Teen volleyball player who revealed Indianapolis Colts draft picks dies

Teen volleyball player who revealed Indianapolis Colts draft picks dies Madi Moore, 17 , wanted her fight with cancer to inspire others. Having to fight graft-versus-host disease after all of that took a toll on her spirit; still Madi fought hard. "It’s a process we are going through, even with the tremendous battle with the leukemia, it doesn't seem like it’s ever finished until it actually is finished," Gregg Orman said in April. "So, we are trying to get this thing to the finish line." The day before she appeared on NFL Network, Madi said her goal was to get healthy enough to go back to school this fall for her senior year and play on the volleyball team.

Wherefore art thou Romeo? Juliet isn't asking where Romeo is—she's asking why he's Romeo. Because of the base word where, modern ears often interpret this line as asking the question: “Where are you, Romeo?”

The Shakespearian question has resonated through time and is applicable to so much: "Wherefore art thou, Romeo?"

Today, it could be asked of the Republican Party.

With the Democratic Party, we at least know its purpose.

Democratic leaders - whether in Congress or among the 20-plus people running for president - have made their themes and objectives clear.

Spurs reportedly angry with Knicks over Marcus Morris signing

Spurs reportedly angry with Knicks over Marcus Morris signing The San Antonio Spurs agreed to a deal with Marcus Morris in the first week of free agency only to have him back out and sign with the New York Knicks, and you can probably guess how Gregg Popovich’s team feels about the situation. One NBA general manager told Frank Isola of The Athletic that the Spurs are “pissed” that Morris did not honor the verbal agreement they had in place with him for a two-year, $20 million deal. He instead signed a one-year, $15 million contract with the Knicks, and that came after San Antonio created more cap space by trading Davis Bertans and having free agent DeMarre Carroll tweak his deal.

Judd Alan Gregg (born February 14, 1947) is an American politician and lawyer. He served as the 76th Governor of New Hampshire and was a United States Senator from New Hampshire; in the Senate, Gregg served as chairman of the Senate Health Committee and the Senate Budget Committee.

The Democratic Party is now the party of expansive government.

Its leading lights have called for nationalized healthcare; universal employment; largely-free college education; an increased national minimum wage; universal paid family leave; an end to carbon-emitting cars, planes and electricity plants; the right of felons to vote; national legalization of narcotics like marijuana; national price-setting for drug sales; and rent subsidies for anyone making less than a particular sum of money. And the list goes on.

The Democratic Party now believes that the path of socialism - some, such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), call it "democratic socialism" - is the right one for the nation.

It is an ideological strand that has significant historical roots within the Democratic Party. But not since Democrats crowned then-Sen. George McGovern (S.D.) as their 1972 presidential nominee has it had the dominance it now enjoys.

Wherefore Art Thou Baghdadi? In fair Tripoli, where we lay our scene, ancient grudges and new mutinies are being broken by a radical experiment to turn I met Baroudi over coffee during her recent visit to the United States and listened to her explain why she opted to use art as an approach to CVE.

Art could be a Turner painting, a Da Vinci masterpiece or somebody touring East Anglia putting a walnut on top of every dog poo they come across! Opinions are divided on what is foisted upon us in the name of modern art and when it comes to pickled cows

Still, we know where the Democratic Party stands. We know where its leadership wants to take the nation. It has chosen a clear course.

This is not true of the Republican Party.

To return to Shakespeare, in this case Hamlet: "Alas poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio: a fellow of infinite jest, of excellent fancy: he hath borne me on his back a thousand times, and now, how abhorred in my imagination it is..."

The Republican Party of Presidents Eisenhower, Reagan, and the Bushes finds itself like "poor Yorick" today - a skeleton of its former self.

The party once had clear causes.

Among them - maybe even top of the list - was a commitment to fiscal restraint.

The GOP controlled the field when it came to giving the American people policies that would lead to a solvent, fiscally strong federal government.

This claim can no longer be made.

Under President Trump, deficits are exploding.

For the first seven months of this fiscal year, the government rang up spending that exceeded its income by about $531 billion, setting a new deficit record for the period and exceeding the prior year's deficit by approximately 38 percent.

Wherefore Art Thou , Dance? June 23, 2014. Being an art form as well as a form of physical exercise, dance is completely unique in its ability to create an incomparable aesthetic; the style of which other athletic ventures like gymnastics or figure skating merely emulate.

This binge is only the beginning. More is to come, with deficits projected to exceed $1 trillion annually as far as the fiscal eye can see.

The Republican Party under Trump is now the most profligate and debt-driving party in the nation's history.

Fiscal restraint is no longer part of the cloth the Republican Party wears.

On the global stage, it was once the Republican Party that built coalitions of allies that could be used to advance and defend our national interests.

This core idea animated Republican presidents prior to Trump.

NATO has been the keeper of peace in Europe during and after the Cold War. Its effectiveness was cemented back in the days of President Eisenhower, who understood the critical importance of working with allies.

