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.

Last April, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders set the new high water mark for what US politicians are allowed to say about Israel and Palestine in a debate with Hillary Clinton in New York , when he said that Israeli attacks on Gaza were disproportionate, that US policymakers are one-sided in ignoring Palestinian dignity, and if we pursue justice and peace we are going to have to say that [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu is not right all of the time. On Monday Sanders continued in his role as a leader of the mainstream discourse in a speech to the liberal Zionist group J Street in which he said that Israel’s continued occupation of Palestinian territories and its daily restrictions on the political and civil liberties of the Palestinian people runs contrary to fundamental American values and that Israel's creation in 1948 involved the displacement of more than 700,000 Palestinian refugees though he said this did not delegitimize Israel, any more than U.

While Hugh Jackman is the star power that got this film off the ground, its Taron Egerton as the titular character that steals the show. Directed by Dexter Fletcher, he manages to find enough story and sprinkle in some fantasy to create a wonderfully warm watch. Christopher Guest has been mining the mockumentary format for decades now, offering up classics such as Spinal Tap and Best In Show. Mascots, a Netflix exclusive, is his latest comedy and is centred around the mascots that parade around the big sports games - as they all compete for the ultimate mascot accolade, then Gold Fluffy. While not quite up their with Guest's best work, this is still a great slab of improvised fun. Sing Streets John Carney plays a familiar tune with his movies: they are essentially musicals that are fine to watch if you're not into musicals. But while Once was great but maudlin and Begin Again was okay and maudlin, Sing Street is fantastic.

Last weekend at the J Street conference, Ilan Goldenberg, a former high official in President Obama's foreign policy brain trust, took issue with an Israeli diplomat s assertion that the United States was withdrawing from the Middle East and engaging more in East Asia, in part because of energy independence. Goldenberg said: I'm not sure the U.S. is moving out of the Middle East quite the way Alon [Pinkas] described it. President Obama pulled us back pretty significantly to sort of more of a normal place, to where we were before we went into Iraq. The reality is that even he got drawn in again after ISIS popped up on the scene, and after we over-withdrew from the Middle East. We’re still dropping bombs as we were at the end of the Obama administration in six countries in the Middle East. As much as we dont rely on oil, the world economy still relies on oil, it’s one international market, and the United States forces still underwrite the basic security of the the sea lanes that send that oil and trade out of the Middle East and also connect Europe and Asia overall.
