Tennessee school bus crash: Mother of driver urges compassion

Moments after the catastrophic crash Monday, Walker called his mother and told her what happened.
" 'Mama, I love you. I have been in a drastic accident,' " Gwenevere Cook recalled her son saying. "He texted me minutes later saying the kids are dead. "
Five children died and at least 12 were hospitalized after the bus plowed into a tree and flipped over in the Tennessee city.
"He was trying to get (the children) off the bus -- all the bodies were limp," Cook said. "There was blood everywhere. "
Walker, 24, now faces five counts of vehicular homicide, reckless endangerment and reckless driving.
"Based on witness statements and physical evidence, the defendant was driving the school bus at a high rate of speed, well above the posted speed limit of 30 mph," his arrest warrant affidavit says.
"Mr. Walker lost control of the bus and swerved off of the roadway to the right, striking an elevated driveway and mailbox, swerved to the left and began to overturn, striking a telephone pole and a tree. "
One child on board told CNN affiliate WDEF-TV the driver "was going real fast" and hit a garbage bag.
"And we then hit a mailbox, then we flipped over and hit a tree real hard," the boy said.
Cook said her son is a responsible man and the father of a 3-year-old son.
"He is a marvelous son. For two years he worked two jobs. He's never been in trouble before," his mother said. "He is a respected young man, grew up in Chattanooga and is liked by everyone. "
Cook said she's grieving for the families of the children killed -- but said her son is also suffering.
"My heart of love is going out for all that was in harm's way of God's will," she said. "Sending out mine and our condolences to every family that God touched yesterday in this horrible accident. And I am asking for compassion also for my son. "

Donald Trump's Foundation Admits to Violating 'Self-Dealing' Rule

The charitable foundation of President-elect Donald Trump admitted in recent tax filings that it violated a rule prohibiting nonprofit leaders from using charitable funds to benefit themselves, their businesses or their families.
Trump faced scrutiny during his campaign over reports that he had used more than $250,000 from the Donald J. Trump Foundation to settle lawsuits involving his for-profit businesses—a practice known as “self dealing.”
In tax filings for 2015, which were published on the GuideStar website Monday, the Trump Foundation checked “yes” when asked if it had transferred “income or assets to a disqualified person,” the Washington Post reported. IRS definitions of a “ disqualified person ” include the foundation manager, a substantial contributor to the foundation or their family members.
The Trump Foundation also checked “yes” when asked it had previously engaged in self-dealing.
Consequences for such violations can include excise taxes or repayment of funds used for self-dealing. It appears that the Trump Foundation had not previously admitted to self-dealing violations in other filings, and it’s not yet clear if Trump has already paid any penalties, according to the Post.

What Does Trump Think About Climate Change? He Doesn’t Know Either

What does the president-elect think about climate change?
Who even knows anymore?
Speaking at the offices of The New York Times on Tuesday, Donald J. Trump appeared to vacillate on, and sometimes even disagree with, previous statements about climate change made by Donald J. Trump. He even seemed ready to grant that climate change exists.
“I think there is some connectivity” between humans and the changing climate, he told the Times reporters and editors, according to Maggie Haberman .
Does Trump think human activity is linked to climate change? “I think there is some connectivity. Some, something. It depends on how much. "
"Clean air is vitally important," Trump says about climate change. Says he is keeping "an open mind. "
Clean air is not quite the issue with climate change— unlike airborne lead or particulate matter , carbon dioxide only threatens human health when it escapes into the atmosphere and screws up planetary weather patterns—but even the willingness to accept global warming’s existence would be a revision of Trump’s views.
He also told Tom Friedman, the Times columnist, that he was keeping “an open mind” about the Paris Agreement, the first international treaty to combat climate change.
Tom Friedman asks if Trump will withdraw from climate change accords. Trump: “I’m looking at it very closely. I have an open mind to it. "
On climate change, Trump says he is also thinking about "how much it will cost our companies” & the effect on American competitiveness.
Maybe he’s just been reading the news. More than 70 percent of Americans , and a majority of Republicans, want the United States to remain in the Paris Agreement, according to a poll from the University of Chicago. Hundreds of U. S. companies have also asked the Trump administration to stay in the treaty. They aren’t just liberal-aligned firms, either: Many of them, including Kellogg and General Mills, have given tens of thousands to Republicans in the recent past.
Even the Fox News host Bill O’Reilly is coming around to the agreement. “‘President-elect Trump should accept the Paris treaty on climate to buy some goodwill overseas,” he said on-air last week . “It doesn't really amount to much anyway, let it go.”
But if Trump opted to let the United States stay in the Paris Agreement, it would represent a major shift of his views from the campaign. “We’re going to cancel the Paris climate agreement,” he told a crowd in North Dakota in May. He frequently repeated that promise. Later, he said the agreement “gives foreign bureaucrats control over how much energy we use right here in America.” ( It doesn’t .)
Trump’s views on climate change are famously more shaky. During the first presidential debate, he claimed that he had never said climate change was a hoax invented by the Chinese to depress American manufacturing. This was a tricky claim to make—since he had tweeted exactly that statement in 2012.
The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U. S. manufacturing non-competitive.
It became the most retweeted tweet of the night. He later said it was a joke, but he has many other on-the-record statements (and tweets) doubting the existence of climate change. The statement continues to circulate, too: Last week, the Chinese vice minister of foreign affairs assured Trump that his country really had not made up the idea of climate change.
Yet four years prior to that tweet, in December 2009, Trump and his adult three children signed an open letter in The New York Times calling on President Obama and the then-Democratic-controlled Congress to “strengthen and pass United States legislation” and “ensure meaningful and effective measures” worldwide to fight climate change.
“If we fail to act now, it is scientifically irrefutable that there will be catastrophic and irreversible consequences for humanity and our planet,” said the letter.
Climate change: “Scientifically irrefutable” or a malignant foreign hoax? We basically have no idea what Trump thinks about climate change. These new views aren’t necessarily any more binding or authentic than claims he made last month, or last spring, or last decade. What’s clear instead is that Trump changes his tune depending on his audience. Maybe he figured that the Times sophisticates would want to hear him cogitate deeply on climate change, while rally goers in fracking-dependent North Dakota would yearn for angry denialism.
And the actual plans of his transition team don’t reflect a newfound climate moderation, either. Trump’s team chose Myron Ebell to lead the Environmental Protection Agency transition. Ebell, who has professionally rejected the existence of climate change since the mid-1990s, is one of the architects of Republican climate-change denial. It who Ebell who helped push the EPA not to regulate climate change during George W. Bush’s presidency. Last year, he called Pope Francis’s encyclical on climate change “scientifically ill informed, economically illiterate, intellectually incoherent and morally obtuse.”
Ebell is, needless to say, quite an appointment to make during the hottest year ever recorded. If Trump keeps him on the team, there should be little question about the direction of his environmental policy—even if the president comes around to admitting that climate change exists.
Still, consider how a certain type of old-school Republican might be feeling about the incoming administration. It seems eminently plausible that in his first year in office, President Trump could permanently commit the United States to the Paris Agreement on climate change—and also fatally destabilize NATO. The planet really is changing.

Dow surpasses 19,000 as a record-setting drive continues ::

By Marley Jay, AP Markets Writer
NEW YORK (AP) - The Dow Jones industrial average surpassed 19,000 for the first time Tuesday as a post-election rally drove indexes further into record territory. Discount store chains made large gains, but health care companies tumbled.
Stocks opened solidly higher after setting records on Monday. They gave up some of their gains around midday but reached new highs late in the afternoon. Health care stocks slumped after weak results from medical device company Medtronic. Retailers soared after strong earnings from Dollar Tree and Burlington Stores.
"The consumer in general is far more budget-conscious than they were in previous generations," Ken Perkins, president of research firm Retail Metrics, said of discount chains.
The Dow picked up 67.18 points, or 0.4 percent, to 19,023.87. The Standard & Poor's 500 index added 4.76 points, or 0.2 percent, to 2,202.94. The Nasdaq composite gained 17.49 points, or 0.3 percent, to 5,386.35.
The Russell 2000 index, which tracks smaller companies, continued to set records as it traded higher for the 13th day in a row. It jumped 0.9 percent.
The Dow has closed at a record high six times in the two weeks since the presidential election, but trading volume has fallen in recent days. U. S. trading will be closed Thursday for Thanksgiving and markets will close early on Friday.
Shoppers continued to flock to discount stores. Dollar Tree raised its profit and sales forecasts after the chain reported solid results in the third quarter. Burlington Stores also raised its outlook after it posted a larger profit than analysts expected. Dollar Tree jumped $6.69, or 8.2 percent, to $88.68 and Burlington Stores added $11.86, or 16 percent, to $86.04.
Other retailers like Home Depot, TJX and Signet Jewelers also rose as consumer stocks reached all-time highs. Perkins, of Retail Metrics, said chains like Dollar Tree were able to win over new customers after the Great Recession, and low-cost clothing companies like TJX, the parent of TJ Maxx, have also performed well since that time.
Health care stocks, which are still trading lower than they were at the start of this year, took hefty losses after weak results from Medtronic, one of the world's largest medical device companies.
Matt Miksic, a medical device analyst for UBS, said some investors worried that Medtronic's results mean a lot of drug and medical device companies will face slower growth. Miksic said Medtronic reported weak sales "across pretty much every one of their categories in the U. S. "
The company also cut its profit guidance. It sank $6.98, or 8.7 percent, to $73.60. Health care products giant Johnson & Johnson slid $2.26, or 2 percent, to $112.74 and Abbott Laboratories, which makes infant formula, drugs and medical devices, gave up $1.66, or 4.2 percent, to $38.10.
Medical supplier Patterson Cos. plunged, touching a three-year low, after it said its dental business struggled in the second quarter and its animal health business was hurt by weak prices for brand-name drugs. Patterson cuts its profit forecast and its shares dropped $7.95, or 16.7 percent, to $39.56.
Campbell Soup's profit in its fiscal first quarter was better than expected thanks to lower expenses and better sales of snacks like Pepperidge Farm. Hormel, the maker of Spam, reported better results from its refrigerated foods business and its Jennie-O turkey unit. Hormel also gave solid guidance for the current fiscal year. Campbell Soup gained $1.98, or 3.6 percent, to $57.02 and Hormel rose 92 cents, or 2.6 percent, to $35.86.
Dr. Pepper Snapple Group said it will buy fruit drink maker Bai Brands for $1.7 billion. Bai Brands markets its drinks as having fewer calories than other brands and doesn't use artificial sweeteners. Dr. Pepper Snapple stock picked up $2.25, or 2.6 percent, to $87.50.
Industrial companies, including makers of aircraft and engines and other equipment, continued to rise. Companies like Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman were trading around record highs before the election and they have done better than the broader market since then. Boeing climbed $2.50, or 1.7 percent, to $149.52 Tuesday.
Oil prices wobbled and energy companies fell. Benchmark U. S. crude lost 21 cents to $48.03 a barrel in New York. Brent crude, the international standard, rose 22 cents to $49.12 a barrel in London. The price of oil rose about 4 percent Monday.
Investors continued to sell short-term bonds, which sent their prices lower. The yield on the two-year Treasury note rose to 1.09 percent, its highest in six years. Longer-term bond prices held steady. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note remained at 2.31 percent.
The dollar, which is trading around 13-year highs, was little changed. It rose to 111.14 yen from 111.07 yen. The euro inched up to $1.0624 from $1.0612.
In other energy trading, wholesale gasoline picked up 1 cent to $1.41 a gallon. Heating oil remained at $1.53 a gallon. Natural gas rose 3 cents to $2.98 per 1,000 cubic feet.
Gold rose $1.40 to $1,211.20 an ounce. Silver gained 11 cents to $16.63 an ounce. Copper added 3 cents, or 1.2 percent, to $2.54 a pound.
Britain's FTSE 100 rose 0.6 percent. France's CAC 40 added 0.4 percent while the DAX in Germany gained 0.3 percent. Japan's Nikkei 225 dipped after a powerful earthquake in northern Japan, but the index finished 0.3 percent higher. The earthquake set off a small tsunami, but it appeared to cause only minor damage and injuries. South Korea's Kospi rose 0.9 percent and the Hang Seng in Hong Kong climbed 1.4 percent.

Today in Entertainment: Kanye West hospitalized after LAPD visit, James Corden to host Grammys

Here's what's new and interesting in the world of entertainment and the arts today:
The vault is opening. Very slowly.
When Prince passed away on April 21, he reportedly left hundreds of unreleased songs in a vault at his Paisley Park estate in Chanhassen, Minn. The very tip of that musical iceberg is now visible, as NPG and Warner Bros. today released "Moonbeam Levels," a song originally recorded in 1982 during the same recording sessions for his smash album "1999. " While it was later considered for inclusion on the 1999 album "Rave Un2 the Joy Fantastic" and has been bootlegged in the past, the song never officially saw the light of day until now.
The mid-tempo tune is largely piano-driven but features some vintage Prince guitar flourishes and subtle synth. Overall, it would fit comfortably on either "1999" or 1984's "Purple Rain," although it'd be a sin to break up the already well-established flow of those beloved records. ABC News premiered the song for fans at a listening session at New York’s Cutting Room Recording Studios.
"Moonbeam" can be found on the new collection titled "Prince 4Ever," which was released today, and features 40 songs including "Kiss," "When Doves Cry" and "Purple Rain. " A deluxe reissue of "Purple Rain" will be released next year and will include a second album of previously unreleased material.
During a U. K. radio appearance, Chicago artist Chance the Rapper extended a special prayer to Kanye West, who was hospitalized in Los Angeles on Monday .
On Tuesday, Chance stopped by Trevor Nelson's BBC Radio 1Xtra and performed two songs with the Social Experiment.
During the performance of "All We Got" from his mixtape "Coloring Book," which opens with the lines: "This ain't no intro, this the entree/ Hit that intro with Kanye/ And sound like André," Chance took a moment to offer some words to his mentor.
“I want to extend a very special prayer to my big brother, Kanye West," he said. "I know there's a lot of weird folks out there. But you already know that I'm a hundred grand. I want to just extend this prayer and extend this love from all the way in Britain. We might come home early to see this man. Happy Thanksgiving.”
Chance also spoke about his friendship with and appreciation of West. When asked what he thinks West is going through, Chance said, "I think everybody goes through it. And I think right now, probably what he needs more than anything is his real, close friends and family around. "
Listen to Chance's prayer for West here or listen to the full segment and performance here. Chance the Rapper's appearance kicks off at around the 2:16 mark.
CBS has announced its host for the 59th Grammy Awards, and for the first time in five years it’s not LL Cool J.
Instead, James Corden, “The Late, Late Show” host and star of the wildly successful “Carpool Karaoke” videos, will lead music’s biggest award ceremony when it airs on Feb. 12, 2017.
The British comedic actor, who took over his late-night slot from Craig Ferguson in 2015, has become a breakout success, and part of the reason is his unabashed enthusiasm for pop music.
I am truly honored to be hosting the Grammys next year. It's the biggest, most prestigious award show in music and I feel incredibly lucky to be part of such an incredible night.

