But beware: Most Republicans are willing to take a trip into the GOP closet when it comes to matters of the heart. Apparently, not. Supporters of evangelical runner-up Ted Cruz only have a 38 percent chance of going on a paid date. Espousing conservative values is stigmatized, she says. The perception is that those who do are uptight, cheap and intolerant. Marco Rubio — whose opposition to abortion and LGBT equality is firm — is the best pick for out-of-the-closet Republicans wanting to score a date. The survey shows that Democrats are much less likely to lie about their party affiliation than Republicans. Although we at The Colorado Independent find this all pretty fascinating, we take it with a grain of salt. Or maybe Sanders is a date-magnate across the board.

Where was President Trump on Wednesday night? The president loves the spotlight, and he doesn’t much like to share it. It’s why he was addicted to rallies before the pandemic, and why he did daily coronavirus briefings until his aides convinced him those performances were hurting him politically.
Naturally, Trump’s campaign announced he would speak all four nights of the Republican National Convention. That’s how it worked the first two nights of the convention.

Sometime during the past few years, the country started talking differently about white Americans of modest means. Early in the Obama era, the ennobling language of campaign pundits prevailed. A party losing touch with it was a party unmoored. Listen to the audio version of this article: Download the Audm app for your iPhone to listen to more titles. That flattering glow has faded away. Today, less privileged white Americans are considered to be in crisis, and the language of sociologists and pathologists predominates.
From opposite ends of the ideological spectrum, they made the case that social breakdown among low-income whites was starting to mimic trends that had begun decades earlier among African Americans: Rates of out-of-wedlock births and male joblessness were rising sharply. Then came the stories about a surge in opiate addiction among white Americans, alongside shocking reports of rising mortality rates including by suicide among middle-aged whites.
And then, of course, came the presidential campaign. The question was suddenly no longer why Democrats struggled to appeal to regular Americans. It was why so many regular Americans were drawn to a man like Donald Trump. Equally jarring has been the shift in tone. A barely suppressed contempt has characterized much of the commentary about white woe, on both the left and the right.

They are supposed to be the best and the brightest, the future business leaders of this booming nation that needed them ready yesterday. They attend classes that encourage innovation, thinking outside the box, challenging convention. Before taking on corporate India though, students at the Indian Institutes of Management IIMs need to apply their lessons a little closer to home. Job placements have been unfolding this week at several elite business schools. Like years past, a sea of stress and black suits marks both sides of the table.
Indeed, interviews should force preparation and cause some palpitation. The lousy feeling, of course, extends to the students who are interviewed by these once sunrise darlings of the placement process and so, their experience goes a little something like this:. I love working with clients and building relationships quickly. I have had many opportunities to go overseas, but home is where the action is… Patna to start, you say?

Rand Paul Names Hedge Fund Chief Mark Spitznagel as Economic Adviser
Warren told me recently that the most dramatic policy fight of her life was one in which Bill and Hillary Clinton were intimately involved. In the late nineteen-nineties, Congress was trying to pass a bankruptcy bill that Warren felt was written, essentially, by the credit-card industry. For several years, through a growing network of allies in Washington, she helped liberals in Congress fight the bill, but at the end of the Clinton Administration the bill seemed on the verge of passage.
His progressive aides opposed the bill; aides who were more sympathetic to the financial industry supported it. Warren targeted the one person in the White House who she believed could stop the legislation: the First Lady.
“Indian Matchmaking,” which debuted last week, touches on the centuries-old custom of arranged marriages, in which families, friends or.
Under Trump, business ties might open in more ways between India and the USA than ever before and the markets might rejoice over the idea that India is a legitimate trusted ally of the USA. Every 4 years in early November, the United States of America goes through a rigorous Presidential nomination process. A US President can serve a maximum of two 4-year terms. One by one, the Republicans eliminate a contender as well as the Democrats , and eventually we have one nominee on each side.
The two candidates could not be more different. Secretary Clinton has more than 30 years of political experience. Donald Trump is an enigma that nobody seems to know what to make out of. When he announced that he would run for Presidency, many thought it was a publicity act.

Private-equity executives must be hoping the boss of Blackstone will keep his opinions to himself. More bad publicity is the last thing the industry needs. Other Republican presidential candidates are competing to see who can say the most damning thing about Mitt Romney’s career at Bain Capital. Newt Gingrich’s supporters have even made a sort of horror movie about what happens when private-equity firms like Bain Capital get their hands on otherwise healthy companies.
The buy-out bit of the industry, which buys mature companies, fixes them up and sells them on, is the one on trial few have a bad word for venture capital, which invests in start-ups.
Of course, an alternative economic view, led by economists like Milton Friedman, was that this turn toward the Republican Party was rational.
What is more, the government, through actions such as the furlough scheme to support employment, is choosing to bear an unusually large share of the initial costs. The result will be much higher government debt than previously anticipated. And yet the actual cost of servicing that higher debt may well turn out to be lower than was expected back in March.
More detailed modelling by the Resolution Foundation shows what may be to come. But at the same time, interest rates have collapsed. When the budget was delivered, the OBR expected the yield on government debt to average around 0. Since then the Bank of England has cut rates to a record low and restarted its programme of quantitative easing buying government debt.
As a result, the yield on the benchmark ten-year government debt has fallen to closer to 0. On May 20th the government sold two-year gilts to investors with a negative nominal yield for the first time. For some maturities, the government is therefore being paid to borrow.
