Jets ordered McCown not to talk to media after game

The New York Jets still have not announced who their starting quarterback will be for Week 1, and they apparently don’t want to risk having Josh McCown shed any light on the subject. McCown did not play in Saturday’s preseason game against the Detroit Lions, despite Jets coach Todd Bowles saying earlier in the week that the veteran quarterback “needs work” and would take some snaps. “Thursday night, we just decided that he didn’t need it,” Bowles told reporters, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “We wanted to see the other two guys. Josh has played in a million preseason games. At the last minute, we decided to make that decision.” RELATED: Top 5 quarterbacks on new teams this season How did McCown feel about not getting any reps? We wouldn’t know.

For Trump, a complicated return to a White House in disarray

US President Donald Trump returns to the Oval Office Monday after a two-week vacation rife with chaos — and the dark clouds plaguing his fledgling presidency show no signs of clearing up. Seven months after taking office the real estate magnate’s approval rating has plunged to a record low. And far from striking a more unifying tone, Trump’s words and actions continue to feed the sense of a rudderless presidency, lurching from one self-generated crisis to the next. In perhaps the worst to date, he dealt a crushing blow to his own embattled administration by saying “both sides” were to blame for the bloodshed in Charlottesville, Virginia following a rally by neo-Nazis and white supremacists. Al Gore, a former Democratic vice president, advised Trump to “r...

Stephen Bannon Out at the White House After Turbulent Run

  Stephen K. Bannon, the embattled chief strategist who helped President Trump win the 2016 election but clashed for months with other senior West Wing advisers, is leaving his post, a White House spokeswoman announced Friday. “White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Steve Bannon have mutually agreed today would be Steve’s last day,” the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said in a statement. “We are grateful for his service and wish him the best.” Sign Up For the Morning Briefing Newsletter Earlier on Friday, the president had told senior aides that he had decided to remove Mr. Bannon, according to two administration officials briefed on the discussion.

Top 7 job skills you’ll need in 10 years if you don’t want to get left behind

There’s an awful lot of doomsday chatter about the future of the workforce and how all our jobs will be replaced by robots by 2020. A lot of that might be true. The World Economic Forum’s 2016 Future of Jobs Report estimated that over 5 million jobs will be lost to automation by that time — and that number will only continue to grow. Your usual fallback jobs — you know those “safe bets” your parents always lectured you about: manufacturing, law, administrative, etc. — these will probably suffer the most cuts. But the good news is this: In times of great change, there’s always room for the enterprising and entrepreneurial to clean up. It’s just that there will be new and different skills to master — skills that will be most valuable in a new economy and in a changing world. Here are some of...

Trump’s Crisis Spurs Talk of White House Departures

(NEW YORK/WASHINGTON) – President Donald Trump’s turnabout on the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia has rocked his administration, leading to rising speculation that some top officials may be looking for a way out. A parade of business executives broke ties with Trump on Wednesday, a day after he blamed white nationalists and counter-protesters in equal measure for the weekend clashes that left one woman dead. Now, frustrated aides could be next. Trump’s remarks have left some wondering if sticking by the president comes at too high a cost to their reputations. “A lot of us joined this administration thinking we could bring to it the experience and expertise that the president didn’t have an opportunity to gain in his business career, and to encourage some restraint in what he says pub...

Trump Comments on Race Open Breach With C.E.O.s, Military and G.O.P.

WASHINGTON — President Trump found himself increasingly isolated in a racial crisis of his own making on Wednesday, abandoned by the nation’s top business executives, contradicted by military leaders and shunned by Republicans outraged by his defense of white nationalist protesters in Charlottesville, Va. The breach with the business community was the most striking. Titans of American industry and finance revolted against a man they had seen as one of their own, concluding Wednesday morning they could no longer serve on two of Mr. Trump’s advisory panels. But before Stephen A. Schwarzman, the chief executive of the Blackstone Group and one of Mr. Trump’s closest business confidants, could announce a decision to disband Mr. Trump’s Strategic and Policy Forum — in a prepared statement callin...

Mark Zuckerberg says Facebook is taking down posts and ‘watching the situation closely’ in Charlottesville

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has weighed in on the violent protests that took place in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend, condemning neo-Nazis and promising to make Facebook “a place where everyone can feel safe.” “The last few days have been hard to process. I know a lot of us have been asking where this hate comes from,” Zuckerberg wrote Wednesday afternoon. “As a Jew, it’s something I’ve wondered much of my life.

The Stuff Still Made in the USA

Workers assemble wooden handscrew clamps during production in Dubuque, Iowa, on Aug. 8, 2017. Photographer: Daniel Acker/Bloomberg From handcrafted beer steins to sleeping bags, these American companies have survived global competition. Entire industries, from textiles to toys, have become almost extinct in the U.S. as manufacturers moved abroad in search of lower costs or got swept away by a wave of imports. Some products aren’t Made in America at all anymore. Others still are—but by just a handful of small businesses, or maybe only one. They’re mostly surviving by the skin of their teeth in a world where shoppers care more about price than country of origin. Their stories show the challenge of producing at home—as President Donald Trump is pushing for—and also that it’s not impossible. D...

5 Solid Reasons to End the Death Tax

#TaxReform: 5 Solid Reasons to End the Death Tax By SBE Council at 14 August, 2017, 4:26 pm by Raymond J. Keating- Tax relief and reform is critical for entrepreneurship, small business, U.S. competitiveness and our economy. And it’s important for any reform effort to permanently end the estate, or death, tax. The Death Tax: A Brief History The current U.S. death tax was first imposed in 1916 at a rate of 10 percent. The tax rate topped out at 77 percent at the beginning of World War II, and later declined to 70 percent in 1977. The Reagan tax cuts of the 1980s saw the rate drop to 55 percent. The rate was scheduled to fall to 50 percent in 1993, but that cut was eliminated by the Clinton tax increase that year. Later, the George W. Bush tax relief package saw the rate decline to 50 percen...
