Cohn, a registered Democrat , is particularly worrisome considering he still works as Goldman SachsCOO (Chief Operating Officer), a top position. Regardless of who won the 2016 election, apparently, Goldman Sachs has retained its influence — just as it did throughout the Obama administration, demonstrating the financial gianthacked’ not just the 2016 election, but also the 2012 and 2008 elections, as well as others before. Goldman Sachs employees were top donors to Barack Obama in 2008 and also contributed to his campaign in 2012 . John McCain and Mitt Romney also received funding from the company. Once elected in 2008, Obama lined his cabinet with former employees of major banking firms who cashed in on government bailouts and donated to his campaign. For example, Rahm Emanuel, who served as his chief of staff from 2008 to 2010 before successfully running for mayor in Chicago, had previously been on Goldman Sachs payroll, both during his time in the Clinton administration and when he was an elected congressman.

Britain no longer wants to be constrained by sleeping with only 27 partners. It wants to shag the rest of the world For the past six months Theresa May had been trying and failing to conjure some sort of credible Brexit plan and all she’d got for her efforts was a load of flak for being clueless. Eventually, she just got fed up. If she couldnt come up with a deal she believed in, then she would come up with one she didnt. She knew it would be economically disastrous for Britain to leave the single market, but if that’s what it took to get everyone who had voted to leave the EU off her back then so be it. Now to share her moment of enlightenment with the rest of the world. And where better than in one of the gilt-lined state rooms of Lancaster House that had doubled up as Buckingham Place for the Crown? As the room began to fillcabinet ministers and EU ambassadors in the centre rows, hacks and No 10 apparatchiks to the side – a lone TV screen displayed the messagePlan for Britain”.

Twenty-one years ago, Susana Ordovás came to Mexico on assignment. A report for a British newspaper was on the docket, and so was José, if fate was going to have any say. Fate pushed and pulled behind the scenes, weaving them towards one another in the seemingly-serendipitous style only this couple can pull off. And as fate would have it, Susana and José were soon married and two children were in the works (though, at the time they of course were none the wiser to that last bit of fate's dealings). Fast-forward to 2017 and the Ordovás family, all four members intact, is thriving in this newly-renovated, Mexico City, MX home. Nestled on a serene, tree-lined street, the space is drenched in light and boasts vacation-level temperatures year-round. Susana, an avid thrifter and flea marketer, has loved using the home's potential as an outlet for her interior passions, and so have her friends.

Them, not us, the defender wrote (in Italian) in the tweet above. We have zero excuses. Bonucci should be applauded for such an approach, but the final sentence there is not exactly accurate, and it is Allegri and his bosses who must shoulder that burden. He sent the team out in Juve s tried and trusted 3-5-2 formation, but opponents appear to have solved that framework comprehensively this term. In all four Serie A matches that Juve have lost, the team has lined up that way only to find themselves outplayed across the pitch and looking completely ill at ease. Of course there have been games where it has worked, with many Italian teams simply unable to tactically negate Juve s strengths whether through a lack of quality or poor coaching. Yet the results do not and should not be allowed to mask the fact that the Bianconeri look so toothless when playing with a three-man defence.

Serena Williams almost started to cry as she drove the Ford SUV through traffic at speeds approaching 100 miles per hour. Her voice shook as she spoke. It was easy to understand why. In front of Williams, an Escalade with two abducted children inside of it ― one of them a baby ― was racing along palm tree-lined Ventura Boulevard in Los Angeles at dangerous speeds. Next to Williams was the babys mother, who was also the other childs aunt. Im almost crying for your baby, Williams said to the woman. Overwhelmed by the weight of the situation, the tennis star took one hand off the wheel and held it over her heart. Just minutes before, Williams had been waiting in the Ford SUV for her friend to use the bathroom. She was parked in a strip mall lot, where she had met the woman now seated next to her during the chase.

MIAMI: More than 80 dolphins known as false killer whales have died off the southwest coast of Florida after getting stranded in shallow waters, US officials said. A pod of 95 of the dolphins, which are black in colour and look like killer whales without white markings, became stranded in the Gulf Coast off Everglades National Park, the park said on Twitter. Photos on social media showed dozens of these dolphins, some grouped in clusters of four or five, just a few feet from a sandy beach lined with trees. "Sadly, 81 have already been confirmed dead," Everglades National Park said Monday, adding that marine mammal rescue operations were being carried out. The dolphins had become "deeply embedded in some of the mangroves making response efforts extremely difficult", Blair Mase, a stranding coordinator with NOAA's fisheries service, said in the Miami Herald newspaper.

