"President Donald Trump's campaign manager deleted a tweet featuring a dramatic photo of Air Force One at the Daytona 500 after users pointed out that..."

"... the shot was from President George W. Bush's visit to the NASCAR race in 2004, not from Trump's visit on Sunday."CNN reports. I'm going to use my old tag "the Air Force 1 photo op."

Kennedy Revises Impeachable Offense Stance: ‘It Depends On Why He Asked For It’

Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) has revised his stance on what constitutes an impeachable offense for the President during an appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday morning. When asked by CBS’ Margaret Brennan whether he stood by his statement on the show last November that it would be an impeachable offense if the President asked for an investigation of a political rival, Kennedy responded that “it depends on why he asked for it.” “I think what I said at the time was that if a president asked f...

Frank had a game-high 19 points and BJ Boston added 18. The lopsided score wasn’t a good indication of Sierra Canyon’s offensive performance. It will n...

Could you live in 350 square feet? Southland cities hope micro-housing can help tackle affordability

Dawn Davis knew what she was getting into. She showed up, months before, to measure the space. All 380 square feet of it. She planned where her bed would fit — in the corner by the window, with a small trunk at its foot. She imagined her loveseat sliding in close by, with a small room divider to separate the two. And she contemplated which of the things she’d carted along with her since she left her childhood home more than 30 years prior — from New Jersey to North Carolina to Ohio to Florida to...

Marilyn Monroe TV Series Being Developed By ‘Yellowstone’ Producers

There’s a Marilyn Monroe TV series in the works from Yellowstone producer 101 Studios and Seven Seas Films, and it’s bound to raise an eyebrow or two. Because the series isn’t a mere biographical work that focuses on the late starlet’s life. Instead, the still-untitled show will focus on Monroe’s tragic final years struggling with addiction, ultimately resulting in her death via drug overdose. But it also wants to set the record straight and put to bed some of the more lurid conspiracy theories...

"And does one really need to point out why it’s so rich of those who argue for states’ rights to argue against site-specific architecture, stylistically conceived to suit America’s diverse cultures..."

"... and instead favor obedience to a mandate from Washington? Or to explain that disagreements about architectural style speak to a healthy, democratic society in action? After all, there is no single style of architecture that represents nationhood — or that does not, and should not, provoke debate. The executive order borrows language from the 'Guiding Principles for Federal Architecture' that Daniel Patrick Moynihan wrote in 1962 when the future senator was working in Kennedy’s Labor Departm...

Reframing Brand Problems For A Bigger Future

When Steve Jobs met Robert Friedland in 1972, Robert was the spiritual seeking proprietor of an apple farm commune. He introduced Steve Jobs to a principle called the ‘reality distortion field’. In his 2011 biography Steve Jobs told his biographer, Walter Isaacson, ‘Friedland…turned me on to a different level of consciousness’. The ‘reality distortion field’ is an extreme version of what the psychologist Daniel Kahneman calls a ‘pervasive optimistic bias’ in his book: ‘Most of us view the wor...
