    Woods’ SUV was traveling between 84 and 87 mph — nearly twice the posted speed limit — when it struck a raised median, Villanueva said. The vehicle was still traveling at about 75 mph as it then careened into a nearby tree in the area of Hawthorne Boulevard and Blackhorse Road. Sheriff’s Capt. James Powers said there was no evidence that the golfer braked throughout the wreck and that it’s believed Woods inadvertently hit the accelerator instead of the brake pedal.

    At our current rate of spending, the U.S. will be unable to confront major problems in the future because we’ve already stretched ourselves too thin.America’s debt and deficits usually are spoken of in terms of economics, but they have huge implications for national security. To see why, start with the economics angle. Famed investor Michael Burry — who foresaw the housing market bust and was played by Christian Bale in the hit film “The Big Short” — has just issued a warning. In a series of tweets, Burry said that the stock market could crash because of too much debt....

    Harry S. Dent Jr., the “Contrarian’s Contrarian,” who for years was predicting a cataclysmic market crash late 2017 to early 2020, isn’t gloating. But clearly his mode is I-told-you-so. Recently, he’d warned that the worrisome debt and financial assets bubble would blow in March. Then came “the perfect trigger”: coronavirus, which proved his forecast correct and threw America into “an instant depression,” he argues in an interview with ThinkAdvisor. The U.S. is going through “detox for a crack-addicted economy,” Dent insists, citing a bubble that’s been building to an “orgasmic phase” for some time.
