What did the president do and when did he do it? - Roll Call

Image
OPINION — Both CNN and The Washington Post ran stories Wednesday stating that Robert Mueller will deliver his secret report to the Justice Department next week or soon thereafter. While prior predictions of Mueller’s schedule have had the accuracy of a Revolutionary War blunderbuss, the latest timetable makes intuitive sense.Mueller must be keenly aware of the errors that James Comey made with his interventions during the 2016 campaign — and March 2019 is far from the 2020 Democratic primaries, let alone the presidential election. William Barr, whose work with Mueller dates back to the late 1980s, is now installed as attorney general. And, of course, Democrats are wielding the gavels in all House committees.As Garrett Graff points out in Wired, the form that the Mueller report could take ranges from a rich novelistic narrative like the Starr Report to a simple letter to the attorney general stating that the investigation is completed and no further charges will be filed.In truth, the

‘A Nando’s wing roulette with no sides?’ The picture that proves MPs should never eat in public - Telegraph.co.uk

Image
“Hey Siri, which high street restaurant will make us seem like normal people?” One can only presume this was the prelude to The Independent Group’s trip to Nando’s on Monday. Never before has a picture of 11 adults eating chicken raised so many questions. Why has Heidi Allen ordered a 10-piece wing roulette but no sides? Has Angela Smith got piri-piri houmous as a main? Does Anna Soubry really want chips with her salad or has she just ordered them to fit in? And why has she ordered bottled water? Doesn’t she know you can get free refills at the machine?It’s not completely clear if Soubry knew where she was, or what was happening when this picture was taken. (“When the nice young man asks for...

ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove Review - Groovin' On Up - PC Invasion

Image
The first Toejam & Earl game really stuck out when it released. While most kid-friendly games at the time were platformers meant for broad appeal, this title was an isometric, randomly-generated game with a quirky, hip-hop aesthetic. It was a sleeper hit due to just how different and creative it was. However, its sequel was a more generic experience. The franchise had another game released in the early ’00s, but it’s lain dormant since then. So, how does Toejam & Earl fit into the modern gaming landscape?Unlike the second and third games in the series, ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove is extremely similar to the first game. Rogue-lites are really popular right now, so the game does a good job of fitting into the current landscape. Even then, however, it’s very different from modern rogue-lites. The story begins with our heroes taking their friend Lamont’s spaceship to Earth so that ToeJam can attempt to impress their friend Lawanda. Naturally, things go horribly wrong and…

Former Gambling Addicts Worry for Next Generation of Online Gamblers - Tunf

Darren Crocker, a recovering gambling addict from Aberdeen, reveals his worries for the next generation of online gamblers, explaining how once placing a bet has escalated from being “good and fun natured” to “more sinister”. After losing £5,000 in a “matter of minutes”, Darren says his gambling habit started as a bet on football every Saturday, which soon led to betting on sports on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and then “random teams on a Friday morning”. It wasn’t long before he was introduced to in-play betting, where wagers are placed during the game instead of before kick-off.“It was good and fun natured when it was going into the bookies at the weekend and having a bet with your friends, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that,” he recalls, sounding a little nostalgic as he describes those early days gambling with friends. It became more sinister and more serious when you could do this via your phone or your laptop because there is no control measure there. You are your own bookm…

Cosmetic Medicine practitioners are lobbying the Government to tighten regulations within the industry, and re-categorise it as a 'specialist' field.Dr Catherine Stone from The Face Place says "at the moment if you are a doctor, a nurse or a dentist, you don't even have to do a one-day course, you can pick up a needle and start injecting.""It's not currently a specialist qualification," says Dr Sarah Hart, who has worked in the industry for 18 yearsHave you had a bad experience with a beauty treatment?

