    The disastrous effects of the Trump Era are all too real. Americans are reeling in all sorts of insidious if subtle ways. Exhibit A comes to us from Daniel’s Salon in DC’s posh Dupont Circle. “When you see that much blond hair on the floor, you know something is going on,” says colorist Nicole Butler.

    Cold Arctic air hitches a ride on a 'roller-coaster' jet stream to bring us a more blustering winter than 2014 With cold, blustering snowstorms battering the West Coast and the Prairies, you might be tempted to say "What global warming?" But climate change may, in fact, be to blame for this oh-so-Canadian winter. "Doesn't global warming mean that we're going to get warmer, shorter winters? Well, in some areas, yes, but it actually could mean we could see colder episodes," Environment Canada senior climatologist David Phillips told CBC News.

    Afghan Senate members have certified the existence of documents affirming that Taliban collected endorsements from both Iran and Russia. Indeed, Taliban members are located in the cities of Mashhad, Yazd and Kerman in Iran. They often travel to and fro between the two countries, according to locals at the border of Afghanistan. The Iranian Foreign Ministry denied these reports. A number of deputies of the Council of elders of Afghanistan, advocated that: “Moscow supplied the Taliban with ammunition in order to restrain the widening influence of ISIS and its affiliated groups in Afghanistan and preclude threats against the Central Asian...

    Trump supporters just got an early Christmas gift from Kid Rock, who has released a new line of apparel for the president-elect's biggest fans. The singer, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, has released three new $25 shirts on his official website that feature Trump or reference the election. One shirt simply reads 'Gods, Guns and Trump' while another features a picture of the president-elect with the seemingly misspelled name 'Onald Trump'. Underneath it then reads: 'The D is missing because it's in every hater's mouth'.

    President Barack Obama’s top labor arbiters have overturned a cumulative 4,500 years of legal precedent over the past eight years, according to a new study. The National Labor Relations Board, an agency that oversees union elections and workplace disputes, has issued numerous new rules that changed longstanding agency practices, as well as issued decisions that overturned decades of precedent. In all, the board has overturned 91 precedents, wiping out more than 4,000 years of case law—averaging more than 45 years per decision; the agency’s new election rules overturned a combined 454 years of protocol, according to a study from three...

    In a move that's drawn international headlines, Portland will launch a first-of-its-kind tax on public companies that pay their chief executives vastly more than they pay an average worker. Portland City Council approved the controversial plan 3-1 Wednesday, making a statement about growing income disparity in the United States while giving Commissioner Steve Novick a legacy piece in his final weeks in City Hall. The tax targets publicly traded companies whose chief executives report salaries at least 100 times higher than the salary of a median worker. Officials expect to raise $2.5 million a year starting in January 2017, with...

The animated film turns 50 this year, airing on NBC about three weeks before its actual birthday. And it is, admittedly, a little weird to call a 26-minute cartoon about a green guy who learns not to steal Christmas presents an enduring masterpiece.

    Since his stunning election victory two weeks ago, Donald Trump has been busy making a series of controversial appointments. First came alt-right media baron Steve Bannon as chief strategist and counselor and then Jeff Sessions, who was once denied a federal judgeship due to accusations that he made racially insensitive comments, as attorney general. This week, the president-elect announced his secretary of education will be billionaire philanthropist Betsy DeVos, a school-choice proponent some educators fear could dismantle public education. His most anticipated pick, though, is yet to come. On the campaign trail, Trump repeatedly brought up the U.S. Supreme Court...

    East Side Pies co-owner Noah Polk first heard of the conspiracy theory known as “pizzagate” around the time of the presidential election. The fake news story was started by an online community, fueled by misinterpretations of emails released by WikiLeaks, that claimed associates of Hillary Clinton were behind a child sex-trafficking ring headquartered at the Comet Ping Pong pizza restaurant in Washington, D.C. The fake story turned into a real crime scene on Sunday when a gunman walked into that Washington restaurant and fired a shot.

Oil giants BP and ConocoPhillips are pouring resources into developing similar extraction techniques, which can be far less water- and energy-intensive than fracking. There is more than 4.285 trillion barrels of oil barrels of oil in the Green River Formation (2011 U.S. Geological Survey of resource in-place).

    NBC News paid for a hotel room for the man who ran the Ghost Ship, the Oakland warehouse-turned-artists-collective that burned down Friday night, killing 36 people at an underground electronic music show. Mainstream media outlets frown on paying money to sources. A network spokesman said NBC “absolutely” did not give money to Derick Almena in exchange for a series of exclusive interviews, but bought him a hotel room at the Oakland Marriott City Center for “a couple of nights.” The spokesman described that as “standard TV booking procedure.” Almena, 46, stayed at the hotel with his wife, Micah Allison, and...

    Following President-elect Trump's surprise phone call on Friday with the Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, the response has been predictable if not disheartening. Academics in D.C. this morning are claiming that, “Trump…doesn’t have clue.” An expert at the University of California added that the call was “impulsive.” Regrettably, my Democratic Party pushed back too. By its measure, Trump demonstrated his “incompetence” and threatened our national security. Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) went so far as to say that Trump’s actions might push the nation into war with China. What academics and my party don’t understand is that he’s not interested in starting...

That night in Cincinnati, Trump began a “thank you” tour in front of a jubilant crowd of 15,000 people. Imagine that — any politician, let alone a president-elect, using his first appearance to thank voters instead of privately thanking donors. That’s populism for you. Surprises are routine with Trump, and his speech didn’t disappoint. For nearly 50 manic minutes, he was at turns joyous, boastful and policy specific in...

In the decade since, he has lost his own head a few times, suffering tequila-induced tirades and effectively achieving for himself excommunication from the Church of Hollywood. Such is perhaps for the best, as it provides for him the freedom to make films that rise above the swirling box office toilet bowl of superhero spandex, toy trolls, and incomprehensible Harry Potter spin-offs.

The pizzeria, Comet Ping Pong, had been swept into a conspiracy theory, which linked the supposed ring to Hillary Clinton, because its owner had corresponded with the Clinton campaign about a fund-raising dinner.

    Bathochordaeus charon — an extremely rare species of giant larvacean — has been rediscovered, more than a century after the only previous known specimens of the species were found. Larvaceans are solitary, free-swimming tunicates, animals with a primitive spinal cord but no real backbone. These fragile animals are usually less than 0.4 inches (1 cm) in length, but some giant larvaceans in the deep sea grow up to 3.5 inches (9 cm) long. In 1900, German marine biologist Carl Chun identified the first giant larvacean, Bathochordaeus charon. Scientists from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) were next to document...

    If you’re looking for a healthy snack, nuts might be the answer. A new study from European researchers in the journal BMC Medicine says eating a handful of nuts a day can cut down on several health risks. Data from more than 800,000 people who ate all kinds of nuts, including hazelnuts, walnuts and peanuts, shows they cut their risk of dying from heart disease by nearly 30 percent and cancer by 15 percent. The risk of premature death was also 22 percent lower for people who ate nuts. “It’s quite a substantial effect for such a small amount of...

    Conservatives don’t want to read about Bill de Blasio. This I have learned the hard way. Publish an article about New York’s lefty mayor in a conservative outlet and the reader reaction will be as predictable as a Mets loss on opening day. “Why should I care about this?” goes the typical comment. “New Yorkers voted for this crazy guy. Let them suffer the consequences.” Fair. And true enough. If you live in the Midwest or Texas or Florida — or anywhere, really, outside the self-obsessed media market of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut — the constant barrage of...
