Elizabeth Warren Is Completely Serious Sections Skip to content Skip to site index About income inequality. About corporate power. About corrupt politics. And about being America’s next president. Credit Credit Sharif Hamza for The New York Times Supported by ByEmily Bazelon June 17, 2019 The first time I met Elizabeth Warren, she had just come home from a walk with her husband and her dog at Fresh Pond, the reservoir near her house in Cambridge, Mass. It was a sunny day in February, a couple of weeks after Warren announced her candidacy for president, and she was wearing a navy North Face jacket and black sneakers with, as usual, rimless glasses and small gold earrings. Her hair had drifted a bit out of place. The dog, Bailey, is a golden retriever who had already been deployed by her presidential campaign in a tweet a week earlier, a pink-tongued snapshot with the caption “Bailey will be your … [Read more...] about Elizabeth Warren Is Completely Serious

Frank Witsil Detroit Free Press Published 8:37 PM EDT Oct 13, 2018 The morbid discovery of 11 babies' corpses in the ceiling of a former funeral home in Detroit, and the investigation into who hid them — and why — follows other incidents over the years that have stoked dark fears about the mortuary business across the country. Some have prompted numerous warnings from home associations, and consumer groups warn of schemes, scams — and offer advice to loved ones and older Americans planning ahead for their deaths on how to protect themselves. "The typical funeral these days costs almost $8,000," AARP, an advocacy group for older Americans, warned in a previous bulletin. "Often it's planned by family members who are emotionally vulnerable, unsure of costs, and in a rush to get things settled — a recipe for exploitation."

Progressives and lobbyists are urging business groups to block President Donald Trump’s “public charge” merit-reform of the nation’s immigration laws.

Schwartz Sept. 21, 2018 When the floodwaters from Hurricane Florence recede and rebuilding kicks into high gear, homeowners and businesses will face an additional burden as tariffs imposed by the Trump administration drive up the cost of construction materials. Homebuilders and contractors say the administration’s trade policy will add to the price increases that usually follow natural disasters. In addition to materials like lumber, steel and aluminum, the United States will impose tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese imports next week, including countertops, furniture and gypsum, a key ingredient in drywall. All told, some builders estimate that construction costs could be 20 to 30 percent higher than they would have been without these tariffs. “We’re all going … [Read more...] about Tariffs to Raise Cost of Rebuilding After Hurricane Florence