The Los Angeles Police Department visited Kanye West as part of a disturbance call Monday, according to law enforcement sources, a day after the rapper abruptly canceled the rest of his tour.
The sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, did not provide details about the incident but confirmed that police were called about 1:20 p.m. The case turned into a “medical emergency” and was handed off from the LAPD to the Los Angeles Fire Department, the sources said.
West agreed to seek medical treatment, according to a law enforcement source, and he was treated for stress and exhaustion at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.
Realty TV star Kris Jenner, who is West’s mother-in-law, told Vanity Fair on Monday night that West as “exhausted” but doing “good.”

If you're still recovering emotionally from the incinerator scene in "Toy Story 3," please look away from the teaser trailer for "Cars 3," which was released Monday.
Pixar meets NASCAR meets nightmare in the summer 2017 release as Lightning McQueen hits the track as the leader of the pack and then, after a shifty move by another car, hits the track wall. Ominous smoke and sparks and slow-mo are involved as our hero launches sideways into the air doing barrel roll after out-of-control barrel roll.
"From this moment, everything will change," reads the tagline.
Our inner child is sobbing already. Pass the popcorn, please, and don't text and drive.
"Black Panther" has added Academy Award-nominated actress Angela Bassett to its cast.
Marvel Studios has announced that Bassett will be playing Ramonda, mother of T'Challa (a.k.a. Black Panther).
In the comics, Ramonda was T'Chaka's second wife and one-time queen of Wakanda. Originally from South Africa, T'Chaka married Ramonda after his previous wife, N'Yami, died giving birth to T'Challa. She was abducted and held captive by a man named Anton Prestorius until T'Challa rescued her and welcomed her back to Wakanda.
Bassett was most recently seen in the latest season of "American Horror Story" as Monet Tumusiime.
"Black Panther" will see Chadwick Boseman reprise his role as the titular superhero. The film also stars Michael B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker , Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke and Florence Kasumba.
Directed by Ryan Coogler , "Black Panther" is scheduled to hit theaters Feb, 16, 2018.
Legendary Entertainment has reached an agreement with the estate of Frank Herbert for the television and film adaptation rights to Herbert’s "Dune," the iconic sci-fi book released in 1965.
Herbert’s tale centers around Paul Atreides and the politics of controlling the desert planet Arrakis and its resources.
Adapted into a 1984 film by David Lynch -- as well as a 2014 documentary about cult director Alejandro Jodorowsky's failed attempt to bring it to the screen in the '70s ("Jodorowsky's Dune") -- "Dune" has been an obvious influence on "Star Wars" and "The Matrix. "
The projects, whatever they might eventually be, would be produced by Thomas Tull , Mary Parent and Cale Boyter, with Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt and Kim Herbert serving as executive producers.
First he tackled “Saturday Night Live,” and now groundbreaking comedian Dave Chappelle has his sights set on Netflix.
The Internet TV network announced Monday that the comedian, along with director Stan Lathan, would produce a new stand-up comedy special for Netflix in 2017.
But wait, there’s more.

Just days after pledging allegiance to President-elect Donald Trump — and hours after cutting short a concert in Sacramento — Kanye West called off his L. A. date Sunday night at The Forum.
The concert was canceled about three hours before showtime. No statement from West’s label or the tour’s promoter, Live Nation , was immediately available.
The Forum sent out a tweet Sunday about 5 p.m. noting that the show had been axed. Refunds, the venue’s announcement said, would be available at the point of purchase.

Now word comes from Times staff writer Gerrick Kennedy that the artist will be cancelling more of his concert dates.
Green Day is at its best when a widely divisive president ascends to power.
That was true in 2004 for “American Idiot,” and it’s maybe even more true in 2016 for “Revolution Radio.” At Sunday’s American Music Awards , where Green Day played the double-time barnstormer “Bang Bang,” the band had the one truly political moment of the night when its members led a chant of “No Trump , no KKK, no fascist U. S. A.”
It wasn’t quite a real risk for the band, which enjoyed a mid-career renaissance for saying similar things about George W. Bush. Nor were too many in the audience inclined to disagree with the group.

One of this holiday season’s most anticipated – and most timely – films, director Peter Berg’s Boston Marathon bombing drama “Patriots Day,” had its unveiling Thursday evening, drawing a warm reception from the audience at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood that could portend a potent run at the box office and perhaps in this year’s awards race as well.
The special closing-night presentation of this year’s AFI Fest, the debut of “Patriots Day” came just 3½ years after the events the movie dramatizes – and barely more than a week after a bitterly divisive presidential election in which thorny questions of the proper response to terrorism loomed large.

Lisa Masters, an actress who appeared in shows including “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and “Law & Order: SVU,” was found dead earlier this week in her hotel room in Peru, her manager confirmed to the Los Angeles Times on Friday. She was 52.
Police in Lima told the Associated Press that they are investigating the case as a possible suicide. Her cellphone included directions on how to reach her family in the United States, the AP said Thursday.
“In these darkening days, we hope those who have had the pleasure of knowing her will see how brightly she shined and will find that light within themselves and continue to share it with others — just as she would have,” manager Christopher Silveri said via email from New York.

For two years running, the Latin Grammy Awards show has offered high moments of political drama.
In 2014, the telecast was delayed by 20 minutes to show President Obama delivering a speech on immigration. Once the show got rolling, the politically minded Puerto Rican band Calle 13 sang a rousing political anthem that ended with a show of support for the 43 disappeared Mexican students from Ayotzinapa.
Last year, the gala featured a lively performance of “Somos Más Americanos” (We Are More American) — a defiant song about immigrant life — by the Mexican bands Los Tigres del Norte and Maná. At the end of the tune, the two bands held up a sign that read “Latinos Unidos No Voten Por Racistas” (Latinos United, Don’t Vote for Racists), a reference to Donald Trump ’s declarations about Mexican immigrants being criminals and rapists.
So expectations were high that this year’s awards, held Thursday night at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, would offer an impassioned outcry over Trump’s election to the presidency — which has already spurred talk of mass deportations and the construction of a border wall.
Not so much. ....
The 17th Latin Grammys are more likely to be remembered for the dramatic laser-light-filled duet between former couple Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez.

You thought Kanye West would stay quiet about the election? You thought wrong. (Seriously, if you did take that bet? Lousy odds, kids. Bad move.)
Yeezy cut loose at the San Jose stop of his Saint Pablo Tour on Thursday night, revealing he would have gone against his wife's endorsement of Hillary Clinton and picked the president-elect -- if he'd voted at all.
"I told you I didn't vote ... but if I would've voted, I would've voted on Trump," he said, earning a chorus of boos and a wee smattering of support. According to the San Jose Mercury News , folks threw things at him -- hats, shoes, T-shirts -- and complained that he talked too much during the show.
Video clips and quotes can be seen on social media and in roundups like the ones from Quartz and the Boom Box , though it's not possible to string the snippets together in order with certainty. But even as stand-alones, they're little bundles of dynamite as he warms up toward supposedly running for prez himself in 2020.
"I hate the fact that because I'm a celebrity, everybody told me not to say that I loved the debates. I loved his approach," the rapper said.
West reportedly orated for 25 minutes and included a comment "specifically to black people":
"Stop focusing on racism," he urged. "This world is racist, OK? Let's stop being distracted to focus on that so much. It's just a... fact. We are a racist country, period. Do not allow people to make us talk about that so... long. ... It's a racist... country. And not one or the other candidate was going to instantly be able to change that because of their views. "
Kanye also seemed a little frustrated by the continuing protests in the wake of the vote.
"Sometimes things you might think are bad have to happen in order for change to ... happen," he said. "Sometimes you might have to not get your way to really understand what to do in the future to be able to get your way. "
Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone better get their "La La's" out -- they're going to be honored for their work in "La La Land" at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival in February.
Stone and Gosling, who won the festival's first Cinema Vanguard Award in 2008, will be given the 2017 Outstanding Performers of the Year award for their work in writer-director Damien Chazelle's film, the festival announced Friday.
“Ryan and Emma’s luminous performances in 'La La Land' remind us of the transformative and magical role of cinema," said film festival executive director Roger Durling, who will moderate the Feb. 3 tribute. "We are so proud to celebrate them and this incredible film and its nod to the classic love stories of old Hollywood with a contemporary twist.”
Recent winners include Brie Larson for "Room" and Saoirse Ronan for "Brooklyn," Steve Carell for "Foxcatcher," Jennifer Lawrence for "The Hunger Games" and "Silver Linings Playbook," Viola Davis for "The Help," Angelina Jolie for "A Mighty Heart" and Helen Mirren for "The Queen. "
The 32nd Santa Barbara International Film Festival will take place at multiple theaters in the beach city from Feb. 1-11, 2017.
The 17th Latin Grammy Awards, held this year at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, is a good bet to bring a fashion-forward crowd to the red carpet. Here are a few images, including another Jennifer Lopez statement outfit, and a gallery with more beyond that.

Gigi Hadid Responds to Melania Trump Impersonation Backlash

Gigi Hadid apologized for her Melania Trump impersonation in a handwritten letter, which she posted via Twitter on Monday, November 21.
As previously reported, the model, 21, faced backlash after poking fun of the future first lady, 46, while cohosting the 2016 American Music Awards with Jay Pharoah on Sunday.
"I was honored to host the AMAs last night and to work with some of the most respected writers in the business. I removed or changed anything in the script that I felt took the joke too far, and whether or not you choose to see it, what remained was done in good humor and with no bad intent," Hadid wrote. "I too have been the center of a nationally televised comedy skit that poked fun at my actions, and was able to find the humor in it. "
In her gag, Hadid — making a duck face and speaking in a heavy Eastern European accent — teased Melania about her Republic National Convention speech. In July, it was revealed that Donald Trump's wife lifted some sentences that Michelle Obama made at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.
"I love my husband President Barack Obama and our children, Sasha and Malia," Hadid said in Melania's voice at L. A.'s Microsoft Theater. The crowd laughed, but other viewers weren't pleased.
"I believe Melania understands show business and the way shows are written and run," Hadid added in her letter. "I apologized to anyone that I offended and have only the best wishes for our country. "

How to buy appliances on Black Friday and Cyber Monday

Appliance retailers are getting in on the holiday sale season, and that’s good news for consumers—if you know what to look for.
Discounts on home appliances tend to be pretty standard across the industry. In an age where consumers can compare prices instantly across multiple retailers, no store wants to be the one with the higher price. That means if one retailer has a sale, most others will follow suit.
However, individual retailers sometimes offer their own special deals—usually involving free delivery, bonus rewards, and special financing. It pays to be aware of these when deciding where to shop.
Our product experts have written this guide so you know what to expect when buying appliances on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. We’ve also looked at the fine print and pulled together some of the best retailer-specific deals you should be looking out for.
A good rule of thumb: If you’re buying a major appliance, don’t pay for delivery. The majority of retailers currently advertise free delivery on appliances above $399 or so, which includes all but the least expensive models out there.
If you do decide to buy a $299 dishwasher, don’t try and haggle for free delivery—the frazzled employees at most big box retailers just don’t have the leeway to make that kind of a change. Instead, look for a retailer with a lower threshold for free delivery and shop there instead.
At some stores, delivery charges might differ depending on where you live. In other words, free delivery might mean dropping the still-boxed appliance at the foot of a driveway, and there may be an additional cost to bring a fridge up five flights of a New York walkup. Check this out ahead of time.
Also, don’t confuse free delivery with free installation or free removal of old appliances. Those services have associated costs and are rarely included along with delivery—and no matter how hard you beg or how angry you get, the delivery team just isn’t equipped to hook up a gas dryer or deal with your local recycling center’s rules for disposing of an old fridge.
Even if you have the cash on hand to pay for appliances in full, financing can be a good way to use someone else’s money to soften the impact of a major purchase.
However, you should be aware that finance specials tend to only delay interest, not eliminate it.
In other words, if you buy appliances with 0% financing for 12 months but wait 12 months and a day to pay it off in full, you’ll still be charged the full amount of delayed interest on the entire purchase for those 12 months. On some store credit cards, that could be as much as 20%—or up to $1,000 on a $5,000 purchase.
Also, check the fine print. Some brands aren’t eligible for some deals (that tends to be true with luxury appliances), and some retailers have additional deals that aren’t heavily advertised.
When you see a fridge marked down 50%, that’s a sign you’re getting a great deal—right?
Wrong. That “original price” is MSRP—which stands for Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price—and nobody should ever pay it. Except for rare cases where retailer discounts are not allowed (Apple products are a famous example) stores almost always have some sort of sale going.
That’s why sites like search through deals to let you know which ones are actually noteworthy—and which ones are just hype. The real deals are harder to come by than you might think: We only found about 20 major appliances at record low prices for this Black Friday.
We’ve decoded retailer websites and read the fine print to find what all the major national appliance retailers are offering.
You should also check expiration dates and fine print, so we’ve included links to the relevant sale pages for each retailer. In addition, check to see if a local retailer might be able to match a national chain’s price or incentives.

