Trump zeros in on mental health, supports background checks to fight gun violence

Trump zeros in on mental health, supports background checks to fight gun violence “These people are mentally ill,” Trump said of mass shooters, “and nobody talks about that.” Mental illness is a frequent talking point among Republican lawmakers when dealing with gun violence, to the consternation of their Democratic counterparts, who argue that the United States’ unique, widespread access to guns is to blame.

App allows citizen scientists to track monarch butterfly migration If you've ever pulled out your phone to take a picture of a butterfly, researchers want your help. A team from the University of Maine is using an app that lets citizens scientists along the East Coast take photos of monarch butterfly migration sites and log details about where they're found. The responses will be compiled in an online database and help researchers determine if their monarch migration predictions are accurate. According to the researchers, monarch butterflies conduct one of the most dramatic migrations in the world. Each fall, the monarchs in New England turn south and begin a 3,000-mile journey to their overwintering grounds.

The market likes some sense of stability, which is understandable.'

Williamson was likely referring to Trump's recently tweeted announcement escalating the trade war.

Trump wrote Friday morning that the US 'would be far better off without China' and that it would plan to impose an additional 5 per cent tax on $550b of Chinese goods before the year's out.

This means the US would raise its existing tariffs on $300b worth of Chinese goods from 10 per cent to 15 per cent starting September 1. The remaining $250b worth of Chinese imports would then see their tariffs raised from the current 25 per cent to 30 per cent starting October 1.

The tweet came on the heels of Beijing's reveal that China was planning to impose retaliatory tariff on $75b worth of US imports ranging from soybean to ethanol. China will also reinstitute tariffs of 25 percent on cars and 5 percent on auto parts, which had been suspended last December.

Williamson, who has not yet qualified for September's Democratic debate, said that 'The first thing that’s going to happen when any Democrat is elected is that this craziness is going to stop.

'The US economy is skewed in the favor of a very few people,' Williamson said, adding that she wanted to put an end to the last 40 years of 'playing with this trickle down economic theory which has not lifted all votes, it's left millions of people without a life vest.'

She said that she wanted to repeal Trump's 2917 $2 trillion tax cut for 'the very richest corporations,' and 'put back in the middle class tax cuts.' She also said she wanted to end fossil fuels subsidies and empower the government to negotiate drug prices with pharmaceutical companies, among other plans.

George III's reign was remarkable for having 'lost' the American colonies and also for suffering from mental illness at intermittent stages.
