By Ryan Wagman, McKeen’s Hockey lead prospect writer After months of waiting, the NHL Draft is suddenly, almost surprisingly, upon us. Round 1 will take place Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET on NBCSN ( livestream ) and Rounds 2-7 be Wednesday beginning at 11:30 a.m. ET on NHL Network. With so much about 2019-20 that didn’t go according to plan (but some that did – congratulations to the Stanley Cup Champion Tampa Bay Lightning!) and so much still unknown about what we can expect out of a 2020-21 season, a draft now seems somewhat anticlimactic. But outside of the fact that hundreds of players and their families – not to mention your humble analyst – will not be gathered in one cavernous hockey arena to experience the event together, there is still a lot to be excited about as we seek to put this traumatizing year behind us and look to a brighter future. I think that is something that fans of all 31 teams can get behind. The contents of this final mock NHL draft are based on the … [Read more...] about NHL Mock Draft: Who gets selected after Alexis Lafrenière?
If I had to boil down the political wisdom I’ve learned over four decades of observing, studying, writing, and debating, it would be this… Life in Rural America (which is where Republican Trump voters live and govern), is clean, safe and racially tolerant. Most places in America where life is dirty, polluted, dangerous, violent, and plagued with racial hate and race riots, are cities that are almost exclusively populated by and governed by Democrats. Outside of these Democrat-run cities, America is peaceful, safe, clean, and racially tolerant. What’s more, if you remove these Democrat-run cities from our national statistics, you will find an America that is overwhelmingly peaceful, safe, clean, and racially tolerant. Nevertheless, Democrats and their fake-media allies still blame Republicans for all of their problems. According to them, it is Republicans who are responsible for racism, pollution, and gun violence — even though, out here where we all live, our air, water, … [Read more...] about Nolte: Rural Trump Voters Already Live in the Safe, Tolerant Utopia Leftists Claim to Want
close Video Knee on neck of George Floyd 'direct cause' of death: Medical examiner FOX News legal analyst Mercedes Colwin and defense attorney Richard St. Paul join 'Fox News Live' to discuss the Derek Chauvin trial The prosecution’s case against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin drew nearer to a close Monday with George Floyd ’s younger brother offering emotional recollections of his late sibling while testimony from a police "use-of-force" expert told the court that no "reasonable" officer would have acted the way Chauvin did. Chauvin, 45, is on trial for the murder and manslaughter of Floyd, who died during an arrest in Minneapolis on May 25 Seth Stoughton, an associate professor at the University of South Carolina School of Law, judged Chauvin's actions against what a reasonable officer in the same situation would have done, and repeatedly found that Chauvin did not meet that test. "No reasonable officer would have … [Read more...] about Derek Chauvin trial: Prosecutors’ case nears end as George Floyd’s brother, use of force expert testify
WASHINGTON—Thursday morning on Fox News, President Donald Trump said openly he’s using the U.S. Postal Service funding to essentially alter the election outcome. “Now they need that money in order to make the post office work, so it can take all of these millions and millions of ballots,” Trump said, discussing funding for mail-in voting as part of coronavirus relief measures that he has repeatedly threatened to veto. “Now, if we don’t make a deal, that means they don’t get the money. That means they can’t have universal mail-in voting, they just can’t have it.” Trump had made a similar point Wednesday evening at the White House. But he sent a mixed message at an evening press conference Thursday when he said he wouldn’t necessarily veto any post office funding bill, but that he opposes universal mail-in ballots as potentially fraudulent, and that if the coronavirus relief package is not passed including the funding, then mail-in balloting won’t be feasible. “It would end up … [Read more...] about Here’s how Donald Trump could attack mail-in voting and claim a second term
SINGAPORE: Two years after founding his Uber-like taxi service, Anthony Tan was already unabashedly ambitious. “If we get this right, we can literally go into the history books,” the Harvard Business School-educated entrepreneur proclaimed in 2014. Seven years later, the 39-year-old scion of one of Malaysia’s wealthiest families is poised to do exactly that. His company, Grab, Southeast Asia’s most valuable start-up, is finalising the world’s biggest merger with a SPAC, or special purpose acquisition company. It would value his business at about US$35 billion and list it on Nasdaq.

He is the guy in Seat 1A and the first one off the plane,” says a lawyer whose firm works for Grab. Tenacious and driven, Tan also … [Read more...] about Commentary: Anthony Tan, the ‘unabashedly ambitious’ man behind Grab
