  • Trump is all about school safety this week, but last week his budget slashed school safety funds

    Last Wednesday a school shooting in Parkland, Florida, left 17 dead, so this Thursday, Donald Trump will have a meeting on school safety. But let’s flash back to last Monday, when Trump released his budget, about which Politico reported, in the wake of the shooting, that it dramatically cuts school safety funding. The budget request calls for a $25 million reduction in funds designated for national school safety activities, compared with 2017. President Donald Trump's budget would eliminate...

  • Premier League Table: 2018 Standings, Week 27 Fixtures After Week 26 Results

    Premier League champions Chelsea fell to pieces at Vicarage Road on Monday and suffered a 4-1 defeat at Watford's hands, failing to capitalise upon Liverpool's draw at Tottenham Hotspur as Week 26 came to a climactic close. Tiemoue Bakayoko was sent off after 30 minutes, and Eden Hazard thought he secured a point for the Blues when he cancelled out Troy Deeney's first-half penalty breakthrough with an 82nd-minute equaliser. But the Hornets had other plans and scored three in the last 10 minutes...

  • Premier League Table: 2018 Standings, Week 25 Fixtures After Week 24 Results

    Liverpool's ecstasy from beating Premier League leaders Manchester City was short-lived as manager Jurgen Klopp's side suffered a 1-0 defeat at bottom side Swansea City on Monday evening. Alfie Mawson capitalised on record signing Virgil van Dijk's miscued clearance to sweep home the breakthrough in the first half, and the Reds never found their foothold to level at the Liberty Stadium. Swansea's victory isn't enough to take them off the bottom of the table, although Carlos Carvalhal's third win...

  • What are you listening to this week?

    I accidentally destroyed my phone during a run yesterday, so I called my old iPod up from the reserves. It’s a modified 300-gig monster that I still update, even though I rarely use it. Scrolling takes forever, so I stopped in the Ds for De La Soul’s classic 3 Feet High And Rising. It’s been a minute since I’ve heard it, and I was left wondering why I don’t listen to “The Magic Number” on a loop all day. I prefer higher BPMs in my hip-hop, and a brisk boom-bap beat anchors the song along with a...

  • It's Infrastructure Week ... again

    A big, beautiful infrastructure plan was one of those “day one” things that Donald Trump promised during the campaign. But a plan requires planning, and Trump didn’t actually do any of that as part of his brand-building by running for president scheme. Then back in June, Donald Trump declared an “Infrastructure Week,” but since that week coincided with the testimony of James Comey before the Senate, a barrage of Twitter attacks by Trump that covered everyone from Comey to the Mayor of London,...