When is Thanksgiving 2016? What Day is Thanksgiving On?

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, so make sure you have your turkey, and are getting ready for the shopping and parades. It’s the official start of the Christmas season, with many retail chains beginning their holiday sales. When is Thanksgiving in 2016? Here’s when we celebrate Thanksgiving day.
Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. This year, Thanksgiving falls on November 24. The next day, Black Friday, marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season. Stores across the U. S. have sales and discounts, which are bound to bring in plenty of shoppers. The Monday following Thanksgiving is known as Cyber Monday. Retailers use this day to encourage online shopping and boost electronic sales.
Turkey is synonymous with Thanksgiving. A traditional Thanksgiving feast has a stuffed turkey, mashed potatoes, grave, sweet potato casserole, and to a pumpkin pie for dessert. Twists and changes to this classic dinner are made throughout homes in America, but tradition never goes out of style.
Thanksgiving Day parades are the most popular way to celebrate the occasion. The annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York is filled with giant balloons of popular characters, floats, and musical performances. It is broadcast live by NBC every year. This year marks the 90th celebration of the event.
America’s Thanksgiving Parade is the largest and oldest Thanksgiving parade. It runs from Midtown to Downtown Detroit. Much like the Macy’s parade, this one also features balloons, floats, and celebrities. This parade takes place just before the Detroit Lions’ Thanksgiving football game.
Football is also a very important Thanksgiving tradition. The NFL has held games on Thanksgiving every year since its inception.
A unique White House tradition also takes place each year. The President pardons a turkey every Thanksgiving, sparing the bird from being eaten.

Baffoe: Why Is Brian Kelly Still Notre Dame’s Head Coach?

By Tim Baffoe–
(CBS) Let’s begin here with two simple words in response to a very simple question.
Brian Kelly’s assessment of his own culpability in this case: “Zero. None. " — Irish Illustrated (@PeteSampson_) November 22, 2016
Brian Kelly’s assessment of his own culpability in this case: “Zero. None. "
That case mentioned above is the NCAA deciding that Notre Dame needs to vacate its wins from the 2012 and 2013 seasons due to academic misconduct. Such a penalty really doesn’t seem to fit the crime, but this is the NCAA after all, and their priorities and determinations over what’s a sin, what isn’t, and how much of a sin something can be have never made sense. And vacating wins as penalty so as to magically say those games never happened has always been laughably stupid.
Still, the way Kelly would tell it apparently, we are supposed to believe this was a dastardly plot by an athletic trainer that evaded the ethical eyes of the head coach. Ain’t his fault. I’ll get back to that in a sec.
Notre Dame parted ways with George O’Leary fifteen years ago after he had the football head coaching job for a mere five days. The reason was O’Leary had lied about his own collegiate playing career and a master’s degree that wasn’t.
”I understand that these inaccuracies represent a very human failing,” said then-athletic director Kevin White , “nonetheless, they constitute a breach of trust that makes it impossible for us to go forward with our relationship. I intend to restart our search for a new head football coach immediately.”
O’Leary’s dishonesty was bad and dumb and definitely would have had you and I canned from our non-coaching gigs, and despite his lies not really translating to an ability to win football games, Notre Dame probably made the right call then.
They hired Tyrone Willingham after that. An otherwise good man, his eventual 21-15 record cost him his job prior to his team’s appearance in a 2004 bowl game. Then there was Charlie Weis, who was a grumpy person and worse college football tactician.
Willingham currently serves on the College Football Playoff selection committee. That’s a bit ironic, since his former Fighting Irish employer hasn’t had a playoff appearance since the system’s inception. Who is most at fault for that? Well, this is college football, where it’s supposed to be win or get lost.
Back to Kelly. He has coached the most seasons of any Irish head coach since Lou Holtz, who is also the last ND coach to win a national title. Including the legendary Knute Rockne, only five coaches since the football program started in 1887 have had longer tenures than Kelly.
Meanwhile the current coach finds himself riding out a season that has gotten more embarrassing seemingly every week, the latest being a home loss to Virginia Tech last Saturday after being shutout in the fourth quarter 13-0 to lose 34-31. His team now sits at 4-7, four of those losses to teams that currently have losing records, and needs an unlikely win against USC this week to maybe be considered for a bowl that Kelly doesn’t even want to play in.
Brian Kelly: "I’m not real supportive of a 5-7 football team in bowl games.” Said decision would be up to the admin. — Irish Illustrated (@PeteSampson_) November 20, 2016
Brian Kelly: "I’m not real supportive of a 5-7 football team in bowl games.” Said decision would be up to the admin.
If the 2012 and ‘13 wins are vacated, Brian Kelly would be 38-30 with the Irish, giving him a lower winning percentage than the awful eras of Weis or Willingham. He’d also then be just 3-17 versus ranked opponents in his time in South Bend. If Notre Dame considers itself a premiere program, it’s difficult to come up with a rationale for why missing a bowl game entirely after a 3-3 record in bowls (only two of which were of the New Year’s Day or later variety) allows a coach to keep his job in a profession where it’s all about what have you done for me lately. But that’s just the wins and losses aspect.
Since taking over the Fighting Irish football program, a student videographer was made to film practice in dangerous weather conditions in 2010, and the kid died. Kelly never took any ownership of that. Actually the school made it a “we” thing in order to deflect from Kelly, and school president Rev. John I. Jenkins even said at the time ,
“Coach Kelly was hired not only because of his football expertise, but because we believed his character and values accord with the highest standards of Notre Dame. All we have seen since he came to Notre Dame, and everything we have learned in our investigation to date, have confirmed that belief. For those reasons I am confident that Coach Kelly has a bright future leading our football program.”
Mind you, this was two months after the school was aware that Lizzy Seeberg, a student at nearby St. Mary’s College, had killed herself 10 days after reporting that Notre Dame football player Prince Shembo — who would later murder an ex-girlfriend’s dog — had raped her. In those 10 days, Seeberg was bullied and intimidated by other Irish football players and Shembo’s lawyer until she was dead. Kelly took the whole thing so seriously that he cracked wise with reporters on a conference call about the Chicago Tribune dedicating so much time and resources to the story. And it sure is nice when you know your campus police department will have yours and football’s best interests at heart over victims of sexual assault, especially when the Indiana Supreme Court recently ruled the university’s cops do not have to release crime reports about student athletes to the public.
Still Kelly kept his job despite two persons’ blood puddling all the way to his feet. Not to mention the Manti Te’o girlfriend hoax. So galling as it might be to hear him say “Zero. None” when questioned of his responsibility in his players fudging schoolwork, you can’t call it surprising considering the school has fostered a culture that allows Kelly such brashness. Roger Sherman at SB Nation compiled a handy list of all the times Kelly has tossed his players under the bus (and denied doing so) rather than own any football failure. That immunity to culpability would also include him expressing some public insubordination toward his AD Jack Swarbrick after Swarbrick gave Kelly a vote of confidence. Said Kelly last month :
“Well I was disappointed actually. But anytime that your athletic director has to come out and say that, as a head coach you’re disappointed that any kind of comments like that have to be made. So I didn’t ask him, that was his decision, but I clearly understand what he was doing. He was probably sick and tired of being sick and tired, too. But for me it’s disappointing, certainly, that you have to make those comments.”
That’s a guy responding to his boss saying he wants the guy back. That despite this season alone six of Kelly’s players being arrested in two separate incidents (and four of them suiting up for the team’s first game anyway) and Kelly firing his defensive coordinator midseason. And now the NCAA punishment for being less than the academic champion Notre Dame football purports itself to be.
So what’s keeping Brian Kelly in South Bend? Maybe it’s recruiting, and the 2017 ND class currently ranks sixth in the country per But Kelly has four recruiting classes in his time there that were outside the top ten and one tied for tenth with Louisiana-Monroe. And all that has translated to one appearance in a National Championship game that was the second-largest margin of losing in that game this century.
Kelly isn’t Alabama’s Nick Saban. If you want to be a surly ass if not a borderline mob boss, your record at least needs to back that up. College football is an institution that is inherently morally bankrupt, but that dearth of humanity only washes when one is winning. Kelly’s team this season is trash, and he’s had multiple underachieving seasons to go with severe ethical failings under his nose and damn near no decent response to any of it by him the entire time. At the end of the day, Brian Kelly seems to be a really bad human being, which in the context of college football is nothing new or necessarily a liability. But the dude has engineered an X’s and O’s trainwreck in the process while remaining grossly smug.
Meanwhile, Charlie Strong, whose Texas Longhorns beat Notre Dame this season in the only entertaining game of Notre Dame’s season and who by all accounts is a great guy who positively impacts his players’ lives off the field, has players protesting the probability of him losing his job. Chicago Sky player Imani Boyette, whose husband currently plays for Strong and was in tears talking about his coach Monday , tweeted an impassioned defense of Strong this week that included the following:
It's frustrating bc I have seen the change in my husband under this man. I have seen the change in academics, standards, etc. — Imani Boyette (@ImaniBoyette) November 21, 2016
It's frustrating bc I have seen the change in my husband under this man. I have seen the change in academics, standards, etc.
Coach Strong taught these men how to b black in a hostile environment, how to value women & how to carry yourself w respect on/off the field — Imani Boyette (@ImaniBoyette) November 21, 2016
Coach Strong taught these men how to b black in a hostile environment, how to value women & how to carry yourself w respect on/off the field
Strong’s players then showed up to and gave him a standing ovation at his weekly press conference on Monday. Think of any sort of emotional response like that for Kelly, known most for screaming himself purple at refs and his own players.
The University of Notre Dame has shown little willingness to slap Kelly’s wrist about anything for game losses to people dying because of his program. But what about everything that is the Fighting Irish tenure of Brian Kelly is worth Brian Kelly? What merits keeping him at a program that supposedly preaches some sense of higher standard?
Could it be “Zero. None”?

From Obama to Trump, D. C. and the arts could shift toward a big chill

While the mood was celebratory and festive, it was hard not to think that such events are likely to take a significant turn as the nation prepares to shift into a new phase of the culture wars amid a Donald Trump presidency -- from the warm feelings on display toward a big chill.
Hollywood and the arts are well known for their liberal leanings, and entertainment heavyweights came out in force for Hillary Clinton's candidacy. Bruce Springsteen, one of Tuesday's honorees, was among the many who performed to support her. Robert De Niro, another recipient, labeled Trump "an embarrassment to this country" before the election.
Trump has traveled in celebrity circles, including his interactions with a wide assortment of the famous -- or in some cases, notorious -- hosting "Celebrity Apprentice. " But the tone and content of his campaign was especially hostile toward -- and elicited commensurate condemnation from -- so-called media elites, many of which were angered and alarmed by perceived appeals to racism and xenophobia.
Moreover, Trump added fuel to that fire over the weekend via Twitter, demanding an apology from the cast of the musical "Hamilton" for its public appeal to Vice President-elect Mike Pence and directing additional criticism at "Saturday Night Live" for satirizing him.
Related: 'Hamilton' star to Trump: 'There's nothing to apologize for'
Those in the arts and other high-profile endeavors, by contrast, have warmly embraced Obama, due both to his policies and the historic nature of his election. His ease in these settings was evident during his remarks Tuesday, which included teasing basketball great Michael Jordan for having become an internet meme, gushing about actress Cicely Tyson and lauding Ellen DeGeneres for having the courage to so publicly come out as a lesbian almost 20 years ago.
It's worth noting, too, that Obama was born near the end of the baby-boom generation, and his entertainment tastes and sports idols have reflected those values. Like most people in their 50s, he didn't need cue cards or prompting to croon Al Green's "Let's Stay Together," as he did a few years ago at the Apollo Theater.
These occasions are largely ceremonial, and one more is scheduled before the year's over: the annual Kennedy Center Honors. That star-studded program will again be televised by CBS and hosted by Stephen Colbert, who, along with most of the late-night landscape, has turned political comedy into hostile territory for the President-elect.
While it's normally difficult to reject the siren song of Washington, given the polarized political climate, many of the luminaries recognized at these events won't readily line up to have their pictures taken with the President during a Trump administration. And one suspects there will be similar reticence within the ranks of NFL and NBA stars, whose teams traditionally celebrate championships with, among other things, a trip to the White House.
Those feeling wistful about the end of Obama's presidency will likely find weightier matters to contemplate than whether celebrities are comfortable visiting the White House. Still, watching him interact with the honorees Tuesday felt like a tangible demonstration, on that front, of the end of an era.

Hong Kong Disneyland Is About to Get a $1.4 Billion Upgrade

Walt Disney will expand its loss-making Hong Kong Disneyland theme park with a $1.4 billion investment to try to attract more visitors, the U. S. entertainment company and its local government partner said on Tuesday.
Hong Kong Disneyland, the firm’s smallest park, has been hit by weak local retail and tourism markets and suffered its first loss in four years in 2015. It cut an unspecified number of jobs earlier this year.
The Hong Kong resort also faces competition from other theme park operators fighting for mainland Chinese visitors, including Dalian Wanda, which plans to spend billions of dollars to launch at least 20 tourism parks in China.
The Hong Kong government, which owns a 53% stake in the theme park, will chip in $750 million, while Disney will pay approximately $650 million for the expansion running from 2018 to 2023.
The Hong Kong resort will add Frozen and Marvel themed areas—attractions that it hopes can help differentiate it from other parks around the world, including a Shanghai Disneyland opened in June this year.
Disney dis said this month that attendance had declined at its parks in Hong Kong, Paris and California during the most recent quarter, while four million people visited Shanghai Disneyland in its first four months.
Hong Kong’s retail and tourism industries have been ailing. The city saw a 6.1% decrease in the number of tourists in the first nine months this year, including a bigger drop from mainland China, according to official tourist board data.
“Everybody knows tourism in the region, especially in Hong Kong, has been challenging, so it’s not just Hong Kong Disneyland,” Samuel Lau, managing director of Hong Kong Disneyland said at a press conference announcing the plan.
“We need to quickly double up to make sure we invest in tourism in the long run. Some of these projects will take time to build and create, and now is the time.”
Disney said the expansion will create 3,500 jobs and eventually bring another 600 jobs within the park.
Hong Kong Disneyland employed more than 5,300 full time and 2,500 part time staff, making it one of Hong Kong’s largest employers, according to its Annual Business Review for fiscal year 2015.

