    Those (very annoying) birds are pretty resilient and with few natural predators, it's no wonder they flourish in Japan (and much of east Asia). That said, for suddenly having 50 found dead crows (no they aren't ravens) in a park is a bit unusual. Historically such a find was found to be a result of the bird having been infected by consumption of trash items containing the bacteria pathogen of clostridium - or in layman's terms - botulism. It's possible the birds consumed contaminated food from the same garbage pile, which may warrant additional investigation as to who owns the source - hopefully its not a restaurant or food market.

    President Donald Trump [sic] green-lighted the long-delayed Keystone XL pipeline on Friday, declaring it a “great day for American jobs”

    Yes...count all 35 of those full time jobs - just enough to keep a local Starbucks running at standard capacity. Trump might want to hold off on purchasing that next F-35 with all of the tax revenue he'll collect from Keystone. Keep America great indeed.

    If you don’t pass the bill there could be political costs

    The moment you decided to break it - you owned it. There's no walking back from that line, so reap what you sow; after all, all the Republicans have been practically begging for this moment for seven years (even though they had absolutely no intention to improve the ACA in the first place).

    If it fails, then there will be a lot of people looking for work in 2018

    Yes...they become political lobbyist, only to make more money than ever before. Garbage in, garbage out.

    Interesting that today the first daughter (i.e. Ivanka Trump) was granted a Top Secrete clearance (i.e a "Yankee White" clearance) at the behest of the US Government (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/ivanka-white-house-officeus58d056ffe4b00705db520f50?8o4y262cy4rrbv5cdi&&).

    Coincidental or happenstance, that during this bombshell that this somehow warranted his Nordstrom purse-dealing-daughter a very high-level counterintelligence security clearance? Too much weird stuff going on here that doesn't add up at all.

    From what I've heard, shingles in the belly area can be very painful.

    Pretty much everywhere on your body, and it's not going to be a day at the beach for more than a week (at least). Getting drunk daily does take some of the edge off...but not much.

    Agree with other comments, this is a rather private matter, and unless this has to deal with the likes of a session of national power or national security or of something of that magnitude - writing about this is borderline tabloid nonsense to sell ads or parakeet cage liner.

    I guess it's great for those 20-something year old Republican Wall Street investment bankers who make over $10 million a year. God knows of the stress financial they have to deal with the US healthcare system whenever they get something worse than a cold. Someone's gotta look out for them.

    “I’m not in the job of having evidence,” she said. “That’s what investigations are for.”

    So for here on out the "media" shall initiate a time-delay of any future broadcasts of Conway, as she's practically admitted that she's going to spew nothing but BS, unless proven otherwise by those pesky icky things called...facts.

    ...propose that our lawmakers current health insurance be scrapped and members of the House and Senate be bound to participate in any "replacement" plan that they approve

    Also I'd add that they must refund all of their bribes (cough cough), I meant their political contribution donations, and be forced to live like the rest of the serfs they both represent and so adamantly despise.

    Considering that so far, all the Democrats and four Republican Senators (Sens. Rob Portman (Ohio), Shelley Moore Capito (W.Va.), Cory Gardner (Colo.) and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)) have already stated that unless the Medicare expansion within their states is maintained, and it's already panned by at least 30 Congressmen in the "Freedom Caucus" (i.e. Tea Party) as being "Obamacare-light" with a Republican flair, this half-baked plan is already DOA before 45 can even get the opportunity to scribble his name in Crayon on this billboard.

    Unless Hashimoto can somehow convince Abe (let alone the current mayor of Osaka) to set aside some prime real estate for both a golf course and a resort hotel - Hashimoto better keep dreaming of even meeting Trump's lieutenants.

    The Wii U failed, in part, because Nintendo left too many of its most beloved heroes idling on the bench. Consoles gathered dust because there weren’t enough compelling games to play.

    Well partly true, but also consider another historical flaw which is also being repeated with the Switch - a very weak starting lineup of original games to choose from when the Wii system was initially launched. It doesn't matter how good or powerful the console is, it'll collect dust quickly if you can't use it for what it was meant for.

    Perhaps the various ministries working on this app would be wise to apply some "lessons learned" from the big boys like Lyft and Uber - so not to make the exact same mistakes they've already made (e.g. reckless driving behavior, incorrect pick-up times, unclear rates during "peak" periods, driver's ignorance of the local routes and heavily relying on GPS, and canceling customers reservations at the last minute). Otherwise, expect a lot of complaints and discouragement of utilizing the potential of the app.

    Why not methane? There's already an overabundance of the substance that we're attempting to rid the world of. So why not burn it off and demonstrate to the world the true meaning of green technology?

    Just do away with the Oscars in its entirety - it's nothing more than a contest of popularity, definitely not of quality. Does everyone really need to have a trophy these days to feel good about themselves?
