Our terrible drug epidemic will slow down and ultimately, stop. And our neglected inner cities will see a rebirth of hope, safety, and opportunity. Above all else, we will keep our promises to the American people. It's been a little over a month since my inauguration, and I want to take this moment to update the Nation on the progress I've made in keeping those promises. Since my election, Ford, Fiat-Chrysler, General Motors, Sprint, Softbank, Lockheed, Intel, Walmart, and many others, have announced that they will invest billions of dollars in the United States and will create tens of thousands of new American jobs. The stock market has gained almost three trillion dollars in value since the election on November 8th, a record. We've saved taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars by bringing down the price of the fantastic new F-35 jet fighter, and will be saving billions more dollars on contracts all across our Government.

The boycott against Target over its bathroom policy is costing the retailer more than anybody expected, as a record share price plunge and weak sales drive the big-box retailer to the brink of financial collapse. In April last year after Target announced that it would welcome transgender customers to use any bathroom or fitting room that matched their gender identity. Since then a determined grassroots boycott campaign has dug its heels in, and the company is having trouble hiding the financial damage. Target's already disappointing stock price plunged a further 13 percent in early trading on Tuesday, putting the embattled retailer on pace for its worst day in almost twenty years and dragging the company dangerously close to the financial abyss. Target also reported sales and earnings that missed Wall Street's expectations, in what was a devastating holiday quarter for the big-box retailer.

After 13 years of development and refinement, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner has officially passed the 767 in sales. In a blog post written by Boeing's vice president of marketing Randy Tinseth, the company announced that the 787 airframe is now one of its best-selling wide-body aircraft. Tinseth noted that 767 airframes — including the passenger, freighter and KC-46A refueling tanker variants — have a combined total of 1,204 sales since the line's introduction nearly 39 years ago, with 1,096 built through December 2016. In a fraction of that time, the 787 Dreamliner has logged 1,207 sales, with 512 completed aircraft built through January 2017. The Dreamliner reached this milestone despite a rocky start when it was first introduced in 2011 with All Nippon Airways (ANA). After a number of battery failures, the plane was grounded by the Federal Aviation Administration in 2013 until a solution could be found.

We're glad it has. It's a fantastic horror film set in Tehran in the '80s, focusing on a mother and daughter seemingly terrorised by otherworldly beings in an apartment block. The dread in this film is slow release but palpable, making it a terrific, scary watch. Given Evil Dead II is a quasi sequel/remake of the original Evil Dead, eyebrows were raised when another remake was announced. Thankfully, the movie is actually decent. Director Fede Alvarez plays the movie straight, piling on the gore and the tension, making for some terrifying moments. It feels like Evil Dead too, thanks to both Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi coming on board as producers. This ultra low budget movie comes from the Duplass Brothers and is one of the most inventive chillers in years. The plot is slight, it focuses on a man who answers a Craiglist ad to film what he thinks is a video for the persons unborn son.

(REPORT) While military policy wasnt heavily focused on in President Trump’s first address to Congress, an early and quick emphasis was placed on the recently announced plan to increase military spending by 9%, in particular emphasizing that this meant the formal end of sequestration, which led to loud applause. Military sequestration was meant to cap the rate of military spending increases into the future, and initially went into effect in 2013, leading to predictions of doom from top military leaders virtually from the moment it was announced. In practice, the sequestration never really happened, with every annual military budget finding some way or another to circumvent it . Despite this, hawks regularly referred to the sequestration as though it was happening, and lamented insufficiently huge military budgets. It was in this way that the myth of sequestration remained enough of a bogeyman that Trump could get big applause for killing it once and for all, and the fact that it doesnt require him to do anything different makes it that much easier.