Wall Street hits record highs, oil prices slump

By Sam Forgione NEW YORK, Nov 22 (Reuters) - Wall Street's three main stock indexes hit record highs for a second straight day on Tuesday before trimming gains, while European shares also rose on expectations that markets would benefit from U. S. President-elect Donald Trump's policies. The Dow topped the 19,000 mark and the S&P 500 moved past 2,200 for the first time ever, while the pan-European STOXX 600 index and the FTSEurofirst 300 of top regional shares climbed to the highest levels since Nov. 10. Declines in U. S. healthcare stocks chipped away at the indexes gains, however. U. S. shares have rallied since the Nov. 8 U. S. election as Trump has promised tax cuts, higher spending on infrastructure and simpler regulations in the banking and healthcare industries. A sharp rally in metals prices and mining stocks boosted European shares as the recent trend of a rotation to cyclical plays continued. The European Basic Resources index, closed up more than 3.4 percent after prices of major industrial metals such as copper and aluminum increased. "Optimism is returning because of the potential that exists in the form of fiscal stimulus, infrastructure spending and tax cuts," said Robert Pavlik, chief market strategist at Boston Private Wealth in New York. MSCI's all-country world equity index was last up 0.74 point, or 0.18 percent, at 413.04. The Dow Jones industrial average was up 27.43 points, or 0.14 percent, at 18,984.12. The S&P 500 was down 0.14 point, or 0.01 percent, at 2,198.04. The Nasdaq Composite was up 10.15 points, or 0.19 percent, at 5,379.01. Europe's broad FTSEurofirst 300 index closed up 0.13 percent at 1,344.15. Oil prices fell in volatile trade on worries Iran and Iraq were not ready to agree on an OPEC output freeze. Prices earlier rose to their highest levels this month on reports that cartel members had overcome their internal disputes. Brent crude was last down 40 cents, or 0.82 percent, at $48.5 a barrel. U. S. crude was down 77 cents, or 1.6 percent, at $47.47 per barrel. U. S. crude rose as high as $49.20 a barrel earlier, while benchmark Brent crude touched $49.96. The dollar edged higher against the yen after touching a session high of 111.35 yen, just below Monday's nearly 6-month high of 111.36 yen, on data showing a surge in U. S. existing home sales last month. The data reinforced expectations not only that the U. S. Federal Reserve would raise interest rates next month, but would tighten monetary policy further next year. "The greenback should continue to benefit from mounting expectations for inflation and a potentially faster pace of Fed rate hikes," said Omer Esiner, chief market analyst at Commonwealth Foreign Exchange in Washington. U. S. two-year Treasury note yields steadied after rising to a more than six-year high of 1.1070 percent earlier. New supply has weighed on shorter-dated debt at the same time as investors are increasingly nervous about impending interest rate hikes. Gold edged lower on reduced appetite for safe-haven assets. Spot gold prices were last down $1.64, or 0.14 percent, at $1,212.02 an ounce.

Trump’s Video Is Evidence That Liberty Is Winning

Now this is very interesting. The president-elect in a transition might normally address the American people through network television. This is how it has normally been done. Donald Trump took another path. His transition team snagged a free YouTube channel, set up a camera, and pushed out a 2-and-a-half minute video on his transition priorities (which didn’t include health care, by the way). It’s had a million views in less than 24 hours.
Equipotency is the greatest gift of the market to humanity, the result of thousands of years of social evolution, arriving ever more to a perfect state of universal human ennoblement. Think of the significance of this. The incoming president is using exactly the same technology that you and I have in our pocket.
What a transformation! FDR ruled the American mind through his special access to radio (his “fireside chats”). This continued through the rise of network television. The monopoly was only recently smashed. Forget the satellite hookups, press contacts, prime-time scheduling, and the rest of the apparatus that privileged the powerful in the past.
Trump’s wealth and incoming power grants him no special technological advantages over the rest of us. He simply grabbed the best tool around for communication, and it is the same tool we all use.
Now, there is a certain irony to this because Trump has a tin ear for the social benefits of “the cyber,” as he kept calling digital tech during the debates. His protectionist and mercantilist ideology sustains a romantic attachment to big industry, construction, and all things brick-and-mortar. During the campaign, he thought nothing of threatening Amazon with antitrust action, for example.
And yet, in a strange way, his political campaign has made extraordinary use of new technology, not because he believes in it ideologically, but simply because it is useful. He once mused that he loved Twitter so much, because it gives him his own personal version of the New York Times. Exactly! He should reflect on how the technology he used to his own personal advantage in the campaign has a similarly high value for society at large.
What does this say about the prospects for human freedom? Very good things. It is an indication of growing equipotency, which is to say, the equal distribution of the power to control resources across the entire population. This is the greatest gift of the market to humanity, the result of thousands of years of social evolution, arriving ever more to a perfect state of universal human ennoblement.
Technology > Politics
Politics is entertaining, intriguing, and sometimes terrifying. People tend to look at political trends to assess the prospects for liberty, but it’s not always a great indicator of where we actually stand. For example, there is good reason to be alarmed about the rise of nationalism in the US and Europe, but when you look at the deeper reality you see that global trade and the international division of labor have never been more integral to our lives.
There are even deeper revolutionary trends afoot that belie the centralizing trends you see in politics. It’s politics vs. technology. And remember that technology will inevitably win this struggle. That’s because knowledge and know-how becomes the common property of humanity and persists over time, whereas politics is comparatively transitory.
Regimes come and go. They can slow or speed the pace of technological development. But once the technology is here, it stays regardless of political trends.
A regime can try to abolish technological progress or make it impossible to escape amidst a thicket of control – you see this in Cuba – but it can’t succeed over the long term. Eventually society pushes past political trends to deploy the existing knowledge base of human experience. And it improves, outwitting the capacity for regulators to control it.
So let’s look at other forms of equipotency that exists on the leading edge today. My friend Justin Ptak started the list, others in his network filled it out a bit, and I’ve added some of my own.
Youtube vs. network television
Yelp vs. so-called experts

Ellen DeGeneres denied entrance to White House after forgetting ID

WASHINGTON — Comedian Ellen DeGeneres was in D. C. Tuesday to be presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, but it seems she forgot to bring proper identification.
DeGeneres tweeted a photo of herself waiting outside the White House, saying, “They haven’t let me in to the White House yet because I forgot my ID. #NotJoking #PresidentialMedalOfFreedom.”
She, of course, eventually made it inside – in time to participate in a “mannequin challenge” that she also shared on Twitter.
Also on the list of those being presented with the nation’s highest civilian honor were Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Robert De Niro, Bill and Melinda Gates, Tom Hanks and Lorne Michaels.
“The Presidential Medal of Freedom is not just our nation’s highest civilian honor – it’s a tribute to the idea that all of us, no matter where we come from, have the opportunity to change this country for the better. From scientists, philanthropists, and public servants to activists, athletes, and artists, these 21 individuals have helped push America forward, inspiring millions of people around the world along the way,” said President Barack Obama.

Top U. S. civilian honor goes to Diana Ross, 20 others

Washington — President Barack Obama awarded the nation’s highest civilian honor to Detroit native Diana Ross and 20 other groundbreaking actors, musicians, athletes and innovators who inspired him over the years and “helped make me who I am.”
“Everybody on this stage has touched me in a very powerful, personal way, in ways that they probably couldn’t imagine,” Obama said in concluding an hour-long ceremony Tuesday in the White House East Room.
The Presidential Medal of Freedom recognizes especially meritorious contributions to the national interests of the United States, its security and its culture. Obama called the 2016 group a “particularly impressive class.”
Ross and Bruce Springsteen were recognized for their music.
In the film world, Obama honored Tom Hanks, Robert De Niro, Robert Redford and Cicely Tyson.
Michael Jordan and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, two of the greatest basketball players ever, were also among the honorees. Obama noted how Jordan’s name is synonymous with excellence.
“There is a reason you call somebody ‘the Michael Jordan of,’” Obama said. “The Michael Jordan of neurosurgery, or the Michael Jordan of rabbis, or the Michael Jordan of outrigger canoeing. Everyone knows what you’re talking about.”
Other honorees included philanthropists Bill and Melinda Gates, comedian Ellen DeGeneres and broadcaster Vin Scully.
Obama said the people receiving the medal helped push America forward and inspired millions around the world.
Posthumous honors went to Native American advocate Elouise Cobell and Rear Adm. Grace Hopper.
Others receiving the award included:

Man drowned daughter in baptismal pool, police say

Gerardo Ordaz was booked on suspicion of murder.
(Healdsburg Police)
Police officers found a California man Sunday night naked and holding the lifeless body of his 4-year-old daughter, shortly after authorities say he drowned the girl in a baptismal pool at a Catholic church, KRON4 reported.
Gerardo Mendoza Ordaz, 42, was booked into Sonoma County Jail on suspicion of murder and is set to be arraigned on Tuesday afternoon.
“We cannot disclose a motive at this time, but we determined [the death] was not accidental,” Healdsburg Police Chief Kevin Burke said.
Officials believe Ordaz had been at St. John’s Catholic Church in Healdsburg with his daughter and his 9-year-old son, who police said was partially clothed when officers found Ordaz. The baptismal pool at the church is about a foot deep, KRON4 reported.
Paramedics attempted to resuscitate the girl at the scene, but she was pronounced dead at a local hospital around 10 p.m., SFGate reported. An autopsy was scheduled, but the results have not yet been released.
Ordaz lives with the children’s mother and police said they had not received any domestic violence calls from the household in the past.
“This is very unusual,” Burke said. “I’ve never seen anything like it in my career.”

Texas A&M serving up Thanksgiving dinner in space

The crew of the International Space Station will be eating Thanksgiving dinners prepared by some Aggie scientists. A team at the Space Food Research Facility at Texas A&M University created the meals. They came up with sliced turkey, candied yams, apricot cobbler, and other foods. The scientists put the foods in pouches that give the food a very long shelf life. The space station crew will heat up the food in an oven, and eat it out of the corner of the pouch. Since 2007, the Space Food Research Facility has produced more than 50 kinds of food items for astronauts on the International Space Station and throughout NASA's human spaceflight program.

Jared Kushner defends Trump, Bannon against racism and antisemitism allegations

Jared Kushner, the grandson of Holocaust survivors and the son of major Democratic donors, has held a prominent position in the campaign of his father-in-law, Donald Trump. Forbes called him, "A devout Jew advising a president-elect embraced by the alt-right and supported by the KKK. " However, Kushner has consistently defended Trump and their close relationship. "I don’t think it’s very controversial," he told Forbes in a report published online Tuesday, "in an election to become the president of the United States to say that your position is to put America first and to be nationalist as opposed to a globalist. "

Further, Kushner stated that he feels Trump has been hostilely and incorrectly characterized by the media. "I just know a lot of the things that people try to attack him with are just not true or overblown or exaggerations," he said. And, despite the rash of racist acts and vandalism recently carried out in Trump's name, Kushner insisted, "I know his character. I know who he is, and I obviously would not have supported him if I thought otherwise. If the country gives him a chance, they’ll find he won’t tolerate hateful rhetoric or behavior.” Regarding the support Trump has garnered from white nationalists and the KKK, Kushner said, "Trump has disavowed their support 25 times. He’s renounced hatred, he’s renounced bigotry, and he’s renounced racism. I don’t know if he could ever denounce them enough for some people. " He then paraphrased Ronald Regan in saying "Just because they support me doesn’t mean that I support them. " Kushner's faith in Trump, Forbes reported, is matched by his support for Steve Bannon, Trump's recently appointed strategic adviser, who has been embroiled in controversy of his own. "All I know about Steve," Kushner said, "is my experience working with him. He’s an incredible Zionist and loves Israel. " An Orthodox Jew, whose wife Ivanka Trump converted to Judaism before they married, Kushner and his family have connections to Israel. Along with his father, also a prominent real-estate developer, Kushner was listed in a 2015 report by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) as a benefactor for its real-estate committee, which required a donation of at least $36,000 to the powerful pro-Israel lobbying group.