In briefThe Independent Group made a series of schoolboy errors in their ordersGone are the days of Stan Smiths and silken perinaise - it's all chips and salad for the centristsWhere is Mike Gapes' dinner? Full marks for the bottle of red though There was a time when Nando’s was cheeky. Unifyingly so.British diners have long celebrated Nando’s with brash frivolity. Groups of friends declare their protein-rich intentions and in together they stride, Stan Smiths on feet, ordering plates of wing roulette and frantically dipping fries in silken perinaise.Such was the level of Nando’s cheekiness that in 2015 even Americans caught wind of the phrase – though its rich meaning was entirely lost on them.But Nando’s has this week been detached from such a sense of place by The Independent Group, who dined there on Monday night and made doing so public on Twitter.Hacks struggling for an angle on how best to report the kremlinology of the group be aware I kept a list of medium, lemon and h…

Never Manage Alone MLS Fantasy Launch - Never Manage Alone

Image
This spring, Never Manage Alone is hopping the pond to take on Major League Soccer (MLS) and its particular brand of fantasy. While the construct of the game remains very familiar to most experienced fantasy soccer players, this flavor of fantasy competition is quite robust. The best way to present this to many of you is by simple comparison. The MLS fantasy platform has generously solved many common constraints that frustrate the average Official Fantasy Premier League manager. In what ways does MLS fantasy offer an attractive experience?~OPEN TRANSFER RULESFor example, MLS fantasy does away with the rigid, slow churn of transfer limits. First, this game does not limit the number of transactions a manager can make from week to week. That means no more stress-induced, internal debates regarding the proper conditions for taking a transfer hit. Secondly, how many times have you as an FPL manager been burned by injury speculation, squad rotation, or that darned Pep Roulette? With MLS’s a…

DraftKings reportedly developing standalone mobile gambling app - CalvinAyre.com

According to eGaming Review (EGR), DraftKings is said to be considering a standalone mobile casino app. The app would be available for download and use to gambling fans in New Jersey, and the gaming media outlet adds that DraftKings “is expected to launch [the app] in the coming months.” DraftKings has not yet issued a statement on the subject.DraftKings has been in the news a lot over the past couple of years. It entered the U.S. market ahead of its major competitor, FanDuel, and never looked back. The company has been on a mission to take over the online sportsbook market in the U.S. and the launch of a standalone mobile casino will help it further its agenda.The company already has a DraftKings Sportsbook app in New Jersey, which it introduced in August of last year. In December, it added a casino-style blackjack game to the app, a step deeper into all-things-gambling. With the addition of other games—such as poker, roulette and slots—DraftKings continued to forge deeper into the m…

The Most Important Paragraph In Buffett's Annual Letter - Forbes

Image
Share to facebookShare to twitterShare to linkedinASSOCIATED PRESS Among the many gems in Warren Buffett's recent letter is another warning about the perils of debt. Whether you're a student, a CFO, an entrepreneur or a retiree, it's worth listening. Buffett has written many times with pith and insight on the topic. As he once said: if you're smart, you don't need leverage; if you're dumb, it will ruin you. The smart and the dumb—and all the rest of us in between—should pay heed. But Buffett has used a new metaphor to explain the problems with over-leveraging the balance sheet:At rare and unpredictable intervals...credit vanishes and debt becomes financially fatal. A Russian-roulette equation—usually win, occasionally die—may make financial sense for someone who gets a piece of a company’s upside but does not share in its downside. But that strategy would be madness for Berkshire. Rational people don’t risk what they have and need for what they don’t have and do…

Portugal's iGaming Rises by 24% in 2018 - Latest Casino Bonuses

Image
Portuguese gambling authority, Serviço Regulação e Inspeção de Jogos do Turismo de Portugal, has been busy summing up last year's financial figures that show a steady ascent of online betting and gaming income in continental Europe's western-most country.In total, €152.1 million has been made via iGaming channels during last year's 12-month period of 2018, which was Portugal’s regulated online market's second full year of existence (it launched in May 2016).The said revenue represents a 24% leap compared to 2017. This success echoes the positive outcome in GGR for the nation's land-based casinos.Sports Wagering Leads the WayThe vertical that made the most significant impact......was sports wagering, which was a main source of income for virtually all licensed operators with €78.9 million collected – the year prior, it amounted to €68.1 million.Of course, this sports wagering peak can be explained with last year's World Cup in Russia which occurred in the second…