President George H.W. Bush was able to fight the first Gulf War with numerous nations at our side, sharing both the military burden and the financial burden.

Bush understood alliances with other democratic governments.

Trump has been clear in expressing his disdain for such alliances.

During his trips to Europe, he either intentionally affronts our allies or, at best, fails to grasp the history of our nation's involvement with them.

Gay couple sues over US refusal to recognize kid as citizen

Gay couple sues over US refusal to recognize kid as citizen ATLANTA (AP) — A same-sex couple in Georgia said in a lawsuit filed Tuesday that the U.S. State Department is unconstitutionally refusing to recognize their daughter's rightful American citizenship. The State Department's policy treats married same-sex couples as if their marriages do not exist and treats them differently from married straight couples in violation of the law and the Constitution, according to the suit filed in federal court in Atlanta. It was filed on behalf of Derek Mize and Jonathan Gregg, whose daughter Simone was born in England in July 2018 via surrogate. Both men are U.S. citizens and are listed as her parents on the birth certificate.

Wherefore art thou sleep?” In order to be funny or cute. But I figure now is as good a time as ever to bring some enlightenment to the fact that it’s a common misunderstanding that when Juliet says this, she’s asking Romeo ‘where’ he is when she is actually asking him ‘why’ he is who he is.

America First - and by ourselves - is now the policy.

It is the same story across the board.

An interventionist industrial policy - specifically, the idea that the government should pick the winners and losers in our market economy - used to be the natural milieu of the left.

But Trump and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin revel in embracing those industries they like and punishing those they deem undeserving.

The administration's infatuation with industrial policy should concern conservatives who used to believe that when a government manages the marketplace, economies are stalled by the misapplication and waste of capital investment.

As for international trade, words are almost superfluous.

The GOP was once the party of economic expansion through access to world markets.

Trump and his team have turned this approach on its head.

The Republican Party of Ronald Reagan and the Bushes was one that sought civility. These past presidents believed that the person in the Oval Office ought to express and reflect the fundamental decency of the American people and our culture.

This idea has been frittered away in a stream of late-night tweets.

The underlying themes are fury, crassness and meanness. This is no small thing. It has changed the nature and perception of the presidency, both for the American people and the world.

Wherefore Art Thou ! © Red Bull Content Pool. One thousand pieces of art , from 100 artists and 30 countries, will be on show – and half the booths are dedicated to artists rather than galleries, putting the emphasis on new talent, emerging artists and new collectors.

Judd Gregg News from United Press International. Judd Alan Gregg (born February 14, 1947) is a former Governor of New Hampshire and current senior United States Senator from New Hampshire, serving as ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee.

To take a bit of license with Shakespeare: Wherefore art thou, GOP? Gone like Yorick.

Many look on this as a good outcome, of course.

The principles built over time by presidents like Eisenhower, Reagan and the Bushes were too "pro-establishment" for their tastes. They needed a fundamental overhaul, a complete shaking up, those people believed.

Trump made this argument and it got him elected.

But to call the president's policies "Republican" is a reach. They mostly reflect his many eccentricities.

They are his personal causes - conceived in most part, it seems, by watching Fox News shows.

He enthusiastically rejects the history and traditional perspectives of the Republican Party.

This is not a Republican administration.

The president's ardent supporters, who shout their adulation at his rallies, do not wish to be identified as Republican.

They are of a new party.

Their beliefs have no anchor in fiscal responsibility or international alliances - or, for that matter, in any commitment to this nation as an example of civility, opportunity and liberty.

This new party is one that merely responds to the president's whims, as expressed in tweets of limited depth and base vocabulary.

His ideas can and do change without notice or discernible ideological reason.

The only constants are populist anger and a flailing at people he deems his enemies, whether foreign or domestic.

This is a new party.

There is no doubt about that.

It has vanquished the establishment that was the party of Eisenhower, Reagan and the Bushes.

Those who subscribe to it should call themselves "Trumpians."

This will allow them not to be confused with the old Republican Party - ironically called the "Grand Old Party" - which has now joined "poor Yorick."

Judd Gregg (R) is a former governor and three-term senator from New Hampshire who served as chairman and ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee, and as ranking member of the Senate Appropriations Foreign Operations subcommittee.

Porch pirates beware: Package missing off Upstate woman's porch had 9 Tarantula spiders in it, report says.
(Video above: Other headlines from Tuesday morning) If this story doesn't scare porch pirates, we aren't sure what will. A Spartanburg woman called deputies Sunday about a package that she believed may have been stolen off her porch on Judd Street. The catch? It contained nine Tarantula spiders, valued at approximately $1,000.00. The woman told deputies she was due to receive the package at 10:30 a.m. Friday and had gotten a notification that the package had been delivered at 9:16 a.m. Friday, according to a report from the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office. When she went to get the package, it wasn't on her porch.