‘Nothing to See Here’ Headlines Conceal Police Violence at Dakota Access

Unarmed Water Defenders were shot with water cannons while praying at the front line. (Image: Avery White/Youth Radio)
The New York Times ( 11/21/16 ) gets a failing grade for its headline over a report on escalating police violence against Native American activists and others defending the Missouri River against the Dakota Access Pipeline: 16 Arrested at North Dakota Pipeline Protest
Sorry, New York Times –when more than 470 people have been arrested opposing the pipeline since August, that’s not the news. Nor did the print edition headline—“16 Arrested at North Dakota Pipeline Protest as Tensions Continue”—add anything.
No, the news in the story came in the second paragraph, where reporter Jonah Engel Bromwich wrote that “officials also defended their use of fire hoses against protesters the night before, despite the below-freezing weather.”
Perhaps Times editors thought that wasn’t news, because police use of “water cannons” against demonstrators was mentioned in an AP report that ran on the Times website the day before ( 11/20/16 ) under the anodyne headline “Police, Protesters Face Off at Dakota Access Pipeline.” If that was the case, editors could have found more pressing information than the arrest count in the eighth paragraph of the latest story:
Dallas Goldtooth, a spokesman for the Indigenous Environmental Network, said in a phone interview on Monday that the Oceti Sakowin medical team, which had been working in tandem with medics from the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, had reported that nearly 200 people were injured and 12 people were hospitalized for head injuries. One protester went into cardiac arrest and was revived by the medic team, he said.
NPR ’s website ( 11/21/16 ) likewise reported the story of police violence leading to widespread injuries under an innocuous headline: “Police, Protesters Clash Near Dakota Access Pipeline Route,” as did ABC News ( 11/21/16 ) with its “Hundreds of Dakota Access Protesters Clash With Police.” This “clash” framing—also utilized in headlines on CBS ( 11/20/16 ) and CNN ( 11/20/16 )—implies a parity between police in military vehicles, employing water cannon, tear gas, pepper spray, rubber-coated bullets and concussion grenades (one of which may have cost an activist her arm ), on the one hand, and basically unarmed civilians on the other. (Police say one officer was hit in the head by a thrown rock.)
One almost gets the sense that editors writing headlines like these have enlisted themselves on the sheriff’s team, waving spectators away with a “nothing to see here, folks.”
The Washington Post ( 11/21/16 ) got the news into the headline, but framed it from a police perspective: “Police Defend Use of Water Cannons on Dakota Access Protesters in Freezing Weather.”
Some headlines did a better job of focusing on what was actually new while conveying a sense of the shocking violence employed by militarized police against people defending their water supply: “Officers Douse Dakota Access Oil Pipeline Protesters With Water in Subfreezing Weather” ( Denver Post , 11/21/16 ) “Dakota Pipeline: Protesters Soaked With Water in Freezing Temperature” ( , 11/21/16 ) “Dakota Access Pipeline: 300 Protesters Injured After Police Use Water Cannons” ( Guardian , 11/21/16 ) “Dakota Access Pipeline Protester May Lose Her Arm After Small Explosion, Activists Say” ( LA Times , 11/21/16 )

Trump to spend Thanksgiving at Mar-a-Lago

President-elect Donald Trump will spend Thanksgiving at his Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach.
That's according to Jason Miller, a spokesman for Trump's transition team.
Miller said Trump will get together with family at his Palm Beach home and take a brief break from transition planning. Asked what Trump will be doing, Miller said, "hopefully eating some turkey. "
Both the Coast Guard and the Federal Aviation Administration announced restrictions this week around the estate.
Boaters will be prohibited from entering, stopping and/or anchoring within three security zones that include parts of the Lake Worth Lagoon, the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean near Mar-a-lago and the Southern Boulevard Bridge.

‘Pokemon Go’: Can You Use Lucky Eggs During the Thanksgiving Event?

Pokemon Go is preparing to launch a special week-long Thanksgiving event, during which players receive double the number of XP as usual. But the Lucky Egg item already gives users double XP when it’s activated, so how will this work during the Thanksgiving special event, exactly? Is it possible to get a quadruple bonus, or will the Lucky Egg effect just not apply this week?
Niantic answered this question on Twitter today, confirming that when using a Lucky Egg during the Thanksgiving celebration, players will receive four times the XP as normal.
This presents a huge opportunity for Pokemon trainers to gain a significant amount of XP during the next week. The decision also makes sense for Niantic, as Lucky Eggs can be purchased from the game’s shop and so this will likely result in a major sales boost.
Pokemon Go ‘s Thanksgiving event begins on November 23rd, and it concludes the following week on November 30th. So what are the best ways to rake in all the XP possible during that time? Well, you get XP from a lot of basic tasks, including catching and evolving Pokemon. If you have any creatures in your inventory that you are ready to evolve, you might want to wait until tomorrow to do so, as evolving a Pokemon with a Lucky Egg activated will give you 2,000 XP.
To give you an idea of how to make the best use of your time, the following chart illustrates all the ways to get experience points and exactly how much of it you will get if you use a Lucky Egg during the Thanksgiving event, therefore earning a quadruple bonus:

Fantasy Football: Week 12 Add/Drops for Waiver Wire Wednesday

MIAMI, Nov. 22 (UPI) -- With no NFL squads on bye weeks for Week 12, more fantasy teams will be at full strength.
Still, there are plenty of important players available on the waiver wire that can help you now, during your playoff push, or in the postseason.
With A. J. Green, Darren Sproles , Giovani Bernard, and C. J. Prosise getting knocked out indefinitely last week, look for new guys to shine as they take on more prominent roles on stellar offenses.
Here are my top players to add and top players to drop for Week 12:
QB | Carson Wentz; RB | Wendell Smallwood, Kenneth Dixon, Mike Gillislee, Tim Hightower ; WR | DeVante Parker, Tyler Boyd, Adam Thielen; TE | Jared Cook; D/ST | Buffalo Bills ; K | Kai Forbath
QB | Colin Kaepernick ; RB | Adrian Peterson , Bilal Powell, Rex Burkhead, Jerick McKinnon; WR | Brandon LaFell , Cameron Meredith, Marqise Lee, Tajae Sharpe; TE | Vance McDonald; D/ST | Miami Dolphins
QB | Cody Kessler; RB | Terrance West, Isaiah Crowell, Duke Johnson, Giovani Bernard, T. J. Yeldon, Darren Sproles, C. J. Prosise; WR | John Brown ; TE | Zach Miller
Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Carson Wentz might have been dropped before his Week 4 bye, but don't let him hang out on the waiver wire if you are desperate at the position. Wentz just passed for 218 yards and two scores against a vaunted Seattle Seahawks secondary. He gets the Green Bay Packers this week and several other beatable units down the stretch, making him a worthwhile add for depth.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick makes my add list again this week. Kaepernick continues to put up solid fantasy stats, despite not looking like a legitimate NFL passer. He has accounted for multiple touchdowns in three consecutive games. He also has 260 rushing yards in his five starts. I envision Kaepernick as a top-12 option for the next few weeks, mostly because of his ability to fill up the stat sheet.
Wendell Smallwood should be one of the top waiver wire adds for Week 12. With Philadelphia Eagles running backs Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles ailing, Smallwood should produce solid value against the Green Bay Packers. Smallwood should put up low-end RB2 numbers after piling up 17 touches in Week 11, even if one of the aforementioned backs ends up playing. The Packers have allowed seven rushing touchdowns to running backs in the last four weeks.
Kenneth Dixon is the best running back option available for the Baltimore Ravens. He is still second in line for carries behind Terrance West, but I expect him to get more carries down the stretch. He is more of a flier for down the road and a great depth piece for the playoffs. He is only usable this week in deep leagues as a flex play.
Adam Thielen might not sound like a sexy option, but the Minnesota Vikings wide receiver is quietly getting it done. Thielen has scored in two consecutive games, snatching all five of his targets in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals. Look for Thielen to remain a great check down option for Sam Bradford when Stefon Diggs can't get open. He is a safe bet WR3 in Week 12 against the Detroit Lions.
Tyler Boyd has to get more work in Cincinnati after the Bengals lost A. J. Green indefinitely from a hamstring injury. The rookie wide receiver scored the first touchdown of his career last week against the Buffalo Bills and tied his season high with six receptions. The Bengals have a tough divisional test against the Baltimore Ravens on tap for Week 12, but Andy Dalton needs Boyd to step up if the Bengals want to remain a balanced offense. Look for a lot of Boyd and Tyler Eifert on Sunday. Boyd is worth WR3 consideration in deep leagues.
Jared Cook made his first appearance since Week 3 last week against the Washington Redskins. He responded with six catches, 105 yards, and a touchdown. The Green Bay Packers tight end should see plenty of looks from Aaron Rodgers in Week 12 against the Philadelphia Eagles. I will have him ranked as a TE2, only worth starting consideration in deep leagues. The Eagles, while holding tight end yardage to a minimum, have allowed scores to the position in two of its last four games.

'Attitude of gratitude' supplies families with Thanksgiving meals

SAGINAW, MI – "Have an attitude for gratitude. "
That was the Rev. Jim Carlson's message to those who attended the celebration service at St. Mary's of Michigan's annual Thanksgiving Baskets event on Tuesday, Nov. 22, 2016.
The service preceded the distribution of 75 Thanksgiving baskets for families in need of a traditional Thanksgiving meal for this Thursday. The event has been a tradition of St. Mary's for more than a decade now, with employees of the hospital providing meals for both members of the community and for some of their own who work at the hospital.
"There is a lot of love going into these baskets," said Joanne Sparks, mission integration director.
The baskets included potatoes, cranberries, stuffing and a turkey. They also included cleaning supplies and breakfast items so that families are provided with food for the entire day.
The baskets are sponsored by physicians, departments and employees of the hospital. The Catholic Diocese of Saginaw and the Service Mission Committee sponsor and orchestrate the event.
The families who receive the baskets are chosen from a list by the director of the Center of Hope. The selection process starts as early as September. According to Sparks, those who are selected typically "fall through the cracks" in that they are not eligible for certain federal funding and struggle to put food on the table during the holiday season.
"It is a beautiful message to send for Thanksgiving," Sparks said. "To share love, to provide compassion, and just to provide joy and love on people's faces as they receive this outpouring of great love from the associates. "

It's not entirely clear why the video has such an effect but it's thought the file is corrupted or possibly encoded with a malicious bug.
Luckily, there doesn't appear to be any long-lasting effects and the bug can be fixed with a hard reset. This is done by pressing and holding the power button and volume down button simultaneously for iPhone 7, or the power and home button for all other iPhones.
Similarly, in 2015, a text message bug caused iPhones to reboot if received.

Repo Man With Soft Spot Helps Elderly Couple Keep Their Car

(CBS) — A repo man downstate has been in the “asset recovery” business for 20 years, but this week he did something out of character for a repo man: He helped a couple keep their car.
The couple is elderly. She’s in her 70s and he’s in his 80s. They live in Red Bud, Illinois, south of St. Louis.
It’s not as if they owed so much on their car. It’s just that they couldn’t pay it.
And the bank called on 41-year-old Jim Ford to do what he does: repossess vehicles.
The couple invited him in.
“She’s talking to me about how her prescriptions have all tripled in price. And on a fixed income, you can’t do anything when something like that happens,” Ford says.
Ford did his job. He took the car.
“I drove about a block. I called the bank and said, ‘Hey. How about if I just pay this thing current right now?’”
And he ended up starting a Go Fund Me account , which paid for the car in full within hours.
Now he’s kept the account open to help pay for the couple’s prescription drugs.

Here's who loses when the Detroit Pistons move to downtown

Auburn Hills, home of the Palace, appears to be the first loser in the Detroit Pistons return to Downtown.
"We absolutely love being home to the Detroit Pistons," said Auburn Hills Mayor Kevin McDaniel. "Whether the Palace can remain viable without the Pistons there, I guess that's what we'll have to see. "

Pistons owner Tom Gores said the fate of the building hasn't been determined yet, though the team plans to celebrate its history throughout the final season there.
McDaniel said Auburn Hills receives about $174,000 annually in property tax revenue from the Palace, which isn't a big portion of the city's $56 million budget. Still, the loss in prestige hurts and it could be compounded if team owner Tom Gores decides to bulldoze the Palace. McDaniel is confident the property, with easy freeway access, could be redeveloped if needed.
"I think there are about 110 acres, right off I-75," he said. "We've get several high-tech companies in that area. Redevelopment could bring some good paying jobs. "

The move could hurt others as well including:
Throughout the 1980s and '90s, suburban Oakland County was home to half of Detroit's professional sports teams, the Pistons and the Detroit Lions.
The Lions left the Pontiac Silverdome in 2002 for Ford Field in downtown Detroit. Pontiac's hopes of repurposing the 80,000 seat stadium for soccer or other sports failed. The stadium, near the intersection of I-75 and M-59, now stands abandoned, it's eponymous roof in tatters. It likely faces a date with a wrecking ball.
Now with the Pistons leaving, the county is left with no major league sports teams, though many of the athletes make their homes in its wealthy communities.
“We wish the Pistons well," Oakland County Executive Brooks Patterson said in a statement. "Thanks for all the memories.”
"It's going to be devastating for us," said Tiffany Harris, manager of Ciccarelli's Sports Bar across the street from the Palace. "A lot of our business is based on game traffic and other events. We have a lot of Palace employees who come here, too. "
Harris said the bar does a good lunch business from auto suppliers in the area and it's beefing up marketing efforts to attract a larger dinner crowd.
"If we could amp up the happy hour, that would be great," she said. "People are bummed, but we're definitely going to keep our heads up. "
Jean Jernigan, executive director of the Auburn Hills Chamber of Commerce, said it's too early to know how much effect the team's departure will have.
"It depends on what happens to the Palace," she said. "People forget that the Palace is more than just the Pistons. It's an entertainment venue. "
Other businesses expect fallout from the move as well.
"Anytime you lose a venue that's a mile away, it's going to hurt," said Joe Zimmer, who has owned the Culver's Restaurant at the corner of Lapeer Road and Dutton Road, just north of the Palace for nine years. "We do a lot from the Palace but more so when the circus is in town or Walt Disney (shows) than from the Pistons. It's not going to put us out of business, but it does hurt. "
Jim Carpenter, 60, of Lake Orion, is a regular at Ciccarelli's and said he thinks his local watering hole can survive.
"I think they could do OK," he said. "It's a nice restaurant and sometimes Palace traffic is kind of a hindrance. "
►Related: The Detroit Pistons' unforgettable moments at the Palace
The official pizza vendor for the Palace will lose Piston fans to rival Little Caesars, which holds the naming rights to the new arena downtown.
The Flint native was a 20-year-old University of Michigan student in 1987 when he won two season tickets — good for his lifetime — for every event ever to be held at the Palace, as part of a contest for naming the venue.
More than 100,000 entries were received for naming what was then known simply as the Auburn Hills Arena. Binder was one of 1,600 people to offer the name "The Palace. " Their names were placed in a drawing to select the winner, which turned out to be Binder.
"The first month it was open, there was a show every night," Binder told the Free Press for a 1998 profile. "I must have attended 150 events that first year. "
Binder later moved to Chicago for a job, but kept receiving the tickets. It's not clear what will become of his unique deal when the team moves. He couldn't be reached for comment today.
The good news is that for fans who live north, the trip from the Pistons current home in Auburn Hills to their future home in downtown Detroit is about 38 miles and takes about 40 minutes in good traffic. The bad news is the Michigan Department of Transportation just began a $1 billion project to widen and repair I-75. The project could take a decade to complete and will mean orange barrels for the foreseeable future.

