    8/13/2016 @ 5:01 AM - US presidential candidate and Yum! Brands connoisseur Donald Trump enjoys absurdly low support from various American groups, namely blacks and Hispanics.

    8/13/2016 @ 4:00 AM - Obviously Clinton is Leslie Knope, the blond politico, ambitious to her bones, who, whatever you think of her politics, is undeniably devoted to public service It seems increasingly obvious to me that the only sensible way to look at the US election is through the prism of Parks And Recreation . This American sitcom, which sadly came to the end of its six-year run last year, starred Amy Poehler as local government official Leslie Knope, and once you start seeing the parallels between the lovely fictional show and the horrible reality shitshow, it makes the latter feel more bearable.

The Guardian found that the £30 million resort in north-east Scotland hadn't been registered under the Data Protection Act, "despite operating an extensive CCTV system and handling data on thousands of golfers and guests, its staff, and suppliers," potentially putting Trump's golf resort at risk of being found guilty of a criminal offence and fined.

The Labor Department said that weekly unemployment aid applications declined 1,000 to a seasonally adjusted 266,000. The four-week average, a less volatile measure, rose 3,000 to 262,750. Applications are a proxy for layoffs and are at historically low levels. That suggests employers are confident enough in the economy to hold onto their staffs. At the same time, hiring has picked up: Employers added the most jobs in eight months in June and hiring was also healthy in July. The unemployment rate was 4.9 percent in both months....

    8/11/2016 @ 10:46 AM - Image via iStock Mortgages inherently deal with death.