East Lansing, MichiganLounging at the back of his tour bus in a parking lot behind the Springhill Suites, Milo Yiannopoulos, the flamboyant right-wing British provocateur known for his bleach-blond frosted tips and relentless campaign against Islam, munched on a whole cucumber protruding from a paper bowl of raw vegetables and made plans for a party. He had just been asked to hostDeploraBall,” an unofficial celebration planned for the presidential inauguration weekend. Yiannopoulos described his vision for the event: As guests entered the National Press Club, shirtless Mexican laborers would be building a physical wall around them. Instead of doves, Yiannopoulos would release 500 live frogs in honor of Pepe, the cartoon mascot of pro-Donald Trump internet trolls. The room would be lined with oil portraits in gilt frames, each depicting a celebrity who had vowed to leave the country in the event of Trump’s election.

The Rose Ceremony : Remember how they didnt have a rose ceremony last week? They finally had it 20 minutes into the show, much to the confusion of anyone just tuning in. The women all lined up, save for Corinne, who went to bed and slept her way through the ceremony, clutching the rose she earned on her last date. Halfway through his speech about the amazing connections he has made, Nick finally notices that Corinne is not there. The women all shrug, so Nick shrugs, too, and hands out his rose to Astrid. He hands roses to Taylor the Therapist, Kristina the hygienist, a few beautiful brunettes, Rachel, Vanessa, Raven, two girls with nose rings (Jaimi and Dominique), someone named Sarah, the dolphin enthusiast, and the wacky nurse. The final rose went to Jasmine, proving that he doesnt hold a grudge for interrupting his dairy mania with Corinne.

FAROE Petroleum has agreed with partners to drill an appraisal well on the Brasse discovery it made in the Norwegian North Sea last year in a move that reflects confidence in the find’s potential. The well, scheduled for this summer, is intended to help firm up estimates of the size of the find. Brasse was initially thought to contain up to 80 million barrels oil equivalent. Faroe has started drilling an exploration well on the Boné prospect, formerly called Dazzler, in the Norwegian Barents Sea with a different partner group. Chief executive Graham Stewart said the well will test a large structure with very significant volume potential. He said the company has a very full programme of work lined up, including exploration and development activity, and has funds in place to support growth.

Next play? Same guy. This time, Adams lined up in the left inside slot in trips left and ran up the left seam with Jones covering him. Adams has a great ability to shake free of coverage in open spaces, and on the replay, you can see him render Jones jelly-legged with an inside fake to the outside route. From there, it was just another master class in timing and precision from Rodgers for the 32-yard completion. Moving on to the NFC championship, it was clear in the Week 8 loss to the Falcons that Rodgers was taking advantage of Atlantas young defense by placing the ball where only his receivers could catch it, and McCarthy did do a good job of scheming his receivers in route concepts that put speed receivers on safeties and linebackers. If Rodgers places the ball the way he did against the Cowboys, he wont need much of a schematic headstart .

So, we were named after the bad guys? Although we were not as well off as virtually all of my friends, somehow my parents managed to cobble together one hell of a childhood for me and my sister. Thanks to my dad's clever bartering system with his other Loman buddies in the clothing business, he traded high-end, deerskin and mink-lined gloves for say, cashmere and mohair sweaters for us. I went to summer camp too. For 13 years. I'm guessing that my folks paid it off week by week, day by day, not only without complaint but without us ever knowing how they managed to pull that off. We went on family vacations to Washington D.C. and through all the New England states. Sure, my friends had their own bedrooms, fancy cars, and even fancier parents. But we were a solid clan who actually had a secret whistle that we performed whenever one of us was approaching the gathered troops.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is a mere appetiser to the main trilogy, the third in the series. It continues late this year with episode 8, which comes a full two years after the first instalment, The Force Awakens, stormed cinema screens. Episode 9 is slated for 2019, but after that, Star Wars devotees want to know, will there be a fourth trilogy? Why would there be? Well, Star Wars creator George Lucas originally planned 12 films in the series, say super-fans on Reddit . A hastily-scribbled list on a yellow lined notebook clearly indicates his plans for a dozen adventures.