Trump: NYT Coverage of Me 'The Roughest of All'

President-elect Donald Trump visited The New York Times on Tuesday and said the paper "is about the roughest of all" in terms of the negative publicity he has received.
Reporters and editors from The Times posted live Twitter updates about Trump's visit.
Trump opened his remarks by saying he has "great respect for the New York Times," but his tone then turned accusatory.
"I've been treated very unfairly," he said.
“I have great respect for the New York Times. I have tremendous respect,” says Trump. “I think I've been treated very rough. "
Trump is speaking in measured, quiet tones. “I will say the Times is about the roughest of all,” he says of NYT’s coverage of his campaign.
Trump then touched on a number of subjects, from black voters ("The African-American community liked me. They liked what I was saying. ") to Hillary Clinton ("I don't want to hurt the Clintons, I really don't. She went through a lot and suffered greatly in many different ways. ")
The meeting took place in the paper's Churchill Room and included a meal of salmon, beef tenderloin, squash, and cupcakes.
"But no one in the room is bothering to eat," reporter Mike Grynbaum tweeted.
The gathering was originally scheduled for Tuesday, but Trump announced on Twitter in the morning he had canceled it "when the terms and conditions of the meeting were changed at the last moment. "
He later posted an update saying the meeting was back on for 12:30 p.m. ET. According to the Times' tweets, the meeting actually began around 1 p.m.
Grynbaum posted a photo of the guest list, which included 28 names — including Trump and his entourage (excluding security), and executives, editors, and journalists from the paper's staff.
The attendees at today’s meeting between the President-elect and The New York Times.
The meeting's format seemed to have opening remarks from Trump and then a Q&A session with those in the room. It provided a glimpse into Trump's campaign, which ended on a high note when he defeated Clinton in the early hours of Nov. 9.
It was reported earlier Tuesday morning Trump would not seek to prosecute Clinton for her use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state and over claims her family's foundation might have conducted a pay-for-play scheme.
He spoke about that decision during the meeting with the Times.
“I don’t want to hurt the Clintons, I really don’t. She went through a lot and suffered greatly in many different ways. "
Trump is pressed if he has definitively ruled out prosecuting Hillary Clinton. “It’s just not something that I feel very strongly about. "
"I think it would be very divisive for the country," Trump says about prosecuting the Clintons.
He also spoke about a variety of other subjects during the one-hour discussion:
Trump says he had added stops in Michigan in final days because their team had heard that Clinton was concerned about the state.
"I'd rather do the popular vote," Trump says. "I think we'd do as well or better. " Says he was "never a fan of the electoral college. "
Tom Friedman asks if Trump will withdraw from climate change accords. Trump: “I’m looking at it very closely. I have an open mind to it. "
Trump says "in theory" he could continue signing checks at his company, but he is "phasing that out now" and giving to his kids.
On Bannon:"If I thought he was a racist or alt-right or any of the things, the terms we could use, I wouldn't even think about hiring him. "
Trump was asked about his meeting with President Barack Obama, which occurred just days after he won the election. It was the first time the pair had met and came after a contentious campaign that saw Obama criticize the real-estate mogul several times as he stumped for Clinton.
"I had a great meeting with President Obama," Trump says, says he never met him before. "I really liked him a lot. "
"He said very nice things after the meeting and I saidvery nice things about him," Trump says of Obama. Says he didn't know if he'd like him.
"I think he's looking to do absolutely the right thing for the country in terms of transition," Trump says of Obama.
In terms of America's foreign policy, Trump said he does not think the United States should be "a nation-builder. " And he noted "we have to solve that problem" regarding the crisis in Syria, which stems from a civil war and the Islamic State (ISIS).
“I would love to be the one who made peace with Israel and the Palestinians, that would be such a great achievement. "
The meeting ended shortly after 2 p.m. Fox News showed Trump walking into the lobby of the paper's headquarters, with what seemed like hundreds of staffers gathered to catch a glimpse of the incoming president.
Trump shook hands with some security guards, waved to the crowd, and exited down a long corridor. It was a stark contrast to his entrance shortly before 1 p.m., during which he bypassed the lobby and the people gathered and instead hitched a ride on the freight elevator, according to Times reporter Vivian Lee.
Trump went upstairs through the freight elevator, meaning he eluded the huge crowd waiting in the lobby
Trump met with television news executives and on-air personalities Monday at Trump Tower. One report claimed it was a "total disaster," with Trump berating executives from several networks.

Apple accused of intentionally slowing down Verizon's iPhone 7

Apple is deliberately throttling the iPhone 7's performance on Verizon's network so it matches the AT&T version, according to recent reports. The two versions of the handset have different modems inside, one of which is dramatically faster than the other. The difference here is more important than in other dual-sourced components. The Qualcomm chip outperforms its Intel rival considerably, offering 600Mbps download speeds. In contrast, Intel's offering provides 450Mbps. Both theoretical transfer rates are very high but Qualcomm's X12 has a clear edge overall. Apple supplied the Qualcomm-equipped iPhone 7 to Verizon while the Intel ones are being sold to AT&T. According to the spec sheet, handsets bought from Verizon should offer noticeably faster transfers under test conditions. In practice, this isn't happening, according to reports from Testing of the two models by Twin Prime revealed the Qualcomm modem is being throttled significantly. It still outperforms the Intel version but is being limited iPhone 7 modem performance - Qualcomm vs Intel vs Qualcomm Samsung Galaxy S7 [Image via Bloomberg / Twin Prime] "The data indicates that the iPhone 7 is not taking advantage of all of Verizon's network capabilities," said Gabriel Tavridis, head of product at Twin Prime to In reality, no mobile network user is ever going to see speeds anywhere near 450Mbps, even with optimum wireless conditions. The throttling won't "It would be difficult, for example, to explain to AT&T, which remains the U. S. carrier with the most iPhone subscribers, why Verizon is offering a superior product," Insinet analyst Jeff Kvaal commented to Apple has aimed to regulate performance to maintain consumers' perception of each phone being the same. It doesn't want customers to give different models individual reputations as this could lead to it losing its image of providing consistent, reliable performance. However, the move has already been criticised by some owners who believe they've bought devices which don't fulfil their potential. "Every iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus meets or exceeds all of Apple’s wireless performance standards, quality metrics, and reliability testing," Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller said to Apple's iPhone is famous for being universal – aside from colour and storage, every device is effectively identical. With the iPhone 7, Apple dual-sourced a critical component though. Some handsets have a wireless modem from Qualcomm while others come with one from Intel. The difference here is more important than in other dual-sourced components. The Qualcomm chip outperforms its Intel rival considerably, offering 600Mbps download speeds. In contrast, Intel's offering provides 450Mbps. Both theoretical transfer rates are very high but Qualcomm's X12 has a clear edge overall.

According to the spec sheet, handsets bought from Verizon should offer noticeably faster transfers under test conditions. In practice, this isn't happening, according to reports from Bloomberg and Recode on Friday. Apple appears to have deliberately limited the faster Qualcomm chip's top speed so it matches the performance of its lesser Intel rival. Testing of the two models by Twin Prime revealed the Qualcomm modem is being throttled significantly. It still outperforms the Intel version but is being limited from reaching its full potential. Compared to the Samsung Galaxy S7, powered by the same modem, it's clear that Apple has tweaked Verizon's iPhone 7 to reduce the performance discrepancies with the AT&T model. Additional testing by Cellular Insights presented the same results. "The data indicates that the iPhone 7 is not taking advantage of all of Verizon's network capabilities," said Gabriel Tavridis, head of product at Twin Prime to Bloomberg. "I doubt that Apple is throttling each bit on the Verizon iPhone, but it could have chosen to not enable certain features of the network chip. "In reality, no mobile network user is ever going to see speeds anywhere near 450Mbps, even with optimum wireless conditions. The throttling won't be noticed by customers during regular handset use. Its presence suggests Apple still needs every iPhone to operate identically, even with different, superior hardware, on the U. S. networks.

Health care stocks tumble as stock market hits records

While the major U. S. stock indexes hit all-time highs Tuesday , health care stocks traded lower on disappointing earnings and gave back some of a post-election relief rally that had lifted the sector.
"Medtronic certainly had a pretty tough quarter and [is] driving down medical devices" stocks, said Mike Bailey, director of research and chair of FBB Capital Partners, which has a "very small" position in the stock.
He attributed Tuesday's decline in health stocks broadly to a pullback after recent gains, and some uncertainty on the effect of President-elect Donald Trump's health care policies.
Medtronic shares plunged more than 8 percent after the company reported disappointing quarterly revenue and cut earnings guidance for the fiscal year ending April 2017. The stock was the second-worst performer in the S&P 500 health care sector, followed by Endo International, a specialty pharmaceutical company.
Patterson Companies was the worst performer in the S&P 500 health care sector, shedding more than 16 percent on Tuesday.
The stock hit its lowest since April 2013 after reporting fiscal second quarter earnings per share that missed expectations, and fiscal year non-GAAP earnings in a range of $2.25 to $2.35 per diluted share, well below forecasts of $2.64 a share.
The Dow Jones industrial average, S&P 500, Nasdaq composite and Russell 2000 traded higher at record levels for a second day in a row , with telecoms climbing 2 percent to lead eight S&P 500 sectors higher.
The S&P 500 health care sector briefly fell 2 percent and was the worst performing S&P 500 sector on Tuesday.
Health care had been one of the better performing sectors since the election, up more than 2 percent between Election Day and Monday's close, as Trump's win eased concerns about heavy scrutiny on drug price controls.
Separately on Tuesday, CFRA Research on Tuesday lowered its rating on the sector to "marketweight" from "overweight. "
"We expect investors to gravitate toward more cyclical sectors as a result of a projected increase in defense and infrastructure spending under the new Republican administration," Sam Stovall, chief investment officer at CFRA Research, said in a note.

Elon Musk claims Tesla’s solar roof will be competitive even without the energy it produces

One of the unanswered questions after Tesla CEO Elon Musk unveiled the company's solar roof tiles in October was: How much will they cost?
All Musk said was that they would be competitive with comparable roofing tiles, once the value of the electricity they generate is taken into account. That left the question pretty open, since the value of that electricity itself will vary widely from place to place.
This week, Musk made a more boastful claim .
"It's looking quite promising that a solar roof actually costs less than normal roof," he said, "before you even take the value of electricity into account. "
Tesla is reducing costs, he says, by squeezing inefficiencies out of the "incredibly inefficient" roofing supply chain. Tesla's tiles weigh less than conventional tiles and are made of tempered glass, so they are much more resistant to damage and can be packed more tightly. Those savings offset the slightly higher upfront costs of materials and manufacturing.
Now, Musk's assertion is still fairly vague — and perhaps a bit misleading. When he says "normal roof," he is almost certainly talking about slate, clay, or terra cotta roofing tiles, which are at the high end of the market and can cost up to 20 times as much as the dirt-cheap asphalt shingles that still adorn most American homes. Competing with asphalt shingles would be a different thing entirely.
Still, it's a pretty striking claim.
For solar on buildings, shifting from why? to why not?
There's no telling if Musk's boast will prove out in practice. But say it does.
The question facing consumers, at least in that corner of the market, will have flipped. It will no longer be, do you want to pay extra up front and make it back by generating electricity? It will be, do you want a longer-lasting, nicer looking product, for less money? "And by the way," Musk adds, "[it] generates electricity? "
The question for high-end consumers flips from, why solar? to, why not? That flip is coming to more building markets soon, whether or not Tesla achieves it in this particular case.
Tesla wants to offer a suite of electricity products and services ranging from generation to storage to transportation — to become, in the words of Tesla CTO JB Straubel, a "one-stop sustainable lifestyle company. " In all these market segments, the strategy is roughly the same: Break in on the upper end, with wealthier consumers first, and then scale up and drive costs down until there's a product for the middle-income consumer and (one day) a product for the masses.
As solar gets cheaper and smaller , it will become a more routine part of the products and practices of the building trades, integrated into roofs and windows by default. Storage will be integrated into garages and basements by default. Homes will be built with energy management systems to economize the storage and use of self-generated power, by default.
It will start on the high end, but if things work out right, if Tesla can spark the growth of competitive markets around these kinds of products, it will move down the income scale and eventually become a normal part of building.
Or so we'd all better hope.

US existing home sales hit more than 9.5-year high

U. S. home resales rose in October to their highest level in more than 9-1/2 years amid pent-up demand, offering more evidence of a pickup in economic growth in the fourth quarter, but a recent surge in mortgage rates could slow housing market activity.
The National Association of Realtors said on Tuesday existing home sales increased 2.0 percent to an annual rate of 5.6 million units last month, the highest level since February 2007. September's sales pace was revised up to 5.49 million units from the previously reported 5.47 million units.
Economists polled by Reuters had forecast sales slipping 0.5 percent to a 5.43 million-unit pace in October. Sales were up 5.9 percent from a year ago.
The report came on the heels of data last week showing a surge in housing starts. It also added to strong reports on retail sales and the labor market as well as manufacturing surveys in suggesting that the economy continued to gain speed early in the fourth quarter.
Despite last month's surprise rise, existing home sales remain constrained by a persistent shortage of properties available for sale. Sales could slow marginally early next year following a run-up in mortgage rates in the wake of this month's election of Republican candidate Donald Trump as the next president.
Trump's surprise victory has led to a surge in U. S. government bond yields amid investor concerns that the business mogul's expansionary fiscal policy agenda could fan inflation.
Mortgage rates closely track movements in U. S. Treasury yields. Since the Nov. 8 presidential election, the fixed 30-year mortgage rate has increased nearly 40 basis points to average 3.94 percent, according to data from mortgage finance firm Freddie Mac.

