Rule-Of-Law-Optional" Nation

    Authored by James Howard Kunstler via, So, former FBI lawyer Lisa Page declined to testify before a congressional committee because she didn’t feel like it. Apparently we’re now a rule-of-law-optional nation. Until recently, we were merely reality-optional. That was fun, but when officers of the country’s leading law enforcement agency go optional on standard legal procedure, like answering subpoenas, then we’re truly in the land where anything goes (and nothing matters). After...

So you might get this gorgeous 1961 panorama of London, with individual hand-painted buildings… … or you might get this 1894 sketch of Antarctica. Which is not uninteresting, but it’s interesting for different reasons. As a longtime advocate...
