    NEW YORK, NY. (THECOUNT) — CNN‘s Anderson Cooper may be expecting a call from his mother today after telling Faye Dunaway, and the world, that his mom, Gloria Vanderbilt, and another woman, “hooked up with” Marlon Brando, once upon a time.
  • 2018, the Year of the Worker

    01/01/2019 9:15:14 AM PST · by Kaslin · 6 replies ^ | January 1, 2019 | Stephen Moore
    If 2017 was the year of the investor -- with stock market gains of more than 25 percent during President Donald Trump's first year in office -- then 2018 was undoubtedly the year of the American worker. These past 12 months have slammed Wall Street hard, with half of 2017's stock blockbuster gains surrendered. But for now, prosperity has rotated to Main Street USA, where things have rarely been better than in 2018. The bears on Wall Street of the last few weeks have dominated the headlines, but those losses have obscured the steady bullish gains for workers. Not in...
  • US military tweets, deletes New Year's Eve message about dropping bombs

    12/31/2018 11:31:02 PM PST · by BenLurkin · 27 replies
    US Strategic Command, the unified military force that controls the launch of nuclear weapons, tweeted an unusual New Year's Eve message on Monday featuring B-2 bombers dropping 30,000-pound conventional weapons at a test range. "#TimesSquare tradition rings in the #NewYear by dropping the big ball...if ever needed, we are #ready to drop something much, much bigger," the tweet from US Strategic Command's official account said. The post, later deleted, included a sizzle reel initially released earlier this year, showing a B-2 bomber dropping "a pair of conventional Massive Ordnance Penetrators (MOP) at a test range," the Pentagon said. A Strategic...

  • 2018: The Year in Preview

    To predict how 2017 played out would be like buying a thousand dollars in Bitcoin the day it was released and holding on to it while remembering your password – in other words, it was very unlikely. Looking forward to 2018 is probably just as crazy an idea as 2017 was a year, but the beauty of writing and punditry is never being held responsible for your failed predictions, so let’s, once again, look into the windshield rather than the rearview mirror. Right off the bat, I’m going big: there will be a vacancy on the Supreme Court. I don’t...

    Happy New Year to you and yours. Here in northern New Hampshire we're in the midst of a big wintry chill - twenty below zero (Fahrenheit), as I write - which may put a bit of frostbite in the first-footing. But, even in balmier locales, we've come to that point on the calendar when film critics advise you to skip New Year's Eve and rent a movie instead. Better yet, rent a New Year movie, for it's a curious fact that almost any picture about December 31st somehow takes on the same depressing, desperate quality as the night itself. The...

    Another year of war, and descriptions of the naval battles in the War of 1812. And a reuse of some of the 1812 New Years verse, as well as the appearance of the unusual, and now famous, Matter-Clatter rhyme from the Christmas poem. There's also an awakened narrator, but this time to work, not to be part of a nightmare. Pray may I ask what was the matter When you all rais'd such noisy clatter,

    The new year will be off to a celestial start with the appearance of a bigger and brighter supermoon — this time nicknamed the “wolf moon.” The supermoon is a nickname of its own, referring to a full moon that appears larger and more luminous due to its increased proximity to the Earth. The wolf moon, however, refers to the first full moon of the new year, which so happens to fall on New Year’s Day this time around, according to NASA. The second of a “supermoon trilogy” that began with a supermoon at this beginning of this month, the...

    A recap of the news of the year which included The War of 1812. This is a far less cheerful recap of a bloody time. We will next take a view of BELLONA'S car, And Madison's new-fangled paper-shot war: -- Next turn your eyes to Queenston heights, And see how brave VAN RENSSELAER fights! Not in the modern mode, by writing, But plain old-fashion'd true blue fighting.
  • Pause, Reflect and Get Ready for the Year to Come

    This is the one time of year we collectively pause, take a breath and get ready for the year to come. It's when we can set next year's tenor, tone and pace. It's up to each of us to make the most of our pause. I love this time of year. Christmas is over and the new year has not yet begun. Families are still together and friends are making plans to catch up while school is still out and many businesses are closed or are operating with smaller staffs. The Christmas decorations are still in place, and the traffic...

    It seems evident that there is a problem, until last couple years it was unknown or at least unreported. There is an apparent disdain within Islam for women. This disdain is not only seen in the way they treat women as property to be bought and sold, or even the sex slave passages in the Quran.The biggest indication of this comes from the fact that Islamic men are prone to rap. This is seen in almost every place that the Islamic asylum seeker goes. Further, it should be pointed out that this holds true for every point of origin.Whether he...

    The record-setting violence Chicago saw in 2016 extended into the New Year -- with 28 people shot in the city on the first day of January alone, according to data from the Chicago Police Department. The first shooting of 2017 happened at 1:05 a.m. Sunday, when two men were taken to the hospital after one man was shot in the chest and the other in the back in a drive-by, according to the Chicago Police Department. Three men were killed in the shootings. Of those shot, five victims were women and three of the victims were minors. [Snip] Chicago saw...

    Now that the dust has settled on the elections, the time has come (or so some of the punditry in the media assure us) to set aside political acrimony and unite under the new leadership of President-elect Donald Trump and the new House and Senate. Although it’s far from clear what President Trump will choose to prioritize, now that he will face the realities of entrenched political interests in Washington instead of his fired-up political base on the hustings, it seems at least possible that he will show much more sympathy for certain constitutionalist and Americanist causes — such as...

    1. Be honest. Know yourself. What is your strongest virtue? What is your worst vice? Therefore, tailor your resolution so it strengthens your good side and fights your bad one. A one-size fits all resolution is useless. 2. Be specific. Don't use generalities. They don't work. For example, if you need to be more humble, just saying "I am going to be more humble," is useless. You need to zero in on one situation where you need to practice humility and resolve to improve in that one situation. 3. Be simple. Don't make it complicated. Focus on something you...

On New Year's Eve, the comet will be visible through a telescope or binoculars near the crescent moon, sporting a blueish-green head and thin, fan-shaped tail, NASA researchers said.

    While you're getting started on your New Year's resolutions, we're knocking one off of our own bucket list: We’ll be kicking off 2017 with our friends at the Modern Language Association (MLA) at their annual convention in Philadelphia. Several thousand English professors will be in the City of Brotherly Love to attend about 800 panels featuring a couple thousand of their peers on topics near to the heart of most academics: Not only do they give a new twist to old favorites of theirs but they also preview the studies and core curricula of college students everywhere. Thus, you can...