Tim Allen bashes Hollywood stars who criticized Donald Trump

Comedian Tim Allen has slammed Hollywood stars for bullying Donald Trump's supporters - after criticizing the president-elect for doing just that. He spoke on Megyn Kelly's The Kelly File Monday night, insisting he didn't want to defend the president-elect, but saying he didn't like anyone telling him what to do, or how to think. Allen plays a conservative in 'Last Man Standing', but told Kelly the show was written by liberals. He later compared Trump to a new talent comedian with 'terrible' comedy timing. 'What I find odd in Hollywood is that they didn't like Trump because he was a bully,' Allen told Kelly. 'But if you had any kind of inkling that you were for Trump, you got bullied for doing that. And it gets a little bit hypocritical to me.' Scroll down for video Kelly had begun the discussion by asking Allen about Gigi Hadid's impression of Melania Trump Sunday night at the American Music Awards, which many branded as racist. 'Gigi Hadid mocking our next first lady... Appropriate or not?' Kelly asked. 'I don't think it's appropriate in that venue,' Allen responded, clarifying that he was not a 'spokesman for Hollywood', but a comedian. Allen has said in the past that his political opinions are somewhere in the center right - although he finds himself leaning towards both the left and right. The conversation moved onto the 'Hollywood conservative underground', which according to Kelly is composed of dozens of secretly right-leaning actors who don't want to out themselves as conservatives for fear of backlash. Allen insisted that he didn't want to defend Trump, who 'said stupid stuff' - but valued above all his liberty to think and act as he pleases. 'I'm an anarchist. I don't like anybody telling me what to do, period,' he said. Allen also compared Trump to a 'new talent comedian'. 'These are guys that have great material that have very bad comedy timing,' he said. 'And he's got terrible timing.'

This airport has America’s best bathroom

The last time bathroom stalls at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport made headlines was 2007 and the story was about a senator and a sex sting.
Now there’s far more positive news about MSP’s loos.
The first batch of updated restrooms at MSP are the 2016 winners in the 15th annual America’s Best Restroom Contest.
Hosted by Cintas, a Cincinnati-based company that cleans and provides supplies for public restrooms, this year’s best restroom contest asked the public to vote on a set of 10 finalists that pitted MSP’s lavs against the likes of a Doctor Who -themed Tardis bathroom at a bar in Brooklyn, N. Y., a bookstore in St. Louis where the bathrooms are papered in classic books, and the restrooms at Coca-Cola Park in Allentown, Pa., (home of the AAA Lehigh Valley IronPigs) which feature a hands-free, motion-control urinal gaming system.
The restrooms MSP entered in the contest are part of a terminal-wide restroom renovation plan that started in 2009 and will continue through 2025 and encompasses more than 100 sets of public restrooms throughout the airport.
“The restroom is often the first place visited on arrival and the last stop for departing passengers, leaving a lingering impression of their destination,” said Alan Howell, Senior Airport Architect, Airport Development Department, Metropolitan Airports Commission. “We are thrilled to be honored with this award for our efforts to improve the aesthetics of our restrooms and make the customer experience memorable.”
In addition to overhauling each restroom to include features such as stalls that have out-swinging doors and niches for rolling luggage, baby changing stations with sinks and tower dispensers, and shallow trough sinks that minimize splashing and give easier access to touchless faucets and soap dispensers, the MSP restroom renovation project is creating easy-to-identify restroom zones.
Each zone has waiting areas that allow travel companions to wait away from passing traffic, plus amenities such as flight information boards, AEDs and others emergency devices, water-bottle refill stations and curated art display cases.
Mosaic art with a Minnesota theme marks the entrance to each restroom, with each set created by a different regional artist.
“Most airports are pretty standard when it comes to their restrooms, but the art in MSP’s restrooms caught our attention when we were choosing finalists. It showed they are supporting local artists.” said Jillian Bauer, assistant marketing manager for Cintas.
“The experience is even better than the photos,” said Howell, who explained that in developing a plan for 100 sets of new restrooms, the airport also created a prototype that helped the Transportation Research Board create the first guidebook for airport terminal restroom design.
“Now we’re getting calls from other airports, including JFK, Seattle, San Diego, San Francisco, Miami and other airports who want to know what we’re doing and how,” said Howell.
This is not the first time airport thrones have been in the running for the Best Restroom Contest crown.
Tampa International Airport’s renovated restrooms were among the finalists in 2013, losing out to the Varsity Theater in Minneapolis.
“Our restrooms have flattering lighting and gorgeous floral and plant artwork, but most important of all, they are very clean,” said Emily Nipps, Tampa International Airport spokeswoman.
“We take a lot of pride in restroom ambiance and cleanliness, as so many passengers take time to notice this when they travel through Tampa International Airport,” said Nipps. “It’s an area where folks tend to expect less stellar experiences so I think it’s a surprise to them when they walk into a public restroom that is not only functional and spacious, but has modern fixtures and artwork.”
And back in the 2005, the loos at Fort Smith Regional Airport in Arkansas took first prize.
According to the airport’s entry in the Cintas restroom Hall of Fame, the always-clean airport bathrooms at FSM Airport exude Southern hospitality, and have automated toilets and sinks, dried flower arrangements and comfortable seating, “both inside and outside the stalls.”
“We still maintain our restrooms in the exact same way,” said Michael Griffin, FSM’s director of operations. “There are wingback chairs in the ladies room and rotating plastic toilet seat covers for all users.
And, while one of FSM Airport’s award plaques has disappeared (pried off the wall, according to Griffin), there are still newspaper clippings posted and people are still talking about the award.
“In fact, we had an American airlines flight that had a diversion into our airport,” said Griffin, “And the flight crew made a point to come in to see what all the restroom talk was about.”
For those curious about the status of the restroom at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport that was at the center of the 2007 sex sting involving Senator Larry Craig, airport spokesman Patrick Hogan informs us that as part of the restroom improvement program, “that restroom has been demolished and replaced by new restroom facilities at either end of the mall.”
And maybe we’ll see the restrooms at Ohio’s John Glenn Columbus International Airport on the list of finalists for America’s Best Restroom in 2017. The airport just completed a three-year, $80 million terminal modernization project that included a major renovation of the restrooms.
“We’ve received praise from passengers via reviews on social media, as well in the dozen or so selfies we find from passengers each week who check in at CMH via their Instagram accounts,” said Kevin Pack, the airport’s digital media and communication specialist. "We didn’t ask for the selfies, people must just love the full-length mirrors, the lighting or something.”

When asked if she watches repeats of the show, she said: 'I can’t help it. First I try and remember which episode it is, I even say: "I don’t remember that" at first, and you just get sucked into the nostalgia of it.' Jennifer's appearance on The One Show caused controversy when she accidentally spoke about sex toys in front of an audience of disabled children. The pre-watershed gaffe stunned viewers with many swarming Twitter to note that she had let slip the saucy joke in front of her young audience. Her London appearance came as her husband Brad Pitt was at the Allied premiere just 1.2 miles away in Leicester Square while Jennifer appeared in Marylebone.

Formerly conjoined 14-month-old twins see each other for first time

NEW YORK — The white dressing covering Jadon’s head is gently unwrapped, revealing a perfectly shaped head and a hairline with a natural curl.
It’s the first time his parents have seen him without his bandages in four weeks. That’s when he and his twin brother, Anias, born conjoined at the head, were separated in a 27-hour surgery at the Children’s Hospital at Montifiore Medical Center in the Bronx.
Mother Nicole McDonald stands at his bedside in awe. Although new bandages will be put on, the sight is breathtaking. “It’s the most amazing thing. I just can’t even believe it,” she says. “And look at his little hair. On top, it’s growing in!”
His father, Christian McDonald, leans in. “Hey there, my man,” he says, “You sure are handsome. Look at you. You look like a perfect little boy.”
Jadon stares up at them, waving his right hand. He then taps the top of his head.
“How does it feel to be your own little boy?” Dad asks. Mom mimics her son, touching her own head and, imagining what he’s thinking, asks, “Where’s my brother?”
Anias rests in his bed across the room, near a window. His head remains wrapped. “You’ve been having a tougher go of it, but you’re going to get through it,” Dad tells him.
The boys, now 14 months old, are set to move to rehab shortly after Thanksgiving, about six weeks after the surgery to separate them. The world’s previous record for recovery from such an operation, known as craniopagus surgery, was eight weeks. Many separated twins remain hospitalized for months.
Lead surgeon Dr. James Goodrich is checking on the twins in their 10th floor room on a rainy, unseasonably warm November afternoon. He’s considered the leading expert in the world on twins conjoined at the head, and this was his seventh craniopagus operation. But it was also his most complicated: the boys’ brains so intertwined, Goodrich considered stopping hours into the operation.
“Historically, this will be the fastest (recovery),” Goodrich says at Jadon’s bedside.
“I didn’t know that,” Nicole responds. “So they were maybe your hardest set, but the fastest ones out of the hospital.”
Goodrich nods. He attributes their remarkable recovery to one thing: “Just good kids.”
The surgeon marvels at how well Jadon and Anias are doing. “I’m the least complaining person in this room,” he says. “When they’re ahead of schedule, it makes everyone happy.”
Jadon is a bundle of energy — “a crazy wild man,” in his mother’s words. He chews on wires. He reaches for faces. He locks onto a gaze and smiles. He tugs at the dressing when it’s covering his head. It seems he can hardly be confined to his bed.
With twins joined at the head, Goodrich explains, there’s always a dominant child where one child does double the work, that child’s heart and lungs working overtime to keep both boys alive. In this case, Anias is the non-dominant child who has struggled with breathing and eating, even prior to the surgery. But Anias is progressing well, the doctors say, getting stronger since the surgery.
He often shrinks when people in scrubs approach, as if fearful he might have to undergo another surgery. Yet this day, Anias lets loose a smile as those in scrubs come near. “I like that he’s starting to smile at other people,” Nicole says. “He’s starting to trust people.”
He blinks his long lashes, stares up and tracks his mom with his deep brown eyes. He doesn’t have the same range of motions as Jadon, but the surgical staff believes he will get there.
The boys’ next stop will be a nearby rehabilitation center where they will undergo months of therapy. They’ve never crawled or lifted their heads like typical 1-year-olds — let alone attempted to walk.
The surgery sets them back to infancy, Goodrich says, and it will take time for them to reach those milestones. Their mother, a pediatric physical therapist, has helped prepare them well for this next phase, Goodrich says.
Goodrich believes Jadon is ready for rehab now, but it’s more beneficial for him to stay in the same room with his brother. “Separating the two,” he says with a tinge of irony, “is probably not a good idea at this point.”
A photograph captures the moment when the two boys saw each other for the first time in the hospital. They both have quizzical yet awe-inspiring looks on their faces, as if to say, “How’s it going over there?”
Their room is situated in a corner, with windows facing Manhattan’s majestic skyline. The walls are a pale blue, and the boys’ names hang above their beds. A cutout of a cartoon lion designates Anias; a giraffe watches over Jadon.
A poem attached to Jadon’s monitor reads:
I’m your twin You’re my twin We stick together through thick and thin No matter what I do I’m always stuck with you.
In this same room, the night before surgery, Jadon held a book in front of his face, and Anias reached up to tug on it. Jadon snatched it away and shoved at his brother’s hands. And that’s how the boys interacted: confined to the same bed at all times. Their parents could rarely pick them up or give one child their full attention. They had to stand over the boys, glancing back at forth at the two of them.
To see the boys now is stunning. Their cognitive functions are remarkable, considering the traumatic surgery they underwent. Little miracles, Nicole calls them.
Yet the past weeks have been grueling, for the boys and for their parents.
Jadon struggled with infections, fevers and breathing. The left side of his body was initially paralyzed, but he has since begun moving it. He had one seizure that seemed to come out of nowhere two weeks ago.
Both boys struggled with infections beneath their scalps, resulting in several trips to the operating room to clean out the wounds.
For Anias, doctors had to remove the skull cap they’d fashioned out of extra bone from the boys’ conjoined skull. For now, his scalp is the only thing covering the top of his head. Recent skin grafts to help cover his scalp have left him in excruciating pain, although pain medication has helped to ease it.
Lead plastic surgeon Dr. Oren Tepper says Anias will eventually have to undergo more surgery to try to fashion a new skull cap out of bone from his hip or rib. But that is years down the road. He can survive fine as he is but will wear a protective helmet as a safety precaution, possibly for as long as seven years until the surgery. Both boys will be outfitted with helmets before going into rehab.
“It hasn’t been perfect, but I think perfection in this case was never really an option,” Tepper says.
For now, he says, both boys are “way ahead of schedule. They’re really doing a lot better than I hoped. “The whole world has gotten behind these kids.”
Anias also has suffered from multiple seizures, which are kept in check with medication. Goodrich says that’s not uncommon after craniopagus surgery. “You can’t cut the brain, disrupt it, and not have some consequences,” he says.
The non-dominant child in these cases, he adds, “just takes longer” to recover.
Tepper says the thing that surprises him the most is that Anias, despite his setbacks, has gotten stronger since the surgery. “In a way, kind of staying conjoined and attached was inhibiting him and not letting his body recover and do the things he was capable of doing.
“But when they got separated,” Tepper says, “it was time for him to fly on his own — and he’s doing just that.”
Goodrich says he’s most inspired by Jadon’s spontaneity, how he tugs at stuff and reaches for people. “Nobody is forcing him. Nobody is telling him to do it. He’s very spontaneous, and that to me is the most encouraging.”
At Jadon’s bedside with Nicole, Goodrich recalls the most difficult moment of the surgery, when he considered stopping because the boys’ blood vessels were so intricately tied together.
“I was afraid by clamping those veins, if any one of them ruptured, that’s how you lose a child,” he says.
But he says a moment of opportunity arose — “a little hole to work through.” The doctor proceeded, making the correct move to separate the boys.
“(If we) made the wrong one, we wouldn’t be having this conversation,” he tells Nicole.
Again, Jadon smiles.

