    The videos of Simone achieving the pass have millions of views already, but my personal favorites are the slow-mo versions, which are extremely necessary given Simone's speed. Please enjoy this slow-mo clip of Simone making history While competing in Kansas City yesterday, Simone landed a triple-twisting double flip during her floor routine. For those of us who are nodding along without knowing what that actually is (i.e. ME), all you really need to know is that pass consists of three twists and two flips, and it's nearly impossible to do.

    The Swiss had/have some genius mechanical engineers and craftsmen. Swiss-made watches are still among the best today. A 240-year-old doll; you have never seen anything like this before. Truly Amazing... Watch the doll's eyes as he writes with a pen on the paper. Yes, it is 240 years old. This video will fascinate just about all the engineers, artists, clockmakers, doll makers, computer programmers, want-to-be inventors, or basically anyone out there that likes to tinker. This is far more than tinkering. When you view this, think computers. Enjoy. It is truly amazing and remember, this was built in the 1770s.
  • Public School Teachers Denounced For Dressing Up As Mexicans, Trump’s Wall For Halloween

    Schoolteachers in Idaho are in trouble after dressing in politically charged costumes for Halloween. Photos surfaced on Facebook of staff at an elementary school in Middleton, Idaho, dressing as Mexicans and President Trump’s proposed border wall along with the saying, “Make America Great Again,” and waving American flags. Parents flagged the post as being potentially insensitive to some of the students and the local DACA group reported the photos saying they were “extremely disheartening.”

    “We will not cooperate, engage, fund, or assist the ICC in any way. This president will not allow American citizens to be prosecuted by foreign bureaucrats, and he will not allow other nations to dictate our means of self-defense U.S. national security advisor John Bolton condemned the International Criminal Court (ICC) “as a free-wheeling global organization claiming jurisdiction over individuals without their consent.” He announced in a major speech to the Federalist Society earlier this week that the Trump administration would consider strong steps to protect the American people if the ICC oversteps its bounds, such as imposing sanctions on...
  • Trump blocks pay raise for 1.5 million federal workers, calls for no increase next year

    President Trump on Thursday blocked an automatic pay raise for 1.5 million federal workers, and asked Congress to pass legislation with no increase next year for employees covered by the General Schedule pay system. “Federal agency budgets cannot sustain such increases,” Trump wrote in a Thursday letter to congressional leaders, a formality that blocks an automatic 2.1 percent raise from taking effect in January under the Federal Employees Pay Comparability Act. "I have determined that for 2019, both across‑the‑board pay increases and locality pay increases will be set at zero," Trump wrote.

    Failed political consultant Liz Mair is crowd funding a political attack on billionaire presidential candidate Donald Trump and she’s getting noticed. But Mair’s past work as a paid shill of a Muslim dictatorship that jails journalists and activists should make us wonder about her motives, especially as the Middle East once more descends into chaos. Mair was paid $15,000 a month by Ilham Aliyev, the dictator of Azerbaijan, according to documents filed in accordance with the Foreign Registration Act (FARA).

    PHOENIX - The Confederate monument that stands at Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza, just outside the Arizona state Capitol, looked a little different than it usually does Tuesday evening. In addition to its memorializing of Arizona Confederate soldiers and its erectors, the United Daughters of the Confederacy, the statue got a few new decorations. At the top, a ribbon hung with the words, "You lost, get over it," and at the bottom, the monuments message "A nation that forgets its past has no future" had been covered with a "2nd Place," "Participant" banner.

    Almost two-thirds of federal employees voted for Hillary Clinton during the presidential election, according to a new survey.The poll also found that six of 10 felt that the election itself gave Americans a negative impression of federal service.So it may come as no surprise that some federal employees are considering leaving their employment when President-elect Donald Trump assumes office. “More than one in four federal workers, or 28 percent, will definitely or possibly consider leaving their jobs after Jan. 20 when Trump is sworn into office and becomes leader of the executive branch,” according to the survey conducted by the...

So if the old bag wins, I won't be to blame."He previously said he was voting for Johnson, because he couldn't stomach Trump. We're in heavily pro-Trump Southern Ohio, judging by yard signs.Just thought I'd share.

If you've been through a traumatic experience, you've got something that others don't, you've experienced something most people around you have not, you can count yourself lucky. Because when faced with a similar situation again, you will know how to react, you're prepared, whilst the others around you panic and or break down, you can Steele yourself and calmly deal with that situation. It's not a pity ticket, it's a badge of pride! Don't look for sympathy, count yourself lucky to have lived through the hard times, wear...

    During Miranda Lambert’s concert in Hartford, Connecticut on Friday, August 19th, she was performing “The House That Built Me,’ when she noticed a sign in the crowd. “3 combat tours … [Your] voice was the last thing I listened to EVERY NIGHT! THANK YOU!!!” In the video, you can see the moment Miranda reads the sign, before asking, ‘Really?’ and then holds up the sign onstage for the crowd and her band to read. The sign moved her to tears, and, the moment moved me to tears too. Could you imagine what an honor it is to have a military...

    I'm not sure where John Kasich spent the last several decades of his life, but I'm betting it wasn't in America. On a campaign stop in Virginia this morning, Kasich took advantage of the events 'townhall' format to wax poetic about the uptick in support for his fourth place Presidential campaign. According to the Ohio governor, the turnout to volunteer for him has been nothing short of astounding. Why, the women-folk have even dropped their dirty dishes, put down their pasta pots and have left their kitchens for the first time since dedicating themselves to a life of housewifery to...
