World International Affairs U.S. President Donald Trump will not attend an anti-nationalist peace conference organized by French President Emmanuel Macron as part of World War One commemorations in Paris this weekend, organisers have said. Trump is among dozens of world leaders traveling to France to mark the centenary of the end of the war, but will not take part in a forum designed to fight back against the rising tide of nationalism and extremism worldwide, Agence France-Presse reported. Macron has repeatedly warned of the dangers of nationalist sentiment, and warned last month that Europe must guard against rising right-wing movements to avoid the kind of violence that consumed the continent in the 20th century. His criticism extends to Trump’s “America first” stance, and in April Macron told Congress: “We will not let the rampaging work of extreme nationalism shake a world full of hopes for greater prosperity.” Macron will host the inaugural … [Read more...] about Trump Will Snub Macron’s Peace Forum During WWI Armistice Commemorations
By Washington Post PUBLISHED: November 9, 2018 at 6:42 am | UPDATED: November 9, 2018 at 6:42 am By Krissah Thompson | The Washington Post As Michelle Obama’s highly anticipated memoir “Becoming” arrives, it’s clear that the former first lady is occupying a space in the culture beyond politics. With an arena book tour featuring A-list special guests, she seems to exist in the middle ground between two icons she calls friends, Oprah Winfrey and Beyoncé Knowles-Carter. Her approach is short of Winfrey’s full-on confessional style but goes further than the guarded intimacy of Knowles-Carter’s art and performances. Her book walks a similar line. It’s revealing, right down to the glossy cover photo in a casual white top – one shoulder exposed, eyes bright. (Spoiler: It’s not the kind of shirt a soon-to-be political candidate wears.) But Obama, who was famously guarded as first lady, still values her privacy – even as she … [Read more...] about Michelle Obama reveals why she will never forgive Donald Trump
In our Eagles chat this week, there were a lot of questions that we could not get to in time or other questions we did answer but could use more color. And so, let's do a mailbag post to answer some of the overflow.Question from Power Sturge: Where will Sammy Sleeves end up? Pat Shurmur loves him. He was Bradford’s offensive coordinator in St. Louis when Bradford was a rookie, and then he was his OC once again in Philly when the Eagles traded for him. And then, of course, he was a big part of the reason the Vikings traded a 1 and a 4 to the Eagles to get him, when he was the OC in Minny.Eli Manning is scheduled to count for 23.2 million against the cap in 2019. If they cut or trade (lol) him, they will save $17 million of that money. They would be insane to keep Eli around for yet another year, though they stupidly thought he was an answer in 2018, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Anyway, if the Giants move on from Eli in the offseason, is there a chance Shurmur could convince the … [Read more...] about Eagles mailbag: Where will Sleevie Wonder (a.k.a. Sam Bradford) end up in 2019?
The culinary marketplace going into Rosedale Center will open just in time to feed holiday revelers. Revolution Hall, originally called Craveable Market but has since been renamed, is slated to roll out Nov. 16. “We wanted to change the name to reflect what the concept was,” said Craveable Hospitality Group culinary director Matt O’Neill, whose restaurant resume includes Daniel Boulud’s Bar Boulud in New York City and The Little Nell in Aspen. “(Those involved in this project) have a fine-dining background. We have the same mentality of made-from-scratch cooking, high-end chef-curated and local ingredients. It’s fine-dining type of food, but you get your food quick and at a lower price point.” The hospitality group out of New York has zoomed in on Minnesota as the first location for a concept they’re likening to a food hall, with multiple kiosks specializing in various foods, only run by one operator. About a dozen kiosks are on the … [Read more...] about New Rosedale Center food marketplace will be open for holiday season
