  • Anti-Trump messages flash on hacked traffic sign along Lemmon Avenue (Dallas)

    Facebook filled up late Friday and early Saturday with videos of a hacked street sign along eastbound Lemmon Avenue near northbound North Central Expressway with less than kind words for President Donald Trump — or, to be more specific, "Turmp" — and his supporters. Most of the sign's content doesn't pass muster in a family newspaper — or a fourth-grade writing assignment.

    People forgot the asterisk. Or maybe they never noticed it in the first place. The consequences of that oversight took full form about a week ago, and the result is that the prospects for several major highway projects in Central Texas and the state’s other urban centers are now uncertain. Back during the 2013 legislative session, when Texas Department of Transportation officials and their lawmaker allies began pushing for more money through a constitutional amendment, they said that TxDOT needed an extra $5 billion a year to fight traffic congestion. Just give us that much money and all will be...

    Mention “tech cities,” and what might comes to mind are Silicon Valley, Chicago, Seattle, New York City, or Austin. But, Dallas-Fort Worth is emerging as a tech market, according to two new reports. “People have thought of Austin as Silicon Prairie for a long time,” said Ali Greenwood, vice president of data center solutions with commercial real estate firm JLL. This is logical, given that Dell, Apple, and Oracle have a presence there as do many technology startups. However, Greenwood said the sheer volume of Fortune 500 companies in DFW has attracted tech and other companies from elsewhere. Because of...

    Nearly 48 years after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, fresh audio evidence from that fateful day has surfaced. The evidence comes in the form of the original reel-to-reel Air Force One radio recording, containing conversations between officials on the plane, the White House situation room, and others. The original tape was long thought to be lost or destroyed. The tape contains never-before-heard conversations between the presidential aircraft and the White House and immediately after the assassination of President Kennedy on Nov. 22, 1963. It was held privately for years by President Kennedy’s military aide at the time, Chester...
  • Jerry Jones could be forced to sell Cowboys as angry NFL owners protect Roger Goodell

    This might not be how it was supposed to go. After a tumultuous year of protests, sinking ratings and ticket sales for the NFL, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was prepared to act. Last week, news that Jones had threatened to sue NFL commission Roger Goodell rocked the political and sports world. Jones had been extremely critical over many of Goodell’s decisions, and was vocal over this mishandling of the players’ protests during the national anthem. Jones decided to put his money where his mouth is, and hired an attorney in an attempt to stop negotiations for Goodell’s lucrative contract...

  • Cowboys deny release of Damontre Moore was related to his anthem protests (wink wink)

    Damontre Moore was in his first season with the Cowboys Cowboys place-kicker Dan Bailey injured his groin Sunday, and to make room for a temporary replacement, Dallas needed to release a player. Their decision to cut Damontre Moore, Coach Jason Garrett said Wednesday, had nothing to do with the defensive end’s protests during the national anthem. Moore and defensive tackle David Irving have been the only Dallas players to protest. Neither knelt or sat, but both had staged brief demonstrations while standing as pregame renditions of “The Star-Spangled Banner” ended. The timing appeared to be an effort to skirt an...

    The Soviet Union theorized that President Lyndon B. Johnson could have been behind JFK’s assassination — and also feared Moscow could be blamed and attacked, according to documents in a major release of files related to Kennedy’s slaying on Thursday. The Dec. 1, 1966, FBI memo, which relayed unconfirmed speculation, noted that sources said the KGB “was in possession of data purporting to indicate President Johnson was responsible for the assassination of the late President John F. Kennedy.” The memo, which was forwarded to the White House by FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover with the all-caps title “REACTION OF SOVIET...

    From American Real Estate Investments: Business Insider ranked Dallas as the best place to buy a rental property. In cooperation with HomeUnion, Business Insider examined everything from the projected positive cash flow to the local economies to a detailed analysis of the local real estate market. The conclusion? Dallas is number one. Investing in a rental property is distinctly different than owning a home or doing a fix and flip. Rental properties are a long-term investment. They need specific market conditions that minimize the risk of vacancy and maximize cash flow and appreciation. Business Insider and HomeUnion found that the...

    The Guardian ^ | Oct 22, 2017
    Dallas owner says he has heard from concerned sponsors The Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who this month said he would bench any of his players who “disrespect the flag” during the national anthem, says that the protest movement is damaging the NFL. This season dozens of NFL players have knelt during the anthem to highlight racial injustice in the United States. The movement has split the nation, with many perceiving it as disrespectful to military veterans. The NFL’s television ratings are also down, although it is not clear whether this is directly linked to the protests, as TV...

    CEO-turned-mayor attracts investors with low tax rates The Moon Jae-in administration's recent minimum wage hike and its plan to raise corporate and income tax rates are weighing heavily on companies doing business in Korea. The city of Dallas, Texas, which holds the top spot among U.S. cities in terms of job creation, is a good example that shows the reason why policymakers should reconsider such plans. It has attracted international companies to invest in the city, offering a business-friendly environment with low tax rates and labor costs. "I'm a believer that low tax rates enable businesses and jobs. That's one...

    At the Gun Rights Policy Conference (GRPC) in Dallas, Texas, I noticed a significant amount of the open carry of sidearms. This would not have been legal as late as December of 2015. The open carry of a Bowie knife would have been illegal up until then end of August this year!In addition to the licensed open carry of handguns, edged weapons with blades of more than 5.5 inches can now be legally carried in most places. One participant carried an iconic Bowie knife at the GRPC. He graciously allowed me to take a picture. Knife Rights deserves much...

    Jerry Jones is now center stage, but not for a reason he'd like to be. The Hall of Famer owner took ownership of nearly every major headline in the 24-hour news feed when he took a powerful stance regarding how the Dallas Cowboys will handle the National Anthem. Through the team's Week 5 game against the Green Bay Packers, no Cowboys' player had offered any type of demonstration during the signing of the Anthem -- remaining one of the few teams with that designation. Jones' comments were unexpected, considering the aforementioned combined with the discussions that took place after comments...
  • Cowboys TV ratings in Dallas-Fort Worth are slipping

    Any television show or any sporting event would take a rating of 30.0 in the Dallas-Fort Worth market and laugh all the way to the bank. It's a terrific number. It means that an average of 30 percent of all homes with televisions in the area were tuned in at any moment. That translates to approximately 794,550 homes. Relatively speaking, however, those are low numbers for a Green Bay Packers-Dallas Cowboys matchup. But that's what Sunday's down-to-the-wire Packers 35, Cowboys 31 at AT&T Stadium scored locally for Fox on KDFW (Channel 4).
