Thats the dark side of American ingenuity, and neither Hancock nor Keaton flinches from it. The Founder coasts breezily on a kind of seductive, sinister energy: What will Ray do next, as he transforms himself from weary road warrior to exuberant world beater? We watch in mild, unsurprised horror as he exchanges his straightforward, loyal first wife Ethel (Laura Dern) for blond dazzler Joan (played with shrewd, kitty-cat charm by Linda Cardellini) and boosts profits by removing milk from his restaurants milk shakes altogether, among other innovations. The Founder is so entertaining, it scans like a tongue-in-cheek satire. But processing it is a little like taking a watch apartsuddenly, you get a sense of how complicated the worlds inner workings are, even today. Its all there in Keatons watchful, calculating eyes. The world has changed a lot in 60 years. But the art of the deal hasnt.

Apple CEO Tim Cook sold 30,000 shares of Apple stock this week, valued at 3.6 million based on the company's stock price of 120 at the time of the transactions, according to a U.S. Securities and Exchanges Commission disclosure . The shares were sold as scheduled pursuant to Cook's predetermined trading plan. Cook retains 1,009,809 company shares worth over 121 million based on Apple's current stock price following the sale. A recent SEC filing revealed Cook was paid 8.7 million in 2016, which is 1.5 million less than he was paid in 2015 . The decrease stems from Apple failing to meet its own target performance goals for both net sales and operating income in 2016, resulting in senior executives receiving only 89.5% of their cash incentives. However, upon reaching his fifth anniversary as Apple CEO last year, Cook cashed in nearly 137 million in previously-awarded stock bonuses tied to both his tenure and Apple's performance under his leadership.

m. (ET) Full Schedule: AusOpen.com Murray Advances Murray has been the dominant force in men's tennis since midway through 2016, and he was ruthless against Querrey as he booked his spot in the fourth round. The opening exchanges of the clash on Hisense Arena were tight, and in the eighth game of the match, 29-year-old Murray was forced to save a break point. He then claimed a break of his own in the next game, taking the advantage with a well-placed lob, and eventually saw out the set. Two breaks in the second set made it easy work for the Scot to take a 2-0 advantage, and despite a brief fightback from Querrey in the third, Murray was too good in the end. In his second-round match against Andrey Rublev, Murray had a worrying moment when he seemed to go over on his ankle, but he said after Friday's clash that he was back to full fitness, per the Australian Open: The top seed will now face Germany's Mischa Zverev in the next round as he continues his bid to win a fourth career Grand Slam.

Washington broke officials ties with Taiwan in 1979 in favor of the larger, fast-growing China. A boost in informal ties would probably bring arms sales, military exchanges and a boost in senior-level visitors to Taiwan, experts say. “I dont really think [of] President-elect Trump the same as President Trump,” said Raymond Wu, managing director of e-telligence, a Taipei political risk consultancy, referring to harsh remarks toward China since the Nov. 8 U.S. elections. “I think the primary objective is still the preservation of American interests, and many of the foreign policy positions and conducts of the past have proved to be effective, for example on the one-China policy, so I dont really believe there will be a dramatic departure from some of the long-standing U.S. positions on these very sensitive issues,” Wu said. China discourages its more than 170 diplomatic allies from treating Taiwan as a state, and just 21 countries officially recognize it.

Or perhaps Spicer just meant the "diversity" of both millionaires and billionaires. Any notion that the private healthcare market, which has long prioritized its profiteering above any guarantees of access, cost, or quality, will somehow do a better job of assuring "every person the financial feasibility to purchase the coverage they want" requires a suspension of disbelief that is truly Orwellian. Probably the best evidence of the failure of the market-driven system - which saw the U.S. fall to 37th in the world according to a World Health Organization ranking early in this century - is the decades long push for major healthcare reform. The Affordable Care Act was a step forward, especially in access, through the expansion of Medicaid for many low and moderate income adults, and a ban on some of the worst insurance abuses that permitted more people to buy insurance plans through the ACA market exchanges.

He is underestimated for how a safety player he is, Neil. There were some great exchanges in that frame. It was cat and mouse. So clever about that shot, not only refusing a red, but the position of the cue ball, over the left-hand side of the table, which made it even more difficult to get back.

Aziz reiterated Pakistan’s concerns over deepening U.S. military and nuclear cooperation with India. "The strategic stability in South Asia is very important and we have been emphasizing to US that if you start your defense cooperation and arms agreement in such a way that disturbs our strategic stability then we will have no option but to respond and that is not good for the peace in the region or world," he said. Frequent exchanges of fire across the dispute Kashmir border in recent months have raised military tensions and led to an apparently unending war of words between nuclear-armed India and Pakistan who have already fought four wars. Challenges remain Despite Pakistan’s optimism about establishing a good working relationship with the incoming U.S. administration, critics are skeptical and unclear about how Trump will approach the complexity of the issues facing bilateral relations because he has not talked about the policy during his election campaign.
