    President-elect Donald Trump has tapped David Shulkin to head the Department of Veterans Affairs, he announced Wednesday. "I appointed today the head secretary of the Veterans Administration, David Shulkin," Trump said during his news conference at Trump Tower in New York. "We'll do a news release in a little while, I'll tell you about David, he's fantastic. He's fantastic. He will do a truly great job. One of the commitments I've made is that we're going to straighten out the whole situation for our veterans." Shulkin is the VA's current undersecretary for health, a position in which he oversaw more...

    Trump's USA may cooperate with Russia like never before, significantly altering global power equations. The invocation of the "foreign hand" to explain unexpected political developments is quite common in the [Indian] subcontinent. But the last place in the world to have a debate on the "foreign hand" is the United States. Usually, it is Washington that is accused of meddling in the internal affairs of other nations -- from promoting military coups to propping up friendly regimes and engineering regime changes. But right now, it is America that is debating the nature and extent of the Russian President Vladimir Putin's...

    During President-elect Donald Trump’s press conference today, Trump took aim at “fake news” regarding the release of an unverified dossier by Buzzfeed, calling them a “failing piece of garbage.” Following that, he ended up getting into an argument with a CNN reporter, who he also called out during the presser over their report on a two-page synopsis they claim was presented to Trump. With Trump looking to call on other reporters, Jim Acosta yelled out, “Since you are attacking us, can you give us a question?” “Not you,” Trump said. “Your organization is terrible!”

Kennedy Jr. revealed his new role after a meeting at Trump Tower on Tuesday. He said Trump had asked him to head a commission on 'vaccine safety and scientific integrity' and that he had agreed to do so. Both Trump and Kennedy have have raised suspicions about vaccines despite their overwhelming support among scientists and physicians as a way to prevent the spread of deadly diseases that can infect infants and other children when the...

  • Psychiatrists Can’t Predict Mass Shootings — Meanwhile, Let the Public Defend Itself

    Pouring money into mental-health care won’t stop mass public shootings. Unfortunately, psychiatry is far from a perfect science. There has already been a lot of second-guessing about Esteban Santiago-Ruiz, who killed five people and wounded eight at the Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood International Airport on Friday. Despite extensive psychological evaluations, many psychiatrists had failed to identify Santiago as a danger to others. One of Santiago’s brothers blames the government. In November 2016, local police escorted Santiago to a psychiatric hospital. Relatives say that after being released, he received further psychological treatment at his home in Alaska. Shouldn’t the experts have picked up...

    Macs tend to fare second best in Consumer Reports testing, partly because the magazine lives in ignorance of the differences between Apple’s computers and Windows boxes. But they’ve always been recommended, until recently. I can quibble about the way the tests appear to emphasize features over performance, usability and reliability. In fact, I have. But it took a poor rating by CR to trigger a dialogue that revealed a serious flaw in their testing. The tests also triggered an obscure bug in Safari for macOS Sierra that might otherwise have remained undiscovered and unfixed. It all started when CR reported...

  • Cubs choose to visit White House in President Obama's final days in office

    The Chicago Cubs will be the final pro sports team to celebrate a championship with President Obama at the White House before he leaves office. It turns out, the Cubs have reportedly decided to take Obama up on his offer to visit before Donald Trump is sworn in as our 45th president. They’ll visit Monday, four days before the inauguration. After the Cubs won the World Series in November, Obama — a White Sox fan from the Southside of Chicago — invited the Cubs to take part in the traditional presidential celebration earlier than normal. Usually, these visits happen during...

    Business Insider ^ | 01/11/2017 | Paul Szoldra
    President Barack Obama is seriously considering a pardon for former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning, according to a new report from NBC News. Manning was convicted of violations of the Espionage Act and other charges in July 2013 after he stole nearly a million secret documents while working as an intelligence analyst, later giving them to WikiLeaks. The files detailed operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and revealed secret diplomatic cables, some of which were highly embarrassing to the US. A Justice Department source told NBC News that Manning was on the president's "short list" for commutations. The 29-year-old is currently...

    The Constitution works because it is founded on the beauty of the solid moral and spiritual rock of the Declaration of Independence. By Jerry Todd 12/18/2011 On September 17, 2010 President Barack Obama spoke to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute 33rd Annual Award Gala. During his speech - reading from a teleprompter - he quoted from the Declaration of Independence. Here is what he said: "We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, endowed with certain unalienable rights, life and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." Perhaps his teleprompter muddles the defining phrase “endowed...
