The one major reason Graham-Cassidy could pass

When it comes to the Graham-Cassidy health care bill, there is one thing Republicans agree on right now: It’s their last shot to repeal and replace Obamacare.

That may be all the motivation they need to pass it.
.
In recent days, an intense operation to sell the bill to few key holdouts has gotten underway. But most of those conversations are happening under the radar.
 
 On Wednesday, the bill’s sponsors, Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, briefed Alaska Sens. Dan Sullivan and Lisa Murkowski. Arizona Sen. John McCain, another holdout, is also under pressure to get to “yes,” with Graham, a close friend, taking the lead on trying to convince him.

Who’s right on Cassidy bill?

Trump announces new economic sanctions targeting North Korea over nuclear program

President Trump announced an executive order Thursday to grant additional authority to the Treasury Department to enforce economic sanctions on North Korea and foreign companies and individuals that do business with the rogue nation in Northeast Asia.

The president also said that Chinese President Xi Jinping had ordered Chinese banks to cease conducting business with North Korean entities. Trump called the move “very bold” and “somewhat unexpected,” and he praised Xi.

“North Korea’s nuclear program is a grave threat to peace and security in our world, and it is unacceptable that others financially support this criminal, rogue regime,” Trump said in brief public remarks during a meeting with the leaders of South Korea and Japan to discuss strategy to confront Pyongyang over its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

Indians set modern MLB record with 22nd straight win on dramatic walk-off

Coming into Thursday night, the stakes were pretty clear for the Cleveland Indians: Another win — No. 22 in a row — would set the modern record for an MLB winning streak, passing the 1935 Chicago Cubs. But a loss to the Kansas City Royals and Cleveland’s magical run would be over.

Oh, but the Indians had a little more magic left in them.

The Indians won a nail-biter against the Royals, 3-2 in 10 innings, a game that began to feel like October as the Indians mounted a ninth-inning rally. Then in the 10th inning, when Jay Bruce knocked a walk-off single into right, it was proven — the Indians wouldn’t be denied a piece of baseball history. They hadn’t lost since Aug. 23 and they wouldn’t on Thursday night. Sorry, Cubs, this is Cleveland’s record now.

Incredibly, it was the Indians’ first walk-off win their 22-game streak. Gotta keep it fresh, right? The Tribe also managed to clinch a postseason berth later in the evening when the Angels lost to the Astros. Cleveland’s main target, of course, is the AL Central crown. Their magic number for that is three.

Obama swipes at, but doesn’t name, Trump

Leave a comment

In a rare public appearance eight months after leaving office, former President Barack Obama took shots at his successor’s plans on health care and foreign policy but didn’t criticize him by name.

In a speech and question-and-answer session that closely resembled the types of appearances he favored as president, Obama called repeated efforts to repeal his signature health care law “frustrating.” He defended institutions like the United Nations as essential to collective diplomacy. And he warned against nationalism and xenophobia, saying they threaten to stymie progress that has made the world more livable.
.
“It may be frustrating that we have to mobilize every couple months to keep our leaders from inflicting real human suffering on their constituents,” Obama said of the health care battle. “But typically, that’s how progress is won.”

2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season Rivaling Other Historically Active Years

.

As of Monday, 13 named storms, seven hurricanes, and four major (Category 3 or stronger) hurricanes had formed in the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season.

These numbers were boosted by a stretch of eight named storms, all of which except for Lee became hurricanes, since Aug. 6. 

Included in this stretch was catastrophic Category 4 Hurricane Harvey, followed by the long-lived saga of Hurricane Irma, then by long-lived Jose and the latest intense and soon-to-be long-lived Hurricane Maria.

2017 Atlantic hurricane season tracks-to-date, through 11 a.m. EDT, September 18, 2017. (Note: The green line connects the points between Harvey degenerating to a remnant in the eastern Caribbean Sea and its regeneration as a tropical cyclone in the southwest Gulf of Mexico.)

The Suburb of the Future, Almost Here

Leave a comment

The suburbanization of America marches on. That movement includes millennials, who, as it turns out, are not a monolithic generation of suburb-hating city dwellers.

Most of that generation represents a powerful global trend. They may like the city, but they love the suburbs even more.

They are continuing to migrate to suburbs. According to the latest Census Bureau statistics, 25- to 29-year-olds are about a quarter more likely to move from the city to the suburbs as vice versa; older millennials are more than twice as likely.

Their future — and that of the planet — lies on the urban peripheries. Hurricanes Harvey and Irma made clear that, especially in suburbs, the United States desperately needs better drainage systems to handle the enormous amounts of rainfall expected from climate change.

They also made clear that new, sustainable suburbs can offer an advantage by expanding landscapes that can absorb water.

Okay, but what does director Darren Aronofsky think ‘mother!’ is really about?

Leave a comment

It feels like everyone comes out of mother! with a different takeaway, and that’s one of the most intriguing things about it. This is a film that sparks discussion by opening itself up to all sorts of interpretations.

But if you’re curious what its own creator, writer-director Darren Aronofsky, thinks it’s about, you’ve come to the right place.

Aronofsky’s been hitting the press circuit in promotion of his new movie, which stars Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem as a couple disturbed by a couple of unexpected visitors. There’s a lot (a lot) more to it than that, and the filmmaker’s been happy to discuss exactly what it all means. Well, what most of it means.