Cargo pilot strike in Ohio may delay Amazon, DHL shipping

Pilots for a cargo airline that carries packages for Amazon and DHL went on strike Tuesday, potentially causing delivery delays just as the holiday shopping season swings into high gear. The airline, ABX Air, said it would seek a court order to end the strike by about 250 pilots. The Teamsters union, which represents the pilots, said the strike had caused 75 flights to be canceled. ABX operates 35 daily flights for Amazon and 45 daily flights for DHL, according to the union. The pilots allege that ABX is understaffed and forces them to work on days off without giving them the compensatory time off that they are owed under their contract. The airline's president, John Starkovich, said the strike is illegal and that the dispute should be settled through arbitration. A spokesman for ABX parent company Air Transport Services Group Inc. said the company would not comment on the impact of the strike. A DHL spokeswoman said 'deliveries to portions of the Americas will be delayed today' because of the strike, and DHL is watching the situation. Amazon did not respond immediately to requests for comment. Between them, DHL and Amazon accounted for 65 per cent of Air Transport Service's revenue in the third quarter. Wilmington-based Air Transport Services earned $22 million in the first nine months of this year, down from $26.5 million in the same period of 2015. The company's labor costs have increased 30 per cent in that time, according to a regulatory filing. The company's shares fell 24 cents, or 1.4 per cent, to $16.44 on Tuesday while the broader markets closed higher. Air Transport shares have gained 86 per cent in the past 12 months.

Leicester beats Brugge 2-1, advances in Champions League

Champions League newcomer Leicester clinched its place in the knockout stages as guaranteed group winner by beating Club Brugge 2-1, with early goals by Shinji Okazaki and Riyad Mahrez doing the damage on Tuesday.
Okazaki steered the English champions ahead in the fifth minute before Mahrez converted a 30th-minute penalty after fellow winger Marc Albrighton was upended.
Leicester conceded for the first time in Group G when Jose Izquierdo fired home a rising shot in the 52nd, but was still able to celebrate qualification with a game to spare. Claudio Ranieri's team has 13 points, from four wins and a draw, and leads second-placed FC Porto by five points ahead of their meeting in Portugal in the final round of group games.
"It is more than we could ever imagine," Leicester captain Wes Morgan said. "For Leicester to be newcomers and finish group winners, it is an amazing achievement. "
Finishing top should give the Foxes an easier last-16 match — against a team that finishes second in its group — and therefore a better chance of extending its debut campaign in the Champions League to the quarterfinals.
"We're on another journey," Ranieri said. "I don't know where, but we're excited. "
The closest Leicester got to a European trip in recent years was crossing the Welsh border to play Swansea in the Premier League. Now they'll be mixing it with the elite of the continent in the latter stages of the world's most prestigious club competition.
It's a giddy rise for a team that wasn't even in England's top flight as recently as May 2014.
Leicester might be struggling in the Premier League this season, lying two points above the relegation zone after 12 games of a stuttering title defense, but these atmospheric European nights at King Power Stadium are more than making up for it. Ranieri's side has more Champions League wins (4) than Premier League wins (3) this season.
"Maybe we have been more concentrated on the Champions League," Ranieri said. "Now the group is won, important to come back in the Premier League. "
Brugge, bottom of the group with one goal and no points heading into the game, was no match early on for a vibrant home side that dominated right from the start and went in front through a clever finish from Okazaki.
Albrighton began the counterattack and Christian Fuchs continued it by racing down the left wing. The Austria defender crossed low for Okazaki to meet with a sidefooted shot at the near post.
Mahrez was given the opportunity to double the lead from the spot after Albrighton twisted and turned Dion Cools before being tripped by the right back. Mahrez's penalty was low and sent the goalkeeper the wrong way.
Izquierdo's goal, which came when he was set free down the right wing and outpaced Fuchs, lifted Brugge, and Leicester endured some shaky moments in the final 30 minutes when its passing and marking became sloppy.
But when the final whistle was blown, there was an explosion of joy as Leicester's fans chanted: "We're all going on a European tour. "
Ranieri has now reached the Champions League with five different teams. Only Carlo Ancelotti (six teams) has done so more.

AM Alert: California healthcare advocates rally against Trump

They backed Obamacare, and they’re not letting it go without a fight.
The federal healthcare overhaul could be one of the first casualties of President-Elect Donald Trump , who has joined the Republicans controlling Congress in vowing to dismantle the law. Since winning the presidency Trump has softened his stance somewhat, speaking favorably about popular provisions that prohibit insurers from turning away people with pre-existing conditions and allow people to stay on their parents’ plans until they turn 26.
Still, Trump’s election has California healthcare advocates on high alert , not to mention t he state’s new U. S. senator. California could forfeit billions of federal dollars that support Medi-Cal, the insurance program for poor Californians, and subsidize private insurance purchases. They’re worried about the fate of Medicare, a program that Speaker Paul Ryan , R-Wisconsin, said has “serious problems because of Obamacare” and is “going broke.”
A rally today in Los Angeles offers the latest example of a policy rift between California and Washington, D. C., with elected officials joining healthcare workers and patients for an event billed as a push to “protect our health care.” Among the expected speakers are Senate Health Committee chair Ed Hernandez, D-West Covina, Los Angeles County Health Agency Director Mitch Katz, and California Secretary of State Alex Padilla, whose public denunciations of Trump have become a recurring feature.
BY THE NUMBERS: 13.6 million is the number of Californians enrolled in Medi-Cal as of June 2016, the most recent data available, a net increase of about 800,000 from a year earlier and about double Medi-Cal enrollment a decade ago. The total includes almost 3.4 million people who became eligible for Medi-Cal under the state’s optional Obamacare expansion. The Legislative Analyst’s Office last week reported that Medi-Cal caseload should grow by about 100,000 annually through mid-2021 among families, children and people covered by ACA expansion. Enrollment among senior citizens and people with disabilities will grow by an estimated 50,000.

Dr Pepper buys Bai for $1.7B, ups low-calorie game

NEW YORK (AP) — Dr Pepper Snapple Group will pay $1.7 billion for Bai Brands, a fruity drink maker that counts pop star Justin Timberlake as an investor. It said Tuesday that Bai will help the company expand into the low-calorie beverage market. Bai markets its drinks as having 5 calories, antioxidants and no artificial sweeteners. Dr Pepper Snapple's brands include its namesake Dr Pepper soda, A&W root beer and Canada Dry ginger ale. Bai announced in October that Timberlake was an investor, but didn't provide financial details. The "SexyBack" singer said at the time that he was a fan of the drinks and would work on new flavors and marketing campaigns for the brand. Dr Pepper Snapple Group Inc., based in Plano, Texas, expects Bai to generate about $425 million in sales next year. The deal for the Hamilton, New Jersey, company is expected to close early next year.

Large section of Miami Beach cleared of Zika virus

MIAMI — Federal and state health officials announced Tuesday that the Zika virus is no longer being locally transmitted in a large section of Miami Beach.
Florida Gov. Rick Scott visited the barrier island to celebrate the announcement, which comes after a difficult summer where three different sections of South Florida were designated as Zika zones. That move prompted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to issue travel warnings to pregnant women over the mosquito-borne virus that can cause birth defects, creating major headaches for business owners and residents dependent on tourism.
On Tuesday, the Florida Department of Health and the CDC declared a three-mile section of Miami Beach was no longer experiencing local Zika transmission, meaning nobody has acquired the virus there in 45 days.
"I am proud to announce that three miles of the impacted area in Miami Beach have now been cleared of any ongoing active transmission of the Zika virus," he said.
Zika became a nightmare for Miami when the city earned the dubious distinction of the first in the U. S. to experience active transmission of the virus, which can cause devastating birth defects in babies born to women infected while pregnant. The virus, which originated in Brazil, has been detected in people in 49 U. S. states, but the vast majority contracted it through travel to Zika-infected areas.
South Florida is the first U. S. state where the virus spread locally by mosquitoes. A total of 236 people have contracted the virus in the region, mostly in three Miami neighborhoods.
"We understand this has been a difficult time for Miami Beach residents and tourists and thank local and state officials for their hard work to interrupt the spread of the virus in the area," CDC Director Tom Frieden said.
The response to the disease included intense mosquito control efforts, using handheld foggers and aerial spraying to kill the aedes aegypti mosquito that transmits the virus. Those efforts were successful in Wynwood, the artists' enclave that was the first neighborhood hit by Zika. Officials cleared that neighborhood in September after weeks of spraying and other prevention efforts.
Two Zika areas remain in South Florida. One is a section of northern Miami known as Little River, and the other is the southern tip of Miami Beach. Scott and Frieden both said they were happy with Tuesday's news, but urged residents and tourists alike to continue bracing themselves against the virus.
"People living in or visiting Miami-Dade County, including Miami Beach, particularly pregnant women, are still encouraged to continue to take steps to prevent mosquito bites and to follow guidelines for preventing sexual transmission," Frieden said. "We cannot let down our guard. "

Lacazette keeps Lyon's hopes alive in Champions League

Alexandre Lacazette kept alive Lyon's slim hopes of reaching the knockout stages of the Champions League on Tuesday after scoring the winner in a 1-0 victory at Dinamo Zagreb.
But Lyon will still travel to Sevilla needing to beat the Spanish side by two goals to reach the last 16 of Europe's top competition. Sevilla slumped to a 3-1 home defeat by Juventus in the night's other Group H match.
In a game with few chances for either side, Lacazette broke the deadlock in the 72nd minute with a neat finish in front of an empty net, steering home Rafael's low cross at the far post.
Jordan Ferri could have put Lyon in front earlier in the game when his shot from the edge of the area took a deflection off Lacazette and hit the crossbar. Fernandes also hit the woodwork for Zagreb.
Before its final match in Group H, Lyon sits in third place with seven points, three behind Sevilla. Dinamo is out of contention, without a point or a goal.

Champions League: PSG star Serge Aurier barred from UK

Paris Saint-Germain had wanted to include defender Serge Aurier in their squad to play Arsenal in Wednesday's game but he's had to stay behind in Paris.
Aurier was granted a UK entry visa in October, but British authorities have since reversed the decision because of the player's September conviction for assaulting a police officer.
The club argues it informed the UK government of the case from the outset, and says Aurier's pending appeal should render him innocent until proven guilty.
PSG says it only learned of the decision at 1400 CET Tuesday -- despite six days of negotiation to find a solution -- and calls the "extremely tardy response" a "flagrant lack of respect for the club. "
"The immigration rules clearly state that non-EU nationals who have received a custodial sentence of less than 12 months within the last five years will be refused on criminality grounds," the UK Home Office said in a statement.
"All applications are carefully considered on their individual merits, in line with the UK immigration rules and based on evidence provided by the applicant. "

PSG added in a statement: "In the face of this decision, albeit difficult to understand in respect to European law, Paris Saint-Germain, who had planned to travel to London with its strongest possible squad, invites its fans to be more united than ever, in support of their club. "
Aurier, 23, was given a two-month suspended jail sentence and fined 600 euros ($636) for elbowing a police officer after leaving a Paris nightclub in May.
He was also suspended by the club earlier this year for comments about the then-PSG coach Laurent Blanc.

Man identified in fatal Mid-City shooting, car theft: Coroner

The Orleans Parish Coroner's Office has identified a 30-year-old man shot and killed late Monday night (Nov. 21) in Mid-City. The man's car was also stolen during the shooting, New Orleans police said.
Kharen Chapman, 30, was identified as the victim of the fatal shooting at his home in 3200 block of Palmyra Street , near the intersection with South Jefferson Davis Parkway. According to an initial police report, an unknown male shooter kicked in the front door of Chapman's house and shot him.
Chapman ran outside and was found at the corner of Palmyra and South Jeff Davis, suffering from several gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead by EMS in the 300 block of South Jeff Davis.
Additionally, police said the victim's car was taken: a 2015 silver four-door Infiniti with Louisiana license plate WXG810.
Just after midnight, police had taped off the lake-bound side of Jefferson Davis from a point near the intersection with Banks Street to the intersection with Palmyra. Near the intersection of Jefferson Davis and Banks, a small crowd of family and friends of the victim gathered near the crime scene tape. A woman could be heard sobbing and retching as others tried to comfort her.
"No! No! This is not how it was supposed to go! " a woman wailed before walking a few steps from the scene, screaming in grief.

8 hurt in test-drive car crash at Los Angeles Auto Show

A man test-driving a car at the Los Angeles Auto Show plowed onto a sidewalk and hit a planter on Monday, sending concrete shards spraying and injuring at least a half-dozen people, authorities said.
Paramedics evaluated eight people and took six people, including the driver, to hospitals with minor to moderate injuries, Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey said.
However, police Lt. Chris Ramirez said the injured included five pedestrians, the 24-year-old driver and his passenger.
None of the injuries were life-threatening and it was unclear whether any of the pedestrians actually were struck by the car, authorities said.
The crash took place outside the Los Angeles Convention Center shortly before 1:15 p.m.
An orange-red Fiat 500e with a decal that said "Drive today! At the auto show" jumped the curb when the driver lost control, police said. Its windshield was cracked and the hood damaged.
The driver was possibly unlicensed, Sgt. Jack Richter told the Los Angeles Times (

Oh deer! Hunter’s highway prank goes viral

GRAND HAVEN, Mich. – As Jeremy Roomsburg jetted down I-96 on his way back from a high school football game in Michigan on Saturday, he had to do a double take.
After all, it’s not often you see a deer cruising down a major highway .
“We were all stunned and were like, ‘did we really just see that?’” said Roomsburg over the phone with FOX 17. “We had to slow down and actually drive past the guy again to get the video.”
First, the deer wasn’t actually driving. It was a buck Mike Huntoon and his hunting buddies had bagged during an outing that week at Camp Preach No More in the Upper Peninsula. But the video Jeremy shot has garnered thousands of likes and shares, and millions of views in the course of just a few days.
The prank was the result of a simple lack of space. While Huntoon and his group were packing up for the ten hour drive back to Grand Haven, they realized they may not have room for a deer Huntoon’s son had caught – one of five they bagged that week.
“We thought, let’s just have a little fun with it,” said Huntoon, who admitted he deliberately disobeyed his wife’s request to not put deer in the four-wheeler. “We have to get the deer home, let’s see if we can create a little humor…and apparently it worked.”
Better than Huntoon or Roomsburg could have ever guessed. As of the publishing of this story, the video has received over 15,000 likes, over 150,000 shares, and has attracted the eyes of 6 million Facebook users.
