They are keeping them under observation until summer 2018, when the animals will be released into the full 460-square-mile (1,189-square-kilometer) reintroduction zone after the females calve again next spring. Bison herds of up to 30 million animals once migrated freely across North America. The shaggy, hump-shouldered animals, also widely known as buffalo, were nearly hunted to extinction in the late 19th century. Rangers estimate that bison have not grazed in Banff National Park since before it was established in 1885.

Virtual reality as we know it today didn't exist in the 19th century, but what if it did? What if, alongside the monocles, pocket watches, and snuffboxes of proper gentlemen of the time, there existed, somehow, a fancy pants VR headset. You may officially turn your imagination off, because we found those VR goggles, and they are gloriously impractical yet compelling in their own hipster-using-a-vacuum-tube-phonograph way.

The reality is that we came into the bailouts and the G7 levered up. We did the bailouts and then we had the emerging markets lever up. But now they’re finished levering up. So everybody is all levered up! There is a way out of this by switching to an equity model instead of a debt model. But when you’re trying to run everything with fake intel, fake news … well, a harvesting machine needs a new way to dig and a digital currency is that new way. But you’ve got to bring all those countries into the tent. Minute marker 25:00 The guys from Bitcoin drive me nuts because they think can make people free. But I say, No, you’re prototyping Mr. Global’s plan. Digital Cash and Slavery 2.0 Ms. Fitts then launches into a great discussion about the true motivation for ending slavery in the 19th century. It had nearly nothing to do with some sudden white awakening of its immorality.

"I don't think he even tries anymore. I think he just signs executive actions," Trump said of then-President Obama in 2015. Obama signed 276 executive orders during his presidency, the fewest by any two-term president in the modern era. That is an average of fewer than 35 a year, less than any other president since Grover Cleveland in the 19th century. Presidential historian Max Skidmore of the University of Missouri-Kansas City says executive orders are a time honored way of accomplishing politically unpopular goals. Skidmore, who has written books about presidential powers, points to President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, signed in 1863 at the height of the Civil War, or President Harry Truman’s 1948 order desegregating the military. “When Truman desegregated the military, there was no way on earth Congress would have approved,” Skidmore told VOA.
