Mayweather Defeats McGregor In The 10th Round

by Jay Cool on Aug 27, 2017

Floyd Mayweather Jr. picked up the 50th win of his illustrious career, defeating Conor McGregor by 10th-round TKO on Saturday night in Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena. With the victory, Mayweather surpasses Rocky Marciano, who retired in 1956 with a 49-0 record. McGregor more than held his own in what was his first professional boxing fight, but the gulf between him and Mayweather grew the longer the fight went on. After the bout reached the halfway point, McGregor began looking visibly fatigued and Mayweather sensed an opening. He showed a level of aggression rarely seen in his previous 49 victories. According to SHO Stats, Mayweather had landed 132 punches compared to 80 for McGregor entering the 10th round. In the 10th round, Mayweather really went on the offensive, and McGregor had no answer for the barrage. After Mayweather landed a series of blows without reply from McGregor, referee Robert Byrd called for the bell. Mayweather told Showtime Sports' Jim Gray he had ... Continue reading →

Trump rages at leaks. But they could be our only hope for getting at the truth.

The New York Times has published a draft of an “alarming” government report on climate change, reporting that scientists involved are concerned the Trump administration might try to change or suppress it. The Times reports that the draft concludes that human activity is the primary cause of climate change and that Americans are already feeling its effects, as “the number and severity of cool nights have decreased since the 1960s, while the frequency and severity of warm days have increased.” Continue reading →

Jeff Sessions can try to stop affirmative action, but he’ll fail. Here’s why.

Jeff Sessions can try to stop affirmative action, but he’ll fail. Here’s why.

by Administrator on Aug 7, 2017

Hinting at a new legal battle, the Trump administration is reportedly directing the Justice Department’s civil rights division to investigate and sue universities over affirmative-action admissions policies deemed to discriminate on racial grounds — “intentional race-based discrimination,” as an internal department memo put it. But as long as the current law remains, the Justice Department faces an uphill battle. The department hopes to allege that by factoring race into college admissions decisions, universities are violating the civil rights of white and Asian applicants who are denied admission. But their case will be incredibly difficult to make. Affirmative action in college admissions uses race in quiet and indirect ways — treating race as one of several factors in a holistic review of applicants instead of the “predominant factor” — making claims of direct discrimination against individual applicants ...

Divorce Effect on Kids!

Divorce Effect on Kids!

by Jay Cool on Aug 3, 2017

One of the most touching and traumatic period a child can undergo is to witness the divorce of his parents in front of his eyes. It is a matter that is so deep and debatable that none can completely assure me of its positive sides. Love may diminish due to a number of reasons and its better to move the kids away from a hostile and loveless atmosphere to a healthy environment. Child custody is another factor which gains importance during such times and its a very sensitive issue when parents decide to split up. It is at this time that special care and emotional guidance needs to be given to the children to prevent them from entering into a shell. Kids are good at bottling up their emotions at such times and the parents too are too messed up in their own personal battles to take care of their kids. This leads to behavioral problems later on or depression. While marriages are made in heaven holds true for some couples, but sometimes circumstances take a different turn and the once ...

Why Should I Buy a 2-in-1 Laptop?

Why Should I Buy a 2-in-1 Laptop?

by Jay Cool on Aug 3, 2017

A recent research conducted by The Wall Street Journal stated that ‘Crossover SUVs’ is the only car segment that has shown exponential growth over the years. The reason is pretty straightforward – consumers want more versatile, multi-function vehicles to make their lives simpler. Now, why shouldn’t people think the same when it comes to laptops? Over the course of history, the most common and best-selling laptops have always been the traditional ones, which have a screen on the top and a keyboard on the bottom, with no option of any flexibility in between. However, in recent years, 2-in-1s have been making a steady ingress into the global laptop market. With over four generations of ‘Microsoft Surface’ hybrids and more than a dozen ‘Lenovo Yoga’ hybrids, consumers are slowly waking up to the benefits of a 2-in-1 laptop as compared to a traditional one. So, here are some reasons why your next laptop should be a 2-in-1: ... Continue reading →

Special counsel Robert Mueller impanels grand jury as Russia investigation intensifies, reports say

Special counsel Robert Mueller impanels grand jury as Russia investigation intensifies, reports say

by Jay Cool on Aug 3, 2017

WASHINGTON — Special counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly impaneled a grand jury, a sign the federal investigation into Russia's interference in the presidential election is intensifying and could go on for many months or years.  The move would give Mueller, a former FBI director, enormous power to subpoena documents and compel witnesses to testify under oath. Mueller has been investigating possible collusion between Trump associates and Russians who sought to influence the election by hacking Democrats. The probe's expansion is also virtually sure to incense President Trump, who is already furious with the Russia investigation he calls a "witch hunt."  The Wall Street Journal, which broke the story Thursday, reported that the grand jury was based in Washington and began working in recent weeks. The grand jury has issued subpoenas relating to the controversial June 2016 meeting between the president's son, Donald Trump Jr. ...

New White House chief of staff John Kelly recently broke with Trump on Russia election hacking

New White House chief of staff John Kelly recently broke with Trump on Russia election hacking

by Administrator on Jul 29, 2017

WASHINGTON – Even as President Trump continues to equivocate on Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election, his new chief of staff as recently as last week took a strong public stand affirming the U.S. intelligence community's conclusion that the Kremlin tried to influence the election in favor of Trump.  Trump announced Friday he is replacing his chief of staff, Reince Priebus, with retired Marine Corps general John Kelly, his Homeland Security secretary. But it's unclear whether the two will see eye to eye on one of the major issues dogging Trump's White House.  Last week, at the Aspen Security Forum, Kelly was among several top national security officials who backed the government's conclusion that Russia carried out a campaign of cyberattacks and fake news to influence the election in favor of Trump. Kelly joined CIA Director Mike Pompeo, White House Homeland Security and Counter-terrorism adviser Tom ... Continue reading →
