Donald Trump’s 57 most outrageous quotes from his Arizona speech

Cops throw gas canisters, protesters throw them back (CNN)President Donald Trump went to Arizona on Tuesday night and delivered what has now become a trademark speech: Full of invective, victimhood and fact-free retellings of recent historical events. I went through the transcript of Trump’s speech — all 77 minutes — and picked out his 57 most outrageous lines, in chronological order. They’re below. 1. “And just so you know from the Secret Service, there aren’t too many people outside protesting, OK. That I can tell you.” This is, literally, the first line of his speech. Trump is obsessed with the idea that the opposition to him is overstated while the support for him is understated. (They won’t turn the cameras around and show the size of my...

Ashley Graham Would Prefer to Use These Terms and Not “Plus-Size”

This post was written by Jonathan Borge and originally appeared on InStyle.com.  Model Ashley Graham is all about body positivity. She regularly asks that women embrace who they are, regardless of size, and frequently takes to social media to make that loud and clear. In January, she shared a photo that highlighted her cellulite in order to show others that anyone can be confident, bold, and sexy. “I think there’s nothing more real than that. It’s there. I’m not afraid to talk about it. I’m not afraid to show it. And I don’t think that other women should be ashamed of theirs as well,” she told InStyle in April. As a top model with a career of fronting collections designed for various shapes and sizes, the 29-year-old’s thoughts on the term “plus-size” deserve acknowledgment. In a new...

Mother-Daughter Duo Behind Dormify Are Expanding Into Millennial Apartments

The Mother-Daughter Duo Behind Dormify Are Expanding Into Millennial Apartments When Amanda Zuckerman and her mother Karen Zuckerman were shopping for Amanda’s freshman dorm room, they had a hard time piecing together stylish décor. The duo became frustrated going store to store and realized there wasn’t a destination for stylish dorm room shopping. In 2012 the mother-daughter team launched Dormify, a website offering style-minded college students an easier way to decorate their new spaces. 24-year-old Amanda Zuckerman and her mother Karen Zuckerman, co-founders of Dormify “When my mom and I were shopping for my freshman dorm room we realized first-hand that creating a space of your own, your first home-away-from-home, was a big deal,” Amanda Zuckerman said. “The problem, though, was that ...

6 Challenges To Expect As An Entrepreneur (And How To Overcome Them)

An entrepreneur specializing in social media marketing for small businesses, a corporate social responsibility advocate, and investor. Shutterstock Entrepreneurship is a field unlike any other. One of the things that I learned early in my career as a self-employed business person is that, while every day presents new opportunities, there are new challenges to contend with as well. It wasn’t until I really had a chance to put things into perspective that I realized that all (or most) of these challenges could be broken down into one of two categories: temporary or recurring. Let’s look at six recurring challenges that you’ll likely face as a business person and how you can overcome them. Handling Investment Shortages Contrary to what many may believe, being an entrepreneur isn’t a get-rich-...

Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, and Oprah Winfrey All Use the 5-Hour Rule

Top business leaders often spend five hours per week doing deliberate learning. In the article “Malcolm Gladwell Got Us Wrong,” the researchers behind the 10,000-Hour Rule set the record straight: Different fields require different amounts of deliberate practice in order for someone to become world-class. If 10,000 hours isn’t an absolute rule that applies across fields, what does it really take to become world class in the world of work? Over the past year, I’ve explored the personal histories of many widely admired business leaders, including Elon Musk, Oprah Winfrey, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, and Mark Zuckerberg, in order to understand how they apply the principles of deliberate practice. What I’ve done does not qualify as an academic study, but it does r...

Why most people will never be successful

“Success” isn’t just having lots of money. Many people with lots of money have horribly unhappy and radically imbalanced lives. Success is continuously improving who you are, how you live, how you serve, and how you relate. So why won’t most people be successful? Why don’t most people evolve? The more evolved you become, the more focused you must be on those few things which matter most. Yet, as Jim Rohn has said, “A lot of people don’t do well simply because they major in minor things.” To be successful, you can’t continue being with low-frequency people for long periods of time. You can’t continue eating crappy food, regardless of your spouse’s or colleague’s food choices. Your days must consistently be spent on high...

What Is an Eclipse?

  An eclipse takes place when one heavenly body such as a moon or planet moves into the shadow of another heavenly body. There are two types of eclipses on Earth: an eclipse of the moon and an eclipse of the sun. What Is a Lunar Eclipse? The moon moves in an orbit around Earth, and at the same time, Earth orbits the sun. Sometimes Earth moves between the sun and the moon. When this happens, Earth blocks the sunlight that normally is reflected by the moon. (This sunlight is what causes the moon to shine.) Instead of light hitting the moon’s surface, Earth’s shadow falls on it. This is an eclipse of the moon — a lunar eclipse. A lunar eclipse can occur only when the moon is full. A lunar eclipse can be seen from Earth at night. There are two types of lunar eclipses: total lu...

Day care with suspected ‘hot-car death’ has history of violations

PENSACOLA, Fla. — The Florida day care where a toddler died Friday in a suspected hot-car death has had four violations by the state Department of Children and Families over the last two years. In His Arms Christian Academy is currently under  Department of Children and Families investigation after  a 3-year-old girl was found in distress at the facility Friday, and died soon after at a local hospital. Escambia County (Fla.) Sheriff’s Office and the State Attorney’s Office  are investigating the death. While authorities have yet to confirm the fatality was heat-related, the Department of Children and Families referred to the incident as a “hot car death” in a statement released Friday afternoon. The state agency also shut down the day care until further notice Frida...

North Korea warns of nuclear war if U.S. drill turns to ‘actual fighting’

North Korea warned Sunday that the joint U.S.-South Korean military exercises set to start Monday will be “adding fuel to the fire” of already heightened tensions with the United States and its allies.   An editorial in North Korea’s Rodong Sinmun newspaper described the annual military drill as “reckless behavior driving the situation into the uncontrollable phase of a nuclear war,” CNN reported. Pyongyang also said that “no one can guarantee that the exercise won’t evolve into actual fighting,” according to South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency.   “If the United States is lost in a fantasy that war on the peninsula is at somebody else’s door far away from them across the Pacific, it is far more mistaken than ever,” Yo...

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 might be out as soon as September 15th

For a while after the Note 7 debacle, the fate of Samsung’s supersized phone line was uncertain. It soon became pretty clear, though, that the Korean manufacturer isn’t killing the name: Samsung is launching the Galaxy Note 8 on August 23rd, and according to notable leaker Evan Blass (evleaks), it will be available as soon as September 15th. In addition, you’ll reportedly be able to pre-order the phone on August 24th, a day after the company’s Unpacked event. If you’re ready to take a chance on the latest Note 8 — and your bank account is ready to take the hit — you may want to reserve one instead of waiting for it to come out. Blass said pre-orders will come with either a 256GB microSD card and a wireless charger or Samsung’s cute Gear 360 c...
