A six figure sum paid by a national supermarket chain to Somerset County Council Highways to improve the road and pavements near its new store has not been used. Lidl paid £100,000 to Highways for improvements to the junction on Lysander Road, in Yeovil, and it also included upgrades to Toucan crossings, footpaths, cycleways and a new bus stop. The store was approved in March 2016 and it opened in December 2016. Nearly four months later and no work has been carried out. There is also...

What do we do about that?' And FDA's answer was, Well, can you tell people just to buy chickens of all the same size?'" The FDA later admitted, "Maybe that's hard to do." Robert Rosado, a senior director at the Food Marketing Institute, which represents 40,000 retail grocery stores including Giant, Safeway, Harris Teeter, Whole Foods, Wegmans, and Weis Markets, said stores could stop carrying local foods. Local food growers would have to provide stores with a nutrition analysis, records, recipes, and sign an affidavit to comply with the regulation. "The way FDA has written this, it's the local person in the store, the store employee, that's liable, has to sign something for it," Rosado said. "What's happening in reality, a lot of these local items are going away." Pizza chains like Domino's say they have no problem listing calorie information, a practice that has been commonplace on websites for over a decade.

Still, he said of the repeal bill, “If it were a Medicaid reform bill — and only a Medicaid reform bill, it would be decent to good ... I’d probably give it a solid C.” He opposes it now, however, because it preserves far too much Obamacare for his taste — and moves too slowly to roll back the health law’s Medicaid expansion. Although a block of conservatives can — and might — stop passage of the repeal bill, most House Republicans do back it. The nearly $1 trillion cut in federal spending — it will probably be more than $880 billion once the CBO takes last-minute bill changes into account — is a big reason. But if this bill fails because of the Obamacare repeal, another chance to revamp Medicaid might not come along soon since this is part of a fast-track budget reconciliation measure that needs only 51 votes to pass the Senate. Most measures would need 60 votes to break a Democratic filibuster.

Only making your own independent political views crystal clear can accomplish that. Saturday Night Live dubbed you “the woman who could stop all this … but wont.” That’s overstating the case. As a family friend told the Los Angeles Times , “Ivanka is the one person who can speak frankly with her father. And he will listen. But in the end, it is him who makes the decision. Donald rules the roost.” He makes the decision. But you can shape the conversation, perhaps more than anyone else except for him. Unlike everyone else wielding their knives and watching their backs, you can’t be fired. (You’re not even being classified as a government employee.) And Lord help the Republican who dares attack the president’s daughter as off-message or disloyal. You have enormous latitude to speak your mind and influence the national agenda. In your previous book, “The Trump Card,” you chafe at the notion your success comes from nepotism: “In business, as in life, nothing is ever handed to you.

With most racing slicks, if you push too hard and overheat the tire, backing off for a few corners lets them cool down, and everything goes back to normal. But when the F1 Pirellis of the past few years overheat, they're ruined. (It's possible this is caused by a particular chemical used in the manufacturing process that makes the tire compound extrudable.) That won't be the case this year; now the tires will suffer little to no drop-off or degradation, so expect a lot of one-stop strategies, at least for the first few races.

It's much easier to do at the incubation stage. "We really took our hiatus this year and took the show apart, and rebuilt it piece by piece. We're much more deliberate, just thinking about where is this going to take us." Klemmer added this: "A lot of the story of season 1 felt like they were compulsory because we put certain story elements into motion. You killed Rip's family, you've got to avenge that. We said that Vandal Savage is going to ruin the world, we've got to stop that. Oh, we revealed who our bad guy is, that doesn't leave much room for mystery." Marc Guggenheim, another of the show's executive producers, chimed in with this: "The learning curve [of season 1] was… it wasn't a curve, it was a straight line up [...] So in season 2, we've used the destruction of the Oculus and the Time Masters in episode 15 as a kicking off point for a brand new raison d'etre for the show and for the team.

Wyclef Jean is furious about being detained by police. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go "Wyclef Jean says L.A. County Sheriff's deputies flat-out lied about his traffic stop to cover their asses. Wyclef tells TMZ, he doesn't really have a problem with the fact he was stopped in West Hollywood early Tuesday after someone dressed similar to him and driving a similar car committed an armed robbery. The singer has big issues with the Sheriffs' narrative -- that he was furtive, went to his trunk and refused to move his hands away from his waistband. Wyclef calls BS, saying the cops were all over him the second they stopped the car and he had no chance of going to the trunk. Wyclef says the Sheriffs have committed character assassination and he's now considering legal action .
